Love this place. Nice atmosphere. Owners are very nice people. Serve is great. Food is excellent. Parking is tricky and you have to feed the meters.

Service is friendly, never crowded, food is tasty. Sandwiches and simple salads are good bets. Happy hours are a great deal with terrific food and drink specials…especially the calamari, seared tuna and shrimp. Their cooking classes are superb and lunch club members get super $$$ deals, daily. The atmosphere is very whimsical and quirky ….an old firehouse with treasures from... More

Just went last night with my wife and ordered drinks and appetizers. The hostess was at the door to greet us with a nice smile and explained the seating and menus. Sat in a table for two in the bar area overlooking the sunken dinning area. 7:00pm Friday night and not many in the dinning room I was not confident... More

We highly recommend the Two Steps Downtown Grill in the heart of down town Danbury, CT. We happened to go when there was a great Danbury Restaurant week special going on the last week of February 2016, so had excellent meals which included a bottle of wine to share per couple. Two Steps is on the backside of main street... More

The sandwich would have been edible but the bottom bun was a soggy mess so there was no way to safely pick it up. Real disappointment.

Have met friends for lunch several times, food is always tasty and menus change with the seasons. Service is great, friendly and prompt. Love the space for lunch as the sun shines into the front windows that were installed in place of the former garage doors. Parking is in the city garage which is half a block away, not a... More

Great Menu variety -steak lovers will have a cut prepared perfectly, my personal favorite is chicken Monterey which comes with mashed potatoes, great comfort food. Another favorite is the blackened tilapia.

Used to eat at Two Steps all the time when my kids were younger. It's in an old firehouse, they used to have boots hanging from the ceiling that people made into things. The kids loved trying to find new ones, then one day that was gone, I believe in wasn't up to fire code. Still a cool old building,... More
