We three enjoyed our meals and the server was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgable.
I bought gift certificates to share for Christmas, so obviously we'll be back!

The tables were all really close together. It felt like we were dining with two other patrons.
It was quite loud (the music) which made it difficult to hear conversations across the table.
Made a reservation and still had to wait 10-15 minutes.
Service was fine.
The food came out so quickly! Great food, great drinks!

Extremely noisy...couldn't hear any music. Barely heard my date or the wait staff. We wee there at 630pm ..height of dinner service. The food was less than impressive-felt like it was the end of the night. Dregs. French fries lousy quality...lots of dry burned bits +++and tourtiere over cooked ..dry. .tasteless. No meal specials..just
The soup. No beef burger options. Martini tiny. Dessert good.

This was our 2nd visit.....first time was almost a year ago in December. We had the exact same table and the same terrific server Simon. Food was excellent and service superb. The menu is seasonally creative, as are the cocktails. We asked for a quiet table and were not disappointed.

This was our first visit to Miijida. This is a cosy restaurant in downtown Guelph. The service was good and they had some unique menu items. The Beef Cheeks were very tender and tasty. The goat cheese dip was a hit. First time I had tried Elk Scotch Egg...I liked it. They had smoked Ceasars on special and they were great. All in all...a good experience.

Would have loved to see more Vegan options i.e. twists on the menu rather than putting cheese in for protein. A Vegan pizza would be great. It doesn't have to have faux cheese, just other roasted ingredients and spices. That said, I plan to visit again and would enjoy the same meal repeatedly. The ragout was amazing!

My husband and I have made Miijidaas our go to local restaurant. The service is always excellent, Staff recognize us and welcome us back. All staff are educated and 100 percent knowledgeable on all items on their menu( how it's made, etc.) We have never been disappointed with our meals. Miijidaas buy local when they can and support our Community in many ways-- an important fact for us.
We highly recommend Miijidaas for any occasion-- or just a night out
Cheers

Our go to place for birthdays and for just because. The menu is varied, with something for everyone, the Scotch Egg app is to die for but it isn't the only one. The Piri Piri cauliflower is so tastey. The wait for apps was a little longer than normal, but were comped which was nice. Our server was attentive but no over baring. Our party of five had the grilled salmon, chicken, the vension burger, braised beef cheeks and the tortiere all hit the spot.

My husband and I had a great meal. We had the elk scotch egg and fried smoked pickles to start. The elk scotch egg was ridiculously good. My husband had the duck and I had the Canadian pizza. Both were excellent. We had ice cream (made in-house) for dessert. Our server was great. Very attentive and accommodating. They were great about accommodating my husband's dairy intolerance and were mindful about what he could and couldn't eat on the menu. Also, with a rooftop garden and and in-house smoker how could you go wrong?! I love the care and attention that is made to the values of the restaurant and to the food. We had a lovely evening and would happily return again!
