The scallops are our favourite! And we come back for the sweet potato frites...which we shared.

Service was politely friendly...just the way I like it!

Good coffee too!

My meal was outstanding. Started with apple & spinach & goat cheese salad. Super tasty. Main meal was pork tenderloin with fingerling potatoes and green string beans. The meat was tender and juicy, and potatoes were delicious. Dessert was a masterpiece......bread pudding with sliced bananas and caramel sauce....a must try!

We really enjoyed our 2nd visit to this restaurant. The lamb chop special was creative and delicious, and the beef short rib with garlic mashed potatoes was tender and flavorful. The staff was personable and helpful with the menu. We will be returning on our next visit to Kingston.

We had lunch at Days on Front after touring the Kingston Pen. Our table was waiting for us; the staff was friendly and accommodating. It was a little noisy but did not detract from our visit. Highly recommended.

We have been coming to this restaurant for anniversary for two years now, first time we came it was awesome, the food was tasty , the environment, the service, etc!
This year it was not that good, we got placed to the very corner...where there was no air circulation. We had to wipe off the sweat every so often it was awful.. we didn’t say anything as the restaurant was full also we wanted to try enjoy the night.
Anyways overall is okay, don’t think we’re gonna go back in a few years

Be absolutely sure to order the shrimp tempura appetizer. The shrimp are simply amazing. The portion is huge so it can be shared. All the meals were excellent. Mains were duck, steak, shrimp and short ribs. The vegetables accompanying each were so fresh. It seems like they were picked minutes ago. The service was very attentive and friendly. The wine list is compact but has something for everyone. The best part is that prices are so reasonable. We had a really amazing meal for such a reasonable price.

We always have a great meal ....and always feel welcomed even when it is insanely busy.

We really like the commitment to local suppliers and ingredients and more importantly the consistency of yumminess and service. It is really important to know that the wine list is limited but offers wines that pair extremely well with the food served.

Always a great meal. Shared the beet salad which they always spilt in 2 which is a nice touch. Great wine list of reasonably priced wines ( all under 40). The shrimp pasta was delicious as was the lamb sirloin. This is our favourite local spot!!

Excellent food and good service. Not the type of restaurant you would expect to find in a strip mall. Something for everyone on the menu. The short rib was melt-in-your-mouth good. The tempura cauliflower was amazing. One note: the restaurant was a little warm when we were dining so I would recommend wearing layers.

I've been at Days on Front twice before with friends, but this was my husband's first chance to sample their incredible menu. I had the Arctic Char and it didn't disappoint. The fish had a tasty crust and the vegetable medley that accompanied it was perfect. The server also offered a 1/2 size salad as an appetizer -- I recommend the beet and goat cheese salad . My husband very much enjoyed his short ribs, the dish I've chosen on both my previous visits. The only small down side to our evening was a nearby family with a bit of a fussy baby. We have kids; we get it, but I can't help but wonder about this choice for 8 pm on a Friday night. Days on Front is definitely not a family restaurant.

I had the pork belly as an appetizer although flavorful I felt it could have been cooked better, had the duck for dinner and same flavor was good but the fat not rendered as it should be. Was a little too sweet also

Greeted warmly at the door by owner Matt. Food was excellent. Service and seating was great. My guest from Toronto was very impressed. Another patron, from Toronto, left the restaurant at the same time as us saying that they had stopped for lunch along the way to Ottawa and he was very impressed. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Great service and good food, we had the calamari starter which was pretty good and the steak frites which was yummy. Great selection of wines. Only negative would have been the air conditioning seemed to be not working or non existent so it was hard to enjoy the meal when we were uncomfortably hot and sweating. Again can’t knock the service our waitress was fantastic and still had a good time and a good meal. Would definitely recommend.
