Our family has been going to Mill Pond for over 15 years. The service, food and ambience is consistently excellent. Dinner on the patio is delightful!

We had an engagement / graduation party with both families. It was great. The service was excellent as always and the food was perfect - everything from the sushi appetizers to the desert.

Thank you for making our special day even more memorable!

Very disappointed
Have been happy in the past
Service was too rushed
Got the feeling they wanted us out fast
Horrible for a real “dining” experience
Not relaxing
Big disappointment especially for a Saturday night!
Will not return and will tell others not to go on a Saturday nite

Very good restaurant. Everyone ate everything and enjoyed it. The wine was good and we were not rushed. However, it was a Saturday night and it was very crowded. Although, as I said we were not rushed, I sometimes got the feeling that the waiters were moving quickly. Maybe just me but as I said this is a very good place and we will go back.

We tried this restaurant on Valentine's Day and came away thinking it wasn't as good as we expected based on some of the reviews, so we tried it again this week on a normal weeknight. The view is great --- the Centerport eagles gave us a couple of passes! My wife liked the sushi dish we ordered as a starter, but overall the food, again this time, was OK. We've had better in other local places. The service is slow, which is odd considering how many people they have working the floor, but maybe it's by design on a mid-week weeknight to allow diners to take their time. The kicker, though, was dessert. We ordered coffee and one of their desserts ... the dessert came, but the coffees never did. Which is odd for a couple of reasons ... the person who actually took the order and didn't see the coffees on our table might have asked about it. Or any of the other servers might have asked as well, because how often do you see someone get dessert (a crumb cake) and NOT get coffee with it? They have no problem asking you if you want another beer or glass of wine, but no check-ins about the coffee. And then the coffees were on the check ... which we brought to their attention, and they made a nice gesture by also removing the dessert.
Anyway, I'm not sure we would go back, but to sit out on the back deck on a warm night is a nice treat.

Service was polite and friendly but disorganized. Some dishes were unavailable. Food was good but not exceptional. Felt rushed about the appetizers. They kept coming and asking in a way that implies we were taking too long or shouldn’t want to finish. Like “are you finished or do you really want those last two pieces of calamari”. Makes one feel like keeping our last piece of the dish was somehow inconveniencing them or somehow not expected. I was also surprised they didn’t ask if we wanted anything wrapped when they cleared the plates. We would likely have said no, because of the distance we traveled to get there. How wet, I still found it odd that the server didn’t offer. Overall good but because of the expectations and the price, I couldn’t give it five stars.

I normally love mill pond, but the food was terrible! Sushi was falling apart, muscles were way overcooked and flavorless, fish was overcooked. I had been raving about the restaurant to my friends and was embarrassed when they finally came and suffered through the poor meal.

We needed a table on the main floor as we were with a handicapped person. The table that was reserved for us was upstairs on the second floor This was not acceptable and the manager was rude in handling the situation. We were finally able to put a few tables together in the bar area (our idea—not the idea of the staff as they only offered to cancel our reservation) but by that time what started out as an enjoyable special evening turned out to be just another dinner because of the mood swing brought on by the manager.

The food was absolutely amazing. We had blue point oysters, the baked clams. (Use a spoon to ladle the sauce into them and use the cocktail fork to pull them. They’re to die for. And the scallop appetizer special. My date had the pan seared salmon which she was craving since the last time she had it. It was the reason for our return trip. I had the boneless short rib which was spectacular. The beer list is short but fitting for the menu served. The wine is a better pairing most times anyway. Our waiter was super attentive and the food came out one at a time in perfect succession. Everything was piping hot as it hit the table. Perfect execution. Our waiter, the neighbors waitress and the manager checked on us in a regular basis. A fantastic restaurant and an incredible meal. Wish I could afford to do it more often.

Mill Pond house never disappoints. Great food and ambiance. Inside is quiet and elegant and outside has the gorgeous view of the pond and in our case a beautiful sunset. Excellent Menu and wine list. I had the sole Roberto which was cooked to perfection; light and very tasty. We shared the Artisnal Cheese Board which had excellent complimentary flavors. This is a place we frequent and is always consistent with service and food.
