    Milton's is one our favorites and it never disappoints! We took friends of ours that have never been before( it is both our anniversaries) and the seasonal specials were great and the menue favorites are always a solid choice. Service, food and bar choices are outstanding!

    My wife and I are fairly new to the area and had been looking forward to trying Milton's. Despite having made a reservation for a Sunday night, we arrived to discover that they did not have a table ready for us in one of the main dining rooms. We were escorted past the rest rooms and open kitchen to the porch, which was cold, deserted and completley lacking in ambiance. The best I can say is that our server was friendly and attentive. We found the food to be mediocre, everything (crab bisque, chicken, trout) overseasoned--the bisque easily exceeded the maximum allowable sodium for a week--and really nothing special. Maybe it was just a bad night; but at any rate, certainly not a good first impression.

    I had a late brunch reservation for my bestie's birthday scheduled with Milton's. Having never been, I was unsure what it would be like. The food was amazing. The service was impeccable (even though we were there on the late side of brunch...our servers never waivered and even offered to put in a third drink order!).

    This was a disappointing meal to me. I really wanted to love this place. I live very close and was hoping it could be my go to quickly for a great meal in the future. I have only heard wonderful things about Milton's. I can't say I feel the same. I wasn't impressed with our waiter or my cold dinner. I ordered the crab cakes and lemon grits. My dinner was cold. I had to get my waiter's attention to come over. He took it but when it came back the rest of my party was done or almost done eating. No one came ( waiter or manager) to check how my meal was when it was delivered the second time or apologize. I can't say I will rush back.

    I randomly picked a brunch spot near the Roswell area for my Aunt's birthday and I couldn't have been more pleased with Milton's Cuisine and Cocktails. The food, service, and ambiance were all amazing! Our wonderful server, who's name I unfortunately cannot recall, even came outside with my family to take a photo of us! I will definitely be back for another round. Thank you all!

    This is the 2nd time I've been to Milton's and again it was for brunch. It does not disappoint! The servers are friendly and helpful (even if it's not your specific server), the menu plays on the safe side but still has some fun options. They serve delicious Biscuits, muffins and puff pastries while you wait (perfect for distracting a child while waiting for your brunch). A must visit!

    I really enjoy eating at Milton's. I have never been disappointed there. Two of us sat on the patio this time and the only drawback was the level of sound from the live musician... he was excellent, but we were probably closer than most to the speakers so it was loud. Other than that, everything else was awesome... food is never disappointing.

    We had a group of 7, and were seated at the end of a front porch area. It was private and quiet, and we were there nearly 3 hours. The food provided a good selection for a number of limited diets (gluten free, vegan, etc.) The waiter was very good, but he seemed to forget about us after a while. A good experience.

    We have been to this restaurant numerous times. This is the only time we were disappointed in the food. It was my birthday and I ordered the salmon like I always do. I specifically asked for the salmon to be cooked all of the way through and it was barely warm in the middle. Our very friendly waitress never stopped by the table to see if our entrees were alright. I didn't want my husband to know that I wasn't happy, it would have ruined his delicious dinner and also his mood for the rest of the night. Normally I would give this restaurant five stars all around. Such a disappointment this past Saturday.

    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.

    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!

    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.
