The food is creative, eclectic and right up any "foodie's" ally! Interesting combinations and fresh local ingredients will delight hit palate. Best service in Hartford- true fine dining. The atmosphere is sophisticated, and has an exclusive feel with an unbeatable view of the CT river. The wine list offers a great selection to fit any budget. Go here!

My date and I had dinner at ON20 on Oct 15th for Hartford restaurant week. They have a limited menu for restaurant week but the courses were well prepared and the service was very attentive. I'm looking forward to returning for the full menu soon.

I had a very nice dinner recently an ON20. I tried their tasting menu with the offered wine pairing and each dish was enjoyable, although it did feel like it was lacking a real "wow" course. Particularly nice dishes, however, were the steak tartare, which had wonderful citrus flavors, and the sea scallop, which was excellently cooked. The staff was... More

This is a very special place indeed. On20 derives its name because the restaurant is on the 20th floor with a magnificent view of the Hartford Skyline and surrounding towns. But that is only the ambiance. The dining experience was phenomenal - the menu creative, exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented.

We went there for our anniversary. I would say that this is a “special occasion” restaurant. It is expensive for Hartford, but not for what you get. In terms of the service, food, ambience, it’s actually very reasonably priced. We had 2 appetizers, 2 entrees (salmon and scallops), 1 desert and a bottle of wine – the bill, with included... More

Had a great birthday dinner! Everything went perfectly- we were suggested a great bottle of red wine, appetizer and meal! The pace in which everything was served was just what we were looking for- relaxed! What really made the night was the pleasant staff! They went above and beyond to make the night memorable! Make sure you park in their... More

My husband planned our 43rd Wedding anniversary dinner at On20. We had a window table that had magnificent city views. The Dining room is a big open space with huge wIndows all around, yet the placement of the tables , lovely decor , and lighting accents affords a feeling of privacy. The menu was amazing, and we enjoyed our selections.... More

For my birthday my wife surprised me with reservations at ON20. I enjoy eating different foods and trying differnt food items and I was most definitely not dissappointed. The location is on the 20th floor of the UBS building in Downtown Hartford. A hidden and challanging place to find but I think that is the only downside to this review.... More
