So, we stayed at Taboo for 2 nights for our anniversary. The food at the restaurant was delicious. The service was not so good. I'm not generally a complainer, I'm the person who tips regardless of service just because I feel obligated to do so. However, I have to say I can't give a pass to the service we received during our stay here. We witnessed staff swearing and complaining about co-workers and feeling overwhelmed. This is not a very relaxing environment especially given the cost of staying at this resort! It is very unfortunate because the food is actually very good!!!!

A great boat ride destination for lunch on the beautiful patio overlooking Lake Muskoka. Lunch menu was excellent.

Attended the Boat House restaurant at Taboo Resort on two occasions in June 2017. The first was for dinner with four couples for a birthday. The food was good but nothing spectacular. The service was average at best. We waited a long time for our meals (over 90 minutes) which we were advised in advance we would have to wait because we arrived shortly after a large group. We requested some bread as we had waited so long and eventually were served sandwich bread. We were all drinking wine and ordered quite a few bottles of wine. One would expect that the wine should be served and not the bottles simply put in he middle of the table. If you are going to charge prices that are indicative of finer dining I expect the quality and service too.

Our second time was for breakfast we ordered the bacon-wrapped asparagus with poached eggs. It was good but not worth the price. We had far better quality and price when we went to town for breakfast at a restaurant on the main strip.

Great that Taboo is no longer leasing out their restaurant and now has a skilled, caring chef Rachel Hobbs who can bring on some great tastes!
This was the first of their pairing events - this time with Sawdust City Brewery and Tawse Winery. It was well thought out and lots of fun in an intimate setting.

This is the first time back at Taboo in a few years and we went as a family for Mother's Day. We had a fabulous time, the food was amazing and fresh and the staff were wonderful. We were ever so happy to see Chef Rachel in charge and creating amazing dishes for us try. Everything was delicious and her Chai Creme Brulet was absolutely georgous. Then you get the view of the lake and the islands, doesn't get better than that! See you soon!
