    Not as good as previous years. The menu had fewer choices for our liking and our favourites are no longer available. Most new items on the entree menu are overpriced.

    This was our first visit to Portside Fusion and we really enjoyed everything. We were seated in the large patio overlooking the Port Carling locks. There were patio heaters to keep us warm. The wait staff were very attentive, they were friendly and overall did a great job. The food was delicious! We started with a charcuterie board with delicious salamis, prosciutto, 3 types of cheese, figs, delicate pear slices, grapes, bread sticks and truffle honey. We had salads which were fresh, crisp and had a light but tasty dressing. We had Sea Bass, Lamb chops, gnocchi and steak. The fish was buttery smooth, light, perfectly cooked and delicious. The lamb chops were cooked a perfect “medium” with excellent flavour and a generous portion as was the steak. The gnocchi was delicious as well. We tremendously enjoyed our meal and we will be back soon.

    Great venue, very dedicated serving staff, professional and friendly. The usual good casual Muskoka fine dining experience. The food was a touch off Portside standards with a couple main courses not overly warm. That can be attributed to very large crowd and a couple of new kitchen additions. Most (but alas not all clientele) understand the staff shortage up here in Muskoka leads to some occasional issues. That said most of the food was great and the staff simply outstanding.

    Had a great experience here at lunchtime. Most other good quality restaurants in Port Carling were closed. We sat on the covered patio which was a bit noisy with street traffic-the only drawback in our experience. Service was friendly and informative and the food was outstanding.

    New chef, new menu and very attentive service combined for a great experience. The food was very good but the desserts frankly unbelievable. Crème Brule and sticky toffee can be mundane. These desserts at Portside were simply superb. I'm old and have sampled in many jurisdictions. Portside renditions were top three period. Wow.

    So happy to be back at your restaurant again!! We were warmly greeted and Jenny, our server, was very friendly and patient! It was a cool night and we requested the heater which was brought over right away but would not light. We were very disappointed after several requests that nothing was done about trying to light it. We asked if we could move to the empty table in the corner that had a working heater at it. We were told no…that it was already booked! We left about an hour and a half later and the table we requested with the working heater and surrounding tables were still empty!!! One of the managers (I think) eventually came over (after I went inside to request the heater) and was able to get it working in probably less than 1 min! It was nice to have some heat but would have been more comfortable if they had made the effort to start it sooner. We are really looking forward to coming back to Portside Fusion many times over the next few months!!!

    Where to begin… I booked this place based on the good reviews but our experience was far from amazing. We arrived a little before our slotted time and was seated right away but that was the extent of the “good service” we received. The service was extremely slow. Our waiter took a while to get our orders and they took even longer to cook. Our apps took about 40 min to come and the main another 40 min or longer. We were there for 2 hours with a total time of 30 min for eating and waiting the rest of the time. The food was over cooked and overpriced. The octopus was tough, flavourless and over cooked. The pork that came with their surf and turf (instead of beef) was dry and hard to chew. My husband ordered the dry aged steak and he said the Costco steaks he makes at home is way better. And goodness their mojito is the worst mojito I’ve had. It’s literally just lime juice with ice. Couldn’t taste the tequila and definitely needed more mint. All I can say is the food is mediocre at best. Definitely won’t be back. I wouldn’t recommend this place at all.

    Celebrating a birthday with 2 couples attending. It was a cool night with the threat of rain coming. The waiter didn't ignite the outdoor heaters until we asked him. Also put up the outdoor umbrellas when it started to rain, but no offer to move us inside. The waiter quickly brought out a candle-lit dessert for the birthday person after our dinner plates were removed, but never asked if anyone else at the table wanted to order dessert.

    I was disappointed in the service. It took more than 20 minutes to get water, and on top of that, my husband and I didn't have the chance to finish our dessert; the waiter gave us the bill and took out dessert away. What the hell... And it was only 9:20. A place that we do not feel welcomed! I would not recommend it to friends and family, especially we love port carling.
