Mother Daughter Brunch
Food was AMAZING!!
Every time, The Cottage is outstanding. We've never had less than an amazing meal at the Cottage and the staff is wonderful. You won't be disappointed!
The food was amazing!! Tables set apart. We felt very safe. Service was top notch
We sat outside at a high top.. felt very covid safe and the food and service were great!!
Fantastic food, excellent service. One of our favorites.
Always excellent! One of our favorite places in Westport.
It was a chilly night and the patio was cold despite the heaters. Wish I brought a blanket!
Great food and ambiance. Bit pricey for the portions
A little jewel hidden away off the busy post road.
An original menu that is both inspiring whilst not being intimidating
Perfectly presented, portions that are just right and a balance of choices that suit all
An excellent wine list that allows enough choice without creating so much choice as to be intimidating
As an international business man I think I am qualified to rate this excellent restaurant
It is right up there with any other Bistro Challenger
Waitress was very nice and helpful with suggestions. Food and drinks were great. Will recommend and go back again.
Always excellent...food, atmosphere and service. The best!
Outstanding service and meal. Consistent. Best food in Westport
A place that has a great deal of imagination when it comes to the composition of lovely food presented beautifully. It’s all there- – great service-empathy and a kitchen that goes the extra mile
My fav restaurant in Westport. Neither is to die for! Service is great and so is the food.
Consistently fabulous service, food & cocktails. I appreciate their covid-controls also make me feel quite safe, including the new outdoor seating.
The Cottage is an exceptional restaurant. All of our dishes and cocktails were on point. In particular, the crab toast and squash agnolotti were standout dishes among the best we’ve had in recent memory.
Server was amazing ! Food was great, we’ll be back for sure. Thank you
We had the pasta with the egg. The pasta itself was perfect. The egg, cheese and meat ended up being rich and heavy. We didn’t finish and that’s unusual. If you could come up with a pasta dish that’s lighter - more veggies - that would be great. thx so much.
This place does it right from soup to nuts. Attention to detail is a must in the fleeting fine dining industry. Creating a casual feel, yet still elegant and proper is not easy to obtain. The Cottage makes you feel at home while not forgetting that you are at an established, finer foods eatery. Foie gras is a smash hit with lightly smoked hazelnuts, cherries and just enough greens to give the dish balance. Corn tortelloni is also a must have before corn is out of season. I hope they bring this back every summer. Salmon and chanterelles is a winner here as well with a grainy mustard cream and sun choke puree. Eats lighter for a perfect late summer meal. Staff was on point, drinks were spot on and this place gets high marks all round. Overall I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an elegant date night or if you just need to be pampered with some delicious food and an attentive waitstaff.
The appetizers - crab toast and beet salad - were sooo good.
The halibut entree was disappointing. It arrived cold and the sauce was amateurish. I would still go back to try out some other entrees with hope they are on par with the quality of the appetizers.
Always fantastic on all levels
This place never disappoints. Such delicious food in a warm and inviting setting. The best!
Amazing from start to finish.
Creativity is amazing. Can’t wait to come back.
I would recommend this restaurant to friends. It was incredibly delicious, from the cocktails, to the appetizers, to the main dishes. Can't wait to go back again!
Dinner out with the family
Food here is amazing, better than The Whelk. Get the scallop appetizer, it is amazing. The Halibut is also great. Great atmosphere, lovely staff and all around one of my favorite gems in Westport.
Fantastic food and fantastic service. The outside patio is perfect.
Amazing food and service for any occasion. Wow!!’
Always great. Excellent food and service. Has a personal touch.
Always an excellent experience. Food is out of this world with service to match. My favorite restaurant in Westport.
We have been there a few times. the food is very good, the outdoor patio is very nice too. The service is just plain bad. Waitstaff very friendly, but not attentive at all. we had thought the first 2 times were bad luck. but 3 strikes for us on service.
Best in town. Great patio, great service, outstanding food
Always great...made even better by the proactive, thoughtful hostess. We had a reservation for inside made weeks ago, and shortly after they started accepting outside reservations, she called to ask if we would prefer outside.
Was a nice lunch all good ...
The cottage burgers and fries were awesome as usual! We ate inside and felt very safely distant from the next table. Service was friendly and anxious to please. We will be back to sit outside next time.
This place never disappoints. They recently added a deck with beautiful table set up. Truly wonderful and super accommodating staff, food is out of this world, so as the wine and cocktail list. Best restaurant in the area, no doubt.
Simply the best in Westport
Stumbled upon this while traveling - a great option when you can't get a reservation at Terrain Cafe......
