We were a group of six looking for dinner after being at the Civic Center. We had sandwiches, burgers, salads and chicken pot pie. The meals were tasty and the service was good. The IPA was good too.

Great location for a corporate event. Our team of 30 hung out in the bar with a great selection of beers and then attended a private comedy show. The comedy show was FABULOUS!!

My first evening out in Hartford was to City Steam and it was just about OK. I felt they are doing too well to care about customers. The beer was good but they got our order for barbecue ribs wrong/uncooked twice and then when it finally came well done, the staff was in a hurry and cleared our table when... More

Our group of 5 really loved this place. We waited about 15 minutes for a table, which was shorter than we we expected. The beer (I'm told) was awesome, and I greatly enjoyed the Sexi Lexi. Food was delicious. Service was amazing. Highly recommend.

Wish we lived closer, as we would go to this place more often. Food was excellent. My husband had pretzel mustard salmon and I had a beer battered chicken cheddar sandwich. My sandwich was a bit bland, but still tasty and cooked well. His salmon was great. Good beer selection. The architecture of the building is very interesting. I peeked... More

My 1st experience here, it' all good! Need to go back to learn a little more about it. But I so enjoyed the charm even as you enter ( there are no tables near the door) the curved wall separates the eating area. It has a dark pub look, but did not seam dingy! Bar on left, straight ahead has... More

This place came highly recommended. Stopped in mid afternoon. Was greeted and seated quickly. We ordered a coffee and a soda. The soda came and I was told they were making it. We place our food order and it came (before my coffee). Both dishes were in correct. I was starved so I settle for the mistake. The other dish... More

Good Afternoon. I would first like to thank you for coming out and visiting us! Secondly, I would like to apologize for the service you received. We pride ourselves on a great customer experience and this is unacceptable. If you could provide some information to us so we may follow up with the server on the proper procedures we take... More

Sat at the bar looking for a quick lunch. Diet Coke tasted weird. Order a cheddar chicken sandwich. Arrived in reasonable amount of time. Fries were lukewarm, sandwich lacked flavor and bread was stale. Service was slow. It took awhile for someone to check in after my food was delivered.
