Milestones Grill + Bar - Victoria
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...
Very noisy and on the expensive side for what appeared to be premade food, would not go back
Excellent location, service is very good and food is good value! Always consistent!
James was great, food was tasty but a little cold. It is a convenient place to eat for downtown and the view is nearly always good.
Nice setting on the inner harbour. Close walk to many downtown hotels.
Interesting menu items with just about something for everyone. Wine list is a little on the pricey side compared to other similar reataurants.
1 issue we had was multiple unavailable menu items. Running out of wontons can happen, but at 7:45pm on a Saturday they were out of mashed potatoes with no plans to make any for the rest of the evening. That seems just a bit lazy.
Overall I have always had good meals at Milestones.
Although I would recommend this restaurant I would not recommend booking a table on line if you have a comment to make as well. A comment like "window seat please". Any comments you make can not be seen by the staff there. I was very disappointed when I asked for a window seat and was given a pillar. When I inquired about my comment the hostess said they did not get any comment and showed me what she was looking at. After the second time of complaining and stating that I did write that piece down she did move us. The only reason I cannot give this an outstanding review is because I had to ask twice to be put at a window seat and not look at a pillar. The hostess was not happy at all. She did know this was an anniversary as that drop down portion is seen by the staff. I wonder how she would like to look at a pillar when it's her wedding anniversary.
James, our server was fantastic. He earned his tip that is for sure. He was funny, prompt, caring and it was obvious to us that he really loved his job.
I don't know how to solve the problem, but we were next to a table with a screaming kid. I was never allowed to act up in a restaurant when I was a child, nor were my children. As a parent, you have an obligation, a big obligation NOT to allow your child to totally ruin another's dining experience. Just allowing your child to scream and act up is unacceptable behavior for YOU and your child. If you don't want to control your child, stay out of places where peace and quiet are the expected norm OR take your child and leave. There is no excuse for NOT controlling your child's behavior - NONE !!
Very busy today and it appeared to be understaffed. We waited over an hour for food, and about 15 minutes to receive our bills (after asking). The staff was kind, but it was visible they were struggling to keep up. A great shame that the food was good, but was clouded by long waits and lack of service.
Really good food and accommodating for my food allergies. The restaurant was pretty noisy for a lunch. Overall, it offers creative dishes, but also some trusty traditional “pub” favourites.
Food, drinks and service were definitely above average and in some areas even very good. The location and the view are outstanding. I would say, there is room for improvement, but overall, it is a very good place to go.
The food was only surpassed by the outstanding service! Thank you James !
We went here for a birthday and were impressed that we were able to have a few options for a complimentary birthday desert. We enjoyed the super food menu. The view was marvellous. The food was received in a suitable period of time and the plating of food on the plate was well done!
Great place thanks. We had a good time. Food and service was beyond our expectations. I'll recommand your restaurant.
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.
My reservation was not found but otherwise it was good
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.
It was slow for Brunch Hour in Victoria so we had a table overlooking the water, service was friendly and efficient, food was delicious, not too heavy for a full breakfast.
Service and food was great! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and was a great location for a birthday celebration. We will be back!
Food was good, service was good. We come for the window seating.
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
Food was good & service staff were great and friendly.
Blinds on the windows are desperately needed.
Great service, food was incredible and of course the bellinis are the best!
Our waiter Rob was amazing! Funny, attentive, great input on food choices. We are going Back New Year’s Eve
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.
2 of 4 meals sent back. One due to allergy issues not addressed.
The butternut squash ravioli was outstanding and the sweet chili chicken was very tasty.
I miss the large ingeniously stacked order of Calimari.
we ordered steak frites; were told they did not have steak frites; they could replace it with the Sirloin at equal quality;
the quality was very poor;
Brought a couple not seen for 40 years for a visit. Talked and talked over dinner, finally were informed it was time to go an hour and a half after closing. Most appreciative of the extra time afforded our visit.
Had a great time! Food was delicious and service was quick enough for us to fit in lunch on our lunch break :)
Vibrant ambience, great views of the Inner Harbour, excellent service and food.
Celebrated the beginning of my birthday trip to Victoria here and wasn't disappointed. Lovely environment, good food and great service! So happy we chose this place!
Very nice meal, we shared spinach and artichoke dip which was excellent. We both had rustic chicken club which again was excellent. The service was first class and they gave us some time between courses.
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.
