Food & service are always reliable. Great value. The dishes have broad appeal with a unique twist. A great fast lunch option with professional service and no pretense. A win

I brought a guest and this was my first event with Miijidaa. Have done others at this location (previous owner ??). The event - well the guest speaker was phenominal and I enjoyed his energy and history lesson. Your hostess for the evening was great too at describing the food that we were being offered. The food was excellent - please bring the stew and duck to your menu !!!! The only DOWN SIDE to the whole evening was the 6 or so gentlemen who were on the reserved table - one of them asked the 1st question of the night and then in our opinion - then was totally disrespectful to our guest speaker by having a loud voice with his people at the table. THEY SHOULD NOT have been talking at the same time, and especially loud enough that we could hear them across the room. I know the guest speaker did go to their table, but they did not respect the event by continuing the conversation. When the gal who sat near me spoke up (I was also going to) - the still never stopped. They didn't spoil my evening because the guest speaker did come over to our area and so we were able to listen to him. Finally a big shout out to the SHY kitchen staff - you guys did great - we left an extra $30 in the tip area for you all. My youngest two kids are both trained chefs and I know that they would have enjoyed the meal.

Please consider having a 'rum' night. What happened will not stop me from coming - it was just a person who should have been asked to leave. I will be back for another evening at your café & bistro.

We love Miijidaa, and it didn't disappoint this time. We went for the Date Night deal, but couldn't resist the pizza. We also had to try the seasonal ice cream (parsnip and honey) and it was so worth it. I would return to Miijidaa any day, for any occasion.

We had a wonderful lunch at Miijida! Each of our party of four ordered something different and we all were very pleased with our choices. Delicious food, appealingly presented. Service was cheerful and attentive. The pot lights above our table were bright and shone in our eyes uncomfortably, but our server instantly had them dimmed. Still not perfect due to the direction they were pointed, but much better! We lingered over our meal for three hours and felt welcome and unrushed. We all had a very pleasant dining experience!

Diverse menu with something for everyone. Was perfect for a classy family dinner out. Always unsure where to take both my parents and my two kids under age 4... and still feel like I had a special meal, but this place was perfect. Good pricing, good selection, fun menu options.

I love Miijidaa and eat there often. My guests love it too. My ONLY complaint is the noise level. My hearing is somewhat impaired which makes me struggle to hear conversations in noisy environments. I wish there were a way of reducing the background noise.

Good food. Nice service. Interesting decor. Little deviation allowed from the menu. Also, based on the name Miijidaa, which comes from Ojibway, we expected indigenous-inspired menu choices. Nope.

Service was amazing, but sadly the food was off-base. Not sure whether the potatoes on the pizza were undercooked or a bizarre variety (or both), but the flavour wasn’t harmonious and unfortunately I didn’t enjoy it.

Beyond that, I had a delicious, well-priced cocktail and our server was kind and attentive. The overall atmosphere was great - I just wish I’d enjoyed the food.

I’m sorry but the smoke flavoured deep fried dill pickles over powers the pickle taste. Would not order them again. Veggie burger was good asked for aioli for fries - lacked flavour. Was much better last time we came there. Not sure I’d come back.

Of the three of us, one person had Mac&Cheese with a side salad and she said both were excellent. The other two split both a “Canadian” pizza and a “Dinosaur Kale” salad. We both enjoyed the pizza and I enjoyed the salad, but my friend said later that she tasted something rancid in it, though the greens were quite fresh. That and the noise level were the reasons why I didn’t give the restaurant five stars. Our server was friendly, helpful and didn’t rush us. We’ll probably go back.
