Spanish | New Haven, Connecticut

Went for Mother’s Day, they opened specially on Sunday for it. The restaurant was comfortably full, and the service was excellent from the start. They took our coats, sat us immediately, and we had a perfectly paced dinner from water to dessert. Everything was immaculately cooked, with perfect textures and interesting flavors. We skipped the Mother’s Day prix fix, and had the red snapper special and some pork dish I forget the name of. All the appetizers were exceptional and the presentation of our entrees was flawless. The wine list was interesting and had a nice range of prices, we got an incredible reserve red from 2012 for $62 - one of the best bottles I’ve had out ever. Only complaint is we felt the cuts of meat themselves were not exceptional, but they were only slightly below the standard set by everything else. More

Sat at the tall tables by the bar. Lovely spot. It took a few min to get server to come over and take our order, but then he got us out of there in time for play. Food was good-but strangely undercooked. Both salmon and pork were quite underdone. Food could have been really good. More

Even the busser was a woman! Nice to see so many women professionals so knowledgeable and skilled in their work. The server was excellent and knew the menu and wine list inside and out. Our party of 6 had an outstanding evening. Pastas are delicious. More

I already have recommended L'Orcio! I did not realize that Tuesday was pasta night! That was a great deal! The grilled octopus was delicious and it's presentation was grand! I couldn't believe that we spent three hours there! It was quiet so we talked and enjoyed each other's company. Our server was pleasant and unintrusive. We did not expect to have dessert, but the lemon ricotta cheesecake was to die for! I am already looking forward to returning in the nicer weather so we can sit outside! Thank you!! More

Mothers Day Brunch was lovely. The food choices were enough to please all 4 of us. And the food presentation was beautiful. More importantly the food was delicious. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Prices a bit high and that is the only thing that would prevent us from coming more often. But this was perfect for a special occasion More

Sherkaan is delicious! I went with a friend from India who liked the food, but said it was more of an Indian-fusion food rather than traditional Indian. I LOVED the smoked sweet potato samosas. They were delicious. The drinks are also very tasty as well. I will definitely be going back! More

Steakhouse | New Haven, Connecticut

We made reservations but the table wasn’t ready when we arrived. That was okay because there was space at the bar, which was lovely. Our table became ready but was in a terrible location, squashed by the door, next to the hostess station. We opted to stay at the bar. Service was attentive at the bar and the food was pretty good in terms of quality and portion size. I was a little annoyed that my scallop potatoes were not done well- very bland. The creamed spinach was really just whole leaf spinach floating in cream. Not properly done either- hence why the food was just “okay”. My husband got a pasta dish, which he really enjoyed. Fun, cool ambiance and right down the street from The Shubert for a great before show option. More

Friendly bistro style dining in New Haven. Excellent fish tacos and happy hour oysters. They were out of vegetarian tacos on a slow night which threw my vegan friend off step. Attentive service and nicely chilled Palm on tap. Im definitely coming back. 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
