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.

Four of us went to John Davenport's for dinner. Atmosphere is great. Try to sit next to the windows if possible. The wait staff was great and food was quite good. A friend got the halibut, it was amazing. I got the tenderloin which was the special..it was quite good as well. Our waiter, Thomas, was really good. Smart, knew... More

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.

The chef went above and beyond the call of duty to make me an outstanding vegan quinoa dish that made the meat-eaters at the table envious! Lovely ambience, nice wine selection, and first class dining. Plus it's open late. Just wish it was a little more affordable so that we could have gone more than once during our stay!

We were celebrating a very special occasion and we were not disappointed. The food, the view and the exceptional staff made our evening a night to remember. Thanks to all, especially our server Robin, our hostess Erica and Eduardo who made a special dessert for us that was delicious! The staff went above and beyond and we will definitely be... More

Our dinner was absolutely amazing! From start to finish, appetizers to dessert and everything in between, John Davenport's did not disappoint. The staff was very kind and made sure everything was to our standards. We were also very impressed with our waitress Robin, she was in charge of all the tables, but made us feel like we were the only... More
