    The quality of service my wife and I received was excellent. Our waitress "Victoria" is one of the best I have sen in c a Very long time. It begins with her great smile and her professionalism, the quality about her and the way she wants to be sure that the customer is very happy makes it for the ideal dining experience. We would recommend that anyone who goes there request her as your waitress as she id the best. Then Doug "Piano Man" Hamilton is awesome. He brings back the era of times when a couple could go to diner at a fine restaurant and enjoy a great meal and listen to great dinner music. Experience was great and would recommend this dining experience to anyone especially for a evening of pure romantic dining with special person.

    We were sat at a wobbly table that instantly caused the incorrectly chosen vase for the oversized flowers to tip and spill water all over the table. One of our "clean" napkins had food on it. We were at least moved to a new table. We were told the bread pudding was excellent. I had them check to see if there was coconut in the dish as I am allergic, which solicited a visit to the kitchen. We were informed that I was good to go and then not even twenty minutes later that they were out of the dish. There were not many patrons in the restaurant, it should be obvious if you are going to be out of something in less than twenty minutes. The food we did have was nothing amazing except the Sauce Nouveau which was quite excellent.

    Was going to the theater so the staff was aware as there were other patrons in the restaurant as well attending the theater. Even though most tables were occupied courteous and prompt service was had. Food out quickly enough but no rushing. Free glass of wine or dessert was offered to theater patrons which I thought was a nice perk. Everone at our table was satisfied with the food.

    My husband and I went to Milano's to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. They had an excellent wine list and great service. The food was wonderful! My husband had a ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. We have already said we will be going back for our next date night. The restaurant also gave us a free dessert for our anniversary. It was very nice!

    I have yet to be disappointed. I love, dining at Milano's. The whole experience, from drinks to dessert is excellent. Just when I was so delighted with the taste of the dish I had ordered, the chef enters the room. I had the pleasure of telling him, how lovely the taste of his creation was. Thank you , Sammy. For bringing such a touch of class to our little town.

    It's been 10 years since I last had dinner at Milano, I was surprised at the remodel, actually liked the old style it was more intermit. Food, for the most part, was very good, however the pork was over cooked and somewhat dry. The drinks were very good but my bill was padded with a top shelf, Crown Royal, liquor that I had not requested (charge removed). All in all a good experience and I would return.

    We made a reservation for 8:45. We checked in at 8:40. Hostess says "the party at your table is almost finished, we will call you when they are done." Okay, cool! Next we gave our name to a man and he says " you can go wait in the bar, have some cocktails, and we will come find you." Okay, cool! What wasn't cool is that we say at said bar for over an hour waiting on our "almost" ready table! Not to mention people that arrived after us, were seated before us. The food wasn't bad, in fact it was pretty tasty, but it did NOT make up for the fact that I had Valentines day dinner at 10pm! The bartenders were lovely though!

    My wife and I were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary and decided to have dinner at Millano"s. Upon arriving I noticed that they had done some remodling. After we were seated and I had an opportunity to absorb it. I realized that the new look really was very romantic with a more modern decor and just enough of the old original building showing to give it a look that I really love. It was very quiet so my wife and I could talk to each other without shouting like at most of the resturants elsewhere. The service was excelent. Shannon our waitress was informative, honest and very charming. The food was outstanding as usual. I had the Millano Filet cooked medium and it just melted in my mouth.

    Recently, we celebrated my daughters graduation from Nicholls State. I can say that my dining experience to celebrate this occasion could not have been better. Shannon, our waitress was outstanding with an incredible attitude and promptness. The piano guy supplied an atmosphere of perfection. The ambience was just right, and the decor made foe Judy's the setting we were looking for. As you can see, we simply could not have chosen a better place to celebrate a very special occasion. We are all still smiling about that night and how good of time we had. I really do want the staff and kitchen to know how awesome of an experience we had. It was absolutely a Five Star Experience foe us! Thanks to Milanos for a job well done !!!

    THE FOOD AND SERVICE WERE EXCELLENT. THE PIANO PLAYER WAS VERY ACCOMPLISHED, BUT SUFFERED FROM THE HARD FLOORS AND WALLS WHICH CAUSED THE ACCOUSTICS TO BE LESS THAN DESIRABLE. THE PIANIST COULD NOT AVOID BEING TOO LOUD BECAUSE OF THE ACCOUSTICS. HE DID HIS BEST, BUT THE ECHOS AND REVERBERATION COULD NOT BE OVERCOME. CARPETING AND SOUND ABSORBANT MATERIAL ON THE WALLS WOULD REMEDY THE SITUATION. I UNDERSTAND FROM THE MANAGER THIS IS IN THE WORKS. STILL A FIVE STAR RESTAURANT!

    Their website has a seasonal menu on it which appears to be current. My wife and I were thinking about a particular entree on the menu and this is why we decided to eat there. When we arrived we were advised that their website was "under construction" which was not true since the website was fully functional and in fact was a different website than the old one (restaurant previously had a name change) meaning that it had in fact been updated and the menus was " winter" which it is. We were then advised that nothing on the seasonal menu was available. Their regular menu has only basic fare and is decent but unremarkable. We ate there anyway because it was too late to switch. Potential diners beware of a bait and switch issue with the menu.

    Have gone here many times. This last time was for a Valentine's date with my husband. The experience and food were wonderful, topped off with the soft music being played on the piano and the rose handed to me before we left. We had the 4 course dinner which was a great value. It included salad, soup and chicken parmisian for my husband, duck strips and pork medallions with asparagus for me, and a desert for each of us. We did have a bottle of wine that was pretty pricy but well worth it. All in all, it was a great night!

    Me and my husband went for New Years Eve which was our Anniversary. It did take our server a minute to get to us, but the manager handled it well and after that we didn't have any problem with service. Management was excellent and took care of everything well ... serving staff is excellent and Edgar to help. The food is outstanding and I must say that I am now officially spoiled. I am not sure that I will ever be able to eat seafood anywhere else again. I must recommend the roasted oysters for an appetizer and the Seafood stuffed fish of the day. Also, the cheese cake with the almonds in the crust is INCREDIBLE! I cannot wait to go back :)

    This was out first time dining since the renovation. The decor is nice and bright, but not very cozy and inviting. The service was mediocre. The food was good, but far from excellent. The prices were very high considering the quality and the portions were average. Was horrified to see appetizers that were up to $16 - REALLY??? If you didn't have the money to pay for the renovation, then you should have left it like it was. We liked it MUCH better before the change.

    We were a tad bit disappointed with our experience since the new ownership. We really miss the ambience of the old dining room. Though we are part of the younger crowd, the new modern decor just doesnt fit old Houma. In addition, the flounder dish was begging for seasoning and a sauce! The chef should have never sent a plate out the kitchen with burnt asparagus. I have to say that the original menu still exists and I hope they never change it. The duck strips and sauce were the highlite of the meal. In addition, the seafood stuffed tilapia was perfectly cooked and seasoned accordingly. Overall, we expected more from one of two dishes than what was presented.
