I've been to Days on Front a number of times for lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed. Great service, better food and good wine list. It's worth the 15 minute drive from downtown.

Matt Day is one of Kingston's Finest Chefs, no doubt inspired by his Dad, the legendary Clark Day. A inspired menu featuring local ingredients creatively combined and artfully presented. Well done.

After 3 years away from Kingston it was great to come back to such an excellent restaurant and more importantly to see the quality of food and service are still of an exceptional level.

I had dinner with a friend at Days on Front. We were seated at not a very good table. Perhaps that reflects their attitude toward "old" guests. But, whatever. This restaurant has a short and expensive menu, and that would not a drawback if what it offered were excellent. Focusing on a few strong dishes is a plus. Unfortunately for... More

Ok. Here is my response to your review of Days on Front. I believe the first thing we should discuss is your accusation that Days on Front discriminates towards "old" guests. Let me be clear that our number one demographic is 55 plus. We cater to that age crowd and without their business we would not exist. What kind of... More

Small, local, exceptional restaurant in the West end of Kingston that would be right at home in the downtown, but thankfully isn't. One of only a couple of restaurants in this area that produces food of very high quality. Not overly kid friendly, unless they are an open minded diner. The menu us understandably small but they make note of... More

I ordered arctic char that was served over asparagus and bed of risotto. The plate was well presented and all looked good until my nose detected a rather strong fish smell. My wife seated across from me could also smell it. The fish tasted good as well as the rest of the meal. It was unfortunate the fishy smell detracted... More

Hi Stephen, I am sorry to hear that you found the arctic char to be "fishy". I can assure you this a very popular dish and sells extremely well. We would never serve fish that is old or smelly. Some fish however such as salmon, trout and arctic char have high levels of amines and omega-3 fatty acids and give... More

Days on Front is a small place but very intimate. The appetizers are flavorful. The main dishes consisted of cooked to order meat that literally fell apart and melted in your mouth. The triple chocolate cheesecake is light and is a must have. We actually spoke to the staff about having it as a wedding cake. Everything is sourced locally... More

I wanted to revisit this place after 4 years since I moved out of Kingston. The menu is too limited, so I settled for a sort of beef hoagie item. The server never asked how I wanted the beef cooked, NOR I ASSUME DID THE CHEF ASK HER. It was almost raw, so I took it all off the sandwich... More
