Outdoor patio was full with people enjoying Sunday breakfasts! Lovely ambiance. Excellent and courteous service. Consistently attentive staff. We reserved an interior table. Our coffee was served throughout our meal. Delicious high quality food, and very nicely plated presentation. Highly recommend Megalos Restaurant for Sundays brunches, as well as 'all special occasions'. Our family had a wonderful birthday celebration here and it truly was beyond expectations. Well done, Megalos!

We had an amazing server! She was very kind and funny. Food was quickly prepared and our steaks were each cooked perfectly. We had an appetizer that the staff kindly split into two individual bowls for easier sharing which was very surprising and very appreciated! We came to celebrate a birthday and the staff made us feel very welcomed and valued. Overall an amazing evening.

Everything was wonderful expert for being seated right next to the bar which meant that there was constant noise from the margarita machine. I asked to be moved but there was a large group occupying the rear of the restaurant.

i booked on-line and noted that pizzas on wednesday are $13, exception grand theatre nights...when we got to the restaurant and inquired about the special, our server (very nice) told us the deal is pizza & wine on wednesdays...not wanting to make a fuss and not sure i had read the special correctly i did not argue, but i wish i had because the $13 deal is indeed advertised on-line.

Excellent Mother's Day Sunday brunch! Wonderful brunch/lunch choices on menu. Food served was hot, delicious, and creatively plated. Very polite, and truly attentive servers. Prompt service considering how exceedingly busy this restaurant was due to the 'special Sunday occasion'! We very highly recommend this restaurant. Past experiences proved that this restaurant's dinner menu selection and service are consistently of high standards. Lovely ambiance! Very highly recommend Megalos.

We selected this restaurant because of its location. We found the food and beverages to be a little bit on the expensive side for what you got. The service was good. There are a lot of hard surfaces so once it started to fill up it got very loud. The bathrooms are on a lower level - not sure how those with accessibility/mobility concerns would manage.

It was theatre night so the restaurant was hopping. Even with such a large crowd we were welcomed warmly, seated promptly and made to feel relaxed and at home. The food never disappoints at Megalos and I tried the Lobster Ravioli for the first time and will definitely get it again. My husband loves the stir fry with noodles and it's his favourite to order when we go to Megalos. For anyone who hasn't tried Megalos it's well worth it!

We enjoyed our dinner celebrating our son's birthday! He chose the restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. We had been to Megalos several years ago and we were impressed with the improved changes to the menu and atmosphere. Gluten free choices and friendly service. Parking in the multi-level garage behind the restaurant was affordable and convenient!

This restaurant is highly recommended by my husband, myself, and another couple who dined with us. Megalos has cosy seating. It is a restaurant with a lovely interior, terrific menu selection, and truly attentive service. Tonight, the restaurant was catering to a full crowd, including many going to a performance, next door, at The Grand Theatre. Service consistently outstanding! Megalos is ideal for all special dinner outings, and especially for 'special occasions'!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Kingston. I have serious dietary restrictions but know that I will have a depth of selection that is not seen at most restaurants and I know that the food will taste amazing every time. Alexa greets every guest with warmth and a smile and it feels like she is a family friend. I can literally say I have never had a bad meal or a bad experience at Megalos in the 5 years I have been eating there.

Good selection on table d’hote menu. Salad and soup were great. Chicken and steak were great. Dessert was disappointing. Wine by the glass selection too limited. Window seat was lovely but the maitre’d stood at his post like a statue staring in our direction most of the time. Overall good experience that was very close to being great.

If you're looking for a comfortable and casual meal with fam or friends, Megalos will do. Nothing fancy, nothing to write home about - but fine comfort food. An interesting mix of gentrified brick and beam with a 1970's Love Boat feel from the furniture and finishings ...

We were 6 on Saturday prior to see the show at the Grand (also an excellent venue) and all of us had a great meal. Funny part was I was sitting at the "head" of the table and the waitress took the orders ...all except mine and walked away. When I called her and told her she missed my order she was embarrassed but handled herself very well, was quick to make a joke and we all had a good laugh. Always a great restaurant with great staff.
