Tucked away in Wilton's quaint Cannondale Village overlooking the babbling Norwalk river, the restaurant is located inside a schoolhouse built just after the civil war in 1872. The completely renovated and stylish interior reflects the elegant and thoughtful cuisine of Chef Tim LaBant whose focus is on searching out the finest ingredients from both local CT farms and exceptionally passionate farmers from around the nation.

The School House remains one of my favorite places for brunch, or dinner. The food is excellent, creative and well executed. Services is great, just a little loud.

We had a great night at the Schoolhouse. The food was out of this world. I don’t think there was a bad dish on the menu. Everyone around us kept saying our delicious everything was. The service was fantastic. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and took amazing care of us. The only complaint I have is that there isn’t a bar to sit at- so don’t arrive early for pre-cocktails. Honestly the atmosphere is so nice that I would love to be able to do that.
