It's the passion in our recipes that makes a visit to Milestones truly unforgettable.

We're an impromptu meeting place for friends and a cozy spot for date nights. We're familiar and friendly, but always on the cutting-edge. We're nights to remember and remarkable flavours to savour.

Our appetizers were alright, got the calamari and the bruschetta; the calamari was really soft and not what we expected, and the bruschetta bread was soft and cold, felt like it had been toasted but then left in the fridge for several hours. Mains took a while to arrive, and one of our mains arrived significantly later. The mains were better than the apps. Our server was not that attentive, felt like we were wondering where he was several times to order drink refills and order dessert.

Overall our visit was okay, normally we love Milestones but honestly, this visit was disappointing...

Right from walking in the door we where greeted and shown to our table. We did not like the table so we asked to move, they happy moved us we did not want to be by a door.. our waitress exceeded our expectation , she's cheerful and friendly very helpful with some menu suggestions, the drinks came quickly starters came right after, then the main course all in a timely manner. Our waitress checked on us to make sure all was ok.. overall we had an excellent experience and the food was good which helped...

Food was great and we love coming here! Our first round of drinks took exceptionally long and arrived after the appetizers despite ordering them first. This was disappointing as we were celebrating and would have liked to toast prior to appetizers.

I was slightly disappointed with my salad. The description sounded amazing but there were very few toppings in it. Our waiter was ok. He said very little until we were paying our bill and then he found his voice. He almost seemed angry that we weren’t going as quickly as he wanted.

Overall very good dining experience. Servers were friendly and attentive. Generally service was a bit slow. Both our meals were above average. Noise level a bit loud

In 2019 all restaurants should have some vegan options. Milestones has none. I am tired of paying full price for an item when the kitchen has removed the expensive animal based protein.

Very good service and nice ambiance. Price of the beets and goat cheese salad is very expensive for what you get. There was almost no cheese in it. Not very tasty.

It was Saturday night and we missed going to Milestones since the one in Cambridge closed. The Guelph location was very quiet at 9 p.m. Our server was quite good - friendly, personable, and attentive. However, he should have asked if we (a) had a CAA membership and (b) collected Scene points - 'cause now we have missed both the CAA discount and have lost getting Scene points as well. Otherwise, it was a good experience. Thank you.

We had the date night menu. The appetiser was disappointing ( hot dip). The main was OK. The dessert was very nice. The coffee was hot and fresh.

We have been to Milestones for brunch many times and have always enjoyed ourselves however going on Mother's Day they had a limited menu so selections were slim which was unfortunate. In addition, we had to send back 2 of 4 breakfasts as the eggs were not fully cooked. Everything else was over cooked - the bacon was so cooked it had literally no taste/texture.

The service was horrible. We waited at least half an hour before we were served. Even though the restaurant was relatively quiet, we were completely ignored by the wait staff. A few groups came in after us and were immediately served. Perhaps management needs to organize their staff better.

Unfortunately it seems the quality of this location is slipping. We were there using a customer letter with a $100 credit from a previously bad experience dining there, and the service/food/situation was just the same. We are often people to look for the positive and acknowledge when a server is busy, and quietly sit to wait being understanding of the contributing factors, however having had two bad experiences in a short time may influence our decision to go back to the restaurant. It took far too long (15+ minutes three times) for my husband to receive his drink from the bar, our food came out room temperature, our server left us waiting for our bill for 25 minutes - which we had actually asked for the dessert menu but that never came so when they finally returned to our table we just asked for the bill so that we could leave. Unsure why the standards are slipping other than it seeming to often be busy in the restaurant? Very unfortunate circumstances as we love the food.

its really loud and hard to have a conversation. Food was just average, not bad but not terrific.

For quality and quantity of food, definitely overpriced.
Waited over an hour for our meal to arrive, and server never came back to check on the meal or anything.

The burgers were ok but I would never order the 8 oz steak again. My mistake to get medium well but i do not think anything would have made it great. Disappointing.

The staff were very nice and attentive... however my dinner and one of my guests dinners was very lacking (Mediterranean Chicken) ... we both have had this dish at other Milestones and enjoyed it very much... this time the chicken pieces (certainly not breasts) were over cooked with a glob of goat cheese between them ... served over a half can of chickpeas with a small bit of greens and onions mixed in ... very disappointing... my other two guests were satisfied... I would not recommend this Milestones to anyone

Service was excellent. Attentive but not annoying. Everything was great. My only comment about the food is that my prime rib was ordered medium and was definitely well done. That said it was very good. All and all a good experience.

Our experience at Milestones in Guelph was fantastic. Our waiter Chris was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was relaxed and was perfect for a night out. The food was delicious.
