Great food as usual and service great..wished they had quiet area separate for couples. Big groups make it really noisy, one couple Sat down.and left because of the noise level. We were anxious to leave after eating to enjoy the quietness outside.

Visited for the first time with a friend- we shared both appetizers and entrees

Elk scotch egg and purr puri tofu starters
Duck breast from the regular menu and roasted squash with quinoa from the harvest menu
Special drinks from the harvest menu - a chamomile Sosa and a turmeric latte

Everything was delicious, presentation was attractive and appetizing. I would definitely have the scotch egg again - the only reason I wouldn’t have the other items is that I would want to try something else! but the scotch egg (served with simply but flavoufully dresses greens and cranberries) was something I could imagine craving specifically

The server was friendly and efficient

Family (husband, son and myself) went to Miijidaa for my birthday. We had a reservation, and were seated promptly on arrival. Nice simple tables setup in a couple of rooms, each room with a number of tables. The menu contained a variety of very interesting options and we had a hard time choosing. Settled on a couple of apps to share - hay smoked arctic char and elk and apple sausage rolls from the special harvest menu. Both were delicious! Mains were equally as interesting and delicious (Boulliabasse, cured pizza, kale salad and elk sausage scotch egg). Already recommended to friends, and will definitely be back - maybe this coming weekend!

We had dinner with friends this past Sunday on our way to the River Run Centre. The atmosphere was lively and fun, the service was on point/ excellent. I had the roasted red pepper soup which was outstanding, as well as the pickerel and chips... also outstanding. I advise getting a reservation so as not to be disappointed. I would whole heartedly recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates good food.

We were celebrating both a birthday and a wedding anniversary, and had brought a cake with us. I had forgotten candles, but the staff remembered! They were very friendly, and professional. The thank-you cards with the gift voucher that were presented to our birthday girl and our celebrating couple were a very nice surprise! The food was delicious, and the timing excellent. Thank you!

Best meal we have had in Guelph. Only comment would be the arctic char spread should come with bread or crackers. Bouillabaisse, special bison sous vide, and duck all outstanding. Children's menu had a perfectly sized fish and chips. Plan to go on our next visit. Service attentive.

Food was delicious and well presented. Venison burger was cooked perfectly. Bullioubase was decent but not spectacular. Very limited wine list outside of Ontario wines. Acoustics in the room are terrible. So loud our server had to practically yell. Wouldn’t go back based on this which is too bad because the food was worth a return visit. We went on a Thursday at 7.
