The service was superb, friendly, and attentive without being in your face. As far as the food goes I have never had a bad meal or been disappointed. I cannot say enough about the chef and the way they blend ingredients, just outstanding!

Sally, our waitress was friendly, attentive, and added to the enjoyment of our meals. Each of the 4 people in our party ordered a different entree, and we all thought our dinners were excellent. My husband would have preferred pasta with chicken parm, but that’s a small point.

Was surprised by the Italian cuisine inspired menu. I was expecting the coach house classic menu of the past. Would prefer a menu styled as it previously was vs tomato based dishes and sauces. The salad was excellent. Server was delightful.

We have friends that we see once a year and we've been meeting them at this restaurant each summer for many years. It has become tradition and that's because the food is excellent, the service is very good and the ambiance is perfect. It's comfortable and we can hear each other speak. Grateful, Valerie

The Coach House restaurant never fails to disappoint in the areas of service, ambiance, and overall experience. It’s a great place for a special night out in the town of New London and do wish that diners would make an effort to dress nicely for this special restaurant. Sally McDermott did an excellent job as our server and our table was always well attended by her coworkers. We were slightly disappointed by the new menu. Bread is no longer offered on a complimentary basis and there are no longer small side salads available which are a nice way to start a three course meal. We also were disappointed in the strip steak, much tougher than the filets offered in the past. The remaining dishes were excellent with the hanger steak standing out among the rest. We will definitely be back!

Service was excellent except we would have preferred a table by the window. Food was overpriced. It was good but $38 for a small bowl of ravioli is too much. No bread on the table.

The only thing that keeps me from giving Coach House all 10s is I think the meals we ordered could have included a vegetable. I also think $36 was a bit much for a bottle of red wine with a twist-off cap.

This was the best dinner we've had in some time. The quality at many restaurants has declined with COVID. Our meals at the Coach House were well-prepared and served hot, and we liked the menu choices. It's been a favorite for us for several years, and remains so.

We have eaten at New London in twice in the past two months. I had a pork chop that was the best ever. My friend had the filet mignon again. They were both excellent meals. I would like a better menu selection, more vegetarian and chicken options. I enjoy haddock or cod, which was not on the menu. I’m not a big fan of pasta or Italian food. Thank you!

Scallops and Pasta was a very generous portion and well prepared. The seafood risotto was a bit disappointing: the scallops and shrimp were OK but the lobster was skimpy, maybe one little claw and knuckle, and very dry. It also needed more risotto on the plate. It was not worth eight dollars more than the scallops and pasta dish. The dessert was fun and tasty. Service was great and attentive.

Beyond that checked sbove. It is frustrating, challenging when the light is so bad you can't read the menu. If you cant read the menu and can barely see the plate, that reduces the visual effect that a well plated and artful design has, ie part of the pleasure is what you see - if you can see it!

The special “guinness stew” was thin and not hearty, the Waitress was nice but struggled with answers on menu and drinks; food was good but on cold side of warm; and as my wife said, “pricey.”

Outstanding cocktails and food. Unfortunately, we sat a long time before getting our drinks -- even our appetizer came before the cocktails. And still no bread, until we asked for it. But the food was excellent !!!

Our appetizers and my husband's main dish were excellent. My main dish which I ordered from the first course list was so-so. I had the gnocchi and it seemed to have been precooked and reheated. It didn't seem as fresh as the other items.

Being a holiday weekend, it was jammed. We were seated promptly at our reserved time and our server was a familiar pleasant face. It was obvious, that like many businesses, they were very short staffed. Our appetizers were a long time coming as was our main course, again, short staffing, likely the problem. The hostess came a couple of times to apologize, but we were in good company so didn’t really mind the wait. My wife and I shared a crab cake appetizer which we both agreed was good. She ordered Crusted Cod which is her favorite, and I, hanger steak. It as cooked a perfect medium rare and served attractively with green beans and finger potatoes with pesto. Wonderful. My wife said her cod was very good, but not very hot. Out friends had lamb slide which were announced as delicious, and our server went out of her way to allow one of our party to order from the tavern menu. Nice touch! The Coach is one of our favorite places and while the pace of service left something to be desired, it was good. Tough times when you shut down a country.
