The service was absolute garbage. They had the reservation in the wrong name (I had called 2 days prior to change the amount of people and the name the reservation was under, the girl on the phone “assured” me that the name would be changed - but that she didn’t know how to do it. Needless to say, the name wasn’t changed which caused confusion to some guests arriving. There was to be a bottle of wine at the table upon arrival (to surprise the special guest), that was not done. A waitress went to get the bottle and brought back dirty glasses with it.
Our waitress was high/drink, spilling things, constantly interrupting, Yelling things to her co-workers, slurring and staggering. We asked for 4 alcoholic shots at the end of the meal, she came with five but took the 5th with her (no doubt she drank it) then tried to charge us for it. When we brought her attention to the error she started getting belligerent, but corrected the bill...HOWEVER, when it can’t time to pay the bill, she added THE EXACT AMOUNT OF THE DRINK into the debit/credit machine and tried to get us to pay for it a second time,
Spoke to the manager about her behaviour l, he seemed apologetic, offered us dinner dinner for two to make up for the nights fiasco, however none of us will use it, as we will not be back. I must admit I do not frequent franchise restaurants on a regular basis as we try to support local businesses, however it was the guest of honours choice to go there. A night that was supposed to be full of fun and celebration quickly turned into a disaster the moment we stepped foot in the door.

this was my best experience here yet - bar manager was so attentive and everyone worked as a team as our waiter had a big party - the server at the host stand ( cant remember her name _ red hair - she was amazing also - she has served me before and she loves her job ! so great to see - kitchen all food fabulous - I had the holiday menu and the meal was to die for - steak - lobster bisque fabulous! I will be back and recommend this to everyone !

Open table was an excellent tool to reserve a table. We had a 6:45 PM reservation and we should up on time. I could see that they where starting to get busy. We ordered our drinks but out waitress didn't come back to take our food order for 15 minutes. 1 hour later.... our food arrived. The prime rib was warm and the mashed potatoes were cold. Don't kid yourself Milestone prime rib is nothing compared to the Keg prime rib. The waitress must have noticed our concern that it took 1 hour to bring our food to us and she came back with two free deserts and apologized. Next time I will go to the Keg and get food I know will be warm, on time and that I will enjoy

I had experienced Milestones Restaurant in another province ordering same plates and in Kingston I found the preparation and the taste did not fare well comparatively. They were prepared a little differently and came with sauces that we’re not the same as I had experienced before… It was definitely missing something. The service on the other hand was extraordinary!! I was taking care of from the minute I entered the restaurant to the minute I left… Congrats on that end of things.

Our latest meal here on a Tuesday night wasn't the best. Staff seemed disorganized and not overly thrilled we had kids with us. In the past, I have had great meals and service so this was a disappointment.

We didn't end up staying because there was no table by the window to watch the Santa claus parade. I understand the window table isn't guaranteed but that was indeed the purpose of our reservation. So i hope we can somehow make this possible next year.

Many people had reserved for dinner before the show. I’d reserved for 5:30 and resto called to confirm reservation and asked whether we were attending the show. It would have been best if he’d suggested we come earlier to beat the rush. We had to wait over an hour for the food and then eat quickly to get to the show on time.

I love the atmosphere at this restaurant. I hope this restaurant stays open because it a wonderful addition to downtown Kingston. However, it is too bad that this restaurant is unable to operate properly when busy. The restaurant was busy the night we went for dinner. We did not order appetizers. It however took an hour for us to get meals. Because we were going to a show we had 10 minutes to eat our meals. All I can say is ...please get it together. This is not acceptable.

Service was very slow, and debit machines were extremely slow. We arrived 2 hours before the show we were going to, and we were still late for the show. This happened to us the last time as well :(
We will be choosing a different restaurant before the next show. I would only recommend this restaurant if you have all night to sit and wait.

It took over 45 mins to receive our meal, my steak was overcooked (disclaimer: the other 3 in the party were satisfied, although they each had salads w/chicken) and then we were rushed to finish by the front of house manager. Wasn’t impressed, overall. Otherwise: the location, service staff, and decor is great. Prices are fair.

I was very disppointed. The steak was not cooked to order, the garlic mash potatoes tasted like plain potatoes and the green beans were beyond hard! We did get a dessert, the Decadence Duo, which I highly recommend.

Our server, Sabrina, was very friendly and helpful. The manager also stopped by a couple of times to make us feel welcome. The only thing that I would suggest is that Sabrina introduce herself so that the customers feel more at home. We didn’t know Sabrina’s name until we got the bill. Otherwise everything was great.

First sat us right beside the kitchen when we are trying to have a nice dinner with our friends on our anniversary and it was so loud we could hardly here. So we asked to move witch we did. Then I ordered the sirloin steak and it was very chewy bc of fat throughout the meat. Witch is to bad bc my last experience there was good, but after this one it will be awhile bf I go back.

Our service was amazing for our special occasion, and our server made sure we were always taken care of, not ever waiting on him to return, and the service was very fast. They were also so nice as to put our appetizer and dessert on the house as part of our special family celebration, and it was so very appreciated! Will definitely return, and would recommend to anyone celebrating a milestone.

Never been to Milestones before and was quite impressed. It is similar to the Keg but I found the menu selection much better though some items were a little pricey. The only downfall was I found the tables were really crammed in and you were quite close to everyone around you. Tables should be more spread out. Overall excellent experience.

A good restaurant to drop in for one of their special days i.e. 'Girls Night Out or Date Night'. Easy atmosphere for any event- for a quick bite, a drink at that bar and munchies or a full on dinner menu.
We have always had a good experience each time we have visited.
