Lovely room and ambiance overlooking a dam on the Grand. Complimentary glasses of bubbly for our anniversary celebration was a nice touch. Enjoyed the chicken schnitzel main course. Excellent professional and courteous service by Tricia. Will return soon.

About the restaurant
WE DO NOT RESERVE OUR PATIO
Due to the popularity of our patio and the fact that it is weather dependent, we only reserve tables inside our main dining room. Guests may request the patio when booking; however, we cannot guarantee a table will be available. We have found this to be the most effective way of ensuring that we can welcome everyone who visits.

ADDITIONAL RESERVATION OPTIONS
If the reservation slot you are looking for (including larger parties) is unavailable online, please call the restaurant at 613.392.4333 (option #1) to explore additional options.

TASTE TRADITION
Tomasso’s Italian Grille is an upscale-casual restaurant located on the banks of the famous Trent River in the heart of downtown Trenton. The setting is a perfect combination of contemporary urban style and rustic Mediterranean comfort. We welcome you to a most unique and enjoyable experience, blending our distinctive environment and homemade cuisine, all to service the most valued of customers and friends!

The most stunning and amazing experience when you dive in the patio. I would label this the best restaurant in the overall around including greater Ottawa. Diners with hearing impairment without device would find the patio difficult to hear and communicate. Indoors is also exceptional with its cozy surroundings a lot of stone and wood and even the rest rooms area 5 star. The service is impeccable and kindly.

Ancaster
About the restaurant
One of the most sought after restaurants for a Sunday brunch or a dinner celebration, Ancaster Mill epitomizes the spirit of great hospitality.

Situated beside a creek, with a large dining room built out overlooking a waterfall, Ancaster Mill is in demand year-round for weddings, family or corporate events and celebrations. Restored to keep its authentic character intact, this is a place where ambience fuses with fine food and great service. Our harvest focused cuisine allows guests to experience the spectacular local, seasonal ingredients from our Earth to Table farm and Craft Cut butcher.

We really enjoyed having our anniversary dinner at the Ancaster Mill on July 23, 2024. This where we had our wedding reception 2 years earlier and we couldn't wait to go back! The service is exceptional, food high quality, and view of the waterfall is amazing! Nice touch acknowledging our anniversary with champagne flutes as well.

About the restaurant
Delight in a menu that changes in tandem with the seasons to offer dishes ever inspired by freshness and locality. Drawing inspiration from the indigenous bounty of local fare, the essence of the Elora Mill Hotel & Spa's food philosophy is heightened by an uncompromising aesthetic and exceptional service. Our Kitchen Counter experience is deserving of anticipation, one that breaks down barriers and puts the creative process on full display. Dining at the Elora Mill Hotel & Spa is anything but ordinary.

Unexpectedly perfection! The food was flavourful and delicious! The drinks greatly priced (they only have one beer on draught so don’t recommend going there if you’re a beer drinker lol), we sat on the patio and it was an overall wonderful experience!!

Situated at the historic David Braley and Nancy Gordon Rock Garden, RBG’s newest restaurant features an eclectic menu that boasts fresh, locally sourced ingredients, many picked straight from our gardens! The Bistro’s outdoor patio provides an inspiring bird’s-eye view of the garden’s rejuvenated lower bowl, a perfect spot to relax.
As seasons change, kitchen staff work closely with RBG gardeners to incorporate home-grown ingredients into your garden-to-table culinary experience.

We were greeted and provided with menus shortly after we arrived but no one returned to take our order in a timely manner. We finally had to call a waitress over to help us otherwise all was fine.
