Plantsville's well-known Old Mill is now New Mill Restaurant, featuring the culinary talents of its new Executive Chef, Bob Martucci. This lovely 1737 cider mill has been a Connecticut favorite for many years, and has now completely renovated by its owners, Chris and Michelle Calvanese. Menu specialties include fresh-only seafood and raw bar selections, "chop house" Angus steaks, and homemade pastas and desserts. An expanded wine list and a large sociable bar round out the new offering.

Excellent food and service! A happening, exciting ambiance, but not too loud to enjoy conversation. I couldn't have chosen a better restaurant to host a friend's surprise birthday dinner. We all left beyond satisfied.

Very good! Parking was tough, as it was very busy but we had a reservation and were seated immediately. Everyone was nice and the food came out quickly and correctly. A little far of a drive for us, but would definitely eat there again or recommend it to a friend!

Overall it is a nice-looking place. I tried a few appetizers that looked delicious on paper, but didn’t taste as good to me in reality. And it was quite pricey for what I had.

We had two issues that caused my rating to be just average. First, we ordered an appetizer, clams casino. When the waitress asked us how it was we indicating it was so, so. It was pretty dried out, usually clams casino comes with a little bit of broth. What was disconcerting is the waitress said nothing, which I took to mean she didn't care. The next issue is this night they were offering a prime Angus sirloin steak, which was a step up from their normal strip steak. While it was cooked the way I wanted it, the quality was not worth the price. This was on par with Ruth Chris price, no where close to the same quality.

My husband and I enjoy coming here nearly on a weekly basis! We usually get the steak special, and if we’re feeling like eating light, we opt for their flavorful chopped salad and or soup of the day! Never disappointed with their food, BUT, I repeat, BUT stay far away from their Waitress by the name of Karen. I believe she works there only because her husband works there as well, most likely as the chef. My husband and I had her one time and that was all it took for us to see she brings this place down tremendously. She was rude to us, wasn’t around, we had to keep asking employees for service. She just wasn’t friendly at all. We left her a mediocre tip (she’s lucky she even got one) for poor service, even though our bill wasn’t high, and on our way out she looked at us and said “Thanks for nothin.” We immediately turned around and made a complaint about her uncivilized persona. My husband and I dine out fairly often, and we’ve never experienced someone so full of hate.

Michele was our waitress - she was attentive but over bearing. Timing of the appetizers and meals seemed a little rushed as we ordered an above average amount of appetizers. Overall we enjoyed the experience. It met our expectations.

Our server Jen quickly realized that my husband and I were seated amongst two large parties. She offered to move our table and the noise level was much better. The presentation of the food and the taste were excellant. I would return again.

We celebrated our 51 st anniversary and we are repeat customers. My only complaint was the bread. Dinner rolls were served instead of home-made bread. I suggest you upgrade your bread selection to match the quality of the menu.

Good food, my Ribeye was a bit fatty but I was advised by the waiter (prior to ordering) that it comes that way for flavor. Portion was adequate. Overall a good experience.

It was my 1st time there and I was so impressed. The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. I was eating my dinner within 20 mins of sitting on Valentine's Day weekend when the place was packed! I will definitely be returning!

I have reviewed this establishment in the past, overall I am very pleased with the service, food, and atmosphere. We sat in the bar area this past visit, it was still very comfortable. Food is great, would like to see some non fish items in the appetizers; my wife is please with the fish selections. Management is greatest he gentleman at the hostess post is always there and always efficient. Will always recommend, I actually posted this past visit on Facebook to share.

We have not been in awhile, tried a couple of times and because we did not have a reservation we did not get in. We got a reservation this time. Better than I remembered. We had a great time while driving home about experience. We will be making another reservation soon.

My favorite go to for special occasions. It is so pretty when decorated for the holidays. The food and service is always top notch. The only downside is the noise level. It is an old building and just people talking can be loud, not to mention if there is a party going on.

Honestly, I was expecting more, especially since the restaurant is always packed and this night was no exception. Pouring rain on a cold, Sunday night and barely a parking spot to be found.

Place is beautifully decorated, esp. so for the holidays. Quant rooms and lots of ambiance. Service was very slow - lots of large tables got prime attention.

Ordered eggplant rolanti for appetizer - sadly it was burnt and over cooked. Salads were wonderful - lots of fresh ingredients and many choices.

Ordered cavatelli with lump crabmeat - very tasty and huge portion. Too much in my opinion. Very pricey menu. Most entrees range from $28 up.

Overall, pleasant, but pricey and food decent.
