We ate in the basement, which had a nice cosy ambience. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
Service very slow. 6:30 reservation food after 8:00. Had to ask for bread and water multiple times.
Wonderful experience!! Haven’t been to this restaurant since it moved locations on Duckworth Street (many many years ago) and now wondering why we waited so long! Absolutely amazing food, service and ambiance. If you haven’t tried M&S…..treat yourself. You won’t be disappointed!
Great seafood and excellent service. Atmosphere is cozy.
Family get together dinner. We were treate
Fantastic food and service. Will be there again. Would highly recommend.
Food was delicious and plated beautifully. Service was exceptional.
Delicious food and outstanding service. Will definitely return.
The hostess and waitress were so sweet and very attentive. The food was great, we had the scallops, the surfboard spread, and the duck nachos (a must!). They also have the best margarita I’ve ever had.
My husband and I were visiting from the west coast and wanted a nice evening out with a great meal and we certainly received it!! Renee our server was absolutely fantastic and the food was so delicious. The fish was fresh and the lamb was to die for. Thanks, we definitely will be back.
Excellent service! Delicious food!
one of our favorite places to dine. we will be returning
Pleasant and efficient staff. Food was nicely presented , wonderful selection and delicious .
Only my second time but it did not disappoint! Atmosphere, food, drinks and service was excellent! Thanks Kelly for making our visit so great!
The service was great and our food was delicious, looking forward to our next visit!
Prefer to be in restaurant area not the bar in the basement. Noisy. Also, door was opened permitting second hand smoke to enter the area.
Would highly recommend, service and atmosphere is the perfect match! Everything our party of 4 ordered was fantastic! Only comment is the duck nachos, again amazing but there was not quite enough of the duck spread to enjoy with the nachos, either more duck or less nachos. Had the duck nachos appetizer before and there was way more duck on the serving compared to this time.
Our server Blair was awesome! Very knowledgeable and friendly!
Great meal and service. Wait times were reasonable, food was amazing! Definitely on my list of favorites!
I thought second time might be the charm but not for us. No problem with the wait staff as she did as much as she could. Our server came to us at 805 and told us our food would be just a few minutes. Reservation at 645 received entree at 835. Pasta and a burger??? Food was fine when we got it. Table next to us got served and done while we waited and they arrived 15 minutes after us. Some how a table of 10 downstairs bumped us down in the queue. Appreciated manager coming to us and offering an apology and comp desserts. Would still recommend you to others but with some caveats.
Great experience, highly recommend!
Excellent service. Very good selection of wine to accompany the delicious halibut and lamb. The fish soup is just what you need to get warmed up on a cool evening.
Went for happy hour with some girl friends. Great food and drinks. Service is always awesome. Will be back :)
Multi generational birthday dinner. The menu was varied and had something interesting for everybody, the quality and preparation of the food was excellent, portions were generous, service was attentive and engaging and the noise levels were low so plenty of opportunity for comfortable conversation. Overall a great experience.
Me and my fiancé love coming here! Duck nachos are our absolute favorite. Service is always great!
Excellent food, fantastic service. Fairly priced. Be will eat here again for sure.
Staff are awesome. Welcoming, engaging, friendly and smart. Food choice and quality are both excellent as well.
A great dining experience. Will go again!
A bit of a wait on drinks but not so much to deter you from enjoying the night.
Great crowd and amazing food:)
We went at 5:00 pm for happy hour and had the restaurant to ourselves. Service and food was fantastic. As the restaurant filled up it became quite loud and difficult to carry on a conversation. We would definitely eat there again.
Food was cooked to perfection. Baked cod special was amazing. Our server Laura was attentive, knowledgeable and made us feel at home. Can’t wait to go back.
I am over 50 and a candle on the table would have been handy for reading the Menu. I had to use my flashlight.
Great food and service!
Good friendly service, good happy hour prices and tasty food. We both had the seafood soup - lots of fish and mussels and good value.
The hostess was great in helping get comfortable seating for my elderly mother. We placed our food order with the waitress but then waited over an hour without food. I got up from the table and found her and told her we were starving (we noticed the table next to us got their food fairly quickly). Somehow our food order did not make it to the kitchen due to an electronic problem. When it eventually came, we were pleased with the calamari app and the rack of lamb main was delicious. However, two in the party ordered the special fish of the day (pan fried cod) but it turned out to be tough. I suspect it was due to quality of the fish rather than the cooking.
I'll probably try this place again as the food and service is normally very good here. Half of our party is very doubtful though.
This place exceeded my expectations beyond great to utterly devine from app to main. The phyllo Brie app was a perfect app for two and was sooooo good!!! The salmon was the best I’ve had since I was in Vancouver 3 years ago. I’ve had lots of good salmon but the cook on this one was absolutely delicious perfection! My partners pasta was fresh and delicious as well! We didn’t have desert because our belly’s were so full and happy! I’d definitely go back here again and recommend anyone try this place!!!
This is our favourite place to eat. The food is always excellent.
Showed up for a 7:30 reservation. Seated promptly. Server arrived and introduced herself and said “I’ll let you settle in for a little while”. 5 or 10 minutes later she returned to take our drink order...water plus a bottle of wine, both of which arrived promptly. Four tiny slices of bread with specialty butter arrived soon as well...off to a good start. About 15 minutes after we had arrived we placed our order...4 appetizers that we like to share. A salad, a baked brie, chicken wings and duck confit nachos. Our server stated that it would be best to have the salad and brie served first followed by the other two. Our first two appies arrived one hour after we ordered them...almost an hour and a half after we arrived. Our wine was nearly gone. The salad was delicious (heart of palm) and the brie also was very good. After finishing these quite quickly due to our hunger, we waited a further 45 minutes for the last two appies. The chicken wings were room temperature as they must have been sitting for a while. I mentioned this to my server and she ran off with them stating that the entire order would be replaced. I would have been satisfied with a quick microwave to heat them up, but she was gone. 25 minutes later she returned with some steaming hot wings, but by this time we were late for my wife’s birthday celebration with friends, so had them boxed up and left. Two and a half hours for four appetizers is simply way too long. We heard multiple other tables being offered apologies for incorrect orders and mixed up orders. The table next to ours had a family of four, who received incorrect dinner orders, followed by regular tea when chamomile was ordered. I heard two other tables receive a “I’m so sorry. Oh we mixed that up. I’m so sorry.” The patrons to their credit all said “no worries”, but the constant mistakes were almost laughable. I will possibly return with the knowledge that dinner out at Magnum and Steins is actually your whole night out.
Unfortunately the service was nowhere near usual. Had to wait 15 minutes beyond our reservation time to be seated. 110 minutes from appetizers to main course.
Generally good as always. Got the shareable fish plate. Though told about the absence of mussels the plate was noticeably lacking on calamari and smoked salmon. Plenty of corn chips. Won’t reorder.
