It was very empty due to Corona virus but the place was great; we will come back for dinner after this pandemic calmed down

We went to The Milling Room to celebrate our friends’ birthdays. This was not our first time at the restaurant The food was delicious; service impeccable and ambiance lovely for the occasion! Tables are set far enough apart that it made conversation easy and, given concerns regarding Covid-19, very comfortable. Will definitely go back!

Had a delicious meal inside a beautiful place! The special, beet pasta with lobster was a particular hit! Sadly had to wait almost 40 minutes to be seated even though we had a reservation. Yet-would definitely go back, it was worth the wait.

It is a solid neighborhood restaurant with good food and service but it is expensive. It is priced like a midtown Manhattan restaurant which it is not. Dinner in the neighborhood should not have to be over 100 a person. 70ish is more my speed.

Food was very good as was the service. But a noisy room — difficult for conversation.

The food here is absolutely wonderful, with terrific seasonal choices. Staff were great. I thought the price was good value for what we got.

I deplore that Open Table requires me to say that the noise level was "energetic." It was loud and disturbing and got in the way of enjoying the food.

This was our 2nd time back and we were both unhappy with our entrees. The pasta course was excellent, but the rest of the meal was a disappointment.

Went with the larger family for breakfast. Service was excellent. Attentive but not intrusive. Always made sure we had water or beverage. Plentiful coffee. Very nice. Space is beautiful with gorgeous sunlight in the morning. My sister said that she always goes here because the acoustics in the room - maybe bc of how it’s structured - you can always hear the conversation at the table no matter how packed the place is. I had the grapefruit brûlée and two eggs. The grapefruit was delicious with a crisp sweet shell. Can I try this at home? So good! The crab scramble was great per my brother. Was served in this cute little skillet. The waffle didn’t seem to get the best review. Bacon was good though I wish it could have been a bit crispier. Worth the price because of service and location for me. Food yesterday was hit or miss based on the order. What is good is really really good.

We were celebrating Valentine’s Day and we wanted a romantic spot with good food but didn’t want the overwhelming crowd, so we went the Saturday after. The staff was attentive the food was amazing and we were able to sit and have a lovely evening together without the huge crowd.

The side of potatoes, and the bread, were the best ever! I do think they should consider offering an Australian Sauvignon blanc by the glass, however.

The restaurant has a lovely ambiance and decor. The food and the service were very, very good. the prices were a little high but not outrageous. The only problem was with a number of the cocktails. The amount given was chintzy, very poor for the price charged. It would discourage me from ordering cocktails in the future.

While the ambience, food quality and tableside service was good, the front of the house service was abysmal, especially considering the hype of the restaurant and expectations around the prix fixe special occasion menu. Essentially there as blanket disregard for quality of our party's wait time, which extended beyond the time of our reservation, despite repeatedly approaching hostess stand and 2 requests for management to share feedback over the delayed seating left our party feeling highly disappointed in the overall experience. I am of the mindset that the truth of a company's commitment to service and its patrons shines forth during difficult or challenging circumstances, not during easy/zero issue check-ins. Milling Room failed on virtually every level as it related to this. Thinly veiled hostility and pretentious attitudes left our party speechless. WILL NOT BE BACK.

A nice happy drink in the bar before going to our table. Our entrees were fantastic. One vegetarian and one was a cod dish. Wine was superior. Excellent service. Thanks!

Great vibe. The food was amazing. My husband and I split 3 courses so we could sample a variety of items and the restaurant did this perfectly.
