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.

Ate outside under the tent. Heater was on so it was comfortable. Food was piping hot and stayed a good temp throughout the meal, which was delicious as always.

Food was delicious! We started with the broccoli rabe and it was just the right amount of spice, the best broccoli rabe I’ve ever had! I had the stuffed chicken and my partner had the halibut. Portions were generous so we had our leftovers for lunch today :). We ordered the chocolate cake at the end and it was also great- warm and a perfect ending to a great meal! To drink we ordered a bottle of red that was a perfect pair with our meal. Will definitely visit again!

Food and service was great. Most employees wore their masks properly but some were not. More than one did not cover their noses when wearing masks. Hostess was not wearing mask properly and general manager came out from kitchen without a mask initially but then put one on. I was not comfortable with this. In the end, if they do not want to enforce compliance, then I need to take my business elsewhere.

We ate in the tent. I know with Covid times are trying but would have liked to see a table cloth for more warmth.

The food and service was excellent!

We live in New Jersey and when we visit family in Bristol 2 or 3 times a month the New Mill is our only choice for dinner and we have tried several restaurants in the area.

My experience at this restaurant was great! They were very accommodating. We asked to change our table because we preferred to sit in the bar area and it was no problem for them. They had to resanitize our table and chairs - they had no problem with that-just to let us move to another table.
The food was outstanding! Its pricier than most restaurants but well worth it. Service was amazing!

Dined indoors for the first time at New Mill since the pandemic began. The indoor arrangements were well done and at no time did we feel at risk. The food and service were terrific as always. Excellent experience.

My last visit was a celebration of friendship (of over 30 years) and life (friend lost mother); everyone was impressed with the staff and the food! The night was a hit! We loved our cocktails and meals. It’s great to feel comfortable, while in this pandemic, to see how they’ve taken steps to keep us all safe.

Due to Corvid we ate outside in a tent. Wonderful meal with excellent service. We have eaten at the New Mill many time. Always a high end meal. We have never been disappointed. Yes the experience inside the restaurant is much better than the tent, we still loved the evening.

Food was excellent as always. Service was very slow; problem was an individual server. Service is usually good. Glass of Sabastiani red wine was overpriced at $15.50; normal restaurant markup is 2X package store price. Overall, kudos to New Mill for operating during the pandemic.

Never disappointed here - food is delicious and plentiful.
Planned on eating outside due to covid but the tables were all large and not comfortable for 2 people. Also noise level from street was too much. Indoors was properly spaced due to regulations and quite comfortable.

Food was average - good. One person had fish which was cooked all right but it was just shy of being dry. One person ordered a pasta dish which they enjoyed. The others got beef and they seemed to enjoy their meals. Alcoholic beverage list did not include any prices. Service was fair- they did check on us but could have been more attentive.
This place is overpriced for the food and service you get.

Outstanding service and food. As far as ambience and noise-what the heck? It is as good as can be expected under a large tent in a parking lot near a busy street. Certainly not the fault of the restaurant! Will definitely go again and highly recommend!

Outdoor seating had adequate space between tables. Pasta special with house-made Italian sausage was delicious. Filet mignon was under-done but quickly corrected. Service was friendly and efficient. A nice night out.
