A word from Millesime
The menu draws its inspiration from the classic seafood dishes found throughout France, and features fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from local waters and nearby farms. Dishes are prepared with straightforward French cooking techniques and bold flavors in a surrounding that is reminiscent of the great cafes of Paris. Red banquets, a marble raw bar and an open kitchen provide an unpretentious but sophisticated experience.

  • Punch Brunch Fail

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    Bottomless brunch was strictly oK. Beautiful space tucked in Carlton Hotel. For brunch, there are choices of two bottomless punches, neither great. Vodka one was gross. Tequila one was not boozey enough. Food was ok at best. Drinks brought out in pitchers, which is nice because you are not stalking the waitstaff for pitchers...especially with the waitstaff not really being helpful/present (even on fairly empty weekend). Maybe would do it again if I had to be near Penn Station or Herald Square; would never do it again on purpose.

    We came here for my birthday, and it wasn't very crowded at all. They were very accommodating with all of our requests. The oysters are amazing, and the hazelnut chocolate dessert bar was to die for! I would also recommend the chicken fricasse dish for anyone who wants to share. It is very romantic, and a great find in an area that is close to Herald Square.

    Ask that Katia be your server! The best, most personable service I've ever experienced in a first class restaurant. The food was better than very good. The environment is elegant and beautiful. I was a bit surprised at how empty the restaurant was on a Saturday night. I could see no reason for that. But from the gracious hostess to the outstanding wait service, right on to the bus service, I've never experience such charming helpfulness in what, based on appearance alone, would be a first class, snobby, super elegant restaurant. They truly make you feel like a special guest in an exclusive club.

  • Punch Brunch Lives Up to Name

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Our group of 3 enjoyed the unlimited Punch Brunch...possibly too much. The portion sizes were a little small to soak up all the alcohol before we ventured back out into the city, so we asked if they had any rolls to go with the jam sitting on the table. They did, but we found out later the rolls that were brought to the table were $12...not sure we would have ordered that if we'd known what we were getting for the cost. The Croque Madame was reliably delicious, however, and the Lemon Rosemary punch was divine.

    Three of my friends took me out to celebrate my 21st birthday here for brunch and it was wonderful! It has this sort of Parisian vibe with the interior (there was a quite large replica of the Eiffel tower) and it worked (I was surprised). The food was amazing, they comped a dessert for my birthday, the waitress was extremely nice, and they even let us move to the table we wanted when it became free after we placed our orders. There's a balcony area overlooking the lobby and it's beautiful. I'd recommend sitting there if you go to Millesime, if you can, that's where we moved to. It's has a somewhat removed feel, which makes it great for small groups.

    We were pleasantly surprised just how good the food was -- everything my husband and I had was delicious as well as nicely presented. The service started out strong but then our server kind of disappeared the last 1/3 of our meal. (The restaurant was almost empty so this was particularly odd unless the server was working the party in the bar 1 level below the restaurant). We were given dessert menus and were ready to order desserts and tea, but by the time the server returned to us some 15 minutes later we had decided we were too full and skipped it.

    We have dined at this restaurant several times over the past few years, and it has had its ups and downs. The tables overlooking the ornate hotel (originally a bank) lobby are great. The service recently was excellent, and I had the best dish I have ever eaten at Millesime: Fluke stuffed with a herb mousse. It was outstanding. My husband loves the crab meat cocktail (expensive, but worth it, he says). The desserts are also good. This is a great place for a special treat, and they did treat us like special guests.

    Was looking for a Boozy Brunch in Midtown, and this did not disappoint. We went on a sunday, and I was surprised how empty it was, but we were in a rush and got great service, and it was the world cup finals, so it was all good. We were given our drink pitchers so getting a refill was not an issue. Truly bottomless!

    Went for Mother's Day that at my request. Restaurant was basically empty. We were seated at a lovely table overlooking the hotel lobby. We sat, and we sat, and we sat and then someone brought us water. Eventually our waitress sauntered over. We ordered a glass of rose sparkling & 2 iced teas. Took forever. Maybe she was annoyed because we were ordering ala carte rather than the Punch Brunch?Ordered food immediately. Sparkling was flat-I took it to the bar for a replacement. Food came out in a timely manner delivered by efficient runners- fantastic. I was disappointed in the lackluster, unenthusiastic, completely bored server. Too bad. Maybe we will try it again but will all the restaurants in NY . . . we will see.

    Not much on atmosphere, and I didn't realize it was a "hotel restaurant" but I have to say the food quality was excellent. The halibut I had was prepared about as good as I have ever had. Each of our dishes (& courses) did not dissapoint. Wine list was short but ample & fairly priced. Glad I tried!

    Gorgeous restaurant and its huge! The set-up is a little strange because getting the maitre d's attention was awkward and weird. There's no clear place of where to go when you arrive- odd entrance. However, once we were seated the waiters are pretty friendly. I was surprised when we chose the aycd punch brunch that they brought us our own individual pitcher (per person)! Awesome but I think they took it to mean to only check on the table once an hour- biggest qualm. Might have ordered more food, but it was really odd. Food was good- nothing stellar but decent. I would definitely go again because as time went on the place got busier (never full) but I definitely noticed people ordering the burger A LOT. Can't wait to try the place again!

    Great location just 7 minute walk from Empire State Building. Great food and wine. Only problem was that the live music downstairs, on this occasion, was a rock band that was way too loud. Our party couldn't hear ourselves talk and waitress couldn't hear our order. We did ask if this was usual, which we were assured was not and everyone was very apologetic but because of the noise our experience was marred.

    Went for Saturday punch brunch and was expecting somewhat of a rushed and maybe even rude service. But I was so pleasantly surprised. The staff was wonderful! From the hostess who passed by and smiled each time, to our waitress who was sweet and very attentive, the servers who were courteous and say and the busboys who also had a very positive attitude and were great. Overall I would love to come back for a fun breakfast that is not too loud but has fun music and sets your weekend off to a great start. The food was fine, nothing bad to complain about, but wasn't like "wow". The decor of the restaurant is very very nice. Overall I think the staff makes this place even better.

They did give each lady a rose and took your coat at the table but for that price tag... I can only go for extreme special events.

    The food is always good here and I would recommend punch brunch to anyone, especially the short rib sandwich. The only thing was the service. I went with a friend this past weekend and while the food came out right away, our server was running back and forth for this other large rowdy table right next to us. We were only able to get one pitcher of the delicious cranberry vodka punch, and then were told that they ran out, all while trying to get the waiters attention for another one! I was not a happy camper after that seeing as the price is fixed on "unlimited drinks". They did give us 2 mimosa each after a complaint was made, however one of the reasons I was going back was for the punch.

    For $29 each, you can have a great bunch with a punch bowl. Trust that these punch bowls pack more than you think upon first taste. Moreover, they don't taste overly alcoholic like most punches which is nice (though dangerous, but what's brunch without tons of alcohol really?). The food was good - enjoyed the eggs benedict. Would definitely go back and recommend to a friend.
