Went for lunch. There was plenty to from on the menu. Great presentation. Food was very good. I think if you have not tried Jeffreys' you should. It is consistently good.

Thankfully we made reservations because this particular night the restaurant was packed. Since the owner knew one of my friend's parents we go a great table to have dinner and watch the band perform. This was on Dec 30th and the place was packed. Dinner was very good though even with the crowd. The owner came over to explain they... More

Very disappointed with our first visit to Jeffrey's. We live in Milford and were always curious to try this restaurant. Unfortunately, it did not live up to expectations. Service: We felt like we were not wanted and it did not have a welcoming feeling. It was evident this place is used to their "regulars" and that is all they were... More

Looking back, I think I have never submitted a negative review of a restaurant: maybe because my husband and I enjoy good food so much, that writing a positive comment is my way of thanking a restaurant??? Who knows? A year ago, we took a visiting friend from Paris to Jeffrey's for Thanksgiving dinner. It was delicious, even creative for... More

Went on a Saturday night with another couple. Went to the bar for a drink before dinner and the bartender was so nice and helpful we decided to have our meal at the bar. When the bartender asked how we were enjoying our apps., escarole and beans, my friend said he was not enjoying his (joking because the other 3... More

There is a nice warmth to this restaurant and we found the wait staff to be professional and attentive. There was a new menu stator ting tonight and our appetizer , an antipasto, was both generous and with great quality ingredients. my roast duckling was a bit sweet and overlooked but the vegetables and presentation were good. My companion had... More

One of my dearest friends has a lovely little beach house in Milford where she spends her summers and occasional weekends otherwise. I visit her often and we go out to eat frequently when I am there. We decided to go to Jeffrey's in the late Spring and it happened to be a Thursday evening. We were welcomed at the... More

This is a nice restaurant. It is quaint, but intimate. The bar area has a fireplace, which felt great tonight. The other area has the music, which consisted of a man on a keyboard, playing along with Norah Jones songs. (I happen to love her.) The bread was mediocre. I ordered an Orzo Tuscan salad, which was very good. The... More

This place was terrible from the service to the presentation of the food to the food itself. The waiter didn't know anything about the wine list but said "it didn't matter because they don't have most of the wines on the list anyway because they sell a lot of wine, a lot of wine". Order the Orzo salad with olives... More

I used to love Jeffrey's. As a matter of fact when it came time to pick a restaurant for a special friend's birthday, I chose this restaurant. Sadly, I was disappointed. Let me say, the service is still excellent. Our waiter, Tim, and the bartender went above and beyond to make the dinner enjoyable. The problem was the food. Although... More
