    We like this chain and generally get what we expect. This time was enjoyable except for the absence of several signature cocktails, no bas or boccincini on pizza despot the description. I think O&B at Blue Mountain can do much much better- even during shoulder season

    i requested a romantic table for my husband and me via Open Table, and O&B delivered. The hostess even said Happy Anniversary to us as we entered the restaurant. Food was very good, service was excellent. SPG members receive 10% off lunch and dinner. The bar atmosphere left a little to be desired when we came back later for dessert. Annoying music and loud guests. But overall a very enjoyable experience at O&B. Would definitely go again.

    Went for brunch following an average thanksgiving dinner. Gotta tell you, I think I could make a better omlette. The good news is it was so greasy i didn't have to chew it. Luckliy, my child had the buffet, so that allowed me to have some of his cheerios, which was a much better choice. Wow. Amazing how this place continues to put people through with such an average product.

    This place is tired. Been going for years every time we are in collingwood. We stay at the Westin so don't really feel like going out at night so we eat in the hotel. Had dinner there as well as brunch. Dinner was okay. Cold. But I was hungry so I ate it. Brunch was abysmal. Service was fine. The banquette we sat in was falling apart. Don't think we'll go back.

    We enjoyed our dinner here because we brought our own wine ($15 corkage) and had great company. The food was just okay. Calamari-mushy Goat cheese and Spinach dip- Tasted good but small amount of cheese for $19 Lamb- Very good Mac and cheese- delicious and probably will cause a heart attack if you eat it all Shrimp pasta- bland but lots of shrimp Creme Brulee- perfect Carrot cake- okay. We would return but more for the ambiance and great byow policy.

    I had made reservations a couple of days prior and I am glad I did. By 7:30pm the restaurant was full. It was our anniversary and had requested a quiet table for 2 and the hostess gave us a booth away from the main area. The food was fantastic, but took a llittle while to get it. We weren't in a hurry, but we were aware of the time it took between receiving our appetizer and main course.

    I visited here while i was in the area and had gone before. My previous visit was mediocre but thought i'd give it another try, this recent visit will be my last try. I ordered a "smashed greyhound" which was more pulp than there was actual drink, every time i took a drink it felt like i need to pull a mint leave or other pulp out of my mouth. I ordered a BBQ chicken pizza which tasted like absolutely nothing. It contained a mildly sauced pizza with bland dried out pulled chicken and about 5 bits of pineapple and felt extremely undercooked and room temperature. There are other restaurants in the area and i would definitely avoid this place especially at the high price for low quality.

    A good meal, but we found the place noisier than expected as the restaurant is essentially part of the Westin Hotel lobby. Wine list was limited, which isn't that important to us. Our server was quick and attentive. Food was tasty, served quickly and hot. Not quite the experience of their Bayview location, but one of the nicer eateries in the Blue Mountain village.

    Went here for our romantic night out. Asked for a table tucked away and then got a group of 8 kids sit directly across from us. Started with cocktails. The slight detour tasted amazing. Ordered food. Food came fast. Our waitress it caught with the table of kids going through all the options and ingredients. I would have ordered wine with my main but waitress was nowhere to be seen. She had to ask the manager to look after us. Was annoyed about the wine it put me off wanting dessert. Manager was great also made the cocktails offered tea and coffee and apologized for our waitress. Heard nothing but great things about the dessert. Would have spent more on wine and dessert had the manager been asked to step in sooner. Great food so not all bad

    We had dinner with friends over the sound of fire sirens going off for at least 30 minutes. Completely unpleasant - we couldn't even talk hear each other talk. Then, they forgot to make one of the entrees and messed up another. While they couldn't do anything about the alarm, some sort of compensation for a brutal experience was expected...but nothing.

    Was a little hard to find and we were a little late. Upon arrival I was informed that if I hadn't shown up, my table would have been given away. Nice welcome. Initially, servers were helpful. All 4 of them. However, food was served cold to two out of three guests. Although once our actual server was informed, he immediately got to work in replacing the food and within 5 mins, had food back on the table that was to our liking. I'm in no hurry to return. It wasn't awful but nothing special. Portions were small and we were forgotten easily by our server at times.

    Overall pretty good. Ordered 12 oysters on their Oyster special. Only got 11. They were very small, not the same quality as the O & B restaurant in Toronto (Biffs). A couple of mistakes on the bill that had to be corrected. Other than that very pleasant, but $16.95 for 6 spring rolls? Come on.

