We enjoyed an excellent meal at Days on Front while waiting for our daughter to write an exam at Queens. The decor is very nice inside (despite the strip mall exterior). I started with a lemon drop martini, while my husband enjoyed a locally brewed beer. The menu is great with many interesting appetizer and entree options. We decided to get 2 appetizers: crab cakes and duck confit poutine. Both were excellent and generous portions. We then shared the boneless beef short rib, which they plated separately for us (always a nice touch that most restaurants don't bother to do). The beef was so unbelievably tender I never even picked up my knife! Their wine list was a great idea “40 under 40” giving a wide variety of reasonably priced wines. For dessert we shared the bread pudding which was warm and delicious. We also ordered the quadruple chocolate cheesecake to go for our daughter to enjoy after her exam. She declared it to be decadently yummy. The service was also excellent making for a very enjoyable evening.

Ambiance is marginal; my table was next to the noisy kitchen. The tables are too close to each other.
A lot of space is taken by the (unoccupied) bar.

The food is very good, but the menu has not changed since my first visit several years ago.

Days on front is consistently amazing in every way.
We are greeted at the front door with a warm inviting smile, our server Erika whom we always get the pleasure of serving us adds warmth and fun to our date night experience. Our food always comes beautifully presented with tastes that dance in your mouth!
Thank you to Chef Jay Legere who always comes out to say hi to us after sending compliments to the back of house. Another successful date night, thank you days on front!

Always a great time at DonF. Took a little longer than normal (I’ve eaten there many times) to get our drinks order (had to prompt the waitress), which was a wee bit embarrassing (brought friends with us who had never been there - had built up DonF to them only to wait for our drinks). After that, everything was spectacular. Food was amazing.

Really nice place to eat with my parents on a special occasion, food lived up to our expectations. My steak was ordered medium rare / pink but came (in my estimate) 'well done' - so bear that in mind if you order the steak. Everyone was very happy with their meals.

Went for dinner with a friend. Food exceptional, service exceptional. Cost of food priced fair - more than reasonable for quality of food. Local produce, meat and alcohol makes it a personal favorite. I always recommend this restaurant to others.

A superb choice for dinner: No nonsense, quiet, friendly and competent service, outstanding presentation and preparation of courses. This is one of the rare establishments that provide supreme quality and hedonistic pleasure matter of fact.

Tip: The wine list is weak - bring and enjoy your own bottle for a modest corkage fee.

Last weekend was our first visit to the restaurant. The food was excellent, the service was attentive and the atmosphere was quaint. This is what I was hoping for when I had made the reservation for my girlfriend's birthday. I was however, confused by the fact that the online reservation asked for the occasion we were celebrating but then no additional effort was made by the restaurant. Why ask if it's an occasion if no cake or dessert is offered, which is usually the case with other establishments? (I did see other guests receive desserts with candles). Otherwise we had a wonderful time!

Great food and service, little pricy but so worth it!
We had a party of four and for our two guests was their first time. It couldn’t have been a better experience, food was outstanding!
We had lamb, chicken, short rib and daily plate, the halibut, along with appetizers beet salad, freshly made butternut squash soup and a caesar salad. We followed up with desserts and coffees, all absolutely yummy!!

Just a super evening, our newbies are now hooked on this restaurant! See you again soon Days on Front!

I would recommend to people but i didn't enjoy my food coming out cold. Then had to wait while they warmed it back up and my friend had to go ahead and eat but her wasn't that warm either. I had the shortrib and that should be hot.

I was there with a friend from Montreal. We are both a little bit deaf owing to our age. Although the tables are fairly close we could hear ourselves speak without having to raise our voices. Thank goodness no music! Nor could we hear other conversations. Nobody needed to raise their voices to hear each other.
The food was delicious and the service was professional. The waitress was delightful and did not ask us if we were enjoying ourselves - seen and not heard - perfect. When the bill was presented to my Dr. friend, who knows Kingston well as he sails here all summer, remarked that the cost was half that of restaurants in downtown Kingston. You will be seeing him again. Also myself with my friends.

This one of our favourite local restaurants, have been going there since they opened, I can say that we have not had a bad experience there yet. The restaurant it self is understated yet stylish , the staff are well trained and informed, service is always excellent, and the food thoughtful and creative , always a great experience, and we have got to know the owner and I am sure if there was an issue he would correct it, days on front has always been an excellent experience for us , highly recommend it.

I have been going to your restaurant since it opened. I have sang it’s praises to many people. This was the first time that I went that my husband and I were both not impressed with our meals. I don’t know what changed but it was lacking in flavour and quality. Sorry hate writing bad reviews but we were very disappointed as was our company.

Incredible food and great service. The crab cakes are amazing, the scallops are amazing and the pork belly is amazing!!! We've had the steak and frites, the seared duck, the tuna, the pork tenderloin, the lamb, and the salmon special. The biggest "problem" is having to decide which delicious dish to have. Our complements to the Chef for every single thing on which we have had the pleasure of dining.

My only reason for not giving a 5 star accross the board was due to the scallop appetizer. It was tasty, however with just 3 tiny scallops I did not feel it was worth the price at $14.

I have lunched here for years. The service is always excellent, the ambiance lovely. However, the lunch menu has not changed in a very long time. There are very few GF options. It needs modernizing. The food was not particularly attractively presented, not usually an issue except the sloppy presentation does not reflect the price paid. The food was not even very tasty. In addition, the bathroom was not well looked after. The sign says air freshener is supplied by a certain company, when I picked up the can it was hairspray, lidless, with a gummed up sprayer. The table it was on rocked back and forth. Again, no big deal, but I feel DOF is an upscale place, and you expect better attention to detail. I fear maybe they are getting blase with their popularity and losing that edge that made it a special treat to go to. Sorry to say this.
