The Montville Inn Ratings and Reviews
We were there for a 7 pm dinner. The restaurant was about 3/4 full. Caesar salads were tasty and not overdressed. Rack of Lamb was cooked perfectly but a little over sauced and salty for me, but delicious none the less. Chicken Marsala was huge! And reported as perfectly juicy, lots of mushrooms and a good temp. The Cowboy steak for 2 was portioned for 1. 16 oz. Bone in. Reported to be a bit tasteless. Steak sauce fixed that complaint. Overall a nice evening.
Haven't been to the Montville Inn in over a year and a half. My last few experiences there were not good. However, a friend informed me that there was a new chef and the Inn was under new management. My friend and I decided to try it again. We were pleasantly and happily surprised. Our waiter, Anthony, was wonderful and very attentive. Our food was brought out in a timely manner, hot and very good. We are very happy that we tried the Montville Inn again. It's practically around the corner from our residences which is extremely convenient. We will be going back....a lot!
Experience started with a delightful hostess who was friendly and helpful. Then continued with the our server. He was wonderful, helpful, offered suggestions, checked in with us and anticipated our needs. All things that might be expected but usually things that fall short. Food was good, atmosphere very nice and a convenient location for meeting friends. I'll be back.
I WANT to like this place given the proximity to my home. Unfortunately, the service and the food are not good. We had a 7:15 reservation and were seated immediately. Great! After ordering, we waited 45 minutes for our salads. They weren't as ordered but by then we were really hungry so we just picked off the things we asked not to be included. We both had dinner specials that were mediocre at best. The last time I was here, I was served raw chicken but really wanted to give it another try. Disappointing and apparently not just a "one-off".
There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. Two of us thought we were given too much food and had to take it home - which wasn't a bad thing but we both thought that the portions were too large so, perhaps, a bit off putting if you were not in the position of taking it home.
When we arrived we were seated at a "make shift" table in the bar, we asked to be moved and waited a few minutes for a regular table to become available. It was a lovely table but they forgot to assign a waiter to us - so we waited a little longer. Waiter was super polite and apologetic for situations that were out of his control. We modified some dishes and the kitchen messed them all up. One dish (pasta) came out 15 minutes before the rest of our meals. Hamburger was dry with stale bread. Owner/Maitre de came over to ask if everything was ok, while he clearly knew there was a problem and was hoping we didn't complain. It was a busy night so I would give it a second try on a less busy night with some bar food.
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!
