    Servers we all amazing, friendly and very knowledgeable on the menu. Bartender had a great hand in making some really good drinks. I loved the varied drink and food menu, you will definitely find something regardless of your taste. Prices were low for the quality of food. Went on a business dinner meeting, we were able to have a good discussion as sound levels were low, and never did we feel interrupted or rushed during our time.

    Such a beautiful atmosphere! We had a booth by the window as requested and were very pleased despite how cold it was in the restaurant (warmed up briefly, then cold again). Appetizers were delicious (escargots and onion soup au gratin). Main courses were very disappointing. The steak frites comes with “house cut fries,” a mountain of them, far too many limp, tasteless fries. The steak is “flat iron”, too beefy tasting for me. I didn’t taste any “compound garlic butter”. Gave most of it to my companion whose striploin was quite good. Pesto mashed potatoes aren’t for everyone. Carrots could have been a little less crunchy. Menu says “bourbon glazed carrots,” but we didn’t taste any glaze. Lemon tart for dessert was very good. We were celebrating a birthday but it wasn’t recognized. I would recommend for atmosphere, appetizers and desserts.

    Very attentive service. Portion sizes were admirable. Some items just not to my liking, but that could be personal preference. Also, a few items on menu not available, which is frustrating. Will try one more visit going forward.

    Preservation Hall consistently provides an excellent dining experience. The staff and service are top-notch, the menu is full of beautifully house-made items (from cocktail syrups through to pastry-chef desserts), and the space is comfortable and cozy. It is always a reliably delightful night out!

    Though the restaurant was not very full (jets were playing the leafs the evening we visited the restaurant) service was slow, 20 min to receive drinks after they were ordered. Food was a solid “meh” Reduction on beet gnocchi was burnt and made the dish not edible due to bitterness. We weren’t asked if we would like it remade, server just said it would be removed from the cheque. Portion size was on the small side, especially for a veggie dish that lists at $23. Burger was just odd. Patty was enormous (and I’m saying this as a big guy that likes meat,) but was so oddly compressed into a puck shape it was more like eating a slice of meat loaf on a bun. Burger sauce was good, and nice bun, but lack of seasoning in burger / sheer size made it difficult to finish. Would not visit again unfortunately. Price to quality is just not there.

    When the food arrived at our table, the server brought my wife the "Duck Cassoulet" versus the "Seared Duck" but after the server checked the order submitted, she indicated that there was a "Seared Duck" that had been ordered by another customer and she could re-direct that item to my wife in 4 minutes. In short order, my had received the dinner she ordered and enjoyed it.

    There was a problem with my meal at first. I just did not like what I had ordered. The server was quick to offer me another meal and I was happy with that one. So I hesitate to criticize since the problem was solved right away. I would go back.

    Not sure I would recommend this restaurant. My husband‘s arctic char was super greasy. There was a layer of oil on the bottom of his plate which soaked into the rest of his meal. The French onion soup and tuna appetizer was delicious though. Service was slow. Overall experience so so…

    Food quality was good except for the portion size which was reduced significantly compared to before. Even the dinner bread wasn't as generous and the server didn't offer us more. I am sure my husband was still hungry and my daughter ended up ordering desserts which she loved.

    The 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed every bite of our food from the butter lettuce salad, chicken Provencal, duck to the beet gnocchi. the herb seasoning was so fresh tasting. The lemon tarte and cheesecake were also delicious. Beer and red wine were also excellent. Service was very timely and pleasant.

    With the comfortable atmosphere and classy ambience, we would definitely come back for date night or just to hang out with friends. We were told that the oysters get flown in daily and we're so glad that we could get them fresh here in the city. And with 1 dollar an oyster every Wednesdays, I am sold!

    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.
