    Our dinner at Miller Union was one of the best we've had in quite a while. For starters - we tried a couple cocktails from the bar, and both were great. They have a good variety of cocktails on the menu, as well as a good beer and wine list. We loved the butternut squash soup and smoked trout mousse appetizers, and savored every bit. The entrees had very interesting blends of flavors (such as the sauteed quail with buttermillk corn soup, mushrooms, bacon, and huckleberries) and tasted amazing. We had great service - the waiter was able to describe the dishes in detail and we could tell that he not only had tried the dishes before, but was legitimately excited about them. We'll definitely return if we're in Atlanta again

    It's been a few years since I've been back. The first time food was extremely good, service was good, ambiance was (and still is) stifling and claustrophobic. I hadn't been back because of the ambiance, but wanted to give it a second try since everything else had been good. Mistake. While the menu was supposed to have been updated for the season, there were a lot of things on it from years ago. Some were good the first time, so I reordered, however, I can't say the same again. Just like you can tell someone's put love into food, you can also tell when they are just phoning it in. And that's exactly how the remainder of the meal went. I wouldn't even mention price if it had been good, but for the price I definitely expect more.

    While I had seen Anthony Bourdain in this restaurant on his Layover series I did not listen to the noise level. (I truly wish I had). We went for my birthday expecting a nice quiet relaxed meal after driving for 8 1/2 hours from Va. Steve was our waiter and service was fine. The food was not the best I've had but there a miller thyme drink was fabulous!!!

    The ambiance is nothing to write home about, but the overall service and food, particularly the cocktails, we're very good. The flavors of the food range from average (such as the feta snack appetizer or the flat iron steak entree) to exquisite (such as the risotto appetizer or the roasted quail entree). overall, a very pleasant experience and some place I would visit again.

    Recently ate at MU for my boyfriend's birthday. We brought a favorite bottle of wine and paid the relatively inexpensive $35 corkage fee (inexpensive compared to the wine list, that is). We enjoyed both the "farm egg baked in celery cream" as well as the inventive "field peas, peanuts, charred tomato & pepper, ricotta, mint" starter. The egg was phenomenal, if not the texture I had imagined. The pea salad was fresh and interesting but probably my least favorite menu item we tried all night. For an entree I had the ravioli and the BF had the pork chop. Ravioli was good, rustic looking with a poached egg on top. The pork was phenomenal. Perfectly cooked and moist. We split the fig tart for dessert and loved it. SUPERB service. Great food.

    This was my first visit to Miller Union. I met a couple of friends for lunch. I had to wait and my server recommended the handmade sodas and the hummus to tide me over while I waited. I very much enjoyed both. For lunch one friend and I shared the croquets and a vegetable plate. Again, scrumptious. The food was simply prepared, and simply delicious. I haven't enjoyed fresh vegetables this much since I was a kid. They were fresh, and flavorful. The succotash prepared with bacon, was just awesome. We also had ice cream sandwiches for lunch. Really enjoyed the bourbon/butter pecan treat. Did not love the corn ice cream. That was probably a questionable choice, but hey... we had fun. Our server was great as well. Will go back.

The shrimp and watermelon salad: their Egg appetizer is amazing, and unique !; the duck confit and the grouper were awesome. Portions are not huge, but appropriate. We also had desert, and the plumb torte and the peach/pecan desert each came with ice cream and were awesome

    I had to schedule a last minute birthday dinner and Miller Union was available. I wasn't very familiar with the restaurant but kept my reservation for my family from out of town. Wow, we were all impressed. The food was incredible, especially the vegetables. Many restaurants view the vegetables as an afterthought but not here. My father, who is very commonly unimpressed, was extremely happy. The server was knowledgeable and engaging but not to the point of being intrusive. It was my first visit but it will not be my last.

