The food and service was wonderful for our date night. We tried the Asian chicken bites appetizer and it was amazing.

Milestones has improved since our last visit. The menu has healthier choices and the vegan/vegetarian selections are quite tasty. Our grandchildren cleaned their plates : a first for one of them! Service was especially attentive. We will be going back when in Ottawa...our youngest grandchild has stated that Milestones is now her favorite. We also appreciate going through Open Table to reserve given that we are out of province.

The food and ambience were both good. Service was initially quite good, but we waited 10 minutes for our plates to be cleared, 10 more for a dessert menu to be provided, 5 more for the dessert order to be taken, and 10 more minutes to receive two desserts. And then getting a bill took another 5 and was done by a secondary person since our waiter had disappeared. All told, we were there less than 2 hours, but almost half was spent waiting for dessert and the bill. This is probably what I will remember, not the good quality meal.

I was disappointed as we are always pleased with the food, my boyfriend took the new dish chicken parmesan, I guess ok not too much flavour compare to the Portobello mushroom chicken dish that we take all the time. My steak and potatoes were warn not hot :( and taste was ok, wouldn't order another steak at the Mills. Dinner took an hour before it was serve.

Overall the waitress was really nice and offered free desserts on the house because of the one hour wait.

This was our first time that it was that long and disappointed with the food, we hope that next time it will be better as we normally like to go there.

We will give them another chance !!!!

Always great service, but Majella really knocked it out of the park this time. Always so friendly and professional, she represents the Milestones brand perfectly. I love bringing clients here for lunch because it's always the same great food and experience.

Came to Milestones - Kanata location before a concert at the Canadian Tire Centre. Was very busy so we’re glad we made a reservation. Staff was super friendly and the food was delicious. Food and drinks came fairly quick. The only thing I have to say is that we were seated too close to the doors and I was pretty chilly most of the dinner, so maybe ask for a spot further away from the doors. All in all, would definitely dine here again!

We have been to other Milestones restaurants in the Ottawa area and in Toronto, and chose the one in Kanata because of the proximity to the Canadian Tire Centre (we had hockey tickets for the game that evening), and because we had friends in from out of town for a dinner before the game. However, Milestones is always a good choice, and what I personally liked about this venue was the arrangement of the tables, which for us anyway offered privacy. Also, the serving staff was first-class - prompt, polite and attentive. Thanks.

Excellent meal! We went before the hockey game and completed our meal in plenty of time to see the warm-up at the arena. The only thing we notice every time we visit this restaurant is that it is too dark to read the menu without getting out our phones and using the flashlight feature.

After years of enjoying Milestones, I have been very disappointed the last 3 or 4 times we have eaten there and the food was only lukewarm when it arrived at our table. I'm not certain if I will be returning to Milestones anytime soon. The Bilinis are great and I have enjoyed that part of my dining experience. The service has been good overall. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

I requested a table by the window and was given a table tucked up in a dark corner.
The waiter was changed during the meal and we waited a long time for drinks.

We went out with girls for a friend visiting gathering
There were several allergies at the table and our server was very good about conveying this to the kitchen however there was still a breakdown in communication as the meal still had the allergen clearly in the meal. They corrected it and removed from the bill
We enjoyed the company and venue very much

My wife and I enjoyed the evening, the service was good, as was the food. We found it a bit cool in the restaurant, so we dined outside on the patio, and eventually found a good seat out of the wind. Staff were very helpful. Always enjoy this chain, as they seem to have consistent food quality, good service and pleasant ambiance. The wine is a bit pricey for what you get, but overall, a good dining experience.
