Service was ok. Busy with patio guests. Very hot. Air conditioning must have been off. One of our guests had to go outside to get fresh air. Hesitant to return anytime soon

Dinner was very good, prime rib nicely cooked unfortunately, no fresh veggies just root vegetables. Service was very friendly and we were well spaced. Good selection of wine.

Service was impeccable, food was delicious. I started with the soup, which was roasted red pepper and tomato and cheese. Wonderful. I had the salmon and it was juicy and flavorful. Couldn’t have asked for anything better. Just to be out having a dining experience felt like heaven. Thank you Elmhurst. Always a pleasure.

We sat on the patio with a lovely view of the water fountain out front. It was beautiful. Our server and his assistant were extremely pleasant and provided excellent service. Our starter salads were fresh and delicious and our entrees were phenomenal - ribeye, vegetables and crispy sweet potato. We’ve had nothing as good as this meal. Well done! Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our brunch, however were disappointed that there was a limit of one mimosa per person, irrespective of the fact the menu online says "complimentary Prosecco and orange juice" and does not stipulate a limit.

I'm not sure if you use any ingredients that have MSG in them but my wife was violently ill an hour or so after getting home. There were only one or two items from the buffet tables that she had that I didn't do I don't think it was good poisoning. She is allergic to MSG.

The food was ok. I prefer my prime rib to be rare and this prime rib was cooked throughout and grey. It was just perfect for people that enjoy giving their jaw muscles a good workout.

The staff were quite friendly and efficient but overall I would give the dinner a solid "Meh." My wife on the other hand won't be eating there again as she didn't enjoy spending an intimate evening with the toilet after eating at you establishment. Her opinion of the night out would be a string of expletives and a 0/5 rating.

I ordered a prime rib and got a cut that was 97% fat with a tiniest bit of meat on it. Other then that the food was delicious but over priced for the quality. There are plenty of restaurants with modern menus at the exact same price range where the quality is well worth the price but this meal was not worth the $134 dollars for bad prime rib

Placed reservation 2 days in advance and ate from the Club Menu. The food was amazing, well prepared and healthfully fresh. The Inn is so beautiful and we toured the restaurant, upstairs and down, and admired the paintings which are for sale. Such a nice place to eat. Must be great to spend more time and stay over in the hotel. For us it was a convenient location to meet my son who lives in Waterloo and us in Windsor.

I watched the crepe chef handled all the desserts with his bare hands moving them around. He had one gloved hand on tings but used his bare hand. The food was not as good as it usually is. Other times I would highly recommend but not this time.

Restaurant was great. Food presentation lovely as always. The food was a five for my husband as he is a meat eater. The reason I gave it three stars is because I’m a vegan and there are not many options. Would have liked more than one option. Otherwise everything was good.

The food took a long time to arrive and by the time we received our dessert the ice cream had already started to melt.

In spite of the very crowded parking lot, our reserved table was ready on our arrival and the service prompt and efficient. We were most impressed with excellent variety of salads and the beautifully tender roast beef. Cheeses and desserts were also a special treat.

Nice drive to a beautiful place. Really great ambiance. We were sat in a smaller room so it was nice and quiet. The main room was actually quite noisy. Food was delicious, and everything hot was hot and cold foods were cold...so excellent. Incredible desserts! Loved the crepes. Service was exceptional. Worth the drive. Will make this a yearly adventure with the extended family.

Food was ok, no real issue, but server delivered 2 completely incorrect main courses. We ordered prime rib, (each of us) and she delivered 2 PORK dishes. I asked Is this prime rib? NO... its pork, Didn't we order prime rib.. Oh.. sorry its been a long day. As well no one came to ever refresh water/ask if we wanted another drink. They were in and out of the dining area as quick as possible. Value for money. Average.
Food quality Average.
Would I recommend, yes/no .. on the fence..
