I have been to City Hall many times. The food is good, but unfortunately, the service is friendly but inconsistent. The last time I was there with five friends. Four got served and were nearly done eating before the last two were served. No amount...More

I had dinner with a good friend and members of the family before heading to the Palace Theater. I loved the atmosphere and the food. Truly a gem for downtown Waterbury.

Being from Texas, I have a certain expectation when it comes to my steak. When traveling, I often shy away from the steaks because they usually just don't measure up. Tonight the Surf and Turf at the City Hall Cafe was well worth the gamble.

Being from Maryland, I don't know why I took a chance on the Crabcakes, but I've learned my lesson because they were not just bad, they were awful. First, I've never seen a Crabcake that was the color, size and thickness of a sausage patty....More
