    The Sunday Brunch with Miss Moco is my favourite thing to do one a Sunday. Vibes, service, food and drinks. Everything is great.

    What a fun time during the Drag Brunch at the Melody Bar. Miss Moco is outstanding fun. She was sure to interact with every table evenbefore she started her show and she remembered names and gave shout-outs to the "celebrations" in the room. Her humour kept things light and her performance was full of life and energy - not to mention she looked incredible! The service and food were great, as were the drinks... be sure to get the mimosa package!

    We went for Drag Brunch at the Melody bar and had a great time. Miss Moço and guest were entertaining and engaging. The staff was really helpful and navigated very graciously an issue with our reservation. The hollandaise of the eggs benny was super yummy.

    We attended the Sunday drag brunch and, overall, had a fantastic time! The drag show was very entertaining and fun. Unfortunately our brunch arrived luke warm / cold but the show was about to begin so we didn't bother trying to flag down the busy servers. I would definitely come again - but likely order brunch after the initial rush!

    Went early in the evening since I was going to a show later - great staff, delicious food, amazing drinks! Great ambiance. Would like to go back when it gets busy later in the evening. Only downside is no wheelchair accessible bathrooms.

    Wow! That was a lot of fun! The show was great, especially the STAR ! Talk about giving it all! My only regret was not having much actual cash on me for tips! Next time will know to come with fistfuls of 5 s! Food was good, service excellent. Only a few small suggestions……fresh orange juice, more comfortable chairs . The entertainment was great, could have done without the guest performer Baby Bel Bel was not up to snuff. Also perhaps a tighter show, it got a little sloppy and a bit too long. Overall highly recommended!

    Making a reservation was useless. When we arrived all the tables were full. The teammate told me that she was unaware of our reservation. They did find a garden table and chairs from another part of the hotel for us to sit at. It was quite awkward as we were now blocking other guests from getting out of thier seat. I mean they did create a table for us, but when the employee explained what happened, she told me that they are supposed to get a report and nothing came to them. Reservations are pretty useless.

    The drag show as GREAT. The food and service were both absolutely horrid. Our server did not ever come to our table unless we waved frantically. Whether we needed to order (drinks, food), a coffee top up, condiments, or our bill, we needed to get our server's attention. The food itself was cold, our bread was not toasted (three of us ordered avocado toast and the bread was soggy). Come for the show, just don't come hungry.

    Really enjoyed the drag brunch, entertainment was great! Food and service was mediocre. Making changes to our reservation required three unanswered emails, and three phone calls. We were able to finally adjust the reservation after begging concierge to look at our reservation. Unfortunately there is no telephone access to the bar.

    We were seated at 8:15pm on a Saturday night. Once we sat down, someone let us know that there was a wedding happening as well and if we could get our food order in right away we wouldn’t have to wait because the kitchen had to focus on the wedding. So we ordered right away except two of our party members were running slightly late so they couldn’t order their food until 8:45pm. It would have been nice if the restaurant told us the wedding was happening in advance so that we could have had an idea of what we would like to eat instead of being rushed to order. After we put in our food order, service was pretty slow. No one asked us for drinks until I asked myself. Empty shot glasses sat on the table for 30 min. It eventually got a bit better as the night went on. I booked this reservation because I really enjoy live music and there was a band playing. They started off with an “acoustic” set and moved into harder rock later in the evening. Even the acoustic set was super loud. When the plugged in set came on, it was unbearable. You could not hear what anyone was saying. I understand that the band is putting on a performance and want everyone to hear them, however this was way too much. You could hear the music perfectly outside across the street. Melody bar has the potential to be great, however they need to fix a few issues.

    I love all the Programming at Gladstone House and Melody Bar. Drinks are just fine but the food is consistently terrible!! Chicken and waffles have no taste, wings were undercooked, potatoes with the breakfast were hard (undercooked). I keep thinking I was there on an off day, but no. It’s everytime we go the food is bad
