Another excellent pre-show at Paper Mill Playhouse Dinner! This place is like Brigadoon, appearing out of the mists only when Paper Mill Playhouse has a production on its stage. The menu is always inventive and delicious, the service friendly and attentive, and it's a 1 minute walk to some great theater at PMP! And check out "The Loft" for cocktails in a lovely setting.

The butternut squash soup was delicious, and the maple glazed chicken with apple butter and mashed sweet potatoes was to die for!!! The perfect ending was the pumpkin bread pudding. The apple cider cocktail would've been better if it had less ice, and more apple flavor. Other than that...I've NEVER had a bad meal here...ever! As always...many compliments to the Chef.

The service was outstanding, the food looked and tasted delicious but I’m afraid there was too much garlic and the aftertaste and bad breath were a downside.

Fixed price menu is MUCH too limited for other than a quick snack - probably not the reason you chose this restaurant.

Another season! Another "reason" to enjoy the Carriage House again! Our favorite place to relax and enjoy our meal after a hectic drive of nearly a hour to get to the Papermill Playhouse. Service exemplary, very accommodating staff, unique menu with a beautiful atmosphere to enjoy a delightful meal. Thank you to manager Christopher and professional staff for always pleasing us.

I have recommended the Carriage House to anyone I know that is going to the Papermill. Food is always delicious and attractively presented. Staff is well trained and knowledgeable about the menu. We especially love Dina, so pleasant and helpful. We have reservations for all 5 shows each year.

Delicious food. Everyone at our table of 4 greatly enjoyed their choices. The prix fixe menu works well with timing to see a show at Papermill Theater. My only complaint was the noise level, which wasn't horrible but I still struggled a bit to hear my dining companions.

It was a nice relaxing lunch before theater. The menu always varies and has interesting choices. I chose the thai soup and really enjoyed it. The mixed green salad with chicken was delicious. The bread pudding was a good choice. The bloody Mary was served beautifully with shrimp, olives, and celery.

Needs new menu. Do not like chef's choice of entrees - how about steak or roast beef sandwich, regular hamburger! Too many weird combinations. My friends and family agree.

It was a fixed menu, which in itself is okay however there should be some sort of substitute , the food prepared with too much fruit. Best part of the meal was the dessert.

Love the convenience to the Papermill. The food was delicious but didn’t like that the bread/rolls were cold. For an upscale restaurant, warm, fresh bread is key. The wine list had nice options but a wine bucket was not available. I prefer not to have to wait to have my wine poured. We unfortunately hit a night with a lot of kids whose parents thought it was ok for their kids to roam freely in the restaurant, running and bumping into to servers. I will definitely go back but certainly on a night when it’s an adult show.

Went for dinner before show. The pasta was a delicious choice off the pre fix menu. Since I didn’t finish my second cocktail they gave me a take out cup so i could bring to the theatre. Great idea!
Could use another bathroom. Only one for everyone ! Long line
