The restaurant was gorgeous with a lovely view. We had minor complaints about the food- the risotto was made with brown rice which made it very chewy as the rice didn’t break down (not the creaminess you’d expect from a risotto) and the chicken sandwich didn’t have enough sauce on it to have the full honey sriracha taste. But overall, very good. There is a fantastic bottomless mimosa option at a great price and they come DIY style, which is always an excellent touch.

Had Valentine’s Day dinner there. Waiter seemed very off and it wasn’t busy when we were there at 5:15pm. He came over and read us the specials 3 times. We ordered our meals, I had steak medium well and he had crab cakes. It literally came out 7 mins after we ordered. Steak was so dry and fatty. I didn’t complain or say anything about it, but I did waste half of it. We both had one drink. Quick and simple meal. Fast forward, we get the bill and it came to about $85. The bill came and it looked like it was already paid for. We asked the waiter but he didn’t really seem to know. So I went to the manager to inquire and it turned out that his sister called ahead of time and bought us a $100 gift card for Valentine’s Day and his bday and it was supposed to be presented to us before the meal bu the waiter but it wasn’t. He just opened the envelope and charged the gift card inside without even telling us about it. We would have ordered another drink to use the full amount. The waiter that night really had no idea what was going on and like I said it wasn’t even that busy at the time. So needless to say we didn’t even have a chance to use the gift card to the full amount that his sister paid for. The whole experience just was not what we expected for such a highly recommended place.

We have been to Diamond Mills about ten times and it’s always a treat. Amazing food. Staff are friendly and hard working. I highly recommend Diamond Mills. Also there is a great view of a waterfall, and the decor is wonderful. They have special meals all of the time. Great place!!

The food was great and everyone was very nice but it took a very long time to get drinks. We finished our appetizers and our plates were cleared before I received the champagne I ordered when we first sat down. Dinner was amazing and our server was very nice but when we were finished our check sat with a credit card on it for over 20 minutes before I had to ask another member of the service team to give it to him so we could leave.

We celebrated the new year at Diamond Mills and it was absolutely incredible! Our server, Christine, was knowledgeable and personable. If you’re lucky enough to get her as your server, you won’t be disappointed. It turns out that January 1st also happened to be First Friday, a monthly event at Diamond Mills. This month’s menu was so delicious, I can’t even explain how good it was. The chef did an outstanding job creating this menu. The theme was Italian and included a five course meal; Italian wedding soup, antipasto, the most heavenly pasta you will ever have in your entire life, an entree (braised chicken, swordfish, or vegetarian) and dessert. I was too busy enjoying that I forgot to take pictures of all the courses. Thank you for an amazing start to 2021!!!

This was my first time attending the First Friday event at Diamond Mills and let me tell you, it was spectacular. The dishes were warm and comforting - perfect for the chilly weather! The gnocchi was the best I’ve ever had, and the chocolate dessert was literal heaven. Thank you, thank you! Always a wonderful meal when I go to DM!

Went for post Thanksgiving brunch and had a lovely view of the falls from the outdoor tent. We were warm because the sun was shining on our table and we had a heat lamp too. Everything except the Heuvos Rancheros was good. The Huevos was really basic and any person could make a better one at home.

Food was decent. The set up was a bit lacking... small table for more than two plates. They served the sides, including gravy and cranberry sauce before the main course & took it before we were served the main course. Thus, the turkey was dry. The beef was over cooked & the stuffing was not great at all.
The desserts were tasty and overall it was pleasant.

This visit was for Thanksgiving dinner, so it probably shouldn’t be taken as an overall evaluation of the Diamond Mills Tavern. For a start, it was served in the ballroom, not the tavern, to provide a safer environment in the midst of a raging pandemic, something we really appreciated.

The space was arranged with about 20 feet separating tables in the large ballroom. Servers all wore masks, and food was brought to the table on large trays, from which diners could serve themselves for most of the dishes.

Service was of varying quality, which we forgive based on the circumstances, but service varied in timing from table to table; for example, we were served well after most of the other tables (even though we were the first to arrive). However, a manager made a real effort to see to our needs once it was brought to her attention.

The food was much better than average for a mass Thanksgiving dinner, with a very large selection of main courses, an ample choice of vegetarian dishes, and excellently prepared side dishes. While the $50/person dinner was well below the $150/person dinner we had in Philadelphia the previous year, we enjoyed all of the dishes and even took some back to our inn.

