Visited Milestones for the third time last evening. Once again perfect food, atmosphere and service. My husband had the steak with shrimp, I had a Thai inspired chicken with greens and Jasmine rice ( loved it, not too spicy).

Went for supper and sat in the bar area as it is much brighter than the dining room. Many patrons in the area. Location is great with street view. What they have done with the old stone building is amazing. Old walls and structure have been retained and displayed. Lighting and décor, though modern, really highlight the area. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful with food choices. Our selections were brought out as requested, no rush was emphasized. Wait staff waited for us to signal when we wanted our food to be served. Food was well prepared and presented and was very tasty. Would definitively return.

I'm not usually a fan of chain restaurants. In fact, I avoid them whenever possible. But my husband and I were looking for a new place to have dinner in Kingston. On top of that, I was motivated to go there because the restaurant had made such efforts to clean up its exterior after a long, hard winter--I wanted to reward that work!

We made a reservation, and my husband asked for a quiet table. It's a very big restaurant, and the size and noise are almost the only drawback (for those who actually want to engage in conversation). We were put in a booth near the back of the restaurant, but the wall between us and the folks at the next table was not very high. This was a little bit of a problem when their server (not our own) talked to his clients: He had a very booming, hearty voice, and we unwittingly heard every single word.

Also, wanting a quieter location seems to mean you don't get to eat in the front room, by the windows. This may not be a problem in the winter, when it's dark at dinner time and there isn't much to look at, but it may be more of an issue in the spring and summer, when being near a window may be more important.

In any case, other than our location, everything else about the meal was close to superb. I'm amazed I'm saying this about a chain restaurant.

At the beginning, our server suggested to us a kind of taster's menu of three 3-ounce glasses of wine, for $15. You could get any three of the wines on the menu. Though this was tempting, we each preferred to stick with one kind of wine throughout the dinner. I had nine-ounce glass of a very nice light, crisp Vino Verde, which I really enjoyed.

We ordered a goat-cheese, baked garlic, and flat bread as a shared appetizer. It was excellent. The cheese had been warmed, the garlic was both sweet and savory, the flat bread was fresh, and we also received a fig compote and a cranberry compote for dipping our bread. This appetizer was almost a meal in itself. We ate every bit of it.

For his main course, my husband ordered a red curry chicken, which he enjoyed and says he would order again. For my main course, I had the seafood salad. It was impressive! I received a piece of grilled salmon and about eight grilled shrimps. The salad also had papaya and fresh avocado in it. The whole thing was served on a base of very fresh mixed greens.

Altogether, it was a lot of food, and neither of us wanted dessert.

The service was very attentive--at times almost spookily so, since our server would show up without our even noticing that she was nearby (we were very caught up in talking).

I have to say, we were very pleasantly surprised by the whole experience: I do not expect such a high quality of food from a chain, and for a very reasonable price. While I do feel some obligation to support the non-chain restaurants in Kingston, I will definitely come back to Milestones!

I will start by saying that my girlfriend and I have been here once before and had a fairly good experience except for our this and most likely last dinner here.

On a Saturday night we went to milestones at about 8pm after seeing a movie. Our order started off with a round of drinks and also an order of a new appatizer...mini burritos or something of the sort. After receiving and our drinks, 15 minutes later we were asked to give our dinner orders. My girlfriend ordered one of the steaks while I asked for the Chef's Cut Prime Rib to be cooked well done and also a ceasar salad to start. After about 10 minutes our entrees came out. We had not received our app nor my starter salad. My meat was also undercooked...I understand that the prime rib is only cooked to medium rare but I specifically asked if I could get my piece cooked more thoroughly and was told yes. I also understand that this is not ideal and would happily accept the meat if it was not exactly well done, however, it was not even cooked to medium. We did tell our server about the lack of...service ( the burritos and salad) and were comped 4 free appetizers coupons. These coupons only were valued up to $11 apps with a purchase an entree of $20 or more and expired in just over 2 weeks.

As my girlfriend and I were celebrating one year anniversary, this was a disappointing dinner. We had had our first date here and were looking forward to another dinner. We are university students and do not eat out much and especially splurge at an expensive restaurant for an incomplete, rushed dinner. When on the rare occasion, I am going to drop over $100 for two i expect more than this.
