Cavey,s downstairs, the French restaurant, without a doubt. Absolutely old school elegance, perfect service, perhaps the best wine list in central Connecticut. Some of the other suggestions here aren't really appropriate for special occasions. Arugula is great but more of an informal bistro, Trumbull Kitchen is good but loud and informal. Morton's is a chain and not special at all. Restaurant du Village is great but it is in Chester which is a hike, about 45 minutes from Hartford, Metro Bis again is great but it is also a bistro. Max Downtown or Grant's would work, but if its really special go to Caveys.
