My family and I took my wife out for a special birthday dinner and we enjoyed it so much. The food was fantastic, the drinks were great, the service was so helpful and friendly and it’s pretty hard to beat the atmosphere and the view overlooking the water. It’s definitely not a place you get to visit that often due to the price, but it’s such a treat when we get to dine here. To top it off, I think I had one of the best desserts I’ve ever had and it was the perfect ending to a great night. Highly recommend this place for special occasions.

Food flavor was excellent, but both courses were lukewarm, not hot. When I sent back the entree and waited 20 minutes for the replacement, it was barely hotter. So the food temperature was not to my taste. Main waiter was very good, but servers need more training. They forgot to bring me a spoon to eat my broth-based appetizer until I asked for it.

For the price I would expect better service and hotter food. That said, the views are great and the food composition and flavors were innovative and well executed.

The desert was very good.

They did waive all charges after my complaint, which shows they care and genuinely understood they had spoilt our evening. For that alone they they deserve a second chance. Add to that the flavorful food and I will probably be going back again when the menu periodically changes.

Definitely worth a try.

Always have a wonderful time dining at the mill. We reserved the outside dome dining and was worried we wouldn’t get one but we did. We had such a lovely experience I highly recommend. They are warm fun and romantic. Food was incredible as always. Service always above and beyond.

Lovely setting.
The man who greeted us looked at our QR codes but did not scan them. Did not look at our i.d.
A chip in the wine glass, wrong year of wine brought out ( different than what was stated on the wine list).
My brother-in-law said the spaetzel was too salty in the lamb ragu. My sister and I were very happy with our meals, risotto and pasta. My dessert arrived but my sister’s semifreddo did not.
Lovely bread.
For the prices being charged, not satisfactory.

Had a front row table at the window looking straight into the Elora Gorge. It was snowing and could not have been more idyllic. The food was very good and priced accordingly. Service was perfect - around if you needed them for something but not always asking you how things are. This was a business meeting and it was quiet enough for a conversation. If you want a relaxed atmosphere - this is it. I cannot wait to go back in the near future.

We were pleasantly surprised at the renovations. We haven't been there for a number of years. The washroom facilities were lovely.

We ordered the fish and chips, which were to die for. I can honestly say that I have never had such tender crust. It melted in our mouths.

The staff were extremely pleasant.

We ordered Tawze ciders at the beginning as our drinks. We had eaten our sppetizers and started eating our meal when I had to remind the waiter that we had ordered them. He brought them right away. Unfortuantely he brought one that was not a Tawze cider in error. By the time I got a chance to tell the server and her brought it my main course was finished :(. In the end I couldn't finish it before we left the restaurant due to the timing of everything. Please note that it was my birthday and at the very end of the meal when we were paying our bill the tiniest cupcake was given to me with a bunch of sprinkles. It seemed like odd timing for that like an after thought.

Elora Mill Restaurant has quickly become our favourite restaurant in the area! The staff is very attentive to our needs and makes us feel like VIP’s! The menu is extraordinary making it difficult to choose an entree. We stayed at the hotel with a spa package…a must! A truly relaxing experience that nourishes the body! We will definitely return. Kudos to everyone 😊

Excellent food and friendly wait staff. Beautiful view of the gorge from certain seating. Book a reservation early for special occasions. The crab apple mille-feuille on the dessert menu is a huge win for sweet/sour fans.

The main draw of this restaurant for me was the view, but although I specifically requested a window table in my reservation, and all but one table were empty when we arrived, we were offered a table further away from the windows. I asked for a different table, and they were going to set one up, but then they noticed a window table that was already set up - however, it didn't offer the best view of the Gorge.
The food was decent, but overpriced for what it is - this must be because running Elora Mill is expensive, and because of the insistence on local ingredients - because of which the menu rotates weekly, but I was disappointed to find that the menu on the web-site was outdated and the menu when we arrived was less appealing to me.
It was a bit odd to receive a huge platter of bread with butter - this seems like a relic of the past, or cheap chain places, or places that pretend to be fancy. The bread was delicious, and I know the Mill has a bakery, but this also ties into the overall pretentiousness of the place, including the staff who looked at us with judgement when we walked in, and were scoping out the dining room at one point, as though expecting diners to misbehave in some way. Having worked in food&bev, I know this is because servers always have to be at the ready to anticipate and fulfill customer needs, but they also had a somewhat unfriendly attitude, including our server. It's funny that they take themselves so seriously, but most of the clientele people who aren't well-dressed etc., and are probably there just because it is fancy.
I ordered a Halloween drink that looked very green on Instagram, but in real life was more dull, which seems like somewhat false advertisement.
I was happy to finally have a meal at the restaurant and not just a drink like in the past, but it's only really worth it depending on what's on offer that week.
