Westport Cafe & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Wonderful dinner at Westport Cafe. Had been to brunch several times but this was our first dinner. Well balanced selections with interesting twists on traditional entrees without being too out there. All sauces were spectacular. Salmon with broccoli and ginger was so fresh as was the lemon and pea ravioli. Shrimp and crab cake was awarded two thumbs up by our entire group. Escargot could have used a little garlic. Lovely atmosphere. Fair prices. Great time!
We love Westport. The kitchen is extraordinary. Tonight as always we love pomme frites for a starter. Our mains of mussels and the scallops were perfectly executed. For a palate cleanser the arugula w truffle oil was wonderful to lead to our finish with blissful cappuccino and bread pudding. Our bartender also made a “special” savory tequila mixer for my brother that we all loved. And never forget your server! Fab!
This week, I discovered Westport Cafe and Bar. Not sure why I didn’t know about it long before now; however, made up for the lost opportunities as we ate here twice this week. Evening #1: a group of gal pals ate here before heading onto the theater. Evening #2: a couples’ night out. Both experiences were outstanding on all levels. Appetizers between the two meals: Pomme frites, cheese board, salmon, and ravioli...the frites were a huge hit: hot, salty, crunchy and creamy! Yummmmm!
The seasonal soup, roasted cauliflower with cashews, was the perfect beginning on a cold night. Truffle risotto was perfectly al dente and perfectly seasoned. The portion was quite generous. The salmon entree was a great call, the salmon was moist and tasty. The final guest ordered a pasta entree and didn’t leave a morsel.
The service Nick provided was exceptional. He was friendly and welcoming. He answered all our questions about the menu with grace and patience. His enthusiasm to ensure his customers enjoyed the dining experience was appreciated by our group. We will return...often. Next time, we hope to make it to their weekend brunch.
What a pleasant surprise! I don't know why we hadn't discovered this restaurant before. We had an impromptu family date and looked on Open Table for what was open right away. Good luck ensued. It is French food and atmosphere with great music playing at the perfect volume to allow conversation. Service was excellent. Not just pommes frite, but profiteroles, too! Good wine list. Really a bistro. We will be back.
First, be prepared to wait at brunch if you do not make a reservation. (Also be prepared for the dirty looks you get if you do make a reservation - Westport Cafe is TERRIFIC about honoring reservations!)
The only negative is that someone was not adept at making coffee the Sunday we were there. I had to send back two cups of coffee as they were, quite literally, FULL of grounds.
The food was fantastic, as usual. I especially recommend the "Crispy Fried Chicken". My only caveat would be to order the gravy on the side, as I did not like to co-mingling of the sausage gravy and the brioche french toast - but that's a personal preference.
Terrific spot and even better food!
Wonderful, authentic French Bistro in Westport. Nick, the co-owner has created a warm and unpretentious atmosphere. Being our first time here, Nick reviewed the menu with us and made suggestions. They offer an extensive happy hour with discounted appetizers and wine/beer. I highly recommend the shrimp and crab cake. My spouse had the steak and frites and I had the fish special, sea bass. Romain, the executive chef takes great pride in the innovative menu. At one point during the evening he stopped out of the kitchen to greet the patrons. We ended our meal with profiteroles and the croissant bread pudding. The desserts were large enough to share, but why should you when they are this delicious?
We went during restaurant week, ordered off RW menu for one of us and ala carte for the other.
Service was great, even though RW is often crowded and busy. We had excellent care from lovely people.
Food was just amazing: creamy onion soup and croque madame, simple but outstanding. The RW menu had pate, braised beef and banana creme brulee, all wonderful.
Interesting cocktails and wine.
Just a wonderful experience.
Had a great brunch with a group of 7, the atmosphere is cute but casual, they offered a free drink with a brunch menu item which we all loved and our waitress was friendly, helpful, and attentive. I think if our group had been any bigger we would have been too large for the space but it worked out really nicely and we all enjoyed the delicious food!
My friends and I enjoyed our holiday brunch a lot one omelet, two Benedicts and a chicken hash were all delicious, and the service was very attentive. The noise level was pretty high - not a surprise given the packed house and bad acoustics. The biggest complaint remains finding a parking spot. Nothing much to be done about that.
We had a reservation at 8:00 and they make us wait until 8:40 and the hostess was very unapologetic about it. Start us off on the wrong foot. Got better from there as the food was very good and the service was too. Just expect when you get a reservation that you will get your table on time or at least the host will try to make it up to you some way.
We were seated right next to the door and it was terribly cold. We asked for a different seat and was told there were none. When the waitress stopped by to greet us we asked again and were able to get another seat thankfully. My wife was told about some type of wine. It was really good. When we got the bill the single glass of wine was $20. Since we were not told about the cost and it was not on the menu we objected to the cost. They adjusted the price of the glass of wine to $10 which seamed reasonable. The food was good our waitress then our waiter at the next table transferred to did a great job. Seating was tight however It had a nice atmosphere. A few issues but overall they did a good job trying to take care of our concerns
We chose Westport Cafe & Bar because we were looking for a French Restaurant prior to going to Les Miserables. Looking at reviews & menus, Westport Cafe looked like a solid pick. We were so glad we chose this restaurant. Four of us shared the cheese tray & the oysters from the happy hour menu. Then each of us ordered something different for dinner. My creamy risotto with black truffle was the best risotto I’ve had in years. My friends were also quite pleased with their entrees: seafood fettuccini, croque madame, & the Tuesday night special, steak with pomme frites. We also shared 3 of the delicious desserts: chocolate mousse, profiteroles, & bread pudding with Angles sauce. The excellent food was matched by wonderful service from Laken. I will definitely be back.
This was a wonderful experience! This is a very comfy adorable little restaurant. We had the cheese plate, Island Salmon and Braised Beef….all were wonderful! Best meal in a very long time!!
Our waiter and the wait staff could not have been nicer. Great experience!!
