Very good but service a bit slow. Nice menu with a variety of things to enjoy. Extensive wine list. I had the MVK picnic with an outstanding white cheddar cheese among several cold meats and an interesting plum (?) jam. The potatoe bacon cream soup was just right too. Good flat bread and other bread but had to order separately.

Had another great meal at Mill Valley Kitchen. The restaurant consistently has good service and great food. All the choices clearly layout calories, salt, fat etc on the menu and they focus on farm fresh and healthy ingredients. The atmosphere is open and modern yet the noise level is reasonable and it is not hard to engage in conversation with... More

I would have licked my plate if it had been socially acceptable! The food was delicious. The service and ambiance were both excellent as well. Two thumbs up!

I consider this is a good special occasion place, as it is a little too pricey for me otherwise. The dining and bar area are very nice and not cramped. At 7:15 P.M. on a Saturday the first thing that struck me was how noisy it was. Neither of us could hear our server very well as she went over... More

I am gluten intolerant and eating out has always been a challenge for me; however, I can eat at Mill Valley Kitchen with no worries. The menu contains several gluten free options and the food is locally sourced, which supports the local community. From the very first bite to the last, the food is beyond excellent. From the greeter at... More

Mill Valley Kitchen has a really cool vibe and great for foodies. The menu isn't real deep, but the food is great. We've been here several times for work meetings and business lunches and the service was always good. Side note, I dislike cooked carrots, but they have a grilled carrots appetizers that is really awesome. Have to order it... More

Came here for lunch to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday off of recommendation of my wife's friend who works here nearby. Good things - nice ambience, really cool looking bar, good food. Here's a couple of things that I believe could be improved and I think I'll take a star of for each of those. One - the only entrees they... More

We went here with our voice teacher after a day of lessons. Nice spot but was a bit noisy for our needs. Food was good, the Arctic Char was very well prepared. Someplace we will try again in the future.

Dinner with business associates led us to Mill Valley Kitchen in West Minneapolis. What a great place. The menu is fluid based on season and what is available locally - with a lean toward health/vegan. However the options are wide for the carnivore as well! We wound up sampling over a dozen mixed plates of appetizers and flat breads, each... More
