The Guild exemplifies a new and exciting take on the finest traditions of butchery, cookery and bar-keeping. The name is inspired by guild halls from the past, which served as a meeting places and secret societies for artists and merchants. Honouring local beef, game and fowl, and utilizing traditional cooking techniques over wood and coal, The Guild chefs are preparing a fitting homage to proud Canadian carnivores.

Very attentive service from Tess, she made us feel welcome and answered all our questions regarding the menu as it was our first time at the Guild. We had the chicken liver, beef tacos and bone marrow for appetizers, would order again except bone marrow which had very little marrow. The lamb sirloin was delicious as was the hamburger. Beer was cold and frothy and it was awesome to be dining on the patio on Stephen Avenue!

The Guild provided a nice setting for our family gathering and birthday celebration. The wide variety of drinks were fun and very tasty. The jerk chicken, mahi-mahi, and lamb excellent! Unfortunately the pasta was undercooked, not quite al dente. Service was good, not great. We were disappointed when no dessert was available.

First time that I had to put sauce on a steak, in order to eat it. Is medium rare that hard to do?

My friend and I went to the Guild for lunch. We ordered rib steak and I noticed immediately that the steak had a lot of fat around it and it wasnt cooked well. The drinks were too strong for my taste.

Booked a table for 2 on outdoor patio 2 weeks prior as that is what covid restriction allowed at the time. Get there at the time of our reservation they ask us where we want to sit and we say patio they state that they had us booked for indoor (ok). I spotted a few empty tables walking up to the restaurant host but they took a few minutes until “they figured it out” then seated us right in the corner right next to the speakers which were at full blast. It was so uncomfortable we lasted 2 minutes at the table until we decided to go talk to the hostess to go sit inside. Extremely disappointed in the experience as it was our first time there and probably the last. And absolutely loved opening this review up stating indeed it was “outdoor patio dining for 2”.

Another great evening at The Guild!
I usually have the lamb burger, but I changed it up with the Bouillabaisse which was very tasty - especially on a cool and rainy evening. There is a nice amount of seafood in there! The pizzas are always good as well!

We were so happy to be eating out at restaurants again!

Well done, Guild - we love coming here!

I've been to The Guild numerous times over the years, and the food is always fantastic! The service is also attentive without being overdone. The only thing that took away from the experience was the location of our table. I would highly recommend they remove the patio table that's right behind the server's station. We overheard a lot of conversations and it felt very crowded at times if there were more than a couple of people at the station at once. Other than that, it was a really nice evening, and I'd recommend the restaurant! The interior is also beautiful, and I look forward to being able to enjoy that again when things open up more.

Made a reservation here for my boyfriend, brother and I. Even though we didn't have any sun the heaters kept us warm! The food was very tasty, and the restaurant itself (had to walk inside to use the washroom) was gorgeous. I will be adding the Guild to my places to dine during celebrations. The waitress was new, but she was very quick to find the answer any questions we had.

The steak was fork tender, the potatoes were creamy and tasty, the roasted tomato was popping with favor and the greens were crispy and tasty. The asparagus was next level with a nice char and the bacon....there are no words to describe how amazing the bacon was.

Food is always good! They unfortunately don’t have a kids menu, but they do have high chairs. I honestly don’t understand why they don’t just put a basic pasta and the happy hour sliders and a small pizza together and call it a kids menu. Unless they just don’t want families to dine there. Service is generally good, on this occasion it was very good.
