The food was absolutely divine, the service impeccable and all done in a friendly, no attitude atmosphere. It's just a great spot if you're looking for a nice but not stuffy dinner experience.

Nice atmosphere. My risotto was badly over salted to the point that I couldn’t eat it note -they did offer to replace it but I opted not since my date would have been long done eating before I got the replacement.

Our service was professional and spot on. My cocktail selection was Pimm’s Cup. Amazing! I had black truffle rissoto which was as described. My husband was pleased with his braised ribs on mashed potato. But once again our service was most impressive for our dining experience. We will be back again.

This was my second trip. Once I had the endless mussels and pommes frites, this time the steak and pommes frites. I've also tried their black truffle risotto. First, the pommes frites are truly the best, hands down. The steak was perfectly prepared to order and served with herbed butter and bernaise. Wonderful. The risotto is one of the best I've ever had - creamy, flavorful, rich. The mussels are on the menu but not usually endless - it was a Bastille Day special. Still, I highly recommend them - split an order as an appetizer. Prices are reasonable, the wine list is limited but quite good, and the atmosphere is like that of a Paris bistro. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

The food here is out of this world. I did the Bastille day 3 course menu and each course was delicious. The shrimp were juicy and in an amazing sauce. The duck confit was heavenly. The strawberry soup was very refreshing and a perfect end to a heavy meal.

I've always enjoyed eating here, even though the noise level is often a challenge. After my most recent experience I'm over it. So, so loud....can't even enjoy conversation with a friend. I'm outta there.

Our server Andrew was wonderful and attentive. We went as a date here because of reviews and menu. The lamb chops were honestly just ok and under seasoned. People at the bar were literally screaming at each other. Which is great but I figured it was more of a romantic and upper scale place.

The music speakers were much too loud when we came. After moving us to a table farther away from the speakers, the music was turned down. It was quite hard to carry on a normal voice conversation at first. We were glad it was taken care of.

Salad was swimming in dressing. Frites were good, but steak was tough. Wine was over-priced.

The Steak Frites is always good as are the craft cocktails. Our server was attentive and efficient. What we did notice was that the noise level was very loud and it was hard to hear each other. Overall, great food and service!

The eggs benedicts-- all 3 types were delicious. Loved their homemade English muffin (so tender you could cut it with a fork). We got the apple fritters for an appetizer and they were just okay-- I didn't get any apple chunks in mine so it was basically just a cinnamon fritter. It was very hot in the restaurant-- didn't seem like the AC was on so was slightly uncomfortable

Westport Café & Bar was an excellent choice for Mother's Day brunch. Our server was knowledgeable and was open to sharing recommendations. I had the Croque Madame and my date had the Shrimp & Polenta. Both were delicious and the price point was on target. We'll go back!

This is a quaint/small, clean, well lit café with a big menu (not in the number of offerings, per se, but with the diversity of offerings). We were there for Saturday Brunch, which comes with a "free drink" (choice of 3 drinks). First, the mussels in coconut sauce are amazing - a bit of a kick to them as well. I had the salmon eggs benedict, my daughter the crepes, and my wife the salmon salad. Ample (not huge) portions - we didn't leave hungry. The cocktails were well made (the bar area is smallish - maybe 8/10 chairs, but well-stocked) and fun. As you can tell from this review, I'll return.
