We had a lovely lunch with excellent service and great food. The room temperature on a very hot day was a little cool for all four of us. Also, more vegan options, please.

La nourriture est excellente. Le cadre est très agréable et reposant. Mon seul regret tient au fait que la carte du déjeuner soit peut variée.

I think that there was too much time spent on presentation and being unusual, that it impacted the quality of the meal actual ingredients.

Stunning renovation in keeping with the historic era of the original Mill.
Very professional, polite & accommodating staff throughout the whole place.
Lunch was delicious ,with an excellent wine list & window view overlooking the falls.
Understanding the of the structural stone walls, our only difficulty, was the volume of patron noise making conversation difficult.
Bravo to Pearle ,for creating an exquisite getaway with sophisticated staff capable of ensuring return visits!
Sincerely,

Overall experience was OK. You can't say anything bad about the view. Lunch prices are a bit expensive and desert menu was definitely lacking. All in all not bad. The Cellar in Elora is my go back to place.

Elora has always been a charming “away from home” experience. The addition of Elora Mill Restaurant is another reason to make the trip whether from Toronto or right next door. Our party of four loved the entire luncheon experience from the greeting on arrival to service, food, view and surrounding architecture. Can’t wait to return.

Loved our Sunday lunch there - we overlooked the river and enjoyed great food, while admiring the views. The waitress was very friendly and professional throughout although we started our lunch as almost the last customers - we will go back for sure to enjoy the place and maybe stay at the hotel that also looks very cozy, and has a spa with a beautiful terrace.

Requested to sit in solarium. Understand there is no guarantee during reservation time but got phone confirmation of solarium seating the day before. However after arrived at restaurant, we are place in the bar level. A bit disappointed with the arrangement not able to commit to promise. Hostess did not even apologize and said no guarantee. Reason of taking family back is because of the nice ambience. Food is ok and server service were good but pricey so ambience plays a big role in the experience. I would suggest if one doesn’t get the solarium seating, it is not worth paying for the price. The village though is a good Walk around.

We had an enjoyable anniversary dinner at the Elora Mill Restaurant. Our waiter was the best. He explained the menu fully. The view over the river was fantastic. Food was excellent. We would have preferred if the entrees came with a few potatoes and vegetables rather than have to order sides separately. With the large sides, it was too much food.

Lobster came out cold and was returned.
Waiters said they had a new menu and were not sure about ingredients!
Draught taps were not working!
The only thing that was spectacular was the high prices.
Train your staff and make it a first class experience.

We have, for years, been coming to Elora Mill Inn, although this was our first time since re-opening. Loved the new incarnation. Loved the special tough of glasses of bubbly for our anniversary and all in all it was just lovely. It is too much money for us to stay, but drinks in the afternoon and the dinner were excellent.

We enjoyed a delightful lunch overlooking the water. The food was very very good. Veggie and beef burgers. We shared the buffalo mozzarella app...it was delicious, and the panacotta was scrumptious. Lemon curd was out of this world. Excellent service and beautiful details with the renovation. Great job to all.

We had brunch in a Sunday morning. The location is beautiful and the food is very good. We had an issue with service - we ordered breakfasts that were served with toast. We had finished most of our food before the toast arrived. We were told that the toast was made by a different ‘station’ and that they were slow. We felt that it was miscommunication and poor planning on the part of the kitchen. Even with our comment there was little apology, and certainly no offer of discount (free coffee?). Perhaps no one else complains?
Other than that, the staff was friendly and attentive.

This was our first visit to the Elora Mill since its renovation and opening in 2018. Celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary and so a very special evening. The ambiance was wonderful, the staff couldn't have been nicer. We were served complimentary champagne on our arrival, our waiter was exceptional. We ordered the filet and tuna...both were delicious, beautifully cooked, plated and presented. It was a Friday evening and very busy but not a thing was overlooked. The dessert was again, beautifully presented and wonderful. It was a lovely evening in a gorgeous setting, a very pleasant memorable experience. We will be back!

Booked a table for Father’s Day 1.5 week ahead and asked them specially if they had special menu or event answer no to call back. Booked anyways & then 3 days ahead said they do at $55/pp. service was a little slow wish they had more staff. As for Reg menu it’s not as high end as I thought it would be based on price but what they offered for $55 was good. $35 Corking fee thought a little too steep as it’s Elora. Charcoals in KW is $20. The ambience however is amazing and what they have done aesthetically very nice. So overall would like to see more variety in food. Or prices lowered for the regular menu.

Walked around wanted to see what the Spa had but weren’t allowed to have a peek nor had any spa menus. So a little disappointed that wouldn’t let us take a guided tour like at Langdon hall before you decide to book. That’s needs to be improved with customer service.

Everything about our first-time experience at the Elora Mill Restaurant was perfect. From the time we arrived to the time we left, nothing was missed or shorted. Our server was attentive and making sure that our stay was flawless. The food was perfectly prepared and well portioned. Parking is a bit of a task, but well worth the effort. Thank you for a great time and fantastic meal!
