We stopped for dinner here on our way through. The place was hopping, even late on a Saturday night, but we were seated immediately. Unfortunately our waiter was less than stellar. We waited for at least five minutes before he showed up and when he...More

I gave it a three because I have been multiple times and really am not inspired to return. Don't get me wrong, the food, sushi and drink are the best you will find in the area. If that's what you want you won't be disappointed....More

Quiet, clean location with free parking nearby; very efficient staff and delicious lunch. The antiques and furniture arrangement was exceptional, and the event space for live music was very comfortable. This would be a lovely place for a bridal shower or family reunion.

I have never liked 85 Main. It's too pretentious in its atmosphere and in the service. Service is slow and the food is overpriced for what you get. I went a few times and never really liked it.

I’ve never asked this kind of user ion anywhere - however- the staff will adapt any item on the menu for you. They were very accommodating. I would also suggest calling ahead. Sorry i couldn’t provide more details.

Chef and General Manager James Martin, along with brothers Barry and Brian Jessurun of The Vanilla Bean Café in Pomfret and Dog Lane Café in Storrs, opened 85 main in 2005. 85 main was created with goal of offering fresh, quality seafood and steaks along with locally grown produce in an atmosphere one might expect to find in a "big" city. The emphasis is on fresh ingredients and cooked-to-order menu items. The interior of the building was completely remodeled, creating a warm, inviting and casual dining environment. During the warmer months, the outdoor patio is open for dining.
