“Awesome”

This is one of the better restaurants that I have eaten in. I've eaten there many times now and there is always a great selection and it's always fresh and new. I would recommend to anyone.

“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

What an excellent meal! Right from the friendly greeting at the door until we left the atmosphere was perfect. I was there with a girlfriend for an annual get together we do at Christmas, this was our first visit to era 67. The appetizer were perfect I am in love with chef Ian's scallops and my friend has a new passion for brie, we both had a steak dinner that was cooked to perfection, I also had the Crab and Lobster homemade béarnaise sauce and she had the Trio of Mushroom and Maple Sticky Onion... both were exquisite! I could rave for hours but the food will do that enough on it's own! Small town charm with a big city sophistication! Excellent job Era 67

“Dissapointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

My husband and I went to Era 67 last night. It was our third time there. Great food, great atmosphere...which brought us back. Made a point of making a reservation and was able to get a table at 5 pm. The restaurant was basically empty when we arrived.
We ordered our wine and entrees. As soon as we were finished eating the entrees, the waiter arrived and asked if we would like to order something else...to which I replied that we probably would but just wanted to take a moment. He replied "just know that this table has another reservation at 7pm".
I was a little taken aback and felt a little insulted. The main purpose for choosing this restaurant was to enjoy the food, the wine and to take our time.
We did order a steak and had decided on having dessert and coffee afterwards.
The waiter came to our table and cleared our plates and returned within minutes with, what we thought was, the dessert menu. NO...not the dessert menu. It was the bill.
I looked at him and said "we had planned on having coffee and dessert" to which he answered "you don't have time"!!!!
Honestly...I was angry. If I wanted a drive-thru meal, I would have gone to McDonald's.
If a restaurant of this caliber wants you, in and out of there, within a certain time frame then they should specify this at the time of the reservation.
Very disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Lili,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write about your experience. I am extremely apologetic for the outcome of your evening. For the past couple weeks prior to our Friday and Saturday dinner services we have been completely booked solid for a multitude of guest Christmas parties happening here. Even though you might not see customers sitting in the restaurant at 5 pm typically those tables will be reserved for either a 6 pm, 6:30 pm or 7 pm reservation.
To say the least, it has been a little hectic around this small restaurant over the holiday season.
In any event, I take full ownership for this experience as I believe I took your reservation the afternoon prior, on the Friday, and I recall saying we only had 5:00 pm or 9:30 pm available as those were the only two time slots we had open throughout the week.
I had been telling multiple guests that if arriving at 5 pm the table would only be available until 7 pm as we had a party booked at that time.
We are normally very diligent about communicating this with our customers at all times but I must have mentioned the 5 pm and 9:30 pm time slot however forgot to mention the 2 hour allotted time at the table.
Typically this would never happen at our restaurant, only during Christmas holiday season and special food festival events like Barrielicious and Flavours of Lake Country where it gets very busy with multiple turnovers and we now try to be as communicative as possible.
My sincerest apologies for forgetting that very important detail when booking, I am quite shocked myself.
In addition, I have spoken to all of my staff and the delivery of the message will be certainly improved pertaining to time restraints.
Please feel free to email me direct with any other additional questions or comments.
We would love to have you return and this time dessert is on me.
Live, Love, Laugh & Eat!

Have a very safe and happy holiday season.

“Classy and Intimate”

Celebrated my birthday last night. My husband had never been to Era 67 and he was very
impressed. The Menu is wonderful. The presentation of our meal was a delight. Had to take
photos as it was beautifully done. We ordered the steak and it was awesome. No wonder
you are my favorite restaurant in Orillia.
