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.

    As always, Feng offered consistent excellence. The service was cheery and efficient, even though our order was relatively small. The food was outstanding, with fine sushi, fresh edamame, an outstanding, crispy-edged scallion/seafood pancake, and some of the best calamari we've ever eaten. The wine list is comprehensive, if a teeny bit pricey--but that's to be expected in a top-grade restaurant.

    I have been to Feng many times over period of many years and have had many memorable experiences over the course of that time. However, my last two experiences at Feng have been far from what I have come to expect from the restaurant. Only the expensive specialty sushi rolls are made to order, the more basic sushi rolls such as the tuna, salmon, and spicy rolls having been prepared earlier in the day. The rolls are far from fresh and leave you disappointed. Lastly, the wait staff leaves me feeling as though I am wasting their time and they clearly want to get me in and out. During my most recent visit our waitress, Brianna, was dismissive to the point of being rude and left me not wanting to spend my money at Feng in the future.

    The food we were served at a recent lunch at Feng was rather ordinary. The Pad Thai and pineapple chicken dishes were overly salty and the ingredients lacked the fresh crispness we were expecting. However, the green tea ice cream was tasty. The service was excellent.

    When we arrived for my son's birthday dinner, we were greeted outside by the manager and the executive chef/owner. We were coming in with a group of 15, including some friends who are in town for a conference. They were absolutely some of the friendliest staff in a restaurant, and with such a large group, our waitress nailed every single order from apps through dessert and cordials. The food was fantastic and they were able to accommodate mediators to vegetarians without breaking a sweat. We have been here before and we will definitely be back.

    I'm in Hartford once a year for a weekend conference and always stop in at Feng for great sushi. The catch: I have to eat gluten free. They've usually taken great care of me. This year, they even had a gluten-free menu to offer, which pleased me greatly. However, my server seemed less certain about how to take care of me than servers I'd had in previous visits, and I had quite a long wait for GF soy sauce to be provided. Finally had to ask a different server for help.

    The seafood scallion pancakes were outstanding, raising our optimism. The the spring rolls were dreary, and nothing else lived up to the pancakes. The Florida red snapper was well prepared, but it came with a dipping sauce that tasted as if it were full of that nasty chopped garlic you buy in a jar. Sushi was fine, but not remarkable. We may to there again, but we're not in a rush.

    The restaurant was not very crowded for a Saturday night, yet the noise level was significant. Our server was very pleasant and appropriately attentive. It was a warmer night than usual for this time of year, and rather humid outside. The front door was left open, and I found the temperature in the room to be very uncomfortable although my fiancée did not. We ordered one appetizer to share, and only a few moments after it arrived, our entrees did, as well. I felt very rushed. This overall experience is much different from the excellent ones we have had in the past.

    I specifically made a reservation at feng hartford because they advertise free parking for dinner on Saturday. When we arrived we were told the policy had changed but the website had not been updates. How convenient. This restaurant was very empty on a Saturday night and perhaps this is one reason. They are liars and swindled my husband and I. Please feng, be honorable and stand by your website.

    I get to Hartford on business a few times a year, and Feng is always 1st on my list. Menu, food quality, atmosphere and especially the service, make this restaurant one of my favorite sushi spots in the country. This trip was no exception. Fabulous! What I love most about this spot is that I can take anyone there....sushi novice or pro....and the servers are so knowledgable and professional that they put everyone at ease and guide people through the menu and menu choices. The fish is spectacular in both presentation and preparation, as well as quality. Great work Feng! Love it!

    This restaurant did not disappoint me. It lived up to it's hype!! The food was very good. The service was outstanding. Very attentive which I appreciate. We had to sit in the bar area at a high top due to large parties in the main dining area. The ambience was lovely and we didn't mind the bar area. It was quieter than the dining room.

    I decided to try Feng because I wanted something a little upscale and loved the sister restaurant Ginza. The online menu looked creative and delicious and I was happy to see them offering free valet parking as parking in Hartford on a weekend evening can be challenging. I pulled up and not only was there no free valet, there was no valet parking at all. The experience went down hill from there. Numerous items on the menu were no longer being offered but they didn't tell us that until after we ordered and they brought out things that were completely different from what was on the menu. We sent back 2 appetizers, ate the sushi roll and left. The same sushi can be had at Ginza for a lot less money and non-sushi items were awful. Don't go.

    I was excited to eat at Feng, as it has excellent reviews, though I will not be returning or recommending it to anyone. It's very nice inside, but my party of two was seated at a cramped table against the wall, and it took a while before anyone came to take care of us. The waiter began to ask if we were interested in cocktails, then started to say, "I didn't realize...", and when I asked what he was talking about, he changed the subject and asked if we would like appetizers. We both ordered appetizers, a large roll, and a basic roll. The basic rolls were never brought out, though we weren't charged. We were never asked how our meals were, and were pretty much ignored. No one ever refilled our water glasses. Not impressed.

    We were looking forward to this restaurant as it was rated highly for sushi. We made a reservation for 6:00 pm and we were seated promptly. The restaurant was fairly empty at this early time with maybe 6-7 other tables occupied. The service was incredible slow for the number of customers in the restaurant. It took our waiter 25 minutes to get to our table. Other tables had better service so I got up and asked if I could move to another table, this prompted the manager to step in and the adjacent waiter to assist our waiter. The menus remained on our table for 40 minutes after we sat down. The food and service from Ginza is much better. We will not return to Feng.

    We asked for Tuna tartare that wasn't on the menu and it was prepared specially for us. Previously it was served just as chopped tuna and we could spice it up to our liking, this time it came with a lot soya sauce. Lamb pieces were just ok. Previously they didn't want to accept the Feng appreciation card, this time they did accept and they apologized for the the previous missunderstanding. Feng in Canton has more elaborate menu and better atmosphere.

    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!

    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.
