Very glad we chose Milestones. We had to change our reservation from 4 to 5 people, and nit an issue. They just asked if we could vacate the table by 8 pm.

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.

Our server was on his last day of training and he did a fantastic job! He was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly.

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.

Jennie was our server, she was friendly, engaging, attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious, and I had the new “Show Stopper” for dessert, it was TO DIE FOR!

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.

It was a Tuesday after a holiday weekend so not very busy. Greeter was very nice and escorted us to a nice quiet area. The server was very pleasant and when we told her that we had not seen each other in a while she said she would wait for our cues to take our orders and timing. Very nice. Food was good, but we had to return the Caesar salad because it was very over dressed, almost soggy. Second salad was perfect. Overall a great time. The only complaint I have with not only Milestones but restaurants in general is the overwhelming perfume smell. I wish that there was a scent free seating area for those of us who have allergies and develop migraines from these perfumes.

I like coming to milestones but I always feel rushed out. Like they want to get rid of us. We ask to sit in the bar area so we can hang out and visit but we were still rushed out. Plus it was crazy expensive.

Celebration of 49th and 73 birthdays. 6th visit to milestones. Waited 40 minutes between starters and entrees. Chicken portabello entree came with blob of stone cold spagettini and warm under-cooked asparagus. Roast beef sandwich came with cold well done beef rather than hot med-rare, yam fries were cold and greasy as were the fried onions. Manager's excuse was that the steak dinner had to be redone as it was not up to their standard and she voided the cost of the meals, except the 2 alcoholic drinks. Very upsetting evening rather than birthday celebration. If excuse is factual, then all 3 meals should have been thrown out and started again so they are delivered to the table hot and edible at the same time. It will be a long time before we visit this restaurant again, if ever.

Our group of 5 chose to dine at Milestones. The restaurant was moderately busy but certainly not packed. We waited over 12 mins for initial service then 47 mins for our food. One of the people in out group had to leave a specific time and was therefore rushed to eat and pay. It created a somewhat tense experience unfortunately.

Even though I had booked on line, they didn't find my reservation until later so we were given a crowded table in the bar. Not sure I'd use this service for my reservations again

The prime rib is excellent. The other selections were okay but not memorable. The wine prices are high for low to mid-range quality wines. The wine selection needs expert opinion. There was nothing exceptional. The Royal Oak offers better wines for lower prices. Try their Sangiovese.

The service here is always amazing. They always go above and beyond. This visit was no exception. I wish I could remember her name. She was excellent. Food was great. They even brought my son a complimentary dessert as we were there for a celebration of him.

My wife and I like milestones very much most of the time we can’t get into Kanata one so we end up at the pinecrest restaurant we have started to notice that the food is way better at the pinecrest location Something has changed in the Kanata location I always get the prime rib and twice now the meal is not overly hot and the portions seem to be smaller. Pinecrest is not as nice of a restaurant but the service is still great and the food is to.
