A word from Cambridge Mill
With its glass walls, open air terrace, and views of the river and falls, the dining room opens itself to the local landscape. Seen from the outside, the Mill’s Solarium wraps the building to overlook the river while providing an outstanding example of architectural harmony.
Enter the Mill and you step back in time and forward into pleasure. Open hearted and welcoming, upon entry your first glimpse might be of our kitchen staff at work on our Earth to Table cuisine. Everywhere you’ll find limestone walls, hand-carved beams, antiques, and the kind comfort that comes from cozy fireplace nooks, intimate drinking coves, and friendly, courteous service.
To complement all this, there are seasonal menus to impress even the most sophisticated palate. Outstanding food, inviting ambience, memorable service, for any celebration, Cambridge Mill more than welcomes, it warmly embraces.

    The Mill is a beautiful restaurant along the Grand river. From our table we had a fabulous view of the water rushing over the dam and as the sun went down the colours reflecting on the water were amazing. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. Three of us had the chef's choice steak which was a 8oz ribeye. It was cooked to our liking but we found the meat a little too chewy and wished we would have gone for a better cut. The beans that accompanied it were sprinkled with bacon and almonds and tasted incredible. The little roasted potatoes were also delicious. My daughter had the chicken with pesto and she enjoyed everything including the grilled zucchini. We would definitely go back again!

    Having tried the Ancaster Mill it seemed logical to give its sister restaurant a try. It was our anniversary so we were looking for somewhere special. It was not a disappointment. Service was very good, as was the food. Our only complaint, a minor one, were the blinds. Given the unique views of the river it seemed a shame to be peering through semi transparent shades.

    This was a disappointing experience. Previously great times. No table cloths, waiter flustered & not helpful, had to go after him more than once for service. Did not advise that drinks ordered were not covered in the $45 brunch cost. The bill was more than what was anticipated. Food was good as always. We will not be returning for a very long time. Sorry that this is not a happy review.

    Upscale restaurant located on the riverbank. Popular wedding location (there were three on Friday night). Parking was at a premium due to the volume of wedding guests. We had to park down the street. The food was very good. Entrees are $20+. Glass of wine $8+. The service was excellent. Our waiter was witty, knowledgeable and did a great job. Recommended for special occasions.

    The restaurant is very beautiful. However, that was the high. The low was the lack of detail attention, our chairs were full of crumbs, and the hostess just look at us cleaning our own chairs, and offer a 'sorry'. The food: I had grill calamari was more of a deep fry than grill. I also had a Caesar salad that came in a bowl that didn't look very appetizing and the flavour was bland - could you a bit more anchovies. The Sirloin Steak was beautifully cook, but what with bacon bits on the baked potatoes taste processed. My wife had a fish with risotto that was not very well presented and smell a bit fishy. For the reputation and the price, I expected a lot more. The place is top notch. Food should be the same!

The Mill truly deserves its reputation as one of the region's best restaurants. Kudos to all the staff who helped make our evening one to remember.

    Starting with the view things only got better. Our server got us started with a Spanish Cava that we enjoyed tremendously. We then tried a ceviche prepared scallop with some special toppings. Our main course was the red snapper which was well prepared along with some roasted veggies. I requested some broccolini which was fantastic. As it was our anniversary we had two desserts one being the Crème Brule and a chocolate dessert served with homemade ice cream and bananas. All and all it was a special night and we will be returning to the Cambridge Mill. Linda and Bruce Proctor

    Cambridge Mill has a décor which compliments it's location. The food is amazing, world class taste, presentation and good portions, I would compare the food to high end restaurants of Europe / Mediterranean and I have been to numerous over the years. The service is very elegant and friendly without being pretentious. You are made to feel welcome by all the staff was you walk through, your presence is acknowledged. This was our second visit and all the dishes are excellent. The menu has a variety if dishes to please everyone. Definitely one of our most favourite places in Ontario, not to be missed.

    We chose Cambridge Mill for 45th anniversary. Arrived at reservation time and no table available. When questioned we were rudely blown off by the hostess, with no apology for the inconvenience. 35 minutes later we were shown to our table. Service was extremely slow, although the servers were pleasant when we could get their attention. The food when it came, was mediocre with one dinner returned. We have been at the Mill several times before with good experiences but found this latest visit about as bad as we've ever had anywhere. Overall a truly disappointing and mediocre experience. I have recommended them in the past, but canny do so now.

    We've been to the Cambridge Mill for Mother's Day before and again recently for my husband's birthday. We had my aunt from Scotland with us and we were hoping it would be special. We needn't have worried; everything was perfect. Each plate of food was cleared with enthusiasm, even dessert. Our server made the night though. Even though we didn't order much wine (one glass) our service was exceptional. Never was our water glass empty nor did we want for anything. When we asked for a simple change ( I don't like cauliflower ), the server answered, "Of course" without hesitation. Thank you for a memorable evening. You have absolutely figured out how to do it right!

    We had a wonderful meal looking out over the river and dam. The only drawback was I ordered champagne for my wife and they brought a flat glass. This has happened to us before And when you are paying $22 per glass some restaurants are serving old champagne. It is disappointing when your total bill comes to over $150 and they try this trick.

    We recently had a combined birthday lunch celebration for four at the Cambridge Mill, on the recommendation of a friend, and we were very pleased with our experience. The restaurant itself is very elegant and provides a picturesque view of the Grand River through large windows in the dining room. The lunch menu, while not extensive, has a good selection and all of us were happy with our choices. The wine list is comprehensive, although somewhat pricey - a few more under $60.00 selections would be welcome, especially for lunch. Jessie, our server, was excellent and had answers to all questions regarding the menu. The service was professional and not at all rushed so we were able to enjoy a leisurely lunch. Overall - highly recommended.

    Went for an anniversary double date with friends of ours. Got the best seat in the restaurant overlooking the river. Not once did we feel we were being rushed. Were there for about 3 hours. The food selection, portion size and price was fantastic. Food was brought by our outstanding waiter and was delicious. My husband had the prime rib and I had the salmon and cauliflower risotto. Overall a fabulous night out with good friends and no kids! I wouldn't recommend bringing kids unless they are well behaved so you don't spoil it for others. Will definitely go back to the Cambridge mill.
