Miijidaa is by far one of the best restaurants in Guelph from their delicious menu to specialty cocktails. The service is always professional and pleasant! A must try restaurant for all!

I have previously eaten here and thought the food was good. I have the Dinosaur Kale salad. My friends and I (group of 5), who have all previously eaten here, all did not enjoy our food.

Burger was tasty. Yay for gluten-free bun! Thanks. Excellent drinks - Cosmopolitans.
Ambience is always good. Acoustics bad but it wasn't too busy so noise level was manageable. Note: I am sensitive to sound due to post-concussion. Our server, Brittney (?) was excellent and kind.

Everyone was thrilled from start to finish - with the unique beer, wine and bourbon list, to the appetizers and interesting mains. I was told many time “good choice!”

I love the menu, it was different and had lots of choices that you don't often see.
The portions were on the small size, (for what we chose) however we couldn't fault the taste.
Server (Griffin) was pleasant. Attentive enough, and not always at your shoulder asking " how's it tasting?"
Atmosphere nice at the back of the restaurant, however I would have been disappointed if we were seated at the front end.

First off I have to start by saying that our server Griffin was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the menu and happily recommended some of his favourites when asked. He checked in on us during the course of the meal without being intrusive. There were 3 of us dining so we chose 3 starters to share. We were disappointed that they were out of Scotch eggs, but just another excuse to come back! We settled on the charcuterie, fried smoked pickles and hay smoked arctic char. All were good but the arctic char was the clear standout: every aspect from presentation to texture and of course taste, was amazing. Our mains were the venison burger, smoked duck, and a seared tuna feature. The burger was slightly on the dry side, but overall satisfactory. The duck was very good – rich, as one would expect – the croquette was unexpected and nicely done. The star was the tuna, which was cooked to perfection, and each accompaniment on the plate complemented the tuna without overpowering it. Griffin told us that if the feedback was positive they were considering adding it to the menu. All I can say is I truly hope it becomes a regular feature item as we would come back again and again just for it. We order chocolate stout cake, chaga mousse, and the sorbet. My fav was the mousse – which oddly reminded me of cookies and cream (no one else got that lol) The cake was good but needed something to add a little "zing" to it: maybe crème fraîche. The sorbet was amazing, and I am not usually a fan, but it was like pumpkin pie: really delish. OK, enough already. Great evening, good food, outstanding service (tuna tuna tuna – add the tuna to your main menu please)

I can only say good things as we almost always end up here. Wait staff is fantastic, cocktail specials are awesome and made with care, interior feels open but comfy and very canadian. This location in Guelph, with the bar, the book store, the movie theatre and this restaurant, is a gem in our city.

The food was absolutely delicious. Especially the Welsh griddle cakes and the 3 sisters ragu/hash. And the service was phenomenal. The server was lovely and really made the evening for us. Wonderful place to go for a date night.

Such a beautiful lovely meal. We chose the date night deal and it was just that - a perfect date night. Our server Mallory was a dream to be served by - she went above and beyond. And the overall atmosphere was just lovely.

Casual atmosphere with very good food and value, great service, a little noisy and tables are quite close togethe, but the patrons all seemed to be having a good time. The lamb neck and fish and chips were very good. Will go back for sure.

I want to really like miijidaa, and there was so much that was good. The drinks were delicious, the I heard they had a vegan and it menu sounded divine. The menu had two pizzas listed with vegan cheese. When I ordered the pizza they brought it to me with no cheese at all. Just bread with potato and apple. So I had to return it and order something else because my waitress, after checking, advised the menu does say cheese but they don’t have any. They were going to give me pizza with no cheese like I wouldn’t notice? Again, the drinks, and the smoked tofu I had were very good, if small. But, when taking the step to offer vegan items it’s super disappointing to find out your limited options are even less, and the kitchen should have informed us there was no cheese. Until they have an accurate vegan menu, will go somewhere else. Otherwise it’s just 3 or 4 options. Too bad, I was really looking forward to adding Miijidaa to my roster.

My husband and I didn't feel like cooking, and were very happy with our decision to go to Miijidaa instead :-)
I had the Dinosaur Kale salad with the scotch egg add-on. It was exactly what I wanted - the salad was fresh, full of flavour and the soft boiled scotch egg was delicious, creamy and crispy. The table beside us ordered one of the other salads which also looked very good - I anticipate craving that scotch egg again, and coming back and trying it with each of the different salad options.
My husband had fish and chips; he particular enjoyed the flavour and 'batter ratio' of the fish, and commented that the coleslaw met the perfect balance between tart and creamy.
Our server was friendly and just the right level of attentiveness.

The Scottish Egg salad didn't have dressing on the lettuce....just plain lettuce....odd The Sausage Pizza - cheese & sausage was good and crust was nice & thin but it still lacked flavour....it needed tomato sauce or something....we had to put salt & pepper on it. No Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi....only an odd tasting local diet cola that - I'm sorry but was not good at all....that type of drink should be an option. Atmosphere & Decor was great but music was way too loud.....unless its a pub - music for dining is suppose to be background not forefront. Service by staff was excellent.

I love Miijidaa. It's my favorite restaurant in Guelph. This past week I ate there twice. It's practically my dining room. The food is universally excellent, service unobtrusive and the atmosphere very pleasant with beautiful paintings on the walls that I always wonder whether I should buy. It IS a bit too noisy for my taste which makes conversations a bit harder. Why not install some tasteful covering on the ceiling that absorbs sound and makes conversations easier? The focus on sustainability and minimizing carbon use is VERY important to me. Keep it up!

Miijidaa is a really lovely spot in Guelph, great atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals which arrived in good time and had a very friendly service. Lots of options for dietary restrictions (including a separate vegan menu you can ask for)

I really liked Miijidaa's 3 course menu for their festival in January. All the options were appealing to my group and the food came out at appropriate intervals.

The portions were a bit big. I would have preferred a reduced price and smaller portions. I did like that the options given were unique and not something that every other restaurant serves.

Had a great meal. Server didn't offer a beverage prior to taking our food order and it was a good 20 min before we got it. Other than that it was terrific.
