Everything was delicious! Our server was helpful and friendly, and the space is beautiful. Would highly recommend this restaurant as it is now one of my favourites! I had the duck and it was perfect.

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.

The food and service was fantastic!
I had their Valentines special, Duck!
We were in the South of France in October and I have to say the Duck I had at Miijiida was by far the best I have ever had!
We will be back!

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.

The servers were quite abrupt and rude, never once did anyone say thank you, our bill was just over $200. The servers were rushing us, quickly taking plates away without asking if we were finished, and ended up asking us to leave when we still had drinks, assuming they wanted to go home early. Asked for aide plates for the three of us to share the pizzas and salads, the server didn’t even say anything just walked away, brought them back, dropped them at the table and walked away. Annoyed we needed plates to eat?!

The food was ABSOLUTELY delicious! I had the herb chicken sandwich with french fries. The home made fries were delicious! The chicken sandwich was superb.

I came here for lunch before heading off to the Guelph River Run Centre to see Anne of Green Gables the ballet. I will definitely be coming back here again next time I go to the River Run Centre! :)

Had a fabulous dinner out with friends on Friday night. The food was fantastic, amazing flavours coupled together. I always enjoy dining at Miijidaa because I would never think to put certain ingredients together and they always impress me. Also, everyone at our table agreed that our server was the best we have had anywhere in a very long time. He was attentive, but didn’t rush us through, he was extremely knowledgeable and great at upselling the features and recommending some go to dishes. All four in our group were very happy with the evening. Thank you

Great service and good. The dessert was to die for. Only negative is that it can become very noisy, but that is because of the layout. I would recommend and will be returning.
