Surprisingly good

Dining room has a nice, comfy, old-fashioned feel. Maybe a little dowdy, but in a good way. Had breakfast only, but very good. John is a great waiter.

My partner and I have eaten here many times and enjoyed it. I made a reservation through OpenTable for my birthday. When we arrived we were told the inside dining room was closed and they only had dining outside. One would have thought that the restaurant would notify people of this change of service! It was in the low 60's!... More

We stayed at the Portland Regency for a long weekend and my husband insisted on eating breakfast each morning here. I'm more adventurous and would have liked to try different places, but he only eats oatmeal and fruit, and is very much a

My wife and I ate here to give it a try as an alternative to what are often very loud dining rooms in the area. It was quiet, so that objective was met. We were one of only two tables with people on a Friday night at 7:30. Not a good sign. The server was either new or clueless. We... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner at 20 Milk Street, the restaurant in the Regency Hotel at that address. They served a nice loaf of whole wheat cranberry bread to start. The mussels were really excellent, and the serving size was more than ample. We could have split it as an appetizer. Instead, my partner had the garden salad -... More

I am a foodie. So I wanted to go for something fancy. I heard that this place was good, so I tried it. I walked in to the hotel, then asked where the restaurant is. They led us to the restaurant. We got a table, and sat down. We then looked at the menu. Oh my god! Everything was so... More

My wife and I decided to take in an early dinner at 20 Milk Street on a Saturday night. We had actually entertained the idea of this restaurant as our Wedding Reception Dinner location the year before. We ultimately decided on something closer to home. We arrived at 20 Milk Street early at 5:30 PM which, being still light outside,... More

Twenty Milk Street is a small, quiet, very traditional (but not stuffy) restaurant, much different than the more inventive "food scene" restaurants in Portland. So if a quiet, club like atmosphere with good service and a traditional menu is what you're in the mood for on a given night, you will enjoy Twenty Milk Street. The dining room is small... More

We treat ourselves to dinner here several times a year. Tonight was not their best presentation. When the hostess seated us my wife told her that she was cold and could we sit by the fireplace. The hostess said no " we are full tonight" . The tables by the fireplace remained empty the whole time we were in the... More

The Regency Hotel is a favorite of ours - we live right in town but spend at least one night a year for a romantic, fun and easy get away. The hotel, the Armory Lounge and Twenty Milk Street for dinner are all wonderful, but sunday brunch is something very special. They create a lovely, relaxed atmosphere with outstanding food... More
