We have been there before, food was / and thankfully is excellent.
Disappointed that we had a reservation and had to wait 25 minutes to be seated without a simple apology or offer to sit at the bar and have a drink.
We were informed that they were very busy.
Also, when booking, advised that it was my wife's birthday, no one even acknowledged the occasion.
As well, I get the whole " nouveau cuisine ", but they have drastically downsized their portions .

I used to like the Old Mill. The meals have become rather uninspiring and just too simple. We visited the Old Mill in the beginning of December and then in mid February and I found a couple of the same items still on the menu. I'm looking for a culinary sophistication from the Old Mill. I have not found it this time...

Our server was attentive, personable and efficient. The wide variety of food at brunch was lovely. The noise level was a bit high due to the crowd at that time.
All in all it was a good experience. My one disappointment was that I had been assured a birthday recognition for our guest.( a cupcake or something similar).....I had called to double- check that this would happen. It never did.

This was our first time at your restaurant. Your staff are outstanding...very friendly and knowledgable. The food was great! A little pricey perhaps...however, we will be back. We would like to come in the spring/summer to see the grounds from the dining area...

We enjoyed the atmosphere, great service, good size portions, excellent food and ideal scenic venue. This is a rare treat where the restaurant overlooks a cascading waterfall and stream, and the authentic design makes you feel like you are in a special place.

The brunch was good and Michael our server was awesome.....the ambiance at the Mill is still one of my favorites!! Although, we ate at Spencer's in Burlington (same owners) last Sunday and their brunch had a higher quality feel to it. ( Better oysters, crab, etc) Also the mimosas, cappuccinos and espressos were all included in the brunch price at Spencer's. So overall a better value.

The food was so good ,The table we sat at was great ,we asked for a window table and got it . Would have been nice if the table behind us was not so loud you could not hold a conversation with our friend as we could not hear ,That was the only complaint.

We have been for the brunch at the Mill a few times. This time was more of a disappointment. It's a buffet so the server doesn't have to do much. Our server was not at all friendly and was very slow at the few things he was called on for. I waited ten minutes to get a cup of coffee.
Some items on the buffet were exceptional, the prime rib, the bread and several of the desserts.
The omelette made to order was ho hum and many of the vegetables on the hot buffet were not even warm they were cold.
When the brunch is $50 this kind of food quality is unacceptable.

Went Jan 28th for my birthday. It was a cold Sat night. Standing in a long line at the reception desk by the front door waiting for our table was chilli and annoying.
Our table had a lovely view of the waterfall. Our Server was very friendly and efficient. The menu however was, to say the least minimal. There were no appetizers that appealed to us. May we recommend adding a garden salad or even better a Caesar or Greek salad not all diners like Kale. The bread which was a foccacia was excellent. The Entree menu was also minimal but having said that, we are steak eaters and the aged ribeye was AMAZING. It was accompanied by spinach and mushrooms and potatos. This meal was without doubt one of the most delicious we have had in a long time. Yes we would go back for the steak but it would be nice to have a better choice in appetizers.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and thoroughly enjoyed the entire dining experience. I highly recommend the squash risotto and the 45 day dry aged steak (my husband's choice). We received complimentary sparkling wine to toast our anniversary!
We loved it and will be back!

Great spot for special occasions, dates or family Sunday dinners. Food is fantastic and service staff is attentive and courteous. The grounds themself including the waterfalls are amazing and worth viewing on their own.

My husband and I come every year on our anniversary. We look forward to coming each year and are never disappointed with the food or service. The complimentary mimosa's are a special treat and there is such a great variety of brunch options.

We've been going there for Sunday Brunch for number of years because the food is great.
Last Sunday we were shock how much the restaurant has changed. The service was terrible of course; dishes were never picked up by servers unless we asked them to take them away.
constant asking for water and coffee. Also the attitude was not pleasant.
This is not a complaint. Please don't get me wrong but, the music was too loud (it was never this loud in the past by the way).

The location and setting are perfect, so the view is outstanding. The salad was wonderful but the main course (seafood dish) was disappointing; lacked colour, taste and seafood pieces were very small. The service is very good.

After all these years -- decades really -- my party of three had its first disappointing experience. The turkey was tasteless, the stuffing needed some herbs to make it come alive and there was a thimbleful of gravy. Only the red cabbage was flavourful. We were so discouraged that we didn't order either dessert or specialty coffee and just went home.
Outstanding evening for ambiance, was co ...
Outstanding evening for ambiance, was concerned about the service. In particular, we had asked the server if their were any nuts in the rizzoto when it arrived, we did not hear from him until much later, by then the dish was getting cold. He had forgotten until we got his attention.
