Wine was great, the atmosphere was charming, the food was tasty, and the staff were friendly. This is definitely an old school restaurant, not hip in the least, but delightful all the same. I'd come back a thousand times if I lived closer.

Nice spot to have a good meal. This place has a lot of history. Great food too. I had the muscles and my wife had the duck.

It's a little worn around the edges but it has a lodge/club-like atmosphere. The variety on the menu is amazing. I like dinner better than lunch here, but I didn't have a bad meal and we ate here three times over the long weekend. The...More

My favorite place in all of Litchfield County, and there is some pretty stiff competition. The Fife offers great food, an enormous wine selection, friendly service and lively entertainment on many nights. Disappointing only on Tuesdays (it's closed).

Stopped here for a lunch break on a foliage drive. The place was humming with others doing the same, but we were seated right away and the service was swift and efficient. It was impossible not to notice the hustle of the hard-working wait staff....More

Classic food is great but its very predictable of a menu and nothing that really stood out. They had a piano which was neat but the atmosphere in general could use a makeover. Food was fresh and cooked well but nothing extraordinary.
