There are not too many times you go out to dinner and everything goes pretty perfect! Well, this particular dinner at Mille Fleurs was wonderful! From the moment we arrived we were greeted promptly and brought to the exact table requested. Amazing! The service was great from the start with wonderful recommendations for wine, food and in general. Everyone on staff was very attentive. The food went beyond our expectations and seriously not one complaint at all. We actually questioned why we do not dine here more often than we do? LOL! Mille Fleurs is the place for that special occasion, a business meal or just plain wish to have a great meal, good service and ambiance. You cannot lose!

As with every visit the food was outstanding, ambience of the dining area was quiet so you could have a good conversation without trying to talk over the noise, as in far too many restaurants. Wine selection is fantastic. Service was not up to the very high standards of previous visits. Was surprised that dishes were left on the table a lot longer then one would expect after we had finished with them. Regardless, all of the staff was very pleasant and helpful. We always enjoy coming to Mille Fleurs.

Nice patio setting turned awful since they allow cigar smokers, in this case 8 of them to smoke! Very slow service and just ok food. This place is past it's prime. Other French restaurants are more authentic and better quality.

Mille Fleur never disappoints. The lobster salad was fresh and sweet. The duck breast cooked to perfection was
delicious and the Sole Munier was divine.
The pastry chefs creations were fabulous as well.
And the chef came out to speak with us a few times more ch to our delight.
Thank being said - visually the rooms need more color. The Guy Buffet pictures on a few of the walls were great and of course provide a bit of humor. But the rooms just seem bare.
I felt that the outdoor patio could really use a profusion of colorful flowers to make the area more gay and magic.
We will of course be back. The food is glorious and the service always attentive.
It’s comforting to know that Mille Fleur is still here serving
scrumptious French food.

Mille Fleurs is one of The Most Elegant restaurants in San Diego County. Everything--the service, the decor, the offerings and the prices! are on a par with that: Excellence. A rare treat in these days of ubiquitous menus and service.

Consistently high quality food. The service is excellent in that French melodramatic sort of way. Bruno is a trip - he’s worth the price of admission. A fun place to enjoy an evening out.

It's not what it used to be.For a restaurant of this caliber, the food is just average, service is ok and for the quality of the food, I think is overpriced.

We were celebrating a birthday with friends from out of town. This was my second visit and, as I was not very impressed with the service on my first visit I wasn't too thrilled about the choice. I am happy to say that this was a totally different experience and I will definitely return.

Mille Fleurs deserves more than 5 Stars. It's simply amazing that a resaurant that has been open for 27 years can be so good time after time. The longevity and excellence of the chef, Martin Woesle, who has been in charge since the opening, and the very professional service staff, especially Marco and Bruno, are also remarkable. Bertrand Hug deserves the reputation he has as San Diego's greatest restrauteur. He is obviously also a wonderful employer who has earned the loyalty of his employees.

Went to Mille Fleur a couple of times a long time ago when we lived close by. Old friends came down and remembered a good meal we had there together. We went together for a 7pm reservation. Still seemed like the same place, very elegant and proper.
Three of us ordered the halibut. After about 5-10 minutes, waitress came back and said they were out of halibut!!! At 7 PM! Wine list is out of this world pricey, highest I have ever seen for a bottle of wine. Service was excellent, but they really need to get their act together on the menu if they want to charge those prices.

I went to this restaurant about 15 years ago and had an incredible experience. Thats why I was so happy to see that it had maintained its reputation as one of the best restaurants in North County. Unfortunately that was not our experience, as the entire meal was uninspired.

Our waiter was fair, the food was not well described on the menu, and the entrees were just average. The salad dressing and the couscous was completely tasteless, as were the potatoes. The John Dory was bland, while the lamb was at least reasonable.

Perhaps we got them on a bad night, but there are many better restaurants in North county at this time. Hopefully they will reassess their operation and either improve or make significant changes.
