This was our first visit to the restaurant. Highly recommended to us.
Ambience - great
Waitress - wonderful
Food was good but we are more traditional and the local, farm to table experience didn’t quite meet our expectation.
This restaurant would be more exciting to our “mid 30’s aged” children. Tasting local beers, etc. would surely be their vibe.

Great food and service. One of the best places to eat downtown Guelph. Plus it’s attached to a bookstore! Just plan ahead to be sure to find parking in advance. You’ll likely need to walk from another street as the restaurant is on a busy street with limited parking

With special guests coming in from out of town last minute for a very special reunion and celebration, Miijidaa found us an indoor table when our original patio reservation would have had us soaked with rain! I've been holding an Italian bottle of wine since my trip in 2012 I wanted to share with them so was thrilled to hear that they offered corking service and they did their best to ensure my guests had an exemplary experience. Service was friendly and efficient. I'd return again in a heartbeat.

We love Majiida! However music was way to loud for conversation. Food was excellent. Unfortunately there was a mess under the table that had not been attended to ,cleaning rags and coffee grounds. We did not order coffee. Over all we had a good time celebrating a birthday and we will return for the great food.

Thank you for the feedback, Kitty!! We would be happy to lower the music next time you visit if it is impeding conversation! We are also sorry there was a mess under your table, that is unacceptable and should not happen again. We are glad that you had an enjoyable experience overall and we can't wait to have you back :)

The service was friendly and efficient, the food was very good, the noise level a little loud. Some sound absorption material might help. It was my daughter's birthday which I had indicated on the reservation but there was no effort to give her some little treat with a candle in it. That would have been nice and appreciated. No need to sing.

We went as a group of 4 for dinner. Nice place with average to higher prices based on the portion sizes but fairly good food. I had the venison+pork burger which was good but on the smaller size and a little over done. Another had the trout which came as 2 pieces; 1 over done fairly severely and the other was fine. Fairly inconsistent food I found. Service was average to poor with a long wait time in between drinks and had to waive down the waitress for service. It's hard to critique too hard as Covid has had a big effect on staffing/line cooks. I would give it another shot given the circumstances but wasn't anything overly special

my meal was simpler than what the menu promised: corn didn't look roasted, tomatoes didn't taste smoked, and Miiji bowl generally lacked dressing or any flavour beyond that of the vegetables themselves.

The food is as alright, thought this would give more respect to First Nations, no land acknowledgement, no explanation of why the menu was what is was in respect to having taken a First Nations name. Not sure what respect was paid to First Nations despite taking the name. Was expecting more, especially from a city as culturally sensitive as Guelph.

It was very good. My only issue was the customers, since we have no control over them but it made my ex tony as enjoyable as I expected to me. The people behind me their was one guy who was swearing, and then the table beside us never moved as I had a toddler with a stroller and needed extra room to maneuver between tables and chairs.
Have people really forgotten Adequate when dining out? But otherwise everything was amazing!!

Mijiidaa is a nice little spot, but if you have celiac disease stay away. I am certain there was gluten in my food, as I was sick almost immediately after the meal and the very next day. I think that restaurants need to treat gluten allergies as serious as any other. Thank you.
