Best In Guelph

Having been 'in the industry' for a few decades, I'm a bit of a tough cookie as far as liking a place. There are two restaurants I will eat at in Guelph, and this is one of them. Delicious, quality food served in generous portions at reasonable prices!! Where do you ever find THAT anymore... read more

Waited 45 minutes to get food on the table and then my dinner was not what I ordered. Server took it back with a comment that it would be 20 minutes to get my order remade. Pork Tenderloin arrived looking sad and anaemic. Worst presentation ever. Cut into it and realized that the cook had rushed the order and decided... More

Half the menu on line was not available what we wanted was no longer available. The staff where great but the food was not. It was my sons birthday and not even a happy birthday.

The food was very good however, the service was below par. Also the restaurant was not very busy yet it took forever for our food to arrive.

Oh the flavour! You know that feeling that your food is missing something? You wont have that feeling at Atmosphere! The food was spot on, could not have been more perfect. We ordered the Bruschetta Plate and the Butchers Block, they were perfect for sharing with a nice assortment of flavours. Our son had the soup of the day, a... More

Too early for dinner, so we stopped for drinks. Had two enormous and delicious Mojitos each. The world became a better place.

Had lunch at Atmosphere, and liked it so much we returned for dinner the next night. The food is primarily local, very fresh and well prepared. Lots of gluten-free options. We enjoyed the Club Sandwich on gluten-free, the pear salad and then for dinner the Beef Bourguignon [also gluten-free!]. Be sure to leave room for dessert: lots of cheesecakes [New... More

Dined here with friends recently. Everyone ordered something different. Everyone very much enjoyed their meals. Pizza has a very crispy crust (exactly how I prefer it!) I ordered the Beef Bourguignon. Delicious!!!!! Wait staff very knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients. Very attentive without hovering. Desserts (made in-house) were devoured and pronounced delectable. Good quantity of food. Prices are... More

Very nice "atmosphere" indeed. Food is obviously freshly prepared. Servers attentive and friendly. A definite must when you're in downtown Guelph.

We started off with absinthe; never had it before. What a shock! It was bright blue, and came with a slotted spoon and a sugar cube. The waiter told us to dip the sugar cube into the absinthe, then he lit it on fire and told us to let it caramelise for about a minute before dropping it into the... More
