First time visitor with friends for drinks and snacks. From the moment we sat down until we walked out of the door, we were catered to by our excellent server and staff. Our server was very knowledgeable and gave spot-on recommendations for everything from wine to after-dinner drinks. Fantastic. The food. Where do i start? Everything was wonderful. Our party...

Spotted Horse has a large menu for lunch and dinner. It is located downtown, across from the old Y. The food is mainly American, well prepared and not pretentious. There is also a lively bar scene. Seating is separate from the bar, so you can hear each other speak without shouting. Dessert choices are excellent, so save room. Friendly, efficient... More

Went to TPHT with wife and several friends. It was refreshing that they seated us even though two of the five guests were still a few minutes away. We didn't take advantage of it, and they didn't force us to wait for the last person to arrive like some places do. We sat in a corner booth in the bar;... More

The Spotted Horse is a no fuss, no surprises but consistently good dining spot in downtown Westport. Good cocktails are always the best way to start a meal and The Spotted Horse never disappoints. Service was excellent and dinner was simple but tasty. Broad menu but my comments are limited as the meal was a salad and a starter( the... More

I frequent this restaurant on a regular basis, about once every other month for the past few years. I met a friend there for drinks around 4:30 yesterday. I walked in to find my friend at a table due to the bar being full, however 3 of those seats were taken by children. And when I say children, they appeared... More

I will admit, the decor looks good, it's busy, it looks welcoming...but looks can be deceiving. The food is nothing to write home about, but the attitude and slow service defined my visits. I sat at the bar, which I usually find gets you quicker service as there is/should be a bartender there at all times. Nay Nay, at this... More

Spotted Horse is a great place if you are looking for comfort food, or salads. Its very conveniently located in the downtown area near all of the shopping. The staff is always very friendly. Try the Arthur Avenue spring rolls, lobster rolls, or the truffle burger, a few of my favorites. There is also a vary spacious bar area, so... More
