    We booked Headwaters for our pre-anniversary dinner and this place did not disappoint! Contemporary flavours throughout our entire meal. The service (Fred) was exceptional - he engaged us at the appropriate moments and was personable and genuine throughout the evening. Lovely spot for fine dining in Caledon and we’ll absolutely be back again!

    Wonderful stay in the Blue Room of the Main Building. Would recommend that a railing be put in going up &amp; down stairs for us Seniors &amp; maybe night light strips to help us see. A night light in the bathroom would also help at night for travels to the washroom. Noticed there were a few hooks of the curtains which need to be repaired. LOVED the salt Water pools but the PLUNGE pool was freezing.. That needs to be changed to a more reasonable temp. Disappointed that I couldn’t use it. Service in the dining room was excellent. I did request a waterfall view because it was a birthday celebration for me and our first outing in three years of Covid. We did get a partial river view. All in all I was very happy with our stay.

    Amazing ambience, food and service. Menu was a bit limited but everything we ordered was well executed. Make sure to leave room for dessert and time to explore the beautiful grounds after! The property is extensive and wonderful for an after-lunch hike to work off those carbs (or to work up an appetite for dinner).

    Amazing atmosphere...service was okay....Food tastes really poor and took too long to come. The table next to us were way too loud for that type of set up, so much so that we had to leave without ordering dessert and coffee.

    Appetizer and main course portions are on the small side…but exquisitely flavourful and delicious. Perhaps that’s a good thing because then you’ll have enough room for the amazing desserts.

    We had a prime seat overlooking the falls, which was amazing. Unfortunately other factors overshadowed the ambience. The brunch did not have many options, particularly for the inflated price. The food was lukewarm. Also, it was not refilled on the buffet tables and, worse, food was removed early—well before the next seating. When we asked for more cocktail sauce for the shrimp or more bread to be cut (you weren’t allowed to cut your own bread at the charcuterie table), we waited 10 minutes at the buffet. I went up a number of times not knowing what to get, because nothing was outstanding. I am not vegetarian, but I feel for anyone who is, as the choices were slim. I came away getting food I didn’t really want, mostly because I wanted to make the most of the outrageous price. Although our actual server was lovely, staff have obviously been trained to push patrons for drinks, which came quickly. The overzealous drink service was disproportionate to the ponderous buffet service. In short, we left thinking we wasted our money.

    Food and service was very good. It was dinner for one and the table had only one chair which I didn't like, so I was given another chair on request. Also, the girl at the front (hostess?) didn't walk me to my table she walked me halfway and I had to ask some other employees if that was my table. It felt rude and it was the first time I have been to a restaurant where I was not walked to my talble.

    I was seated in the lounge by choice as I wanted to sample their lounge menu. The server was inattentive (though was much more attentive the next evening in the dining area) and a large, corporate group was very loud and boisterous. I did enjoy the food itself, however.

    We ate at Headwaters while we were staying at Millcroft Inn last week - the ambiance was lovely, the service was great with a very friendly server and the food was pretty good. I just came away from the dinner feeling like the food was good, but definitely not worth the price. I think you're also paying for the experience in a nice place with good service, but it was by no means the best food I've ever had and so I just don't feel it was worth the price. I had the butternut squash ravioli and it tasted overpoweringly of beets and root vegetables which took away from the taste of the pasta. The dessert was a maple tart (as part of their Spring maple theme) and I just didn't get much maple flavour out of it! While I did, again, enjoy this dinner overall, I just think it wasn't worth how much everything cost. I would return if I was staying at Millcroft again, but I would warn others about the cost before visiting.
