The only issue we had was our waiter did not keep our drinks - iced tea and coke- topped up.
We understand that it was his first day alone on the job so we gave him a bit of slack

I won't go back to this restaurant. The service was slow and there was a mix up in the kitchen with our order that resulted in us waiting more than 0.5 hr for our food once ordered. I understand that mistakes happen but an establishment that cares about its' customers would do their best to compensate for the mistake. The Manager came by and admitted there was a mistake in the kitchen and said she was sorry and our food would be coming shortly. It was the end of a bad experience at this restaurant that had already had a tentative start. Most of our guests arrived on time. One of the guests was a little late. The server came and asked for our order but we weren't ready because of the late guest. She said she would come back. However she didn't return for more than 20 minutes. Overall this dinner experience was a little over 2 hours when we expecting a max of 1.5 hrs. It was a good thing that we weren't on our way to the movies!

The service was horrible. It took over 90 minutes for them to take our order and deliver our food. Even once the food arrived they made mistakes.

We have been there two times during our stay in Kelowna. This time the service was not as expected - had three people trying to take care about us but service was better last time when just one did serve us (e.g. had to ask for tapped water and to get a refill as well - but we have been asked how the food is tasting by three people)

Everything was very good! From food to the server. The only thing I could possibly complain about would be the girl at the front who seemed to be possibly inexperienced and obviously wasn't in a great mood. Didn't impact the outcome of the visit however because everything was so good, it overshadowed the rest of the visit! :)

This was a case where they had a sign up in the front door with one of the menu items pictured. It looked delicious but it didn't say what it was. I found it on the menu and would never have looked at it if it were not for the picture. It was absolutely excellent. Portobello chicken with spaghetti as a side. Highly recommended.

I always find the bartenders at Milestones engaging and will return again in the near future.

Very few gluten-free options available and high priced for the quality. The server was not very accommodating to our allergy request either and made us feel very limited. There are a lot of better choices around Kelowna if you have dietary restrictions.

Had the New Roma Chicken entree. The chicken was good but dry. The spaghettini served with the meal was so bland. I thought it was just boiled noodle when I ate it. There was a sauce but it was tasteless. Had to add salt and pepper which is odd when paying $23 +tax for an entree.

Server was very kind but slow to serve.

Another guest sitting with us had the Prime Rib. Garlic mashed potatoes were chunky with undercooked chunks of potato included. Did not taste of garlic.

Drinks were great, Moscow Mule, Caesar, margarita. All very well made and delicious.

The place is loud!!! So loud we opted to sit outside. Too many chefs in the kitchen yelling stupid phrases to one another. Whatever happened to "yes chef"?

This is our first visit after some time. We were truly pleasantly surprised by the whole package.
The restaurant is well laid out, booths are comfortable. Service was impeccable.

The menu is excellent, good values and variety.

We were seated promptly. A child's menu was brought as per our request.
I had Creole Prawns which were absolutely delicious. My partner had glazed salmon that he said melted in his mouth.
Our 95 yr old mother had mini burgers . Just right size for her.
Altogether an enjoyable dinner.

I wanted to have a glass of wine with my dinner on this night. I love rose and I also like that a five ounce glass was only $6.75, which fit into my budget nicely. I ordered only to be told that they were out, I then saw that the Zinfandel was the same price and ordered that only to be told again they were out. I ended up having to order a Pinot gris at $8.75 for a five ounce glass and personally felt I should have only been charged the $6.75, would have been a nice touch and made me happy. Also our server was polite but mixed up the bill and another diner in our party had ordered the drink special but was charged full price which we didn’t realize until after we paid. Good dinner, always love milestones but service was way off tonight and disappointed that during spring they were out of two popular chilly wines.

I went to this restaurant for Valentines Day, and not only have they remove their menu and gone with a single fixed-price menu without letting me know, but they were out of prime rib at 7:30, and they were out of mashed potatoes... How does a restaurant run out of mashed potatoes?
if you're going to change your menu to simplify it for Valentine's Day, at least get it right.
This was really just a mediocre experience, paired up with a nice side of not getting to eat what we wanted.
Wouldn't do it again

Went for Valentines, reservations @ 7:30, waited 20 minutes, got seated in patio area no option to sit indoors, heater closest to us wasn’t working. No offer to move. All dressed up & sitting on outdoor chairs! prefixed menu, knew what’s we wanted, ordered, 30 minutes later, told that they’d run out of that dish! Only 4 dishes on menu. Had to order a sirloin steak, chewy, with garlic mashed potatoes. Came back 20 minutes later to say they’d run out of of garlic mashed potatoes!! How is that possible?! Waited another 20 minutes for meal. No apologies, no reduction to bill!
Don’t ever go here for a romantic dinner!

Would NEVER go back nor reccomend to anyone. Reservation #: 104903 My husband & I booked our vday & anniversary dinner days ahead for FEB-14-2019 at 6:45PM. We requested a private quite table. We arrived 5 minutes early & waited 10 minutes to be seated which was certiantly understandable as it was a busy night for Vday. We were then seated in the middle of the restaurant in the hall where it's the busiest (nothing private at all & VERY loud ). We ordered food and appetizers at 6:55PM. We waited until 7:30PM and we only have our drinks, no appetizer. So by now we have wasted 45 minutes in the restaurant waiting around for them to serve others coming in. Then at this time our host walks by, looks at our table, pauses realizes she still hasn't brought our appetizers. We ended up leaving at 7:35ish because we had other plans with friends for 8PM & we could not afford to have them wait for us as they were coming out of town. Before leaving I asked to speak with a manager. As I am expressing our experience, she cut me off giving excuses VERY loudly- let's just say others were looking at her as she was making a scene. I am a very reserved person so not what I hoped for. As I said we were going to go, she shrugged her shoulders & said "ok" in a very rude manner as if she can care less. She did not care to apologize or anything. Infact we were going to leave I said to my husband to "leave a five OR however much it cost" and she responds quickly with a lot of attitude "uhh thats gonna be more than $5". (Really?, no sh*t). She was simply very immature lots of attitude to have towards guests, and very rude overall). You don't know what people are going through in their personal lives, for us we don't get to see eachother very much as we work opposite shifts &we were waiting for this date for a VERY long time &very much looking forward to it. This experience was TERRIBLE, left a very bad taste in our mouth with milestones. You need to hire more mature managers. End of.

Super disappointed with our Valentine’s Day experience. We made the reservation and nobody told us about a limited Valentine’s menu. I asked for a medium steak and my steak was at best medium well and bland.
We have been here once a week in the last few months and every time had been good! Definitely not this time! Very disappointed.

We ordered from the Date Night menu. Great value. It hasn't changed much so new options would be nice. We both had steak but one was grissly. The parmesan fries were extremely salty & could not finish. Wish they offered garlic mashed or baked potatoe along with a few veggies. White chocolate cheesecake was awesome.

We went to your restaurant this past Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The service from the
door on was amazing, everyone was smiling and organized.
The big thing that stood out was an amazing Server named Jamie!
He totaly took care of our furure Daughter in Law as she struggles with gluten issues and he took care
of the menu and dietary constrants.
That stood out to us!
