    A great place for special occasions. The serving staff were very friendly. I wish they would put the mushroom item back of the menu. A blue/jazz band would be a nice addition Thursday or Friday nights.

    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.

    We eat out on the patio. Their patio is very green, a pleasant place to dine. The food was excellent. Fresh bread with the Hall Salad was a great start. Sadly my favourite veggie disk has been replace but they promised to bring it back in the fall. The serving people are very professional and friendly. We highly recommend the Hall.

    The food was delicious and the service from our server, Cassandra, was excellent! After glasses of white Sangria were ordered - refreshing and light - two small pieces of very tasty focaccia bread with nice 'soft' butter started us off followed by supper orders of Steak Frites and Pickerel Fish and Chips. The steak was cooked perfectly as ordered and the Pickerel was lightly battered and very crispy. In both dishes, the frites/chips were shatteringly crispy, which for our tastes was delightful! The only small item not entirely enjoyed, and definitely due to personal taste preferences was the pear-ginger-cilantro coleslaw accompanying the Pickerel plate. It is said that cilantro is an acquired taste and in this case we thought it overwhelmed the other flavours to a point we could not taste them really. Topping off supper were desserts of Paris-Brest and Petite Pavlova; each one excellent in their flavours and execution. The Petite Pavlova had a wee bit of a tart bent due to the passionfruit inclusion just for folks to be aware of in case they are more used to the overall sweet 'berry' flavour(s) of 'traditional' Pavlova. On the night of this visit, even though we were seated right around the corner of the main foyer area, the atmosphere was welcoming and not noisy at all . Simply a wonderful evening and we are looking forward to our next visit!

    Date night with my husband for $1 oysters. Also ordered the charcuterie board and added 2 cheeses. Sausages and pickles all made in house, simply fabulous and the blue cheese is amazing! We have been here a few times now and have yet to be disappointed. Our server Kelsey was wonderful! Very friendly and attentive without being around too much. Thanks Kelsey for making a lovely evening even better!

    Nice patio. Food was all delicious! Salmon tartare was excellent. Tourtière was very good with a nice twist on the classic, and the zucchini pasta very tasty. Generous portions. Great service. Will definitely be returning to taste more dishes.

    Visiting from the US, and it was our last night in town. The menu and chef’s creds are what made me choose this place. It did not disappoint! The cocktails were creative and delicious! The oysters were small, but fresh and delicious! All of our entrées were equally delicious! That passion fruit pavlova was the bomb 💥 We had a wonderful dining experience on the patio during sunset! Our server was wonderful! Highly recommended! THANK YOU!!! 🤙🏽

    Shannon our waitress was very pleasant and provided us with her name when she came to the table the first time. She was very kind to provide us with information about the restaurant as it was our first time. She also introduced us to Aidan, the owner's son who also helped out with the service. The oysters were fresh and delicious. We are definitely planning to return soon.

    We tried oysters for the first time it was a great experience. The serving staff was knowledgeable and thoughtful. I was amazing to see so much thought put into the no alcoholic drink selection, it is vast and I am excited to try more. The fries were cooked amazingly, just how I would prefer them. The pavlova was a real treat at the end, I will think about it for days.

    Service was awful. When we arrived, the host gave us water but no one touched our table for 15 minutes. Server arrived and blamed the host for not telling her we arrived. It’s important to note their was only three other tables in the restaurant at the time so that’s not a great excuse. Our bottle of wine was taken away not once, but twice. When we asked where they were, it was so cringeworthy to watch our server make excuses, again. She brought back the bottles we purchased and we each had one more 3 oz glass each. Unbelievable. Appetizers were cleared without us being asked. Food was okay overall but small portions and the fries that were “recommended” were not wonderful and the onion soup made my husband sick and did not touch the Bison Meatloaf he ordered. The server didn’t ask why! Ambiance is not great and the menu selection is not wonderful either. Pretty disappointed in this restaurant and wouldn’t recommend/return.

    Everything was great ! We love this spot and our waitress was wonderful ! The only thing I would change, is the amount of salt on the fish & chips though . It just had way too much salt on it all , we didn’t want to make a fuss about it so just tried to brush off as much salt as we could to eat …The oysters and tuna were absolutely delicious! And we will definitely be back again !
