We were interrupted often
I find that the server attended when it suited him rather than us
But overall it was fine

Ate dinner at Miijidaa during a weekend visit to Guelph with a handful of buddies. The space was beautiful, service friendly and the food delicious. There were some skeptics in the group at the beginning but by the end of dinner everyone had to admit Miijidaa exceeded our expectations. A must visit if you're in Guelph and looking for a memorable meal.

This was my second visit and my husbands first. We were disappointed in our meals..i had the salmon wild rice dish which was over cooked and salty....my husband had the Duck which was cold and undercooked. For the cost and the restaurant not being very busy...should have been better and given more attention to the preparation.

A great experience with wonderful service, food and value. Shared 3 lovely apps - Elk Egg and Deep fried pickles were faves, and all enjoyed our mains. The salmon was excellent and my son loved the beef cheeks.

- Amazing food
- Awesome server. I have dietary restrictions and she was very knowledgable and eager to help me find something I could have
- Great playlist they had on
- We went on Mother's Day and they gave all mother's a little herb plant to take home. So cute! :)

Thanks Miijidaa!!

We would have had a better meal if the table we were seated at would have been biggest. Our group of 4 was seated at a small table with barely enough elbow room. It made the experience unpleasant as it felt as if it was a juggling act with the plates and a really small table. Side note, the same size table was also used for groups of 2 but it was far too small for 4 adults. Furthermore, all of the 4 chairs were very wobbly and I think could honesty be broken by a large grown man.

We had a very nice birthday dinner for two couples to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The atmosphere was perfect. Food options were great. Wait staff took care of us and went the extra mile to bring out their Peanut Butter chocolate pie to celebrate and provide my wife a birthday card and gift card. Very nice touch. We will return!

We love the Bookshelf and the ambiance at Miijidaa. We have had meals there many times. This week when we visited with friends, and the time before as well, we found the food to be uninspired. The bouillabaisse was rather tasteless, the broth not very savoury, mussels didn’t seem fresh. The salmon portion was very small and the accompanying vegetables not very appetizing. Vegetarian options were few. We were disappointed.

Quinn was a wonderful person on wait staff. Friendly, efficient and casual. The food is always terrific but the noise level is always a bit too much especially in the back room. It has always seemed to me the tables are just a few inches to wide for comfort to talk with your dining partner.

I brought a guest and this was my first event with Miijidaa. Have done others at this location (previous owner ??). The event - well the guest speaker was phenominal and I enjoyed his energy and history lesson. Your hostess for the evening was great too at describing the food that we were being offered. The food was excellent - please bring the stew and duck to your menu !!!! The only DOWN SIDE to the whole evening was the 6 or so gentlemen who were on the reserved table - one of them asked the 1st question of the night and then in our opinion - then was totally disrespectful to our guest speaker by having a loud voice with his people at the table. THEY SHOULD NOT have been talking at the same time, and especially loud enough that we could hear them across the room. I know the guest speaker did go to their table, but they did not respect the event by continuing the conversation. When the gal who sat near me spoke up (I was also going to) - the still never stopped. They didn't spoil my evening because the guest speaker did come over to our area and so we were able to listen to him. Finally a big shout out to the SHY kitchen staff - you guys did great - we left an extra $30 in the tip area for you all. My youngest two kids are both trained chefs and I know that they would have enjoyed the meal.

Please consider having a 'rum' night. What happened will not stop me from coming - it was just a person who should have been asked to leave. I will be back for another evening at your café & bistro.

We love Miijidaa, and it didn't disappoint this time. We went for the Date Night deal, but couldn't resist the pizza. We also had to try the seasonal ice cream (parsnip and honey) and it was so worth it. I would return to Miijidaa any day, for any occasion.
