Food was good, service was excellent... but the place had a funny smell to it that I couldn't pinpoint which almost deterred us from staying.

The food was tasty but the salad I ordered cost about $21.00 and was possibly the smallest main course salad I have ever been served in any restaurant. None of us could believe how small it was.

Always great food and service at this location. Patio is good but can get noisy with the planes, but that passes. Had guest from out of town and she loved it. Thanks for continued good food and exceptional service.

They treat us like family there. Know my children by their first names. Amazing staff “Nicola” and management always go over and beyond for us. We do go there frequently for dinner with the family and I never get sick eating there GlutenFree means as I have Celiac Disease

The waiter was extremely nice to my boyfriend and I! It was our one year anniversary - which I made note of in the reservation - and the waiter brought us over a cake which she allowed us to choose! Overall really great experience! Beautiful location as well.

We went to Milestones for a Mother's Day brunch and were promptly seated. Unfortunately the table that we were seated at was not assigned wait staff. After a long period of watching other tables being served a waiter approached us and apologized for the wait, explaining that he had just been assigned the table. After we had a waiter the service was good, but the long wait should never have happened.

I have been to this location on numerous previous times and always enjoyed but our visit on May 6th was disappointing. We had a reservation that had been made over 2 weeks in advance. While it was quiet inside the restaurant where we were, outside was very busy as it was the first nice day this spring that you could sit outside. Our orders were simple for a group of 6 - 4 main salads, one burger and a soup and taco appetizer. After over 30 minutes, we asked our server when the food was coming - she didn't even realize it had taken a long time and said if it takes a long time, I will get on the kitchen staff. But it still took at least 10 more minutes! We shouldn't have to wait over 40 minutes for our food! And then the hamburger was overdone! How long does it take to put pre-made salads in a dish?

Poor service- disinterested server, forgot to place order, no interest in ensuring all ok, replenishing water etc
Mediterranean Chicken came with tough, stringy, cold cooked spinach. When we tried to explain the issue, we were told by the manager that there is only one chef for all the Milestones chain and he made sure it was all to specification. She then threw coupons for free appetizers on our next visit onto the table and walked away. We won't be going back!
A simple apology have made a huge difference!

I would recommend Milestones Bar +Grill. The food was great. However the policy needs to change regarding how much Scene points you could redeem to pay for your meal. Also it was my fiance's birthday and the they didn't throw in a free dessert or something. Also when I contacted the guest services pertaining to the issue, I just got an explanation. There was no apology or effort from Milestones to have us come back so they could make it up to us. That's all I have to say.

Table of 6, we ordered 3 appetizers and 6 meals. Our appetizers never came, when our main course arrived we questioned the wait staff. Our waiter asked if we still wanted, not at that point, considering our meals were being served. 2 of the 6 meals were undercooked, and 2 meals were missing items. We advised our waiter of all the issues. He came back after speaking with he chef and advised us the undercooked meat is how it was supposed to be. We were offered 2 desserts for the trouble. When our bill came, were were charged for the missing items. The waiter had to leave and come back with corrected bill.
We have been to other Milestones with great service, not sure what happened here that night? The restaurant was also not at capacity which would have been a consideration for the issues.

The food was okay. The service was okay. The sound system was terrible! Overly loud tinny music(?) screams through the speakers, making talking and listening to others very difficult. Good conversation is a goal of eating out with friends and family. Very difficult here. If the music was even audible beyond the tinny sounds coming out of the speakers it would be bearable, but it didn't even sound like music. Impossible to make out any songs. I would, most definately not return or recommend this restaurant.

Their new renovation remains terrific, clean & bright, and the food is great! We had variations of the all-day brunch - omelettes, big breakfast, fruit, lattes - and it was all excellent, hot and fresh. Happy also to see a familiar face - our server Peter, who is always prompt, friendly, efficient, and courteous! Keep it up, Milestones!

The new décor in the restaurant on Dixon is very nice - great update to a tired looking restaurant. We had the deep fried cauliflower for an app - terrible! Coating was all wrong (way too think and wheat-like), did not taste like cauliflower at all, awful hot sauce drizzled on it and arrived cold to the table. Sent them back and she credited our account which was nice. Salads for main course were good - a bit too soaked in dressing but good overall.

Love the renovated look and staff were extremely friendly (in a good way). Great place for a casual or business lunch. Ahi Tuna salad - would be better with less dressing, and the pasta (cold fettucine) made it very awkward to eat particularly as this was a business lunch. Otherwise everything was great!

We enjoyed the food at Milestones and our server was very polite and helpful. I was ver disappointed however that we were not sitted in the dining area but in a booth by the bar area. The reason I made a reservation was so we could have a booth in the dining area. When I arrived I was told we couldn’t sit in a booth as the server in that area was already too busy, even though there were a few booths available.

Their new renovation is terrific and the food is great! We tried the trout from the seasonal menu and it was excellent. Our server Daniel was prompt, friendly and courteous - 5 stars for Daniel!

The only drawback was that the Host stand staff were very inexperienced and inadvertently cancelled our reservation. Frustrating.
We missed some of the old servers we used to know before they closed to renovate last year : (

I took 4 business contacts for dinner in late January. There were many problems with the evening, most importantly, there was no heat in the restaurant. No heat on a cold January evening. A server told my group that they had been having issues with the heating for over a week. Everyone in the restaurant was wearing winter coats. Our server was very pleasant and professional but he seemed to be covering at least two sections in the restaurant and because of that we had limited access to him. Another server knew one of the people in our party and checked in on us from time to time which was a help. However; one entree arrived cold, really cold. And another entree had issues with seasoning. It was beyond spicy. Another member of our party had ordered the dish on a previous occasion and said that something must have gone wrong during preparation. The cold dish was picked up and returned 20 minutes later, after everyone else was finished and no one checked in to see if our dinners were okay so that person with the overly spicy entree did not eat. The second server offered our group tea and coffee at no charge to warm us up a bit, but this was a really poor experience overall. I can no longer recommend this restaurant.
