"We booked Thanksgiving dinner here based on the reviews. They must be written by staff and family.
We arrived at 4:50 for our 5:00 pm reservation. We were finally seated at 5:45. It was clear that they were in the holiday greed mode and severly overbooked. What made it worse is that there is no place to wait other than standing in the doorway or hovering over other diners. One of our party has difficulty standing for long periods of time. We asked one of the staff to get a chair but were totally ignored. We would have left but the reviews of the food were very good and things coming out of the kitchen looked promising.
After we were finally seated, we were greeted promptly, asked for a drink order which was also delivered promptly and the our waiter disappeared. After 20 more minutes we finally asked if there was anyone to take our order. Finally our waiter appeared again, took our order, brought the starters in a reasonable period of time and then we waited again. Three of us ordered the lamb shank. When the food finally arrived, the lamb shanks were all "charred" to inedibility. My wifes mushroom risotto was bland and lacked flavor.
So much for the ratings for food.
It is clear that providing a quality experience consistently is not something these folks understand so perhaps they are capable of delivering an experince as in their reviews but there were plenty of folks from the night we were there that will not return, us included."

"Although we had reservations, people who showed up with out reservations were seated first. We had reservations for 5:30 PM but were seated at 6:35PM. The food was plentiful last year. This year, I left hungry. I ordered the turkey meal which was more like shredded pieces. I will not be back for Thanksgiving next year. The waiter seemed more interested in the tip being left. I had to ask for water and for bread. A real bad, hungry experience!!!"

"This restaurant was packed at the entrance, and there were a good 5-10 tables of people waiting to be seated. All had reservations. All had been waiting for at least 30 minutes and many for as much as 60 minutes. The restaurant was offering no information to everyone waiting and was acting like people were being rude for asking them when they might sit for their reservation. They offered nothing in return to customers waiting for more than 60 minutes for a table, and when we checked in initially we were told "we don't know when we'll be able to seat you".
In the words of a famous Seinfeld episode: "taking the reservation is the easy part. keeping the reservation is the hard part."
After 60 minutes waiting and seeing that there were still several tables of people left to be seated, we gave up and went somewhere else. The hostess was rude, and there was no sign of a manager. Someone should have at least bought us a drink or something while we waited.
Don't bother with this place."

"We both enjoyed seafood dishes which were excellent. The pear and walnut salad was delicious. Service was excellent. The red wine could have been a bit cooler. We did have to ask for bread and it was delivered promptly. The view is beautiful. One of the best in Fairfield County. Pricing is moderate and well worth it."

"With a lovely setting and excellent service, this is a restaurant that surprises. Maybe you weren't expecting the pleasant ambiance and very good food--if you went just for the view. My family had a great time, stayed for a very long dinner and the staff was patient and attentive. Food perfect for people aged 5 to 55."

"When we arrived at harbor lights we were told we had no reservation. The wait for a table would have been over an hour. I don't know if Open Table or harbor lights is to blame, but I will never use Open Table again."

"Be sure to book your table for the sunset near windows (there are plentiful) and stay with the french waiter which is one of few helpful and smiling staff ;( Food is fair but not really special and it's a little bit pricy."

"Nice little restaurant by a marina and overlooking Norwalk bay. The day we dine there was beautiful, they have large paneled doors that open, the air was cool and comfortable.
The food was good, a little salty, for my taste but not to overpowering to send back, we had the filet of sole, one thing, you have to ask for bread. Very romantic, I would go back.
A little pricey but worth it.
