Danbury Food Service restaurant inspections conducted by the Danbury Health & Human Services Department in September.

For a complete description of each violation below, click here to see the state's guide to restaurant inspections. Note the violation number on the left under each restaurant, and then find that violation number in linked state guide.

Those items listed below each restaurants are the violations. So a restaurant, for example, with a 9 - Handling of Food Minimized, didn't minimize the handling of their food. A restaurant with a 7 - Food protected during storage, preparation, display, service and transportation, failed to protect its food. A serious violation, a four-point violation, for example, Failing to Maintain Proper Food Temperature, might mean an automatic failure, because that violation is more unhealthy for patrons than a number 3 violation or a number 2 violation.
