Je suis toujours surprise de voir qu’il est difficile d’avoir du service en français à Ottawa. Ce resto est situé à quelques pas de la colline parlementaire et du marché Byward. L’hôtesse et la serveuse ont répondu à un simple bonjour par un « Hi ». J’ai demandé s’il était possible d’avoir un menu en français car j’étais convaincue en avoir vu par le passé. Après vérification, non. Ce n’était pas disponible. Décevant.

My only critique was our servers (2 as one was in training) came every 5 min from time we sat down to time we got our meal...we would barely start a conversation before interruption...very friendly and efficient just a little much in the beginning of meal

Hi, service was good. However our steaks were absolutely awful. I couldn’t even cut through mine it was so tough. Also, I ordered the sirloin, and I’m pretty sure that’s not what we got.

By far our preferred restaurant in Ottawa. Great patio, great service and fantastic food. Calamari is the best! We are frequent customers and will continue to enjoy.

My husband and I went to milestones on Sussex for our anniversary dinner over the long weekend.
The service was excellent and the food delicious. We couldn't have asked for a nicer anniversary dinner.
Thank you milestones

We were all very satisfied. Somewhat too noisy when we first arrived at 6.30 but became much quieter later on. Only complaint was that the Prime Rib was unavailable which should not have been the case. However, the options were very satisfactory.

Food- there was no prime rib and it was only 6 pm- this is the reason for the low score.

Kind of loud, found it hard to have a quiet conversation , but seating was comfy.

We were in and out quickly which was important- we were going to the nac for a play

I cannot day enough good about the waitress, she was amazing, pleasant, prompt and very busy!

Ambience- I don’t thinks I would go here for a quiet date night.

Overall very good food. Excellent service. Disappointed there was no prime rib.

Should have listened to my gut instinct and had steak. Noodles and rice we took as mains were disapointing, lacked flavor. The calamari entrée was delicious and very tender. Artichoke dip was oily as were the chips served with it. Very noisy, but to be expected on a Friday. All in all, a nice evening with a good bottle of wine, but food lacked anything special. We appreciated the waitress bringing a delicious piece of cake for my boyfriend's birthday (attention to detail and what clients are saying).

We have been going to Milestones on Sussex for a few years, either before concerts at the NAC, or simply to meet up with family or friends for an excellent meal. This is a great restaurant for the excellent selection of food items, as well as for the courteous and attentive staff. This is definitely a great place to go!

Ordered the brushetta as an app. and it was very good. My wife's main was the mediterrean chicken, and when the waittress brought it to her, and had to be returned because it was cold. A new plate was brought which was slightly better but certainly not piping hot. At this point, I was already finished my main and watched my wife eat her dinner. Overall she was disappointed.

The waittress brought us a complimentary piece of cheesecake to share, as it was my wife's birthday but we could only eat, a small portion of it. We had tickets for a play at 7:30 at the Ott. Little Theatre and we had to walk to King Edward Ave., we were running out of time. If her main did not have to be returned, we would of been fine. We felt we had to rush so that we could to arrive on time for the performance.

We took our friends out to Milestones on Sussex and my husband and our friend ordered the prime rib and was very disappointed due to the fact it was 90% fat. We pointed this out to the waitress and she didn't say anything. I ordered the chicken parmigiana and the taste was way off, not sure if it was the cheese?
Can't say that i was happy with this visit and with the cost of the meal for 4 people it was a total let down.

Our experience overall was ok. We usually go to Milestones when we have tickets to the NAC.
Our reservation was for 6:00. We arrived a bit early. We were attended to very quickly and ordered drinks. We ordered our meal soon after. We didn’t get our meal until almost 7:00 which meant that we had to eat very quickly to be on our way by 7:30.
That was unfortunate , no time for coffee or dessert.
We like to go there on performance nights and I am always happy with the accommodations made for me as I have food sensitivities and I am always confident that I am served a safe menu.
Hopefully the service will be quicker next time.

Really nice place, the decor is fantastic and the so is the service. I was greeted at the door and the hostess already knew that I had a reservation under my name. I had a choice of two tables with a nice view. The rest of the service was also great.

A lovely dining experience. Friendly staff, a great menu and ultimately a great night out. Can get busy, largely because the location is so central and it was a holiday weekend. As such, may not be the best option if you're trying to eat and run. However, if you're looking for a classy, affordable, mature environment, easily accessible by transit to reduce the need for parking, I recommend it heartily
