The service was excellent, the tables are close. Overall the food was excellent, except for the shrimp appetizer, something was just off. The shrimp were very small and kind of mushy. The Arctic char was fantastic as was the apple pie.

Had guests in from out of town. Heard that Model was one of the best restaurants in town (never been). We had dinner and for the most part the food, service and ambiance were excellent. We did however have the steak (that we ordered early because it took over an hour to cook) and it was not good at all. It was shared and all six of us had one/ two bites and couldn’t have any more. That part was very disappointing. We were credited for the steak but it did impact the over all experience. I would certainly give Model another shot. Just unfortunate about that one particular item.

Model Milk has amazing cocktails-my personal fav is the Voilet Femme. SO good. Have been there once before and our most recent visit was for the Sunday Supper Meal Time with Medina. The head chef, Jeremy who crafted the menu that night was on his game. Outstanding food. He also explained each dish, the inspiration behind it, and made sure we were well taken care of. A night to remember! Also, I have never had beets ANYWHERE else that does them like Model Milk does- I want the secret.

The staff were AMAZING! Both front and back of the house. And the food was bonkers. Sitting up near the kitchen was the best, you see an appreciation of the hard work from the kitchen staff.. very professional and fun. Thank you for an incredible meal and experience! We will be going back again.

Great food with a modern twist. Great drink menu which is not the same old like other restaurants. Family style was great on Sunday. Very excited to come back and check out the rest of the menu

Only the Sunday menu. Their weekly menu is bland and uninteresting.

The service puts model milk in a class by itself. Our server(s) were outstanding - accommodating an extra last minute guest, suggesting menu and drink items, and very professional.
Food was very very good, as usual. My friend and I did not like the new mushroom dish. It’s first time I’ve been disappointed with a dish at MM.
The server deleted it from the bill.

I am vegan and we picked few vegan dishes like the beets, mushrooms and eggplants
Unfortunately, the mushrooms and eggplants were deep fried battered dishes, i would have definitely enjoyed them more if they are grilled or sautéed because fried are too heavy for me at dinner time

Drinks were delicious (awesome cocktails), but the fish was hard and not particularly tasty. Its edges were slightly burnt. The portion sizes are also quite small, especially considering the cost of the main dishes.

Great food selection and electric atmosphere. Great place to meet friends, share some appetizers and some food. I don’t think I would come here for a romantic dinner. Great service. Would come back again!

During a previous visit there was a mix-up in the kitchen that delayed our meals. Management and staff more than made up for it on our return visit, with prompt and friendly service, and excellent help with our selections. The meals were top notch and the apple pie, in particular, was the best I've ever had anywhere, including my Mom's!

Excellent family style meal overall and excellent service! I have one issue though...when you are a table of 4 and the salad, clams and bread are the same sized serving as all of the tables of 2, I really feel like you are getting screwed over. Something to be aware of for the restaurant.
