Our server was very charming professional and accommodating. She researched the best choice for my food allergies. The meal was delicious. My dining companion really enjoyed his choice too.

Service from Sarah was excellent. There was a slight hiccough with the meal but it was solved very professionally. Really enjoyed the shrimp appetizer and the main course steak was extremely good.

We asked for a steak, rare to medium and it was more than well done!
The table was in the noisy part of the restaurant , near 2 tables with over 20 people. They did have fun but not us, we couldn't hear each other. Overall a bad experience.

Great atmosphere, my beet salad was delicious, mushroom soup was great; however my husband did not enjoy his meal. Apparently, my family told the staff it was my birthday, which it was, and they forgot the dessert.

All in all, it was a crowded Friday night. I enjoyed my meal, but might try another restaurant in the future and skip this one.

We liked sitting next to the window with a view over the harbour. We all ate something different and liked our meals. The waitress was very friendly.

Our table was ready for us when we arrived in a great location and fantastic views of the Parliament buildings.
Drinks arrived quickly, food was delicious, noise level was atrocious - especially with one of our group wearing hearing aids, although I know it can’t be helped with all the tables being full.

Overall, a very good experience.

Beautiful place to watch the sunset as you eat a delicious dinner! We came to Victoria to celebrate our anniversary and this restaurant definitely delivered! We had the spinach and artichoke appetizer (highly recommend) and for our entrees my husband had steak and I had the Thai bowl - both very good. They brought us a complimentary dessert for our anniversary and it was out of this world! Our server was outstanding and very attentive. If we are ever in Victoria again I would come back here!

It was great as usual, ordered the surfside salad, which is a favorite of mine, and noticed the portion was smaller, the salmon was the same and
the 4 shrimps (although I did get 6 a couple of times before) but the salad and other ingredients were scarce...the difference was noticeable and I
went in July,.also the price is now $24 and it was $23 in july and earlier this year, I think it was $22...so I’m getting less but paying more...that was my only concern

Our reservation was for quite early in the evening (5) so the restaurant was not busy. we got to choose our own table and the service was good. waitress was nice and friendly and the prep cook who brought our appies was super funny. I had the sirloin stk and it came with a tiny amount of veggies and WAY TOO MANY roasted potatoes. Be a lot better if there were more veggies and fewer roasted taters. Just some feedback for you on that.

We were a party of 3 adults. We were greeted warmly, immediately upon arrival and taken promptly to a booth with a wonderful view of Victoria’s inner harbour. From start to finish we received prompt, professional service and every one of our meals were delicious. Thanks for a great evening!

My family and I, had a wonderful dining experience. The service, meals and pricing were exceptionally great and I have now acquired an addiction to the "Wam Bam shrimp" ….to die for!! Our server was very pleasant, polite and informative with any questions in regards to the meal selections while being very attentive without being intrusive, a real asset to Milestones Grill Overall, I would definitely recommend Milestones Grill & Bar (Victoria) as my high expectations were greatly satisfied. Thank you for asking because without constructive feedback from those you serve, there is no room for improvement. Yours truly, Jackie P.

Excellent food. Our waiter was too involved in our meal. Too much like a Keg experience. I am out for a meal, not a conversation with the waiter!

Food was tasty and waitress was friendly but so so many screaming kids in one place ! The recent remodel has made the space super loud. Prices are way too high for quality of food.
$26 for a salad with grilled meat!
Not excited to go back.

Are on the patio on the main tourist walk through. It was loud, due to intoxicated tourist. Food was a bit sloppy on the plate. But the taste was pretty good. Enjoyed the loganberry lemonade, the happy hour red isn’t worth the $5.50

My only complaint would be the music from the bar area - it was a bit too loud. Otherwise, everything else was great.

We enjoyed dinner with a view of the water. We had a reservation, arrived a little early, and were seated immediately. Services was prompt, and very friendly without being obtrusive. The Portabello Mushroom Chicken in a Garlic Cream Sauce was exceptionally delicious. My friend had the Steak Frites and enjoyed it as well. For Dessert, the Ganache Torte was especially decadent, and the churros were quite unique with the salted carmel and chocolate dipping sauces. The wine list was a bit limited, but the ones we chose were good with our meals. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience and we would return the next time we are in Victoria.

The view is the best part about this location. We did an evening dinner to watch the sunset on the harbour, which was beautiful.

The food was mediocre, but nothing wow. Something typical I could get from a neighbourhood pub. You are definitely paying for the location overall.

Chicken Parmesan description states “Two Giant Chicken Breasts”. I have has this dish before and it NEVER looked like what they gave me yesterday.
I received two tiny (almost cornish game hen sized) breasts. Not even enough to make ONE chicken breast. I sent it back and asked for a new one, our server agreed it is normally not this small.
The Manager came back with a new dish, itty bitty chicken breasts BURNT! She then gave me a line about them weighing their food and if that is the case they would know they were well under scale.
What kind of a manager brings burned food to the table?
She should be ashamed.
Never order an entree at Milestones. Stick with burgers and sandwiches.

The food was adequate but this location needs a refresh. It doesn't appear to be very clean.
There had been an unfortunate incident in the restaurant just prior to our arrival but the staff handled it well.

Last night of our honeymoon, so we mentioned it was a special occassion. Not only did everyone congratulate us, we also got perfect seats in the restaurant. The drinks and meal were more than delicious, and to top it all off we received a free dessert.
The night couldn’t be better, thank you for making our last night in Canada so special!
