Milton Inn Ratings and Reviews
This is a great place to go for a special occasion. We had a gift certificate which made this a good choice, as the food is expensive. My lamb chops were the best I have ever had. The scallop appetizer and cream of crab soup were also great. The waiter Ilya was kind and attentive. The only thing I thought was average was the cheesecake. Regardless, the place makes you feel like royalty!! I hope I can go again soon.
We went there for our anniversary and had an excellent experience for both food and service. Our waiter, Johnnie, was very knowledgeable about the entrees and the specials. I got the Seafood Andor which was excellent and my wife got the Filet Mignon with crab topping special which also was excellent. Johnnie was prompt, efficient and friendly. We would definitely recommend The Milton Inn to anyone who wants a special meal with good service and food to match.
Dined on a recent Saturday evening. We had made a 5:30 reservation several days in advance through Open Table requesting seating at one of our favorite tables. We were surprised to get a call earlier in the day asking if we wouldn't mind sitting upstairs (not the original room/table we had requested) since it "might get crowded" - ? the restaurant opens at 5:30 on Saturdays. True to form, we were the only people in the restaurant at 5:30 (so why the need to go upstairs)? Fortunately we were seated where we had originally requested. From that point forward, everything was as we have come to expect with only one exception - the crab in the cream of crab was few and far between. Otherwise, my NY strip Oscar style was fantastic as was my wife's lobster. Ilya, our server, was polite and attentive as always.
This was highly enjoyable night that did not disappoint in any way. The service was outstanding the food was incredible. Even my Caesar Salad was hand crafted with cheese and anchovy perfectly blended. My husband had lamb and my daughter said her duck was the best she had ever tasted. I have gluten allergies and the staff was wonderful, attentive, and even joked a bit with me. If you go, make sure you bring a Groupon and try the Lemoncello.
My family has been visiting this restaurant for over 30 years. In fact, when the "current" chef Brian Boston came to the house I gathered a group of 20 to dine there and welcome him. Something I am sure he does not recall. This place has pretty much had the same menu with slight variations all theses years which frankly is okay because it is pretty reliable and consistent although a little pricey for most people. We have never cared much about the price because it is a neighborhood place, convenient for special family occasions and a safe place for a woman to stop and dine in the bar on her way home from downtown. It's the neighbors that kept this place going through the lean summer months and quiet times. You knew many of the servers as they have literally been working their as long as we have been coming here. But lately for whatever reason, increased competition, their use of Groupons for marketing, who knows but the service is lack luster and dismissive. No one seems to care. You can put as much money into renovations as you want but they don't make up for poor service, or yes, if you aren't going to have flowers on the tables then at least make sure the sconces on the candles are clean.
My wife and I ate dinner at the Milton Inn for Mother's Day. Although our reservation was for 5:30, the staff was able to seat us a little early. Our server was friendly and greeted us promptly after we were seated. My wife ordered a Brandy Alexander and I ordered a glass of Moscato. For an appetizer, I ordered the Maryland Crab Soup. The crab soup arrived with large lumps of crab meat. The only downside is that the crab soup was too spicy for my taste (that is just me). The soup was delicious One of the specials was called The Chesapeake. The meal consisted of a Filet Mignon capped by a large crabcake covered with Béarnaise Sauce. The vegetables were Jack Tarr Potatoes and mixed vegetables. We like our filet done medium well. The chef did a great job of preparing the steak to our liking without burning the steak or making it tough. The meal was filling and delicious. Even the coffee was good. It did not taste like it had been sitting in an urn for several hours. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We definitely would recommend this restaurant.
The food was excellent, the service impeccable, and the decor cozy and tasteful. The only negative to our experience was the high noise level, which made it difficult to converse. There was a large, loud group next to our table, and everyone else in the room had to talk loud to be heard over them.
