Waitress was great only real issue was the side order of brussell sprouts had to be asked about and we didn't get until entrees where half to three quarters eaten. Poor timing as this was to be a shared vegetable dish

Great service and food was superb. I'm super picky and the attention to detail from the servers was top shelf.
Highly recommend and worth the drive into Toronto.

The menu has changed since we were last here. It has been condensed & the prices have definitely increased as well. The food was great as per usual & that is why we continue to come back! Dinner for 2 with drinks will be $225+

One of the best mid to high range restaurants in the downtown core. Service is professional and friendly. The kitchen is excellent and very quick to correct errors - if any.

This is a great spot before a leafs or raps game. Food and service is great. Wasn’t thrilled with having to sit outside. When I arrived, I asked to be put on a list to grab a table
Inside when one became available, I was told I was first on the list and proceeded to see people who came in after me get a table. Normally I would have said something, but we were in a hurry to get to the game.

Miller tavern is becoming my go-to spot before a leaf game. Great location, close to parking and arena! Staff always accommodating, hosts are welcoming and food is well presented, not to mention delicious. Prices are slightly high but in line with downtown dining. At least the quality and taste match the price! Thanks for a great pre-game experience!!

Everything was great, except the noise was waaaay too much. I understand it was a Friday night, and the restaurant was full. But between the music and then the patrons having to shout over it, conversation at my table was limited because we were tired of shouting to each other. Couldn’t hear a word our server said, so that was a missed opportunity for him getting to shine a little, as well.

It's been a lo(ooooooooooo)ng pandemic, and you never really know what to expect from restaurants anymore. Will the food quality still be good? Will the serving staff be happy to be there, or completely frazzled and overwhelmed? We're allowed inside restaurants now, but will it ever feel like it used to, BC (before Corona)?

Yes. Yes it will.

The food quality was excellent, which I expected. But the service was fantastic, and that's what's really staying with me, even the next day. Our server (Robert, I believe his name was) was so relaxed and friendly with us - he seemed to actually just enjoy being there. I felt like we were in someone's home, despite the fact that the place was packed with Raptors fans and it looked like most of the tables were full. On top of Robert, there was always someone coming by to remove a dirty dish, or just check on us.

It was the most pleasant dining experience I've had in a long time, and I think we may have just found our pre-game ritual. Steak and the game!

I appreciate the service and the attention to detail. I'm so glad good dining isn't dead!

Miller’s is always a good place to eat before the game although this time it was just a little off. Getting in was a little slower as was expected with COVID protocols being observed as they should but the wine and mains took longer than we’re used to at Miller’s. Our server was attentive with water and menus right away, friendly, personable and knowledgeable when we asked questions. Calamari appetizer came quickly but the wine and mains took much longer than expected. Nothing that required a complaint but, you shouldn’t have to ask how much longer. To be fair it was game night and they did get a crowd all at once but, we’ve been there before game time quite a few times and this was different.

Nice place and you can't beat the location near scotia bank arena. It was just a bit cold as the doors were left open to the patio and it was quite breezy. I would have prefered if they kept the door closed for warmth

My wife and I thought the food was great. The mussels were huge and the fries are outstanding.
Our server Jen was very good.
The restaurant even called to see if I left my hat behind.
Highly recommended!!

Ordered calamari ribeye and a side of truffle macaroni and cheese for 2 to share. Tried the French butter sauce on the ribeye however flavour was far too rich and over powering. Food was great overall. Price was to be expected given the area. Service was friendly and attentive. However restaurant charges $8 for sparkling and flat water which is ridiculously high. Will come back but will be adamant about requesting tap water. Given that restaurants need to recoup costs, the pushes for incidentals like water and upgrades hit the wallet but I’m sure a tactic for them to make back profit.

Pricing was that of a top-rated Toronto steakhouse, quality was that of a mediocre roadside diner.
Ahi tuna tasted like gooey bubblegum, Mac and cheese had zero flavour, crab cake was far too salty, there was no dish that stood out or warranted the price charged. Someone seriously needs to check in on the kitchen, to see if they are actually qualified to prepare food at this price level. Truly a disappointing dining experience.

Were our for lunch before a ballgame. We had the tavern burger (amazing), and the rib dip (also amazing). Make sure you try the fries they are the best I have ever had.
