All in all very good. The washrooms could use more attention to ensure they are clean and well supplied. The stalls shouldn’t be running out of toilette paper especially during the dinner rush timeframe.

Very loud. Service was fabulous. We had an early theatre time and the waitress was able to provide us with excellent service and made sure we were out in time. The mgr came over thinking they got our order was wrong but it was correct. However my sister ordered a small steak which was tough but flavour was good. I ordered romachicken which was delicious but pasta was way too soft. So the mgr gave us free coffee and dessert. I can’t complain about the service but would hope the chef will improve the food.

Our experience started out with a medium rating of the hostess (one of my guests is a hostess at another Toronto restaurant!). The waiter was very friendly but did not write down any of our order so consequently two of us had finished our soup before the missed third soup (after reminder) was delivered at the same time as the main course.

The restaurant is very busy and extra noisy but we can handle that and understand it is that type of location as compared to other more suburban Milestones.

Service was very poor. It was busy in the restaurant but not at capacity. Took along time to order, items were forgotten, dirty dishes not cleared, brought tea but no mug and then took so long to bring mug we had to leave for our show before drinking.

Great meal. We had a 4 year old as part of our group and the servers were pro active to bring her meal out first. They have a excellent kids menu, not just deep fried stuff, that is good value. For the adults, our meals were delicious. The wine list was varied enough to work for all palates. Our server was excellent and very friendly. I would definitely go back to this location.

My great niece and I stopped in for lunch on our way to a play. The service was excellent and the server delightful. She made great suggestions. The food was great tasting and presented very well. The restaurant took us a bit of looking to find but we are from out of town. I think those who live in the downtown would have an easier time finding it. Overall the meal was super.

Food was good/tasty. One order was the beef dip sandwich and it came on a round bun, imposible to dip. Water glasses were dirty and had to be replaced. Service was slow, serves seemed stretched.

we went to dinner here before going to the theatre. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and we were able to select a table that was suitable for our mobility issues. our server was polite and when asked his opinion between two items he gave us an honest answer. I did not think they had a very good draught beer selection but they are known for their Bellinis and my friend enjoyed hers. The food was good and the portion size was just right. I would eat here again.

We were at the restaurant on Saturday night, using Mirvish vouchers. I am unsure if it is because of that we rarely saw our server or because he also was handlig a big group in the provatw section.
We were seated for about 15 min before we were greeted by the server, he took our orders and didnt see him until we were half way through our entree, again for another 30min to clear our entree, did not ask if we wanted any more drinks, again, another looooong wait till after our desserts were done. Food was good but service that night was disgusting.

Enjoyed our dinner very much. Little noisy but to be expected due to time of year. Waitress Cathy was great advising us to order soon as a large group had arrived and we had mentioned we were going to the theatre.

I went there for my birthday, originally had a party of 10 but with last minute cancellations it turned to 6. I had put it in my notes it was a birthday and the greeter did not even greet me or say happy birthday she just asked if I was the host and said that I would have to pay a gratuity if I had a table of ten show up. I had to meet all my guests at the entrance because there was no host which is fine because it was late (8pm) but the service was just super unenthusiastic which I understand they were closing I guess but also do not accept reservations for occasions in the evening if you are worried about getting out on time. No one offered us desert menus and once I asked the birthday desert was just dropped off at the table.

My husband and I went to Milestone's for Date Night and greatly enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent and our server delivered great service. There were a handful of choices for the appetizer and another handful or two of choices for the entrée and even with the limited selection, it was difficult to choose as everything sounded so good! It was pretty noisy so conversation was difficult: we were glad to be seated in a booth on the restaurant's perimeter.

Slow on drink delivery. We had to send a steak back twice because it wasn’t done enough - it came back each time cooked the same but with more sauce on it. Another order was incorrect, however at this point we gave up on getting the right food and accepted defeat. Waited way too long for the bills to arrive. Redeeming quality was the manager who was incredibly attentive and outgoing. With many other places to choose from, I wouldn’t go here again.

The server claimed the scene points weren't working except by swipe. They did work with manual entry of the scene number. Additionally they claimed that only swipe worked on the payment card reader. They had to be pressed to admit that chip and pin worked. This is very suspect behavior. After being defrauded by use of swipe last year I have been told to always insist on chip and pin payment. Not very impressed by the insistence on swipe.

Food was to Milestones standards. No issues there.

We waited for water for half an hour. Service was slow. I understand that they were busy, but you're at Dundas Square downtown, you know it'll be packed with people, then hire more staff to help out! The steak was mediocre, pretty dry and chewy. I'd go somewhere else next time.
