Reviewed January 21, 2013

Not very vegitarian friendly, chef was too busy that night to steam some aspargus without butter. Out of the "special of the day" waitress nice enough but easity flustered. Beautiful view

“Arguing on my visit”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Waitrons fought (actual shouting) most of my breakfast visit - but go there and take the buffet (don't need much service) and enjoy the spectacular views

“Nice location but...”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Nice location but it's at the top of the hotel-19 stories and we got stuck in a fire alarm and had to navigate all those floors-if you're handicapped, elderly, or just not in good shape keep that in mind.

“Great food, Great View”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Had dinner at Davenport's while visiting daughter at Yale. Located on top floor of Omni Hotel 2 blocks from Yale University. Attentive but obtrusive at times service--4-5 different folks asking us how was our meal, but not rushed! Nice view overlooking New haven green , East Rock park, and Yale University. Several nice gluten free choices on menu-- I had Arctic Char over Quinoa. Extensive wine list.
