I could not find a place to review The Culinary Inst Dinning so I am inserting it here because it is the same location. I go to PEI once a year and I have to say I have not been thrilled with the food there. I decided with my associates to try the dinning room at The Culinary Inst. I... More

Well, it's a F&B institute....so did not have our bar standards that high but yet website indicated otherwise and even with that, we were not impressed by the food at all. Servicewise, waiters were into their 1st year so no need to be picky but with cooks on their 2nd years, we were hoping to get a way better quality.... More

This is an elegant dining room. We tried the signature cocktails (Purple Rain was too good) and had a memorable meal of autumn soups, tartare, tenderloin, duck and desserts. Great dipping sauces for the freshly baked rolls.

Our compliments to the chef and the students. Very professional. The Amuse Bouche plus the lamb and the duck entrees were fabulous. The waterfront view and food presentation made it an awesome culinary experience not to be missed.

The Lucy Maud dining room is in a school - the Culinary Institute of Canada. So the immediate entrance - looks like a school - but once inside the dining room - everything changes. The view is spectacular and the food and service are first rate. Especially the baked oyster appetizer.

Excellent 4 course menu designed and served by the staff, changing on a regular basis. Plating was stunning and each course complimentary to the previous. Staff were gracious and charming and certainly not overwhelming. Will return again when visiting the island.

While vacationing in PEI we decided to try out their Culinary Institute and were very pleased with the meal. We had the baked oysters with a creamy harissa sauce that was to die for... and the PEI mussels that were of course delicious.. however the spices in the sauce were a little heavy- too much cloves I think... anyway the...
