We would like to thank you for helping us plan a successful dinner. It was a huge treat for my family and a new celebration of many other family events in the past at The Old Mill. I received many compliments from the guests at the party which was mainly due to you and your staff at The Old Mill. The staff were interested and very attentive including Wilma, Bob, the bartender and the wonderful servers. The service and food was great as well as the venue. I especially liked the French service. Please relay my compliments to you and your staff for making this a memorable event for my family and friends.

I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with my daughter’s baby shower on Sunday. The staff were amazing! Dimitri and the team were professional, kind, helpful and always with a smile. At no time did they make us feel that we were an imposition. I truly would recommend this venue to my friends.

I recently hosted a Gala Fundraising Dinner for ~ 150 guests within the Guildhall room @ The Old Mill venue/complex in Toronto. It was a fantastic decision to host the event there. The location and venue itself is without flaw. The Old Mill’s Events team was very helpful, professional and most importantly patient with my group as we fine tuned all the ins and outs of hosting an event. The evening of event was perfectly executed by the Old Mill team. The were accommodating and flexible in real time. The food and service was both perfect. Anyone interested in hosting an event at the Old Mill will not be disappointed. Thanks Old Mill – we’ll be back!

“I’d like to thank you for piloting me through all the steps that led to my mother’s very successful and very joyous 90th birthday party!

It’s people like you one needs to steer a big ship like the Old Mill Toronto’s catering division. And its people like Wilma, my Room Captain, that make it pleasant to host a party in the Victoria Room. And its people like the lovely staff who attended our tables, that make it possible for 45 people to enjoy a memorable meal (that I didn’t have to worry about cooking or serving!).

I’m sure you had a very busy summer. There were so many events happening, post-pandemic, and you must have been dealing with lots of events, before, during and after ours. I’m grateful that Old Mill Toronto was able to accommodate our event and I’m glad it was you who I dealt with to organize the event. We loved the Victoria Room!

All of our third-party partners worked out — AV-Canada, Bob Vienneau (photographer), Oleander, Dufflet’s — and, as if by magic, people arrived, found their places, and the order of events unfolded without any glitches, and just enough tiny hitches to make it seem real (and not a dream).

I had lots of compliments on the meals — so my compliments to the chefs! We loved the salad, the wild mushroom agnolotti with parmesan, truffle salad, and the fruit salad. Wilma was very helpful with the microphone, the air conditioning, and the cake cutting.

We were rather reluctant to leave the party. If I have any tiny gripes, it’s that we were whisked out of the room (shortly after 4 pm) when it would have been wonderful to linger on for another 15 or 20 minutes. But we did understand that you probably needed to get the room ready for another event that very day!!

So, thanks to you and your co-workers’ kindness and professionalism.”
