Looking for a great restaurant in Old Lyme, CT area

We are planning to take my folks out for their 35th anniversary. We are looking for a place to eat outside if the Old Lyme area. We've done the restaurants in Old Lyme and are now looking for something new. Any ideas?

  1. You could try some thing in the westbrook area, just down rt 95 from old lyme. There are a coulpe of nice places there.

      Take a look at this site, it might help you with some choices. Hope it works out . Post a reply after you trip.

      1. How about Bistro by Benigno in East Haddam? They do have outdoor dining. Or Sage in Chester?

        1. A wonderful meal and service can be had at Restaurant du Village in Chester. its always great.
          If you like French food you can't go wrong there.

          1. re: chefstu

            I went there once and was extremely unimpressed with both the food and the service, which was a bit of a shock considering the great press this restaurant gets. An off night, perhaps?

            I had a much better dinner at the River Tavern up the street. A beautiful room, great food, great service.
