I'd warn them that the noise level is extreme at the Dundas location --- especially on a Friday night! But it is very close to the Ed Mirvish theatre and a good spot to have dinner before the show. Best to reserve a time for dinner, though!

My friend and I were impressed with our server. Sorry I don't know her name. Immediately upon sitting she told us where the washrooms were and quickly served our food throughout. Not too rushed. Just right. She had a pleasant personality, but not overpowering. One of the best experiences really. I will certainly go to this MIlestones again and recommend it to my friends

booth seat was cracked, I think they should fix it , clearly the place is a little run down and in need of a small reno or at least replace the worn out seats.

The food was delicious (I had the sirloin steak) and service was excellent. The location was great for seeing a show at the Eglin Theatre

The service was very good, the food came within minutes of ordering each course, menu however has been changed drastically and portions seem to be smaller and menu has less variety.

Booked through open table and mentioned two things. One was a low sodium diet and two it was our anniversary. Neither one was acknowledged. When my food came it was too salty. The waiter said I should have told them about it when I ordered. He said they would make a new meal but we all know that it takes twice as long to make it again and by then my husband would be finished. And I mention our anniversary at the door but that was about it. For my birthday at least got a dessert. Why book through open table and fill out my requests when the restaurant does not read it. This is more of an Open Table issue then the restaurant.

We have been to Milestones in a number of places across the country. We have found the food and service consistently good. In particular, the food is fresh and nicely seasoned. Good value for the money.

This Milestones is overlooks Yonge/Dundas Square. It's our go to restaurant when we come for movie night. We have a table on the terrace this time, nice, warm evening but tables are set too tight so getting into your seat is difficult. Not the fault of the servers though! management please take note! The Beet salad with Goat cheese is good, the fish in the tacos are nice & crispy. Tried Thai noodle with shrimp & chicken in a curry coconut sauce - well-seasoned and quite good as well. We'll be back!

It was busy and our server Joshua was moving . He gave great service and we really enjoyed our dinner. All the food was tasty and pleasing to look at it. We ordered: spinach artichoke dip, Asian chicken bites for starters; butternut squash ravioli and spinach salad with salmon for mains. Delicious!
I love the new streamlined menu.

Service was excellent. Despite our reservation getting lost, they found us a spot. Dinner was best I have ever had at that location. Waitress knew we were going to the theater so she was very effecent getting drinks, dinner, coffee and individual bills. Well done,

The food was delicious and flavorful. I left satisfied. Server could have been a little more friendly but to be fair he had a lot of tables to tend too. The restaurant was extremely busy. It was my first time in maybe 4 years since eating at milestones. Looking forward to going back.

The service was fine but my food was served COLD. We were going to a show and didn’t have time to get a new meal made. It was really disappointing as this is my favourite meal at Milestones and I was looking forward to it. The staff was gracious and apologetic but that didn’t change the fact that my dinner was served cold.

The dining room was almost empty and they sat two groups RIGHT beside each other. Food was good, but took forever, considering that the place was not busy.

The view was nice but the service was subpar. They brought food to the tables with our utensils, if they cleared something mid table they did not return a replacement. Guests had to ask for basic items that should have been mindfully presented or offered. It was not even that busy so we were surprised by the waiting staffs lack of service.

It’s shocking to me how Milestones continues to serve subpar food and has terrible service. This time the waiter messed up the order and the bills multiple times and just generally didn’t seem to care. On top of that, the food was not good and the service was slow. Most of us couldn’t finish our meals. The only reason we go is for the Bellini but honestly I don’t think it’s worth it anymore.

Sat on patio so nice to be outside. Beet salad was reasonably priced but very small. Wine as usual was pricey but decent. Service was friendly but a bit slow - think they forgot about us.

Was pleasantly surprised. I had been years ago and was not impressed but gave it another try. Food was delicious . Had the beet and goat cheese salad with a beef slider. Amazing. Of course started off with my favourite bellini. Waiter was quick as we had a play that night. Thanks for a new and great restaurant to go to.

Literally the worst downtown restaurant. We went there after pride, the restaurant was basically empty, you could see more than 20 tables that were empty but the guy at the door was saying it would take ~1hour to get a table. I came to open table and all the slots were open, I reserved one and went back saying that I got a reservation for 7. He told us it would take ~20 min to get a table ready and that he would send a text message when it was ready. We waited for 30 minutes and nothing happened, I told him there was more than 5 tables empty outside and asked if we could get one. He was extremely rude so we just left and never got a text message.

HORRIBLE PLACE.
