We accept reservations on a limited basis via OpenTable, but hold the majority of the restaurant for walk-in parties. Because we hold tables for walk-ins, we recommend coming in and if there is a wait, we will seat you as quickly as possible. Generally speaking, everything moves pretty quickly in here and of course the bar areas are first come, first serve.
We do not reserve outdoor tables because we can never be sure of the weather. If you make a reservation, you can request to be seated outside on the patio when a table becomes available.
We love Millies. It’s our neighborhood gem. It feels just like you’re on Cape Cod and everyone at the restaurant really shows you a good time. Kid friendly.
Vibrant atmosphere, very friendly and attentive staff, excellent food. One of our favorites!
High end neighborhood place in a high end neighborhood.
Convenient, lively and good drinks. Food seems to be slipping and new menu isn’t rocking me. The roast cod was undercooked and a sparse portion, the oyster tacos were flavorful but dry.
Overall, great food, drinks, and experience. Our server was friendly and was attentive to our needs. The menu rotates on a seasonal basis. We ordered the Caramelized Pear Bruschetta to share between two. The sweetness of the pear, nuttiness of the arugula, saltiness of prosciutto, bitterness of the blue cheese was a great combo. We also ordered the Baby Lamb Chops, which was tender and came with perfect vegetables and whipped potatoes all in a flavorful buttery sauce. The Lobster Pot Pie was very flavorful. Not your home-made flaky crust pot pie. The pastry top was very difficult to eat because it was thick and very hard. The lobster bisque came with at least three pieces of lobster and hearty vegetables. It was a bit on the salty side, but still very delicious.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Enjoyed Millie’s very much! Had some gluten free options if needed.
brought my parents in for dinner and we were treated very well
Great salads and server (Jordan!)!
The menu is varied but I find most of the dishes are a little too heavily sauced. There is an underlying richness to the soups, tuna poke, chicken skewer that is unexpected. The potstickers were delish!
The best! Everyone needs to come here.
Millie's was FANTASTIC! Great food and great atmosphere!
Noisy and uninspired food served too cold. Won’t be back.
We had such a lovely time - can't believe I hadn't made it to Millie's before, as many of my friends love it! I will say our server was extremely attentive, service was fast yet patient when we took a little while to savor the pleasure of ordering. We were one of the last tables to finish and had our leftovers boxed up, then ate some delicious ice cream from the order window. After we realized that our leftovers had been mistakenly thrown out, the manager brought us back to the open kitchen and had our server make up a bag of all the wonderful leftovers that the staff eat up after the night has ended! I will be coming back for sure. Food was to die for!! Until next time Millie!!
I want to bring friends for lunch. Is it as noisy?
We had a super brunch on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Food was delish, drinks fun...will be back!! The coffee could be better...something I don't understand about restaurants...it never seems fresh or hot enough.
Went here for lunch and sat outside. The food was great, service was a bit slow. Would recommend if you are need of a great brunch spot and want to be able to sit and not feel rushed.
Delicious scallop tacos. A bit pricey at $18 at lunch.
Great but not enough choices for non-fish eaters.
We got to the restaurant around 5:00 p.m. on a Wednesday for Happy Hour. There were no seats in the bar area but an almost empty restaurant area, and they would not allow us to order from the Happy Hour menu. Because it was after 5:00 p.m., they would not allow us to order sandwiches, since we wanted something lighter than full entrees. They had no desserts available. Our server was nice and professional and the food was good, although overpriced. It was not a bad experience, but it was not anything that made me want to go back there again soon.
It was a beautiful evening to be seated outdoors!
I will be going back. Very much like Millie's in Madaket, only better!!! I just loved this place.
I love this place and have been there a number of times. The service was very disappointing. The lemonade I ordered never appeared despite asking. I then asked for it to be taken off the bill, but was charged the wrong amount. Waited far longer than usual for food. It was disappointing because it was the first time I was bringing my parents and I had spoken so highly of this restaurant.
Great food and service. Everything was great and we enjoyed the service.
Another great meal at one of our favorite places in DC. Salads were terrific!
Food was very good. All dishes were good. Service was quite poor. Seemed like maybe a new server, but she didn’t know menu, was very late to tell us that the kitchen ran out of one of our orders (she told us when the other orders were delivered), forgot an order and then forgot about us when it was time to deliver the check. I’ve had good service here before, but this was not acceptable.
Cocktails are kinda bland.
Fabulous food and service!
My food was good but I asked for the sauce on the side. They delivered my great soft shelled crab sandwich but had run out of the sauce. It was delivered to my table, after my plate had been cleared. Plan ahead?
The food was delicious
Millie's was a fun place to dine. The service was outstanding and the food was terrific!
Best brunch spot in NW DC!!
Celebrating with out of town fiends, we got an early reservation- loud like a playground.
Honestly the entree’s were blah especially the soft shell crab.
Then, some confusion with the wine.
There was one Rosé by the bottle listed on the menu, but the server said there was another one and brought the one I did not want. Secondly,when it arrived, it was warm so we had to ask for ice for wine chilling.
It was lovely and fun vibe over all, but a bit too family friendly and “Smith point” for us.
I had the Tuna main course during an earlier visit and found it outstanding, but was disappointed this time. The pieces were sliced unevenly and there was hardly any of the delicious sauce that made it so special last time.
LOVE that u will take a reservation! Food was deelish
Fun environment, friendly service and great food! What is better than that?
Excellent food and service was amazing.
Pleasant vibe, good food, nice outdoor seating if the weather's right.
The food was outstanding! The drink selection is also really good. It is a great place to hangout and have a drink and appetizers or to bring a date for dinner. The only drawback is that the place is a bit noisy.
Had very bad luck with our server Had to go to the receptionist TWICE to just get her to come to our table. She finally came and took our order. She delivered our food and we never saw her again -- had to ask various other staff for things like salt and pepper. We go to Millie's a number of times and this was VERY bad service.
