The environment was very relaxed. It's a high end restaurant but caters to a cottage crowd. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, the restaurant and the surroundings. She was polite, efficient, courteous and friendly. The food was perfect. Delicious!

It was our 30th wedding anniversary get away weekend. The staff were very friendly and looked after our needs.
The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect.
Thanks for making our anniversary a memorable one.

Great job to the Deerhurst Staff.

Had a great meal and had our favourite waitress, Jen who is awesome!! Only complaint is when making the reservation you ask if it is a special occasion, which it was however, the restaurant didn't even know? Why ask? Luckily Jen was on top of it and gave John a special dessert.

Service was not up to the standards that are expected for fine dining. Asked for a couple things brought to the table such as extra tartare sauce, to go with the extra fish we ordered. Never showed up, waitress was non existent for 30 minutes. Food was great.

We had a quick one night stop at the Deerhurst Resort and were very lucky to get into Eclipse as we came in late in the evening. Wow, from appetizer (Tuna Tartare) to our entrees of the Braised Short Ribs (mouth watering), and Proscuitto Wrapped Chicken Supreme (Mmmm) right to the wine choice, we quite possibly had our best meal ever! The ambiance was lovely, our server was awesome, and it was just an overall great experience! Thank you ;)

Our dinner was lovely, the presentation was great. Staff were friendly and accommodating.
My only concern was the lack of attention to proper sanitation in the Eclipse Restaurant The staff wiped off the tables but did not wipe down the arms and backs of the chairs. Luckily I had my own hand sanitizer in my purse to wipe my chair and my husband’s who is a chemotherapy patient

We were dismayed at how 'diner-like' the dining room was. Scruffy tables, with an old fashioned cigarette burn (no kidding), wait staff with low energy (which we understand, given the circumstances) and just average food.
Looking around the room - sad looking decor items with dust, and HVAC vents desperately needing a significant cleaning!!! Windows grungy too.
In the morning, for breakfast service there were dishes set outside on the balcony. We watched as the squirrels investigated the table tops, chairs and whatever crumbs they could find.
All in all, a tired location, despite the realities of Covid-19, in need of a cleaning, menu update and decor and interior rework.
The staff are doing what they can, again given the circumstances, and were pleasant while providing service.

We really enjoyed our dinner, service was good and the food excellent. The only thing that we didn’t like was that we couldn’t get earlier reservation since we do not like eating late and the earliest available time was at 8:30 PM.

Love Deerhurst and generally the Eclipse. But $52 for a piece of steak that was less than excellent was disappointing to say the least. (Can’t help but compare to a far better experience at the Keg, for $35?)

We had lovely service and an excellent meal with good Ontario wine pairings. The relaxing atmosphere was totally marred when a large family group (8 maybe) of young and old adults were led past our table, and those of about a dozen other people, WITHOUT A MASK AMONG THEM. The gap between the group members and our table was less than a meter in some instances. Northern hospitality was not helped by a serious breakdown in enforcing indoor mask rules. For us it was anxiety provoking and disturbing.

The food was very good. We had 4 breakfast meals during our stay and 2 evening dinners.

The breakfast menu consisted of mostly egg dishes, which is problematic for those with egg allergies. I would not recommend the breakfast with accommodation package given the limited breakfast menu. Their berry compote was very good.

The dinners were good. The short ribs were ok but it was as it the meat was cooked seperately first then combined with the sauce. It did not taste like the meat had simmered with the sauce to absorb all the flavours. The trout was very good. The peach and tomato caprese salad was very fresh and tasty. Although the apple and parsnip soup and the prosciutto wrapped Chicken were both very good they were served warm not hot which was less satisfying. The ceasar salad had a different presentation with section of romain lettus instead of the standard chopped romain mix.

The staff were excellent and accommodating; and took all of the covid-19 precautions seriously. The spacing of the tables, the seating of the guests and the cleaning of the space was well done overall. I would go back again.

I would suggest some reasonably priced items on your menu. A good evening out but couldn't afford every evening staying at the Deerhurst.

Excellent meal and dessert. We started with the steamed mussels which were delicious. For the main course our party had the lamb and beef duo, short ribs, sea bass, which were all wonderful. For desert we had cheesecake, fresh donut bits, and strawberry shortcake.

The experience at this restaurant was very poor. The restaurant and the patio were deserted but the staff made a big deal about not sitting us on the patio because we didn't reserve the patio. In these times when people are hardly getting out of the house restaurant staff continue to think that they'll have full capacity. Hilarious.
When making the reservation on the phone with the person at the restaurant they did not mention indoor/outdoor options.
To summarize: bad service, bad attitude. We did not stay.
Some adjustments in mentality may be in order for those working at this restaurant.

Food was delicious, we had the seafood chowder, vegetable dumplings, seafood pasta and the vegetable curry dish. All of which were amazing. Portions were generous. We ate on the patio which was fine but a little cool late August evening, no fault to the restaurant however I would like to suggest some patio lanterns, not only would they provide some heat but add a nice ambience to a basic patio. I would eat here again.

The service was fantastic. I asked for my steak medium and they served it well done accidentally. Not only was it still delicious cause I ate it anyways no complaints, but the entire plate was good and filling and so too were all our other meals. The waitress noticed My steak was overcook and took the item off our bill. That is the best service anyone can ask for!!!! Highly recommend this place !!!

For such a fancy resort, the breakfast menu was surprisingly limited to the typical basics, average quality with the cheapest home fries possible and way over priced. No better than a basic breakfast diner but with less menu choices and twice the price. At least the service was good. Expected much better offering from Deerhurst.
