    Try the restaurant after reading about it in Atlanta magazine. Love the Westside area of Midtown and this restaurant is a gem! It had such a cool vibe! Loved the setting and use of the space. The food was great and the service was spot on. We each tried a different specialty drink loved them! Our appetizers were tasty the trout pate was amazing! All of us tried a different entree. They even were able to change a sandwich into a salad! We all said we would be back soon!

    I have dined at MU several times over the years and it's always been one if my favorite resturants in Atlanta. My last visit is making me wonder what's going on there. Food was still very good but everything else was average to be kind. Waitstaff condescending (unfortunately, this has been consistent for my last 3 visits), side dishes arriving late, was sat outside, while covered and heated we were not asked if it was ok.. it gives a different experience. Just a disappointment for one of my favorite spots.

    I went to Miller Union on a recent trip based on a recommendation of friends who lived in Atlanta. Chef up for James Beard Award, I asked for a cocktail with certain ingredients - and got a "Lovely Day" - was wonderful. The food was local, fresh, seasonal. My freind had chestnut ravioli. I had pork, with farro and veggies - very earthy. Prepared perfectly. There is a bit of an industrial surroundings, but seating is very luxurious. Our waiter was enthusiatic and attentive, but not intrusive. A great place to find.

  • The robo-waiter killed the night
    IMFunn
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    Our waiter refused to council us on our food and drink choices. If we asked whether a cocktail was on the sweeter or dryer side of the spectrum, he robotically repeated that all of their drinks were "perfectly balanced," which makes no sense and led to half our party ordering an unpleasantly tart cocktail. If we asked his preference between two entrees, he robotically repeated that all dishes were perfect in flavor, portion, and presentation, and that he therefore had no preferences. This is not how a good waiter acts. The food was good, but one of the entrees--the chestnut pasta--was a quarter the size of the others. It looked like a tapa plate, that's how small we're talking. Mainly, the waiter was just the worst. I honestly won't go back because he set such a bad tone for our very expensive night out.

    Notable specials this day, parsnip soup and bbq chicken sandwich with chips and house-made pickle, special ordered dessert assortment, flavored soda, coffee service, all grand. Watchful service, patrons mostly well-heeled, younger, making-it types with one or two power tables working. A nice mix for the right price.

    The restaurant is sort of oddly divided into different rooms and, while some have a very cool vibe, the room we were in was a little more corporate feeling. There was carpeting, no windows, and bright lighting - which was a departure from the rest of the restaurant. We were celebrating our anniversary and would've appreciated a more romantic atmosphere. The ambiance notwithstanding, food was outstanding and the service was great. Highly recommend the trout mousse as an appetizer and the duck as an entree.

    This was the second time we ate here. We wanted to give it another try, thinking that maybe we didn't order right the first time. Alas, we still didn't love it. While the service was very friendly and the ambiance excellent, the food was just okay. We tried the egg appetizer this time based on the rave reviews and it was good, not great - not much of a celery taste. We also had a bean salad that was okay. My husband liked his chestnut ravioli, but my pasta with clams was way too salty from the ham ingredient. The sticky toffee dessert was also just okay, particularly compared to other sticky toffee desserts we've had at other places. We did love the Miller Thyme cocktails.

    The service was the only thing that cost Miller Union a star. Once seated, a server didn't show up. I asked someone if she was our server and she said no, but she could be. We had some other glitches, soup didn't show up but still were charged. The positives: the setting is the old Killer Union Stockyard. The ambiance is really cool. And the southern cuisine is as good as it gets. The fried chicken special was over the top.

    Farm to table deliciousness but got out-ordered by my dinner partners. The chicken was meh, the broccoli rabe tough, but my nibbles from other plates told a different story so we will keep this in mind for another visit. Our server was great, gave wonderful descriptions and made us feel cared for without hovering.

    Our service was outstanding. We started to re-order a bottle of the first wine purchased at the bar, and our server recommended a different bottle in the same genre. So awesome that she was able to identify our taste and suggest a different excellent experience. Her attitude was not overbearing and she managed to read us correctly. It takes confidence without arrogance to do that. She was also training a new server who make some mistakes but did a terrific job at the same time. We forgave his eagerness to take our plates and glasses before we were actually done ;) And, the bartender was outstanding. Really really good job. Last but not least, food, happy to see persimmons and other fall-inspired southern produce on the menu. Quail. Yum.

    Miller Union was delicious! They have a great atmosphere with impeccable service. Our waiter had an immense knowledge of the wine list, as well as the menu and how everything was prepared. He made great wine/food recommendations. We had one of their signature starters, Farm egg in celery cream with grilled bread. It was perfectly simple and totally delicious. Their menu is always changing, but if everything is as good as the Rabbit and the Duck were, then you will love every bite.

    The staff was friendly, accommodating, and on point. The food was very good but won't win over anyone looking for an inspiring dining experience. The area we were seated was very tight and felt like a closet. The ambiance of this area is poorly executed. I'm unsure if all seating for couples is this way, unfortunately we will not likely return unless we have a minimum of 4 people with us.

    This was my second visit. First time for lunch. Had the veggie plate. It was wonderful. The fried okra was perfectly crispy. The succotash was the bomb! Got to order the "famous" ice cream sandwiches that are only on the lunch menu. The maple ginger was our favorite. Peanut Butter was ok, and I love all things peanut butter. Can't wait to go back.

    This place was very well reviewed. Everything about the place was great, location, interior, service. But the food was bland. The farm egg is a milky egg soup, the salmon spread tastes like the supermarket stuff, although the pickled okra that came with it was delicious. The porkchop was meh, the dessert strangely came as dry puns cake with a yummy whipped spread and some sort of jelly and Nutella concoction. This place is fine, big groups, or business meetings. It's just nothing special in a city crawling with awesome food.

    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.
