A word from Feng Asian Bistro
Feng Asian Bistro is definitely the place to be. The overall impression is stunning and the swirl of the crowd is exciting. The mix-match possibilities of a menu with sushi and sashimi, rolls, hand rolls, platters, main dishes and sides boggle the mind. Just reading the sushi bar menu makes your mouth water: "Foxy Lady" with calamari, papaya, avocado and salmon; "Italian Stallion," with shrimp tempura, cucumber, asparagus, spicy yellowtail and aoko and momiji sauce; and Feng's signature roll "Number 93," with deep-fried soft shell crab, Parmesan cheese, jalapeno, black caviar and flakes of real gold. With its sophisticated, upscale atmosphere, Feng seems more like the type of restaurant you would expect to find in New York or Boston. It is a refreshing change of pace for diners in the market for something a little more out of the ordinary.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant is well furnished & food is better than adequate, but frankly the place irritated me. I wasn't fond of any of the staff, they only have 2 full booths (which I find to be much more pleasant),& they charged me extra for having no fish & adding some vegetables to a szechuan dish. The manager removed the extra charge but was very clear that the next time I would be charged (I assure you, I muttered to myself that there would not be a next time). It all seems so petty but everything was difficult for them. For instance: The waiter told me tofu couldn't be stir fried, then later he made offensive personal comment, the Xtra charge, & the general attitude of doing us a favor, all made it a less than pleasant evening."

  • "My friends and I went to Feng for my birthday dinner. We were there on a Wednesday, so it was mostly business dinners around us. We commented on how attentive our waiter was. We were all impressed with the sushi options, and they even made a special order of Chicken Teriyaki for my friend who is a little less adventurous. It was a bit pricey, but worth it. I would definitely recommend Feng and I hope to go again!"

  • "We went to fend prior to seeing a show at the bushnell having tickets for a 8:00 show. We informed the waiter when we were seated for our 6:00 reservations, admittedly early for dinner. He assured us he'd have us out in plenty of time without rushing us. You must get the Peking duck which they actually offer for one. Everything fr apps, d sum sampler shared to dinners were perfect. If a special occasion splurge on the Kobe beef app."

  • "Feng is one of the few restaurants I eat at when traveling as it's close to my company's Hartford office. Never had a bad experience there. The food is good and atmosphere is fine. The reason I am writing this review is the service. During our last visit, we had one of the best waiters that I've had in a very long time. He was polite and prompt, as one would hope. He stood out with his knowledge of sake' (explaing the different kinds and why they were different) and the food - really "selling" the menu without being overbearing . When I asked him to pick a sushi roll, he had the chef create one that wasn't on the menu. Having been in the restaurant business for many years, he was the waiter that every manager wants 100 of."

  • "Went before going to see a show at the Bushnell and it was perfect! The food was delicious, the service was friendly, and the atmosphere was great! The food wasn't heavy on my stomach as I sat through a musical wearing skinny pants on a date. A personal win was that there was no mayo in the shrimp tempura roll!!! Would return or recommend in a heartbeat!"

  • "The menu was excellent. Great variety of sushi items, fabulous presentation. Our server was extremely knowledgable and attentive. Everything about Feng was 5 star in our opinion. We were there for a dinner meeting and felt well served and never rushed or intruded on. I'll definitely return on any trip back to the Hartford area."

  • "I made reservations for my gf and I to eat here. I added a request for my girlfriend, nothing crazy, but something little that would make her smile. I noticed they couldn't do the request but did something almost as good, which still impressed her and made her smile. Good job Fengs! The food (simple salads and sushi hand rolls) were delicious and reasonably priced. The decor and lighting was very nice. Waiters and busboys were polite and attentive. Overall a great experience! I hope to go back again soon."

  • "Feng has been one of my favorite restaurants since it came to downtown Hartford. It has an amazing Happy Hour from 4-6pm and even a late night Happy Hour. Feng has the best sushi in CT by far!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Feng's has a contemporary Asian plush luxury, with two gracious dining rooms and a vibrant bar at the front. Convenient to downtown Hartford, and they seem to provide discounted/free valet parking. However, the pricing of both the food and the drink is expensive for the quality/quantity. The appetizers (we had miso soup & steamed edamame) were simplistic, but pricey and "impressively" plated. The sushi rolls, though fresh, were not worthy of the steep charge. In addition, our server kept trying to refill expensive sake orders without request, or permission, and strongly encouraged us to order more (especially the most expensive menu items). Pushy. Good for impressive dates or business dinners. Not so good for casual sushi lovers."

  • "My recent dining experience left me feeling a bit unhappy. I ordered the General Tso's Chicken, which I have had in the past, but this time the chicken was not fully cooked... The waitress was very apologetic and offered me something else, I declined. This in no way changes love for Feng! But I won't order that dish again..."

  • "This time we brought friends who were visiting from out-of-town and are known for critical reviews of any place they've found first. To our surprise they were sincerely impressed with every fact of our dinner - from the welcome at the door to the the final good bye after enjoying 4 fantastic dinners with all the extras. We knew Feng is fantastic, but we were pleased the have that feeling shared by others."

  • "Very specific cuisine that provides selection for those in a group who do not favor that cuisine. Excellent atmosphere - we could have a conversation without raising our voices, even though the restaurant was full. The selection and side that I had were excellent and finished with an excellent cup of coffee. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to have lunch in Hartford."

  • "Went to Feng for Valentine's Day, and was happy to get the reservation. But, we unfortunately had to wait 25 minutes for our table, which was a bummer. The food was excellent, but we were unhappy with the limited menu due to the holiday. Also, even with the limited menu by 9:30pm the restaurant was out of a lot of menu items. What we ordered was excellent, and we left happy in the end."

