We always love dining at Milestones. Only negative is the noise level, but unfortunately, on an occasion like Valentine's Day, that cannot be avoided. it did improve when quite a few had left and i remembered I could turn my hearing aids down! ;-)

Our waiter was friendly and cheerful. Food was good. Asked for water a few times and finally got it. Never did get the extra cheese we asked for the pasta dish my husband ordered. My husband was looking forward to a chicken dish you used to serve where the chicken was breaded and had a tomato sauce with cheese on top served over pasta. It is no longer on the menu.

We came in around 6:15 pm. Was placed beside a table that had a huge party coming in for 7 pm.
Our table and huge party table had the same server, making the end of our visit drawn out with unnecessary waiting.
May empty tables and booths on the other side of the restaurant.
Asked for a medium steak, felt it was overcooked, dry.
Coffee, in my opinion, was a few hours old, (yes I understand not many people order coffee at this time of day) l would have waited for fresh if asked.

Excellent service, hardly any wait time for the food which was delivered to the table hot and all four meals came together.

Considering the cost of a dinner, I would expect better quality. The asparagus that I had were so woody and stringy that made them hard to eat. When my meal said that is came with vegetables I expected more than three skinny stringy asparagus and two small pieces of soapy overcooked red peppers, Not very eye appealing. Hadn’t been there in a long time have been very disappointed in items you’ve taken off the menu and your prices are too high for what you are serving.

We had a great time, the only disappointment was that Prime Rib wasn't on the menu anymore. This was the main reason we chose this restaurant.

Meat loaf was "stone cold" while the soup was "burn your mouth" too hot!
Food was good once the soup cooled and the meatloaf was sent back to the kitchen to be heated - but neither situation should have ocurred.

Great menu and wine list.
One item on menu was not available for a member of our group. Disappointing.
We waited at least 25 minutes for soups, salads and an egg and bacon order. Too long.
Friendly, helpful server.
Would recommend.
Will hope for better luck next time.

We were greeted and seated immediately even though we were early for our reservation. The waiter was phenomenal and patient as we were quite chatty and not ready to order. The food was great, too.

I always love Milestones, but they were out of Prime Rib. Can't hold that too much against them though because it happens to many restaurants. Mushroom soup was excellent with my steak. Noise level was a little high but still had a great time.

Good place with lots of menu choices. Busy night and we were still served our meal in a relatively good amount of time. Mains were cold (was only complaint) this evening, must have sat at the pass for a bit.

TIMING IS EVERYTHING

We've dined at this Milestone's location four times in the past few months and each visit has seen our experience declining in either service, food, or ambiance. This latest meal, during Victoria's "Dine Around" period was simply a mess.

The restaurant was busy, even though it was early in the dinner period (5:30), but things got off to a bad start with a distracted waitress that seemed to be serving (trying to) in several separate areas. Drinks were slow in coming, then she tried to rush the pace of our three course meals.

We'd barely finished our starters when our desserts arrived - to our amazement - and were quickly returned to the kitchen. Shortly after, our mains appeared, but the chefs had obviously finished my steak well in advance of the plates for the other three diners in our party. The steak was lukewarm and overcooked (not medium-rare as ordered), the mashed potatoes and vegetables were even cooler.

It took several minutes before we could attract our servers attention to request a new steak, and then a substantial wait while my tablemates nearly finished their meals. That really put a damper on our experience, although the restaurant did take 20% off everyone's main, and apologize for the inconvenience.

Finally, the desserts arrived, but they were almost certainly the ones that had been delivered earlier, as the sauces were cold and congealed and they tasted dry and stale from sitting out long after they had been prepared (cheesecake and ganache).

All in all, a forgettable experience and one we don't wish to repeat at Milestones. We won't be returning any time in the near future.

The overall experience was good. The only disappointment was the waitress was not aware that it was a special 75th birthday meal (even though it was in the booking details) After telling the waitress at dessert time the cost of one of the desserts was removed from the bill (which was very kind). I just feel like she may have been a bit more upbeat if she had been told from the reservation that it was a celebration. Why ask if it’s a special occasion on the reservation app if it doesn’t get to the wait staff?

Great dinner . Everyone really enjoyed the dinner. Service was very fast as we were going to a movie so that was important. We had beef dips, one with salad, the other with fries and one fellow had a pasta penne dish which he loved.

Food was cold, steak was chewy, parmesan fries were meh. The Bellini was the best thing about my meal. The fish taco was good, service was great and they comped me a dessert for my birthday, which was nice but it was sickeningly sweet.
