AVOID
I was excited to attend my party because I heard so many good things about the venue. However, the food was average and the service was a little disappointing... coffee wasn't served at my table and when we asked for tea they took a long time. On top of that I asked for some honey for my tea, it seemed that the server was irritated. In fact his reply was " I'm so sorry, I don't know about the organization of this restaurant because I normally don't work here" I asked the waiter who the manager was, and the waiter told me that his name was Dave, but he didn't show up! The coordinator, Liana, is pushy and young, she doesn’t have any experience about that job! Anyway I left that place before the party was done and my experience confirmed that I'm not going to have my own wedding there... Sincerely a disappointed guest.

Breathtaking Gardens & Chapel
We just had our Wedding at this beautiful venue this past October. We said our "I do's" in the charming chapel and then had our reception in The Great Hall. Stunning!! We are so very happy that we chose this venue. Breathtaking grounds that added the extra sparkle to our Wedding photos. Thank you so much to the Team at The Doctor's House for making our day unforgettable truly a dream wedding come true!

We have just booked our wedding in the new room call the Great Hall. This room is just beautiful. I fell in love with it. It has giant windows and a patio with it's own terrace and fireplace. i can't wait. I have been here for 2 weddings in 2010 and 2011. Everything was fantastic. I'm looking forward to our big day.

The Doctor's house is the NUMBER 1 on my list
The Doctor's house is the number 1 on my list and on my boyfriend`s, who is almost as picky as I am. Finding superb fine dinning is a hobby of ours, and atlas we have found it at the uber-romantic Doctor's house. The first thing I noticed when we walked in was the gorgeous interior; great lighting, exquisite decor and clean and elegant seating and tables. The wait staff were very properly dressed and welcoming. We dined here a few weeks ago so I cannot remember our waiter`s name (I believe Frank), but he was simply the best. I am very judgmental on customer service skills and knowing what you are talking about since I work in that industry, and I have never tipped a waiter more than he deserved (until now). He was the most knowledgeable staff I have ever met and helped us find the best wine I have tasted so far. We selected a French Pinot which went great with our meal. Then came the salad (mixed greens, chevre [goat] cheese, fresh berries and candied pecans; Mmmmm...). Say yes to the fresh pepper that is actually fresh unlike every other eatery. One of the top 3 salads I have had. For our main course my boyfriend decided on the fire roasted veal chop, medium rare, with Portobello mushrooms. I ordered the Grey Goose Penne, finished with a vodka rose sauce and pancetta. Absolutely delicious. I never finish my meals, except for this one.
Overall, an experience I shall hope to enjoy again. This is the restaurant that we compare to every other dining experience; 6 out of 5 stars. Exceptional.

Disasterous Lunch
Invited two friends to lunch at the restaurant to celebrate a retirement. We were the only ones in the diningroom. Most of the room had not even been set up. The wine list was over priced and limited - the "French" pinot noir was from Niagara. The lunch menu was the dinner menu. What an embarassment ... we ended up leaving and went to another place up the road - it was great!!! Will NEVER be back at the Doctor's House.

banquet hall
The gardens and chapel was beautiful and tranquil. My husband and I got the Heritage room for our wedding. It had a very rustic feel but once it is decorated, it takes your breathe away! The food at the Doctor's house was amazing. We recieved so many compliments about the food. The service was somewhat lacking and quite slow. Also, Mirella said she would be there all night to watch and ensure that things went smoothly but she was no where to be found. That was a real sore spot, I think we saw her once the whole night.

good food, terrible service
Below is an email sent to Doctors House on 30th October 2010. No response received yet......



Hi,

We had dinner at your restaurant last evening and was extremely disappointed.

The vine we ordered was not served, instead the waiter brought a vine of his choice. If it was not in stock he should have told us so and offered us the menu to choose again.
Three glasses of apple juice were ordered for the kids and that seem to have been forgotten and we had to remind again.

The starter of one guest was missed and he had to wait for his starter.

My daughter had ordered Salmon and that was missed and she had to wait for it to be cooked with the other food on the table.

I had ordered steak on the bone and instead I was served an ordinary steak. When I inquired your waiter stated as long as the food was good, thats OK. I found this extraordinary behaviour as he offered no apology.

When I went to settle the bill, the deposit of CAD 140 had not been deducted, but instead an 18% service charge added by scribbling on the bill with a pen.

Your waiter Billy took my credit card and put it through three times with authorisation obtained on all three occasions for 3 different amounts as he got the figures wrong.

