Excellence service, impressive foodI had a friend from out of town visit and offer to meet for dinner. I had heard of Millennium for awhile but never had a chance to go, or a friend who wanted to try an upscale all veggie place, so this was my opportunity. While I'm a vegetarian, my guests weren't, but I knew they were be impressed with the food, and the freshness and they certainly were. The service was excellent (we got a complimentary appetizer!) attentive, and not overly fussy. The food was fresh, in-season and very well made. I will certainly be back for another special occasion.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Vegan Restaurant!I went to Millinium while in San Francisco on a business trip. What a fantastic find! The food was fresh, flavorful, and satisfying, and I think the mushroom flatbread might be one of the best things I've ever eaten in my entire life!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchMillennium seems to be biased towards mothers, as there is no equivalent father's day brunch. Still, I had a great time with my mom. We arrived early and were the 2nd guests seated in a nice booth that could fit a party double our size. By the time dessert was served, we were already satiated. We took most of the dessert back home.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNicely prepared and quite tastyWe went for Mother's Day dinner. Small plates are reasonably priced and all quite tasty. We had mushroom salad with papadams, fried green tomatoes and wilted spinach salad. Bread and lentil spread comes with every meal. Had 2 specialty drinks and wine. Pricey but tasty. For main meals we had Teff burrito, tamale and artichoke/fava bean gratin. Fava bean gratin was by far the best. All quite pricey, but preparation is beautiful and all were flavorful. Seems like a lot of money for what you get though. Had great service and it is a pretty dining area and bar. Would definitely go back, but just for drinks and small plates.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMhi-end vegan farei'm an omnivore and my wife is vegan. every time we come here, it is a treat. we have always done some sort of tasting menu and have never been disappointed. this time we got an extra bonus as each of us got different dishes for each course which we shared. also, the unique hotel california adds favourably to the overall ambiance. great anniversary dinner experience!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experienceAs a vegan, it was awesome to be able to order anything on the menu. As a foodie, it was awesome that everything we ordered was fantastic!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wonderful ExperienceMy daughter and me celebrated Mother's Day early at Millenium while visiting from out of town. We are vegetarians and found the food both creative and delicious. The staff is warm, friendly and serviceful. I will definitely be back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressive menu, vegan heaven!Impressive menu, vegan heaven! Everything we had was delicious.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!Carefully crafted food and great service! Some of the best food I've ever had! Loved it! This is my new favorite place.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing for Vegans and NonvegansWent here for my anniversary dinner with my carnivorous husband. We both loved it. From delicious, interesting, and unique food to great service and a warm ambiance -- it was top notch. I got the seasonal 5-course tasting menu with wine pairing. As a vegan, What a treat to be able to eat everything on the menu. Fairly expensive but mostly just because I did chefs choice. You could probably get a meal for 2 including wine for 100 if you ordered straight from the menu. I will definitely be back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMYUMMYYou don't have to be a vegan to enjoy the menu at Millennium. I found this restaurant when I was searching the web for a suitable (and not all of us were vegetarians) restaurant while visiting San Francisco last year. It was so delicious that I returned! The menu is creative and tasty. The entrees are reasonably priced and the service was impeccable. In a city with thousands of choices for meals I give two BIG thumbs up for Millennium!!!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Vegetarian FindThis was a great place because it had a lot of dinner choices on the menu which is unusal for a vegetarian resturant. The food was very good. I wish there was a place like this in Seattle!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI think the food is fantastic.I think the food is fantastic. I've been to Millenium before and was amazed with the outstanding quality of the food. Our server was surly and cool (not cool!) so my friend, who had never eaten at Millenium before, was not able to focus on her fantastic food. Unfortunate and unusual.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA definite MUST for VeganA definite MUST for Vegan Foodies!

Ambiance and foodIt was hard to choose among the delicious-sounding options. Our server, Steph R, was knowledgable and efficient. Our entrees were slightly delayed so she brought us a nice side dish to enjoy while we waited.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI was in San Francisco forI was in San Francisco for a conference and took a large group of non-vegetarians. Clean plate club all around! I went back a few nights later with my wife and a couple friends and had another terrific meal! Between the two trips we tried most things on the menu. We didn't have anything that wasn't great. The desserts are particularly good. If I lived in San Francisco, I would come here all of the time!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious for all. SpecialDelicious for all. Special for vegans, who don't have many options for an elegant restaurant.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I'veOne of the best meals I've ever had. Complementary gluten free tempura from the chef, incredible food, all vegan, great service. I'll keep coming back every time I'm in SF.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest All-Vegan Restaurant AroundMillenium is one of the finest all-vegan restaurants around. I have lived in Portland, Oregon and San Francisco and it is definitely top 3 places to eat great food.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA FavWe visit SF once a year to see ballet. And, we always have dinner at Millennium!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time is the best I'veEvery time is the best I've ever had there!!!!!!!!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMUnevenMillennium's concept is an admirable one and which it largely executes effectively: "Millennium's mission is to be a resource for those wishing to explore a healthy diet, avant garde cooking," We were a party of four recently and largely enjoyed our meal. The Shaved Parsnip & Carrot "Noodles"salad was disappointing (Flavors and texture just did not connect) but the Wilted Bloomsdale Spinach & Gravenstein Apple Salad worked well. We had three entrees, which ranged from 'OK' to excellent. The Brik Pastry Purse is a thing of beauty but again the combination of flavors and textures was 'off'. The Maple-Thyme Glazed Smoked Tempeh was as good as other reviewers have suggested. The best of the lot was the Malay Style Red Lentil & Coconut Curry.