We had the pleasure of dining here with someone who knew the chef. He came out to talk with us and was extremely nice. We tried the tasting menu - you don't order anything and they bring you 7 small plates. I'm not even sure I could tell you what we ate, but it was amazing! Such cool combinations like... More

Extraordinary Easter meal. Service was outstanding. Food was also outstanding. Great Easter feast. Only complaint $2.95 for a cup of coffee seemed outlandish when I can get one (larger proportion) at DD for $.99. For a $400 meal coffee should be complimentary.

I was in the area for a weekend getaway, picked this restaurant based on the menu and other online reviews. I'm so glad I did. We ate in the pub as walk-ins because we didn't make a reservation, and were seated in less than 10 minutes. The food and the service was amazing. I'm putting this on my must visit... More

My wife & I made the trip to Simsbury CT. from Long Island solely to dine at Millwright's as the reviews were excellent. Happily, we were not disappointed! This is a first class, Michelin star worthy restaurant that is well worth the trip from anywhere you live (they have won James Beard runner up awards). The restaurant itself is beautiful.... More

Dining at a restaurant we thought appropriate for an anniversary celebration, we chose Millwright's. WOW!!! Short of traveling overseas or to a major metro area of the U. S., we could not have chosen more wisely. The food was unbelievably delicious and prepared to ABSOLUTE PERFECTION, while service, ambience, and presentation were beyond reproach. Our waiter, Ron, was the VERY... More

we met a couple here- each coming from 90 minutes away - as it was half way for each of us. It was worth it. The facility is an historic mill overlooking a river with a small waterfall. We had a mushroom soup , fresh oysters and salad to start. Entrees were a venison chop plus venison meatball ( vey... More

My mother, sister, and wife enjoyed a marvelous meal at Millwright restaurant. The ambience was fantastic with our table adjacent to the window overlooking the Falls below. At least the food was fantastic. However, the service and other arrangements fell far short of expectations. We arrived at the appointed time, Very early, with almost all tables empty.

We have been to the upstairs, more formal, dining room. This was our first experience in the Tavern located on the lower level. The menu is extensive and you can have some items that are offered upstairs. Farm Greens and Kale Caesar salads were great. Cheeseboard could have been a little more generous. Order the biscuits, they are to die... More

Millwright Restaurant is one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The entire wait staff treated us as if we were VIPs, and we were visited right at our table by our chef, Niles.
