    good neighborhood place to get good food. it has become a little pricey but when you consider the "no corkage" policy it levels out somewhat. the bar has about doubled in size and that is where the increased revenue should come from.

    I'd like to appluad the manager for really going above and beyond for us on our special night. We arrived at the best table in the house and discovered a special card made just for us. It was beautiful and will help us remember the superb dining experience we had. All our special requests were honored and every server even congradulated us on our anniversary. We left very happy and will be back every time we are in Simi Valley.

    Love Sutter's Mill, a new find for our family. My husband and I live about a half an hour away from the restaurant, but we discovered Sutter's Mill in the my relatives neighborhood. Went on-line first and found many great reviews, with just a sprinkling of some negative ones, so we decided to try it out. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant does not charge corking fees, enabling us to bring our own wine. Everything from salads to main courses were wonderfully tasty. We thought the service was great and very accommodating, as our request to be next to a window was provided. We would definitely come again!

    The restaurant was dark,old feeling. Decor was boring. Food was large portions and not very well presented. My rib eye was very fatty. When my wife got her mashed potatoes they were cold. Her filet was supposed to be medium but was dry. We had never tried the restaurant before. Have lived in the area for 22 years. When we left we agreed we would never come back. Just didn't impress us.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    Not only was the food above all others, the owner is a rare gem! Joe made our visit here the most memorable Mothers Day for me. He sat across from our table talking to other patrons and we all joined in conversation discussing the food and what our favorites were. I have always ordered steak never anything else, well next time it's the burger. Hand made patty, never frozen. Mmmmmm. Our waitress Gabby was on point. Never let a glass get empty, brought me extra pepper corn sauce. She knows it's my FAVORITE! After this wonderful experience we go to leave to find we had licked our keys in the car. Not only did Joe let me use his personal phone to call my insurance company he gave my daughter and I a ride home. While hubby stayed with the truck.

  • What a Prime Rib!
    Matt
    Dined on 3/12/2014
    Our first time there and we were very pleased. The 16oz prime rib was very tasty especially with the fried onion rings cooked on top. It was very thick and more than I could handle so it made for an excellent sandwich the next day. My wife had the salmon which was also delicious. The section we were in was narrow and felt like being on a fancy train in the old western days. We both enjoyed the food, ambiance and our waitress was excellent. So to find out if we were lucky or if they are consistent, we will have to go back.

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    We came to Sutter's Mill after a day at the Reagan Library. I had read that they have no corkage and encourage diners to bring their own wine, so we brought a bottle of wine with us. The food was delicious. We decided to split a 12oz prime rib dinner. There was no plate split fee and they served us each our own 6oz cut of meat. We were able to order an additional side at ala carte price and that came with an extra side salad. The garlic sourdough toast was amazing. Our server was excellent. I would come back here the next time I am in Simi Valley for sure. The food was great!

    Disappointed
    Dined on 1/11/2014
    Three of us had the petite rib-eye steaks. One was returned because it was inedible; the management substituted a filet which was barely cooked. The other two steaks were not returned; however, they were clearly not even "Choice" cuts of meat. The waitress did remove the one steak from our bill and charged for the sides which was still a significant amount. We will never return.

    We have been to the fantastic brunch at Sutters Mill on quite a few occasions, but this was our first time for dinner, since they moved to Simi valley. What a fantastic pleasure it was. From the minute you enter to the time you leave everyone makes you feel like you are a part of the Sutter Mill family. The food is excellent ,the steak was like butter, and the Sea Bass should not be passed up. It is hard to make a decision when there are so many wonderful choices.
