Wine portion was 6 or 9 once. (The night before we had 5 or 8 once ). Desserts were so good. Wonderful place for a... More

My two young friends and I enjoyed an absolutely exquisite meal at Nathaniel's Restaurant. Our server kept our water glasses filled, and even showed us how to fold napkins in the perfect Nathaniel's way. It was a special afternoon for us, and we loved being pampered.

This was the first time my wife and I have had dinner here and we were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and very attentive. The food was excellent with very generous portions. The restaurant is nicely decorated, clean and relaxing. We will go again and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Had dinner on August 27 celebrating our anniversary. Nathaniel's should be the No 1 restaurant in Owen Sound as dinner was fabulous. Wine, entree, dessert and service was first class.

We found this restaurant and decided to try it out. A very good choice. Our waiter was very knowledgable and the food was good. A quiet place to dine. This town is very empty but the food places are good. There is another place on the same block just as good.

We dined there twice during our 4 day stay in Owen Sound. Jeff the waiter was super attentive giving us good advice on what to eat. We loved the mussels and the second day they had roast beef as special. The meal was cooked liked we ordered and was delicious the restaurant is nicely decorated and the ambiance very good.
