We made reservations for lunch as we wanted to show our parents our wedding venue. Our server Kate was absolutely amazing! She was friendly, polite, attentive and you could really tell she enjoys her job. She was able to give us detailed descriptions of the menu and even a brief history lesson on the Mill. Needless to say our parents were blown away by the service and were very impressed with our decision. We cannot wait to tie the knot their next year. Highly recommend if you enjoy quality service with a smile.

Also, the view is beautiful!

The quality of the food does not match the ambience (the latter being excellent). I have no objection to paying for a $19 glass of wine, but the wine was not at all exceptional (nor was their wine list). The same goes for a $25 plus entree - no qualms about the cost but it was just not as good as what I'd had before at other high-end restaurants with the same entree price range (ie, Revival House in Stratford). The wine list and menu needs a make-over and could certainly have more vegetarian options.

Cambridge is a beautiful scenic town and the Mill an impressive dining experience...Both are easily accessible from Hamilton, Toronto, Kitchener. The Mill is conveniently located close to theater, boutiques and other interesting sites. It is my favorite place and restaurant to take guests from out of town, province or country.
Besides being atmospheric The Mill is consistent in delivering a diverse menu of high quality cuisine. Their salads are remarkable The best I have had in any restaurant. The portions are just right and each item on the menu richly satisfying . The service is top notch. It is always comfortable and impeccable.

Service was fantastic and we were seated in a great location for a date. A tea we ordered was forgotten, but it was a very minor detail and didn't impact our experience at all.

The deck room was uncomfortably warm and a bug fell into my glass of wine. The waiter took my 3/4 full glass of wine and never returned with anything. Bad experience overall.

Due to the hot weather on the day I went, the restaurant should've turned the AC higher as it was really uncomfortable to eat while sweating the whole time. The food quality has also declined (ie. crab legs are way smaller now, no vodka for the oysters, etc) since last year. I do love coming to Cambridge Mill once a year on Father's Day as my dad loves eating there and is worth the 1.5 hr drive each way.. but even he said this year was a let down with the heat and the food quality. Hopefully next year will be better!

We were unexpectedly seated upstairs, the staff said the food selection was the same for brunch, but it was minimal compared to the downstairs options. It took 30+ minutes to receive a chocolate milk, and decaf coffee. We did not receive the highchair we had asked for when making the reservation, and confirming the reservation over the phone, and asked for at the point we got to the table - it arrived midway through our meal. It also took about 20 minutes to get our bill. I would not recommend returning on a high traffic day (such as Fathers Day), however we will likely return to the mill on a regular Sunday.

The food and environment was lovely. We did request a window table a couple of months in advance and were seated away from there so we weren't too thrilled with that, however the rest of the experience was great. The champagne was a nice touch since we were celebrating our anniversary.

There was construction going on around the front of the restaurant, so it was a little confusing to get in, but the restaurant was beautiful. We had a nice table with a view of the Grand River. Service was excellent - very professional and attentive. The bathroom was beautiful as well, and clean. I had the grilled chicken and mushroom risotto. The chicken was a bit underdone, but I got a new dish and it was fine. The risotto was delicious. Others in my party had the ploughman's platter and the mac and cheese. All were great.

Extra efforts were made to compensate for the outdoor construction at the front door of the restaurant.
Servers were extremely friendly and attentive.
Offering a "birthday dessert" for my friend was greatly appreciated.
We enjoyed our luncheon experience. The view, food and service were impeccable.

We had visited this restaurant previously for Sunday brunch with friends and were very impressed. This time we had lunch with 2 australian friends before delivering them to Pearson international for their homeward journey. Had the best view being entertained by a beautiful blue heron, ducks, ducklings, blackbirds and more. Food was very nice. Priced reasonably. Wait staff good value. Only complaint was a screaming toddler. Not something the restaurant staff have any control over. Thanks for providing us with a very pleasant farewell lunch.

Our dinner reservation was set for 7:00pm. We arrived shortly after 7:10 and were told that they were getting our table ready and to have a drink in the bar. It was only about a 5 minute wait at the very most to be seated.

My girlfriend and I ordered 2 apps to share. It turned out we really only needed the one and even then we boxed up the flatbread to go. The portions of the Calamari and the Flatbread were much more than what we both expected.

My girlfriend ordered the Seafood linguine and I had a 10oz strip. The pasta was good however we both thought there was too much oil at the bottom of the bowl. The take out container was extremely soggy by the time we got home. The portion for the pasta was quite large too.

My steak was cooked perfectly and the asparagus were cooked just the way I like them. However, I wasn't impressed with the side plate for my mashed potatoes. I feel like everything should be on one plate instead of having a "family" style mashed potato, it felt like it was an additional side to the meal.

I feel like the prices of the Cambridge Mill dinner menu reflect more of a quantity over quality, I would feel much more obliged to pay a little less to receive a little less. I feel like the portions are way too large for something that reflects a more upscale restaurant.

It was my first time dining at the Mill, I feel like I would come back for Brunch or maybe a bar reservation however a dinner reservation there would not be suitable if I feel like I would be taking home half of our meal in boxes.

It was my daughter's 19th birthday and she loves going to the Mill as much as I do. I wanted to take her somewhere memorable for this birthday to have a special cocktail and a nice meal. The food was delicious, as usual and we had a fun evening with great service from our waiter and a wonderful view of the water falls. You can't beat the Monday night steak and wine deal!

We have been going here since the week it opened many years ago for Sunday Brunch. We have always been a great supporter as we love the ambience however the value is starting to drop. Used to be Sushi, no longer and the manager mentioned something about difficulties with food safety? Don’t get it. Reduction in value.

The early bird brunch time window continues to shrink and is now only 9:30 am which is ten dollars less (43/person) as there is no alcohol until 11 am (law).

Last time we came a couple of months ago the early bird was 9:30 and 9:45. Now with the 9:45 at 53/person there is no alcohol until 11. Reducing value to customers.

Today we noticed the flambé is gone for the crepes so it just seems to get skinnier every time yet the price rises consistently.

The manager blamed it on the inexperienced youngster manning the station however I don’t believe it and either their management needs to do a quality check on each station at the beginning or it is another reduction in value. We will see next time.

Still a beautiful place with top service by long term employees however no so often any more.

Went for Sunday brunch with a friend - absolutely delicious! Great variety of food, everything was well prepared and visually appealing. Excellent service as well. Clearly great care is put into making each person's experience special. Went at the beginning of the first sitting so it was quite quiet and peaceful. Got a bit busier later on but still wasn't problematic at all. Beautiful view over the river as well.

Sent one steak back three times and they couldn’t get it right. They were very gracious about the kitchens challenges and removed it from the bill BUT we were all done and my wife ate alone. Not the first time this has happen Ed there. I just won’t risk special occasions at this restaurant again. Server was fantastic but visibly frustrated with the kitchen performance.

Everything about our dinner Sunday evening was top-notch! Eva was friendly and welcoming, and her timing was impeccable - from the first drink to dessert she provided everything we needed at exactly the right time. Checking that our steak was to our liking (it was the perfect temp) and chatting about the sunset, as well as providing us with a glass of champagne for our celebration, were extra touches that made us definitely want to return. The covered patio had a lovely breeze on a warm evening, and food was superb, especially the mussels. We highly recommend the Cambridge Mill for a special evening.
