My wife and I wanted to go out to dinner before the symphony and i was very happy to be able to make a reservation at the last minute. Despite it being very crowded, the service was very good and the meal came quite quickly.

Thank you for choosing to come to ROMEOs before the Symphony show. It's so nice to dine here when all you have to do is venture downstairs for the main event!

Good food in a nice setting. Large noisy group came in at the end of our dinner that made conversation difficult, but otherwise a positive experience.

enjoyable evening ----- three of us shared three appetizers; mussels, crab cakes, calamari, along with a salad. I also had the chowder ---- all were delectable and the soup was some of the best chowder I have had, with a wide variety of seafood within. The other two diners also talked highly of their meals; one had a lovely salad while the second had a burger and said it was really good.
Our server [ sorry about the name] was terrific.
Nice evening

Restaurant was busy but you wouldn't know if from the noise level! We were a party of 11 seated in the lounge area and were able to chat across the length of the table. Everyone loved the food. Definitely recommend and will be back.

Our lounge really is great for that; with plenty of space between the tables, you can still enjoy a nice conversation while dining.

The only complaint is the service was very very slow, I know it was valentines and all , but we waited along the even between drinks. I don’t know weather you should have had more staff or we just had a bad waitress. I’m pretty sure it was our waitress. We were a long time in between drinks ,

We had a wonderful dinner on valentines. The server was very attentive but not hovering over us. Our food was divine! We ordered the crab boil for two and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
We might recommend with the crab boil that crab forks and picks be provided but we dove in head first anyway! Thank you!

Booked this venue for a birthday party and we were on a tight schedule. Our waiter was amazing, promised we would get our food, drinks and bills in plenty of time for us to make our appointment. Not only was he fast but super pleasant and accommodating to such a large party. Plus with online reservation option made booking a breeze. Would definitely be booking this place again in the future!

Overall good dining experience with good food and friendly staff. The only issue was we made a reservation and were given the worst table location in the restaurant even though there were many better locations available. However the staff were happy to relocate us when we requested it. The other minor thing was when we ordered "Special Coffees" the waitress came back and said there is no whipping cream, do you still want your coffees? We accepted but weren't offered any kind of discount. The Kitchen shouldn't be out of something this simple to have on hand. So staff is friendly but very young and still learning.

A real disappointment. Meatloaf was dry and tasteless, pasta over cooked and laksa was horrid. If you lived in Kamloops you would cut this place as a “tourist” only restaurant.

A wonderful meal with delightful menu. Our Pud Thai and Chicken Skillet were both excellent as was the house salad. This chef could hold his own in any west coast big city! Ambience? Kinda boring, it's in a hotel lobby with big s green TVs like a sports bar - but there was no taking away from the great food.

Ate there twice on recent stop overs. Went there twice because the food was so good the first time. Bench seats a little soft but the wine selection is good and the food very very tasty. Good value and an easy location for a bunch of local hotels

Food was great, service was pretty good. The only complaint was that there was lipstick on the glass of water served to me, and when I was brought another glass there was a lip print or smudge on the rim. The service staff should take better care to use clean dishes.
