R&R may be Bridgeport’s best kept secret. I have lived in Fairfield County for over 30 years and had never heard of this place. Just stumbled in. What a wonderful surprise: tasty food and pleasant service. A real find.

Today was a pleasant lunch. R&R is well worth a return visit – and we’ll be back soon for an extended dinner visit.

The stuffy Westport crowd may not travel East for restaurants very often, but this is an option they should not miss. Try it; you’ll love it.

Gaetano's Deli

Italian Style Deli/Hot Foods for Lunch.

Reviewed By Jake F - London, United Kingdom

This place is a brilliant Italian style deli; the sandwiches are tremendous and the guys who work there are nice. Make sure you get a little oil and vinegar on your sandwich; it really makes a difference. In addition, the canoli there are real fresh and very tasty.

Red Lotus

Boutique Asian cuisine with very selective dishes from around the world. Full line of Certified Organic Spirits, Wines, and Sakes. Gluten Free and Organic Food Specials.

Reviewed By teena1014 - Ringoes, New Jersey

Had dinner last night and it was okay, but not great. First, the waiter was brand new, it was his first night. He did fine... I’m sure he’ll be great in a few weeks. I ordered a grapefruit martini, one of the House specials. My husband ordered a regular martini on the rocks. Both seemed weak and my husbands arrived straight. We shared a tuna avocado salad and dumpling appetizer, both were very good. We both ordered the same entree, tenderloin and scallops. It was good, but not great. Maybe it was just an off night, I’d try again.

The Cheesecake Factory

The Cheesecake Factory offers something for everyone featuring a wide variety of over 200 menu items prepared fresh to order each day, plus over 30 legendary varieties of the Finest Cheesecake.

Reviewed By Gloria H - Fairfield, Connecticut

We had a very enjoyable lunch. They offer a large menu- appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, soups, entrees, pasta dishes, drinks, and dessert. I ordered from the Skinylicious menu-veggie burger with a side salad. My husband had the personal pizza with Caesar salad. The portions were very generous as well as fresh and tasty. For dessert we shared a slice of the Hershey Chocolate cheesecake. It was very rich and flavorful. In addition we had very good service.

Barcelona

Located in the 1940's Hi Ho Motel, Barcelona Fairfield is a funky throwback in the hills of Easton, just off the Merritt Parkway. The dining room has the feel of Fairfield County circa 1970, with private booths, vibrant wallpaper, and photographs of family and friends. The interior's main focus is the welcoming bar and the beautiful 85-seat patio overlooking the trees and the parkway is the focus in warm weather. Fairfield features an intimate private dining room and a family-friendly vibe during the week.

Reviewed By TravelersTwoPeople - Weston, Connecticut

Last summer we ate out on the patio and had a marvelous first visit. Tapas interesting. Sangria great. This time we weren't as happy. Sat inside (it IS winter) but found that having two servers was confusing. We received two on one tapas when we had ordered one. We were asked if we wanted our bill when we hadn't received all our food order. All in all we didn't feel like we need to go back.

Stopped in for lunch specials, pot roast, cod sandwich, meat loaf and lemon chicken orzo soup were terrific. I asked to substitute spinach for potatoes and it was no problem at all. I heard the mashed were very good but my spinach was tasty!

Franco Gianni's Pizza

Reviewed By Kristen K - Trumbull, Connecticut

We have been coming here for years! The food is authentic Italian food. The prices are reasonable and like the other reviewers have already stated it is GOOD. Specifically the pasta fagioli, the grinders, and pretty much everything else. There are tables for dining, but their to go is very popular too. $10.00 for a huge order of pasta fagioli including a salad......very reasonable and home made...Just remember they don't open until 3 on Sundays!!

Prime One Eleven

Reviewed By ARJACT - Connecticut

There were four of us for lunch. Two adults and two kids. We had burgers, steaks, some soft drinks and beer. All of the food choices were fine. Portions are large. Prices are fair for most of the entrees. There is a nice pub atmosphere that is comfortable and inviting. Our waitress was fine. We were not rushed even though we had kids with us. The food was slow coming out. I thought that was strange since there were no more than 15 people sitting in the dining area. There were lots of people at the bar but, no one seemed to be eating. All together a good experience. We will be back.
