Fabulous dinner, California salad with chicken breast, and a roasted beet/quinoa etc concoction with salmon. Both hit it out of the park. Perfect evening bar noise level. VERY noisy establishment with music and crowd noise blasting you upon opening the door to enter. Server (Mikaela) was excellent. Very attentive without being overly present. Thursday evening dinner.

We have been going to Milestones for years but this last visit was very disappointing. We were there for my husbands birthday and our anniversary. You can no longer have a nice romantic meal at Milestones the noise level is crazy. We waited over an hour for our food which to me is not acceptable. Our waitress was lovely and very apologetic we know it was not her fault. All of the staff were super nice which is one of the reasons we love Milestones. There was a person in the kitchen who kept shouting when orders were ready, it became extremely irritating having to listen to her. The menu has lost some of our favourite dishes over time and the prices have gone up and up. After this last experience I think we may start looking for another restaurant to go to to celebrate our special occasions.

Always treats us great! Comes over to say hello to the girls and they always go over my dietary allergies options with me. My fav location by far!!! Great staff it’s why we go back to that location.

Went there two days due to business meetings and on both days they took over 1 hour to bring out the food. They didn't even apologize or give us a heads-up that their ordering system was not working. Very poor service.

Service was slow. . The restaurant was cold. The coffee was not hot and not offered any milk or cream. Service was bad even though not many people in the restaurant. It was a disappointing experience. Is it the at hard to serve hot coffee?

Put in the bar for brunch and had to ask twice for the booming music to be turned down. Bacon was cold and had to wait a while for new bacon. No jam provided for toast and by the time I got some toast was cold

Service was extremely slow and waitress didn’t check in enough with us. Not only that she didn’t ask everyone in our party of 5 if they wanted any drink refills. She chose to ask only one person when it was obvious that others would have ordered more drinks including water. Very annoyed with the service level.

Service and food good. Restaurant has been renovated since we visited last time - looks good, but is not conducive to a quiet date night anymore. Now it a very open and loud (relaxed carpet with hard floor, lighting is brighter) - it’s nice, but not what we were looking for in a special date night.

Service was fine. Food was subpar, took very long to come out, once it arrived quality and taste were not good. Too bad because it had been a while since I had been to Milestones, so I brought a client there for lunch. I won't be back for a while...

We were seated on the patio immediately around 4pm. We waited 10-15 mins for our unapologetic server to meet us and take our orders. We gave our entire order which included drinks, a shared appetizer and 4 main courses.
The drinks and appetizers took between 10-15 mins to be delivered to our tables. Our main course took atleast 20-25 mins.
I will not be returning to the Milestones Dixon location nor will I recommend. I suggest a stronger management team to ensure service is superb and cleanliness is maintained. The patio tables appears to need a good scrub vs wiping with a wet cloth. Debris on the floor should be picked up throughout the day. Yes, it’s the end of summer but the patio is open so I think the standard of cleanliness should be a top priority.

These guys are amazing at this location. They always go over and beyond to make sure our evening is perfect. From taking care of me with Celiac Disease to playing with daughters and calling them by name! One of our fav restaurants for sure!

The food was tasty but the salad I ordered cost about $21.00 and was possibly the smallest main course salad I have ever been served in any restaurant. None of us could believe how small it was.

We went to Milestones for a Mother's Day brunch and were promptly seated. Unfortunately the table that we were seated at was not assigned wait staff. After a long period of watching other tables being served a waiter approached us and apologized for the wait, explaining that he had just been assigned the table. After we had a waiter the service was good, but the long wait should never have happened.

I have been to this location on numerous previous times and always enjoyed but our visit on May 6th was disappointing. We had a reservation that had been made over 2 weeks in advance. While it was quiet inside the restaurant where we were, outside was very busy as it was the first nice day this spring that you could sit outside. Our orders were simple for a group of 6 - 4 main salads, one burger and a soup and taco appetizer. After over 30 minutes, we asked our server when the food was coming - she didn't even realize it had taken a long time and said if it takes a long time, I will get on the kitchen staff. But it still took at least 10 more minutes! We shouldn't have to wait over 40 minutes for our food! And then the hamburger was overdone! How long does it take to put pre-made salads in a dish?

Poor service- disinterested server, forgot to place order, no interest in ensuring all ok, replenishing water etc
Mediterranean Chicken came with tough, stringy, cold cooked spinach. When we tried to explain the issue, we were told by the manager that there is only one chef for all the Milestones chain and he made sure it was all to specification. She then threw coupons for free appetizers on our next visit onto the table and walked away. We won't be going back!
A simple apology have made a huge difference!

I would recommend Milestones Bar +Grill. The food was great. However the policy needs to change regarding how much Scene points you could redeem to pay for your meal. Also it was my fiance's birthday and the they didn't throw in a free dessert or something. Also when I contacted the guest services pertaining to the issue, I just got an explanation. There was no apology or effort from Milestones to have us come back so they could make it up to us. That's all I have to say.

Table of 6, we ordered 3 appetizers and 6 meals. Our appetizers never came, when our main course arrived we questioned the wait staff. Our waiter asked if we still wanted, not at that point, considering our meals were being served. 2 of the 6 meals were undercooked, and 2 meals were missing items. We advised our waiter of all the issues. He came back after speaking with he chef and advised us the undercooked meat is how it was supposed to be. We were offered 2 desserts for the trouble. When our bill came, were were charged for the missing items. The waiter had to leave and come back with corrected bill.
We have been to other Milestones with great service, not sure what happened here that night? The restaurant was also not at capacity which would have been a consideration for the issues.

The food was okay. The service was okay. The sound system was terrible! Overly loud tinny music(?) screams through the speakers, making talking and listening to others very difficult. Good conversation is a goal of eating out with friends and family. Very difficult here. If the music was even audible beyond the tinny sounds coming out of the speakers it would be bearable, but it didn't even sound like music. Impossible to make out any songs. I would, most definately not return or recommend this restaurant.

Their new renovation remains terrific, clean & bright, and the food is great! We had variations of the all-day brunch - omelettes, big breakfast, fruit, lattes - and it was all excellent, hot and fresh. Happy also to see a familiar face - our server Peter, who is always prompt, friendly, efficient, and courteous! Keep it up, Milestones!
