Over many years Einstein's has been my special place for special occasions. Consistently delicious. BUT four of us had an awful experience last week. The spritzer and the Margarita were watery. Our complaint to the wait person set off repeated denials: "both drinks were made with the requisite amounts of liquor/wine" She did not offer to add a shot or... More

Probably the best meal I've had in Guelph to date! I got Pesto Pasta, and it was DELICIOUS. Pesto Pasta is, according to the menu, Fettuccine tossed with pesto, tomatoes, black olives and feta. I think there was some minced garlic in it, too because I could smell it. It was a perfectly cooked pasta and the portion was big... More

I have been going there for years but no more. I order the chefs creation because I asked the sever what the person beside had order. She said she would tell the chef I wanted the same thing. When I got my order it was a terrible beef wrap and spinach salad which I ate only the salad. It was... More

We love this place! Hidden Jem! We go every once and while on Friday nights for that amazing Prime Rib, although everything is top notch quality and all made in house! The waiters are amazing and make your dinner experience all you could ever hope for! I invited my grandparents to join us and we celebrated my birthday and let... More

4 of us enjoyed 4 different meals, all enjoyed very much, on a busy Saturday night before an 8:00 show. Host and hostess were wonderful, and they suggested leaving car there and walking thru parking lot to River Run. About a 5 minute walk, which was a nice surprise. Will come again if headed to the theatre. Thanks Einstein's :).

Very friendly atmosphere, service is fantastic and the food is amazing. The chef is there to please. He will also cater to off the menu requests. They also do catering as well, which I have ordered. Like the restaurant the catered food was equally amazing. I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

As a UoG student, I frequent this restaurant for special events or simply to take my parents out for dinner when they visit, Friday's prime rib special is a steal and always delicious here and even for all the other nights of the week, my friends and I always find the food excellent! It is a little outside of the... More

Had the chicken caesar. Was nothing short of magnificent. Real chicken, well cooked and not dry. Delicious dressing. Real bacon. Super crisp Romaine. Was served within fifteen minutes of arrival on a very busy day. Coffee was excellent. Server was charming and effortlessly efficient despite being run off her feet. The building is delightful. Good place for a quiet lunch... More

We went to Einstein's for a work party and the staff was very accommodating to my dietary needs. They altered the menu a bit in order to make it vegan for me, and even surprised me with an amazing vegan dessert! It really means a lot that they would put in the effort to go above and beyond to make... More
