    Amazing food, great service. Not really into the "farmhouse chic" decor (or the uncomfortable chairs) and it was hard to talk over the noise, but everything else was so good I would go back again.

    Food is great, wine list is good and cocktail list is limited. I’ve had excellent service and pretty mediocre service, so it all depends.

    We ordered a dish and it wasn’t to our liking. Our server (Kate) removed the dish from our bill. Prices are affordable and the menu is creative and refreshing. It can be a bit loud but the food and hospitality is worth it all. There’s parking in the rear of the establishment. Take a trip to Model Milk for a change of pace experience. Cheers!

    The food was excellent as were the drinks! Hand crafted soda and wine list! But the highlight was our server - he was EXCELLENT!! the right balance of friendly and attentive without being fake or a bother. Seriously, one of the best waiters we’ve had in YEARS and we’ve had great service, he just really stood out as he seemed to love his job!

    Understaffed for servers but ours was slow and didn’t really stay on top of us. Ran out of drinks & water multiple times.

    Model MilkResponded on August 2, 2022Good evening Thank you for taking the time to write a review. However, we clearly failed to meet the high standards we set for ourselves, and for that I apologize. Ensuring our guests feel seen and taken care of is what we strive for, and ensuring drinks and waters are filled are a part of that. We take service misses seriously and would welcome an opportunity to host you properly. Please reach out to me at rmir@modelmilk.ca so that I can personally handle your next reservation. Thank you Reshma

    Food was average, nothing exciting. Small plates & bad snacks were good drunk food but were rather expensive. Service started out strong, however we were a late reservation at 8:45pm and service dwindled as the night went on. Ending up waiting 15mins for them to clear our final plates. Despite booking a reservation a week in advance, we were seated next to the bathroom.

    Model MilkResponded on July 31, 2022Hi Johanna, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I am sorry to hear that your visit with us was not up to the standard we hope to keep. Our hope is that guests experience thoughtful service from when they enter the restaurant until they leave. Your note will help us dial in our service standards, so thank you for that. I'd like to personally handle your next reservation with us to ensure a more positive experience. My email address is rmir@modelmilk.ca Thank you, Reshma

    Pretty ordinary meal for hype. It was also very noisy that evening but it’s Stampede so… probably impacted the ambiance. The service was excellent with very high standards. They also credited a friends meal after we pointed out that the fries were so salty they were not eatable. Wondering if there was a cook change

    Model MilkResponded on July 17, 2022Thank you for taking the time to write us a review though I'm sorry to hear that your experience with us was not to the high standards we aim to keep.
