The food was good but the value is not.
$21 for 8 small pieces of calamari was an issue for us.
While we understand the supply chain problems, it does not explain some of the pricing.
Excellent food ! Quiet due to COVID 😢
Another pleasant time spent there.
Always excellent food and fast, friendly service! Would definitely recommend!
All was good EXCEPT that the restaurant FAILED to WARN us that their patio window mechanism was BROKEN and those windows could NOT be completly closed so the patio was a little CHILLIER than it should have been, in spite of the electrical heaters.
Hopefully that will be fixed next time we show up.
I would recommend this restaurant to everyone! It is exceptional!
Everything was great but it was freezing.. I don’t know if the heat was broken or just not turned on. They had tiny heaters and they didn’t do much
The seafood linguini was amazing, it was spicy and flavored really well. The first order of empanadas was still a bit frozen on the inside but they were really helpful and brought us another batch which was great. Our waitress, Robin, was very helpful.
Great food selections for a full dinner or just something lighter. Especially love the Cove Caesar salad. And Thursday is best because all bottles of wine are half price!
Food is good I will like to see more options of dishes, it’s very loud inside not for couples best for groups I couldn’t hear my partner. Maybe more intimate
Outstanding food and service!
Service was fantastic. Great atmosphere. Food was very good. There was a large retirement party beside us that was quite loud. We didn’t mind at all, they were having fun. The staff apologized and offered to move us if we wanted to. Great night.
Service was terrific, appetizers were very tasty, mains were good (Mac and Cheese portion size was a bit small, salmon was a bit overdone)
The food was very good. As was the service. Dining room was a bit noisy for my liking.
Was nice and toasty on the enclosed “outside” patio with the infrared heaters on.
Two of us tried a new dish….BBQ chicken, it was awesome. Everyone enjoyed their meals.
Had a most delightful with good friends. The food was delicious and the service was very good. We were there for about two hours and enjoyed ourselves!
Fantastic meal with great ambiance. Service was also great. Definitely recommend.
Always excellent food and service!
Jayden, our server was so lovely and patient with us!
Food was delicious. Nice view of the harbour. Great service.
Outstanding food and friendly, attentive staff.
Great food & service! Some of the best seafood I ever had! Service was great too! Would go back again & again!
Excellent, friendly service and great food!
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. There was literally no one in the restaurant and when my husband and I finally got our meals after waiting forever the inside was cold. And then on top of that our drinks were gross. The only thing that was even half decent was there fries. I didn’t even want to stay but my husband and I felt bad that they had only 5 customers in the entire restaurant. Us and a group of 3, so we stayed.
Nice atmosphere and service. Good meal, and attentive wait staff. Will go again.
Great place, for the most part the food was excellent with the exception of the octupus dish. Only 1 small to medium octopus tentacle very over cooked and looked terrible.
Oysters were excellent and large.
Calamari was excellent but the portion size was terrible.
Poke bowl was great, a lot of filler unfortunately.
Carrot cheesecake was excellent and portion size was adequate for a dessert.
Old fashion cocktail was perfect, not many places can make a good one without screwing it up.
Overall I probably will go back as the atmosphere was great and I do want to try other dishes, hopefully they will surprise me as I had hi expectations for this place and for the most part it was mediocre.
The noise level was such that we could not carry on a conversation. There were only 4 at our table.
Great food and superior service!
We were seated in the outdoor portion which was freezing with the large window open (I understand it’s a COVID thing). But we noticed there were people dining inside with all that lovely warmth. We are both double vaxxed with documentation and would have gladly provided it to be able to sit indoors, but the host who seated us did not present us with that option.
Everything was great!
Added bonus sitting beside Frankie Flowers!
There was a bit of a cool draft flowing in but the food was good, the waitress attentive and whatever music was playing did not interfere with our conversation. We had a pleasant time there.
Appetizers quite expensive. Need more healthy options (grilled calarmari e.g.) on menu.
Lovely setting overlooking the harbour, nice service, indifferent food
Love this place - casual outdoor across Bronte harbour. Sylvie is the best server ever! Calamari amazing. My friends had the steak w salad & loved theirs. Usually we love everything but this time I tried a new item on the menu (Jerk Swordfish which replaced a favourite “Blackened Catfish”). Sadly The swordfish was dry & didn’t have enough Jerk flavour (we’ve been to the islands & know Jerk seasoning). They brought me more of the mango pineapple salsa which helped with the dry texture. Overall a wonderful relaxing lunch! Thank you Sylvie!
Once again as always, a perfect night out at The Cove!
When I ordered my kale salad I asked if I could add grilled chicken. The server explained that they don't have grilled chicken but suggested shrimp as an alternative, to which I complied. The salad arrived with 3 small not very thawed shrimp - and $10 was added to the bill for those 3 miserable shrimp! When I complained to the server, she said she would "pass my comments along". A fat lot of good that did me - I will not return, nor bring friends as I did on this occasion - all for the lack of initiative to consider my complaint and rectify it.
Great relaxed place for lunch or dinner! Great atmosphere and great food.
The service was friendly and prompt without being rushed. The ambiance was excellent- reminscent of Europe with people strolling by, music in the background and lights on the outdoor tables. Lovely casual outdoor dining.
The steak and fries were delicious.
Clam chowder was great. Calamari cooked to perfection.
Very good mussels and the beetzpacho was delicious…..very refreshing.
Great ambiance. Good food. Nice view of the water front.
