I LOVE Royale. It is the cutest spot so I always bring clients here for consults and meeting when we are talking all things wedding. The half price wine Sunday-Thursday is amazing as well. They always accommodate my allergies and I've enjoyed everything I've tried here. Will be back! Ps. The patio is stunning!

While the food was very good, we had a few issues. The family style salad came with a hair in it. We sent it back immediately, and they brought out a new one (at least they said it was), within a few minutes. For one of our orders, we requested something be left out of the dish, but they brought it mixed in. We sent it back immediately, but it took about 10 minutes for them to remake it, so one of our party sat watching us eat, then when their dish arrived, we watched him eat. Nothing was done at the end of our meal to make up for either of the issues.

3/4 of us did their Sunday set menu for $39/person and they were very accommodating with a dairy allergy. They also kept it nut free for another allergy at the table, just in case they wanted to taste anything. It was all delicious, and the ambiance is always great. Definitely will be returning.

The staff seemed untrained or uncertain about everything. Our drinks sat on the bar for 10 mins while the waiter did unnecessary pacing throughout the restaurant. When I asked the hostess to grab my drinks she said she would see if she could but the bartender ended up bringing them, and there was no apology from anyone in regards to the long wait. The waiter went through the whole menu which was time consuming and unnecessary as he explained everything almost word for word as to what the menu said. He did warn me that the dish I wanted was heavy but I feel that it didn't need to be so rich. The meat was cooked well but they didn't need to drown in in sauce and puree. Better presentation would have made the dish more enjoyable and people would probably be able to finish it all. My husband ordered the pork belly and scallops and as soon as I saw the scallops I knew it was under done. Sure enough they were raw and cold inside. They sent back two new ones, which were cooked better, but still didn't have the nice golden crust that a scallop should have. I don't think the kitchen staff are comfortable cooking scallops. The fries that we ordered as a starter also took a very long time to come out. I assume he forgot to ring them in, but when they did arrive the ketchup was delicious. All in all it was not a great experience and I wouldn't come back or recommend it to anyone. I don't feel it was worth the price and hope they can do better for their own sake of staying in business and because the venue is very lovely and classy.

I loved the food as it was delicious. Our server was pleasant and patient as we had to wait for our friend to arrive. My only complaint is that the music was too loud. It was really hard to hear the conversation from around our table. Yes I would go back there again. Come to think about it, the washrooms are located downstairs which is inconvenient for anyone who is in a wheel chair.

We honestly came for the half priced wine (by the bottle). Of course that was fantastic. The mussels and tartare were very good and the butchers cuts we ordered were also delicious. The service was good to start then slowly tapered off as an adjacent table of a dozen or so people required extra attention. After a bit of a lull in service, it picked up again as another (more attentive) server came in to provide some assistance. Overall, a great evening with some of the best wine and food.