  • "The sushi is usually one of the best options around, but on this particular occasion, there was a bone in the yellowtail roll."

  • "Food was fantastic, waiter was quick and knowledgeable. The setting was cool, clean and reasonably quiet. I was satisfied by their selection and quality of ingredients. Truely a wonderful dining experience."

  • "The lettuce wrap appetizer was the best part of our meal, but we enjoyed everything. Our experience would have been better if the waitress was more attentive (or worked fewer tables). One should not have to ask for the desert list or check at such an expensive restaurant."

  • "We always have the best sushi here! We love everything about this restaurant!!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Feng has historically been one of those "special occasion" restaurants since the pricing is a bit steep, all be it worth while in the past. Since our last visit they've expanded to include hibachi which has changed the complexion of what used to be a high end, trendy sushi restaurant for the worse. While there, we could hear the chef banging away on the hibachi and at one point the main restaurant filled with smoke and hibachi stench that hung in the air seemingly forever. Feng has unfortunately jumped the shark...too bad. We won't be going back since the price to value ratio is no longer present."

  • "We went to Fengs at 7:30 on New Year's Eve. We were offered Their traditional menu as well as comparably priced New Years specials which were fabulous. The food was, as always, excellent- not too much or too heavy. The health and tasty food at Fengs (and the fast friendly service) was a great way to ring in the New Year."

  • "My husband and I decide to go Hartford for our 1 year Anniversary. This restaurant was the first stop on the list of events for the night and what a stop it was. Feng was the beginning of a amazing night. My husband is especially hard to please and when we walked in he raved about the ambiance then food. The service was great too."

  • "I would say 4.5 stars. I have to say definitely some of the best sushi I've had in CT. The presentation of the rolls are amazing, the combination of meats are excellent, and they tasted fresh! The selection of sake is great. Service was spot on, the decor was trendy and lights were slightly dim in the bar. Best of all was that you could make reservations. Was definitely the pricier of the sushi places I have been but with everything said, well worth the price. I am already looking"

  • "i went in with a business associate and sat at the sushi bar. the waiter was pretty friendly and seemed like he was going to provide great service. i ordered 8 orders (each order = 2 pieces) of sashimi (salmon) - he suggested i try the special king salmon. i said sure. he didn't let me know that the price differential was quite substantial (not a big deal), but that i was only going to get half the pieces and he made it sushi instead of sashimi. when he was clearing my plate he asked me why i ordered sushi if i didn't like the rice (as i hadn't ate it) - he didn't even think that he had messed up the order. then when i asked him about the bill he informed me that he had told me it was 1 piece per order (which never happened).not good."

  • "I've been going here for a few years and something just seems different. The food is good and the service is adequate but in years past the food would just be an explosion of flavor in your mouth. I don't know if its me or is something changed but Feng was a favorite in the past and stood out from the pack. In my mind its just another restaurant today. The bar is also very noisy in the early evening."

  • "Love this place. The food is excellent and they don't seem to mind special requests. Many vegetarian options, e.g., avocado rolls, veggie rolls, cucumber rolls, sweet potato rolls. Often substitute meat items with tofu at no extra cost."

  • "This restaurant has some of the most tasty treats. The atmosphere is elegant and quiet. I dine quite a bit at their sister restaurant Gina in Wethersfield and it always a wonderful experience. Well worth the drive into the city to experience."

  • "We frequently ate at Feng in Canton and have had some dissappointing meals there lately. Items on the menu, no longer being served, chef who wouldn't agree to modify a dish, etc. Since Feng in Downtown Hartford was the original and so innovative when it first opened, we decided to go there instead of Canton. Sorry to say, it was not any better than Canton. The sushi was just ok. Not the best around by a long shot. The filet mignon came out cold and the sauce on the side (yes, they were able to accommodate that request) was even colder. Of the 5 dinners, one sushi roll came out well after everyone else was through eating. No explanations or apologies made. Time to look for other eating options. Feng, we used to love ya."

  • "Made a last minute reservatition at this restaurant which I have driven by a million times over the years. My husband and I loved everything about the place. The lighting and decor were lovely and we have a nice semi circle booth to seat at which was private and charming. The sushi specials were fantastic and the miso soup the best I have ever had. They made the best french martini I have ever tasted and we topped of the meal with a homemade chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich which was out of this world. Fantastic place...we will be back soon."

  • "Another good time at Feng -- this time for lunch -- various Sushi selections on offer including a couple of specials, one was eel and the other I beileve Yellowtail with Jalapeno's. We also tried the Kobe sushi - which comes raw with a heated rock to "grill" your Kobe on very quickly and then dip in a trio of sauces -- very good!"

  • "Absolutely love the sushi at Feng. I have been many times during the work week for lunch but never for dinner on the weekend. Took my spouse - enjoyed the drinks (pomegranate martini and many sake options). Service was perfect - our waiter was not overbearing but was very reponsive. One of our napkins dropped on the floor and the waiter came right over with a clean one. We were never without drinks and our food came quickly but we didn't feel rushed. It was very fluid and the atmosphere is just fantastic! This is one of the best restaurants downtown."

I especially like Feng's because it has fabulous Sushi menu. I do not eat Sushi but other family members do, so it makes it the perfect place for us to dine."

  • "I highly recommend Feng as a place for a business lunch in downtown Hartford. It might be the wrong spot for a truly sensitive discussion, as it's moderately noisy. But the liveliness makes it a fun spot, and the food is still superb. Our service in this latest visit was less than perfect: our waiter was personable, but a little less attentive than usual. Most times I've eaten here, the service has been superb."
