Very good high-end lunch, prices were not outrageous. The location is in a strip mall, so not ideal. The staff were welcoming and friendly. They knew about the menu and were able to provide recommendations.

Some old menu, food was okay. Good choice of appies. We will not hurry to go back, maybe they will change their menu. As usual the chef’s special was pan seared trout. Do appreciate keeping all wines under $40.

Deep fried cauliflower curry was amazing. We had the steak and duck. Both great meals. The quad chocolate cheesecake was nice and smooth. Looking forward to that dessert again. Maybe one each next time though. :)

Another delicious meal. We didn’t have a babysitter for our 5 month old so we made a Valentines Day reservation on the 13th and the earliest seating available. The staff we so accommodating and really made us feel welcome. We went all out and had 2 apps, 2 mains and dessert and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. We will be back :)

This was our first visit to Days on Front. We attended for my husband's birthday dinner with 10 other friends. The server was outstanding. She was calm, courteous and managed to do so much without even interrupting a conversation. Absolute professional. There was no problem with bringing a cake and she brought it out and then cut it for everyone, which I was not expecting. This restaurant was totally beyond what was expected. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was exactly what we love. We will be back!

We attend Days on Front when we are looking for a memorable evening of celebration. The food is exquisite and something that we could not replicate at home. I regret going out for a meal sometimes when the dinner is served and you think "I could have made this better myself". That has never been our experience at Days on Front. We always find the food really tasty and nicely presented. In our estimation, you can tell that apple did not fall far from the tree!. The Day family has a legacy in the restaurant business here in Kingston. We are lucky to have you. Thanks.

Quaint and quiet, the service was outstanding and made our overall experience a thoroughly enjoyable one. Although this was our first visit, it will not be our last one ! Highly recommended.

Everything was perfect! Quickly seated. A delicious meal: lamb, mushrooms, green beans (subbed for asparagus), French/baked potato cubes, & sauce, fresh bread w butter. Attentive service + a couple of visits from Matt Day to check on things.

Prior to making a reservation to dine at Days on Front, I had heard only rave reviews. All deserved, certainly exceeded my expectations! Thank you for a great dining experience which only added to my (we) celebrating the completion of medical treatments. We will be making a reservation again sometime in the future. Again thank you to all the personnel that we met the evening of January 24th🤗👍👍👍👍

Outstanding food, locally sourced, beautifully presented and delicious. Excellent service with the exception of delay getting drinks. Bizarre location in a strip mall, but the inner decor was nice and every table taken on a cold Thursday in January: a good indication of a success. We loved our meal.

Very welcoming and nice place. Service was good. But the food was very bland, it could have had some stand out seasoning. But instead it was something you could cook at home, plating was beautiful but there wasn't much flavor! I was expecting more according to the reviews I saw online.

Im used to fine dining and since moving back to Kingston and settling in the west end, I have been on the hunt for a great dining experience without going downtown. Well this is it!!!!

The food was fabulous. The wine list and prices was a nice surprise.

I will go back again, the Beef short rib was superb and the bread pudding topped off the evening. :)

We enjoyed our dinner and the service from our “sassy” waitress. The tempura shrimp were outstanding as they were just cooked and and in a very light coating. The wine list for 40 bottles under $40.00 was varied and interesting. Our only food complaint was there was way too much salad dressing on the hot salad dish.

This restaurant is one of the top three in the city. Why, hmmmm, first the food is REALLY good and has been since it opened about six years ago. The dishes change but the quality and good taste never change. This visit I had the steak special, the New York steak was so tender and perfectly cooked it just melted in your mouth with a great taste. It was accompanied by garlic mashed potatoes, grilled Brussels sprouts, other grilled vegetables and a delicious sauce. The scallops to start are always just great, tender and delicious with a homemade bacon jam. My husband had the Caesar salad and steak frites, one of the dishes that I think has been there since the opening and is still a big hit bedside it’s soooo good. Service here is impeccable, professional and attentive, servers figure out your dining pace and serve you when you are ready for the next item. They also know the menu well and can help you substitute. One of our friends noted that he couldn’t eat butter and do without asking the waiter brought olive oil for his bread and had his vegetables cooked in oil instead. The decor is calming, chairs and benches are comfortable. The wine list is interesting with unusual choices; we ha an excellent Syrah from the Similkameen Valley in BC. So food! Decor! Service! Wine! You should go. I suggest reservations on popular nights. Lunch is just as good, btw! Let Matt Day and his great team welcome you to this Kingston gem !

As always, our experience was amazing! I highly recommend the butternut squash soup - it’s to die for! Possibly the best steak & frites in Kingston! And, the wine list is always extensive and well thought out! We’re always happy (and very full) after our visits!

It is always a pleasure to visit your restaurant. In the past you have served us well and promptly as a large group for pre-theatre dinners and with outstanding service. The menu is inovative and portions just right. Usually, it is quite easy to carry on a conversation, without music or other background noises. Long may you prosper!
