The meal and service were excellent and the ambiance should have been as well but it was a cold, rainy day and no one could get the fireplace to work. Most of the women in the restaurant had to sit with jackets on. Very disappointing considering the lunch for 4 was over $150.

Has gotten very pricy but the food quality has not kept pace. Filet had little taste; pork chop was difficult to cut. Oyster stew was good but the onions were "crunchy". Desert was great; wine was OK

My husband and I went to the Milton Inn for a romantic Friday night date night. The food was delicious, the service was attentive, and the table was perfect. We were seated at a table by the fireplace which was lit.

The ambience - beautiful and romantic, dimmed lighting but not too dark. Tables are a little crowded but spacing is adequate to carry on a relatively private conversation. Food is extraordinary. My husband had a steak. They cooked it perfectly. I had seafood which was cooked perfectly. This is a safe place no matter who you are with. You can get pasta (best risotto I have ever had), meat and vegetarian meals. They serve staples for those who are less venturous, and they also serve creative dishes for those who want something out of the ordinary. The wine list is fantastic and affordable. This is a must visit restaraunt and has to be put on your list. You won't regret it.

We were celebrating an anniversary, so flowers were ordered ahead of time and were waiting on the table for us. The waiter customized our dessert order and made it even more special. The food, service and ambiance were wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Except for one unmemorable meal, I have always found this historic restaurant to be one of my favorites. I was there about a month ago and the meal in front of me was so heavy-laden, it was a complete turn-off (and it wasn't that great). I had lunch there very recently and everything was great! I guess everyone has an 'off day' once in a while.

The meal was wonderful overall. We liked the fact that there was an "A la Carte" menu as well as the list of entrees. One of our party was a rather picky eater, so the "fancy" entrees were not appealing to him and he liked that he could just get a steak and side that he wanted. Service was very attentive but not intrusive. The only issue we had was that my wife's side of mashed potatoes came out literally cold. We let the server know, and he was very apologetic. They brought out a whole new entree, but unbelievably, even though the potatoes were not AS cold, they were lukewarm at best, which was surprising because the tops were browned. She didn't feel like waiting and just ate it. Little disappointing, thus the 4 star and not 5 star rating

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The atmosphere was perfect for an intimate dinner, soft candle light as twilight approached. The Wild Mushroom Phyllo was fabulous!! The NY Strip was cooked to perfection. The sweet potato mousse was very good. The cobbler was better than mom's! Definitely a great place for a special occasion!

Excellent meal, service and ambiance. My wife and I spent our 14th anniversary there and enjoyed everything. Some notes:
-The Venison was cooked perfectly(would order it every time I go), as well both risottos (risotti?)
-My wife's seafood medley (forget the name) was like none she's ever gotten before (crab,mussels,shrimp,rockfish over risotto)
-Moderately crowded on a Sunday night (no wait for our reservation, though)
-Jacket not required, but most men wore one
-Two separate rooms with dining...I'd ask for the back as there seemed to be a little less traffic through there

Great resturant. Warning to parents: this place is for grown-ups. I doubt if management would allow your two-year old to spoil other people's meals. If you can afford the place, you can afford the sitter. All was good. Drinks well stacked, good wine selection, food was well prepared, service was great.

The Milton Inn is my favorite restraunt. The food and service are superior. Our only complaint is the noise level, as the rooms are small and intimate and there are too many tables in a room. Most of the tables are for two people and that is quiet, but there is also one larger table (6 or 8) and they are too close to the other two-person tables. The trick is to ask for a quiet corner table and that usually makes it quieter. Last year, we actually had to ask to change rooms because the noise level was defening with a larger party that shouted across the table to each other. I noticed that the couple at one of the other tables right next to the larger party asked to change their table.

We mentioned initially the the room was very dark and the hostess offered a flashlight but never produced it. We were unable to read the menu. The main reason we selected the Milton Inn was for the ambiance and quality of food, but the ambiance was lacking.

We made a 7:45 reservation and were seated at 9pm. They had a wedding on the first floor and had obviously overbooked. There were many parties waiting over an hour for their tables and you would have thought they would have made some accomodation for all of us, but none. Offering some apppetizers while we waited, would have made the wait a little easier. By the time we were seated, all we wanted to do is eat and leave. It had taken all the fun out of the experience.

As always, we had to wait at least 1/2 hour for a table. This seems to be typical for week ends. The service we had was not the usual for the Milton Inn. Very slow. It seemed like someone had to go out and make the desert cakes!

My husband had the salmon rose appetizer which was delicious and nicely presented. I had the wilted winter greens salad which I would not recommend - lacked interest and really was not very good. It consisted of the wilted greens, thin julienne of apple and a rather non-descript dressing. We ordered a filet/crab special and the swordfish special served with steamed spinach and polenta which I asked to have the swordfish replaced with salmon. The salmon, spinach and sauce were delicious. The polenta which was coated with crumbs and fried was a disappointment both in preparation and taste. Desserts - creme brulee and macadamia cheesecake were both delicious, as well as the coffee. All in all it was a very pleasant experience.

This classy restaurant will remind you of days gone by when excellent service and exquisite food were the norm, not the exception.The pate appetizer on polenta was light and flavorful, the Bermuda triangle of a filet, lobster tail, and veal was lovely to look at and even better to eat, and the apple cobbler with warm caramel sauce was so good that we ate the extra caramel sauce with a spoon! My husband raved about the tender venison chops on risotto, and they were nice enough to substitute for the brussel sprouts baby green beans which he prefers. The diner's pleasure comes first here. The service was professional and unobtrusive. This restaurant, out in the scenic Sparks countryside, is a true gem, especially for a romantic & special meal.

Typical American/Maryland old fashion fine dining. Tavern type of fare but in old fashion classy ambiance. Huge portions, lots of fat and calories, an OK preparation/presentation and very little satisfaction in point of taste. If you are not familiar with modern cuisine, prefere quantity over quality of food and don't mind spending lots of money you will probably like it. But if you are looking for complexity in taste and creativity in preparation of dishes this restaurant will likely disappoint you as it somewhat did us (particularly for the price).

Traditional old Maryland restaurant experience. Portions were very generous and the menu would be familiar to those who have dined in the "big Baltimore" area restaurants of the past. Worth a trip to Sparks and the location is very easy to find. The service was very good with all of the suggestions from wine to entrees right on the mark.
