we never thought we will find such a nice fine dining restaurant in our neighborhood
Fantastic. This restaurant is consistently great including food atmosphere service. Always a pleasure to dine at the Metuchen Inn
Excellent from the service to the food. I will continue to dine at the Metuchen Inn.
The warm welcome from Jose always sets the tone... it is going to be a wonderful evening! We got a table with fireplace view and warmth. One couple shared the arugula salad and the other the shrimp cocktail. Both starters were very good. Dinners were a special of seared black bass, rack of lamb, scallops and the chicken. All the plates were clean and a good time was had by all.
Always a pleasure when I visit the Metchun Inn from the greetings at the door as you enter, throughout the service and the selections of delicious food. Very attentive, but not overbearing.
Staff and management are tops!
Every detail handled spectacularly!! Owner greeting upon checkin, no rush at bar, quality of service as well as food was terrific. Great spot ! Highly recommend.
Everything was great as usual. This place never disappoints.
Great food, excellent service , will definitely come back , the ossobuco was one of the best I had in a long time.
I've never had a bad meal. It's one of the nicest restaurants
in the area.
Excellent food, amazing atmosphere, wonderful place for a special occasion
Not the most attentive service. So many staff members take your order and deliver your food that you don't really know who the server is. Food was excellent and the wine list is extensive. I would recommend for the restaurant to get a specialty cocktail list.
Another great meal start to finish. Recommend the pasta bolognase we split an order as an appetizer. Outstanding service from our waiter John.
Honestly... we paid for the ambience, I guess. The meal was underwhelming. I order the filet mignon off the prix fixe and it wasn't seasoned and our meals were room temperature. The wait staff never asked if we wanted a second drink and the salads were lackluster. It's beautiful, but not at all worth $90/pp.
The Metuchen Inn is a long time gem in the Borough and is really the only true "fine dining" experience in a town with many exceptionally good and varied eating places. Drinks are well crafted, the menu always has interpreting and varied items,the food is well prepared and service is excellent. It's a Metuchen tradition and with good reason. I always look forward to a return visit.
An early Valentine’s Day dinner. We were warmly greeted on arrival. Our coats were taken and we were immediately shown to our table. It was not crowded so we had a very leisurely dinner. The lobster bisque was very good, as always. My companion had the short ribs and I had the venison special. Both were tasty and done properly.
Just a night out with my wife.
I have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years and the food is the best I've ever tasted.
The service is usually very good. Ambiance varies from cozy to noisy, depending on the crowd and night of the week. A three course meal with a bottle of wine will run you over $200, but the experience is well worth it. A great place to treat that special someone in your life to a birthday dinner. Trust me- you'll love this place!
Wonderful food and service. Staff goes out of their way to make your dining experience memorable.
Excellent food and service
The food was excellent the service was fine. The atmosphere was great until it started getting crowded. After that It was very noisy.
Excellent service, excellent food!!!lovely atmosphere!!!
Excellent food,excellent service, very welcoming atmosphere for our little baby!!!!really enjoyed our dinner!!!
Wonderful ambiance, outstanding food..... a few issues need to be tweaked, such as getting rid of the diner pepper shaker when one requests pepper... at the prices for the meal invest in pepper grinders! Also if food has to be packaged to take home , don’t use the cheapest take out containers... my container was crushed and rendered the contents inedible... I may as well have just tossed the $38 for the entree
Service was a tad rushed. We were there for an early dinner so may have wanted to turn table. I was a waiter/bartender in my youth, so I understand. Seated near in and out of kitchen not the best, though not terrible. The food was excellent, if a bit pricey. We will be back. Quality of the food the reason.
Great food,freindly staff! Love the homemade cheesecake!
We had a wonderful meal! The food was fantastic and the service was great. The table next to us was too loud but that can happen anywhere! We highly recommend this restaurant! Finished the meal with Victor’s amazing cheesecake! Perfect!
This was my first time at the Metuchen Inn. I was celebrating my birthday with my family and couldn't have picked a better place. The food was delicious and the service was great. I would definitely choose this restaurant again for another special occasion.
We always enjoy our meals ! Love sitting near the fireplace, cozy atmosphere.
Always a wonderful dining experience. The food is excellent and Jose and Jose can’t do enough for their patrons. I am ready to go back as soon as I leave.
Our first visit here was an early Sunday dinner and there was already a nice crowd dining. Service was crisp and attentive. The menu choices were appealing and there were also attractive daily specials. We started with colossal sized shrimp in their shrimp cocktail and the lobster and potato soup of the day. Both were very good choices. Our main course selections were Diver Scallops and Osso Bucco, which were prepared and presented beautifully. Total pleasure and expect to return. Not a bargain, but not a surprise either.
Had a lovely lunch on Sunday afternoon with friends we hadn't seen in a long time. We were able to linger and have a relaxed meal . There was a birthday party seated near us and yet we were able to enjoy quiet conversation.
Very enjoyable experience overall. The service was excellent, the food delicious (something for everyone), and prices very fair for the value. We’ll be back!
Not Impressed:(. Been there before and it used to be better but this time it was a huge disappointment . $27 for a chicken with some potatoes that wasn’t even that warm?! Pretty locale but food is way overpriced and waiters a bit snooty:(
Meal/service was excellent. Only downside is the parking. It was a very cold night and we had to park on the street about a block away from the restaurant.
My wife and I had an excellent meal and our server John was very attentive. For an appetizer, I had the Lobster/Potato bisque which was one of the best that I have ever eaten. I was a bit disappointed that there was no lobster meat in the bisque but overall i would have it again it was that good. The lamp chops were also excellent.
This was our first visit. Food was good but felt it was overpriced. Good drinks & service was good.
Food and staff were outstanding! A must visit if you enjoy fine dining.
We had lunch at this restaurant. The service was a little slow. The food was good but the portions were small. It ambulance was very nice.
Outstanding. — everything was fabulous! Service, food and ambiance. Had a great time.
