The place is nice, the service excellent and the food was good except for the salmon, the salmon wes well done but had a lot of spices and made it sometimes hot.
The service was fantastic! The food was average. My friend had the pasta which was quite tasteless. Very bland. I had the PhadThai which was delicious. The calamari was delicious but again, the edename was bland. Wine list was good and the prices overall were fine.
Overall I may head back for the calamari and possibly try another dish, but I won’t rush back.
Service was extremely prompt and quick. The greeters at front desk were polite to welcome us in and on our exit as well. Food was excellent. Washrooms were clean and plenty of them. Menu was nice. Drinks were great. Can’t ask for more!
Great food and ambience. Server was slow. Prices were reasonable and good location.
Food was delicious and service was excellent. It was a little bit loud but we would request a quieter spot next time when booking due to one of us being hearing impaired.
My father and I were in town for a concert, and decided to go here for dinner, it was excellent!
It was an outstanding performance from the cooks and wait staff.
I will definitely be back.
The cod special was dry and terrible for $38
The waiter was amazing
Always get the best tables at restaurants when booking with Open Table.
Great food . Lots of options for all diets . Good prices for what you’re getting.
My sister and I went for dinner after seeing a show. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
The fish and chips were very tasty. The coleslaw was way too salty - we drank lots of water after the meal
Everything else was perfect
Angelo our waiter was fabulous. First time at this restaurant. What a great experience. Love the variety on the menu and the baked cheesecake was the best desert ever!!
Love love love the Souper Bowl promo. Have tried them twice - first time spiced lentil soup with charred chicken shawarma and second time clam and haddock chowder with cheese biscuits . Very generous portion and absolutely delicious - very filling and gratifying! I urge that they make it a regular menu item.
We were dinging pre-Raptor game so a bit in a rush, but all was quick and a pleasant outing overall.
Food was very good and reasonably priced. Highly recommend!
Great for a crowd and perfect location for a Méridien Centre show.
The food is over-priced relative to quality. Steak was slightly over-seasoned (very salty) and plating lacked finesse. Looked “slapped together”. Table setting also lacked any effort, was not a welcoming table to arrive or, felt like a cafeteria. Also, when a meal for two with just one glass of wine each costs almost $200, don’t make me reuse my appetizer cutlery for my main. Remove the cutlery and give me a fresh set! Disgusting.
Great service, prompt and friendly. Always impressed how we're asked if we're going to a show or game and at what time we need to be on our way out. Thanks! Food was great and got exactly what we wanted - thank you so much for the booth! Really appreciate it!
I ordered a beef burger and took a couple of bites only to realize that it was still raw ground beef. I looked down at the plate and there was blood. The host took it back and the manager came by immediately. They probably realized the health risk that this kitchen error posed. I hope I don’t get sick/ecoli from this.
My friend ordered a bowl with medium steak, however, it came out dry and charred.
We thought it would be a great place to grab a quick healthy bite before a show, however, that wasn’t the case. It took over an hour for raw and charred food to be ready.
While the meal was terrible, the host was friendly and tried to make things right. The manager came by offered a complimentary appetizer and comped the order.
Mac And cheese with chicken was bland and fish and chips were greasy :(
This restaurant has done better in the past
Great food with friendly service. Just needs more seating in 2’s instead of banquet seating.
The waiter was extremely rude. Mentioned that the tip is not included in the bill and when asked a question he could have been more straightforward but was impolite instead.
Had a great time. Amazing food and service. Took some guests from out of town and they loved it!!
Valentine’s Day menu was ok
Awesome restaurant! Had a great time with my date, food was delicious
The waiter was rushing us. It was crazy. He was hovering around every half a second.
Asking how everything is after I have put one forkful in my mouth is annoying and disruptive.
Very irritating when I am with a client and talking business, and there are many empty seats in the restaurant, there was no need for the waiter to rush us out.
Food and service are generally quite good. We were seated in the main room instead of the west room and it was WAY too noisy. Not an enjoyable experience on that front. Also, my pad thai was okay, but aside from big chunks of tofu it was bland. Other visits have been more enjoyable both in terms of ambiance and food quality. But I'll come back - better luck next time.
Food was better than anticipated!
It was our first time here and was pleasantly pleased with the service and food. We now know where to have dinner before we catch a show at the meridian. So convenient!!
The only bad thing I need to say , was we felt the cold draft every time the front door was opened.
Definitely we will come back. Thanks
Great service! Ran out of chicken wings and Peroni - next time!
We were going to the show across the street so convenience was perfect. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The place has a lot of energy’s
Always a great meal before a show or a game. The menu is full of very tempting offerings. Our waiter seemed unfriendly, maybe it was a bad day. The food was seasoned and the temperature was wonderful.
Great food and good value. Very attractive restaurant that is handy to the theatre and Scotiabank arena.
Great location for attending games. Food and service both good
Service was a little slow at the beginning - but there were some large groups around us - service improved over the course of the lunch - overall great food & service.
Place was only about 25% full yet service was slow and waiter inattentive.
We hit the restaurant on a quiet night so noise level was minimal. Food was very good and service was excellent. Really like the 1/2 price bottles of wine.
Got to the location just before 6pm. There are happy hour drinks that we enjoyed. The super bowls made for a really nice light dinner, which tasted great. This location does not do winterlicious but has other promotions which actually worked out better! Its a regular destination that i really enjoy.
Excellent food and the service was perfect. Very friendly and helpful
