New Years Eve. We always enjoy the tasting menus on New Years. They did a great job of serving a well paced and relaxed meal. Great service! A great neighborhood gem.

Have always enjoyed going to Loondocks!
Our granddaughter in Australia hopes the restaurant will still be here whenever they can once again travel to Canada. Her older sister and dad missed out in 2019.

A number of the dishes were surpisingly good. A great place to go if you are looking for extremely well execulted food with proper blance, and a bit of flare to make it fun and interesting. House ceaser was not for me, strong even for this espesso & scotch drinker. All other items were excellent. The highlight was the carpaccio, and don't skip the salads.

Really lovely meal. Food was prepared to perfection. The Arctic Char fillet was fresh and the vegetable delectable. My lunch partner have the vegan Croquettes and she was delighted.
The chef has a light hand and the service was excellent. They were very accommodating for a few dietary quirks of ours.
Absolutely recommend this restaurant.

Extremely pleased overall, service was fantastic, atmosphere quite appealing, food was delicious, only missing a green with the entree veggies, this is something very important on my plate so other patrons would likely not comment on this. Thank you staff

We chose Loondocks for our anniversary dinner. We started with the soup of the day (beef barley) and a caesar salad, both were fantastic.
I had the halibut and it was perfectly cooked! I substituted the side of squash for fingerling potatoes - delicious! My husband always had the gnocchi with beef tips, it's his favourite and never disappoints. We are so lucky to have this restaurant in our neighbourhood. We plan to visit often.

I have a hearing issue, must remember to ask for a table distanced from others. My experience was somewhat spoiled yesterday because the noise level at the table behind me made it hard for me to hear the conversation at our table.

As always, the food and service was top notch and I will definitely recommend Loondocks to others.

The service was perfect , for me. Some people may like more check ins from the serving staff, but I prefer a more relaxed style. Really really enjoyable meal and the best we've had in years.

The menu is limited, but we were dining with four people and we were all very impressed with the quality of the food! The prices may look a little steep, but the amazing food makes it well worth it.
Although modern and clean, the ambiance seemed a little lacking in warmth.
Still, I would not hesitate to recommend Loondocks to anyone who appreciates a high-quality meal.

You must try the smoked Canadian bison carpaccio. It was absolutely delicious! That was followed by the Yukon Artic char filet. Melts in your mouth! For dessert was the crème brûlée. I could’ve eaten 5 of them!!! Definitely a restaurant to try out.

This is our favourite place for special occasions. It was the first time here for our dining companions and they agreed Loondocks was a great choice. We particularly appreciated that the background music was, just that, in the background. The meal was excellent as always and our server, Thomas, was a fun person and looked after us very well.
