    As always my husband and I enjoy our meal . We have never been disappointed with their Rueben sandwich . It’s wonderful . We took our friends , there for the first time . They too enjoyed the Rueben , with a side of sweet potato fries , which were also quite tasty . The view is spectacular. Our server was Jeff , who was very attentive and a pleasure . He definitely made you feel welcome . We look forward to coming back

    What a rip off! $90 per person for a buffet that should have been half that. No selection of food - very disappointed. Coming from downtown Toronto, we expected a massive spread full of selection, not the smallest buffet we've ever seen with no choices - for Thanksgiving dinner! It was our most expensive meal out and we go out to eat every weekend downtown and travel the world. Nearly $300 for 2 people was nuts. Never again.

    We had a reservation for 7:30 PM. We were seated promptly and given menus and brought in water. We then waited almost a half an hour before a server came to our table to offer us a drink. This was quite disappointing. Although, I will say the rest of the evening was fantastic and our waitress went above and beyond to make sure our evening was a success.

    We sat inside. It was a quiet evening, we dined early and it was the Monday of a long weekend. The food was very good, only one member of our party was disappointed- she wouldn’t recommend the seafood linguine. The service was good, friendly and informative but we did have to refill our own wine glasses. The views were lovely. Overall a pleasant evening out.

    We booked the long weekend five course firework dinner package for $120 per person. We were left unattended and later learned this was a buffet rather than a five course set meal. The buffet consisted of COLD pork or salmon tacos (with no additional toppings or sauces), rice, two types of undercooked potatoes, a salad, dried out chicken drumsticks and oysters (oysters were lovely). There was absolutely no sense to the menu as not only did it not feel cohesive, but it lacked flavour, didn’t cater to a vegetarian at all, and was cold. How could a luxury resort of this type offer such a poor, basic menu and charge a ridiculous price. The poor staff were also overworked, working 14-16 hour days, and the frustration and exhausted showed. Disappointed - will not be returning.

    If you are eating outside, the views are unbeatable! However, we were a little disappointed by the food and the service. The restaurant was not overly busy but it still took us 2 hours to have a glass of wine and pizza. If you are going here, do not expect to be anywhere fast. We were also disappointed that, when we arrived for our reservation at 6:30 they were already out of certain menu items, which we were not told about until after we had ordered our drinks. They informed us that they were out of fish and chips, which is what both my husband and I had been looking forward to having. We also heard another server tell a table next to us that they didn't have all of the drinks on their menu either. The food was okay - we eventually ordered pizzas - but definitely not worth the amount of money that you pay. Regardless of the beautiful views...

    The resort looked very grand. I didn't stay there as a guest but had dinner in the restaurant. Scenery was beautiful: restaurant patio overlooked woods and golf course. I had fish and chips. The fish was OK, nice fish in a deep golden crispy batter. However, there was a slight burnt flavour which I think came from a too high frying temperature in an oil that was used a bit too long. The chips were shoe string fries that were good but about the same as you'd get anywhere else. The 2 sauces provided, tar tar and garlic aioli were quite good but only one was home made, the other purchased. I would have expected that for a higher end restaurant, both would be made in house. Cole slaw was very tasty. By comparison, I had fish and chips at another close by higher end restaurant last year that I wouldn't recommend at all although I've had very good food there at other times. Menu had nice selection so perhaps I made the wrong choice. Waitress had recommended something else although she said fish & chips were good when I asked. As I said, my choice was OK but would not repeat.
