ON20 Ratings and Reviews
Service was appalling. Asked to explain a dish the waiter confessed that he hadn't tried it and knew little about it only that "customers seem to like it". Unacceptable for this caliber restaurant. Also, our main dishes (the ribeye special) were horribly undercooked and under seasoned. We sent them back. Did they prepare a new dish. Nope.; they stuck what was there under some heat for a bit and sent it back out. Unacceptable for this caliber restaurant. We've been to ON20 several times and the last three times have been disappointing to say the least. We will NOT be back.
We have been here a few times over the yrs. mike was super nice. But service was terrible. We had three courses and it took an hour between each course! For fine dining this is unacceptable. After completing each course, it took a while for someone to take away the empty dishes. Was the restaurant short staffed ? Our waiter had to bus a table. When we wanted to order desserts he hastily dropped the plates and seemed short with us. It doesn’t take an hour to cut cheese and prep one dessert!
Entrees and desserts were delicious but the raw celery root app was one of the worst things I have ever eaten.
We won’t be returning sad to say.
VERY DISSAPOINTING. Terrible service for an overpriced meal. Left without drinks (water or cocktails) for 15 minutes two seperate occasions . Waiter was flustered ,miserable, not helpful and cold.
There was also a couple who were having an outright argument at their table about their personal problems in which the woman was talking so loud we felt like we were part of the conversation. A manager did not intervene or apologize but it pretty much went with the theme of the night “A Terrible Experience”. I will not be recommending this restaurant to anyone and will be reaching out to the manager to express my complaints!
STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE
It's been a number of years since i had been to ON20. In fact it was under another name then. A wonderful and elegant restaurant. The view is spectacular of course but the whole experience was wonderful. Service was a little slow but i believe they had a wedding reception going on. It was so nice we didn't want to be rushed anyway. Highly commend.
Gracious wait staff, spectacular view from skyscraper location, tasty & elite cuisine. Presentation was gorgeous, as you might expect at this level of restaurant. Easy parking in the building's attached parking garage, with validation from the restaurant. Upscale and classy.
If money is no object, you could never get tired of eating here. If cost is a factor in your restaurant choice, then this is not an everyday option; but on20 would be an excellent place for birthdays, anniversaries, or other big celebrations. Would make a very special location for a wedding rehearsal dinner.
We went to ON20 during Restaurant Week. We loved everything put in front of us. We thought for sure that we would not be able to finish it all but somehow even the dessert plates wound up empty. This restaurant is definitely a step above; the ambiance is impressive. The staff alone were all friendly, professional and efficient. Make reservations well in advance for a special occasion.
We had been looking forward to trying this restaurant after hearing great reviews for a long time. We were very disappointed. The food was fair, did not come out hot, some would say very small portions. Service was friendly and good. You get a nice view of the city. We were told they had a new chef. I do not recommend.
When we made reservations online, there is an option special request and we did, we came here for our anniversary celebration we requested a table by the window, when we arrived the hostess sat us a table in middle of the room instead and stated first come first serve..????? Well if we’re walk ins we absolutely understand the policy 1 st come 1st serve but we’ve made reservation, we choose this restaurant because of their location ‘on 20’
and now we talking about the food, the stater menu is terrible the mushroom soup is just a clear soup with two pieces of some sorts of mushrooms swimming in it, the poached eggs, the oysters and caviar is yikes and over priced, I giving 2* because the. Wine selection is good and the service at the table was friendly, overall I would not come back here again or recommend to friends, very disappointed customer
This was our second visit to On20, and we ordered the Chef’s tasting menu with wine pairings. Amazing food and wine! Creatively prepared and presented. Each offering was exquisite! Favorite wine was the 2012 Riesling paired with cauliflower soup. We will be back!
This was our third visit to ON20. Mike, the maitre ‘d was gracious and friendly as has been our experience previously.
The food was lovely, but would suggest something to accompany the beef, such as small potato preparation. And a more expanded menu would be a plus.
But all in All it’s a lovely experience, fabulous view and a restaurant where you can actually carry in a conversation. Most places now cater to Millennials, with hard surfaces and small tables. So nice to dine at an “adult restaurant”
Delightful dinner at ON20. We were treating our friends and wanted to take them someplace special, ON20 certainly filled the bill. Excellent professional service, with maitre’d’s help in seating us at a table with a spectacular view that would accommodate a wheelchair. The food was terrific & we loved the new decor. Elegant, yet comfortable .
While the restaurant is very old school and classy, great views as well, extremely dissapointed in the food. My fiance and I have been wanting to go here for some time and everything was just bad, the appetizers, the main courses, and the deserts. Service wasnt the best either. Bill was around $250 and was the biggest robbery ever, awful stuff.
My fiancé proposed to me at this restaurant, it was absolutely beautiful, the service was amazing. Taylor was our waitress and actually knew exactly what my now fiancé was about to do, she kept it calm and friendly. I literally had no clue what was about to happen, afterwards she and another gentleman named Mike came in to congratulate us on our new engagement. They went above and beyond for us, we dinned in a private room with a view of downtown hartford, food was great and well prepared... overall one of the best nights of my life and most memorable, thanks to the staff and our waitress Taylor.
