The West Street Grill is a classic New England restaurant in an historic New England town. It is a great place to have an excellent lunch or dinner after touring the local homes from the 1800's. For our birthday celebration, we shared a crab and avocado salad, plank cooked Irish salmon and local farm pasta. If possible, get one of... More

Stopped in for lunch on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We were greeted warmly at the door. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Hard to choose from so many great options on the menu. We started with the shaved squash and burrata salad, which was outstanding. We all enjoyed our main courses, which included the grilled chicken salad, the rigatoni... More

Everyone had said this was a top dining spot in Litchfield but we were disappointed from the start. I had left a message to try to get reservations for a Sunday evening but never received a return call. Then we drove up a few minutes before they opened and called again and they took our information. Upon arriving they seated... More

I have been frequenting this wonderful establishment for some years now, and every time, whether for lunch or dinner, the food is outstanding, the selection wonderful and the service warm and welcoming. I just recently had a wonderful appetizer of locally sourced (New England) oysters followed by a delectable main course lunch of duck confit. The West Street Grill is... More

All aspects of this restaurant were superb. The atmosphere was sublime and the food was cooked to perfection. The "smoked salmon platter" in particular was wonderful, very tender, and flavorful.

I've been to this restaurant on other occasions and have never been disappointed! My husband and I always had a great meal here! I'm a big Sunday Brunch fan, and without a doubt, West Street Grill serves the best brunch in Litchfield county. I highly recommend their Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict... the best I ever had!

Our party of 4 adults went to the West Village Grill on Sunday around 1 30 pm for lunch.
