Italian | New Haven, Connecticut

The four of us were lucky enough to get a lovely corner table nestled under a grape arbor, so the setting was perfect. The appetizers set the stage - all were delicious. The main courses were also quite good, and I noticed not one of us had anything left on our plates. And we each had a dessert. While all were terrific, I think the lemon cheesecake was the winner. One of our party had never been to L'Orcio before, but said he would be back soon and often. More

Indian | New Haven, Connecticut

I've visited Sherkaan twice; once for dinner, and once for lunch. Both times the food and service were excellent. The portions are generous; I find that a dosa, salad, and chat is enough food for two people to share (if both people are drinking lassis). As someone with celiac disease, I appreciated the fact that everything labeled "gluten free" on the menu was celiac-friendly: no cross-contamination. As someone who loves food, I also appreciated that everything I ordered was delicious! More

A very delightful choice in perfect Yale campus location close to museums, concerts, theater. Simple, clean, white yet sophisticated European bistro atmosphere. Food really excellent even for usual simple things. My beet salad had crunchy almonds and sweet oranges well balanced, The fragrant mussels were the hard to find big meaty ones not the typical tiny not worth it ones, the octopus portion relative to the potatoes and veggies was very small but absolutely deliciously prepared. Oysters a great deal at happy hour. Husband said his mixed drink cocktail was perfect. Knowledgeable French owner Thami. More

We had not been to Red Lobster for quite a while and met friends for dinner. Our meal was delicious and service was good. However, the table next to us had two parents who were inconsiderate to diners around them letting their two children scream at games they were playing on their Ipods. Perhaps a section should be reserved for parents with children so as not to disturb adults who want to share a meal and converse with friends. More

Not only was booking the reservation incredibly easy for a first time OpenTable user, but the dining experience was highly enjoyable too. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the restaurant offers a complimentary appetizer for anyone who books a reservation. Service was very quick and helpful, while food was great. Chicken Orzo soup in particular was outstanding! Spanakopita appetizer was delicious, but portion was a little small - even for two people to share. Overall, both entrees were great and I would definitely go back soon! More

Barbecue | New Haven, Connecticut

My family and I went there to have BBQ, it was okay a bit loud. The servers were nice, The drinks were good but the food was borderline... the Mac & cheese noodle was hard and under cooked for my one year to eat. I ordered the brisket tacos which was burnt not tender or flavorful. (I’ve had bbq from Tennessee and shouldn’t compare but we were expecting much more) the baked beans were good and my husband did enjoy the shrimp tacos. A lot! We talked about giving it another try, maybe going without the kiddos in hopes for a better outcome the second time around. 🤞🤞🤞 More

Contemporary Italian | New Haven, Connecticut

My family and I celebrated my sister's birthday at O&O and we couldn't be more impressed! First of all, our gentleman server (whose name we didn't catch unfortunately 😭) was outstanding!! Then there's the menu: what a complete stunner. Well-designed and takes you back in time. The cocktails were made to perfection - we have the Olive it Dirty & the Aperol. 🍸 My sister is a pescatarian and our server was very accommodating. We ordered the Little Neck clams (w/o sausage) which was a magical, salty dream. All four of us ordered homemade pasta dishes - spaghetti pomodoro, ricotta cavatelli, and gnocchi. I typically don't order pasta out, but I'll never turn down an opportunity for homemade pasta. There's nothing like it, people. Delicious!! P.S. - the Old School meatballs were divine. My sister misread the gnocchi ingredients (it comes with pancetta) and our server was great about swapping out her dish as soon as possible. Overall, we had an exceptional experience, with a server who perfectly attentive, and the atmosphere was lively and beautiful to boot. We'll be back, for sure! More

Mexican | New Haven, Connecticut

Although the menu has some of the usual Mexican fare, the entree specials are very authentic. Reasonably priced except for a kind of expensive Mojito but it was so good. Loved the guacamole and the house made chips were fantastic and not salty. The pork stew was really spicy but the meat was perfectly cooked. the accompanying rice and beans were so flavorful. Chilles Rellenos were delicious and perfectly seasoned. The service couldn't have been nicer. The young man who waited on us was clearly proud of the food he was serving, which is rare these days. He was attentive without being obsequious. Can't wait to go back, a lot on the menu I want to try. More

Café | New Haven, Connecticut

The Mory's Association is a college restaurant right across from Yale University that was founded in 1849 and is housed in a clubhouse nearly 200 years old. Don't be fooled though; just because it's right across from a college campus, that doesn't mean it sways from some of the fine-dining traditions it has held up to over the years.

As a private club, The Mory's Association delivers a tranquil experience for patrons while they eat comfort food like the down-home chicken dinner, a classic burger or enjoy some exotic delights like fettuccini Bolognese or rigatoni rustico. At The Mory's Association, a peaceful atmosphere and comfort comes first for its members.
