The risotto was delicious, turkey (dark meat) was not tender, service was ridiculously slow and poor. Took 45 min to get our appetizer, then waited for 20+ minutes between each course.

We went for a late lunch on the patio to celebrate my mom's birthday and Thanksgiving. The patio was a lovely setting on a beautiful day, Douglas took great care of us, and the food and wine were delicious. We'd go again.

While I do not like being rushed, a meal for two that takes over 2 1/2 hours is waaay too “leisurely.” Service was painfully slow.

We requested an item, which we were told they had (bread), although it never arrived. Food was served lukewarm. This includes the turkey, potatoes, stuffing, vegetable and gravy. We would ask for something and it. Might arrive 10 minutes after requesting it.

Turkey was dry and the gravy was gummy (they used too much flour or cornstarch). I also ordered squash agnolotti, which had a spice that burned. Additionally, they were floating in too much butter. I like al denote pasta, but this was hard.

The whole dinning experience felt very special, from the moment we met the hostess, to the house manager sitting us at a lovely outside table, under a magnificent 100 yr. Old tree with sparkling lights. The service was excellent and food was delicious. Was told that the new chef has been the best one ever. I agree.
Since it was our anniversary we had a few bites of pastry filled with custard and fruit. The plate read happy anniversary written in chocolate. A marvelous evening. Every detail was attended to.

We enjoyed a fabulous meal. Mille Fleurs is obviously a local favorite, but although we were travelling through Rancho Santa Fe, most likely not to return, we were treated graciously. Our server, Trevor, was extremely attentive. The food from the starter through dessert was impeccable.

Would have expected more "notice" on part of staff: for example, had to ask twice during our time for my water glass to be filled. It was done promptly but thinking with all the staff going by that someone should have noticed. Had to ask twice for lemons for water. Had to ask twice for a glass of ice. Perhaps a little off their game last night!:!:!:!:!:

After years of being our #1 'special occasion' restaurant, Mille Fleurs lost our business in 2018 when there was a change in executive chefs. We avoided the place for the last 3 years. But last night I went there to help celebrate a friend's birthday and I was wonderfully surprised. There is another new chef and he is outstanding! Every dish was delicious and everyone cleaned their plates. The patio dining had such a lovely ambiance with numerous heaters to take the chill out of the air. The service was excellent, albeit a bit pompous and intrusive at times. The bottom line is I'm putting Mille Fleurs back on our list of favorites...and I am eager to go back soon.

We were among the fortunate guests who dined at Mille Fleurs on the evening of October 29 in their delightful out door courtyard. It was perfect, calm and luminous just before sunset on a cloudless, clear October night. The entire staff (proprietor, table captain, wine steward, and the rest of the team) were courteous, expert, and helpful. The wine and food were delicious. We were a table of 4 guests and we all greatly enjoyed our starting courses, our entrees, and our two bottles of wine. Our only disappointment was that we did not save room for the desserts (which were very tempting).

Bertrand has managed to preserve and maintain true Fine Dining in San Diego at both of his restaurants.

As a true Restaurateur, he walks the room(s) and checks on his Patrons. He greets guests by name and his staff ensure that every need is met without being pretentious.

This is not an advertisement.

The courses and wine are only matched by the service and we found no fault in anything from start to finish.

A fabulous experience to be cherished for what it is.

So glad to finally dine at this restaurant. We live one mile away but we've just started dining out again. The service was very reminiscent of fine European dining. They never missed a beat and the wine recommendations were spot on. The food overall was excellent. I would probably not order my main dish, scallops, next time around but I should have read the description more closely. The starters were superb with the highlight of the beautifully plated beet salad. Desserts were solid. I was dining with a vegetarian, and there were options, but there needs to be a well thought out main course option. Not only would I recommend the restaurant to a friend, I will start to frequent the restaurant at least a few times a month.

A wonderful experience all around. Marco was wonderfully welcome and warm. Everyone really was, from the bus boys to the waiters and staff. The food was a pleasant surprise of culinary balance to perfection. Not over the top and not too little. Just enough for you to truly appreciate good taste. Definitely will be coming back to enjoy that and the Piano Man bonus round!
