Took out of town friends up to Kent Falls and decided to dine at a Kent restaurant, Giffords. I had read an article about this in my son's Canterbury Alumni magazine and noticed it was co-owned by a student in his class. It did not disappoint. Everyone was very pleased with their entree's, beautifully presented and really good. Restaurant was beautiful. All in all a great meal. Wish we lived a bit closer!

Was surprised to see the restaurant had changed ownership because I had not visited the area since it was sold a year or so ago. Food and drinks were really good and waitstaff Rosemary just could not have been more pleasant and welcoming. Inside and outside seating is available. Pleasant views on the outside and inside is just lovely. Full bar as well. Restaurant was not crowded because it was the first Saturday of the season it was open so it was just extremely pleasant to sit in peace and quiet and enjoy the moment. Kent, Ct. is an especially nice quaint little town with beautiful scenery and nice little shops. Nice hiking area as well. This restaurant is surely worth a visit.

gorgeous menus, welcome change from the ubiquitous Italian restaurants in the area. menu read wonderfully; food, however, was just ok. my duck breast was perfectly cooked, husband's swordfish as well, but the calamari, salmon over pho, and hanger steak were ordinary. not inexpensive; new decor is definitely fun. will probably go again, but with lower expectations. dessert was WAY too fabulous.....

We decided to try Giffords for the first time to celebrate my birthday. We were not disappointed. We made a reservation for a Friday night at 6:30. The restaurant filled shortly after so this was a good thing .i had the seared tuna and my husband had the hanger steak. Both meals were exceptionally good. Good quality food and ample portions. Nice ambiance . Kent is a wonderful town to take a stroll after dinner. A wonderful experience that I highly recommend.
