Excellent restaurant week menu!
The tents were so pretty and created a great atmosphere. The food as delicious and service excellent
Love this place, never disappoints!
Fatima was a great waitress. I had the Fluke. I don't ordinarily eat Flounder but I trust Rizzuto's so I ordered it and I highly recommend it.
We sat outside and had a great time. Lighting could have been better but overall everything was great.
Very nice dinner. Wonderful options for outdoor dining.
Great family dinner, food was excellent. They were out of one dinner and gave a good recommendation as an alternative.
The oysters were great with a big selection. They offer indoor, outdoor an outdoor private cabanas for diners. Great bar menu with excellent Sangria. Menu had some interesting choices; I had the Paul Newman Pork Chop that was extra thick an cooked just the way I wanted it, my wife had the pasta which offered a variety of sauces, pasta including home made ravioli, vegetables, meat. She had the homemade ravioli which was delicious. Service was excellent and we are looking forward to returning.
I had the Red Snapper special. It is new to the menu and it is terrific. The balance of flavors is outstanding and the capers provide an interesting taste. As always get the fish special when you dine in the evening. Andi was as always a wonderful server.
I'm so happy Open Table recommended this restaurant to us--what a find!
We were returning home from the Norwalk boat show and needed to eat. Rizzuto's popped up right off of the highway. Fortunately I requested outdoor seating. They have the most adorable little, private cabanas set up for each party with lighting and firepits. My only regret is that we didn't get here later to take advantage of the lighting ambiance which I'm sure is lovely. Food, drink and service was really good. I'd highly recommend and come again.
Great service, beautiful space, and delicious food!
Brunch on the patio today was fantastic! Our lobster rolls and salads were to die for. Our server was outstanding. Looking forward to dining again!
Probably the worst salad i have ever had in my life - a packet of arugula drenched in extremely sour dressing, 3 slices of green apple and costco cherry tomatoes topped with a chicken breast so dry my shoe soles are softer.
Good, atmosphere and waitress were awesome! Easy to make a reservation too.
This was a great choice! Everyone enjoyed their meal and the cocktails were delicious too! The crab cakes were particularly good! We sat in an outside tent/cabana. Definitely plan to go again.
Very pleasant outdoor eating experience
Enjoyed a family dinner on the patio. Teresa was our server, and very friendly and attentive! Seafood and pasta were fresh and tasty. Food came quickly and staff was friendly.
I’ve enjoyed Rizzuto’s for many years and highly recommend! The food and drinks are excellent and they always have awesome service!! One of my favorite places to eat in Connecticut!
Food & service was spectacular as always! Highly recommend the clams casino and shrimp ceviche specials!
Food was very good and the service was stellar.
Outdoor tents was a great solution for COVID protection.
Everything was wonderful - the food, service and the atmosphere!
There were four of us and we all had an great time and the food was excellent. We sat outside as the weather was glorious and it was just perfect !! We ordered the halibut special, fig barbecue chicken pizza, summer vegetable salad and fish & chips - everything was excellent. We all highly recommend going if you haven’t tried this place yet. Our server Lindsay, was super friendly & very efficient - thank you !!!
Our server Andrea, was the best. Polite, informative, funny and personable. She made the whole experience.
First time and it was absolutely amazing! The service was outstanding and the food top notch! We went for my mom's 70th birthday and she was so happy with everything! I definitely recommend!!! ❤
We had an amazing time. The room was so comfortable, the food was absolutely delicious. Our waitress was just wonderful. Looking forward to another great meal with you in the future. What a great place!
Andi waited on us and as always made the evening very special. We each enjoyed one of the specials, halibut for me and scallops for my wife. We finished dinner with a tasty Summer Berry Buckle.
I went in for a dinner with my son before he goes off to college and we couldn’t have been more impressed with the place! The hostesses were quick to help us and seat us where we wanted, the service was fantastic, the patio was so gorgeous with the string lights and the view of the bridge in Saugatuck, and the food was just out of this world. The best fish and chips I’ve ever had. Don’t forget the dessert, which was life changing. We will definitely be back!!
Excellent service and food always.
My wife and I came in for a Sunday night dinner date and let me just say WOW. Food, service, atmosphere, drinks, everything was fantastic. The patio was incredible, lush with flowers and greenery, breezy, cafe lights strung overhead. The parking lot with the cabanas was gorgeous, lanterns in every tent with fairy lights, and palm trees scattered sagaciously throughout. It was seriously an incredible experience for the two of us. I would highly recommend dining with rizzutos, they have done an amazing job providing a safe and stunning environment for all to enjoy.
Outstanding Service and Food. They created outside seating in the parking lot for service during the Covid. We enjoyed a great leisurely lunch outside under the tent despite a light rain. (We did not get wet!). Our waiter was outstanding. It can be loud at times with traffic going by it did not detract from our experience.
Our favorite Westport restaurant.
Good food range and preparation. Service a little slow. Parking difficult. Great people watching though.
Outstanding food and service.
Wonderful restaurant! Our server was amazing. Food was good, a bit pricey for what the meal came with however everyone was delicious! Loves the outside seating! Would definitely recommend!
Simply delicious. Food was excellent and came out fast, server was very friendly and helpful, great decor and vibe! Can’t wait for next time
Props to Rizzutos for creating the most amazing outdoor dining ambience in Westport! Our appetizers and entrees were all exceptional. We shared steamers, and then I had the halibut special and my husband ordered the scallops. Both were to die for. Service was top notch and professional. Thank you!
Friend in from out of town. Love the private tent as you get an intimate dining experience - quiet and you’re outside so you feel Covid safe. Halibut very good, burger and salmon good.
The Only issue we had was that our out of town guests oyster appetizer was extremely delayed 10-15 minutes after everyone elses appetizer arrived. We checked on it twice ‘it’s coming right up’
Our waitress was lovely, and gluten free pizza was prob the best I’ve had. Outdoor dining decor could be a bit more elevated.
Great night out with my family! Fresh and super delish food! Our Server was friendly, courteous, OUTSTANDING!!!! We'll be back! :)
