When we arrived we were told that speciality drinks and wine was half price until 6.
When the bill came the bill had the same statement on the bottom but we were informed after we challenged the waitress that the bill did not reflect the special. She said that non applicable on Saturday just started.
Either there should have been a sign on the table or frankly you should have honored what the bill and the waitress told us. Disappointed!

Awesome food and service as always. Two of my friends and I had brunch on Saturday. Adam was fun, attentive and knew the menu. We will be back! And we'll ask for Adam.

This is a wonderful selection for a great lunch or dinner. The menu is varied, and offers great vegetarian options. The food is excellent, and service is exceptional. Would never hesitate to dine at Mill Valley Kitchen for lunch, brunch or dinner. The menu always has some changes, and seem to try to offer seasonal options. There is nothing bad to say here .. great food, great service, great restaurant!

We chose to celebrate my mom’s Birthday here. Our food was cold, our waitress left us with empty water glasses and no refills for long periods of time, and more importantly, I put a note on the reservation we were celebrating a Birthday AND mentioned it to our sever, yet there was absolutely no acknowledgement for her Birthday on the restaurants end. I was shocked! We ordered dessert, and no candle and we paid full price for it! Not a stellar place to celebrate a Birthday, nothing special.

We were looking for a place to have dinner with friends we had not seen in many years. It was their first visit to the Minneapolis area. Mill Valley Kitchen was a perfect choice — good, healthful food, prepared and presented beautifully.
If I had one criticism, it is the same one I have of every restaurant: too noisy. Having a conversation is a part of the dining experience.

The food was not only excellent, but interesting! It seems hard to find interesting food these days. So many restaurants have the same cookie cutter menu. Mill Valley Kitchen has a good variety for a variety of different tastes. It was hard to decide because there were several things I wanted to try. The portions are reasonably sized versus being so over the top huge and I love the little deserts. The wine and beer list is good and I love the pear martini! I would highly recommend Mill Valley Kitchen!

We had not been for dinner in a couple of years. We came in early during Happy Hour. Very reasonably priced beverages were served, half price glass of very nice wine. My wife found her entree on the happy hour list. I had a nicely prepared steak that was of moderate proportion, fine with me, but well prepared.
