We were in the New Haven area for a weekend family function, but it was my husband's birthday and we wanted more interesting fare than what our hotel offered. The restaurant is beautiful, and the service, both on the phone and in person was impeccable. They were able to accommodate our request for a handicap accessible table, we arrived early... More

J. Christians is one of the most beautiful restaurants in the area. When they first opened we tried dinner several times and even hosted a special event in the upstairs. Unfortunately, the food is not consistent. I'm not a big fan of the menu, the food is usually luke warm at best, not hot and not always good, just average.... More

The service here is slow for no reason. A few drinks and apps and we waited forever. This place has potential but they've got work hard at being quicker with getting orders out.

This was my second time at J. Christian's. The first was for lunch. This time was for dinner. This restaurant is located in a 1920's bank building with lots of light and seating in a balcony that overlooks the bar area and main floor. The American menu changes frequently and features dishes that are not the same old thing. The... More

My wife and I came here for the first time last week to have dinner before a show at The Oakdale THeater. At first we were a bit concerned because our young waitress was not aware if they had sparkling mineral water. We asked for "just sparkling" and she brought out Pellegrino 15 minutes later. After gently advising her that... More

This was our first time at J. Christian's and the place is beautiful. We sat on the second floor and looked down over the bar. The Short ribs over the Grits were to die for and the orange ginger chicken app was better then most Chinese Restaurants. Portions are big. All in All an upscale place that was very friendly... More

I took my husband there for his bday. The hostess was amazing and put us in a table in the balcony overlooking the bar and entrance. I recommend the BBQ shrimp, crab cakes, salmon, shrimp n grits.... Absolutely amazing! Great food for great price. Very relaxed dress code.

Dined there twice in the last two years. Each time we were struck by how wonderfully the old bank structure, wood, fittings, stairs and the adapted bar were in keeping with the appearance of a promising restaurant. Such a pity that the food is, at the very least, unremarkable and had not Improved since our first visit, a visit that... More

My first time to visit this restaurant as recommended by the front desk clerk at the hotel I was staying at. I came to have dinner here with two other friends on a week night. Service was slow though there weren't too many customers then. My one friend who was a chef, ordered a medium rare steak, but got a... More
