Aberfoyle Mill Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. This was our third time at The Mill and again we were very pleased with the service and our meals were delicious! My husband had the clam chowder and I had the Caesar Salad as appetizers. We both had the beef tenderloin which was cooked exactly how we ordered it!! We also got to sit by the fire which was lovely!
The entire evening was ruined by the incredibly poor service we received. Our waiter was condescending and did not try to understand my wife's request for a completely bland meal. She ordered grilled salmon, totally plain (no spices, no pistachio coating , nothing) which we have had in the past. The salmon arrived with black specks on it. When questioned, the waiter said "it's pepper, it's OK just taste it" which prompted a strong response by me and when the waiter finally agreed to take the order back, he wanted to take mine and my daughter's as well which upset her to the point of tears. When the order came, my wife said it was very good.
My prime rib was excellent but my daughter's dinner had gotten cold and even after requesting it be heated, it came back cold. By that time we were quite fed-up with the terrible service and did not peruse that issue. The management did cover the cost of my wife's dessert and our coffee, thanks, but the damage was beyond repair. We specifically came to the Mill because, in the past, we have had very good dining experiences including our wedding dinner a few years back.
Food and service was excellent. We found the noise level quite high, which may have been due to the room our table was in. Even though we mentioned we were celebrating our 22nd anniversary they sat us in a room with no windows, we would have preferred to sit in the main dining room where the ambience was much nicer.
My friends were delighted with their appetizers of paté and spicy shrimp, and the two salads were fine, but not remarkable. Those that ordered prime rib loved it, and the duck order was also delicious. My tuna was a bit overdone, and from my perspective, it didn't seem to match the accompaniments. That being said, the tuna flavouring was lovely.
The service was exceptional, we were very well looked after by David. The restaurant is cozy and comfortable, with the mill itself in its midst. We chose Aberfoyle because it was on our way back from Stratford (our friends to Mississauga and we to Hamilton). Very convenient for a post matinee performance!
We had a wonderful Sunday lunch with our family celebrating a birthday. We had dined there on one other occasion for dinner and both times the food and service was outstanding. On our most recent visit we had a larger group with 2 small children. The staff were very welcoming and went to great lengths to ensure everyone's needs were met, particularly for the children.
We went for our 5th wedding anniversary after I had been there a few weeks earlier for a work dinner for the first time. Both times I got the salmon which hands down is the best salmon I have ever had! My wife had the prime rib which was very tender. Great atmosphere in the old Mill, but the food more than anything was what made it worth the drive here for us!!!
Excellent service and food. Love the character of the place and the variety. Truly enjoyable. I have been doing more vegan eating and appreciated the accommodating service. Thank you for the sweet sampler dessert tray for my friend's birthday. Lovely and truly tasty!
Always great cuisine at the Mill. Attended with two friends for lunch. One vegetarian and wonderful options on a separate menu for her. The express lunch offerings were delicious and quick but not rushed. The dessert sampler was yummy and appreciated our server explaining the portion. Certainly enough for all of us and bday girl could take some chocolate cake home as well. Server was friendly, informative and timely.
Table was in the middle of the room by the entrance. Quiet hard to talk and will request table in a corner next time.
Our meal was very good and we were seated in the part of the restaurant that we requested.
The only thing that were weren't too happy about was the wait between courses and the cold coffee. There were two weddings happening that night, so that unfortunately contributed to the wait. I have been to this restaurant on countless occasions and always had a good meal and the wait times were never an issue. You would think that if there were two weddings and many other people dining in the main restaurant, you would make sure you had enough staff. Other than that, I would return again.
We celebrated our anniversary by going to the Aberfoyle Mill and were not disappointed - from the moment we walked in, we were welcomed and given wonderful seat overlooking the crowd. When our server got busy, the greeter came and served us tea and dessert - yummy!
The atmosphere was rustic with antique accents. We sat at a table for 2 overlooking the main restaurant which was private and romantic. The service was prompt and our server was very helpful and polite. The food was exceptional and you definitely received enough. We shared the desert sampler hoping to finish the meal with something light since we were already satisfied. This was a bit of miscalculation since the desert sampler was large but so worth it.
