Went to this popular new place located at Oxford Airport in Oxford, Conn. Appropiately the restaurant is the size of a hangar and as noisy as a busy runway (at least on a Saturday night). No reservations for parties smaller than 6, so we waited an hour for a table after being told the wait would be 40 minutes. The young woman at the front desk laughed in a very silly way at everything you said, whether it was "How are you tonight?" or "We've been waiting for our table for nearly an hour." The bar was crowded with people waiting for their names to be called, though you can eat there, too,if you're lucky enought to snag a few stools together. As for the food and service, both quite good. The young waitstaff were friendly and hustled impressively. The menu doesn't range too far afield: salmon, ribeye, chicken, tuna, etc., four pasta dishes four sandwich-type things. Our table had fried calamari, a pasta and sausage appetizer (delicious), salad and diced tuna, then fettucine alfedo,tuna (very rare), fettucine alfredo, a hamburger and shrimp. No complaints, except, again, the noise level. We were very nearly yelling to be heard at times. I'm not in a hurry to return except maybe to the extensive outdoor deck, which could be fun if planes are taking off and landing.
