The Barrielicious promotion is a fixed price three course dinner. Three of the four of us ordered the Whitefish and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a good deal but it is only on for a couple of weeks.

Norma Jean and all the staff at the Grape and Olive always make us feel welcome when we go. This is our go-to place when we have visitors from out of town for Sunday Brunch (which gets them on their way before the 400 is a parking lot). Steaks, lamb, their amazing soup and ask Ms. Bond for a Chocolate... More

If you are looking for a special brunch, have the Sunday Brunch Buffet at the Grape and Olive at the Mariposa Inn in Orillia. On our most recent visit, the roast beef was succulent and juicy, the potatoes were cooked to perfection and the broccoli and carrots were el dente, a sign that care had been taken to ensure they...

Please note: this is a supplementary review from the one June of 2016. We decided to come to this restaurant because it was the only one in town that made gnocchi. I ordered the large portion of gnocchi at $19, my wife had the prime rib and my mother in law order the smaller gnocchi plate. My plate was tiny.... More

Hello HoneymoonandCigars, I sincerely apologize you weren't happy with the sauce on your gnocchi, which Chef refers to as a Rustic Chunky Marinara, rather than an actual sauce. We're pleased you enjoyed your prime rib, again, we're so sorry it came with black pepper. If you could please call our Chef at your earliest convenience, he would love to speak... More

We were part of a group and we agreed the waitstaff was courteous, friendly and efficient. The prime rib roast and Yorkshire pudding yummy. There is a varied menu with lots of choices and price points. This restaurant offers a sunday brunch.

it didn't look like much from the outside, so I was nervous! Once in, quickly acknowledged by staff, seated right away, and drink orders taken. Ordered the sundried tomato perogies for my appetizer, mushroom stuffed pasta for dinner and a warm apple blossom with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce for desert....it was all awesome! Fast and friendly service,... More

We stopped here on our way to New Liskeard. The food was great, lively atmosphere and quick and pleasant service. I had a Salad with Salmon and it was very good. A little pricey, but good portions and the food was good. The desserts looked incredible, although I never had one, they were moving a lot of them!
