Different type of ambiance. Open floor plan downstairs & space upstairs as well. Nice ladies room. Very good food. We especially loved the she-crab soup.

J. Christian's is becoming a regular place to stop at for dinner on my trips between Boston and NYC. This is the third time there in a little over a year and each time the food has been excellent. Coincidently, I have gotten the same table each time. So, it is beginning to feel like MY table. The Mac and... More

Steak was terrible. Covered in BBQ sauce which was not explained on menu. Waitperson did not care. Pricey.

So we were last when the first were opened and we not impressed. Only recently a friend mentioned the "loved" his place - so we decided to come back and give it a try. First, we like to sit by at the bar and sit side=by-side and catch up. So we were thrilled to find two empty seats at a... More

My husband and I have eaten here a few times and have not been totally blown away by the food. It's good, not excellent. They have been open for a while and still seem to be trying to figure out what kind of reastaurant they want to be...We usually head in there for a night cap because Anthony, the bartender... More

We have dined at J Christian's several times and consistently have delicious food and great service. The staff is friendly and efficient. I particularly like that they offer small or large portions of several menu choices. Good wine selection by the glass. Would highly recommend this for a date or romantic occasion. Short ribs are always a good choice.

I read all reviews decided to give this place a shot. I fell in love with the classic/historic pictures and my husband and I were not disappointed. It's GORGEOUS inside! The original bank had been perfectly updated and reminded us of restaurants we used to visit in Boston. We were seated upstairs right by a gas fireplace. Service was great!... More

One doesn't think of Wallingford as an epicenter of gourmet dining, but J. Christian's changes that. A recent visit offered excellent food, great service, and a very festive atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit!
