    My friend whom I was meeting was running a little late but the hostess was able to work with us for when we were ready. Great neighborhood vibe for Saturday brunch. Food was excellent. Would love to come back for lunch.

    Excellent food and service in a cozy neighborhood atmosphere. I found the ambience a little lacking . It could be helped by some simple tasteful artwork. Nevertheless, our group of 6 had a lovely evening.

    Room 39 is our annual tradition during the WSA (Seed Convention), we have eaten here at least the last 10 years. Room 39 has the best service, best food, best drinks, and an extensive wine list. The service, their fresh ever-changing menu (and the scallops) keep us coming back. They treat us so well, we talk about it all year. ...Now if they will bring back the Flaming Cheese appetizer...life will be perfect! Thank you Room 39 - we are customers for life!!!

    We ate here on a recent Friday night. We like coming here, even though it's a bit of a trek and the parking can be a challenge. We almost always do the tasting menu because it gives us a chance to try new things along with having some familiar dishes. We each had the butternut squash soup and it was good. I had the eggplant fries with sweet tobasco sauce. The sauce was delicious, the eggplant was kind of soggy. My companion had the gnocchi and it was ok. The entrees were surprisingly small. I had the duck and got two small pieces that worked out to about four small bites--they were good bites, but still. The lentils were good, tho. He had the scallops and got two small ones. The cauliflower with it was so-so. Desserts were ok. Honestly, our entrees were smaller than the previous courses which was a change. Service was ok, not what we were used to. We'll go back another time, but this was not up to usual standards.

    We have loved Room 39 in Westport for many years for a relaxed, quiet, neighborhood atmosphere, great service and delicious food using local purveyors. We have dined there 2-3 times per year for many years. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing this last visit and I think it was due to a change in the chefs. We did the 4-course prix fixe each and each course was just okay. There were cooking or taste problems with each course. Service was amazing as always. Unfortunately, I don't think we'll return.

    This was our first time to enjoy brunch here. The Eggs Benedict with Steak was perfectly done to my request. The corn beef hash was tasty. The servings were generous.The Orange Kettle mimosa was worth the up charge. Our waitstaff was attentive without being intrusive. Great affogatto for dessert was a perfect ending. Really glad we had reservations as every table was full when we were seated.

The noise level was very low, so we were able to conversate easily. The staff was kind and friendly and very helpful with the menu. Definitely hoping to go back soon!

    We love food, and have several favorite restaurants around town. Room 39 is a favorite. Excellent food, cozy and romantic, great wine list, not too noisy, personal attention. Came here for our 10th anniversary, and more recently, for another celebration with friends. Good for a date or romantic meal.

    The trout with seasonal vegetables was outstanding. My friend had the blended burger with fries and she ate it all. I sampled the fries and they were crispy and hot. Yum. At lunch the noise level goes up when there is a big crowd. Our server was great, they just needed another one of her. Just remember, sometimes slow food takes time.

    We did the tasting and everything was really good but it took a really long time in between courses. We didn't mind since this was our only plan but if we had something else it would be very annoying. From start to finish we were there 2.5 hours eating for reference. Our waitress was very apologetic and gave us a couple of drinks while we waited.

    We ate here on a recent Friday night. Ordered off the tasting menu, so we could try some new items on the menu. The new tempura peppers appetizer was tasty. My companion always does the gnocchi which he loves. We had nice glasses of wine, great service and a relaxing evening. Parking can be challenging at times, so allow for that.

    If I lived closer, I would be here all the time. We came here for an early dinner on a Saturday night and were the only ones in the restaurant. It has an upscale farm to table feel that isn't pretentious and makes you feel at home. From the handpicked flowers on the table to the local art on the wall, every detail is inviting. Our waiter was incredible and handled my every question with ease. He had an excellent understanding of the menu and ingredients and gave great tips on menu items, highlighting the local ingredients. I did the 4 course tasting menu so I could have a sampling of multiple items. The flavors of the gazpacho were intriguing to say the least (beets, tomatoes and a touch of heat) and the heirloom tomato salad was devoured. The goat cheese gnocchi was just okay in my opinion (the goat cheese was pretty overpowering), but the halibut was cooked perfectly. The only item that disappointed was the garlic shrimp. The rice was out of this world but the shrimp were overcooked and just downright unappetizing (I couldn't get the aftertaste out of my mouth). I will definitely be back. Service and atmosphere were top notch and the food highlights local ingredients with an interesting flair.
