Milestones - Any point?

I need a very generic and can't go wrong sort of place in the yonge and sheppard area. What is your opinion of milestones for dinner, anything worth ordering? We're not in the mood for sushi or other asian which eliminates most of the choices in the area!

  1. It's fine for a casual, take no-chances dinner. Take a look at their menu. It looks good.

    1. For a middle of the road reliable dinner I like Milestones - however, I prefer Moxies - also at Yonge and Sheppard. Here's their menu: I usually order a few appetizers, instead of mains, because the couple times I've been there have been more for drinks, late bite. I liked their ahi tuna crisps, avocado spring rolls and the szechuan green beans.
      At Milestone's, I always order the Vegetarian Thai Noodle Salad. I enjoyed the edamame appetizer (although it seemed oilier than usual). Last time I was there my sister had the beef tacos and my friend had the steak and both were happy enough.
      Both have a chain-y atmosphere, and good service.

      1. it's fine if you have low-ish expectations. start with a giant Bellini- that helps!
        for one of those chain type places it is better than expected imo.

        1. With Milestones, we prefer to sit downstairs in the bar, not up in the dining area and we stick to appetizers --- eating almost 'tapas' style -- definitely have a Bellini!!!

            Yeah... definitely swig back Bellinis early and often. Should help stomach the mains.

          2. I thought the red curry chicken bowl presentation was on a par with cruise ships
