Milestones Grill + Bar - Lansdowne Park
The food was delicious. They only have the Valentine’s day menu. Less choices but covers everything I wanted and was very quick.
We all loved our food and the service was friendly and prompt. a very enjoyable restaurant. try the Mediterranean chicken. delicious.
My girlfriends and I went for your ladies night on Monday this week, and the food and drinks were great! But our service was terrible. We didn't even get acknowledged for 15 minutes after first sitting down , and the only reason someone finally came was because we told the hostess to send someone please. And then the gentlemen who served us just couldn't have cared less, forgot one of my drinks, and just didn't check on often, we would have ordered more food but we were sure we'd be waiting too long to get it.
Always a treat to experience Milestones at TD Place
The staff were friendly and efficient. As a person with a severe shellfish allergy, it was frustrating to hear how there is only 1 fryer, so I couldn't enjoy some of the menu items due to potential cross-contamination with shrimp. I appreciated receiving the explanation and requested bread instead. It was so salty that I couldn't eat it, and the second batch was burned on one side, so I did not bother having the appetizer with my family. Our dinner was good, and I would recommend others to try dining at Milestones....without shellfish allergies.
The restaurant was way too loud and the music didn't really match the vibe of an 'upscale' place to go for a date. We had a reservation and were seated in a high bar style table when there were clearly a selection of cosier booths available. We had to ask them to turn the pulsing electric dance/synth music down at 7 PM on a Friday evening because we couldn't have a conversation. Staff were friendly but often wandering seemingly aimlessly with their tablets. Had to ask several times for a coffee refill. Food was bland and underwhelming in portion size and presentation. My side salad was the star of the night. On the upside- very knowledgeable about allergies/intolerances and made a point of make sure that I felt confident that the food would be prepared with care.
Excellent service, good food and drinks. The server was very helpful throughout the evening. It was a nice birthday celebration for my daughter.
After a less than enjoyable first visit I can honestly say that we all make mistakes but it is the way these errors are dealt with that makes the difference.
Vincent, the manager, made my second visit to Milestones a wonderful experience. He made sure that my guest and I were well looked after in every aspect of our dinner.
The shrimp are fantastic and the salmon is very one of the best I’ve had outside my own kitchen.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to my next visit to Ottawa to dine with you again!
One of our favorite “go too” places for food in a fun, upscale but not stuffy dining spot Great location, setup and pleasant talented staff. Good food, variety menu, overall comfort. Highly recommended.
Going away dinner with friends. I found my choice of seafood linguini to be dry and underwhelming. One in our party of five stated their choice was very good. The others had no comment. Service was acceptable. I wouldn’t return.
We were a table of 5 and maybe because not all people were there - no one came to our table until everyone showed up. We waited a good 10 minutes before being asked if we wanted drinks. The 2 running late (parking) gave us their order so we had been ready from the time we sat down to at least order drinks and apps. We ordered the lobster bisque which to our disappointment at 6 pm was already sold out.
Dinner was very good and the service once we were eventually served was excellent! We will return
Food was delicious - our party had steaks which were cooked perfectly with delicious peppercorn sauce. Service was quick and friendly. However, we had made a reservation and specifically put in the notes that it was a birthday, as we wanted the free dessert/sparkler to be a surprise. But it must have been missed because it never came, which was a bit of a bummer.
Great place. Delicious food. Awesome service. Melissa was attentive and courteous. Atmosphere very relaxing. Overall a must-stop at Landsdown for fine dining and a good time.
Food was good. Service was excellent during a busy Christmas Friday evening.
La bisque de homard était bonne. C'est tout. Le saumon ne goûtait rien et était posé sur un mélange de légumes fanés sans saveur. AUCUNE recherche dans la présentation. Ah oui, on a demandé du pain, on a dû débourser 1$ pour une petite tranche de foccacia (1" x 4" et 1/4" d'épaisseur) nous avons ri presqu'aux larmes (nous leur avons laissé 140$, quand même...Mais bon, il faut quand même débourser pour le pain. Allez savoir!?...) Steak en semelle de bottes et frites molles.
Merci mais plus jamais nous ne remettrons les pieds à cet endroit. Et nous raconterons cette fâcheuse expérience chez Milestone dans le temps des Fêtes pour prévenir nos parents et amis bien entendu.
Service was terrible
Food was good
Wasrooms were dirty
Amazing food, as always! I have never been disappointed eating at Milestones! They have a variety of options and can accommodate pretty much any dietary needs. I love their creations - I only wish they would bring back their lamb medallions and Moroccan couscous! :-)
They first sat us on the bar side but I had reserved and the girl had told me we would be on the dining room side. The girl explained that there was a group of teenager and we might find them loud. We finally switched to the quiet side and the young crowd was not to Loud.
The service was very good with this young fellow from Thunderbay. He was nice and attentive and gave us time for two person in the group to arrive without rushing us. He explained that the prime rib was now cooked medium to well. Better to know than be disappointed. One person wanted a striploin steak but they were out of it.
