Service was top notch. Big shout out to Laura for saving the day with the wine selection again. Appetizers were fabulous, my tenderloin was perfect, everyone at the table was impressed. We are here often and this was probably the best yet.

We've been going to the "Culinary Institute" (no one calls it the "Lucy Maud" around here) for decades, so obviously, we're satisfied customers. Service is always excellent, even though many of the servers are trainees, and the room itself is beautiful, with a fine view on the harbour. Food presentation is exceptional, with beautiful plates in interesting shapes. Expensive for... More

Crusted fish with asparagus was the main. Worthy of a birthday supper! Service was great, food was beautifully presented and everything tasted wonderful.

We decided to try dinner at the culinary institute during out stay in Charlottetown and we were please with the experience. The service was excellent, friendly and the food was very good. The view from inside the dinning room is also nice. The price is reasonable but not cheap. One thing I will say is that the dinning room is... More

Started out with cooked and raw oysters. Beautiful. Then to the steak which was perfect. My wife had the scallops which I had to try as well :) Finished with Creme Brulee cheesecake and coffee. Wait staff were super attentive, however there were some who didn't know the ingredients in some of the dishes when questioned about allergies etc. This... More

If you come to Charlottetown, but, do not dine here... you have missed out! The views are great, the food is incredible, the staff are wonderful. Chef Hans and his students certainly know how to put a spread together so you leave extremely satisfied. Any special dietary requests, call ahead to advise to have a special creation made for you.

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.

The Lucy Maud Dining Room is the training restaurant for The Culinary Institute of Canada. Our students, under the guidance of world class chef instructors, prepare extraordinary culinary creations using the very best the fields and waters of PEI have to offer.

The Lucy Maud Dining Room, the Institute’s fine dining restaurant, and the Montgomery Cafeteria, are undergoing significant upgrades as part of a $7.5 million renovation and expansion project.

We will re-open to the general public in November 2017 with a fresh new look.

The renovation and expansion to The Culinary Institute of Canada was made possible by investments from the Federal and Provincial governments, and a capital campaign led by the Holland College Foundation, called Nourish.
