The food on the Tropikal menu was very good and the cocktails were all excellent, my fav was the rum punch. The TV's can be distracting if you're not there to watch the game. We are looking forward to going back again for the food and drink.

Overall food was good but service was disappointing. All
Food showed up late at the same time appetizers and main. It also showed up after 2 other tables that ordered after us. Server confused drink orders twice for my gf and never came back to follow up. I only had one beer because she never came
Back.

Terrific, second visit. Both times our “pandemic reopening” meal.

Great flexibility as we arranged 30 minutes earlier arrival (an hour ahead of reservation) & super seating.

Maddie was a terrific server, very knowledgeable about the menu & double checking the beer choice inventory for me.

Minor snafu with the kitchen was well handled with apologies by many and visit to table from Justin, the manager. All very well handled.

(side note: I like it when there is a problem with a business - how it is resolved speaks volumes about the business and my relationship)

Wonderful dinner all around & looking to visit next as lead in to a RedBlacks game!

I would of given a better review if our party was able to be close to each other. I called to indicate my situation. They did say that they would try to accommodate my two reservations but unfortunately it didn't happen. I was a little disappointed with that since I had made the request and they knew that we were coming. Other than that, it was great. I am a little disappointed since it was a special event for my daughter.

I booked a reservation on open table for 8 pm, there were options for 8:30 also. When I went to the restaurant I was told they closed at 8 and I couldn’t eat there.

We had a great time at Crust &Crate at Lansdowne. Excellent food and friendly service - the place was also very clean and the tables were spaced appropriately - we felt very safe and had a lovely meal :)

This restaurant is bending over backwards to comply with public health guidelines, which we appreciated. We were outside (mid-October) and it was not too cold because it was a sunny midday meal, but the patio heaters were on and effective. The food was fine - interesting pizzas, good fish and chips and fish tacos. Our server was efficient and pleasant. Reasonable prices. A good choice for outdoor dining right now.

Took reservation for outdoor seating, only to be told upon arrival that there is no outdoor seating available and to move indoors. Inquired how long the wait is for outdoor, was told 15-20 minutes. Actually took 35-40 minutes. We couldn’t get seating for other restaurants nearby either as there were line ups everywhere. By the time we got to order it was 930pm, an hour later than we had planned for. Before we even received our food, was told kitchen was closing and to order all our drinks/food. Our waitress was pleasant but had to ask for water three times before it was brought to the table. The host didn’t seem to care much and was unapologetic about the whole thing. Why take a specific reservation if it can’t be fulfilled? Food was decent but overall experience was subpar. Not one to write long reviews but we were celebrating two birthdays and it was just a disappointing evening overall.

Great place and atmosphere. Been here many times. We all had pizza and they are remarkable. Service, someone must have called in sick or something since it took over 30 to get our food. Unfortunate since service was fine on previous visits. Thankfully the food and atmosphere outweighed service in this visit.

We arrived a few minutes early and ordered drinks and then scanned the menu and placed an order for 2 of their designer pizzas.. We chatted for quite a while until my wife ran out of wine and said " Wonder where the Pizzas are?" It had been an hour! Very shortly after a manager appeared to apologize and say that somewhere our order was lost/missed and were now in the oven and the meal would be complimentary as a result. He also offered an appetizer and another round of drinks. By his "taking ownership" and admitting their error he has kept two long time clients , who live closer to the new Findlay Creek location ,very happy. The food and ambience are always good and mistakes will happen but they were first rate at taking credit

The burger was great- nice touch with the fried pickle. They are very receptive to ingredient changes. Salad side had a visually pleasing array of fresh cut veggies on a decent portion of lettuce. The only thing of concern was that most of the diners entered without masks. I will be inquiring about this problem that was prevalent at Lansdowne.

This place is NOT sanitary and just doesn't give a crap. They provided no crayons for the children meanwhile other places like Milestones do. Is it that difficult to spend 50cents on crayons that children can keep? Also, the table had pizza sauce stains on it and it was not sanitized when we sat down. No placemats, not even paper ones. Furthermore, the napkins had blonde waitress hairs on them. Although the pizza was good, I didn't feel this place was clean at all and will gladly go to Moxies or Milestones or even Joey's for better food and service.
