    We enjoyed your refurbished dining room and the beautiful dishes now being used. Our pumpkin bisque, turkey dinner and dessert were scrumptious!! We left with huge leftovers!!! Our server was attentive and friendly. We will be back soon!

    The food was great and the service was excellent. Would be nice if they had a drink/cocktail menu. The ambiance was pretty plain and at the time we were there, there was a large group and the room decor didn’t do much to mute it. Overall though, it was a good experience and I would eat there again.

    Limited wine selection. No top shelf liquor options. No cocktail menu. Food was good but felt like catering food not restaurant food. Was alright.

    When we walked in you could smell mold in the lobby area. The restaurant seemed outdated. The food was mediocre at best. The service was good. Thought it was odd that there was only four tables taken on a Saturday night

    My husband and I decided, spur of the moment, to go to the Nutmeg Restaurant on route 5 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a 12:30pm reservation but we did not need it. There were only a couple other diners there at that time. Brian was our waiter. A soft spoken older man said he’d been there for almost 20 years. Let me tell you he knew his stuff. He answered any questions we had and then ordered our meals. My husband had one of their Oktoberfest meals Hunters Veal and I had the stuffed fillet of sole. Both were fantastic. Long story short we will be returning often. It’s worth the trip to experience a wonderful meal, attentive waitstaff, in a relaxing setting.

    The Nutmeg has been a favorite of ours, a place for birthdays, anniversaries etc. It was my wife's birthday this time, but it was very disappointing. She ordered the sea scallops which turned out to be over-the-hill and tasting of ammonia. I had the sliced pork tenderloin which was OK, but not the knock-out delicious that I had expected. The cup of clam chowder I had, on the other hand, was just that, the high point of the meal for me. In summary, I'm not sure that we'll go back to the Nutmeg, perhaps in a few months just to give it another chance....

    Lovely evening, food was excellent and services was friendly and attentive without intrusion. The décor moderate to minimalist and didn't marry well with the quality of the menu (in our humble opinions). Aside from feeling like it was a banquet room rather than a dining room, everything else was excellent and we'd recommend and will be going again.

    First time here. Was excited to try the calamari from the menu listing it was served with melted Gorgonzola. It came without any cheese and we asked so they brought it back and came back with crumbled Gorgonzola on top. Again asked as the menu stated melted Gorgonzola on top. They said they don’t melt it because it makes the calamari soggy. The food was ok, not great. Somewhat disappointed but may try again to see if it was an off experience.

    The clams casino, rack of lamb and scallops were outstanding. The restaurant was perhaps understaffed which explains the slow service at first. Once guests at a table or two left the dining room, our waiter was able to be a little more attentive, and our entrees came out with no delays. The menu choices are plentiful and varied, and the quality has always been excellent. The prices are definitely higher, but it’s the case everywhere and to be expected. Hopefully, the staffing shortage can be rectified in the future, and I hope the restaurant has a busy spring/summer season. I’m sure I’ll be dining at the Nutmeg again soon.

    We wanted to treat a friend to a nice dinner the night before our flight out of Bradley Airport. Nutmeg is ten miles away. A quiet, elegant place with linen tablecloths and good variety, Nutmeg met our needs perfectly. We splurged on the rack of lamb, which was prepared to perfection, and our guest chose bass. The place was not crowded, and for some reason a few children chased one another around, but in general it was a perfect place and the cook made sure that our meal was gluten-free. Thank you!

    In 15 min. someone took our drink and app order. 45 min. later they arrived. Then they took entire order. I had a show to go to at 9. Food showed up 8:20. Had to take to go. 2 1/2 hours and all I had was a bowl of soup. ON VALENTINES DAY! I was embarrassed.

    I would say horrible at best. We went here for Valentine’s Day dinner. I used to come here all the time as a kid and loved it but was very let down by my recent experience. We were there almost 2 and a half hours because they took so long to take our order. Then we got our food and the sides were cold as well as the main entree. I will not be going back, save your money.

    My husband and I went to dinner for a combined celebration of New Year’s Eve and for being together for 7 years. We chose the Nutmeg because they didn’t do a prixe fixe menu like many other restaurants do on NYE (my husband can be VERY picky and we often find that prixe fixes are a waste of money for us). Our server was absolutely outstanding. He was quick and attentive and made us feel like we were guests in his home. The food was absolutely delicious, I had the land and sea, which was a steak and baked stuffed shrimp, and my husband had a filet. Everything was cooked to perfection. We also shared a piece of chocolate mousse cake, which they cut in half and put on our own plates. It was absolutely delicious. It was our first time eating here, but we will definitely be back!

    Brian our waiter was basically handling the main dining room alone due to waitstaff calling out. Somehow, this dynamo magically handled 4 large parties and tables of 2's seemlessly. The kitchen staff had a wedding reception going on, but didn't miss a beat in preparing perfectly cooked apps & entrees. We weren't in any rush, so the longer than expected wait times didn't bother us. It seemed that we all had the same reservation time and we enjoyed the time to relax.

    When your eleven year old granddaughter says "this was actually a wonderful experience" when she didn't really want to go, you know it is good. She said it was the best meal she ever ate and the chocolate cake was "superb". She also insisted we leave the waiter a big tip because he was so good. She left him a thank you note with her own tip on top of the tip I left.

    Started with warm crusty rolls to dip in roasted garlic olive oil. Clam Chowder was luke warm and overly salty, whereas hubby's Lobster Bisque was hot and full of lobster meat. Our entrees - Baked Stuffed Shrimp and Salmon Oscar were delicious and filling so we opted to skip desert and coffee. Service was great but we weren't happy that with a room with lots of empty tables they placed us next to a large boisterous party and then prior to us finishing, people directly behind me (within 3').

    Nice ambiance and good food, but service was only so-so. My partner was late for our meal and the waiter literally let me sit at my table for over 25 minutes without coming over once! (Not even to check and see if I wanted to order an appetizer, drink or anything!) When he did he came over, it wasn't to take my order for an appetizer, it was to ask in a non-friendly way, "is the other person coming? Cause we're about to close." Wow! Don't think we will be returning.
