it would have been nice to have a dinner menu with more comfort food on it too many dishes that were for a more formal setting. The salmon was very good as well as the chicken dish. The waitress was very friendly and well informed on the menu; over all it was a nice place for a quiet dinner.

Not many options on the menu for picky eaters I don't like seafood so ordered only pasta dish with braised beef ...a bit spicy for my liking but was good, drinks were amazing my husband said best rye Manhattan he has ever had should add it to their menu drink list for sure ...was really cold in restaurant but the super nice server turned it down and made an immediate difference was very nice of her to do that ...service was excellent and quick. Same with when we moved over to fluid patio the server was fun and seemed to be able to read my mind very excellent servers and staff at both places.

This restaurant had very good reviews and we broke our rule of eating in a hotel chain restaurant. The restaurant was pretty and we had a great table with a view. The host and waitress were welcoming and fast. We ordered an appetizer and it took almost one hour for it to come out- Korean chicken bites- 4 of them - terrible and small. No bread is served. I asked and the waitress said not tonight. She was apologizing to every table around us... our meal came after maybe 90 minutes- over cooked 45 CAD steak- we did send it back to get cooked properly. It came out quickly and was cooked properly on the second go... something on this bill should have been taken care of- wine, a dessert. We understand covid but waiting almost 2 hours for dinner is insane. Stay away as it's expensive and they also might want to dust the blinds in the picture windows in the dining room- loaded with dust.

All the "on tap" beer were craft beers.
Having at least one "main stream commercial light beer" would be great.
Bud,coors, for example.

Otherwise it was all great.

My wife had the chicken and I had the salmon. Once again an incredible meal and in our opinion best food in town. There is a reason we had our wedding here and continue to come here. Best value best service and best food. This place has it all.

The meal was very good for myself and my wife . The service was excellent and the view from the restaurant was great . This is very minor but we both wanted the battered fish for supper but was not available except for lunch . I found this a little surprising because fish should be on the supper menu as well . This is a healthy meal and does not take much preparing to cook fish . But , in all , everything was very good !

Marla was a friendly and efficient waitress .. it was a pleasure having Marla service our table. The tuna tacos, fish-n-chips, chicken sandwich and chipotle burger were all delicious ...The View never fails with it's diverse menu. Another nice meal with a great view of the river.

Our server was delightful. Dinner was tasty, although the beef ravioli was only warm-cool- it must have been sitting awhile before served to us. The quiness chocolate cake was stale and we could hardly put our fork into it. The server quickly removed it from our bill when we told her.

We went there to celebrate a birthday. All things considered in these times the table was great. The service was kind and timely. The drinks were ample and very good. The food was very good, as was the presentation. The ice cream cake was all they said it would be. I would recommend this place to others with no hesitation.

We visited this restaurant last year and had a very positive experience. The name of the place is correct; the restaurant has great views and is a very nice place. However, we had some issues this time, which was probably bad luck. Our waitress told us up front that her favorite appetizer is the"duck bomb". My wife and I do not like this; we sometimes feel that such recommendation may just be a method to sell something that the restaurant wants to get rid of. Anyway, because we like smoked duck breast (the ingredient of the "duck bomb"), we ordered it. It was a prosciutto wrapped medley of cheese and a bit of duck breast that I had a hard time to taste because the prosciutto overwhelmed everything. Anyway we like prosciutto; it was OK. The special was white fish. I repeatedly asked how it is prepared and served but to my surprise it arrived with a lot of beet (so did my wife's chicken). I do not eat beet. Anyway, I pushed it aside, but both the white fish and the chicken, my wife ordered, were overdone, dry. Our waitress was a very nice person, who paid a lot of attention to our neighboring table with four people, and forgot about minor things like cutlery. At the end of the dinner my wife realized that her chair had a bunch of french fries squeezed in the back of her chair; this was obviously from a previous guest because we had no french fries. Her pants did not get greasy, fortunately. With a bit of more attention to details (including from the chef), this restaurant could be a 5 star venue.

The table was in a terribly place in the restaurant-right in the middle in an awkward place that made you feel like you were on display-and so small there was barely room for the glassware. The lighting was far too bright as well. Not a comfortable or enjoyable experience overall. While I understand they try to squeeze in extra seating on a night like New Years, they should inform the client that ‘this is is the case when they continue to accept reservations. Having dined here before, we didn’t expect the seating would be different. The service was great overall though.

Brunch was spectacular with a wide variety of great tasting food. Our occasion was a96th birthday with 5 generations present. As company was from out of town could not have asked for anything more. Great price with exceptional buffet from traditional breakfast fare, personalized omelets to several vegetarian options and perfect roast beef with trimmings and salads. Deserts were various and outstanding. Service was prompt and very friendly. Highly recommended.

I don't go out to eat very often but when I do I go to the View. Being Vegan, choices of fine dining restaurants in the Sault are very limited. The staff makes you feel like you are the only customers there. But it's the food that is the star. Looking forward to my next visit.

Unfortunately when we arrived the hostess told us right away that our table was reserved for 12pm, even though I had made the reservation online, days before. So we basically had to rush through breakfast and didn't have the option of the Buffet Brunch. We would have spent more money on the brunch than ordering off the menu, so its too bad The View lost out on that. We felt very rushed, and once we left, the restaurant was empty so not sure what the hurry was?! Still on the fence as to whether or not I would return.

Staying at the hotel on a guys motorcycle trip and the restaurant was conveniently located on lower level. The staff and service was friendly, fast and excellent. The view of the river from the table was a plus. The food was presented well, cooked and seasoned perfectly. One of the members of our group said he would come back to the hotel just to eat the same dish her ordered in the restaurant. An excellent choice if in the area.
