Their igloos are perfect for safe dining during covid. The waitress and the rest of the staff were excellent.
The heated igloo was phenomenal! We had such a great time and the food was delicious.
Absolutely loved this place. We dined in one of the igloos which was toasty warm and had a really pretty chandelier,which I have never seen in a dining igloo before. Service was great -- the waitress was very attentive and food came out really fast. Every single thing we ordered was delicious!! And the cocktail/beer list is great. We will definitely be back!
Solid food and excellent quality. Really cold inside and a couple items were late/missing. I would go back though the food was excellent. Pricy but good seafood.
The onion soup, Cobb salad, Burrata appetizer and believe it or not the oysters were all bland/flavorless. It was very cold last night so maybe it froze on the way to the table as we ate outside in the igloo JK. I am sorry to report this and I’m being completely candid but it is not worth it.
Our waitress and the rest of the staff were above and beyond. Igloo was amazing set for 5 of us but could have fit more. Salmon and French onion soup were both incredible and everyone else love their meals too. We did our son’s birthday but already looking forward to going back. Beautiful inside too
From the manager to the host to Alysen, our waitress… everyone was incredibly attentive and accommodating. We had a wonderful celebration for my son’s birthday in one of the heated igloos. Food was great!
Bill and his staff do a wonderful job - delicious food and very attentive. Their outdoor setup is fantastic (and warm) for those interested in minimizing indoor dining.
We met family midway in Westport for a delightful cozy meal in warm igloo. Just perfect! We shall do this again, soon.
Outdoor (Igloo) Service was excellent but unusual. They try to provide a COVID-safe setting, so the waiter serves while maintaining a safe distance. It works. It is a fabulously intimate and private setting. Food was excellent. Only disappointment… They ran out of their specials early.
So fun eating in the igloo! The food was excellent and so was the service. We could have possibly used one more heater, but I think thats because it was exceptionally cold and snowing. But having birthday dinner in an igloo was super fun and food was delicious.
It is always a great place to eat but especially during these tough times. I had reserved an igloo and it was magical.
Wonderful lunch - great service, food and atmosphere - beautiful fireplace
Excellent experience! Ambience, service, food quality. And super celiac friendly!!
It’s our Friday night place to go! Good food good people good surroundings good vibes
We had a great experience with the outdoor igloo. The staff was really friendly, food was prompt and good. Would definitely do again- the igloo was a lot of fun, made it feel like we were away somewhere!
The igloo was surprisingly warm and cozy - would definitely recommend. Just remember to be ready to order right away b/c 90 minutes goes by quickly when you're having fun!
Great way to have a covid-safe dining experience in outside igloo!
Igloo dining was delightful. It was clean, warm, and we’ll illuminated.
We had a great, very COVID safe family dining experience in one of the exterior igloos! Warm and toast, yummy food and outstanding service.
Lovely delicious dinner inside by fireplace. Good distance between tables. Service and food was wonderful. Next time we will try an outside igloo!
Love the igloos
Amazing dinner! Food and service great as always, Estevao is the best!! Our favorite restaurant, will be back again soon.
Igloos are super fun! Nice and warm, private - great for Covid safe dining!
Had so much fun in the igloo!
Great alternative to eating outdoors! ( the igloo seating)
Service was great
Excellent service. Salmon was superb and cooked perfectly. Whipped cauliflower was delicious. Martini was a generous pour.
One major disappointment was the bruschetta, which was served cold on bread that was not grilled or toasted. The toppings were skimpy and looked and tasted like they were made hours ago. I should have sent it back.
Fantastic service and food! Wonderful environment and a great way to celebrate the New Year.
Our server was excellent.
Food was good, but great. The vegetable bowl seemed dry and the Brussels and beets undercooked. Drinks were good and great kids menu.
We had dinner in igloo! The igloos are just gorgeous and very warm! We had a family dinner with grandparents and 8 year old kids and all of us were very comfortable and ate while dressed in single layer. Staff was great, food was good. Very nice and safe experience!
Food and service excellent. Igloos were brilliant and gave you both comfort from covid and privacy for a family event.
Our server was wonderful. The food was consistently very good. We love the igloo setting.
Took our kids and grandkids for dinner in the igloo. Exceptional service, everyone enjoyed their meals, and the ambiance of igloo was great! Highly recommend
Christmas Eve with family
Great food and service
We had the most delicious meal in an igloo! Was cozy and warm and our waitress was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.
It was a really nice dinner. The only thing that wasn't good was that the hostess put a piece of paper on our table indicating our "checkout time." This is incredibly rude. We tossed it on the floor and ate our dinner in our own time.
Patricia, 1.5 hours is allotted for each igloo reservation, as stated on OpenTable. We gently remind our guests of the allotted time, leaving a courtesy card on the table noting their checkout so everyone can enjoy their igloo. The guests before you received a courtesy card so your igloo would be ready for you. This is our second igloo season and not one guest has ever felt it rude nor disregarded our policy. I am sorry you felt offended, and hope we can serve you again soon. Bill Rizzuto
Great Menu, great staff. Very attentive but not annoying.
