Overall great experience. The drinks were good as well as the food. Not a fan of the Beignets. They were underwhelming . I would definitely go back again

The waiter was great. The food was pretty good but not outstanding. The churros were way over cooked and the mushroom soup was not very good. The waiter removed the cost of the soup and offered to remove the cost of the dessert. It took a long time for the dessert to arrive and it was a pretty easy dessert to prep and the restaurant wasn’t busy. The main was good (steak).

We came for my moms birthday. We sat in the bar, and were served by the bartender working. It took too long to get our drinks, and then our appetizers came and sat for 10+ minutes without cutlery or napkins. After the appetizers drinks were empty for half of the table for another 10 minutes. Every time we asked for anything it took way too long. I have been serving and bartending for 7 years and this was awful. The sides to all the entrees were cold, which I imagine being because they were ready in the window for a period of time before they were ran to the table. We brought cupcakes and asked them to be brought out, took another 20 minutes. After the cupcakes were brought out we waited another 20 minutes at least for our bill. Once the bill was brought out the bartender disappeared (yet again) for a while without bringing the machine back. I have been to milestones several times and have so much empathy for servers but the service here was terrible. We came for a special night and it ended up being painful. The only time the server smiled was when she told us this was her last shift...which made perfect sense. Very disappointing and frustrating!

I went to Milestones to have lunch with a friend I hadn't seen for almost 30 years. The food was very good, the server was attentive without be annoying and the noise level was reasonable. The thing that really impressed me however was that they knew we had not seen each other in decades and consequently let us sit there and talk for six hours. They didn't hassle or rush us in any way, which was very kind and compassionate of them.

Very clean restaurant! Server was great, gave us lots of time and made sure everything was to our satisfaction.
Ordered brunch from weekend menu. Disappointing quantity for ingredients in my omelette. Scant amounts of feta cheese and tomatoes and not much better for spinach.

Server was great - but there were fruit flies all over the place, including IN OUR FOOD AND DRINKS! A bug crawled out of my sweet potato fries when they arrived - obviously didn’t eat them and the meal was comp’d. Fruit fly landed in my wine, so couldn’t drink that either, despite still having to pay for our drinks.

Not what you would expect from a Milestones. Very turned off and will not go back.

I usually enjoy a night out to milestones, but recently had a very dissatisfying trip to this restaurant. My family and I went for my 38th birthday and were really disappointed with the experience. We just had received our entrees and 2 flies land on my food and one landed on my wife's drink. I understand things happened, but when I look above and behind and notices at least 20 flies on the window I got really upset. This is not standard for a restaurant of this class. This problem shouldve been taken cared off or we shouldve beetle sat somewere else. I called the manager and she apologized and were brought new food but it shouldn't have come to this. I enjoy going out to dinner but in the end I need to be satisfied with the experience.

We were very pleased with the service and quality of our meals. I dine at Milestones often and have found the Whitby location to be particularly wonderful in quality of food. Our server, Deanna was superb, providing just the right amount of attention to ensure our evening was perfect. Her suggestions were very much appreciated. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience.

Food took a good while to come out. The fries tasted like it was preheated I hot oil. It was exchanged yet still not better. The eggs benny were undercooked. I've had it at Scarborough town centre and enjoyed it so I ordered again at whitby, but didnt compare. Will not go back to the whitby location again.

Love the idea of Milestones. Food always great felt rushed to order though, seconds after sitting down. I forgot and ordered the tuesday belinni fishbowl....I dislike the glass. If I am having a drink I like a glass with a stem like the regular size. And paper straws and slushy drinks don’t go well together...straws fall apart and I used 5.
I never ordered a tea or coffee because I dont like how small the cups are.
I really only go for the food.

We have been here several times. Each time everything was ok. But this last visit was not ok. We waited a long time to get out food - when the appetizer came out, we had to hunt for someone to bring us plates to put our food on. We both got the wrong drinks but decided what we got was fine. Then we waited a LONG time for our main courses and the food wasn’t as hot as we had expected it to be. The service was sporadic at best. We didn’t know if it was bc we were on the patio, but we were basically ignored. We’ve decided to not go back to Milestones for a little while. This was not their usual standard.

Been better prior visits. Server was un-attentive. Took dishes before we finished eating without asking.
Music WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY too loud. Food was pedestrian and not fresh.
Guess it was just a bad day. Could hear someone in the kitchen chopping very loudly actually was quite comical.
Oh well win some lose some.

I booked a reservation using open table for 7. I got there about 10 minutes early and was told that my table was not ready. I sat at the bar with my friends and the hostess advised that she would come get us when the table was ready. At 7:10 I went back to the hostess who forgot my name and proceeded to tell me that she had already seated a Nicole. Well it turns out our table was given to another Nicole ans I had to wait an additional 10 minutes. Rather than giving a sincere apology the hostess said sorry for the mix up and I can speak to the manger of there were concerns. I would suggest maybe compensating the guest or if they didn’t have authority to do so to send the manager over without me having to ask for them. I didn’t speak to the manager but probably won’t come here for a special occasion just casual dinning because that’s what the service suggest.

There was a hair in my burger. Thankfully the chef didn’t charge me and I got a salad instead. That said, I don’t think I’ll go back.

One of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. Our waitress was absolutely horrendous: rude, abrupt, zero customer service skills. Food took 50 minutes to arrive. Waitress did not check on our table once during our wait. We had a movie booked after the lunch and were late getting to it. Waitress was horribly rude and inconsiderate. She mocked my 7 year old daughter who is a vegetarian, when she asked to order the mini hamburgers with “no meat”. Terrible experience. Will not ever go back to Milestones.

Went with my husband for a nice Friday night out. I ordered the sirloin steak and asked to sub the potatoes it came with, for additional veggies. When my meal arrived 2/3 of my plate was empty. The server confirmed the steak normally comes with 3 green beans. Because I asked for extra veggies I got 3 pieces of onion as well

The steak was good. Too bad they messed up on the sides.
Wish I had taken a picture of my plate. It was funny.

Not sure we will be back given the portion is so small yet pricey.

Restaurant is very noisey. Food is always excellent. I don’t mind going once in a while but not a regular type of place. Waiter was a little over the top. Our table had a food allergy and we felt like we should have just had the poor person sign a waiver or something. Very uncomfortable with how it was handled by the waiter.

Food was quite good, but service was slow. Appetizer and entre came quickly but we had to wait quite awhile to be asked for dessert, waited even longer for it to come, and it took ages for the bill.

I had used OT to make our reservation, but apparently when I changed the reservation to add one more person, the hostess said that was not possible as it didn’t show on her screen. Eventually, the nice manager came out to tell us they found a table that could accommodate our party. Too noisy! The acoustic guitar player/singer was far too loud, and with all of the already loud ambient noise, couldn’t be heard clearly. I would save that for an open mic night or something, but we couldn’t even have a conversation without asking “What??!” every time someone spoke. There are apps/devices which measure decibel levels.

I booked for a birthday party and was able to arrange for part of the bar side for drinks and appetizers but it morphed into sit down for our large group. Milestones did a great job accommodating us the night of and making some suggestions ahead of time. Thanks again!

Food was fine. Service good but restaurant seemed dirty. Table sticky may need refinishing. Could see fingerprints. Glasses were dirty. Maybe worn as well or maybe just poor quality or they need a dish rinse agent.
