Fresh: Since the robust 17th-century picaresque tale is not enjoying any current vogue, the success of "Restoration" can be considered a very pleasant surprise. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Lively, lavish and grandly acted pageant. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 27, 2008

Rotten: What virtues the movie has are cosmetic. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A garishly gilded, gloriously overstuffed costume drama. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Feb 27, 2008