We made the booking on recommendation by a British travel book and I will be writing to them about this issue, on my return to the United Kingdom. I acknowledge that the food we had was excellent, but unfortunately the quality of service was abysmal.

regards

D Ranetunge

Wedding Nightmare
One of the worst places I have ever worked! They are totally unprofessional and extremely rude. I wouldn't recommend it to any of my clients.

For someone like you in the Industry it is not wise to "bad mouth" potential clients/referrals!

Kings Feast!
We couldn't have asked for a finer dining experience, we brought our two young children with us to introduce them to the world of fine dining, and what a choice we made. From the time we entered to the time we left, absolute attention to every detail, and service, beyond anything we expected. The children were treated like Kings, And the food was superb. We will be dining there in the near future.

This place is a joke

The food is absolutely a joke and the service was pathetic.

the price for the food is overpriced and tasted like it was left over wedding food from the weekend function.

The doctors house is a joke to the food industry! Thank you for making my wedding night a nightmare!!!

The Doctor's House
We've had lunch and dinner at The Doctor's House and we are big fans of the menu, the quality of the ingredients, and the beautiful presentation of the dishes. Kudos!

Better Than Ever!!
It's been awhile since we've been to the House, so we were very happy to see the quality of the service and food have remained outstanding. Chef Guiseppe Ferraro gets our kudos for presentation and food quality. We will definitely not wait as long to return for our next lunch or dinner. Keep up the good work!

HORRIBLE...COMPLETE JOKE!!!!!
My wife and I used to consider this one of the best restaurants in the city. It has been awhile since we've been there, every meal before was fantastic and the service was amazing. Well things have changed. It became quite clear that whoever is running the place has decided to substitute quality for crap. The kitchen has no idea how to cook anything, every item brought to us was overcooked and tasteless. The "Grilled Calamari" on the menu is in fact fried - waiter confirmned it. Our steaks were horrible cuts, overcooked and the one bite I actually took tasted like a shoe. The fresh vegetables that used to come with the steaks are gone, now you get boiled carrots, greenbeans and processed mashed "potatoes" that were obviously scoopped with an icecream scooper. The entire plate resembled something I would find at a school cafeteria. We didn't touch the plate at all. After the brutal appetizers - the calamari and fake ceasar salad - we had lost our appetites. The real joke is whoever is running the place has decided to cut corners everywhere, including the wonderful staff that used to work there, yet wants to charge premium prices. Two drinks and the appetizers ended up costing me $45.00...no tip. I gave the half star foer the changes to the decor.

WHAT A SHAME!!!!!

TERRIBLE FOOD! Like a 2 star hotel.
We went for Sunday brunch and it was HORRIBLE! It was like being at a 2 star hotel restaurant. The bread they served was hard and fell apart; it was at least a day old. The brunch oddly did not serve toast nor pancakes (a staple in any brunch I have ever gone to); I had to ask for syrop because there was none to be found. The freshly sqeezed juice was all foam -terrible! I had to ask for the heat to be raised since it was freezing. An hour later, it was still cold, some in our party put on their coats. The eggs benedict were cold and the french toast very very soggy (what is more, I had to ask for these to be filled since I went to the hot plate twice and never found any). There was a small tray of fruit which dissapeared quickly and was never replenished. The pasta was gummy. The alfredo sauce compared to a frozen food item. I asked for waffles, but the cook said the machine was broken and he would need time to fix it. My knife was falling apart. This was not the calliber of brunch I expected from The Doctor's House? This was our first visit, and undoubtedly our last!!!

Not good
Steak was well done, completely overcooked. It was not even a good cut of beef, where 1/4 was fat and/or tendon/ligaments. Butternut squash was no biggie, and tiramisu was more like cake with coffee cream.
Decor was extremely nice, which made food that much more disappointing.

Amazing
The Doctor's House is beautiful. Just beautiful. Excellent food, great service, but the building is spectacular. Will keep going for a long time to come

Elegance in Kleinburg
The Doctor's House is beautiful, from the landscaping to its interior structure. Considered a historical landmark, it earned its name during the 1860's when it housed Kleinburg's many doctors. Every dining area has the touches of the old colonial architecture, but my favourite is "The Verandah".

It's a little pricey. The buffet brunches is the best deal. For $40 (adult) the selection is great. Lots of variety from salads; seafood (lobster, shrimp, calamari, mussels, salmon); cold meats (prosciutto, capicollo, smoked ham); hot items and desserts.

And while you're there, you can visit the McMichael Art Gallery, another one of Kleinburg's gem.
