Visited there with another couple. Waited 5-10 min with no hostess to greet us. Food was average for the high price tag. Service was ok and had to wait forever for check pickup. Atmosphere was very nice and romantic. Hoped for more in food flavour for the price paid. Don't think we will return.

enjoyed a great meal by the fireplace. Highley recommend the signature app. crabcakes and the seafood sampler. My wife had the stuffed cornish hen, so good that is what she had last time we were there. I had the surf and turf cooked to perfection. Most don't know about their corkage service for $25, bring your own nice bottle of... More

Great staff, and well prepared food. We usually eat at the Cannery when staying at the Pillar and Post, especially in winter. The hotel usually offers a three course dinner package with your stay for about $60 cdn. One thing to note, you are not presented with a 'special menu' with your package. You oder whatever you want off the... More

enjoyed a fantastic dinner by the fireplace!. Both my wife and myself enjoyed a very tasty steak dinner. We had been told that their steaks were great - and they were. Great romantic setting as well.

We were invited by another couple to spend New Year's Eve at the P&P and have dinner (early sitting) in the Cannery Restaurant. We dine out a LOT, both in Oakville and abroad, and unfortunately the food did not even come close to expectations for most of us. The soup (both the lobster bisque and the chicken soup) were cold...

Went for dinner just after Christmas and really enjoyed the festively decorated atmosphere. The wait staff were great and made you feel right at home. They smiled and were very professional, Kassie was wonderful. My wife started with the Simple Greens salad and really enjoyed the Apricot Vinaigrette. I had the Romaine Salad and found the Buttermilk dressing just excellent.... More

Food was fantastic, the server didn't seem to be knowledgeable about the dishes and food/wine which could go with the food.

Stayed at Pillar & Post. Have dinner here on Christmas Day. Service was good. Food was excellent. They just finished with a large party gathering but food serving time was still at par. The waitress was very attentive and check on us a few times to let us know the status of our food. I think it may be it... More

OK the good news. Our server Derek was spot on: he was there when we needed him and very helpful with suggestions for local wines. The ambience was pleasant enough to be sure although the holiday decorations seemed a bit over-the-top (a subjective call I must admit). The food, however, was inconsistent. We had the prawns (actually medium-sized shrimp) for... More

Lovely food, great location, excellent service. Love the old charm of this place. What is missing is friendly front desk staff.
