Order took a long time I was ok with that it was St.Pattys weekend so it was a little busy or short staffed .Food was not all that great fries cold burger wasn't worth the price mac&cheese ok but the Brussels sprouts tasted burnt don't think we will be going back in the future
This is a great place to watch a basketball game!
Not the best place for a relaxing Sunday brunch. Definitely more of a lunch or dinner restaurant. Very good service.
Good for a young bar crowd. Not very busy still slow service, bad pizza, loud constant back beat, calamari very good. Over priced. We won't be back
Our party of 4 enjoyed the calamari and buccatini bolognese the most.
Food was very good, service was mediocre, there was only one waiter for the section and it took a little long. Played good music, there was a birthday party that night however the music was kind of loud for those not part of the party. Overall good experience, will return when the weather is nicer to get the rooftop experience.
7 pm on a Friday night. For a certain age group this restaurant is great. However, when we walked in, greeted by a very young hostess and energetic disco beat, we felt like we were walking into the past - circa 70's. The extremely loud beat never stopped and we watched countless young singles walk past our table.
If you are over 50 (or maybe even 40) I would think twice about having a relaxing seafood dinner here.
All that said, the food was surprisingly good (baked oysters were great), and the service (Asher) was very accommodating. They looked the other way when confronted with gray hair! lol
Service was horrible and it wasn't even that crowded. Went to celebrate my best friends bachelorette party and arrived for dinner (8:30 pm reservation for 6 people). Didn't get greeted at our table until 30 minutes of sitting there. Once our food finally arrived, we couldn't find our server for silverware and napkins that were missing from the table. When the server came back to ask how everything was we asked for more water and waited 15 minutes before he came back and we had to remind him. Then he disappeared and we had to grab a manager to get our check to leave. Food wasn't amazing and service was so poor, I would never go back again.
Read reviews and decided to try. Every place around was crowded but inside this place was empty. Now we know why. Upstairs and outdoors may be good. We didn't try. Downstairs and inside not worth it. Only good thing was waitress who seated us. Unfortunately she couldn't serve us. Language barrier with our waiter. Food was bad and bill very pricey. We won't be going back.
It was just amazing I loved it !
Were not able to assign a waiter for our table, resulted in significant delays with food and check...
This place is fun and the food is decent. I come for the ambiance and young crowd. It’s really fun when the weather is warm and you can go to the roof.
Appetizers were great. Brussel Sprouts side dish was awesome.
Should have gone upstairs to check out the rooftop...will check that out next time.
It was a bit drafty and cold where we sat...too much AC.
Nice vibe, lively, active, lots of TVs in bar area. Great outdoor deck with nice views and sunset. Food was good, not exceptional. Good beer list. It not huge variety of types. Noisy
First, they didn't want to seat us, despite our Open Table reservation, because they said "Open Table doesn't take into account our table turnover rate and we don't really have room for you. This is often a problem." Meanwhile, there were 6+ tables wide open. They seated us but acted like it was a big favor.
Later, the server placed our appetizer on the table...but no silverware or napkins. We had to chase her down for those items. At least she looked embarrassed.
Food was mediocre. My eggs were cold.
Soundtrack was insanely loud, especially considering it was Sunday brunch. You had to scream if you wanted to talk. And the music never actually turned into a "song" - it was just thumping electronica that NEVER VARIED for 45 minutes.
We will not be back.
Very poor. Expensive, loud, very slow, no anticipated service.
I was very disappointed when I ordered "Fried Chicken and Waffles" only to find out the fried chicken was somehow in the waffles. If the waffles are made with chicken then the menu should say so....very disappointed.
Great spot, tons of energy. Huge shout out to our great waitress Rachel.
Brunch menu was fantastic. So were the Bloody Mary's!
food and service mediocre. Quite loud on Saturday night, and appears to be good for groups, or burger & beer
Great time & good drinks! Menu is small but has options for everyone.
The manager greeted us at the door and stated the delivery truck had a flat and would be running late on some of their produce (orange juice, eggs, steak) approx. 15-20 minute wait. Hmmm, we were there for brunch and those items are essential to lunch. Although a few of our guests were running a few minutes late as well (by 11:45am), we still waited a good amount of time to order. I had suggested to the waitress, Fabian (sweet but slow) that perhaps her manager should have gone to the grocery store and purchase the items to hold the restaurant over. There were a few tables before us that had been been waiting already. It's unfortunate the circumstances; however, as a manager you make sure that your customers are fed in a timely and efficient manner. A light bulb might have gone on in his head or Fabian mentioned something to him bc then several minutes later, we see staff taking groceries from a car. Also, another point to be made is that not once were we offered a complimentary beverage for the inconvenience.
We had brunch. Food was great. Service was great...problem is they had music blasting at 12:30 in the afternoon and besides our party (which was 2 couples) there were a few families there with kids that also didn't feel like having ultra loud music. We asked 3 times to lower music and they said ok and then didn't do it . So it was way too hard to talk and enjoy all the other positives about the place.
One of the most disappointing restaurants I have been in a long time in the Stamford area.
