I and my guests had the prime rib starters, as I always do. I was dismayed to learn that prime rib is going to be discontinued after August. One of the best things on your menu and you'll discontinue it? Why would I come back????? Too bad. Otherwise, our lunch experience was awesome with a wonderful waitress who made the experience even better.

I always enjoy Milestones. The service is always pleasant and the food is consistently good. It has become one of my regular places to celebrate an occasion or just to have a meal with friends.

Jennie was our server, she was friendly, engaging, attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious, and I had the new “Show Stopper” for dessert, it was TO DIE FOR!

The team service was very good, as was the food. The only small issue was a mix-up at the hostess desk. The reservation had been made in my name for three of us. One of my party arrived early and was shown to a table inside the restaurant. When another friend and I arrived, we asked if we could sit outside and were told yes. We asked if the third member of our party had arrived and were told no. We sat outside for over 20 minutes before finally texting our third friend to find out that she had been waiting for us for a half an hour. Clearly a flagging system of some sort at the front desk should have been used to indicate that one member of the party had already arrived. Other than that mix-up, we had a lovely evening.

I have always been made to feel welcomed upon my arrival, the serving staff have all be very attentive, know the menu and their smiles and attitude make you feel welcomed and wanting to return. I have never been disappointed with any of the many meals I have ordered. I look forward to my next visit.

Our recent visit for lunch was less enjoyable than on previous occasuiosn! Our server was excellent- addressing our comments with hints to prevent future issues but, in fairness, those issues still occurred. Butternut squash ravioli ( a group favourite) was too spicy due to spicing of the pecans- suggested we order them on the side next time. Prime rib sandwich very fatty- suggested we order it trimmed next time. One pasta order arrived on the tepid side, but that wasn’t mentioned to our server. In review, four out of five orders had an issue. In the end, our server Kelly compted the prime rib sandwich. Will definitely return but think the chef was off his game that day.

It was a Tuesday after a holiday weekend so not very busy. Greeter was very nice and escorted us to a nice quiet area. The server was very pleasant and when we told her that we had not seen each other in a while she said she would wait for our cues to take our orders and timing. Very nice. Food was good, but we had to return the Caesar salad because it was very over dressed, almost soggy. Second salad was perfect. Overall a great time. The only complaint I have with not only Milestones but restaurants in general is the overwhelming perfume smell. I wish that there was a scent free seating area for those of us who have allergies and develop migraines from these perfumes.

I like coming to milestones but I always feel rushed out. Like they want to get rid of us. We ask to sit in the bar area so we can hang out and visit but we were still rushed out. Plus it was crazy expensive.

Celebration of 49th and 73 birthdays. 6th visit to milestones. Waited 40 minutes between starters and entrees. Chicken portabello entree came with blob of stone cold spagettini and warm under-cooked asparagus. Roast beef sandwich came with cold well done beef rather than hot med-rare, yam fries were cold and greasy as were the fried onions. Manager's excuse was that the steak dinner had to be redone as it was not up to their standard and she voided the cost of the meals, except the 2 alcoholic drinks. Very upsetting evening rather than birthday celebration. If excuse is factual, then all 3 meals should have been thrown out and started again so they are delivered to the table hot and edible at the same time. It will be a long time before we visit this restaurant again, if ever.

Our group of 5 chose to dine at Milestones. The restaurant was moderately busy but certainly not packed. We waited over 12 mins for initial service then 47 mins for our food. One of the people in out group had to leave a specific time and was therefore rushed to eat and pay. It created a somewhat tense experience unfortunately.

The prime rib is excellent. The other selections were okay but not memorable. The wine prices are high for low to mid-range quality wines. The wine selection needs expert opinion. There was nothing exceptional. The Royal Oak offers better wines for lower prices. Try their Sangiovese.

My wife and I like milestones very much most of the time we can’t get into Kanata one so we end up at the pinecrest restaurant we have started to notice that the food is way better at the pinecrest location Something has changed in the Kanata location I always get the prime rib and twice now the meal is not overly hot and the portions seem to be smaller. Pinecrest is not as nice of a restaurant but the service is still great and the food is to.

Milestones has improved since our last visit. The menu has healthier choices and the vegan/vegetarian selections are quite tasty. Our grandchildren cleaned their plates : a first for one of them! Service was especially attentive. We will be going back when in Ottawa...our youngest grandchild has stated that Milestones is now her favorite. We also appreciate going through Open Table to reserve given that we are out of province.

The food and ambience were both good. Service was initially quite good, but we waited 10 minutes for our plates to be cleared, 10 more for a dessert menu to be provided, 5 more for the dessert order to be taken, and 10 more minutes to receive two desserts. And then getting a bill took another 5 and was done by a secondary person since our waiter had disappeared. All told, we were there less than 2 hours, but almost half was spent waiting for dessert and the bill. This is probably what I will remember, not the good quality meal.

I was disappointed as we are always pleased with the food, my boyfriend took the new dish chicken parmesan, I guess ok not too much flavour compare to the Portobello mushroom chicken dish that we take all the time. My steak and potatoes were warn not hot :( and taste was ok, wouldn't order another steak at the Mills. Dinner took an hour before it was serve.

Overall the waitress was really nice and offered free desserts on the house because of the one hour wait.

This was our first time that it was that long and disappointed with the food, we hope that next time it will be better as we normally like to go there.

We will give them another chance !!!!
