    The food was good and they have a great selection of drinks. Our server was lovely as well and attentive. However - the two hostesses were not great. They seated us over 20mins later than our reservation and they weren’t very well organized or attentive.

    We had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday. Rachel was our waitress and was incredibly attentive. A few other staff members also helped out and everyone was in a great mood. A World Cup game was on so the atmosphere was energetic but not overly noisy. Food was enjoyed by my entire family. Everyone commented that we will definitely return. Many thanks!

    The hostess / door attendant was very friendly. We were early for our reservation but didn't wait long. The chicken wings were excellent! The onion rings were crisp and the service was attentive but not overbearing. We have been here several times and it has never disappointed. We will be back again.

    I was pleased that my request to be seated at a regular table was granted. The bar type stools aren't comfortable for me at all. And I was pleased that the man on the desk came and checked that we were happy with the change.

    Great location for a pre theatre lunch. Weds has a special $15 pasta menu 1/2 price on bottles of wine. Unfortunately many of the wines were not available which left a very limited choice.

    Our reservation was in order and we got seated almost immediately. Food was good although prices have risen. The background music was far too loud making it almost impossible to have a conversation.

    We visited this restaurant for the first time. My friend had the club sandwich on marble rye with sweet potato fries and she really enjoyed it. I ordered the signature chicken sandwich with regular fries. It was ok. The fries were fresh. The sandwich was a good size but some of the edges of the chicken were a bit charred. I ate it but I didn’t find it particularly pleasing. We both had the tiramisu for dessert and it was excellent. Service was very good. I would return but I would try something else for an entree. By the way, the music was fairly loud but we could still converse fine. However, for some, it might be too loud.

    We had a wonderful evening at Fox on John. We were seated in the back (library area) which was perfect as we wanted a more intimate setting for our party. Lots to catch up on, so this was so nice. Our server was great, attentive, polite, interesting and patient. I ate the salmon, spectacular. At one point, the music did get quite loud and we could no longer hear ourselves talk. We politely asked if the server if anything could be done. Within a brief time, the speaker above us had been turned off and we were able to continue with our visit. It was an excellent evening.

    Food was basic. Started with mozza sticks which were nothing special. Seemed frozen. Club sandwich was ok. Seafood pasta was just bland and nothing exciting. The place is bumping and has an elegant pre-game vibe to the place with DJ, cool decor, dimmed lights and fancy furniture. Overall you pay for the ambience and not the food. Go for drinks and skip the food!

    We had a reservation for 8people at 11:45 and were promptly seated. Our server was attentive and answered our questions. It started out awesome. Unfortunately the music level began to increase. We asked to have it turned down and they did accommodate.... but it increased shortly after. Then the volume was turned way up for the soccer game... And it was impossible to talk across the table. We were seated on the raised platform at the back so maybe that was a factor.... But the people in my group said they would not return unless it was patio weather.

    Had a great chicken and pasta dish. Delicious yesterday and leftovers today were awesome! Cesear salad was one of the best and I bring that to your attention as it seems the lettuce has been off for months at most restaurants this year so that was a nice treat. Next time I’d book my dinner at a non-couch seating arrangement. If it were late at night, the restaurant was quiet and we were getting cozy with a drink and dessert the couch would be perfect. Burgers were MASSIVE, fries were great and the wings were a big hit too. The outdoor fire pits looked pretty cool and for a Wednesday night it was packed with happy people so clearly it’s a great heat source on these crisp evenings. You’ve done it again!! Love this place. See you soon.

    This establishment is touted as a "Modern British Restaurant" and "Alehouse" It is not. It is trying to be a nightclub with tables and good food. Yes, the food was amazing, but when the music of the DJ is so loud, and the base so high that it is distorting the speakers and drowning out all other sound, the quality of the food stops being a factor. On a Tuesday night at 6PM I did not expect to spend that much money on a dinner where I had to yell and repeat my order for the waitress to hear me, and not be able to talk to my wife sitting across the table from me. I watched as other patrons were holding their hands to their ears to try and here the people they were with, others yelling to be heard, it was horrible. If you want to be a nightclub, advertise as that and people like me who want to be able to have a conversation over dinner will not waste our time coming to your establishment. If you want to be a restaurant turn the volume down so we can at least communicate without using sign language and not leave with a pounding headache.

    I had a great time with my friends at this restaurant, food and drinks were delicious, and prices were reasonable. I had a reservation for 10 on the patio and got seated in a dome of sorts which gave us considerable privacy, and I’m sure helped others with the noise from us, too. Service was a bit slow but it was a Saturday evening so it’s understandable. Overall, very satisfied without reservation and would definitely return again!
