Fantastic ambiance, service and food. First time and we had the 7 course chef selection. It did not disappoint each course was amazing. Highly recommend and make sure you are in no rush as you need to savory all they have to offer.

My husband and I enjoyed a perfectly lovely evening at Millwrights! The service was exceptional and the food was incredible! The choices on the menu made it difficult to decide what to order, but we each chose the Dumplings to start. I could have eaten the freshly made gnocchi, braised chicken, snap peas and garlic crumbs for an entree! They gnocchis were the best I have ever had. For his entree, my husband ordered the Duck Breast with black rice, leeks, celery root, truffle purée and juniper honey. He raved about each part. I tried the Lamb Loin and the presentation itself was superb. It was “mousse wrapped” with ramp purée, slender spears of asparagus and a brown butter crumb! Not only were the entrees delicious, they were unusual and combined well with the other items. Somehow we managed to save room for dessert and both decided to try the rhubarb. There were little chunks of rhubarb mixed in a cream, partly covered by a crumb topping and edible pansy with a bottom layer of a thicker rhubarb gel. Our server, Ron, was very attentive and helpful, as was his assistant. I would definitely recommend Millwrights for a special occasion and hope to return again before long.

Celebrated my birthday here. They were told in advance that we were celebrating my birthday and our server Chris (who was wonderful) presented me with a birthday card upon our arrival - which was a nice touch especially since my own son didn't get me one :)

One of the things I like about Millwright's, besides its lovely location, is how they incorporate as much local food into their menu as possible. They even list the sources on the menu.

They are also very creative with their food choices. For example, my husband had skate (which was actually more tender than I thought it would). I never had the vegetable served with my swordfish (sorry, can't remember what it was called) but it was delicious.

Desserts range for ice cream made locally to the more lavish - all beautifully presented.

The wine and spirit collection was impressive too. My husband was thrilled by the number of Scottish whiskys from which he could choose.

Will definitely come here again.

I have the good fortune to live around the corner from Milwrights. We often stop in to the Tavern for a kale Caesar, some oysters and a glass of wine. Our daughter came with us recently for the first time and reminded us what a gem this place is. The falls in the back are stunning. The food is impeccable. The desserts are all works of art (I’m sheepishly going to acknowledge that I’ve tried them all...the Earl Gray Cloud is a favorite.) Wow, our daughter said! This is Simsbury? Yes it is, and it’s a can’t miss!

We just held our annual ladies luncheon at Millwright’s. The food, ambience and service were outstanding! Jeff kept everything on schedule and included some humor and history with our experience. We hope to come back next year if not sooner for dinner or brunch which is also fantastic!
Cheers
