Best calamari and sirloin I've ever had paired with exceptional service. Our server was knowledgeable, super friendly and extremely efficient. Prices were very reasonable considering the high quality of the food. We'll definitely be returning to try another dish on the menu.

The duck nachos are the best. We visited to grab a quick bite before a party. The dinner size was perfect to share along with a plate of wings

Food was amazing. Always a treat to try there off menu items as well. Great experience, highly recommend. Much easier to park on Duckworth too, as compared to Waterstreet or Harbour Drive. Will gladly be returning there to eat.

We went out for our birthday suppers and everything was incredible! The food was absolutely amazing. They have the best cod tacos in town! And the lamb pasta was delicious!

Absolutely amazing.What started as an evening talking about business it (the evening) was consumed trying to guess spices and flavors. It was an experience something everyone should try.

I understand that the restaurant business is not an easy one, however it does not excuse poor service. My wife and I were very disappointed with the food and the overall service. My wife's chair was broken, our bread side plates and knives were taken away and someone asked if we had received any bread prior to our meal, which we hadn't. My soup was cold and had to be sent back and our entrees were mediocre at best. The young man who served us was nice enough, however he was inattentive and seemed to be all over the place. On a couple of occasions during the evening two of his colleagues had to step in and check on us and the quality of our meal. Unless something drastically changes, I will not be eating at Magnum and Stein's anytime soon.

My husband and I ate a Magnum on Valentines Day, February 14th. The meal was absolutely delicious, the service was great but it was a very cold night and our table was directly from the door leading to the hotel and we were froze to death. The entire evening my husband had to continuously close the door as it would not close on its own when people were entering or existing. Again our meal was lovely as was the service but we wish we had another seat away from the door so we could fully enjoyed the Magnum and Steins eating experience that we have in the past.

Very enjoyable evening. Ambiance is warm and inviting, music is good and not overpowering. Food was fantastic, however pasta special was overpriced. Other than that, a great evening and will return.

We loved Magnum and Steins! Delicious, fresh food served by a very friendly, professional staff. We definitely appreciated the happy hour appetizers and drinks as well. The noise level was low which made for a perfect, cozy date night.

We ordered scallops and they tasted very fishy. We order scallops out at restaurants often so that was disappointing. The Caesar salad was very nice. And the meat board of steak and sausage was lovely however the chicken was very dry. We have eaten at Magnum and Stein several times and this time was marginal.

Food was Plentiful but we were not blown away by it. One complaint was that we got there in time for happy hour and we were told of the happy hour specials but when the waiter came back to take our order it was 2min past the time and declined our order from the happy hour menu. It was not our fault that he came back later than 7 to take our order. And although the food was plentiful I think for what we had it was a little overpriced. For two people just having app soup and fish as our main course with a couple of drinks almost $150 is a bit pricy. I can’t say we will be back any time soon.

Even though waiter was pleasant, he wasnt checking quickly enough after bringing dishes. Had a problem and waited a bit too long to send food back. Backgroung music was not relaxing, not ideal for fine dining. But food was very tasty!

My husband and I normally eat in the dining room; however we had to sit in the downstairs bar for this reservation as it was quite busy. Food and service was still outstanding, just found the basement bar to be cold and too loud for us. Much prefer the upstairs and our favorite server Laura 😃

Our server was fantastic and 3/5 loved the food....however the other two ordered something that came with different ingredients than listed. They offered a new dish however everyone else was already eating- should have been given a discount or something.
Ordered pasta with bacon and mushrooms and it showed up with no bacon and olives- I hate olives!
