Cool space

Original menu, terrific presentation and the space is really amazing. Love the noveau country decor. Small portions and a little hipster for my taste. (apparently I'm old) Really enjoyed the dining experience over all. My out of town business guests thouroughly enjoyed the evening. Geoff... read more

Model Milk had been recommended so we thought we'd try it. Let's say the menu was compact - limited choice, service was a bit slow, the beer tepid. I had the trio of pork, it was disappointing, it was more like a smokey German sausage, tender but bland. You would need to eat three courses to feel like your tummy... More

BE WARNED: the "LARGE" plates are not LARGE by any means. Perhaps the plates are large but the portions are tiny. Perhaps 3 Large plates would equate to one normal dish from a normal restaurant. This is just ludicrous. The reason they didn't get 1 star was because a few of the dishes were decently tasty and creative. When we... More

We had heard so much about this place and finally got a reservation. The building is a remodeled milk plant so the inside is very open and wrought iron. We sat on the top floor so great view but rather noisy. The food we found was a bit over priced for what you got, ie. chicken and waffles to share... More

First time at Model Milk, we were there for dinner. I wasn't too sure what to expect, maybe pub food.Well, was I wrong ! The creativity from the chef and his team blew me away ! Almost all of the ingredients are local so super fresh. I had some halibut (line-caught) in a tan-tan sauce with steamed chinese broccoli and... More

Great place of dinner. Innovative menu with tasy tasy food. We were 6 with twins of 11. Although they enjoyed it, I think it probably is better enjoyed by adults. We had the Wagu beef.

What a great way to spend a night out. Fantastic food well prepared. We sat at the kitchen bar and had a blast. Watching a high performing team pull off wonderful meals and appetizers while sipping a Black Manhattan ... it doesn't get any better. We will be back as often as we can.

The food is top notch. We loved it. Had a group. But we also saw celebrities there, which was fun too.
