Great service. Calimari was awesome. Shrimp creole was a bit salty for my taste but good. Nice ambiance and quiet. I will be going back again.

This was a terrible experience. Our server was inattentive in a completely empty restaurant. We were literally the first table in at 11:00 a.m. on a Sunday, yet it took 25 minutes for coffee and about an hour for our breakfast to arrive. Our food was room temperature cold. My wife's eggs on the 'big breakfast' were starkly undercooked and cold. The music was so loud you nearly had to shout in order to be heard on the other side of our table. When we asked the music be turned down it was lowered for about five minutes then cranked back up again. I will never return to this location based on my experience.

I was a bit skeptical after reading some of the reviews but mustered up the courage to go and was not disappointed. The atmosphere was relaxing...liked the music choice though the sound of the music and the nearby chattering were a bit loud. The food was good. I had wings, but my family enjoyed the meals they ordered. Our server was very polite and patient amidst a change in our kids menu order. The waiting time for the food and the serving was not too long and I love the fact that my aunt felt special for her birthday...they sang and gave complimentary cake. I would definitely recommend Milestones/ Scarborough for dinner.

Service was good as usual.
Two out of the five of us were served cold meals. Not warm but cold.
However we've never had a problem the other times there, so I'll give them another chance.
Usually everything is very good

Very disappointed that our server did not acknowledge we were celebrating a birthday per my reservation. He also kept rushing us to order. We had to ask for water and then he only brought one not for the entire table so we all had to ask individually. We had to keep asking to be refilled. He forgot about our drink order too. Usually Milestones are great but Scarb location seems to be always lacking in service.

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!

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.
