Magnolias at the mill Ratings and Reviews
Very nice place. First time for us for our anniversary. They treat you special if they know your visit is a special occasion. Menu is creative with most of the basics with a different taste. Dry aged filet cooked medium was very dry. Menu said with bearnaise sauce but it came with some kind of glaze. Crab cakes had a good but unusual flavor.
Calamari appetizer was excellent and desert was excellent.
Overall we would go back again. Nice atmosphere and friendly, competent staff.
We love Tuskie's and have been excited about trying its western sister in Purcellville with some friends, ladies of a certain age. We weren't disappointed. Our server, Peter, was a joy, attentive and pleasant. Unable to give the food 5 stars, though, as the beef in the steak salad was chewy and marbled with gristle, and the peach+cherry cobbler was flavorless and overran its serving dish messily. Everything else was wonderful.
Magnolia at the Mill is a lovely restaurant. The atmosphere is great; however, everytime we go for the last few years we leave disappointed. My cocktail at the bar was great. The bartender suggested a drink for me that was a winner. It went downhill from there. The chopped salad we split was very lackluster-not much taste and no color. My husband had a steak. It was quite large but tough and at the price it should have been better. They said it was local beef that was grass fed and corn finished. If so it needed more time to finish! I had the pork two ways. The rolled and stuffed pork was ok but the presentation was sloppy and I felt the cheese on top was an afterthought to cover the presentation. The best thing on the plate was the greens which were stuffed int the pork and had great flavor. It was also stuffed with what we were told was a housemade summer sausage. It had no flavor and there was way too much of it. We are going back for a group event and I we will order Calamari and salads!
We had a most enjoyable lunch - the chicken special and the steak. It was fun to see an Austrian wine from Anton Bauer on the wine list. We each had a glass. The key lime pie and banana cheesecake concluded a delicious experience. We hope to return again soon.
We have been to Magnolias many times and this particular time I brought my business partner. This was their first time. My disappointment was how long it took for someone to come to our table and great us, provide water etc. It so happened that a staff member Ducet was passing by and asked if we had been served someone. We said no and she pointed to the staff member who had our table. I wanted to get eye contact with the individual but it was not to be. I then asked Ducet to help us and she did. From that moment we had the service I had come to expect from Magnolias.
I would also point out that the staffers who bring you your food could have smiled and at least displayed an appreciation for us the customer. I noticed with every coarse delivered the staff simply never smiled even after thanking them for their service. Not what I have experienced in the past from Magnolias.
We ordered four different items-the pork two ways was enjoyed by my son-in-law. The Chicken and Ravioli was enjoyed by my daughter. The prime rib was especially enjoyed by my husband. I ordered the ribs and they were especially spicy which I do not particularly like and would have liked to have known that before I ordered them. They were also very dry. I only ate 1/2 of one of the racks. The cole slaw was old and warm. I did say something about this and they brought me a salad but I really like cole slaw with ribs. 3 out of 4 meals isn't bad.
There were 4 of us. We all ordered different entrees and all were excellent! Service was also very good. The only negative comment is that the charcuterie plate was not very good in comparison to most that we have ever had. Needs upgrading! Otherwise, a great dining experience
Magnolias seems to have lost a little something, service was slow and a couple of our meals were undercooked. Management made up for it with complimentary dessert but I am leary of giving them another chance with prices associated with meals known for better quality.
This was my third visit to Magnolia's. We were a group of 5 and I seem to be the only unhappy one, so it might have been my meal choice. The steak had a sauce over which had very little taste. The seafood melody was tasteless. The Brussel sprouts were done to a crisp, the mash potatoes were great however. The waitress was excellent and made the bland meal much better by her attentiveness and personality. I repeat, the other 4 in my party were pleased with their meals.
Usually we really enjoy Magnolias but this time we were seated in a "back" room that really had no ambiance at all. It was just my husband and I and most of the other tables were larger groups. The one party seated next to us was a group of eight women that were a bridal party.
We will definitely dine at Magnolias again but will always request to be seated in the main room.
Great service, the food was just as we ordered and tasted wonderful.
The price does not reflect the quality of food or service. It's a small town restaurant with city prices. 4 adults for dinner and we were seated on the side porch, fine for lunch. They're touted has fine dining. We've never had a fine dining experience there.
Celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary here on 7/21/17. Magnolias has been highly recommended for a long time and we were finally able to dine there. It was fantastic. Our server was completely knowledgeable in every aspect. Service was prompt. Food was delicious. Cocktails delicious and refreshing. Appetizers to dessert, everything was spectacular! We can't to return to try more of this wonderful menu!
We've been here before, but will never go again. We had a 5:30 reservation and were seated on the porch. The whine of the air conditioning was almost deafening. The service was awful, especially since our server only had two tables (the place was nearly empty). Our server would stand at the bar chatting with other staff and ignored our frequent attempts to get her attention. The other server in our section was such a loud talker that all conversation had to stop when he was speaking to another table.
Our food was less than ideal - undercooked fillet and scallops that we're overly seasoned. The crab and artichoke dip was bland and was not worth the expense.
It was an all around terrible experience that cost a small fortune. We've always loved magnolia at the mill, but won't ever go again. It's too expensive to risk another terrible experience.
We have been to magnolias many times in the past this is the first time that I would consider the service subpar, seemed like waitress could not keep up with all of her tables… Food has always been excellent this particular time my steak had to be sent back three times and in the end the outside was completely charred and the inside was well done, they put a brown sauce over the steak in an attempt to cover up the outside being so chard. The manager seemed shocked and taken aback by the fact that the steak had to be sent back three times. This was the most expensive steak on their menu and if they were unable to cook it per request because it was a thick cut of meat they should have said so ahead of time. By the time they got my meal to me everyone else in our party was completely done eating this is never good . I did also notice other tables sending items back for correction not sure what has changed in the kitchen but something has changed. For the prices that are charged at magnolias customers should absolutely expect the service and the food to be perfect every time not just some of the time .
My salad came with seared tuna chunks but I didn't know that that meant that the interior is not cooked. I asked the server of my misunderstanding and whether they would cooked the pieces. They cooked them through and were still tender, juicy and very flavorful. I was very delighted! The seating in the sun-filled solarium part of the restaurant was ideal for this summer early evening.
