Really Nice TimeI took my Mom here on Friday night and we had a great time. We ordered off of the Pri-Fixe menu and it was simply delicious. The calamari was awesome and our waiter Phil (i believe) was incredible. I live 5 minutes from Mills Tavern and I guarantee they will be seeing me again :-)6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters & Tiger Shrimp wereOysters & Tiger Shrimp were awesome as usual! Lamb, Scallops & Short Rib entrees were all delicious. Service was great!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great NightFresh Matunuck Oysters, wonderful - brothy soup, amazing Wagyu tomahawk chop rib eye. Waiter - Matt (erudite) was fun and filled with good anecdotes and witty banter.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food! Great night!This was my first visit to Mill's, and hopefully not my last. Was here on a Friday night for my brother's birthday. He requested Mill's for this occasion. Our server Phil was top notch. The drinks and the food were fabulous. I had the salmon and it was served with the most delicious succotash. I tried a bite of everyone's dinner...the only one I thought fell short was the chicken. It is brined in buttermilk which gives it a slightly sour taste. Whatever it was served with, however, was very tasty. We all got different flavors of housemade sorbet and they were all fantastic but apricot and blackberry were my favorites. My father had the bread pudding and while it is not a typical bread pudding, it was AMAZINGLY good! Great night!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMStill one of our favoritesWe have dined at Mill's Tavern at least 10x over the past three years and have always been thrilled by the creative seasonal menu and first class service. When we treat friends from the west and midwest, Mill's is our means of introduction to the best of New England cuisine and ambience. The Prix Fixe menu (not available on Saturdays) doesn't leave one feeling deprived. Valet parking in their downtown location is a necessary convenience. The noise level can get up to "3" but our last visit was on a Thursday evening after local graduations and a calm evening. When the wait staff learned it was our anniversary we were treated to complimentary champagne.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food with great serviceWe had a great meal here. Lots of choices on the menu. Leans a bit to the gourmet side in terms of food offerings. We had short ribs (tender and delicious!) and ostrich (tasty!). Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Great evening overall.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur serviceOur service from Kyle (sp?) was impeccable! She made the experience memorable as we were celebrating my sister's retirement !! She made the dinner very special.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingExcellent food, great ambience and great service. Valet is free and fast! Wife had the filet and we both thought it was better than Ruth Chris'. Ostrich is very good and the lamb risotto app is incredible!
Great place to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth a visit. IncredibleWell worth a visit. Incredible service, tasty dishes and nice ambiance.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent All AroundThe food here was conversation stoppingly good! Trying bites of my husbands meal, he was trying bites of mine. It was absolutely delicious and it was during graduation weekend as well, so the kitchen was REALLY busy. Our server (Lynn I believe) was extremely busy herself and also did a fabulous job of making our party of two feel just as important as her other tables. I have already recommended others to this restaurant and I will most definitely be returning.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good but pricey...Mills Tavern is very good and very consistent. We've dined there regularly. Anything on the menu will be excellent and they pour a good drink. My chronic complaint has been that everything on the menu is (over)priced by $2-3.00+ compared to similar quality restaurants in Providence...so the value proposition is not as strong as other places. One of the specials on Saturday's menu was a steak for 2 priced at $105. I get that it's going to be a high quality piece of meat, but come on, that's still over $50/head. I can handle that in New York or Boston...seems a tad much for the local scene.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMJust Fabulous!!Have not been to Mills Tavern in some time because the service was not good when I was there previously...after 2 tries you get on my list of Do Not Return....Anyhow....I gave it a go last Saturday nigh with some friends--and it was in the midst of College Graduation Rush--we had a 8:15 reservation and were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation--the Hostess was the best and was so on top of getting patrons in out seated--great job! Our wait staff..the very best helped me pick the Scallops...yum yum yum...my friends had the Salmon and were still talking about it the next day....
