    My friends and I had a lovely time at Langdon Hall. For a foodie like myself, I was a bit disappointed. First I was not impressed with the selections on the menu. I ordered poached scallops plus 2 of my other friends. It would have been better to get 2 sea scallops than 5-6 bay scallops. It was tasty but a bit salty. Presentation was nice but accompaniment of 4 small heirloom carrots would hardly qualify it as a main entree. My dark chocolate fudgesicle was just okay. The wine we had Pinot Grigio from Elena Walbach vineyard leaves a delicious taste on the palate.

    gorgeous setting but lately langdon's quality and service has decreased. lacking in flavour and portion sizes being even smaller one would expect much more for the high prices they charge both for food and wine. another note from the appetizer course to mains, we waited 45 minutes. this has always been my favourite place but sadly the vibe has changed so much....hope they improve.

    The food was everything we expected and then some. Presentation of every dish was a feast for the eyes. The food was exquisite, with unexpected tastes coming through in every bite obviously based on unusual ingredients the chef very cleverly uses to compliment the dish. Definitely not your average dining spot.

    Food here is delicately prepared with local ingredients. Dining room is nicely decorated and faces a gorgeous garden. Service is top notch. The only flaw is the proximity of the tables (too intimate with other diners at times). $400 for two tasting menus and a bottle of wine.

    First off the location of the outdoor dining area is beautiful. Set under a lovely old tree with the view of the gardens. For a 5 star property I found the restaurant service to be very poor. They could take some lessons from other fine establishments like Niagara winery region. It won't take much to take this place up a notch to be deserving of its ratings. The presentation of the food is very nice yet the food was less than spectacular, leaving you hungry and staring at the white empty plate. I understand everything is from local farms but the meals can have a bit more food for the price.

    What a wonderful way to mark our 27th wedding anniversary . We had the tasting menu with venison as we did not want the pigeon ( bad experience with pigeon when in Amsterdam). We recommend the wine pairings as it truly did enhance the meal. The menu was well balanced and we really did enjoy the lobster, scallop and venison. Dishes were arranged beautifully and we enjoyed the use of the local herbs. The best tasting menu we had in a long time. Service is impeccable. Serv ice was friendly, attentive, generous and the sommelier shared willingly about the wines. She is very knowledgeable. A wonderful dinner. Great staff including the receptionist who warmly greeted us to Langdon Hall.

    The dinner at Langdon Hall for my 65th birthday lived up to all my expectations. Every bite filled my mouth and soul with requisite sensations. I had the barley and sweet onion tart and the Lingcod. The names and descriptions on the menu did not do justice to the taste experience. For dessert I ordered the Winter Trifle which was also a hit. I have been to Langdon Hall for many special occasions over the years. In fact the first time we went was about 24 years ago. They have kept the place in immaculate condition and I have noticed over the years how they are always redecorating. Nothing gets shabby there. And the service was quiet and elegant. I feel very fortunate that we have a restaurant of this caliber in Waterloo Region.

    We decided to try something different this year and booked a New Year's Day brunch at Langdon Hall. Our party of five really enjoyed the whole experience and made a memorable day for us. The buffet was a feast for the eyes and I was tempted to try a little of everything. My favourite had to be the cheese plate which was accompanied by walnuts, fruit and french bread. Being a cheese person, my main selection was the very cheesy mac and cheese which was very rich and satisfying. The dessert table was equally tempting. I thought the brunch was very good value and I will certainly be back for another special occasion.

    We booked before Christmas for a romantic lunch for 2 on Dec 23. Then the storm hit and knocked out power. Langdon Hall kindly advised that lunch would be a cold buffet instead of full menu. Well when we arrived it was a winter wonderland and were seated, we found a beautiful and delicious hot buffet (check for yummy food!). The food was incredible and we were impressed with what the chef came up with during a power outage!! The wine list was a book! We found something from the working wine refrigerator that was perfect for our lunch. Service was helpful and not intrusive. Our lunch spanned almost 3 hours (because we were enjoying ourselves so much) and not once were we made to feel rushed! It was a magical day! We'll definitely be back!

