Millioke Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I stopped by Milloke for lunch, it was a poor choice.
The food was not good; the tots were cold in the center, the cheese steak was flavorless, and the burger was a hockey puck. The one bright side was that the bacon, on both of our sandwiches was cooked nicely.
A manager did comp the meal, fortunately, we did not have to pay for this terrible experience. Most disappointing is that I really wanted to like this place.
My friend and I made early dinner dinner reservations--5:45pm--so that we could have an unrushed meal before a performance at 7:30. We ordered salads around 6:00 and it took our server over half an hour to bring our salads to us. Instead of having time to enjoy our food, we had 15 minutes to eat, pay and leave. The ironic thing is, when we met our server, he asked if we were going to a show and seemed very understanding of our time frame. I left the restaurant irritated and harried. The server apologized that our food came out so late and offered to give us a round of drinks if we ever came back but we won't be going back anytime soon. There are other options in the area for pre-theater dining that are better. From reading a few other reviews, our experience was not unique.
I have dinned here a couple of times and always enjoyed the food. Very, very good...had the filet and it was cooked perfectly at medium rare. The beer cheese fondue was also a huge hit with my wife.
The only negative was the slow service. We went on snowy Sunday night and I think there were 7 other people there, all sitting at the bar. It still took them 59 min to get our entree. I don't remember our servers name but he was an older gentleman, not that it matters but didn't seem to be working at full speed. I am for having a slow meal but not having our entree in that amount of time was a bit of a let down.
Other than that highly recommended.
Food and the waitress' service were fine. The issue was that this was our employee Christmas dinner, and the reservation was made well in advance. Even so. we were placed at a crappy high-top near the bar. My expression made it abundantly clear that I was NOT happy when she asked if the high-top was okay, and when we inquired about a beautiful, large table in the corner, she tried to talk us out of it. I went along with it because I did not want to put a damper on the evening for our staff, but the evening was wrecked as far as I was concerned. I also wondered afterward if we double-tipped, because if a gratuity was added to the bill for a large party, the waitress did not tell us about it.
I really want to love Millioke, if for its name alone. Very nice place, and comfortable. They must have been understaffed as our waiter was hard to pin down. Food was good or very good, unfortunately I ordered the pork chop medium. I guess medium pork chop means "warm in the middle" as when I asked about I was told this is how we do it. In fairness it was a massive cut, and the part that was cooked was awesome. Apps were also awesome. Not off my list, would try again
I made reservations on Open Table at 6:45., and asked the server about the happy hour specials. We got a few beers and appetizers along with dinner. I didn't notice until I got back to my hotel room that I didn't receive the happy hour pricing. I shouldn't have to think about making sure the bill was correct, however I get that I should have. 3 stars instead.
Millioke was a nice place to dine. Modern and classy. The menu is a little on the smaller side. We chose the burgers for something light for dinner. They are pretzel bread buns. Our waiter was fun, and had a good story about portion sizes.The pretzel is big, and the bacon wrapped shrimp were tasty. It is a good spot for dinner before a show.
We came to celebrate a birthday, and were incredibly impressed. The service was first rate, attentive and friendly but not overbearing. The food was unique and so delicious. And the desserts came with a candle for proper wish making! We will definitely return!
Our server was so friendly and accomodating. We waited to be seated for a bit of time,but once we got our seats, we were taken care of fabulously. We were given a private room with a TV and it worked out so well with our 3 young children. If I lived in the area, I'd dine here regularly with my kids. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I am gluten free and they were incredibly accomodating.
I knew the menu would be limited but I expected at least some specials. My daughter received the wrong meal and ended up eating on her own as we had all finished by the time her corrected meal arrived. The manager and staff were extremely apologetic and did not charge us for my daughter's meal. The soup of the day was not available nor was a couple of the signature cocktails. The restrooms were nearly 50 yards away from the restaurant through the hotel lobby. The food was slightly above average.
Our server was not very knowledgeable or cheerful - he was a large part of the overall rating for the restaurant.
The appetizer - beer cheese fondue - was delicious. The risotto (ratatouie?) was good though the zucchini was burnt around the edges to the point it tasted badly. The squash was cooked well.
We hadn't eaten at Millioke in at least a year, so returned for Downtown Dining. Our waiter enthusiastically pointed out that the specials were not all on the everyday menu. The apricot Brussels sprout salad and the chilled watermelon soup were both fantastic. The steaks were a bit grisselly. The lemon curd schaum torte was mostly curd with berries, which we preferred. There is a nice cocktail menu and a full selection of tap Sierra Nevada beers.
Went here for downtown dining and was very impressed. Everything was very well prepared and creative, which I appreciate in my food. The white fish with sweet potatoes was absolutely perfect and melted in my mouth- my boyfriend's steak was equally well prepared. Since it was the downtown dining menu, not everything was what I would have chosen to have ordered, but we enjoyed it all the same. I looked at the menu and it definitely looks like I will be back sometime to try some other items. However, it is rather pricey so I will have to save it for a special occasion.
Went here for lunch with a coworker. I had watermelon soup, the cheese burger, and a lemon curd tort. My coworker had the same soup, a turkey wrap, and a peach cobbler dessert. The soups tasted more like cucumber than anything else. The burger should have been medium and it was completely rare on the inside, with a burnt char edge. Both the deserts were bitter and not enjoyable. The decor was beautiful! Love the design, lighting, and furniture.
My husband and I tried this restaurant for something different. We went during the downtown dinning meal. His whitefish was very good. I tried the steak which was too salty. My brussel sprout salad was lacking flavor as was his watermelon soup. My pound cake was soggy where as his lemon dessert was good. I would never go back.
I dined here with a co-worker. The starters - watermelon soup, brussel sprout salad with dried apricot - were less than amazing. In addition, the presentation on the salad left a lot to be desired.
The entrees were both really good - chicken cobb wrap and a burger.
The desserts were already plated and we had to take them to-go which detracted from the experience. The lemon curd dessert was delicious but the soaked cake was not.
Overall, it was worth checking out during Downtown Dining Week. I don't know if I'll be back.
Our first visit was for Mother's Day Brunch. I was nervous as we had never even heard of the restaurant. It was FANTASTIC. The staff was very friendly. Our server Oliver was top-notch. Great tasting food. Excellent service and value. We will be back for sure!
We went in for Mother's Day breakfast and our server Marvin was fantastic. He made our breakfast even better with his great personality. All of us had the Eggs Benedict. The hollandaise sauce was so silky and very tasty. We would definitely go back here for the breakfast. A little pricey but with the service we had it was definitely worth it.
My friend and I got together for dinner for the first time in years, and decided on Millioke. The food and ambiance were good, but the service really made the experience all the more special. Shauna is so friendly and attentive, and she has such a vivacious personality, that my friend and I were still remarking about her the day after our dinner.
