About Braxton's Restaurant & Bar at The Algonquin Resort
One of the first chefs at The Algonquin, in the late 1800s, was the brilliant and respected G.F. Braxton. His philosophy of providing uncompromising quality in an elegant but casual environment continues to inspire us to this day.
Centrally-located in the main building of The Algonquin, Braxton’s is a place to gather. Here, families discover old favourites, the adventurous try something new, and friends meet for drinks. With a warm, friendly, but elegant atmosphere, everyone feels relaxed, whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The menu changes seasonally, but expect a commitment to fresh ingredients, an emphasis on local, and brilliant attention to detail. This is certainly not your average dining experience.

The service and ambiance was fantastic, our server, Ben, made it a very enjoyable evening. The food however, was disappointing. One of our mains, a filet minion was undercooked, while the chicken was overcooked. Rhe sides were OK, but nothing more than just OK.
My husband and I recently dinned at Braxton's with a another couple. This was a special occasion as we eloped that day. I made the reservation online and put a note to let them know of the special occasion. I had assumed that there would have been some type of acknowledgment, but nothing was said or done. The food was good, but everyone in the group found the portions very small.
Could be better
The salmon appetizer came out quickly & was very good, but things went downhill from there. The food was tasty enough (lamb wellington & honey chicken), but the portions are very small & I don't expect or like vast quantities of food on my plate. Both were unevenly heated, meats hot but accompaniments lukewarm & on cold plates. Three small pieces of green bean & carrot do not a vegetable make. The service was poor; we waited undue amounts of time to receive our mains, have the plates cleared, order dessert, etc, despite there being very few other diners. Wines are overpriced; a run of the mill chablis $20 per glass. Not the worst meal ever, but far from the best for what we paid (over $200). We would not return.
I ordered a filet medium and it came seriously overcooked and dry. My wife ordered the halibut and the seasoning appearing to be nothing more than chili powder dusted over the fish prior to cooking. Not very tasty. On talking to another patron their experience was very similar. Much improvement needed before we consider returning.
The restaurant offered something for every taste; it's obvious a lot of thought went into choosing unique dishes and ingredients with a Martime flavor! $10 for a glass of Jackson Triggs is too much, but I guess you pay for the ambience and experience, which is lovely! It is really a romantic spot but would also work nicely for small groups of people. It was really quite private. So happy the Algonquin is open again. Wait staff attentive and pleasant!
There is a limited menu at
There is a limited menu at this point (just reopened). The food was good but not great and the wine selection is also good but the charging $ 55 for a nice $ 15 bottle of wine is bit high. The service was very good - although there was a problem with the internet - so paying with a credit card took a bit of fiddling.
