Mea Culpa
Ranked #10 of 12 Restaurants in Dunham
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 July 2016

Apparently lack of customer base led to closing of this restaurant over a year ago. It has remained closed until new owners re-opened it recently in June with a completely new attitude, name & menu.

The new owners (from The Brasserie Dunham) have made significant renovations & were very accommodating when we stopped by with questions. They provided my wife & I a menu & wine list both of which have some very interesting options at reasonable prices & we both look forward to returning their offerings. They are only open around the weekends for lunch & supper (i.e. Thursday to Sunday). The restaurant name is now Dunham Table Fermiere, reservations are recommended. We look forward to returning at our earliest free weekend & will review it after our first experience.

Expensive for subquality food. Waited ridiculously long (more than 40 minutes) for a classique poutine. Hubby didn't enjoy the expensive but skinny chicken wings. Waited on a promised order that never came. No apologies received for bad service. Arrived hungry but happy, left hungrier, angry and cursing. Avoid this place at all costs.

Atmosphere was ok, exposed brick walls, ceiling fans, music a bit too high, etc. Food prices were a bit high but acceptable, however,wine prices were outrageous @ $9.75 for a glass of 'vin ordinaire' of 5 ounces . Service was good throughout. Our order of fish & chips- the batter was nicely crisp & light, but the fish within was sparse & stringy therein. However,the carrot soup to start was excellent. At this point all went from mediocre to not acceptable. Coffee which I look forward to black was not only cool but also burnt from being kept long term on a heater. Both desserts chosen in the $8 + range tasted dry,& a bit stale, my Profiterole was frozen solid & had a thick crust (maybe 1/4 inch), very difficult to pierce. My dessert price was removed from the bill as requested. Our long anticipated enjoyable social afternoon resulted instead a series of negotiations with restaurant issues. I would not recommend this restaurant, nor would I return. I believe that there are too many other restaurants in this area that offer better value at similar or even lower prices. Note eliminating the wine would reduce the price by approximately 50%.
