In the past I would often come here for lunch and have felt satisfied enough to come back, on occasion my husband and I would also have date nights here because we loved the food and service. But lately I have noticed a steady decline in the quality of food, the customer service, and not surprisingly the number of customers.... More

Family dinner with the two Laurier University students who were dying for their parents to take them for a nice dinner - just on a whim stopped here (unknown to us) and had a wonderful time. Really nicely done inside - love the glass enclosed wine rack in the centre of the room. We all had something different for the... More

I had their burger for business lunch, the burger bun was toasted too long and the bun was falling apart after each bite. The appetizers bread was cold, the desert felt like store bought frozen desert. I don't think it is worth the money. The burger itself and fries tasted fine.

We gathered in Waterloo for a holiday meal with friends. We left Waterloo after an experience that was WILDly epicurean with CRAFTed deliciousness. From the coat check personal touch (have incorporated the number washers in our own front hall closet!) to the grace of the servers getting us seated. Then an unexpected pleasantry, the amuse bouche. A fun blend of... More

Went with my wife for dinner and had the steak. Great tasting and great service from the staff. Way better than the keg for food and ambiance. Will be going back soon. Both of us had steaks and a drink plus dessert (wow fantastic--try the smores dessert ) for under $100.

Great place to have a great meal - super setting, excellent service and wonderfully scrumptious food. Main dining room is a great choice with its welcoming fireplace in the colder weather as well as a great atmosphere all year round. Super patio with umbrellas - for sun or rain, fire pits for those cooler evenings.

This is a truly horrible restaurant if you want anything other than steak. The food is unimaginative, poorly presented, and bad tasting. It is also ridiculously overpriced honestly offends me that it has remained in business for as long as it has.

I have been away traveling for quite some time, and Wildcraft was top of my list to return to asap. I usually get the Cashew chicken, but this time my boyfriend and I shared the Seared Ahi Tuna and the Crusted Salmon. Wow. Just amazing! Both has such different tastes but so amazingly matched with the vegetables/ greens that were... More

This restaurant does it right. From the moment we entered we felt like the special guests we were. The atmosphere is romantic. The wait staff are attentive. The food was fantastic. Another nice aspect was the dress. There were some people dressed "to the nines" some in jeans and most in business casual. We will be back.
