Hosted a work lunch at Dinkel',s which is a regular occurrence. The service is terrific; the ambiance is special; the specials are always a hit. Easily accommodated a few extra guests and brought the food out super quick. No one lacked for anything. The savoury food and the terrific servers will have us planning our next meeting there

The service is generally solicitous and quick. The food is always fresh and cooked correctly. The menu is traditional French, Swiss Italian and English. The surroundings provide the opportunity for quiet, private conversation

We went for a business lunch to Dinkel's and had the opportunity to sit outside at backpatio. The lunch menu was from Paulo's next door. We ordered the Pesto PIzza with some salad and we enjoyed it very much.

We celebrated a special anniversary with family. We had a private room and wonderful service. I had the salmon special with grilled vegetables. It was excellent. I notified the server that I was celiac and he assured me that the kitchen staff would be notified that my meal had to be kept separate and not in any contact with gluten/flour.... More

It is a very quaint restaurant, but it was a bit hot. The terrace was being used by a group and the doors were closed (I had been advised of that when I phoned to inquire), the staff was very nice and the salmon was excellent. Highly recommended!

We went here for a treat on our Anniversary, what a mistake. I should have read the other reviews!!! We were told before ordering that the ONLY choice for starch was scalloped potatoes, we had a reservation you would think they could have at least boiled a couple of potatoes and had 2 baked in the oven for more choice,...

Whatever reputation Dinkle's had, it's gone. We've eaten there several times only to walk away feeling that we've paid for an over rated meal. Bland veggies, okay main & okay desserts. Our last visit in 2015 is definitely our last. Capers or Earl & Angelos wins hands down.

This restaurant has a great reputation in the community. It has nice decor and friendly people. My last visit wasn't great. The food was ok and the service lacked. This is not a place I would usually go and would prefer Paulo's next door.

I was there last month when one of my friends celebrated job promotion and there were 15 of us. The guy who was serving us was horrible; slow, forgetful, trying to be funny? The food was disgusting. The bill for that table was more than $500, but they asked us to leave at 9:30 although the restaurant is officially closing... More

Dinkel's has an incredible patio. When the weather is nice - you HAVE to lunch/dine here. You'll be swept away to Europe (or at least Kingston). Food is simple but good. It used to be a lot better, but the focus seems to have blurred a little. Great service.
