Mille Fleurs Ratings and Reviews
Classic French-German cuisine served in a superbly professional but friendly manner. Set in a wooded village near San Diego. No nouvelle cuisine here. Classic dishes, expertly prepared. Underpriced by currnt standards. Romantic country setting, perfect for a special evening.
We celebrated our anniversary there and it couldn't have been more romantic. The food, the service, the warm atmoshphere - absolute perfection. The special touch was the "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on an oval plate with candle in a wine glass, served with an amazing desert of truffles and profiteroles (one shaped into a delicate swan). We were in 7th heaven!
A wonderful, romantic spot to spend our anniversary dinner! The food was delicious ... the garden salad was so fresh and full of flavor and our entrees were superb! Our waiter was attentive, yet gave us time to relax and enjoy our cocktails and appies, and they even moved us to a more secluded table when we requested. We will go back again!
I thought the food was good, not great. I had the lamb and my wife had the sea bass. It was fresh but nothing special about it. The service was excellent and the ambiance was romantic, quaint and inviting. Overall, it was a great place for a special occasion and will try it again before I make a final judgement about the food.
We have avoided Mille Fleurs in the past, due to its dreadful snob appeal. However, we were seated in the bar, being assured it was quieter than the dining room. Due to R Week, the entire restaurant was full of diners. Our food, service etc were great. Felt oddly enough, v pubby & fun. Who knew? This restaurant is Chaine des Rottiseurs member, a great distinction! Bread & butter were weak, all else was top notch. V lovely, of course, but fun from our perspective in the bar.
Extremely exceptional service. There were so many "servers" we could not identify who they all were. The water glass and the homemade butter were continually refilled. The corn soup was very delicious and fresh tasting. The fritter potatoes fabulous- so light, crunchy and delicious. The "prime beef 3 ways" was lacking- the filet and hamburger were delicious; the hamburger being the best; the flank steak was chewy and not good flavor. I gave it to my husband, who ate it but said it was chewy. Desert was very good- mocha chocolate cake and orange crepes. We enjoyed the decor- blue tiles, archways, beautiful flowers in the lighted garden courtyard, and french accents. Rethink the prime beef 3 ways- maybe better left to a steakhouse.
The food was inventive but somehow didn't touch us. Good but not extraordinary as I had expected.
The service started off very well but become worse as the eveing went on. The bread/ butter was not replaced then the bread came after two requests but with no butter. After another request the butter came.
We had to wait for 25 minutes after our entree until desert arrived. Waiter state that they were specially made but the dinners next to us who came in at the same time got theirs in 5 or so minutes and a near by couple who had the same dinner and deserts got theirs 10-15 minutes before us. I suspect that the waiter failed to place the desert order.
We anticpated the very best and we're very disappointed.
Went to Mille Fleurs for Restaurant Week 2011. At first I made a reservation without looking on Yelp; on the day of I checked Yelp saw that MF had not-so-stellar reviews from last year's RW. I freaked out but I still went, with reservations (pun intended). When I got there with my sister, the service I got from our servers, especially the second guy, was très bien. He was funny and helpful, and when he saw that we were taking pictures with my Canon T3i, he offered to shoot for us more than once. Not only did the service warrant a fat shining star, the food lived up to its reputation as well. From the appetizers to the desserts we were spoiled with good-sized portions that tantalized our taste buds and whetted our appetite. C'est magnifique!
We ate at Mille Fleurs a year ago and thought it was fantastic. This year, we went for restaurant week and the food in both of our meals (all courses)was very average, and for the price, not very good at all. The old fashioned pretentiousness of the service was quaint and acceptable when the food was excellent, but with not so good food, it was awful. We won't be back; there are too many great restaurants to choose.
Very very disappointed with the food - given all the reviews and hype.
My fish was burned and had no flavor at all. We joked that they must have a special "rubberizer" for the chicken -- it literally resisted being cut with a knife! The service was great, the room pretty...but the food was a joke.
We felt well-cared-for. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, and I was pleased to see our table had been set so that my wife and I could sit side-by-side. Our server, Richard, was perfect, as were all the wait staff. The food and presentation were just right. In warmer weather, we would try the outdoor courtyard tables. Excellent cocktails.
We came during restaurant week, which made it a great way to sample an expensive restaurant. We looked up the menu prior to going to see if they were offering any of their "normal" menu items or if they were going to have basic dishes for restaurant week. Turns out that they had an excellent selection and offered to substitute with items from the regular menu for a nominal fee ($5 for the ones I actually considered). The cuts of meat were excellent and the beef dish I ordered had three different presentations, ranging from a reduction sauce to an au poivre sauce, beautifully balanced. The wine selection was excellent! The service was so attentive and charming, it was tough to know what part of the entire experience I liked best!
We went to Mille Fleurs during Restaurant Week. The "standard menu" was supplemented by other options at a reasonable cost and we deviated for the appetizer. Service was impeccable and the food was delicious. We did not order any wine or alcohol and were not treated with distain as we've encountered in other restaurants.
We were nicely encouraged by our waiter to visit again during the week when Restaurant Week is over and they have a $40 menu available. We will definitely go back -- and not wait until the next Restaurant Week.
As out-of-state visitors we were in town for a wedding but wanted one night to ourselves. I learned about the restaurant by reading other reviews, not from any firsthand recommendations. To find such a gem of a destination exclusively through online feedback really reinforces the value and reliability of such sources of information. The highlight of the entire evening really was the menu. Chef's German influences provided a more unusual twist on gourmet fare than is usually found in upscale California cuisine. Really nice for a change of flavor palate. Just a magnificent evening before having to tackle the wedding-caterer-dreck!
I am grateful to Mr. Wolfe for preparing, on request, the Veal Wienerschnitzel, which was not offered on the Menu during my recent luncheon. This restaurant continues to exceed my expectations in every way, and I greatly appreciate Mr. Wolfe's eagerness to accommodate special requests.
Made the celebration of our wedding anniversary very special. They figured out that we were celebrating it and they delivered a lovely plate celebhrating our ocassion. The food was delicious and the live jazz made our experience even better. We will dine again at Mille Fleurs.