    We were there on a Saturday night, with a group of 8. They easily accommodated the party size. There was bread and butter to start, then a lovely amuse bouche of heirloom carrots and dip. The table had a wide variety of appetizers and mains. The wine, selected by the help of the sommelier, was excellent and the glasses were replenished often. Dessert was amazing, and they even humored the selection of an appetizer (the scallops were that good) as a dessert. We've been to Langdon at least ten times in the last decade and it never fails to deliver for a special night out. It was a new chef (less than 2 weeks) but the change was not noticeable to us (we had last been in a year ago).

    I think when Jason arrives there is a good chance for LH to regain it's past accoloades, he was spectacular at Auberge. Dinner last night was underwhelming. Good but not what you expect and pay for from LH. I must say though the dessert was excellent, the service as good as ever and the atmosphere excellent, except they put everyone in one end of the dining room which created a high noise level and the feeling of being crowded.

    Loved the venue and ambience but the staff were trying too hard to be "fine dining" and not succeeding. They were NOT accommodating and did not have the competent panache they aimed for. The portions were attractively presented but ridiculously small even for a small eater. I was very disappointed since this has such potential.

    We certainly had great expectations coming to Langdon Hall. My brother has been several times and and the reviews are great. To celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary we decided to try LH The patio was a beautiful, quiet place to spend our dinner but weren't expecting half-naked swimmers cutting through the dining area all evening. The staff were all very personable and knowledgeable. We came here expecting an amazing meal with complex layers of flavour but several dishes were surprisigly bland. The Cured Beef Tenderloin and Blueberry Souffle were rather disappointing. The Glazed Squash with Le Puy lentils was misleading, only about 2tbsp mixed in with barley The overall ambiance and beautiful garden saved the evening.

    As we do everytime we visit Langdon Hall, we had a great experience! Staff are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and far exceed any standard or expectation, the atmosphere is perfect - made even more so when someone started playing the piano near the end of our meal - and the food is to die for. I always joke that Langdon is one place I can never order more than one course, because with the delicious house made bread and butter, and various culinary treats that are comliments of the chef (between courses and sweet treats at the end), I would never have room for everything. We will certainly be back, and hopefully next time it's an overnight stay so we can take advantage of everything else they have to offer!

    Returned to Langdon Hall for dinner. It was just as wonderful the second time. The delicately flavoured digby scallop soup had scallop scented potatoes. The albacore tuna with oyster mushrooms was a captivating combination of flavours, while the seasonal green salad was a generous serving of fresh organic greens. Mains that we ordered included a hearty short rib, a very tasty wild Lake Huron trout which is a local specialty and melt in your mouth fresh lobster. Dessert was an amazing Honey souffle with a thick syrupy earl grey tea infused creme anglaise.

    I love a restaurant where the service staff are not afraid to spell out their favorite dishes rather than try to say that everything is great. We didn't fall in love with all that we ordered but we found everything that we ordered to be creative and of a high standard in taste. This restaurant is not to be missed if you are a foodie who lives or vists the area. Just one more point regarding the opentable reservation, we called to move forward the time of the reservation and also when we showed up, every time it seemed like the person on the other side couldn't locate our booking. In fact, we got seated with the impression that our reservation had not been located but we had been accomodated nevertheles. This needs to be looked into.

    We've been frequenting the dining here for several years now and in our last few visits we have noticed the the quality has slipped. Granted, the food and overall experience is much better than most restaurants, but it no longer matches the levels we expect for the price. The food is fresh and well prepared, however the servings have become noticeably smaller. The service is professional and polite, but on this occasion it was lacking. As an example, my coffee cup arrived before my dessert but I did not actually get any coffee until after I had eaten my dessert - a full 15 minutes after the cup was on the table. I will still recommend Langdon Hall - but conditionally. It has been a lot better in the past.

    food presentation was fine. my vegetables with the lamb were all bitter (cauliflower, parsnip). the sauce for one of my lamb portions look like mayonnaise. the lamb was moist and tender, though not as medium rare as asked. nothing on the dinner or dessert menu looked all that impressive. i would rate my food 7.0 out of 10.0, whereas my girlfriend would rate hers 7.5. considering the steep prices, one would expect his/her meal to be more impressive. you need a gps to find your way back from the washrooms.
