    Wildlly expensive. Nice presentation and tasty but four times more cost than it should have been. 1tsp trout pate and two crackers is not worth $10.

  • As this was an Oliver & Bonacini
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/16/2012
    As this was an Oliver & Bonacini restaurant we went into it with high expectations that were unfortunately not met. It is a sad commentary on a meal when you leave saying that the bread and butter were the best part. The $40 steaks came to the table over-cooked and flavorless. The ribs that were advertised as being so tender they would fall of the bone, were dry. The desserts were ho-hum. Tea water was only warm, which was a shame as the tea looked to be of excellent quality. Staff were very friendly but inexperienced. Maybe service and quality will improve as their operating season continues and kitchen and server staff become more experienced.

    Dining at Windermere was simply lovely. No matter where you sit, you'll enjoy just being there. The gluten free pasta was awesome! Great service and staff.

    The ambiance was great but the food was not up to par with other O&B restaurants that we have visited. In addition, the portions were very small and we left the restaurant hungry.

    Dining room was very noisey. High ceilings with little to absorb the noise. Wait staff worked in teams and offen got things wrong. One drink came but the other person had not ordered a drink (waiting for the wine list). One entre came way ahead of the other one. On the menu- no mention of vegetables with the entre so we ordered side dishes. The meals come and there are vegetables on the plate. We ordered three side dishes and were not advised there would be vegetables with the meal. We got the feeling that things were not organized.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/30/2011
    Our overall experience was unfortunately disappointing. It began when our table was not ready for our 8:00pm reservation so we had to wait 10 minutes, no large inconvenience. However when we were sat at our table we were left unattended for at least 20 minutes. No one even approached ust to take a drink order. We sat there waiting. When we finally ordered, my steak, which was ordered medium, was rare and very bland. I do understand that sometimes these things tend to happen however when you are marketing yourselves as an upscale, fine dining establishment, and charging the prices you charge, there needs to be more attention paid to detail. Overall I would not recommend the restaurant as the food was average, not prepared exceptionally

    Solid, though not spectacular food. Great views, of course. An ok spot in Muskoka, where good restos are few and far between.
