“Amazing...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I recently visited Orillia for an overnight birthday celebration. Our dinner destination was Era 67, all I can say is amazing. We arrived early for our reservation, we were promptly offered a beverage and promised a table. Food was out of this world, flavorful, presentation everything. Great job Chef Thompson and team, keep up the good work and we will definitely see you again soon.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner here and it was great. Food was excellent (their portions were very generous) as we had their 30 dollar price fixed menu. When one of the appetizers came late, they offered us a free drink to go with it which we definitely appreciated. The servers were attentive and made us feel welcome without rushing us. Would go back for any special occasion but even for a casual meal.

“Absolutely love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Attentive and friendly staff, fascinating menu, relaxing atmosphere. And when they have the special "Flavours" menu, it is an absolute must visit. Love the apple beignets.

“5th Wedding Anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

My husband and I were fortunate enough to get Gramma to look after the kids for an evening and go out for a special dinner for a special day. We're from Barrie, but on the advice of my mother (who happened to be a chef in a past work life), we headed up to Orillia instead. Try Era 67, she told us, and we're so glad she did!!! The staff was wonderful, friendly and accomodating. The meal was amazing. As we ate our appetizers, (Crab and Bearnaise Frites Poutine, and Romaine Hearts salad) we were so focused on our food that we barely talked to each other. All we kept saying was "Gosh!! It's so novel to eat food that actually tastes like food and has flavour!!" Our entrees didn't dissapoint either. Both my husband and myself have decided that we will not get the same thing though when we have a chance to go back. There are so many other amazng choices on the menu that we would love to eat our way through them. In fact, it was so good that we ate so much we weren't able to indulge in the last peice of wedding cake I had saved for the occasion when we returned home.

We forgot our camera, so we didn't think of taking our picture, but one of the floor staff did. He even sent us the digital file. This restaurant made a milestone in our lives truly memorable. I can't thank them enough!!! THANK YOU!!!

“Better then Toronto restaurants!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We stopped by for Friday lunch on our way to Sudbury. We live in Toronto and I can honestly say this rivals a lot of the restaurants there..... And even exceeds many in both taste and service!
I had the club sandwich and a ceasar salad while my husband had the BBQ pork and cranberry flatbread with onion rings. The club sandwich was so big! I couldn't eat the whole thing! The flavours of the maple mayo and rye worked so well together! The ceasar salad was so flavorful with the warm bacon inside a parmasean blend cheese cup. The chipotle buttermilk dip was a great a compliment to the hand dipped best battered onion rings. Shannon was our server and she was so friendly and outgoing! It was a great experience to interact with her!
Any time we are passing through orillia in the future we will make a point of stopping by!
