Long wait to be seated despite having a reservation. Menu was generic with no stand out dishes. Should have a chicken dish always instead of two bland fish options. Pork is incorporated into many dishes so beware if keeping kosher.

Everything was good. Just took a while to get seated but nice view so not too bad. I’ve been here a couple times, only this time was the service a bit lower than expected. Other than that, it was perfect!

It was a great experience! My only “complaint” was our plates were never cleared when we got back to our table. Need more float staff to assist with this. Changing cutlery would have also been a nice upgrade for the price you pay and kind of expected but it did not happen from our server. Yet the table behind us from another server had this... “class act” service!

The view and ambience is worthwhile as is the food. The prices reflect this and the service level could be stepped up a bit, but overall okay for an out of Toronto restaurant.

We ordered the chef's menu for dinner and it was an absolute treat. So much more than we expected. Amuse bouche followed by 5 spectacular courses each paired with a fantastic wine (even dessert). We came on a Wednesday so the dining room was a little quiet to start but that's how I like it. Great venue for a special occasion, I would reccomend Ancaster Mill to anyone that appreciates great food and excellent value/service.

The waiter gave us a cold face, and didn't bring drinks to us while other guests have a yellow drink when they have sit. The plate collected at a very long time gap.

We came here for Sunday Brunch and would definitely be returning. Food was fresh and delicious. Service was phenomenal. The view of the waterfall was beautiful. No complaints! If you come for early bird special, it's a great deal. Highly recommended.

Enjoyable evening, although disappointed with being seated in a high traffic area. Wait staff seemed to forget us on several occasions, resulting in us having to flag someone down several times. Food was good as always.

The receptionist greeted us with a smile and took our coats. We were led to our table and given a nice place overlooking the waterfall.
We have been to the Ancaster Mill several times and are always pleased with our selection on the menu, I only wish that there would be a little more choice on the luncheon menu, I find it very limited.
Our server was very courteous and explained the menu and answered all our questions.
We will return to the Ancaster Mill again soon.

We were there for the Sunday "Family dinner" - a prix fixe menu, but with vegetarian or vegan options if you need them. The room is lovely, the service is perfect, and the view outstanding. If you're looking for innovative, unusual food, this is not the place. If you're looking for well-prepared pleasant food that pays respect to the seasons and what's available locally, you'll be fine.

I love coming here but this experience was a bit different. The food was not up to par.

Also.. I noticed the floor manager (assuming)was eyeballing tables to see how far along we were. It felt very uncomfortable and annoying as we felt pushed out the door.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Brunch! The only issue was that I feel they need at least 2 people on the omelette station & 2 people carving the beef. It was crazy busy & lined up in both these areas.

The food was amazing & we will definitely be going back:)

It was a good experience. Lots of good food. However, we went on Super Bowl Sunday, so instead of a classy meal, we were greeted by servers dressed in football jerseys. That was a little bit disappointing.
