Amazing dinner. Arrived early. Asked the waiter for his favorites. He showed my husband the fresh picks and we had a memorable dinner. The last time we ate at Milo’s we saw Christie Brinkley! Our fav place to eat in NYC!

Estuvo estupendo, un pescado, que pedimos al Horno, diento que le falto alguna guarnición. El cilindro de calabazas, estupendo. Los la pasamos muy bien.

Everything was very salty and although we had fish (very light option) we had an upset stomach from lunch time until 11pm.
Also our reservation was for 3pm and we were there at 2.55. The minute we sat at the table they told us the kitchen is already closed but you can order something fast if you need. I don’t want to be rushed for lunch I paid $38 to eat tomatoes and cucumbers. They should probably have their last sitting 30 mins before the kitchen closes as all other places do.

Milos is always wonderful. Great service and food! But $102 for an individual piece of fish with simply lemon and capers is a bit over the top. Wish there were more affordable options for the fresh fish.

As always, the food and the surroundings were wonderful, however we were gravely disappointed in the service at Milos last night.

My wife and I waited one-half hour to get our order of two glasses of wine. It was an hour and twenty minutes for the food arrived. We ordered grilled Dover Sole for two, but we received sautéed Dover Sole—and it was cold. Still it was delicious and we ate it without complaining for fear of losing even more time.

We skipped dessert and ordered coffee and the check. By the time we got the check, we had been at Milos for two hours. At that point we had to run the few blocks to Carnegie Hall for an 8:00 curtain.

Normally, I would not complain, but at Estiatorio Milos with among the highest ratings and highest cost of all New York City restaurants, this should never have happened.

Very expensive fish that is not as good as you should expect. The apps (octopus and fried zucchini) were great.

Los platillos Lis trajeron todo junto, casi casi los aventaban en la mesa… nuestro mesero nada más lo vimos al principio y al traer la cuenta… todo nos trajo el ayudante y se notó que el pobre hombre estaba abrumado.

Las papas de acompañamiento se les habían olvidado y las trajeron casi cuando acabamos la comida.

Los cafés que pedimos con el postre nunca llegaron.

Hemos ido muchas veces al Milos. Es uno de mis restaurantes favoritos. Simplemente no sabemos que paso anoche…?!?!??

Milos is a very nice, large restaurant. They run a tight ship. I ordered the Tuna Tartare. It was very salty. Made no sense to use that much salt. They were out of my first two choices of fish. I followed the waiters direction and ordered his suggestion. $130.00 fish and it wasn’t as good as the Halibut my wife ordered. No question this place has fresh seafood, but it’s very pricey for what u get.

Have been to a few different Milos' and found the staff here to be the best. My only complaint of the entire night was that the greek salad (a staple) was to tomato-centric but that's likely owing to the change of seasons.

Asked the concierge at my upscale midtown hotel for a recommendation for fine dining AFTER a Broadway show ending at 10. Got this recommendation and made a 10:30 pm reservation on Open Table. Arrived 5 minutes BEFORE my reservation and was told the kitchen would be CLOSING in 10 minutes. Why in the world would any fine dining establishment take reservations knowing the kitchen would be closing in ten minutes? The waitstaff were polite enough, but basically shrugged their shoulders and gave me the “we’ll try to get you most of what you want” attitude. I don’t know about most people, but when I choose to go out to a restaurant and spend $500+ (and I have dined around the world in Michelin starred restaurants), I don’t expect to be rushed, begrudgingly agreeing to “try to bring dessert and “maybe I can get you a coffee” when I asked
(As it turned out, without asking my guests, the waiter brought ONLY me an espresso, ignoring my guests completely-never even asking them if they would care for something).
The food was delicious but quite simple, the presentation was mediocre, and the staff seemed tired and “put out” by having to serve us so late, as if I had done something wrong.
Had it not been a special occasion, I would have made a much bigger deal of all of this with the management.

Food was good but the overall experience was really diminished by the lack of attentive service. Very very disappointed.

This restaurant never disappoints with the quality of its food. However, lately the service is a bit spotty, and I attribute it to the fact that, while there are many waiters, there does not seem to be ONE dedicated to one's table. Different waiters stop by, or don't. We found the service to be slow, and were trying to get attention of any waiter three or four times during the meal. However, the place is grand in ambience, and the food (try the octopus!) always superb. Hope they get their service upgraded.

Great outdoor seating, especially under the tent. This time, we were in the street shed. The Faroe Island salmon is the closest to wild you can get. My dining partner and I both enjoyed every bite.

As I've written after each visit, put simply there is no better lunch offered in Manhattan. Handsome spot, food of the highest quality, skillfully prepared, superb, attentive service and a fine wine list To quibble just a bit, some of the supplements seem a tough high. But, who could ask for anything more?

Our server was bad. He didn't pay much attention to us. When he was at our table, he was looking other tables and his mind and attention was not with us. He didn't check on us at all, and coffee we ordered was very cold. he didn't bring a pen to sign the check so I used my own pen. When he came to pick up the signed copy of check, he took my pen! I called him to say it's mine but he didn't even hear me or turn his head back and just took off, so I let him have it since we didn't even want to talk this rude guy. I was with 2 of my clients and they were stunned by this kind of reputable establishment to have that kind of bad, rude server. Host/Greeters also didn't say good bye or thank you to us when we were leaving. Bad service overall but food was at least good.
