I used to really love Miller Tavern, however, I find that the selection has decreased. Additionally, both this time and last time that I visited, I got a bad migraine the day after my visit, despite ordering two different meals. I am not sure if Miller uses MSG in their food, or if the quality has decreased, but unfortunately I don't intend to return.

Thank for taking the time to comment and rate us on Open Table. We appreciate all feedback from our guests, goor or bad, as we are always looking for ways to improve. I can confirm the Miller does not use MSG in the kitchen anywhere. We try to change up the menus seasonally - while also keeping enough of a selection for all appetites. We thank you for your patronage and we sincerely hope you will reconsider and give us another try.

Another great meal at Millers. We started with the cheese board. Excellent variety of cheeses. Our mains were cooked to perfection (steak and prime rib) I am not sure how I managed but I couldn't resist the amazing sticky toffee pudding. Great, relaxing meal.

I was there on a business meeting. The food was delicious. But there was music overhead that was way too loud. And I did not feel comfortable asking the waitress to turn it down.

Very nice lunch with a former colleague from work not seen for several years since our retirement. Food, service and atmosphere were all tops and nostalgic, given that Miller used to be the “go to” place for our former management team reunions.

My husband enjoyed his steak.
I ordered, probably the only thing on the menu I haven’t had. The Cod, it wasn’t what I expected! It lists on the menu
Grilled Cod, it was grilled however, skin side up it didn’t look very appetizing.
Bok Choy, that was good.
Rice, hard to reck
Shrimp, I expected to find them?
Served with curry sauce, it should have been described as
Curry soup with a bit of tiny shrimp.
It doesn’t look appetizing other then the bok choy peeking out from under the rice & fish skin, not even crispy. It would have look better.
It wasn’t in expensive, I seriously expect better.
The service is always great, but I would love to see some changes on the menu.

I wrote a review last time, did not get a response.
this time, the upstairs was closed and we were required to sit in the bar area or leave. We were not advised of this ahead of time.
We chose to stay.
There was one waitress for the entire area - slow service, too many customers for one server. I felt bad for the one girl working.
Not acceptable!

Thank you for taking the time to rate and comment on Open Table about your visit. We appreciate all feedback from our guests - good or bad. Wine mark ups in the city can certainly vary, I can assure you ours is very much on the low end of that scale. We do our best to create a wine list with great selection, but most of all, great value. We are known for our Seafood, so I apologize that your meal wasn't up to our high standards. We hope you will consider giving us another try. Cheers.

It’s always a nice experience. Mostly the staff is wonderful
I feel I need to mention the menu, it’s limited. I’m mostly vegetarian but eat fish. My family is a mix some are strictly vegetarian. There are not enough vegetarian dishes.
I think the steak specials are great! My husband always orders from that menu. As we go out every week, we of course prefer a special. Because of my restrictions, there’s never a special price. I also have no problem with smaller servings.
As for the decor, I understand changes will be coming. It’s not expensive to have nice accessories. The birch logs were beautiful, simply but lovely. Orchids last for a very long time & not that expensive or a one time investment in good artificial ones, not a bad idea.
We look forward to sitting in the garden!
Very loyal patrons.

Cheery attentive service which remained very hospitable when we decided to stay and visit long after our meal was over. Our favourite dish - the amazing seafood salad plate didn’t disappoint. Fresh smoked salmon, shrimp, rare Tuna and a signature crab cake: absolutely delicious. For all these reasons it’s our regular lunch place. The only thing we could have wished for was a booth upstairs, out of the sports bar atmosphere, but alas still not open for lunch.

The Miller Tavern was a cozy choice for lunch on a cold February day. The dinning room is very warm and welcoming with lots of wood. I could do without the visual distraction of all the TV screens. We were dining with a friend with mobility issues and the staff where great about placing in a table rather than a booth. The service was friendly and efficient. When we arrived, we did sit for awhile before the server came to take drink orders. From then on the service went very smoothly. Three of five of us ordered the classic steak with peppercorn sauce which was done very well. Both the sweet potato and regular fries were fantastic.

We apologize you didn't enjoy the atmosphere in the lounge with the TV's -perhaps on your next visit we can situate you where they will be less of a distraction or for guests that can do the stairs, we can accommodate in the dining room (no TVs) Cheers!
