    We had reservations for 3:45 for 4 people. One celebrating a birthday that wasn’t mentioned. By 4:05 we had our drinks, bread, salad and main course on the table. We never had time to eat and enjoy our salad before the main course was coming all in 20 minutes I was so upset with the service. All the food could not fit on the table. I spoke with the manager and she asked if I wanted to take my meal home! No, I came out to eat. I cancelled my meal my party ate theirs. We were finished and home by 5pm. Our plan was to enjoy a dinner our! Which we did not! We were all disappointed. I did call head office!

    Excellent choice for family dinning, good value, loved that you can build your own pasta, pizza dishes. All-you-can-eat salad was very good, warm fresh bread, and steaming hot pasta. All in all it is a great dinning experience... as they keep up this standard of care and provide a good product, we will always come back for more good food with abundant choices. Cheers, Kim

    Our server tried her best but the restaurant, as usual, was very understaffed. We made a reservation for five people and were seated at a table for four. There were lots of bigger tables but they were filled with dirty dishes. When we asked to be moved because we just couldn't fit, it seemed like a really big deal. There was a lot of complaining from staff about being understaffed, as if it were our fault and told us several times that we had to wait for them to wash silverware to give us. Everything was super slow. It was a very disappointing experience and I am not sure what the point of making a reservation if they didn't have space or utensils for us.

    The food was sub-par. The meatballs seemed over cooked. The salmon meal was dry. The calzone was too doughy. There seems to be less attention on the meals. ESM used have better food. Service was good - the girls were very nice and did their best. There was a kid in the next booth making noise and acting up but it’s a family restaurant. Food was the concern. My wife said she won’t be going back there for a while now.

    Usually a good experience. Not last night. Original server took our order and was never seen again. All got our drinks, then one of us got our food, then a gap of 15 minutes that no one came to the table. Drinks empty, still no food for the other 2 customers. Went to find a server and asked if anyone knows where my server or food was as only one person got their food. Was told "that's because pasta comes out first", but that food that arrived was not even pasta (incorrect excuse instead of apology). Eventually got the rest of meals and drinks I refills, food was "ok".

    They couldn’t find our reservation and it was sad because last year they had it nicely set up for our grandchildrens birthday. This time it was a scramble to get us a table. I’ve never had this happened before but the server was so inattentive. We had two, two year olds and it took her 30 minutes to come back after we finished our meals. We were waiting for dessert to celebrate their birthdays or else would have stood up and got bill. We were there for almost two hours and really only waited 15 minutes for food. So lots of waiting with impatient two year olds. Uggghhh

    It was definitely good but the salad was very soggy. When I asked for a new salad they brought me one with fresh lettuce but didnt have enough dressing that it was dry. But overall it was good and I'll be back for sure.

    We were seated right away but it took our server a bit to come and get our drink order. Overall the food was good but my chicken parm was over cooked. Deep fried too long so the edges were burnt. Bread was fresh out of the over and tasty. My boyfriend enjoyed his Hell's Kitchen chicken but commented that the portions seem to get smaller every time we go. Everyone was super friendly and we'll gladly go back.

    The service was good the quality of food poor. It was cold,and pasta was overcooked. I had to resend it back. we were not offered any more salad or home loaf,and we did not want to ask,as it felt as we were intruding. I was disappointed as we were looking forward to this visit,as it was our first time out since the COVID-19. This was also a birthday supper for my wife,who didn't get the good dining experience we have gotten in the past. I normally would recommend East Side Mario's to others,but this was not a good experience.
