    We both had seafood and each dish was cooked perfectly. Lots of flavors and not overwhelmed with garlic. Service was well timed, courteous and responsive. Music and sound system were excellent. A relaxed and enjoyable meal.

    This was the most aweful restaurant experience I have ever had. Booked on open table arrived at 6:50 and were seated. There was only one other table there when we arrived. Ordered drinks drinks came and cocktails were good. Ordered shareable appetizers and mains around 7:20. At 7:40 the waitress asked if everyone at our table was over 19……we had two underaged 16 yr olds with us celebrating my 83 yr old mothers birthday. We were informed we would have to leave by 8:30 as they had a lounge licence not a restaurant licence and they would try their best to get our food order out quickly. Nowhere on the open table reservation did it state they were anything other than a restaurant . I showed this to the waitress and said we were very disappointed that it took 50 minutes before we were informed ….. the experience went down hill from there after the manager came over to mansplain the licensing system in NL. He then said our orders had been moved ahead of those for the bar downstairs and we wouldn’t be rushed …..then within 5 minutes main courses started to show up. We hadn’t gotten our appetizers and so we had to cancel those. In their rush to get the food out they brought out two duck dishes that had been ordered medium but were cooked rare to medium rare. The duck was cut so it was sent back and not reordered. The lobster and shrimp paste was ok although the lobster was a bit tough. The cod dish with risotto was excellent. We then left without ordering dessert and we were not asked if we wanted dessert. But then again it was 8:20. The restaurant was still empty…..I can see why! Absolutely terrible. We should have left at 7:40 when we were informed but we assumed with so few people there that our appies were ready and everything else would happen after that. We were now in a bind without a reservation on Saturday night. We didn’t realize the busy bar downstairs was sharing the kitchen. The listing in open table should have clearly stated LOUNGE no minors after 8:30.

    Hands down, one of the best dinners of my life. We were a party of 4, seated at one of the hightop tables for about 3 hours trying almost everything on the menu – and it was all amazing. Service at Loose Tie has always been fantastic for us, and this evening was no exception. Truly a wonderful evening, and I'm happy to highly recommend Loose Tie to anyone looking for an incredible menu that's unlike any other in the city. It's a great little spot, a real gem in downtown St. John's.

    It’s not very often that we would walk out of a restaurant. Waiting 1 1/4 hours for your entree, we think, justified our decision. It was our 1st dinner in St.John’s. What a disappointment. We ordered drinks and an appetizer (calamari) which was delicious I might add. The server was pleasant and efficient and then, we waited and waited. Our reservation was at 7:00 pm and we finally walked out after paying for the 1st course and drinks after 8:30. Apparently as I read in another review (after the fact) they share the kitchen with the pub downstairs which gets priority. On top of this, the ambiance was uninviting. We are experienced diners and this was one of our worst experiences and embarrassing for us. No one ever wants to walk out of a restaurant so it was done after much conversation between the two of us. Read the reviews before you choose a restaurant!

    Loose Tie deserves to be far better known. The food is superb. I've eaten there five times over the last year and never had a bad dish. I can't say the same for far better known high end restaurants. This time my wife and I both had the special. It was Brome Lake duck, with a beautiful cook and a wonderful sauce. Our son had a pasta dish and was equally happy. Our waitress was knowledgable, attentive and very professional. Highly recommended!

    We visited on a Thursday evening and had reservations. It was a slow evening and we were the only ones at the time. Service right from the beginning was excellent, the server was quite knowledgeable all the menu items. Our food order was taken promptly and our wine order as well. While we waited for our apps, we enjoyed a chat over our wine. Our apps (one was the Garlic Prawns and the other was Seared Atlantic Scallops) arrived in due order, they were well presented, and you could tell, they were quite hot. Taste, oh my, these apps were fantastic with interesting combination of ingredients and flavours. For our entrees, we both had the Roast Cod. It wasn't what we had in mind, but we certainly weren't disappointed either. Well presented and well prepared. Again, the ingredients and flavours were just simply superb and we enjoyed the entrees immensely. This is a dish worthy of visitors to the province. We ended our meal with some cappuccino and shared a piece of Coconut Cake. This was made in house, and was absolutely delicious. My spouse wanted to buy the whole cake. Overall, a great meal with excellent service. The only negative was that the music was just a bit loud considering the number of people. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning.

    Their food and cocktail menu is reduced from what you see posted online. Staff didn’t highlight what items were sold out or their daily specials until asked. Beef Tenderloin had gristle. Moose Bolognese was very tasty. Music way too loud for dinner. Waited 45minutes for entree.

    Had a great meal, although on first take, the menu seemed unspectacular. Specials for the day included a halibut ceviche which we ordered and was exceptional. Terrific flavors with jalapeño slices and tomatoes with tortilla chips. Also enjoyed the heirloom tomato salad...perfectly fresh lettuce etc...melted in my mouth. The seared ahi tuna baguette was also very good, though the baguette was extremely hard, and as such we ate only the innerds. Slightly disappointing but nothing to complain about. Service provided by Shauna (not sure of spelling) was courteous and enjoyable. We will return once the vaccine passports are obsolete!
