    Unbelievably delicious food! The crab cakes and trout were perfectly prepared and presented. Our server was attentive and friendly. We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and we could hardly hear each other over the noise! If you want a quiet intimate dinner for two, Milton's is not your place. The complimentary dessert to celebrate our anniversary was a nice gesture.

    Eaten here on several occasions - group and couple. The food is always excellent and service very good. I love the in house garden vegetables. Outside dining during warm weather is terrific not a lot of outside traffice. Wine selection is limited but quite good. Dinning area inside is warm and inviting - not too crowded.

    This restaurant is the definition of Southern dining with a modern twist. The servers were great, educating us on the history of the location and the unique attributes of the restaurant like the 1 acre garden on-site that grows much of the veggies on the menu. Everything we had was delicious and we ate on the covered porch which was a great experience. Can't wait to go back!

    Excellent service and wonderful food. Initially was not happy about about the early dining option as 545 was the latest opn table reservation until 9, but I have to say we were able to have a drink and take our time before ordering and eating. Never felt rushed and thoroughly enjoyed it and made an 8 pm movie!

    Our party of 8 included people who had traveled in from around the country for a weekend gathering. Milton's surpassed expectations for every palate in the group as you can't go wrong with meat, fish or whatever special is on the menu that day! Food was well prepared, nicely presented and delicious. Service was good for a large group. The staff was friendly and flexible with some of our unique demands.

    8 of us recently celebrated a friend's birthday at Milton's Cuisine and Cocktails. The food, atmosphere, and service were outstanding. The cocktails, however, were dreadful. At our prompting, our server took a sip of each drink and he was embarrassed about how awful they were. We were not charged for the drinks which was lovely. I recommend that if you want to be known for cocktails, and I'm assuming you do since it's in the name of your establishment, you hire experienced mixologists. The drinks we had that night were reminiscent of my hunch punch days in college.

    Lovely venue, our server (Drew) was outstanding. Sadly, the shrimp and grits was so overwhelmed by garlic that it was barely edible. Makes me wonder if the chef tastes the food he sends out. This is my second - and last - visit to Milton's. On both, the food just wasn't anything special. Too bad - it has everything else going for it.

    This is our first time at Milton. My wife had heard of this place from her sister. This is our new favorite restaurant!!! The food and people were wonderful. My wife loved the salmon and I had the new york steak. Both were the best we ever had! We had a little slip in the service and they bend over backward to make it right. More than I would have expected and that is why i gave them an outstanding service rating. When we arrived they even gave us a tour of the gardens in the back where they grow their own food. Great place. We will be back with friends.

    There are not enough adjectives to describe the incredible food at Milton's....very flavorful yet familiar. Ambiance was very important in selecting the right restaurant for my brother and his wife who were both celebrating birthdays. They came from South GA and I came in from Texas to meet We were not disappointed. He was intrigued by the 150+ yr. old building with the original wood floor and walls. the wonderful veggies grown in the backyard garden are incorporated into their menu..Yum. Great food,ambiance, great service all wrapped up in a very relaxed atmosphere. We all had a great time and left wanting nothing. Milton's is truly "cuisine" at its best and sets the bar for which other restaurants can only strive to reach.

    A lovely place. Our server, Steven, was terrific. My companions fish looked and apparently was good. But -- and this is a big but -- my vegetable plate was pretty awful. Although the description on the menu sounded wonderful, nothing but the beets had any flavor. The spoon bread was burned and obviously scraped from the last remains of the pan. I expected vibrant, flavorful vegetables and was really disappointed. The food was piled on the plate as if it had been served up in a school cafeteria. I sure hope they will rethink their vegetable plate -- this place could be my favorite in Atlanta if their vegetable plate lived up to its description.

    Great Service, Food & Drink! My kids and I went out for my birthday. After waiting over five minutes at the table, I asked a passing server if he knew who was supposed to take care of us, he said he'd check and get back to me. 30 seconds later he was back saying he's not sure what happened, but that he'd take care of us to prevent us from waiting any longer. This guy rocked!, I wish I remembered his name. He guided us through the specials like a pro, later he explained the reason for our wait- our server had got hung up at a large table- it happens, I understand, but I hate when you're just sitting there waiting for someone to acknowledge you and employees just keep passing you by. Milton's MORE than made it up!!! We'll be back!!

    I can't say enough about my meal. Had brunch and the service was very good. The food was incredibly fresh and perfectly prepared. The old farm is beautiful as is the garden in the back where they get most of their veg and herb. Do absolutely go for brunch and order the spicy bloody Mary. The beat I ever had by far. Eggs were incredible, creme brûlée was evil, even the muffins were super tasty and fresh. Love this place!!!!

    We had reservations and still had to wait 30 min to be seated. We enjoyed the wine. the sweet potato soup was excellent. The main courses that were 3 different fish were over cooked. I was surprised at the lack of quality in the entrees. This was our first visit to Milton's and we were all disappointed, especially since we had been told it was quite good. We will try it again. With the feedback that we had beforehand, it must have been an off night.

    Milton's Cuisine and Cocktails remains our favorite restaurant because the food is remarkably delicious, the wait staff is perfect and the environment is warm and hospitable. As has been our habit in recent years, my wife and I introduced two close friends to the restaurant this past weekend, and they loved it and concluded the evening by saying they want to go back. These are individuals who have dined in every fine restaurant in Atlanta and are well traveled internationally. We've had the same reaction from every person we have introduced to Milton's. There's a great selection of entrees and appetizers and cocktails, and the restaurant adds new and interesting items regularly.

  • Very good and what to avoid.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 8/16/2014
    Our table of four had the fried green tomato appetizer which had too much breading and not enough tomato. Three different entries; halibut was tremendous, pork loin was excellent. However the special, delmonico/rib-eye, which was recomended by the waiter was extremely disappointing. Presenting it covered in sauce, though good looking, made it impossible to see where and how to cut it to avoid the excessive unrendered (even for a rib eye) fat that this particular offering had. I am very very familiar with beef anatomy and what to expect from the different cuts. This rib-eye should not have been on the menu and i should be smarter than to order steak from a "contemporary new southern cuisine" restaurant. Pecan pie ice cream is tremendous.

    Our first visit to Milton’s Cuisine was a very pleasant evening. The atmosphere is casual and relaxing. Our server, Jay, was a pro. The food was very good. We tried the braised pork belly. It is not the slow cooked melt-in-your mouth style – more like a baked thick bacon and very flavorful. The sesame Trout and blackened Salmon were both high quality dishes with excellent sauces. The sweet potato shrimp fritters were the most notable item of the evening. We enjoyed our experience and would recommend this restaurant.

    Miltons is the perfect spot to dine and relax in the countryside. The food is carefully prepared and the atmosphere is wonderful for quiet conversations. Our party of four were celebrating a special occasion and Miltons was the place to be. From the attentive valet to the cordial waiter to the delicious meal, it was perfect. Well worth the short drive from Alpharetta.
