    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.

    menu was excellent---lots to choose from---every course from soup to salad to main course and dessert was well presented, tasty and high quality. The ambience on the partially enclosed porch was most relaxing.

    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.

    Was pleasantly pleased with the Miller, and surprised to hear it was the 10 year anniversary of it being open. So sorry we waited so long. 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.

    Popovers to go with prime rib tonight were not at all too buttery! Server was most excellent - allowed us to taste wine before choosing our glasses. We were also delighted with the ice cream/popcorn/caramel sauce presentation - dinner and a show! Also happy to note the prime rib dinner is not only on Sunday nights, so we will be back again, perhaps with even more friends in tow. The patio is lovely for Toronto summer.

    I love the Miller Tavern but this visit was a disappointment. I froze almost my entire dinner. I had to ask twice for the fireplace to be turned on or the AC to be turned down. Finally after a few other tables complained they did shut off the fan.The service was friendly but kitchen was slow. My chicken was dry. But my Creme Brule was perfect.
