Respond to Review of Millennium
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: We finally made it back to Millennium after a long absence. This time we came with Dirk's non-vegan brother who wanted to try fancy vegan food. We had a reservation for 5:30pm on a Sunday night when they opened, so we were seated within a few minutes. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We all ordered cocktails to start: Key West, Ginger Jim and a regular martini. We shared the seared asparagus and roasted beets. The asparagus was a bit too spicy for me, but the guys loved it. And the beets were perfectly roasted with a fabulous balsamic reduction sauce. Dirk also had a spinach salad with tea smoked tofu that was divine. For entrees, Dirk's brother had the portobello mushroom dish while we shared the mustard seed and black pepper smoked tempeh with barley risotto as well as the brick pastry roulade with seitan. Everything was wonderful, especially the tempeh and barley risotto which were beyond fabulous. We shared 3 desserts of tapioca pudding with almond cherry ice cream, the chocolate midnight almond cake and the mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich. We each had a different favorite although they were all great. Dirk and I also each got a nocturne dessert martini which is an espresso one. So yummy. Dirk's brother got a dessert wine and coffee. Overall, everything was absolutely excellent. This was our best experience yet at Millennium. We've had to wait before, been in a cramped table location or just had an okay dish, but it was just perfect this time, so we highly look forward to the next time. Updated from previous review on Wednesday July 08, 2009 Whenever we are back in the Bay Area visiting my boyfriend's parents, we try to come here. It's definitely the nicest vegan restaurant. Lovely space and atmosphere - great for special occasions. The drinks at the bar are fantastic. All the food has been amazing, yet I still prefer Madeleine's back home in LA. Just personal preference. I would highly recommend coming here if you are in the City.
