Our brunch was well fresh, flavorful, and artfully prepared. The service will bring me back in to eat, both because of the helpful host as well as our attentive intuitive server. The ample space is bathed in natural light. Somewhat expensive but worth the experience.

Here’s the thing...The Milling Room is solid...I can’t really complain about too much (exceptions below) but I still find myself comparing this iteration with the Scott Bryan years! Bryan’s food was more refined and the menu a bit more balanced than the current place. I especially miss his touch with meat! The Milling Room now is very fish-heavy...and they do a fine job, but Bryan could really grill a nice steak. And that’s my main complaint. Get rid of the 60-day dried aged Strip Steak and bring back a damned Rib-Eye! A Rib-Eye is ALWAYS a better tasting cut and whatever they do to that Strip Steak ain’t good. Ditto their usual Filet ‘special’...it’s almost always a little tasteless. But if you stick with their pasta or fish mains, you’ll be fine. And corkage-free Tuesday’s is still a major draw. Service and ambience are top notch, but I’ll add a star if a couple of meat selections get added to an otherwise good menu.....

We celebrated our oldest daughter’s birthday there. Food was excellent, good wine selection without being overwhelming. The team made her feel special by putting a candle on her dessert. It was very fun!

Outstanding server: Katherin

Not happy about some of the menu changes and some of the pricing. The new version of your steak tartare is misguided and served with the wrong kind of bread, (thickly cut toasted white bread, too spongy). There also seems to be a lot less of the tartare than before. The octopus was ruined by an overly spicy sauce. Salad and soup were good although I do wonder whether those bits of mushroom in the squash soup were really chanterelles. They didn't look or taste like it.

Coming onto the dining room wes very picturesque! It was very welcoming! The wait staff was attentive but not pushy, very helpful in describing the menu items & asking about any allergies (of which i did!) The food was served in an appetizing way & each course was Delish!! Thanx

I have to say our server Lizzy was absolutely fantastic. Every single time I go into Milling room she genuinely makes the experience worth it. She remembered my name after only being there one time months prior... She makes everyone feel so welcome, warm, and like we are guests her in home. She has an extensive knowledge not only on the menu, but also wine pairings, cultural an dining protocol, and my favorite her knowledge for food. I am not always the easiest of guests and I know that, but she truly makes my quirks welcome. Thank you Lizzy you are a gem!

We had such a great time at The Milling Room. The service was impeccable - your wine was always poured, your napkin was folded if you got up from the seat, and our server was extremely knowledgeable about the ingredients of the food because our table had several dietary restrictions! The food was AMAZING!! We got the octopus, ceviche, salad, and beef tartare appetizers for a table of 6 which were all amazing. Most of us got seafood which was cooked to perfection and very complex in flavor profile. Would definitely come back!

Food is excellent but the service leaves a lot to be desired. Drinks came out very slowly (I think our server might have forgotten to put our drinks order in), and we often couldn't find our server or anyone else for that matter to help us. It was probably just an off-night; we'll try again.

First time here for brunch and was quite happy with the experience. We ordered eggs B, an omelette, and salmon with latkes. All were excellent. The salmon dish was somewhat small but nevertheless commendable. Enjoyed sitting under the skylight and the service was friendly and professional. Berry dessert was excellent too.

A great dinner spot in the Upper West Side. We made reservations here on a Saturday night and had no problems once we arrived. The ambiance is perfect here with a nice open dining space. Food and drinks are outstanding. Highly recommend for a night out in the city.

We stopped going to the Milling Room about a year ago after a disastrous meal under their new chef. This week, we returned & were delighted that the restaurant is back to being very well run and with a lovely, innovative menu and wonderful service. Our only complaint: the dining room was super chilly.
