We went to Milo's after a long weekend day in the city, looking for a place to just rest our feet and get a decent dinner. We had hit up several places prior to arriving at Milo's and found either 2 hour waits or menus that were incredibly complex and/or expensive. We wanted simple but quality food at a reasonable price and found it-without a wait-at Milo's.
The menu was fairly extensive, with options from pasta to sandwiches and several vegetarian selections. Several adventurous, unique creations on the menu, but still accessible and unpretentious. Price points ranged from $9.50 for a burger to $19.95 for filet mignon. We had seen similar offerings on several other menus that cost 20-75% more. I went with a hot vegetarian sandwich and my fiance had a burger and both were fresh, tasty and more than large enough to take home leftovers. My fiance enjoyed his burger and thought the cheese options were unique: bleu, cheddar or gorgonzola. The fries that came with both were clearly hand cut and very good-thin, just as I like them!
The place has a comfortable, yet upscale feel, with an open grill area manned by chefs in white coats. There's a counter with bar stools and also tables covered in nice linens. It's a mix of casual and elegant and it's done quite well, so that you'd feel equally at home walking in wearing jeans or a dress. Our server was friendly and quick, though we waited about 10 minutes after being seated for her to acknowledge our presence-she was busy with a large party. Fortunately, a runner got us menus, water and silverware. To make up for the initial snub, she brought us complimentary sourdough (comes free with large plate meals, but we both only ordered sandwiches) and the soup of the day, which totally worked! Drinks were always kept full and the food arrived quickly.
Milo's provides delicious, creative food that is still casual and reasonably priced in a comfortable, eclectic environment. When you're not looking for fast food but not looking to make reservations 3 weeks in advance and pay through the nose, Milo's in an excellent choice.
