Langdon Hall is our favourite restaurant in Ontario. Exceptional in every way - a very special ambience as well. When you leave down the long drive, you are so sad to go!

Service and food have changed since we were here a few years ago. I mentioned in the booking it was our 30 th wedding anniversary but it was not mentioned to us at all during our stay. Too bad we used to rave about how wonderful it was to dine here.

Dining at Langdon Hall is truly a marvellous experience. From the food to the setting, in the garden, under the leaves of a gigantic tree gives one a sense of quiet luxury. A moment to cherish.

A very disappointing Sunday brunch. Food had no seasoning - bland at best. (Seemed to be a common complaint. Table next to us sent back their pork dish as inedible. Ordered trout and then sent that back bc it was tasteless .)
Pasta was heavy in a weird chicken broth of sorts. Burrata salad was drowned by a tasteless tomato water poured over it at serving. The burrata was very grainy and swimming in this water. Looked awful. Tasted worse .
While salt is often minimal, herbs are used to add flavour. Not so here .

Drink order never received. Coffee at end never received .
Lengthy wait times - first for a table that was being fixed for us only to be told we had been overlooked and someone else got our table.
Lengthy wait times between courses.

Staff very pleasant BUT inattentive, slow, and very forgetful about everything.

Overpriced for awful food and worse service.

Not worth the drive.

The lunch menu disappointed. I had the scallop sashimi. It was underwhelming. My husband had the torchon de foie gras, which was much better. We both had the trout, which while properly cooked had less than exciting sides. Overall, this felt like something I could have done myself, which is not saying much for one of the best restaurants in the country. I had looked forward to eating here for literally years, but I don’t expect to be back. Uninspiring food; perhaps the chef was off on Saturday? That said, the service, provided by a young Irishwoman with a sense of humour, was excellent.

Very costly for the experience. The appetizers and the main course were lukewarm at best and oversalted. The scallop ravioli which sounded great turned out to be boring lacking in any taste except salt, with the pasta being undercooked and hard.
The short rib entree was not appealing visually at all and looked like a segment of cadaver that I saw many times in my anatomy training.
I had taken my business partners family including his 8 year old daughter. She ordered Mac and Cheese off the kids menu. It was lacking in cheese and would have been fine for adults but was not designed for the unrefined palate of a young girl.
I have been to Langdon Hall many many times and this is perhaps the worst experience I’ve had.

Loved the whole experience, the food was amazing, great service and great recommendations from our waitress! For a tasting menu, the speed at which the different dishes came out was just perfect - I usually find that you wait a while in between, in most places. My boyfriend and I had a great time, the venue made sure to make this birthday dinner one to remember :). I would definitely visit again!
I think next time I will make sure to come a bit earlier so I can enjoy the garden before dinner; it was too late (and dark) by the time we finished dinner. I'd also recommend going for dinner before 8:30pm as we finished our dinner close to midnight!

Everything was very good, or outstanding, with one exception: the portions for the main course were far too small. If the portions for the components of the main course were two or three times the size the cost to the restaurant would be very little but the value added would be tremendous.

A friend and I splurge once a year when we meet to celebrate our birthdays. The day we visited LH was warm and sunny so we opted to eat on the terrace. I ordered the beet- gratin, halibut and mini sweets for dessert. All was delicious. My friend enjoyed squid, the spatchcocked hen, and LH ice cream for dessert. We enjoyed the afternoon and stayed for several hours without feeling hurried. We have always enjoyed our annual splurge at LH, and although we didn’t avail ourselves of the spa this time, on other visits it has been superb.

We went to Langdon hall for my husband's birthday and had a fabulous time. The food was amazing and our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about both the dishes and the wines that would compliment the dishes. If you have not been and do not want to travel to Toronto for a wonderful meal - Langdon hall is worth the visit.

Hate to do this, but honestly, there are a lot of other restaurants in Toronto that I would prefer over Langdon Hall. Given that I am from Toronto, it is more than a minor inconvenience for me to make it over to Cambridge, which may have coloured my experience. The execution of the kitchen was excellent, but the food itself was not so innovative or super refined that it justified the reputation.

I know Langdon Hall earned Relais & Chateau designation, but service was not to the level I expected, and given the price, a bit disappointing. Compared to Alo which also earned the same distinction, I would say Alo was heads and tails above in both food and service. To be fair, I had lunch at Langdon Hall, and Alo only has dinner service, so maybe it's not a fair comparison.

I would go back to Langdon Hall again, but for the ambiance and to visit Cambridge proper. But I would not consider the restaurant a destination in itself.

At our arrival, since we arrived at 4:00pm and the dining room opened at 5:0”pm we sat at the solarium area and ordered drinks and some food, after 1hr; no food was served and when we were ready to go into the dining room, they were going to served the food, people that arrived after us were already served!
My daughters were very hungry that’s why we ordered something ahead!
The drinks are the only ones that they brought us! The waitress was very unfriendly, I can’t not remember her name at the solarium area.
The manager took care of the bill from the solarium. However, the apperitizer that I ordered it wasn’t the one that I ordered!
I was not going to complain, I was too upset by then. the service was too slow, seems that the table and the location was concentrated only in one area!
I understand that the mark up for the wine is up to 300 % but I believe it was perhaps 600% mark up in this case.
We ordered a Chatea/ Beaugerdad. 2010
$290.00 + Etc. we enjoyed it but I believed it was tremendously marked it up for the type of wine🧐
In overall, I am not impress, I can’t not give you a ⭐️⭐️⭐️ !!
Service has to improve, neither to say the Port that I ordered as well, they had to open another bottle, since the one in the decanter it was terrible and the one they gave me needed to age!
Thank you for the experience!
However, we would like to go back and have a better time! With more time and a better service !

Barely a welcome (someone from the desk looked up from the desk briefly after a few seconds. ). No
one directed us to coat room or elsewhere. Certainly no one offered to help or take our coats. No one suggested what we might do (look around at rooms??, play pool, etc??) as we were early. They kinda said the bar is down there .... waitress didn’t introduce self. Another server kinda hunched over each of us as he described a morsel on a piece of slate to begin. No servers dressed up much. My app fantastic, and one other person’s too, but not one of us thought our main was excellent - which for the price and reputation, we would expect. Portions we knew would be small but well presented so ok with that. All of us have been to many outstanding restaurants, but LH insistently disappoints

#5 on best in canada, but easily top of our global list we keep.
We did the tasting menu with wine pairings.
The food was more than exceptional, full of flavor, surprises and somolier created perfect parings, that added to the experience with each bite and sip.
If you are anywhere within 100km of this place, make the effort to go. You won’t be dissapointed.
