We just had our wedding at Pond House Cafe on June 27th and we were amazed with the venue! Susan was our wedding cordinator at the Pond House and she was awesome to work with and very reassuring, which was helpful with planning our CT wedding from SC! She made sure that everything was set before the big day and she was there the entire night of our wedding making sure everything went as planned! They made sure all of our little details were perfect for when all of our guests arrived and the space was beautiful as always! I would highly recommend Pond House Cafe for any event!

Went to Pond House Cafe this morning for brunch using OPEN TABLE. The waitress asked for our drink order but failed to tell us they had run out of waffles and french toast. We asked about pancakes and they didn't have that either. We asked to speak with Louis the manager and he didn't care and made no suggestions on any other items. What's up with that? They have no toast, flour, eggs, or waffle maker? It was two hours into a four hour brunch. We paid for the expensive drinks and told the waitress that we were leaving. When I got home, Pond House cancelled my Open Table reservation making it impossible to write a review.

The cafe is in the middle of Elizabeth Park, which features ponds full of ducks, rose gardens, and places to just sit in the sun. The cafe itself has a spectacular view of the pond, which is visible to all patrons. In warmer months there is a patio and a firepit. The service is very good. Well trained, with attention to detail, no cutting corners because they're feeling overwhelmed, and friendly to boot. The food is also excellent. I went for Sunday Brunch. I had a BLT omelette which was very good, and the menu has a bunch of different inspired items, including huevos rancheros. The fresh orange juice mimosa was also delicious. Also nice to know you're supporting local and organic food production. Will definetely come back again!

The staff was extremely helpful and accommodated last minute requests for our corporate event. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. Could do with a better beer selection though. The setup, otherwise, was very well done. Great value for price!

I just attended a wedding ceremony and reception at the Pond House, and it was great! It was an evening ceremony, and the party room was beautifully decorated with Christmas lights. The service by the staff--from coat check to hors d'ouerves to the buffet--was smooth and efficient. Last but not least: the food was fantastic! Buffets at weddings can easily be bland or lackluster--it's hard to suit many different palates--but the food at this reception was healthy, well-balanced, and flavorful. My favorite was the salmon topped with sort of sweetish compote (I couldn't really see it since the room had mood lighting) and the beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection--rare, but not bloody. I'm not in Hartford often, but if/when I come back, I'll be sure to swing by again!

We went for a wedding reception. I have special dietary needs and was told to speak with Erin. I did and listed my specific issues, including no pepper, heavy garlic, etc. She gave me one option which sounded more on the sweet side than the savory. (She also told me which appetizers to stay away from and told me the wrong one, which I found out the hard way when I got a mouthful of hot pepper sauce.) We had a baked apple salad, which was amazing. When my food arrived, the rice was on the cold side, dried out and over spiced. She seemed very upset when my husband sent it back. She was rude to me; if I could not have pepper/heavy garlic and a host of other things, it seems as if an Indian rice dish would also be inappropriate. She did offer me pasta which was greasy. Our entire table had to send back cutlery and/or glasses because they were filthy. The setting was beautiful. The room (I don't believe) needed any extra decorating other than centerpieces. Parking was lacking.
