It was a very enjoyable evening. Food was good. Service was good. We were seated quite promptly and were given a table in our requested part of the restaurant.

My birthday but you would have know it,our waitress was fine at first but seemed to be a bit behind schedule in refilling our drinks. Even though it was mentioned that I was celebrating a birthday no sincere effort was put towards that. Perhaps Milestones doesn’t go down the complimentary birthday cake or drink route, I don’t know it was strange. My trip to the ladies room had me rocked by the fact that toilet was unhinged from its screws. My husband was left high and dry for his second drink as well.

I love to order drinks, the Mediterranean goat cheese platter and spinach and artichoke dip. The chips and dip were done however the goat cheese platter was very cold. The bread tasted old and cold, the garlic was good, and we didn’t really receive as much ham as usual. I was disappointed with the quality of this appetizer during this visit.

The server was friendly and the food was great. However, we were a party of 13 people and we were there for 3.5 hours. We were not in a rush what so ever and enjoyed our time. However, waiting 30 min for a drink and 40 min for a spinach dip is a bit to long and some of us were getting annoyed.

I am a HUGE fan of the Butternut Squash ravioli, but sadly last night it was burnt (the pasta was actually charred and hard) and cold.. strange combo I know but sadly it was not up to the delicious standard it normally is. Otherwise the night would have been 5 ⭐️ across the board! Thank you for the complimentary Bday cheese cake though, it was delicious😋

Everything was very tasty. The servers were very friendly. The only negative is that the appetizers portions seem to be very small for the price you pay. The regular meal portions were good. Thank you for a nice evening.

Great. Our server Meghan was very prompt and professional. I noted her knack to maintain eye contact as she explained things. Excellent experience. The hostess station (greeters) could be fine tuned. Too many bodies milling about with minimal results in movement of guest.

Upon make a reservation I requested 2 tables as we were celebrating a birthday. Once I arrived they acknowledged my request however upon seating us we were all seated together. I asked the server to move us to move us adults to another table and they easily did but did not communicate this to our server so she was not aware that there were to tables under one bill. Minor it all worked out but s little communication needs to be tweaked between staff to ensure better customer service.

I have been here twice in the last 2 weeks and both times the food came out barely warm and seemed to have been sitting for a while prior to being served to us, as it was quite dry. The food took a very long time to get to us and when it did, both times someone I was with had to send their food back. Our waitress was nice to begin with, but gradually stopped coming by over the course of the night and seemed to have pawned us off to other servers. The food and service quality seems to have gone down, I used to really enjoy coming here.

Ordered flatbread brucheta and Asian Chicken bites for starters which were both amazing. However my main, Spicy Thai Basil Noodles, was one of the most awful dishes I have ever eaten at a restaurant. I was there with my family, and my mother also ordered the same dish and was extremely disappointed. It was coated in sauce, which would have been okay if it wasn't for the taste - it was honestly just a a giant brown bowl of mush. Thankfully there was chicken and shrimp in the bowl which I picked out for my dinner. I can't say enough terrible things about this dish, it was really that bad. I would suggest making it either more authentic Asian and focus more on the spices/sauce, or just take it off the menu. However, my husband got the burger which he really enjoyed, the ambiance was enjoyable and service was great. Honestly the experience itself was great minus the main entree.

Just such a disappointment. The place wasn’t that busy. And there was only three people at our table but It was a MASSIVE effort to get anything from our server. I dropped a napkin and asked for another one and asked again and again and it never materialized. No matter what we asked for, like “can I get a glass of water please”- these request took a crazy amount of time, extra request and reminders to actually come to fruition. Eventually we just gave up and after waiting a half hour for our bill (we had requested it twice from the server) we just paid and left. It was painful dealing with her..unless you have a few spare hours- done go to this milestones.

Disappointed. I reserved a table for six for my husband’s birthday. There were 4 adult and two children. My husband had the seafood pasta. The only seafood he could find was 3 shrimp. Hardly seafood for that price. My granddaughter ordered a grill cheese sandwich with fries. When her meal arrived it wasn’t grilled, one side looked as if it was just toasted lightly. The cheese was hard and the fries were cold. Needless to say she wouldn’t eat it. Our meal took 45 minutes before it arrived. I ordered a glass of wine and didn’t get it until I had to flag another server to remind our server she hadn’t delivered the glass of wine to the table.

Went for dinner Friday January 26 7:30pm. We had a reservation for 7:30 and arrived 7:35. Hostess rudely said we have to wait 10 minutes. We asked why she said we were late and there were other reservations ahead of us. We went to the washroom for 5 minutes asked if our table was ready she said we didn’t check in with her. 5 minutes is rather harsh also they had my phone number could have called they even called that afternoon to confirm we were coming I said yes. Everything else was fine but they young hostess with long brown hair was very rude, the other hostess who seated us was fine. I hope you talk to the hostess and maybe adjust your reservation rules. Every other restaurant I’ve been to will hold reservations for 10 minutes. Everything else was ok.

Booked a table for 14. Table wasn’t ready when we arrived a few mins early but they took us in quickly. The server was outstanding considering there were 14 of us and some quite demanding. Appies and good were great. Thanks for a great night out to celebrate with work friends.

the food is always good at Milestones however the place was not that busy and the service was slow. The meal portions seem to be getting smaller and smaller every time we good, but again the food is very good. I like that they do a superfood and go with the trend is customers are trying to be healthy

I used to love Milestones and went for my birthday this year for our family dinner so I could enjoy a favorite meal. I discovered after ordering it that the recipe had changed and it wasn't the same anymore. I get that things change, it was just disappointing. The service was friendly and apologetic but not up to standard. Wrong items were brought and some items we had to wait quite awhile for (brought teapots but waited 10 minutes for the mugs to drink it out of). My mother had an odd piece of something in her dessert that didn't belong there. Turned out it was probably cross contamination from another dessert, but ew. I wouldn't avoid the restaurant by any means, but it wasn't the same Milestones I remember. Hoping it was a one off and not a common occurrence.

Food as such was acceptable to good.
Unfortunately, the main course arrived within 2 minutes of the server brining the salad and I had to tell the server that I do not care to eat the starter and main course simultaneously.
The server took the main course back to keep it warm, but that did not help the quality of the prime rib main course when it was brought back 10 minutes later.
At that time the horse radish was missing.

All small, but annnoying, little mistakes that could have been easily avoided with more attentive service.

Reserved a week in advance and still had to wait 20 minutes for a table, despite the restaurant being only about 1/3 full with zero wait (arrived 4:45p).

Food is mostly great here - on many occassions, they run out of Prime Rib, so if you want that, arrive earlier. Prime Rib here is excellent.

Good value - our bill for a Party of 9 was less than we paid for 5 at the Keg.

All appetizers (Shrimp, Chicken, Spinich Dip, Cauliflower) were great as were many of Mains. Chicken Parmeson looked great.

On noticable failure - two of our party ordered Sirloin and both steaks were way overcooked and gristly. We took them home and fed them to the dog.

We went on Christmas Eve and they were really busy. So busy in fact, that we waited at least 25 minutes before someone would take our order. Each time we needed our waiter was a long tedious Where’s Waldo game.
The portions were a bit on the smaller end but overall the taste was good. Not sure we will return especially when it’s busy.
