If you read other reviews on this site, you will see that common threads among disappointed diners are the achingly slow pacing and spotty service at this fine dining restaurant. This is true. Having been served only three (of six) courses more than one hour and thirty minutes after ordering, we decided to call it quits and left the restaurant. When asked what the issue was with the unacceptably slow pacing, the server blamed the kitchen. He said that there were two parties of 8 people who'd been seated just before my partner and I had arrived, and their orders were causing a logjam in the kitchen.
One would think that the main reason a restaurant takes reservations is to ensure that the kitchen and the staff are able to provide excellent and consistent service to all diners, no matter how large or small the party and no matter what time they were seated. I explained this concept to the manager on our way out, but all she had to offer was a hollow apology and a reiteration that the large parties seated ahead of us were the cause of the delays. I told her that may have been the *reason* but that it was not an *excuse.*
While the food was passable, with the abundance of wonderful fine dining establishments in New Orleans, there is no excuse to waste your time on MiLa. Try Le Foret or August or Domenico - all literally steps away, far superior, and with no need for excuses...
