We went to the Concordia Club on a Friday evening in June for dinner to celebrate our anniversary while visiting Kitchener. Although it was hard deciding whether to order from the menu or have the buffet, we both opted for the buffet and enjoyed everything we had from the wide variety of food, which included salads, main course items (roast...

The German food was fantastic which gets it the 4 stars. However, as per every German restaurant I've ever been to - the ambience leaves much to be desired. Hard back chairs, museum like quiet, dark underground room....You don't go here for the atmosphere unless it's during the live entertainment (which we missed). Our waitress was very friendly.

A reasonable price for the evening buffet, which is of course as much as you can eat. The food was ok, nothing special and the schnitzels were a bit dry. Maybe the huge pile of them has been waiting in the hot container for too long. I suppose this is probably the downside of not ordering a meal direct from... More

Went to the Concordia Club for a reunion luncheon with the girls I attended grade school with - 40 odd years later! Food was good, ambiance was good. You can have a conversation in this place without shouting. Service was excellent and the staff let us sit and chat for hours without rushing us. Ample parking and lovely grounds.

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.
