We were staying at Hockley Valley Resort and a local friend had made reservations for the terrace at Forage for 7:30pm Friday night, due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Then the thunderstorms hit and quite literally and figuratively wash away all hopes of dining "alfresco". Undaunted the staff converted our dining choices into "take away" status, and we picked up and retreated to our friends home that was spectacular(the meal not the home-sorry Peter). We order a series of appetizers and two main courses along with the foccacia tampenade. Seafood linguine was terrific as was the Shrimp and scallop curry. Kudos to the friendly staff and Matthew and for delicious, reasonably price, expertly prepared and unforgettable meal. Many thanks. This place is a jewel and cannot recommend highly enough with words. To dine there is to die for.

The atmosphere was very friendly throughout our meal, although we lingered a little and chatted, there was never any feeling of being rushed out even though it was a Friday night. The portions are very ample and filling so be careful what you order. Had to take some home for sure. Food was of high quality and thoughtfully prepared.

As a raging foodie in Orangeville I'd say, hands down, Forage is the best restaurant in Dufferin County. The quality, consistency and over the top yumminess of food is always spot on. The staff is friendly, fast and on point. When choosing your next food excursion in Orangeville put Forage on the top of your list!

Went here after not having gone for a year or two, to have a nice dinner out with friends. It's not what I remembered. My dinner was ok but my wife's was very disappointing. Her steak was full of gristle and tough to chew throughout. And her scalloped potatoes... Sigh, they're not at all like they used to be. They used to be extremely thinly-cut and absolutely delicious. Now the potatoes are thickly-cut and the dish itself is runny. She was most looking forward to this part of her dinner but ended up with something like I can massacre at home. I assume the kitchen staff has changed because the gentleman who was the fixture of the kitchen when we used to go was not there. I begrudgingly paid the large bill, but won't again anytime soon.

Went with a friend he had the burger not as good as Superburger. One Cider one wine had ravioli and focaccia. Service was listless and untrained had to go get them to get stuff and forgot what we needed. Ravioli was supermarket pre packaged ricotta stuffed topped with jarred sauce. Long dark hair in the olive tapenade. Never again sticking with Bluebird.

Cute little restaurant with excellent service. Food was great. My husband had the Seafood Stew and I had the Ravioli. They were both great. We had Pecan pie for dessert, like no other pecan pie I have ever had, not too sweet, made from scratch. We will return.

We often try to dine here when passing through Orangeville. Make reservations at least 2 days ahead; lots of people know this place has superb food. This time we had their ravioli, crab cakes an house salad with goat cheese, pecans, blueberries. All delicious. Recipes are always innovative, with lots of sauce. Plenty of reasonably priced wines and local craft beer. It is always crowded and noisy, so be prepared for that (i.e...not a romantic atmosphere).

We ordered 2 take out meals. Both were as good as they have been when we could still eat inside the restaurant. Incredible gado gado and chicken Marsala. Very generous portions...and decadent desserts - key lime pie and chocolate mousse.

The smoked yam soup was yummy. The tomato on the seafood linguine was more broth than sauce. The scallops and shrimp were overcooked. Neither fresh black pepper or fresh parmesan were offered. The shrimp and scsllop curry was perfection - lots of flavour and colour. Servings were generous and presentation was attractive. The key lime pie was missing the limes.

While server was friendly, food was extremely slow to arrive and disappointing. In particular, butternut squash ravioli was swimming in butter and little flavour. Linguini sun-dried tomato mushroom entree was over spiced. Too bad as menu looked impressive. I don’t understand the positive reviews.

This was our first time at Forage and it was very very good. Friendly welcome at the door and lovely server. Appetizers, especially the grilled calamari were nicely presented and delicious. We tried the calves liver and the vegetarian and vegan bowl specials and everything was fresh, tasty and generously portioned. We couldn’t resist the house made desserts - so many options to choose from! Finally settled on the raspberry pie and lemon meringue pie which were both excellent. Chatted with the personable chef/owner on the way out and we are already looking forward to returning sometime soon for dinner!

What a wonderful spot. The food was fantastic and well priced. There was a good variety of food and the new vegan and healthy bowls are a great choice. The staff provided excellent service and the chef came out to chat. We highly recommend Forage.

My girlfriend and I took an impromptu getaway for one night to the lovely town of Orangeville. Our B&B host sent me some dining suggestions and urged me to reserve ASAP. We totally lucked out with the last table at 7 pm! The restaurant is in a strip plaza, so I wasn’t expecting much; however, the food was absolutely wonderful and the server truly warm and friendly! I plan to take my husband back to this foodie haven! The salad with cashew hummus and miso dressing were memorable!!!! This restaurant has a fantastic kitchen. I had the schnitzel and my friend the seafood curry—both truly delicious meals!

Most flavourful dining experience I have had in a long time. The difference between a cook and a trained chef is so obvious here. Interesting menu options served with a smile from a pleasant server. My husband and I were both impressed and put Forage at the top of our favourite restaurants list. Reasonable prices and nice decor.

Just had the calf's liver tonight from Forage take out as they are closed during this omicron explosion. This restaurant is by far and wide the best in Orangeville. Absolutely melt in your mouth dinner and the seafood curry is a close second. Go there!
