Delicious dinner in an inspiring, art-infused setting with lost of space for a larger party, and lots of appropriate clinking and conversational din that makes going out feel like a social as well as a culinary experience. The Gluten Free options are very tasty, and the ingredients are all fresh. Great alcohol selection as well - I had a craft cider that I will drink again and again.

Our family had a birthday dinner at Miijidaa and the service was excellent. The food came promptly and was of very good quality. More vegan options would be appreciated!

We were a little concerned that we may not enjoy the food when we read the menu. To our surprise, the food was amazing! They put a spin on the food and make it to perfection! Thanks for a wonderful evening!

Really loved the food and the vibe of the restaurant but the service was pretty poor. Took over 1.5 hrs to get our entree and during that time we hardly saw our server.

The waiter we got was very rude and lazy. The only good thing he did was giving us complimentary appetizers because it took forever for our mains to come out. Here are the list of things that we were unhappy about:

1) when one of us asked for wifi password, the waiter was hesitant to give it to us and lied. He said oh it’s very “slow” but when we told him we need it to put it in the iPad for kids to watch, he finally gave it to us and the wifi was actually fast.

2) he seems annoyed or faking a smile when we asked for straws. He replied that they do not have straws only metal straws, but it’s still a straw right? But only came back with 2 bc he claims that that’s all that they have. But after seeing how he is, can’t help but wonder if he’s lying because he lied about the wifi.

3) we were given a pitcher of water, so I guess it was self serve. But why is it mandatory 18% service charge if there’s not much service?! The waiter didn’t even asked if we wanted a refill on our drinks.

4) when we asked for the bill, we asked him to split it evenly for us, instead he gave us the bill for the entire table and let us “deal with the splitting”.

5) when we gave him the final price to charge us with tips included, we were talking and asking each other to make sure it was including tip and when I told him that the tips were included, he looked at me and said “I know... “ in a very rude tone, THEN he tried to save himself by saying thanks for letting me know and then proceed to change the tone and subject, asking where we were from. I mean, excuse me but clearly he realized what he did wrong and saw the look on my face. This waiter really sucks and so rude.

The overall experience of the restaurant is ok, food was good, Caesar not so good. The restaurant was nice enough to give us free appetizers for making us wait so long. The other waitresses were much nicer and friendlier. If we had a different one, I’m sure our experience would’ve been a lot better.

Miijida is my go to restaurant in Guelph. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the menu is creative and the food is fantastic. I normally get the dinosaur kale salad, but everything on the menu is flavorful and delicious! Highly recommend!!!

Excellent service in a beautiful setting on the patio. The long live edge table under a tree was fantastic for our group of six.Food was very good; for brunch would like some more egg choices. Great venue and then go book browsing afterwards.

Great place to enjoy a meal before a movie. The food was wonderful - I had the wild salmon, and my husband had the tourtiere. Pinot grigio was on special which matched perfectly. But I can't stop raving about the peanut butter mousse pie - we each got our own (too good to share!) We'll be back soon!

Our first visit.
Great service.
Food is very good.
A menu with a few more choices would serve this establishment well.
The million dollar question???? Who you go back
Yes I would go back without hesitation.

Miijidaa is probably my fave restaurant in Guelph. The menu is continually updated and the dishes are so unique. The quality of food is exceptional. They were so accommodating to dietary restrictions. I have never been disappointed and I often bring visitors here. I highly recommend.

Great patio for drinks and some simple apps but skip the mains. 3/4 were not happy with lunch served and charcuterie board had some cheap cuts of 90% fat prosciutto.

We've been twice now. The food is consistently decent. The service has always been extra friendly. The tables are a little close to one another, especially some tables. My biggest complaint is the smell of the restaurant. Some restaurants, you walk in, and you're swept away by the entrancing smells of delicious cooking. Unfortunately at Miijidaa, I did not find that to be the case. Perhaps it's not their fault--perhaps it's just the building. But I wish I could smell the delicious food from their kitchen, because the food does taste good.

Miijidaa's always gives us good value for our money. The food is excellent, the services is reliably trustworthy, and the ambiance is relaxing. We can go for a more upscale evening or more casual and always feel comfortable. The fact that there is quite low staff turnover contributes to us trusting the suggestions of the servers. We love the fact that it's carbon neutral as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone - and I do frequently!

My visit overall was really good. I would have given 5 stars except that the floors really needed a sweep. Normally I wouldn’t have even noticed but there was large chunks of food under my table/chairs that I kept stepping in.

Went here for dinner with family.
Got seating at the patio as requested. Food & service both were great.
My cocktail drink was way too sour for my taste so could not finish it.
Food portion was very filling.

Good meal. Found it noisy and hard to hear others at our table. Newly vegan and found choices minimal and boring. Pizza and fish and chips for others were very good. Peanut butter chocolate pie loved by grandson.