    For plant based diners like us, there was a few options on the menu. The food was unfortunately bland and under seasoned. Our waitress was rude and snobby at the beginning of service but tried to redeem herself as the night went on. The food was not worth the price and we will not be going back.

    Went here to celebrate my father's 60th birthday. We made reservations for 7. We showed up at 6:50 and the hostess didn't let us in because we were early (normal restaurant, they let you go into the bar area until they call you). She didn't ask if we wanted to sit outdoors even though it was a beautiful evening but did ask other guests. The waiter was good and friendly however, we ordered our food soon after we sat down and we waited 50 minutes to be served! The restaurant wasn't very busy when we got there (not even half full) so we don't quite understand why it took so long. When we finally got to ordering dessert, it took another 15 min to bring it out (it was just 2 creme brulees!). We were not impressed and will not return.

    Recently visited for lunch. Pasta dish described as: WHOLE WHEAT ROTINI, O&B Blue smoker chicken, herb-roasted mushrooms, arugula pesto & sweet peas. You would expect a pesto-based sauce, no? The sauce was completly tomato-based. The pesto? Hardly a few specks visible. Overall taste of the dish not bad, but menu description can definitely be improved. Made a special trek to the restaurant, it's annoying when the dish is not described properly.

    Dinner started off horribly. It was 8:10 pm and the hostess refused to seat us, because we didn't have reservations. I ended up going on opentable and getting a reservation for 8:30. We showed up again, and the hostess graciously sat us. I was very excited about their roast sunday dinner, because I always love a good roast. That's primarily the reason why I didn't want to go anywhere else for dinner within the Blue Mountain resort. We waited and waited for our entrees to come out. It finally came out after an hr of waiting. Even though we expressed out displeasure, the manager did not even offer drinks/dessert on the house, or discount on the bill. By the way, the roast is not worth the wait, it was too dry. I'm never ever coming back.

    Dined on 7/26/2014
    The location was great, the ambiance was great, some of the food was great, just don't order the ravioli (hence my lower review on my food order). It was watery and has no taste. The food also took a long, long, long time to get to us after we ordered: an hour at least. The waitress even came by to mention the chef was overwhelmed??? Maybe that's why the seasoning was forgotten on my meal?? Nice place for groups, dates, or to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings. We went for a bachelorette and the hostesses were very helpful in playing along with the surprise for our bride-to-be.

    Have had dinner there several times. Good food usually but a bit overpriced. This time a group of 9 went and had the following experience: they did not know what beers they serve - had to change beer orders after a 10 minute wait; forgot to order one entree - unforgivable, one entree had a clothespin lying underneath the meat; the chicken was way overcooked and tough, our entrees were brought out one at at time and sporadically over a 10 to 30 minute period. One of our elderly guests was so distraught she could not eat at all. I have never had such a terrible experience at what is supposed to be a top of the line restaurant. This dinner ruined the entire evening for our group, including 3 visitors from Germany.

    O&B Blue Mountain is our go-to restaurant for group birthday celebrations: accommodating service and quality food. This time though the food was inordinately salty -- the cup of gaspacho was laden with salt as was the gianardinera pizza. This O&B is always loud, but on this occasion the noise from the hallway was overpowering. The hotel should consider enclosing the wall to the hall in place of the wooden slats.

    We came to Blue Mountain as part of our special week away. While the resort gave us an unsavory taste in our mouths, thankfully O&B delivered. Food was fresh and served in a timely fashion. Everything we consumed exceeded expectations. We highly recommend coming here for a special dinner such as anniversary or even as a part of your special day. Wait staff will accommodate you accordingly. Our only complaint is with the reception. Midweek may be a slow time, but someone to greet guests at a classy establishment is a necessity. To be cheeky we called the restaurant while in line. No answer until the 3rd call. Seeming busier than actual fact isn't good practice. This is our only gripe however - everything else was top tier.

    Showed up at 6:10pm for a 6:15 reservation. Was told they were running on time, so please have a seat and wait. When i enquired about this i was then told on their system it was only 6 pm, and they could not fix it, so we wouldn't be seated for 15 minutes. We wandered down the hallway, where you can see into the restaurant and saw it was almost empty. Went back to the front and pointed this out, so the grudgingly seated us at the table we reserved at the time we reserved. Good luck with repeat customers when you treat them like this. Fix the time on your system and smarten up!
