The ambiance is charming and the servers make you feel right at home - whether dining at the bar or at a table. The food is out of this world - - - from the garlic knots to start - the Chilean Sea Bass, the Zuppa diPesce, the steaks - - - to the killer desserts - bread pudding is... More

I had the Sea Bass, others had the filet, and a seafood special. Desserts were also fantastic! This was truly our best Christmas holiday dinner in 30 years!! We... More

Dalton's has been in business for a number of years, and it is easy to get to for us. We visited recently, and we found it just as good now as it has been in the past. Service was excellent, food was great. i had blackened shrimp and my wife had veal marsala. Both dishes were very tasty and you... More

This place is my "go to." Great bar and staff that are always friendly. The specials are just that...always great. Short ribs are fantastic, salmon done perfect and a great bolognese. The Meatball salad is great as is the eggplant rollatini. I loved the Chilean sea bass with black rice as well as the seared tuna "asian" special that I... More

As a frequent visitor to Daltons as well as a big fan I was a bit surprised with latest visit. Great food & service; however, was charged full price for appetizers during happy hour and was told you need to 'ask' before you order if not in the bar area which is literally steps away. Must be a new policy... More

Dalton's is one of the few restaurants I can count on to be consistently good. The food never disappoints, whether it's lunch or dinner. I always take visiting guests there because I know the meal will be excellent. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

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
