As always, AMAZING food ! This is the best steak house in the entire state of CT. If you love a great Steakhouse and love Italian food that is off the charts great, you will want to go to Tony's at J House. Tony, the owner is the nicest guy, you will find it hard to find anyone who knows more trivia than Tony. He is always welcoming and makes you feel like your at home.
We love this restaurant, Easter Dinner was Amazing.

I loved the decor and atmosphere. The service was good and we got our food fast. I give only 3 stars to this restaurant because for the price I expected every meal to be delicious. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Appetizers were dry and not very flavorful, ( octopus + dumplings) My fillet mignon was good and my husband's lamb was good too. So I would recommend this place for steak.

I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant for a little while and finally decided to last night. It was extremely crowded and therefore very loud (I know the restrictions on capacity have been lifted, but I thought the 6ft rule was still in place?!) the area that is enclosed in glass is beautiful. Our waiter was not very attentive, we sat there for about 20 minutes after we finished our first round of drinks before being asked if we wanted another (again, I understand it was busy, but I had to flag him down to get a second round. Had to do the same thing for a steak knife and the check). My husband got the long bone steak and said it was very salty (this coming from someone who likes salt) and I had the sea bass which I did not enjoy (I did not like how it was prepared, but this is just a personal preference and I should have read the description better). Overall for the price, I was expecting more attentive service (letting us know what cheeses and meats were on the charcuterie board instead of just leaving it on the table, a steak knife for my husband, offering a second round and not constantly being told “I’ll be right back” by the waiter so that he could go help another table instead of taking our order.)

We so wanted to enjoy our time there as we had heard good reviews. They were busy and way understaffed. Our first drinks took a very long time to come. My fish was completely raw. The mac and cheese was not Mac and cheese. Granted it had the lobster in it but the pasta itself was not good. The owner Tony came around to all the tables and was oozing with confidence. I wish he had spent his time helping out the overwhelmed staff and served some tables and poured some drinks instead! It was an incredibly expensive meal for what it was. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very good. It has a great vibe. It’s just a shame that the experience didn’t live up to expectations. Maybe it was just an off night. I hope so a sad it has such great potential.

The sushi was very good. We ate a very modest meal. No wine, some bottled water. It is always a pleasure to see Tony. I can’t wait till it turns back into the Rockin’ place it is before COVID.

The restaurant ambiance is very energetic and pleasant. Drinks were very good, we had one called Fuego. Food very delicious but a little over priced we thought. Our server was very nice but altogether the service was ok. Our main course took a very long time (45m) to come out and the waiters response to it was he thought we were still working on the appetizers, however, we were never asked if we were done. At the time to pay nothing was comp for the wait. Overall the place is very pretty for a fancy diner with friends or a loved one.

Met some girlfriends for lunch who came from in the city. At on the terrace on a gorgeous day so the roof was open. Food was good, company was great - could not ask for more. Did miss Tony asking trivia questions though.

It was super fun. The only slight issue was it was a little too noisy, albeit with great tunes. Our table was by the speaker and I felt like we were all lip reading! We’d still definitely come back though! Great vibe!

The veal chop was amazing!!! Cannot wait to return! We had a great corner booth. Unfortunately a large party was seated nearby who were celebrating a birthday. They were loud but I get it- it’s nice to celebrate after being under lockdown for the past year.
