This was my first time dining
This was my first time dining at Rooftop 120 and the experience was great! It was warm outside so we were able to sit out on the deck at a high top couch-style table. When the sun set they turned on the heaters which kept us very cozy as we finished our meals. We started with the Tombstone flatbread which was very tasty and a little spicy. For dinner we had the Ahi Tuna that was seared perfectly and the Duck Risotto was delicious! For dessert, we shared the Banana Bread Pudding (recommended by our waitress) and it was to die for! The service was great. Our waitress, whose name I forgot but she was pregnant, and her trainee did an excellent job! They were very attentive, knowledgeable, and made great recommendations from start to finish!

We went late on mid-week night, so was semi-busy. We selected a quiet alcove overlooking the town. Excellent experience after a stressful day.

A bit expensive for the amount of food on the plate.

Drink selection is great!
Drink selection is great! Ambiance is nice. Love the outside area and the bar. Some tables are tricky where one person has to sit on a stool, which is not the most comfortable way to eat. There is no back support.

Where better to spend a warm
Where better to spend a warm spring night than outside at Rooftop 120? It was a crowded weeknight and we were seated outside in the shade, but were quickly moved to the sunny side when a table opened up. Several large groups kept the noise and people-watching levels high. Our famous server, pregnant Alison, was very friendly and attentive. The flatbreads were interesting, and the Kobe burgers quite tasty. We'll be back to enjoy more snacks and drinks on the rooftop.

My wife and I were looking for a more upscale restaurant/ bar to go together for nights without the kids. We found Rooftop 120 and can assure we will become regulars to the place! Great, great food! Hummus and Caesar salad is highly recommended ! Drinks were made well and not watered down! Service was consistent, helpful and friendly. Overall, a great place to be!

Fun, Upscale, Outdoor Bar Scene
Had dinner there Friday evening. Outdoor covered and uncovered dining/bar scene. Food great and reasonably priced. Great for people-watching and socializing at the bar. If you sit I bar area expect it to be rowdy, but can't beat the view. For quiet dining, the indoor dining room looked very nice too.

A Bunch of FUn
Rooftop 120 is not only one of the happening bar scenes in the Hartfor area, it is also a very good restaurant. The menu is limited but creative. The mussels appetizer in red sauce was absolutely delicious which remarkable given a red sauce's ability to bring out the "fishyness" of mussels. The gem of the evening was the salmon which was perfectly cook on a bed of lentils and capers. Others at the table had the swordfish Kabob special which was good but used previously frozen swordfish...somewhat disappointing given the price charged and the fact that the restaurant stressed "fresh". Service was adequate and our waitress was very friendly. Our entire dining experience was great at this fine restaurant.

The Brunch was amazing! I took my Mom there for Mother's Day! I had high hopes since I love Rooftop for fun drinks and small plates. I was not disappointed. The french toast was out of this world! Great job! :)
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my sister to brunch on Mothers' day and we had a GREAT experience! It was only the 3rd Sunday which they offered Brunch but you wouldn't know it! Menu was well diversified as well as the drinks offering! Really enjoyed sitting outside. Waitstaff was great, knowledgable and friendly. Loved that they offered traditional cocktails in a non-alcoholic drink! They weren't listed on the menu, but once my sister commented on the aroma of the fresh mint, and said she didn't drink alcohol, our waitress (Jenna) volunteered that they could make a Mojito sans alcohol!! WOW!! Never heard of, but I tasted it, and sure enough, it was tasty and Very close to the real thing!! Kudos to the bartenders and / or managers for offering this drink!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely will go back!
Food was great, service was great, atmosphere very nice. We had wanted to eat outside but it was pouring. Will go back another time when the weather is better. A couple of dishes were a little overpriced but all in all a great dinner and restaurant.

