I love the view and the location
I love the view and the location and the place has so much to offer. Sadly the food was very poor. We are going out to different restaurants every week and I would have loved the food to be good as I would love to say lets go back there, but we had a pizza and the topping was taste less and the rest was very "doughy" I had a salad and that was also not very good...
The blueberry cheesecake was outstanding and the service was fantastic, but the food was really a HUGE let down..
The restaurant has everything a restaurant needs to make a huge success, sadly it is missing the most important element....great food :-(

25th Anniversary celebration!
We had a window table with a fabulous view of Lake Ramsey. Our server was friendly and helpful. All of the dishes we had were very good. The root vegetable salad and the fresh fruit salad were tasty. Although this time we had lunch, we have gone for dinner in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu has a good variety and we love the location.

Good food but a bit of a wait.
Overall the meal was lovely. Food definitely good quality with lots of choice. We were a bigger group-9 and it was okay. Seemed to forget that we had kids with us and had to ask for the kids menu and crayons. Left alone mostly. Server could have been more attentive. Food was worth the wait.

Great, as always!
We have frequented this restaurant on various occasions through the years, both at their past and present location.
The servers truly love being there and this reflects in their work and level of service they provide. The drinks vary and there's a little gem for anyone and everyone. (a friend also highlighted the fact that this is the cheapest place in town for a beer on tap - I think it was Steam Whistle, but I could be wrong as I don't drink beer.)
Despite the various positive aspects of this restaurant, I was indeed disappointed when my entrée wasn't available - on a Thursday night!! I selected another item which was also unavailable. I decided on the daily special and ended up really enjoying it!

Fantastic view, tough to find
This resto is on the campus of Science North, across from the hospital. This is not well publicized on the web page, nor well marked on the street signage at the entrance to the science centre. The menu seems to change often. The ingredients tasted fresh, though not strictly local (pineapple garnish on a number of things, not just dessert either). I had a bison burger which was not too lean/dry. Lobster and crab bisque was nice, though my wife's pumpkin soup had more flavour. The view of the surrounding lake and park lands is outstanding. Would go again if I were in Sudbury

While the food was a bit slow
While the food was a bit slow arriving, the waiter was excellent-friendly, helpful, experienced. The servings were large, and while not always as advertised (black bean soup did not appear to have any black beans in it) attractively presented and flavourful. My cheesecake dessert however was tired!.

Curious Thyme is a Good Time!
Food is outstanding! Very unique items such as elk, and venison on the menu. Head chef always willing to accommodate special considerations for dietary or allergens. Service is discrete and personable. We've been there for two of our latest special family occasions (65th birthday and 45th wedding anniversary) and have found the service impeccable! Will certainly be returning to benefit from their loyalty program and great food and atmosphere. Our thanks to the chef for offering a variety of foods suitable to our dietary constraints. Haven't eaten anything that we haven't LOVED. Worth checking out! We were there for the sunset over Lake Ramsey and what a view from our seats!!! We will be there for high tea soon as well. :)

Great Thyme by the water.
Had visitors from Southern Ontario come to visit, what a better way to show them a little of what Northern Ontario has to offer. Fine dining overlooking Lake Ramsey, doesn't get better than that.

No issues with Curious Tymes! We loved it. From the service, to the food, to the setting....nothing we found in the city gives you the same feeling. We even compared it to The Rainbow Room by Massimo Cappra in Niagara Falls....and the 2 are one in the same. If you're looking for fine dining within Sudbury, don't once pass this restaurant up!!

Another romantic anniversary
We have chosen to celebrate our anniversary with Curious Thymes every year as they catered our wedding in the Vale Cavern. We really appreciate that Jen was able to provide the sparkling wine we requested as it has sentimental value to both of us. Our server was Erica and she was very attentive and her bubbly personality added a little extra magic to our night. Thank you Erica for making usfeel like royalty!!! My husband would like me to add that last year we had the chicken marsala (as this is what was served at our wedding) and it was very disappointing. This time it was heavenly!!!! Our compliments to the chef :)

A group of 10 of us went in for the Summerlicious menu. We enjoyed it very much. Great food. Great value. Great atmosphere.

Beautiful place, beautiful food
Curious Thyme's By The Water is definitely an experience meant for savouring! The view of Ramsey Lake was breath-taking, and the food was so delicious. I had the blackened catfish, while my boyfriend was feeling adventurous and went for the kangaroo steak; both were excellent. My only regret is not sticking around for dessert and trying one of their many herbal teas. Oh well, next time!

What a wonderful place! The service was absolutely perfect. Even the chef came to our table to ask if we enjoyed the food. It was wonderful. The food was excellent. The scenery and the ambience was very romantic which was exactly what we were looking for.

My meal was excellent-lasagna and apple salad, my husband had the roasted red pepper soup and shrimp and was not as pleased. Wish there were more pasta or chicken dishes, not a lot of choices with shrimp.

The menu never disappoints - delicious every time!!

From the very get go the service was terrific and the night was really incredible! Food was delicious, appetizer hit the spot and main course was a whole new level as I had the Elk Steak served on a Himalayan Salt platter. Overall very impressed with the service and very high compliments to the chef. A night to remember for sure.

Delicious First "Thyme"
My boyfriend & I went Nov. 5th just after the new menu launch. Our waitress was very friendly, and helpful when I was stuck deciding between two dishes. (Her suggestion was the wellington duck.) However, I did not get the seasonal vegetables the menu said came with my meal. (To me, a little mixed greens under the meal doesn't count, though still tasty.) Overall though, the food, atmosphere and staff were great and we enjoyed ourselves. The chef even made rounds to ask how everyone's meals were, which I thought was a nice touch. I only wish it wouldn't have been dark out already so we could have enjoyed the view, but I'd definitely go back.

Speaking for myself and not for my party of 4, I found my meal very good and filling. The waitress' suggestion on beer was good as well even though I was disappointed I could not get my favourite Canadian.
