Dessert first?

Always save room for dessert at Mildred's, and that goes for the physical space in the restaurant too, as the tables are snugly deployed

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...

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 nicer than big-name chain restaurants. I have only been during... More

A friend and I have made a habit of having Sunday brunch at different places in Gville for the past several years. Our latest favorite is Mildred's. They make a great Eggs Benedict which (with dollar upcharge) comes with a beautiful fresh fruit salad. Many other items on menu as well as beverages. Ambiance is little quiet (great for reading...

I love this restaurant. But when dining there last night with my vegetarian friend, realized there are NO vegetarian entrees nor soups. Very disappointing.

We also had difficulty finding the restaurant which is located in the back of a strip shopping mall. We telephoned the restaurant and had them stay on the line so that we could follow their directions - without the phone even our GPS couldn't find it. The food was very average with little to no creativity. My husband's salad was... More

Entrees were great, but Appetizer of Crostini, was pretty awful. Efficient friendly service. Will go back, but definitely stay away from Crostini

My wife and I had dinner here during a visit to our son and his family in the area. Though it was a little difficult to find due to rather small signage, the food and service was excellent. I had grouper, my wife had the lobster with Risotto. Both of these were excellent. Before that we shared a "grilled Ceaser... More

As a visitor to town, I was treated to dinner here by a group of five friends. One said that Mildred's was one of their favorite restaurants in Gainesville and suggested that we try it. That was a good choice. It was a Thursday night and we arrived at about 6:30 or so. The restaurant was not busy and we... More
