I was in Hartford for business and in a burst of flattery — which I totally did not expect or deserve — my generous hosts treated me to an extraordinarily special lunch at the On 20 Restaurant at 1 State Street, in Hartford. But before I tell you about lunch, you must know this is NOT the easiest restaurant to find.... More

Great experience ! The view is so romantic and beautiful. The bartender is a true mixologist, I recommend trying the apple jacker! The owner (I think) is hysterical and very attentive. Unfortunately the food did not match the experience. The appetizer with egg and pasta was cold and the entree lobster was also cold.

We came to Hartford to see a show at the Bushnell Theatre. So we picked ON20 on Tripadvisor based on the reviews. Wonderful experience. We had the ribeye and the fish; both were excellent. We took our time, enjoyed our meal and the wine while looking out over Hartford at night. Service was exeptional and friendly. You have to enter... More

Sheepishly have to admit I didn't expect this in Hartford. the room is spacious, the view spectacular, the service attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable, and, oy, the food! perfectly prepared, novel menu. although it is in an office building, it's definitely a special occasion restaurant at dinner. my guess is that lunch is more business-like.

We had a a 6p reserv this evening and are staying at the Hartford Marriott Downtown, 200 Columbus. On20 is at 400 Columbus. After walking three blocks in the right direction and still not finding it, called On20 four times, last at 6:15p, but no answer. Only recorded messages. Called our hotel concierge who said restaurant isn't actually on Columbus.... More

Great view of sleepy downtown Hartford. Not a ton of great places to eat in Hartford but On20 (on the 20th Floor) was as good as any. Food was very good and service for our dinner group was excellent.

The most unknown happy hour is at this premiere Hartford restaurant. Recently remodeled to more accurately represent its unique location and views, it is truly splendid! Muted colors, colored ceilings and luxurious seating bring a needed update. Happy hour requires no reservations(indeed it's usually very quiet). Antonio handles the bar well, offering excellent varied cocktails and a nice wine selection.... More

My fiancé planned a birthday dinner for me at On 20....it was terrible! Awkward atmosphere, my food came out cold and it had to be sent back. Nothing was done as a courtesy for my cold meal either! When the bill came we realized that there is a 20% service charge for front end staff, elevator use etc... We were... More

This was a totally unexpected and delightful experience. Located on the 20th floor of the Hartford Steam Boiler building, this restaurant boasts a view of Hartford, CT that is stunning! I was seated at a small table along the windows overlooking the CT River and watched the sunset. The dining room is classically appointed, the service elegant and the food... More
