We recently enjoyed a nice lunch and afternoon cocktail here. Very beautiful ambiance and delicious meal. The jw Caesar is not to be MISSED!

...slow service. We stayed at the Rosseau for 3 nights and we got tired of the pretty limited, unchanging menu. That being said, the food was tasty (though unremarkable), the children's menu had a couple of interesting choices (salmon!) and the view and ambiance was great. The service on the other hand was painfully slow. Can't really recommend dining here... More

A full and well-tended bar in the Rousseau hotel. Great setting looking out ver the Muskoka lake. Full stocked, and well-trained, friendly staff. Food available or go to the adjacent excellent restaurants.

We had more than enough delicious food and were very well taken care of by the staff. Would highly recommend this establishment when at the J W Resort.

The food was good at this restaurant in the lobby of the J. W. Marriott Muskoka. The view out the full wall windows was lovely. The service was pretty mediocre - you know the kind of waiter who seems to studiously avoid eye contact with any diners in case they want something.

We sat on the patio. Service was terrible!! It took over 20 minutes for a server to come by so we went and got our own cutlery and drinks from the bar. The buffet was terrible..salad was wilted, veggies were over cooked, lamb was chewy. Desserts were not to write home about. We were charged for our 4 year old... More

We waited for 90 minutes for our hamburgers. We had a table near an exit and while it was -38 C outside, many people wanted to experience what -38 C feels like and exited and entered continuously - it was cold at our table. The hamburger was OK, but not worth the wait in the cold.
