Armando and Mauricio always take excellent care of us. Have never been disappointed here. Thanks for everything.

    Everything was great, from the service & food and pond views. This was our second time there to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The only complaint I have was that it got very warm towards the end of our dinner. It was very crowded due to it being a saturday night, but it was also a humid evening. I'm hoping that their ac unit was cranked up to the max. But overall, it's a great romantic place for lunch or dinner. Highly recommended. The cheesecake was outstanding. You have to try it.

    We love Mill Pond for the view of the water and the food is excellent! We had the oysters to start very fresh and tasty. Kale salad is perfect dressing is so good. 2lb lobsters stuffed with crab meat are Amazing. My only upsetting moment was when we went to pay. I wanted to use a visa gift card and they would not take it:(. A Visa card is the same thing as a credit card. Excellent restaurant !

    One of my favorite places in Huntington, my experience this time (and I have been to Mill Pond a lot), was horrible. Service was terrible from waitress not saying hello and going right into order, to waiting for drinks, to not asking if we wanted to take our left over food home. Hope when I go back the experience is like I have known it.

    My husband & I were looking for a restaurant that we had never been to before by the water. I have always wanted to go to the Mill Pond House, so that's where we wound up. We were able to sit outside, which is under a big awning. It was a very overcast night, but it was still warm. Our daughter came with us, so she & I split a bottle of wine & my husband had beer. The drink selections wr ere very very expensive. We split a cheese platter before our meal which wet enjoyed. I had a shrimp dish for dinner which was good, my husband had a fish & my daughter had pasta. All good, nothing out of this world. We had desset, which also was very good. Overall I would say we enjoyed out night. The service was terrific, not sure I would go back.

    Dined on 8/29/2014
    I made an 8:00 reservation, got to the restaurant a few minutes before and I was told it would be a 45 minute wait. The hostess told me they were really busy and there was no way we would be seated earlier. She directed us to the extremely crowded outside bar.We were in finally seated at 9. It took a while for the waitress to come to introduce herself and see if we wanted drinks. After 20 mins, we asked another waiter that was helping her to take our order. She just had a sourpuss on the whole night. She seemed annoyed when we asked her for something too. There are are way too many other restaurants that I'd rather patronize. There's no excuse for rude behavior or snottiness from hostess to waitress.

    I ordered the fish special, Swordfish and Lentels. The fish was overcooked and the Lentels were undercooked. Additionally I ordered one of the featured wines from the wine list and was charged more than the wine list indicated. After bringing it to the waiters attention they corrected the bill. This place is a summer regular for me and my wife but the last two visits were disappointing.

    This is my third time at Mill Pond Inn. It is a new find for me. I enjoy the beautiful view and the food is top notch. The service is attentive. Sitting outside with a view of the pond is ideal. When the weather is good this is the best place to be. I had lunch twice and the outside was quiet and pleasant. However I went on a Sunday evening and we were not able to sit outside even though I had reserved a table ahead of time online and requested an outside seat since we were celebrating a birthday. There were no seats outside when we arrived and we were told if we waited 30-45 minutes we could sit outside. Later we did go out to see the view and the noise level was pretty high so we were happy we had eaten inside.

    We have had some very good meals at Mill Pond and some very mediocre meals. Unfortunately this latest was in the mediocre category. They ambiance, décor and noise level were all great. Unfortunately the service was "ok", not commensurate with the prices and the food was also just "ok" this time. One plate was clearly sitting waiting for the other to be cooked and showed up luke warm.

    This restaurant doesn't disappoint. The outside dining is comfortable, with a noise level that allows normal conversation. The view is great. Service is always attentive but not intrusive. The menu is extensive, and the food spectacular. We have eaten here many times over the years and never had anything but a consistently superior experience.

    The food and ambiance, as always, was wonderful. However, on this occasion, after requesting a table outdoors, when we arrived we were told that there would be a 45 minute wait. What no one told us, was that there were two parties inside the restaurant and that the only table available was inside in the dark lobby area. My only complaint is that we were not informed that the seating was so limited for our six o'clock reservation. They did try to accommodate us at the outside bar area, where we had our appetizers, which turned out to be ok, and then were seated at the next available table. Beautiful day and beautiful view.

    I made reservations at Mill Pond to celebrate our anniversary with friends. I put the info in comments, I mentioned it to the person confirming the reservation. I was told they would do a little special decor on the dessert, write Happy Anniversary in chocolate, add a little sparkle. None of that happened and in fact, the waiter who delivered my sushi appetizer spilled the soy sauce all over my place setting, tablecloth, almost on me. He never apologized, offered to put a fresh napkin over it, asked if the spill hit my clothing, nothing. I was very disappointed no one acknowledged the celebration, not even the wine steward listening as we toasted. Next time I'll think of Capital Grill or Rare650 for a celebration. The food was very good

    I was really disappointed that there was no offer to wait to get a table w/a view. We arrived 15 min before our reservation (7:30p) and were seated promptly but inside next to the wall next adjacent to the outdoor seating area. Someone came over and asked if we would like a drink etc but never told us his name. The waiter came over and told us the specials were located inside the menu. The food was good but my KLING fish dish needed some seasoning. My wife's grilled tuna was excellent. We also ordered appy's from the special menu which was spinach salad and the fried green tomatoes which were both excellent. We did not order dessert. Valet could use some help...

    We had a reservation for a birthday dinner and requested an outdoor table well in advance. We got there and there was no table for us. We explained that this was reserved on Open Table and nobody seemed to care. Since we drove for over an hour, we wanted to wait for a table. They said nothing would be available for more than an hour. They said to have a drink at the bar. I asked if that meant they were giving us a drink and the reply was, "no, you want a drink, buy it yourself." NEVER AGAIN

    View, food and ambiance were wonderful. The waiter (Mauricio) was rude, unprofessional and actually diminished the experience to a great degree. For the first time in decades of dining at Fine Dining restaurants world wide - we requested that another waiter complete our meal service. Blake was wonderful. It seems that (according to previous reviews) that management does not really care about staff attitude - perhaps they think it adds to the "exclusivity" of the room. Actually it causes patrons to seek out other, more cordial places to dine. An email to the owner went unanswered.

    My husband and I were disappointed with our recent dining experience. We had dined here a few years ago and it was not as good as we remembered. The wait staff seemed to rotate and they failed to follow up after each course to ask how the food was or if we needed more drinks. Although the sushi was excellent, our main courses were bland. I would not recommend eating here nor would I return.

    Sat down and immediately greeted by a server assistant who asked if we wanted a drink. We asked for a drink menu he said "what were you thinking of" so had to think on the spot. The table next to us was greeted by the actual server who brought them the drink menu when they asked. Once I received the menu I saw different drinks I would have preferred. Appetizers, entrees and desserts came too quickly after each other. We wanted dessert but could barely finish because were still so full. We saw server assistants more than our actual server. Our actual server was not very friendly herself. The food however was very good and the menu had a wide range.
