    The cocktails and appetizers were amazing. We ordered 4 small plates and 3 starters and shared amongst a party of 5. The entrees were decent but we felt there was too much going on in regards to flavor in a few dishes (extremely salty). The best entree we ordered was the tamale, but even then nothing to amazing given this restaurants reputation. The most confusing dish was the Eggplant. There was just too much going on in one dish. Entrees were big portions which we were not expecting, but all we kept thinking about was how much we wished we had just ordered more starters. If we were to go back it would just be for some cocktails and appetizers. The service was excellent! So friendly, and accommodating to gluten allergies.

    I was looking a spectacular meal and Millennium exceeded my hope. Although the menu is in flux because of the fresh ingredients and creativity of the chefs you may count everyone finding a meal that is spectacular [even those who are not vegetarian]. I chose the tasting menu with wine parings. The waiter chatted with me about my food style and I saw him confer with the chef to choose that night’s menu for me. The food was creatively delicious without being unidentifiable. The service was spot-on. Make a reservation at least a week in advance for a weekend night.

  • Great food, service questionable
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/26/2014
    Although this is a vegan restaurant, any foodie would be impressed with the very well thought out and creative dishes. The food was so good the first night, we went back the second night. Our only complaint was the service. As we walked into the restaurant, the host was on the telephone and did not acknowledge us for several minutes as we stood there waiting. This happened once again on the second night, and, it was a different person manning the desk. Our server the first night had a bit of an attitude, as if we should be thankful to be served. Although she did warm up a bit throughout the night, two bad first impressions in a row stick with you. Our server the second night was much more likable.

    The food & service are fine, but the prices are pretty extreme, especially considering the ingredients are mostly vegetables. And I didn't see anything about the food being organic. I did like the fact it was fairly quiet, which is unusually pleasant for a San Francisco restaurant.

    I ate there in November 2013 and had a fabulous meal. Eating there in August 2014 was like night and day. Food not good at all. We were overcharged by three dishes and by $80! and the waiter tried to blame the register. Wouldn't go back or recommend it. Very dissapointing...and embarrased I took my family there.

    My husband and I changed our flight so we could eat here a few years ago, and remember it fondly. This year, we brought our teenagers along. One is an omnivore, one is a vegetarian, and they were both blown away by the food. It was even better this time around. Our waitress, Hannah was delightful, the service was flawless, and the food was divine. We made another reservation on our way out, so we can enjoy this again while we're still in town. Millennium has been the food highlight of our trip, in a City of spectacular restaurants. If you love food, you'll love Millennium. Between the five of us, we tried most everything on the menu, starters, entrees, and desserts. Next week, we'll be trying the 5-course tasting menu.

    Love the restaurant, been before. Im from out of town and was really looking forward to certain items to eat that I have ordered in the past. I booked for the last night of my stay and when I got there I was extremely disappointed to find out it was a special tomato night and they had a fixed menu. Although I enjoyed the food my friend was limited due to food restrictions so only had one of the two choice to pick from. Also it was a fixed price of 60.00 each. My bill is usually high any way but I can get the bread and appetizers of my choice. If I had booked with the restaurant direct may have been better but booking through open table there needs to be a way of knowing this is a special night. I could not change as it was my last night.

    Amazing Vegan meal of intricate preparation and flavors. In previous visits I spent a lot of time reading through the detailed descriptions of the different menu items, often not fully appreciating what my meal was going to be. This time we did the prix fixe menu and had the simple choice of picking one of 2 entrees. All courses were a delightful adventure in taste and satiety. Compared to a few years ago, this meal still seemed hearty and filling but noticeably lower in fat and oil than previous visits - I think that is an improvement, very impressive meal in a class by itself. I could not make these dishes at home and have not found any other restaurant that even comes close.

  • It's vegan,but ...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/19/2014
    ... It's great. We would never have thought that "thoroughly gourmet quality" and "vegan cooking" could go together, but they do at Millennium. The dinner (for four) was excellent. The staff is young and friendly--typical of California, but not smarmy or over-ingratiating as we've sometimes experienced. Desserts weren't quite up to the level of the dinner, so you might consider skipping them (or just getting ice cream or sorbet), but they certainly weren't bad. The entrees were really excellent, though.

    This is more of a treat because of the high prices, but it was such a fantastic experience. I had the Taste of Millennium (the chef gives you 5 surprise courses) and every single dish was more than incredible. Our servers were charismatic and charming. Oh, and did I mention the food was delicious? As a vegan, it's difficult to find much variety in my restaurant options. But this place is wonderful for vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike!

    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!

    The food was outstanding. It is not "simple veggie cooking" but highly complex with multiple ingredients and preparations in each dish. I wouldn't like to eat like this every day--but it is special and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks to the waitstaff for attentive service and excellent wine recommendations. This is the place to take people who think that veggie/vegan cooking is boring or lacking in nutrition!

    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...

    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.
