Had a lunch with my wife and Grandson. Staff were very professional and very friendly. All three of us were very happy with our meals. Prices were in the medium range. Very satisfied.

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...More

The newly-renovated 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 Institute’s fine dining restaurant and first floor dining areas 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.
