Arethusa al Tavolo
The food was fantastic and the staff very responsive. It was a great dining experience. It was a little noisy.
Always excellent, wonderful staff.
Arethusa did an outstanding job from start to finish! Always a wonderful experience!
Outstanding Tasting Menu! Great Presentation! Great Service! Should have a couple of Michelin Stars!
Lovely setting and great food.
Great service, high quality ingredients and delicious fun food!
Not what you would expect in Bantam, CT, but worth the trip. Has to be the best in Litchfield County. They have food for all, and it is quite worth. We were only sorry we just had time for one meal, but if you are in the area, this is the place to eat. It came highly recommended and did not disappoint. They do it all well, professional, GREAT menu (that can even accommodates kids) and nice winees by the glass. Well conceived and if you go you will enjoy.
Amazing, as always!
The staff was attentive to every detail. We were greeted with a handwritten thank you for celebrating your anniversary card at the table. Our server was very knowledgeable about all menu questions. The food was exceptional from start to finish. If you can get a reservation run don’t walk to get the chance to experience this amazing culinary experience!!
First time trying out Arethusa, and it was an amazing experience. The wait staff was very efficient and on top of everything. Also everybody including the food runners were polite and energetic, anything to brighten up our night!
First trip to Arethusa after wanting to go for a while. Was certainly not disappointed........great apps and meals. The flavors of everything were incredible. If you’re a foodie this is a must....
The night was perfect. Upon booking the reservation I stated that it was my fiancés birthday. To my surprise, they went out of their way to give him a birthday card as we were seated. My heart was so filled that they made my fiancés night a little more special for him. The entire staff was welcoming and the atmosphere charming. The waitress recommended a couple dinner options for us, which I love because they know best! Both our meals were amazing to the last drop. The flavors of the ingredients blended so well with each other. They have out done themselves. Thank you chefs and staff for the best birthday dinner. We will be back.
As the saying goes.... you get what you pay for. Be prepared to be lavished in impeccable service and fine dishes that will tantalize your palete.
Robert took great care of us and the food was exceptional. Well exceeded our expectations.
Our dinner here was amazing. From the moment we arrived, the hostess Ayla made us feel as if she were truly happy tonsee us. More than welcome. Our waitress Susan was so friendly and seemed to anticipate our needs at the exact moment we had them. The entire staff was perfectly professional yet personable. Eating the cheeses was an wonderful experience all on it's own. Everything from the fresh bread and arethusa butter to the lime dessert was spot on and each bite blew me away. I found myself actually closing my eyes w every bite to focus on the flavors and textures (the scallops almost brought a tear to my eyes). Even the beer selection was impressive. I cant wait to go back
Everything was wonderful! Service was perfect! The presentation was superb! Food delicious and uniquely prepared! Loved it!
Arethusa al Tavolo blows our minds every chance we have to visit. Start to finish, the level of comfort and service, coupled with the incredibly well thought out menu and attention to detail is why this is our all time favorite restaurant.
Food is consistently top quality and served very creatively. Their eggs Benedict is superb with the best hollandaise sauce I've ever had.
Will go back and try dinner next time.
Do Not order the short ribs. They are really terrible. Otherwise everything was perfect. Such a great restaurant. We love it.
I defy anybody to find a flaw with this restaurant. From the moment you step in the door you are made to feel special. Every employee has the same level of professionalism and courtesy. The food is phenomenal - but the way it is served and the way the wait staff and management present the entire experience is why this place is head and shoulders above anywhere else within 50 miles.
first time at arethusa during a long weekend visit and well worth the visit. everything was delicious and visually stunning. there were so many other things I need to try, so we will have to make the visit up there again!!!
Superb! Such a fabulous place - food, service and ambience
New Year’s Eve with my wife and 2 sons- 17 and 14 years old. The food was exceptional and the maitre d and wait staff went out of their way to ensure my sons had a great experience. We all tried foods outside our comfort zone such as octopus and chicken liver dumplings and we lived every bite. This is our 3rd time dining at the restaurant but 1st with our children. It’s a great experience and I look forward to our next visit.
Food exceptional. Service flawless. A great dining experience every time.
Always an amazing experience. Went for brunch and it did not disappoint. Make sure to try the lobster and avocado salad!
Thank you for a lovely evening. Just as we had hoped. See you New Year’s Eve.
Never disappoints, always delivers consistently good food. Desserts were the highlight, James Arena is the best pastry chef in Connecticut, hands down!
You need to eat here at least once. Awesome experience
This restaurant definately deserves it's place as one of the top restaurants in CT. Every dish was creative and beautfully prepared. The service was excellent and the manager was always around ensuring a fabulous dining experience. I had the shrimp fritters that were served with vegetables and a vinegarry sauce reminiscent of Indian chat. My wife had the shaved brussel sprouts with prosciutto both were excellent. She had the snapper I had lamb three ways- both were terrific. Dessert was the cranberry tart.
Best in CT, excellent as always! Cheeses so interesting, entree preparation perfect and dessert so playful.
Perfection as always!
Always a treat, always top notch in every way.
We went to Arethusa al Tavolo for the first time to celebrate our anniversary and it was far beyond our expectations. The atmosphere, service and most important, the food was more than five star. We certainly look forward to our next experience.
We loved it. Best food in the state
Everything was top shelf perfect. My son gave us a gift certificate and talks very highly about Arethusa. We had an amazing experience and can’t wait to go back!!!
My husband and I celebrated his birthday with a dinner at Arethusa al Tavolo. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish.
This was our second time dining at Arethusa al Tavolo. The first time was for my birthday, and the second time was for my husband's birthday. Both times were incredible! The service is wonderful. Our server both times was very knowledgeable about the menu. The food is excellent - on par with any Michelin starred restaurant we've eaten at, but is so approachable and perfectly presented. Last time we went, we had a bigger party so we were able to try more of the appetizers (foie gras dumplings - delicious!). This time, the showstopper was the red snapper dish. The oysters were amazing, served with a wonderful mignonette that balanced the crème fraiche and caviar perfectly. We are definitely coming back and with a bigger party so we can order more food to share!
Always wonderful never disappoints. Great service and superb food.
We always enjoy Arethusa, it’s our favorite restaurant! The oyster preparation was wonderful as was the baked ditalini with short ribs.
