Wonderful dinner following a show at the Papermill Playhouse. The theme of the food and drinks tied in with the show (British invasion). The food was delicious - great flavors and cooked perfectly. Will definitely return next time we go to a show!

My one area to recommend for improvement is we were given the payment stub and was not asked if there was anything we needed such as refill of our desert coffee? Servers also assumed we were getting one cocktail for the meal and I had to ask for a glass of wine with dinner. Otherwise the experience was excellent.

Always have a wonderful meal here. A bit pricy but worth it. The staff just bends over backwards to make your experience here excellent. This meal was fashioned to go with the show My Very Own British Invasion and did not disappoint. We enjoyed a lovely English lunch before the show. Would always recommend. Their drinks are delicious and generous as well.

This is a perfect place to have lunch before the show at the Playhouse. The food was excellent and the service topnotch. The only downside is the crowed table layout and the noise level; doable for a quick lunch but not acceptable for a relaxing dinner or lunch. I must say your staff goes above and beyond to accommodate your diners and maneuver between the tables!

Have been to this restaurant several times. Starters and dessert, drinks and coffee always good, however I feel your entrees for lunch are poor. Why not serve some sort of salad as achoice, or a normal quiche, or a wonderful choice of sandwich. Make it a lunch menu. I truly think that is what people want. Don’t try for the unusual. It isn’t working
By the way, love the restaurants decor and service couldn’t be better. Enjoy coming there except for your menu

A very well designed, comfortable, attractive venue. The three course lunch was interesting, portions perfect, something for everyone. The service was excellent. I was disappointed at the small glass my Mimosa was presented in ~ :-) ~ otherwise quite pleased.

I was happy to see a vegetarian choice on the menu. The wait staff is excellent - very attentive and the timing of the meal is good since most of the customers are seeing a show at the Papermill Playhouse We have been customers of the Carriage House before and will be happy to visit again.

Since my husband was ill that evening, I took my daughter along to see the show and have dinner. She hadn't been there in 22 years so was quite surprised at how lovely the restaurant still is. We had a lovely dinner served by a very competent waiter and totally enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent as always and the ambiance is just so enjoyable. I recommend the Carriage House to all my friends.

The food is always excellent, beautifully prepared and attractively plated. I especially like that the portions are not oversized, though there is always more than enough. I eat lunch there before a matinee, and I like that the dining room is bright and cheerful. The service, too, is always excellent and manages to get us out in time for the show, in spite of a crowded, though not noisy, dining room.

My sister and I had not been to the carriage house for many years and enjoyed it very much for her birthday celebration before a show at the papermill. The only negative was unfortunately the 3rd person in our party was a last minute cancellation therefore I was unable to notify the carriage house we were only 2. As the maitre d was seating us he was reprimanding me for not informing the restaurant of the change. Yes if it wasn’t a last minute change I surely would have called. Sometimes things are better left unsaid.

The food was outstanding. Yes, the price of $50 per person for the fix price 4 course meal is high, but if you are looking for a great meal and willing to accept the price, then try Carriage House out. The Butternut Squash soup was the best I have ever had.
