Good food, great service. We were there as a prelude to Christmas and just wanted to catch up and enjoy. Waitress was both attentive and gave us space to relax and chat. No rushing which was appreciated. Will be back again

This is a place that has excellent waitresses she provided all we needed to enjoy are self's

The management needs to know it’s a destination restaurant lighting is part of the ambience it is not a dinner off the highway fix the lighting and that is all that is needed but ..it is really needed we used to go here all the time and it was not like this before
Also some music then ok
Thanks to are great server for making us enjoy

Hadn't been to a Milestones for a few years but the experience was good enough that I can recommend it. Attentiveness by the server could have been a bit better but all in all it was acceptable.

I will never go back to milestones.

All the 5 dishes me and my friends bought and shared were not tasty, were small and were disappointing.

I understand that some servers are new but the attention to details was not a strong suit for the one serving us.
My friend got fries instead of Caesar salad. I ask for lemon for my water and had to ask twice. Finally, the lemon got to my table but she brought only one tiny piece of lemon. The food was great but the service needs a lot of polishing.

Was disappointed.
Appetizer for one person was forgotten.
Had to ask for our candle to be lit.
Long wait between appetizers and main meal.
Food was cold and on the dry side when it arrived. Presentation was messy.

Asked for a box to take food home- never came. We had to leave.

And to top it off, was told that I could not use my Ultimate Dining Gift Card - when the store’s name is clearly on the card.

Not impressed. Except for the soups. They were delicious.

My review is nothing to do with service as the staff were very nice. The ambiance was nice with cute decor. Came with a friend for brunch and we both got the vegan dishes (traditional breakfast - vegan, and rancheros). Both were saltless, spicless and honestly so tasteless it was just weird.
I would have been more gracious in my critiques if this was offered as an accommodation for special dietary needs, however these were dishes advertised on the menu! If you are veggie I would definitely pass up on this one.

We booked through OpenTable and informed it was for a birthday celebration. No mention of the birthday was made and at the end when questioned the server had no idea. We ordered avocado toast and it came without any avocado. Over all it was all fine, just not stellar or a best birthday choice.

Reservation wasn’t in their system so we had a small table in the middle, kind of upsetting. Food was very good and service too. They didn’t want to give us a booth even if 2 were empty for the whole time we were there.

I had an issue w/ my meal (my steak was overcooked) and they very quickly replaced it, and checked in to ensure that they got it right. The rest of the food and drinks were delicious too, and our server, Holly, was fantastic! We'll be back again soon!

Service was great, food was yummy....

My only 2 suggestions, get rid of the fake plants hanging all over the place... The only thing I see happening there is them collecting dust which will eventually fall into someone's food especially when your taller waiters happen to hit their heads on them.

Make sure the floors on the way to the bathroom and in front of the kitchen entrance are not greasy, Even in my sneakers things were slippery... That's an accident waiting to happen and a WSIB claim you don't want.

We, my boyfriend and I, went for our Anniversary. There were several things that perturbed us about the evening.

1. I asked for a 9 ounce glass of wine, the waitress brought an empty glass. After waiting for 10 minutes, I reminded her about the wine in case she forgot,she told me that it was taking long because “they can’t find a corkscrew to open the bottle”. Um, ok, it’s a restaurant I thought, but I waited some more
2. We both ordered the same meal, Sirloin Steak with Seafood which consists of lobster and shrimp, a side of mushrooms. The orders came with only one bowl of mushrooms, we had to remind her of the second bowl. I then looked at the Steak which had no lobster on it, only shrimp and the mashed potatoes were cold and had the texture of a baked potato having been scraped out and mashed very slightly with a fork. I asked about the lobster and was told that they didn’t have any. What!!
3. The manager came over and his reasoning was “we didn’t get any lobster and we are changing our menu, but we gave you bigger shrimp”. Again what?! If you are changing the menu, and don’t have the items to make what is on the existing menu, then maybe don’t offer it

My thoughts are this: if you order an item from the menu and they don’t have what is on it or a portion thereof, maybe come back to the customer and tell them. Let the customer have the option of still going ahead with the item or making another menu choice. I am completely sympathetic to what Covid has done to the industry, but don’t make up excuses or lie if you want the support of returning customers. Just say “we don’t have lobster but can give you extra shrimp if you like or would you like to make another choice”

Really disappointed by the CYA of the manager

Great service and wine but new recipe of Thai chicken bites not as good as they used to be. Plus in the bar they were playing a rerun of an old nfl game!

The hostess provided us with happy hour menu but the waitress said it is not available due to a game night. The same thing happened to the table beside us. I feel that Milestone management should at least accommodate what the hostess offered.
