The service here at the Halyard was amazing. Our waitress Tricia was extremely personable and efficient. She allowed us time to eat at our own pace and enjoy our meal from appetizers to dessert. The rest of the staff from bus-girl to hostess were very accommodating, kind and helpful as well.

Dinner was delicious, and our server was courteous.
We enjoyed the scallops very much. We went rather early,
because we had little children with us. It was quiet and relaxing.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary on the deck outside Everything was just perfect. Cocktail menu ver original, great wine list as well. I had the ricotta truffle tartine which was so delicious and decadent and large portion ( 2 people can share) it was sweet and savory and sublime. My husband had the beet salad which was a large portion as well. For entrees I had the swordfish which was presented beautifully and cooked perfectly. Husband had the chorizo crusted halibut which he enjoyed . We did not have dessert because we were too full! The sunset was spectacular and completed our evening . Can’t wait to bring friends .

The space is beautiful and well-staffed with a fantastic view of the water and the sunset. Each in our party started with one of their specialty cocktails--all great. The foie gras app was perfect and the meat dishes were done well (not well done). The fish dishes were a bit more problematic--all a little dry, overcooked and too salty. We all agreed that many of the dishes were salted to excess. The service was extremely friendly and polite, however, they could have been a bit more attentive to details--eg., finished cocktail glasses sat on the table well into our wine course and main food course. The deserts were divine.

Service and Covid precautions were spot in. Ate indoors and separated by more than enough space. Food good (crusted cod with chorizo, and biscuits with salt were excellent, the rest, good)
Biggest complaint, as in the past, is the acoustics and noise level. There are no sound buffers, I.e. carpet, fabric on walls or on the high ceiling, so sound is intensified and it is necessary to almost shout to converse with table mates.
Portions good sized and reasonably priced.

The food was average, a little bland bland but not horrible. The service was terrible though, only about 7 tables filled but we could not get Someone to take our orders, drop off the check, pick up the check, etc without waiving our arms in the air after waiting each time for over 15minutes. Maybe we were there on an off day but it ruined our experience unfortunately.

The Halyard with its views of the Long Island Sound and choice menu is one of our favorite lunch destinations. Our request to seat by a window was happily accommodated by the host staff. The lobster roll was perfectly seasoned with meaty chunks and the burger with the foie gras topper could be my new favorite burger combo!

We were seated in a side room because they were having an event in the ‘other’ room. No one told us this would be the situation and we had made reservations, where we we was totally unattractive With no sense of decor and we looked through dirty windows to the sound.
I had scallops with risotto. The scallops were delicious but the risotto was cold. The wait staff was generally nowhere to be found. Our request for a second glass of wine never happened. We requested a bit of bread, which was ‘an extra’ and that was a forever wait.
Eating full priced entrees in a dump.
Never again.

Excellent food and service. We ordered the biscuits with butter and truffled ricotta on toast for appetizers. It was bursting with flavors. For entree, we had the scallops with rissoto and added truffles. We were pleasantly surprised by the truffle shavings on the toast so couldn't resist getting more.
The service was wonderful, we were given a lot of room and didn't feel rushed at any time. The sunset views were to die for.
The only feedback is that outdoors was really windy and chilly, some heat lamps would be wonderful!

We went to The Halyard at the last min. Partly because it stayed open a hair later than other places, and we really wanted some good seafood (non-fried). Some of the photos gave more of an informal feel (possibly touristy), but the ambiance and the food were much nicer than expected. Key thing for us, though, was sitting outside (or not in the big main room.) We were seated inside in the big main room at first and it felt loud and cafeteria like (maybe it’s more for people in their 20s and 30s), but we moved outside and it was lovely and that was even while it was dark. It would have been gorgeous to be outside before dark, but the music playing and the sound of the ocean was lovely regardless. The scotch cocktail was very good. (We’re big on scotch, rye, bourbon cocktails.) As for the food, we started with the green chickpea hummus and the ceviche. The ceviche was excellent, hummus so so, but the two together was great - using chips for both the hummus and ceviche. Yum!. (I would serve the ceviche with chips.) For our meals we got the scallops and the halibut and both were excellent. I will add that we are usually tough critics and do a lot of gourmet cooking ourselves, and we were very pleased and impressed to each love both choices. Each were fresh, cooked perfectly, and had a great blend of flavors. We got the cheesecake dessert which was a bit disappointing. Not creamy as we were expecting, but fine enough. Try to get there with some sunlight, but not a must-do.

The food was absolutely delicious but the service was really poor. Doesn’t seem like the waitress was trained at all. We really wanted a bottle of wine with our dinner and she was no where to be found then our food came out so we grabbed someone else by the time anyone acknowledged us we were done with our food.
