We made reservations for 7:30 on a Saturday night, there was plenty of seating. Our drinks took for ever to get. 10 - 15 minutes to get drinks is a bit excessive. While other tables were served bread while they waited for drinks and we had to ask for some. Our "chopped" salads were not chopped, large pieces of lettuce... More

I recently dined at the Octagon restaurant with a coworker while staying at the Marriott for business. We both got the filet & one side each. Everything was absolutely delicious & the steaks were cooked perfect! The staff was very friendly & the service was fast. The only downside is that the restaurant is somewhat expensive & everything is ala... More

This was our second visit to the Mystic Marriott. The restaurant is located within the hotel. We had two amazing meals with filet mignon, potatoes au gratin, and creamed spinach. It was so great, we ordered the same thing the next night. It was very quiet and romantic. We were celebrating my husband's retirement. The service by Nathaniel was impeccable!... More

Paul's is a great place to go and have homemade Pasta. They make everything from scratch, my favorite is the meat lasagna. They do not take reservations and you WILL wait to get seated most nights and you WILL stand outside so come prepared. One of the last few places that have an outstanding reputation for homemade food on a... More

Had breakfast buffet here in Sept after staying overnight. Staff was great especially the chef in the buffet area. The rest of the property isn't as good. Our October visit wasn't as good.

My new husband and I were gifted dinner here for the first night of our honeymoon in Mystic, CT. From the minute we walked in we were treated like royalty, and in looking around that was how every guest was being treated. Our server Angela could not have been more amazing and accommodating and at the end of the meal... More

Service and ambiance was good. I enjoyed my wedge salad. The bread served with olive tapenade and butter was nice. Now being that this is a steakhouse, I figured I would splurge on the ribeye. Unfortunately, my friend and I were both disappointed in our steaks. They were not tender at all. Another dinner companion had gotten the lamb dish... More

Given the location and price I expected a more appealing decor with great food. What you get is a noisy, cafeteria layout eatery. The food was not much to rave about. I had duck and my wife had scallops. The scallops were gritty with sand. The duck was ok at best, and my French onion soup was best part of... More

My husband and we're staying at the Marriott in Groton and wanted to get dinner before we checked in. We had been to the highest rated restaurant last year and were not impressed. Then we remembered the restaurant in the hotel which wasn't then listed at all on trip advisor. The meal was fantastic, service perfect, it wasn't crowded or... More
