Has been one of my favourites for awhile, everything made fresh in house and love that this restaurant now has a vegan menu!

Great as usual! Brought a friend from Calgary and she loved it too. Always such a pleasure to share Miijidaa with friends.

I love Miijidaa and eat there often. My guests love it too. My ONLY complaint is the noise level. My hearing is somewhat impaired which makes me struggle to hear conversations in noisy environments. I wish there were a way of reducing the background noise.

Good food. Nice service. Interesting decor. Little deviation allowed from the menu. Also, based on the name Miijidaa, which comes from Ojibway, we expected indigenous-inspired menu choices. Nope.

It was a very nice dining experience. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. She recommended a featured wine that we thoroughly enjoyed with our meal. Miijidaa is definitely on our list of restaurants to dine at.

The cornbread was a bit dry, but otherwise a delicious meal - prosciutto pizza was great, as was the Dinosaur kale salad!

Service was amazing, but sadly the food was off-base. Not sure whether the potatoes on the pizza were undercooked or a bizarre variety (or both), but the flavour wasn’t harmonious and unfortunately I didn’t enjoy it.

Beyond that, I had a delicious, well-priced cocktail and our server was kind and attentive. The overall atmosphere was great - I just wish I’d enjoyed the food.

I’m sorry but the smoke flavoured deep fried dill pickles over powers the pickle taste. Would not order them again. Veggie burger was good asked for aioli for fries - lacked flavour. Was much better last time we came there. Not sure I’d come back.

Of the three of us, one person had Mac&Cheese with a side salad and she said both were excellent. The other two split both a “Canadian” pizza and a “Dinosaur Kale” salad. We both enjoyed the pizza and I enjoyed the salad, but my friend said later that she tasted something rancid in it, though the greens were quite fresh. That and the noise level were the reasons why I didn’t give the restaurant five stars. Our server was friendly, helpful and didn’t rush us. We’ll probably go back.

My partner and I had our date night here on a Saturday, the food is absolutely phenomenal! Wonderfully cooked meats, and beautifully paired with locally inspired accoutrements. The staff were friendly, and provided great service. We had a fantastic evening and will be back soon!

The maple bacon latte with a waffle is really cute and special. The cured salmon salad is fresh and fish&chips are very tender. Highly recommended! Parking is not easy nearby but the big parking lot across the street is cheap and large.

The food in this spot has been good to very good every time we visited. Peculiarly we were placed in the partially walled in back section of the quite empty restaurant in the worst table in the house. It’s right by the kitchen entrance/exit and close the the glass outside wall which radiates winter cold into this empty section. Our server was very willing to move us but I don’t think she should have had to.

Is one of my go-to restaurants in downtown Guelph! Particularly like the fact that most of the food is locally sourced, fresh and wholesome. Was there recently for my wife’s birthday with a group of 8 people, table service was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu.

Unlike previous visits being very good, this was very mediocre...watery soup, sandwiches short of filling, fries and beer good, Smokey Caesar was over spiced, when asked for taming down.
