We were able to get a table even though the restaurant was fully booked. The manager was able to finesse the foster just enough to accommodate two more patrons, provided we ate a little earlier than planned. The menu was full of interesting choices. The service was top notch with a very attentive and friendly waitress who provided us with... More

My husband and I had dinner there last night. The staff were super friendly and atmosphere quite pretty. Norma Jean was so kind, helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The food was so flavourful. Seemed the chef took great care in his creations. Very high end. We will be going back very soon because the experience was so great.... More

I'd love to tell you about the food, atmosphere and service, but I unfortunetly wouldn't know. Although I've heard it's good. My wife and I stopped in durring Barrieliscious and they were full. OK, I get we had no reservations but there were lots of empty tables visable, plus space at the bar. The hostess was quite nice but when... More

The Barrielicious promotion is a fixed price three course dinner. Three of the four of us ordered the Whitefish and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a good deal but it is only on for a couple of weeks.

Norma Jean and all the staff at the Grape and Olive always make us feel welcome when we go. This is our go-to place when we have visitors from out of town for Sunday Brunch (which gets them on their way before the 400 is a parking lot). Steaks, lamb, their amazing soup and ask Ms. Bond for a Chocolate... More

If you are looking for a special brunch, have the Sunday Brunch Buffet at the Grape and Olive at the Mariposa Inn in Orillia. On our most recent visit, the roast beef was succulent and juicy, the potatoes were cooked to perfection and the broccoli and carrots were el dente, a sign that care had been taken to ensure they...

Please note: this is a supplementary review from the one June of 2016. We decided to come to this restaurant because it was the only one in town that made gnocchi.

Hello HoneymoonandCigars, I sincerely apologize you weren't happy with the sauce on your gnocchi, which Chef refers to as a Rustic Chunky Marinara, rather than an actual sauce.

We were part of a group and we agreed the waitstaff was courteous, friendly and efficient. The prime rib roast and Yorkshire pudding yummy. There is a varied menu with lots of choices and price points. This restaurant offers a sunday brunch.
