    Service was fair to poor. Food was generally good put priced too high. I wouldn't go back unless I received a gift certificate. Also, there was some sort of reference on the top of each menu that the restaurant was closing. The reference was not clear.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/1/2014
    We arrived at 7:45 for an 8pm reservation table was available at 8:10. The hostess lead our party of four to be seated at the enterance to the restrooms we inquired about a different table none available it was restaurant week, yuk! The server was polite but not on top of her job duties. We had to ask for bread twice, she cleared items from the table and not once did she ask anyone if they needed anything. Doubt I would consider this restaurant a second time if I did I would probably sit in the bar area seemed more inviting. If I had known this was restaurant week in Stamford I would have had dinner else where or stayed home. I have never had a good experience at any restaurant during this event.

    We went during restaurant week and 2 people in our group ordered from the restaurant week menu. They were very happy with the value, portion size, and quality. The 2 other people in our group ordered from the regular menu and were also happy. We all ordered seafood items. For dessert, I ordered the carrot cake and it was huge! It was enough for 6 portions. We would return but sadly it is now closed.

    service and quality of food has greatly declined. Food was very dry and lacked seasoning. It was hard to not only find our waitress but to get her attention once we actually saw her in the dining area.

    Disappointment reared its head when we learned our favorite trout dish was not on the menu. However, our server, Kyle, spent a good deal of time with us going over menu items he thought we might enjoy. Our food turned out perfectly, and thanks to Kyle, we won't ever have to be concerned about substitute choices. Mitchell's is an excellent destination for seafood and service.

    Dinner for Valentines Day was excellent. Usually on Valentines day service at most resturants not so good. The place was packed, we had a drink at the bar and were seated promptly. The service was excellent, the food came out fast. And the fish was cooked perfectly. Will definitely be back.

    I did a reservation Friday 8 Pm and arrived early. Nevertheless I had to wait 20 minutes even though I confirmed my reservation over the phone. When I placed my reservation I asked for a spacious table away from the restrooms and I guess the hostess understood the opposite by giving me the second table closest to the restrooms. The server was nice and knowledgeable but you could tell they were being pressured by the manager to keep the tables moving, so not a great place for a romantic occasion. The food was good and the price too but I wouldn't use the restaurant for special occasions.

    Great food as usual and desert is fabulous; all of our team looks forward to the Sharkfin Pie and Carrot Cake. The service is fantastic and accomodating for large groups which is a nice attrction in Stamford area. Although, the serving staff seems short sometimes and a little speedy service would be a good improvement opportunity.

    Disappointing evening. Service was a bit clunky...had to ask several times for new knives and folks, didn't bring condiments as requested, suggested a wine but then came back to tell us they didn't have it! My wife asked if they could hold the garlic and the server said yes. Fifteen minutes later she came back and told us know. My wife then asked for a different dish and they brought something completely different. The evening did not feel special... been their before and had a better time. Perhaps an off night, but you really do need to get it done on a Saturday night.

    For a seafood place, this restaurant needs to do some soul searching. This plate I had was soaked in butter to the point I could not taste anything but butter. We ate at the bar and the bartender, Nick was a downright pest. Rushing us and acting like a McDonald paper hat wearing, tyrant. This guy even rush our payment of the tab and argued with his co worker Terrible service, very unprofessional, I would never go back.

    Always fresh fish that's nicely prepared. One of the party had a nice ribeye steak, too - well prepared, nice presentation. Service was a little spotty but adequate though on other occasions, it was top notch. It happens to the best now and then, but it wasn't awful. Food is very good - save rooom for the desserts, especially the carrot cake which is very sharable, comically so. Good specials too.

    They closed the next day and we were told. When we tried to order wine, the selection was non-existent. We were not sure that the food would be fresh. It would have been far better to tell us when we walked up to the hostess stand that they were going to close. Hiding things like that was not a good policy.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this fine restaurant for a special holiday dinner. We each ordered one of the daily specials; both were perfectly prepared seafood/steak combinations, served with a superb creamy clam chowder. The wait staff was efficient, unobtrusive and helpful. We'll return to Mitchell's when we are next in the area for dinner.

    Both the Shanghai Shrimp, Salmon, and Sea Scallops and the Blackened Yellow Fin Tuna dinners were extraordinary. Everything on the menu sounds delicious and we look forward to returning after the holidays. We also can't wait for another round of Crushed Blackberry Agave Margaritas. They weren't too sweet as margaritas often tend to be. The staff were very friendly and accommodating too.

    The food was delicious, it was cooked how I wanted at a reasonable price . But, the service was very slow even when the restaurant was not busy. I ordered 3 appetizers and only 2 came on time, the 3rd was brought out 20 minutes late. The waitress also took a long time to refill our drinks. I would go again if the service is a little faster.

    Mitchell's Fish Market offered a fixed price, traditional Thanksgiving Dinner as well as their regular menu. The 3-course menu included turkey with all the fixings and was definitely a good value. Those who preferred an alternative to turkey were pleased with the extensive range of options. The wait staff was very attentive but not intrusive. It was a very positive dining experience for our small family.

  • Mediocre Lobster
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 11/17/2013
    We selected Mitchell's because my European guests expressed a desire for fresh American lobster. What they got, unfortunately was a watery, tasteless variety of questionable origin that appeared to have departed the ocean long ago and been left overlong in the freezer or died of old age in the restaurant tank. Both the tuna that we ordered and the salmon were fresh and satisfactorily prepared but hardly exceptional The atmosphere, with a combination of blaring popular music competing with numerous televisions tuned to a variety of stations and did not facilitate conversation or inspire relaxed dining..

    We were dressed for the theater- so we wanted a place a little upscale but not a place that would break our already broken wallet from our holiday shopping spree. We loved all the wood, the lamp shades and accent pieces on the wall- a very inviting decor. We ate our lunch at the bar and the wait staff there could talk wine and had a great sense of humor. They kept our glasses filled and continually made sure we had all we needed without crowding us. The food was excellent, my husband had the Chilean sea bass and I had the lobster tail- it was very, very good! We talk about our next venture to Stamford, and it definitely included a stop at Mitchell's.

    The food was ok, the waiter was fine but the kitchen was dreadful. Asked for my fish to be cooked through ( medium well) and had to send it back 3 times to be cooked enough. First time came out rare. Waiter was very apologetic and comped my dinner which was appropriate. Considering this is a fish restaurant the kitchen should know how to cook fish and if not quite right the first time get it right the third not have to wait until the fourth try when everybody else was finished.

    This is a very inviting restaurants. I liked the option of being seated in the bar-area (noisier) or when you want a quiter seeeting in the formal restaurant-part. The Seafood was great, the steak was good. Salad was only o.k. - the seemingly easiest part was the least good but still o.k. Service was good, knowledgeable and friendly. Gof plae to eat, not cheap but good quality for the money.

Delicious brownie icecream cake dessert. Looking forward to returning. Beautiful interior with one wall a map of Long Island sound and another HUGE picture of ship Normande.Valet parking available too, which can add to a special occasion instead of walking to mall parking lot.
