Most beautiful water vista teaming with water fowl...a joy to watch. Food is well prepared and tasty; arriving hot. Excellent value! Recently ordered from the winter pice fixe menu and our group loved all their selections. Will return soon.

Everything was fine but I distinctly ordered a half bottle of wine and was given and charged for a full bottle. The restaurant didn’t really make an effort to fix the issue in good faith. Other than that, everything else was good

They were very unorganized for valentines day. Wound up having our 2nd and 3rd courses packed up to go since it took 1hr and 15 min to get the first course out. Hostess initially sat us outside and there was a draft, we wound up moving our seats and the couple next to us said the same thing happened to them. Had no idea who our waiter/waitress was since numerous people were asking if our drink order had been placed yet and if we ordered our meals. I was very disappointed.

It was Valentine’s Day so very busy was expected. Prix fixe menu but plenty of options. Food was good but on the cold side. We were seated on the outside room which was full. When we arrived it was heated but about halfway through the meal heaters were shut off. It was 15 degrees outside and seated near water. People all put on their coats. I mentioned to a waiter, then busboy them manager. Nothing was done. Would have been a very good evening it you weren’t seated in a neat locker.

The balcony was actually smaller than i thought but the fairy lights and candles made the restaurant very cute.

We came on a Sunday night for the Prixe Fixe and it was amazing. The food was incredible and the portions were big, it was good to see that they don't lower standards for the special. It was energetic and the wait staff were great! Will definitely be returning!

We've been there many times, even hosted a large party last summer. Food was a good as was service however it is a very noisy restaurant. Not good for a quiet conversation.

We don’t get there as much as we would like but when we do we really enjoy it!
The food is always delicious (we love the sushi) and it’s real cozy there.

Mill Pond House is always a favorite when we are in Long Island. One of the few places with a view of the water, it is a beautiful setting. Sit on their outdoor patio, that is enclosed & has heating during the winter. Service is always good. Food is excellent! My husband always enjoys the seafood fra diablo. I had the short ribs, that were fantastic. Highly recommend. The pre fixe menu is a great deal.

We were disappointed with the service. One of our party had severe allergy issues which were clearly discussed with our server. These concerns were acknowledged and then completed ignored.

This restaurant was a great find prior to visiting the planetarium! We had the New England Clam Chowder, the Lobster Bisque, a Lobster California Roll, the Mediterranean platter, the Branzino and Short Ribs - everything was exceptional - even the complimentary bread!! We wish we had room for desert! Will be sure to visit this restaurant again! :)

Still one of our favorites. Food is always above average, service is also. Not a particularly beautiful restaurant, but the setting is outstanding. Not inexpensive either, but definitely worth it. Good variety of appetizers and main courses. Try it. I bet you’ll go back.

We sat "outside" and it was a little chilly for one of my guests. Without hesitation they offered to move us inside. We had a minor slip up in the drinks and again the waiter without hesitation took it back and a minute later had the correct drink. No attitude just great service. We had the yellow fin tuna for dinner. I asked for mine black and blue, it was spot on. We also had the boneless short ribs, great. The tuna tartar and baked clams were excellent. Good value given quality and portions. Will definitely be back

Ambiance was great! A little loud, but that can be expected on a Saturday night. We had the Chicken Milanese and Chopped Salad - not left much to be desired as they were quite bland and didn’t have much taste to them. This was our first time after hearing great things. We will definitely try again and select different options to see if we can understand the hype.

It was New Year's Eve and very crowded but they were off their game. Yes the reservation time was botched, but that is to be expected. But the kitchen was sub par and service marginal at best. The New England Clam Chowder lacked substance, few potatoes and good luck finding a clam. The bread was burnt. When it came to the Duck entree the object of interest was over cooked and dry. They have been better but never really past good.

This restaurant was fabulous! I went on New Year’s Eve, which of course was super busy. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation time, which was great considering the amount of people there. The food and service was overall excellent. We never felt unattended to or forgotten about even though it was so busy. It was loud, but that was to be expected on a holiday night. The filet mignon was amazing- one of the best steaks I have ever had. My boyfriend had the coconut shrimp also as an appetizer- which he said was phenomenal. We will definitely be back!

It was New Years Eve so I will give them a mulligan. Pork Chop had to be sent back, replacement was not much better. Fillet of sole was tasteless and tough. Great waiter and a free dessert for our trouble. Not sure about recommending.

We had a party of 4 for an early New Year's Eve dinner. Everything was truly wonderful. We were seated at a table overlooking the water which was lovely. Service was exceptional. I had the butternut squash soup followed by the sea scallops with wild mushroom risotto - all excellent. The other diners in our party were equally pleased. I have never been disappointed coming to the Mill Pond House - can recommend wholeheartedly.
