Metuchen Inn staff was very friendly, personable and seated us upon arrival with our temperature checks. This is our 3rd dining visit in the past 5 months. The food was very well prepared with fresh ingredients and tested well. We had Calamari, Eggplant Rollatini, Oysters as appetizers, and all dishes were well seasoned and fresh. For the main course we tried, Rack of Lamb, Black Cod, and Oso Buco. The New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc paired well with these dishes. They were all delicious and sumptuous except the leg of lambs were only 4 instead of the normal 6 and not meaty.
For dessert, we tried Apple Straddle and was good.
Overall, the service was very attentive, the food delicious and we would definitely revisit for a special occassion.

What an outstanding restaurant! The food is the most important element, and it was creative, attractively presented and delicious. The service was impeccable and friendly. I can't wait to return myself and to being family and friends.

Easter dinner and a birthday celebration wrapped into one visit. This is our go to place for special occasions. The food is delicious but the level of service here is second to none. We are made to feel like valued customers, maitre’d Jose has a photographic memory for guests, their drink choices and favorite entrees as well. We shared shrimp cocktail to start and were pleased with the amount of horseradish in the sauce...we like some zip! Three of us chose the rack of lamb and one took the bronzino. Entrees were prepared perfectly and there were clean plates left. A lovely holiday dinner.

After many years, Covid delayed my dining for a year. I returned a few days ago and found everything improved. Mostly the owners and staff were magnificent.

The server completely messed up our order; we did not receive our two appetizers as the entrées came out right away and then they bought us a complementary shrimp cocktail.

Other than that, food and service was good.

We may not come back.

From appetizers to desserts, there wasn’t anything that we didn’t like, we just had to decide what we like the best. The calamari, lobster bisque soup, lamb, scallops and creme brûlée won our hearts!

Treating my friends to a special dinner.

Waitress was a bit stand-offish at first, but then became more hospitable when she returned with our cocktails. After that initial experience, we had a lovely evening!

The food was excellent but it ended up being a 2 1/2 hour dinner. Server disappeared at times and did not seem commensurate with prices. Could be great.

Seating perfect, ambiance perfect, service was great - a little sow but it didn’t bother us. Prices a little high, but considering everyone is trying to survive the pandemic, we feel fortunate to be able to go out to dinner! Will definitely visit again!

Went to the Metuchen Inn for my birthday dinner, and was very pleased. We had a table close to a fireplace which added to the ambience. The staff was courteous and professional. The meal was perfect from appetizers to dessert. I would absolutely recommend the Metuchen Inn.

Had a great Valentine’s Day menu. Seating was great. Plenty of distance between parties. Staff wipes down handrails before and after use.

Mushroom ravioli are tops. Everything was at an appropriate level of quality and the cocktails were on point.