Overall we would do it again.

We have always enjoyed the Diamond Mills for it’s ambience, delicious well presented food, and service. As always, the views are spectacular and it was nice to sit outdoors with heaters. This visit was an incredible disappointment.

We went for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week (HVRW), for which we found the attached website and menu on the Diamond Hills own website (attached screenshot from today’s date.). We also made the reservation through your Open Table HVRW website. The manager said they were not participating and asked me to send the link, which I had showed her at the table. Her email rejected mine when I sent it. She did not have the courtesy or good business sense to even offer a complementary appetizer or dessert with our trouble (and proof of their false advertising).

My Impossible Burger was good, despite being slightly burnt. My husband’s brisket was a complete embarrassment; dry and bland , with no seasoning or sauce. The puréed parsnips and carrots were also tasteless. Both dishes were overpriced lunch servings. A $21 burger in Ulster county?

Maybe we would give it one more chance, but we recommend they rehire their previous manager, cook, and waitstaff, all of whom made DM a high quality, classy eatery. It’s lost in every category.

Took 30 minutes to have our drink order taken. The table next to us was seated after we were and their order was taken right away. The waiters tended to all the tables around us and did not even glance our way, despite my waving my hand for attention. It was not busy. Food was bland. We were about to get up and leave when the waiter finally came over. Claiming there was a shift change. Which is nonsense because our reservation was for 7:30. No one helped us until 8, and the restaurant closes at 9. I’m not sure what happened but it was definitely disorganized and annoying

My friend and I had a wonderful experience dining at The Tavern at Diamond Mills. We chose to sit outside, and considering it was a chilly day, we appreciated having a heater right by our table. The views were beautiful, and the food was delicious! I highly recommend their fried pb&j. This restaurant most certainly will not disappoint!

Last minute birthday dinner for my girlfriend's 37th birthday and I'm glad I chose this place.
Everything was perfect. 5 stars. Loved it.
The staff and waiters were awsome.
I don't remember his name ( tall white guy ) made us feel like we were important and kept on checking on us. Even took off a drink from the bill one of my friends did not like.
I will definitely be back.

beautiful place; eating out on the terrace in the afternoon sun, autumn leaves, overlooking the falls. perfect setting, spacious and quiet. We were three at lunch, my friends were very happy with choices (hamburger, crab cakes). My duck leg was tough, tasteless, the accompanying beans seemed as if they were merely rinsed after coming out of the can, and I personally do not understand the reason for raw Brussels sprouts.

Setting is fabulous (the waterfall...:), staff is extremely nice, tables are separated for social distancing. All that is great, and we are grateful for it. The drinks are imaginative and vividly described, they don't rock your world but they do their job. The food...is...how can I put this...terrible...(this is our second time there, we had the same experience before). I had the short ribs (on the recommendation of server) which were overcooked, bitter (neither in a good way) with some mushy carrots floating in glop. My dining partner had a palatable salmon with an extremely untasty quinoa/chard combo.

For some reason we ordered dessert - maple pot de creme with vanilla bourbon whipped cream - it seemed like we couldn't go wrong with that, but in fact you can...seemed more like the vaguely vanilla 'Snack Pack' puddings my mom used to give me for lunch 40 years ago, no HINT of maple, vanilla, or anything of the like.

The server was so nice but asked me at EVERY turn how everything was, I finally got sick of lying so just said, I swear in a nice way, "I hate to say this, but that dessert was not good" - and it was as if I'd short circuited everything. The poor guy just kept apologizing, I kept insisting it wasn't his fault and it didn't matter...but...um...why are you asking?

It's like home cooking by a not particularly good home cook.

These are very nice people and I'm glad they're open (hard to find places in Saugerties on a Monday night), but...please please please get a better chef or teach this one how to cook!

Sat on the patio with a nice view of the falls. A bit chilly with a few of the doors open, but the heaters helped. We ordered the charcuterie plate and were very disappointed with the variety...one cheese, and raisins as the dried fruits. The meats were OK. Our entrees were delicious.

We love the Tavern and we are usually satisfied. But last Sunday we brought some friends and, Murphy’s law, we had a bad experience. Service was too slow and it seems they were overwhelmed by too many patrons.
They did try to make it up, but the experience was ruined. I will not go too hard on them because I am confident they will come back strong. But I had to let them know.