Late Sunday Brunch
We made a night before reservation for eight of us after the Wesleyan graduation ceremony. Though brunch ends at 3 pm and we got there at 2:45, we were made to feel most welcome and not rushed in the least. The server was super helpful with food allegies and most knowledgable of the menu. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and very original. If we are in CT again, we would most certainly return.
5/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We stopped in before a concert but after we walked in, I didn't want to leave! Loved the inventive menu and the drinks were incredible! Can't wait to stop in again!

I enjoyed dinner with my friend very much, it was a perfect atmosphere and our waitress was wonderful.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had heard great things and i was not disappointed. The ambiance was terrific, outdoors with the fire pits on a beautiful night. Food was great as were the drinks, staff was friendly but a little overwhelmed... I will be back!!

Father's Day with a View
The brunch selections were out of the ordinary and delicious. The Lobster Frittata was absolutely the most delicious egg dish I have ever tasted. The french toast was amazing. Everything was presented beautifully and creatively. The view was outstanding and the service very accommodating. Definitely a special occasion place. . On the pricey side, but worth it. The drinks are abundant and again different and beautifully presented with fresh flowers and berries. I could not say enough good and we will definitely be back.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food/scene was a little trendy but fun. Didn't care for the low table we were seated at. Would go again but request booth or high top table next time.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Really enjoyed our experience.
Really enjoyed our experience. Everyone of us happy with our food selection. Service great

Good food, slow service
The food was very good but service was pretty slow. Overall, pretty good experience but not the best. Tuna is tasty though.
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had a pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend to a friend. Everyone was extremely friendly and even though our waitress was new, she did an amazing job. I cannot wait to return!

First time visit
I have heard about this place so I decided to give it a shot. The food was great. The decor was simple but relaxing. The atmosphere was welcoming. I would definitely recommend this place for a different taste. If you are looking for a good night out with good music and good drinks.. The only downfall is that the server could have been a little more sociable.

Great Find for Brunch
Great food, outstanding service, pleasant ambience, reasonable prices. I needed to update my reservation twice and management was very understanding and supportive.They were very welcoming when at last we arrived. A terrific find. Wish I lived closer.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time at Rooftop 120 and the brunch was delicious. We will definitely be going back to try dinner.

We had a table reserved for 7 for a friends birthday and unexpectedly 3 additional friends showed up. The staff was fantastic and accomodating. Guacamole was delish, Havana rolls were amazing- especially the onion jam they were served with. The signature Corona-rita did not disappoint- i was very pleased with my order and I plan to return to Rooftop 120 again soon, as I live in town although this weekend was my first time.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
great dining experience
Great food. They accomodated my party of 9. They promptly moved us inside once it began to rain.
7/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Usually this place is packed and jumpin'. We came during an off time and were treated to a wonderful experience. The Long Island Ice Tea is made with Midori and fresh juice. Delicious-but unexpected. Seafood salad was outstanding as well as the mahi mahi fish tacos. Grilled and fresh tasting, topped off with pickled onions. Empanadas were a hit as well. It is not cheap, but the food is good and the view is unique in the area. Service was timed well and cheerful.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my second time going to Rooftop 120, both times were amazing. The staff had great energy and so did the DJ. This place would be great for a birthday party or large group.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was awesome, the service was also good. Everything I tried was great, the drinks were a bit strong but not too much.

Roof Top Fun
Great spot, awesome place to meet with friends for a couple of drinks, nice decor and great service. Drinks, wine and Apps were very excellent!

The Lobster Roll was delicious!
The Lobster Roll was delicious! Can't stop thinking about it. I have never had a bad meal there yet, I would recommend this place to anyone who wants outstanding food, great service, and an exciting atmosphere.

Two venues: 1) Best ambiance for the young crowd and singles, especially at happy hour, but extending into the evening.
2) Quieter dining area for the romantics among us.
3) Great food at reasonable prices in both.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Rooftop 120 is a great place. Went with my friends in couple s and we had a blast, the drinks were awesome, the food tasty, greatpeople, and a very energenic atmosphere. I loved it and I would recommended to all my friends and family.

