Located just outside Mystic, CT, Octagon prides itself on offering the finest steaks and freshest seafood everyday. Our menu changes seasonally and celebrates local ingredients harvested right here in our beautiful state of Connecticut. To our pleasure, our guests are travelers from around the globe and neighborhood locals. From our open grill and wine cellar to our one of a kind artwork and glass sculptures, we truly believe dining should be an experience, not just a meal.

Quality hotel restaurant

We ate here for breakfast and dinner. We found breakfast very reasonable as the two kids in our party of five ate free. We had eaten there the previous night and found there to be a good variety to suit all our needs - vegetarians and picky kids. We found the quality of the food good and cost was... read more

This restaurant was good for breakfast with gluten free french toast and large portions. However for dinner, it was only ok, nothing special and very overpriced. There weren't enough gluten free options but at least there was gluten free bread. The gluten free dessert was inedible.

Meal was mediocre and definitely overpriced. Wait staff rude and not appropriate for this caliber restaurant.

We spend a lot of time in the area in the summer, make at least one dinner here a season. Octagon is a well appointed resturant away from town a short distance. We were promptly greeted and seated. Our server took drink orders. After what seemed like a long time she returned to tell us they did not have the... More

Stayed at the Marriott, and found this excellent restaurant right on the property. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. I found no fault. Definitely not for the budget conscious, but it's worth it. And the portions are substantial, not typical of some finer eating establishments.

Food is excellent. I loved gazpacho: Very well balanced spiciness and sweetness (I asked how it's made and there is no sugar added:They source veggy locally & then grill them). For those who watch calories I'd definitely recommend this dish as its law calories, very satisfying and comes in controlled portion :) My friends had steak and said it was... More

We were staying at the hotel and we went down here to have our anniversary dinner. The food was amazing-the staff was very nice, helpful & waited on us hand & foot. A little pricey but worth it.

We were looking for oysters and they wern't on the menu but the got them for us and boy were they good, Caesar with salmon and the Salmon sand was great, ice tea was fresh but weak for me! Will make it a point to stop there again.
