At the risk of sounding like a travel snob, hotel based restaurants are not usually my first choice. But the menu, price, service and quality were outstanding and what a nice "commute" back to the room! Our server said locals make the trip just eat at Octagon.

I was here for some drinks after work with a few co-workers. The bartenders are awesome here. They are so attentive to their patrons. I ended up getting a snack before dinner and had the lobster bisque at that time. It was PURE yum. I hated when restaurants serve lobster bisque and the lobster meat is all ground up or... More

Wonderful restaurant in all respects!! A tad pricey, but you really get what you pay for. Courteous staff. Timely meal service. Had their salmon dinner from the regular menu. Wonderful. Grilled vegetables were extremely tasty. Looking forward to returning. The small room off the main dinning room provided a quiet private dinning area for our party of thirteen.

Located inside the Mystic Marriott in Groton Connecticut, this in house diner is suited to meet the needs of any traveling patron. For those with a more refined palate, their steaks feature top quality Kobe beef and fillets that will melt in your mouth. The heavy selection of appetizers, salads and starters will have you mooing out of there if... More

This restaurant is located inside the Marriott Hotel & Spa. We ate here three times over the weekend. Why did we eat here 3 times when the service was terrible??? We were at the hotel for a 3-day event and this is the only restaurant at the hotel. There is a Starbucks for quick service food items. The first meal... More

A private b-day party in the "smoke room" was incredibly wonderful! Smoke room is NOT a smoking atmosphere but a non-see-through smoky glass. We were a party of 13 with appetizers, beverages and a choice of pre-fixe menu options. All entrees were delicious. The birthday cake was not from The Octagon but our efficient and very friendly server, Erin, brought... More

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at this restaurant during our recent visit to Mystic. The wait staff were just terrific and took wonderful care of us. I especially enjoyed the French Onion Soup, it was one of the best I've had. My steak was also wonderful. I would definitely come back here again.

I have eaten here a number of times during my stay at the Marriott. The food is good. It can get very crowded, particularly if the hotel is busy. Staff is attentive. Breakfast buffet is very good - lots of choices!!!

Went for late dinner on Saturday night. Sat in the bar area. Service was a bit slow, bartender responsible for high tops and seemed to get pre occupied with the people sitting at the bar. Unfortunately it meant list of wait time. Olive pirate not worth it. You'll get five cubes of cheese, two rolls and a few olives. Presentation... More
