Diner Reviews
  • "The food was great. Truly delicious. It was the best part of our experience. The food took a long time to get to our table. I'm not sure why the long wait but the waiter did apologize. We had a child with us so we were not looking for a long dining experience but thats what we had. We ended up being there for almost 2 hours and that was just too long. We were also seated in a room off the main dining room, a sun room. It was a chilly night and the ceiling fans were running and we were all quite cold. I'm sure this would have been a lovely room in the afternoon when you could see outside but it was very basic for evening seating. Truly had no personality at all. I would have much rather been seated in the main area."

  • "I reserved my parents a table at Magnolia at the Mill for their 46th wedding anniversary. I stopped by with my credit card for them to pay for the meal with and left instructions for them NOT to see the bill. They arrived and were handed special menus that read, "Happy 46th Anniversary Harold & Rena," which they got to keep at the end of their meal. When it came time for their bill, they were handed a bill that read, "Your dinner has been paid for compliments of Lizzy Fontaine." They were so surprised by the service they received and raved about the food, the wine and the ambiance. Thank you SO much for providing such a memorable experience for them. We will all definitely be back!"

  • "Even after a phone call, when we arrived they could not find our reservation in their system, so we lost our table. Ended in a back room. Everyone's cappuccino was cold and tasteless. They replaced all of them-- replAcements were exactly As they should have been the first time. Peach Melba ice cream was void of sweetness and had a strange after taste. Rest of meal was good."

  • "We only get to stop here for lunch on our way from Pennsylvania to a destination in Virginia. We always look forward to our "lunch break" at Magnolia's. The food is always delicious, the wines by the glass selection is good and the Martini's are ice cold. The servers are attentive and friendly. An all around great experience!"

  • "Service was great, our waiter was friendly and efficient. Food was excellent, frittata cooked to order, French toast was fluffy with warm syrup. Highly recommend you try the Bloody Mary's. Bartender even made our party peach Bellini's even though they weren't on the menu."

  • "We received surprise guests from out of town on a Saturday evening so we took them to Magnolias. Everyone had eaten dinner so we ordered appetizers and desserts. How do they make something as everyday as tomato soup so extraordinary? I don't know, but they did! And if you're feeling adventurous, order a Pink Squirrel from the bar. Delicious!"

  • "I rarely encounter a place that has some much going for it that is such a tremendous dissappointment. The Staff was friendly and professional. We ordered the Shrimp and Grits and the Paella. Food arrived and we dug in. We found that the grits on the shrimp and grits were barely room temp (they were getting that filmy covering) and the shrimp were almost raw. Grits tasted unremarkable. The Paella looked ok (plenty of sea food) some fish pieces were hard as super balls and others perfect and flakey. There was so much red pepper in the paella my ears started to burn. (Red pepper crushed what ever saffron was in the dish). Finished it off with the cookie and ice cream. Cookie dough was tan on top: rest was raw/ uncooked. Disappointing"

  • "Always enjoy Magnolia's and look forward to their special offerings. However, the pork tenderloin daily special fell short of their usual excellent track record. It was very bland and could have used some sauce to liven it up a bit. We also had the Flank Steak Ceasar Salad and as always, it was spot on! Service and overall ambiance was excellent and less than perfect entree will definitely not keep us from returning from our favorite Purcellville restaurant."

  • "This establishment is well staffed but stumbles on the food. Recommended appetizers like fried green tomatoes and spring rolls did not have a fresh taste. The Cajun style food was way too sweet. The plain burger was fine but the onion rings and fries were awful. All in all - nice staff but an awful attempt at cooking. Bar drunks are expensive and poorly executed. Diet Coke was flat."

  • "I noted on our reservation that we were celebrating my wife's birthday. They sat us early, and gave her a personalized menu with her name on it. At the end of dinner, they gave her a small assortment of truffles, and her menu rolled up with a bow. Wonderful experience, and we will go back again."

  • "We enjoyed everything we got at what the locals affectionately call "Maggie's". Our waiter was phenomenal and kept our drinks fresh and our starters and meals came so quickly. Everything was perfect save a few wilted leaves in my salad but they were not readily visible from the top of the plate. We would go back in an instant."

