Had a issue when we were first seated (hostess pleasantly told us we only had 2 hours to eat and then we needed to vacate the table for the next person who had made a reservation as well). We asked to speak with the manager, as this did not sit well with us, and he explained that the delivery of the message was not correct and we were welcome to stay as long as we want. He said that someone else was booked for this table but he had moved them so all was fine now. At the 2 hour mark could see servers hovering and looking at us, which made us feel like they wanted us out (even though we had ordered desert and more drinks after our meal). Usually we enjoy eating at this location, but this experience overall was less than positive and made for an somewhat uncomfortable evening with our friends. Despite the communication issue, our server was super and did a great job and the food was quite good as usual.

Great service, great food but the tables for five people are in a dark area, even for Milestone’s.

Fun night at milestones- two couples went out together and each enjoyed the date night menu. Excellent choices and great value for the money! Server - Shay - was personable and professional.
We have been recommending this milestones location to friends for a few years...

My meal was excellent but I ordered Beet and Feta salad with salmon and got it with chicken instead,the waitress did offer to change it but my friend had her meal as well so I thought by the time they cooked my salmon she would be done.

Service and food were outstanding. Food delivered in a timely way. Calamari could have been a bit more generous and more natural in form

Our Server was very attentive and appreciate the complimentary birthday dessert.

There is a group of us who come once a month after the show. None like the mushroom soup, we would like the French Onion soup and the beef sliders back on the menu, crème brûle would be a nice addition to the menu, the bun sounds good for the chicken club, but too much bread. I will ask them to use multigrain bread the next time.

Milestones was very accommodating as I was dining with seniors who found portions to large. They allowed them to share one meal but served the one meal on two separate plates. This simple gesture went over big with the family. Food and service was great.

I took my daughter-in-law and grandchildren (two preteen girls) for lunch and celebration of the end of summer. We were all very pleased with the food, atmosphere and service. It will be one of our favourite restaurants for celebrations in the future. Thank you to all who made it special for us that day- greeter, server, chief.

Surprise, the place was noisy at 6pm but quietened down later as the early crowd thinned out.
I suspect someone on the kitchen staff did not show up. 45 minutes is a long wait. However the food was hot and very tasty. Our server was very good and the restaurant gave us complimentary desserts for the delay. A very nice touch. We will certainly come back.

I and my guests had the prime rib starters, as I always do. I was dismayed to learn that prime rib is going to be discontinued after August. One of the best things on your menu and you'll discontinue it? Why would I come back????? Too bad. Otherwise, our lunch experience was awesome with a wonderful waitress who made the experience even better.

The team service was very good, as was the food. The only small issue was a mix-up at the hostess desk. The reservation had been made in my name for three of us. One of my party arrived early and was shown to a table inside the restaurant. When another friend and I arrived, we asked if we could sit outside and were told yes. We asked if the third member of our party had arrived and were told no. We sat outside for over 20 minutes before finally texting our third friend to find out that she had been waiting for us for a half an hour. Clearly a flagging system of some sort at the front desk should have been used to indicate that one member of the party had already arrived. Other than that mix-up, we had a lovely evening.

I have always been made to feel welcomed upon my arrival, the serving staff have all be very attentive, know the menu and their smiles and attitude make you feel welcomed and wanting to return. I have never been disappointed with any of the many meals I have ordered. I look forward to my next visit.

Our recent visit for lunch was less enjoyable than on previous occasuiosn! Our server was excellent- addressing our comments with hints to prevent future issues but, in fairness, those issues still occurred. Butternut squash ravioli ( a group favourite) was too spicy due to spicing of the pecans- suggested we order them on the side next time. Prime rib sandwich very fatty- suggested we order it trimmed next time. One pasta order arrived on the tepid side, but that wasn’t mentioned to our server. In review, four out of five orders had an issue. In the end, our server Kelly compted the prime rib sandwich. Will definitely return but think the chef was off his game that day.
