Nice place to go for casual food and drinks. The steak I had was very good but for the price it should be. The ladies with me felt their entrees were just ok and over priced... the appetizers were good so back to good for casual food.

We come here often and are never disappointed ! I appreciate the fact that they offer a light fare for dinner and some dinners are half portion ,

J. Christian's has been one of our favorite restaurants, but our last few visits over the last year have been less than stellar. The Mahi Mahi fish special they had was fabulous, but when they took that off the menu, I tried the short ribs. After finding big lump of fat in the meat, that put me off of that... More

Though you can enjoy a great meal at J. Christians restaurant, this time we had drinks and bar food in the bar room. Bar tender extra friendly. Reasonably priced wine and good tapas type food. You occasionally get a glimpse of a celebrity visiting a child at nearby Choate Rosemary Hall prep school. Nice relaxed yet classy ambiance.

We dined with our family at J. Christian's last night. We found the portions to be ample and the food was delicious. The quality of the food served was above average.

Attended a business dinner J Christina's. 14 people were seated and served efficiently and with minimal delay. Service was excellent throughout the meal. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Recommend reservations.

We went here last weekend for dinner. The service was just okay . Food order was not done properly. Server said would remove a drink. He did not. I ordered shrimp and cheese grits. Shrimp dry bland and overcooked. Grits had no flavor. Was disappointed. Other members of my party had steaks and said they were great.

Interesting menu- food was tasty but I wish dishes came with a side other than grits. It was good though.

In town for meetings. This is the second time I've been to J. Christian's and haven't been disappointed yet. Our server, John, was knowledgeable and attentive. The food was excellent. Look forward to a return visit next time we're in Wallingford.
