We've driven by J. Christians countless times and never stopped in until we met friends for dinner and they suggested it. This is an old bank and it was really nice inside... different. Our server was very good and the appetizers and dinners were excellent....More

Visited Wallingford several times in the last year on business. Every time in town, we eat at J Christians. Food is wonderful, décor is nice being an old bank. Service is wonderful. Deserts are the best.

Nice restaurant - good look and feel - extensive food selection - good service should be a place to visit frequently, but ... worst thing ... got my credit card charged twice

Great appetizers! You must try the short rib tacos with mashed potatoes, just amazing! The brussel sprouts we're great too. Very good service and a cool building! Just go!

Good food. Courteous service. Interesting facility. Bank conversion very rare. Nice! Duck entree a bit fatty. Duck-fried rice was very good.

A lot of choice for a good diner. As part of a company visit in Cromwell I went together with my business relations and enjoyed the atmosphere of a former bank building.

Very nice atmosphere. Staff and owner were very friendly. Menu was a bit limited but good choices. Only downside was they ran out of bread. Will be back to try other items and hopefully try some bread.
