New menu. Not impressed. Very generic. Meat and potatoes! Used to have a few interesting/variety of dishes. Now just run of the mill.

I'm giving The Miller (Yonge St) a low rating mostly because of the value for food & drinks. As usual, after the meal, you feel you've paid WAY too much for the quality received. I ordered the Ahi Tuna Tartar that's on the new menu, along with a side salad. The OLD MENU AHI TUNA was MUCH BETTER! The new Ahi just comes in a bowl with 2 salted crackers that don't go well with the tuna. I'm missing the old chips and wasabi paste, etc. for the old menu. PLEASE bring it back. I'm also missing the old menu Buddha Bowl AND SWEET POTATO FRIES! The atmosphere and service is excellent, but the price of menu items is greatly inflated. The new menu also has the smallest writing - needs to be much larger with a better font. When they re-print the menu, lower the prices & bring back the old Ahi Tuna, Buddha Bowl and Sweet Potato Fries, I'll be more likely to go back.

The service was excellent. The food took over an hour to come to our table but it was lunch on December 11th, so it was extremely busy.

A pleasant surprise! Service was attentive but not overbearing. Food was very good with discounted prices on some appetizers during happy hour, and mains were generous portions. We sat in a large booth, perfect for our group of friends. Noise level was tolerable for most of the evening, which we all appreciated. Great value.

Fish and chips had too much batter and oil
Cesar salad - fresh but without taste
Lamb shank was not tasty - just flat
Veg soup was good and had a smoky taste to it- not sure if it was the bacon

server did a great job. No complaints, only issue, the reservation app claimed we did not show up on time. Meanwhile we did! Please make sure the software works properly. We were there right at 7 PM as per our reservation.

The area we sat in was cold. The place was not full but service was slow. New menu items are different than previous; however, nothing special and overpriced.

I gave 1 star because I couldn’t do 0!!! WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! from our rude server to dry dishes and having the manager come to our table to yell at us ! It was just so horrible. Don’t waste your time and money if you’re looking for a fun night with quality food. This place used to be good at one point not anymore ! Too bad !

The menu recently changed and is not as diversified as before. It was ok but not very inspired. Waiter had an attitude and was not attentive. Men's washroom was freezing cold and so was the water to wash your hands. The restaurant was reasonably full so perhaps it was just our bad luck.

I had made a reservation for 8 people for a surprise birthday party I organized for my boyfriend. The waitress took our drink orders and then dinner. First everyone except my boyfriend got their food. My boyfriends meal finally came and the mash potatoes were stone cold, as was the steak. Another persons food also arrived cold. I sent his plate back and we all had to start eating while he sat with an empty plate. Service afterward was spotty. I felt like I had to keep looking for a server. I ordered a bottle of wine that was out of stock and requested another.
I am not one to look for a “free meal” but there was no compensation offered for the cold food, meal delay, and wine being unavailable. We paid in full for the meal, spare a complimentary glass of Prosecco that was offered to us.
So much potential, just needs a bit more care and attention to detail. Make your customers feel like you care! Especially when they are there to celebrate a special event.

I went for brunch and had the brioche French toast with a side of bacon. It was delicious. The bacon was perfectly cooked and the portion sizes were good.

I don't think I've ever had a bad experience at Miller. Food is always delicious, service is great, atmos is the best part, especially suring summer with all the storm doors open, amazing.

The old menu was superior and we love the ambience . We come at least twice a month but if they keep that new menus and change decor we will change to The Keg. Keg has better value and better choices than your new menu and we almost left due to that

As always, outstanding. We just wish that lived much closer so we can enjoy a nice steak more often.
Thank you for another great dining experience.

Miller Tavern is my go to choice for getting together with friends. Imagine our disappointment with the changes following the recent kitchen reservation. Favourite dishes - seafood salad plate - gone! In its place an expensive and less appealing seafood platter. Lots of pricey steaks that don’t attract us. We settled for the (now single) crab cake. Even more disappointing is the change to the wine list. Not one big red by the glass worth drinking. We considered a bottle - which we couldn’t finish. Few familiar wine choices from LCBO, instead a selection of private list wines with big mark-ups, worst of all most don’t rate over 3-stars. DARN! I’m hoping they address some of these irritating changes.

Food was delicious but the service needs attention. Our server, though polite, was not very enthusiastic, nor "happy" to be serving us. Missed on a number of things.... service of the meals...crossing over in front of myself to serve another guest, no salt/pepper/etc was brought over. We got up & got our own. We had brunch there. Did not ask if we wanted a coffee, dessert after our meal. Brough my coffee, with spilt beverage on the saucer with not apology, clean up.. No spoon with my service, no sugar, which I had to ask for. And again brought the bill & reached over across me to give it to the person paying.
We sat in the indoor"patio" extension upstairs which was very airy & bright.
Still might try it again.

Disappointed with menu (apparently they are making changes) and ordered portobello burger .... which was a beef burger with some mushroom I guess in it ..... I didn’t eat it (my mistake for not checking but portobello is normally served in place of meat and it actually didn’t say beef in the outline) and ordered a very average salad instead which took a long time to arrive . My dinner companion also got a hair on the plate but given the issues I had didn’t even mention it . I will not be returning

Good experience overall. Excellent Wait Person. A bit load, but nice room etc. The only letdown was less than an interesting menu. On the other hand, the food was tasty and well-prepared.

I have been to Miller tavern before but this is first time I was back in a long time and service has gone down. Although we were a large group, they took far to long to serve us. Very disappointed.

Tried and true local spot - quality food, good service and nice atmosphere - BUT - needs a re-fresh - looking tired and worn inside/tables/furnishings. Like a dependable friend you know what to expect - just needs a new wardrobe ;) or a fresh lick of paint

Only the kitchen was renovated and the menu is shortened. Miss the Prime Rib (served only on Sat/Sun). Service is good but the decor needs some change for sure. Looks like a glorified pub (downstairs) without the TV screens upstairs.

Food, service and staff all excellent but the noise level wasn’t energetic it was just way too loud and made
Talking extremely difficult. We were sitting downstairs where the ceilings are low so that didn’t help the situation.

Very poor service. The cappuccino and lattes were undrinkable and though we were not charged for them no offer or apology was offered. It was very noisy in our area. Overall I would not return readily.
