Great dinner and was so good we had to run back for an amazing breakfast before our flight. Crab cakes?! Yum, in Benedict or scramble form!?.

The guidebook said this has a New York flavor and I agree, but New York in the 50's before things got so crowded and they started squeezing too many tables into small spaces. Milo's is spacious with high ceilings and minimalist decor. We ate an early dinner here, so there weren't many customers, one of them reading a book at the bar. I had two different draft beers (just curious) and a vegetarian plate. All quite delicious. Plus a bite of my companion's fish & chips and spinach salad. Ditto. Especially liked the dressing on the salad. Would love to try their crab cakes. And the catch of the day. This is definitely a place I would eat regularly if only it were in my home town.

We ate here twice in two days during a recent visit to Portland. This is a well-run bistro that serves good (sometimes exceptionally good, sometimes average) food, with friendly service. One of the best options in the neighborhood.

We went there for dinner at the recommendation of other travelers to Portland as it was just a few blocks from our Bed and Breakfast. It doesn't look like it will be as special as it is. The service was quite good and knowledgeable- and food was REALLY good. We had the Hungarian Mushroom soup which was delicious. Others in the party had burgers and salads for main course and they were really quite tasty and ample. It was a very pleasant surprise- very reasonable, very low key, and very yummy.

Finding ourselves in Portland after 23 hours of travel the previous day,when we got up we decided this was the place for a nice breakfast before returning to our home on the coast. It is a very busy place but our jet lagged bodies woke us early so we got there well before nine. On a Sunday morning people were waiting by 9:15. I had salmon hash and eggs. My wife had an omelette with bacon and two kinds of sausage which was too big to finish. Wife enjoyed good iced tea and I had good coffee both of which were unobtainable on Holland America Lines where we were the previous day. Service was also very good. The food came promptly and was hot which we had also missed the previous 24 days. This is a great place. We hadn't been there for years but there has been no loss in food quality or service.
