Service was great and it is quaint. The challenge was the food. While the portion sizes are fine and price is good the quality was so so. My guess is it was an off day as I had heard so many great things. Perhaps it was my fault for ordering pastrami but I honestly did not think it could be bad. It was one of the worse sandwiches I have ever had. It was really tough and flavor was blah. Typically pastrami is slow baked and sliced thin. This was sliced like corned beef but rubbery like it was cooked too fast. Honestly it was very difficult to chew. A colleague had shrimp and grits while another had an egg special. Neither raved about the flavor.
So for a first timer I am hoping it was simply an off day for the cooks. If we go back I will stay with something safer.
The devils mess was fabulous. This will be our first stop when we come to Richmond from now on. What a find!
Good food and great service. A very noisy table next to us made it difficult to hold a conversation; as that was at a slow time of the day.
It was a cute environment but the menu is very limited especially for children.
Always great food!
Funky, Funky.....do not judge this place's splendid "book" by its cover!! Outside may not look like much but the interior is old time throwback, great menu, tasty brunch items.....highly recommend.
Millies has been one of the best restaurants in Richmond for 30 years.
Food was great server was great but the whole wait staff was at the bar staring at us. Was early for Friday night- but too much staff standing around.
We had a delicious dinner and a very unique dessert! Going to continue going back for sure!
Great service and food.
It had been years since we had been here and thought it would be better. We had a window seat but a fly kept walking up the window. And i killed a bug crossing the table.
The food for me was just ok. My wife enjoyed hers a bit more than me. The service was good. Nice friendly man providing service.
Great food. Cozy and comfortable. Parking across the street which was a plus.
Great night. Great staff and food
A small environment, so a bit noisy, but friendly. Diversified menu that is appealing and creative.
Excellent edgy food,made even better by great service and casual atmosphere. EVERYTHING we had was just delicious from the appetizers to the desserts, we were very pleased.
We had excellent service and the food was great. We had a party of 6 on a Tuesday night. It was quiet; a perfect night for some of us to experience Millie's for the first time. Won't be the last!
Millie's is always great! This evening was Restaurant Week so even a better value but food is tasty, not pretentious and creative. Low key vibe.
Besides the fantastic food, one of the things I really liked was the welcome feeling I got as soon as I walked in the door. This comfortable welcoming service continued throughout our enjoyable evening.
Lovely night for outdoor seating - the server was attentive but not disruptive - the food was great (as it always is!).
Millie's is always so good. Staff very welcoming and the food and drink were were both exceptional.
Last Saturday evening we enjoyed yet another outstanding meal at Millie's. Having just returned from Chicago, where the extremely loud music drowned out any dinner conversation we hoped to have with our dining companions two nights in a row (even in a one-Michelin star restaurant), it was so refreshing to enjoy great food with a normal level of music in the background. The spicy tuna starter was one of the best dishes I've eaten at Millie's over the past three decades. Both my lamb sausage entree and my partner's puppy drum were cooked perfectly. These guys can compete with the best chefs anywhere.
We were celebrating the going away of a friend. A few gals in the group ordered just a drink or soup because they just wanted to be there with the group. The resultant wasn’t packed, so it wasn’t like we were taking up valuable space, but we overheard our waitress telling 2 other employees how annoying it was that she wasn’t going to make any money off of our table. It’s a cute place with some great options, but our server’s attitude definitely dampened the occasion some.
Went for dinner. Food is inventive, which I love, but execution is uneven; some dishes are great, others either bland or "off" (the desserts in particular, which looked fascinating on paper, were texturally goopy and the flavor just wasn't right). For $100+, simply not worth it, especially with all the other amazing dinner options in Richmond. Probably won't be back anytime soon, though we might check out the brunch, since it seems that's where their strength is.
Our meals were not as good as last time. Mushroom meal did not have much taste.
Millie's is a great diner to go to for a casual dinner. The food is great, the service was amazing and I would recommend it to everyone!
The grilled skirt steak was outstanding and so flavorful. we will be back for that for sure. The seared scallops were also quite good. The new creme brûlée was outstanding. Our waitress offered excellent recommendations, served our food timely and hot, and was very attentive to our needs.
We chose Millie's based on a Trip Advisor review. We were visiting Richmond for a soccer tournament and wanted to find the local places to eat. Millie's was great- it wasn't crowded on a Thursday night. Really fun vibe. I had a thai shrimp dish as did a friend I was with, and my husband had the shrimp and grits- all food was delicious!
I had so been looking forward to my return visit to Millie’s, but I was disappointed with the food. My waitress didn’t ask how I’d like my salmon prepared, and it arrived overcooked. I also felt that the salads were a bit lackluster. What a disappointment, given my wonderful meals there in the past.
Four of us dined at Millie's on a Sunday evening. Among the four of us we had Caesar salads and soup for entrees, all were great. Two of the four entrees were very good, the Spicy Thai Shrimp and the Fluke. The two entrees that were beef were quite tough and tasteless. We all had the blackberry tart for dessert and it was very good. The last time we dined at Millies, we had a beef dish that was very good. I'm hopeful this was just an off night for that particular dish.
Everything was spot on! We were introducing colleagues to the area, so Millie's was a natural choice. The drinks were delicious, and the range of choices was perfect for 4 eclectic diners.
Would not return..disappointing experience after being a customer for many years. Food soso....and lacking knowledge of offerings by staff. Sad, disppointed....other fabulous restaurants in Richmond for special times.
This was our second time at Millie’s, and our meal was even better than our first. The flavors were crisp and fresh, and we agreed that we would have been happy with almost any item on the menu. If they are serving the Orange Ginger Creme Brûlée, don’t miss it ! We three shared one, and it was a marvelous finish for an excellent meal.
As always, the food was perfectly cooked and plated. My out of town guests raved about the meal for days! The service was on point.
Our food was expertly prepared and delivered in a timely fashion. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly and the serving size was certainly enough, served with fresh peas and fennel. The NY strip with fennel salad was served with a reduction sauce and perfectly presented on a wooden board. We loved the main courses and highly recommend them.
Great food and service. Quiet and romantic atmosphere. Classic Richmond dining spot.
Millie's is always a treat. Food is always interesting, although I'm not sure I'd order the bone marrow ice cream again. Service could be a little more attentive. Lots of time with dirty plates stacked up on the table, long wait for the check when we are clearly finished, that sort of thing. Little things that could help.
Brunch at this place is fantastic, highly recommend! Dinner is a different story. Not that is was bad, it just isn't brunch. The menu doesn't excite you. There is zero wait for dinner, and a line out the door for brunch so that kinda sums it up.
Millie's crew is always on target; the finest restaurant I've ever eaten at. Really great people with real talent who care. Thank you for the consistently excellent service and food. Job well done!
I was not told I had to order from a prepared Valentines Day menu. I would not have come.
Strip steak was burnt and loaded with gristle.
Seats need cushions...way too hard.
