    The service was terrible we couldn't even read the menu asked the Garson even the head waiter for help and we were ignored. They were catering to.the usual crowd. We could.not even read the wine menu asked them again for someone to bring a light or a candle...it.took them about 20 to 25 minutes for someone to bring the candle to our table..and after they did they were just steering at our table...it was a terrible terrible experience

  • Mille Fleurs, Elegant French Dining
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Mille Fleurs is a special place for the wife and I. We honeymooned in Paris and have celebrated our anniversary several times at Mille Fleurs. The ambiance in enchanting, the wait staff are attentive and prompt without hovering and the food is beyond delicious. On presentation alone it rates the highest marks but the flavors outshine even that. Mille Fleurs is an elegant dining experience that I would highly recommend for any lover of French cuisine and ambiance. It was like being back in Paris.

    I have heard great things about Mille Fleurs for years and the rumors are right on. I enjoyed a "girls dinner" with 2 of my good friends during restaurant week and the food was delicious, the staff was excellent and the ambiance was wonderful. We enjoyed a duck salad, smoked salmon & bacalo tart (my fav) and a grilled melon salad for starters. Our main entre's were halibut and hanger steak - both were excellent, the steak was cooked perfectly- even for someone that favors fish over steak. :-) Our desserts were good, the Pot de Creme was much better than the torte. It was a chocolate, caramel with sea salt combo. Yum! Wine list was great. Had a lovely Rose. We will be back again!

    We were seated at a quiet and elegant table per our request. Our server Sean was most informative and attentive. We ordered the Restaurant Week menu with Oysters from their regular dinner menu at an additional charge. The Oysters were very fresh. The appetizers of Roasted Bell Pepper soup and the Chopped Kale and Duck Salad were truly superb. The chef's complimentary rabbit dish was super as well. The Hanger Steak on Rosemary Skewer and the Pork Schnitzel would have excelled with additional seasoning. The desserts of Quark-Blueberry Torte and Chocolate Cardamom Pot de Creme were washed down with Espresso to complete the meal. The impeccable service contributed greatly to our wonderful experience. Thank you.

    4 of us dined her on Thursday night 8/4/2014 to celebrate my husbands birthday. What a find this lovely restaurant is. The service was excellent - attentive without being intrusive and the food was marvelous - we loved every dish we ordered. I can recommend the Seared Bison aperitif and the Poached Salmon, Wiener Snitzel and Venison entrees are amazing. The restaurant very kindly presented with husband with a complementary dessert for his Birthday. The piano bar was in full flow when we finished our meal. All in all a great night and a fantastic find. We will certainly be going back.

    Upon entering the restaurant is beautiful courtyard, where we were greeted and taken to be seated. The dining room was elegant and romantic. The food delicious, we went with the duck kale salad and dover sole. The service was impeccable. The moscato wine I ordered was the best I have had. We were celebrating our anniversary and they went the extra mile to make it special. I highly recommend. Capture what makes the restaurant unique.

    We had an excellent dining experience at Mille Fleurs. Our meals were cooked to perfection and delicious (filet of beef, salmon, wiener schnitzel and one other; salads and lobster bisque were delicious). Our wait staff were excellent also. The atmosphere lovely. We had an extended dinner and the staff didn't make us feel rushed or that we over-stayed our welcome. We were able to enjoy our conversation at leisure. Thanks!

The champagne selection is top shelf, the menu is hand selected and prepared daily with fabulous flavor and presentation. Great place.

    We love Mille Fleurs for special occasions. We went most recently for my birthday. I ordered the fish cake for an appetizer and the duck breast for my entree. Both were outstanding! My husband enjoyed the lobster bisque, but his soft shell crab was a bit fishy. Understandably it is the end of the season and they are shipped from a long distance. Probably not the best choice. Everything else including all the wines we tasted were exceptional. We will definitely return.

    First & foremost the service is overwhelming as you're constantly approached by 5 different people throughout the dining experience instead of having just one waiter. Their menu has very little to offer for vegetarians so that was the first downside before the dilemmas even began. I went ahead and ordered a salad requesting dressing on the side. It arrived drenched in dressing and when one of the many people came by I asked if it was possible to find out how much was used he replied "not much I don't know an exact amount" (well I have my personal health reasons where I do need to know exact amt). Anyway long story short they remade it within 2 mins I got a bed of greens w/ 2 slices of beet. Voila! No room to write the rest just skip it!

    We were seated in a room with a fireplace, but not the one in the photo. However, it was right next to the waiter's service station - commotion. The table was a rectangle table with the two chairs on the same side facing this fireplace/service station... not a normal seating arrangement. The Arnold Palmer (a basic iced tea & lemonade drink) had a funny taste... learned it was made with lemon bitters - not lemonade. We never received the bread basket and our waiter had a chip on his shoulder from the start. I would NOT recommend this for a special occasion, but the group outside seemed to be relaxed while they enjoyed the music. So, for a more casual, outside dining experience this might work... but the price point is anything but casual.

    I was disappointed with the food. It wasn't anything special. The fish dish that I ordered was bland and did not resemble the description in the menu. I did mention this but was told this was their best fish dish. As a result, they did not charge us a corkage fee for the wine we brought. I have had this fish dish in other fine restaurants; I feel I know what it should taste like. The ambiance is fine and the main waiters do have a french accent when they greet you.

    We obviously came on the wrong night (Tuesday, June 17). There was a wine-tasting group of 40-50 persons, and apparently most of the attention went to them. We waited...and waited...even to be given the menus, then eventually asked if we wanted a drink before dinner. Literally, a 30 minute wait at our (lovely patio table) before we could flag someone down. Our dinner was adequate, but obviously the chef was very busy with the other group and the meal was not up to what we remembered from the past. No apologies were ever offered for the embarassingly slow service; only after sharing our disappointment with the kind maitre'd were we told the wine group had overwhelmed the kitchen. Very disappointing, to say the least.

    As a Rancho Santa Fe resident for over 20 years, I can honestly say that Mille Fleurs just keeps getting better. The food was superb--I love the fact that there were not only two vegetarian dishes but also that venison was on the menu--most definitely something for everyone. The staff was considerate and every request was met. Thank you.
