    We had an amazing server her name was Fiona. She was extremely helpful and attentive to us. We had 2 of our group who were celiac and she was knowledgeable as to what could be eaten on the menu. She went above and beyond when our daughters phone dropped down the side of our bench. She did not give up until it was found, which was not an easy task.

    $24-$25 for a half a palm size, dried up Milano chicken is too much to pay. My daughter ordered shrimp spaghetti for over $20 to receive 3 tiny pieces of shrimp on spaghetti. Food quality is not worth the $ paid.

    The fish ordered was way undercooked. It was sent back - came back out long after everyone was finished their meals. Manager never came over - no offer to discount meal or even offer a free desert. Very bad service!

    The service was nice. But the food wasn't worth the price in my opinion. For 24 dollars, I got a pretty mid carbonara with bits of bacon.

    Horrible salads. Tolerable pizza and tomato soup. Soggy bread served with margarine. Sticky tables. The word noisy doesn't do justice to the experience. No I wouldn't come back.

    We arrived at the time of our reservation (9pm. After a movie) and stood for a while at the sign which said 'Wait to be seated'. No one acknowledged us or even made eye contact. The restaurant was less than half full so it wasn't as if they were too busy. We tried to get someone's attention but everyone looked studiously away! After about ten minutes we just left. We have enjoyed East Side Marios before and were disappointed.

    I haven't been in a while, but it was very close to what I remembered. Probably the best garden salad of any chain, the bread is delicious. The one thing that seemed off was one member of the party's Hell's Kitchen Chicken. Although I am told it tasted good, it didn't look very appetizing. Overall, it was a very good experience and I will be back.

    Highchair was destroyed and a large price of wood was sticking out, could have hurt my baby if I didn’t see it. Waiter was useless, didn’t check on our table, placed a large dirty tray above our table on a ledge, no apology. Food was cold, undercooked and if they waiter would have returned we would have sent it back. The decor is falling apart everywhere. The whole place needs new management, Reno’s and a new staff. Quantity is the name here so don’t expect quality. Never going back

    We had a large party for lunch. Staff was very flexible in moving us from a booth to the main dining room by putting 3 tables together for us. Gluten free menu was much appreciated and a big plus for eating there next time. Attentive, accomodating service. Owner/manager came and checked with us to see if everything was good. Out table enjoyed pizza, spaghetti and meatballs, salads etc. Food was good and tasty. Tomato sauce was rich and flavorful. Prices have risen in these inflationary times, but we felt we received good value for what we ordered. Thank you for making our luch a success.

    I would like to specially thank the Manager of this branch as she was able to arrange an issue with our reservation in the middle of rush hour, with a long waiting list but with a customer service focus to honor the time of our reservation. It was a very special occasion for our family after being able to match agendas and very tight time window so it was critical for us being seated on time. She kept calm, apologized for the issue and immediately coordinated her team to set up a table for our group of 7 so the issue was not even noticed by my guests. Thanks again for the outstanding service and we will definitely go back soon.

    Had a fabulous time. Our waitress was super friendly, and made sure our waters were re-filled, and that we always had fresh bread and salad (unlimited, as part of our entrees). She knew exactly when to come by, and was super friendly and helpful. Food came by fresh and fast, and was very tasty. Portions were also great. It was my birthday, and the manager and our waitress brought the complimentary birthday dessert with a candle, and sang happy birthday. Had a lovely experience, and would definitely recommend!

    The poor kid that was serving a table of 12 had zero help. He wasn’t able to make it back and offer refills on drinks. Everyone was done their meals and and were just sitting waiting to be offered desert. The birthday was getting impatient waiting for her cake. Very friendly service and the food was good but a table of 12 people either needs 1 server with no other tables or some help from the rest of the staff to clear plates, check on drinks etc.

    Out server was very sweet, we really liked her. The drinks were so reasonably priced, I can’t remember the last time I got a Caesar for $7.50. We ordered the calamari al diavolo for an appetizer and while the flavour was there, it was way overdone and extremely chewy. I got the linguine amatriciana and again the flavour was good but the sauce was super watery and the chicken was mushy and disintegrating, it was kinda gross. My friend got the tomato soup which she enjoyed and she had the cheese cappelletti which had very little rosé sauce and almost no cheese. The Caesar salad was good. Likely won’t go back to this location again but I do have to say that the service was excellent.

    I am from out of town and have stopped going to East Side Mario's in my city due to how bad they were but tried in Oakville, ON when down for a hockey tournament. They were busy with hockey teams and very busy atmosphere but the staff were great and everything flowed smoothly. We did not have to wait for a table, food was delicious, and everything was way more than I have experienced back from my home town. Definitely will go again when down for hockey!

    It seems as if there’s a disconnect between OpenTable and Eastside’s. We arrived on time for our 5:30 pm reservation. Our table wasn’t ready, but the host went and cleared a table in satisfactory fashion. Also, we added to the reservation that it was our anniversary. That was ignored even though we also mentioned it to the host and server. The manager also knew because our adult daughter talked to the manager to try to pay for our meal. The manager had difficulty processing the payment (?), but he never came to the table to tell us our daughter’s intent. Worst of all, there were 6 staff members who continually came to the bar to “party” with a single patron. The noise was excessive and they clearly were ignoring other patrons. The food was quite good, so thankfully, our experience was not totally ruined.

    I really like coming to this East Side Mario’s. The staff is always attentive and go beyond. This night we were a group of 8 and never felt neglected. I saw the restaurant fill up soon after we were seated, and I know staffing was a bit short. I saw that all the staff helped each other make sure customers were taken care of.

    it was way too cold in the restaurant. We told the server but she said that's how it always is. To top it off we had a fly in our drink. And the server just apologized and asked if we want a new drink. It made me think that it happens regularly there.
