We had a delicious dinner for four at Milestones on our first night in Ottawa. The food was uniformly tasty and we were all happy with our selections. Our only complaint was with the slow service - the pace of life in Ottawa is more relaxed than we are used to in the states, but even accounting for that difference,... More

We chose this restaurant as it caters for gluten free diners. The food was excellent, service fairly prompt. Staff were very friendly. It also had a great atmosphere.

We stopped in here for lunch after walking around and viewing the parliament buildings. We ordered a selection of appetizers (1/2 price day) and each had a salad or French Onion soup. Everything was delicious!

The service and food was excellent. Great location and stunning views from the barside. They had a kids menu which was good but i would rate it as average for bringing young kids there. Would definitely go back.

After having scouted the ByWard Market area with a place that matches our age (so above 30 rather than below), we had a late night drink (and a piece of cake) in this place nearby the hotel. Service wasn't very nice/welcoming. They placed us on a restaurant table instead of the more comfortable (and empty) couch area, despite our insisting.... More

Milestones offers some good 'signature dishes' which are tasty, satisfying and in just the right amount. The staff was considerate and attentive. A nice place for either lunch or dinner.

We loved sitting outside, watching the world go by while we enjoyed wine and a cheese & charcuterie plate.

Had the Mediterranean chicken which was served on spinach and chickpeas with goat cheese. Very good. Needed a bit of salt. I was very happy with it and it was gf! Didn't get ill afterwards so a successful lunch.

Ate here on a trip to Ottawa. First of all, why on earth would you have your bar overlooking the Ottawa Sussex Dr street scene, and your restaurant in back with no windows, dark lighting and loud music? Is this a club or a restaurant? Our server seemed disinterested. She brought my husband completely the wrong thing and then he... More
