This used to be one of our go-to places. But the menu seems to have been reduced. Bartender couldn't make a standard cocktail that we requested. Our wine was delivered 10 minutes after our appetizers (despite specific instructions that we wanted it with the apps). Food quality has also gone down since I was last there. Squashed French fries on floor outside our booth when we were seated, that I had to point out the server and ask that he clean up. Sorry to say this restaurant is now off my list.

When we arrived, I could hear a child screaming and requested to be put at a table that was away from the child. The hostess immediately brought us to the table BESIDE the screaming baby. I mentioned again that I’d like to be further away. She laughed and apologized, and brought me to another table which was beside another family with small children. The hostess did not take the time to consider my request and insure a comfortable and enjoyable experience. My boyfriend and I left, after placing drink orders, because the noise, lack of concern from the hostess, and lack of variety on the menu did not mix well.

Our food choices were perfectly prepared and very tasty. The grilled chicken addition to the Caesar was delish and tender.

The highlight of our visit was our server....Douglas. Do not ever let him leave you restaurant. He is a jewel.

We had an okay experience. The menu has changed. Missing a couple of favourites but I understand things change. I had the chicken bite bowl - it was okay, rice very mushy though. My husband enjoyed his ravioli but a very small portion. My daughter got the California burger. She looked for the avocado but there was none there. We asked and the server said they ran out a half hour prior (?) grocery store? Not a huge deal but it was a California burger and he should have told us as he did know obviously. Then he said he would take 1.50 off our bill (?). We don’t know if that was done but it was sort of odd. Anyway, not going to race back to be honest.

There were 3 of us. Unfortunately, there was a slight miscommunication with my order, (which hadn't been relayed to the helper). So, the two other orders arrived and mine came a bit late. However, this was handled superbly. Not only did I not have much of a wait, the main server was so nice and apologetic and waived the price of my entire meal. We didn't quite expect that. In life it's not so much about mistakes, it's all down to how they are handled. We left the restaurant feeling satisfied and happy! I wish I remembered our server's name. We did leave him a generous tip, and we will definitely return to the Burlington, ON, Brant Street location! Food was delicious! Thank you staff & management at Milestones.

Excellent service, server was professional and friendly. Food was very good but potatoes vs vegetables could be better proportioned. Desert was delectable.
Would go again and recommend.

Although it was not busy, we were sat in full view of the kitchen entrance, which was wide open.
And disgusting!
There was crap/food on the floor, that everyone stepped over or walked through.
At one point a broom fell over, and was passed by at 20 times and not picked up.
Server was nice, friendly, but we seemed to wait quite a while for our food.
The tortilla chips for the spinach dip were so salty, too salty.
Note to chef: you should never have to add salt!

Had made reservation and asked for table by window. Was taken to table close to kitchen but moved when we objected. Food took a long time and when arrives mine was cold. I had ordered California eggs benny. Avocado was paper thin, and so raw I needed a knife to cut despite thinness of slice. Eggs were cold. Bacon was limp. Others at our party felt their food was okay but none said great or yummy.
I have always enjoyed milestones until this visit. Very disappointing. Unlikely to return.

Our table was very close to the washroom and kitchen. Very loud, falling dishes and lots of traffic to the kitchen and washrooms. My meal which I always order was disappointing, my husbands meal was good.

A group of us went to Milestones to celebrate my birthday. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed. Thank you to the manager for personally checking on our table to ask how we were doing. I will definitely be back to try more of the great food.

My husband and I had a rather late lunch, so the restaurant was not busy. We had a charming waiter, whose name we, unfortunately, cannot remember. My husband had the Prime Rib sandwich, which is his favourite item on the menu, and which he almost always has there. I had the wonderful roasted garlic Caesar salad and we shared coconut calamari...delicious!

Unfortunately the crispy chicken sandwich has been taken off the menu! I did love it.

We go to Milestones quite often.

Mother’s Day, the busiest day of the year, and the service from the very moment we entered was exceptional. Our server was warm and friendly and did not even mention a word of how tired she must have been, which is a common occurrence. From the time our orders were taken the food seemed to arrive shortly thereafter. We did not feel rushed and having been to upper end establishments in the past for Mother’s Day, I would recommend Milestone’s over any of them ! Excellent dining experience

For the past 5yrs milestones was the place to celebrate birthdays, holidays and have our favorite meal. This mothers day was a huge disappointment and disgust. We heard profanity from the kitchen. Not just once but a few times. We informed our waitress and advised us the manager will be informed and she could hear it as well. We couldn't believe our ears nor did our child. My daughter's face just dropped and said that's not acceptable and on mothers day with lots of young people around. We noticed the music got louder after speaking with waitress.
To top it off the air conditioning kicked and had to put our jackets on. Yes we ate with our jackets. The cold air was blowing directly in our direction. Did I mention that our food was just room temperature. That means the food colder as we ate with our jackets on. We informed the manager and she apologized for the ENTIRE experience. She was kind to waive our bill.
WE are extremely DISAPPOINTED with kitchen staff, food and environment.
Manager and waitress were great

Restaurant would not accept my OpenTable rewards dollars and manager was quite rude. Was not willing to call OpenTable nor give any suggestions on how to remedy the situation.

Our server Ashley was fantastic. Besides the great service, she had fun with us as we explained to her that we thought she looked like Brie Larson AND she was respectful when we explained we were there to honour of deceased mom on mother's day. In addition, the manager stopped by tables to ensure guests were happy and the food was good.

The food and presentation was very unimpressive and was no where in line with what the bill would expect it to be. We hadn't been to Milestones in 3 years - which used to be a favorite of ours until we received poor service. So we thought we would give it another try - the service was ample however everything else that you would expect for the money paid, the food fell incredibly short...that visit cemented it for us. Never again.

We arrived early and were seated promptly at our scheduled reservation time. The pace of the restaurant was nice - not busy enough for a wait at the door but not so slow that people were standing around. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive at the start - then she seemed to get seated a few times back to back which made her returns to our table less frequent and short. There was a long wait time for our bills and drink refills because of it. This was not something within her control as the hostess sets the pace.

A celebration dinner for my husband's birthday. We arrived early for our reservation but were seated immediately. Our server (Campbell?) was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and we were all very impressed with her. The meals were excellent (as always - we are 'regulars'!). There was a large celebration party going on next to us, but both the server and manager came to our table to advise that we hadn't been 'forgotten' even though they we very busy. At the end of the meal our server gave us a complimentary dessert to compensate for us having to wait. She also brought a dessert for my husband's birthday. We all had an excellent experience, thank you for making my husband's birthday.

Was awesome. Food was fantastic and great value. I met a friend I hadn't seen in about 23 years...our server/manager treated us to dessert as a result and this was all before they knew my friend was 3 months out from a liver transplant. A real classy and friendly place.

One of our favorite places to go to meet friends and family half way between Lewiston NY and KW/Guelph. Great management. Great team! We always feel well cared for. Thanks for always going above and beyond. We’ll keep coming. See you again soon.
