No sandwiches for dinner?

My sweetheart and I had a$25 gift certificate for Jeffrey's in Milford. I knew it was pricey and I went online to look at their menu. They had sandwiches on their menu which looked delicious. So we decided to drive out there this evening. We were seated immediately (for a Saturday 6:30 time... read more

Purchased a Groupon for Jeffrey's, which did not specify that you must spend $50 in order to get $25 off. It was represented as, pay "this" amount and get $25 to spend (nothing in the fine print said we had to spend a certain amount). Trying to spend $50 there for lunch should've been easy considering it's not an inexpensive... More

Food and service were just not good. Chef refused to make any substitutions/edits to menu items. Both myself and my dining partner got sick after eating there. The only thing we had in common was beef, so either the restaurant has bad beef (ack!!!) or it's a coincidence. Parking is a mess. Decor is decent, very old-fashioned. And I did... More

Had high expectations since this restaurant was highly recommended. Owner greeted us and was very nice. Dining room was empty, small bar area was very popular. Atmosphere was nice! Then came the waiter!! He was extremely rude and arrogant. Ruined the entire evening. Meals extremely pricey and food was average.

This place is a splurge for us and we went on a Saturday night there were three large parties, two of which were raucous. There were a few related delays and also some kind of computer glitch slowing down orders and bill paying. And yet. The food was really terrific, our waiter was skilled and steered us between choices, and... More

This is a restaurant that has been here for years. Used to be quite good. We hadn't eaten there in quite some time, so took advantage of Milford's restaurant week to go with some friends. Frist mistake-never go to large restaurants during a restaurant week when they only offer a very limited selection. Choice of 3 entrees, and then a... More

Traveling on business. I always have dinner at the bar, in an effort to have a faster dinner and to not take-up a table in a dining room. This was restaurant week; however, I ordered off the regular menu. The menu was cliche...most items were fussy with lots of ingredients. I had the lobster bisque and the scallops. Both were... More

Planned a private work function here with a group of co-workers. The planning and execution was remarkably easy. The space was decorated nicely, and they even provided fresh flowers. Of significant note, they allowed me to pay per person on the day of, no minimum head count or fee was required. Service was excellent and the food was fresh and... More

We recently visited Jeffrey's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was excellent (very flavorful, good sized portions), we both had the tuna. The service was prompt and very friendly (Emily and Patty did a great job). But as long time Jeffrey's patrons this is so typical. The food quality is consistently good; we have never had a bad meal... More

Been there before and loved it. Just go back and was more than disappointed. They need to update their on-line menu as the items have changed. They no longer have the sea bass and replaced it with halibut, which was dry and not very well seasoned. The steak item was also much different and if it weren't for the sauce... More
