“Poor service, mediocre food, expensive”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

Perhaps they were unexpectedly busy BUT we waited an hour and 15 minutes for our entres. Folks at the neighboring table left after 1 1/2 hours without being served. The food was poor by comparison with other restaurants in this town. The salads were satisfactory. One was simply a pile of arugula and litle else -- not what was advertised. The entres were mediocre, at best. The speciality tuna was not completely cooked; other items on the plate were bland. When the star of the meal is pureed parsnips, you know something is wrong with the cooking. The other entre, a vegetarian dish, was mediocre, heavy on garlic and quite a small portion. By contrast, the bill was very large -- not unusual in this town -- but outsized by comparison with the quality of the food. Don't know who has been writing the other review of this restuarant. We would recommend several other restaurants instead of this one. We won't return to TRE.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

We came intending to love this restaurant. I'd read the Tripadvisor reviews. Unfortunately, our experience was not good. OK, so it was Saturday night, and the place was busy. But still....our appetizers arrived relatively quickly. It took over an hour before our entrees showed up. Mine was cold and the tuna, which I'd requested medium well, was rare. My husband's entree had so much garlic in it he could hardly taste anything else.
A good note: our waiter was very personable andwas obviously doing his best. A not-so-good note: the hostess kept going outside to smoke - and bringing the smell of smoke back into the restaurant.
And all of this at Ridgefield prices - which are never in the moderate range.
In sum: a disappointment, and a real shame because we really DID go expecting to like TRE.

“Love this restaurant”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

The chef at TRE is a very talented guy.
The small plates are wonderful; I think, since we've eaten here at least 6 times, we've tried them all.
We have not had one complaint about the food and we're real sticklers.
Give TRE a go. You will not be disappointed.

“Great addition to Ridgefield dining options”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Very nice, impressive dinner experience at this restaurant that is now about a year old.

There are two sections to the restaurant, a bar area with a banquette and some tables nearby, and a separate tables only restaurant section. We arrived relatively late in the evening and the restaurant was pretty empty, so we sat at a table in the bar area. Very nicely decorated, very comfortable chairs, and service was very friendly and accommodating without being intrusive.

But the food - that's the best part. We loved the warm bread to start, with tasty garlic, oil & balsamic dip. Mr. started with warm polenta with a sauce of mushroom, onion, tomato. We each had a salad, mine was arugula and pear, he had a different salad, both had nice dressings and flavor combinations. He had striped bass with potatoes and a vegetable - I'm not too clear on what he ate because I was so thrilled with my carefully seasoned salmon with delicious brown rice with haricot verts and a few other goodies and a great sauce. Water refills were prompt, wines by the glass were fine.

I really liked the other touches - real hefty silverware, big napkins, nice lighting: definitely not just whatever was cheapest at the restaurant supply store.

This is a place I happily recommend. You may have to search a bit to find it - it's around the corner, in the space that Books on the Common once inhabited.
