Ate at the bar. Bar tender was great and had an answer for every drink or menu question. Food is very good but not great. Decent local beer selection (again not great). Overall definitely worth a visit.

I have been to Columbus many times and decided to give Milestone 229 a try. Its in downtown Columbus yet seems like its in a totally different neighborhood. Its in a lovely spot right by the river with big glass windows and a very modern design. Our large party was seated promptly and our server was excellent. Drinks came out... More

Starting with location- great spot! The fountains, the river walk, beautiful sunset views.. We had a hard time deciding what to order because everything on the menu looked/sounded good. Great food for sure.

I've been to the restaurant a few times for different reasons. The food has always been top notch and the views are great. The restaurant is adjoining Bicentennial Park and along the walking/bike paths of the Sciota Mile. The patio is one of the best if not the best in Columbus with Views of COSI, the downtown skyline, the Sciota... More

First time visit. On a Thursday evening and full, but not crowed. Very nice setting, service was excellent. i was disappointed with only 8 selections on the menu. Prices are in range for a downtown restaurant. I guess I must get used to having to pay for everything including bread. Of the 100s of restaurants that I have visited in... More

The rejuvenated Scioto Mile has many "must-sees" ( Bicentennial Park Bandshell, Scioto Mile Fountain, View of the City, etc. ). Milestone 229 is a great spot to enjoy a view of it all. Sunday Brunch on the outside patio in good weather is a joy! Best people watching along the Scioto! Can share a meal and a beverage while hearing/watching... More

I came here for the first time on a Friday night (arrived around 5:15pm) and it was just in time before all of the outdoor tables were taken - note: they only take reservations for the inside, outside is first come, first serve. As soon as I sat down, the waitress was right there and she kept on checking in... More

We were able to sit outside, overlooking the park and river. The setting is spectacular. Our waiter was very personable. The service was excellent and food was very good. The salad was so fresh, I would swear that it was delivered just hours earlier from the farm! The desserts were huge!!

We visit here a few times a year. The food is tasty and the prices aren't bad. The menu is a little limited, so you will just have to find yourself a favorite. The view is what's great. There's not really a bad table. We have sat inside many times and finally ventured outside. Just when I thought it didn't... More

This restaurant has really nice outdoor dining under a canopy to keep it cool in the summer. The views of downtown Columbus, the River and all kinds of huge, cool fountains that children were playing in, made it a really enjoyable setting. The staff was great from the hostesses to the waiters. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The food... More
