    I had a burger, and it was good, but nothing special or unique. The waiter was very rude to me when I asked a question about the menu, and very inpatient while taking the orders. We were in four, and we all felt the service was very poorly from the main person assisting our table. There were 2 different waiters who brought the food and drink, and they were excellent. But the main person set us off enough to never return.

    Miller Tavern on Bay has a lovely patio facing the intersection of Harbour street and Bay, making it quite noisy with all cars passing by. The place is a steakhouse and a pub and has a good selection of meats and seafood on the menu. We started with a plate of bread dubbed focaccia--it was closer to the buns with little semblance of the proper focaccia form, basted in butter and parmesan cheese. We also tried their salad with pear as an appetizer--it was delicious. Of many things on the menu, I went for a lamb shank. This shank was certainly slow-cooked to perfection as the meat slid off the bone to embrace the beans and chard it was served with. It was done quite well for my liking and paired nicely with the sides. I would only reduce the amount of salt on the piece; otherwise, it was delicious. I also ordered a few gin sodas, which were quite essential overall. Their chard was good. Aside from this, the service was notably slow to take the order and bring the food to the table. It is okay on a leisurely evening; however, it did almost cross the line of not acceptable. Finally, I do think that they are overpriced: the quality of food did not meet the price mark.

    Food was excellent. The burger was phenomenal. The major problem was we had a large group after probably committing to separate bills per couple decided it was too complicated and made us dissect one lengthy bill (although they were able to priced a separate bill for the group beside us. The manager indicated “that’s just what they do on event nights” which to me meant they were too lazy or incompetent. It was very disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber not to mention a complete waste of our time to calculating our own bill while being forced to provide 18% gratuity.

    We had a great dinner. We arrived at 4 and thought we were enjoying the “happy hour -6$ drinks and 1/2 price appetizers” as listed on the menu -But..when we got the bills it was a only on some apps, this was not how it was indicated on the menu. The server had not informed us on this but the restaurant did right and adjusted accordingly. So maybe a print change is needed. Otherwise the food was top notch and the service, atmosphere great and an enjoyable experience. I would recommend a stop to try it out.

    Miller Tavern is an odd place. While it calls itself a tavern, it has more of an upscale lunch club vibe, with an uncommon menu to match. Beyond that, though, it's pretty middle-of-the-road. Our party of five ordered the lamb shank, mushroom risotto, and lobster mac and cheese. All were good but not amazing. The service was friendly and attentive, and price was about what I'd expect for that menu. So, if you're looking for something in the area, and comfortable with the menu options (don't expect any traditional 'tavern' fare) then it's probably worth considering.

    Unfortunately, this is nothing more than (very) overpriced bar food. At our visit, they were out of several beers, and three menu items—sadly, the most appetizing sounding of the menu. They offered a substitution in lieu of lobster, however the price was not adjusted to reflect this and the substituted meat was diced shrimp equating to maximally three whole pieces… we were celebrating my partners birthday and he jokingly asked to make sure there was a “lobster amount of shrimp” in the pasta, as we are hungry—and for 36$?! Unacceptable and insulting to our money and time to have allowed this to pass through the kitchen. The food was bland, the mixed drinks missed the mark (watered down?), and the beer selection is frustratingly limited; waiter said “Molson owned”. The best part of the meal was the $11 side of fries. Save your wallet the hit; go somewhere else that isn’t deceptively resting upon its location and misleadingly haut cuisine menu.

    12 oz Sirloin Steak @ $65.00 very poor quality; coated with way too much with what tasted like pre-ground pepper straight from a can. Salad was mediocre. What a shame as it is right next door to where we live! Over priced & disappointing ..

    AWFUL! Usually try and give restaurants the benefit of the doubt, but at this price point providing feedback is important. Although the restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived we were sat at the last table next to the party room. There was a large group who arrived shortly after. It was so loud we couldn’t have a conversation at the table. The food was very disappointing even though very expensive. One meal was sent back but none were worth the price. Service was inattentive, but hard to blame the waiter who had to serve the large party. If you’re looking for steak there are much better choices available in downtown Toronto.
