    Everything was very mediocre. Our hostess brought us to our table only to let us know our server is on break and no one will help us for at least 10 minutes. We found that announcement quite odd. The food was fine, but for the price they’re charging for each dish, it was subpar. The decor was eye-catching, there was live music, the ambience was nice. It had a dim, art-deco vibe. Our server and his service was fine. But overall, would not come back.

    I ordered the digby scallops and it was delicious. The 3 other people in my party ordered the three course prime rib. The onion soup was fair, the yorkshire was very hard, the quality of beef was good but barely enough gravy and it wasn't that good. The mashed potatoes were ok. The dessert was excellent. My husband didn't eat the potatoes and the other gentleman ate 1/3 of his main course of prime rib.

    Many dishes display a small amount of food at anytime. This discourages customers to take an even adequate amount. Pineapple slices should have peeled skins. Worst part is the food tables were cleaned out starting about 30 minutes before close time and completely disappeared at 10.45am ie. 15 minutes before close.

    I booked a table with a note requesting a more private booth because it was to celebrate my partners birthday. When we arrived they said they didn't have a booth and sat us in the middle of the restaurant even though it wasn't busy. I thought maybe the host or server would acknowledge that this was for a birthday but no one said anything. I even mentioned it to the host when we were told we couldn't get the table we requested. Overall the service was good and the drinks were nice but it just lacked that special touch you get from other restaurants we have been to in the past for celebrations.

    Ambiance was good. It took way too long to order, we had to ask several times to order. the live music was too loud. The waitress opened the wine with the cork broken. The cork got in the wine bottle. Not a service

    This whole experience was disappointing for what was being charged. Crepes were soggy (no waffles as advertised), scrambled eggs, no waffles, no cereals, bacon was cold, the restaurant was freezing. It was average at best. You’re better off going to a restaurant that offers a la carte. Would not recommend Staff was great though and service was top notch.

No bread or baguette to go with cheese or cold cut but rest of the food was excellent, our server was amazing thank you

    My friend who ordered the $60 prime rib was prime gristle. I don't know what it was but it did not feel like an expensive piece of meat. My roasted cod with a small piece that looked like it was floating in a bowl of soup. Ask for bread $14 for a loaf of sweet bread. Didn't exactly hit the spot. Price wasn't the issue. Service was terrible. I don't know what was wrong with the waiter but he was abrupt quick. Just not friendly at all. Slow. No real interaction. Just what do you want? Okay let me get it. Just quick the bus girl. This Japanese girl who delivered the food was the highlight. She was actually sweet, kind and very pleasant. But the waiter something was wrong with that guy. He was not happy at all to be there to that time and I thought maybe it was just us but he seemed to give off that attitude to the table beside us as well. You think a restaurant at the Fairmont Hotel would have top service and top food but it was the opposite. Definitely never go there again
