Hadn't been back to Milk & Honey for years, but glad we did! Out of three dishes we ordered two were excellent and one was very good. So not a dud in the whole array. The most outstanding was a new addition to the menu...More

Love this restaurant! We had a great time and everything was wonderful. Our server was very attentive and friendly, the food was delicious and came out very quickly and the atmosphere is awesome - dark and moody. But why do they play cartoons? I can't...More

All the food was very tasty. We especially loved the pulled pork. Very dark lighting is my only negative. Not touristy but more locals. Good prices, especially during happy hour which I think is till 6pm.

The establishment appeared to be a typical city bar. The food, though, was excellent and our waitress was very affable and efficient. No complaints. As tourists, we are less likely to return or recommend. If you like tapas, try it, you'll like it.

The several small plates my husband and I tried were fine, but not memorable in terms of flavor compared to other tapas restaurants we’ve visited. The whipped cauliflower was our favorite; light yet creamy like mashed potatoes. The Brussels sprouts was the one we wished...More
