this place tries too hard

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... read 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

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

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.

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

I had a wonderful lunch on the patio, just perfect for a summer day. I had the calamari salad which was excellent. There were three of us and no one was disappointed with the food. The back patio is suprisingly private and quiet, more like dinning in a garden as it doesn't really have a water view. The service is... More
