The Mill at 2T
It was our first time to yourIt was our first time to your restaurant and it was wonderful.... Meal we had was unbelievable! The only thing was for me given the hot hot day outside it was very warm inside. All and all had a wonderful experience and can't wait to come back6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA first time visitor!There are only 8 tables in the dining room, about 4 tables in the bar area, and the counter seating at the kitchen. The atmosphere makes anywhere you sit in the dining room relatively private; the huge windows provide beautiful views...the night we were there, we watched storms roll in and light up the skies.
The menu changes daily, depending on what the local farms are able to provide. My meal started with octopus sauteed in coconut with curried shrimp and black beans...and my entree of ricotta ravioli and sweet peas was delicate and delicious...the 3 hour meal ended with binet donuts sitting in homemade carmel...it was all amazing.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMNYC food in Sleepy SimsburyThe chef displays true mastery in his preparation of fresh and inventive dishes. Limited menu, not surprising in such a small restaurant. i do wish the wine list offered more reasonably priced selections, and not such a high percentage of "show-off" wines.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood makes this restaurant specialThis was our second visit - celebrating birthday and anniversary. Food was excellent and a real nice choice of wines. Although, it was crowded, service didn't degrade at all. They were attentive. The only issue was that the kitchen (must have been) backed up and we had to wait almost 30-40 minutes for our second course.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM1st timeThis was our first experience at "The Mill". The service was outstanding. The food was even more outstanding. The ambiance is very nice. My only complaint was that the chairs seem to be very worn out as far as the cushion and springs. I can tell you that it did very little to detract from the outstanding dining experience. Bravo!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMa true total experience.This was our first time sitting at the counter to watch the chief prepare our food. That was a real treat. The food was great....presentation was amazing. Service was great.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect PaceWe spent about 2-1/2 hours hardly noticing the time. Food is excellent. It is our fifth trip. Prices are such that you would not want to go every night, but we will certainly return.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in rural ConnecticutGreat find in rural Connecticut north of Harford. Very small restaurant in old mill with very creative dishes which change daily. Nice, but not extensive wine list. Food is well prepared and service is generally attentive.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply an outstanding meal:Simply an outstanding meal: service was top-notch and attentive. We had an early reservation and we were not rushed, even though we selected the tasting menu. The team at Mill at 2T were supportive and so very friendly. This is clearly one of the best places to eat in the greater Hartford area.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMService attentive but waitedService attentive but waited a tad too long for the entrees.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMentreeThe pork entrée was somewhat tough. This is probably due to the thickness of the cut. It is hard to properly cook a cut that thick without making it tough.
It was a little pricey for the type of meat as well.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite restaurantThe Mill at 2T is our favorite restaurant. The menu changes daily and there is always something delicious. The wait staff is courteous and attentive. Sitting at the counter is always a treat, and the chef has given me samples of food I would not have imagined trying. All around a wonderful experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for our weddingWe went here for our wedding anniversary and really enjoyed ourselves. We liked the intimate setting and how they made us feel extra special. We were pleasantly surprised with some bubbly that they brought to the table immediately to wish us a Happy Anniversary. This was my second visit and my husband first time and he agreed that he would definitely come back again. Thanks to the whole staff at Mill at 2T!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBy far, one of the best restaurantsBy far, one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in CT.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding withThe food was outstanding with choices for everyone. Prices were on the high side but not overpriced. Portions were fine for the type of restaurant. I heard a lot about the menu changing daily, but I am not sure that was the case as the menu posted on the internet was very similar. The tables were spaced far enough apart to ensure privacy as well as comfort. Service was prompt and friendly. It would have been a nice touch if one of the owners would have taken a moment to stop by tableside and ask if we were satisfied--the answer would have been YES. We are looking forward to our next visit.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGet there now!First visit here and I can say it is easily the best restaurant in Connecticut.
The popovers were great. Went with the pork belly appetizer and I have never had a blend of flavors that matched so well and tasted so delicious. The Pork shank matched that quality and the dessert trio was the perfect way to finish the meal.Service was attentive and not overbearing. Cannot wait to come back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWIthout a shadow of a doubtWIthout a shadow of a doubt a top 5 resturant in Connecticut. From apps to desert each morsel of dinner was " to die for".4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYou don't know what your missingWe had a great dinning experience. The tasting menu was awesome. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. We loved the atomosphere and will go back soon.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first trip toThis was our first trip to The Mill at 2T, on the advice of our close friends who we met there. A small, quaint setting with an active "eat at the wine & beer bar and watch the chef cook atmosphere". The food was outstanding. I opened with the escargot, the best I've ever had. My wife had the rib eye, a healthy juicy steak. My entre was the rabbit, not something I order often. It was very satisfying, a little boney, but the plating and taste were wonderful. We all finished sharing the dessert taster, don't leave without trying the donuts. Maybe pricey, but worth it. A smallish wine list, but complete. We will go again, and bring friends!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!This is our favorite place!

We will definitely be going back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding, theFood was outstanding, the service attentive and the wine list was complete. It's a small place so you dine in close proximity to the other guests but only a small drawback in light of all the things that are so good about this great restaurant.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fabulous night atAnother fabulous night at the Mill! The food is consistently superb and the ambiance and service exemplary.

I love the decor and style. The service is excellent - knowledgeable and professional but still enthusiastically friendly and warm. The wine selection is phenomenal, and the pairing is both perfectly executed and a phenomenal value. And of course, the food - likely the best in CT and I've covered a lot of ground throughout the state. Absolutely superb.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing...startingThe food was amazing...starting with the popovers! We were extremely well attended to by the wait staff as well...a wonderful experience on a special day! Thank you.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur second time here and itOur second time here and it confirmed our initial impression of the Mill @2T being a outstanding dinning experience. This time we went with another couple and we again did the tasting menu. The chef even accommodated a dietary restriction of one of our party. The food was outstanding; each course a tasty blend of ingredients and sauces. We chose the wine tasting accompaniment and each was generously poured and explained and were excellently paired. The Mill is expensive, but you are not only paying for the high quality food, but also the creativity of this husband and wife duo - every night a different menu. What a labor of love to create the 4 menus a week, then pair the right wines, constantly remaining fresh. We highly recommend.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSo good per usual! By farSo good per usual! By far the best restaurant around.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLess than an experience.The service is impeccable. The staff has their routine perfectly choreographed to a point that it is somewhat a transactional experience. You know going in that you have two hours to eat dinner. My wife and I are very conscious of how long we have occupied a table, we just always had a feeling that we were being timed. The food was very good. My wife and I had the Hanger steak. Our only preference was that we like it sliced a little thinner. The markup on the wine seems a bit excessive.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
