    my wife and I had a nice dinner with another couple. cocktails were very yummy with a great wine list. Service was good and portion sizes were very generous but not too big. great flavour and they were accommodating to my wife's allergies.

    This was our second time dining at The Cannery. Both visits were to celebrate our anniversary and the visits were two years apart. We enjoyed our dinner very much. The prime rib was especially delicious, as was the Caesar salad. Our server, Lisa, was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

    Will not return for Sunday brunch. Didn’t start off very well at check in when we were assigned a table for 4 by mistake and had to wait, holding up the line, until staff separated 2 tables to allow us to sit at a table for 2. Restaurant is not designed for self serve/buffet style. Lineups everywhere you go, we were seated next to the main and only route to the back of the restaurant and there were people walking by constantly, too busy to enjoy a meal, especially on Mother’s Day. There was one egg station with one chef and people lined up all the way to the entrance at one point. We were early and waited in line 15 minutes for an omelette. Line up for the salad station, terrible self serve design. People had to cut in and out of the egg station lineup to access the salad and the served roast beef station. Hot station was in a completely different room at the back. Cold waffles in the bread section. This location does not serve brunches very often. It seemed like the very first time. Lots of logistics to be worked out in order to eat in peace and get people moving. Certainly below expectations for the Vintage Hotel group.

    Prime rib was fantastic. Only issue the Yorkie was hard not soft and puffy. The little.bun with the brie is not nessassary, as it just flakes apart. An extra cracker would be better. Service was great. Allison is very experienced and professional..nice person

    The restaurant is overpriced. A bottle of local wine was 3x the price which is ridiculous. There are much better places in NOTL to enjoy a great meal and wine.

    As we walked into the restaurant there was a small table lamp and a small square vase with a fresh rose on each table. The lights were dim and it was very quiet and romantic. The portions were abundant and absolutely delicious! I asked our waiter for a substitution for a vegetable I didn't care for and he gladly told me other options i could choose from. I would definitely refer this to anyone who would like a great dinner and ambience. We will definitely be back.

    We had the 3 course dinner at the Cannery. The neal, service and atmosphere was outstanding. I really enjoyed the crab cakes, tuna tartare and the Steak dinners were cooked perfectly. I highly recommend the Pillar and Post for dinner. The service was stellar as well. The waitress was great, and checked in on us regularly.

    The prime rib and shrimp were amazing but the Steak was half grizzle, no butter on the baked potato, the baked brie was a very very small portion for the price,no no jus for the Yorkshire pudding and the cheesecake was not as described on the menu.

    We had high expectations as we were staying at another Vintage property (The Prince of Wales), our first impression of the Pillar and Post's Vintages bar left a lot to be desired. Instead of being an upscale bar/pub, Vintages seemed to cater to families looking for inexpensive an inexpensive dining option in order to accommodate the kids. However our bartender, Justin, was terrific, until he got dragged into an order for one of the high tops, but we finally got our bill and headed to The Cannery. What a difference! We were promptly greet and shown to a table by the fireplace. Patricia, our fantastic server, was right there to offer water and give us time to choose our dinners. We ordered a Canadian bottle of wine and the enjoyed an amazing meal. Everything was perfectly cooked and the pace was spot on. Since we were staying at a Vintage Hotel property (The Prince of Wales) and had purchased the Dining Package all the food was included. VH even offers a shuttle from one hotel to another, although it's not really needed as they are both a 5-10 minute walk from each other. Dinner was amazing and Patricia's service made the experience that much better.
