Excellent fried dill pickle and goat cheese dip appetizers. I love the local art work on the wall. Nice atmosphere for a relaxing night out.

Our server Griffin was absolutely fantastic. So friendly and sweet, he really made the experience great for us. Food was perfect, as usual! We did sit outside on the patio since we’re from separate households. No heat lamps, so bundle up! We were prepared for a bit of cold & loved the outdoor ambiance.

Loved it here. Food is great! However, both times I came I didn’t get the latte I was hoping for because the first time the machine was broken and the second time they did have vanilla syrup. It is a “cafe” so I expected more but I still was overall very happy. I went about 2pm and bc it was slow time afterwards they allowed me to stay to do some work. I wasnt rushed out of there.

Food was alright. The goat cheese dip was dope. My biggest concern was the extremely long wait time for our food because of over prioritization for skip the dishes.

Had our anniversary there with our 15 month old daughter and had a great time. Was nice to finally get out to the restaurant atmosphere again. Servers were wonderful.
The red pepper relish with the cornbread was AMAZING. I need to find a recipe for it. Delicious.

I love coming to Miijidaa (probably my tenth time here). My partner and I felt very comfortable with their covid precautions. My partner loved his pizza - I asked for the vegan options but unfortunately several ingredients were out so I was pretty limited in my choice. They were also out of the ingredients to make their feature cocktail. I still enjoyed my pizza but I don't think I would order it again. Nonetheless, I will continue coming back to Miijidaa because of the many other wonderful experiences I have had.

The food and service at Miijidaa is amazing. However, the plant based menu is very confusing and deceiving. Plant based means no animal products but the menu has cheese in many of the dishes. For example, the ash goat dip is not vegan but the salad has vegan goat cheese. I think the menu should be renamed to vegetarian menu and their should be a V on the items that are 100% vegan. We almost ordered dishes that had dairy cheese in them and we are fully plant based and we would have been extremely upset to have accidentally eaten that. There were also quite a few options on the menu that were "out of stock".

We will come back and dine for sure - but we feel a revision in the menu is very important!

I took my daughter out for dinner. We were advised at the start of the 90 minute turnaround. We completely understand that in today’s world. We were early, 5:30. There were two tables already seated and two others available.

This is when the saga started. 1) it took 10-15 minutes until they came to ask us for drinks. 2) then it took 10-15 minutes to bring the drinks. My daughter and I had started to make jokes about whether they were crushing the grapes for the wine.

When the drinks arrived, we wisely ordered our meals.

The halloumi cheese was lovely. The sweet potato, less interesting. The mains arrived quickly. Pizza was good. Salad not as interesting as we would have expected. DON’t waste your money on the tofu. It is simply slabs of tofu on the top of the salad.

Carrying on with the service. There were two servers, one with more experience, although arguably not much, and one un training. They were pleasant enough, and doing as best they could. Interestingly, they gave the table next to us a 20 minute warning. The next thing we hear is that our time us up, and would we like desert to go.

Overall, the experience was not what we were expecting, such that we would not likely return. This said, I think they recognized the inconsistency and did try to make amends. Given the other positive reviews, and the challenging world we live in, we may give them another shot, but they will need to up the game on service.

Loved the service and the setting, we could see that in non-pandemic times the restaurant would have a great ambiance. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing. We visited for the vegan menu and loved Green Goddess vegan mozzarella but to our surprise the pizzas had no base sauce leaving the dish pretty flavourless.

I had a terrific experience at Miijidaa and would 1000% recommend it. The food was incredibly tasty, the service was phenomenal, and the overall ambiance was zen. I further appreciate all of the sustainability efforts Miijidaa has in place as part of The Neighbourhood Working Group. I also loved how expansive their vegan menu was.

I did not give the food a full 5/5 because they were out of their vegan cheeses, and I was really excited to try the vegan halloumi. However, they were very apologetic about this.

And I did not give the value a full 5/5 because we were still a bit hungry after our meal.

This was our anniversary. We felt very safe. Our server was funny, helpful and didn't rush us. I had a winter Cosmo that led to 2 (I was not driving)...it was delicious. Our food was prompt, hot, and very good. Everything is homemade, which we enjoyed very much. The soup was tomato infused with goat cheese - YUM!! This is one of my go to restaurants. IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED IT, YOU NEED TO.
