Old Mill's dining room is dependable. When there are music performances they seem to staff up to meet the demands of bigger crowds.

The food quality decline these two years. Don't expect to encounter this in Old mills. Some hot food was cold, meat was dry, soup was cold and we almost trip a few times on the food that was on the floor.

This year we noticed they have changed to more Asian fusion. And replaced classic Italian salad with Asian salad and classic soup with Thai soup! We miss the classic European dishes that we always came for. We don't expect to eat many Asian dishes instead like every other restaurant serves. We look forward to come back for nice classic dishes. They have lost their touch. Whatever dishes left that hasn't replace has quality issue. They still have their signature meat section but the old mills beef strew was so tough. The fry rice was dry and hard too.

The servers and manager always provided excellent services. This place is a classic, I hope they reconsider bringing back their classic dishes. We been going there for 10 years and quite disappointed these two years. We might consider other options.

TL;dr make sure you request a table in the main dining area when you book, especially during busy holiday season, or you could be relegated to a back room that is cold and understaffed.

A huge selection of food beautifully presented. Wasn't keen on the tomato mashed potatoes - did not go well with gravy, and our party of 4 agreed on that. But everything else was lovely and abundant.

Beautiful ambiance. The food was very good, however, the selection was limited. There should be a much greater variety for the price. Paying for parking is also not acceptable.

The Terrace was a nice spot for an office luncheon. Comfortable seating. The fellows in our group thoroughly enjoyed the food. There were no complaints from my colleagues.
I was disappointed that we were not offered coffee or tea towards the end of our meal.

I have been going to the Old Mill Sunday brunch for at least 30 years. At one time it was considered somewhat grand and going to the brunch considered special. Over the past few years we have noticed that the place is in need of a major facelift ...it is losing its elegant appeal. In addition, the quality of food served is also declining. At one time I couldn't keep myself away from the food bar because of the variety of servings...now what is served is pretty basic..NO WOW features. Basic..basic. We were a group of 5 and that was the consensus of all of us. This will be the last time for the Old Mill brunch.

We were seated and never offered a drink/wine list. Only coffee and water.
Our reservations for 1pm most of the dishes were not relished quickly or at all. By the time we got to the dessert portion there was nothing. When I look value cost/service/food/ambiance not worth the money. Do not recommend and not interested in returning.

Dependable and affordable with fine service. On jazz concert nights (Mondays) apparently Old Mill shrinks the menu to handle a crowd dining at the same time. A little more variety on the menu would be appreciated on those nights.

we attended the JazzFM event with Kevin Clark and we had an amazing time. the two of us had dinner reservations prior to the performance and we received a truly outstanding attention from a waiter Allan who made our dining experience a truly great one. the food was good but not really hot enough, which is understandable with the volume of people attending. All in all it was a very good night for us.

Our family went to this restaurant for the Thanksgiving buffet. The most notable thing about our experience was the chaos at the restaurant. We had reservations for 7:30 and dutifully arrived at 7:25 only to find a very long line into the restaurant. We waited more than 45 minutes before we were seated. All of the people in the line had reservations. We all waited. It seems as tho they overbooked. The ambience in the restaurant was one of an organization that is overwhelmed.

The food was good for buffet food. There was a good assortment and everything was prepared satifactorily.

The Old Mill itself, aside from the restaurant is quite nice looking. It seems like it would be a good place to begin a hike.

Unfortunately there were just too many people there at the same time so the line up for food was very long. People let there children go to the chocolate fountain by themselves so chocolate is drizzled everywhere. The food ran out so you have to wait for them to bring more. Overall would never go back for thanksgiving.

This was a great spot for a Sunday brunch. They make your special occasions really special with a personalized dessert for the occasion you are celebrating. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The food was delicious and there was a huge variety. It probably isn't a great place for people with mobility issues as the buffet tables are quite close together. Overall it is a really nice spot.

Since we got married at your venue my husband and I decided to celebrate our 10th year wedding anniversary there with our 2 children, so we brought our special glasses and a bottle of champagne to make a special toast... However we were very disappointed when we were told that it could not to be served to us since you don't a liquor license...
We were also disappointed with the service, I asked for simple things such as coffee and milk and it took for ever for someone to bring us coffee, so I think that your service staff is in need of much improvement.
Thank you.

A wonderful place for friends spending time together. Had the Buffet for lunch . So any choices! We did our best but we were unable to clear even one table. Service was super but not intrusive. The building and gardens added to our time there.

I enjoyed our afternoon together and am thrilled I chose The Okd Mill to feed us.

Our recent visit to the Old Mill was a great disappointment. An open buffet is an outdated concept and is lazy catering. As we were dining with an older friend with mobility issues for whom walking around with a plate would be difficult, we chose to eat from the menu. What a boring unimaginative list of options. A winter soup, Caesar salad, Cobb salad, a burger, wings, fish and chips....you get the picture. This is food from the 60s. I would not eat here again.

Gorgeous setting. Food is great. Well organized, good quality.

Don't get me wrong, service was really good but they had some technical issues with the register and our bill took long to arrive.

Don't get me wrong, food was exquisite. Fancy by everyone's opinions, tasty, but my stomach was a bit off after (do you know what I mean?). I didn't overeat. I just ate something that tasted good, but did not sit right in my stomach.
My daughter complained separately about not feeling well (stomach ached), but did not have any bowel issues.

Despite all tempting options around, my 5 year old still ate like a mouse. Glad kids 5 and under eat free.
