The service was fine but my food was served COLD. We were going to a show and didn’t have time to get a new meal made. It was really disappointing as this is my favourite meal at Milestones and I was looking forward to it. The staff was gracious and apologetic but that didn’t change the fact that my dinner was served cold.

The dining room was almost empty and they sat two groups RIGHT beside each other. Food was good, but took forever, considering that the place was not busy.

The view was nice but the service was subpar. They brought food to the tables with our utensils, if they cleared something mid table they did not return a replacement. Guests had to ask for basic items that should have been mindfully presented or offered. It was not even that busy so we were surprised by the waiting staffs lack of service.

It’s shocking to me how Milestones continues to serve subpar food and has terrible service. This time the waiter messed up the order and the bills multiple times and just generally didn’t seem to care. On top of that, the food was not good and the service was slow. Most of us couldn’t finish our meals. The only reason we go is for the Bellini but honestly I don’t think it’s worth it anymore.

Sat on patio so nice to be outside. Beet salad was reasonably priced but very small. Wine as usual was pricey but decent. Service was friendly but a bit slow - think they forgot about us.

Was pleasantly surprised. I had been years ago and was not impressed but gave it another try. Food was delicious . Had the beet and goat cheese salad with a beef slider. Amazing. Of course started off with my favourite bellini. Waiter was quick as we had a play that night. Thanks for a new and great restaurant to go to.

Literally the worst downtown restaurant. We went there after pride, the restaurant was basically empty, you could see more than 20 tables that were empty but the guy at the door was saying it would take ~1hour to get a table. I came to open table and all the slots were open, I reserved one and went back saying that I got a reservation for 7. He told us it would take ~20 min to get a table ready and that he would send a text message when it was ready. We waited for 30 minutes and nothing happened, I told him there was more than 5 tables empty outside and asked if we could get one. He was extremely rude so we just left and never got a text message.

HORRIBLE PLACE.

We had to ask for someone to come to our table after waiting for 20 minutes and again when we wanted to order a second round. The food I ordered was really disgusting to the poijt of not being able to eat it. No refund was offered, even partial.

Very disappointing and we will not be back.

WARNING: THE RESTAURANT IS A TOURIST TRAP...
Due to the beautiful downtown location I assume they get a lot of tourists. Be very careful when leaving your tip. The machine has preset % for 18 not 15. I assume this is because they hope people don’t look that closely or complain about the extra 3%. Just seems sneaky.

Let me start by saying my review is based off the fact that the server seemed overwhelmed. This was not her fault. Perhaps staffing is the true issue.

The patio is beautiful! Great view of the city perfect on a hot sunny day. What’s not great is the overwhelming smell of garbage from either canisters below at street level or something that needs more attention with the patio section.

My husband and I love the Nutella French toast brunch dish however, the dish it’s served in makes it really awkward to lay your cutlery down between helpings. Looks nice but that’s about it.

No consistency with the dish either. Come with whipped cream only sometimes.

Service was alright. Our server was either new or overwhelmed because it took an unusually long time for not only our food but our drinks to arrive.

Washrooms are always dirty with ice cold water.

Management doesn’t seem to care.

Food, service and patio were fantastic. That all ended when I used the bathroom on my way out.

Stalls dirty, un-flushed toilets, broken paper towel dispenser and ice cold water out of all the taps no matter which faucet or direction of handle.

Maybe they’ve had budget cuts ???

Good food, good location, pleasant service. I visit each time I am in the city. The only issue was the latte machine, training was required so we never ended up having a hot drink after two attempts. But all in all, the food is very good and I'm sure the latte machine will be perfected one day.

I usually enjoy Milestone's but this visit for Sunday brunch was disappointing. The restaurant was fairly empty and even with several servers wandering around the service was painfully slow and disorganized, and the server kept forgetting our orders. There was no prime rib -- I understand that they sometimes run out but one of our party came specifically for it, which was not great.

As a previous diner at other Milestones locations, I saw that this location is shabby in appearance, the furnishing were worn and the ambiance wasn't great.

Good time on the patio for a quick & early dinner. Wish they would bring out heaters like other restaurants around them. Our server was great but the majority of the wait and host staff seem inexperienced and easily overwhelmed.
