The reservation was for 7:15 p.m and I was not seated until 7:50. They said opentable is not reliable because they don't know about their other reservations. I highly recommend you drop this restaurant from your roster.

Even with a reservation, we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Staff was very apologetic. It's a very loud restaurant - already loud music volume was turned up as we waited to be seated.

The service was poor...despite having a reservation we waited around 5 minutes to be seated in a near empty restaurant while the "hostess" disappeared. Our waiter was inattentive at best and several times we had to ask other staff to locate him. The food however was excellent and that alone would bring me back (hopefully on a better night for the serving staff).

I visited Milestones, Scarborough location, on Jan. 1 for lunch with relatives who were visiting from the U.S., and we were all extremely happy with the friendly service and the delicious food. There were three of us who made different choices on the menu and we were all delighted with our dishes.

My husband and his colleagues had their Xmas dinner at the same location earlier in December and they all had nothing but praise for the menu and the service. Any time the occasion calls for a warm and cozy environment where the food is good and the ambience is conducive to good conversation, this restaurant will be our # 1 choice.

Overall was just okay.
Was disappointed, we went for dinner at 6 and this location was out of the lobster bisque soup and Stella.
We ordered 2 prime rib and ordered medium rare and came well done. The churro dessert was awful, too overcooked was very brown and the cobbler was so tiny.
Ive been before a few times and had a way better experience. Only good thing this time was our waitress who was great.

By far the absolute worst Milestones I have ever been to, and I've been to a few. The restaurant wasn't as busy as we had expected but the service was extremely slow. It took about 45 mins before we even got our apps with no explanation or ETA from our waitress or anything. Alcohol was spilled on one of us.....it was a whole laundry list of this that went wrong at this location tonight. No one checked to see how our food was once we got it. We also ordered a bottle of prosecco with our meal, it came, glasses were dirty and the prosecco sat unopened.....were we supposed to open it ourselves? We waited to see how long before someone came to open it and no one did. That's not even everything but I honestly do not have the time to write everything down. Needless to say, this Milestones will not be seeing me ever again. The only pleasant person we dealt with here was the hostess. Disappointed to say the least.

I took my family to Milestones on Christmas Eve for dinner. We had booked about 1.5 weeks in advance. The restaurant was full and they were severely understaffed. It took about 30 minutes to take our order, about 30 minutes after that our drinks and appetizers arrived and about another hour for our dinner to arrive. One person in our group ordered a steak, medium well. It came out almost rare. After about 20 minutes locating the server, they offered another one, but given it took 1 hour for our main courses to arrive, we declined. It was good that they took that off the bill. Our server was great and did what he could given the shortage of staff (he said they needed at least 5 more staff). So, the place is good if you are not there for a holiday meal.

I am giving this poor rating based on the poor service provided by Open Table. Not only did the restaurant not have a record of my reservation but there is no venue for providing feedback. The link in the site goes no where. Milestones experience was good but I avoid using Open Table in the future.

Ordered the Cajun shrimp streak and was recommended medium rare. When I recieved it, it was rare. Dead red and very bloody. When asked for a new steak, they refired the same steak which left it meat dry with no moisture, the texture was hard to chew and the chef covered the steak with the sauce which left it oveflowing and quite salty. Overall, I alway comes to milestones because it was the best restaurant around Scarborough within a 10 min drive. However, after this experience I’m quite reluctant on coming back.

We were there with our 2 young children. Service started out really good; kids were served first but our meals came out really late and food was barely warm. Restaurant manager did her best to make up for it and for that we may give it another chance. Unfortunately it was not a good dining experience for us.

THEY SMOTHERED MY $35.00 steak with the same mystery sauce my mother got for her cajan shrimp! It wasn't a lobster sauce for the surf n'turf and I got 5 small green beans ! And then they ran out of white chocolate cheese cake for my Nephew's Birthday! It's NOT like the Milestones I remember at Yorkdale. . .taking my Mother out fro her birthday! OVERPRICED MEDIOCER FOOD!

Why is it that it is always a favourite menu item that gets removed from restaurant menus. As is usual for me, this restaurant has removed the lamb dish that I loved. It was kinda pricey for what is was, but it was also worth buying as I loved the taste. At least for once it wasn't lamb curry.
So, even if other restaurants remove items from their menus, and never put them back, please return the lamb dish. At least as a special.
Thanks.

We booked a table about a month before, but unfortunately we were seated in the bar area, which had extremely loud music. We asked to move to the dining area, but there were no available tables. At least the Manager assisted by turning the music down a bit, and offered a complimentary appetizer. Service was good.

I enjoyed my dinner the other night. I had the curry chicken, but there was not enough chicken, not to mention a bit tough. My friends all enjoyed their meals. It's always nice to try something different each time you go. Each time I've been it has been fairly consistent . So all in all I'd go again.

While the noise level was a bit high making conversation a challenge, ambience is quite acceptable. Serving staff were most pleasant, helpful and efficient. Menu choices quite varied and we ordered salads, pastas, and burger entrees, all came hot and were very tasty. We were pleased with every item. Would certainly recommend this place.

No question about service. Servers were very attentive, kind, and helpful. My party loved their meals. But those of us who has burgers were slightly disappointed. Too salty and burnt, but it may have just been this one unfortunate time. I’ve had Milestones burgers before and they were fine. Restaurant is a nice option if you want to sit down after shopping and want a filling meal. Portions definitely generous too.

would've gotten better reviews. I ordered a steak and when it was brought out to me, there was no cutlery. I asked for cutlery and she gave me a butter knife. My steak would've gotten cold if I had to wait for the hostess to pass by again, so I used the butter knife. Then someone came along when I was about finished my meal to ask how it was going, and she noticed I had a butter knife and I told her I went this far with it, she didn't need to get me a steak knife.
Don't get me wrong, this was the ONLY time I had issues, each time I have gone there I have had amazing service and an amazing hostess, I forgot his name.
Just this time we had a different hostess, so service to me wasn't moderate. I had to flag her down for everything, where the other guy was always on point!
