The food was fantastic and we loved the Sunday Supper theme. Staff was very friendly and quick to check in on us. The price was very reasonable for the amount of food provided. The drinks were also very delicious. No complaints here!

In the years that we’ve been to Model Milk since its inception, we have yet to have a bad meal. Food is always on point and consistent and service is always friendly and warm and very knowledgeable. It’s also the one of a handful of restaurants that we send our out of clients to, with Model Milk always at the top of our list. We like to consider ourselves well experienced gastronomically and we love everything about this place.

I enjoyed the unique ambience of Model Milk. While I did enjoy my experience, I didn't find that it stood out especially. It was just alright. It was nice to go once to try it but I have no desire to go again.

Sat at the bar by the open kitchen, and honestly one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a very long time! Summer Feast menu is SUCH good value and so delicious. You can’t go wrong picking any combo of those items. Cocktails were unique and delicious. Will definitely be going back again!

We went for our fourth anniversary dinner. Summer feast was going on and we went with the 3-course menu.
My husband has the shrimp and grits, cod with spinach and apple pie. He said that all of this was amazing and perfect portion sizing. I had the kale salad, spicy fried chicken and coconut milk sorbet. Again amazing and I was full.

Our server was very good, nice and always made sure we had a full glass of wine.

We will most definitely be back.

Model Milk was one of the restaurants participating in this year's Summer Feast. The 3 course meal was $35. It was a great deal. My dinner companion and I both ordered the same items: Shrimp & Hominy Grits, Model Milk Fried Chicken and Apple Pie. All good portions. The fried chicken had some heat as it was covered with some hot sauce. It was served with wedge salad and biscuits. The biscuits were flaky and very good. The apple pie was served with vanilla ice cream. What makes their apple pie stand out is the cheddar cheese that is baked into the crust. Our server was very attentive.

Our server was very friendly. He did not try to upsell us on anything which was a nice change. He didn't hover over us, which we hate, but he gave us the right amount of attention. The food was delicious but I found the amount more than I could eat. I would definitely recommend the Model Milk to friends and family. Next time, I would like to try breakfast or lunch at the Pigeon Hole. Definitely a restaurant I will dine at again.

We came for the summerfeast menu. We learned that the fried chicken has a very strong and loyal following. However, two of us who ordered it found it overly hot - so spicy that we couldn't eat it. Clearly, we were in the minority as it was being enjoyed by others around us. The restaurant was quick to change our dish for fried chicken without the heat and we enjoyed it very much. The menu is good value, and the service was also good.

Salad was good

Main course of chicken was misrepresented on menu. If I knew it was coated in peppers with a side of pickled peppers I would never have ordered it. When they are placing the meal in front of you is not the time to say “we consider this a Cajun fried chicken”. It was not enjoyable.
Biscuits were good.

Waiter tried to deter us from having the sorbet .......”the pie is our house specialty”

The sorbet was delightful. Light, flavourful and perfect on a hot day.......or when you have just had the house specialty of peppered everything.

Bank seating was suitable to do chin ups on the table!
