  • Incredibly Bad Service this time.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    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!

    The Miller is on a landmark North York site. It is a fine dining establishment and delivers good food in a pleasing surrounding. More casual then a similar downtown place would be, it is a solid choice for any meal.

    I always thought the Miller tavern was more like a bar scene but my friends brought their kids and it was family friendly. We got a private room, which was great for the kids, and the service was amazing. The food was great too. I had oysters and seafood platter and it was delicious.

    It's pricey for what you get; $16 for burgers and $6 for sweet potato fries. But I still think it ranks as one on the best burgers in the city.

    Pretty patio dining. Our waiter was very accommodating. Overall, a lovely evening. Only problem, there is no escape from smoking. We moved tables only to have more smokers around. As there three tiers for the patio area, perhaps one can be dedicated to non-smokers.

    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.

    the Sirloin ordered as medium rare came thin and medium well. Staff did not hesitate to offer to replace it. The replacement came thin and rare, not medium rare, although this time it was at least moist and tender. I ate it, but not what I preferred and not what I ordered. Relaxed atmosphere. Good for our business conversation. Wine list great but over-priced.

    Overrated overpriced with inattentive hostesses and indifferent service. Food is decently prepared but bland. Although I reserved the table 10 days advance they made no effort to offer or time a patio spot even though requested in advance as well. Small gesture at end, chocolate liqueur to go with our coffee on the house, but by that time it was too little too late. If you are in the area it is a nice setting with some historical significance to Toronto - but in a word - meh.

Food was good, presented nicely but above all our service was wonderful. Very friendly and attentive without hovering. Have booked our next gathering already, and look forward to more afternoons or evenings spent at the Miller Tavern.

    We went for dinner and the food of good quality, a little over priced and do not expect large portions. Desserts were exceptional. I am glad we were not in a rush, as the service was extremely slow. The waiter, Tye, claimed there were understaffed but other tables did not wait 30 minutes between coming by. If you go to sit on the patio, stay away from Yonge Street, as you can't carry on a conversation with the traffic.

    We go for the patio, mostly, which is really nice. Nice selection of fresh oysters for the appetizer, and they had a decent selection of wines in the $40-$50 range. Have never had a great meal there, though, especially for the price. This time I had the white tuna entree, which was nicely presented but a bit overlooked for my taste (I like very raw inside). Wasabi mashed potatoes were dry and lumpy, though, not really appetizing at all. Stuffed sole served on chickpeas was OK, but bland and again not great (my wife left half on her plate). We will return, no doubt, but only for the ambiance, and ever hopeful to be pleasantly surprise by improved food!

    On a hot summer night, the patio at the Miller Tavern is a perfect spot for casual outdoor dining. The setting sun was blocked by the history and on a 30 degree evening, there was no humidity. The mushroom soup was superb. My wife had the swordfish and I had the scallops and orzo pasta. They were sufficiently accommodating to give me chocolate gelato instead of vanilla with my apple crumble. all in all, an enjoyable evening.

    I've always loved the location. Starting to look tired inside. My biggest disappointment was the food. The prime rib was flavourless, seemed day old. The Yorkshire pudding was below what I could make from a grocery store freezer. My daughter had swordfish and she didn't like the cold quinoa salad combination. Pricey and seems like pub quality food at best.
