Service was haphazard. Tried to send back a flat softdrink, they brought us another soft drink, half filled. Table wS not cleared. The flat soft drink stayed on the table, untouched, for our entire dining experience.

It didn't disappoint. It's rather chilly outside. So the food actually cooled off quite fast. But it's still food fresh from the kitchen. We have to live and enjoy the best without indoor-dining until it is allowed again.

Super casual atmosphere, I only come here with friends when we want to pig out lol, the all you can eat salad and bread is absolutely delicious, drinks are great and super cheap, everything else on the menu is mediocre at best but worth it for the unlimited soup/salad/bread!! Definitely skip on the apps though, none of them are any good to be honest.

There was a couple late so things were backed up for 30 minutes. The GM and servers were very warm.
This was one of those times when food doesn't matter although it was fine.

It was pleasant. It was a little chilly so they had heated patios and that was much appreciated. The manager I think came and gave us more bread by asking us if we wanted more. He was very kind. It made coming back, nicer.

Fantastic experience all round. Server was attentive and friendly. Food came hot — large portions. Made a reservation and we were seated promptly at our reservation time. Tables were nicely spaced out. Excellent post-lockdown experience.

We sat on the patio and there were heaters, so that kept us warm and toasty. I noticed the staff cleaning and sanitizing the tables after each use. The food arrived hot and tasty.

My only complaint would be that the washrooms were filthy. Perhaps because of outdoor dining only they were hoping patrons would not use the washroom. But after being closed due to lockdown for 6 months, it seemed that the washrooms were not touched fo that long. The floors were sticky and the stalls dirty. I'm sure they had a hard time finding staff on such short notice but still bathrooms were gross.

The AYCE soup or pasta + loaf is the best. Of course ESM is famously known for their pastas and pizzas, yummy! It's a place of choice for a casual, work week night out with fam and friends.

Well after everything as of late, we were just wanting to get back to some familiarity. And eating out having some drinks on the patio sure sounds familiar. Three friends all essential workers finally a place to go and some time off. So we decided on East Side Mario’s. Made the 10pm reservation and shortly thereafter headed to the restaurant. Only to be rudely greeted and lied to. First we’re closed and we’ve or “they have tried to contact you”. Well no I had not missed a call a text or an email. So first mistake was having a 10 Pm time slot. Who’s mistake? Not sure but the way we were embarrassed by the waitress but apparently she knew we were the mistake reservation. If this was known let us sit for a drink a least. Many people on the patio. So at this point very unimpressed with both open table and east side Mario’s north York.

First time eating here. The servers were very polite. The frozen sangria was delicious and so was the bread. I ordered the chicken parm and while it wasn't bad it also wasn't the best I've had.

The calamari was ok, I would avoid the carbonara pasta but the pasta with the mushrooms and chicken was delicious. Not sure yet if I will be going back.

The spaghetti bolognaise I ordered did not have enough sauce and I had to ask for more. Same for my sister in-laws Rose sauce and my husband and nephews chicken parm pasta. It was not good tasting at all. Sad because it was not a busy night. There were 8 of us in total on March 6. Waitress was fine.
