The atmosphere was super nice but relaxed. Wait staff and reception were very professional and friendly. The food was fabulous! We tried appetizers, entrees, wine, desserts and every bite was delicious.

Our first time at The Guild House and we were not disappointed. All of the food was expertly prepared and the service was top notch. A couple of the appetizers sounded and looked better than they tasted (underwhelming), but the entrees were fantastic and overall it was a great experience.

I usually think C. Mitchell restaurants are pretty good, but not great. Guild House may be the best of the bunch. Very high quality food, but avoids a lot of fine dining cliches.

The food was unique and tasty but I wouldn’t rave about it. The ambience is gorgeous- romantic yet still wonderful for business dinner or night with friends.

Server was stretched so thin he didn’t come around until after the meal was done. We’d have ordered more drinks and dessert had we asked. People at other tables were putting hands in the air just to get the attention of staff members. It’s unfortunate for such a beautiful place.

I love Cameron Mitchell restaurants because they are usually very good, plus I have a gluten allergy and nobody does GF better.

BUT our server repeatedly left our glasses empty and had placed both bottles of wine out of reach. I had to ask for a refill. He brought glasses for everyone when he brought the second bottle, but then took them away because most of us were still finishing the champagne. So later in the meal, I had to request a glass for the Chardonnay.

One person asked for apps but he didn’t ask if anyone else wanted any, so we didn’t order ours until the first order was out. In general, the service was the worst part of the evening.

The food was just good with the exception of the Wagyu appetizer, which was amazing. Nothing wrong with the food, it just wasn’t outstanding.

Other than getting to meet up with friends, it wasn’t a great dining experience.

GM Grant Marsh always takes great care of the detail and Joel, our server, was attentive without being a bother during a business dinner we were having. The food, drinks and wine are always outstanding!

Beautiful setup and decor. Overall a good experience.

Menu options were limited but the food we ordered tasted great. Decent portion sizes. Not to big but not to small. Good service, good drinks, and good food but the best part was the ambience. Worth trying at least once in my opinion.

Somewhat pricey. 2 people - salad, drinks, entrees is gonna cost between $100-125. Wine was meh.
We were from out of town. I would probably try something else just to mix it up before I go back again but if I was local this would be added to our regular rotation list.

When I pay this much I expect the food to be fabulous , and it was OK. I actually had to send an item back which is the first time I have had to do this in 10 years, their soup of the day was under seasoned , and flavorless, and just plain was not good at all.
Overall the food was fine, but not a fine dining experience that I would expect in a $40 entree.

Lovely setting and super friendly staff, but the food was dull and generally bland and not a good value. I love that the chef uses lots of local ingredients, but it remains up to the chef to impart flavor that transcends the ingredients themselves. Alas, I dropped $100 including tip for bland bland bland.

Beautiful restaurant!!! They also honored our seating request so we had a nice quiet table for two off to ourselves. Our server was excellent. The food was very good - super unique items available - but portions are fairly small. It was just such a lovely place to dine....I'll return for that reason alone!

Overall, this place is fantastic. Great food, great atmosphere. Our service had two parts. Our server was fantastic. He was knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. The front of the house was very disapointing. We made a reservation for 7:45 pm arrived as we should about 7:40 and checked in. The hostess told us there was a 30-40 minute wait even with our reservation. Slightly baffled we stayed positive and gave her our number to call and went next door to the hotel bar for a drink. Once called, about 30 minutes later my wife went to check in while I paid up at the bar. My wife told her she wanted to wait for me to sit down and she said "no sorry I have to seat you". We had to wait 30 minutes but the hostess couldn't wait 2. Both my wife and I are in customer service and understand things happen but this particular person was far from capable of distracting us with conversation or compliments. She was very rude and unfortunately for our wonderful server she took money out of his pocket. Everything was spectacular and I would recommend to friends in a second but it would come with a large caution on check in and the first face they see.

It looks beautiful on the inside, but the food could have been better. The wait was too long and we had to send part of our order back because it was undercooked. However, the server was outstanding.
