We enjoyed a lovely, relaxing time at Personas. The food was excellent. The Salmon was a good size and perfectly cooked. The Jambalaya was nice and spicy. I would definitely recommend this.

Excellent value, especially brunch. Friendly competent service bit slow: probably aren’t hiring enough people for days like Mother’s Day. But we will return.

Pleasant environment and a friendly waitress. Food was a little slow in coming and it was evident it had been sitting out awhile as it was cold when it arrived. Had a 2 for 1 coupon, though, so can't complain!

I was a bit disappointed with the table at first but we managed to talk our our eay into another , if we promised to leave by 7:30 , No problem we were finished before then.

I thought my steak was much tastier when I had been there in feb. Also veg were not hot. But all in all we had a nice dinner. Thank you.

The dancing was superb except that it was not enough space. The waiter was terrible and not attentive at all. We were a group of 10 women for a birthday and had to wait for wine and water for at least 15 min and could only hope for a refill at some point during the night, even though all our glasses were empty. The special occasion was not recognized

I brought my co-workers here for our belated Christmas Party. I go to Personsas often, so I knew what the food and atmosphere would be like. I'm happy to say that they were all very happy with the food, service and experience. Especially my boss, who paid the bill was very happy!

We had a lovely booth close to the dance floor. Dr Stangelove is one of our favourite bands! The fettucini with Prawns and scallops was delicious! I am quite particular about my martinis and Sally got it just right! She was fabulous and her attentiveness to our every need made our Christmas dinner so special and fun! Overall an excellent night out of dining and dancing!

The service was slow. We waited 1 hour for appetizers. Any drink I ordered they didn't have. And it took forever to get a drink. That was the same with dessert. When we ordered whatever they did have for dessert, it took 45 minutes to get that. While waiting for dessert, we were asked if we can share our table with another 4 people. Which was uncomfortable. We didn't even finish our meal. I've been there before many times and this was very disappointing. My friends and I will definately not go there again. It was better a couple of years ago. Ever since then its gone down hill, and I've been there 4 times since then. This was the worst.

Having a band after dinner was great. Unfortunately the menu did not specify all ingredients in a sandwich we ordered and someone had alkergies to one of the items. The waitress seemed annoyed by this and after too long of a dialogue she took it back but informed us it would be a long wait for another one, we thought this was unprofessional and not helpful.
We then decided to speak to the management who did apologize and send a round of drinks. We were still charged for the sandwich which we didn't agree with and by the time it arrived we were not hungry anymore.

Good food. Service was great until it got busy but we expect that as it turns into more of a night club. Band was ok. Not great like some of the bands we have seen here

While the patio was beautiful, the rest of the evening was not. It took ten minutes to get a drink menu and another 20 to get our order taken. The drinks we ordered were sour, and not what was in the menu and when we sent them back and ordered different ones, each time our waiter came to tell us they were out. At 5:30 pm.
We ordered a seared tuna salad, sushi tacos and wok squid. The tuna was overcooked and tough, the tuna in the sushi tacos tasted and looked like canned, and the squid was 95% batter. The only saving grace was the sambal to dip it in.
We were charged for the drinks we sent back and no discount was given after we told them the food, drinks and wait times were not satisfactory. I would not return here.

We had a lovely dinner celebrating a birthday. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. Unfortunately I forgot about the playoffs for hockey and basketball. All the TV's were on, and most of the patrons were there to watch the games, so it was quite noisy.

We would choose the restaurant again however we'd make sure it was a quieter sports night.

The food portion suddenly smaller today - just enough today as we had a special afternoon tea event after that. The chef (who may be new) missed to put the fruits (as listed in the menu) on the plate. Luckily the good server quickly fixed it for us. Highly appreciated.
