A frequent destination, the Rowayton Seafood Restaurant never disappoints! Food is excellent, there are ample alternatives on the menu, service is friendly and prompt. Wine selection is also very good.

The Restaurant has only gotten better over time. The restaurant is one of the rare places where the ambience, service and food are all tops. Great for seafood and perfectly prepared meats. Enjoy the upbeat ambience and don't forget to make a reservation.
