“The fish and chips were swimming in grease! Yuk!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Our party of four lunched at the Muse on Friday, July 18th, 2014. We were pleased with the wonderful view of the waterfall from our table overlooking the Peche River, and our servers were prompt, polite and pretty. We ordered cold draft beer pints which were promptly delivered to our table. My wife ordered the scallop plate and I requested the fish and chips. We also decided to share a plate of the duck spring rolls as an appetizer, which were delicious. However, my fish and chips were absolutely dripping in grease, which soaked through the bed of french fries on which they were perched. The breading was slipping off the fish because there was so much grease, and the french fries were inedible. The side order of kimchee (spiced cabbage) was not very good in my opinion. My wife's scallop plate contained four very small scallops with a tasteless sauce. Our bill (for just me and my wife) came to $90 Canadian including tax and tip. I can only reiterate the comment of a previous reviewer and say "avoid the fish and chips" and add swim away from the scallops as well. It is a real shame that such a beautiful restaurant with wonderful ambiance and nice servers has such a mediocre bill of fare.

Dear Rich_Debbie, Thank you for leaving your comments regarding your recent meal at the Mill, and thank you for citing your appreciation of the location and the amiable and efficient service you received. We appreciate as well your inclusion of photos showing your menu selections. It is a small point but noteworthy in that your selections were from our Heron menu, and not Muse. That said, they came from the same kitchen, and your comments will be promptly reviewed by the kitchen team so that adjustments can be made. We are unable to determine if you made your dissatisfaction known to staff at the time of your visit or if any compensation was offered as a result. Again, we regret that you were not pleased and sincerely apologize that your dining experience at the Mill did not match our guest standards.

“Pampered from Beginning to End”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I wouldn't normally use the word "pampered" for a restaurant but that's exactly how I felt. The service was excellent and we decided to treat ourselves to the Discovery Menu (7 tasting plates) selected by the chef...surprise! Not knowing what was coming next was half the fun. Yes, it was expensive but it was a wonderful and great way to celebrate or treat yourself to a night out.

“Avoid the fish and chips”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Not sure about the rest of the food, but the fish and chips we ordered were certainly substandard. The fish was dripping with grease while the fries fared no better. Included with the meal was a salty cabbage slaw. Price was reasonable, but who cares when it is practically inedible. The shrimp salad we ordered was somewhat better but nothing to rave about either. Hopefully the other items on the menu are better prepared.

Dear Carmen W., thank you for taking the time to leave us your comments. We regret very much that your choice of meal fell short of your expectations, and you are correct that regardless of price, you should have been satisfied. We are unable to determine if you made your disappointment known to your server, or if any alternative was offered. It is unusual for our cuisine to not meet a customer's approval, but when it does happen, we certainly wish to make every effort to leave you feeling more satisfied. Again, our regrets. Thank you again for letting us know. Our kitchen has been notified.
