“Nice view of the city”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

This was a nice restaurant, with a good view of the city. The food and service was good. It's a nice quiet spot if you want to stay away from the ubiquitous tvs and loud noise.

“Top of the Omni”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Excellent quality food and preparation. Most tables are in front of large windows with great view over Yale campus. A bit drafty in cold weather due to the large windows. Could use a facelift to brighten it up, but don't stay away on that account. Pricing is moderate to high, but level with other upper end places in town. Service attentive. Two adults no starters, no dessert or coffee, two entrees, two glasses of good wine, t&t, total $100.

The best brunch menu in New Haven is at JD's. The views are spectacular and the service is friendly.

“1Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

Went to the bar for a girls' weekend and ordered some wings and a cheese plate. The two women I was with had never had a cheese plate before and were converted within minutes! The food was delicious (which made up for the only so-so service) and we enjoyed our time there.
