J Restaurant | Bar
The changing seasons can't stop us from dining outdoors! Ring in the holiday season in one of our heated, roofless tents; heated gazebos; or in our heated boxcar- you'll feel like you're dining in Paris! Or grab your blanket and sit out by one of our Christmas trees, street lamps, and fire pits. At J, the cold never bothered us anyway!

J's has the magic of comfortably heating outside seating even at 30 degrees!!!
Amazing!!! Great atmosphere and food! Staff was wonderful and attentive
The J never disappoints. Highly recommend the restaurant for the food, drinks and service.
Great food, service, and drinks, as usual! Consistently great!
The staff was awesome! Very attentive.
The food and drinks were superb. Definitely recommended!
We sat outside with heaters on a beautiful fall evening. The service and food were excellent.
Our waitress had a wonderful personality! It made dining at J so much fun!!
We had our own gazebo outside, covered, warm from the heat they pipe in. Excellent and friendly staff! Great food as always.
Fabulous outdoor dining experience. Delicious food, toasty warm gazebo, delightful ambiance, friendly servers. We'll be back soon.
There was a very loud large party near us for much of our meal. We should’ve asked to be seated elsewhere. Our server was fantastic! We felt that while the meal was good, it was overpriced.
They’ve done amazing job creating outdoor heated seating with good ambience. Multiple heaters and fire pits. Same reasonable and broad menu with terrific service.
We started with the cheesy garlic bread and it was delicious. I ordered the stuffed eggplant. It could have used more sauce. I little too dry. My husband ordered the veal chop special. The waitress said the chef likes to prepare it medium rare, is that ok? My husband said yes, but when it came to the table it was more like medium well. Potatoes had no seasoning at all, very bland and undercooked. I will give them another try. The services was very good!
The caprese sandwich is phenomenal. Already planning my next visit to have this sandwich again! Our server was so kind and attentive. Will definitely be returning soon!
The staff was excellent..the food is a little pricey but good size portions and very delicious!! Will go again
Dinner was delicious and our server was very attentive.
Super outdoor dining, the best we've been to yet. It was 60 degrees out and the heaters kept us plenty comfortable. Food was as always exceptional, that's why we keep going back.
Waiter was excellent , Food was delicious .parking was the only issue
Wonderful service and delicious dinner once again at J Restaurant. They never disappoint. :)
It was a very busy Sat night! Wine choice was out! One dinner received was wrong order. Because we had a show at Hartford Stage to make on time, we did not fuss or mention error and food was eaten. Not a great first experience but will give benefit of doubt and try again at another time!
What a great outdoor space! Great atmosphere, great service, and great food. One of our favorite places.
Love that they take reservations for outside tables! This was our first time and we’re happy we tried it! The was was wonderful and so tasty! The outdoor atmosphere was awesome and well done, lots of fire pits and patio heaters all over. We look forward to coming back over the winter they say the floor is heated, Glad we gave it a try!
Great food, excellent service! Beautiful outdoor seating!
Loved the outdoor seating.
I had the veal saltimboca and it was just ok. My partner had a salad with salmon which was good. I heard a server offer lamb chops as a special to another table after we had placed our order. I wish we had been offered that option. Overall a good experience just not really good. I will give it another try sometime.
Never had a bad experience. Food, service and drinks top notch!
Food was great , but missing many classics, like wings and calamari- have not been here since 2014/2015 - really missed those appetizers.
Such a lovely place. Super friendly staff. My friend was really cold when we first got to the patio. They lit up both fire pits around us. The food was delicious, good size quantity and lovely displayed. Oh, there is also a friendly cat 🐈 visiting a few tables and ended up in a bed right bedside me.
We keep returning because we know the food will be excellent, the outdoor dining is second to none, the staff is attentive and we always leave saying "everything was excellent" and yes we'll be back!
Wonderful outdoor dining with fabulous food and staff! The new outdoor bar is amazing!
Perfect. And quiet which made it perfect
J's is our favorite restaurant, period!
You must see the new outdoor bar area! Food was delicious as always with great new special!
Love their food and hospitality! Always the best. Their patio with fire tables is terrific for a fall night.
Wonderful service and nice place all around! Always enjoy it there, both lunch and dinner.
Went for dinner before a concert at The Webster. It was awesome and just down the street! While the regular menu offers a variety of options and price points, the specials were too good not to try. We had the mussels appetizer which was a delight with a robust sauce that had red onions, capers, and tomatoes with crusty bread absorbing the goodness. Yum! Then we had the hot lobster roll special with a bright, fresh coleslaw and crispy french fries. (Spend a couple dollars extra for the truffle fries, they will not disappoint! They were super tasty and I fell in love.) Our app and entrée were so good we just had to try dessert too. We both had the cannoli which had this light creamy anisette flavored filling- mmmm, just perfect! I would recommend this restaurant. We sat outside and had the best time in a really comfortable atmosphere. I can’t wait to go back!
Menu had plenty to choose from. Waitress very personable. Many choices for outside dining.
Loved the patio with the shade trees along the street. The cocktails were fantastic(one of the best cosmos I’ve ever had..)
The appetizer the bruschetta was amazing . The fried clams tasted good . Mousse for dessert— Yum.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how excellent our waitress was. She was so personable and made our dinner memorable. We will definitely go again
The restaurant is crazy not to reopen their bar later than 9. I am certain Trinity college students would see this as their neighborhood gem! Thank you for a wonderful experience
We'd been away for a while, and we're jonesing to go back. J's never disappoints! Another delicious meal with fantastic ambiance and excellent service. Always our favorite!
Excellent -- rainy day so was hoping to be outside, but they nicely put us in a side room - less noise - for party of 10.
Francis was excellent -- prompt, attentive and food/drinks came promptly.
a bit pricey for lunch, however, the food was outstanding, the atmosphere so relaxing, the service was on point. will definitely go back!!
