Foursquare Tips

  • I'm sure the menu will change seasonally but the Hen Ragu, Octopus, Fluke, And lamb duo were absolutely amazing. I can't have a bad dish here. Avi the chef/owner is the real deal.
  • Some of the best staff in the city! Let Avi and Meera treat you right!
  • Ask Gil at the bar to pair wines with the meal and don't miss the blood orange & fennel salad and the braised lamb
  • Roia's rating should be an 8+ at the least. Don't miss happy hour when you can get killer bowl of pasta for $10 and a wine flight for another $10.
  • The setting is historic but the food is modern, delicious and beautifully presented. Cocktails are well crafted. Servers are professional, thoughtful and unobtrusive. My fave New Haven restaurant.
  • Try the beets with gorgonzola appetizer and the Duo Poussin duck confit.
  • Dinner was really great. Delicious! They need to train their wait staff much better.
  • American food is good
  • Let the bartender match wines and order the Duck, it's superb!
  • went here for restaurant week. the prix fixe menu was delicious but the service was AWFUL. we didn't complain but the table next to us waited an hour before they got their food.
  • The bartender seemed either overworked or grossly incompetent and lacked any sort of personality to make up for the poor service. Food took forever and was mediocre at best. The menu is very limited.
  • Bring a large group and order everything on the menu. Ask for Nicole.
  • Tasting menu tonight was minimal and left us hungry. Too much time between courses. The paired wines shined.
