    First impressions were that it was beautiful space and great vibe! However the service was painfully slow. It took a long time to get our drinks and even then they were the same drink but one was filled way more and were different colors. At the end to pay the bill we waited almost 40 mins to get the bill and then to pay it. It was obvious we were ready to go and had our wallets on the table for quite some time. There seemed to only be 1 waitress who was making drinks at bar, taking orders and ringing through bills. It was a Saturday night but not too busy so not sure the holdup. We noticed some of the other staff around also drinking/eating as well which is totally fine but maybe need another waitress to accommodate everyone in a timely matter next time.

    We really enjoyed the food and the lounge entertainment but were disappointed that the singer's 20 minute break turned out to be nearly 60 minutes.

    Overall a nice experience. Food was great. Lounge service was great. Restaurant service disappeared. We sat for 30 minutes without anyone dropping off menus or offering us a glass of wine. Finally we were able to catch someone. They were very apologetic and got us sorted. Would have meant a lot if they offered a glass of wine to make up for the first 30 minutes without service. But food was good and my friend and I still had a good visit. I will give it another try in the future.

    While I enjoyed the ambiance of this restaurant, including the lovely piano playing with accompanying singer, other aspects were disappointing. Some of the food was good, such as our calamari appetizer, however a number of other items lacked seasoning. When the manager had asked how our meal was going, we indicated that our other appetizer lacked flavour and he said he would take it off our bill, however he failed to do so. Our service was also quite slow, taking three hours to get through our meal, where I finally flagged down someone in order to get a bill. To top off the evening, upon return to our vehicle we had a $65 ticket. This was rather unexpected given that we had advised the concierge upon arrival where we had parked and were told it would be ok. He failed to advise we needed to register our vehicle and there was no signage indicating such in the parkade. Overall, would not return.

    A really enjoyable evening with top quality entertainment, service, food and drink. Thank you. A cozy spot for an elegant evening. Could still converse during music, though I preferred to listen to the gifted performers. Thanks for giving us such a lovely evening spot in the suburbs

    Our reservation wasn’t ready when we got there, we were sat at a 4 top & then moved when they actually looked and saw the reservation was for 6. Service seemed a bit disorganized but our server was extremely friendly & looked after us. Food was tasty.

    First time to Headquarters, and it won’t be the last! I tasted the aranciata balls, beet salad and short rib - all were delicious. Our server was very attentive and the manager stopped by a couple of times to check in and make sure everything was fine. The ambiance was lovely and the live music was perfect. Overall, a great experience - thank you!

    It was our first time here. The food and service were excellent. The manager came by to ask how everything was, which was lovely. Will definitely be back and refer to my friends and family. I also think it would be a great venue for a Christmas party or wedding reception.

    The ambiance was perfect, the food was very good, and the service was friendly. BUUUUT... the portions were inconsistent. Two of the 4 of us ordered tenderloin. The portion I was served was barely 3 oz, while a 13 year old boy was given a portion that was easily 6 oz. As it’s a pricy cut of beef and our meals cost the same, it is not appropriate for you to serve such inconsistent sizes, especially at the same table! And while the service was friendly, it was scattered. I can overlook that the server was not knowledgeable about the wine list, as she may have been new. Then, after dinner, I ordered a cappuccino but was told 10 min later that the machine was broken. So I ordered a coffee, which took another 5 min to get to me. It wasn’t busy in the restaurant and after waiting 10 min for a cappuccino that couldn’t be made, a coffee should have been served much faster. We weren’t in a rush when we arrived, but had mentioned we had 90 min to dine. Leading up to the time we had to leave, we couldn’t track down the server. Once we did, I asked for the bill and machine at the same time because it was now becoming urgent for us to leave. 5 min later, she brought the bill without the requested machine. I had to ask for it again. She disappeared for another 10 min. We later saw her crossing the dining room far away from us with machine in hand, but she made no attempt to come back to us with an explanation. We eventually had to walk to the kitchen to ask the manager to send the server and machine to our table. Turns out, she was running around looking for receipt tape all this time. Shouldn’t this be something sorted out ahead of the Saturday night dining crowd? It made us late for our next engagement when we had specifically made (and showed up for) our Headquarters reservations with plenty of dining time built in to avoid being rushed at the end. I believe in supporting local and will dine here again, but if the experience doesn’t change, it will be my last visit.

