Resting on its laurels – Would that this charming restaurant in a breathtakingly beautiful hideaway could get some advice for a similar place in Connecticut, The Cobb's Mill Inn in Westport.

We've been twice. The first time service was excellent but a flank steak special was burned. The waiter returned and explained that that's how "grilled meat" should look outside. The drinks were weak and waaaay overpriced. However, the general freshness of the food was good and the ambience delightful.

Our second encounter was alright. The server was a little slower. The food was quite good, however, the two out of four of us who ate the oysters became quite ill later in the evening.

A good friend of ours with whom we dine often arrived at 7:45 one evening and was told curtly by the hostess that they "weren't serving anymore that night." As they walked back to their car a busboy was sent out to get them and they went in, giving them the benefit of the doubt. They were rushed through their meal and it became clear that dessert and coffee would not be available. They complained to the owner, who replied to them (at 8:40; *before* the posted closing of 9:00) "you want us all to sit here and watch you have dessert?" We'll never go back.

Excellent – Great food and romantic atmosphere. The wait staff was professional and made me feel as if I come in every day. My wife had a fish special (I think it was bass) which was excellent and I had the "Carpetbagger" - a tender filet mignon stuffed with sauteed lobster, need I say more???

I ALREADY made a reservation for Valentines Day

I agree with past reviewer – This was always a very average restaurant. However at least it was (at one time) a friendlier atmosphere. It no longer is. Very stuffy attitudes, arrogant hostess, and average food. Quite expensive considering what you get for your money, (or don't get). Uncomfortably crowded ambience as well. We won't return.

Living on an Old Reputation – This place used to be great, not anymore. As rude as can be

on the phone for reservations and when you get there you find you

really did not need one. I now see why they are not that busy any

more. All the best places seem to improve with age this place just

ages...

quiltlover – I've been going to the Grist Mill for 9 years and have always had an excellent experience. The food has always been outstanding, the service superb and the atmosphere fantastic. I've recommended the Grist Mill to family and friends. I've not been disappointed yet. The restaurant is beautiful and elegant but not stuffy. The view of the river is wonderful.