  • "Had the beef brisket and it was ok. Fiancee has the trout; it was ok. Good ambiance for a small town; but there are many other choices in NoVA which surpass this dining option. Will give it another try in the future when I'm in the area but I won't make the long drive to there purposely."

  • "This is an excellent restaurant, and I would make the drive for the burgers alone!"

  • "My only criticism is that there was an abundance of flies where we were sitting. We were in the enclosed room in the back and I kept seeing all these flies. The food and service were excellent so I don't want to give the review a negative spin."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We're regulars at Magnolias and the experience is usually exceptional. However, maybe it was because it was Independence Day we felt the service was too rushed. We hadn't even finished our salads and the main course was being hustled in, and later our coffee order was forgotten until it was almost too late. But like I said, maybe it was because it seemed like the last sitting of the day and everyone was in a hurry to shut the place down and the restaurant was almost empty."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The trout was excellent although adding a salt water topper like crab was a bit strange. The tastes are quite different. The service was great but be prepared to wait for items such as freshly prepared trout. The building and atmosphere was classic and warm because of the architecture and mill feel. It reminded me of the mill I once explored when I was a child. The only thing I would change is the lighting and seating. The lighting was quite modern and did not fit the theme, and the chairs looked like a cheap addition to such an expensive structure. Overall, I give it a four out of five stars."

  • "We had our 6 year wedding anniversary dinner here and it was absolutely wonderful! The food tasted delicious. I loved the wine and beer selection here. Great place to eat at!"

  • "This was our first visit and we were impressed. Food was great; service prompt, friendly and helpful, and ambiance outstanding. A couple points off because we were not offered bread, and, for an upscale restaurant, I was surprised to be asked to hold on to my fork when the salad was removed."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Signature Fried Green Tomatoes were good, but hadn't been blotted appropriately. Cobb salad was ho hum. Too much romaine, chop too large, local greens MIA. Dressing was nothing special. Local, fresh berry crisp was too syrupy, but Lemon sherbet was quite good. Berries would have been great without the crisp and added sugary syrup."

  • "We stopped by Magnoia's about 4 years ago on a whim. What a find! Since then we have had them cater Thanksgiving when we were remodeling; host my wife's law firm's Christmas Dinner; and had several me and my wife dinners. This last time was for our 39th. I had Magnolia's arrange to get a dozen roses. The menu was great and even personlaized for us. Hard to beat anywhere in the area."

  • "Always good, always happy! IN western Loudoun, this restaurant is always consistent in service and quality. I never question eating at this establishment."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Salads were good. Crab imperial was so salty difficult to eat. Rhubarb pie was very good but difficult to find ice cream. Blueberry cheesecake was okay (watery - must have been frozen). Most Menu items were too complex - it would have been nice to have some simply grilled fish with sides."

  • "We enjoyed our meal and service. It was an excellent way to end an afternoon of wine touring in Loudoun."

  • "I was there at 12:30, so there were quite a number of families. The restaurant never felt overly-full. The food was replenished frequently and was delicious. There was a good array of breakfast and lunch items. The desserts were delicious. In my opinion, desserts are tricky because they can dry out, but that was not the case here. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating."

  • "We had spent afternoon at bluemont vineyard and wanted a place for dinner that would have good food and winery staff recommended this spot..we are from northern va near fairfax so this was not our normally area for dining.. Food terrific.. Some unusual dishes but each one was flavorful.. Even being an hour drive from home.. Might travel here just to fine! Traffic from no va a pain but it is a delightful spot"

Knowing it was my birthday, they had printed a special 'Happy Birthday' page for the menu they gave me which was a wonderful touch. We would go back in a heartbeat!"

  • "We were seated promptly upon our arrival. Our server knew the menu and the specials well, and was both friendly and efficiently. There was a good variety in the menu offerings. The food presentation was very nice. Ingredients were fresh and the meals ample and delicious. The setting is very nice. The décor and building construction ( in an old mill) was interesting.Noise level was a little high, but not unusually so. I did appreciate that most of the diners dressed up a little and appreciated the occasion. I would definitely recommend to others and would return for a special occasion. I found the experience to be somewhat unique and it was nice not to just be in another chain establishment. I also appreciated that local wines were offered."
