Mill Valley Kitchen
Thank you!Our 10 year old grandson is a Type 1 Diabetic. With the nutritional values listed in the menu, we as grandparents can enjoy taking the grandkids to lunch. Not only are your food choices amazing but we come especially because you provide the information we need to keep our grandson healthy.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding !Mill Valley maintains a very high degree on food, presentation and service. For these reasons, we return often with various friends.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Healthy FoodThis if the best, healthiest restaurant in the Twin Cities. All of their selections have nutritional information. Their preparation of food was excellent. The serving sizes are somewhat smaller than normal, but that fits with the healthy nature of the restaurant. Will definitely go there again.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!It was our second time and I can say that it was just as delicious than the first time, what a pleasant evening. For sure we will be coming back again and again!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMenu is a gemI love this menu. Not only is the food great, the menu gives you all the details like calories, fat, protein...etc.
The flower arrangements are gorgeous too, adding to the wonderful atmosphere.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect celebrationThank you for helping us celebrate. Perfect happy hour and dinner. And Monday night half priced bottles of wine!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative and consistentThe food is always fresh, offerings unique, and the emphasize quality over quantity. Wait staff pleasant and well trained.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMmulti goodI'm vegan my mother is NOT. I was sglad to find a quality resturant that we could both enjoy fully, on mothers day. If you're vegan you do NOT have to have pasta. There are other choices. Which is so nice. And if you eat meat, they have a very god steak, according to my difficult to please mother.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT food, very progressiveFresh, organic, flavorful, and healthy. Prices are a little steep, but an accessible way to get an upscale "foodie" experience without completely breaking the bank. Pretty good service (not crazy good, but friendly and knowledgeable).
And the food, frankly, was DELICIOUS.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of gluten free optionsThe restaurant has numerous gluten free options, and lists calorie break downs. Food was excellent as well as service. Desserts are small so those that feel too full, should at least be able to eat the shot glass size. The restaurant is very beautiful, though not a quiet restaurant. We will definitely go back. This neighborhood needed a nicer restaurant, so good choice.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerWe loved our anniversary dinner at Mill Valley Kitchen. The food, service, and ambiance were all very good. We especially liked the "just right" portions. We don't mind taking home what we can't eat but having just the right serving size was kind of refreshing. The bite-size key lime pie is an especially great idea!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSmash hit at Mill ValleyThis past Saturday, we introduced two old friends to this fine restaurant. Our server was friendly, smiling and extremely helpful as she explained the history of the restaurant, and this evening's menu.
Three of us chose the swordfish steak, and one the pork tenderloin. Each of us found the choices delectable and substantial.
Desserts followed. Tapioca, butterscotch, black and white pudding, all delicious and just the perfect size after a hearty meal.
We were hooked from previous visits. I think my friends are, too.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous ServiceWe come to this restaurant at least once a week. It has a large selection of gluten free meals. The owners obviously are concerned about healthy food, but always served attractively with abundant taste. It has been fun tasting this menu and I have never been disappointed. It has a lively feel inside, always busy, but not overtly loud. The one thing that makes this restaurant one of my very favorites is the incredible service that you always get. This staff has been trained by the experts and they will do anything to make your dining experience memorable. ( notice how they all smile!)
Judie O'Brien5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my 2nd visit to MillThis was my 2nd visit to Mill Valley Kitchen and it was equally as impressive as the first. Outstanding sea bass and mozzearella, tomato, basil flat bread the first time; mixed green salad with salmon and chicken, tomato, kalama, feta flat bread this time, which was delicious as well. But being a sugar addict, the desserts are my favorite aspect. They have a selection of mini desserts - as our waiter appropriately described - three lady-like bites. Killer lemon curd, delightful key lime pie and decadent triple chocolate. The perfect ending to a delightful dinner without overindulging. The wait staff here is excellent!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with family @ Mill ValletNice restaurant! Thought the food was good ...my only complaint would be the size of portions. Will definitely go back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMill Valley Kitchen is oneMill Valley Kitchen is one of the best restaurants in Minneapolis.

I really liked the verity and selection on the menu, and I loved the nutrtition information printed on the menu.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than ParisMy friend and I spent time in Paris last year and we were disappointed that we didn't have a fabulous, memorable meal. Since we returned home we've had several fabulous meals, including the one we had at Mill Valley. Our dishes were full of flavor and it was obvious that all of the ingredients were fresh and cooked to perfection. We will be back...again and again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMJust greatVery busy so I was glad I had a reservation. Food was outstanding warm mushroom salad and bay scallops. Just great. Service.

