We were wanting to try the brunch menu for a while now and saw that you were booking a month out. While scrolling through your site mid last week I was happy to see that a couple tables opened up for Saturday and I was lucky enough to snag a table for my family of 4.

Our server was great. She was friendly and very helpful. She got out complicated last name correct which was a bonus haha

Food was amazing. Presentation was beautiful. Food tasted wonderful and the 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal although we may have eaten to much. Will definitely be coming again

We went for the all you can eat brunch. Two dishes were note worthy all the rest were not worth the calories. It’s a place you only need to go once. I’m an avid brunch eater so my standards were set pretty high. Oh well the experience was nice.

It was a good experience the first time I went, however this time it was severely lacking in service and speed. We had been seated earlier than another table, and yet they had their orders taken first and food flew to their table quicker than ours. We still had not received even water at that point. Which is tough given we have two young kids with us. We were also celebrating an occasion and it felt like we were barely acknowledged. Disappointed in this as the first time we dined here we had outstanding service from another waitress who was absolutely phenomenal and went above and beyond to ensure we felt taken care of.

The food here is absolutely amazing but unfortunately it took a LONG time for food and drinks to come. We ordered our first round of bottomless dishes and I think the waitress knew it would take a while as she took the order for the next round quite soon after which I was happy with. I wanted to have a few dishes together so waited with food on my plate, but it was twenty minutes until the next round came so it was cold. And then again, another 15 minute wait. Perhaps this was done so we didn’t eat as much but I was really hoping I could try all the dishes but it was not possible with how long they took to come & wanting to reorder your favourite ones. The food is outstanding and the waitress was very good but I doubt I will return in a hurry.

Simply fantastic! Best dining experience we've ever had and our server Emilee was the best server I've ever had the pleasure of dining with. She was attentive and funny, knew her stuff when it came to the menu and made the experience of celebrating my husband's birthday there so enjoyable.

The food was delicious and exciting - so many creative dishes and unique combinations of flavours! Excellent atmosphere as well - it felt upscale without being snooty and the staff were warm and friendly. I would come back in a heartbeat!

Atmosphere was nice. Server was lovely and very professional. The dishes were delicious and promptly served. Arc after dark is a great option as you get to try many different dishes for a reasonable price.

1hr30 mins time to eat is a tad rushed. 2 hours would be perfect. We decided not to get dessert because we felt our time limit was approaching.

It was my birthday weekend however I didn’t realize that the brunch was only for fridays Saturday and Sunday only :( I know it states this on the web page however I feel like that should be posted more then just on the menu.

Me and my girlfriend were excited to give the brunch a try since we had heard so many good things and let me tell you this was the best experience ever and it really was all because of our server Alcina. The food was delicious and definitely worth the trip but if you have the pleasure of being served my Alcina, that in itself is worth it. She took very good care of us and made sure we tried all the must haves on the menu. It is clear that she loves her job and it truly shows. We did nothing but laugh and she was so personable (the snorts were my favourite). She truly made out day and we would go back in a heartbeat.

My partner and I dined at the ARC restaurant Saturday Feb 20th and it was simply one of the best overall experience we have had dining out. Everything from the greeting at the entrance, service from the staff and the exceptional food, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We chose the ARC after dark menu and for whoever this review may influence you will not be disappointed as it was both great value and amazing food, highly impressive. Food highlight was the steelhead dish and the pasta. We did enjoy some fantastic cocktails of which the raspberry mojito was fantastic.

We also the following day had our bottomless brunch menu and this was as equally as impressive.

Overall 10/10, we will return. Special mention to Gordon at the brunch who is one of the best servers we have experienced in Canada, top service.

I wish i had taken pictures but the food was gone in seconds! Better go hungry as you’ll want to try all of the tapas! Hard to pick a favourite, but the braised beef is a MUST and also the steelhead and also the seafood pasta! yum, Yum, YUM! The baked brie, the meatballs..honestly, should try at least a bit of everything. Don’t be surprised if you have to get rolled outta there...you’ve been warned!

Our waitress was very good. I wish I remembered her name but she was absolutely lovely. I was not particularly fond of the attitude at the reception. They weren't rude but the tone just wasn't right. I understand I was late but did call to inform them and then was repeatedly told that my reservation time would be cut from 1:30 to 1:15 minutes. Now if this was actually followed, I would have said the ARC after dark experience would not be worth it because after ordering drinks and just finishing our first courses we were already 45 minutes into our seated time, which means we would be very rushed to get through our next set of ordering. Thankfully we were not asked to leave and we were able to enjoy our time and enjoy the wonderful menu. Food was good, some dishes (Arugula salad, Chicken Liver Bahn Mi, Ahi Tuna) were great with great flavours. Others fell a bit flat. Overall though good experience and worth the money if you can actually try a good majority of the menu!

We're a younger couple and when we arrived for our reservation we felt very much as though we were taking a back seat to an older couple who lined up behind us. They seemed to get preferred service. I had indicated that we were coming for a special occasion on our reservation, but we were given a large table for 6 near the bar which was very exposed. Not the ideal way to celebrate just the two of us.

Otherwise, our server, the food, and the atmosphere of the restaurant were incredible.
