My family and I (adults, group of 8) went there for dinner and to listen to some music. Neither disappointed. Only 2 of us had been there before, so it was new for the rest of us. We are foodies, so decided to try various apps - absolutely delish! (Pics attached.) The totsones rellenos (stuffed fried plantains) were delish -... More

Absolutely the WORST place to go in CT! The staff behind the bar is extremely rude, apathetic and very careless when following health rules! Handling money, then touching the insides of customers cups, handing out water bottles that are already opened and missing water, eating food behind the bar with their fingers then mixing drinks- just pathetic. Waited 15 minutes... More

The food at Casona is great, and the music that is brought there is truly Hartford's top notch musicians. however, the owner "Chris", a man who looks like he is from South Asian (Indian) descent, with glasses, is an absolute assho***. He was rude to some friends of mine and my musician friends tell me he underpays them, often just... More

Went to Casona (as it's now called) with friends and we absolutely loved the food. We each had a dish from a different country -- Colombia, Peru, and Argentina. Each dish was beautifully presented and the food delicious. The restaurant also serves authentic Puerto Rican food. I have only a small complaint -- the music was too loud. I do... More

WOW! Where do I start? Of all the things I'm just going to focus on one thing the bartenders. First of all, they're must underage and with no customer skills at all whatsoever. When you get to the bar area usually a friendly bartender approches you and offer what you like to drink. Right? NOT AT CASONA!!! The bartender usually... More

Casona has a happening and packed dance floor and bar on weekends. The restaurant, however, is terrible, The good: the food is edible and waitstaff are eager to please. Hmmmm, sorry, I can't think of anything else positive to say about this establishment. The bad: The floor is sticky: that's the first thing my friends and I first noticed about... More

My husband and I are very impressed with this dancing restaurant. The food is excellent. The manager and the staff are very friendly, courteous and helpful. The atmosphere in the back room for dancing is great. We love coming to this place.

I have never reviewed an establishment in my life but please be advised Do NOT come here!! The food took almost two hours only for the manager to tell me that, "they were having trouble with my pork because it was still frozen." They proceeded to substitute my meal with a fatty flank steak. We decided just to pay our... More

As a Colombian resident, I was generally impressed with the menu and flavor of the items. Although I have dined there over the years, the ownership has changed and so did the service. The bar scene is very popular expecially on Friday and "happy hours." Live music is exciting and some dancing when indicated, but bar can get crowded. I... More
