We live about 45 min away and have been coming to Twenty Milk Street once, twice or even three times a year for many years now. We have always had a great experience. We usually go as a couple, but have brought our adult children and guests as well. The food is prepared very consistently. The ingredients are fresh and the menu changes often enough to provide new choices. Service is always excellent. It’s a nice quiet comfy atmosphere with fireplace. I feel it’s a bit of a secret place since they are in the hotel.
My husband and I dined on an unusually busy Sunday night. One waitstaff and one receptionist cared for the room. The service was just wonderful. We felt as if we were the most important people in the room.
Amazing in every way! Thank you!
We enjoyed a lovely evening out. The fireplace and the live piano always add to the enjoyment.
We love the understated ambiance of the restaurant. Dark wood, nice views of the surrounding streets, low lights. My husband had a lobster, starting with a clam chowder. I enjoyed shrimp and grits, with pork belly...nice contrasts. And we split a great mousse cake with ice cream. The service was excellent, as always. Very enjoyable evening and great food!
Have been to 20 Milk in the past and enjoyed it more. We were told that the kitchen was overwhelmed because the Armory was busy. Needless to say it was a long wait to receive our meals. Based on some of the other comments in the dining room , others food was not good once it arrived. Our food was good once we got it but server was absent with minimal follow up throughout the evening. Disappointing experience compared to prior visits.
Went to Milk Street due to an Open Table gift certificate. Very pleased with the food and service. The 3 course prix fixe menu is a great value. We'll go there again.
Food, ambiance, and service were superb!
Would certainly recommend to others. In fact, I already have.
This restaurant is a hidden gem in Portland. The staff (especially John at breakfast/lunch) are amazing and engaging.
Have been going to this restaurant for 8+ years and have never had a bad experience.
We were pretty disappointed with our experience at Milk Street unfortunately. The crowd is definitely "older". The chairs were extremely comfortable. The bread was delicious. The rest of the food left a lot to be desired.
