Excellent service
Our server was attentive and friendly.

Place is nice.

The only criticism I will offer is that the food wasn’t ‘hot’ when it came out. It was warm. I think this is one area the kitchen can improve upon ... given that it wasn’t extremely busy in a Sunday evening. But the server made up this potential shortfall.

Thanks

With the reservation we were immediately taken to our table, a comfortable spot with great lighting. Our waitress Monica was friendly and attentive to details. The appetizers were great, then I had the Waygu meatloaf and my wife a New York steak , both were delicious. Ambient music was cool and not too loud, so we were able to talk without problems. It was my second time at Milestones and I will be coming back!

I was very impressed with it being Valentine’s Day how quickly drinks and food was coming out and how on the ball the staff was of clean up and set up. They really prepared for a busy night and they did it well!

Overall the evening seemed rushed. We hadn't finished the appetizer course and our entrees arrived. The temperature of the food was warm, not hot and by the time we finished it was getting cold. Ordered coffee and dessert, but no one stopped by to see if we needed a top up. A mediocre experience.

Place is great, so is food but your experience will be hit or miss depending on the server you get. There’s amazing servers here who are great and make your dining experience over the top and then there’s servers who don’t even know the menu items to save their life. Having a dairy allergy when the server says the spinach and artichoke dip and the ice cream are “safe” to eat I knew I was in big trouble. Decent restaurants should have educated servers especially on menu items and allergies. She “checked” with the chef and I can assure you the chef wouldn’t say items that clearly contain cheese in it are safe. I’ve eaten here multiple times and usually a good experience

I went with an old friend for lunch and the food was great. It came in good time. It was quiet in the restaurant so it was great to catch up and talk. Our server on the other hand did the bare minimum and was quite awkward. She never asked for a drink order and never refilled the water on the table. Another male server had come to remove the appetizer dishes that were still around during the meal. She asked us if we wanted dessert then when we said no she just walked away. She returned with one bill and a machine. This was strange for two diners, especially both being young females. We would have paid separately and instead needed to etransfer each other.

Our server was awesome! She was friendly and jovial. Our food was on point, and the menu selection had great variety. We had ample, comfortable space (in a booth) for our baby stroller, high chair, and party of six. The atmosphere was ideal for families and friends to catch up over a nice meal, without feeling rushed. Would definitely return to try other menu items!

We were served a dessert covered with toffee sauce that still had the paper lining underneath it. Very bad and dangerous!

The food was just ok even though we selected what was recommended as the best choices. It was also too warm inside the restaurant. The waiter was very nice and offered good service but the food was not good enough.

Steak was totally undercooked, hamburgers plain and tasteless. I don't think this restaurant has a REAL chef, steaks and hamburgers are simple food and to screw it up person must be clueless in cusine.

The service was absolutely amazing but did not like the food. I ordered veg option for spicy pesto noodle and it was full of oil. My friend ordered the same thing with chicken and she had the same issue.

Parking was a big problem and affected my husband’s mood. I enjoyed the pomegranate ginger beer tonic and the Chili chicken rice bowl. Lovely crunch and good balance of sweet and spicy. Our waiter was very helpful and pleasant.

The waitress and service was great! Very friendly. The food was ok for brunch. The eggs were overcooked - scrambled and over easy. The toast was burnt but they were flipped over to the less burnt side as presented on the plate. 2 out of the 4 meals were done alright. We’re undecided as to whether we would go back for Milestone’s brunch as there are many other brunch options in the area.

Once again we had a wonderful night at Milestones. Our server was great and understood how to assist us as we had our young children with us. That is why we continue to go to that location.

The server was very nice but we felt rushed. The food was just ok...somewhat too "done" and thus cancelled flavours out. $100 for two adults and one child was pricey. Still, we had a good night out.

Took my son and daughter - ambiance was great and food delicious. Good selection on menu. Artichoke and Spinach dip could be bigger - ran out of dip before chips were even close to being done.

The service was good. The staff are extremely young and somewhat inexperienced. However, THEY TRY! That makes a big difference. They may not be perfect but they try which is far better than getting attitude. Well done.

The food and value are what keeps the rating only at 3 / 5. Value is definitely not there. The prices of the dishes are nearly on par with far higher end restaurants located downtown. Given that these are not made from scratch on site dishes with super amazing ingredients, you have to wonder about the price point. The food was also somewhat hit / miss in terms of seasoning. Three of the dishes we tried were very bland - like zero salt. However, there was another dish that was more heavily salted.

In terms of ingredients, I was quite disappointed with the shrimp and lobster pasta. Three shrimps and one little piece of lobster is pretty thin in terms of featured ingredients. There was so few ingredients, the pasta didn't have much of that 'fresh sea' flavour.

Would I recommend this restaurant? Yes, for someone in the area already and looking for a nice venue. However, I would only suggest it because of the location.

Decent Milestones as it was quiet. We went on a Wednesday for their $50 date night special that includes one shared app, one entrée each and a shared dessert.

I'd recommend the steak frites for the entrée. Not sure if the cheesecake was good because we ordered the ganache torte, which was overly sweet!! Couldn't finish it.

A favourite spot of ours; good food, good prices, good service, in last night’s case, outstanding service. Jake K advised us on everything from the wine, a bold cab, to the dessert, sweet, rich white chocolate cheese cake. He was efficient, charming, helpful and knowledgeable. It was not surprising to learn that he likes cooking. If you open a restaurant of your own, Jake, we will be first in line. Meanwhile, a thank you to Milestones for hiring great people, including the hostess, Ingrid
