    Food was served quickly. Server was great. Complimentary hors d'oeuvre. I sat in the heated all year round enclosed veranda. Had some delicious scallops and pasta. The only problem would be the price, and the amount you get for it. $25 for a burger? I think the cheapest thing for dinner was the mushroom ravioli at $19. But lots of great selections of beef. The bar was nice, not too slow, not too loud, and a relaxing post-dinner atmosphere. Good bartenders.

    We arrived early and it was busy but we were seated right away. Our server was prompt and efficient. We had a bottle of Porcupine Ridge Syrah, my husband ordered the Sinatra Style New York Strip ($39) and I got the Stilton Filet Mignon ($36). With the steaks, you get your choice of only one side, which seems a little skimpy to me. Hubby had a loaded baked potato and I ordered fries, which were not terribly good. Should have ordered the mushrooms instead. There was a slight problem with my order as they originally forgot the Stilton Butter but it was delivered quickly to our table. The steaks were fabulous. We had the Crème Brûlée for dessert which was delicious. All in all, a good experience, except for the fries.

    We had a mishap with the food itself, but the manager more than made up for the mistake. He was extremely apologetic and rectified the situation immediately. His efficiency and helpfulness made our experience a good one. So much so that we would consider coming back again.

    Had a great time last Friday night. We were upstairs in a booth. -just what I requested. Started with French onion soup and the calamari. Both were amazing! Then my date had the Filet Mignon, and I had the 16oz Prime Rib cooked exactly how I wanted. And we shared a crème brulet for dessert. And we each had a glass of pinot grigio and fresh coffee during dessert.

    10th or 11th visit but first since the new menu. Prices have gone up considerably and choice down. Service was pleasant and attentive. Noise and bustle was moderate, perhaps not surprising given it was less than 1/3 full. Enjoy the location for convenience and atmosphere but they alone can't overcome the deficiencies of the new menu and pricing. $25 for a burger? Come on!

    We had been to Miller tavern for New Year's Eve and enjoyed it, so we thought we'd try again for Thanksgiving. For $27, we got an "amuse" (a single spring roll) and a turkey dinner. The turkey dinner was very good and just the right serving size, but for $27, I thought a dessert might be included. Nope...not at all. So, for two dinners, two desserts and a bottle of very nice Syrah (Jackson-Triggs Delaine), the bill came to almost $150. I've spent that at Rosewater and felt I got more value for it there. By the way, even with a $15 corkage fee (and only $1 on Mondays!), it would have been cheaper to bring the wine ourselves. Also, it would have been nice to get a bread basket.

    This was the second time my family has had Thanksgiving dinner here and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Traditional, but each item on my plate was extremely flavourful and well-seasoned. And just the right amount too. Room for dessert and we didn't have to roll ourselves out the door.

    This is a great location with good parking. On this occasion, the service was friendly but slow. The salad was limp and uninspired with an underripe tomato slice on top. The main course was a two person shared prime rib with veg. The mashed potatoes arrived on a steaming hot plate but were themselves tepid and crusted over - sent these back. The vegetables were too undercooked to be worth eating. The prime rib was spectacular. They did not offer coffee after the meal but brought a delicious cinnamon liqueur shot - wonderful Still wanted coffee though and had to have it after the liqueur.

    Specifically asked for a quiet table when we booked our reservation as our son has hearing difficulties - they placed us right next to the entrance to a large private party that was quite loud. Food was disappointing. Had to send steak back - not cooked as we had asked. Service was good and waitress was very nice but overall disappointing.

    Compared to other $$$ restaurants around I'd say it is better than most. I didn't go with huge expectations but it was fair value given the price you pay for a two or three star place these days. Nothing remarkable for the variety of dishes; but simple respectful, attentive server which is nice for a change!

    Dined on 9/21/2014
    We dined here for a celebratory lunch for my mothers birthday recently. Unfortunately, we had the most horrible service on this particular occasion. The waitress had to be reminded several times to bring water for the table, milk for my son and then completely forgot the coffee I ordered with my dessert. No apologies were offered for these misses. However, in my opinion the worst part was her rude response when my husband asked what sides that came with a dish. Her response was, "I don't know, I've never had it. I can another waiter if you really want to know". He didn't trouble her with such an outlandish request! This was an aberration because in the past I've dined here and enjoyed outstanding service from the waitstaff.

    Delicious food, good service, but we sat around for quite a long time before our entrées came. Beef did not come exactly as expected (asked for medium, got medium rare). Disappointed that the seasonal dessert was sold out, but the desserts that we did get were very good.

    I took a friend for her birthday, and the day was nice enough to eat on the enclosed porch. I have been to the Miller a few times before, with mixed reviews. Brunch was very good, and reasonably priced. A very good pastry basket accompanied the first course (a Bellini and Sangria). I had eggs with truffles and my friend had a cobb salad. The portions were good, and everything nicely presented. Dessert, an apple cake, was excellent. The only issue we had was the turkey in my friend's salad seemed to be shaved; but the turkey in the other salads we saw nearby was clearly carved from a turkey breast.

    the Miller Tavern is a kind of retreat into warm surroundings, calm and reassuring service, a broad spectrum of menu items, and good feeling. It has been said that at a fine restaurant, one should remember the quality of the occasion, not the waiter's name. So it is at Miller Tavern: memorable for the right reasons!

    We had 2 visitors from Calgary and one of them had never been to Ontario before so we wanted something special. It was PERFECT! We live 3 hours away and well worth the drive. The food was spectacular, seasoned beautifully with wonderful presentation. Very pleasing to the eye and a delight to eat . I was also impressed with the variety of items on the menu...there was something for everyone. Our party of 6 were all pleased with our apps and entrees. To our surprise the restaurant presented our table with an assorted seafood platter that had an array of tender morsels to tempt our taste buds........ this took our dining experience over the top and made it even more of a special experience. Great!

    'Found the service and attention excellent. There were 5 of us and we all had our steaks either over-done (quite well-done) or too raw. One was sent back because it was 'blue' (we received a replacement n/c). We thought it surprising in a place that specializes in steak, however, we had a good time that evening anyway.
