Work Anniversary Dinner

My boss and his wife took out my husband and I for a nice dinner to celebrate 15 years with his company. We were seated outside and it was a nice evening to enjoy the September weather. The food was good and the staff was nice.

Jeffrey's has been my go-to restaurant for decades, but Claudio has made it an extension of being home. The food is excellent and inventive, the service attentive, and the ambience comfortable. Great for a celebration or any night for a healthy meal.

This has been one of my family's favorite for a really special dinner. But the last couple times it's just not what it was. The food was mediocre compared to what I expect. The service is still good. The room was cold. Just not the place it was, too expensive to not be wowed by the experience.

4 of us went for a business dinner. The food was excellent, done with a nice presentation. The bar was on the other side of the wall so business discussion was good. Dessert menu was good and the service was excellent. Our waitress had a sense of humor to match that of my New Jersey associate. :-) It was a... More

A friend took me to Jeffrey's for a mini-celebration - it was recommended to her by her wine guy. Unfortunately, it reminded me of an old fashioned supper club. The atmosphere was old school, the food worked too hard to be nouveau and impressive - e.g., just a few too many "extra" sauces or spices on any one dish. I... More

I've been going to Jeffrey's for years and to see the level of service and the quality of food rapidly decrease is sad. The owner and staff stood behind the bar and loudly discussed sex and other inappropriate topics with a customer while we were sitting right there. Plus there was a young couple obviously on a first date totally... More

Not a fan of this place at all! Tiny portions of average culinary quality. Ala carte menu as well. Im sorry butnfor 34 dollars you cant give me a side salad with my dried out pork chop? Youre going to charge me 7 bucks more for lettuce tomato and a slice of cucumber? Really????!!! Giving it 2 stars only because... More

We stopped here on our way to Boston after getting a deal on line for dinner. I didn't know what to expect but when we drove up I felt terribly underdressed. Road trip wear doesn't really lend to blending in at a tablecloth restaurant overlooking the water with $25+ entrees. But we were hungry and went in hoping not to... More

We did not feel like cooking, we did not feel like eating turkey or any of the traditional trimmings... we just wanted a really nice dinner on Thanksgiving Day, so we called Jeffrey's where we had enjoyed a wonderful meal, several times in the past. So, our dinner was as special as can be with emphasis on sea food, yes,... More

I joined friends today for lunch at Jeffrey's in MIlford, CT. Because I have Celiac, one of our party had called and asked about gluten-fee choices. The waiter was absolutely rude when questioning me about "gluten-free." He finally asked if I'd like a plain dish of arugula because I had requested that fried calamari be eliminated ignoring the fact that... More
