A truly delicious meal. Most of the time tasting menus include very small plates, but these were big and we were stuffed by the end. Everything was prepared perfectly, and everything was delicious. And the wine pairing was spectacular.

Beautiful place for lunch. It was very quiet because we were the only ones there. Not sure how it would be with others. We had a great lunch but the menu is very limited. Overall it was a very good time

Just loved it! We had a table at a window which had beautiful views of the Connecticut River and Hartford. We decided to have the Chef Tasting Menu which was probably the most we have ever spent on a dinner. Was it worth it - absolutely! There were 11 courses - each one was terrific! It took about three hours and I tried foods I would have never regularly tried. I have been raving about it ever since! How have I not been here before? Highly recommend!

Service was excellent and food superb.
The manager was very friendly and helpful. He even let us check out the view from the other dining areas.
We went on a Friday and bottles of wine were 1/2 price, an added bonus to a great dinner.

Dining 20 floors above the city of Hartford with a lovely view of the Connecticut River below as the lights of the city turn on is reason enough to dine here. Our server Marie was friendly & helpful. The food is delicious and prepared with care. We dined during the Taste of Hartford week and will certainly dine here again.

Visiting from out of town and had a free night before planned activities started.
This place looked interesting and was near our hotel.
The young lady hostess was a treasure. So sweet and friendly. The wait staff was pleasant and adept.
The “restaurant week” tasting menu was delicious. It was a lovely meal, elegant, yet relaxing.

The service was pathetic for a fine dining standard, 1 guy ran all around served at all the tables, no one asked if food came out good, in fact in 1.5 hours we were only served drinks, starter and main then were asked to wait until after fireworks, which was to start in 20 min. Rudest of all, someone called prior to our arrival to say we will have to leave by certain time as they are fully booked for fireworks and then later their service was so poor we ended up watching fireworks from there. They didn’t even give us a window seat, there were 2 vacant up until 20 min prior to fireworks. If they are charging everyone equally then why not give seats on first come basis. Overall I went there to celebrate my hubby bday but server was not courteous to even wish him happy bday after knowing. Forget about expecting a good dessert. Most fine dine restaurants the experience is different and they make you feel special. They had nothing to offer. They charged us 20% gratuity for a party of 2 for this pathetic service, also nowhere stated or told. Although Food was good, some art work there but their menu is very limited and portions are very small. They served us a regular menu where starter and main dish was $11 each but they charged us $75 at the end. Our server didn’t say anything regarding that at the start. Also included was a dessert buffet for which we had to wait almost an hour as fireworks was starting in 20 min and we had to self serve after that, who self serves in fine dining restaurant. The point is you can keep whatever price in the restaurant but your menu and service should be up to that level.

What a superb experience! Certainly the best fine dining spot in the Hartford area, combined with excellent service and unparalleled views of the Hartford skyline and the Connecticut River. It's a destination worthy of not only special occasions, but lunch, dinner, and even happy hour!

The food is very good, but I object to a restaurant adding a 20% service charge, which is not a gratuity, and not disclosing that in advance on the menu. The service charge does not go to the wait staff, so it is not a gratuity. I tipped the waiter. It is not customary in Hartford to add a service charge, and I felt as though I had been held up. If they want 20% more, then they should add 20% to their prices. I was very disappointed with this practice. It ruined an otherwise satisfactory experience. I will never eat there again.

Wonderful ambiance. The experience was wonderful. Service outstanding. The Chef's Choice menu with wine pairing was outstanding. We will be repeat visitors but will probably order individual items from the excellent menu. The only confusion was that of the 20% "service charge". I had "assumed" from the small print at the bottom of the menu that it was a 20% gratuity, which is what my wife and I generally provide to the wait staff for great service. On20 needs to be specific on its menu with the 20% service charge and what it is (or is not). We ended up leaving an additional gratuity to the staff and I m not sure if I was "cheap" as it was an additional 10% over the total bill. The staff did an outstanding job and I really would like to know if they were adequately compensated for their excellent service.

Compliments to Daniel and crew who make ON20 one of the finest dining experiences in Hartford, if not the finest dining experience in Hartford. Staff go that extra length for special festivities which is always appreciated.
