Dalton's appetizers are excellent with special bread and garlic sauce. Daily entree specials also are very good providing a diversified menu.

Dalton's is one of Connecticut's hidden gems, thanks to its obscure location and average curb side appeal. Located in a micro-strip mall on Route 80, it is not a restaurant that attracts patrons due to foot traffic or curiosity. Dalton's stellar reputation is spread the old fashion way, by word of mouth. Their modern, sophisticated interior, though small, is the... More

Dalton's has good food and a nice atmosphere. You can see them preparing the food fresh for each order through the glass wall.

I love this place! I have eaten here several times over the years most recently 2 weeks ago. It was a Friday night and it was very busy. We usually sit in the bar at a hightop table and order dinner. This time we were with friends so had a booth. The service was good (the waitress forgot to bring... More

We received a gift certificate so we went for lunch there today to try it. We had 2 adults and 4 kids. When we arrived at 12:15 we were "greeted" so to speak by a very grouchy hostess/waitress who did not say hello but "how many?" and tried to squash us into a corner table when not even 1 other...

Fantastic Appetizers, tasty and large dinner portions and generous drinks. I especially recommend two appetizers: wild mushrooms and roasted pears (sounds exotic and it was delicious) also quite good was the sweet potato and walnut ravioli. My dinner of rigatoni Bolognese was fantastic. What's not to like? Well, the room is essentially a square space and the bar simply intrudes... More

Very noisy, due to the fact that the bar is right in the midst of the dining! The food was good. We had ordered three appetizers, one being a trio of one eggplant rollatini, one stuffed mushroom and calamari. The calamari was great, tremendous sauce with capers and pignoli(pine) nuts. We could hardly find the piece of eggplant on the... More

Every visit to Dalton's has not disappointed. The food is great (best veal parm around). The drinks are also great and not too pricey. Friendly service each time we have been there. It is now my favorite restaurant. Going this weekend for my birthday!!

We went to an early dinner on a Sunday evening after an afternoon movie. What perfect timing. We had an excellent dinner of seabass. It was huge and delicious. Nice atmosphere and great service!

I ate there with friends on a recent weekday evening. We were greeted and seated promptly. Water and bread (with a delicious dipping sauce) was delivered promptly. Our drink order was taken and we were left time to look at the menu. When the drinks were served, the waitress told us the many specials that were available that evening. I... More
