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

My beau and I celebrated our anniversary here and we chose it specifically for the promise of a great view - which the restaurant absolutely delivers on. Beautiful views of Hartford and outlying towns, especially at night, so yes this restaurant can certainly be romantic. There are so many things to be said about our night here, I'm not sure... More

I was recently taken here as a graduation celebration. I didn't give this place a full five stars because it is kind of a weird atmosphere there. The views are awesome and the staff is friendly enough but I've received better service elsewhere. However, I enjoyed every part of my meal from the seemingly simple Green appetizer which had a...

My wife & I dined here a week ago with another couple. We hadn't been here for a number of years when they had an excellent chef who subsequently left the restaurant for greener pastures. We then refrained from going here until last week. Their present chef, Jeffrey Lizotte, is incredibly talented and is every bit as good as the... More
