Historic country Inn, really nice bar area and atmosphere from 1800's. Food is very good and service professional and friendly. On some nights the bar has live entertainment. Food is classic continential with a French inspiration. Duck and Lamb chops were especially good.

Sadly the alternative use (housing) of the site on which the oldest and finest dining establishment in New Canaan stands has brought it down. It will close with the year. While we have a few other pretenders to fine dining in New Canaan, none has the style or consistency of the Roger Sherman. It has been loved, and will be... More

We went when we learned the restaurant that we had planned to go to, but hadn't been to in a long time, had closed. This was another place we hadn't been to in years, and The Roger Sherman did not disappoint! Attentive service, willing to change a plate without a fuss, really great food, and they brought us a surprise... More

The Inn and the restaurant will be closing on Dec 31, 2016 and will be torn down and replaced with housing. Meanwhile, the restaurant is not up to its previous standards, but is still an attractive spot for a quiet dinner.

This beautiful restaurant I visited with my father several years ago when they had piano playing in the bar. The food was wonderful and my father brought many of his New York City clients there. I just love the historical ambiance of this wonderful Inn.

The Inn has it all together. Now, this was brunch, not lunch or dinner, but the total experience was excellent: very considerate staff, attention to detailed requests by our guests, well balanced menu, excellent presentation and food, all in a delightful atmosphere without tvs with well spaced tables for easy conversation. Strongly recommend the Inn.

We always enjoyed going to the Roger Sherman but no more. There has been a drastic change the the quality of their food. Started with the tomato bisque thickened with flour- a bad start. On to the shrimp cocktail made with low quality frozen shrimp with a translucent look and soggy texture with a smell of ammonia- took one bite.... More

I usually only go to the Roger Sherman Inn for special occasions, the bar or for brunch. But, this time a friend suggested it for a girls night out dinner. And, boy was I surprised. I had the sweet corn soup du jour which was awesome and the roasted chicken which was tender and flavorful. We all enjoyed our dishes:... More
