There were four of us for dinner. We sat in a booth and it was a little tight. For the most part everything was OK. The food was good. No bread with dinner. Maybe that was our waitress forgetting. At the end she said she was going to make new coffee and never brought it. I had to ask another... More

Park in the back. We saw the sign off the street and unknowingly parked in the front, the restaurant is in the back. The food was abundant. Tasty. The atmosphere was small and quaint. Capacity is set at 85, so it is that small. Great staff. I mean, excellent fun and engaging staff! Served with personality and a smile! The... More

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner very much. The staff was very attentive to our needs, they worked very well as a team. Our meals came out in a timely manner and we're very good. We would highly recommend the restaurant!

Food was very good... More

Go often because we live right near it. Love the atmosphere, food is great, and wait staff is always friendly. If I had to say one thing that bugs me, it would have to be the linens. I'm all about homey, and its not so bad the napkins don't match, but an iron would be nice.

Just a few minutes ago, I saw an ad for the Rathskeller in which the NY Times referred to the restaurant as "...reliably tasty." I have to say that they nailed it. That phrase captures our recent dining experience there. Among the many dishes we tried, Rathskellar did not have "peaks and valleys." It had "peaks and plateaus." Some dishes... More

I went back after not being there for a couple years. The food was not very good. Poorly prepared, low quality provisions and lacked seasoning.

The entrée list is extensive and every meal we've had was well prepared. Deserts are excellent too. Friendly staff and a small, intimate atmosphere. Prices are quite good especially considering how good the food is. We like it every time we go there.i always make it a place to visit every-time I'm in Conn. and take my family there. Don... More
