We were seated at the front window and able to view the early evening Fall scenery. The food was delicious with very eye- pleasing presentations. Our waitress, Brittany, made the experience even more enjoyable with her sweet personality while taking care of anything we needed. This is definetely a return dining choice for us in the future.

As always an exceptional meal. Have been there multiple times and have tried pretty much the whole menu. Have never been disappointed. Atmosphere and food is just outstanding. We are very picky about food and have never had an issue, great presentation of the food. Just love the place, recommend it to all.

Our first trip out to Colden on a warm late summer evening. We sat on the patio among the trees. Excellent service, very good appetizers, and my wife enjoyed the buttermilk chicken. The trout was a little on the dry side, but overall the meal was fine and definitely a good value. We will make the drive out again soon.

Very cute place. The service was a little slow but the food was fantastic.
The portion size was more than I could eat.
It was a 45 minute drive for us so I'm not sure I'd go back unless I was
in the neighborhood. Loved the décor!

For starters, the hostess was anything but hospitable, feigning little interest (if any) in our arrival. We were seated outside, and for 20 minutes promptly IGNORED. ALL of the other tables were being served - one adjacent to us cleaned TWICE by the server without ANY acknowledgement we even existed. Finally, the "topper": a couple seated 22 minutes after we arrived IMMEDIATELY served and given water, list of specials etc. When we had enough - and finally left - and I confronted the server about the situation - she meekly stated, "sorry, it's the "rotation". Huh? Needless to say, we won't be returning.

Stumbled across this restaurant on Open Table and was so glad I did. While the inside of restaurant is like walking into a history museum, the menu was full of yummy, new dishes. The pesto mashed potatoes, beef medallions, chicken rosemary soup with couscous...delightful. Yummy cocktails. Desserts were only so-so - but the entrees were wonderful!

We have been here a col times before but not in a year or so. We had a couple specialty cocktails that were good. I had the razz lemonade, it was very sweet. We had the pork belly appetizer, it was ok, not as good as other places I have had it. Might have been in the deep fryer a tiny bit too long. My wife really liked her eddplant parm. I had the buttermilk deep fried cuz breast. The cuz was ok nothing special, the breading fell off like a shell and I noticed that some parts of the breading were much darker that others. The garlic mashed potatoes were very tasty. We will go back but I'm not planning on getting that again. The service was good and we very much like the setting there.

We arrived 15 min before our reservation so we went to the bar for a drink before we could be seated. The owner -Chuck-was tending bar and he was funny and very personable. My husband enjoys craft beers and each time he requested another beer, the kegs were empty and honestly Chuck felt bad, however it became humorous for us. We then were seated, and although a little frustrating (40 minutes and tables were open) we also understand staffing issues. We were "forgotten" again and went up to the bar to get another glass of wine and a beer. The wait staff and owner were very apologetic again. The food!! Well worth the wait!! Everything was delicious, hot and tasty. We were very well taken care of despite the hiccups in seating and ordering. We love it here and we will be back!

Saturday evening dinner reservations. Waited at the bar for a few minutes while our table upstairs was readied. Spouse had mushroom puffed pastry appetizer that was “amazing.” I had goat cheese croquettes that were equally as good. Spouse had duck breast that was perfectly cooked. I had scallop diner special. Dessert was brownie bread pudding with chocolate ice cream. Food & service excellent.

We had an incredible New Year's Eve/birthday dinner! I took my husband to celebrate his birthday. This was our first time dining at the Colden Mill. It definitely won't be our last! The ambience is incredible. It's so cozy in the restaurant. Just beautiful! The menu had so many great choices that it was hard to decide what to order. Neither of us were disappointed with our choices. The food was out of this world and the service was perfect. Can't wait to return!

Our first time and it was very nice. The restaurant had two large parties and the server apologized up front that the kitchen might be slow. We didn't experience any slowness in the service at all. The food was very good. It's a short drive from Orchard Park and we'll definitely be back.

We dined at the Colden Mill on a snowy Saturday with a party of 8 . We sat up in the Loft area which was nice and quiet and overlooked the dining area below. the whole restaurant is just amazingly decorated and very warm and cozy feeling. Everyone enjoyed their meals and said we will definitely return in the spring.

Cozy atmosphere - helps that it was snowing lightly. Place was quiet for a Saturday night (we had 7:30 pm res) yet they were out of several menu items (calamari & pork belly) so that was disappointing. Food was good overall, not great, but in all fairness we are fussy foodies. Wine list was nice. Would go back again.
