New Small Plates Great Food Horrible Service

Made a reservation to try the new small plates lounge menu. Come here a couple times a year over the last 15 years. Seated pretty quick in the bar area. Took over 20 minutes just to get the waiter to take a drink order for us. A glass of wine can make slow service a lot less slow. Service... read more

Our annual Christmas (with 4 couples) dinner was held at the Milton Inn. We try to go to a different place each year but I think we will be back to The Milton Inn for sure. The service was excellent. We had a very attentive and informed waiter who served us perfectly, without pestering us. He also gave very good... More

Service was great, seated right away, our server Mark was great. Food was very good, we didn't realize it was set menu and set price, about $300 per couple, if you don't eat crab venison or lamb the choices were slim. Not worth $300 but service and atmosphere was nice

We stopped by on our way back of Ladew Gardens to have a late dinner. The place was full but they found a table for us, so I encourage anyone to call ahead to make sure there is space. We ordered sweet breads and a winter salad for an appetizer. Both were well prepared. the salad was mixed greens with... More

Our office had our Christmas luncheon at the Milton Inn today. I live in the Baltimore area but had never been to this restaurant. I will tell you that this will not be my last visit. It is a quaint little restaurant, the rooms decorated tastefully and beautifully for the holidays. We had a wonderful server named Mark who was... More

If you're looking for ambiance and elegant - as well as character in a milieu, this is your place. Been there probably 20 x's and on only 1 occasion when the food was lukewarm did it disappoint. And that is with me holding this restaurant up as my "go to" for special occasions.

When the grown kids have their own plans for TG, my husband and I love it because we get to go to the Milton Inn. The TG Feast is as good as my own home cooking but I don’t have to cook it, wait on people and then clean up. So, I think the Feast is perfect! We know that... More

Anniversary date night in mid Nov was perfect. It was decorated for Christmas and we sat by the fire. Food was very good. Our waiter was excellent and made great suggestions.

Our family enjoyed a great Thanksgiving meal at the Milton Inn. We were one of the first to be seated and service was excellent throughout the early afternoon. We had the traditional thanksgiving meal, Hudson Valley duck, and surf and turf. All were excellent and prepared to our full satisfaction. One of the meals was delayed because of a technical...

My wife and I decided to give the Inn another shot because of expense. It's a nice place to celebrate something special however but too expensive to do it often. We went to the bar and it was there first night for a small plate menu. If you ever meant me you would know I am not a small plate... More
