A group of six of us visited the Pottery Restaurant on April 13, and found everything to be above standard. Our server was delightful and had a great sense of humour which we all appreciated. Except for one we all had the Prime Rib and it was very generous portions with delicious mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.

We all agreed that we would be back soon.

A little noisy because there was a large party of sixty in. But we were seated in another dining area by ourselves. It was very cold. There was a draft during our stay. The cheesecake was out of this world, very decadent.

Husband and I went while staying at Blue Mountain Village. Was very impressed with the food. One of the nicest meals we have had for a long time at a restaurant. We had AAA sirloin. The service was very good too with Michelle. She was very friendly and helpful. A shuttle is available from the village to the restaurant which we will certainly take advantage of the next time. Overall we had a really nice evening.

Tara was amazing as usual!! We were able to accommodate both tastes - one had the gourmet grilled cheese and soup special that they loved and the other had a dairy allergy and we customized the quinoa salad which she raved about! One of the best client meals I've ever had, thanks for knocking it out of the park!

French onion soup was excellent. Cheese perfectly melted. Not salty. Could be a little warmer, but good start to the meal. Had the Parmesan crusted chicken. Delicious, but bordering on dry. But not so that it is not good. It tasted great actually. Truffle oil was great on the vegetables. ‘buttery’. Had the creme brûlée for dessert, which is where the chef lost me. Texture was more like panda cotta. The ‘white chocolate ice cream’ was icy, not creamy. I love figs, but the candies figs were too sweet to pair with the creme brûlée. Had a blueberry tea. Now that was fantastic.
Service was excellent. Server knew when to ask me how I was doing without being intrusive.
Overall, great dinner with the exception of dessert, but the tea more than made up for it.

Flavour wise, excellent... food was delayed due to feature being too popular so a new batch was in the works. They made it right by offering a free appy while we waited. Appy was awesome... except for Caesar salad which was fresh and crisp, but lacking in dressing. When main finally arrived (filet mignon, feature and seafood pasta), my daughters pasta was hot but our dinners were just warm at best (I thought it was fresh feature we were waiting on?). But, the flavours were awesome on all our dishes - too bad about the temp. They quickly heated my steak up, bringing it up to a medium but the flavour made up for that. At the end and to our surprise, they comped all our food. We just had to pay for our booze - we took a taxi so booze was racking up... anyway, things happen in the restaurant business and The Pottery did everything to try and make it right on a busy Saturday Family Day weekend. Our server did her job well but didn't personalize our experience - she was likely pretty busy. It sounds like we complained all the way through our evening but no, even the wait it was the Pottery that was proactive - we were too busy gabbing to even notice. We just mentioned the temp on our meals and asked for a quick heat up. We will be back (as we have been for 18yrs now at Valentine's day weekend)!

As a frequent Guest to The Pottery this visit with a friend for her Birthday was very disappointing. Despite telling them when I made the reservation that it was a Birthday there was nothing on the table to celebrate a birthday as there has been in the past.
We then had a very long, long wait for any food to be brought to the table and our main meal was only just warm when it arrived. We did not complain to our server Michelle because as always her service was excellent and she was doing her utmost to keep all the other tables and guests happy and satisfied throughout the evening. We heard the table next to us complaining. Michelle did an amazing job considering the number of guests she was having to look after.
We also didn't want to have to wait again for our food to be heated up as it was getting late. If this was my first visit I would likely not be returning.

Not a large selection on the menu to choose from. I had the mushroom polenta and it was extremely salty... to the point of being inedible. There were 5 others in our party ordering various items off the menu. Opinions on individual meals of other 5 ranged from poor to mediocre. Hostess was friendly and accommodating, however, our server was anything but........She was rarely seen and appeared less than enthusiastic to be our server when she did appear at our table.

We had a reservation for 7 and showed up at 7 to hear they needed 10 minutes. After 25 minutes we were finally seated. We did not get a visit from the manager to apologize. The appetizers were delivered after we suggested we receive some complimentary apps. The dinner was delicious for 3 of us but coincidentally one order was extremely salty, and the same risotto as I had which was fine. They did replace that after a few minutes but still no visit from the manager. The server did do a good job. The atmosphere was overall quite cosy and pleasant.

Worst meal I've ever had. Steak way overcooked, halibut salted heavily with TABLE SALT, wine was old and gone bad, service was poor and manager barely compensated us for a horrible experience. Also we came at 530pm and we had our 9 month old son with us and they stuck us in a back corner in a separate part of the restaurant so, and I quote "we would be out of the way". We visited BMR from Toronto and we will never ever come back to that restaurant and also make sure all of our friends never make the mistake of going there either.

Christmas dinner was very tasty and great service. The only con for us and what appeared to be many tables around us was the chilly temperature of the room. We were seated in the lower level which we found out was near an exit. We had our coats on most of the evening unfortunately. Next time I would try to reserve a table in the upper level.

We were disappointed in the quality of the food. My wife's steak was over done, sent back, and returned but not much better. Wine was good though. It may have been an off night however the server led us to believe that there were enough chefs available to make the experience great.
