Ww always enjoy the food at Mildred's. We go early before it gets full and it never fails we have to sit right next to someone else. This visit when we arrived there were maybe 6 other people dining. We were sat at a table a couple over from everyone else, plenty of room. (it is one big room with tables practically on top of each other) Then 5 minutes into our drinks a party of 4 (2 rather large men) were sat at the table right next to us. They could have eaten off of our table. It ended up being fine, but we could hear their entire conversation and several requests for the wait staff to bring the food because they were in a hurry. Good food and service, but if you're looking for privacy-not here.

Chef/Owner Bert Gill & staff is always right on with their menu selections and local farm fresh picks. Lots of care goes into the fish & poultry and meats. Results show when dinner arrives at table

Restaurant is hidden in a small strip mall. It is very good. We all enjoyed the appetizers esp. the squash! The lamb was so tender it fell off the bone. It was outstanding. We also had salmon, Cornish hen and steak and it also was very good. the only thing we didn't care for was the salads the salad dressing had a bitter taste. But everything else was great including the strawberry short cake and the tagalong cheesecake. If u don't want a rich dessert stick to the shortcake. It is pricey, so I would go there for a special occasion.

Mildred's is Gainesville's Treasure
Great restaurant for lunch and really special for dinner, it's 2 restaurants in 1 location. Chef is meticulous with selections we always enjoy. Been going there for 20 years and will continue to.

Fine dining in Gainesville
This was our fifth time going to Mildred's Big City Food. The food is consistently delicious, it's actual great food in Gainesville. The waitress took about 15 minutes to come take our drink orders but she apologized and it all went smoothly after that. The food is just so good and tastes so light and flavorful. This might be the best restaurant in town, worth every penny.

Mildred's is located in an unimpressive back corner of a strip mall. The decor inside is plain. The service and food, however, were outstanding! The staff was attentive, friendly and knowledgable. The food selection was impressive for a little restaurant, with its menu changing daily based on ingredients that are available locally, in season etc. There was a mix of classics such as crab cakes, Cornish hen and New York Strip... but prepared with a fine touch. Other items were unique and delishious, such as the snails with fresh, homemade linguini. The selection of fish was broad, such as cobia, pompano, Idaho brook trout and wild salmon. The salads were well received, particularly the white bean salad with smoked sausage.

We went there for lunch on 9/22. Arrived just before things started getting busy. We had an excellent waiter who offered good suggestions and was very pleasant. The meals and coffee were excellent. Enjoyed our meal very much.
