JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka - Muskoka Chophouse
I found the food over priced. After our dinner we were not offered coffee or dessert and after asking for our cheque several times it finally arrived a half hour later.
We stayed overnight but, since the weather was bad (rain), the restaurant was quieter than expected. We had a great meal and wine. The memorable aspect was the thoughtful and efficient service.
Great service, so knowledgeable on wines. Good steak and huge sides. Just a bit non atmospheric.
Had a wonderful dinner with my Mom and we had delicious 8oz filets and spot prawns with yummy sides. The restaurant wasn’t busy so it was nice and quiet and our server was very attentive and professional.
Brendan was Fantastic as always
Food was good but average, wine good but overpriced
It’s a fiod place to celebrate special occasion. The staff are very nice our server is the best ever very nice guy Not really sure if hes name is Nathan...//thanks
The food was delish...Our server Madi was exceptional....very friendly and very helpful! Would love to always have her as our server....she made our night💕
Amazing service and ambiance.
Great food...great server...little bit over priced
Food is cooked to perfection great wine recommendation service great ambiance perfect
Steak was not good, when you pay $85 for a steak, it should be cooked as ordered. Quality was not there to warrant the high price.
Excellent service. Our waiter, Nivin, was fantastic!
Our food was delicious with great suggestions from the server, top of the line steak!
Other than the actual steak itself, the food was horrible. To be specific, canned crab for crab cakes should not be served with a Mexican salsa of corn niblets and black bean - that’s just not a real thing. The citrus on otherwise beautifully cooked broccolini completely ruined the flavour and overall taste. The carrot salad was all together embarrassing. Not even going to get into it. Okay maybe a little. Carrots were either under or over cooked. Presentation was poor. The dressing on the bottom was clumpy and distasteful for heirloom carrots. Heated up frozen bread doesn’t work because it becomes chewy when you bake it and bring it out.
Thank you for sharing your recent dining experience. It sounds as though your meal was not at the standard we aim to deliver, and for this I do apologize. I have shared your feedback directly with the Culinary team. In regards to your crab cake, only the freshest crab is used from Maryland and a remoulade sauce can always be crafted upon ordering if you should prefer a more traditional option. I do hope you will consider returning again soon so we may wow your taste buds. Kind regards, Lauren M.
Ceasar salad, oysters and porterhouse steak was great. And server we had at Chophouse was excellent!
Johnny, thank you for sharing you wonderful review. I am so glad you enjoyed your recent dining experience at Muskoka Chophouse thanks to the tantalizing sides, Certified Angus Beef and intuitive service. The oysters and porterhouse are always delicious for celebrating a special occasion or a nice evening out, especially when paired with an award winning wine. We look forward to your return! Kind regards, Lauren M.
Waiter Braden made good recommendations on choice of dishes. We mentioned to share salad and their chef pre-optioned it before presenting it to us. We really enjoyed the well-prepared, fresh and delicious meal.
over cooked steaks and under cooked fries. Extremely pricey to have these problems.
Presentation is the best I have seen. Porter house presentation second to none.... Unfortunately wasn't the best porterhouse my wife and have had. Perhaps not just a top notch cut. Cappuccinos were hot ... perfect and the lave cake desert with ground pistachio was to die for!! I am going back!!
Was good. Very high quality food but was no basic options like chichen for my wife
Fabulous service and fabulous food! We will definitely be back!
First of all - there was no one to seat us. I had to get a hotel employee to get someone to seat us. Should have left then.
Service was non-existant for us - our server was spending all his time on one couple. We had to ask to order drinks, then we had to ask to order, and ask for the bill. Dropped a lot of money here - just ridiculous.
We give our experience and 7 out of 10. The atmosphere was good, food tasted great! Sparkling water over-priced. Our server was amazing at the beginning but went downhill. We ordered a bottle of wine and he quickly left. There was of 6 of us. We also wanted other drinks. I believe he was the only server in the place that night.. He seemed rushed. Yet, he ended things with a surprise dessert for our friends birthday. Beginning was good, ending was good.. middle service not as much. Thank you
First time I went I didn't have high expectations for the steak but it was real good, went back this month and the porterhouse was average at best they claim top 3 % of all meat but I've been getting way better cuts at metro, and they overcooked it, fillet piece was well done when I ordered medium rare. Aps were decent, crab cakes and scallops both good. Our table also had a fillet, the bone in rib eye and the strip, fillet looked to be the best of the bunch, others were ok but not what I'd expect from a high end steak house.
I really didn't enjoy our experience at this place. I've been to many steakhouses that charge these types of prices and I'm not sure why but this one was terrible. The steak wasn't hot. It didn't taste great. The sides werent good at all. There was really nothing I liked about it. I wish that wasn't the case .
Always good. Great service.
Brendan was a fantastic waiter and we loved the overal experience.
This was the second year in a row that we came for our anniversary. It was every bit as good as last year, and we were delighted to be seated at the same table and have our favorite waiter, Brandon. We will be back next August 20!!!
Ask for Brendan’s section he is an amazing server. Very knowledgeable about wine and makes a dinner very special.
Great meal at the beautiful JW Marriott property. Had the pleasure of being served by Brendan who took great care of the four of us! Between the four of us we shared two bottles of red (Joseph Phelps - yum), PEI oysters, crab cakes, porterhouse steaks, asparagus, broccolini, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, s’mores and creme brûlée. Was a great date night out for us two couples with kids, staying nearby at Cleveland’s House. We highly recommend and will be back again next summer!
An excellent experience, great smart casual atmosphere with a wonderful & exciting menu offering fine dining along with a amazing wine selection! The crab cake to start was amazing & filet mignon cooked to perfection ! Most importantly ask for Brendan, as he delivers a professional touch to ensure your dining experience is exceptional .
Well done Marriott!
Very noisy, one waiter for the entire restaurant. Food was good.
Words can not describe the horrible experience. Slow beyond belief.
Took over an hour for meal to arrive then it was dropped on floor. Food came back in 5 mind. No chance it was redone that quickly!!!
Outstanding as usual.
This was a repeat visit for my husband and I. Brendan was our server and he was accommodating, knowledgable. professional and attentive. I have food allergies and he made sure that I still had a wonderful dinner. We had the PEI oysters, crab cakes, asparagus and the rib-eye. All were delicous and the steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare. We will be back.
From the moment we were greeted we felt special and well taken care for our anniversary dinner. The food was exceptional! The layout of the tables is a bit awkward and of course it’s dark in the tradition of steakhouses, too bad the lake views weren’t more obvious from inside though the patio outside was gorgeous for a pre and post dinner stroll with a glass of wine. Will definitely return!
We had a spectacular dinner. The wait staff was top drawer and made create recommendations on the meals. We were a party of 6 dining for a special occasion. The bone-in ribeye was well-marbled and unbelievably succulent! The swordfish was cooked to perfection and flakey tender. The coup de gras was the desert medley that our waiter provided gratis. The smores in a jam jar, crème brulle, chocolate lava cake capped off the night with decadent elegance - what a horrible person was our waiter to force us to eat such irresponsible food :-)
If you are looking for a wine to pair with the unbelievably steaks, we had "The Owl & The Dust Devil" Malbec. Just fantastic!
I have always been a fan of J.W. Marriott Resorts and the Chophouse Restaurant continues the tradition of excellence.
If you are booking for a special occasion and you happen to be in Muskoka, this is a must do. 9.5 out of 10 stars.
It was our Anniversary and we were treated very well. Service was attentive and professional. Was surprised and treated to a refreshing Creme Brûlée dessert. The atmosphere was relaxing, quaint and would recommend it. Will be back when in the area again.
