    We booked this restaurant mainly due to the convenience of being in the Bell Centre, as we were there for a concert. We expected, since it was in the venue, that it would be a bit overpriced, but we read the menu ahead of time and thought we had a fairly good idea of prices etc....it looked fair, so we booked it. However, when we got there we were told it was a "fixed price" menu of $45pp ...we had a choice of two appetizers (caesar salad or soup), choice of three entrees (chicken parm, beef tortellin, mushroom risotto) and choice two desserts (tiramisu or vanilla mousse). Very disappointing menu. We placed our order as well as a glass of wine. The salads came out lightning fast...the wine not so fast....it was obvious they wanted us in and out in , my guess, 30 minutes! Bottom line, the food was average...service was okay...you are paying for the location and convenience....just beware and don't be fooled if you are their for an event....fixed price...call ahead...limited menu...tag line "oh well, we are here, might as well try and enjoy it!"

    We chose this restaurant after reviewing the menu on line. There was no communication until after we sat down that the menu was only a prix fixe menu which was very limited. The meal we had planned prior to the concert was very different than the meal we were made to order. Very misleading!

    For a place that was pre concert with small resonance menu. Still took over 90 min and concert had started. Not impressed. Food was ok but not worth the$$$ even post Covid prices. Place nice waiter tried. Cesar good and cold other dishes fair. Was trying something fancier for my birthday. Credit card said ouch quality price.

    Le menu n’a pas beaucoup de choix et c’est très cher pour ce qui est offert! Le cuisinier avait oublié la boulette dans le hamburger à mon ami et les calmars frits n’étaient pas très bon.

    Très déçu que le serveur s'octroie 20% de pourboire, en plus sur le montant total AVEC les taxes. Au final, ça représente plus de 25%. Très très déçu. C'était ma dernière visite. On travail tous très fort pour gagner nos $. Il me semble que c'est à moi d'évaluer le montant du pourboire, par rapport au service reçu.

    Nous avons pris une entrée de fromage, certains fromages étaient secs, les raisins n’étaient pas frais et tout cela pour 25$. Lorsque c’est bon c’est pas cher, cependant très déçu. Par la suite nous avons pris un burger, toujours 25$ par assiette, c’était moyen donc c’était la dernière fois que nous allions à ce resto.

    As a customer who has the chance to eat at the restaurant for at least 50% of the games, I feel that I can say the following with relative certainty. In general, the ambiance and service are very good. As with all restaurants certain servers are better than others so I have learned to always reserve in the section of the same server. Being seated in the back section a few times next to the order computer and busboy tray, It has happened a few times that waiters have actually thrown utensils into the bin from at least 5 feet away which is something that you would not normally see in this category of establishment. I also realize that the service is carried out in a very condenced period which is why the menu is so limited. However, the food is not amazing. The pasta is usually a little pasty (over cooked), the cheese in the poutine is melted and warm when it should be in chunks and kept cold until added to the dish (Like Belle Pro). The burger is usually good from season to season and the parm fries are a nice touch but not for every one. The meet balls this year are very good but the lettuce sticks with ceasar dressing are just a lazy approach to what could be a decent ceasar salad. The cheese & Charcuteries platters are also good, I would even say more so that some of the main dishes but it is not enough to be an actual meal. The Margherita is usually under cooked (doughy) and there is often way to much cheese. I have never tried the steak because it seems like an expensive experiment. I wouldn't want to pay $39 and have it not be perfect. I have never had the wings either. It feels like the two deserts have been the same for a few seasons now and yet deserts (cheese cakes, pies, etc) can easily be kept frozen for longer periods this minimizing waste & adding to selection. Drinks are super expensive. I would recommend but not just to anyone. I like to eat inhouse, hassle free and I'm not to picky. Would not recommend to someone who checks quality vs value.

    The service was extremely good and fast. The meals was really good, but we don’t find that there was a lot of choice on the menu. We would have like to have more choices like usual.

    Very convenient and accessible. Food was ok but the convenience comes at a cost since everything seemed a very pricey. All in all, we were ok with that to avoid the confusion running around before the game and standing in line.

    Worst place ever! The food was terrible. Not fresh at all. From the first to the last service, everything we tasted was disgusting. My wife and I were going to see a concert right after. Because of what we ate, we were sick all evening long. Because of the pandemic, we’ve been 2 years without seeing a show. We were so excited. But because of this awful place, it ruined our night….DO NOT go there…EVER

    We were told that we needed to have desert appetizer and a main menu for 35$. If we took only a the main menu we still had to pay 35 so we needed to get the 3 plates. Then, we get our checks and we get billed 10$ per dessert?? But we were pressured into getting a dessert and that it would fit into the 35$. This totally ruined our dinner. Also we were eating our appetizer and the waitress came in with our main and we had to eat it right away we had not finished our appetizer… I understand we are rushed for time but still let us keep our plate we felt pressured… I came here two years ago and it was not like that at all we had a plurality of choice food wise.. not this time 3 main course, 2 dessert choice and 2 appetizers choice.. the menu online was not updated from before therefore big surprise when we arrived it sucked because I wanted to have what I had had last time. Therefore you should update the menu online For the convenience and the taste I would recommend the place but service and price is to work on
