We are a wonderful dinner, and service was great.
Very delicious food and friendly service. Loved it. Will definitely go again.
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.
Excellent food, atmosphere and value. Will definitely return and recommend.
Food was really good, not a long wait to receive it, and delicious. Everything. Would definitely go again. And soon.
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
Great local place, fantastic food and atmosphere, menu is unique and offers a wide variety of cuisine. Would definitely recommend…it’s worth the drive to Guelph
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.
Lovely restaurant, very interesting menu, and good service. Would go again.
Thanks so much :) See you soon!
Amazing dishes! Great service! Fantastic weather to be on the back patio!
We will be back!
Fantastic, thank you so much Linda! Can't wait to have you back!
Great food, amazing service. Very well spaced for Covid protocols.
Thank you so much Mark!! We were so excited to host you for such a special anniversary. See you again soon!
Nice change. Menu items were interesting. Good attentive service. Overall I would go again.
Thank you for the feedback, Ellie! Hopefully we can make it a 5-star experience next time!
The service was very good! We were taken care of!! Thank you!
The food, duck and chicken, were just incredible!! Beyond any expectations!!
Thank you so much as well!
Well done! Will come back for sure!
Thank you so much, Linda! Happy to see you again soon!!
First the service was excellent. Our waiter Mia was attentive and caring The food was above par. My Veggie Berger was home made with lots of chick pea for protein and had adequate flavour. I would recommend this establishment for a family to have a great get together.
Thank you for this lovely review, Clarence! See you soon!!
Our server was friendly and easy to work with. She never made us feel rushed, even though there was a time limit due to Covid. She was knowledgeable and friendly.
Always a pleasant experience here.
Fantastic to hear, Mary! Thank you very much!!
I always enjoy coming to Miijidaa. Excellent food, excellent service, good value.
Thank you so much, Bailey! We'll see you again soon!!
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 :)
Interesting downtown Guelph bistro offering good choices in food and beer.
Thank you, John!! Hope to see you again soon!
Miijidaa always has excellent food, and excellent service.
Thank you so much Alyssa. We'll see you again soon!!
We liked our experience - the food (mushroom pizza, appetizers, daily soup and the peanut butter pie for desert) everything was delicious. Lovely patio, friendly service. Thank you!
That's fantastic, Bella! Thank you for the feedback!!
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.
Thank you for the feedback, Catherine!! We would love to make it up to your daughter next time she's in, please let your server know and we'll do something special!
Great place with local and interesting menu. Definitely get the halloumi appetizer. The espresso Martini was a delicious treat. We will definitely be back.
Thank you Siobhan!! So glad you enjoyed yourself, see you again soon :)
Love the water buffalo burger and halloumi appy! Great food and phenomenal service
Thank you so much Andrew! Lucky you got to snag one of those burgers while we had them ;)
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
Thank you for your feedback, Jonathan! We're sorry that the food was inconsistent and that the service was lacking. We do appreciate the understanding as we are training up a new team while things are picking up again! However we don't like to make excuses and would love to make it up to you next you join us.
We loved our waiter! I think her name is Jasmine. All around wonderful!
Fantastic! Thank you for the feedback Mayal!!
Service was extremely slow. Had three different servers within an 1.5 hour diner.
Hi Ashley! Thank you for the feedback, and we are very sorry that we didn't meet your expectations - we hope to exceed them! Please let us know next time you join us and we would love to make it up to you.
Food was fantastic, drinks were unusual and delicious and service was perfect.
Thank you so much!! See you again soon :)
Fave spot in Guelph now! The drinks were amazing.
Thanks Natalya!! Keep an eye out for our Fall cocktail menu coming soon ;)
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.
Thank you for the feedback Josephine, and we're sorry we let you down! Hopefully next time you come in we can hit it out of the park for you. New Fall menu coming soon!
Food is always on point
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.
Wonderful. Great patio. Superb service. Very good food. Full beer selection and decent local wines.
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!!
Our luncheon experience was lovely. The server was friendly and knowledgeable, the patio is private and pleasant and the food was delicious. The only issue I have is the ridiculous amount charged for a glass of Ontario wine
This is one of our favourite downtown eateries. Great people, amazing food selections, great drink menu and superb ambience.
This place has great food - every dish is special and unique. Also has great options for dairy free or vegan choices. Great wines and drinks as well. I often choose this place to bring visitors to Guelph or for birthdays and anniversaries!
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.
Pretty noisy and service a bit slow, but otherwise excellent pizza and burgers
We enjoyed our lunch. Food was good and nice serving size. Very pleasant staff.
Experience was ok
