Great Place for Lunch

I have been a fan of Mildred's since they were located in Micanopy! The food is consistently delicious here and prices are reasonable. The quality and selections remind me of that of little bistros I've visited in larger cities. Atmosphere is quiet and service is friendly and efficient. So much... read more

It was late and we wanted a nice meal after moving our daughter into her dorm. Made a reservation on Open Table for 9:00 at 8:40. We were having trouble finding it with the GPS so called at 8:55 and were told we are closed and they didn't have our reservation. They said the kitchen had been completely broken down... More

About ten days eight of us went to dinner at Mildred's Big City food. Three of the eight were visitors from Barcelona (Spain), a city which knows a thing or to about fine food. My wife had salmon filet, which according to her was almost as good as my own salmon dishes. I ordered three appetizers, starting with a carrot... More

Cesar with chicken was a hit with my party today. The place is as nice a good as it ever was which does not explain how it had dropped out the top fifty in Gainesville on this site. It still has one of the best menus lunch and dinner in the town and best service of most any place I... More

We went on a Friday night and it wasn't very busy at all. The menu was a bit limited in selection and also pricey for Gainesville and the service was good. The lunches are better priced and offer more choices.

excellent service, lovely CLEAN setting. Good food. One of our party was disappointed in the seemingly old and chewy quiche, the rest of the party seemed pleased.

Went here for a graduation dinner and had a great 3 course meal for a good price. The Americano coffee was very good, along with the service.

My husband surprised me with a Mother's Day lunch @ Mildred's which was one of my best meals ever. The surrounding were so special, the wait staff polite and efficient and the food delicious! The bread and cake was a bit dry, but the rest of the meal as perfect. Tip #1 Order, and share a Cesear salad. This is... More

My wife and I tried Mildred's because someone gave us a gift card. We'd never heard of it nor seen it but we enjoyed it. My hangar steak was good but the brussels sprouts were the best ever. (I had never eaten them fried.) They were enough to make a small meal and with garlic and a slightly-sweet glaze, they... More

My husband and I, plus four friends, had a lovely dinner at Mildred's last night (1/21/15). For a Wednesday night there were quite a few people eating there. We had made a reservation and had the cozy round table for six, which is perfect because everyone can see everyone so conversation flows naturally. All of the food was interesting, presented...
