Because we had two children with us we booked a table for 5:30 pm. There were no other patrons in the restaurant. There were two waiters, but we waited half an hour for water and menus. This was just the beginning to a dining fiasco. We then waited two and a half hours for the main course. By the time... More

What an outstanding experience! We were a group of five and we could not have asked for a better meal presented by nothing short of an outstanding server. The appetizers, both the spring rolls as well as the calamari were enticing and did not overpowering. The two suits on the menu, minestrone and mushroom were tasteful and again, not overpowering....

Guy, this is a serious food experience. The Algonquin College students showcase the art of culinary here. The environment is modern and stylish. The staff students were nice and attentive. The girl staff even offered to take a family photo for us. The food was impressively well prepared and presented. Overall, we had an awesome wonderful meal.

The food variety is always a pleasant surprise, there is always something new on the menu of the day. The food is always well prepared, presented and served. Bear in mind, there are professionals in the making (students) who are serving, so sometimes you may have a bit nervous server or a shaky hand trying to serve you. But they... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. We had dinner here last Saturday. The place was not very busy which was great. Food was great and the service was fine.

This is a teaching restaurant, and they do events, so it's important to check their schedule and make reservation before you go. Normally their food is great. You pay a fixed fare for a 4-couse-meal for dinner or 3-coure-meal for lunch. The cost is inexpensive for what you get, and the menu changes all the time. You can also ask... More

Thought we would try a restaurant that was new to us. We chose Restaurant International - part of the Algonquin College food services programme. There is a free car parking lot immediately in front of the restaurant's entrance. Reservations are necessary. We were led immediately to our table and presented with a fixed price menu $16.00 for 3 courses. The... More

We paid a visit in April 2016 with friends as part of a fund-raising event. The restaurant is actually part of Algonquin College for students studying in the field. So, we kept that in mind. We were served a chicken breast, that was overcooked and a bit dry, but still tasty. So, we did not really make a point with... More

For my anniversary dinner we decided to eat here, as my husband has been wanting to try it. Plus, I love the idea of supporting the students and their endeavour to learn. The evening started off great, I had a tempura which was so well flavored and the batter was light and fluffy – dare I say it was nearly... More
