We have a thing for stories. We tell ours through our fresh ingredients and our passion for the plate. Twenty-five years ago, the Milestones story began in Vancouver on Denman Street. Today, we span coast-to-coast, with locations in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Newfoundland and Saskatchewan.
It's the passion in our recipes that makes a visit to Milestones truly unforgettable. Whether you come for a favourite meal or love trying new and trendy dishes, Milestones is all about great food without the pretension. We're an impromptu meeting place for friends and a cozy spot for date nights. We're familiar and friendly, but always on the cutting-edge. We're nights to remember and remarkable flavours to savour. That's how we set the table at Milestones. Be part of the story...

We did give the restaurant a very good review. However, at this time we wouldn't recommend it to friends because there were many many tiny fruit flies constantly hovering around us while we ate. This was very annoying.

Nice to know they have brunch, as we were unaware! We were a bit disappointed that the server was not more attentive. We waited 10-15 min for our bill and also had to wait for the take out container and to pay, all of these separately.

We celebrated Father's Day and found the experience at this location to be conducive to an enjoyable time. We've been there, as well as at other locations, on various occasions over the years - enjoying brunches, lunches & dinners & times in between - and always leaving very satisfied re: the food, the service, the atmosphere, the cleanliness. Thanks to all the staff.

Plate seemed empty (very small portion of potatoes, 6 green beans and one very small piece of red pepper) with my not well cooked steak. Very disappointed since I was waiting for my birthday to get a very nice steak.

I like this place but our service was a bit slow. It took too long to get our food. The server was great but the food delivery was the problem. I'll still go back though. :)

The food as usual was delicious. Service sadly not up to par. Long wait to order. Wrong meal brought to my friend. Wondered why tea costs more than cup of coffee though that of course is not the server's responsibility. Will come back but hope service is better.

Normally the service is great but tonight not so much. Server never asked if we needed anything after our food was delivered. Had to flag him down for a round of waters and then when we brought water, didn’t bother to bring one for my son or a straw. Also, for our sons kids meal, we had to inquire about his dessert when we were already paying for the meal. Very disappointing overall. I could understand not accommodating if it was later, but we got there for 5:30pm. We decided to go there for my wife’s birthday and didn’t even inquire if we wanted dessert.

After discussing my food sensitivity with the server and her discussing it with her manager, my food arrived with the sauce that had been flagged as something I cannot eat applied on my food.
Although I was able to eat a portion of the meal, the charge was removed from the bill. I appreciated that gesture.

We went for my wife’s birthday. We had our favourite server David whose service was excellent as it always is.
Our shared appetizer, entrees, and shared dessert all tasted superbly and were complemented by a fine Argentinian Malbec wine. In all, a simply wonderful experience at a great restaurant that we have frequented regularly for several years now.

My partner and I do not go out for dinner very often as we are both retired and on fixed incomes. However, when we treat ourselves, we always like to pick an above average restaurant where both the service and food are excellent. Milestones is such a place: well above average with excellent service from our young man who was attentive but not pushy, exquisite roast beef served to perfection with accompanied delicious Caesar salad for me and nice crispy french fries for him. We noticed the horseradish did not strip our palates which we appreciated! Finally, we savoured our delicious cheese cake, once again suggested by our young server. This was matched by the best decaf coffee I have ever tasted. YES, we will definitely be back at your fine restaurant for our birthdays in May (which by the way are the same date for both of us!).

Food was lovely. Service was flawless. Was initially disappointed that the miso glazed salmon was no longer on the menu however the rainbow trout did not disappoint. Was hoping to try the creme brulee but they had run out. Chose the rhubarb cobbler instead which was great. Dessert was on the house for the inconvenience which was a nice surprise.The other two people in our party enjoyed their meals as well. Not our first time there and certainly not our last!

I have been going to this location to celebrate many many birthdays and graduations however the service was just terrible, our bills was so mixed up and the server told us to call the 1800 number and complain as he does tend to mix things up a bit, very very disappointed, far preferred milestones over any others

Unfortunately we were disappointed with our last visit to Milestones. We were treating my sister and her husband that evening to celebrate my sister’s hospital recovery and were excited to bring them to Milestones since we had been pleased with our last two visits. The appetizer arrived cold so we asked that it be sent back. We were offered a replacement but declined since we thought supper was likely going to be served momentarily since the wait on the appetizer had been rather long. To our dissatisfaction, our meal arrived 68 minutes after we had placed our order. The waitress did apologize saying the kitchen was busy. As well, my husband is celiac and the choices given to him were a chicken dish or salmon. He chose the salmon but there appeared very little effort was given to the dish - it was served with dry rice and over cooked vegetables. In the past, effort on the part of the waitress and the cook was evident - however not this time.

The evening was a disappointment for all 4 of us; we likely will not return.


, the meal took 63 minutes to be served

If you had given me an umbrella when I walked in I would've given a slightly higher score. I would have given a pass on the roof leaking except that your staff told me it wasn't the first time it's happened. So you knew it was an issue but didn't fix it

The Valentine’s Day dinner was great. However, it would have been nice if the shrimp didn’t taste like it was frozen. Especially when paying for a $50 meal. The service and all the other food was delicious. We will be back next year!!
