The Coach House Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
This is a fabulous little gem. The food was superb! Nice and quiet with great service. This is one of those special places that you hope stays busy except when you come for dinner. 8-) The chef excellence that is happening here is very welcomed. Don't be confused or deterred by its location in Berkeley Square in Hamilton. All in all it is very charming and we look forward to dinner on the patio. The Coach House delivers on a great dining experience and we will be back for more.
Although this restaurant was not quite what we expected (i.e., we did not know it was part of a planned community), it nevertheless turned out to be just what we needed. The large fireplace made things cozy. There were not many tables and not all of them were full, so we could hear each other easily, unlike some of the places we have frequented before. Our server was excellent. All in all we loved the choices on the menu and all of us loved our meals. We would give this place an enthusiastic thumbs up!
You don't need to have an extensive menu when you know what you are doing. I like that The Coach House maintains favorites and also occasionally offers something new. The restaurant is beautiful, cozy, and quiet. The staff is both friendly and attentive. The food is imaginative and excellent!
I could not recommend this place enough! My friend and I drove into the community, and while we weren't sure what to expect, there was plenty of signage to direct us where to go. The food, from starters to dessert, along with the wine selection was fantastic! The staff went above and beyond to make our visit memorable and enjoyable. Towards the end of our meal, it started to rain, and a staff member gave us an umbrella to get to the car and then met us at the car pick up point to gather the borrowed umbrella. Top notch all the way around, we will DEFINITELY be visiting again!
Looking for a fine dining option before a night in Oxford, Open Table had presented the option of The Coach House. I was very unfamiliar with it, but I did come across an article in the Journal News describing its head chef as a Jean Robert alum, including time at The Maisonette and Pigall's. Dinner was very good, excellently prepared (wife ordered the filet medium well and it was executed perfectly). We had the baked brie, pecan-crusted pork chop, and the chocolate lava cake for dessert. The menu itself had numerous staples and despite Chef Jared's pedigree, the menu was very accessible. My pork chop had a nice risotto and carrot puree.
The restaurant's atmosphere was a bit unexpected. The location itself appears to be a senior community. There was no real hostess stand and the restaurant appeared divided into multiple named rooms. Even at 5:30, we began to see more people come in, including families and non-retirees. It felt less like a restaurant and more like a community clubhouse. Not bad, but not exactly romantic if that's what you're looking for in a "fine dining" establishment. Rustic.
Would definitely go back.
We went for parents weekend from Miami University. We did not know it was in a community living development. Pleasantly surprised. Good service. Filet was great , apple salad, roasted chicken breast and meatloaf all very good. Creme brulee for dessert was lovely.
We dined in a booth and was taken such good care of by our waitress, Susan. We ordered the special of the evening - Red Snapper, which was cooked to perfection! The rolls with dinner were served nice and warm so the butter melted into them and had the best flavor. Husband ordered a small chopped salad with his dinner that was the best we've ever tasted. Service and ambiance is top notch! Food is delicious!
I ordered the shrimp calamari appetizer. The shrimp look like someone ran to the local Wal Mart and bought frozen shrimp and serve them after thawing. The calamari was lukewarm like it had been prepare the night before and warmed up in a microwave., and not very warmed up at all.
My wife's steak was prepared very well and was very tasty. My salmon was mediocre at best.
I was told prior to dinner that the chef was on vacation...maybe that was the reason for such poor preparation and presentation.
Our waitress was very nice and friendly, and the visit was very pleasant.
The cost of the dinner did not represent the quality of the food. I assume that is why the restaurant was empty when we walked in. I hope the quality of the food in your business will improve.
Very nice dining experience in a retirement community neighborhood. Relaxing, excellent food prepared to order with lovely presentation. Full bar selections - wine, beer, cocktails, liquor, after dinner drinks. The coffee was excellent. The service was good and attentive. The price was a bit on the high side but not unreasonable for the quality of food and drink enjoyed.
Chef Jared had four specials, rack of lamb, shrimp and scallop pasta, beef brisket and haddock. Tough to decide, our table chose three of the four, all were delicious and presentation was great. Portions were just right and several sampled a special salad with goat cheese, beets, puffed pastry served in a lettuce wrap. We had a great time and suggest anyone looking for a nice dining experience visit The Coach House.
The service was impeccable, the food delicious. Menu has a plethora of gluten-free options for those requiring or desiring them. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the qusine. The dessert menu is not to be missed. One of the best steaks I've had in a long time that I didn't have to cook myself!
