A superb choice for dinner: No nonsense, quiet, friendly and competent service, outstanding presentation and preparation of courses. This is one of the rare establishments that provide supreme quality and hedonistic pleasure matter of fact.

Tip: The wine list is weak - bring and enjoy your own bottle for a modest corkage fee.

The service was amazing, food fantastic and the atmosphere as lovely as ever. Please keep continuing doing what you are doing and always have the butternut squash soup on the menu.

This one of our favourite local restaurants, have been going there since they opened, I can say that we have not had a bad experience there yet. The restaurant it self is understated yet stylish , the staff are well trained and informed, service is always excellent, and the food thoughtful and creative , always a great experience, and we have got to know the owner and I am sure if there was an issue he would correct it, days on front has always been an excellent experience for us , highly recommend it.

I have been going to your restaurant since it opened. I have sang it’s praises to many people. This was the first time that I went that my husband and I were both not impressed with our meals. I don’t know what changed but it was lacking in flavour and quality. Sorry hate writing bad reviews but we were very disappointed as was our company.

The restaurant itself was incredible. Nice quiet atmosphere, a little cramped but an outstanding experience. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and prepared. The service was impeccable, and the price of food was definitely worth every penny. 10/10 would recommend to everyone to try this restaurant

Incredible food and great service. The crab cakes are amazing, the scallops are amazing and the pork belly is amazing!!! We've had the steak and frites, the seared duck, the tuna, the pork tenderloin, the lamb, and the salmon special. The biggest "problem" is having to decide which delicious dish to have. Our complements to the Chef for every single thing on which we have had the pleasure of dining.

My only reason for not giving a 5 star accross the board was due to the scallop appetizer. It was tasty, however with just 3 tiny scallops I did not feel it was worth the price at $14.

I have lunched here for years. The service is always excellent, the ambiance lovely. However, the lunch menu has not changed in a very long time. There are very few GF options. It needs modernizing. The food was not particularly attractively presented, not usually an issue except the sloppy presentation does not reflect the price paid. The food was not even very tasty. In addition, the bathroom was not well looked after. The sign says air freshener is supplied by a certain company, when I picked up the can it was hairspray, lidless, with a gummed up sprayer. The table it was on rocked back and forth. Again, no big deal, but I feel DOF is an upscale place, and you expect better attention to detail. I fear maybe they are getting blase with their popularity and losing that edge that made it a special treat to go to. Sorry to say this.

We have eaten here several times, never disappointed. The mains were delicious and the food delivery pace was excellent, never felt rushed during each course. I did feel the Caesar salad had a touch too much dressing. The ambiance was comfortable and lighting was such that you felt you had your own space with your guests.

Very good high-end lunch, prices were not outrageous. The location is in a strip mall, so not ideal. The staff were welcoming and friendly. They knew about the menu and were able to provide recommendations.

Some old menu, food was okay. Good choice of appies. We will not hurry to go back, maybe they will change their menu. As usual the chef’s special was pan seared trout. Do appreciate keeping all wines under $40.

Deep fried cauliflower curry was amazing. We had the steak and duck. Both great meals. The quad chocolate cheesecake was nice and smooth. Looking forward to that dessert again. Maybe one each next time though. :)

Another delicious meal. We didn’t have a babysitter for our 5 month old so we made a Valentines Day reservation on the 13th and the earliest seating available. The staff we so accommodating and really made us feel welcome. We went all out and had 2 apps, 2 mains and dessert and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. We will be back :)

This was our first visit to Days on Front. We attended for my husband's birthday dinner with 10 other friends. The server was outstanding. She was calm, courteous and managed to do so much without even interrupting a conversation. Absolute professional. There was no problem with bringing a cake and she brought it out and then cut it for everyone, which I was not expecting. This restaurant was totally beyond what was expected. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was exactly what we love. We will be back!
