We felt rushed though dinner. Our reservations were for 6pm, and we were out the door by 6:45. As soon as we sat down, the waitress was at our table, asking for drink orders. Good waitress but we were expecting to be there for at least an hour, not 45 minutes. Ordered chicken parmesan and it tasted rubbery, like it had been precooked and warmed up.

We took our friend there for her 64th Birthday, 2 of us really enjoyed the meal, she had the salmon I had the Butternut squash pasta dish, the other lady ordered broiled perch even though our waiter didn't recommend it, she ordered it anyway and guess what, it was gross. We all tried it, well the management was awesome and offered to make her something else and that was really good. I think if the waiter doesn't recommend something, you shouldn't try it. The service was great, it was abit noisy as there was an 80th birthday celebration going on, but overall I would rate the night a 9.8 out of 10.

Love the ambiance! Soup was salty but was readily replaced with a salad. Fresh hot bread with dipping oil ...yum! Entrees were cooked to perfection...filet and the pickerel and perch. Portions were good. Service could have been more attentive.

We have had some good meals here but was disappointed with this one. The lamb chops were good as usual but lamb ribs were very disappointing. Way too much fat and the overall meal was too sweet for my liking.
The server forgot to bring me my second glass of wine.

Celebrated a dear friend's retirement with her choice of dinner locations and we were glad she chose the Station as my wife and I had never been. The onion soup, escargot and salads were exquisite and we enjoyed watching kitchen staff harvest herbs from the garden outside the window. Main courses were filled with "bests" - "best lasagna", "best salmon" and "best meatballs" our party had ever tasted. Desserts received similar glowing reviews with bread pudding and a chocolate cake quickly disappearing. Our server was marvellous - attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable. All in all, well worth the drive out from the city for a fantastic venue, meal and experience!

Enjoyed our lunch very much. Very generous portions and tasty as well. Service was very good and I would recommend this restaurant to my friends. The perch in particular was superb, and so was the sweet potato - roasted pepper soup. Thanks for a lovely dining experience over lunch time with my friend.

This is a lovely restaurant with an intimate setting - the seating is very close together. The service was impeccable. I had a special request for our anniversary celebration and it was played out perfectly which made the evening a wonderful experience. I appreciate their attention to detail.

While the food was very good, if you prefer not to have your food drowning in sauce or salad dressing, just ask the kitchen to easy with it and it should be fine. Outside of that, everything was very flavorful and well done. I would visit again.

This restaurant is in a fully-restored railway station in Kingsville, Ontario, a block or two off the main street. Recommended by our host Deb at the excellent Wentzler's Landing B&B, the food and the service were excellent, the historical building fascinating, and the atmosphere friendly, quiet and relaxing.

With a good variety of foods, from pasta to beef to seafood, the chef clearly enjoys and took pride in his work, with the local perch and pickerel the best I have ever had, my wife's penne athena also very tasty, and the soup! - OMG! - beet with coconut milk soup! We were tempted to order several servings it was so good! The wine selection was good, with several local reds and whites on the list. Pricing was modest, lower in fact than it should be for such a high quality restaurant.

So, there you go - a real gem, off the beaten track - I highly recommend it to those looking for a quiet time and an excellent meal! And thanks to the staff at Mettawas Station for such an enjoyable experience!

This is our second time going here. Just like the first time, everything was excellent, from the hostess being very pleasant and knowledgeable to the EXCELLENT food. I've recommended Mettawa's numerous times to my friends and will continue to do so in the future, as well as eat there. It is a AWESOME restaurant with incredible food. Whatever they're doing to make it a great restaurant, DON'T CHANGE A THING!
