Diner Reviews
  • "We hadn't been to the Moose Factory in several years as our last visit was somewhat disappointing. This time we had a lovely meal including a perfect ceasar salad made table side. The service was excellent and the room quiet enough to carry on a conversation in normal tones."

  • "my kid like to go buffet because she like the dessert table but find out they don't have it anymore but Sunday bunch, disappointed"

  • "Looking for a place to have a great meal with the family without going to the usual chain restaurants. Seated right away. Very helpful ( one person is in a wheelchair - created no difficulties). Great service. Managed all changes to menu as requested. Great food. You get what you pay for however - dinner for four with drinks over 200 dollars."

  • "Booking through open table made this restaurant experience even better as it was extremely simply and straight forward. Arrived at Moose Factory, gave my name and was immediately escorted to our table. No problems, no hassles. Service and food was outstanding."

  • "We spent our one year anniversary here last week. Loved the food and the atmosphere. It was quiet and romantic. Our service was excellent and we would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves a good steak."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The appetizers and salad were exceptional. The Calamari could have been deep fried a little more. The steak and Lobster meals were mixed. The Lobster was some of the best we have had in quite some time and it actually saved the meal, because steaks were cold when they arrived. Management was very receptive to the problem and offered to redo them, but we really did not want to wait the time required. They did give us a 10% discount off of the bill when we came to pay. Mistakes will be made, but they did try to rectify them. We would give them another chance."

  • "Myself and 8 girlfriends had super at the Moose Factory on June 14th for a stagette. We really appreciated being seated in a private-ish area and the service, food, and drinks were fabulous!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The service was outstanding. I didn't get the waiter's name, but he was courteous, prompt, patient (my group of 4 ladies sat for hours), pleasant, and made sure we lacked for nothing. The reception staff were equally pleasant. We all ordered salads, which came with citrus wedges, but no dressing. We did ask for a cruet of olive oil to combine with our sqeezed lemon or lime juice. The greens were quite dry without something on them. The others were content with theirs, but my serving of avocado was dark gray. I don't care for avocado anyway, but it was a bit off-turning. We had planned on ordering the buffet, but found out that it leaned heavily towards meat dishes (steak house - one of us is vegetarian), so we opted for the salads instead."

  • "We really enjoyed having dinner at the Moose Factory to celebrate a University Graduation. Our servers were excellent and the food was the same. We were given our own part of the restaurant which made our celebration even more special."

  • "Fantastic service, Simon was great and would absolutely reserve in his section again!"

  • "We have had Parker as our waitron for our last couple visits, both of which were quite large groups, and the service is always amazing. He is attentive and funny and always friendly and goes out f his way to ensure you have the best visit possible. The food is even better. We typically go for the buffet which is always delicious but when you're ordering off the menu, get the asparagus is hollondaise. Sounds simple but it is to die for. My family loves the Moose Factory and we will be lifelong customers. "

  • "We had a party of 9 for Mother's Day and the restaurant fit all of us comfortably. The food was good and there was a great selection. My favorite part was the deserts. There was a variety of cakes, squires, cookies, fruits and to top it off a chocolate fountain. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Not impressed. Good selection but carvery meats cold, hot food had sat out too long. Price was reasonable for a mothers day brunch. Were offered orange juice or mimosa but not told there was a charge for mimosa."

