Our waitress was incredibly sweet and definitely did what she could to make our meal very enjoyable. The meat and cheese tray was delicious and plenty for to share between 2 people. We ended sharing a pizza which was also very delicious and flavorful. Thin crust was yummy. Will definitely be coming back to try other items on this menu.

Excellent service, delicious and fresh food. Wish they had more vegan options (the previous menu before the renovation was so good). Will definitely be back! Impressed!

We understood this restaurant had just opened so we expected a few hiccups.
The restaurant was beautiful. Understandably staff are still learning the menu. My husband received my drink and I received his - we were told they were the opposite to what they actually were. Not a big deal. They were unique and tasty.
My husband ordered a weekend at Bernie's cocktail and the menu states a cane sugar rim however it came with ceasar salt. We mentioned this to our server Lauren who had it fixed for us however the bartender told her to tell us it was supposed to be salt and sugar. Not sure if that is correct. The remade drink with sugar only was much better.
My husband had the chicken and waffles. The chicken was excellent however he said the waffles didn't have any flavor and the dish really needed a syrup or some type of sauce as it was breaded chicken on dry waffles. Chicken was cooked perfectly and the coleslaw was tasty.
I ordered the gnocchi squash cream. All of my favorite ingredients however we were really disappointed. It had absolutely no flavor and we thought they may have forgot the shallots and garlic. The gnocchi was very mushy. We put it aside and weren't going to say anything however our server Lauren noticed and was great offering us another option however my husband had already finished his dinner and we didn't want to wait. Lauren was very professional and offered to even wrap something up to go. We said not to worry and one day we would come back to try something else on the menu.

First time we tried this place and it was top notch. The best Franks and butter chicken wings we have ever had. The fries were nice and thin and delicious. The chicken and waffles were also outstanding. Will definitely be back!

we booked Bar Mason for a last minute New Years Eve dinner, surprizingly they had table available.
The restaurant is quite large and bright no feeling of sitting on top of fellow diners.
Service was good and attentive without being obnoxious.
Food was really good, we all had pizza and really enjoyed it.
I hope more people share their good experiences with Bar Mason as Guelph needs more place like it.
There is a lovely looking patio which will be very nice in the summer.

A surprisingly good hotel restaurant! We were a party of 5 and service was wonderful. The ambiance of this restaurant is cozy and thoughtfully well-done. We enjoyed appetizers, wines, entrees and desserts and everything was delicious and brought out in a timely manner. A great restaurant that I recommend!

We celebrated my wife’s birthday. We have 4 children who came with us. Sometimes we don’t always feel comfortable in restaurants because of this, but not here. Our kids are not overly loud - they are just kids. We felt completely comfortable and welcomed here.

The surprise dessert for the birthday was a welcome surprise.

Service was outstanding; food was delicious- we couldn’t have hoped for better.

I’ve recommended Bar Mason to pretty much everyone I’ve spoken to since I’ve been there. Great atmosphere, so gorgeous on the inside- I was shocked to see it so empty! The food was great and local, the service was awesome and they were really accommodating with allowing my date and I to not only change our reservation last second but also in letting us sit for as long as we wanted and chat. I’ll definitely be continuing to recommend it as well as make future dinner plans here!

Made a reservation for 10:30am on Saturday. The restaurant wasn’t even open and the people who worked there (including the chef) were socializing in the dining area instead and couldn’t be bothered to tell us they were closed. I talked to the girl at the cafe and she said she is the only place open. Why would they be taking reservations on open table if they weren’t serving tables yet?? I even checked on the website for breakfast hours before went left home and they are not listed.

I have been before for dinner (service was good, the pizza is very mediocre) but I wanted to give them another try for breakfast. I won’t be returning.

We went to Bar Mason for a date night. They had renovated recently and everything looked great! The food was delicious, and we even got to watch the pizzas being made right in front of us. Service was a little slow considering the amount of people in the restaurant at the time, but overall a good experience.
