    We were so incredibly disappointed with our meal. Our waitress was fine, but the food was beyond disappointing. Pasta had zero seasoning and was as bland as can be. I ordered the steak free and I could not even eat half of it because the meat was such a poor cut and was just so chewy. And again, not seasoned at all. the bill came to $250 which is just outrageous!

    I am so sorry you did not enjoy your meal. The steak frites is sirloin flap, a flavorful, but secondary cut and it is definitely not as tender as NY strip. What was the pasta you ordered? Did you let your server know? Our goal is the complete happiness of every guest, and I hope you will be able to respond so I can take any needed actions for improvement. Thank you. Bill Rizzuto

    We can always rely on Rizzuto’s for the freshest fish and kindest staff in Westport! Oysters and crab cake were incredible, and we enjoyed our create your own fish dinner.

    Most importantly, the food was excellent. The service was attentive, but not particularly professional. I eat at a fast pace but before finishing my salad, my entrée came to the table. Later on, the server filled my near empty glass of beer with water. Fortunately, he also refilled my water glass. Not the end of the world, but it certainly shows a lack of attention to detail. Lastly, we ate dinner at just after 7 PM on an exceptionally warm and humid summer evening. The temperature and humidity in the restaurant were relatively uncomfortable, likely at least 78° and possibly higher. Every now and then some cool air came out of the vents so I suspect this was not an air conditioning problem for the restaurant. More likely, they chose to keep it warm. No bueno. I’d return for another meal, but if it’s a warm night, I’ll be looking elsewhere.

    Dear rds9, thank you for dining with us. I am sorry about the temperature, and I assure you in all honestly, there is NO WAY we would willfully keep the temperature at an uncomfortable level. One of our building's three AC units broke that day and the domino effect led to the dining room unit laboring harder than normal. We are back up and running. I will talk to our service team about being more careful filling glasses. Best regards. Bill Rizzuto

    Hosted a small gathering in a cabana. Service was amazing. Scallops and Tripletail were delicious. The new “pick a fish, sauce and 2 sides” is a welcome addition. Thanks for putting it on the menu!

    Everything was super Fresh and delicious. We ordered mahi mahi with pineapple mango salsa — amazing ! My boyfriend has blackened salmon. Let’s not forget the sides of yellow rice, veggies ( perfectly mandolin sliced) and mashed cauliflower. Everything was delicious. Steamers came with the most delicious and flavorful broth. Best I’ve ever had. Honey drizzled burrata and crab- simply delicious . Ring ding dessert was very good as was the salted caramel gelato.

    Hi Top tables are nice - but BIG crowd in Bar area made it impossible to hear each other and have conversation. IF, there is a big party, you should move the HH to the inside restaurant tables - there were only 4 of us - impossible to talk