Two had the prime rib that they enjoyed. I had the sirloin steak that was very good and cooked perfectly.
The salmon was also good. The other two had the chicken and a Thai meal which they enjoyed.
It would have been nice to have candles on the table or a little more lighting. It was hard to read the menu.
A choice of buns or bread sticks for those who want it would have been good.
I can't comment on dessert as we were having my husband's bday and we had dessert at home after.
Great place for a romantic evening. Amazing prime rib steaks and good wine selection. Manager Celine is outstanding!
It was fine.
I asked for a reservation in the dining room. I sent my request Tuesday. When I arrived, my party was placed in the bar. It was too loud, too many televisions, glasses breaking, babies crying. What is the point of a reservation? As well, the service was really slow. It will be awhile before I visit a Milestones again.
Arrived 30 minutes before reservation, restaurant was lively and packed. Was able to get a table early which was awesome. Service was great! Drinks were always filled before they were empty and plates were always cleared right after being finished. The coconut calamari was delicious, well cooked and packed with flavour! The meal was to die for. Overall it was a very good experience and look forward to the next meal there.
Service was great. Reliable menu. Good locations. Enjoyed it.
Milestones has a good ambiance and the service is alright too. Drinks are amazing but honestly, the food needs work. I ordered the penne Asiago and it was bland (like, no flavour. I had to add Parmesan cheese to get some flavour in there). Oh and my friends and I tried the rhubarb cobbler, not the best cobbler I had. The desert has potential, but there was just way too much cinnamon and ginger on that desert for it to even be edible. The vanilla ice cream tasted better than the cobbler (which FYI: the ice cream was good, but not the best. The restaurant should consider using the French Vanilla ice cream from Breyers. It’s creamy and a classic. Can’t go wrong with that). Anyways, good luck making the food tastier Milestones. Maybe use the Portobello Mushroom dish and/or the surfside salad as an example of what “flavour” is, and how you can better incorporate it in your food.
Milestones has consistently good food. The menu does not change much apart from a few seasonal options. In general to food is well prepared and there are some choices which are quite healthy. The service is usually quite good. This particular restaurant has a sports bar section, so if this area is crowded, the noise carries over into the dining area.
Excellent service with amazing food. Came fast and efficiently.
Unbelievably bad service, food quality was poor and they did not seem to care. I have eaten at many Milestone restaurants across Canada and never had any issues. This one was pathetic.
Food & service was excellent!
My experience with Milestones was wonderful. Our server was kind and patient and never forgot to check to see how we were doing. The food was delicious – I had the Steak Frites. I would 100% recommend this location to anyone.
Service was great, got the private dining room which was great for our little group, food was great all around
Used OpenTable to reserve a table but staff didn't know how to log our visit so it showed up as a no show. Took a ridiculous amount of time to receive our meals. The noise level was so loud we could not carry on a conversation. The manager did the best he could with the 'in need of training" staff. We were comped on our bill for the long wait. The food was great as always.
Good service, plenty of food, we did the date night, was a bit cold though and our booth had a draft. Maybe it was due to blasting a/c from the hot days prior, but I wouldn’t hold it against them.
The service was fantastic as our waiter was great, funny and very helpful. However, the food for everyone on the table was sub-par.
We frequently dine at Milestones as we love the food. The new Wham Bam Shrimp is outstanding and the Bowls are delicious. Nothing on the dessert menu tempted me, though.
We came here for my husbands birthday but unfortunately didn't stay long. The waitress was super friendly and quick. While eating my brother found a big moth in his salad. None of us could finish our meals because we were so disgusted. The manager first offered to discount all of our meals by %50 but then decided to give us all the meals on the house. She seemed friendly but not trained very well. She did provide us with a $100.00 gift card for next time but were both very reluctant to go back after that experience. My husband and I used to go to Milestones often but after this experience we'll probably have our date nights & birthdays elsewhere. I did read the reviews last night and many people did say the food quality at this location isnt great which I completely agree with, at the other locations the food quality is much better. I wish I would have read the reviews beforehand. Its too bad because its in such a great location .
Love the menu, reasonable prices a very quiet ambiance which makes it great to socialize with fridnds and family.
Great staff, great atmosphere, great food what more can be said.
Good food and a great server but a bimbo clueless twit as the hostess. Good thing she was good looking. Had a reservation via OpenTable and four of us were stuffed into a booth. The place was somewhere around 70% full and we had requested that we move to an empty table beside us. No, too busy...right....the table was vacant during our entire meal. So clearly some management issues. Also found that the waitress' uniforms were rather tasteless..its not Moxy's! Again management...get a clue. Wine list is not bad and the selection of cocktails and beer also good. We enjoyed the Seafood Pasta; Prime rib sandwich; Chicken sandwhich; and Primerib.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal
The waitress suggested a great salad which was wonderful. Cant wait to return.
The food was delicious and the service was attentive but not overbearing. The decor was lovely and we enjoyed the cozy atmosphere.
