Very good food

To be fair we can only rate the Pub menu as we were there after 3PM. We had A Reuber and CM Burger which came with soup or salad and fries. Black bean soup was delicious. Food was very good and service was excellent.Give it a try ifs you are near Yale New Heaven. We will have to go back... read more

I have eaten here several times and the food has always been great. The beef ribs are excellent. So are the drinks!

We have been to this restaurant twice. The first time was during restaurant week. We made a reservation but when we got there they didn't have a table for us so they jammed us into the pub area. It was loud and I quickly started getting a headache. I ordered the beef short ribs with polenta and the dish was... More

I agree with other posters here, with a groupon, this place is great, without it, it is overpriced, in my opinion. With that being said, the food was REALLY good, I got the best blackened tuna I have ever had, my husband got the filet and shrimp which was really good and the sirloin medallions were really good too. Parking... More

We had high expectations and things started out wonderful. The 2 appetizers we ordered, grilled scallops and the hot antipasto , were great. But when the entrees arrived, not so great. My husband ordered the steak and it was very nervy. I got the sirloin, lobster and shrimp. The lobster consisted of 2 small claws, they should have been embarrassed... More

We purchased a Groupon that included an appetizer, two glasses of wine, and two main courses for a cost of $55. We were in New Haven during the day so we went in for an early dinner instead of finding something to do to kill time. We arrived and the place was empty. All the tables were decorated with white...

What was known as a CLASS operation has become s "GIN MILL". It was white table cloth and is now a SENIOR pick up joint / neighborhood bar. Loaded with crude language and very noisy. WE LEFT.

This was my first visit here, and it won't be my last! I found the waitstaff friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had calamari which was very fresh. Dipping marinara had a lot of flavor. We both had filet mignon with shrimp and lobster which was delicious. Meal came with a salad of greens with a fantastic balsamic dressing.... More

I went on a Friday night and was immediately seated. We were greeted by a friendly staff. The ambiance was romantic. Our waiter was very attentive. The service was fast. The food was appealing and delicious. The only negative was the parking.

First time here. We went with friends from Stratford. Started off with a bottle of Cabernet. Spring Roll and and the Clams special were the appetizers for the table. Both very good. The four entrees were Scallops, Filet w/ Lobster and Shrimp, Rack of Lamb and the Scallop and Shrimp special. All were fabulous. The waitress and the manager were... More
