The dining room is very inviting and our table at the window gave us a great view of the fall garden. Our server - a very friendly lady - was efficient and very accommodating. She had served us superbly during a previous meal and it was a great pleasure to have her serve us again. Everyone was very pleased with their meal and I found the Apple/Cheddar starter soup a delicious new taste experience. Well done Waring House!

Arrived on time and was seated right away. Server was friendly and attentive. We both ordered a roasted beet salad with sugared walnuts, spinach and blue cheese which was very good. My wife ordered the pasta special which was supposed to be penne with chicken and spinach. It came as rigatoni with only two tiny pieces of chicken and a roasted red pepper cream sauce which she did enjoy.
My meal was gnochi with pulled chicken, mushrooms and fresh local peas which was tasty but only lukewarm. Sent back to be heated. Server said chef apologized.
Ordered lemon lime cheesecake with berry compote and a coffee. Coffee came and when I took my first drink, realized milk was totally soured. Server replaced my coffee and was apologetic.
Server had forgotten dessert and when she brought it there was just the bare cheesecake. We said we would like the fruit as per the menu, and she returned to say there was none left!
Overall ambience was nice. There was live piano in the background and a nice view of the grounds through large picture windows. We rated the food 3 star.
Oh, and we received our bill with no adjustments and no visit with the manager.
Dont think we would return.

Nice ambience and good service. Pickerel could have a few more veggies—they were a bit sparse. Otherwise, a nice meal

The meal for what we paid was ok but not what we expected for the price we paid. The fish I had could have used a sauce and my wife's gnocchi was a little undercooked.

Overall it was underwhelming.

Lovely venue, pretty gardens, suitable for an older crowd. Piano player was a nice addition. The service was good, but food just ok. We did enjoy our evening, but would have liked the food to be a bit better.

Very good food, location overlooking a garden. You have to try their gnocchis if they are on the menu. Nice selection of wines too! If you have a chance, have your apero at the pub just beside. The staff is quite fun and live music is always a plus!

The dining room had a great atmosphere, linen cloths and piano music! We had a wonderful meal just the portions on the liver were over the top. Great service an overall lovely evening. We live in Belleville and nothing compares over there. I am a county girl so always like to go back to my roots and was not disappointed.👍🏻👍🏻

I have dined here many times over the years. The food is always delicious and the service consistently good. Plus, the gardens are truly beautiful. A delight for all the senses.

The food was bland and underwhelming. The service was very slow and below average. We did not know where the host stand was when we walked in and yet two servers who were standing next to us pointedly ignored us for 5 min instead of offering to help. This restaurant definitely does not qualify as “fine dining”. We were extremely disappointed.

Our meal was dissappointingly average. My serloin was overcooked and my wife’s fish undercooked. The carrots were hard.

The Waring House grounds are beautiful and the atmosphere was pleasant enough. But I am sorry to say that the dinning experience for myself was quiet off putting. I had ordered a medium rare steak with a salad instead of the potatoes while my friend next to me ordered a medium steak with potatoes. When the food arrived my friend ended up with the medium rare steak potatoes and my salad. Our waiter apologized and said someone else had platted the dishes. I took the salad from my friend only to discover it had no dressing. The other disappointment was the steak was over cooked. As my friend had already started eating and was enjoying her steak and also had the potatoes we could not trade plates. I have only send food back once in all of my dining experience and this was only the second time I have had to do this. The plate did come back and the salad was dressed this time. I tried the steak again and the first bite was alright and told the waiter it was ok. When I proceed to take the second bite I noticed that the steak was even more cooked and this must of been the same steak. At this point I did not bother to call the waiter back and just left it on the plate half eaten. I have been to Prince Edward County main times and have had excellent food the majority of the time. Now that the County is getting more popular and there are more restaurants opening up I feel The Waring House will need to refocus on making sure the experience for all their diners is on par with the prices that they charge. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this restaurant. This was my first time to The Waring House and even some of my friends who have been there before said the food was not as good as it has been in the past.

We went on a date during Countylicious. The food was very tasty - I had the pork belly, pork back ribs and creme brulee ice cream all of which I recommend. The ribs were a bit underdone so even though I was given a steak knife, I had to eat them with my hands but oh well the dry rub on them was addicting. The live piano was great - the pianist played a great mix of recognizable classics and newer tunes. Service was a bit stiff and seating a bit cramped.
