Always an enjoyable time at Trumbull. Wonderful ambiance, attentive staff, and solid food. Also Thursdays are half priced wine bottles and the Max Cuvee is killer.

Outstanding service and food, Brianna was our server and the items she recommended were to die for. The atmosphere was pleasant.

We loved our server, but the food was only average (I had the Pad Thai, my wife had the cod). Lively atmosphere - better for drinks and a bite, than a nice dinner.

My friend and I went to TK before a show at the XL Center. We made a reservation on Open Table and were seated right away. Our server even asked before taking our orders if we had any time constraints due to her obvious knowledge that many would go to TK before a show. We had plenty of time with a 5pm reservation to make our 7pm show across the road. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and personable. We had delicious drinks, appetizers (the cheese plate was amazing!) and meals and shared the chocolate fondue dessert which was perfect!

My girlfriend and I don’t have much time to spend together and you’re Restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. It was nice that we were actually able to enjoy our night out but also be able to hear one another. The food was absolutely delicious although I feel the portions could’ve been A bit bigger per the price. Overall, we had a great time and will certainly be back soon

My family went there and we are fairly healthy eaters. We ordered three different entrees and they all had more going on with sauces and gravies than we would have liked. The menu really didn't offer much for clean and healthy items.

Unfortunately, the server was pleasant but not efficient. It took her a long time to get some of the things we ordered. I ordered a steak (medium) with polenta. My wife ordered and angus burger. What I got was indeed a steak but it was well done and the polenta seemed to have been microwaved at best. It was dry and tasteless. My wife’s burger was not very good either. Needless to say, for what we paid, it was not worth our time.

Amazing menu, great service, and delicious foods. My partner and I enjoyed sharing an appetizer, salad, and main course. All were fantastic. The restaurant knew we were sharing and they divided the courses and plated them separately without a request or extra charge. The wait staff was impeccable. The evening was enchanting.

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!
