Anniversary- elegant change of pace

Sometimes you need to take it up a notch. As a West Hartfordite who regularly frequents great places like Grants, Bartaco, and Max's Oyster House, ON20 put us by a window on the 20th floor with a stunning view of the Connecticut River.

Dinner was fabulous! The dining room is spacious with a wall of windows and awesome views of Hartford. The Chef's Tasting Menu was excellent. The dishes were well prepared with fresh ingredients. Each course complemented the next. Presentations were artfully done. Service was attentive, friendly and relaxed- allowing ample time between courses. Portions were adequate to satisfy the taste buds.... More

I live 2 and a half hours away from this restaurant. My fiancee and I have agreed to visit ON20 at least once a month. Every little detail about this restaurant is amazing. EXCELLENT views of Hartford, and incredibly delicious food at affordable prices. It's very romantic and very fancy but you won't feel out of place is you happen... More

My wife and I were here several months back, and enjoyed both the service and food. We both had the sole, which was excellent, and our waitress was friendly and attentive. We recently returned as a family of six celebrating a birthday, and did not have anywhere near the same experience. The flank steak was tough, and the service was... More

We recently had my wife's birthday dinner at ON20. It was simply fabulous. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. We had a leisurely cocktail while perusing the menu as well as some wonderful Prosecco. We opted for Chef Lizotte's "tasting" menu. We started with a Cod brandade beignet with red onion jam. It was light and very tasty. A... More

It's rare to find a place in a city that is overly accommodating AND has exceptional food and service. ON20 allowed us to come in later than the usual last reservation so that we could go here for a romantic dinner on my boyfriend's birthday (on a Wednesday). There is garaged parking which they validate, they knew who we were... More

Everything about On 20 is fabulous. The food, the wine selections, the service and especially the view. You can see the Connecticut River for miles! As well as the City of Hartford. We have gone to On 20 for a romantic Valentines Day dinner and also with a group of friends for a special occasion. We have never been disappointed.... More

When we want to show off the Hartford skyline and fantastic food, we take our guests to On20. The staff is attentive without being overbearing. They are super careful regarding food allergies and every course is a delight. Expensive? Yes, but worth it!

I have always wanted to go to this restaurant but initially they were only opened on Thursday and Friday. When they opened up for the weekend we booked for my birthday. When we arrived the restaurant was fairly empty. The restaurant is on the top floor and the views are beautiful at night. We arrived about half hour before our... More
