Hostess were dismissive and rude.

Food arrived cold - and they ran out of items we had ordered.

The band was fantastic - only saving grace of the evening.

Booked a table a month prior to a live music event. Called to ask some questions, - had to leave a voicemail and then follow up with an email. When someone finally called me back I was told that the show itself was $25 and we would have to spend $35 on food/drink on an a la carte menu. When we arrived, the staff were friendly, but confused and disorganized. They kept calling my name to then tell me over and over that they were clearning our table. Once we got to the table, it was tucked in a corner, with no view of the show. We asked to be moved or to at least be refunded for the show, since we could not see it. They moved us, but our view was still blocked. Resigned at this point, we accepted our fate only to be surprised by an $80/person prix fix menu. No mention of this was made on the website or in any of the confirmation emails. When I mentioned this to one of the staff, the response was, "Well, you don't have to eat.". If we had known about this, we could have eaten before hand. The prix fix started with lukewarm, bland soup. Cold, hard bread was brought after we finished our soup. The mains were akin to airplane food. We have always been big fans of the Home Smith Bar at The Old Mill and go regularly, but this experience in the main dining room was beyond disappointing.

Very disappointed. We were looking forward to celebrating such a milestone. We were placed in the back and had to listen to kids Christmas music Rudolph, I saw mommy kissing santa Claus. Away from all other diners in the main room. The buns were in the stale side and butter was hard as rock, roast was served with alot of fat and main meal was cold mediocre at such a ourtragious cost,

We were celebrating a momentous occasion and this is what's received disgusting. I certainly would not recommend,

The experience was wonderful. I have always enjoyed the brunch buffet. I was a little disappointed in the vegetarian hot options. Also, the number of salads etc was greatly reduced. A little pricy for the reduced amount of food. However, will happily return.

Very disappointing. Expected a fine dining experience but instead the food was bland, ordinary and not as described on the menu.
There were too many tables in a small space including 2 large tables of 20+ people. To add to our dining dismay, young children were allowed to run between the tables. When we complained to the manager, she asked the parents to handle the situation and was told the children will do as they please. That's the type of people who were at the Old Mill that night. It was our first time there and our last!

Difficult to see such an amazing restaurant so quiet. No doubt Covid-19 has taken its toll on many places now. It does require some much needed love and caring inside. I grew up in that neighbourhood and enjoyed the activities of fine dining, weddings and social events. However, the food was incredibly wonderful and the staff still performing their jobs as the true professionals they are and were back in the day! With help from satisfied customers over the years, this place deserves to be brought back to the splendour it has always given everyone, both staff and customers. And because the staff has kept up the traditions of fine dining, I highly recommend this establishment! Let’s help them out and prove that The Old Mill is still a grand place to enjoy an evening with family and friends!

Disappointing
Server was nice
Very limited menu no very expensive for the entire experience - Venue atmosphere variety and quality

Example - ordered red wine served it in white wine glass…. Has to wait for one red glass to be found. The only one they had.

So much potential for this place to create a unique quality experience

Tables were all in one corner of the restaurant with a low ceiling (not enough air to circulate), close to each other while the rest of the restaurant was empty. The part of the restaurant with a high ceiling was not in service. We did not feel safe and asked staff to give us a table away from the crowded area. They did, but the ambiance was not there, it looked strange and abandoned. The table should have been spread evenly with a safe distance one from another. It was a little depressing experience.

Overall the restaurant was excellent. The staff was friendly, accommodating and attentive.
The only drawback was that the coffee was way overpriced. $4 a cup and then we were not told it was bottomless and were charged each time our cup was refilled!! They need a children's menu as well and more options on the menu especially to accommodate gluten free or vegetarian diets.
The ambience was quiet and cozy with wonderful decor.

Our group of 6 were here for a Sunday dinner. The seafood papardelli was fantastic! (The croquettes received mixed reviews.) The service was great, the staff were very attentive, yet not overly so. This was my first visit to any restaurant since the start of the pandemic, there was lots of spacing between tables. Overall a very enjoyable evening.

First off parking is not good. Lot says parking for Old Mill Inn and when inside we were told we had to go pay $2 an hour.

When we checked in they wished us happy anniversary. It was our 40th.

Side caesar salad served in small soup bowl making it very difficult to eat. Should have been served on a plate. Asked for plate and waiter brought it. Much easier.

Lamb shank was excellent and salmon good.

Asked for bread with meal and bread is not offered.

Ordered wine and waiters kept glasses filled. Service was great.

It was our 40th wedding anniversary and surprised that no complementary champagne or dessert given.

The Old Mill is much how we remembered it from our last visit, some 11 years ago. No buffet due to COVID restrictions but frankly, table service was a better experience.
However, the place is in need of a decor update.
The food was plentiful and well worth the cost.

Waited over 15 minutes before a waiter came to our table. When one finally did he was quite rude told us he was just here to bring water and that he wasn't our waiter and we'd have to wait for our waiter to come before we could order. Waited another near 10 minutes for our waiter and then the wait time for our food to arrive was very long. Used to love going to the Old Mill but it's been like this the last couple of times. They really need to address this lack of service and rude staff. Would usually rave about this place but not anymore.

It felt like a special occasion. We were in a quiet corner which allowed me to hear others in the group.
We are planning on returning for brunch during the Christmas Season.

Old mill restaurant was a really lovely experience. The decorations were fantastic and the food outstanding. Service was great. We had two birthdays to celebrate and our server Lionel brought the creme brûlée cheesecake which was fantastic and he even put a candle on it. The whole experience was terrific. We plan to go back again soon.

We were celebrating our anniversary in Old Mill today as we got married in here. The food was amazing and we enjoyed the pretty patio so much. But the experience from the service was not very well today - There has been nobody came taking order proactively until a long while, including ordering a drink and the meal. And when we got the tea, there was no tea spoon provided, when we got the steak, there was no steak knife provided, so we had to ask for it. Lastly, when getting the bill, we were being asked at least twice about what we had ordered in order to get the bill correctly. So the overall service was not good. Again the food is amazing as always but sometimes service may ruin the brand so there seems to have some improvements needed here.
