This was my first dining experience at the Montville Inn, & my wife & I had a wonderful visit. We were seated promptly at our reservation time, the service was wonderful & the food was quite good. I highly recommend it.

Calamari two ways is excellent. Chicken Murphy special was enough to bring some home for lunch. Mahi mahi slightly over cooked but still tasty. Noise level very high. Servers were pleasant. Just wish it was quieter.

Nice place with good service. We may have selected the wrong dishes, but one was from the daily specials, the food just wasn’t good. I was disappointed because it’s a cozy spot not to far from us and I thought I discovered a great new go-to Resturant.

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".

I love this restaurant, I've been there several times for lunch and dinner. This time there was so much salt on all four of our meals that we could not eat most of it. It was very disappointing.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