One would expect that on a holiday weekend a restaurant is fully stacked. I ordered a drink - waiter came back "they ran out of the vodka" i asked for. I ordered a bloody mary, absolutely awful - i had to send it back. One person ordered wine - had to send it back - the glass was filthy. Another person in our party ( there were four of us) ordered his food, waiter came back much later - the kitchen ran of the fish. The music was so loud, we couldn't have a decent conversation. Mind you this all happened at 6pm, so it was still fairly early. Interesting experience to say the least.
Will go back
Service was extremely poor. We had a party of 4 and it took around 90 min for 3/4 of us to be served, with the 4th plate coming about 10 min after. In that span of time, the waiter was only able to get 2 rounds of drink orders in for us. After talking to who looked like a manager about the service, he said he'd take a round of drinks off our bill... He didn't. After complaining to the waiter about his efforts, he explained it was the kitchen's fault. But I don't think the kitchen is responsible for taking 30 min to charge our credit cards.
Food was good, but won't be dining here again.
We enjoyed a delicious beet salad to start, and then two yummy sandwiches; one was a crab cake with a perfect balance of crab and mayonnaise, the other a Caesar wrap that came with a side of Brussel Sprouts. Two demerits: one for the French martini which had to be sent back to be adjusted and the other because the reservation was not reported to Open Table until Open Table checked it out.
Wanted to try a new restaurant. We ordered appetizer, 2 salads and 2 entrees. Waiter brought 1 salad before appetizer and never brought 2nd salad. The entrees were very good. Pricey but good. Roof bar a zoo. Loose floor tiles on roof makes one question quality of construction.
I went with my mom for Mother's Day brunch. I used Open Table to reserve the table at 1:30pm. A little later brunch than expected, but that is all they really had. At that time there were for sure tables that were opened and easy to get a table without a reservation. There was a DJ playing some music a little too loud but we could still hear each other talking. The signature drinks there are pretty strong so beware. The brunch food we had was really good especially those Oreo pancakes! Overall great experience!
The restaurant has a nice menu, but surprisingly the preparation was at best mediocre and price was too high for the quality served.
Service was ridiculously slow, no beer on tap just bottled, outdoors is nice but nothing else to recommend it.
The food is mediocre and prices are kind of high which doesn't match up to the quality of the food. I was really excited about the truffle fries since I LOVE truffle fries. But i was highly disappointed with the truffle fries! They were regular fries with a truffle mayo sauce. Although the waitress said they were truffle fries with truffle aioli sauce. If you ask me, they were regular fries. And trust me, I know how truffle fries are suppose to tast like. Then we had the crab cakes which were undercooked! Not good.
During our dinner, they had a band playing which adds to the crowd noise from bar. I wouldn't recommend coming here for dinner if you're looking to have a conversation with whomever you're with since the live band and bar noise makes it difficult.
The service was a hit or miss. At the start of our first visit to this restaurant, the waitress was friendly and very helpful with walking us through the menu. After we received our food, it was difficult to get service for just water (which they don't serve unless you request. I thought it's common for every restaurant to just bring water at the very beginning...guess not)
They sat us near a large party of 15+ where sometimes we felt the party was over spilling with people standing right next to us having conversation in small groups.
Overall I think it's in a nice location near water in Stamford with the rooftop bar which I hear is nice during the spring and summer. But, I'm not fascinated by the food or service here. I'd only return back for drinks.
I went early on a Saturday night (6ish) so had none of the noise problems other people mentioned. That's the end of the highlights.
The food was mediocre across the board, at best. The soup was lukewarm. One of my favorite pizzas is fig and prosciutto. Seeing that on the menu is what steered me here in the first place. I was overjoyed to think I could find this a mile from home. Well, let's just say I won't be going back for that. The cheese wasn't really melty, the prosciutto was sparse and the fig was more of a drizzle than anything else. I took the leftovers home -- that I didn't finish it is a warning sign -- and eventually threw them out rather than eat them.
As for the view, I was seated at a table with a lovely view...of the health club across the street. Nothing says dining elegance like watching people sweat. I guess maybe the idea is to guilt you into ordering a salad rather than the mediocre pizza?
My only complaint was with my server who attended to every table around mine but never checked in our my party. Really disappointed.
Although it was a very busy night the service was horrible! The waitress was almost non existent!!!
I like SOTW but the Service could've been better. We didn't get any silver ware (even after requests) until after we finished our appetizers, and then the table was not cleared for our entrees,
we had to ask them twice to do so.
They need to make this restaurant feel warmer. Putting some heat on would be a good start. We went last summer and it was good. Food was much better and we ordered similar items. Service was good both times, but uncomfortable setting., especially during the holidays. Needs to be more festive!
Food was delicious. Service was good. Not all items on Menu were available. Ambiance was good, DJ kept playing with the volume, that part was weird. But overall a good experience.
My husband and I go all of the time and we are always introducing your place to our friends and they all seem to like it, also the food and the servers are awesome.
We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was! It is definitely a place for young (20-30) people with their very loud rooftop bar but we had an excellent meal. Appetizers were delicious and dinner was great! One of the best short rib meals we ever had. Who knew? Service was erratic but overall a very nice evening.
