We booked for the New Year's Eve dinner package. The dinner package was canceled with no notice. We spent $1000 for the room at the attached hotel so we weren't happy that we weren't advised of the cancelation ahead of time. That having been said, the dinner we had was excellent. Truly first class. We've been here many times and the food is always excellent! Lamb shank was full of flavour. The Arctic Char was perfectly cooked. The bisque was divine and the desserts were wonderful. Entertainment was a bit uneven but overall good. Highly recommend. We will be back.

Do not be put off by the building’s exterior, it’s really nice inside- some of the best food I’ve eaten in a long time.

This was our first experience with fine dining, so we don't have a good comparison, but we will definitely visit AG again. We were first to arrive for dinner service, thus, were able to sit at the table of our choosing (a romantic little side-by-side behind a half-drawn curtain!) Our host was very gracious and assured me that any dish I chose could be modified to allow me to have a gluten-free meal. This was a great relief, as I worried that my options would be limited; I was pleased to know that the chef was willing to personally accommodate me - even the fresh biscuits were served to me separately and were gluten-free! We were a little intimidated by some the menu items at first, being unfamiliar with several of the ingredients, however, the food proved to be delicious, artfully presented, and worth taking the time to savour! Overall this was a fantastic experience. If you are looking for a romantic dinner for a special occasion, this is a great place for it!

A little... Underwhelming

We ate with them last night and to be honest I was expecting more from all the hype. There was no "nicest table in the house" as it is in a basement, but they hide that somewhat with nice decor. It was a little bit loud for what I would consider fine dining which I believe they consider themselves. I actually had to get up and request doors be closed on a private party.

The waiter and server were both wonderful and knowledgeable.

We started with the bone marrow and a beat salad. Both were delicious and done just right. Drinks were whiskey (Glenfidich 12 or15 i can't recall) and a comso, both very nice

Next was the red deer and artic char. Presentation on the char was lacking, but the taste was there. The red deer was over cooked at the "medium" and was more like a medium-well... the meat lacked any juices and the tenderness was almost gone. I think they relied on the sauce to hide that. Drinks were whiskey (Glelievit 12 and a splash of a 16 I can't recall the name of.. it was less than an ounce and was on the house because of that, both nice) and sparkling water.

Dessert was the brownie and hazelnut cheesecake. The brownie was ... a brownie. Who doesn't love one of them. The cheesecake however was exceptional. Smooth as silk and just rich enough to pay all the bills. Drinks were the espresso cocktail and maple whiskey. Both were tasty and fun.

As a birthday surprise, they brought a little chocolate shot and almond cookie out after we were done. A nice touch.

Biggest issues were noise, over done meat basic brownie and the waiter didn't say tank you for his tip which was more than 20%. That irked me.

All in all, I would equate it to something you do once and carry on happy. Nothing screamed come back again, but I'm glad we went.

AG was everything I expected it to be - and more. Every delectable morsel of food was not only beautifully displayed, but scrumptiously delicious as well. A little complementary shot of mulled cider topped with (I think it was) a whipped rum Creme - outstanding! Service was unquestionably perfection.
Fresh food art.
The Best!
Will definitely be back.

Literally one of the best meals I have ever had. Everything there is so good and I love how their menu is constantly changing to suit the season. You leave FULL too -- healthy servings that are packed with flavour. I am in love with this restaurant.

Food was delicious. Our server was good, she was there when she needed to be there. One of the food runners was great and went over and beyond. She noticed we were celebrating something and asked if we wanted our photo taken. She was polite and kind. I wish we got her name so I can actually name her out but unfortunately I did not.

Tasting menu was not worth the price. Soup was very good. Tenderloin was disappointing...brie and almond topping dominated instead of complimented the flavour of the steak and the au jus was bland. Dessert was disappointing too...the pumpkin spice latte creme brulee was too spicy overwhelming the flavour of pumpkin. The brownie was dry and bland. Overall, I wasnt impressed for a restaurant that bills itself as one of Ontario's best fine dining establishments.
