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.
Great food and great location/ atmosphere!
It was like sitting in a wind tunnel as both the front windows and rear of the patio were opem. The temperature outside was 17C, however with the "wind chill" it felt more like 10C.
Food was average and expensive.
Will Not be returning!
The price is a little steep for the food we ordered. I asked for a refill of hot water and I was surprised that the waitress took my cup instead of giving me a new one. It made me uncomfortable especially we are still in a pandemic. I understand QR code but I have reservations in using it for contact management and reading menu. The restaurant didn't provide a paper menu but a QR Code label on the table.
Seafood restaurant with old seafood 🤷🏻♀️
Server seemed disinterested, and brought the cheque before I was even finished my dessert. and came back for payment before while I was still eating my dessert. When asked if I could get a slice of tomato on my Cove burger, he said you don’t have any tomatoes. What kind of place serves burgers without tomato and lettuce? He also took forever to come back with ketchup and vinegar, which we had to ask for. It was not offered.
A beautiful location, delicious lunch and super friendly staff that were helpful for guiding us through the tracing protocol. We would definitely return to enjoy all things Cove. 👍👍
Excellent food and fast, friendly service.
Great day, great place to go to & have a bite with friends.
Food was good. Service excellent. View amazing. Good time. Highly recommend
The Cove Restaurant is a favourite spot. The atmosphere, food and service is exceptional!
Nice dinner in their open air restaurant. Would definitely go again.
Great views, service and food. Prices were fair too. Will be back !
We had wanted to try this place foe some time as it always looked so inviting. The atmosphere was lovely but the menu was limited and when the food arrived it was rather bland and dry. I ordered the seafood Mac and cheese and the scallops were the size of peas and dried out. Not at all cheesy.
Good food. Nice ambiance and value. Will return for sure.
Great place to meet, have lunch or dinner or just for drinks. The patio is awesome and very well suited for the new COVID restrictions.
The staff is friendly and helpful.
Food was amazing!
Many of the items that were selected were not on the menu including a substitute for the wine. We should have been told this when handed the menus. We thought a long time over it and when we selected we were told it was not available. It should have been explained what was missing beforehand. Also the mention of an allergy did not fully explain our guest’s concern. Her choice was changed due to an explanation of a possible cross contamination of mussel juice. Service was slow and the portion size was extremely small for the mac and cheese with negligible seafood content and the coleslaw on the fish and chips was very skimpy. We have eaten twice at Cove this summer and the first time last month was enjoyable but this time was very unsatisfactory and we shall not come again with poor food and poor service.
Great, friendly service. Food was delicious!
Best burger I have had in long time! Great patio vibe!!
Was a very relaxing and peaceful ambiance food was good
Excellent food & service. Though we were quite happy with our entrees, note that their dinner menu is quite slim - not many choices.
very nice place, had a good feel and servers were very nice
Not enough appies to share. A lot of breaded things. Pub like.
Kale salad is great. Salmon was bland.
Inability to provide a varied menu - simple changes only required. Not providing items such as bread and a spread or oil, or having un-breaded chicken.
Soup was thin and unappetizing and we won't be returning, it is a pity because it was our first time there, and in a prime location.
Mains are served on an eight inch plate means you don't get much to eat Apps are also small. Yes food prices have gone up but not to the extent of the menu price increase. Remember only 20 to 25% of the cost is the good. Guess they are trying to make up for the Covid shut down. Will not he going back.
Nice place, feels like you’re on holidays, need better food
Great food and service. Nice patio and lots of parking in the back of restaurant.
I do not think the phones work. I tried to call however was put on hold for 10 minutes one time, and was never able to get through another time.
Can’t beat the view and the food snd staff were great!
The place is super cute and I loved the ambience, however the food let something to be desired. A salmon burger and seared salmon was ordered.
The salmon patty itself was mediocre but the addition of oranges as garnish was actually very yum. The salmon and the broth of the seared salmon was phenomenal however the bockchoy was raw and the greens didn’t go well with the salmon at all.
The food took a while to come too.
The food was really not great—all 4 dishes. I had an important meeting here and I was so embarrassed by the food that we received. You’ve got a prime location, and sometimes the food is good—other times apparently not so. Do better, and be more consistent.
Loved the ambiance.
Very gritty mussels and the salmon dish was not good at all - the veggies were barely cooked and so dirty/old we had to send the dish back only to get more of the same but cleaner. The kids' fish and chips was very greasy too. We won't be going back there in a hurry.
