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!

Besides the snitzel, everything was poor. Everything was overcooked. even the typical german things was a low quality, like sauerkraut, gravy, potatoes, desserts, etc tasted awful. There was a wedding and this was the reason that we had to wait 1.5 hours for our food. Poor kitchen. And the service was amateurish, rushing around because of whatever reason. Except for... More

I enjoyed the schnitzel with paprika sauce. My husband enjoyed his with mushroom sauce. The vegetables were cooked well. The disappointing aspect of the meal was the potatoes. Presentation-wise and taste-wise it was ok. We like the Sunday brunch better.

Great buffet and also all single plate entrees. Typical German food, delicious schnitzels prepared whichever way!! Great European beer too! Very pleasant staff! I go there with my best friends to celebrate our B-Days, or just to catch up on gossip when we return from our travels and manage to be home at the same time. I'm looking forward my... More

Concordia Club is well known for its Oktoberfest festival. What people don’t necessarily know is that they have excellent food for lunch and dinner. Great German food with always awesome service.

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.

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
