Definitely worth booking dinner for the ambiance. The food ranged from excellent (tomato salad and lemon dachoise dessert) to fair for the pickerel and veal.

This was our first in-restaurant dining experience during COVID-19, and it was a wonderful evening - from the warmth of the reception, the thoughtfulness of the serving staff, the awesome food and wine pairings, to the warm embrace of the room, it was truly a special And memorable evening.
We will be back!

The food was very good. The service also was good. But it was very expensive, even compared to Toronto restaurants. The music was awful. It was a poor version of smooth jazz, whch in turn, is a poor version of real jazz.

Just before we left to go to the restaurant, we saw quite a bit of negativity on the reviews. We went with an open mind. Our experience was fantastic. Service was professional, knowledgeable and prompt.
We did the 5 course with local wine match up..and both the cuisine and wine pairing were great. Octopus, Gnocchi and Duck, followed by a very large cheese plate and refreshing dessert.
Tables in the wine cellar were properly spaced and the ambiance was perfect. Our experience was excellent.

We had an amazing evening at the Restaurant at Merrill House, thanks primarily to our waiter/sommelier Thierry, whose wine pairings were simply magical. Thierry's exceptional knowledge of both local and import wines was truly masterful, and his energy and passion for food and wine permeated the atmosphere and made our experience even more wonderful. Thanks to all for a memorable evening.

Had extremely high hope for this dining experience and was sadden very quickly with the main course.
Took the daily dish and it was very blend, lacked flavours, felt we were eating at grandma’s house. For a restaurant with so many great reviews we were expecting an outstanding meal.
The vegetables felt like they were frozen, tasteless and over cooked, nothing special, unfortunately.
Amazing service the location is prime and very trendy but the menu needs to be revised for more punches of flavours, especially at this price.
Actually very expensive for this level of cuisine.
Even after telling our waitress of our disappointment, nothing was offered to us to try to salvage the evening. Really too bad. Great selection of wine however, we were told the chef has been there for 14 years, unfortunately many one too many years. I’m really saddened to write this but people need to wake up in this Covid era and really step it up- even more so in restaurants!

Great ambience. Great wines. Fantastic menu. Only problem is the chef butchers it. Just awful. We had dinner there for our 25th wedding anniversary. It really looked like it was a perfect place to have a romantic dinner. Everything was overcooked or burnt or just lacking seasoning and flavour. Chewy octopus. Waxy fois Gras. Salmon steamed or poached to death. Pretty expensive and you can tell the servers know because they’re a little sheepish.

The food was really good. However the service was very poor. We had the wine pairings with each service and no info was provided on why the wine we were served went well with our food. The waitress was not friendly and seamed like we were being served by a robot. Also the time between courses was extensive. For the money we paid I expected first class service and it was not. I would not go back or recommend.

I want to be understanding and generous given the challenges of COVID for restaurants but Merrill House simply doesn’t deliver the food or experience to merit the price. The appetizers and desserts were above average but the mains disappointed and were unmemorable. The veal was tough and my husband’s meal was served so cooled that it needed to be reheated.

We ordered the wine pairing menu and the choices were good but think we would have saved money if we had simply ordered the same wines by the glass. Also our wines accompanying the main course were not served until well after our meals had arrived.

The $90 cost for 3 course is way too much for the food and experience offered. Given the rating it gets on review sites, and our expectations for a special evening it left us feeling a bit scammed.

There were two seatings for dinner , understandable during covid times in order to manage. However we arrived at 8:25 pm for our seating , no directions on who to see or where and headed inside. They advised our table was running late and to sit back upstairs outside and they would bring us a glass of wine in the meeting- a nice gesture . There were two seating areas with one taken by a group , who had also taken all the seating cushions from our area. Not the restaurants fault , nor the waiter who immediately fought them off for our pillows. Half an hour later we sat down, back inside and down the stairs again, and although there were regular tables inside - they sat us at a high top on the outer area. Our friend has a cane and physical concerns. We sat for another twenty minutes and the waitress came to ask what we wanted- no water, drink order, bread in meantime. We asked for the menu and she’s said “oh didn’t someone tell you it’s on line and to use the QR code? “. Ten minutes later she came back for the order . For wine , we ordered a Pinot noir and the smallest glasses in the house arrived- when asked the waiter mentioned they “certainly have Pinot glasses but they’re all in the wash “, and then went back to find them. At 9:30 pm we received our first course.
At 10 pm they slid the doors between our area and the main house closed as “the last people inside are freezing from the draft”- our table and two others were shivering outside. They then closed the walls on ours and warmed us up . Our food was tasty when we finally received it - the “ouefs meurette “ had been highly recommended and worth the wait. The foie gras torchon with brioche was also lovely. Next course , we had gnocchi and the field salads, and finally the veal and spaetzle , and one having the rack of lamb . All were “nice”, but the value wasn’t there- this $$$$.
All in all we were excited to be here , and the one “fancy” dinner- but sadly disappointing .

Reserved a month in advance with a special request for our anniversary. We were not in the main house but rather in the outside extension.
We order some wine as the Sommelier suggestions on the menu.....the one is not available. I made another selection, the wine was delivered to our table but not opened for at least another 10 minutes even though the 1st course was served. The wine was really good.
The one of the main course (Lamb) was very greasy as well as the vegetables. The veal was very good and the portion was good.

I wouldn't recommend the restaurant for a few reasons: 1) the server was not very attentive 2) the $90 price for a three course meal didn't live up to the expectations.
3) The special request for our anniversary was completely ignored .
We traveled on a continuous basis and based on our experience at other locations, this restaurant is overpriced. The three courses meal should be priced at around $65 not $90.
I would recommend eating at the Blumen restaurant instead. The food, service and ambiance is much better

The food is delicious, French inspired with a Canadian twist. Service was quick and smooth. However there isn’t much ambiance. No music not much people and no view. You are sitting in a basement converted to a restaurant and cellar. Overall worth it because of how delicious the food is.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your dining experience and our French/Canadian cuisine! Currently the province limits the number of tables we can have in our wine cellar to three at a time due to COVID-19 restrictions. We hope to see you again soon!

We were really looking forward to eating at the Merrill as my parents had been several years ago and raved about it. Tonight, however, was disappointing (for our entire group of 4, which included my parents). The dining room lacks ambiance, the service was slow (even with reduced numbers due to COVID-19), no a la carte options were available (only a tasting menu at $90 for 3 courses), and we chose wine pairing for $55. My mother chose a red wine at $19 a glass. The waitress returned and told her she no longer had that bottle by the glass and offered her a similar wine by the glass - what she failed to mention was that the wine was $30/glass and not $19/glass. For the wine pairing, she didn't show us the wines or let us taste them before settling on one. In my experience at higher-end restaurants, the client is always shown the bottle and given a taste before accepting a wine. Dinner for 4 cost us $700. Nothing wowed me from the ricotta gnocchi to the veal to the hazelnut dessert. Sadly, I will not return to the Merrill Inn.

Lovely food, we had a 4 course dinner with wine pairing. Everything was great, fois gras, rack of lamb, veal, great dessert as was the wine, mixed from PEC and international. I would highly recommend this restaurant. They have lots of different rooms which is good for social distancing. Certainly a fine dining restaurant
