    I was really excited to try this place after viewing the sample menu online. We went with a large party of people, some vegetarian some not. The sample menu was really easy, fun foods that I felt non vegetarians would love. The actual menu once we arrived was much different, and even as a vegetarian most menu options did not look great to me. We all had a good time, but the food was just ok. Some dishes were far better than others. Mine (a teff crepe) was definitely a miss. It was also a very very loud restaurant, so I would not recommend for a relaxing night.

    Do NOT allow a vegan menu to put you off whether you eat meat or not. There are few chefs today exhibiting such thoughtful, creative, well conceived dishes anywhere. That also applies to the dessert menu. The Pistachio crusted Portobello Mushroom was sublime, as was the Lemon and Blackberry Tiramisu. Ambiance speaks of energetic elegance and the service - in this case Devon- was extraordinary, far exceeding the white glove service I've received in Michelin rated establishments. A "must Go" in San Francisco!

    Took the 18yo here for his birthday, as I had been promising him for years. The desserts stole the show. I am no stranger to excellent desserts, but those were two of the most excellent I've ever tasted. Blackberry compote drenched cake layered with blackberry mousse and the tangiest lemon curd ice cream, plus some savory caramel sauce artfully swabbed about the plate. The other was a fig tart... Moist fruits atop vegan creamy goodness in a nutty shell, and orange sorbet with melon bits. We had our eyes closed as we savored the flavors...

    A friend of mine recommended Millennium to me, it is his wife's favorite restaurant. It is organic and vegan....even if you are a carnivore, you will love this place! It is a bit pricey, so I would consider it a special occasion restaurant. It also has ambience. We will definitely be going back there on our anniversary.

    We met our 22 year old nephew and his girlfriend on their first trip out to San Francisco. She is a vegetarian and we thought we would try this highly recommended restaurant near downtown where they were staying. Well, all of us found something to really enjoy and the service was outstanding without being too noticeable. I would recommend it and use it again.

    It is not easy to find gourmet vegan food and Millennium is special. We enjoyed a big variety of cocktails, appetizers, salads, mains, and desserts and each one was delicious. The optional wine pairings with the prix fixe dining were great, too. It was fantastic, healthful food presented beautifully. It is our all-time favorite restaurant.

    Excellent vegan restaurant. Many dishes are just vegetarian dishes. A few have protein, such as tempeh. Fine dining, suitable for entertaining business associates. Service is friendly, not pretentious. Staff can recommend dishes, and describe anything on the menu in detail. We had four people sharing three things for each course. Restaurant is very popular, it is a little noisy.

    Hands down the best vegan good in San Francisco. Service not so much. Asked the waitress what are some of the popular dishes she said she can't answer that, but will tell us some of her favorites. Okay, I'm okay with that. However, she named the dishes and before we could order our start dishes she walked off. Also, there were a number of birthdays that night. The other tables had the wait staff sing happy birthday to them. She walked over to the table put the piece of cake down and walked off. No happy birthday, nothing. I really didn't care, but it bothered my friend who said she specifically asked them to sing happy birthday. Again, the food was great, service was not so pleasant.

    We went here to celebrate a 40th birthday. As always, food was excellent. Unfortunately, even though we let them know in advance we were celebrating a birthday, our server never brought the candle lit dessert. We were very disappointed by this omission. While perhaps a small gesture on the part of the restaurant, it really was an important part of the celebration. To have it missed put a damper on an otherwise enjoyable evening.

    Wasn't expecting much from a vegan restaurant, but was I ever wrong! Everything, from the Pistachio Stuffed Dates, Grilled Flat Bread to Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Layer Cake, was simply amazing and elegantly presented, along with impeccable service and relaxing, quiet ambiance. The chef creates magic using fresh seasonal ingredients, so the menu changes frequently, and it's global cuisine caters to every palate whether you're a carnivore or vegetarian/vegan or a flexitarian like me. I am already looking forward to my next visit soon.

    Made a reservation through OpenTable. Was not notified of any changes to the menu (not even when i received a confirmation call from the restaurant the day before). Arrived on time and had to wait for table. Received Prix Fixé menu and told after being seated that it was their once a year Market Special. Both the appetizer and the entrée had eggplant which was poorly prepared - completely underwhelmed by the presentation and mostly the flavour. All of us left most of the entrée on the plate. The salad and the 2 tbsps of chilled gazpacho were good but not enough to warrant the price. There are many restaurants in the area that accomodate vegetarians/vegans which i would choose over this restaurant.

    We happened to have our vegetarian daughter in town the week of our anniversary. Usually we find something else to do in the city, but this time we set aside just time for dinner, and the drive up from San Jose...because, worth it! Accommodation for my allergies and everyone's palette: Trumpet mushrooms! Jerk tempeh, as delicious as it is surprising. Share the thyme-roasted carrots. Many tastes--especially salads and garnished sides--get to blend on the palette and not before keeping everything interesting. Make a reservation because Millennium fills up and diners take their time...though we were accommodated nicely despite a significant traffic delay on the way in.

    My wife and I travel all over the world. We are vegan and have been for over ten years. We have not found another restaurant that can compare to the delightful sensations Eric Tucker and his able crew at the Millennium generate for all to enjoy. We own both of their cook books and we are anxiously awaiting the next edition. The tastes are novel, fulfilling and suitable for special occasions even when I prepare his meals at home. Combining excellent gourmet foods with the outstanding service and attention the entire staff presents, creates an ambience that is unforgettable. Even a meat and potato groupie can walk away from the table with awe and appreciation for a special meal. What more can I say? You have to try it yourself.

    This is my favorite restaurant in the world. Sometimes when I come to San Francisco for a conference I come here every night so I can work my way through the menu. The food is beautiful looking, creative, and tastes wonderful. The chefs create an outstanding mixture of flavors. This time around we were just here for the weekend and I brought my spouse here for his 50th birthday. We had the summer harvest special selecting each of the two entrees with wine pairing for each course. This was a first rate culinary experience for a 50th birthday or anytime. I could not see meat eaters not also loving this place.

    In their voice recording you hear when initialing calling, they announce that they are the "premier destination" for vegan food. And after dining there, I must say that they are. Compared to the other vegan joints around San Francisco, I think they have the most innovative dishes that even myself, an omnivore, can appreciated. The stuffed dates and the pistachio crusted mushroom were both incredible.
