The Carriage House Restaurant & Wine Bar
We had family from the UK and had a lovely meal! Food was great! Staff was very attentive!
Excellent all around!!!!!! Also got some good wine advice
We absolutely loved our evening at The Carriage House. Wonderful atmosphere & service and beautifully prepared food. We look forward to to our next visit to celebrate a special occasion!
We have been to the Carriage House for dinner a number of time over the years and feel it is the best fine dining restaurant in Burlington. Franz is always very welcoming and accommodating. The menu caters to a wide range of tastes and, all things considered, prices are reasonable.
It was our first time at this restaurant and it was amazing. Staring with the service they were fantastic. We ordered the Salmon and Steak and they were cooked to perfection. For desert we ordered the coconut creamed pie and it was incredible and I highly recommend it.
Thanks for a great experience and will see you soon.

Have visited this restaurant one or two times a year for well over 15 years now. Food quality and preparation are always exceptional, matched by the service. A appetizer special salad of avocado w/lump crab and cucumber - simply amazing. Guest had venison dinner special and raved as he chewed down to bone. You get what you pay for. Don’t change a thing.
The food was even better than usual and their usual is great. Service was as good as always. It’s not an inexpensive restaurant but you get what you pay for.
Thanks for a great dinner.
Excellent fine dining experience....excellent food and excellent service
We’ve been to the Carriage House many times and are never disappointed; this time was no exception
It was our second time dining here. Wonderful food, impeccable service.
Had foie gras, beef carpaccio, auzzie rack of lamb and 16oz bone in USDA prime beef tenderloin cooked over mesquite. You can smell the mesquite while walking from 200m away. So good.
If I had to change anything it would be for them to use local sourced ingredients. Ontario lamb and Alberta beef, (which in my humble opinion) are both way better than the imported meat. Overall a great dinner. A bit pricey too so looking forward to our next special occasion to return.
Absolutely fantastic meal again - we will return !!!!
Again a wonderful relaxing and enjoyable birthday dinner.
The food and the service were outsatanding.
As always impeccable service and food!
I expected more.
Another amazing dinner at Carriage House. The food is always exceptional and the service is 5 star. The Patio is our favourite spot
Kelly was our waiter and he was outstanding. It was our first visit and we'll be back. The food was amazing and the portion size was generous. We had a lovely evening!
Truly an exceptional experience. First class dining experience from introduction to dessert
It was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday with a special friend. The food was outstanding, the service impeccable and the atmosphere just right!
The food was delicious, creative, and perfectly cooked. The cocktails were perfect. The service was attentive, and very professional, and the ambiance was lovely. Dessert was a bit of a letdown, felt like it was just taken out of the fridge, tasted a bit like freezer, but they noticed we didn’t eat it, asked why, and immediately offered to take it off the bill. It was a pricey meal, hence the 4 stars for value, but I would definitely go back again for a special occasion. Overall was very impressed.
Alway consistant and reliable, we had an outstanding time, many thnaks
I chose The Carriage House as a last minute plan to take my mother out for Mother’s Day. It was our first experience with the restaurant. The service was fantastic from the minute we walked through the door. The food was very flaourvul and filling.
I have food sensitivities to processed, pre-made fare that’s served at the popular food chains. I was pleased to see that the meals at The Carriage House are likely made in-house. Not one digestive issue.
The dessert was also fabulous.
It is a more pricey restaurant but I’ll happily return. The quality of the meals were worth every penny.
The Carriage House is a special place for us. We had our first date here and even got married right on the second floor. We go back every year for our anniversary and are never disappointed. A high class place for a quiet romantic special night out. The staff are above and beyond.
We love this restaurant.
Food is always excellent as well as the service
Very welcoming and courteous
Fantastic food. Ambiance was wonderful. Cocktails first and a lovely bar area, very “homey” feel and intimate. Would definitely recommend and return here.
Nourriture excelente. Nous étions avec notre fille de 3 ans. Malheureusement l’établissement n’est évidement pas près pour recevoir des enfants. A l’arriver pas de siège d’appoint. Lors du debut du repas ils servent une petite bouche. Mais pas pour notre enfant. Lors du dessert nous avons demandés un dessert a partager. Pas de fourchette pour la petite. En fin lors de la facture un petit chocolat pour les client est offert mais pas pour les enfants?
