Love these guys! Great food, great service, and how many restaurants can you find in an old Schoolhouse?
The food was exceptional. The sweet potato soup was quite memorable and the branzino was light and done just right. We will definitely be back.
This was our first visit to The Schoolhouse but it certainly won’t be our last! The whole experience was a delight. The food was perfectly prepared and presented, and the service was impeccable. What a find!
We had a wonderful time at The Schoolhouse. Everything was presented in a beautiful way and tasted delicious. Cannot to return to try some more culinary creations!
As given by the eponymous name the restaurant is a single room with a friendly, caring, and efficient staff with a Chef whose flavorful work is superbly composed and balanced on the plate - never heavy or overdone.
An amazing experience. Best Burrata I have ever had.
We have been going to The Schoolhouse for every special occasion and important family dinner for the last few years, and it's hard to say what its best selling point is - the outstanding food, the exceptionally professional and gracious service or the beautiful setting.
Every meal we've had there has been delicious, always ended with their chocolate souffle.
I LOVE this restaurant.
Went for brunch. French pressed coffee was a great start, mimosa's, then egg in a hole, and a benedict. portions could have been a bit more substantial. Quality over quantity here. nice setting
Small but quiet place in an old single room schoolhouse—as the name implies. Food is not inexpensive, but it is excellent. Very nice wine list. Waiter asks at time of order if you would like a chocolate soufflé for 2 for dessert.
Definitely worth a try.
Once again Michelle knocked it out of the park with her delicious Monk Fish served in a bowl with broth and gigante beans--outstanding!!
We’ve been happy with The Schoolhouse for ten years now, but our meal Friday night was one of the very best. Each dish had many flavors, all harmoniously working together.
Always fantastic! Great service, great food! Will be back!
The School House is always excellent!
Always a treat for us, though expense keeps us from treats too often. Love to bring new people to the restaurant.
Staff was very attentive, felt fancy, but they weren't snooty! Wish there were more breakfast-like items on the brunch menu, but the french toast I had was delicious.
The luncheon meal was superb from appetizer to desert and espresso. The service was prompt without being pushy. As this was linch on a Saturday, the restaurant, which is quite small, was only half full so the noise level was low. Not sure how it would be when full.
Love love love. AMAZING food flawless service. Cannot wait to go back
Excellent food, excellent service.
It's always a fantastic culinary experience and night out. Great food and great service in a very romantic setting.
Loved it! A hidden gem!
LOVE going to the local Schoolhouse to dine! The staff are so warm and welcoming and accommodating- the menu is always great - and the cocktail selections are varied and very good! A winner again!
I look forward to every visit, regular customer, highly recommended
Food was just fabulous! Great place for a Special Occasion.
It's the middle of winter so based on the chefs reputation for serving locally sourced produce was only a little surprised to find only a Prix fixe menu on offer on a Wednesday night ( usually this is only available in Thursdays) . The venue is small and intimate and might benefit from lower ambient lighting and more candles but that is a minor quibble - the whole evening was delightful. The three course vegetarian dinner $48 came with paired wines for $75 - or you could add steak of fish to the third course for a small upcharge. One of us had the Atlantic char and it was presented with the skin perfectly crisped on top of the vegetables. Each small plate was perfectly presented, with the smoked roasted eggplant served with bok choy in miso in the third course particularly outstanding. Dessert was chocolate bread pudding in a caramel sauce with cooked fruit garnish. The paired wines from Long Island and the Finger Lakes were well chosen to balance each course. We particularly enjoyed the light sparking wine to start. Staff were attentive but not obtrusive.
Have been before- several times. Never disappoints, always very friendly and efficient staff and great food. Only minor drawback: harsh lighting at dinner.
Always wonderfully imaginative and delicious!
Always great tastes and welcome graceful atmosphere.
Great for a date night, even though a small and tight venue. The food and service are outstanding.
Best restaurant north of NYC. Food is always superb and service is excellent.
We had a lovely, romantic dinner. The food was outstanding from the bread and butter through to dessert. The staff was very attentive and we enjoyed meeting the chef who made her rounds to our table. Could be my new favorite in CT!
Uniquely delicious, friendly, and fun; we’re repeat diners who proudly bring guests with us!
We has a superb meal. The scallop appetizer was outstanding. I follow that by the filet of beef which was one of the most tender cuts I have enjoyed. The presentation was a visual work of art. Thank you so much for making our evening so special.
Always impeccable and delicious, high end food with welcoming warm service.
This is one of the nicest restaurants in the Westport-Wilton area. Limited offerings that are always interesting and beautifully prepared, and great service.
Valentine’s Day was outstanding and memorable.
Staff was so attentive and provided excellent recommendations. Food was absolutely wonderful and the menu was perfect for the holiday.
We loved our experience and look forward to dining here again anytime.
Longtime fan of The Schoolhouse! I've been here many times and keep going back because the creative menu is seasonal and different every time so it's always a new experience. Add to that the excellent service, a great wine selection, awesome cocktails and a classic Connecticut setting makes The Schoolhouse one of my favorites.
This is a very lovely restaurant. The service, food and atmosphere are outstanding. Although it was almost full on the night before Valentine's Day, the noise level was very low. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out.
We have visited the Schoolhouse many times and it is always wonderful. The wait staff is friendly, remembers what we like and goes out of their way to make us comfortable. I had a guest who was in a wheelchair and they helped bring her in up the ramp, brought her to our table and were quietly attentive. We always have a most enjoyable time.
For brunch my sister and I mostly choose eggs benedict which are superb. They have changed bread and it is not as wonderful, but is still very good.
We will certainly be back.. Thank you!
Delicious food and great ambiance
Food, service and ambience excellent. We have been there many times and we have never been disappointed. We eat in high quality restaurants in NYC and it compares favorably and often it is better.
