My son took me to On20 for a recent birthday, and it was mostly a delightful experience. I say "mostly" because there were a few notes that were a bit off. For example, the solicitous waiter erred on the side of unctuous. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, although when my duckling entree first was set down, it was... More

I've eaten at ON20 twice, and it was sheer heaven! The food is delicious, and exquisite in its presentation and creativity -- each dish is a visual work of art. The service is beyond fabulous -- gracious, attentive, and knowledgeable without being overbearing or pretentious. The table settings and dinnerware are a feast for your eyes -- I'm in awe... More

Recently visited On20 for the first after hearing excellent reviews and it did not disappoint. It is located on the 20th floor and the only thing better then the warm abs friendly staff is the food. Small menu but excellent choices with perfect sized portions and fresh ingredients. I had an excellent monk fish and everyone's meals were equally delicious.... More

Delicious food, lovely view, attentive service, more modern feel now. The sea bass, if available, is especially wonderful.

OK, ON20 is not the first place you might think of for happy hour and if it's brewskis and wings you want, go elsewhere. On the other hand my wife and I went last Friday evening and had a wonderful time. We sat right at the window with a spectacular view. We ordered almost everything on the happy hour menu... More

Every aspect of On20 is wonderful. The décor includes wonderful paintings from the old Steam Boiler collection, the view from the window is incomparable, the food is excellent, and the staff are fabulous. Tables are far apart, so the atmosphere is quiet and serene -- perfect for conversation. When I wanted to choose a wine, the Maitre was able to... More

The service was extraordinary. The food was spectacular and the views from the 20th floor as the sun was setting was lovely as the clouds turned from blue to pink then the lights of the city came on and twinkled for the rest of the evening. We had what had to be the best table in the house, a bay... More

What an awesome experience. We both ordered the "Chef's Special Tasting Menu" ($75.00 per person) which is this 8 or 9 course extravaganza with taste and food variety that will satisfy even the most discerning of diners. Elegantly prepared by Head Chef, Jeffrey Lizotte, who is one of the up and coming chefs in New England, each course was meticulously... More

Under former chef Noel Jones, on20 was probably the best restaurant between New York and Boston, and better than many we've been to in either of those cities. We reviewed the restaurant previously in January 2012 (5*) and indicated it was worthy of a Michelin star. Sadly, that's no longer the case. We were disappointed by almost every dish on... More

I have no idea how people give this restaurant high reviews. All four of us did not have one dish we enjoyed. I recently had an amazing dining experience at Ai Fiore in NYC, and I'm thinking this is the best Hartford can do. I would not go back there if you paid me.
