This was an exquisitely beautiful restaurant with understated elegant decor and the dining experience was top notch! From the delicious Amuse bouche prepared by the chef to a sumptuous dessert, you could feel the passion for the meals that were prepared for you. And each dish was just as artfully plated, which really enhanced the meal. This is not a... More

The waiter was excellent. The staff was excellent. Did I say the restaurant was excellent? The quality was what... More

The food is creative, eclectic and right up any "foodie's" ally! Interesting combinations and fresh local ingredients will delight hit palate. Best service in Hartford- true fine dining. The atmosphere is sophisticated, and has an exclusive feel with an unbeatable view of the CT river. The wine list offers a great selection to fit any budget. Go here!

My date and I had dinner at ON20 on Oct 15th for Hartford restaurant week. They have a limited menu for restaurant week but the courses were well prepared and the service was very attentive. I'm looking forward to returning for the full menu soon.

I had a very nice dinner recently an ON20. I tried their tasting menu with the offered wine pairing and each dish was enjoyable, although it did feel like it was lacking a real "wow" course. Particularly nice dishes, however, were the steak tartare, which had wonderful citrus flavors, and the sea scallop, which was excellently cooked. The staff was... More

This is a very special place indeed. On20 derives its name because the restaurant is on the 20th floor with a magnificent view of the Hartford Skyline and surrounding towns. But that is only the ambiance. The dining experience was phenomenal - the menu creative, exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented.

We went there for our anniversary. I would say that this is a “special occasion” restaurant. It is expensive for Hartford, but not for what you get. In terms of the service, food, ambience, it’s actually very reasonably priced. We had 2 appetizers, 2 entrees (salmon and scallops), 1 desert and a bottle of wine – the bill, with included... More
