Despite a bland atmosphere, the turret table we were seated at and the service we received was terrific! We were pleasantly surprised by the food- the cashew buttered sole and the goodnight kiss dessert were delectable and on par with the best of Portland's dining establishments.

Far better than expected for a hotel restaurant. Comfortable almost intimate room with a fire and comfortable seating. Delicious martini and excellent dinner and deserts. I would go again!

We were pleasantly surprised at the elegance of the restaurant, and the terrific service and food. The venue feels like an old fashioned setting without feeling "tired". Lovely experience and we will definitely be back.

We booked our reservations
We booked our reservations for Easter Sunday and arrived early, very pleased to be waiting in the very comfortable Map Room. We were seated before our reservation time and from beginning to end the service was superb. The attendants at the waffle and carving stations were always smiling and very congenial, as was the hostess and our waiter. The lamb was delicious and tender and our party was happy to have a choice of brunch or dinner offerings. We highly recommend 22 Milk Street for special occasions.

The food was great and the service was excellent. We were seated right by the fireplace so we had a great ambience. The dining room is small and intimate. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Excellent ... Lovely experience
We wanted to celebrate the completion of our daughter's first year of college with her. The restaurant received my OpenTable note about the special occasion and when we arrived, the table had a card waiting for our daughter congratulating her signed by the restaurant staff. This made her feel really special. Add to that the wonderful food, attentive staff, and quiet setting and I must say it was quite a night to remember.

Will Definitely Return...
We were a party of four who found dining at 20 Milk Street thoroughly enjoyable. My husband and I are foodies who have dined at many top-notch restaurants around the world, so we have much to compare it with. We even found it to be a far better experience than some of the award-winning, overly-praised other restaurants in Maine.
The food was well-prepared and the service was excellent: our waiter was well-informed and efficient, as well as very pleasant and accommodating.

The food was very good. The service was relaxed but attentive. The most noise was from the piano player who unfortunately was right next to our table. We found the meal pricey. My husband and I both had the filet. It was all they said it would be. I cannot have dairy and they accommodated that nicely. We all had dessert and they were unique but tasty.

Great Outdoor Dining
Enjoyed eating out in the Garden Cafe. Tables were far enough apart you could not hear any conversations going on around you. It was quiet and relaxing.

nice ending to perfect summer day
location right center of downtown Old Port yet bushes provide privacy from street, great place for outside dinner on a beautiful summer evening

One of my favorite restaurants!
If for no other reason then the atmosphere is beyond quaint and simply charming, you must go to this restaurant. It's not an overwhelming menu but everything I've ever had here has been very, very good! I love this place for lunch or dinner in the summer days on their patio restaurant location.

Beautiful Outdoor dining
Great spot for dinner on a nice night. Also have indoor dining in hotel. Menu was limited, but food offered was very tasty.

An amazing experience!
The outdoor dining area is just gorgeous, and the food is phenomenal! This is the place to eat in Portland.

Friday night out
Our waiter at 20 Milk street was both funny and accommodating. We had made reservations to have dinner inside at the restaurant but found they were only serving outside. The offered to serve us inside but instead we opted for an outside table. The food was excellent but rather pricey. All in all it was a pleasant experience.

Well worth a look before booking. I had the club sandwich with lobster, it was exquisite, though the steak fries were a bit cold. My friend had the sirloin salad and enjoyed it greatly. The desserts were truly stellar. The outside seating was lovely, but as can be expected, was loud with street noise occasionally. Overall, we enjoyed a nice long lunch... not a place to rush through a quick bite.

Romantic summer eve
It's a bit confusing, but Twenty Milk Street becomes an outdoor-only dining venue in the summer months, called by a different name. Once we were over the confusion, we settled into this beautiful dining spot on a cobblestone paved square in front of the historic Regency Hotel in the old part of downtown Portland. On a warm summer night, the ambiance is first class. Our waiter was delightful. And the food, while not up to the standard of Fore Street or other Portland foodie destinations, was very good. Overall, made for a delightful evening.

Worth the Try
What a nice place! GREAT service. Perfect atmosphere for conversation with a soothing pianist in the background. It is pricey, but really enjoyable. We loved our food choices. They allowed us time to relax...didn't feel rushed. Very clean and eclectic. Had a nice table right by the fire.

Excellent service and food. Quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Loved the upholstered ARM chairs.

This restaurant is one of my favorite downtown Portland experiences. Always exceptional. Free valet perking, especially in winter time and during busy summer tourist season, makes this an even better choice. Highly recommend.
