Octoberfest Rocks at Concordia!

This is THE place to go for Oktoberfest in Ontario. Amazing bands, authentic food and cultural dancers. The only problem is that it does not last long enough!

Totally enjoyed the buffet, and based on the full house, others do too! Reservations recommended, but not necessary.

Always a favorite two for one Thursday schnitzel dinner. We have been many times and will make it a tradition to go back again and again! Highly recommend this hidden gem for authentic German fare.

So I wanted traditional German food. The place is not centrally located but had ample parking and was warm and welcoming. The schnitzel and strudel was nice. We also had the bread pudding which tasted nice too. Service was nice and food tasted good and portions were good. The atmosphere was nice live music. Just one thing there were no... More

Our group of four tried the Concordia last night for their buffet. 3 of us are of Germany heritage so are very familiar with good German cuisine, they don't come close! The schnitzel was very dry, the mashed potatoes were from a box and the desserts were mostly from McCann, the rice pudding was even dry. The only thing that... More

Schnitzel on a bun better and bigger at the Kriskringle Market than at Concordia served on a plate. Service slow and part of order forgotten and brought toward end of the meal. There is a serious lacking in making a great German gravey to go with schnitzel, a key component for great schnitzel, along with thiness and tenderness. Great beer... More

By far the best chicken fingers I've had anywhere!!! If someone in your group isn't fond of Schnitzel, Saurbraten, Sausage, or other typical German food, have no fear, there are other items on the menu too!

Attended a Wed night buffet at Concordia Club. Definitely value for the dollar (could say the same thing about an amazing Sunday Brunch as couple months ago- that's what impressed a return visit). We were there the day before Octoberfest started so the place was decorated and ready: but, the chefs weren't distracted with anticipation. They did an awesome job... More