    The food is mediocre at best. Overpriced and steak tasted as if it came right out of the freezer. Bartender put a margarita in a martini glass and it tasted awful. Also did not know how to make a dry gin martini - Instead, mixed it with lime juice and the glass had ice cubes in it with a lime wedge on the rim. Not enough bartending education to prepare basic cocktails. There were only 5 tables in the restaurant at the time and service was slow. This was my second time and I will not return.

    This new place is on the ground floor of the Journeys retirement home. It looks decent upon entering but the food was not great - had a fancy cafeteria feel about it. The service was not great either - we did go on a long weekend and they are newer so maybe they are having some staffing problems and working through starting up. A nice place if your visiting someone in the building I guess, but definitely not up to the same or similar scale as Chairmans (the other new place in these buildings).

    Great choice for a business dinner in the south end of the city. A little confusing to find it’s location with all the construction. Also confusing is the parking situation. There are payment kiosks outside the restaurant but I think you can get validated parking underground - this was not clearly explained anywhere on signage, or the website.

    It's getting better all the time, as the song goes. Now, they just need to get the menu right. Originally set up as a "bistro" (whatever that means), the other residents we speak to all want more pub-style dishes. The "bistro"portions are small, as befits the tapas crowd, but with full size entree pricing. Still some work to do, hopefully the management will go outside the scope of their well heeled friends and ask what real folks want to eat. Menu needs to be larger in scope, as after you've been their 3 times you're exhausted your choices. Great wine list, need to adjust the prices.

    We went to Headquarters to celebrate my Mother’s birthday. Party of 7 including a couple kids. The restaurant is beautiful! We were seated by the manager, who was nice but not the friendliest considering the industry. Our server was very friendly and easy to chat with! The only thing that she missed was refilling our drinks and/or asking if we would like another. Our food sadly was just “ok”. The blackened chicken lacked flavour but the vegetables were well seasoned. The salmon was good but overcooked. The braised pork tasted very good and pretty much melted in your mouth but, the baby potatoes were burnt and the 1/4 of the pork was just fat. An accompanying vegetable (ie. carrots, broccoli, etc) would have been nice. The fois de veau was ok. The kids’ meals were thoroughly enjoyed (chicken fingers and fries and fish and chips). I must say the fries were perfection! The cheesecake was delicious! The molten lava cake with a birthday candle, was a nice touch for the birthday lady, and it was also enjoyed. I don’t know if we will try them again for dinner so, I can’t recommend them.

    Restaurant service good, however we waited 20 minutes for drinks in the lounge before being seated for dinner. Bartender seemed confused, not sure how to make drinks. Did not seem to be a designated server so she served and poured drinks....it was busy so she could have used more help. Hope they sort this out.

    I had a reservation for 12:30PM and when I arrived, took them 15 minutes to set up our table. When they finally set it up, they had us at a high table and told them that will not work with my 3- year old so they moved us to a booth. Cost $50 for a brunch with mimosa/sangria, which was a little pricey, I thought. Food was ok. When we finished, we waited for the server to come and give us the bill but didn't come so I had to grab a different server to get us our bill (this one was nice). The location is nice and quiet, smelled great! Feels classy. I just found the service (or the server we had) and the food ok... Probably will not return. I booked my reservation through opentable. Yesterday, I got an e-mail saying that the restaurant cancelled my reservation, which was strange because I was there and honoured it. Good thing opentable was nice enough to give me my credit.

    We wanted somewhere classy and different to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary, and I can gladly say this place did not disappoint at all!! Great service Fantastic relaxed ambience The Furnishing is very tasteful and the fit and finish perfectly done. Excellent selection of wines and fine Whisky’s from all over the world. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Live classy music on the weekends too Finally the south east gets a classy place to go and relax with your better half. Highly recommend the Headquarters Restaurant....... we shall return for sure.
