We go to Milk & Honey for tapas. We are never disappointed. The variety is wide and we have never had a bad dish. On the weekends it gets crowded, so arriving early or after the evening rush is advised.

I still dream about the meal we had at Milk & Honey. We got the bacon wrapped dates drizzled with honey (called "Date with a Pig"), Beet Salad & Prosciutto bundles to split. I had the "Heat of Passion" cocktail, which was really well balanced and put together. The menu had a lot of variety and we would definitely return... More

Milk & Honey is a cozy down down Tapas restaurant. The Happy Hour lasts until 7 pm. There were about 7 tapas on the HH menu along with drink specials. Sangria was good with a cinnamon & clove flavor mixed with the fruit flavors and wine. Malbec was the HH wine special. M&H are known for showing old time films... More

We ate here during happy hour, mostly prices are a few $ less than the normal menu prices. So good if you're early and want to save a bit. All the tapas we tried were really good. As noted in other reviews, each item is a small portion, and that's great for sharing. Drinks were great as well, unique creations... More

I've been so looking forward to bringing my wife back to Milk & Honey. It's not like this is our first trip back since our first date. But, it's always been special. And, the conversation with the hostess gave me confidence that she would have a server come around to see us with the other two tables on the patio.... More

Great place for small plates! Try the bacon-wrapped dates and patatas bravas. Make a reservation - this place fills up fast!

Four of us went for dinner and sat inside. We did about seven or eight different small plates. Everything was excellent. Everyone loved the lamb sliders and we reordered them. Tried a few cocktails - again, everything was quite good and the ambiance is nice. We went at opening (5PM), but it filled up fast - by 6PM it was... More

We had a very good spicy cucumber mixed drink and the "Picada" cheese/crackers/meats was out of this world

4 of us went there for dinner. Sat outside on a beautiful night. Brussel sprout starter and cheese plate were very good. PB and J filet mignon sliders were different, not my style. Salmon and prawns were great
