My daughter and I had lunch at On 20 to celebrate a birthday. From the very beginning, everything was wonderful. Michael, the manager, welcomed us warmly and seated us at a table by the windows. We had a wonderful view of the river and fall foliage. Michael was very gracious throughout our lunch and came back often to chat briefly.... More

The three of us had an exceptional dinner here that was enhanced by Michael McGarity, the manager, and Deidre and AJ our servers. We were seated facing a spectacular view of Hartford and the river. The White Gazpacho was rich yet light; the green bean salad was crisp and tasty; the red snapper sauteed and moist and an exceptional surf... More

This hidden gem is one of the classiest restaurants in Hartford! High atop the Harford Steam Boiler building on the 20th floor, the restaurant offers a panoramic view of the river and beyond. The food is delicious (I have never had a bad meal!!) and the wait staff attentive without being intrusive. They periodically offer special dinner deals where you... More

We were at On20 to celebrate a birthday with family. Not the first time we’ve been there. The 20 means that it is on the 20th floor of the Hartford Steam Boiler Office Building which makes it a business lunch haven. Sometimes in the evenings they have entertainment – although not this time. The tables are far enough apart to... More

This is another best kept secret in Connecticut, especially with the extensive skyline view. The menu is a bit pricy, but unique. I think this is an ideal place to celebrate a very special romantic occasion. I was impressed with the servers, as they all seem to attend any and all tables.

The views are magnificent and the dining room itself has million dollar art and tables set so far apart as to be able to actually... More

Bartender apparently has forgotten how many people and for how long she has been saying its her first week. Great view, good food, marginal service

I had dined at On20 three times prior to this and had enjoyed a wonderful experience. This time was different. Perhaps because it was Restaurant Week in Hartford and the price was $30.14 for a three-course meal, the service and the quality of the food was not exceptional. Concerning the service, we ran out of butter for the bread and... More

My wife and I went to celebrate several significant events and heard ON20 was considered one of the Top Resturants, so off we went. We were not disappointed! We were at a table with a great view from the hills of Glastonbury, across the Connecticut River, to Wethersfield and back to the Trinity College chapels that was breath taking. We... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to ON20. The last night of our CT family vacation, and in easy walking distance from our hotel, we simply hoped for a pleasant upscale dining experience - we were not disappointed...indeed it exceeded not only all out expectations but probably all our experiences prior to today!!! Superb attentive service, care, dedication and thoroughness. Everyone was... More
