Mille Fleurs is the most competent restaurant in San Diego County. The service is top-notch without being cloying. Food is reliably very good, very carefully prepared, well composed and well presented. It's somewhat expensive, but paying a little less for mediocre food is a worse deal.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. It was a quiet night midweek which was perfect for an intimate meal. The restaurant is cozy so even though it was fairly empty, it didn’t feel like it because the dining areas are somewhat separated. I also thought the portions quite generous for French fine dining, which was welcome given the price. We will definitely be back!

Brought my inlaws in after raving about the restaurant for years. They just moved to Rancho Sante Fe and i wanted them to know great local places to go out to. The food was outstanding firstly as it was my first time dining here with the new chef. The issue we had was the terribly long time it took for our waiter to take our orders and then a very long lag time on our food arriving at our table. Inlaws complained to me of course about how the service was lagging. What can i say. Doubt they will return but I will gladly give it another try and hoping it was an off night.

The new young chef seems to be still finding his way. It is still a French restaurant in atmosphere and service but now with an American large portion menu. The identity of the restaurant therefore is confused.
There are lots of fine American food restaurants around but that was not what Mille Fleurs was about.
So far something has been lost.

Food was mediocre (went for restaurant week had the tomato soup, sent it back because it tasted like marinara sauce, duck tasted like turkey not duck, friend said the whitefish was bland, luckily deserts were great). Service was pretty good, a couple of long waits and kept serving me from the wrong side which, for a French restaurant, is bad. Definitely was not worth the price. Ambience was fine but the lighting wasn't great especially for my outfit. Would not recommend.

Dined at Mille Fleurs with close family and friends gathered to celebrate a family wedding. Driving up to Rancho Santa Fe is always a treat and to arrive at a restaurant so beautiful, was the icing on the cake. The food was outstanding and its presentation was sensational. I would recommend Mille Fleur to anyone looking for a dining experience they'll never forget.

We redeemed an OpenTable gift certificate for this, thinking it was going to be like a Michelin star restaurant experience (except without the stars). We did the 5 course tasting option for $90 per person. Simply put, the food was not up to our expectations. It was mediocre for someone who has been to similarly priced high end French restaurants before. If this was your first multi-course high end experience, then it would be considered good, but not for the price. The ambiance was very nice, the wait staff did an excellent job, and the wine list was great. We wanted to love it, but were super disappointed by the food. Not very flavorful at all, even when compared to tasting experiences for half the price elsewhere in San Diego. There's just something missing for the price, location, and ambiance.
