I have to say this was our first visit to Milestone 229 even though it has been open (I think) for 3 1/2 years. Frankly I was skeptical about a restaurant which seemed like it might be nothing but a pretty view. Wow, I was so pleased to finally have my first (and definitely not my last) trip to... read more

Had a very tasty pizza here for lunch with my family. Well worth eating here if you are in the area.

We went for restaurant week and were very satisfied with our choice. The service was prompt and courteous. The location is nice especially since the Mile is done. Unfortunately our table view was blocked by their outdoor bar, too bad it would have made it a spectacular view of the River. The food was prepared and presented very well. I... More

This is 60 percent a nice bar, 40 percent a restaurant. They have no bread ("our kitchen is too small) but the location would dictate otherwise. The crab cakes were good, very good, but not exceptional. The sauce was warned to be "a little spicy" but overwhelmed the dish. The desserts were fine but pretty sweet. I had the banana... More

Probably my favorite downtown Columbus restaurant. Great happy hour with $5 appetizers (flabreads, pretzel bread, bacon wrapped dates, pimento cheese & crackers, pickles, spiced cashews) and drink specials. Downside of happy hour is you have to stay at their relatively smallish bar - which is frequently crowded. Good specials. Delicious brunch items. Great place for lunch, special occasions, or dinner.... More

This was a great dinner and a great place to bring kids to enjoy great food for everyone, but what held it back from 5 stars was service that trailed off during the evening as we were left waiting for refills. First, the restaurant does a great kids menu. It's not just chicken tenders and fries but some inventive options... More

We stopped in for lunch during the holidays and were very impressed with the food. Part of our group had the fried calamari and declared it excellent. My daughter had the "soup of yesterday" and found the Asian Pork soup delightful. The sandwiches were huge, and big enough for 2. The view of the river was wonderful, and I'm sure... More

WE went to this restaurant on a Sunday night with several other families. The food was good, the service was good. We had kids and they were a bit demanding. I am surprised the waitress didn't pull her hair out. Everyone we had been there with had been to this spot before, except for my family and we are glad... More

Just back home from taking wife out for Christmas dinner. Milestone has the atmosphere and food for such a time. Wait staff was pleasant and professional and food had great flavor. Suggest calling for reservations.

Good variety and quality of food, but the main reason we go there is to enjoy the downtown experience. The walk along the river is beautiful and during the warmer months there is a fountain playground for the kids right in front of the restaurant. There are also bicycle trails all around the faciltiy.
