We went as a group of 4 for dinner. Nice place with average to higher prices based on the portion sizes but fairly good food. I had the venison+pork burger which was good but on the smaller size and a little over done. Another had the trout which came as 2 pieces; 1 over done fairly severely and the other was fine. Fairly inconsistent food I found. Service was average to poor with a long wait time in between drinks and had to waive down the waitress for service. It's hard to critique too hard as Covid has had a big effect on staffing/line cooks. I would give it another shot given the circumstances but wasn't anything overly special

Service was extremely slow. Had three different servers within an 1.5 hour diner.

my meal was simpler than what the menu promised: corn didn't look roasted, tomatoes didn't taste smoked, and Miiji bowl generally lacked dressing or any flavour beyond that of the vegetables themselves.

The food is as alright, thought this would give more respect to First Nations, no land acknowledgement, no explanation of why the menu was what is was in respect to having taken a First Nations name. Not sure what respect was paid to First Nations despite taking the name. Was expecting more, especially from a city as culturally sensitive as Guelph.

It was very good. My only issue was the customers, since we have no control over them but it made my ex tony as enjoyable as I expected to me. The people behind me their was one guy who was swearing, and then the table beside us never moved as I had a toddler with a stroller and needed extra room to maneuver between tables and chairs.
Have people really forgotten Adequate when dining out? But otherwise everything was amazing!!

Our luncheon experience was lovely. The server was friendly and knowledgeable, the patio is private and pleasant and the food was delicious. The only issue I have is the ridiculous amount charged for a glass of Ontario wine

This place has great food - every dish is special and unique. Also has great options for dairy free or vegan choices. Great wines and drinks as well. I often choose this place to bring visitors to Guelph or for birthdays and anniversaries!

Mijiidaa is a nice little spot, but if you have celiac disease stay away. I am certain there was gluten in my food, as I was sick almost immediately after the meal and the very next day. I think that restaurants need to treat gluten allergies as serious as any other. Thank you.

The food was good and the service was pleasant. The atmosphere on the patio was strange- no music which would have made it more fun or relaxing. Lots of flies on the patio for some reason. Overall , good food priced a little high (eg $20 for an individual pizza or fish and chips).

They seem to put all of their energy into the patio which may be understandable given the constraints of inside. We had to eat inside because when we made the reservation (days before) there was no patio room left. Unfortunately, they have forgotten about ambiance inside. Rather than seated in the middle bar section or the and back section overlooking the patio we were led to the front where people come in and on a busy street. After insisting we did get a table in the back but, again, no cutlery, nothing but a bare table. The food was fine but this is not an experience I want again. I recommend only if you can gt onto the patio.

Average at best with several menu items out of stock. Server was nice but a simple order taker. Overall underwhelming experience… go early as they interrupted our meal to tell us it was last call foe service before 9 pm.

The patio at Miijidaa is very nice - although the chairs could benefit from some cushions. We each enjoyed our dinners (mixed green salad with chicken and Miiji bowl with chicken - perfect for a hot night!) and then were able to sit and visit for as long as we wanted.
