Carriage House Restaurant
An eclectic a la carte menu of small plates and desserts is available only in the bar area; seating on a first come-first served basis. A full bar offers premium spirits and a stunning selection of interesting wines by the glass, as well as by the bottle.
The Carriage House is a real gen. You can get good gourmet food at a price that is affordable and not only do you get to taste dinner items that are masterfully crafted, you do not walk away hungry nor disappointed. The staff is fabulous, treating you like the valued guest they consider you to be. The various prix fixe offerings always satisfy your tastes, some times it;s very hard to pick between the options. And the atmosphere is great, comfy seats, quiet music, and little extra touches to make it special. Great place for a date, to celebrate a memorable event, or for a meal before/after a performance at the Paper Mill. I encourage everyone to give it a try... when you do, you'll be back!!
Had nice low Key dinner pre theater
Price fix was nice fair price
Appetite and main course was good
Dessert was average at best
Maybe it was what we chose
Sundae and rhubarb dish
Service and friendliness of staff was strongest part of night
Love the ambiance & confident servers! I love a good prix fixe menu.
Lovely dinner with good texture and blend of flavors. Respectful and prompt server. Only complaint was the stiffness of the chocolate tart shell. Beautiful surroundings and right next to the theater!
Very good all around value. Convenient to theater.
Great meal and service before our show. Will definitely do again.
Super-convenient for Paper Mill shows. Food was good but not outstanding, considering the price. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Quite noisy. Service somewhat slow. Previous visits were better.
We enjoyed our time at the Carriage House. Everyone was cordial, helpful but mindful we were socializing and did not hover.
We never felt neglected, enjoyed our meal and the drink that was recommended.
The location to the Playhouse can't be beat.
The only problem when researching the menu prior to coming they listed two menus and only one and this could be my fault was given.
I would, however, recommend it and I would go back. Maybe this will be our anniversary dinner place this year.
The service was amazing, attentive without being in your face, and the food was delicious. Good value for the prix fix.
When I made the reservation I was unaware that it was a pre Fide meal if so, I would not have booked it.
We did not care for the entree. We were expecting a flat iron steak but received what looked like a short rib or pot roast. The vegetables were delicious.
The service was excellent.
Wonderful Pre fixe menu prior to paper mill theater performances. A must try for their wonderful service team and delightful dishes!
Very nice as always and I appreciate being able to reserve my favorite table
As usual, the food was delicious and the wait staff exceptional. Great way to start the evening before seeing a play.
Absolutely love this restaurant. We are season ticket holders to the Paper Mill Playhouse and always look forward to our dinner here together with my parents and husband. The food is absolutely delicious, the drinks are fabulous. Truly a lovely dining experience. Great and friendly service from the moment you walk in the door. THANK YOU!
This time a little overwhelmed but still great food.
Always enjoy the dinner here before the show. Will keep coming back
I did not know that this restaurant existed because I have not been to the Paper Mill Playhouse. It appears to me that they usually have a pre fixe menu for theater goers. We were not going to the theater, it was Easter Sunday, but everything was perfect. It was nice and quiet, but not too quiet that I couldn’t have my three kids there, the service was top-notch, they have a bar so I had a Bellini and the food was delicious!
We always enjoy the Carriage House restaurant before attending Paper mill. The food is always fun and enjoyable. Great location great food wonderful staff. We will return.
Excellent great food, great service very nice setting
Pleasantly surprised on this 1st visit. Too bad only open during shows. Knowledgeable friendly server who fit our desired pace very well. 1st and second courses very good- salad, chicken and salmon. Tasty sauced and sides on both. Chocolate tart good flavor filling and butterscotch cream but the thick chocolate crust or shell very thick and hard. Nice bottle of sancerre. Bery pleasant atmosphere in larger dining room. Too bad bar and new Loft lounge not open aftrr show for drinks.
Have been coming here for a while. Food and service are exceptional. Will continue to keep this as our place to have lunch or dinner pre or post show.
Carriage House is of course most convenient if going to a Paper Mill performance. The service is always very friendly and efficient. In the past, I generally would have rated the food good, but Wednesday it was great. My wife had the salmon and I the pasta, and we each thought our meal was delicious.
Even though the price is a little high for the fix price menu. You get an exceptional meal. The Butternut Squash soup is absolutely exceptionable and the Salmon dinner was great.
Beautiful setting. Really nice staff. Delicious food. Such a convenient location. Thank you!
The Carriage House never disappoints. We generally come before each show and the ever-changing menu keeps it fresh and delicious. The newly opened Loft upstairs is a wonderful space to enjoy a cocktail after dinner and before the show.
Always great. Super nice server. Always on-time for the theater. New menu every visit.
We had a very good experience. The cocktails were "different" and absolutely delicious. The food was wonderful. The service was exceptional.
Unfortunately, the noise level was terrible. Loud music that never stopped.
The carriage house never fails to deliver the besi. We always enjoy our time at carriage house
When attending an event at the Paper Mill Playhouse, dinner before the show at the Carriage House greatly enhances the experience. The food is consistently excellent, though a bit pricey. Service is very good, and they always get you out in time for the curtain, which is only a few steos away.
Was a wonderful experience. Food was great, service was great! Was expensive! Once a season but not every play
As always, lunch at The Carriage House is as enjoyable as the show! Staff is beyond helpful. They make the afternoon so enjoyable.
Wonderful pre-theatre dining on the grounds of the Papermill Playhouse.
We LOVE Carriage House Restaurant and look forward to dining there regularly. Food, service and ambiance are always exquisite!
The food was find but not hot. And the coffee was warm.
I had the best flank steak I have ever tasted. The salmon was superior too. But, it is the service and the ambiance that make Carriage House so truly special. Thank you to all who make that happen.
Great selections prepared to perfection!
Most people think of the Carriage House as a place to go for dinner before the play at Paper Mill but that is only one aspect. You can go any time for lunch or dinner when there are performances whether you have a ticket or not. You can arrange for a private reception or attend some of the special events they host. The menu is posted online so you can see what seasonal entrees they have, it changes every show. It is prix fixe, for 3 courses and beverage. They offer enough choices to satisfy any diner, some times it's hard to pick which appetizer, entree or dessert you want that meal!! It's a great place for a date, an anniversary, a birthday, a holiday or just to treat yourself to good gourmet food at reasonable prices. And you will be completely satisfied! The staff is wonderful, the atmosphere pleasant, speciality drinks inventive, and well worth the trip. Try them today!!
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!
Been here several times and the food and drink continue to be awesome.
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.
