    Food did not live up to the standard of other restaurants in this price point. We had dirty plates and empty cups on our table for the duration of our seating. Ordered a steak to be cooked medium rare, which is pretty standard. Came back medium well, closer to well done. When it was re-made it came back rare, with a cool interior. Instead of compensating the meal that was cooked improperly twice, they threw in a dessert that likely cost them 2 dollars to give. It was not of good quality. Would not come back here again. For this price point, I would choose a different local spot or one of the many well known concepts located around our city.

    Second time here, had pork chop, missed dill flavor in"dill spaetzle", think topping on pork chop was "kraut slaw", maybe tablespoon full. "Flat iron steak" also not very flavorful, came out cold. If returned, brisket was good on 1st visit but no rush to go back. Do give free dessert to celebrate birthday.

    We were greeted upon arrival and lead to our table where our company was already seated. We waited some time for a server to come to offer us our initial drinks. We wanted the jalapeños drink on the menu but it was unavailable. One of us asked for a specific drink which the waitress was going to check to see if they could prepare. This was forgotten about until later when our appetizers were brought and we reminded her of the request. Service was slow for the night overall which we later learned it was because they received a large unexpected group and many servers were off due to a wedding. So fair. We all had appetizers which were amazing!!!. Us two ladies were splitting the Le Burger week burger dinner, which we advised the waitress of our plans to share. It was brought on one plate for us to split ourselves. Would have been a nice touch to split the burger and bring it out on two plates with our own fries. Really how much is a few extra French fries? Burger was juicy and great flavour profiles with the shrimp. One guest had a chicken dish that was thick with olives, of which he is not a fan and was unable to eat most of his meal. He saw that olives were in the description of the meal but had not expected so many. Chicken was tender and flavourful. Ambiance is always nice. Service has been amazing in the past so they just had an off night due to staffing shortage. I will definitely be back.

    Great outdoor patio and good service personnel. The gnocchi dish was amazing but the bison meatloaf and arctic char dishes were lack lustre. Arctic char was oil on oil on oil and the polenta rectangles had no flavor. The creme Brule was great. And a favorite.

    The server was excellent, checked in us every now again to make we were doing ok. The food was super delicious with good portions. I had the steak frites, I asked for medium…it came out medium well but was still juicy. The restaurant wasn’t noisy at all, I was able to hear my friend across the table. I would definitely return to the restaurant and try something different.

    It was our first time going to this establishment. Must say the service and food were both excellent. Erica our server made our experience very memorable, and we would definitely recommend Preservation Hall to our friends and family. Also the The Zero-proof menu was a nice addition for non drinkers such as ourselves.

    Says they are French inspired but none of the cooking is French. Spend 3 months a year in France. Nothing on the menu was relatable to a French menu.
