Need A Restaurant in Milford for Tomorrow Night! PLEASE HELP.
Please Help! I don't know any good places to have a business dinner. Please suggest a few.
Thanks so much. Temilove
Bistro Basque, Johnny Ray's, or my personal favorite, Ola's (technically, I think they're in Orange, but it's only a 5-10 minute ride up the Post Rd).
Personally, I don't care for the food OR the prices at the Bridge House.
I've heard good things about Assagio's at the Dock Shopping Center right over the bridge in Stratford, but I have not been there myself yet.

I would recommend Gusto, a fantastic little place in Milford. Here's a review I wrote last year:
Gusto restaurant, Milford, CT, Excellent!
Had occasion to be in Milford on business this week and visited Gusto on route 1 for lunch with several business colleagues. The place was very clean and the staff extremely friendly. Bread and roasted garlic were brought to the table promptly and refilled upon request which was often.
We had a charming waitress from Liverpool who really knew both the menu and the wine list. We started with a roasted cauliflower soup that was superb, a bit smoky (bacon?) with great texture and terrific flavor. Two of my associates had a special, blackened tilapia with chutney which was really well thought out and delicious. I had Chicken Francese which was perfectly cooked with a lemony sauce but the hit for me was the side of pasta with a fresh tomato sauce that had large pieces of torn basil in it. Terrific!
Went to Bistro Basque tonight for the first time...been meaning to for a long time after reading so many positive reviews here. Have to say I was very disappointed in the food. Mediocre at best. Any of the Barcelona's are way way better. Ibiza is miles above. I would put it below La Paella in Norwalk.
We shared a bunch of tapas. Sat out on the patio. Service was good, no issues there. Just thought the food was meh...we had codfish croquettas, white beans with clams, cauliflower cazuela, pork lomo, black rice w/ squid and stuffed piquillo peppers...overcooked rice in the paella, nothing else did anything for me. Saw a couple of entrees at the table next to us, paella looked okay, the other one looked really unappetizing. Oh well...had high hopes after all the great reviews.
Try Conte's for good Italian food. I have spend a lot of time in Italy and find his food is very authentic. The decor of the restaurant even looks like the older neighborhood places in the small towns surrounding Rome. This trip I had the broccoli rabe with sausage and penne pasta. All the pasta is made fresh on premises and is cooked perfectly. Also try the bruschetta with tomato and white Italian beans, Delicious. My only disappointment was the wine list. Need some good Italian reds that will compliment the great food. Garlic knots are great. Price reasonably and worth a try

I am NOT a fan of any restaurant that when you walk in you feel like you are bothering them. I've read a lot of that on Chowhound and it seems to be mostly the Italian restaurants (and pizza parlors specifically), for some reson. What's up with that ? If you want my business, can't you just pretend that you're happy to see me and I'm not bothering you? (ok - now I feel better to get that out) ;)
