My husband and I had a date night here. It’s a great place. We had drinks at the bar and then were seated in the dining area for dinner. The service and food were amazing. We were a little disappointed at how loud and bright it was. It used to be a cozy little place but they e opened it up so it’s not so private now. Still a great place though.

Enjoyed Milestones in Whitby again and had a very good time. The food was good, not great, but it was flavourful and well presented. The service was superb, the front of the house was welcoming and positive, our server was fantastic, had a detailed understanding of the menu and all the dishes, and was super attentive when we needed her and left us alone otherwise. My only complaint would be the automated gratuity options with the electronic payment module starting at 18% and going as high as 30%; we have minimum wage controls in Canada, gratuities have to die.

I recommend Milestones in Whitby.

Was not aware of the noise level when l made the booking. Meeting folks from out of town. Not a great place to socialize unless you’re a teen or used to yelling.
Sorry but none of us would recommend Milestones or would we come back.

Would have been a 3 star but the waitress we had went above and beyond to make it a 4 star. The prime rib wasn’t done and was rare to blue and was ordered med rare. Ate around outside but left the middle. Just told the waitress after it was too rare on the inside. She offered to get a new cut but i was ok. She then comped the meal which wasn’t needed but appreciated. Her tip was one of the largest I have given and ensured me to return.

We had a reservation at 615. We arrived early and waited in the bar and had a drink. The bar tender was extremely friendly and offered a taster of the wine I haven’t tried before. We were brought to the table by the hostess who was also very friendly. We were sat in a booth as requested. I don’t remember our servers name but she was absolutely lovely. Lots of smiles, easy conversation and recommended the best appetizers and entrees. The food is simply amazing. We had the Shrimp Wham Bam for an appetizer and I had the Crispy chicken chilli bowl, husband had the Brie and mushroom burger. This was our second visit here and again we received amazing service and food. I used to work in the restaurant industry myself as a hostess at The Keg for a couple years and I was so impressed with how the staff seemed so helpful to each other! A random server saw our drinks were getting low after he had dropped off food at a close by table and he offered us refills. Another server saw our empty plates and cleared them off the table. Great teamwork here! Thank you all for a great night out! We will definitely return.

Myself and one other person attend had the rustic chicken sandwhich it was terrible. The smallest piece of wet, rubbery chicken, the mayo was non existent and the bread was so dry. Others had different meals and only one person out of 6 enjoyed their meal. For the price it was extremely disappointing. We also felt rushed out towards the end of our visit which is a huge turn off.

Normally the service is exceptional, however this time around, service was very slow. There were a few people waiting for their bill and their food and looked quite annoyed. Sadly we had the same experience. The food was great and we had a great time. May have been a one off! Still and enjoyable visit.

Everything was just perfect. If I have one feedback, it will be that the music was way too loud. We could not hear our waiter and need to speak very loud to each other to understand what we were saying. Not really a romantic dinner.

I made reservations at the Milestones Whitby location on a Sunday night. Having been there before on a few occasions, it seemed like a fairly safe bet as a casual restaurant with an equally easy going menu for my retirement aged parents and late teenaged kids. I was a little disappointed on the table arrangement when we were escorted in; I had made the reservations days in advance for only six people but was met with three separate tables for two pushed together, which I'm normally fine with but there were two square tables and one round table creating an awkward dynamic. It reminded me of a holiday dinner at my grandparents house, using any furniture available that could be transformed into a table or seating. To their credit, the tables were properly set and were very clean. The ambiance was rustic modern, having many interesting lighting treatments to look at and plenty of dark wood finishes. The lighting was comfortably dim providing a sense of privacy but not so low that reading the menu would have been difficult. The noise level was at a respectable level, the dining room seemed to be almost full for the most part so the acoustics are well set. I do like the fact that there aren't any tv monitors in the dining area; if I wanted to watch sports, I'd go to a sport's bar or stay home. The menu wasn't overly complicated, having a fairly nice selection within each category. The pricing of the entree's was inline with the quality of the food however, I felt that the starters were overpriced as the descriptions of each said they were suitable for two people. I've been to many comparable restaurants in downtown Toronto where the "sharables" were suited for four or five diners for the same rate. I personally had the Thai Red Curry Bowl- the presentation was impressive; vibrant vegetables cooked al dente (as they should be) but I found that it lacked spice for a Thai dish and the curry flavor was weak. The chicken, however, was juicy and proportioned well. 3.2/5

Love the food however the restaurant lacks the ambiance the The Keg has. This restaurant is very open concept with low walls on the booths so it can get quite noisy.
Also there were quite a few flies buzzing around. They did replace my drink when I noticed a fly had drowned in it
