About the restaurant
Our mission? Great people helping other great people totally have a blast while enjoying amazing food. Wow, that was a mouthful. But can you blame us? We’re a restaurant. One that specializes in delicious food and great times. Our goal is to make you laugh. And depending on your hot sauce tolerance, cry.

In all seriousness, we take real pride in our food. Try our Cluckin’ Fresh Chicken Fingers, made and seasoned with fresh, never frozen chicken tenders. This isn’t run-of-the-mill pub grub. Our Band of Chefs are influenced by a wide variety of tastes and have travelled across the globe to gain inspiration.

But outside of the kitchen, we find it hard to take ourselves seriously. We have an Elvis booth. For no particular reason. Folks, that really does say it all. We’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.

We went to celebrate a birthday. The delivery of a birthday cake, and singing by the resto staff was sweet. Service was very attentive, food arrived piping hot and overall the table was well tended to. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the birthday girl was very pleased.

The Brie and onion soup were excellent. The gravy on the steak left much to be desired. We were disappointed in the gravy.

Wilfrid's is a lovely restaurant. But what took away from our enjoyment of the place was the near constant stream of very casually dressed people, many with children, coming into to the center of the restaurant from the Terrace restaurant searching for a bathroom. Doors would automatically open and close continuously, people would wander looking for the bathroom. It was very distracting, but also weirdly funny, as they had no idea where to go. There has to be a better way for La Terrasse patrons to access facilities. Additionally, my husband ordered the seafood pot a feu, which was filled with wonderful seafood and had a tasty broth. But it was not accompanied by any bread to dunk in the sauce. We asked for some bread and were brought 2 pieces of undercooked focaccia, with some butter & salt. We found out later when we got the bill that this bread cost us $16CAD. Not good.

We like to have fun in the kitchen. We serve small plates so you can try more than one dish. We use local ingredients wherever possible. We’re inspired by where we live, places we’ve been and things we’d like to do.

Delightful afternoon tea. Great choice of teas. Sandwiches outstanding. The dairy-free platter for my super-allergic daughter was excellent - she didn’t feel left-out as she often does. The two young lady wait staff were delightful and helpful - really added to an excellent birthday experience. And, as my granddaughter said, the decor was super cute. Thank you for a great experience. We will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu.

The food was excellent. All 5 of us ordered a different dish and each one was scrumptious. The service was efficient and attentive, but not intrusive. The ambience was conducive to a fine dining experience - energized by the other diners but not so loud or disruptive to impact our table. Overall, a positive and memorable experience.
