The food is truly exceptional, the highest quality and excellently seasoned in every dish.
With the Covid shut downs, the service has suffered, not in delays but in delivery. Plates put on the table without regard to a person's order, not even confirming the accuracy. Appetizer arriving after the first course. Wait staff appeared inexperienced and indifferent. Waiter's used to be in command of the servidce. Inside seating is spaced for social distance but our advice is to reject seating near the bar in both directions. If you don't care about foul language and loud conversations several tables away you might relent to seating near the barroom. Obviously, the restaurant atmosphere has also suffered significantly with the pandemic. Will this restaurant recover service and atmosphere? Or will it lose its chefs?

A delicious respite! Mille Fleurs' cuisine is prepared and served by people who dearly love food. It's a lovely sanctuary and we felt as if we were on vacation in Paris. They have a beautiful patio with so many heat lamps you could sit outside in 50 degree temperature without a coat. If I could give it 6 stars I would!

I’ve been to Mille Fleurs many times and had a decent dinner there however this time was different. Overall the food was not that good and three in our party ordered the beef Bourguignon. Now mind you this is a French restaurant. They served with pasta which had absolutely no flavor and it literally looked like 2 tablespoons of beef bourguignon was put on the plate maybe two pieces of meat. We complained and they brought out a cereal bowl full of additional stew and proceeded to ladle two more tablespoons onto the plate it was completely ridiculous. I don’t know what they’ve done but I will never go there and eat again. We even brought our own wine and the bill was almost $500 and I’m so disappointed!!!!

So the service was particularly SLOW. Got our appetizers in a timely fashion, but waited over 50 minutes after to get our entrees. Was told it was because of several large parties, but we only saw one party.
Also, while food taste was excellent, the portion size was quite small, especially given how much we paid for each entree.
Have had better service at this restaurant before; could have just been an "off" night.

I’m sorry but the food was very bland, lacking in salt and flavor. I had escargot, deviled eggs and short rib tagliatelle, neither of which I enjoyed.

The one drink I had I did enjoy, it was the French Kiss.

Service was good.

Would return for a drink, and dinner if I’m feeling lazy.

Loved everything except the table of 10 who come every Friday to eat and smoke cigars. We were seated outside as far as possible but one man was aware of our issues with both the smoke and smell. He deliberately walked and puffed past our table three time. The ending discussion was not pleasant. But does not reflect on food or staff.

beautiful setting in the courtyard. Quiet setting, you can talk and hear one another. Food was excellent. Our group had the braised short rib, sea bass and veal. Risotto was very good and the deserts were fantastic. The service was very good, we brought two bottles of wine and they served them properly.

Thoroughly disappointing
Bland food, mediocre service and a waste of what was once a great restaurant.
My wife ordered the veal and I the sea bass, they were both so off in flavor and so bland, if I’m adding salty to my appetizer, salad and main dish...the chef is not don’t his job. And it’s not it was lacking salt, it just had no flavor. And the waiters reaction to us sending back the dessert because it was inedible...”uhhh okay”
Don’t waste your time and money, moreover, don’t celebrate a birthday or anniversary here, it will be an unforgettable night, but not for the right reason
