First of all, coming in from the cheerless cold, the warm heated entry way and the glow from the long bar was very inviting and set us up in good anticipation for a good meal. We came for the prix fixe Restaurant Week dinner. And the food was tasty, although I will quibble a little: the smoked octopus salad was... More

And accommodating, professional, lovely staff. I love to go here to relax, either to enjoy friends, meet new and interesting people, or simply to drink a fabulous drink and enjoy the surroundings. The food is simple, well prepared, sourced locally or at least adventurously and ingeniously. I love the vibe here: diners of all ages, interests... the owners create a... More

It may no longer be 'new' but it's still good. if you try nothing else sit in in a cubby/booth and have a dr. no and the bone marrow if it's on the menu.

Visited with friends while in New Haven. This part of downtown seemed to be much more quiet, confirmed when we were at a near empty bar. Thought about a cheese plate and the truffle fries - fries mentioned by multiple bartenders, but opted for more eclectic food found down the street.

While visiting my daughter at Yale two years ago, she brought us to 116 Crown for a drink and to meet up with some friends. The drinks were inventive, crisp and good, but they also ordered french fries with truffle oil. Let me admit right now that I judge restaurants first by their choice and quality of their bread and...

From the minute we walked through the door we could hardly tell we were still in CT. This restaurant could easily be in NYC or some other metropolis. The drinks were nothing short of amazing and creative. The food was wonderful and perfect for a night out. This is my absolute favorite place. 5 stars! - and don't skip the... More

I have been here a few times with friends and have enjoyed each time tremendously. While the cocktails are expensive, they are very pretty, different, fresh, and yummy. I also like that they don't booze-bomb you so you can enjoy a few cocktails, instead of being tipsy off one. The homemade ricotta on the cheese plate is to-die-for! I could... More

Is this a cocktail bar with great food or a fine restaurant with exceptional drinks? Actually it's both with a slight lean towards the great cocktails. If you are looking for a well made cocktail and food that makes it proud, go to 116 Crown. Relaxed vibe with a sophisticated crowd. Smart bartenders with a real passion for mixology. Classic...

The first thing that will catch your eye upon entering 116 Crown is the bar. Perfectly set up so that you and your friends or acquaintances you meet can hang out either right after work or late into the night. Wide, wide array of drink selections prepared by excellent mixologists.. There is some limited food service. Pizzas are a staple.... More
