  • "Waitress had to be asked to bring salt & pepper, no jams, ketchup…not friendly at all - distinct contrast to the rest of staff at Rosseau. Did not ask how I wanted my eggs done - they were so undercooked even the whites were runny! Watery hash browns. BIG expense for mediocre (at best) food. Would not recommend - would not go back."

  • "We were celebrating our daughter's birthday, but the dinner at the Cottages was a big disappointment. We waited almost an hour and a half for our food and when it finally arrived, there were issues with 3 out of 4 entrees. The vegetarian curry lentil burger was under-cooked, bland-tasting and fell apart. The chicken schnitzel was soggy. The ravioli was good, but it would have been better if it wasn't Luke-warm. Two of three desserts were disappointing. The restaurant apologized and didn't charge us for appetizers or the burger, but we would not choose to eat there again. "

  • "Weekend out with friends.. this was not a great nor special dinner out. I had the crab cake appetizer (which was a lump of mush) and the thai noodles which were just a heap of cold noodles in an artificial-tasting asian dressing. The wine, company, and Jeff, (our server), were the only good things about this dinner. "

  • "Disappointed that they had run out of Prime Rib by 6:30 on a Saturday night, usually we look forward to this. Service was slow and server flustered. Screaming children added to the ambience. Some food on the Buffett was tired , some excellent. It is a lovely location, hopefully the service improves when summer staff arrives."

  • "We enjoyed cottages during our stay however the reason I gave the service a lower score is because our reservations were not honoured. We arrived at 630 to find out the entire restaurant was reserved for a large group and there was no staff around to ask questions or to let us know what was going on. Eventually an bar staff arrived and we ate at the bar, which was fine as it was just myself and husband, however not what we expected."

  • "great food, very fresh. Nice attention from the server (gave us little treat to celebrate our wedding anniveraty. Very quiet (only 4 couples in the restaurant) probably because of the time of the week and it is January."

  • "Over priced for what you get. Quality of food was so-so. Average rating at best. Noisy if all tables full of families. For JW hotel restaurant expected better food for the price. Service was good."

  • "Upon arrival, we noticed a large spacious environment, where children were free to move around and a large fireplace a few step near the entrance.We were seated on the other side of a semi-divided pillar which had a large group with kids on the other side.It was a bit noisy but soon realized it was more a family oriented restaurant.After we ordered, it did take some time to receive our food.My husband and I were quite hungry, however, we had a lovely basket of warm bread with maple butter. It did calm our hunger while we waited.My husband ordered a pork tenderloin main dish, which he enjoyed thoroughly.I ordered a chicken burger which was very tasty and cooked perfectly.Overall we enjoyed the food but would suggest to have more wait staff."

  • "Food quality and execution is mediocre. Typical complacency from a resort without comparable competition in the immediate area. Not worth the money but it is the only game in town."

  • "We had a good lunch at Cottages restaurant. It wasn't extraordinary, just good. The outside dining area is lovely, but watch out for seagull footprints on your side dishes and cutlery. We were entertained by one gull stepping all over a preset table. We told the staff, and the girl laughed like we were kindly idiots and left. Finally we got the manager to take action."

  • "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Rosseau JW Marriott. DInner was wonderful and the Canada Day fireworks that followed were the perfect finish to a great date night. The Rosseau JW Marriott is a beautiful place and the staff went above and beyond to make our evening perfect."

  • "The wait staff was excellent - it is a multi purpose spot both great for families and the location can be romantic if you aren't sitting next to a big group. Our only critisim. The food selection was limited. No pasta and only one dish of chicken."

  • "We went to Cottages for dinner and then for breakfast the next morning. The dinner experience was pretty good but breakfast left much to be desired. We were there for an hour, after an hour line up to get in, it was indeed busy. The service was not great - no one came by to ask if we wanted a coffee top up, we had to stop someone to ask for it and then no one appeared with any coffee."

  • "Enjoyed our stay at the Marriott Lake Rousseau. Cottages Restaurant on sight serves some tasty food, too bad they ran out of prime rib at 8:30pm. Was looking forward to it but the pork chop I had was still very nice. The combo of raisins, arugula and blueberry with the chop was a different take for the chop."

  • "We went for a "50th." birthday dinner. When we mentioned this to the waitress, she brought us a complimentary birthday plate full of goodies. It was a terrific evening. Waitress was extremely attentive to our needs and food was delicious. They make a great Bloody Caesar drink. Highly recommend Cottages. We are local and it is nice to have here in Muskoka."

  • "Was impressed with the ease of making a reservation via OpenTable. Was not overly thrilled with the level of service (I expected something more elegant, and more upselling involved). We waited nearly 45 mins after eating our appetizers for our main meal, and my steak was overcooked. Our server never once asked us how our meal was. We also could have used a refill on our bread basket, but it was never offered. Overall, I would eat there gain, as the food was tasty (and we were staying the night at the inn, so preferred to stay on the property for a meal), however, I would consider the other restaurant on the premised for dinner instead. I am sure the views are stunning when it's not pitch black outside too!"

  • "We really enjoyed our meals at Cottages. There was a minor mistake with an undercooked steak but they corrected the error right away, and gave us a discount to apologize. The service was extremely friendly and made sure we satisfied at all times. In addition the ambiance was nice and seasonal which added to our enjoyable visit."

The waitress must have been either inexperienced or just not interested in being there. Service was horrible and completely inattentive."

  • "The service was not up to Marriott standards let alone a JW. A definite lack of training. The waitress did not know what the vegetables of the day were. She thought that a filet of salmon was shredded! Our wine did not arrive until after the main course was on our table. After I presented my credit card, it was a good 15 minutes before the waitress returned for my signature."
