“Delicious food, nice ambiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

Went here with friends during New Haven's restaurant week. The food was more than adequate and the service was prompt and polite. The highlight of this restaurant is almost certainly the lovely views of New Haven that you are privy to with its position high above the rest of the city. Lunch time prices are decent, dinner rather pricey. Good place for couples or groups of friends. Seems slightly less than family friendly simply because of the the "vibe" of the entire hotel.

“Sunset Dining!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2012

We enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience at JD's. The setting is lovely & we arrived just before sunset so the view was spectacular. It was a beef night and all were pleased with our choice of steaks, fingerling potatoes & sauteed spinach. The meal was relaxed, the service excellent and we will surely return on a future visit to Connecticut.

“Pretty Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

This restaurant, on the 19th floor of the Omni Hotel, has a nice view overlooking the New Haven Green and parts of the Yale campus. I have eaten there mainly for breakfast when I meet people who are in town for Yale-related business. The food is a step above normal breakfast food at restaurants, but a step below really good places. The food and service are consistent. Overall - pretty good but not spectacular.
