We have tried numerous appetizers and entrees at the New Mill and all have been absolutely top shelf . The filet mignon is incredible , it was cooked perfectly rare as requested and so tender we could have cut it with a butter knife ! Service is fantastic, , nicely timed so we were not rushed , even on Valentine's Day and enjoyed a nice leisurely dinner. Wonderful restaurant !!

Great atmosphere. Attentive service but never felt rushed. The pork chops and lobster crusted cod were delicious. We had a great table downstairs by the fire. It was a little loud , making it difficult to hear across the table with a big party. But overall would highly recommend

We had a great time. The food was outstanding. We were there for a birthday dinner. Would recommend to my friends and family, we will return. I have already mentioned to my colleagues and we plan to have a company dinner there in near future.

Our first time at New Mill, we loved it. It was my husband's birthday. Each year we try to take each other for our birthdays to a place neither of us have been to, and this year I chose New Mill for his birthday. It was fantastic. It was still decorated for Christmas so all of the white lights made it look so pretty. We were informed they're coming down this week so it will be interesting to see what it looks like without all of the Christmas lights. Food was great, lots of great dishes from which to choose. Service was great. We are definitely going to go back!

Food was good for southington. A bit pricey for what was offered. Wait staff was ok. I didn't need someone to pout olive oil on a plate for me. Waitress forgot out bread and i had to ask for it. I had heard rave reviews so i was a bit disappointed

Our apps and cocktails were delicious. My wife’s dinner, not so much.

My wife ordered the chicken Marsala and was disappointed. Our server said our dinners were ready and she was going to get them. Twenty minutes later our dinners arrived. My guess is the dish had been sitting in there for a bit and the chicken had dried out, the mashed ootatoes were watery and flavorless and the veggies had been sitting in the marsala sauce so long they were mushy and unrecognizeable. She took three bites of the chicken and called it a day.

Chances are we would visit again, but most likely just sit at the bar, have a few cocktails and apps.

Excellent food, we have eaten here several times recently. This past night we were with friends celebrating the holidays. The New Mill was busy, the staff was friendly, attentive and polite. We all had the special Black Sea Bass, the fellows asked for a different vegetable, no cheese on the salad and the other asked for no potatoes but extra vegetables. No problem, very accommodating.
The decorations were festive but not over the top. We sat near a fireplace.

We try to get to New Mill at least twicw a year and one of those must be during the holidays when it is decorated for the winter holidays ... beautifully done! We ordered both off the menu and from their nightly specials .... none of our party was disapponted at all. In addition to the atmosphere and tasteful food, the service was delightful and met our needs perfectly ... great wait staff!!

Although we came on a Tuesday night, the place was packed. It was hard to find a parking space. Inside, we found a noisy, crowded atmosphere with tables so close to one another it was hard to walk through the rooms. Although our table was in a private alcove, it was off the bar, where people were drunkenly loud. My wife's steak was too fatty and she stopped eating after a few bites. My pork chop was tasty and I enjoyed the vegetable sides. We were celebrating an anniversary and hoped for a quieter atmosphere. Prices were on the high side. It was our first time at this restaurant, and it will also be our last.

Had our thanksgiving meal here.all in our party ordered turkey dinner .the turkey was tasteless, dry and overly salty as was the gravy. All of the accompanying sides were good especially the stuffing and rolls that were delicious...it's a shame that the turkey ruined our meal.our server joy was a delight and the atmosphere was very festive if not just a tiny bit too noisy...I would not recommend or ever come again because the turkey was the most important part of this meal and on that, the new mill failed miserably.( please advise your chef to not be so heavy handed with the salt.)

As always the service and venue was great. Unfortunately, I found bones in my cod and that was unpleasant and effected my enjoyment of the meal as a whole. It should be stated that this was the first negative occurrence I've had with my dinner preparation (I've dined here numerous times over the last several years). Historically, my experience with the menu and its preparation are fantastic.
