Sunday, April 1, 2018
We really enjoyed the delicious food, attentive staff, and ambiance. We also appreciated the ability to bring our own wine. Prices are a bit high.
Completely authentic country French bistro that I have frequented for thirty years. The escargot (very fresh) and homemade brioche are fantastic. Anything baked here is like something right out of a Paris bakery. The pates are all made in-house. We ordered the Pate Tasting as an appetizer and were very pleased. I enjoyed the braised rabbit for lunch and it was delicious. Rabbit takes a special touch to prepare and Spring Mill does it very well. My dining partner had the Steak Frites. Again, a very authentic dish. Few places serve the cut of meat as one would find in France. Salads are delicious and not overwhelming in size. Dessert? Oh, yes. Chocolate Mousse and Daffodil cake with a cup of cafe au lait or cappucino. While this was not today's trip for us, Sunday Brunch is divine and inventive.
Best food, my favorite place in the world! Can’t say it enough!
I brought my bridesmaids here to meet for the first time. The atmosphere was lovely. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. This gem comes highly recommended.
Such a great experience at Spring Mill Cafe! Hearty French country which is perfect for cold winter nights. But I've also been in the spring and their menu is perfectly tailored to the season. Highlights for me this visit were the cheese plate and the daffodil cake -- and the cappuccino was perfect as well. It was a catch-up of six friends and we had a wonderful experience.
Excellent country French food made with locally sourced food. Very fresh and VERY tasty!!
A friend and I had a wonderful dining experience; great service and good and wonderful opportunity for quiet conversation
The restaurant used to be a general store and has many of the original features. The farm to table food was excellent! The service was terrific! We were able to sit outside in February, what a nice surprise. I took my mother for lunch for her birthday. I will definitely be back!
My husband and I couldn’t get out on Valentine’s Day, so we decided to go the following day. I read the reviews about Spring Mill and decided this would be the perfect spot for a Valentine’s Day dinner. The restaurant is quaint, cute and I love the rustic feel. The food was good, but what outshined the food was the service. Our server was FANTASTIC! He was attentive, knowledgeable and just a nice guy. He encouraged my husband and I to try escargot, which I can definitely say I would never order for myself, but they were quite tasty, so glad he did that. Sadly, I forgot his name, but everyone at the restaurant was great.
P.S. The complimentary glass of wine was nice.
Food was superb and the service was excellent. Great atmosphere
Went for Valentine's day. They were very friendly and the food was very fancy. We did ask for special requests as my wife is pregnant and they catered very well by cooking various meats fully through. Would go again.
My wife and I lunched here for Valentine's Day and hadn't been here for over 20 years but had good memories of it which this experience did nothing to alter. Ambiance is rustic, subdued, quiet; food , delicious/rich; service, attentive but not intrusive.
A real gem! Food is wonderful and the setting cant be beat! French Country romance
Dinner with adult kids
While Spring Mill Cafe was good, it wasn't outstanding. We had the Octopus appetizer which wasn't great. My Scallops special was somewhat bland, as was my wife's Striped Bass. We're big fans of French Country food, but didn't really find it here at Spring Mill.
Service and ambience were excellent. We liked the cozy feel, the decorations, and the overall ambience.
overall review: good, not great.
Very good place for a quiet date night, food was delicious, and great service, would definitely go back
Spring Mill Cafe is legitimately our favorite restaurant. All of the waiters that we've met are so kind and knowledgeable about gluten-free options. My wife has coeliac and we always feel comfortable and understood.
The location is very quaint. Its inside an old house. Parking can be difficult. The inside was cute and enjoyable. The service wasn't horrible however they forgot my soup... I wasn't charged for it though. But no one said anything or apologized for forgetting it. The bread basket was delicious as was the cheese plate. Eggs Benedict was typical eggs Benedict. The restaurant seemed to get busy and the servers seemed frazzled. I would go back and try again though, def worth trying
First time at the Spring Mill Café! We loved it! I went with my brother and his wife and two close friends. Are meals were GREAT! I am gluten free and I had no trouble eating at this place.
We will be back for Sure!!
Wonderful preparation and nice presentation as always. This is convenient and quiet place for a business lunch.
We had a lovely corner table in the farmhouse to celebrate our 45th anniversary with our daughters. Service was attentive, but not suffocating- which I really appreciate. We each had a different appetizer and entree. Cheese plate was nice. My daughter enjoyed the pate. Best entree was the rabbit. My filet was a good piece of meat, perfectly cooked. However, the red wine bordelaise was watery and tasteless. Swordfish tasted old and over cooked. Duck cassoulet was just OK. Desserts ordered were the daffodil cake and creme brûlée. Both were disappointing. We had a great evening and loved the atmosphere, but the food was not what I expected.
