This was our 4th visit but this time for brunch with our adult children. Awesome food and servers teamed up and did a great job.

Didn’t have coffee to have with dessert. Mashed potatoes were very dry but other than that the food and service was quite good. A little disappointed that americano wasn’t comped as promised despite being out of coffee that was originally requested.

We have been going to this location since they opened but this experience wasn't up to milestone standards.we requested Erin when we reserved but were told on arrival that her section was full.what is the point of requesting someone if no effort is made to accommodate the request?we ended up in a cold booth by the door.i realize that it was valentines day but better care of long time customers should be observed.

Thanks

Service was not great at all. We were seated and the Resturant called to tell us our table was ready after we were seated. Our orders were mixed up and the waitress did not want to honour our CAA discount.

Arrived slightly early for our reservation. Seated quickly. Server was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. I was pleasantly surprised when our appetizers arrived super fast, hot and tasty. The main meal was served right on time and was equally as good. Will return.

The location is convenient and both the service and the food were pretty good. The noise was a bit much but that could be because we were centre and near the kitchen. While the food was good it’s a touch on the pricey side for what you get.

Our waiter unfortunately had a huge hockey party to deal with as well as other booths like ours. We had made a reservation and were really looking forward to our date night out as they are rare. We were ignored, never offered another beverage, my food was downright cold and dissapointing. We were there in July of 2018 and had a stellar night; this was a 2/10 at best and we'll never go back.

Dinner and service were excellent. Took a while to get seated due to larger group. Called earlier for reservations and I was told they do not do reservations on the weekends. Then I went online and booked through open tables and I was able to make a reservation which they honored. Weird!

Every time I dine at Milestones, it never disappoints. I made a reservation online for my friend and I on Friday evening. Upon our arrival, the hostess sat us within seconds - it was amazing. Our server was also great, and very friendly - good service is key! The food was tasty, and was delivered to our table at a reasonable waiting time. Keep up the great work!

Our hot starters (cauliflower bites) arrived cold, bland and just thrown on a plate with soggy lettuce.
Our main courses (fish tacos and Mediterranean chicken) very bland and tasteless.
I expected better from Milestones...high prices for very poor food!

It was ok. Waitress was polite. Food was average. No water was served. No saucers. Scene points are collected and I wasn't asked for my scene card-found out after. This was my second visit and the first time I waited 1hr and 36minutes for food to be served. Won't be going back.

I was surprised to find this restaurant fairly quiet for brunch on New Year's Day, not disappointed though, as I expected we'd get a less 'rushed' service. We were seated promptly and our waiter arrived without too much of a wait. My husband and I both ordered the eggs benny special, which included mimosas and fresh fruit. The drinks and food arrived without too much of a wait, but not the fruit - they had forgotten that our order included that, so they did eventually return with it.

Service was distracted - our waiter usually said a couple of words to us as he rushed past our table pointing his hand at us 'are you guys stlll......' I think the last word was OK as he hurried by, and that was the nature of most of his interactions with us. It would have been nice for him to have stopped and pretended that he cared how our meal was or if we wanted anything else, but all in all the service was lacking.

The food itself was OK - the friend potatoes were actually delicious, but the hero of the meal should have been the prime ribs eggs benny, but the prime rib was well done and there was a strong taste of vinegar coming through, unsure what from. Even the coffee at the end of the meal was 'meh'.

My milestones experience is usually far more impressive and this chain has become our 'go to' venue whenever we want to treat ourselves. The food is usually faultless and so is the service, but this time we started our new year on a down note. I will return hoping that this was just a blip.

I have a garlic allergy so our waiter was amazing in speaking to the kitchen and offering up some good choices. Garlic is literally in everything and so many restaurants marinate their meats in it so even though the choices were limited I was able to pick a lunch menu that ended up being fantastic!

Just a thought to the manager it would be great to have unmarinated options available for those who have allergies!

The food we had was very good but we were not thrilled with the menu options. There were many options but many items had spices or some ingredient we weren't fussy about. That is just personal taste of course. Service was good. Very loud, which suits some people but not me.

Food was good, the only issue was with our server that didn't come to see us for a good 20mins when we were ready to pay our bill because she had a bigger table and guessing hoping for a "bigger" from them.
