This is an expensive upmarket restaurant so you expect excellent food and service, and we were not disappointed in these respects. Grilled fish was superb.

This was the first (and last) time I will take a table on the mezzanine, because frankly you lose most of the ambiance of the main restaurant.

Where they are falling down at the moment is in terms of recovering from the C19 constraints. Too much fuss about masks when not actually eating. An impossible-to-read Wine List which you have to scan and decipher on your 'phone. And a sadly reduced menu offering from pre-C19 days; the deserts were particularly sparse and in these circumstances it is not acceptable to have run out of one of the few main offerings !

They have plenty of custom now, so at well over £100ph there is little excuse for not investing a little more to produce a readable (disposable or wipeable) Wine List and to expand the menu to its former glory.

Overall an enjoyable evening, but they need to try a little harder before my next visit ! A final thought is that, although the staff are generally excellent wouldn't it be nice if they would employ a few Greeks !

Why you let people book at 2:30 when your kitchen closed at this time. And then a waiter comes with a complaint that “kitchen is waiting just for you”. Didn’t expect that from Milos. Not coming again

Been to the Miami one a few times. This was a different experience, although the waiters were extremely smiley and fun, the service did not match the price. Not one bit. They must be more attentive, present often for this kind for money. Table we had did not help either, and yes, the hostess did try to change our seating after us raising the concern, but the replacement wasn’t better. Our table was very very close to the wait station, with waiters walking into the chairs and cutlery noises too close by making it not the most upscale experience you would expect for a restaurant of this price. Once in Miami or NY, maybe we will try it again. But definitely not in London.

Great restaurant to experience. The staff were extraordinary to every request we made and were ready with immediate recommendations. The white classy environment was enjoyable, and the food was simply ideal and exquisite, delicious fish plates cooked to perfection. Looking forward to my next visit!!!

Our bill came to 600 pounds - we asked for another glass of cognac after we paid - I asked for the bill to pay for the 12 pounds - and was told it was covered - no need to pay. Then someone came and told me I had tinpot for it . I have been to Milos Montreal over 30 times, Milos New York 19 times, Miami South Beach 15 times - thankyou Milos for your gratitude (not!) supporting you in these difficult times. Shame on you.

We made the right choice to enjoy Sunday lunch at the Milos restaurant after such a long time in lock down..

Food was excellent!!!

Menu rather limited as only few fresh fish available. But I fad grilled mackerel , which I usually avoid, and it was truly fantastic.

If you are careful with your money, then do not go there.

I love this restaurant. The best freshest fish ever. HOWEVER recently there are a lot of fruit flies around! So much that we had to move table this week and even then there were flies!! They need to do something about it ASAP or it will stop us coming.

One of the worst.......

Truly terrible dining experience, shocking food, surly service and ludicrously expensive. Avoid.

There are 67 Michelin starred restaurants in London and it is blindingly obvious why this is not one of them. My wife and I had dinner there last night, tempted by the wet fish counter and the perceived ambiance.

We ordered Octopus, that was so over-grilled it had the texture of shoe leather and tasted burnt. No lemon wedge served with it, two mouthfuls were enough. Terrible.

We ordered grilled peppers, expecting succulent, skinned peppers drizzled in olive oil and Balsamic. What we got was a plate of partially cooked pepper quarters, all chargrilled but with the skins left on! Picking burnt skin out of your mouth is not a pleasant experience! They weren’t de-seeded properly either.

We were told the red snapper we chose would be grilled and filleted. It wasn’t. The light in the restaurant isn’t great so spotting fish bones is virtually impossible. Seriously, it was like eating a pincushion, one bone pierced my inside lip and was really painful.

Upon drawing these issues to the attention of the Manager, he proceeded into an argument with me at the table, hugely unpleasant and unprofessional. Clearly, the customer is always wrong at Milos, unless you’re an non-foodie lobster eater, which you could buy for half the price elsewhere.

Settling half the bill, we were still tucked up for £175, with just two glasses of wine and a courgette dish in addition to the above. Seriously, this place all show and no substance. At least somewhere like Novikov fleeces you properly; excellent ingredients cooked really well for eye watering cost. Milos doesn’t do anything well.

The food was excellent but front of house very poor.
No one helped to open the heavy front doors either from the outside or inside when I was struggling to open them.
Despite having booked in advance & there being ample availability visible on book a table, the female receptionist offered me probably the worst table in the restaurant one that’s between the service stations, cash till, at the back in the dark , next to the elevator. I refused to take it, the next one offered was also tucked at the back behind the bar which was also a poor table, finally I was offered an acceptable table.
When paying the bill, which was split with a friend, I was charged the correct amount, my friend was charged the full amount which we had to point out was incorrect.
I’ve been to Milos several times with my husband for lunch & dinner he works in the neighbourhood. the front of house service we experienced compared to when I’ve been with my husband was simply rubbish & insulting. I would not recommend Milos to any female friends of colleagues. If This was my first visit to the restaurant I would not ever consider returning for dinner after the experience at lunch.

Went here for an early business lunch. The place soon filled up but service remained very attentive throughout. Food was very fresh, well prepared and extremely tasty.

There was a minor slip-up taking our order - I ordered 'clam' and got 'lamb' but the lamb looked so appealing that I ate it anyway! Clearly they take any slip-up in service very seriously because because, without any prompting or complaint on our part, a complimentary extra course appeared on our table. This wasn't great for my waistline but otherwise the gesture was hugely appreciated.

Oh, and I left my work bag by my table, which was promptly retrieved by the staff and returned to me.

All in all, a lovely experience: great food, great atmosphere, super service and staff who clearly enjoy their work. I shall return.

This place certainly has the wow factor, very chic St James eaterie. The sharing plates were very good with a good selection to suit most, although they specialise in Seafood. Amazing staff who were very attentive but not overbearing, will definitely be back for a special occasion.

The food offers a bit of Greek sunshine in Central London. If you miss the flavours from Milos island, then this is the place to go.
