  • "Even a last minute change to our reservation and it was accommodated. Very friendly and pleasant staff make the experiences here one of the best in Ontario. Food is above par and flavourful each time. We really should not wait as long between visits."

  • "Dave our server ruined my wife's birthday celebration. He was unfriendly and inattentive. The sarcastic comment he mAde when my wife declined alcohol set the tone. He couldn't remember to bring me water, he never did bring a bread basket refill and didn't bother to check to see if our meals were to our liking even once. He have nothing to say to us and didn't bother to wish my wife a happy birthday even though the host assured me that he had been told. We enjoyed our food and the host was very nice to us. What a shame that we cannot recommend. ."

  • "I came out Friday night with a friend knowing the food would be good. I did like everything except for my cut of prime rib. It was 50% fat and rind and extremely chewy. I was very disappointed with this but didn't want to say anything at the time and disappoint my friend. The special coffees at the end of the meal were warm not hot. Service was slow for it not being busy as well. Will come back but not for the prime rib."

  • "We have had the occasion to dine here THREE times in the last week, which is a story in itself. The food here is excellent, with nothing left out. A great selection of appetizers, terrific entre choices and a nice dessert list. We had three different waiters, all of whom knew what they were doing. We were welcomed by John, Ron and Peter, and Ron, whom we knew at his old restaurant even remembered the salad I liked and had it specially prepared for me. I can't say enough about this restaurant which was busy on all the nights we were there. I highly recommend it for special occasions of any kind as the staff is well prepared to deal with every kind of event. Make sure to go!"

  • "A special group of 4 of us, take time to go out together, usually 3-4 times a year with money we've saved on a weekly basis, from NOT wasting it on lottery tickets. We collectively agreed, that we hit THE JACKPOT by coming to Aberfoyle Mill. Reservations were quick, and right from the moment we were greeted, and quickly seated in a wonderful anti-room table, we almost immediately began to "visualize" the kind of experience we were about to have, and though we've been to MANY different fine dining locations (new one each time), THIS, by FAR, was the nicest evening we've had out so far. The owner came around several times, the waitress was the kind that EVERYONE wishes for...she was VERY efficient, the FOOD was amazing! :)"

  • "We always enjoy our visits to Aberfoyle. The food is always exquisite and the caesar salad is the best . It is a special occasion that we are celebrating when we come to Aberfoyle and are never disappointed."

  • "We attended the Aberfoyle Mill to celebrate our wedding anniversary, just as celebrated our wedding dinner there. As always, the Mill was most enjoyable; the food was excellent, the ambience perfect and the service was better than any restaurant in recent memory. We even were fortunate to have my special request of a table near the fireplace accomodated. Thank you for a wonderful evening."

  • "Reservations? I'm glad we made them ... ahead of time. And that's the only type of reservation I would have for this place and dining experience. Service was prompt and courteous. Two of us selected the Prix Fix menu (lamb chops), our guest chose the farfalle. Tastefully presented and tasteful too. Waiter (Pierre) suggested a French merlot, which complemented the entrees well. That evening there was a fund raiser for AIDS support, which was invitational but not "pushed" -- again, nicely handled! "

  • "I don't have the opportunity to go to the Mill often but when I do you can expect a warm welcoming, fine food and consistently good service. The mushroom soup and deerfield greens salad were an excellent beginning, followed by an extremely tender and tasty new york striploin steak. The service was superb, the ambience was warm, intimate and romantic. The wine list was not extensive but included a good selection. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Great service, excellent food! Noise level was loud because of function going on upstairs, lots of kids running across the floor, made it difficult to hear each other while trying to talk; once function ended noise level was good for talking, nice music in the background."

  • "Twice a year I visit and the consistency is amazing. Even the waiter has been there for years. The restaurant is in a old mill that still has working parts. Very nice atmosphere. But the food is the main event."

  • "We have been going to the Aberfoyle Mill for over twenty years. I have always been impressed with the quality of their food and their menu. This time was no exception. Little has changed in the decor of the restaurant over the years and makes the ambiance a bit tired. However I would go back in a minute for the attention to service and quality of the food. Bravo!!"

  • "The ambiance was wonderful, complete with fire in a large fireplace. Very cozy on a cold winter night. Great place to catch up with friends/family. The noise level was perfect, with enough energy in the room, yet it was easy to hear each other. It felt like we were the only two in the room and could have talked all night. Service, food, wine, and attention to detail were all top-flight. Wonderful evening!"
