In addition to the amazing view and delicious food, the staff was very welcoming and friendly and John Davenport's. They made the dining experience so pleasant and enjoyable. We will be recommending this restaurant to family and friends!

I took my cousin here on her birthday -and this will be a restaurant that she will never forget! Our server Robin was amazing!! She was so personable,, and just down right perfect. The food was impeccable! To say they don't have an extensive menu -what they do offer was DEELISH!!! Including the cocktails. The view at night is flawless. My cousin and I were taking so many pictures -you would think we were tourist..lol. I would highly recommend this place. The ambiance is so romantic if you are planning a date night, or just go to a classy place.

Clearly the stand out feature of John Davenport's at the Top of the Park is the fantastic panoramic view of New Haven, including Yale campus and the harbor. There is nothing like it in the city and it is my favorite New Haven restaurant, one I've returned to many times. The food is excellent and very well presented, though the menu's selection is relatively narrow. The service is superb and has consistently left a very positive impression. While I am rating the ambience as outstanding on account of the view, I would mention that the music choices made in the restaurant (mostly 50s/60s pop) are actually quiet irritating and unfortunately do detract somewhat from the experience. Something instrumental would be less intrusive.

What a wonderful little restaurant I found. I was looking for a place to go for dinner and a friend recomended The John Davenport. I was amazed at the Place. The wait staff were so friendly and kind. I had the scallops and I received a generous portion. It was great!

Great Sunday brunch
The views can't be beat, and the Sunday brunch was delicious. The food was fresh. The selection was wonderful and there were some really nice gluten-free options. For egg lovers, there was a chef preparing custom omelets.

Easy to miss, but don't.
The restaurant is on the top floor of the Omni Hotel and easy to overlook, don't because it has great food along with a lovely view of New Haven and beyond.
Unlike many restaurants, it is also calm and quiet so a good place to have a conversation while you dine.

stunning view+cookie dough dessert!
Dinner is reasonably priced and high quality. Surprisingly doesn't attract too much traffic, so quiet and seats close to the window (with stunning views of New Haven) always seem available. Service is enthusiastic and excited about the food. The cookie dough spring rolls are one of the can't-be-missed food items in New Haven.

Oh the View
Ambiance: The view of New Haven in the fall was breathtaking.
Service: Overall attentive solid service, nothing to complain about but wasn't a "wow" either.
-Taste: Greek salad was good, the burger and crab cake sandwich were amazing! Best hot sandwiches in New Haven and the cookie dough spring roll was innovative and spectacular.

We had a wonderful evening and we dine out often. Our waiter was exceptional and the lobster appetizer was over the top. Can't wait to go again.
It was a little too much food for us. The salad and app was more than enough. We shared a dinner but felt uncomfortable not ordering dinner in such a nice place. Next time would not order dinner and maybe share a dessert instead. Had no room for dessert. Bar area looked interesting. Will try it next time

Although the menu is somewhat limited every dish was fabulous and the ambiance was exactly what we were looking for. Excellent, unobtrusive service complemented by a fantastic view. A sure bet for a special occasion.

The restaurant is on the 19th floor of the Omni Hotel and has floor to ceiling windows
for great views of New Haven and surrounding towns. Modest decoration in muted
tones provides an understated elegance that make it perfect for business or romantic
dining. The wait staff is warm, amiable and professional. The food is excellent in both
taste & presentation which is simple and not an "art project" as you may find in other
high end eateries. Recommend highly.