We have been to the Spring Mill Cafe before and always enjoyed our meal. We had excellent service and very tasty food. We very much enjoy that the cafe is BYO so we can bring our own wine to go with dinner. I thought that the rabbit was especially delicious. Only one caution, don't let them seat you upstairs in the farmhouse building. That room is seriously lacking in ambiance. When the crowd started dissipating downstairs, they gave us a table there and free desserts.
What's old is new again at Spring Mill Cafe! My crab & asparagus salad was a beautiful & delicious winter metaphor....fresh green logs on a plate of snow :) My wife had the Moroccan shrimp appetizer, which is done with sweet potatoes, cumin & toasted almonds and is absolutely fantastic! Our main courses were both wonderful & clever twists on old staples. Although not vegetarian, we love rich and flavorful vegetarian dishes. For my wife, the mushroom bourguignon was irresistible. I had the rabbit, done this year (for the first time in my memory) with a prune tapenade plus mushrooms & potatoes in a red wine sauce. With a little ice cream for dessert, we left in our usual post-Spring Mill state of bliss. Although full to the gills, everything just happens as it should thanks to an owner and staff who simply get everything right!
My husband and I celebrated our tenth anniversary at Spring Mill Cafe. We live in Conshy but had never been there! Parking isn’t the best but once you’re inside it’s like you’ve been transported to a farmhouse in the French countryside. It’s small but cozy, not cramped. And quiet! The food was excellent - filet done perfectly and swordfish that melts in your mouth. Our meal was spaced out over a couple of hours, which is the pace I prefer for a night out and a good meal; it’s so much better than the typical rushed atmosphere in most places. I will definitely be returning!!
Client lunch. To start: Chicken liver pate & cheese plate (3 cheeses) with almonds, honey, & quince paste, both of which were excellent. Mains: Mushroom Bourguignon and a Moroccan shrimp salad, both superb. Service was friendly, knowledgeable & attentive without being obtrusive. Excellent value.
We were a party of five for an early “cold winter” Sunday dinner. One guest was a vegan and the restaurant accommodated her with a delicious entre. I had the sword fish with a light caper funnel butter sauce that I thoroughly enjoyed. My wife and two of our guests had the special Hamachi fish entre. All said it was cooked to perfection that they also thoroughly enjoyed. For desert, two of us had the “almost flourless” chocolate cake. The others guests had the daffodil cake, a light angel food cake. No one left a crumb on their desert plate.
There are no complaints with any of our dinner selections. Our complements to the chef! We shall return. A big plus for us in the restaurant’s BYOB policy. We always bring a bottle of a California chardonnay that our daughter introduced to us. The wine was from the winery of her business associate who owned a vineyard in Sonoma.
Overall experience great. Initially waitstaff were detached and not engaged. As our meal progressed the staff warmed up and attitude was no longer a distraction.
Spring Mill is one of the few places in the area that exceed at Foodpairing. If you enjoy nice conversation, appreciate good food and enjoy dining in a historical setting, this is for you.
This has been our go-to place for special occasions for years! Of course, we go when it's not a special occasion, too. It's always a delightful experience in every way. Thank you!
Spring Mill Cafe never disappoints! Great meal here again on Saturday pm-- food is always consistently good, service was excellent and the setting is perfect for a cold winter night. Highly recommend
Lovely evening in intimate setting. Would have liked to know that special was at a high price point. Chairs not comfortable.
Quaint restaurant with delicious food choices. Server was very attentive. Atmosphere was pleasant . Everything we tried was served hot and with good timing. I would recommend this cute spot to anyone looking for a quiet lunch or dinner with good food and service.
excellent in every way. I will return again.
What a local gem of a place!! So charming!!
Food was very good considering it was a holiday menu. Service was excellent. Would definitely return.
Always enjoy this French restaurant. In a rural setting that makes you feel like you could be in the French countryside. The food is very good. My favorite is the lamb chops and the pate. It is BYO, which reduces the cost somewhat, though it is moderate in price.
Fabulous food and service!
We loved the environment, the friendliness of the staff and the warmth of the restaurant. We were a bit disappointed in the NYE food. The cheese plate and dessert were highlights and fabulous. The lobster bisque was delicious but no lobster. The room temperature duck should have been warm. It felt like wedding style service where it was pre-prepped. The swordfish said saffron and capers on the menu, but was served with a dill butter instead. Additionally, we had to pour our own wine every time with included 20% gratuity. Overall, the $90 prix fixe was way too high of a price for what was delivered.
Best meal I had of the year and on Dec 29th that is saying something. Worth asking about prime table away from door/ traffic. That is something I’ll remember next visit.
