 (Montreal)·Dined on December 25, 2016

Our family had very good memories of this restaurant (years ago) but this was a very disappointing meal. Most first courses were dull and tasteless and the gigot d'agneau was tough and overcooked. Much overpriced!

Though the outside scenery is enchanting, the inside needs a little makeover and tender loving care - the floor covering where our table was located was sticky and ugly looking.

It's too bad because this used to be one of the good restaurants in the area.

Pauvre qualité de la nourriture - certainement pas un très bon rapport qualité-prix!

Vraiment dommage!

Sans oublié la chalheureuse accueil dès notre entrée dans votre chalheureux bâiment d'anthan!

Merci de vos bons services!

 (Toronto)·Dined on October 25, 2016

Service was impeccable; waiter was subtle and helpful. Amuse bouche was a tasty sea scallop; apple liqueur as palate cleanser was refreshing. I had surf and turf as main - beef was tender but lobster tail was just so so. Overall excellent experience.

The restaurant was in a scenic location. I thought the food was fine, but probably not quite worth the price. I found the service to be somewhat slow and indifferent.

 (New York Area)·Dined on August 21, 2016

Everything was wonderful, my friend and I enjoyed our 3 course meal - also appreciated that it is good value for quality of food. My one very very small issue is that I mentioned we were celebrating my friends birthday and it was not acknowledged. It certainly didn't put a damper on our night just a little disappointed.

Ambiance Plus!

 (Ottawa)·Dined on July 10, 2015

This restored Mill in a peaceful, historic, and artistic village, offers a relaxed environment in which to enjoy their two dining venues that provide indoor, terrace, and outdoor dining above the rushing waters below. Disappointed that the more formal restaurant, The Muse, was not open for lunch, so we opted to dine in the second (and less elegant) restaurant off the bar area. Food did not disappoint, although not as "special" as we had expected. Wine prices (for bottles) were relatively high. Would like to give it another try in the evening at The Muse restaurant.

 (Los Angeles)·Dined on May 4, 2015

This is a bit of a drive from the "center of things"(Ottawa), but sooo worth it. At first I was disappointed to find upon arrival that the restaurant was closed for a private function (even though they had continued to accept reservations). Their decision was to set up in the hotel's casual restaurant that night, and dress it up with table cloths etc., to give the feel of a formal room -- but only half of it. The other half remained casual. Kind of odd, but it was fine, and we still got the waterfall view. I have to say, though, that that was where the compromise ended. The server, Gabriel, (although he normally worked the casula room), was just wonderful -- so personable and knowledgeable and his recommendatons were spot on. The food was absolutely brilliant! The complimentary appetizer they brought was delicious according to my dining partner, but it did not suit my no-red-meat diet. So, the chef prepared a vegetarian version for me that was heavenly -- and my partner happily had seconds of his dish :-) After enjoying our 2 appetizer courses, main, and dessert (a lot of food) we were not feeling stuffed in the least -- just really really really satisfied and delighted with the exquisite cuisine... with the whole experience, in fact. Too bad it's so far from LA :-)

Innovative discovery menu

 (Ottawa)·Dined on March 8, 2014

We had the 6-course discovery menu. Great to know that there are restaurants within a short driving distance from Ottawa that still do a nice blind tasting menu at an affordable price. The menu was innovative, nicely presented, well seasoned and tasted great. The only "surprise" was that a number of dishes were quite a bit influenced by Indian spices. Was expecting more of a classic French/Quebec treatment. Hopefully it is a seasonal menu and the next time if we visit Wakefield again, it will be different...
