    Went for an early dinner before a play. Our server Deana (sp?) was a great resource . She answered our questions about small plates and was totally helpful as we ordered several times. Food was full of flavor and it was fun to try several things. It was my birthday and they even surprised me with a brownie before we left.

    Made reservations for my best friend's birthday, we sat in the courtyard which was nice and quiet. It was a Sunday evening and they weren't busy, however, the service was very slow. Although the taste and presentation of the food were alright, nothing special, the portion sizes were very small. We had to keep placing orders because it just wasn't enough and the waitress wasn't the most helpful in guiding us towards better options. Even the entree plates were very small. There were 3 of us and the bill was very high for what we received, and we all still left hungry. We were all looking forward to the dinner, somewhat disappointing.

    We went to Milk & Honey before going to see a play. We told our server that we needed to make a show, and she promptly disappeared. Our drinks were fabulous, but the food left something to be desired. The chicken entree (which you would think would be a larger portion) was laughably small. And certainly not worth the price! I'd go back here for leisurely drinks, but probably not for a meal. Not worth the price!

    Though the food was delicious and the service initially started off great, we eventually felt completely forgotten about as the only inside table that evening. Our water refills became few and far in between, and an hour went by before we were able to put in our entree order after having waiting over 30 minutes for our appetizers. Our overall all dinner took 3 hours for only 2 people, and it would've only had to take 2 if the service had been more diligent.

    We had 11:30 reservations and there were only two other parties in the place. we didn't get out of there until 1:00. The solo waitress disappeared for over 10 minutes right after she said she'd be right back to take our order. There were other parties that arrived after us and were served before us. We thought they forgot about us again. There were four in our party and only three plates arrived together. The other three of us were almost done eating when the fourth plate arrived. The flavors were good, although the ravioli portion was very small and the beef on weck and nicoise salad portion was very large. No consistency. Very disappointing considering it was a Tuesday lunch with not very many people there. Unless they can improve on service, this place is not going to last long.

    Rich dark textures in the decor. I was there for brunch, and everything was good but the antebellum grits were out of this world. They were earthy and hearty, with loads of texture. So amazing. Friendly, low key service was very appreciated.

    We were so disappointed with our experience at Milk and Honey, because we have read several good reviews which prompted us to try it out. The audio system was down, and there seemed to be a baseball game playing on the radio in the kitchen. Our waiter recommended a dish that enticed us, but we were not able to get it because it was not available (we were first people in the restaurant that morning for brunch). Two people in out party ordered the Lox, and when it arrived, it was without the caviar, which was a huge selling point sold to us by our waiter. We were not told there was not caviar, but instead, after we brought it to our waiter's attention, he reported back that the chef felt the caviar was not fresh enough, so he left it off. We were then offered something else to put on the Lox sandwich. Overall, it was an expensive experience and not a fun brunch experience. The food was mediocre. Sadly, we will not return.

    Got there early (due to theatre time) and as a result, service initially was very good unlike many posted negatives here and on T.A. However, as more covers came, I could easily see that those negatives were valid. Nice atmosphere but that applies to lots of places, the entire block for instance. Food was good, not a good value-for-money however (I hate paying a lot and leaving hungry). Several items on the new menu were unavailable with nothing replacing them. Limited choices to begin with, made worse including an entree one of us would have ordered. Wine glass had strange odor, needed to be replaced. I do, however, value the sustainable, healthy local food choices and that's why I'd recommend it, but only slightly. As to us, going back? Don't see why.

    Not happy that the brunch menu did not match the one on their web site and prices for items that did match were different. Hash brisket meat was tough, poached eggs done very well, bacon excellent, bloody mary sub-par. Nice basement atmosphere with wall of windows to outside.

    The peppers and bone marrow were tasty. The white gazpacho recommended by the server was fantastic. But the scallops and pork belly were overcooked and tasteless.

    I've been here for dinner and it was fantastic so we decided to try brunch. It may have just been an off day but it wasn't an enjoyable experience. The service took forever even though it seemed the restaurant was fairly empty. Many items ordered were forgotten. Food was nothing special and multiple people ordered the biscuits and gravy and weren't happy. The biscuits were hard and there was very little "gravy".

    I would not recommend this restaurant. The waiter had an attitude with us and it kind of ruined our Easter Brunch. He was annoyed for some reason. It took us 25 minutes to get our drinks, then another 30 to get our food. It wasn't even that busy, but the service was just the worst.

    The owner and chef were amazing. The food was delicious. The calamari was the best I have ever had and the bone marrow and filet melted in your mouth. Now don't forget the dessert. It was s salted Carmel something or other that was amazing. Thank you for making our bumpy night extremely memorable. Oh one more thing the wine they recommended was awesome Grenache and Syrah.

    This is the second time we've dined at milk and honey where it took over 30 minutes to get our first drink. Excuse both times was that they're "busy" but half the restaurant was empty. We had a reservation but once seated, we were questioned if we really did have a reservation.

    The restaurant is beautiful and servers are friendly. I ordered a Lavender Lemonade and they were out for the second time in a row. When it came to ordering my meal, I ordered Salmon and they were out of that too. I've never been to a restaurant who was out of fish. I ordered the chicken instead and was not impressed by the bland flavors and it was very dry. The appetizers were good though. Definitely not a place for good quality food but more of a place to have a drink and appetizer before going to catch a show or something.

    The food was wonderful but the service was poor. We ordered appetizers and entrees and all the food showed up at one time. Plus, we felt we had to guard our food from being cleared too quickly. There was no one waiting for a table (in fact the vast majority of the table were open) but we felt that we were being rushed out.

    Food quality was not as good as I thought it would be. I ordered the prime burger and asked for it to be medium-rare. It came out well done. My friend ordered the pork sandwich. It was more pleasing to the eye, but was missing something acidic (just a lot of meat and cheese).

    There were four of us in our party. Two of the entrees were very good. However, one of the other entrees was undercooked and one was cold. They seemed to be out of everything - three different bottles of wine that we tried to order, decaf coffee and one of the main desserts on the menu. But the waitress did not seem to know that they were out of all these things. She was constantly coming back after taking an order to let us know that they were out of it. Service was average. At this point we would not return based on what we experienced.

    Went early on a Saturday night for dinner with some work acquaintances. Just ordered a bunch of small plates out the menu as a tapas type of meal. Food in general very good. Some dishes excellent (gnocchi, Brussels sprouts). Service was also very good. Would recommend going back there again.

    Excellent food..would hightly recommend. A little hard to find since signage on Larimer street is limited but well worth the find. Go into the court yard then look for a set of step off to the right that will lead you down to the Milk & Honey Bar Kitchen.
