Was only priced fix menu with appetizers, meal and dessert included. Would be good to offer al a carte items too when don’t want all that.


Landed at GNV and decided cooking dinner was not in the cards, and what a good decision it was to come here. Excellent all around.


Always a great meal and service any time we come to Gainesville!! Thank you


Overall it was meh at best. There were communication issues amongst the staff & multiple tables were seated & waited on before anyone came to ours. The entrees were ok but nothing spectacular. To be honest we were still peckish after eating our entrees (Salmon & Scallops). The desserts were huge & the Tiramisu cake was quite good. The cocktails were good too. Just wish the menu was revamped as the choices are limited - especially the appetizers.


We were delighted with our time at Mildred's! We enjoyed great food and excellent service!!


Always an exceptional experience at Mildred’s!!


Great food and service. Especially like a good outside dining option.


Will not return.


Slow service and restaurant was empty.


Mildred's never disappoints. The menu is constantly changing, and everything is always flavorful and served in relatively generous portions. Cocktails are masterfully made, and the dessert case! The dessert case is unparalleled. The service is attentive and friendly, and I think it's a very reasonable price for a 3-course dinner. My SOLE complaint about Mildred's is that the inside could use a little sprucing up. It feels a little dreary; but we tend to sit outdoors anyway. Definitely a Gainesville gem and a favorite for dates.

Amazingly tasty lamb & pork burger. Have ordered it many times and thankfully has been consistently great. They also have outdoor seating which is important to some given the current COVID-19 environment.


Went for lunch and the food was just OK. I ordered a Cesar salad to go for my husband, and it was absolutely disappointing. Croutons tasted terrible, and the dressing lacked flavor. Didn't taste like Cesar salad at all. Staff was nice, but the place is very pricey for food that is not so good.

It was our first time but absolutely won’t be our last!! Food was incredible and our waitress was kind and attentive! I think my husband and I found our new favorite date night spot!


Personable, caring service and great place to enjoy a safe lunch.
