Milestones Grill + Bar - Coquitlam
It's the passion in our recipes that makes a visit to Milestones truly unforgettable. Whether you come for a favourite meal or love trying new and trendy dishes, Milestones is all about great food without the pretension. We're an impromptu meeting place for friends and a cozy spot for date nights. We're familiar and friendly, but always on the cutting-edge. We're nights to remember and remarkable flavours to savour. That's how we set the table at Milestones. Be part of the story...
I always thought of Milestones as a fun place to go, but was often reluctant because of the "no reservation" policy. With a reservation, it makes the experience soooooooo much better. We could eat when we wanted to, instead of having to come early to avoid the rush or come late so the kids would be gone.
Both date nights within a week we have received "perfect" service. I was a server in fancy Hotels and upper scale restaurants for about 20 years and love the service here. They do every step, even refilling waters which can be hard to voluntarily get. They always quality check system the appropriate time and make sure our my boyfriend's coffee is topped up and offer another virgin could cocktail to myself. They do the skip any of the service musts and I really appreciate that, as many restaurants servers often miss the quality check/&/or my boyfriend's coffee. Greeting is prompt and beverage delivery is within the desired three minute guidelines. The food portions are very generous, the chicken parmesan my boyfriend Chris actually had packed up which is very impressive, as that is the first time I've seen him get full enough to not clean his plate up. Thank you Milestones!
Steak was good. But late serve and little noisy.
Try to serve well but need more calm.
Ordered a kid’s menu and the pasta was a joke, it was just the cooked pasta with a bit of cheese and barely enough seasoning or sauce. Our Nan ordered a rare steak which came out very cold so had to send it back and they actually used the same steak to ‘heat it up’ and it came back cold again. The manager came by didn’t really apologize and there was actually nothing to compensate for all the trouble. Never going back, I now remember why it took me over 10 years to go back again and definitely won’t be going back ever
We have been to this restaurant many times., so no real surprises . The service was good. ambience is the same which we like. On the food, my wife had the mediteranean chicken which she really liked. she has had the prior and sat it is very good. I had the spicy Thai basil chicken bowl. this time I found the noodle over cooked and mushy. It tasted like every thing was prepared way in advance thrown together an heated on request. I know that is probably not the case but that was the impression on eating it was okay taste wise , not very spicy , but reminded Me of a stirfry I would reheat the second day. Still good but no wow.
The other item that may prevent me from returning was the cost, this is not fine dining, classy upscale perhaps, one appy calamari, two entree's one glass of wine 8 oz, one martini, one regular coffee. 100 before tip. wow!
My experience has always been great at M historically. The food prep definitely could have been better at this location
Every time me I go to milestones, something goes wrong. As always, the service was slow though this time was much worse than others despite it being a relatively quiet Tuesday night. Me and my friend ordered drinks, and the server forgot them until we reminded him about it the next time we saw him, which was a half hour later! Dairy free and vegetarian food options were limited which was a disappointment. My friend, who also needs to eat dairy-free, was offered free dessert for her birthday but the only dairy-free dessert was a fruit plate which ended up being incredibly small.
Milestones is always a good choice for brunch. Food is tasty, choice is varied.
I ordered a salad for my main, not a lot of vegetable and definitely over prized and salad dressing was lacking. Very disappointed.
Fantastic service and food.
I easily made the reservation online for 16, however, we had 20 arrive and were able to add to our table with no problem. Only one meal seemed to take extra time for serving, and the staff were attentive to our needs, refilling drinks and answering questions. I also appreciated that we did not seem to be disturbing other patrons as no one else was seated close by. This was a great venue for my goodbye lunch!
Good range of appys, good service and good prices for casual dining
Very disappointed in my meal, order a $25 "signature dish". It was a hard piece of white fish on rice. Over cooked no flavor and over priced. Kids sliders were a burger patty ripped in pieces. Loud swearing patron sitting behind kids. Asked management to take care of it but situation didn't change. Server was mediocre, asked if we need more drinks, but never once inquired about or meals! Will not go back!!
Milestones is stale. Boring menus. Overpriced and missing a vibrant feeling. Same milestones from 20 years ago. Needs an overhaul.
Service was great, our server was prompt, super-friendly and checked in several times. Food was very good, portions were generous. They have a creative cocktail menu with some very refreshing choices for a hot day.
Only thing was we dined out because it was a hot day and wanted to go to an air conditioned restaurant, and while the waiting area was very refreshing, the dining room was quite warm.
Huge parking lot, so no problem with finding a spot.
