Had an excellent meal at the Milton in. We sat in the C. 1740 lounge this time to try the small plates menu. We were very happy with our choice and will probobly sit there from now on. The oyster stew was fantastic.

My party of three, for a business dinner, decided to choose many small plates for our dinner. I am a fan of small plates as it is fun to try other things and I never feel as full. The food was so disappointing....ugh. The lobster mac and cheese was dry, the beef tenderloin was tough, and the crab cake was disappointing. My salmon with risotto and mushrooms was so bad I ate only one bite. The salads were fine and the desserts were good.....and the wine was tasty. I appreciate the small plate effort but if you are going to do it....get it right. In addition, we asked for the paneled room with the FP, adjacent to the bar area, and we did'nt get it, with no explanation offered. The service was very good....wonderful, attentive waiter.

My partner and I hosted three clients. The food and ambiance was excellent and the pastry chef made us a special St. Patrick's birthday cake to celebrate the amazing fact that four of the five of us were born on St. Patrick's day. Would definitely want to return. Everyone raved about the food and cake. Bottom line--everyone had a great time and thanked us afterwards.

Our latest visit was for lunch to celebrate my husband's birthday. The restaurant is an hour and one half from our house but it was worth the trip. The menu was varied and it made choosing an entrée difficult, a good problem to have. We all were extremely pleased with our choices and we all cleaned our plates. The service was attentive but not oppressive, quick but not rushed. We look forward to going back in a few months.

Dined on a recent Sunday afternoon. Our server, Sharyl, greeted us warmly upon arrival and was consistently attentive and professional throughout the evening. Whereas I was mildly disappointed upon hearing that cream of crab was not available, my NY strip "Oscar style" made up for this with a perfect cooked to order steak and some of the largest chunks of crab I've ever seen. My wife's lobster dish was excellent but the side crab cake was only average. The otherwise relaxing ambience (classical music as backdrop) was challenged at one point by an overly ambitious busboy who decided to fill glasses with ice using a very large and noisy water cooler container rather than taking the extra step to take the glasses out into the adjoining bar area for filling. Similarly, seating patrons right next to one another when the dining room has lots of open seating is a practice I wish would be more thoughtfully considered. In summation, a nice evening but with some missing touches.

Very disappointed. We went expecting this to be a special experience considering the reputation. First, we arrived on time for our reservation, but we were told that they weren't seating that reservation time slot yet. They took us to our table 20 minutes late without an apology or explanation even though there were many empty tables. After being seated for 10 minutes, our waiter still hadn't come to greet us. We had to ask for him. He was very nice and personable, and he said that my friend's request for the sauce on the side with her entree would be no problem. It did not arrive that way and even though I encouraged her to do so she felt uncomfortable saying anything. The food itself was good, but in no way worth the price. We will not be returning.

Oh my goodness their new menu is outstanding!!! Don’t order the curry unless you like items spicy hot. I got the catfish and it was delicious!! They still have the old standbys (lamb and tenderloin with imperial crab) but the new menu items were intriguing and delicious. It’s been a long timing coming! So glad we tried it again.

At one time our favorite for special occasions. On this night they were short two wait staff and service obviously suffered, though the gentleman working our table was outstanding, you can only do so much. Food was good, but when you consider the price you expect outstanding, which it was not, as opposed to other visits. Of course many have experienced Milton Inns ups and downs, we hit a lower point. Will we be back? Yes, but a second consecutive poor/weak experience will be our last.

The food is always wonderful. My only issue is that I ordered a bottle of one of their March wines which was advertised at $36, but I had to pay $48 because I used a Groupon. There wasn't any indication that the price was a sale, only that the wine was being featured fr the month. $48 for a bottle of La Crema Chardonnay is vey expensive.

The food was average, below what I would expect of a restaurant of this quality. The service was slow and while attentive, neither intuitive nor solicitous. the menu itself was, in my mind overpriced. The lowest entree was $40, not unreasonable in a good restaurant, but for here the prices did not equal an excellent meal.

It’s been a few years since dining at the Milton Inn and always had good experience. Was looking forward to taking family. But was really disappointed. Toasted French bread slices that came with appetizers were over toasted and really hard. They forgot asparagus that came with two dishes and when they brought them, there were two skinny, skinny spears. The Lobster Mac n cheese was a very small portion, accompanied with nothing. Wasn’t busy but had to ask for drink refills and then had to wait—think she forgot. Over all it wasn’t the great experience I was expecting. Hopefully it was just an “off” day because in the past it was truly wonderful.

While our meal was good, the single crab cake for $32 was not great. My friend had the braised short rib and liked it. We had tea and water and one small dessert. Our bill was $90. That’s ridiculous for what was served, and no starter, nor alcohol.

Made reservation a week in advance.
We were sat in the very back of the restaurant very small room with a party of 6 and one other couple.
The conversation of the 6 top was loud and offensive.
The service was ok but not what you would expect with fine dining. When I inquired about only having a valentines Day menu because I saw the regular menu online. I got no response.
The cocktail drink list was very over priced. And mostly whiskey base with no options for my wife.
The food presentation was excellent, but the spice level of the seafood dish was way too spicy.
We finish with out dessert because of the small room conversation of the 6 top.
When we went to the Bar the bartender seemed pre occupied with the conversation of other staff members.
I inquired about some Japanese whiskey. Said she didn’t have any. Then found a bottle. I asked how much it was. She didn’t know. Threw out a general price after I told her what some other places charge for it.
So I opted not to get it.
I have spent the 20 yrs in the Restaurants in Washington DC. And I had high hope for this one. I was sad to have such a not so good experience.
I guess I was looking for feel good experience.
I am sorry to say that wasn’t worth the price I paid for dinner.

Beautiful quaint restaurant away from the city. The service and the food was amazing. We had filet mignon with a crab cake and hollindaise sauce. Beyond delicious. The cream of crab soup was just as delicious. Our waiter was on par and very attentive. Serving size was just right. Desserts were ordered and taken home for later. Peanut butter cake was very rich and the portion is enough for two people to share. Highly recommend for that special occasion or event.

We made an early reservation the day before Valentine’s Day so the place was nearly empty. Began to fill up during our meal. Ambiance was what we were looking for and is great IF you like restaurants in older buildings like this . We do. Staff was very knowledgeable. Food was excellent but I would say on par with the $$. Wines selection was more than ample and prices were not a surprise. We would come here again on a special two or four person special event. Would like to come back in warmer weather!

This is the first time in many visits that I can complain. My side dish potato did not arrive until I was almost finished with the entree. I chose not to send it back (I love the Jack Tarr potato), and no offer was made to rebate the cost. I don't know if the kitchen or the server was at fault (I reminded the server three times that I was waiting). At a restaurant of this caliber - and prices - this is inexcusable. Other than this issue, dinner was up to the usual high standards.

Going on a Saturday night may have been a mistake. We had 8pm reservations but had to wait for 35 minutes before being seated. It then took quite a bit of time to initially get served. After the initial delay service and food was amazing. All in all worth the wait and the cost, but started off a bit rough. Next time will be on a weeknight.
