"As all of you know, an octagon is an 8-sided image (like a Stop sign). But unlike a Stop sign, everyone should GO to The Octagon, located in the Marriott Mystic. The top 8 reasons to go are: (1) the steaks are fabulous, (2) the wait staff are terrific, in particular if you are local like my wife and me - we knew everone on staff, (3) the wine selection is comprehensive and affordable, (4) the sides are delicious and worthy of sharing at your table, just not with other tables (that would be weird), (5) the location is easy to find, just off I-95 exit 88, and you can see the Marriott from the highway, (6) you can fill up on steaks, sides, and dessert and waddle off to a room right in the hotel, (7) plenty of parking and it's free, and (8) did I mention how great the steaks are? You may lay out a tad more cash than one would at a run-of-the-mill steakhouse (e.g., Outback) but it is definitely worth it. You and your significant other will not be disappointed."

"My husband and I live very close and have stopped in for happy hour, but finally had a meal here. While it was quite pricy, it was worth it for the quantity and quality of the food we received. He had the swordfish and I had the prime rib (Friday special). Fantastic!"

"We typically make the Octagon our 'go to' for special occasions. This time was a bit of a disappointment. My dining companion's steak was perfect, but the mushroom risotto was gloopy, although the scallops were done properly. We ordered the special dessert, maple crème brulee, and the cream part was melted (and really like cream) and the sugar topping was one bendable piece. As soon as we sent it back, they took it off the check without asking, and the manager came to apologize, so that was a good thing."

"We dined out on Christmas night--a first for us. Wait staff was attentive & cordial. We ordered beef - a filet mignon & prime rib, a special that evening. Both were prepared perfectly to request & were extremely tender & juicy. Didn't need the sauces served on the side as the flavors were delicious! Have previously dined in their private room that seated 12-18 -- all food was served hot & extremely tasty. Must dine here for the beef!
Will return!

"Disappointed in the lobster bisque, but more disappointed in the female server that told me they normally put chunks of lobster in it, but not tonight. She then told me she would bring me some chunks of lobster, but never returned to our table. That particular individual wasn't our server, but I am disappointed with her for forgetting about us. Overall, not the worst restaurant I've eaten at, but I would NEVER return"

"We summer every year in this area and typical stay around the smaller, local places. Never really had a good steak until we decided to come to Octagon at the end of our summer. Food and service was excellent although the ambience was a little weird. Felt more like a hotel lobby then a high-end steakhouse but everything else made up for this little distraction."

"This is the place for steak in CT. Period. They have this down to an art. You have to try the Fried Oysters! Salads are almost too gorgeous to eat. Really great wine list, not too uppity. But the service and staff make this a great place to come."

"Choose the restaurant because it seemed to show it on the water in Groton. There's water but it's across the street and not the ocean or accessible and this is a Mariott Hotel restaurant which I wouldn't have gone to.
The steak was good which you can find anywhere, but at $40 average, certainly not worth the prices when you factor in sides like a baked potato or vegetables are $6 each. Now you're over $50.

"The staff were wonderful; food was great, & children who were at other tables were very well behaved. We truly enjoyed our dinner and our waitress unexpectedly paid for our dessert! It is a higher end restaurant but worth it!!!"

"We started in the restaurant but left before ordering in order to sit at the bar. The seating in the restaurant was horrible for couples looking for a romantic meal, you couldn't sit "kiddie corner" to each other at ANY table. However, we had a great time at a high top table in the bar with a great server and a surprisingly much better ambiance despite being part of a hotel lobby. The food was pretty good and we got what we expected from our orders. Definitely nothing too exciting about the food and not sure it's worth the prices but it was decent food if unmemorable."

"Once again, twice in two weeks we had Dinner at Octagon. OpenTable was fast and easy as always in making our reservation.
Steaks were to a little higher standard than normal, and did not disappoint. The fried oysters are a must! Seared Tuna was very good.
Best item there....Service. Angela was very professional, yet took the time to visit with a couple tired road warriors, made us feel welcome, without going overboard. She always has a great smile and makes you feel very welcome.
Thanks again, see you again in July!

"The food and service was excellent. I had called ahead of time to order a slice of cake for my daughter's birthday. They took great care of this along with our service for the evening. The food was excellent and no one rushed us. We were greeted when we walked in and when we left. They get customer service with a good product (food)."

"This was my first time dining at Octagon. It was suggested by a family member who frequents the Mystic Marriott Hotel and Spa. My husband and I had early dinner reservation. Everyone was wonderful. Our table was set and waiting for us. Those who waited on us were polite and knowable and accommodating to a dining combination that was not on the menu. The food was plentiful and cooked to perfection ( as a matter of fact as I am writing this my mouth is watering for the left over rib-eye in the refrigerator). And then there was dessert! Any foodie knows Madagascar vanilla gelato is a number pick. Overall everything was amazing, service, food (crisp vegetables, amazing steaks and scallops and yummy dessert). I am planning another tip!"

"The food is actually pretty good for that area (sorry, I'm a New Yorker!!). The service is lovely and the atmosphere can't just can't help look like it's in the Marriott but it's nice enough. The dinner was good and the breakfast buffet was good enough, especially for the price of $16.95. All in all don't be afraid to try Octagon!"

"We went here for Valentine's Day and the food was excellent. The service was also wonderful. I recommend this for a great date spot and excellent steak! The rabbit was also delicious along with the lobster bisque and the scallop appetizers."
