It was my husband's favorite meal on our trip to Victoria. Best service we had during the trip and good was perfect portion and delicious.

2 customers ate the fixed menu/Dinearound town-those meals were good. The other customer ate the Brie/mushroom burger. The meat patty was very burnt tasting- could not eat. Informed waitress, meal was replaced. Thanks for that!

We had a very poor experience. It was very noisy and we asked for a quieter table and were told they were all reserved by regular customers. As we endured a lackluster dinner, trying to hear each other, the booth(s) across from us remained empty. We won’t be going back. Service and food was random.

We’ve enjoyed Milestones many times before, but this was a very bad experience. The food was terrible. We ordered a spicy Thai noodle bowl, and it was so bad we couldn’t even eat it.
We were looking forward to a long over due date night, and we both left disappointed. The drinks were even poorly made. The only saving grace was the house wine we ordered after our meal.

I brought a long standing high school friend here the other day to celebrate his retirement. We had a great server who was pleasant, informed, funny and bright. Our table was great, with a great view, comfortable with padded bench seats Our dinners, Chicken asiago penne pesto and Red Thai curry, were excellent.

The only problem is the noise level, which we found quite high. Our hearing is not what it used to be, and it was difficult to make ourselves heard.

One of the best dinners I’ve had there. I had trout from a special, limited time menu. It should really be on the regular menu.

Always a great place to dine
Great service and food is always very good at a fair price
Only draw back was a table with a small child that the parents did not have much control over.
We have grand children and love kids but not when we want to have a nice Sunday night dinner by ourselves

I've never been disappointed with the food and service we've received at this Milestone's location. The view of the inner harbour always makes it feel special and it's great for a casual meal or dress up for a special occasion. The special gluten free dessert on their holiday menu is amazing! One of the best gluten free desserts I've had. The gluten free pasta was also very good.

My prime rib dinner was very good but the food was barely warm when I received it. The waitress handled it well and it soon returned at just the right temperature. I really wonder why so many restaurants have a difficult time getting food to the table right after it has been cooked so it is nice and warm.

Thank you for an enjoyable evening celebrating my 65th birthday with my wife and parents. My only complaint is that it was so very noisy.

It was very good, family meal before a traditional event. We were a little pressed for time and the server was aware of that and was super efficient without being intrusive.

Booked here specifically wanting a Bellini... machine was broken. Sad, but not a deal breaker. My son was super excited to order a fun drink and get the plastic monkey or giraffe on it.., they were all out of all the plastic animals. These, plus kind of spotty attention from the server left me bummed that we booked here. A special family dinner out wasn’t quite as special as in the past.

Nice server but food came out awkwardly slowly - finally 2 meals arrived, then a full 10 mins later the other 4 arrived. First two were cold. Then the wine arrived another 10 mins later. Cutlery not on table. Garlic bread did not arrive with meal and when we asked, server said - yes, you are right, it’s coming. Weird. Should apologize or just make sure meals are complete. It felt careless and casual - meals are $25, expecting more attention to detail and more grace.

Service was really great. My husbands steak was undercooked but the server was right on top of it and took care of our group well. He really listened and had wonderful energy. Food tasted great! Fun energy, quite busy but it was also a holiday weekend and concert in town. We will be back, travelled from Nanaimo for dinner and a concert with group of 4

Very busy as usual, made a reservation which is a good idea for a nice table. A lot of families with noisy children, unfortunate as we would have enjoyed a bit quieter evening out.

Hadn't been to Milestones for approx. 4 months and was happy to say that the food and service remain in keeping with past visits. Tried a new dish (Portobello Mushroom Chicken) and it was very tasty. Others had Prime Rib, Seafood Pasta and a burger. All were pleased with their dishes. The view of the Legislature and Inner Harbour is tough to beat. Would go back again for sure and will keep it in our rotation of other downtown favourites.
