    Location and view was great and our server was lovely. We were a party of 4 with 2 young children and at least they had a kids' menu so that was a plus. Overall though food was bland, my chopped salad wasn't the greatest, we ordered the piri piri guac which sounded great on the menu but fell flat. Husband had the 10oz steak, again, ho hum. Don't think we'll be going back.

    We wanted somewhere special for our final night not just in Vancouver but in Canada too as this was the end of a 3 week vacation. We found the restaurant on the inter-net and it came highly recommended. The restaurant is beautifully designed - edgy but smart and chic. The view from one end of the balcony was great - not quite so good at our end. It was a warm night (mid August) - we were asked if we wanted the heaters but we didn't feel the need. Our waiter was brilliant - very attentive, knowledgeable and interesting. We all chose the sharing menu, with steak for man course and each was cooked to perfection. The choice of desserts was a little limited - you have to like chocolate! - but we thoroughly enjoyed them.

    Dined on 8/11/2014
    I have come here twice in the last 3 weeks. Both times the food was very good but the service was horrible. Don't rely on your server to be attentive (not refilling water, not asking if food is ok, wondering where she is when you want your bill) when you dine. This is very unusual for this location since I've been a frequent customer since they've opened.

    I've been here many times and this is the first time I was disappointed with the service and speed our food came out from the time we ordered. Service was lacking, server did not refill our waters or cared to ask if I wanted another beverage. It took an extra long time for us to receive our food. The table sat down after us and ordered after us and received their food before us. Patio is scenic but very noisy from the street traffic.

    This is such a nice location and space, it's such a shame that the service and food were meh. I had the steak sandwich and the steak tasted like nothing. There was no sauce or flavour on it at all. A few onions were thrown in for good measure but it did nothing for the flavour. The bread was ok but nothing special. Our service wasn't great even though it wasn't busy. We would sit for 10 min with empty water glasses while servers buzzed around us. I wouldn't go back even though the location was great.

    Our server was awesome, she is super friendly and helpful all the time. I ordered the seafood fettuccine and it said spicy on the menu but the outcome was super spicy which I couldn't accept and she took care of me right a way and offered me another dishes. I ordered the ahi tuna taco and it was super good. I am sure I will go back to this restaurant soon.

    We booked a birthday family dinner for 11 people since we've dined here before and we liked the private room in the front. The shredded lettuce that came with the burritos was very dry, as was the beef and fish tacos were very un-appetizing with some green sauce that was squirted or plopped on top. The seafood linguine was awful since the mussels were not fresh, cream sauce was doughy. Rest of the meals were just OK. The manager and server were nice enough to comp the 2 appetizers and offer a dessert duo with sparkler candles for the birthday "boy". Unfortunately we will not be coming back to Milestones. We chose to come to this restaurant because we had a free entree coupon for the birthday person and it was in our neighborhood.

    Overall I was very pleased with my experience at Milestones. I dine with a party of 8 and one was a baby and they were extremely accommodating. The food was delicious and the bruschetta flatbread was one of the best I've ever had. One little thing I wish they could have done was to cook the prime rib a little more as per the customers preference. I understand that it is a whole piece that is cooked but would it be that difficult to cook each diner's slice as it comes off the roast? (e.g. from med-rare to med-well for my friend who doesn't like bloody meat) But overall, I had a very enjoyable experience and will be back again.

    My two adult sons. my daughter-in-law & grandson had reservations for Mothers' Day brunch, so no waiting in line, which was one of the reasons we chose this location. The staff were excellent, as was the quality of the food. It was a little noisy, but that seems to be fairly standard for restaurants of this type. My eight year old grandson was happy with the kids menu, which came with crayons & word search puzzle. We will be back. Thanks for making my Mothers' Day so special.

Pricing is similar to other chains... but quality definitely not as good. Caesar salad was bor-ring! Burger? might as well go to Fat. Prime Rib? Go pay the extra $5 at the Keg.. it's worth the $5 ;) But the bellini was awesome... best in town!

    Started with the mushroom soup but it was way too salty. Inspired Chefs' Menu: Ran out of the starter item I really wanted to try which was the Vietnamese Bun Cha but were kind enough to substitute with another item on the regular menu. Galbi Style Ribeye Steak was a disappointment as ordered medium but still really tough, but enoyed the liked the kale mushroom side. Dessert portion was good for the bread pudding but it was so dry that we were considering taking it home and steaming it as it lacked any moisture except for the vanilla ice cream which we used to try to soak into the bread pudding. Also tried the kid's menu which was good according to daughter but she said that the mini burger seemed spicy (could be too much salt)?

    Unfortunately, the service was quite slow and the orders got mixed up for half of our group. Also, a couple of us ordered the brunch combo which stated it includes fruit. We were expecting a side of fruit. Instead it was one strawberry and one small piece of melon which was what others who ordered a benny also got. The server said the fruit is fruit garnish and not a side of fruit. A bit misleading on the description.

    Went there for an early dinner with the family. Kids menu has everything we needed. Kids are already planning when we can go back. Food was good. My wife loved the Harissa Chicken with the mint yoghurt and quinoia pilaf. The Tilapia is also very good. A bit of a kick but not too much. Place was busy but service was good. Kept coming back to make sure our water was topped off and checking if we needed anything else. They recommended we try the desert shots. Was a great recommendation.

    We are pretty regular at Crossroads for special family celebrations or a Friday night dinner out with the kids. The menu and wine list are substantial enough that you feel like you are having a decent meal out and the kids love it for the choices on the kids menu. A glass of Kim Crawford and happy kids= a great family date! We have celebrated many a birthday and special holiday there and have always had a good time.
