We loved it! Our server was so great
It was our anniversary, and we had an amazing dinner.
Great food, great ambiance, superb service. Will definitely go back
The meal was very good. Our waiter was excellent. We would definitely come back.
Terrible. Only one server on. Slow service. Was told they ‘didn’t expect 58 people for lunch on a Friday’, but we had made a reservation. Waited 45 min to order. Waited another 30 to get food.
It wasn't busy but our service was slow. Our waiter was busy visiting with co-workers rather than waiting tables. Love the good here so would definately go back. Just hope we don't get the same waiter.
This was my first visit to Open Sesame and I really enjoyed being there. It was comfortable, relaxing and a new approach to dining. I'd definitely go back there.
The value is not really there.
The stir fry bar is hit and miss. Suggestions for food and sauce pairings would be useful. The ability to sample the sauces would also be helpful.
Great service and the “Go stir crazy” was delicious. We had calamari and green beans to start and both were very disappointing. Especially the calamari which was four very large pieces of deep fried squid... green beans were drowning in sauce. regardless - really enjoyed our experience and will be back
I had a few picky eaters so this was the perfect place. It was also half price wine bottles which is amazing!
Great food! Never been before, portion size was huge! I am not one to expand my dinner choices so was pleasantly surprised on what was offered and served! Thanks so much!
Prices have gone up while selection of veggies for stir fry has reduced in both quality and quantity.
Food was prompt and cooked nicely. Chef very friendly.
We dined with my child. Server did not give her a glass of water, a bowl/plate, a place setting, or a fortune cookie at the end of the meal (brought 4 for our group of 5). Why not even acknowledge one of the people at the table?? She eats too.
The pork dish was at least 50% fat. Service was somewhat slow, considering that the restaurant wasn’t full. However, since it was a birthday celebration, it was very nice and appreciated to receive the complimentary dessert.
Thanksgiving time with family
Great experience as always! Fantastic service, and uncrowded beautiful dining area.
Nice to hear the music again. Meal was great, as usual. Nice to be seated by the fire!
the food was, as always .delicious. But the restaurant seemed to be very short staffed as we waited 1 1/2 hours for our food to finally arrive.
We were very disappointed with the Restaurant. I have been there many times. I am not sure if we would go back. I took 2 other people, whom were both new to the restaurant. First off we asked for 3 different types of wine and they had not one of them from the wine list. Then they brought us one to which we did not ask for. The waiter was terrible and was not informative and giving us every excuse in the book. The manager was very inexperienced and did not take our complaint seriously. We we spent good money. I was very disappointed as I kept on saying how great Open Sesame was. It was the opposite. The manager told us they were changing suppliers for the wine etc. They were doing it for the other 2 restaurants also in the same building. How ever the waiter told us this has been going on for 4 months. So why would you not change the wine menu etc. The food came back dry, cold etc. We were there 3 weeks ago last Thursday. Not impressed at all. They really could not have cared less.
Great option for a cheap and quick meal! The veggies could be a little more fresh
my granddaughter and I enjoyed her 21st Birthday, it was great but martini I thought was expensive!
Our serve4 was fabulous and the ambiance was great 👍
Delicious create your own stir fry. Went there for a birthday and the free dessert was a frozen banana ice cream dish that was absolutely delectable! Very friendly staff and beautiful decor.
However the meal took more than an hour to make after we gave order to cooks.abd some of the items we requested were not available. When weadkedfirhot water garnishes etc they were late in coming(15)mins. It was my wife's Birthday and we had taken 4 friends who had never been there.
Needless to say we were embarrased.
I was very disappointed overall .
When I brought my issue to manager.i was told the kitchen got backed up.but at 730pm when we ordered the restaurant was half empty.
Dont know if I will ever return again.
I have been going for more than 10 years and the last 2 visits gave been horrible.
I hope they improve.
I have been to this restaurant five times and continue to go back because of their make your own stir fry option. It has never disappointed me!
Server was good . But my and my friends bowl were exchanged. I have corn allergies so luckily I saw corn inside and told this is not mine . And me and my friend exchange it . But if I dint notice and ate it would have had great problems.
Usher couldn’t figure out how to seat folks as they came in. Server took too much time
Lovely, food is always dependably good. Service was good, but we spilled a drink and though the server brought over new napkins, there was no offer to clean the table. No offers to refill water or hot water....not huge issues but would have been nice.
It was great fun and great food
We requested a booth for our anniversary, when seated we were told there were no booths available. We were sat at a half booth, which was alright. The server was very friendly and funny but very slow. Drinks took ages. Our second round of drinks was ordered before our dinner and came out when we were done eating. We were given a free anniversary dessert which was very thoughtful! The slow service did make an otherwise great meal somewhat disappointing. We love Open Sesame though and we will be back.
The food was great, as usual. And we like that it was piping hot.
I found the food over-sauced. Appetizer and entree were drowning in sauce. I've never seen mu shou pork or kung pao chicken quite like it.
Such a great go to! We love this restaurant
Ruslan was a fantastic server. Very attentive and funny. We will return because of his customer service. Restaurant was very clean and enjoyable.
The only downfall was the veggies were not stocked at the stir fry bar. There were no string peas, broccoli and a few other things were very low. We waited a few minutes to see if more was being brought out but gave up and filled our bowls with other things
Service was slow, my bowl was over cooked, only 4 shrimp in my bowl instead of 6 and they were tiny (was told 6 large shrimp), and was way too dark to see the menu and I’m not old! Website still says $13/bowl but actually $15 now. I was there years ago and loved it but was underwhelmed this time.
First time to Open Sesame and it was an enjoyable experience. I like the build your own stir-fry component.
The beef was very tuff. Rather ruined the dish. Our waiter was excellent.
Food was very good. Desserts were amazing. The only thing I would say is that the server was very chatty and that delayed the service. He was very nice but spent a lot of time discussing items that weren't related to dinner. The website stated that we had a two hour window to eat, however we were over the time due to this chatter. I would recommend the restaurant however.
I chose Open Sesame for my birthday dinner because I wanted to try somewhere new. Though dark and slightly dated the interior is very cool and I felt special getting to sit at a private table located up some stairs. As the night wore on I grew more grateful for this because there were screaming children everywhere, ones that even came up to our private table and were trying to opening the emergency exit.
Our server was great from the moment we walked in the door, he was very accommodating and personable and was definitely the best part of the evening.
We were a party of 8 and I believe everyone else at the table really enjoyed their food, I did not however. I was the only one who chose to make my own stir-fry, I choose steak and noodles and then chose a variety of vegetables that I enjoy and topped it off with sauce (teriyaki garlic). I was really excited when it arrived on my plate, it looked good, smelled good, but boy it did not taste good. The steak was hardly passable as beef in my opinion and the vegetables were undercooked all tasted fishy, with no fish on my plate this was concerning. The noodles were at least edible so I just tried to stick with those as much as possible.
If you do go here I'd recommend probably sticking to the plates that are already made, but I learned my lesson not to try new places on your birthday.
Favourite restaurant for family meals and special occasions, fantastic food, great prices, amazing service!
Had lunch with a friend and it was the first time there for both of us. The server was welcoming and explained everything.
The meal was absolutely delicious and the service fantastic. I will be returning with my husband very soon.
