We visited with another couple. The wine list was better than expected. The wait staff was polite and knowledgeable. The best entrees we had were the gumbo and osso bucco. The osso bucco was out of this world delicious. It alone is worth the trip

We reserved in advance for 5:00 pm requesting a table by the window facing sugerloaf mountain. Our reservation was confirmed, but we ended up with a lousy table, with no good view. The area that we requested was all closed off in preparation for a reception. We ordered the rib eye steak, which was a disaster. The soup and salads... More

Have eaten here at least a dozen times over the past three years, but no more. Dishes take way, way too long (50 minutes last time) and the ingredients in individual elements are just not working together. Chef has a compulsion to put a sweet ingredient into everything! It's not creative or "fresh," Chef. It's silly. CI is off the... More

A bit out of the way but we happened to be in the neighborhood. The food was excellent for brunch, the service superb and the view also great for a fall brunch. I would gladly drive there for a meal for a special occasion even if I wasn't needing to be in the neighborhood.

We were extremely disappointed when we returned to the Comus after about a 2 year hiatus. The main dishes were slow to come to the table (about 45 minutes plus) after we ordered and came out barely warm though it was tasty.Other customers in the room said their food was cold. No one explained the delay until we complained or... More

This fine dining restaurant is located in the rolling countryside of Montgomery County, Md midway between DC and Frederick, Md. My spouse ordered a pork loin dish which was very good and I ordered the vegetable risotto which was also good but not the best I've ever had. We also had salads which were excellent. Add in a few drinks... More

The view was as wonderful as always. In its heyday The Comus Inn was famous for its fried chicken and it was always on the menu. Not anymore. I had the Maryland Crab soup that had no crab in it and the 1855 Rib-eye. My wife had Hush puppy appetizer and the Cast Iron Duck. We passed on dessert at... More

This was our first visit and we had high expectations based on what we have heard over the years. However, our experience wasn't anything special. Our table was not ready at our reserved time. There was no bar to wait and have a drink, we had to sit on a love seat by the door. What kind of restaurateur wouldn't... More

I had really looked forward to a special Sunday Brunch at Comus Inn. The service was great and we seemed off to a good start. Then the food came. I've had better brunches at chain restaurants. Even though it is mid-July and fresh veg and fruit are available in abundance, our plates had none, not even a little garnish. For... More

I grew up in Rockville, MD. Comus Inn was a very special place to go to for brunch on Sundays or for a happy hour with my parents. Not so much any more. The downstairs bar, the dark, lovely bar is no longer open to the public. What a waste and a huge shame. It's now only open for events.... More
