My wife and I went to Martel Bistro & Bar in Fairfield CT for dinner. At first glance, the dining area is extremely small with the tables right next to each other. You can basically hear the conversation of the patrons sitting next to you. Definitely not a restaurant to bring children. Upon arrival we were given a table promptly. We ordered the oysters and tuna baget for appetizers. The oysters were good, however the tuna baget was really salty. For dinner we had the braised short ribs and sear scallops with farro. The short ribs were good. The meat was falling of the bone and vegetables were tender. The scallops were cooked perfectly, however that dish lacked flavor. Overall, we rate this restaurant at best average and will not be going back.