  • "We went for Sunday Brunch at noon on Mother's Day. It was crazy busy. Between customers shoving their way through to the buffet to far too many staff trying to wedge into the narrow area to replenish plates and food. I always thought the narrow food station was cramped but it was claustrophobic on Sunday! The food was not very hot, again likely due to constant turnover. The serving staff was attentive and polite."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This year we decided to venture out for Mother's Day and were very pleased with Tom Goodchild buffet. There were lots if choices, the quality was good and our waiter was fantastic! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The area where we were seated was extremely noisy - even though our group was all adults we were placed with three other tables with screaming babies and young children - hardly a pleasant dining experience. I realize the restaurant is not responsible for the behaviour of little ones, but perhaps the online reservation booking menu should include ages of the party - will you be dining with young children - and some attempt to group similar parties together could be made. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We were a party of 12 and it was my daughters high school graduation otherwise I would have been complaining about the steaks that were done far past what was ordered in respect to done-ness. The lobster was stringy. My ribs were dry as heck!! Our server janelle was fabulous and while I'd happily deal with her again I won't be back. Spending almost 700.00 on sub par food is not acceptable"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Everything was great, but got a drink and dessert order incorrect. The dessert was taken off the bill."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Reserved a table for six and we were seated in a section with two other tables - one with a group of very loud people which I am sure is what upset the second table where the baby cried through the entire meal. It should be noted there were numerous vacant tables in other sections when we came and when we left so we could have been moved. Flagged a manager down who had walked by our table numerous times after we has been seated for 10 minutes and nobody had acknowledged us. The manager said the server was busy with the noisy table and would be over ASAP - he did not offer to take our drink order or move us. When waiter came his service was excellent. Poor customer service by manager means for the money will choose Keg next time!"

  • "My friends and I have been here before and we will definitely be back again."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "Food had lots of variety. Prime rib was cold. We were a large group and had trouble with splitting up the bill. No one was around when we were ready to go or did they ask us if we wanted it split up. The waiter was helpful in the end but it took a long time. "

  • "Table side caesar salad - too dry - not enough dressing - dressing too spicy and flavour not good. Had much better before. CAB ribeye did not have the same flavour as before. Fillet mignon undercooked - asked for medium - served too bloody. Also, fillet had fatty pieces which definitely shouldn't be at all! Hopefully this restaurant can become more consistent and to improve upon the flavour and quality of the food to be at par with the price!! At this rate, the side dishes should be included with the price of the entree."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "I was not impressed with the Buffet. My daughter hardly ate. The waiter was nice just that I was not happy when he kept coming to our table asking us if we were finished. He grabbed my daughter's meal, she was not even finished and I was not impressed at all. She said to me that he took her plate, she was not finished and did not bother getting anymore food. I do not think I will go back to Tom Goodchild Moose Factory again. I did not have a good evening there. I just did not like the interruption always. Plus the table was not completely set up. I was missing a hand towel, a knife and spoon for my cafe latte. I do not mean to complain, but for the money's worth I was not happy or impressed at all with the food nor service. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The food was delicious without a doubt but with more than one plate at our table was not prepared per our request. A well done filet mignon was medium well, my rare filet was medium and a prime rib cut was served instead of a rib eye steak."

  • "I would highly recommend this place to everyone. Staff was awesome, always there for anything you needed, phenomenal food. Very much enjoyed our experience there."

  • "I mentioned that the reservation was for a 20th anniversary and this was clearly communicated to the wait staff. We were greeted promptly and seated at a quiet table away from other diners (restaurant was quiet anyway). We were served by a very professional waitress who had all the patience in the world. Unfortunately the food was only so-so. Sinewy beef on the Reuben and rubbery calamari. Not terrible, just not great."

  • "So it turns out if u want to order off the lounge menu and r seated in the restraunt it is a 5 dollar extra fee per person. All I wanted was a beef dip and believe me if we didn't have the baby with us we would have sat in the lounge. Also ridiculous to order a steak and all that comes on your plate is a steak. You pay more for every side you want. On the plus side my taco salad was delish, beef dip delish and cheese plate delish. If your not eating off the lounge menu don't go.... Waste of moo lag folks!"

  • "Usually our experience at the moose factory is amazing and fantastic. I brought a group there on Saturday, most of which had never been there before. Our service was terrible, especially for a large group with a $600 tab. Not sure if the automatic 18% gratuity = I'm getting it anyway so I don't need to raise the bar with my level of service? But our service was less then what I experienced at Earls earlier that day! Usually the service at the MF Is fantastic. As it should be for a pricier establishment. Additionally, we had made a reservation in advance and out table was not ready when we arrived. We had to wait 15 minutes beyond our reservation time to be seated."
