Amazing service, he went above and beyond to help with our menu questions and to make us feel comfortable! Food was the best, my fav is the Wagyu tartare and the infamous apple pie!

Dinner was fantastic all the way through. From the cocktails, through the appetizers and the sharing size main. It was the perfect end to our anniversary evening.

Excellent service but food was only ok. Cabbage chips, Jungle Curry and Waygu Tartare were tasty but Calamari and Glazed Pork were disappointing. They also need to look at their choice of linen napkins as they left lint pills all over clothing.

We would like to thank Mitch and the entire team of Model Milk for accommodating us. The middle eastern salad was amazing, and felt like a blast of exotic flavors. The drinks were incredible. Above all the ambiance and passion could be witnessed amongst the team.

Went to Model Milk for a date night after many months of wanting to check this place out. We sat out on the patio space which was great, outside of the traffic, which I don’t hold against the restaurant.
I very much enjoyed the hot chicken with biscuits, pickles and salad. Just the right amount of heat, super flavourful biscuits, and the salad was delicious. Some sort of creamy dressing with radish and blue cheese on lettuce. Caught me off guard just how delicious it was.
My wife had the pork with roasted broccoli. She said it was absolutely fantastic, and the portion size was just about right, maybe a little large.
Although we were quite full we accepted the server’s recommendation of trying the apple pie, and were very happy we did. The cheese crust is genius, the ice cream not too sweet, and the apples perfectly baked.
Bottom line? We’ll be back. Oh, and they make a great Old Fashioned.

Loved the chicken with the buttermilk biscuits and wedged salad. The milk burger was very tasty. The apple cheddar crust pie with ice cream was delicious and so was the mango, coconut cream, lime sorbet.

What a terrible anniversary location. We ordered three dishes and settled in only for all three to arrive almost at once, before we had finished the first. The server was rude and refused to stagger or even reheat the dishes, meaning we enjoyed ice cold pasta.

Love Model Milk but it has slipped badly.
