    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).

    I didn’t have any food however I watched the quality and size of the portions being served and they all looked amazing. I had to give a number because the program did not have N/A selection. The ambience was great and the musician’s entertaining.

    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.

    A special occasion (for which we got a dessert) but the steak was tough. However it was changed for another main course without question. Having said that the Brookstreet remains a special place.

    Miss the buffet, which was what we thought we were going for. We made a reservation but were told we couldn't be seated until time even though there were lots of empty tables. Food was okay. - fairly standard hotel fare with smaller portions. Not worth a trip out of the way as it used to be.

    Our waitress was absolutely fantastic and very attentive to a dietary restrictions. The mixed drinks were also well made. The wine list was so-so. The restaurant itself seems like it’s having a bit of an identity crisis. The food was fair, but the menu lacks cohesion, and portion sizing is inconsistent (ie. a “main course” portion means different things by an impressive amount). And, as a cherry on top, neither the radio nor the live music were jazz.

    Over all, good lunch, good service, ambiance not so much. People walking thru the restaurant carrying golf clubs from one side, and people trying to go thru the restaurant wearing wet bathing suits covered with random wet clothing doesn't leave one with an impression of a quality establishment. Menu very limited, perhaps we expected too much from what is after all a Hotel restaurant.

    Food was disappointing. Lobster in the pasta was undercooked and pasta was bland. They were sent back and replaced with the lamb saddle which was much better. Celery risotto was very good. Service was mediocre and inattentive. We have been here many times before but now we’d not go back.

    There was a group of six people for lunch. In general everything was fine with the following exception. Two people ordered the chicken satay with peanut sauce. It was tasteless and the peanut sauce had no detectable spice in it. This, I believe is an Asian dish and relies a lot on the peanut sauce.
