I've been to Miller and Carter a number of times and every time the food has been excellent! The staff are good fun. Ok it's a chain but there's not many chains that deliver quite such good food. I love steak and my fillet was amazing cooked to perfection! I'm always a bit dubious about steaks in chain restaurants but... More

Worst dining experience for some time. It took staff 45 mins to take our order and it was 1.45mins before we were served the main course. Our 'steak' burgers were burnt, the bread roll dry and the fries were tasteless. Will not be doing there again.

Excellent service, excellent food, fantastic time! Visited off the cuff not having read the reviews on Trip Advisor. We ate the previous evening from the Prix Fixe menu and have to say the food was tasty and surprisingly filling. Decided to go back for a second time, which given the amount of restaurants in Birmingham to choose from, was quite... More

Decided to give the restaurant a try on a Thursday teatime. Both my wife and I were impressed by the way the restaurant was fitted out. We were shown to an upstairs table, and given our menu, which was fully explained to us. The restaurant was reasonably busy by this time ,but by 6.30.pm was really buzzing. We both had... More

Disappointing we could not book, the food was ok - I would have liked something a bit more special for what we paid and worst of all we must have been no more than 15 cm from the neighbouring table...I could hear their conversation more than I could hear ours, not the most intimate meal venue!

Asked for a quiet table but was sat next to a table of drunks. Waited 20 mins before anyone took our drinks order. Then starter arrived before our drinks. Another 20 mins wait to have our plates taken away but our mains arrived promptly after that. Ordered more drinks and finished our mains before they arrived. Food was bland and... More
