Bellini's great. Happy hour choice a bit limited. Steak too tiny. Not enough Veggies. Scrawney asparagus. But ambience and service was good. Will come again for sure.

Some of my favourite dishes are no longer on the menu (ie., spicy Cajun shrimp and teriyaki chicken rice bowl). I was disappointed about this as they are one of the reasons my friends and I choose Milestones. Hopefully they make a reappearance as this will certainly influence our restaurant choice.

You go to Milestone's because it's consistent, and you know what to expect, and is generally good.
This visit was even better, delicious food, and our server Andrew was outstanding, friendly & genuine. I'll be back.

This was the first time we had a full meal at Milestones. We liked the atmosphere of warm light and floor to ceiling windows (although we would have liked to have been seated somewhere with a view). We both went for the California Burger and thought it was very tasty. Our server was very attentive and pro. She honoured our requests: got me some version of the now discontinued Parm Fries (why would you discontinue such a yummy in-demand item, Milestones?) and brought us a side of dijon mustard for the burgers (we still find it bizarre that no restaurants/pubs/cafés serves burgers with mustard). Our drinks and food came quickly. The white chocolate cheesecake for dessert was creamy deliciousness. Our only complaint, and this is kind of a big one, is that by the time we got home, we were both feeling sleepy and thirsty. We figure that there's probably MSG in the burger sauce or on the fries, which isn't necessary at all – they have plenty of flavour on their own. MSG ruins a nice meal.

It was a birthday and the staff very kindly accommodated us when out numbers were higher than open table accepts.
They even sang me happy birthday and brought me a chocolate torte with a sparkler. My granddaughters loved that.

Would only recommend for the deals. The calamari was very strange... and not in a good way. Never seen calamari so... big? and bland? The chicken bites were eh. The spinach dip as always was delicious. Table next to us was screaming with laughter but you can't do much about that. Was not busy at all but took a while to get my drink.
Had a good time.

I filled out something on the Internet to get a free appetizer-days ago.
I have yet to get it. I wanted to use it when we went to Milestones on Sunday.
I told the receptionist and our waiter. the receptionist said she was sure the waiter would do something
about it but he said he couldn't.
Plus there was very little appealing to us on the menu like chicken teryaki and they took of ahi tuna dishes. They change the menu too much.

Excellent service. Booking through OpenTable made booking reservation so much easier. Server provided excellent recommendations for food selection. Large platters for exceptional Price. We would definitely recommend & will be coming back. Taste of food, fast delivery, great ambiance. Just loved the experience.

Not happy with the service or seating. We went there to celebrate our grandma's birthday. We had a group of 8 and was squished into a booth. It was not a busy night for a Saturday. Waiter was not attentive, had to flag him down several times to order and get refills (which he forgot about). Something was floating in the our water, utensils were not clean and when the waiter refilled our water, the spout was dipped into our cup (very unhygienic). Hard to eat our food as we had no room for our arms so took most of the food home to eat. They did provide a free dessert for my grandma which was nice, however the overall experience was not enjoyable. Quite disappointing as there aren't many Milestones around and it was one of my favorite restaurants.

Vegetarian items are indicated, but there are no vegan options on the menu. A small group of us went there for lunch. OpenTable reservation was effortless. I had the Garden Burger (very messy and tasty), and yam fries. I'd rather not have a screen (some pro sports event playing) in my line of sight, especially in a higher-end ($$) restaurant. Staff were nice.

The spinach and artichoke dip was great! Steak was cooked exactly as asked. Had to remind the server for a drink we ordered, but overall server was great. Food was timely, server made personal recommendations. We had a great meal and will definitely go back.

OK for what it is, a bit cookie cutter as it is a chain restaurant. Awful beer selection in a city where craft beer rules. We had a great server though, lots of fun. My spicy thai bowl needed more spice, and some more peanut sauce would have helped. Maybe I should have asked for more, but they did bring Siracha sauce.

Well, we’ve had a number of very disappointing visits to this location. However, on this visit, the service was excellent. We had a waiter I hadn’t seen before. Started going to Milestone’s when it first opened on Denman and it’s only my memory of good food and service back then that’s kept me coming. My experience of the servers in this location is that they start out fine but have no follow through.

The service was abysmal. It started out well enough but deteriorated rapidly. There was a complete lack of follow up by the server. We had to ask other staff to get things that were ordered but never delivered. Most disappointing.

We came hungry and really wanted a good steak and for $28 dollars we expected a perfect sirloin but it came to the table not even warm. The meat was cold and tough. I can barely chew through it. We tried looking for the server but he was not in sight. He was charming and pleasant but the food was not up to par. We’ve had amazing steaks at Milestones before but this time, it was a miss.

Milestones service exceeded our expectations. They took longer with our meals than typical. However, we were busy chatting so we didn’t notice. Without any complaints they apologized for the delay and did not charge us at all! We appreciated their service and will definitely go back.

My steak came out a little on the burnt, very dry side but when Matt came to check on us, I mentioned it to him & he offered to get my whole plate re-done. the mashed potatoes & veggies were fine so I only wanted the steak re-done. when it came out again it was perfectly juicy & delicious! calarami appy was so tender & the Showstopper dessert, you have to have it... Matt was very friendly and gracious, lovely gentlemen and an total asset to Milestones! thank you so much!

Seated right away with reservation. Waitress was attentive and patient (group of 7). Food was okay. (My friend and I ordered the same item but mine had a lot of sauce whereas hers barely had any). Calamari was also less crunchier than expected. Yam Frites were loved by my whole table though. Bellinis were also loved. When our server got off work, no other server replaced her, so it was hard getting things done. Overall though, would come again.

Did not bother to do the special request I asked for during the reservation. It was supposed to be a surprise for my s/o. Server didn’t seem happy serving us, didn’t deserve the tip I left. Cauliflower bites were cold.

Great food, great service, great ambiance!
My friend had a small suggestion with her food, and when she addressed it with the server he got the manager over right away, even though she insisted it wasn't a big deal! Great that they got on it right away, although it was a small matter.
