Had a wonderful anniversary dinner. Tuna/crab tower appetizer delicious.
"Champagne" brought at end of meal was not very good, not drinkable. Nice gesture, though.
We love the METUCHEN INN.. food is great.. staff is wonderful.. the owner checks on every table to insure everyone is happy... and there is so much history there..
Always a great meal and experience. Fantastic staff and wonderful food & wine offerings. One of our top 3 local restaurants.
Bill, the waiter, was excellent . We are outside and we’re very comfortable with the tent and fire pits / heaters. Food was very good but the service really carried the day.
A bit disappointing this time out. Meals are usually superb. This time I ordered a 16 oz ribeye priced at $44.00. Lots of fat and grizzle and very tough. Not what a prime cut of meat should be. My wife’s pasta dish was “ok”. Ate about half of it. Service was great as always.
The ambiance was great, the food was exceptional, and we felt safe!
Food was very good and management was pleasant. Poor server had too many tables. Once order was put in for each course, the kitchen was quick to the table. The server was literally running in the restaurant to do her job which we felt bad for her. Don’t know if it is the shortage of people wanting to work or poor planning from management. Calamari was excellent and filets too. Cinnamon ice cream was way way too strong. Tasted like a stick of big red chewing gum! Stay away!
Nice ambiance for outdoor dining area . Delicious food with spectacular presentation as always. We had a whole branzino and a branzino filet. Both were excellent! Highly recommend Metuchen Inn.
Service was mediocre and was not wowed by the food. I don’t mind spending money on good food so will not be returning.
Very reassuring about Covid safety. Explained all the precautions they are taking. Service and food was very good.
It was my birthday, and I had wanted to try this restaurant for the longest time. They are one of the few that actually serves foie gras!
From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. We ordered a pitcher of Sangria.
We had the octopus salad, a dozen oysters, and the foie gras as our appetizers.
Our waiter Mark recommended the duck special, which I had. It was a perfect medium rare. My husband had the boneless short ribs. they had the fire tables lit, and we didn’t feel rushed. We enjoyed a slice of cheesecake with our cappuccinos. it was a wonderful evening all in all.
I’m looking forward to going there again.
Perfect night for dining outdoors. The panzanella salad was excellent. Halibut special was ok. Sauce was not especially flavorful. Desserts were excellent. Bread pudding and chocolate lava cake.
Service was top notch and we felt safe.
Outside dinning due to covet. Surroundings perfect. Food excellent. Only semi-negative: I had the impression the wait staff would have preferred that we leave a little sooner, as they all were cleaning up eagerly. (I was 3:15, so they may have been preparing for the next sitting, but...)
Our entrées were absolutely delicious, and still recommend. Be prepared for an "upscale price".
Service was excellent by our server Julio.. The menu selection provided great choices for all in our party and the food was excellent! It was a beautiful night so we chose to dine outside. We were all very comfortable despite the cool evening with the outdoor heaters provided. All in all a great evening and we will definitely be back.
Even with the pandemic occurring, the Metuchen Inn still makes dining a special occasion. We had A wonderful time. They just installed outdoor heating lamps for the cooler weather.
Evening was great. Celebrated our wedding anniversary and staff did a great job helping us celebrate it. Food and service was outstanding
We enjoyed the night tremendously. The place felt very safe and the service excellent. The lights made it warm and inviting. Will be back
We were celebrating our anniversary. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The service was excellent. The food was excellent and prepared exactly as requested. The outdoor seating was pleasant and organized in a manner in which you did not worry about potential exposure to COVID from other patrons. Our experience was excellent.
The food, as always was fabulous. The service left something to be desired. I was the only person waiting to be seated and there were a couple of empty tables. Several staff walked past me as I stood at the check in desk - waiting. After I was seated, no one came to offer me a menu or take my drink order for more than 7 minutes. An older gentleman (whom I presume to be the opener) noticed and called a waiter over. I was given a dinner menu and ordered app, dinner and a drink. After I had already ordered another waiter came over and gave me the Specials menu. Needless to say, I was a bit annoyed because the lobster potato bisque sounded delicious! As I waited for my appetizer - no one offered me bread. I had to stop someone and ask for it.
I’m very surprised because I have dined here many times over the years. Hopefully this was a one time fluke. The food is to die for!
Had an outside lunch with girlfriend on patio. The service was, as usual, outstanding and lunch was delicious. There was a small party of some sort in the tent but we didn't hear it.
Outdoors and under cover. Comfortable with fans blowing a soft breeze. Food and service were great, as always
Great Job on the outdoor dining!! Our server George was outstanding. Was very attentive and safe at the same time. Thank you for your continued high standards during this trying time.
Had an excellent anniversary meal. The service and food were great. The champagne and ice cream was a very nice added touch.
The appetizers were fine but the entrees took a long time to arrive, were not prepared as requested and were lukewarm.
We love to celebrate special occasions here. Jose is so welcoming and makes each guest feel like a VIP. Their tent is great as we were totally protected from the thunderstorm and monsoon floods rain that evening. You have to expect a bit longer time to receive food than before. We started with steamed clams which were nicely garliced. Entrees were salmon and halibut. The fish was very fresh and perfectly cooked.
Metuchen Inn has always been wonderful, so no surprise, they have done a great job with outdoor, socially distant dining. Thanks for our first date night out in a long time!
Always a great meal at the Metuchen Inn... it is a team effort and the owner is never more than a few feet away to ensure that everything is impeccable.
We loved the Metuchen Inn!
Great service ,food was amazing one of my favorite restaurants
Food, service and outdoor seating all very good. Only disappointment was souffle dessert which was supposed to take 20 min but came out right away, probably not homemade....
It was our first time here, it was a great dining experience, the food was excellent and the servers were friendly and attentive. The outdoor dining was social distanced properly. We will return
Been here a few times when we were allowed indoor dining. Was very good and service was good. Just went on Saturday, They called and pushed my resv back to 7:30. That was not a problem, got there and did not get seated to almost 8;00. Server came over read us the specials, then took our order and that was the last we saw of him till desert time. Never got water for the table, had to aske for bread. After 40 minutes of waiting had to ask where our App's were. Wanted another drink no one was coming by to flag down. Got dinner and told the food runner to send anyone over to service us. That took like 10 minutes. The two people , who looked like the owners were more concerned with the regular customers then anyone else. No one ever asked how our food was and if there was anything else we needed. Thank God food was good or I would of got up and walked out. When I voiced my displeasure to the server when he finally came back, I got a ton of excuses and a confused look like I was crazy.
Will not be going back to there any time soon. Much better place to enjoy outdoor dining that care for all of their customers.
Never disappoints. Love how they accommodated our door dining. Menu is fabulous too!
Excellent service very professional Jose the best. Excellent food. Grilled shrimp Mozambique...good atmosphere...100% recommended
Excellent food service and cocktails as always. Among the best restaurants in New Jersey
Lovely outdoor setting, good apps, but disappointing entrees, which were also relatively expensive.
I loved the halibut special and the clams appetizer was delicious . My friend enjoyed the filet mignon and we both thought the bread pudding dessert was the best we ever had . The restaurant did a great job on making the outdoor dining beautiful and well covered just in case there is bad weather . The service was excellent as well .
