Trumbull Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Food was very good - the Thai cauliflower was the stuff dreams are made of. But, what will bring me back is the customer service. Our burger was a bit under done and both the waitress and manager immediately offered us different options. Made the experience a positive one - happy to patronize such a customer focused business!
Was referred to Trumbull Kitchen from a local who sat next to me on the plane ride to Hartford. Absolutely lived up to the billing. Food was great and included a wide variety of options (the spice tuna roll was amazing!) that could be shared or individualized. Service was even better. Made some good recommendations and ensured we enjoyed our dining experience. Would recommend for lunch and dinner any day of the week!
TK is a favorite of our office staff as it is close to our workplace. Tonight was moderately to lighter than normal crowd. We had a business dinner and they seated us at a table closest to the door and hostess station.
I️ was parking the car so arrived after our guests were seated. The restaurant was fairly empty in the back and in other locations. I️ would think logically those tables should be the last seated if no other are available. I️ was disappointed for our guests with the cold air coming in the door and the noise and traffic by the table. Give consideration to guests that are out for an enjoyable evening and don’t expect to be seated like an inexpensive chain restaurant. Frustrating!
Came here prior to a UConn game. Was seated quickly food came fast but food was just OK. It was only a burger but it had an overwhelming smoky grill taste and could not taste anything else. There was cheese and veggies on it, but couldn't taste them. My dining companion said the same thing. Not sure I'll be back - a bit pricy for a burger that we didn't enjoy.
I've been going to "Trumble Kitchen" for quite some time now and every visit has been special. The ambiance, food, and service has always been outstanding. It's great as a starter or closer for any evening. I enjoy it so much in fact, that I am a MAX VANTAGE card member. And seeing that they have so many other venues that "tickle my fancy", there's never any shortage of great places to dine out. Whenever someone ask me for any recommendations for a nice spot in the Hartford area to tantalize my pallet and satisfy my insides, Trumble Kitchen always comes first in mind.
A friend and I had dinner at Trunbull Kitchen before seeing a show at Hartford Stage on a Thursday evening. We each had the pea soup and pork loin entree. Both were excellent. The service was quick and attentive. We were not rushed at all and made it to the theatre with time to spare. It was an excellent dining experience.
As frequent visitors to Hartford's downtown tomb (weekend nights...), we were nervous to veer from our neighborhood favorite, Max's Downtown. Trumbull Kitchen came highly recommended, so we ventured in, only to find...a Max's-like ambiance with a more seafood-oriented menu! We felt healthy and satisfied with our Hartford fix. A gem well worth exploring, just as downtown Hartford is a gem well worth saving!
Usually this restaurant is awesome. But on this night, they had large parties with children who were noisy and unruly. There was nowhere to sit us that was not adjacent to noisy children. Food was great, but staff was off (didn't get bread until entrees came out) and could not enjoy eating with all the distractions. Definitely an off night.
We went before a big concert at the xl center. Our reservations were for 6:15 and they turned people away but kept a table open for us. They were incredibly busy but got us in and out quickly so we could make the concert. The sangria was delicious, not too sweet and the burger was the best I've had in years. Service was friendly and efficient, we could not have been happier. Will be going again before any event in downtown Hartford.
Late to the game, but so glad we came. Hobbit Juice on tap. Shrimp and sweet potato fritters were insanely good. Stone pie with butternut squash, chick peas--so glad I didn't get pepperoni. Brother inhaled the pork shank. Great staff, environment, food and diverse selections. Will definitely be back for the Gluten-free options for my daughter.
Awesome night out !! Food was great and the value was even better ! We sat at bar waiting for our reservation and the bartender was so sweet , patient , and accommodating !! Then our waitress was hilarious !! Food was delicious and everything came out quickly and correctly !! It was the perfect balance of being efficient without feeling rushed !! Highly recommend it !!
Arrived 2 hrs before an 8 pm show and notified the waiter. Two of 4 meals were over cooked; 25 minutes prior to show time table had not been cleared for desert. Meals were appropriately comped by management but waitstaff clearly is overloaded. We’ve eaten here many times in the past and always were pleased.
Found Trumbull via TripAdvisor and based on the rating and reviews and preview of the menu opted to try. Overall this was a very good choice. Noise level is very loud, if you want a quiet intimate dinner this is not the place as you have to lean in and raise your voice to be heard over the din. Service was slower than expected given the ratings both from our server and from the kitchen. Bar drinks particularly slow and were not the least bit distinct for being a classic cocktail that every bartender should have down pat. Thankfully we were not in a hurry so could afford to sit and wait.
Food was for the most part excellent, get the duck as your starter, it is that good. Opt for the bread service with cream cheese spread as it is outstanding. Meal was very good but had some room for improvement as there was a bit of a fall off of flavors. Was it worth the trip? Yes and would eat here again and recommend it as a place downtown for dinner.
Have been coming here for 10 years. This was the WORST service in that time span. It was my husbands birthday too! I have had more attentive service at chick fil et. Took fooooooooorever for drinks or drinks that never came at all. Won't be going back.
Also, everything has dairy in it. No choices for a person with dairy allergies. Menu has not changed in years. Same old same old.
Eclectic menu, food was very good.
Service was a bit odd though -- we informed both the hostess and our waitress that we had theater reservations and needed to be out by 7:30, and both agreed that it was not issue.
But our dinner was very slow to arrive, even waiting more than 5 minutes for a missing entree for one of our guests. And then we couldn't get our server's attention to get the check.
At 7:40 we finally all stood up and started putting on our coats, when the server rushed over. We arrived at the theater just in time for the curtain.
An unfortunate ending to a great meal, but otherwise Trumbull Kitchen is a wonderful restaurant.
I took my wife there for our anniversary. She loved the food and atmosphere. The waitress even told my wife Happy Anniversary which surprised her and she liked it. They also gave us a nice seat. i'm not sure if it was because they knew it was our anniversary but we definitely did not feel crowded (It was packed the night we went). We will be back.
TK has a fairly modern feel and is part of the Max restaurant chains in the Hartford area. The food was very good. We had dumplings for an appetizer. I had the flounder special and my girlfriend had salmon over a pea puree. Both were excellent. The service was pretty slow to the point we had to ask the waitress when we could expect the food. The manager came over and apologized. The app came out shortly thereafter followed immediately by the entrees (per our request as we had a show to attend). The upside is they comped us the appetizer in consideration of the long delay
Trumball Kitchen was a very nice dining experience. The wait staff was pleasant and helpful. The food was god and I enjoyed the variety on the menu. We had a table for two and the ambiance was nice and was neither too loud or too sedate. I'd definitely go again
Service as always was top notch: waitress was friendly, efficient and made dining a pleasure. We enjoyed sitting outside on the sidewalk terrace on a late summer evening, lots of people watching , very relaxed. Food was delicious: haddock in a light sauce; spicy Pad Thai with shrimp. Grilled octopus for appetizer was tasty (just a bit tougher / chewier than it could have been.) And for being a Max Card member, I was offered my entree for free for my birthday! Great experience, we'll be back!
