Server was great and food delicious
Food and service was exceptional as always. We have never had a bad experience or a bad dish.
Nice patio, incredible staff and the food is AMAZING
fabulous patio out the back, and the staff are doing an amazing job with the re-opening. oh, and the veggie burger patty is made in-house and is awesome!
Amazing food and super friendly service. One of our favorite spots, definitely recommend!
So good to be back! Always love the food & ambiance at Miijidaa.
If you want to know how to nail a reopening go to Miijidaa's. Service amazing, drinks fantastic, food to die for. We had four cocktails, two scotch eggs, the goat cheese dip, the roast duck and the beef cheeks. The scotch eggs are our go to staple appetizer, absolutely amazing as always. The egg was crispy and still runny, salad perfectly dressed and the cranberries tie it all together. We tried the goat cheese dip and were not disappointed. New to our dinner, but delicious, only problem is there wasn't more to keep eating! Our mains were the best things we have eaten in over a year and it pained us to have to eat breakfast the next day, knowing nothing would taste as good. The duck was perfectly crispy but tender to pull away from the bone. The wild rice was the perfect side, paired with wilted spinach and charred carrots. A walnut sauce pulled it all together. My husband cannot get over how much he loved it. The beef cheek was tender enough to only need a fork, no knife required! Paired with buttery mashed potatoes, charred carrots and shallots, wilted spinach, a beef jus and puffed wild rice I struggled to finish my plate but couldn't leave anything behind. We had two alcoholic and two non alcoholic cocktails. All four were unique and masterfully crafted. We enjoyed their creations. Our server and the rest of the staff were amazing and attentive. Their patio setup allowed for comfort and great ambiance, the perfect opening date night. Overall, I would 100% recommend. If I would give them 10 stars out of 5 I would. We will definitely be back.
Food was great, they even have vegan options which were delicious! Their pizza is a must, will be back
Great ambiance! Would definitely recommend, especially the patio!
The staff is really nice and super helpful, the patio has a nice atmosphere and didn’t feel too full, I got the venison burger and it was a bit too well done for my taste but it was still really good. The portions were great for the price of the food, overall a really great place that I’d recommend to anyone and I’ll definitely be back again.
We had a wonderful lunch on the quiet back patio under a canopy. Service was great, friendly and attentive but not intrusive. So good to be back eating out.
Delicious food, amazing value!
By far the best restaurant in Guelph- food, service, and ambience-wise
The food was so tasty, fresh and healthy. The server was so helpful and passionate about the bistro
Great staff. Great food and a lovely ambiance. We hope to return soon!!
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.
Staff was attentive, knowledgeable about wine and friendly. Great food.
Friendly and attentive staff. Great food and drinks. Had a lovely dinner overall.
Miijidaa is always excellent. We've never had a bad meal and will always come back. Love their support to the local community!
I often dine at Miijjidaa. Haven't in the last year as often of course
Very safe and same great food and service!
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.
Great service with a pleasant terrace
My family of 3 had Sunday lunch at Miijidaa this past weekend. The service was outstanding as was the food....as always. This is one of our favourite Guelph restaurants.
The food flavours were not the best. Bland.
Very relaxed an enjoyable despite the necessary precautions.
I've eaten here several times and always have a great experience. The patio is really nice in the summer too.
Lovely. Cozy. Great interesting healthy menu. I right away said that I would be back there again. The food is soo fresh. The gf bun was awesome. Could not even tell it was gf.
COVID times....friendly staff, great food, good wine. Great service too.
Amazing service, very friendly. Even offered to take our photo when we mentioned it was a birthday! We will be back.
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.
Our server was so helpful and her recommendations were bang on!
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!
Food is great, very friendly and fast service :).
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.
It's a nice atmosphere with good food and friendly staff.
Miijidaa offers a safe space to enjoy a meal - such a treat to have someone cook for me again - totally enjoyed the food the experience.
