My friend drove from Toronto to meet me for lunch. She was very impressed with the food and the restaurant, and she has access to interesting restaurants in Toronto. The service was great and the food delicious (lattes,sandwiches, salads).

I went for a belated birthday lunch with my family, the food was delicious, the server was also amazing! She put a birthday candle on my dessert and gave me a gift card for the restaurant, which was very sweet. Will definitely be back to use my gift card, loved my first experience!!

Visited for the first time with a friend- we shared both appetizers and entrees

Elk scotch egg and purr puri tofu starters
Duck breast from the regular menu and roasted squash with quinoa from the harvest menu
Special drinks from the harvest menu - a chamomile Sosa and a turmeric latte

Everything was delicious, presentation was attractive and appetizing. I would definitely have the scotch egg again - the only reason I wouldn’t have the other items is that I would want to try something else! but the scotch egg (served with simply but flavoufully dresses greens and cranberries) was something I could imagine craving specifically

The server was friendly and efficient

Family (husband, son and myself) went to Miijidaa for my birthday. We had a reservation, and were seated promptly on arrival. Nice simple tables setup in a couple of rooms, each room with a number of tables. The menu contained a variety of very interesting options and we had a hard time choosing. Settled on a couple of apps to share - hay smoked arctic char and elk and apple sausage rolls from the special harvest menu. Both were delicious! Mains were equally as interesting and delicious (Boulliabasse, cured pizza, kale salad and elk sausage scotch egg). Already recommended to friends, and will definitely be back - maybe this coming weekend!

We had dinner with friends this past Sunday on our way to the River Run Centre. The atmosphere was lively and fun, the service was on point/ excellent. I had the roasted red pepper soup which was outstanding, as well as the pickerel and chips... also outstanding. I advise getting a reservation so as not to be disappointed. I would whole heartedly recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates good food.

We were celebrating both a birthday and a wedding anniversary, and had brought a cake with us. I had forgotten candles, but the staff remembered! They were very friendly, and professional. The thank-you cards with the gift voucher that were presented to our birthday girl and our celebrating couple were a very nice surprise! The food was delicious, and the timing excellent. Thank you!

Best meal we have had in Guelph. Only comment would be the arctic char spread should come with bread or crackers. Bouillabaisse, special bison sous vide, and duck all outstanding. Children's menu had a perfectly sized fish and chips. Plan to go on our next visit. Service attentive.

Food was delicious and well presented. Venison burger was cooked perfectly. Bullioubase was decent but not spectacular. Very limited wine list outside of Ontario wines. Acoustics in the room are terrible. So loud our server had to practically yell. Wouldn’t go back based on this which is too bad because the food was worth a return visit. We went on a Thursday at 7.

We went to Miijidaa to celebrate my moms 60th birthday and had the best experience!! It was exactly what my mom wanted with close friends. The waitress was wonderful and so nice! The food was delicious and very accommodating to any dietary restrictions. We had the: burger, beef cheek, Mac and cheese, chicken, fish and chips, mussels and the special of the evening. Everyone loved their meals and the kitchen was fast in serving. It was such a great evening and would recommend Miijidaa to anyone and can’t wait to go back!

We went for lunch. My son had the Canadian pizza and was disappointed at what was a few pieces of venison scattered around the half pizza. While the accompanying side salad was good, in total, the plate was not with the money.

I am finding that the food is not as good as it was about a year ago. I'm very sorry to say this as I really used to love coming to your restaurant. As for the service, I find it has also gone down a bit. Most staff are polite and friend. However, no asking how the food is, no checking on needs. I'm sad to tell you this. Also the noise level is really hard to take. Loud talking, things banging. Really hard to have a conversation without yelling. There are ways to alleviate this with softer surrounding-maybe some carpeting, buffers on chairs. Just too much right now.
