Awesome atmosphere and great service!

I loved dining at John Davenports! I really loved the decor and the beautiful view, but most of all our servers Adan and Chris were awesome! The overall service was great. I also really enjoyed the beverages.

This is the second year that my family celebrated a holiday dinner at John Davenport's at the Omni in New Haven, CT, on 25-Dec. We had seating starting at 5:00 PM and enjoyed dinner and conversation until 8:00 PM (there are 2 earlier seatings). The staff are true professionals. The food was excellent with choices from smoked fish, cold shellfish,... More

Went here because their fixed menu for restaurant week offered enough choices that all the people with various limited diets in our party could find something to enjoy. And we did! The food was good, the service was excellent, and we enjoyed the view of New Haven.

Great breakfast buffet...dinner is overpriced, overly dressed and disappointing. Skip it and cross the street to the Temple Grill, next door to Barcelona's or the Cask

The service was 5 stars, every person we had contact with was delightful from the hostess to the server who seated us. He even turned the table sideways for us so we could both appreciate the view, Chris our fantastic waiter, and the manager who stopped by as well. All were very skilled at giving the best customer service possible.... More

I contacted John Davenports Restaurant at the Omni Hotel about trying to recreate my wedding reception dinner to celebrate the fifth wedding anniversary as a surprise for my beautiful wife. Their response was so incredible, I want to share it with others. I found that most of the items served at our wedding are not currently on the menu, however... More

The continental had everything I wanted (and I'm picky) for $17: fresh fruit including strawberries, excellent scones, plain yoghurt, fresh OJ, espresso. Waitresses are warm, friendly and efficient.
