    With it being the Algonquin we expected more. Server was friendly and accommodating with dietary restrictions. Food was overpriced for what we got.

    Went for Valentine's Day. Looked forward to the absolutely spectacular mussels we had in May of this year. Very disappointed. They were small, and the recipe was also disappointing. I had to send it back, which is not something I like to do. The waiter and manager were very understanding and apologetic. I ordered the Japanese chicken appetizer, which was very tasty and fun. Overall, the atmosphere was good, decorated for the occasion, and service was very friendly, fun, and quick. We will definitely go back as we are locals, but please bring back your other mussell recipe!! I guess it wasn't the time of year for mussels. They were the smallest I ever had, so not good value for money. Many were closed or not able to eat either. The restaurant does need a bit of a refresh and cleaning too to keep up with the prices they ask.

    Braxton's Restaurant & Bar offers a unique dining experience in the heart of St. Andrews-by-the-sea. My partner and I really enjoyed our anniversary at Braxton's, the food, service, and drinks exceeded our expectations. We will be visiting again.

    Braxton's is always a great restaurant. Unfortunately, the took off the menu the tomahawk steak. So, disappointing. We wanted it for a special occasion. The Manager seen we were upset, and told us that if we wanted it next time, call a few days before. He would place a special order. Great Staff. The Tomahawk to be honest, was why we didn't stay in St. John's, as hard as that is to believe.

    Leading up to the reservations we sat out in the common area to have a drink and the service was not great, it took forever to get waited on. I originally made reservations at Braxton’s for 630. I was hoping to be seated on the bar side as I would normally sit there but was out on the other side in front of the kitchen with a lot of kids around. Not the vibe I was going for. I left and decided to go to the right whale pub and the service there was worst than Braxton’s. We sat for 10 minutes without anyone coming to grab a drink order. I went to the bar and ordered, not a big deal… the place didn’t seem overly crazy and it wasn’t full but the server had a hard time to serve us. There was also a gentleman who seemed to be maybe the manager who whizzed by us very busy like and annoyed. At any rate. I come to the Algonquin probably 6 times a year and have always had very good service and this time was a huge disappointment. I will return in hopes that it does improve. Thank you.

    We have eaten at Braxton’s at the Algonquin many times. The last few times it’s been going downhill. The waitress was great and tried to make up for the restaurant’s deficiencies. My wife had a new pasta dish and although it tasted ok, it was cold. I had a ribeye, it came with fries, my fault, I didn’t notice that or else I would have ordered a potato. However, the fries were cold as well and my ribeye was as thin as a fast fry from a grocery store. There were no veggies either, just a steak sitting on a big white plate. It also didn’t have much for seasoning. They did try to make up for it with a free dessert for us both. The tarte and cheesecake seemed like they had been sitting in a Costco display case for a week before being served.

    We ordered a bottle of wine that was $55 on the wine list. They charged us $75 and when I questioned it they said that wine is market price and is not always the same price as the menu says. Not impressed at all. The next morning I received a call from the food and beverage manager and the General Manager. They more than made it right! Very happy with how they handled the situation.

    My fiancé steak was very grisly and a bit rare for the medium that was ordered and the serving size of mashed potatoes was child size . Our server was excellent and we enjoyed our evening there . Overall I feel we could have had more menu choices and larger servings elsewhere so I would not eat there again .

    My friend has a shellfish allergy which I noted only reservation as well with our waiter to which we were assured the kitchen could accommodate any food allergy. Well my friend became very I'll when we returned to our room to which she said is typical symptoms to her contact with shellfish. Very disappointing.we dined here the night before had the same appetizers (tuna tartar)which was delicious. We both had the ribeye with gnocchi instead of mash potatoes mixed veggies.The gnocchi was horrible the steak was awful and the carrots in mixed vegetables were hard as rocks. So enjoyed our first dinner however this second night was a complete disappointment and shellfish allergies can be deadly.

    More than a few menu items were not available. Menu changes have resulted in a very narrow selection of items. Prices are too high for the quality, portions, and types of items. Bring back the seafood fettuccine.

    The hotel was gorgeous and we were very excited to eat dinner at Braxtons. However, our experience was disappointing. The food was good (not great) and for an elegant place like this with the kinds of prices and ambiance provided, the service ruined our evening. Our waiter essentially took our order and did nothing else. We had to look around and ask for a second round of drinks, he did not ask us how our food was after it was served. My son's $42 steak was medium, not medium rare. The waiter never came by to inquire if we needed anything. Our empty plates sat there quite a long time, until we finally moved them to the side and stood up to leave. At that point, he suddenly appeared. We did speak with the manager who was very nice and he removed one round of drinks from our $200 tab.

    Alway a great time at Braxton's. First time for lunch. A little disappointed in the menu. My Wife and I normally order the Tomahawk steak for 2. Were not able to order it, because they do not deviate from the lunch menu. Unfortunately, Will not be coming back for lunch again.
