WHILE THE ATMOSPHERE WAS FRIENDLY AND QUIET, THE SERVICE CORDIAL AND PROMPT, THE FOOD LEFT A LITTLE TO BE DESIRED. THE PUMPKIN RISOTTO WAS SENT BACK AS IT WAS NOT PREPARED TO REFLECT THE NAME OF THE ENTRE...IT WAS BLAND. TWO OTHER GUESTS ORDERED SWORDFISH AND ONE BEING AN AVID SALTWATER FISHERMAN SAW NO MARBLING IN THE FISH-COMMON TO THAT SPECIES. ALTHOUGH MY SALMON WAS TASTY, IT WAS RATHER DRY. DESSERTS WERE TASTY AND WELL RECEIVED.

Always a lovely place for dinner! The mussels and truffle fries are delicious and a great appetizer to share. The Cod with the crispy leeks is terrific. My husband enjoyed the pan seared scallops. The service is excellent and the staff is so friendly and helpful . We have been enjoying dinning here for many years and love to bring our children and grandchildren here.

We have enjoyed our meals here in the past, but this time we were underwhelmed. The lobster "bisque" was a watery soup with no discernible pieces of lobster. The horseradish crusted cod did not taste like it had any horseradish in it. The scallops did not have a very rich taste to them. The pork chop was tasted and liked by everyone. Our server was kind and patient with us while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive.

My husband ordered the lamb and cavatini dish. The meat was so salty that he could not eat it. I ordered the horseradish encrusted cod, which I have had there before. The fish was okay, but the crust was soggy and tasteless. The other times I've had this dish it was topped with onion straws that were very tasty. This dish had some unidentifiable things on top that looked like grass or weeds. They were not great.
So, all in all, it was quite a disappointing birthday dinner. I am in no hurry to return.

Attractive traditional restaurant, furniture and settings casual (the flatware needs an upgrade). A standard menu with some interesting variations. We did not have much luck on initial glasses of California Chardonnay and starters, but the entrees were excellent: perfect medium rare salmon over faro with sweet garnish and salt crusted cod also cooked as it should be. Top quality, portions a bit large. The wine list is focused but limited. Fortunately, there are moderately priced fine bottles and we had an amazing California Pinot served in grand large glasses. Very good deserts.

We were in area on vacation and heard of how good this restaurant was. We went two nights.
Lovely and welcoming hostesses both nights!
On our first visit had an amazing waiter and just superb service.
Second visit service was a bit curt and not as good at all. Not unpleasant, but waitress not friendly or accommodating. A big disappointment after Thomas, out first waiter.
But food is stellar and they have a good wine list. Chef likes things a bit spicy, but you can ask for it to be not so spicy, and they are glad to accommodate.
On our second night, We had the filets and they were superb!
We Highly !!! recommend this restaurant.

The
Coach House is our favorite place to eat in the New London area.

The food is always good and their staff professional.

The ambiance of the old inn is welcoming and it is quiet enough to hear your dinned partners.

So enjoy the New London Inn restaurant! Food and service was. wonderful. Just one issue-it typically is a quiet place to dine but there was one very loud table of guests. I had a hard time hearing my dinner partner’s conversation.

Food was good. The watermelon gazpacho was ok. Field green salad was delicious. The tuna poke was very good. The chicken was good.. a little too saucy for me. Ambiance was delightful. We had the whole room to ourselves by the window facing the garden. Just lovely though over air conditioned. The cobbler dessert was good. My friend had the burger which was very good with truffle fries. Everyone but me liked the flavor of the truffle fries.

Our party of 3 each had different things and all of them were attractively presented and delicious. The flavors complimented each dish. All were interesting and all plates returned to the kitchen empty. Service was prompt. Gardens outside the window lovely. Wonderful evening. Wonderful food.

Ambience and service was very good. The food was mediocre at best and not a good value for the price. My wife and I had the seafood chowder special. It was neither hot when served or flavorful. My lemon chicken was fine, not great. My wife had the duck ordered medium rare. It was served with wings still flapping. It had to be returned to cook more. A friend at another table had the same experience with the duck. Moreover, the duck was not crispy. Nice atmosphere for dinner out but not worth the price.

We made reservation at this restaurant for my graduation. It located in a pretty nice area with plenty of on site parking. The ambience is quite romantic and cozy, prefect for dates and special occasions.
They greeted us and led us to our table right away and the server was so attentive. And the food..omg so delicious! We ordered the braised pork, seared duck, and filet mignon. Good portion size and well executed. We had such a wonderful time. Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice night out and great food.

This was a Birthday dinner for my boyfriend. The front of house was crowded around the hostess stand didn't offer to say hello. When we did say hello the ladies did answer our questions. We sat at the bar where the bartender was very friendly and attentive. We were sat at a very nice table and waited for 10 minutes for our waitress we ordered and the bread came right away. We did enjoy our meal. We did wait for a second beverage and for our check for quite sometime. Overall the experience was good but with a bit more attention to service would have a great one.
