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.

Awesome meal, the best dinner we have had in a long time. We sat in the big room downstairs and it was very noisy. But otherwise we had great service! Will be back

It was a disappointing dinner, and this was all due to the poor service on the part of our waitress.
She was indifferent, bordering on rude.
We visit New Mill at Christmas every year after a Christmas show, its a tradition.
This may be the last time for this one.
Food was very good and ambiance was amazing.
Christmas decorations are wonderful!!

My second at Thanksgiving fibber at the New Mill had improved; but no. Overpriced frozen salmon, small quantity of sides served for a table of six. Our waitress was less than festive at best.

I might never cook another Thanksgiving dinner. Everything about our dinner was outstanding. Perfectly prepared and presented. Stellar kitchen, service was wonderful too. Such an extraordinary value as well! Kudos to the New Mill Restaurant for making a holiday meal perfect!

Excellent food, atmosphere and service. We sat in bar area in back booth. I had the salmon with soba noodles and vegetables. I’ve had it many times before and it’s always consistent.

Dinner was amazing as it always is, but our waitress never explained the specials to us.I think she was new,she was very young and was pretty slow at returning to check on us.
The short rib ravioli were DELICIOUS!!!

As usual great drinks & food. Our waitress however left much to be desired. When asked if we can put apps in she gave some speal about we should order everything because there is a big party there. Really? Since when can’t we order apps first?

It pretty much went downhill from there. She was rude when one of our party wanted to make sure she knew she was gluten intolerant. She was like yes ma’am the dish is gluten free. That want the point.

Anyway it’s a great place but that waitress needs to retire.

The food is always consistent and tasty at the Mill. We started w the Fried mozz. The. We both had salads. The chopped was excellent and the dressing sass flavorful. I get the pork chop everyone I go. It is tender and cooked to perfection. The maple glaze is stellar. My wife had the carbonara which was cooked perfectly. The service is always great. They have had the same wait staff for decades. They know their job and excel at it. Dave is the best manager in the business. We enjoy eating here when in town. I highly recommend.

Food and drinks were very good. As a first time visitor I was surprised how large the restaurant was. It was very loud (not my preference), but we started late enough that most of our louder neighbors left before we ate our entrees.

We made reservations for our Anniversary. We were seated over by the fire place which was a beautiful spot. The only issue we had, is that we were seated by 2 larger parties who were very loud and we could not hear each other talk and couldn't enjoy each other's company. Maybe we should of asked to be seated elsewhere. We love New Mill and the food is always superb!!!

Caesar salad excellent (note salad not included with meal). Veal chop good, but should be at $49! Cavatelli very good and plentiful. Good wine selection. So many restaurants to choose from in Southington will likely try others before returning.
