    Food was decent but for a reservation day for Mother’s day, wait times was excessive and a bit of a turn off. It really took away from the experience.

    The service was great and the atmosphere was lovely. The food, however, was not great. We ordered the steak, which was likely a very nice piece of meat but the way it was prepared made it taste awful. I would not go back.

    Food is excellent, with very good presentation. Service staff are professional and top-notch. Have dined here twice this past year, and it's one of our favourite spots. My only gripe would be that the restaurant can be rather noisy at times. The covered outdoor patio seemed quieter, oddly enough, though it was a cool and rainy evening which likely accounted for fewer people in that area. Overall, highly recommend.

    The apps were good, however the mains were ok. My friend order one of the pastas with mushrooms and the mushrooms smelt off. The waitress also forgot to punch in one of our friends order. It took a really long time for our first drinks round of drinks to come out. I was so excited to try this place and have been dying to go for years. Sad to say I don’t think I would go back.

    Kenny was an amazing server. DJ was also great. Only issue was how long the food took. Sat down at 7:50 and did not finish everything up until 10:30- only ordered (all at once) beef tartare, 2 pastas, beef Wellington and fries. Empty tables around us, so not sure why it took so long. Tequila cocktail was delicious.

    I was looking forward to checking out Lapindou based on a couple of friends' recent experiences. Alas, I was more than underwhelmed. Our server paid scant attention to us and when she did, she seemed to have little enthusiasm for her job. After trying a couple of wines available by the glass I chose the one I wanted. I didn't get a full glass of my choice until I was well into my meal. The food was tasty - particularly the bread, olives and oysters -- but not as interesting as I'd expect from a Michelin recommended restaurant. Honestly, not sure I'll go back.
