    Food quality is really bad, service was normal, I don’t recommend this place for going to have a nice dinner, just for drinks. We had the New York Steak an it was over cooked and the sauce was terrible, the patatas bravas were tasteless, the only thing that was good were the Empanadas.

    My second experience at sound of the whale was trash!!! The waiters were lack luster, didn’t know what was available on the menu. Told us that things weren’t available, but we saw those items being served 5 mins later to other patrons. They got the orders wrong, and instead of owning their mistake, blamed someone else. Also I told them I didn’t like a drink that I ordered and the waiter acted like I should still pay for it , even though I only had 1 sip of it. The overall experience was disappointing, since I had been there last year and had a blast.

    Worst food ever .. got garlic parm wings didn’t taste garlic or parm and it was sweet. I ordered a virgin strawberry lemonade. He told me my order 3 times witch was virgin lemonade and still charged me for alcohol. And had to ask a manager when I requested it off. If you don’t want liquor why get charged for it? Very loud on rooftop part. Requested birthday sparkling in reservation had to ask in front of the persons who’s birthday it was.. 1 out of 10 for me. Never again.

    It's very possible that the restaurant was busier on the 2nd level as opposed to the main floor as various servers checked on our table and apologized for the lengthy wait for each item ordered. However, our waitress hardly checked to see how things were or how to accommodate us.

    After being seated for reservation and getting drinks we were asked to move tables. We got new waiter at new table and we told we had already placed order they said okay great I’ll go check on that. 25 mins later we still had not gotten food and asked for update was told by our waiter and another one our food would be right out. 15 minutes later still did not have food and asked for update when ordering more drinks and we were told they would go check. Finally at 9:45 (90 after our 8:30 reservation) we finally got our food.

    The server was nice but only checked on us once when we had our food. Never asked if we wanted another drink or dessert. Just didn't feel attended to. The food was fine. I got the pineapple fried rice chicken bowl. The Farro fried rice was good but I did not enjoy the chicken. It was a personal taste thing nothing to do with the quality. My husband got the half chicken and he said it was good. Just nothing about the service or food made us feel like we would want to go back. I always say though, that you should try a place for yourself as your experience can be totally different and this could be a place you would enjoy so if you haven't been go and give it a try, there is a good chance you might love it.

    We made a reservation for the rooftop. Arrived to be told it was over an hour wait and we could eat in the empty, dark indoor area. We walked out. Do you actually think people are making reservations to eat marginal food in a dungeon???

    Stopped for lunch while driving through Connecticut. The location near the ocean+roof deck dining on a bright sunny day brought us in. The roofdeck and were bustling but the view was of surrounding buildings. It was ok though as the service was friendly and the food was delicious! We’ll be back! Note: we entered on the 1st floor main dining room level and the music was so loud we never could have eaten there. It would have been perfect for a club night, but not mid afternoon lunch.

    Enjoyed our evening at Sign of the Whale. Started with drinks at the bar and went on to have dinner. Music was a bit too loud towards the end of dinner but overall a nice evening. Hop to go back sometime when we can try the outside bar and outside dining.

    Waiter misunderstood my wife's order and argued with us about what she ordered. The staff came back TWICE to convince my wife to eat the pizza she did not order. It was her birthday and very rude. Took 30 additional minutes to get the correct dish and we were made to feel that it was our problem and we were being unreasonable for not taking it. So disappointed

    My mom and I were passing through Connecticut from Virginia and ventured out for the evening. What an amazing little spot! We were excited to have the fresh oysters but they were out but that just meant we tried something else. We had the mussels and shared the salmon. Everything was fresh and perfectly seasoned and cooked. Service was excellent! I highly recommend checking this place out. Parking is a little tricky especially for us out of towners. It’s near a dog park so we got to observe all the cool dogs and owners having a fun night after dinner.

    This was the worst experience we have ever had a restaurant. We reserved a table for brunch to celebrate a special occasions with my best friends (I live in Florida and had flown in for the weekend). They live in NYC and had made the drive over. We were excited to try Sign of the Whale because we had heard great things from one of our friends, who knows the owners of the restaurant. The customer service with sub-par at best, and the manager was the rudest restaurant manager we have ever encountered. Our only request was to have more than 3oz of Orange juice for the mimosa special we ordered (we were four people!) and some actual glassware(they brought these 4oz cheap plastic cups). We even let the waiter know we would pay extra for the orange juice and glassware if needed. Most of the other tables had glassware (they kept saying they didn’t have enough—-with a fully stocked bar). We ended up canceling our food order with the hostess, and left. For a restaurant rated at 4 stars, in Harbor point Stamford, we were extremely disappointed with the quality of customer service provided. Would not recommend.

    Our waiter Save was excellent. However, the Igloo ambiance was shoddy at best. Seats were worn, table was sticky and not well heated. The price was outrageous for such a weak experience. Food was quite good but still not worth it. Sorry.
