    I find the parking lot right now with construction messy, I have always though that the walk to the Restaurant was not good especially for seniors, there was a lady in front of me with a cane and I didn't think she would make it up. Also I would like to see a bit more lighting in the restaurant seating areas. I have been coming to the Old Mill since I was in my early twenties and Im in my 70's now, haha, so a familiar outing for me, weddings, etc. A special place for sure. Cant wait to return with more friends from Bramalea where I know live but I am originally from west Toronto.

    We celebrated our son-in-law's birthday in the terrace dining area. It's a lovely room with big windows overlooking the grounds, which are lush and include a fountain. The food was superb, from the appetizers to the main courses. Our waiter was attentive and charming. When I made the reservation, I mentioned that the occasion was a birthday celebration, and, at the end of our meal, the waiter brought my son-in-law a plate with a sampling of desserts with a lit birthday candle. I hadn't asked for that, so I was very pleasantly surprised. Marianne, a recent addition to the Old Mill's excellent dining room staff, arranged for that little surprise. The evening was perfect.

    My wife and I took our friend from overseas to this restaurant for buffet lunch. The $26.95 price includes hot roast beefs, pork loin, chickens, fish and others, cold dishes includes salmon, shrimp, mussels etc, choices salads and desserts, it really worth the money. She really enjoys the foods and the environment. She will recommend her friends overseas and if she will visit Toronto again, she definitely will come back.

    Dined on 8/12/2014
    As we celebrated our 25th anniversary we enjoyed every second of it. Although we have dined here on several past occasions our server made this a more memorable anniversary with her kindness and attentiveness. Not to mention the selection at the buffet was out of this world and very well stocked/managed by staff as well. Would highly recommend the Old Mill for any occasion any time of day as we have had brunch, dinner and afternoon tea's here as well. Never disappointed. It will be a pleasure to return to the Old Mill whether a special occasion or simply we desire fine dining at it's best.

    I went for the family dinner buffet while I was staying at the hotel. The hotel was great, but buffet was not. The selection was poor and what I did find to eat was not very good! I know it was not just me, my finance felt the same and he will eat anything! While the staff at the hotel were very friendly, the waiters at the restaurant were not at all.

    The service was very poor. Waited 20 minutes to get bill. They tried to take away our plates before we were finished. The waitress was very talkative to the neighbouring table and totally ignored our table. Was not impressed this time and have been there many times before. Also, found it to be too expensive so will probably not return. Food was starting to dry out and wasn't replenished as it should have been. We also were trying to impress guests so this wasn't the restaurant to do it in.

    My girlfriend and I went to The Old Mill for our two year anniversary. I didn't want a crowded place like many downtown so we made a reservation there. I used open table asking for a quiet table for our anniversary. The atmosphere is way under-priced, and the service was excellent (career waiter). The host came to check on us and wish us a happy anniversary, and the chef sent out a complimentary small dessert plate which was very tasty (gluten free for my girlfriend). We loved the quiet, the decor, the staff, the wine list (well-priced) and the appetizer and main course. We loved it and will go back again before the end of the summer. Thanks to the staff for a good anniversary dinner. Success!

    The food was delicious. We both had the watermelon gazpacho and found it was fresh and tasty. I had the lamb curry entree and thought it was fragrant without being too strong. I didn't try the chicken but was told it was great. My only issue with the lunch was the service. It took over 20 mins for someone to come by our table. Took another 10 minutes to get water. It seemed as if some areas had ample servers and our section did not. A couple different people came to assist us and one was just the friendliest. He definitely made up for earlier.

    Went on a Friday evening - several large groups with children that kind of took over the place and was very noisy and got most of attention. There were a few other couples like ourselves and service was very slow. I did not expect it to be quick but this was too slow. The noise level was so high from the groups that we did not know there was background music until the 2 larger groups had left. I get the potential of the experience that the Old Mill may have to offer but on this night do not feel it was delivered on. Desert and appetiser were very good but the main course was small and just a pass. The place was not packed and did not seem to be enough staff to handle the numbers dining that night.

    Had the buffet. Lots of food which looked nice but it was very mediocre, at best. Thank goodness, we sat in the Garden Room (pretty view) because otherwise very dark and gloomy. Very slow to remove used plates and had to ask for coffee refills. Staff was pleasant, just inefficient. No one in our party would return as there are many much better places to choose to go.

The buffet was very generous and a great selection of food so we did not particularly miss out. The atmosphere is nice at The Old Mill and all of our group mentioned being impressed.

    The Old Mill Restaurant has wonderful food, great service and terrific ambience. From inside or out, the view is so pretty. The Summerlicious menu gave enough choices for all kinds of foodies. The appetizers and entres were delicious. The desserts were disappointing. The millefeuille eas definitely not a millefeuille as it should be. It was dry and tasteless. The chocolate brownie was better but also a bit dry and not wonderful. The noise level was low so you can relax and chat. The service, however, was impeccable. Our overall dining experience was excellent.

    We were not offered regular menus, only a prix-fixe menu. This is understandable since we were dining as a group (12), but I would have expected them to at least have offered. Furthermore, our waiter did not even seem to know about any items on the menu when we asked, nor did he bother to ask a superior for more information. He also didn't have anyone helping him carry out the food from the kitchen, so everyone got their meal at drastically different times. The restaurant was also way too dark, and to top it off, the restaurant double-charged us for the deposit required to hold a reservation. For such a fancy restaurant I would have expected much, much more from the service department. The food was pretty good, which was the saving factor.

    Overall the dinner was good. very nice variety of cold salads and appetizers along with a lovely cheese cracker station. The assortment of hot buffet items were well thought but I did find that many of the side dishes - roasted red potatos and steamed vegtables were cold and had to be turned to find hot ones. There was only 1 poultry dish (a bbq chicken) and the carving station was lamb and a very rare prime rib. It would have been nice to have a turkey or a carved chicken. Pop was very expensive at almost $3 dollars per glass. Coffee was good as per my 2 other guests but the orange pek. tea was horrible (Mother parkers). At the price charged $37/pp I think they should move up to a Tetley or Red Rose. Desserts were overall average.

When checking in for reservations I was told that there would A. be no tea for us and B. we were to sit for lunch instead. totally not what I wanted for my friends birthdays. Then when trying to get answers, was met with an argumentitive front staff and that there would be no tea for us. DISAPPOINTED
