Plantsville's well-known Old Mill is now New Mill Restaurant, featuring the culinary talents of its new Executive Chef, Bob Martucci. This lovely 1737 cider mill has been a Connecticut favorite for many years, and has now completely renovated by its owners, Chris and Michelle Calvanese. Menu specialties include fresh-only seafood and raw bar selections, "chop house" Angus steaks, and homemade pastas and desserts. An expanded wine list and a large sociable bar round out the new offering.

Took out some clients and they were very impressed. I wanted to take them to a nice dinner to thank them for their business. They really appreciated it. If I am in the area with clients I will definitely be back.

kayla was wonderful and accommodating. my wife had a great birthday. The very back of the restaurant had an unfinished look about it (a dissasembled table stand next to ours in the corner with in-window air conditioners) not the most attractive spot but everyone had a great meal and the service was exceptional.

Everything was great. I only wish I had heard our server's name when she said it so I could actually mention it here. She was so friendly and so sweet. Very attentive and even the one time that we needed her but were in no actual rush another server who had a moment and saw our waitress was busy came to assist. It was simply to wrap up our food. The food was phenomenal and the portions are large enough for two meals. When the other server was assisting us she apologized for our waitress being busy (it was 8pm on a Friday of course she was busy) and I politely responded "it is no problem we are in no rush we are celebrating our wedding anniversary so my mom has the kids". After dropping our food back at the table this waitress mentioned my comment to our waitress. After our waitress took our dessert order, she brought it out with a candle in it to celebrate our anniversary and wished us a happy anniversary. Bill came and everything was correct and she gave us the dessert for free for our anniversary. The whole staff was great. The food was great and the ambiance is definitely perfect for a nice little date night.

Kayla waited on our table. She was a total delight as are all of the staff at the New Mill. They have the best steak in the area by far! Top quality food across the board. A great vibe any day of the week. The setting in an old 18th century cider mill cant be beat. A must visit for anyone looking for a new experience. Book tour table in advance as they always have a full house.

I hadn't been here in a long time, we went with family visiting from out of town. It was extremely loud! Food was okay, everyone at the table seemed to enjoy their meals, service was fair. Our server up sold the crap out of everything but then never came back to see if I wanted another drink...which I did. I tried getting her attention twice when she came by to see how everything was but gave up after that. I waited tables in an overpriced steakhouse for years...in fact most of the people at our table had worked in food service, so we get it. It was busy, she kept a smile on all night and was never rude or unpleasant, but ignored the empty glass in front of me and none of our water glasses were ever refilled.

Food was excellent! Waiter was very attentive (Nate). We asked to speak to an owner so we could let him know how much we enjoyed it. Our table was near the kitchen but was not a problem with traffic and noise.

Excellent wait staff and food was cooked perfectly. We asked for a private table to celebrate our anniversary and they tucked us way in a corner sheltered from most of the noise.

Food and service were wonderful! We sat in the large room and it’s not our favorite place to sit. Too big and not much ambiance. Prefer the porch area. Still, had a wonderful time getting together with friends for an excellent meal.

We decided to avoid the inevitable crowds that come with a Mother’s Day Brunch so we booked reservations for dinner on the Saturday night before M-Day. This was our first time at the restaurant. We were seated immediately upon arrival and no long waits before the food came to our table. We ordered a few appetizers and large salad for the table. Everything was superb! It melted in your mouth- even the bread and butter was above par. We ordered a combo of pasta and fish for entrees. All entrees were mouth watering. My son is an extremely picky eater and I asked if they could out together something specific for his needs and it was no problem at all. Prices were a bit high, however I’m a firm believer in, “you get what you pay for,” and this place delivered. Ambiance was rustic and charming however noise level was a bit high. I highly recommend coming here for a special occasion. Outstanding food!

When we first got there we were seated in the bar area and it was really noisy but we asked to move and the manager moved us without a problem. The waitress that we had was awesome. She answered every question and gave us great service. The food was awesome as well as the drinks. I would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant. Thank you
