Took my son and daughter - ambiance was great and food delicious. Good selection on menu. Artichoke and Spinach dip could be bigger - ran out of dip before chips were even close to being done.

The service was good. The staff are extremely young and somewhat inexperienced. However, THEY TRY! That makes a big difference. They may not be perfect but they try which is far better than getting attitude. Well done.

The food and value are what keeps the rating only at 3 / 5. Value is definitely not there. The prices of the dishes are nearly on par with far higher end restaurants located downtown. Given that these are not made from scratch on site dishes with super amazing ingredients, you have to wonder about the price point. The food was also somewhat hit / miss in terms of seasoning. Three of the dishes we tried were very bland - like zero salt. However, there was another dish that was more heavily salted.

In terms of ingredients, I was quite disappointed with the shrimp and lobster pasta. Three shrimps and one little piece of lobster is pretty thin in terms of featured ingredients. There was so few ingredients, the pasta didn't have much of that 'fresh sea' flavour.

Would I recommend this restaurant? Yes, for someone in the area already and looking for a nice venue. However, I would only suggest it because of the location.

Decent Milestones as it was quiet. We went on a Wednesday for their $50 date night special that includes one shared app, one entrée each and a shared dessert.

I'd recommend the steak frites for the entrée. Not sure if the cheesecake was good because we ordered the ganache torte, which was overly sweet!! Couldn't finish it.

A favourite spot of ours; good food, good prices, good service, in last night’s case, outstanding service. Jake K advised us on everything from the wine, a bold cab, to the dessert, sweet, rich white chocolate cheese cake. He was efficient, charming, helpful and knowledgeable. It was not surprising to learn that he likes cooking. If you open a restaurant of your own, Jake, we will be first in line. Meanwhile, a thank you to Milestones for hiring great people, including the hostess, Ingrid

Service from Monica was fast, friendly and courteous.
Had the fish tacos - cooked to perfection with a light batter - awesome
French Onion soup broth was delicious, but could have had more cheese topping like I'm used from Montreal restaurants

Enjoyed a team lunch at Milestones. The service was good and we liked the menu and food quality. Our server was accommodating of a change to a dish but did seem a bit hesitant.
It would have been a better experience had the food all arrive at the same time. It also would have been nice to have server come by during lunch to see how we were doing on drinks.

After being at Milestones on many occasions (at different locations), we were very disappointed in the food. The taste of certain foods such as the Red Thai Curry did not taste good and was very dry. The Crispy Sweet Chili Chicken Bowl was very dry as well. On a positive note, the Mediterranean Chicken was excellent as usual. Staff could have visited the table more often.

My first experience at this milestones was good but my second experience on Father's Day was NOT good. Steaks were over cooked, mashed potatoes were served cold, chicken breast was in pieces and they covered it up with the sauce. Pathetic food experience

Been to this location a few times and never had any issues, our server this night was just not there. She took our order, all orders except one was correct. Prime rib with no mash and double veggies so we told the person who brought the plate, she repeated what we said and took the dish back. Another person then brought the same exact plate back so again, we had to repeat ourselves. Then someone else returned apologizing for the mix up and asked if we wanted something else...at this point we just repeated ourselves again, prime rib, no potato, double veggies. Not sure why this was so difficult to understand. When the correct plate was brought, our server asked if everything was okay which at that point it was but then we never saw her again, our empty water glasses were never refilled. The restaurant was not that busy. We've had great service there before with another server, it's just unfortunate their service is so inconsistent.

Portobello with chicken - spaghetti was very bland; chicken very dry

Ginger glazed salmon - salmon very dry

Caesar salad with grilled chicken - chicken very dry

New York strip loin with garlic mashed potatoes- potatoes very bland

The whole night was sounded with alarm.

An disappointed dining experience. Food played a very important part of the experience. I will not visit again.

Had a great meal. Our server/bartender was amazing, he should definitely get a raise cause he made the entire night that much better with his service and attitude.

This is my first time to this location. Reserved online and requested window seat but did not get that. It was ok with me, I did not demand because I don’t want to ruin our special day in taking out our friend who is Mom. After the server Lukas got our order and served to us by another severs, we haven’t seen Lukas, so whenever we need something we have to call somebody else. We asked other server if they can cooked more our beans as they are undercooked but when they replaced them to a new one they’re still the same so we didn’t bother. My steak order was ok. My salad was delicious the one with strawberry and pecan. My friends mushroom soup they said it’s delicious but the main dishes are just ok. When we finally saw Lukas and asked for water, he didn’t come back waited for 20 minutes so I end up going to the bar and asked for water, after a few minutes another server came with water which we don’t need anymore. The service was poor I’m not sure if I will go back to this location.

Disappointed that there was a prix fixe menu for Mother’s Day - we often go to Milestones and we were hoping for the regular menu. The choices were quite limited, and not on par with the usual quality of the restaurant. Two of us ordered steak - one wanted medium, one medium rare; both steaks came well done, with a charred exterior. The six green beans, single piece of red pepper and sliver of onion were not quite worthy of the description ‘seasonal vegetables’. The salmon ordered by the other two in the party was also dry and overdone. The one redeeming dish was the mushroom soup appetizer. The desserts were fine, but substantially smaller than the usual servings. The service was surprisingly slow, given the limited choices available, with no follow-up to see how the food was received. We will not be back for a set menu event, and hope our next visit has the quality food and service to which we have grown accustomed at this location.

yes I would reccommend Milestones, but do not order the steak as it was tough and of low quality aside from being served lukewarm.

I’m pregnant- I had ordered French toast with everything in the side and 2 fried eggs over hard.
The French toast was hard as a rock, that I had to use my fingers and pull it with my teeth to break it. The strawberries and syrup were not on the side and was soaked in the syrup. The eggs were sent back twice and both times they came back runny, and of course I could not eat it. Pregnant women should avoid eating raw eggs as it is not safe for the fetus.

Unfortunately my husband finished his meal before mine had arrived so we ate separately. It was my first mother’s day and a disappointment to me.
The cafe au lait and my husbands drink was taken off the bill, however I’m not sure why I had to pay for my meal as it was clearly inedible.

Mom’s day dinner. It was Saturday night and the restaurant was nearly full. Looks like the orders from half the restaurant went in all at once. Kitchen was completely in the weeds. Server went absent for 40 mins. Management was reactive once we got vocal, and did his best to rectify. Tough night, but usually no issues with this location.

Food was average and, in my view, over prized. They only had the Valentine's menu available for a set price. It was Valentine's Day and so service was particularly slow, specially getting the desert. I would go back because of the location, but I wouldn't go back on a busy day like Valentine's.