In spite of the restaurant being so busy there was no rushing of us to get our order in or any of that...service service service...Plus very reasonably priced!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery welcoming. Good, well-informedVery welcoming. Good, well-informed waiters, Very good food. Nice ambience.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Service!It was my first time and I had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and the service impeccable.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous experience.This was a great experience for our combined birthday/Mother's Day celebration. Service was exceptional and the food, delicious from the fish to the filet. Pricey but worth it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT RECOMMENDATIONTHE DINING EXPERIENCE WAS OUTSTANDING FROM DRINKS TO DESSERT! WE HAD A GREAT WAITER,PHIL,WHO MADE SOME DELICIOUS RECOMMENDATIONS. THE CALAMARI IN A BLUE CORN MEAL AND THE BRAISED LITTLENECKS WITH CHOURIZO WAS GOBBLE UP! OSTRICH,SALMON AND THE FILETS WERE PERFECT AND THE BREAD PUDDING AND CHOC CAKE FINISHED OFF THE NIGHT! I HAD BEEN TOLD THAT THE SERVICE TIME BETWEEN COURSES WAS ON THE SLOW SIDE AND IT WAS... BUT IT ALLOWED ROOM FOR DESSERT!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionMy husband and I celebrated his birthday there the other night. We pressed the maitre-d to seat us at the window...so much more ambiance. The service was extra-ordinary and generous.
The food was utterly delish...I had a filet that melted in my mouth and I loved the bacon lardons and greens on the top.
The bread pudding was amazing...5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulThe food was delicious and the service was great. Try the asparagus.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSeated in perfect spot, nearSeated in perfect spot, near the window, secluded by a pillar. Server was attentive and friendly. We found many dishes on the menu to attract us. The food was very good, but we felt the busy flavor combinations didn't always achieve greatness. Some tastes were lost in the mix. I went with the prix fixe menu, a fantastic value. When next visiting Providence we will be back.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice restaurant, howeverVery nice restaurant, however a very limited menu.

As fine a restaurant as we've been to in ten years.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our dinner thereWe enjoyed our dinner there Saturday evening. Booked through Open Table and it is a little annoying that the restaurant calls you and you have to call back to confirm even though you made the reservation on-line...you receive countless emails as well.
Waiter was Jason? Needs to be a little quicker to refill cocktails.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA fabulous dining experience!Outstanding meal! Outstanding service! Every morsel was delectable. Our server was attentive but never intrusive, very knowledgeable about the menu, patient with our questions, and had a lovely sense of humor. Overall a fabulous dining experience!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall a very good evening,Overall a very good evening, but two areas that could be improved: there was a very long wait between appetizers and entrees, and then the entrees were not hot. Two wines on the wine list were no longer available in the vintages shown on the list, that should really be kept up to date.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and innovative food,Delicious and innovative food, would definitely recommend for a special occasion for this reason. Service was very kind and helpful and I'm not one to want a constantly hovering server, but there was more than a comfortable interval between check-ins at the end - took an hour from the time we ordered dessert to the time we received the bill (though we could have been more pushy if we had really needed to leave sooner). The primary thing that wasn't so good was the tables were too close together in our seating area so that the waiter next to us even knocked over our candle without realizing it and conversation was a bit uncomfortably close to our neighbors for a special occasion. If I were to go back I would ask to sit elsewhere.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 5th or 6th timeThis was our 5th or 6th time dining at Mills Tavern - always for a special occasion. As always the food and service were outstanding. We always look forward to the menu, especially the cocktails.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dinner and service.Excellent dinner and service. We were very pleases and will be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first visit toIt was our first visit to this Providence restaurant. Our party of 4 was seated promptly and offered good service througout the evening. The staff was well versed in the menu, slightly less so with the wine list but we were very pleased with their efforts. The food was straight-forward and imaginative. The meals and their pairings of sauces and garnishment were well thought out and worked together. I would say that the food wasn't over the top but, frankly, most people don't like over-the-top fare. I can't think of a single complaint. The portions, given the level of culinary skill, was generous; in fact, no room for desserts. We left knowing we would be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMImpeccable service. Well executedImpeccable service. Well executed dishes. Prix fixe is a deal.