Our waiter was "Outstanding"--very helpful with the menu and with any other questions we might have had.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic FreshnessAlthough the patio was full, we had a perfect table right next to the screen wall. They open up a large part of the wall next to the patio and the fresh air is just like being outside. The food is always delightfully fresh, never tastes frozen, like herbs and grains were growing in the back. Sea Bass paired with a light pinot noir and the fresh air was perfect. Delightfully fresh.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI had breakfast there forI had breakfast there for the first time and it was great. Loved the chicken sausage muffin sandwich. Wish the breakfast items were more extensive and that they opened earlier then 10:00 am. Great place to sit outside on a nice day.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSat outside. Noisy as sirensSat outside.

The food is fresh, delicious and exciting. The ambiance is crisp, (without feeling "stuffy") clean and comfortable. It's a new favorite! Love the many choices for people whose diets have special needs: gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian. Also greatly appreciate the use of organic and locally grown!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at Mill ValleyWe have eaten at Mill Valley Kitchen three times now. The food is so healthy and delicious! A favorite is ordering two or three vegetable sides with a small piece of chicken or fish. The scallops are wonderful. The burger is so so. The music is not great--doesn't seem to fit the overall ambience. The servers are very nice. This last time, we waited 10 minutes before ours arrived at the table and we had to ask a manager if we had a server--an oversight of some kind. Overall, the food is yummy and works with my many allergies, the decor is lovely and the staff sincere and helpful.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe decided to take our familyWe decided to take our family to Mill Valley as a thank you for taking care of our dogs while we were on vacation.

My husband found the spice in the white bean accompaniment to pork at his limit for spice. I'm glad I ordered the steak instead, which was perfect.
We will return, and our out of state relatives will bring business clients when they are in town for projects. They lauded the quality of the Mill Valley Kitchen's food.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience!Wonderful dining experience! Beautiful space! Very friendly staff! Lovely food!

The servers are always so nice!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHealthy gem!I have recently been trying to lose weight, which makes eating out nearly impossible. However, I was so happy to see that the menu was full of items that were healthy and sounded delicious. I didn't feel limited at all, but the others with me that WEREN'T trying to lose weight didn't feel like it was too light or limited because of the healthy menu. I think anybody can find something no the menu they will like regardless if they eat healthy normally or not. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed lunch withThoroughly enjoyed lunch with friends there -- had salmon and black bean/corn salad. Best salmon I've had in a long time. Totally delicious and better than I was anticipating.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful and healthyOne of the most beautiful restaurants in the Twin Cities. Dining room is open and spacious. Noise level lower than most restaurants. Food is very good and seemingly prepared in a healthful way. I would definitely recommend.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choice.So many healthy choices. All members of our party of four chose a salad topped with meat or seafood. The salads are innovative and delicious. This is one place where I order dessert because they are small and just large enough to satisfy that sweet craving after a meal. The flat brea pizzas are tasty and can easily be shared by four people. Nice wine and beer list and a few specialty drinks. I enjoyed the "Prairie Companion" which is a twist on the Cosmopolitan. Ginger and cinnamon gave it a delicious flavor and cut down on the sweetness of this standard drink.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal sources where possible,Local sources where possible, healthy choices can be made, wonderful soups.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI have never had a bad mealI have never had a bad meal (not even a bad bite) at Mill Valley Kitchen.

The wait staff is knowledgeable, helpful and friendly.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI am sorry that I don't rememberI am sorry that I don't remember our waiter's name. He was a delight! We were there Monday evening. I had to call at the last minute to say we were not going to be on time, so I wondered if we could change the time of our reservation. The hostess on the phone was totally accommodating. our waiter was very knowledgable about the food and wine list and had a great personality to boot.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait for our next visitWe had a Sunday midday meal here. Many options ranging from omelets to fish entrees.
Enjoyed Sea bass on Quinoa and edamame appetizer.
Good service, friendly and non-intrusive.
I am looking forward to my next visit.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMCould be romantic, great neighborhoCould be romantic, great neighborhood place. There must have been 5 failies in there with 3 or more kids. Definitely a family spot.
The food was excellent. We will definitely go back but probably won't treat it as a date night sort of place. Not with that many kids and that much activity.
All and all the place was put together well.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for anyone with foodGreat for anyone with food allergies or other dietary needs and still delicious!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the fresh ingredientsWe loved the fresh ingredients presented in flavorful dishes!
