OK for what it is, a bit cookie cutter as it is a chain restaurant. Awful beer selection in a city where craft beer rules. We had a great server though, lots of fun. My spicy thai bowl needed more spice, and some more peanut sauce would have helped. Maybe I should have asked for more, but they did bring Siracha sauce.

Well, we’ve had a number of very disappointing visits to this location. However, on this visit, the service was excellent. We had a waiter I hadn’t seen before. Started going to Milestone’s when it first opened on Denman and it’s only my memory of good food and service back then that’s kept me coming. My experience of the servers in this location is that they start out fine but have no follow through.

The service was abysmal. It started out well enough but deteriorated rapidly. There was a complete lack of follow up by the server. We had to ask other staff to get things that were ordered but never delivered. Most disappointing.

We came hungry and really wanted a good steak and for $28 dollars we expected a perfect sirloin but it came to the table not even warm. The meat was cold and tough. I can barely chew through it. We tried looking for the server but he was not in sight. He was charming and pleasant but the food was not up to par. We’ve had amazing steaks at Milestones before but this time, it was a miss.

Milestones service exceeded our expectations. They took longer with our meals than typical. However, we were busy chatting so we didn’t notice. Without any complaints they apologized for the delay and did not charge us at all! We appreciated their service and will definitely go back.

My steak came out a little on the burnt, very dry side but when Matt came to check on us, I mentioned it to him & he offered to get my whole plate re-done. the mashed potatoes & veggies were fine so I only wanted the steak re-done. when it came out again it was perfectly juicy & delicious! calarami appy was so tender & the Showstopper dessert, you have to have it... Matt was very friendly and gracious, lovely gentlemen and an total asset to Milestones! thank you so much!

Seated right away with reservation. Waitress was attentive and patient (group of 7). Food was okay. (My friend and I ordered the same item but mine had a lot of sauce whereas hers barely had any). Calamari was also less crunchier than expected. Yam Frites were loved by my whole table though. Bellinis were also loved. When our server got off work, no other server replaced her, so it was hard getting things done. Overall though, would come again.

Did not bother to do the special request I asked for during the reservation. It was supposed to be a surprise for my s/o. Server didn’t seem happy serving us, didn’t deserve the tip I left. Cauliflower bites were cold.

Great food, great service, great ambiance!
My friend had a small suggestion with her food, and when she addressed it with the server he got the manager over right away, even though she insisted it wasn't a big deal! Great that they got on it right away, although it was a small matter.

Great meal and fantastic service. We came here for New Years eve with our 3 kids and were very well treated right from being seated through dinner service. The food was very good and the kids were all happy. The noise level in here is good and I don't need to worry about my kids being too quiet! Thanks for a lovely evening.

Excellent service, friendly, organized, good food. We asked for "special" things such as separating the chicken for someone who was a vegan and giving it to another person at the table and it was done without a glitch.

The acoustics in this restaurant leave much to be desired. Very hard to carry on a conversation with anyone who isn't right beside you. The waiter was attentive (so there was no problem there) and the food was good (I had the Salmon). I like the fact they served their Moscow Mules in a copper mug :D

Won’t return. Specified it was a special occasion and clearly no one bothered to read or care. Stuck in crappy location near door.

Went because we received a gift card. Wanted to also use $10 in coupons that we were told -when we were asked to make a $20 donation last year - that they’d be good for the year.

Food was terrible. Way way way overdone with sauce. Great if you’ve lost your tastebuds though.

Everything about this experience was horrible.

I had a Steak and Egg Benedict breakfast there long time ago. My husband and I made a special trip with kids and friend to visit for brunch again. Now, they changed it to a Prime Rib Hash with poached eggs. We tried that... It was VERY DISAPPOINTING... It was so salty, so brownish... burnish in a pile with supposed to be medium poached eggs (but they were soft) and a hard bread stick. I could barely see my "prime rib steak" in the HASH pile. It would be nice to see a little green or fruit on the plate... Also, it would be nice to actually see the Prime Rib slices if customers were paying almost $20 for this dish. I am not asking for a 6oz steak, but try it yourself and tell me it's not too salty. I hope to see a NEW BRUNCH MENU soon. Thank you.

Ordered the same thing as my friend. Seafood pasta. Her's came first and was a HUGE heaping bowl. Mine didn't come for a time at all, so I had to ask for it. The waiter looked a little taken aback and went off in search of it.
He brought it, but it was a very small portion compared to my friend's, was mostly just sauce with a few broken pieces of spaghetti mixed in. It was very odd.

I realized that I think they made a mistake, put BOTH orders in my friends bowl, then panicked when they realized their mistake, and scraped the bottom of the pan for what they gave me. My meal was exactly what is left at the bottom of a pasta dish once most of it is gone. Mostly just sauce and some small broken bits of pasta.

I said nothing, but couldn't eat much of it, despite the small serving, as it was so very rich with no pasta to break up the sauce. I was wasn't impressed though.

They messed up our order several times. It wasn’t busy but for some reason it took forever to get our drink and food order. They ended up comping 2 of our meals due to errors.
At least the server recognize the multiple errors and compete the meals prior to us saying anything.
