The Guild exemplifies a new and exciting take on the finest traditions of butchery, cookery and bar-keeping. The name is inspired by guild halls from the past, which served as a meeting places and secret societies for artists and merchants. Honouring local beef, game and fowl, and utilizing traditional cooking techniques over wood and coal, The Guild chefs are preparing a fitting homage to proud Canadian carnivores.

    A very good experience with customers at lunch. Our meeting went longer then planned so we were over 30 minutes late for our reservation. I called as I knew this was happening and the Guild was very accommodating at ensuring we still had seating during a busy lunch period.

    It had been 3-4 years since I was able to go to The Guild. I really enjoyed the food as I did before! I enjoyed by devilled eggs and flat iron steak during lunch! The server was quite attentive and pleasant too.

    Business lunch for 4 people, service and food were fantastic. For our group, the conversation was drowned out a bit by the ambient noise from a busy, open concept restaurant. Great place!

    Great food. Great drinks. Server was a little hipster-y for me. But she was nice enough! Love the layout. Honestly the bathroom was beautiful! Coat check lacked. At the end of the dinner we waited for 10 minutes for the hostess. So I grabbed my own coat and left the silver washer on the stand. 🤣

    Sadly underwhelmed by The Guild. If you have food allergies, there is very little you can have. They have dairy in everything and their gluten-free options are limited. We had the steak tartare, deviled eggs, salmon, asparagus and Caesar salad. Best item was the salmon and asparagus by far. The other items we would not order again. Service and ambiance are excellent! Unless they have a more allergen friendly menu, we won’t be back, as there are just so many other options to dine at.

    Quint place for a nice dinner. Service was really good. Drink and appetizers were perfect. 1 suggestions to the server: Let new customers know that the side dishes can easily be shared between 2-3 persons. It would have been appreciated if he would have let us know know when we were ordering, it was sad to throw so much side dishes out because it was too much. All 4 of us had steaks 2 were cook as asked one of the medium rare was overcook and the well done one was burnt on the outside. Not that big of a deal but this a review.

    Restaurant experience is very expensive, however we knew that before we reserved. Overall the experience is only fair, nothing special and I can name many other venues that are much better. What put a negative vibe on the outing is that our waitress indicated that they don't do baked potato with the ribeye that I ordered and if I wanted an alternative to the mashed potatoes it would be a "a couple of dollars more uptick. I said ok, however, disappointing. When I got the bill it was not a couple of dollars ($2.00) anymore as quoted by the waitress but now it turned out to be $4.00 instead. Waitress misled us. I therefore will never go back and will encourage friends and family not to reserve at The Guild.

    We were well taken care of by our server, especially after he figured out he had brought the wrong bottle of wine. The mussels were my favourite of what we ordered, with the calamari tasting quite fishy.
