Three of us had dinner twice at John Davenport’s in December 2016. The food, the people, the place, and the view: all excellent! We had great meals and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The servers were friendly, caring, and professional. Thanks to everyone.

We just had a lovely family "reunion" at the Davenport Restaurant that we chose because of its great views of Yale and New Haven. Unfortunately the views were obscured slightly by the snow falling, but the energy at the restaurant was not. The staff and manager took very good care of our party as we continued to grow in numbers... More

The service was inattentive and bordered on rude. The food was uninspired. The view was nice. We will never return, especially because there are so many other fine restaurants in New Haven.

We wanted a place to take our elderly parents for a special Christmas lunch - this was the perfect venue! From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. We live in another state, so I went to Trip Advisor first, then the restaurants website which is comprehensive and detailed. We appreciated the inside parking with voucher. Easy access to... More

This restaurant has a great menu and wonderful service! The views are stunning! It is located on the top floor of the Omni Hotel, and it offers great views of downtown New Haven. Breakfast and dinner are best and have great options. The restaurant week was a great value, even though the dessert was not good! Their soup, particularly truffled... More

Thank you for your compliments on our food and service. I am sorry the dessert option during restaurant week did not live up to expectations and we will work to correct that error. Glad you enjoyed the parsnip bisque with a touch of truffle, a very popular menu choice when featured, and hope we can be of service again soon.... More

We ate at John Davenport's last night for our anniversary dinner. We were blown away by the service- the table had rose petals scattered on it and a rose my wife. The service was excellent as well. Our server, Ryan was very accommodating and offered us chocolate covered strawberries as a complimentary dessert. The dinner was also delicious- with fairly... More

Basic hotel restaurant is a basic hotel. Service is pretty good, but if you want a distinctive breakfast, try Heirloom down the street or even Claire's across the street

Thank you Tracey for your compliment on service. I apologize that our brunch did not meet your expectations. We strive to differentiate our breakfast and brunch from other hotels by incorporating many house-made jams, butters and spreads and use locally sourced products. All our eggs are cage-free and meats hormone free and our buffet features a dedicated gluten free station... More
