The Wildcraft host welcomed us into the restaurant. We asked to sit outside, and he straightaway accommodated us. We sat on the patio at a table that was well shaded and which had a clear view. Our server appeared, introduced herself and asked us warmly if we'd like a drink. We ordered - my date had chicken and a salad, I had the squash and salmon soup of the day and tagliatelle with wild mushrooms and bacon. I drank a 6oz class of Niagara Valley red, and my date had a white Italian. The wine was excellent. Our dishes arrived. The soup was superb - slightly sweet with the salty tang of salmon. The tagliatelle was very generous in its portions of mushrooms and bacon and a little bit too oily. But the taste was excellent, the pasta was fresh and al dente. My date said her dish was very tasty. Our server was attentive, courteous and helpful. Overall, we had a very pleasant and satisfying time at Wildcraft.

Service was very good, for the most part.
i had left a used knife and fork from an appetizer on a side plate. When our mains arrived this fork should have been replaced with a clean cutlery. This is my only criticism.
We enjoyed our evening and will return.

We found that the house wine was too expensive, the menu was small and 1 of their main dishes was unavailable. My date ordered rigatoni in a pesto sauce-we thought angel hair pasta would have been a better choice. I ordered strip loin steak and it came with fries-it would have been nice to have a vegetable with the dinner. It has great ambiance and the wait staff were very good. The patio is beautiful on a warm night.

3 out of the 4 meals were very good, my pork chop was over done and dry.
A dining experience at this price tag should not suffer from over done meat.
That being said, everything else was very much on point.
The wait staff is excellent.
Everything looks very nice and professional.
Portion sizing was hit and miss depending on what was ordered.
Although nothing was done WRONG, I feel this place just isn't up to snuff for the amount of money it will cost you. Therefore I cannot recommend.

This weekend my partner and my mother came to the restaurant to celebrate my mother’s 70th birthday. My partner Curtis, made a reservation close to a week prior and we called ahead to let your staff know that we were coming in for a birthday.

The reservation was maintained but we had very poor service. Our server was unfriendly, we had to flag him down to order, request more water, ask for a cocktail list etc. We felt rushed for our special dinner, which was peculiar because the restaurant did not seem overly busy.

When the food arrived, the scallop meals looked like they had spent some time under the heating lamp.

And while I hate to complain - but having called ahead to notify staff about a birthday - no mention was made of it.

We came from Toronto for the dinner, carefully selected the restaurant and frankly had an unenjoyable time. I wouldn’t have taken the time to let you know if it weren’t for the fact that I have previously worked in the service industry in Waterloo and know the value of ensuring customers are comfortable and left feeling that they would like to return.

We enjoyed our meal at Wildcraft. It has a cosy atmosphere and the service was great. My only negative comment is that the prices seem quite high for the type of food served compared to other similar restaurants. Overall we enjoyed our meal.

None of the food was very tasteful. We ordered 4 dishes . Hummus was very generous and was the best of the 4 dishes we ordered. The 2 different t pasta dishes and the seared tuna bowl were all lacking flavor. Very disappointed for the price point of the food.

I don’t know why the server was pressing us to place our order quickly. I was quite irritated by this and wanted to leave but it was too much hassle to find another restaurant . I’m not going there again for sure . It was lunch hour but the place didn’t appear to be too busy.

Delicious. Excellent service. Very happy with our choice. Would drive to Waterloo again for this restaurant.

Normally I hate capers, and wasn’t thrilled to see them on my Caesar salad. They were DELICIOUS. Love how you roasted them. Changes the flavour into something AWESOME.
Liked them so much I came home and roasted some for the salad I made for dinner last night!
Thanks for a great meal and for increasing my own culinary repertoire.

Reserved through Open Table and got in quickly which was such a great start! We were seated in the bar area which was quieter as they had multiple parties in the main dining section. We were eating out for our anniversary dinner and chose Wild Craft which we had enjoyed back before we got married. Ordered the Steak Frites (subbed with sweet potato fries) and Seared Atlantic Salmon, with Double Baked White Chocolate Cheesecake (a MUST TRY!) for dessert! All the food was cooked wonderfully and so delicious. Service was very prompt and attentive. HIGHLY recommend.

Didn't really enjoy the dining experience. I brought my family because the pictures online looked really great. But instead they seated us in the corner with just a view of the kitchen. The restaurant wasn't busy so I don't see why you would seat people like that on purpose.

The food was exceptional in taste and quality while a little overpriced for the size of the portions. Outside dining was okay - cushions on the metal chairs would be a bonus but a nice atmosphere. Wait staff service was lacking...forgot part of our order. Table next to us was on her phone for 35 minutes, totally inappropriate for a upscale dining atmosphere.

It was a nice outdoor dining experience. At the time of reservation I was asked what was the occasion and I replied thinking that there would be some recognition since I provided that personal information, however there was no mention at all from the staff.
This was disappointing and only because the restaurant asked for the information, so I guess you were just collecting information with no intention of doing anything to reciprocate.
Otherwise staff was cordial and tried to please

We have been coming to Widcraft for a number of years to celebrate special occasions with family and friends. We have always been very happy with our visit except for our last time there on June 10/18. I had the salmon entree and was very disappointed with the the accompaniments. No one at our table of 8 were impressed with their meal. We felt it was too expensive for what we got.

I am a big fan of all Charcoal's group of restaurants. You can always count on great food and service. Today, food was very good for our group of 6. One salad needed to be re-done (bacon not cooked enough) but it was handled quickly. The service was lacking, very slow today which is not their usual so it was a bit disappointing. We waited almost an hour for our appetizers to come out, then another almost 45 for the mains to come. They bent over backwards apologizing for the delay and making up by comping the apps. Everyone has an off day, am sure it will be great next time! Thankfully, the sun was shining and we were enjoying the fabulous patio they have.

Excellent service by Adam. Everyone enjoyed their meal very much, especially lemon lavender pound cake, Wildcraft burger and shrimp tempura appetizer. Scallop/prawn entree was, in my opinion, somewhat overpriced for number of scallops and prawns, but nonetheless, a very enjoyable dining experience.
