“Milestone('s) Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

We surprised our University of Guelph student with a visit on her 18th birthday. Given the our good experience of other Milestone's establishments previously, we decided to go to the Guelph location for this milestone birthday dinner. This location did not disappoint; in fact, it exceeded expectations because of the fantastic service we received from Megan. The food at Milestone's is consistently good. We enjoyed our favourite appetizer, the calamari strips, and three different pastas: seafood fettuccini, grilled chicken pesto penne, and the Italian sausage ravioli. We had no room for dessert, but was pleasantly forced to make some for the complimentary birthday treat that came along at the end of the meal. Thanks, Milestone's Guelph.

“North America's version of brasseries - though no brewery”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

There are several chains throughout the US and Canada that work much like a French brasserie - though often without the table cloths and their own brews. Milestones is one such chain and the Guleph location gave us a very nice (Canadian) Thanksgiving dinner, at a pretty amazing price.

Being on the road for several Thanksgivings in the states, my wife an I are used to Turkey day buffets that leave a lot to be desired in quality (trying to make it up in quantity, I suppose). Our Milestone dinner was replete with all the traditional staples, but served in a modern variation that included very nicely done stuffing with andouille sausage, veggies cooked without killing the flavor or nutrition and lovely deserts. The service was friendly (without being Outback sit in your lap friendly) - highly recommend Milestones if our experience is anywhere near the typical.

“Slow service”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Just stopped in the milestones on the 16th of September
Service stinks - slow to get food order out when therre was literally 10 people in the entire place
When ordering soft drinks/jiuces for kids/children - how about giving out child friendly glasses or plastic tumblers?
We ordered one appetizer nacho and naan bread with spinach artichoke dip - possible that there were 10 nacho chips and 8 pieces of naan bread (portion control is in high demand here)
The burgers were ok... but holy cow on fries - maybe offering substitute of steamed vegetables or some other replacement
I have been here twice in the last year - and will never go back

“Great Experience”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Stopped in alone while in town on business. Ordered the prime rib beef dip. Came out piping hot - which I love. Bun was perfectly toasted on the outside and soft in the center. Prime rib was fall-apart tender. Service was good. Overall great experience.

“We go here a lot!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Wonderful menu and food is delicious! Service is great. A nice place with some class. Nice silverware, new and clean feel. Candles on the tables (once and a while they need to be asked to light them). The only negative is that the music is often so low it cannot be heard at all (maybe its not always on). I like that as part of ambiance so it would be nice if they could add a bit of volume.

You should ask for a table in 'the pit' where its darker and away from windows or else you may get a view of Canadian Tire (not the best but bright if you like that).
