Milestones use to be my favourite place to go but since they’ve changed the menu and the atmosphere inside, I honestly probably wouldn’t go back. It also took a long time for a waitress to even notice we had been seated. The new seating/tables are strange and uncomfortable. The food was really good though.

The fancy decor and high prices simply do not match the food quality. The steak was a terrible cut of meat and overcooked, and the vegetables ranged from raw to overcooked. Not a horrible meal but certainly not worth the price.

Valentine's Day is usually a day that we avoid eating out, but decided to go for it this year. It was a good choice. Our server, Erin had been working all day, but was still attentive, and very pleasant. The food was awesome. We both decided on the 3-course Valentine's Day dinner, and were pleasantly surprised.
Thank you for another memorable evening at Milestones!

Our requested location wasnt given to us, but later our server noticed our request. We were offerred to change location but declined.

Waygo beef meat loaf was delicious but mashed potatoes were too much. The sliced steak sammie was good.

Noise level was very loud and some tables were too close.

Food and service is quite good. No wait times with the open table app. Portion sizes seemed to have been reduced since the last visit a few months ago. Prices on the new menu seem to remain the same but portion sizes seemed significantly smaller.

Great date night out!! It was busy so we waited a bit to get served but the service was excellent, the food came out in good time and was delicious. Not a speck left on either of our plates. In the winter it was a little chilly by the door. We run warm so it wasn't too bad but if you're already chilly ask for something further from the door. The cost was very reasonable thinking that more casual places have similar prices with the lack of atmosphere that you get from milestones. Excited to try their brunch menu soon.

I had a truly great experience at Milestones Waterloo. From reservation making until stepping out of the door after our visit. I requested a booth in my reservation that I made online and my request was fulfilled! We were greeted by two wonderful hostesses and then by our server Spencer. Spencer was very well versed in his product knowledge and was very polite and accommodating to all of my requests.
I have worked in the food and beverage industry for 18 years and have always trained my staff to say “my pleasure” instead of “you’re welcome”. I noticed every member of the team that we had an interaction with also said the same response to “thank you”. This really resonated with me and I truly loved it as silly as that may sound.
The food and beverage selection was excellent and well rounded. Drinks were prepared and delivered in a timely fashion and were delicious.
The food was absolutely excellent. Salad was crisp and chilled and the entrees were hot and prepared to perfection.
Spencer and the Milestones team created a very pleasurable dining experience from start to finish.
My hat is off to the entire team and management of this location. I would suggest that you have a “well oiled machine” operating at its peak. I truly couldn’t even think of one suggestion that I would have.
I will definitely return.
Thank you

Went here for new years eve. It was very loud, but the restaurant was packed so that's to be expected. The food was not great. My steak was burned on the outside and under done in the middle. The vegetables we overcooked. The mashed potatoes were very chunky. Overall, for the price, I think there are better restaurants to go to that care more about their quality of food.

We were there for our anniversary dinner and while we enjoyed our meal, the noise level was very high. I felt like I was yelling at my husband. The high ceilings are conducive to that issue.

I vowed I would never go back when they took the chicken Parm off the menu but I caved. I ordered the steak frites, the steak was perfectly cooked but the meat was full of gristle that I could not chew through and had to discreetly disposed of in my banking. The portion of frites was quite small and served at room temperature

Our experience was excellent, from the first smiling reception from both the gentleman who seated us to our lovely waitress. It was the very best Caesar we have ever eaten, well worth the garlic breath!! The pastas were so delicious you did not want to stop eating. But we were very satisfied when we left. We did not have enough room for the list of desserts....another time!
We would highly recommend Milestone to any of our family or friends!

8 in our group. Two orders too long after the rest and went to the wrong people.

On the positive side, one person was celiac and the server and kitchen were very good with that to make sure her order was gluten free and not cross-contaminated (which does require full awareness and careful handling).
