Twenty-five years ago, the Milestones story began in Vancouver on Denman Street. Today, we span coast-to-coast, with locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Newfoundland and Saskatchewan.
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.

Food was good and service was great. Was a Friday night so we went a little early to avoid the crowds.
Was very busy when we left and but the service remained good. Would return.

The restaurant was closing and it seemed the server was more caught up in her closing duties than serving us. It took her an hour to take our order we had to ask someone to go get her, we ran out of drinks and sat for 30 minutes without drinks, we would have easily gotten many more drinks had we been given the opportunity. The server was ill was seemed that we were her last priority which was upsetting as we were a big group and excited to have a night out. The food was good and hot but the service was sub-par.

Milestones Kamloops is a reputable restaurant with a nice view overlooking the city. We had Birthday dinner, including drinks, appetizers, 4 different entrées and dessert. The drinks were good, however throughout the entire time, we were not asked if we would like another. The appies, calamari and spinach artichoke dip was excellent! Although tasty, the entrées were served luke-warm, not hot. Thankfully, the incredible white chocolate cheesecake saved the day!

Milestones obviously reads the comments field in this app. On my reservation I explained that I was bringing a guest who uses a walker. The arranged the tables in a way to give a lot of space that was very appreciated. Made for a great evening. Service was very attentive and food was what you’d expect from this chain.

I have been to Milestones in Kamloops twice in 2 weeks. The first Friday, I went with my husband, we waited 25 minutes to be seated then we were finally seated at a table for 2 with 5 empty , set tables around us which seemed unusual since the waiting room was full. We then sat and waited for someone to acknowledge our presence which actually never happened and after waiting 20 minutes just to have a waiter talk to us, we left and went to another restaurant. Because I love the food at Milestones, I convinced 2 of my kids to go with me this last Friday night (my husband will not come anymore). I made a reservation, we were seated right away and our waitress was excellent, very attentive (until the time to order dessert) and our appetizer and dinner were brought in a timely manner. Unfortunately, the computer system must have failed because towards the end of the meal, I noticed a restaurant full of people, many getting frustrated, some leaving without ordering and almost all the wait staff sitting at 2 big tables near the kitchen manually do their bills. It was highly disorganized. I understand that systems fail, I have worked in many restaurants over the years and this stuff happens. But why would you abandon ALL your customers? Perhaps the 2 most mathematical waiters could have explained to their customers that someone else would take over for them temporarily while they calculate bills and 2, not 8 waiters could sit and calculate the bills while the others explain what is going on, manually write down what each person ordered at their tables, cover the tables of the 2 who are calculating which would have allowed the dining experience to not be so disruptive. We waited 45 minutes to get our dessert (which we finally ordered to go) and to get our bill which we actually calculated before the waitress got to us. 75% of the experience was excellent but I must admit it was extremely frustrating trying to get our dessert and bill so we could actually leave!

We usually really enjoy dining here but this evening was different. The service was very slow and the dish (portobello mushroom chicken) I usually order and enjoy was bland tonight. The appetizer I ordered was the Mediterranean goat cheese platter and the garlic was not roasted enough. It was still hard and was definitely not spreadable. It took a long time to get our bills. Maybe because it was a busy night.

Tried to walk in for dinner on a Monday at 6. It was hectic & we were told there is a 20 min wait so we left and made reservations for Wednesday. Upon arrival we walked to the front “host station” where we waited to be acknowledged for about 5 mins. We were apologized to and seated but then sat ready to order for 20+ min. Our waiter asked if we’d been helped & apologized again because it was busy. (Which is fine). We sat 40 mins before any food or drinks came. The food was very good but the waiter blamed the chef stating “he’s having a meltdown” for the wait on our food. Once we were ready for the bill we were told it was the hostess’ fault for our waiter being so unorganized. Was not a very well managed staff with poor team skills. Won’t be going back soon. At least not during dinner rush .

The fish tacos were great, but the rice was over cooked to the point of being a solid puck. I complained about it, but hey still charged me for the meal. Would have appreciated at least a discount on that meal.

Don't get the Prime Rib, it is reheated out of a package. It is tender, but not because it was cooked correctly. It seemed to have been marinated in MSG or something that reduced the consistency to the same as ham.

Ok restaurant, nothing spectacular, but nothing special either.
Overpriced fow what you get. Small portions. Atmosphere is cold, nothing welcoming or warm.
Attitude is get them in, get them out, no sign of Management around.

Birthday dinner with friend. Tuesday evening. Bellini night. The 3 females ordered Bellinis. The machine was broken.
No substitute was offered even after we asked. I ordered a glass of Red roster Pinot Gris from the wine menu, another waitress came back to let me know that they were out of that wine. My friend ordered the sliders. The buns must have been heated and then let sit since they were all hard and old looking and tasting. As a customer that visits restaurants a couple of times each week and used to be a weekly customer at this Milestones this was without doubt our most disappointing visit.
No mention of the birthday whatsoever. Why ask for the occasion when making the reservation if it doesn’t matter at all.
There were at least 5 occasions during the evening when a really bad experience could have been turned around by staff or Management with some good customer service.

Excellent👏👏👏

A couple of years ago we went and it was most horrible . As we had been going to Milestones for about 10 years I was extremely disappointing!

So as it was my birthday I was determined to give it one more try 😁

Everything was great, the food , the drinks ( mojitos are my fav) and the device .

So happy we will be back maybe date night 😉

Food is typically good at Milestones. We zipped out there for a quick bite and a drink before we headed out.

Only real complaint was the bartender didn't make the best Old Fashioned. ...used sugar instead of simple syrup...so my drink was gritty

Restaurants logo is, "Grab a drink, Stay a While". They have definitely taken this to heart. We waited an hour to get our food (after order was placed). As we were leaving and waiting for a cab outside, a lady over heard us talking about the ridiculous wait time. She had mentioned they had booked days ago for a birthday party of 10 people. They waited for 2 hours and ended up leaving without any food. Neither of us got an explanation by management, only an apology at tip time from the server.
I ordered the Mushroom Chicken Vermicelli, it came with spaghetti. Would never ever ever go back to this restaurant and would tell everyone to stay away.
I have been to other Milestones, with exceptional service and food!

I found the food to be average, tasting of pre cooking and mass production. I believe the food is overpriced and ate there only because I had a gift card, I would not pay my own money for the experience.
