About Mill's Tavern
Taverns have had a constant important presence in American life since the late 1600's. Many of them, which were attached to inns, were opened as resting places for travelers needing a place to stop, relax and fortify themselves. Of course the local residents frequented the taverns too, purchasing drinks and meals as well as participating in lively conversations. Taverns were the focal point for neighbors to come together, exchange news, talk of politics, and share in the general feeling of conviviality. Taverns were firmly established as gathering places for the light hearted socializing, serious talk, and of course, a
hearty meal accompanied by a tasty libation or two.
In this American tradition, we at Mill’s Tavern welcome you with genuine enthusiasm. Our staff is warm, friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. So please come, relax, visit with friends and family. You will leave refreshed and nourished, body and soul.

Mill's Tavern Ratings and Reviews
One of the few remaining really pleasant, cushy, warm and kinda plush-quiet restaurants around. It's become so rare to be able to have a conversation at a normal pitch or hear oneself think in a restaurant, even a good one - this is wonderful. The food and wine are EXCELLENT, the service professional and discreet, and, while pricey, particularly when one looks at the supposed 'tavern' schtick, it's very good value for money - great place for a romantic tete-a-tete, a family event with older folks whose hearing might get shattered in more raucous places, a chilly fall/winter evening when one wants really satisfying/stick-to-the-ribs AND sophisticated food. All-around good place - can't recommend highly enough as, at least, a specialish-occasion sorta place!
We’ve been here several times and the food and experience are always excellent. We had a party of 6 and all of us had a fantastic evening. Ambiance is good- quiet but not took quiet, upscale yet comfortable. Amongst us we ordered a wide variety of foods, most of which was shared, and all of which was delicious. I can’t wait to go back.
Unfortunately a hefty price tag does not guarantee quality.
My wife and I had a Roast Beet Carpaccio which was excellent.
We also both had the filet mignon and it was perhaps the toughest filet I have ever had.
Service was ok.
Left disappointed and probably won't be back.
The hostess was cold, almost hostile. The waitress was also kind of hostile. "Aggressive" was the word used by one of the people at my table. She took our friend's food away before she was finished, then got defensive when we said she was still eating. Not a relaxing dining experience at all. Very unfortunate considering the high prices.
This is our go to spot when we need something great and don't want to have to think about where to go. The service and food are always excellent. Management and servers always remember us and welcome us back. If you haven't tried this place out recently...stop waiting and do yourself a favor.
Excellent in every regard. I think the sides are overpriced and the cheese &chacutieri plate was pretty sparse for the price. Meals were excellent and I am fine,with the pricing. Excellent cuts of meat, cooked to perfection. I always have the duck and have never been disappointed. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for fibe dining for a special occasion
Took the extended family and we were set up in one of their private rooms. Steaks and salmon were outstanding as were the side dishes and apps. Service was personal and professional. We had a party of ten, but it was easy as if it had been a party for two. Reasonable pricing given the high quality of the food. They have upped their game since my last visit, though I have always had good dinners and service at the Mills since it opened. Will go again without a doubt. Everyone was very pleased.
We go a few times per year and invited guests. We had 8:30 reservations and were seated after 8:30. The salad was very good but not generous to share. Get your own if you want more than two bites. The bread was ok.... a seasoned, softer dough. I asked for a more traditional crusty bread without seasoning and they did not have it. The entrees were delicious. I had the salmon while the others had veal chop, steak etc. all seemed satisfied. Not sure if they were understaffed this particular evening but the courses came out very slow. We never rush at dinner however we had 8 pm res and did not leave until 11:30. I think we were the last party left. Kind of unusual for Mill's. You won't be disappointed by the flavors .
My wife and I went to Mill's Tavern for her birthday. A little pricey but after tasting the food, it was well worth it . My wife had the Ginger Beer Braised Black Angus Short Ribs, and I ordered the House made Sun-dried Tomato Ravioli filled with Mushroom and Ricotta swimming in a Basil Spinach Pesto Cream Souse & Pecorino. The service, and the server was outstanding and she went out of her way to help us with dietary needs. I highly recommend the Mill's Tavern if your looking for a memorable dinning experience.
Even with the prix fixe menu I found the ratio of serving size to price a little expensive. The ingredients are good quality. Salads were average, main course good, dessert fantastic.
Nice wine list, good price point.
The dining room was beautiful (don't look up, the ceiling tiles look as if they'll fall in some spots). The bathroom was not dirty but not clean smelling and certainly not what you'd expect from a fine dining establishment.
The service was fabulous. Naomi was attentive but not cloying. we enjoyed our experience with her.
Overall a wonderful dinner. The only downside was one element of my Thai glazed duck breast dinner, the Confit Duck Rillett, came out cold. The waitress offered to warm it but I declined the offer and skipped that part. The bourbon braised chicken was amazing. The winner however was dessert. The creme brulee was one of the best preparations we've had, and the Portuguese sweet bread bread pudding is the best I've ever had. I've never had bread pudding so creamy and fall apart in your mouth. It almost had a custard like consistency. The pastry chef knocked those two dishes out of the park.
7:45 reservation but no table when we got there. Sent to the bar and proceeded to wait more than 10 minutes for the bartender (2 of them) to have time to come over. They were not overly busy but making drinks for the wait staff. Very nice once they got there but once they got there they provided a wine menu and we waited another five mins for him to get back to us. We finally say at about 820, and waited another ten minutes for waitress. I had to go flag down a waiter to get their attention. Once she got there she was exquisite. The food was dynamite, from the apps to the main course and about half way through we decided that despite the Service issues we would come back and soon.
This was our first time dining at Mill's, but we will absolutely be back! As soon as we walked through the door we felt welcome. The manager greated us with such a warm smile and enthusiastic attitude. The ambiance in the restaraunt was beautiful. Our waiter, Nick, knew the menu inside and out and was able to give us the perfect food and wine recommendations. The food was fantastic. The lobster cocktail, filet mignon and rack of lamb were cooked to perfection. The "affogato" for dessert was the perfect ending to our meal. We have already been spreading the word on how good our experience was and are looking forward to returning soon.
We have been to Mill's Tavern many times with great experience. However, the meal I had this past Thursday was well below par. I ordered the rack of lamb along with the lobster Mac 'n Cheese and asparagus. Not only was the lamb tasteless and dry, it was served at room temperature as was sides. When the waiter asked about our meals, I promptly pointed out how poorly prepared my and cold the meal was served. He took it back to the kitchen and five minutes later returned on a hot plate but with the meat still cold. REALLY!! Given their prices, shouldn't you expect meals served hot and fresh. The restaurant was very slow so you can't blame a harried kitchen. As with the rack of lamb, both the mac 'n cheese and asparagus where served at slightly warmer than room temperature. The waiter did comp us a round of champagne and a dessert.
There are way too many dining choices in the Providence area to have food served with the proper preparation. We will think again when Mill's Tavern is suggested.
First and foremost, our server, Nick, was EXEMPLARY. All the food was wonderful, but it is pricey, and you should be aware of that straight away. $14 for a side of asparagus seems quite ridiculous to me, and I'm not quite certain how I didn't spot that price prior to ordering. The mac n' cheese side was fabulous at $10. Tremendously overpriced, however, was the Lobster Tail appetizer at $29. Nothing to brag about and certainly not worth the money. Our entrees (Filet Mignon and Ribeye) were cooked to perfection and were very tasty. Dessert plates both read "Happy Anniversary" and were fantastic (Portuguese Bread Pudding and Japanese Cheesecake). All in all, it was a relaxing, romantic anniversary dinner....with a giant price tag.
