My husband and I ate at the Octagon on 10/18/14. It was a Saturday night but the place was not crowded. My husband had the NY Strip steak and lobster tails. The steak was prepared exactly the way he ordered it and he said both were very good. I had the salmon which was fresh and also prepared as ordered.... More

I stayed at the Mystic Marriott and ate in Octagon for two dinners. Both nights the food and service were excellent. The olive tapenade is quite special, especially with the fresh rustic bread (I mixed with butter, but it's also great by itself.) Stonington scallops are a signature dish - excellent with grilled asparagus. The second night I had the... More

A restaurant that is taking good care to be one of the best in CT The wine list should have exactly what you would like to drink. Their menu is a little different but delicious. It is not an unexpensive restaurant but it worths the price.

It's not often you find a four diamond rated restaurant in a hotel, but Octagon is just that. Was able to order off the regular menu in the adjoining bar area which is livelier than the main dining room. Had the local Stonington scallops that were delicious. Waitress was very pleasant and provided wine suggestions.

The food and service was fantastic. Whether you dine in at the restaurant or justget a quick bite at the lounge area, you will not be disappointed. Also bartenders Karen and Roger were the greatest! They kept the conversation and drinks flowing!

My wife and I shared an entrée and two sides. It was ala carte, so the price is higher than some places. We had the 12 ounce rib eye cooked medium, au gratin potatoes, and grilled asparagus. Everything was just excellent. We had dessert (peaches and crème cake) which was very delicious. The service was outstanding as well. This was... More