Bref nous sommes une petite famille qui savent apprécier les bonnes tables. Incluant notre fille.
La dimension de restaurant chic ou pas ne quitte pas le fait qu’in serveur doit être conscient des gens qu’il reçoit.
De fait le serveur nous a admit ne pas avoir d’enfant. Désolé mais nous oui.
J’ai nettement senti que les enfant n’était pas le bienvenu.
Nous avons quand même dépenser 400$ + pour 3 adultes et un enfant.
La nourriture était bien. L’endroit plutôt austère et sérieux.
This such a wonderful restaurant. Great food and service
If you want a true fine dining experience with top quality food then Carriage House is the place for you. Exceptional wait staff and service without the attitude - They always make us feel at home and are always extremely accommodating. My wife wanted something that they used to have on the menu and without hesitation they said they would be happy to make it for her. Amazing!
I would absolutely recommend this restaurant! Best food, service and atmosphere I can remember experiencing.
My new favourite spot! We’ll be back!
The restaurant provides first class food and first class service...terrific ambiance and nothing but praise for the entire evening.
Always very enjoyable. I think the rating says it all.
This food and service in the fine dining was fabulous, enjoyed every minute of it
Service is top notch with an extensive menu that won’t necessarily blow the budget.
We really enjoyed our evening at The Carriage House. Your staff is impeccable and the food was wonderful. The only thing we didn't really think much of was the fact that it was too dark at the table which made it very difficult to read the menu. We don't need a lamp but please at least make your candle bigger! A tiny tealight doesn't quite do it. Many, many years ago, we had dinner at Jonathan's in Oakville, and the four of us at the table had to ask for more light. We were given a tiny flashlight by the waiter! Needless to say, we never went back.
Went for Valentines date with my wife. Chef had the food arranged in heart shapes in the display fridge. Food was delicious and the service was exceptional.
It was valentines dinner and maybe they were short staffed? The food was slow very slow. They weren’t any bus people plates sat empty as did wine glasses etc. No one came by to check on food offer drinks etc. When we finally flagged the waiter down to order dessert and coffee our portions were small compared to the couples around us, who came later and were served first the food was very good but the overall experience wasn’t. The lack of service, and available staff couldn’t justify the price tag.
Since our last visits, we raved about the quality and service and would have rated this a five star restaurant, all around.,tonight was so disappointing, on such a special occasion.,Honestly this doesn’t rank in our top ten restaurant anymore. We are frequent diners in Burlington. We are very disappointed to post this..
Valentine's Day and I think Carriage House must have been understaffed in the kitchen.
First of all, our server was great; no issues. Nice guy, great service from his side...
We allocated 1 hr and 45 mins to dinner since we had other things to do also. I thought this should be enough time; maybe this was wrong from the start. During this time, we received our appetizer. We had to leave before receiving our main course, which was disappointing obviously. Our server apologized, but there was no manager in sight at all.
Maybe some of this is on us for not allocating enough time to dinner on Valentine's Day. If so, then our lesson is not to go out to dinner on a special occasion like this again, since I don't think always having to allocate 2+ hours out of the gate is reasonable. The lesson on Carriage House's side is that reasonable speed of service still matters on Valentine's Day; staff up appropriately. Don't just pack them in to maximize revenue and leave people to wonder what is going on. There was zero communication or apologies from management, which was disappointing. This visit to Carriage House was our first and was not a good impression. From my vantage point, this is on management; as it often is in these situations.
The Carriage House restaurant itself is a really nice environment. The staff that we encountered were all very nice and professional. We will likely go back to this restaurant one day, but we will not rush back, especially not on a special occasion when management may not staff up appropriately to meet the increased demand.
The food was great/delicious. Sea bass portion was too small. The venison wellington was a little overdone, but still delicious.
The lighting in the bar room was too low.
Service was spotty - had to ask several times for water refills.
Food was incredible and the service was great :)))
