We loved being able to see the city during the day, at dusk and at night all in one sitting. Our server Jason did a wonderful job by being attentive yet judging when we needed him so as not to interrupt the conversation. The food was delicious, and you left feeling satisfied. With this restaurant you get the ultimate in ambiance and food quality.

My youngest daughter and I had the Artic Char. It was was delicious - tender with just the right amount of seasoning.

My eldest daughter had the duck. It was amazingly tender. The sauce enhanced the flavor.

My husband opted for the Prime Rib, cooked medium rare. It was tender and flavorful.

La Ronde has made our 28th Anniversary celebration memorable.

I'll say that the experience at La Ronde was only OK. The food tasted good, and it was served quickly, but is a little overpriced. I understand that you're also paying for the unique atmosphere of a revolving restaurant. My biggest complaint is the server that we got. We ordered an appetizer and our main courses at the same time and were surprised when the main course meals arrived without ever being served the appetizer! I asked if we were still going to get the appetizer we ordered and our server apologized for forgetting to put in the order for our appetizer. For dessert we ordered the mango cheesecake, but received a mixed berry type of cheesecake instead. I didn't bother saying anything to our server this time. When I looked at the bill, the appetizer was listed, but the price beside it was $0. Everyone has a bad day and perhaps our server was going through one. I still gave her a small tip, but I don't feel it wasn't deserved. It will be a long time before we go back to La Ronde.

We arrived at Laronde just before our reservation. We were asked for our Vaccine passports and photo ID-no problem as we all have them. The place was rather quiet which was great and the service was wonderful as usual. I can't remember our server's name-he was of Japanese decent and a great guy! Thanks for the wonderful experience as usual, we will be back again soon!

We saw the menu on open table and it included lamb and a fillet mignon, however when we got to the restaurant it was not an option. Disappointed in that firstly, our waiter hyped up the bread and it was just okay. The Caesar salad was done really well. The prime rib was suggested as one of the signature dishes and it wasn’t anything special. We paid over $200 for our meal and went in expecting to be blown away with flavours and it was just okay. Could have got a cheaper meal at a franchise resultant for the same level of flavours.
I probably won’t recommend this restaurant for the food but the atmosphere, service, and revolving was nice.

While the view and service was outstanding, the food was disappointing. For the high price (over $300), we expected more upscale dishes. Choices were limited - our three dishes (prime rib, duck and bison) all had the same wine reduction and vegetables (carrots and green beans). The sides (mashed potatoes, chickpea puree and fingerling potatoes) were bland and unappetizing. If you are looking for a unique experience - rotating restaurant with fantastic view - then this is definitely the place to visit. If you are looking for high quality and unique food experience, find another place.

We ate here to celebrate signing papers on house purchase. Great views, prompt and friendly service, and excellent food. Parkade was a bit confusing (especially exiting) but not unexpected, perhaps, for such a quirky old hotel.

Overall met our expectations and will be back. Be a good place to take first-time visitors to the city to show them the views.

Food was ok. Not up to par with a top notch restaurant though. Honestly you may as well go to the Keg for better food at a better price.

Ambience is nice, rotating seating area is cool but won’t come here again. They definitely need to step up their game with quality of food vs the prices they are asking because the quality does not meet the value.

Prices compare to Normands but the food is not as good as Normands.

We have been here 4 times now and I keep hoping it gets better. But after this last visit we won’t be coming back.

The windows were unfortunately very filmed outside and in. It would seem that side of cleanliness has been ignored.

We were there for the food, but more so, willing to pay top dollar for the view and to take pictures. I was very disappointed. The reflection of interior lights also marred the pictures we were able to take.

Otherwise, our server did his best to make us comfortable and to serve the guests well. I will return, hoping to see better infrastructure care and attention.

We are very happy to hear that La Ronde had opened up again after 1.5 years. The food and experience is always one of the top dining restaurants in the city.
You will never get a view of the city anywhere better. Most of the waiters have been there 10+ years. Our waiter Dean is exceptional and we enjoy our dining experience with him.

Amazing view. Professional service. Finally open again after being closed for 18 months because of COVID.

Menu heavily beef based and not very imaginative. Smallish portions. Good for special occasions and an older diner.

Our special day was not recognized whatsoever. My husband asked if he could get the end cut, asked server again if he was getting it and then did not get it. The desired temperature would have been entirely different had he known he wasn’t getting the end cut. The seating was very, very close, especially during COVID times. We were forced to listen to the lady next to us criticize her sons through our whole meal and then they seated a couple with very heavy cologne right behind us. Needless to say we skipped dessert and got out of there as quickly as possible. Nice to say we experienced the revolving restaurant with incredible views but will never need to go back.

We always go to La Ronde at least once or twice a year on special occasions pre-Covid. We were so excited to go back last Friday. The service was excellent; we could feel his exuberance to work again. The food, not quite exciting. The crab meat (appetizers) that were just a bit bigger than a Toonie was ridiculously priced and it didn’t even taste like crab meat, more like tuna with lots of herbs. I had to make a crab cake when I came home with real crab meat and voila! There goes the difference. The steak was excellent, so that was good. There were no exciting seafood dishes on the menu. Overall, disappointing. We won’t most probably be going back anytime soon. Time to find other restaurants.

Went for Sunday brunch buffet. I imagine night time is very different.

If you're looking for phenomenal service, and the best view in the city, this is your place.

The food is good, just nothing outstanding.

Sunday brunch is large groups, and a lively setting. Great for families. I imagine night time is much more ambient.
