Food has changed . Pasta was mushy, tomato sauce was flavorless. Pricey for portion size. Chef preparations not appealing.

Had a bit of a delay getting our table (I think they forgot that we were waiting at the bar), and the service that evening was generally slow, with multiple servers. Not too much of an issue, as the food was excellent and worth the wait.

We are usually ver happy with the Montville Inn, but this last trip was not good.
The service was not great, we waited for our server for anything we wanted.
The food was not as great as usual as well.
We will probably go back, but not for a while.

The food was very good and the wait staff and management were very pleasant and accommodating. They were very busy and we had to wait a little while for the second cocktail but nothing terrible. I would definitely go there again. Portion size very good. Ate half of my meal and took half home.

Food is inconsistent from visit to visit. Very salty and just not good. I had crab cakes loaded with salt, very bad. Also ordered the sword fish special which was raw in the middle and loaded with seasoning spices that hid the flavor of the fish.
We have been to the Montville Inn many times and is hit or miss depending on what you order.
This was the last straw. Not going back for dinner.

I have been there before and it was much better than their Wed. night pasta night. Their pasta was mushy (think it was reheated a few times) and the meatballs were hard and not good. I left most of the plate and was hungry when I left. If you have a special pre-fixed meal, it should be as good as your regular menu meals.

The Montville Inn is very consistent in the quality of their delicious food. The ambience is cozy, and the staff is very friendly. Jen keeps on top of things, and makes us feel so welcome, and the service is great. The servers are friendly and professional. Love The Montville Inn.

Have been to this restaurant many time even since the change in ownership. Very disappointed. Everyone food tasted like one thing. Garlic. And that was for fish, chicken or duck. All tasted like garlic. The wait staff was invisible. Even the coffee was cold. Too bad, used to be a great place.

Food was excellent. Many, creative options. Food runs the gamut from pasta to red meat to fish. Good wine list. Server was attentive, food arrived as ordered etc. Atmosphere is casual, but white tablecloth. Good place to go for quiet conversation. Highly recommend.

We had the Wed night pasta special. Soup or salad plus main for $16. I had linguini and clams. I told server I did not like spicy but it did come with lots of red pepper. Staff was great and my dish was remade in no time and was very good. 1/2 price bottle of wine a great buy also. Charming decor. Our waiter, Sean, was great.

We went to Montville Inn for the 4th time, and this was the best visit overall. Introduced our friends to the restaurant for the first time and they really enjoyed it. I love the inn and the feeling is cozy and casual. The food was delicious even a simple Greek salad was fresh and flavorful! The eggplant stack, the Mahi fish special and grilled salmon exuded many flavors both spicy and savory. Plus my drink of choice was made to the "T". Perfect night with friends and service was friendly and accommodating.
Even when a dish was brought with dairy (and I have a dairy intolerance) they recognized it without having to be asked to fix. They quickly remade and swapped it out!!! I would recommend The Montville Inn any time of year!

The Montville Inn is always a satisfying experience. We decided to go and have a relaxing dinner and that is just what we had. The pear martini's were a perfect start to our lovely evening. The dinners were perfectly cooked and delicious! I would recommend this restaurant for any and all occasions!

Went for lunch midweek with a large group of friends. Mostly Italian, however also had other options and sandwiches.
Waiter was friendly and attentive, however even though not crowded, took a long time for food to arrive. Maybe understaffed for that time, not expecting many people?
Anyway, it's a warm atmosphere and would be good for a date, birthday, anniversary, etc.
Would definitely go again.

I don't need the waiter to be my friend rather recognize his job and be attentive and considerate to his guests and the offering. He couldn't fill a water glass, recall in a party of just 4 who ordered which offering, and then presented a visually overcooked meal. All this for unsatisfactory and rather costly meals. Not anytime soon again for me.

Have frequently dined here for lunch, but this was our first dinner. Dined on a Wednesday evening and we were thrilled to find out it was "Wine Wednesday" with a nice selection of wines at HALF PRICE. It was also 'pasta night', with great entree options with salad for only $16! Service was EXCELLENT -- thank you Sharon!

I've eaten here about 7 times and it is always good. I am sad they no longer have the gnocchi I loved so much, but they have great food. The ambiance is quaint and the service is very good. I'll always return to this spot even though it's 30 miles from me.

Two of us had the pork chops stuffed with goat cheese and cranberries.....wow, best I've every had. We also had escargots, delicious and the amazing asparagus Milanese. I've had it before and had it in mind ever before we arrived. The server was very friendly but not hovering...just perfect. A great night, we really should go more often.
