    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.

    I took my daughter here for lunch to celebrate her 16th birthday on a "ladies' day" outing. Our view was spectacular from the patio. Menu was nicely varied with good vegetarian/vegan options for her. Service (Jessie) was attentive and very lovely. Although pricey, it is a real dining experience, set in the heart of Muskoka and all aspects of our special lunch were excellent. The food is fresh, well prepared and visually beautifully presented (Mediterranean bruschetta, salmon poke bowl, pizza margherita). Would definitely recommend...we will be back with friends and family soon.

    Waitress seemed annoyed that we were there early. 730am. She made a few comments that made us think like our presence annoyed her because she had to do work. Sucks when you spend 2000 for one night and that’s the treatment you get.

    Very pleasant outdoor dining on the large patio overlooking tees and greens 20m below. Our 4 plates were well prepared and presented with good sized portions. Staff very energetic and enthusiastic. Later dining times risk having some mosquitos join for the dessert course as the sun sets. Very convenient for Tesla drivers as one can fill both yourself and your car as you dine.

    Sat on terrace in wonderful weather. Great view over the golf course and surrounding area. Service was great; friendly and attentive. Food was below mediocre. We had pizza, pasta and fish and chips. Don’t think the chef had actually tasted their own cooking - or they simply didn’t care. Next time, I’ll make a campfire and bring some wieners - it’s much better, honestly.

    Based on two separate visits, solid service - cheerful, efficient and helpful staff. Food was delicious, except for the Margherita pizza, which was oddly bland compared to the perfectly seasoned dishes. Looked more like a white pizza base as there was scant sauce, too much rubbery cheese, crisp cooked basil didn’t lend much flavour, and the crust didn’t taste as good as it looked. Asked for olive oil, which was brought promptly, but that didn’t help salvage it. Took it to go and my kids and husband still didn’t like it the next day either, which is a first for us, so it was tossed. Falafel Bowl had very little food since I was expecting a bowl - served on a rectangular appetizer plate with five mini falafels, a tbsp of quinoa tabouleh (why so little, it was really good!), dry pita with barely any hummus to put on the pita anyway, and four paper-thin cucumbers. Presentation was pretty and falafels were amazing though. Fish and chips were great, my kids loved the steak mini fajitas, chicken fingers were perfect with one of the best side serving of veggies I’ve seen on a kid’s entrée, and my son’s quesadillas were not as expected (no signs of being grilled for longer than a moment) and quite basic with some shredded chicken and barely-melted cheese, so they just opened and fell apart. The Salmon Poke bowl was excellent - avocado and sesame seeds would’ve been nice additions, but it was definitely a winner with fresh ingredients and bright flavours. Exceptional ambiance.

    Not the greatest experience. Both of our servers were wonderful though (dinner and breakfast). Unfortunately on both occasions we heard the kitchen staff yelling profanities, totally unnecessary considering the atmosphere. We paid a lot for our meals and that shouldn’t be expected for the experience. I strongly recommend not having lentils served on the side as it resembles cat food-totally revolting. The tenderloin was over cooked as well. Unfortunate to say the least! As a side note, I did call the hotel multiple times after our visit and received no response after being forwarded to a manager, no one got back to us! Very poor customer service on that end for sure. I wanted to provide feedback to them directly, but here we are…