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMecca for vegans!The food was amazing, the service was personal and attentive.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDidn't mind having to waitDidn't mind having to wait for table, they should have had waitress to take drinks order. Felt abondoned waiting for table. Waitress was great, appreciated that she decanted the wine we ordered her recommendation was spot on, gave the wine a whole new life. Food was great. For Vegan resturant they weren't trying to make you think you were eating something you weren't, Original menu. Will be going back.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVegetarian Food Fit for a CarnivoreSo I'm not a vegetarian. After hearing a great review of Millenium from a co-worker I brought my special lady for our 1-year anniversary. I'm very critical of vegetarian food: having grown up vegetarian and switching later in life, I've always been wary of bland raw lettuce plates. I like fat. I like protein. Sometimes a steak is just necessary... Or is it? Millenium is the kind of restaurant that makes me question that. The food is so good it reminds you that you can eat like a vegetarian and not miss out on anything. The portions are generous and the food is savory, hearty and delicate. The trumpet mushroom starter is amazing and the coconut curry is one of the best dishes I've ever had. You simply cannot order incorrectly here.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful food. Wonderful,Beautiful food. Wonderful, fresh ingredients. Great variety. Innovative pairings. Attentive, kind service. Superb.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing, delicious, wonderfulAmazing, delicious, wonderful vegan dining. Highly recommend even if you are not vegan. The flavors are beautiful and the setting is delightful!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe very BEST food we haveThe very BEST food we have eaten in a very long time. Excellent!!! We are from out of town and we will now make Millennium a 'must do' every time we travel to San Francisco.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and drinksThis is vegetarian/vegan food at its best. You wouldn't imagine the meal you are enjoying is anything other than a fancy meal. No food in "quotes" here like at other vegan restaurants.
The tasting menu changes twice a week. Even the bar specials change based on seasonality of ingredients.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMakes you want to become veggieWe had booked a table for 10, ended up coming with 14. The staff was quick in setting us another table in a separate room. The room was without windows unfortunately but very quiet and private. So we were very happy to be able to be together as a group and had great table conversations. Even though most people were not vegetarians, they all adored the food.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Gourmet Vegetarian RestaurantA gourmet vegetarian restaurant with quality food, and great ambiance, the attentive staff make this one of the nicest places I've eaten in SFO, whether you're a vegetarian or not. You'll need a reservation as they are very popular.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Gourmet Vegan DinnerI'm neither a vegetarian nor a vegan but I LOVE this restaurant. The food here was amazing. We booked this for my daughter who is 12 and a vegetarian. Both her and my husband also loved the food too. They couldn't stop talking about the meal the next day. My son, who is 10, was fine with the food. I wouldn't bring every kid here but ours love it. I think he really wanted the tamale that I ordered and not his risotto which was very good. The sweet potato tamale dish was amazing. Best one of the night. But, the food from the chef's tasting menu was great too, especially the salad and the "purse" entree filled with mushrooms, etc.
We will definitely be coming back here the next chance we get. Don't forget to make reservations.They fill up fas4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe last three times we visitedThe last three times we visited San Francisco we ate at Millenium. Probably the next three times we will eat at Millenium.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!!My daughter and I loved the experience.
The food absolutely delicious, the service was great
- attentive but not over the top.
A booking in advance is recommended if you don't want to
miss out on a fantastic culinary treat.
We loved it so much we have purchased the recipe books.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPossibly Best Vegan in USProbably one of the most creative and tasty all-vegetarian/vegan restaurants in the U.S. The food is excellent, well prepared and original without being too "froofy". Non-vegetarians would enjoy the variety of dishes here. Server was very knowledgeable and attentive. We will definitely dine here again.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome location for vegetarianawesome location for vegetarian cuisine. we will be back. it was worth every mile from san jose to visit this restaurant.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMillennium is for Vegans,Millennium is for Vegans, Vegitarians as well as Carnivores. If you like food prepared and presented well you will enjoy Millennium.Service was very good, atmosphere was nice, not too loud so you can enjoy your coversations.
A bit pricey but not overly so for what is offered.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAn unfair amount of awesomenessAs a vegan, it can be hard to find food at most restaurants. I had a similar problem here, but this time it was because there was so much amazing sounding food to choose from. I can't wait to go back and try more from their menu. The wait staff was also tremendously polite and helpful.
Four non-vegan friends joined me for dinner and they really couldn't have been happier with their food, too.
The worst part of the whole experience is that I don't live near them so it will be a while before I can return.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic vegan and glutenFantastic vegan and gluten free place for people with dietary restrictions.....and the meat eaters with them don't even miss the fact they are not eating meat!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you are vegan or just wantIf you are vegan or just want something different then it doesn't get any better.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible food!Absolutely fabulous food! Everything on the menu was vegan. That's a real treat for me. First time on a long time that we could all sample each others plates. Every plate was incredible. Extra care was made on presentation and texture of the foods in addition to unique flavors. Service was a bit slow and drinks arrived late. We ordered wine before the entree was served but it did not arrive until we were almost done. This was after asking twice where the drinks were. Other than that we had a fabulous time and we plan to come back soon.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA really special experience.A really special experience. Absolutely delicious! The mint ice cream dessert was out of this world! Our server was fantastic!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExquisite vegan dinner!Wonderful vegan food within walking distance of Union Square.
