We were greeted by Ange, she is very friendly and accomodating. We were taken care of by Brooklyn. Food was A1. We had tomahawk. Just wondering thats a $170 main course and so good but we need to pay the condiments that we need like...the steak sauce and horseradish. For a $300 bill they cant even comp the $13 bday cake???More

This is second time I’ve been to sawmill for dinner. The staff is very good! The steak, for the second time, was boring. Underwhelming taste. I wouldn’t recommend this for a steak night dinner.

Took the neighbours out for one last dinner before the third lockdown started... food was delicious, packed with a lot of flavour. Their prime rib is always a big hit with us. Customer service was great and the staff were very friendly and attentive even...though the majority of them knew they were being laid off the next day. Will definitely be supporting this business again once restaurants can open again!More

We have often celebrated our birthday and anniversaries here with ourselves and others! Our server Jojo gave us no welcome or any upbeat tone during our meal! My husband mentioned it was my birthday she couldn’t even wish me a happy birthday! The restaurant offered...nothing to make me feel special! We wanted to order a special drink and none was offered! The very worst service in years worldwide! We certainly never left with the warm fuzzy feeling that our birthday celebration was welcomed at their restaurant! Birthday aside the server was cold and unwelcoming... not even a thank you for coming as is customary on many bills today! Would not recommend ever again. Very disappointed!More

Ordered the ribeye steak very disappointed. There was no flavour to the steak. I ordered horseradish which on a good steak I would never do. The horseradish added some flavour to steak. They also don’t offer baked potatoes due to Covid??? I understand they can’t...bring out there thing with the potato toppings. But, can’t they put on in kitchen or bring out toppings in small containers? Will go to the Keg next time for a great ribeye steak.More

Had a date night out with the hubby. Service was great and food was amazing. Started with stuffed mushrooms, calamari and a Bellini. Main course was ribeye with a lobster tail, and finished it off with creme brûlée. It was a perfect evening!

We went for Brunch around 10:30 and were seated immediately. The food was hot and fresh and well presented. Our omlets were cooked quickly and were delicious!

Fabulous meal, great atmosphere! We had the bacon wrapped scallops to share, and I had the black and blue ceasar salad. Perfectly cooked. Only thing that I wasn't too happy with was the lettuce was uncut. It looked like it had just had the outer...layers removed, washed and then placed directly on the plate. I didn't need to be the one cutting up my entire salad. I just want to use my steak knife to cut the steak!More

Went for the Prime Rib and wasn’t disappointed. All our meals were presented reasonably quickly considering the restaurant was very busy. This is not inexpensive but I felt the meal was fair at the price.

Had heard great stuff about this place so decided to try it out. The wife and I and another couple and their daughter. We were seated in the dining room. It was a Friday night 7:30pm. Wasn’t very busy. Maybe 4 other tables. We got...our menus and ordered drinks and appetizers and our main courses. 35 minutes later our drinks finally arrived with our appetizers.... wow. 35 mins to get a drink ?? We had escargot which were on a plate of sauce just strewn about with mushrooms chewier than the snails. We waited another half hour for our mains. It’s now 8:30pm and our dishes come out cold. My steak was overcooked. The wife’s undercooked and cold. Our friends med rare prime rib was already dry on top. Not glistening not juicey. She cut into it and not an ounce of juice on the plate. It must have bled out before being served and died under a heat lamp. They forgot her lobster tail and when it came out was damn near raw. Inedible. During our whole experience we saw other patrons complaining and even leaving. To top it off our waitress NOT ONCE asked if we needed anything didn’t ask to refresh drinks nothing throughout the evening. . When we complained to her and called her out about everything she said sorry were slammed .... How? Most had left dissatisfied already. We asked for the manager who was very polite and apologetic. He said they weren’t slammed and no idea why everything went as it did. We explained our terrible service and meals and he took 50% off the bill. Thanks for that but we will NEVER be back. After all the positive reviews where did we go wrong ....More
