    Irene. Celebrate the beauty of every living moment.....and a $200 meal that at best was worth $100. Avoid.

    Irene exceeded expectations. I booked reservations there a bit on a whim and I am so glad I tried it out! Amazing waterfront restaurant with a huge patio and beautiful interior. Food was fanstastic and so were the cocktails. Coming from Waterloo where even the worst restaurants charge you an arm and a leg, I was left blow away by the value. Having never been here before, I'm not sure if it's a hidden gem or just a gem!

    The staff provided us with impeccable service for our small group. The food was stellar and satisfied our cravings for smash burgers and a juicy fried chicken that well balanced with a light slaw that hit all the right notes for me. The patio lakeview of Lake Ontario was the cherry on top.

    No happy hour menu although website says 3pm until close, they sat us in the shade and told us we can't sit in the sun because there was another group of people with reservation eben though I also had reservation. Some fries were salty and some were undercooked ...not the best value for the prices. Ambience was OK!

    Came on a Sunday afternoon for the patio and it was clear they were slammed and nobody was communicating to one another. Our server was so kind and it is no fault of his own as I could tell he was trying his best but management should be a lot more clear on staying on top of their servers during a transition as it took about 10 mins to be greeted and then another 20 mins to receive water. I was brought to a dirty table and the person who walked me over was nice enough to change the entire table because there was food and drink spilled everywhere since nobody had cleared it. Also even though he changed the table there was still spilled drink on the concrete under us which wasn’t pleasant and I just got dirty vibes, not the most hospitable welcome. I would’ve liked to be offered a different table because it was near the back as well given the circumstances of the situation. Food and drink took forever but it was decent, the tuna nachos I suggest you fry it into individual pieces as it came out in one big square with toppings where we had to break it off which we did not expect and it also made it really awkward and messier than it should have been to eat.

    We had a reservation and were seated right away. It took over 15 minutes to be acknowledged after that. Drink orders went in and were served promptly. We ordered appetizers. When they arrived, one was nothing close to what we ordered. Took another 10 minutes to get the correct one. The food itself was very good. We then ordered entrees. Once again, one of them was wrong. The wrong one, the Irene salad, was mostly bagged lettuce. Hardly any cheese or anything else for that matter. After I had started eating it, I realized none of the items or the the correct dressing was on it. I had ordered the chopped salad. Didn’t want to wait even longer so we just got the check. The server took off a whole $3.00 for the mistake. $18 for a pile of greens? The restaurant has beautiful views and a huge outdoor patio. Maybe a different server would have made it a better experience.
