Best meal in New England

We recently completed a ten day trip to New England. One night while traveling between Mystic and the Berkshires found us spending the night in Windsor. Based on recommendations to our query elsewhere on this board we chose to eat this restaurant. We arrived without reservations on a Wednesday night and were lucky enough to find an open table in the Gazebo next to the pond. David C, our waiter provided superior service. My wife started with French Onion Soup which was superb. I started with a unique Lobster Gazpacho, which my Spanish wife declared to be a contradiction of terms because something with Lobster in it could not be Gazpacho. Truth or not my cold Lobster/tomato soup was wonderful. My wife followed with French Stuffed chicken and I had a superb Jagerschnitzel. By the time we were finished it was dark and we were the only targets for the local mosquitoes, so we moved into the bar for coffee and a wonderful apple Strudel. There were other places on the trip where the food approached this but nowhere else did we find the combination of service, ambiance and excellent food. Thanks to all who suggested it!

      Just guessing, but "Mill on the River" based on the pics, etc at the end of the post.... that being said, it would be good to put the name in the title

        The name of the restaurant is clearly given at the end of the post with a web link.
        I can second the accolades given to TMOTR. Have eaten there several times and never been disappointed.
