The service was uninspired and slow. The food was not acceptable. My girlfriend's steak was not cooked they way she had requested and it was more than 50% fat. My steak was cooked the way I ordered it but again had more fat than expected. They did comp 1 meal & 2 desserts. I had told them that this was an anniversary but nobody even mentioned it to us. We were very disappointed.

We went here last month for the first time and had the perfect evening. Food, service, ambiance. We decided to go again for date night. We shared scallops for our appetizer again and as usual they would to die for. My husband had the Filet Mignon and I had the ribeye. He had the Filet the last time and it was cooked a perfect medium rare. This time however his was rare in the middle. My thick ribeye was charred but it was charred entirely and yet the center was also a warm rare. They put it back on the grill fortunately but ended up making his dry and mine even more burnt on the outside and nearly inedible. We will still go back most likely but it was such a disappointment from out first experience.

Clean and presentable table. Ambiance noise level was high; lighting was too harsh, better if staff keep it subdued. Beef Filet was medium rare, ordered medium well. Quality was very good. Service was attentive.

Stopped here overnight on a vacation trip. Had nade reservations which we didn't need, place was empty at 6:30 PM. No bread or salad, meal was " different and not in a good way " I had fish with noodles and it was more like fish soup. OK portions but Costly not worth the meal. Hotel is for business seminars and I don't believe local visits for a meal. NO AMBIANCE AT ALL. No view over a lake in fact no view. Would not recommend.

Consistently good food and service. Eat here approx 10x annually and always preferred. Food creative and good variety of meat, fish and poultry. Salads great, soups too. Last pasta dish was a bit overdone but not enough to send back; more aldente would be only suggestion to chef.

Disappointing. I ordered a Cesar salad light dressing. I had no dressing. It was served w croutons. Parmesan crisp. Both pre packaged. I could have made this home for .50 cents.
My friend asked for steak fries instead of mashed potatoes. Literally only 5 steak fries. Place was empty. When making reservations I noticed any time was good I should have known. No one goes here.

Poor experience. Have been before and have enjoyed the steaks, especially with the roasted garlic that comes with them. Menu however changed. Only 3 steak options. Quality of steak quite poor ( I am generally not picky ), especially for the price. I had the rib eye and it was very chewy/tough. Salad was the best thing about the dinner. Service good. Will not be going back.

The food is delicious...this restaurant has a smooth ambience and you’ll feel you are at a 5 star restaurant. LOVE this place.

We both thought it was excellent! We enjoyed great service, great food and atmosphere. It was a quiet evening out for us so I can't review the drinks or if they had an outdoor area but if they did that would have just been a bonus. Definitely go there again!

Restaurant is located adjacent to Mystic Marriott so for ease while staying there last year we dined at Octagon. What a find! It was so much better than expected and we are used to NY/NJ great restaurants. The food is excellent, good selection for family who are fish only eaters, gluten free eaters, picky eaters. We have since dined at Octagon about 8 times and have always enjoyed our meals and selections. It's great when travelling not to have to find a liquor store and their selection of spirits is good. My son finds tons of gluten free options and particularly loves their GF bread - thank you chef. The fish is always fresh and tasty. We invited a local resident friend to join us last week who lives in the area but had never dined there. She too had a positive experience. We will be back!

My wife and I went for our anniversary .
We had been before and had a wonderful experience, so when we were looking for a great steakhouse this was it. To our surprise the menu had completely changed! The menu on Open Table didn't match the one in the restaurant. Not even close! It had changed from a steakhouse to a family restaurant. The manager and staff were very accommodating and made it a great night for us anyway.
Open Table should make sure their listings are up to date.

We were looking for a fine dining experience for lunch, and made a reservation. We were disappointed that this restaurant was in a chain hotel. Also, the restaurant is closed for lunch, so we ate in the bar area. That was one expensive hamburger and fries!

Lorraine was an excellent server and cannot recommend her enough. The Wedge Salad had some of the best blue cheese I've tasted in some time. Also well balanced amounts of cheese / bacon / dressing / salad. Often the bacon can overwhelm, but not here.

The French Onion Soup was solid. My wife commented bouillon-ish, but I thought beef based. Very cheesy and not a drop left.

My son's salmon was simply seared and excellent temperature and taste wise.
My wife's tuna was perfectly lightly seared.

Last, but really first - nice G&T to start with.

Overall, for a last minute dinner choice, we all left feeling the food was great and so was the service.

Service as always was flawless. Our wine selection was available and the choice of entrees were varied.

The short rib continues to be a stand-out.

This was my second visit to Octagon. Pierrette was a delightful server, professional, capable, enjoyable to talk to and a fellow vinophile. I was eating light so I just had a steak to get my protein in for the day. It was the ribeye, cooked perfectly and very tasty. This experience was much better than my last.

Octagon was not very crowded, there seem to be more people at the adjacent bar than in the restaurant and I believe the food is different as well. I find Octagon to be a very "cold" restaurant. It has a huge open grill area that must be used for other occasions because I certainly did not smell the amazing fragrance of steak cooking. There is a long bench with approx. 4 tables on each side, so diners sit back to back. On one side is a view of the lobby basically and the other side offers a view of the room. There is a nice wine display room that separates the main dining room from the private seating area.

All in all the experience was better than my first visit but one might think the food is subpar based on the lack of patrons during the week. Perhaps some creative advertising, specials, wine specials, promotions could pack this place daily because the food really is good.

Did I mention Pierrette is excellent!!!

We stayed at The Marriot at Mystic because we had tickets to see Chris Rock at Mohegan Sun. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and Octagon added to the experience. My husband and I decided to go for steak. I had the NY sirloin with black pepper rub and my husband had the Ribeye with black sambuca sauce. They were both delicious! We had a Caesar salad appetizer and for sides we had mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and neeeded a nice long walk to burn it off, that's when Mohegan Sun came in helpful. We highly recommend Octogan and the Marriott!

I visited Octagon after reading a few reviews on Opentable and also to continue my quest for great tasting steaks. Jess was my server and she was really terrific. Spot on service. The portobello fries were delicious. Not to much batter and the chipotle aioli was very tasty.

Now for the steak. Nice big piece of ribeye, cooked very nicely, but pretty flavorless. Perhaps they don't season the meat because they offer numerous rubs and sauces. I also found it tough comparing it to something I could find at a standard grocery store rather than a high end restaurant. I am also wondering if their meat is frozen as it had that blandness to it.

Food was just mehhh, seafood platter was watery and possibly sitting around for awhile. Lobster tail was watery and stuck to the shell leading me to believe that it had been cooked and then stored in the frig for a day or two, rubbery and tasteless as was the the shrimp cocktail. Food was uninspired and restaurant had no ambience. Host welcomed us warmly and sat us at a nice table. Server was pleasant but unenthusiastic. Restaurant was blah and felt a bit abandoned with no style or decor. Overall disappointing 😟. Wouldn't consider this a destination, just a basic hotel 3 meal restaurant.

Went to a steak house and didn't order steak.... but that's our schtick....cocktails and apps are our thing. Lauren was our server. Very professional and courteous. First round of drinks took a bit long. I didn't complain as I was relaxed and enjoying ambiance and server came over shortly after receiving them and notified us she cleared with Mgr to take them off the bill. Very much on top of the customer. I love it.
Had the arancini app. Very good but a bit bland. Surf and turf chowder was excellent. Crab cake was very crab stuffed for a 12$ crab cake. Cocktails delish and tempura battered portabella fries very crispy and well done!! Will go again.
