2 salads, 2 coffee and 1 gingerale, over $70. Cannot hold business lunches here going forward as prices are too high

We were at Miller's for brunch yesterday. We were disappointed that the upstairs was closed as we feel it is a nicer place to sit. We found the downstairs very dark. My order was described as yogurt with granola, preserved fruit and maple syrup. I requested no maple syrup and they forgot which made the dish too sweet. When I asked the waitress where the fruit was, she told me the kitchen put prunes in it. There were only 3 prunes and were tasteless - not a good choice for this dish (berries would be a much better choice) The whole thing came across as overly sweet vanilla yogurt with some crunchy oatmeal on top. The rest of our party felt their meals were acceptable but nothing they couldn't have ordered elsewhere for less money. All in all not a great experience and we will not be coming back.

We were a party of 6 celebrating the birthdays of my adult daughter and son. The service was good and the server appropriately attentive. Menu choices have been peered down and at first glance you want to check for more options. Yet everyone was quickly able to find something on the menu and enjoyed their choices. The calamari and crab cake appetizers were good, as were the cocktails ordered. The Cornish Hen, fish & chips and burger mains were tasty.
The only real down-side was that we were seated downstairs which we all found to be very draughty and chilly.

The best mussel I have had in a long time. Just like the ones in La Boqueria , Barcelona. Plump and juicy - cooked just right.

The medium-well steak was overdone unfortunately, though everything else was very tasty

My steak arrived well done even though I asked for the steak medium rare. The mistake was acknowledged and I eventually received a steak medium rare. However, not a great way to celebrate my 50th birthday.

Secondly, Aris and I are regulars at the Miller. However, we are tremendously disappointed that the cheese plate was removed from the menu. It was the main reason (along with the extensive wine list) we would go to The Miller. Without the cheese plate option, we will be going to The Miller less frequently. Just wanted to register our disappointment. I understand new owners-smaller menu but you have lost some ‘regulars’ in the process.

Lastly, Monica is our favourite server. She is very knowledgeable about the menu (and the cheese!) and if we do make reservations again, it’s will be because of Monica.
Sincerely,
Keri Rickwood-Zakinthinos

I’ve never been disappointed with meeting friends at Miller Tavern. Conveniently located (near both the 401 for guests from away, & near the TTC Yonge subway line) it is one of my favourite places to meet. The food selection is superb, whether for weekend brunch or dinners, as is the beverage menu. Highly recommended!

Wonderful ambiance and good service but the food was disappointing. Plates filled with potatoes, poor presentation. Not the usual quality we knew under previous ownership

Good neighbourhood location. 2 of us had the burger and were very disappointed, the other one had the Cornish hen and enjoyed it.
Service and staff were very friendly and efficient

It was good, it seemed every draft beer we were interested in ordering you were out of. Overall it was a good experience. We visit this restaurant and patio quite often.

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.
