Who would have thought that this tiny, out of the way place would deliver? We were here for a large family lunch and the staff here delivered in many ways. It was excellent from start to finish. Great food, attentive service. Will I come in here again? If I am in Wilton again, it will definitely be on my list... More

My wife and I went to Schoolhouse at Cannondale for our 44th Anniversary Dinner. It was their fixed price meal which they serve once each week. I was told this was the best restaurant in Wilton and I have no argument with that. Interesting dishes. Excellent wine choices can be included at a higher fixed price. Loved the entire experience...

This is a difficult review to write. Let me start by saying that my wife and I had a wonderful meal here this past weekend. Great food, table service and decor. So why three stars?

Cozy. Warm. Inviting. Truly charming. Wonderful service. Portions of each course all right sized - not too big, not too small. Every morsel was worth each bite. Piping hot parsnip and apple soup, amazing appetizer of chicken confit, delicious duck and brilliant branzino - all perfection. Sublime wines. Decadent desserts of panna cotta with crunchy granola, salted caramel and caramelized... More

Friends have recommended this place since I returned to CT. We live 30 minutes away so it's taken us a bit to get here... Last night we enjoyed a wonderful dinner, better than any we've had in our hometown of Greenwich. The two husbands had the duck and cleaned their plates, I had the branzino which was perfectly cooked with... More

Phenomenal service along with exquisite food right here in Wilton. Creative menu and a excellent wine list make this our new favorite restaurant. Make sure you try the chicken dish just exquisite.

Nice environment. Quality of meals did not match the price. Cocktail (Manhattan) as tasty. Pork entree, was priced a la NYC, but no where near the quality.

Love love this tiny gem in our town. The restaurant is small and intimate. The food is amazing, sourced locally. Try the prix fixe menu on Thursdays or the amazing brunch on Sundays.

This is a tough place to get into so it is essential to book ahead. It is well worth the visit. The food is all sourced locally and the imaginative combinations make every meal very special. Great for special occasions and Brunch on weekends.
