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.

The service was great for our anniversary lunch. The food was delicious, though the Caesar salad, burgers, and fries were overly salted. First-rate martini! At first the music was too loud for muted conversation, but as the restaurant filled, the music became more tolerable. Delicious, as usual.

In a small strip mall I s not necessarily where one would expect to find a five star restaurant so the first thing is that it is slightly out of sight, a tad hard to find. That is the only negative about Days on Front. Once inside you are transferred into a world of cullinary delights. It was a Wednesday and we were extremely happy that we had resevations. The staff was friendly and welcoming as well as extremely efficient. The meals were everything a person who demands excellence in what they consume could ask for. We have been tagged foodies by our friends and are not easily impressed, Days on Front impressed us. A must when in Kingston, a good reason to return to this beautiful city.

Probably my favourite restaurant in Kingston.

Very consistent with high standards—I know I can go here and get what I like and it will be the same every time.

The staff are super friendly and the owner always stops by for a chat.

They like to get me drunk and always have a bottle or two of my favourites from the county available (some that are not even on the wine list).

Really wish they were open for brunch on the weekends...

It was a little too dark for me. It was a cloudy day but the blinds were pulled down all the way. I would like to have sat in the brighter room.
My chicken breast seemed to be a little dry and near the bone didn't seem to be well done. I thought potatoes were a little too well done.
Broccoli was good.

Our second visit, since some years ago. Same excellent quality, gourmet presentation, tasty menu. Crab cakes and scallops were right "up there" with the fresh seafood we had when vacationing in Eastern Canada. First time that I remember that a medium-well steak was actually done properly. We were impressed that their ingredients source local farms and suppliers. Owner remembered us from some years ago and even remembered where we sat! Friendly and efficient service. Would highly recommend.

Consistent seasonal menu. Always well prepared and enough variety for different tastes.
Fine dining in a suburban setting.
It is walking distance from my home.
I enjoy going there with neighbors as well as with our out of town guests.

We were a group of six that hadn’t seen each other in quite a while. We ate after 7p.m. on a week night and the crowd was smaller. Easy to visit; server was able to explain menu items in detail; food was excellent! We will return again.

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Located in Kingston in a strip mall
where you will be underwhelmed when you drive up.
Open the door and walk in and the person who greeted us immediately made us realize we were in good hands. Excellent food, service and good value. Great wine list. There's a neat corner table for an intimate experience combined with people watching.
We were thrilled and would go back in a moment if we were in the area.
