    We were with a group of 7 dining before a show at the St.Jacobs theatre, and the service was excellent. The short ribs never disappoints and the pistachio pasta dish was amazing. Always a great experience.

    The chef here gets a five star alone!!! Amazing food, somewhat pricey but the quality and amount of food one receives weights that out. Our waitress was very efficient and helpful, everything came out as expected and never waited for anything. I would go here again anytime!!

    On Mother's Day The front Hosttess was awful. Not acknowledging of us standing there waiting for her to look up from what she was writing down to greet us. She was writing away, on a full page not looking up to greet us. She wasn't friendly when my boyfriend finally spike up as we had reservations. She wasn't fit for the position, terrible at customer service

    The menu is well curated and portion sizes are great but I don’t think the ribeye was 14oz but flavour and cook of it was good. Kids menu offered a great variety beyond the basics. A great place to go celebrate a special event.

    We’ll be back! Haven’t been here in a while and a group of us decided to go out for a nice meal and we were not disappointed. Our server was polite, down to earth and very knowledgeable. Flat breads, Bruschetta and Wild mushroom soup for starters, they were delicious. Steak, Roast Beef dips, Tofu, pad Thai rice bowl (?) looked great- I ordered the Seared Scallop and Prawn W/ wild mushroom risotto and it was delicious. Scallops could have been a little bigger or and extra one due to size but the risotto was on point…. Great dish and scallops were perfect which is not an easy task at a busy restaurant. Finished up with desserts and the crème brûlée was to die for…. I would come back for just that! Again, we could not have asked for a better server. Charcoal Group always does it right and Wildcraft is truly a great spot in Waterloo.

    I was visiting family for my birthday, the table was round for all of us to talk and catch up, the food & wine was incredible, and our server Ben was amazing and patient with us. He was knowledgeable and took all the dietary needs of a few of us seriously and never had to ask again! Best birthday dinner and family visit I could have ever asked for!

    We were having a family dinner at Wildcraft celebrating the birthday of my wife. It was so nice dining by the fireplace. It was relaxing and enjoyable. The service was excellent. The food was delicious and the price was reasonable. A complimentary dessert was a really nice way to round up the whole dining experience.

    Music is way too loud to be able to have a nice dinner with a group. We were listening to The Who for part of our dinner, could barely hear the server let alone each other. Why on earth would you play The Who during dinner? People that work there should try sitting with a group of people at a widely spaced out table and see if you can talk across the table without shouting.

    We were celebrating a friends BD & had a fabulous time! We asked for a quiet corner for our table of 6 & they put us in the best spot! Fabulous selection of wines & we definitely celebrated the occasion. Our wait staff just seemed to be there when we needed them and the food was fabulous. I had a chicken dish that I'd describe as modern comfort. We will be back.
