Milestones Grill + Bar
It was Free Date Night at Milestone’s and away we went for a getaway without the kids. It seemed like a lot of others decided to do the same as the restaurant quickly filled up to capacity just shortly after we arrived. No reservations tonight so you have to show up and hope for a table or find an alternate place to dine.
Free date night works like this - order any appetizer, entree or both, from their menu, and your date gets theirs free (equal or lesser value). Just the way you read it, no catches.. just a very sweet deal!! Way to go Milestones, I loved you even before stepping foot in your restaurant this evening.
Our food was just fantastic!! The calamari was perfectly cooked, very tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. The accompanying spicy sausage tomato caper sauce and the preserved lemon aioli were so good that I wished I could buy them in a bottle to take home with me. The Spinach and Artichoke Dip is second to none here. The only complaint I have about both appetizer dishes that they were tad bit too salty but otherwise quite tasty!!
For dinner, I wanted the Sesame Shiitake Mushroom Sea Bass but due to over fishing of Sea Bass, Milestones have discontinued serving it even though it is still on their menu. Cajun Shrimp Diane was my second choice. Shrimp simmered in a creamy cajun sauce atop a bed of jasmine rice, served with some Chinese Greens and Shiitake Mushrooms. Very yummy - a definite reorder dish for me. My better-half ordered the Portebello Mushroom Chicken, a dish that she orders everytime we go to Milestones. I usually can count on a some of her food left over for me to finish up but no left overs tonight. So obviously she liked the dish a lot and she wasn’t disappointed by it today.
I know this is another Chain Restaurant but for us, it is THE BEST CHAIN RESTAURANT and we always enjoy our meals there. Today was that more special as my date got to eat her meal for free. Thanks Milestones, we will be back for your next Free Date Night - you can count on it!
