Loved the food and the service here! Our server, Roberto was so great!
This restaurant was stunning inside!! The menu and atmosphere were equally amazing. We ordered steak, scallops and cauliflower - everyone’s dishes were fantastic. I would absolutely go back!
excellent service, as always...attentive but not intrusive..highly recommend
Neighborhood favorite that continues to deliver great food and service. Love it!!
Great outdoor dining set up. New additions to menu are delicious such as the branzino and beet salad. Waiter was excellent.
There are lots of good restaurants in the neighborhood, but objectively - and even for value - The Milling Room is the best. The food is over-the-top exceptional - I've been four times in the past three weeks and every time the food and service have been flawless. It's pretty easy to spend $25-$40 on an entree on the UWS, but it really feels worth it here. More than happy to keep going to keep a local gem in business.
The food and choice of wines by the glass were excellent.
We love the Milling room, but didn't think the food was quite as good as in the past.
So happy The Milling Room has reopened! It’s the only restaurant where we feel comfortable sitting indoors, with its soaring ceiling and spacious dining room. While they took every precaution and followed pandemic protocols - temperature checks, contact tracing information, masks required, etc. it was still a very relaxing experience. My two friends and I thought the food was as good as always, and the service was friendly and efficient. My yellowfin tuna appetizer was beautifully presented and delicious, and the scallops dish came with celtuce, a vegetable I’ve only eaten in Asia. My friends enjoyed their dishes as well. We made the right decision when we selected The Milling Room for our gathering - it’s a special place! (10/7/2020)
Excellent service from Tomas, our waiter. The food was out of this world and the wine recommendation was on point. The restaurant honored my dietary restrictions and the accommodations did not affect the quality or presentation of my entree. I would love to come back and dine indoors when the opportunity arises. The pics of the indoor space look fantastic. This was a wonderful experience with strict adherence to social distancing and mask-wearing by the staff.
Delicious food and excellent service. Just a pleasure every time
The food is fantastic and the environment/ambiance is incredible - I think it's the most beautiful restaurant in the Upper West Side. Perfect date night in the neighborhood.
Pretty good. The service was excellent. My date showed up without a mask, so the restaurant supplied her with one. The wait staff was very attentive, friendly, and guided us through the food menu and the cocktail list, for us, very particular Foodies.
I may be just a little bit old fashioned, but when I order a steak I crazily expect a steak, not just two slices of meat. For $$38 bucks it's hard to find "value".
Delicious chewy bread and the Yellowfin appetizer, yum.
Interesting menu selections, prepared well. The outside seating was comfortable. COVID precautions clearly were being followed.
They had amazing service and accommodated my friend and our three kids on the patio. It was so nice and the food was not only beautiful but delicious!
Very nice outdoor dining but Columbus Avenue can be noisy.
Given the stress of Covid19, the Milling Room was very relaxed and thoughtfully set up. The food was excellent and the service very attentive.
It was a perfect date night for us. The salmon was perfectly cooked. The roasted chicken was amazingly moist. The shishito peppers were delicious. We saw the staff wipe down every surface after each dining experience.
Wonderful service, delicious food. Overall a great experience. I will be back!
Food was delicious! The best distances set up
They've really thought through their outdoor space! It's pleasure to eat outside under the tent. The food has also improved a lot and it was good before! While it's a bit expensive it's a really good meal with great service.
Had a lovely meal at Milling Room’s lovely sidewalk set up! Terrific food and wonderful service.
Good service can make or break a dining experience. We had attentive (but not overbearing) service and delicious food. An overall wonderful evening!
Fabulous job with outdoor dining setup. Great to be back at Milling Room!
Excellent food, good portions. Fresh and flavorful.
great experience with outdoor dining, servers were excellent and food was delicious!
I was for the most part very happy with my meal at The Milling Room, especially since I
missed eating out so much! My first course, heirloom beets and burata salad with figues
was sublime, the next course Waygu beef less so. But I'm giving restaurants extra
allowances during these trying times.
The opening of The Milling Room for outdoor dinning coincided with an event requiring celebration. The Milling Room has been the restaurant we turn to celebrate in the past. While we missed the indoor ambiance of light and largesse, the presentation of outdoor tables is well spaces with privacy structures between tables. The menu still offers unique dishes memorably delicious, the service is courteous and smooth, the celebration is fulsome as always at the Milling Room.
We’ve eaten at the milling room when they had indoor dining. You could always count on well prepared, if perhaps uninspiring meals. However the salmon that I had was ok but price doesn’t make mediocre meals worth it.
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!
Great way to spend a birthday! Highly recommended
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.
A very beautiful setting, and plenty of room to be comfortable.
Food was delicious!
Amazing loved it
Great place. The food took a little long to cook
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.
5 stars for the bread alone. Great experience overall of course but, that bread though...
