We were a party of 3 adults. We were greeted warmly, immediately upon arrival and taken promptly to a booth with a wonderful view of Victoria’s inner harbour. From start to finish we received prompt, professional service and every one of our meals were delicious. Thanks for a great evening!

My family and I, had a wonderful dining experience. The service, meals and pricing were exceptionally great and I have now acquired an addiction to the "Wam Bam shrimp" ….to die for!! Our server was very pleasant, polite and informative with any questions in regards to the meal selections while being very attentive without being intrusive, a real asset to Milestones Grill Overall, I would definitely recommend Milestones Grill & Bar (Victoria) as my high expectations were greatly satisfied. Thank you for asking because without constructive feedback from those you serve, there is no room for improvement. Yours truly, Jackie P.

Excellent food. Our waiter was too involved in our meal. Too much like a Keg experience. I am out for a meal, not a conversation with the waiter!

Food was tasty and waitress was friendly but so so many screaming kids in one place ! The recent remodel has made the space super loud. Prices are way too high for quality of food.
$26 for a salad with grilled meat!
Not excited to go back.

You need more seafood on the Menu. Great location but really no local seafood like Dungeness Crab, mussels etc

Are on the patio on the main tourist walk through. It was loud, due to intoxicated tourist. Food was a bit sloppy on the plate. But the taste was pretty good. Enjoyed the loganberry lemonade, the happy hour red isn’t worth the $5.50

My only complaint would be the music from the bar area - it was a bit too loud. Otherwise, everything else was great.

We enjoyed dinner with a view of the water. We had a reservation, arrived a little early, and were seated immediately. Services was prompt, and very friendly without being obtrusive. The Portabello Mushroom Chicken in a Garlic Cream Sauce was exceptionally delicious. My friend had the Steak Frites and enjoyed it as well. For Dessert, the Ganache Torte was especially decadent, and the churros were quite unique with the salted carmel and chocolate dipping sauces. The wine list was a bit limited, but the ones we chose were good with our meals. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience and we would return the next time we are in Victoria.

The view is the best part about this location. We did an evening dinner to watch the sunset on the harbour, which was beautiful.

The food was mediocre, but nothing wow. Something typical I could get from a neighbourhood pub. You are definitely paying for the location overall.

Chicken Parmesan description states “Two Giant Chicken Breasts”. I have has this dish before and it NEVER looked like what they gave me yesterday.
I received two tiny (almost cornish game hen sized) breasts. Not even enough to make ONE chicken breast. I sent it back and asked for a new one, our server agreed it is normally not this small.
The Manager came back with a new dish, itty bitty chicken breasts BURNT! She then gave me a line about them weighing their food and if that is the case they would know they were well under scale.
What kind of a manager brings burned food to the table?
She should be ashamed.
Never order an entree at Milestones. Stick with burgers and sandwiches.

The food was adequate but this location needs a refresh. It doesn't appear to be very clean.
There had been an unfortunate incident in the restaurant just prior to our arrival but the staff handled it well.

Disappointing food, my burger was burnt and very small and tasteless. They really need to have some taste in the burgers.

Last night of our honeymoon, so we mentioned it was a special occassion. Not only did everyone congratulate us, we also got perfect seats in the restaurant. The drinks and meal were more than delicious, and to top it all off we received a free dessert.
The night couldn’t be better, thank you for making our last night in Canada so special!

Good overall, value for money. Would like to see more on the main menu such as chicken fingers or fish & chips. It seems either a selection of appetizers or a big heavy pasta or meat dish.

Food has gone downhill. Low quality. Takes forever to get an espresso, though there was hardly any customers. Very few vegetarian and no vegan options. Maybe there's less demand in the westshore?

One meal was good as usual, the other was completely wrong...when sent back substitute was not as described...roasted beet and goat cheese salad had very little goat cheese and the few beets were not roasted.. dressing was tasteless....that meal charge was removed. Good decision.

We always enjoy our time at the downtown Milestones! Food is great, view terrific! Our favorite waiter James was witty, charming and attentive as always, and made sure our needs were met. Even took care of a great birthday treat for my husband ( gluten free do I could share)- thanks James!

The restaurant was closed due to a malfunction in the kitchen. We were shuffled downstairs to another venue and sat outside in a cool breeze trying to speak over a Reggae-SKA festival on an open stage next door.

The restaurant did try to contact us (they said) but we were not able to get any message before we set off to dine. We were disappointed and felt that Milestones would have been a much better place to dine.

Our guest ordered a plain hamburger, it came with sauce. It took 10 minutes to find the server and another 20 to replace it. We were all finished when it finally came. You need more staff out front and in the back.

Milestones is always a favourite for us. The menu has a lot of nice and somewhat different options.The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The service is attentive, friendly, and unobtrusive. It’s a popular place and I find it a bit noisy but that’s part of the ambiance. I’ll be back and would highly recommend it!

There was a piece of wire from a scrubbing pad in my husband's food. Your bellinis are great but your screw drivers are very poor quality.

Everytime we come to Victoria we make a point of having a meal at this restaurant. Our choice is the Steak Frittes. This time was no exception. Excellent meal, great service and we got exactly the table we had previously requested, can't do better than that!!!!!

Our group of six adults was squashed into a booth. Rather uncomfortable sitting with our knees touching. Food was all very good, with the possible exception of the hot spinach dip.....the salsa on top of the dip did not add anything positive to the dish. When the bill came (we had asked for 3 separate bills) it was all on one bill, sorted into three parts. I had a BCAA card so had ordered the free appy, but the charge for the appy was put in with my sisters portion of the bill. When we asked our server to bill and credit me for the appy, she just ended up credited each of the couples for a third of the appy, leaving the charge in my sister's portion of the bill. So my sister ended up paying for the appy, getting credit for a third of it, therefore having to pay 2/3 of the cost. This left us all fumbling to try and give her cash to make up for this. I must say it was a very confusing way to sort out the free appy. It took forever for our server to come by with the debit machine, and by then we were in a rush to leave as we had theater tickets, so the whole billing mess wasn't sorted out to our satisfaction. Why is it so difficult to provide three separate bills?

Nice place to eat and relax. Great service. Atmosphere was very quiet and the inner harbour view was absolutely magnificent. I would come again for sure. Our waiter was very friendly and was very informative about what was on special and was very humerous. The price was fair with fairly large portion and was very tasty.
