Traveled to Wallingford for business and stopped by J.Christian's for dinner and it was wonderful. Service was great and food even better. Business partners had the mac n' cheese and it was overflowing the plate with baked breadcrumbs and bacon - incredible. Also sampled the brussel sprouts and they were sautéed in garlic, onion and other delicious stuff....if you can... More

Small plates at small prices from 4:30-6:30. I ate at the bar on a recent business trip. Looks like a nice menu but I had a cheese platter that was nicely assembled with good quality items. Decent wine list and by the glass offerings along with full bar.

Very nice restaurant. Service efficient. Food was ok, but nothing outstanding. I had the chicken Milano. The chicken cutlet had more of of chicken nugget type fried taste. Sauce and pasta,ok. Other dishes were the wild salmon entree, gorgonzola salad, short ribs. Good, but nothing special. Nice with the fireplace, though on the cold, rainy night we were there.

A recent visit to J Christian's surprised us by the quality of their cocktails and food. True classic cocktails made with premium spirits brought a smile to our faces. The food was equally as good; well prepared and presented. If you're in the area, I'd recommend J. Christian's. You won't be disappointed!

Second time eating here and the food and service were very good both times. Place just doesn't have very much atmosphere. Would go back again.

Without question the finest decor in Wallingford. And great food to go with it. Super bar and happy-hour small plates, the best.

Food is outstanding and service is excellent. Weeknight atmosphere is great but Saturday night dinner tends to be rather noisy and distracts from the dining experience.

Been to their place a few times over the years and I've never been disappointed. For an appetizer we had the portobello mushroom stuffed with crab. Very nice. But, the entree which I almost didn't get, was the shrimp and grits. I don't like grits which is why I wasn't considering this dish, but my wife convinced me to get... More

My fiancé and I were excited to try this restaurant; However, I tried calling the restaurant 5 times over the course of 2 hours and was not able to get a hold of someone. I decided to leave a message, as the message prompt told me to do so, and request a time for a reservation. The message prompt stated... More

I really like Wallingford but as soon as you walk into this restaurant you will feel like you are in a metropolitan restaurant. Prices are a little high but the food is delicious! Atmosphere is gorgeous. I have been there many times with friends, family and by myself. It's a great place to go!
