The food was decent, nothing to write home about. Service was really lacking. Our waitress seemed to forget about us for a good 15 minutes during the meal. I understand she was knew ( which she informed us of about 3-4 different times ), but you should also know what soft drinks you guys have. As well as some food recommendations. Overall, the trip was okay. Probably won't return unless part of a group that is going.

Food was average at best. Ambiance was non existent - we asked to be moved to a livelier part of the restaurant but we were told we couldn't. Waiter started out fine but kept disappearing. We had to go looking for him on more than one occasion. I will not return.

Ordered Pinot Grigio, got Chardonnay. Ordered cauliflower soup, got mushroom. Mahi mahi overcooked.

However- waiter was friendly and apologetic and they tried to make it right by us. And I can say that the free piece of caramel cheesecake was absolutely delicious and I would go back just for that. But I would not order wine!

I took my two twenty something sons to dinner to celebrate a birthday. We were all pleasantly surprised by the good food and great service. I live in the neighbourhood so I will definitely be a repeat customer.

Not impressed with sitting for a while before being acknowledged. For the price of a steak dinner you would think at least the baked potato would be bigger and you would get some veggies instead of a small handful arugula with nothing else. The steak was tasty but overall the presentation of the whole meal was lacking. Won't go back or recommend.
The Bar was busy. Perhaps it's only a place to get a drink.

The food was just okay. Was expecting much better for a $50 steak. Not near the same quality as a steak from The Keg. Also, they need to present their food better as it did not look all that apetizing.

We did the miller tavern because it was near our venue. Although the wait staff and hostess were great and friendly the food was very disappointing. It was very bland and tasteless. I will probably not go again.

Had a wonderful time! Great food, great service. We were really happy to have our dinner date there before The RedChili Peppers Concert. A lot of people in the restaurant were wearing Chili Peppers t-shirts so the staff changed the music to the RHCP. It was so great that they did that, really set the mood for the night !

the 'fall off the rack' ribs is an accurate statement, but there was no significant meat to actually fall off the rack. a definite miss and it makes me question the value considering what I paid.

Received a gift certificate over the holidays and came here. Our server was very nice and efficient. But the food was subpar at best. The Caesar salad was limp and over dressed, fried calamari looked like it was from frozen and out of a box, the steak was tasteless and boring, and the cheesecake was worse than something you'd buy as individual cut slices at the grocery store. All this came to over $130 for two with just a glass of house red wine. Save your money.

We go to the Miller a few times a year, typically before Raptor games. Since they readjusted their menu with more affordable choices, we have started to attend more frequently. Food is always good and sometimes great. We have been served by Kenny and Rebecca and both are superior. We will return.

Very different vibe from North York location. We used to go there on a cold night and sit by the fire for appetizers and drinks. This location is very noisy and not as cozy. But all in all good was good and service as well. Just wouldn't go for an occasion. Good for a bunch of friends on gAme night.

The Miller is an excellent option if you are ok with spending a little more. There is great food variety, the ambiance is comfortable and it's not too loud even when it's full.

My first time at the Miller Tavern downtown location and I was not disappointed. The service was good and the food was excellent. I booked this restaurant because of it's close proximity to the Air Canada Centre for a Raptor's basketball game. It was perfect as we were able to enjoy a nice dinner and the walk across the street to the ACC for the Raptor's game. An added bonus is that parking is only $15 in the under ground garage right behind Miller's Tavern Downtown.

Decent spot for drinks and a bite before the Jays game - walk to Rogers centre. Service is a little spastic - sometimes good, sometimes not good, never great. Food is what you'd expect. Think upscale bar food, small tables jammed with too many diners, with solid design and average ambience.
