    Excellent meal. The pork chop was delicious. It should be added to the menu on a more regular basis. Great wine. Manager was helpful in providing purchase options. The service was efficient, helpful and friendly.

    The portion sizes received were quite small and we felt that the price we paid didn't feel right. My dad ordered the chowder soup, which came in a bowl that was very hard to eat from and there was only about a cup and a half of it. Then I ordered the club sandwich with fries and Caesar salad splits and received less than a Cup of both!!! We ended up going somewhere else afterwards since we were not full.

    The food was excellent but the ambience was not good - far too bright for a good restaurant and the noise level was annoying - appears to be little to buffer the sound.

    We went in for brunch, expecting the wonderful buffet that they had in the past. Unfortunately, over COVID they took out the buffet, but the brunch page did not reflect that was the case. Regardless, the brunch menu looked to be fairly appetizing. We ordered the classic eggs benedict, as this is our go-to and favorite breakfast item. To say it was bland is an understatement. As a chef, I was appalled. In all the years I've had, and made hollandaise, I simply do not understand how that degree of lack of flavor went under anyone's radar. If you put that eggs benedict and a piece of cardboard next to each other, the cardboard would have made your palate sing. Oh, and the english muffin was burnt for both of our benedicts. So, the blandness combined with that lovely lingering char flavor meant all you tasted was burnt bread. Kudos for making your own english muffins. Just don't burn them. That said, the eggs were poached perfectly. But the hollandaise? Wow. Someone needs to get a lesson on how to make one properly.

    Perspectives Restaurant and Options Jazz LoungeResponded on November 4, 2022Good day WestendChef, Thank you for choosing the Brookstreet Hotel, and taking the time to provide us your feedback regarding your brunch experience. Our apologies that the hollandaise on your eggs benedict was lacking in flavour, and that the english muffin was over toasted. We will be sure to share this feedback with our culinary team so it can be addressed. Best wishes and we hope to see you again in the future!

    If I could give our waiter 10 stars I would. He was sincerely excellent. He was attentive but not intrusive. A real ninja. The food was excellent and well presented. The live jazz was wonderful, although at times a little loud. It was my birthday and I was treated well. Overall an awesome first birthday experience. (We tend to celebrate for a week or two around our birthdays).

    This restaurant was disappointing. It seems the only seasoning the chef is familiar with is salt and plenty of it. Streak was tough and service slow. Decor is dated. One of our party did enjoy the salad though.

    Great jazz, great service, horrible food. For the price, food should be much better quality and made from scratch. Gnocchi seemed store bought, as did fries and guacamole. Not great flavours. Servers were very kind and accommodating and very good jazz. Just don’t expect a good quality meal.

    Service needs to be review. Not warm and not welcoming at all. No real presence but rushing service instead. Table and sofa wasn’t well cleaned as it used to be. This is not our first experience at Perspectives, and it looks like after the pandemic the standard level for service and spotless environment went low. I truly believe this Perspectives needs to go back to its high standards (employees and service).

    Quiet visit to Perspecitves for an early Friday lunch. Beautiful menu choices. Great burger with creative and complementary garnishes. Crispy salty breaded fries and probably the best ceasar salad I’ve ever had (delicious dressing, smoked cubes of pork belly(?) and crispy romaine - perfect). The burger patty wasn’t superb, and the bun was a bit dry but really overall delicious. Had the lemon lavender crème brûlée for dessert - I was expecting more fruit from the description. The dessert itself was delicious, creamy and just the right amount of lemon. The lavender was a bit shy in the mix. The top was just slightly overdone, but again, delicious overall and a lovely flavour combination. Service was fast, server available and friendly. Great lunch!

    I ordered the same meal fou weeks earlier and the quality was inferior this time. Last time, my lobster roll had huge chunks of lobster meat in it and this time there wasn’t/. The presentation was not the same. The lobster roll looked like mush packed into a hot dog bun. I was very disappointed. I had suggested the restaurant and lobster roll to my friend and felt terrible about the meal. At least the wine was good!

    Shrimp cocktail appetizer was very good. We enjoyed the homemade cocktail sauce. Pea soup appetizer was good,. but under seasoned. Steak dinners were not as enjoyable. Both were over done, and a little tough. The server was very good and attentive. However at the entrance to the restaurant we were greeted by a sign that stated we had to walk over to the jazz bar to find someone to seat us. That does not leave a very good first impression

    Two of our group of 6 ordered steaks (medium rare). Both came cooked well done and were sent back. Replacement steaks came and were both medium to well done and smaller than the first two. I refused mine and my son ate a third of his. Unbelievable and unacceptable that a restaurant of this status couldn't cook steaks to order.

    Enjoyed sitting on the patio for supper this time since we’ve eaten in the main restaurant and the jazz lounge before. Great outdoor patio and fun watching young children enjoying the hotel pool. Our guests enjoyed their meals. I had the strip loin which was ok but not as good as the last time. Lots of fat. That was really the only partial negative to a fun evening.