Nice night out
We had a lovely time at Rooftop 120. The food was excellent and the ambience was very romantic and enjoyable.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for dinner and watch the sunset. Was great ( as usual) and the weather cooperated as well. Staff super attentive and helpful. Food was delish and the wine flowed freely. Will be going back again!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the outdoor bar and restaurant. Inside look every nice too but it was a beautiful night. Diverse crowd age wise which was nice. Lots of energy, good music,good food and comfortable seating.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have dined at Rooftop 120 five times over the past two years, and always found it to be very predictable in terms of culinary experience, service and ambience. The food is always very good, and the service and ambience excellent. We were seated in a lovely, quiet nook.
Ronnie and I shared a delicious beet salad with walnut and goat cheese. Alas, the kitchen was out of west coast oysters, so I opted for clams, which were fresh and delicious. For entrees, Ronnie chose a very tasty pork roast and I chose the lobster roll, which was filled with a generous amount of delicious, buttery lobster. Our server was professional and personable.
We completed our dinner with cups of cappucino.

Great Food at a High Cost
The food was great, do not get me wrong, however, the portions, for what you paid, were on the smaller side. It was my first time dining there and I will go back, however, it would not be a regular. A great experience and great atmosphere inside.

Great Happy Hour!!
This was the first experience for our group of ladies dining at Rooftop 120 and it was a great one! We were in the area for a home demonstration party and decided to try out Rooftop 120 for some appetizers and drinks prior to the party. We were glad we did!!! The view was awesome, the bar area was vibrant, the service was very good, the happy hour prices were fabulous and to top it off, all of our food was delicious. We enjoyed the variety of food we ordered and shared. At first we thought we ordered too much, but somehow we managed to finish most of it. We're looking forward to another girl's night out here. We're all from Southington and we agreed that it's worth the drive for us to make a return visit.

I always have a nice time here. Usually come for a latish dinner but leave before 10. Very good food and sitting outside on the roof is nice. They have a lot of heaters out there so the season is pretty long. If you're a foodie it should be in just at the end of your top 20 within 15 miles of hartford.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have eaten here a few times and each time it gets better and better. I would recommend rooftop for happy hour, birthday dinners, brunches the works. The restaurant offers a seasonal menu, so each time its sure to be a delight.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beautiful but noisy
Had a great time, sat as a couple for a relatively romantic evening. However, this was ruined by a very boisterous table that was loud and rambunctious, to the point of one of the patrons falling out of their seat. However, the rest of the restaurant was quiet, nice ambience, and would definitely return, hoping for a slightly less rowdy table near by.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
No words can explain!
This place is awesome!!! First time there and in love ;) def returning soon!!!!

Very enjoyable visit. I will definitely be back for brunch.

Looking forward to a warm weather experience. More low key than I expected but was great for conversation. Staff were very attentive. Food and drink excellent. Special drink request made to order!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We found the menu to be somewhat limitted but the food we chose was good. Our waitress was kind and attentive but did not properly serve us our bottle of wine and needs some training in that area. Overall plesant experience. As it was cold and in the eveningl we could only be inside. Bar area sounded hopping. Prices were on the high side. Overall, we enjoyed the change of going to a different place than usual but believe there are ways Rooftop 120 could be a better experience.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was my first time at Rooftop and I had a great time. I would definitely go back!

The food was very good and the waitresses were very pleasant. We had our son's wedding reception there; I would recommend Rooftop 120 to my friends
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband hasn't seen his best friend in ages. This was a great place for them to reunite in his birthday. The setting was gorgeous with the perfect ambience. They were able to catch up while the ladies chatted. It was also perfect for parents who don't really get out as much but didn't want something that was too much of a party scene. The owner was super nice and came around and greeted us to say happy birthday on two occasions and made sure we were taken care of. Will definately be going back