    From the time we were greeted by Neal until we bid him farewell, we felt completely at home. This was my first dinner experience at Miller Union (I previously had lunched here) and all of the advance billings lived completely up to my expectations. My pork chop was superb and cooked exactly the way I ordered it. My son had duck and loved it and my ex had grouper and said it was the best she had ever had. The side order of fried okra left us wanting more. I, of course, had the egg in celery cream appetizer and I understand why this is a signature dish. I was so full at this point I could only manage the scoop of the day for dessert. Would loved to have tried some of the others. I will return soon.

    Picked this place for a business dinner. Ordered soup of day, creamed corn which was pleasant and very roasted-corn-like. The entree, a ravioli with duck egg and smoked tomatoes, was a miss. It was slightly sour and not very appetizing, All in all, I was disappointed for the gent who picked up the bill - $130 with wine. I won't likely return.

    We've eaten at some of Atlanta's best restaurants, but Miller Union rises to the top. First, we were greeted warmly though we were running well past our reserved time. Walking through the restaurant is a sensory experience in and of itself. The space is carved into an odyssey of distinctive rooms that flow from open & bright to secluded & intimate creating a relaxing atmosphere for comfortable conversation. The staff know their stuff, but are not the least bit pretentious. My wife commented that the steak was the best she'd ever had. I have to agree. (Don't tell my father-in-law; he wears the master grilling apron.) I had the veggie plate, which was such a cornucopia of local goodness, I had to make two meals out of it. We'll be back soon!

    Located off the beaten path, in a "transitional" area. Cool, contemporary "farmhouse-type" interior has great ambiance. Waiter recommended chef's "signature & award-winning" buttermilk-battered fried chicken special. It was a greasy, heavily-battered mess. Only a few edible bites, and served with skimpy vegetable medley (a few green beans, okra, black eyed peas and tomatoes). The chef should consider serving a (1/2) chicken breast, with two small sides (a vegetable and a starch, like mashed potatoes). This entrée would not be enough for a man. We left hungry. Thumbs up for its "sustainability" efforts; but based on value and price perceived on this occasion, I probably won't go back. Maybe should have ordered a sandwich or burger.

    It was a lovely spot. We requested outdoor seating and were seated in what essentially felt like a screened in patio, but it was very light and open with high ceilings. The feta appetizers was excellent. The pulled pork, kale, and carrot sandwich was my favorite dish. I had the trout with veggies. Thw veggies were good, and the trout was done perfectly, but lacked a little flavor. The croquettes were also very good. The ice cream sandwiches we had for dessert were AWESOME. There were three of us, and we each ordered a different flavor. Each one tastes like it sounds and they are all wonderfully delicious, though my favorite was the chocolate.

The food was good, not great, and for the money, I think we could feel a little more satisfied somewhere else. Overall a nice experience, and would recommend, but cautiously.

Food is bland, under-seasoned, and heavy on the vinegar with weird combinations that don't taste good. It's a cramped overpriced little place that sounds good on paper but does no deliver.

    Been to Miller Union before but it has been awhile. We took out of town guests and had to send three dishes back due to excessive saltiness. This was not just picky eaters but remarkably heavy-handed salt that all four people at the table agreed that it was simply too salty to eat. Server was excellent in how he handled everything but for a place that prides itself on Farm to Table freshness, this salt excess, something within the control of the kitchen, is so disappointing that I will not go back.

    Great meal. Strong server...knowledgeable and attentive, but unobtrusive. Bar was a bit too noisy for a normal conversation, considering the size. Specialty drinks were yummy, but the bartenders were inconsistent. I had 2 of the same cocktail made by 2 different bartenders and they tasted totally different. (also - one barkeep was friendly and the other seemed unenthusiastic about his job and serving us.)

    This was our second time at Miller Union. Our server was attentive and helpful. I thought the food was delicious. We particularly enjoyed the pork chop (though initially skeptical that it would be good with blueberries), the duck leg confit, and the fried okra. I will probably not be going back too soon, because the food is so unique it is hard for my non-foodie friends to find things they are willing to try -- which is everyone's loss. The atmosphere in the room next to the bar is only OK; it is much better to have a table in the back.
