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.
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.
Two things: (1) why not serve those good looking sandwiches after 5? Their prices are pretty close to entree prices and it is something beyond tacos etc. AND
(2) Hard time getting a reservation so we get there for our forced early reservation and the place is empty! We find out that only 20% of seating is reservations. Maybe state that somewhere?
This was my first time at Mille’s. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch there. We had ice cream for dessert. We looked forward to returning for a dinner.
Service was slightly slow but friendly - rockfish tacos were delicious.
Good for lunch, and not too crowded an August day as many kids were already back in school. We had a lovely young waiter, a student at AU who was funny and charming. I’m afraid I’ve forgotten his name. Food was good, very quick but we weren’t pushed out as it was still fairly empty. Many folks were outside. It is a noisy place and there were two moms who let their kids run all over and stand on the banquettes. Even though it’s a very family oriented place, I found that to be annoying.
The tuna tacos with Asian flare were very tasty and filling.
Excellent atmosphere and very well prepared dishes. It is on the upscale side of a casual restaurant in price, but still reasonable in the context of DC prices. Service was very good. The restaurant seemed nearly full for lunch so reservations are recommended.
Food is great. First time I order the pot stickers and they were excellent. I had the mahi mahi tacos and they were excellent. Good beers too.
I like going to Millie's. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. I like the decor because I feel as if I am at the ocean. BUT, it is extremely noisy. Even the outside area is very noisy when there are a lot of people seated in the area. I decided to give this 3 stars because I was stunned that they took the fried chicken salad off the menu and had some other Panko-type-crusted chicken seemingly in its place. I did not like it and I was disappointed. I did have their coffee ice cream for dessert and that was outstanding. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Our reserved table was there waiting for us too.
Loud, loud, and loud. Food is great, drinks okay, service good. Loud.
Excellent food and service
The first time there, but won't be the last. The food was delicious and the cocktails didn't disappoint.
The overall experience was not as good as we expected, as we returned to the restaurant after a good experience lunching there six months ago. We booked our reservation well over a month in advance and was given the worst table in the restaurant. It was about 95 degrees outside and we got the booth for 6 closest to the kitchen so it was very hot and very loud. A couple guests wanted a burger and they said they could not serve one at dinner time even though they did have a mini kids burger at dinner time. We were not checked in on regularly so we sat without beverages for much of dinner and waters were not refilled. Our entire party left very underwhelmed.
Frose was A+! We liked the pepper appetizer and the tuna poke was amazing! My fish tacos were a little bland but my friend got the lobster salad and it was so good. We'll return.
Great spot. Brought my kids who are adults and we all loved it!
We arrived at peak dining hour of 7 pm Sunday and the place was filled with people and kids. This was the noisiest time I have been here, and my companion and I had to speak quite loudly in order to understand one another. It has been much quieter when I usually come for lunch.
Also, the chairs are hard on my butt. Can you get some cushioned chairs for those of us with ender posteriors?
Taylor was awesome. Great food. Can’t wait to come back
Fresh food. Great cocktails. We only tried the sea food and everything was delicious. Lovely outdoor seating on a nice day.
Great atmosphere and food was amazing! We sat in the bar area and the drinks were really good too. Highly recommend.
Absolutely my favorite spot in my neighborhood!! Best service,staff and great healthy options.
LOVED everything about it. So cute, friendly staff, good food!! Highly recommend for any occasion. Lots of outdoor seating as well. Great neighborhood gem.
Atmosphere was terrific, wait staff was outstanding and food was fabulous!
Two for lunch. I had the Lobster salad and it was as delicious as it was generous. My lunch mate had the lobster roll sandwich, equally as delicious and generous. Love Millie’s for lunch and or dinner with its Nantucket style casual seaside atmosphere, excellent service, good drinks and tasty food. Glad to have such a fun eatery so close to home.
I ordered a salad with shrimp. The shrimp were cold and dry. Shrimp should have been cooked and hot. Salad greens were marginal. Not worth $18.
Good food. Great clam chowder. Rockfish in the tacos was a little dry. But overall food and beer selection are very good. Only problem is the high noise level. Seems like they could do something about that.
What a gem for the neighborhood. Great scene! Great people watching! Interesting meals and drinks. Super service. The ONLY minor issue is that its super loud. So, Id avoid hosting a business meeting there.
The food, service and ambiance were spectacular. To a person, everyone in our party of 8 LOVED their meal. Esther Island & Smith Point tacos were delicious, the Rhode Island quesadilla was super flavorful, the Cliff Road and Lobb were excellent salads. Make sure you leave room for ice cream!
I would definitely recommend this as a lunchtime venue. Very nicely laid out, friendly table servers and very good food. Would go back again.
Best restaurant in D.C. It is purely amazing and astonishing. The food and drinks are sensational!!!
