I've been to Butterfly several times for dinner and it's usually quite good. Today was lunch and it didn't measure up. There was no tea served, the wonton soup was lukewarm and I don't think the wontons were completely cooked. Though there were several dried peppers in the General Tso chicken, it was VERY bland. The service was quick and efficient, minimally friendly. I guess I'll stick with the dinner crowd!

One of the best Chinese restaurants in CT. The food is always prepared well and the service is wonderful. It's a beautiful restaurant and the meals are never overpriced or overcooked.

We stopped going to the Butterfly about 10 years ago. It was overpriced and the quality was mediocre at best. I went there about a year ago and they had improved enough that I have added it to my list of possible Chinese restaurants for a weekend night. A few months ago I returned and was delighted to see a new menu with offerings far beyond the typical Chinese fare in CT.
It is now my favorite Chinese restaurant in the Hartford area. They have a good bar and usually a piano player during the dinner hour, but it is the unique menu items that have elevated their stature.

RIght on the main drag on Farmington Ave. between HFD and West HFD. Pretty much all the items that you would see on any Chinese menu. The food was alright, but then all Chinese food tastes the same to me.
