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.

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.

Needs elevator from parking lot. Especially if im going to pay 10$ for parking!!!! Not baby stroller friendly. Prices are high. Scene card needs to be adjusted so that other people at the table can redeem their points. Thats obsurd that only one can do it. So are we all suppose to come in individually and claim it?? Won't be coming back to this location nor will I recommend my co workers or friends.

Our waiter was great, very fun! The food was yummy. I started with the flatbread - most excellent, and hubby had the soup - he said it was amazing!
Mains were the ravioli and veggie burger, we were not disappointed!
The only downside was they didn’t have the red wine my hubby requested, but he went with the waiters recommendation of the house red and my hubby was pleased with it! Too full for dessert.

We had a great server but the food (the meat in particular) was not the best I’ve had at the price given. The Wednesday night date special was what made it decent value

Food was good but very disappointed by the service. I had booked our reservation a month and a half in advance. I requested a table by the window. I had also phoned to confirm a window seat. My reservation was for 5:45 When we arrived at 5:30 they did not have my requested window seating. They had given it to another group when came in st 5!!! Only window seat that accommodated 6 people. Very very disappointing to say the least.

I hadn't been to Milestones for a long time. The decor had changed. It's beautiful as it always has been but the original with the photos of Marilyn Monroe, the Beatles, is still my favourite. The food was absolutely delicious and the Bellinis were to die for. Thank you so much for the lovely afternoon my friend and I had. The next time I have a Bellini it will be the little bowl 😊

Was very good view at the harbor location. We went for prime rib but they were out by 530 pm when we went there. Was nice tbat they were honest up front so we could finish our drinks and enjoy the view. All in all, nice safe somewhat corporate place with a great view. If you prefer safe, great service kind of place, this is a good option. We prefer a little more one of a kind, unique/quarky places, but was a good place to check out.

Service was good generally, but we asked for a slow pace but our main course arrived before we had finished the starter. The food was very good. If we hadn't asked them to wait for us to be ready to order dessert we would have had three courses and a bottle of wine in under an hour.
