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.
I love the outdoor setting, I hope we never go back inside! Food is always outstanding
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.
Wonderful Easter dinner, great service!
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.
A wonderful dinner with husband and daughter. Server couldn’t do enough for us. Food was delicious. Our first time at this restaurant. Elegant and charming. Look forward to returning.
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!
Enjoyable outdoor dining for a date night with my wife .The food quality was exceptional, the service was very good , and the ambiance from the outdoor fireplace set the mood for a romantic evening. Highly recommended
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!
Excellent food, service and drinks. Beautiful ambiance.
This was our first time there and Everything we had was exceleent, as was the service.
Always enjoy dining here. Casual elegance, great food and presentation at reasonable prices. Various seating arrangements to satisfy everyone’s requirements.
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.
The food was excellent! The atmosphere was great!
Calamari, Short Ribs, Fig Bread Pudding...all exceptional!
Spectacular food and service. Would definitely return and highly recommend!
Metuchen Inn never disappoints! Great food & service!
Always a great evening. The food and service are always the best.
Excellent food and service. Fresh, delicious food with a very good wine list. We will be back to dine again!
Excellent meal from a creative menu.
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!
Excellent service and nice Friday night dinner. Tuna/crab tower was delicious.
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.
The food was AMAZING! This was my first visit and I’ll definitely be back. Mark made great recommendations for our meals. Can’t wait to go back!!
A new favorite....a pleasure all around. Looking forward to my next visit.
Food and service very good. Having half bottles of wine that we enjoy also a plus.

Truly a great dinner !!! went on a Saturday evening..Restaurant certainly had its 35%,however, tables were well spaced and all Covid protocols were followed. Service, ambiance and food was spot on..Winter menu was well constructed.. Highly recommend !
This is a great local Metuchen spot. The menu is diverse, the food is always good, great people there.
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.
Great place, kind staff! Larger parking lot would be appreciated.
Valentines Day dinner was excellent, 5 course pre-fix menu was extensive. Had the lamb chops and filet mignon, was amazing. Enjoyed it tremendously, will definitely be back.
We went for Valentine’s Day. It was a fixed price menu and was excellent.
Service was excellent. Bill, our waiter was pleasant and informative. The wine list is solid. The building is classy and conveniently located with ample parking.
Everything was great, from the amazing menu to the staff. A great place for a date. Even the owner came over to introduce himself. My waiter was great and attentive. Will be coming to this restaurant frequently after my 1st experience there.
Outstanding fare and service as expected. No need to go to that hole known as NYC for excellent cuisine.
