I thought the food was pricey and not that tasty. The restaurant smelled musty. I would not recommend.
The service was impeccable. Wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and portions were appropriate. Chef stopped by our table and ended up making a recommendation that my husband really enjoyed. This is a classic restaurant and our first time there despite the fact that we live in the area. We'd go back for sure.
Definitely have the salmon appetizer, served on a crispy potato pancake instead of toast - marvelous! Entrée was delicious, but the sides were a bit on the skimpy side. Go on a quiet weekday (not Friday) and the service will be outstanding. The bus boy at our table was the best I'd ever seen - closely watching the table to clear a dish when you were finished, but not so quickly you felt being rushed. It is in an inn, with a wrap around porch for savoring drinks in a summer's breeze.
Those familiar with L'Escale in Greenwich will find themselves completely at home with this menu since the chef current chef at Roger Sherman helmed the kitchen at L'Escale for many years. He has a deft hand with fish (every element of teh cold season platter was outstanding), simply grilled meats and dishes that allow him to explore the spice pallet of his youth. If you are a local regular you will enjoy the hospitable welcome and likely excuse the amateurish service. However, as a first time guest, when one pays top Manhattan prices for what would charitably be described as a below average country club experience its hard to give a restaurant positive marks for the overall value. Maybe on a quieter night (we went Valentines Day) the more seasoned staff dominate and deliver a total experience that matches the potential of the kitchen.
We arrived a bit late, still we were welcomed. As it was valentines day the place was a bit crowded. Our server Paul met with us immediately offered water and the sumptuous wine list.
We opted for the chilled seafood appetizer. My longtime love choose the duck and I had an amazing veal chop. Perfectly cooked, rare interior with a wonderfully crusted outside.
Delicious food and beautiful ambiance for a special Valentines Day prix fixe dinner.
So glad the Inn is here—such a special place! As my wife and I were enjoying our meal I realized we could easily hear each other by just talking normally. You almost have to shout at most restaurants.
We went for Valentines Day and had a very enjoyable evening. Great food and excellent service.
This restaurant has been a family favorite of my parents and now I am carrying on the tradition. Its's the quintessenial place for a special date night. New England charm at is very best!
Overall an excellent dining experience. Food was well prepared and flavorful. Staff was attentive and friendly. While it was not a jacket-required restaurant, anyone not in a jacket probably felt a bit underdressed. I imagine business casual works at lunch but the dinner crowd was much more dressed up. Just a heads up since we were expecting business casual.
had not been back to Roger Sherman Inn since they closed and then re-openned.....was a great dining experience and we had a nice table by fireplace. In addition to menu, there were specials. We had a great dining experience and glad we made reservations. Staff is very friendly and helpful......will retun
Lovely staff, they worked hard to make sure we were happy with everything. Nice ambience as well.
NYE dinner, superior execution on regular evenings.
Really wonderful place. The staff is exceptional, attentive, happy. The food is outstanding. My husband and I had our wedding here in October and they exceeded our expectations. How unique to find a place that has music which (1) starts early and (2) isn't loud.....but yet it's current and not boring.
New Chef, worth experiencing. Some of the classics remain on the menu so good if you want (now hard to find) French staples but if not there are some interesting new dishes as well. Rack of lamb was excellent and judging by our neighbors dish of lamb shank we may have not even had the best lamb dish in the house! We were all very pleasantly surprised. The service was absolutely 5 stars.
We have enjoyed dinning at the Roger Sherman on Christmas many times and this year was no exception. Would have preferred seating in the main dinning room but the fireplace area was an added touch that was nice. The owners and staff are always warm and friendly. The new Chef has chosen an excellent Menu both for Christmas and for other times. We look forward to dinning there again when we are back in New Canaan.
It was Christmas Eve and we were offered a table right in front of the bar where patrons stand.
I asked for a different table and was shown to a small table in front of the kitchen. It was a table for two that they added two chairs to to make it for four. Our bottles of peligrino and Wine didn’t even fit. We had to depend on staff to pour. We were sitting in the kitchen traffic at a timy table for prix fix $95 each. Plus we ordered two bottles of expensive wine. True, it’s a busy night but they should make sure that each table has adequate ambience. It shouldn’t be about how many they can possibly fit in!
The food and ambience were great, but the Roger Sherman needs to have more than one waiter in the dining room at lunchtime. Poor guy had too many patrons to attend to all by himself and we had to wait long minutes between courses and for coffee.
Service was very disappointing. No one was present at reception. We had to go a find a waiter to get seated. Even with few customers present, there was an extremely long wait to order. We had to ask for bread. Waitstaff was confused over what dishes to put on table. We had made a point of going to the restaurant to support this neighborhood establishment which had recently been ressusicitated after a proposed sale. Unfortunately, the experience was a disappointment.
