    High Tea: Would be nicer in China teapots with tea cozies Would be nice to have tongs for the sugar cubes Would be nice to have more varieties of teas to choose from Would be nice to have more than one menu for 5 guests Very noisy. More soft furnishings would help the problem. Not really proper high tea

    My family and I went for afternoon tea and had a lovely time. I have a severe peanut and tree nut allergy and they were able to accommodate that which was amazing! I was able to eat everything but one of the desserts. Everything tasted wonderful, the service was fantastic and I couldn’t be happier with the experience. Highly recommend!

    An excellent environment -- was busy but not crowded and it was easy to converse even though our hearing is not so great. We both had the luncheon fixed price. My salad was fresh and crispy and the mushroom soup she had was very good. and I had the walleye which was very flavourful and nicely done. My wife had the porkloin sous vide which it was overdone -- not pink and quite dry. Not what she was expecting for sous vide. The vegetables were great. The deserts were fine, but not spectacular. She finished with a nice cappuccino. The beer I had was good but not the IPA I wanted as the keg was finished and they could not hook up a new one. She had a very nice prosecco. Overall for a birthday lunch, this was very nice and we will be back.

    We were at the Ranche for tea and have been before. We were shocked not to be able to find a parking spot at or beside the restaurant. We were fortunate to get a spot as this large lot was full as well. But we weren’t dressed to maneuver the mud and large puddles. I’m sure people going to the park to walk/ride the trails took the parking meant for customers of the restaurant. We did have a really nice time once there but the walk back was definitely interesting/scary!!

    A great place, service is top notch. The food is delicious and well presented. It might be the season, but it was a lot of very rich "bass note" type foods. Great stuff but a touch overwhelming in that respect. If you're getting flowers delivered though, be aware they might not be on the table when you get there... disappointing but they came through in the end.

    Went for afternoon tea, and waited 20 minutes for a server to acknowledge table. Restaurant was less than half full, and most of the staff was standing around, so no excuse for the delay. Food was ok, as a couple of sandwiches were stale as they are pre made for tea. First time visiting, and won’t return for afternoon tea.
