We had a nice experience, but the cadence of the service changed when another couple that were clearly “VIP” sat down next to us. The serving staff that were previously chatty and easy going suddenly became stiff, more formal and less attentive. That was a little disappointing for such an upscale and highly rated establishment. No one guest should feel less important then the next, especially when guests are seated in such close quarters and can clearly see and feel the distinction. Nevertheless it was still fun, the food was original and the architecture of the main house very charming and cozy.

Loved everything about the dining experience at Langdon Hall except all the patrons were seated right next to each other and there were a lot of empty tables throughout the restaurant. We were sitting arms length away from the couple sitting next to us. Too close for comfort.

This was one of the worst $800 dining experiences we've had in Canada. After reading that Langdon Hall is Canada's number 4 restaurant, we traveled two hours excited to experience gastronomical excellence. The hostess and the person seating us were most gracious and welcoming. We selected the tasting menu and from that point on we were extremely disappointed. We were at a table for two; however, on both sides of us within inches, there were other couples at tables for two, depriving us of quiet conversation and some modicum privacy. The food was amateur, salty, and, in some cases tasteless. The sommelier seemed hurried and his delivery was rehearsed. We would suggest, if you want to experience a tasting menu prepared properly, try Alinea in Chicago, Hisa Franko in Slovenia, or, closer to you, Restaurant Initiale in Quebec City.

the best restaurant in the area, and one of the best in canada. if you haven't tried it, find someone you like and go. compared to others in the area who claim to be "fine dining" this place actually is at the same prices. awesome cocktail lounge to start in, then be taken care of with the best service, wine menu and food. never disappoints.

Thoroughly enjoyed another meal experience at Langdon Hall. Although butters/mayonnaise type items were delicate, previous meals were more inventive. With "fall harvest" I guess we were expecting a greater variety.

I typically never write reviews when I dine out. I feel I need to after our underwhelming brunch today. It was our 23rd anniversary today. We came for brunch with one of our daughters. The staff at the front knew that based on our booking, however our server was unaware and nothing special was done for us. We have stayed at Langdon Hall many times and have had wonderful dining experiences. We were served our first course without cutlery. One of the servers (not our main one) served our dishes to each of us incorrectly (mixed up who ordered what). The servers didn’t seem to know much about the dishes, nor did they describe them to us well when served. The quality of the food is exceptional at Langdon Hall, however our dishes today were not delicious. We expected more based on our previous amazing ones there before. We had to ask for bread and several times more water. We also poured our own wine a few times. We noticed other tables were disappointed with the service as well. We ordered wine that we love and are very familiar with. The wine was rapaciously priced (more than double the average price). We love Langdon Hall and plan to return, but today was definitely not up to par. We have stayed and dined at a wide array Relais and Chateaux as well.

The dinner and the service were outstanding. Our server, CJ was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Only disappointing aspect of the whole experience was that while the restaurant was nearly empty, the hostesses kept putting people right beside us. What’s with that? I understand if it was a busy night, but it wasn’t. And... they were even served by different waiters, so why?? The restaurant manager needs to train the hostesses better so everyone can enjoy a more relaxing time.

I have been wanting to eat at Langdon Hall ever since moving to Cambridge 13 years ago, it was well worth the wait. Great food, per service and a fabulous dining experience. I would definitely recommend Langdon Hall to anyone who would be looking to experience one of the finest dining experiences in Canada.

Having been in the hotel / restaurant industry my entire life it was a real treat to experience this restaurant and exquisite menu, I will definitely not wait another 13 years to return.

Did the prix fixe tasting menu. The wait between courses was too long, and took us out of the experience completely. Take two bites, wait 20 minutes for the next two bites. It took 3.5 hours for 8 courses. Each course was between 1 and 8 bites, with most being around 2 or 3. Dishes were mostly under-composed but gimmicky: e.g. a few pieces of watercress with some aioli to dip the leaves into, served in a stone chalice with dry ice to create fog. Sommelier just read the label to us: “This is a vintage X varietal Y from region Z. Enjoy.”

At our visit yesterday for lunch the dining room was not busy while we were there, and a corner table was free which would allow my wife and I to sit beside each other; our preferred configuration as we are both hard of hearing. The waitress told us that this vacant table, which had no 'Reserved" sign on it, was reserved for 'VIP Guests'. Instead, she seated us at the next table where we struggled to hear one another during the meal. Alas, no "VIP Guests" came during the time we were there so the table sat empty. We have been dining and staying at Langdon since the 1990's, but now that I understand that we are a lower-tier of guest, we'll be visiting less often.

Excellent overall. Only lost stars due to fellow patrons who were FaceTiming obnoxiously, and because they are considered “regular VIPs” it wasn’t addressed by staff.

Great overall experience. The appetizer, main plate and wine pairing were great. The service was outstanding!

With regards to ambiance, it always depends on who is dining. On our particular evening, it felt a bit on the posh side....the opposite of a Joe Beef or Liverpool ambiance.

I think that I would return with a larger group to do the pairing menu. The menu looked very promising...

This was a birthday dinner with class...
I took my husband here for his 50th birthday and everything about it was perfect. We have been to some high-end places before but this place beat them all. The food was incredible but what makes this experience above the rest is the service. From the time you enter the establishment, you are taken care of and made to feel very special.
The place is also very clean and well-taken care of...not tired like some other places.

Dining at Langdon Hall is truly a marvellous experience. From the food to the setting, in the garden, under the leaves of a gigantic tree gives one a sense of quiet luxury. A moment to cherish.

A very disappointing Sunday brunch. Food had no seasoning - bland at best. (Seemed to be a common complaint. Table next to us sent back their pork dish as inedible. Ordered trout and then sent that back bc it was tasteless .)
Pasta was heavy in a weird chicken broth of sorts. Burrata salad was drowned by a tasteless tomato water poured over it at serving. The burrata was very grainy and swimming in this water. Looked awful. Tasted worse .
While salt is often minimal, herbs are used to add flavour. Not so here .

Drink order never received. Coffee at end never received .
Lengthy wait times - first for a table that was being fixed for us only to be told we had been overlooked and someone else got our table.
Lengthy wait times between courses.

Staff very pleasant BUT inattentive, slow, and very forgetful about everything.

Overpriced for awful food and worse service.

Not worth the drive.

The lunch menu disappointed. I had the scallop sashimi. It was underwhelming. My husband had the torchon de foie gras, which was much better. We both had the trout, which while properly cooked had less than exciting sides. Overall, this felt like something I could have done myself, which is not saying much for one of the best restaurants in the country. I had looked forward to eating here for literally years, but I don’t expect to be back. Uninspiring food; perhaps the chef was off on Saturday? That said, the service, provided by a young Irishwoman with a sense of humour, was excellent.

Very costly for the experience. The appetizers and the main course were lukewarm at best and oversalted. The scallop ravioli which sounded great turned out to be boring lacking in any taste except salt, with the pasta being undercooked and hard.
The short rib entree was not appealing visually at all and looked like a segment of cadaver that I saw many times in my anatomy training.
I had taken my business partners family including his 8 year old daughter. She ordered Mac and Cheese off the kids menu. It was lacking in cheese and would have been fine for adults but was not designed for the unrefined palate of a young girl.
I have been to Langdon Hall many many times and this is perhaps the worst experience I’ve had.
