Steak
The Guild exemplifies a new and exciting take on the finest traditions of butchery, cookery and bar-keeping. The name is inspired by guild halls from the past, which served as a meeting places and secret societies for artists and merchants. Honouring local beef, game and fowl, and utilizing traditional cooking techniques over wood and coal, The Guild chefs are preparing a fitting homage to proud Canadian carnivores.

    I was very impressed. It’s a beautiful place. It always has availability on open table so I figured maybe there was something wrong with it - nope….It’s just massive and gorgeous. Has the coolest vibe and it a great mix of casual and high end.

    Booth where we sat was very cold - had to move 3 times. Wine we chose was out of stock. They recommended another wine which wax not what they said it was - it was served chilled which is not right! We had to get the wine changed! We ordered steaks. Steak was good but they were out of Yorkshire pudding I ordered. Pepper sauce had no pepper flavor. Would not go back.

    Service was angry, friend asked for a tequila and soda server gave him a 34 dollar shot of tequila without telling him. My wife’s food was cold. I asked for a medium well steak and received a medium rare.

    Normally we are happy with Guild but not that time. 4 adults seated by the window, it was so cold that I have to wear my coat on, I just frizzed there! Our Porterhouse steak got cold immediately and was not so great anymore (when fat is cold it's not so yammy). It seems that restaurant have issues with some windows. I personally didn't enjoy the evening. Our guests that never been in the restaurant got cold at the end too and wanted to leave but were shy to offer!

    Super disappointed in the Guild , service was a bit weird the server would just walk away in the middle talking or just do weird stuff. My apps were great , I ordered a 6oz tenderloin then they gave me 10 oz (still charged me for it ) … then my steak was suppose to med rare and was rare …. The server said sorry didn’t do anything and took my plates away before I was done my mashed potatoes. Then he offered desert at the end which I was just kinda done with everything so I said no . The bill came mind you we spent well over 300 … and still charged the 10 oz . I didn’t even eat a quarter of my steak charged me still .. didn’t take anything off or send a manger . I go here alot and I’m super upset about this experience. And I most likely won’t be going back … I’m not one to make bad reviews but do better .

    We order the jumbo prawns, the calamari, and the stake tartar to start. The steak tartare was my biggest disappointment it was extremely overseasoned, just mustard and pepper were the two main flavors present in that dish. We continue with the main dishes one gnocchi and two steak and fries, absolutely delicious and the meat cooking point was perfect, just like we requested. And not related to food the experience and the service was very good, the only thing worth mentioning was the washrooms temperature, it was way too cold.

    It’s our first time at the restaurant. The experience was overall okay. The food was great. We quite enjoyed the steak. However, after we paid, the waitress that served us gave us some attitude as she just threw the receipt on the table and walked away without even saying anything. That really made us leave with the bad taste in our mouth.
