“A local favourite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Garrison House was recommended to us by our B&B hosts and we were not disappointed. It is clearly a local favourite and does a bustling business. We were very pleased with the quality of our food and the service. We would go back.

“Good value and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

I have been twice and the food was very good and well priced-most entrees under $20 which is great for the area. All the dishes the people we were with had were excellent.
The ambience is great and this restaurant is a great option in the area.
the only thing that could be improved is the music.

“Getting exactly what you want in our own back yard!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

From the greeting at the door and also from the kitchen, you know you are in a place where you will be well taken care of. Leigh and David have created a culture of service and attention to culinary detail bar none. From the wonderful decor, earthy tones and comforting natural elements to the marvelous, winterized patio you feel truly like you are in wine country, seconds from where the magic happens on the vine. Not to mention a true beer lover’s paradise with many selections am sure hand picked from the knowing palate of Leigh and David and their team. When ever we need a "sure thing" as vegans and with allergies we can be sure our meal here will be nothing short of tremendous. David and the hand picked Chefs went out of their way to create a special appetizer and dessert for us along with a delicious tofu dish that was out of this world with exotic tastes that take you miles away but really in our own back yard! Thanks for the wonderful meal, service, attention and choice of drinks that made us feel like we were on vacation..Without the passport and luggage. A quick note, I truly loved when I spoke to Leigh and asked if we needed reservations and her answer was ..We would not need reservations to visit at home so just head in when ready (awesome)...one more tip...we experience the same level of care and awesome food when visiting their other location in Fonthill - Zest!

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Food was excellent. Try the Vij's special chicken curry. I hate eating Indian food in restaurants, but this one really stood out and we went back the next day for it! They have a special creme brulee daily, and we had the pleasure of trying the dulce de leche - yummmmmmmy!

Not sure about the stark decor.

“Pleasant surprise NOT expensive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Not sure the review I just read was at the same restaurant because the quality of the food for the price WAS incredible. Best salmon I have ever had a restaurant (I cook it all the time with many variations this was perfectly cooked!!) Here is a sample of the mains we had 2 from this list:

Grilled Organic Salmon Filet 18.99
Tomato vinaigrette, roasted cauliflower and shallot, quinoa with pinenuts

Organic Turkey Burger 14.99
Tequila BBQ sauce, guacamole, melty brie, tavern chips or salad greens

Vij’s Family Chicken Curry 16.99
Cumin basmati rice and crisp poppadum

Alberta Flat Iron Steak 19.99
Smoked paprika, shallot butter, Tavern chips

Hope this helps people , the draft pint was a whopping 5.85, very perfectly priced if you ask me for a pint of local craft beer that was so good.
We are definitely coming back here and will recommend it others here in Toronto where we live

This place is up and coming man, we went on a Sunday night and the place became packed quickly, maybe it is just hard to predict the flow of arrivals as the one reviewr wrote from Toronto.
