    Everything was good, service was a bit wonky initially as I think they undergoing a shift change resulting in some confusion but once straightened out all was good. Food was excellent, did not feel rushed.

    The patio out back is lovely. Breezy and sheltered. Food is always good. However we may have had a new server as there were a few mix ups and wait time was unusual. All good. Will definitely go again!

    Everything was great except the entrance experience. They make you stand in line behind people getting take out coffee even though you have a reservation for the inside restaurant. There were people available to take us to our seats and we made sure they knew we were not there for take out. However the women insisted we had to wait in line as everything is managed from that take out line. We waited 10 minutes to be seated. After that the experience, service and food was good. They need to change that entrance policy.

    Miijidaa Cafe + BistroResponded 4 days agoHello Mary. Sorry for your 10 minute wait there. We did not have separate lines for take-out versus reservations so we can accommodate people in order. The past weekend was art on the street on the street we are located, resulting in a higher volume of customers than usual which resulted in your wait- we apologize for inconveniencing you. We're glad you had an otherwise great experience. See you again next time.

    Miijidaa was a really nice Resturant! Our server was lovely and the appetizers are very good! However, one of the staff members came of quite rude and even replied “huh” when I asked him politely for something and huffed and walked away. A big no for me! Don’t be in hospitality if you don’t enjoy it! Other then that, very nice restaurant, good food, and other staff very nice:)

    Miijidaa Cafe + BistroResponded 4 days agoHello Sammie, thank you for your review - so sorry about that interaction you had with a staff member here - definitely not appropriate. Glad you enjoyed the rest of your experience. See you again next time.

    Very nice little place. our Server was very prompt, friendly & helpful. Our Beef Cheeks & Duck were cooked & seasoned beautifully thougt the vegetables were a little too raw for my taste but that's not a knock against the cooks that's probably just the way they meant them to be. Great place for occasionally dining out. Would recommend it.

    The high tables were too close together. The waiter was loud and in your face squeezing between tables, and a little bit pushy with his loudness. The menu is very limited. Not much of a choice for appetizers. Mostly dips. The fish and chips we both chose was meh. The cole slaw was hard with cores not taken out and without much flavour. The bill...$70 with one beer each, no appy. Not a great value.

    Miijidaa Cafe + BistroResponded on June 21, 2022Hello Rodney, so sorry your experience wasn't what you were expecting - sincerely apologize if you we're uncomfortable with how close your tables were + if you weren't satisfied with the menu or your food selections. We can see how a mix of all these would make for a less than ideal experience. Feel free to give us a call and + we would be happy to try and make up for it. Thank you for your review + hopefully see you again soon.

    Hadn't been to Miijidaa since pre-pandemic. We went for their cheapy pizza night. Our server brought us the wrong beer. We didn't send it back and we ended up liking it. Serendipity! The chef burnt our first pizza (go figure), so our server offer up a comp salad or fries. We asked if we could have a bowl of the soup of the day (roasted red pepper/feta). They said no problem. The food was good, service was friendly and accommodating.

    The menu is really excellent with many different options for all tastes. The waiter was charming and my pizza with kale and mushrooms, though not quite as good as their wild boar sausage pizza (which must be on their winter menu) was still really tasty. The crust is what makes their pizzas shine. Super thin and a cracker-like crunch!! Yum!!! I want to give a special shout out to Dylan the hostess, who went over and above in her customer service. Overall, a wonderful local place with lots of character and great food!!

    Food was outstanding for all 4 of us. Would have been an outstanding rating had it not have been for the very slow service. Even the server apologized for it. We all have off nights and as a result will surely go back and will recommend it to others as the food made up for it.
