It was supposed to be a special occasion ( birthday to be exact), I even put it on my reservation, but none of the server or host bother asking. Totally a not good experience compared to The Keg. Very poor first experience:(

The server was very nice but the food took a long time to come out and was disappointing when it arrived. It was Sunday brunch and we all had the lobster prawn Benedict. Menu says lobster & prawn patty but lobster & prawn pellet would be more accurate. Tiny disc of seafood on a dry muffin with a poached egg and a bit of lackluster Hollandaise sauce. For $18. Add in tax & tip and... well, no one at our table felt the meal was worth the money or the wait.

The prices are way to high for the poor quality of the food. My chicken Caesar salad too much dressing and had a very hot taste and the chicken was overdone and dry.
The service too way to long and the server didn't come around much. It was very cold as the air was blowing on us.

Service was attentive and personable. Calamari was hard and crunchy. Tasted stale. Way more spider-like parts than the circles and the sauce smooshed onto the plate was dissapointing. My steak was good but my Wife's baby caesar salad was so over dressed that she couldn't eat it. It was removed from the bill with no arguement...but my Wife left hungry and dissapointed.

After making a reservation for 6:15 we ended up waiting for about 20 minutes to be seated. The booth we got was too small for all of us, although we finally requested to move to a larger table when one opened up. I requested a local beer, which was out-of-stock....it happens, so no biggie!! We then ordered our food, which took A LONG time to arrive. Our appetizer calamari was stone cold, so we complained and another order was prepared. The new order took a while to arrive and was "warmer" but not hot. Right on the heels of this, our entres arrived. Two of our party had steaks, one with lobster also. Food again, was stone cold. We complained again and food was taken away to be redone. Meanwhile the rest of our party continued to eat. By the time the new plate arrived, everyone else was finished, so ended up eating in two different "shifts"!!! Overall VERY disappointing, especially considering the prices charged.

I hate to write this review because S+L is my favorite restaurant however this visit left me very disappointed. We had a party of 5 including one toddler. This had to be at least my 10th visit in the last year as we try to go on every special occasion and then some. We ordered the Ling Cod, Lobster and Prawn Burger, Crispy Sushi Rice, Crispy Calamari, Pan Seared Scallops & Gnocchi, Crispy Local Brussels, Hero Wings and a side of fries. To our dismay, ONLY the Hero Wings and Fries came out hot. The flavor of the rest of the items was still there however eating a slightly warm meal when each of the times were at least $14 or more was extremely disappointing. We were all so hungry that despite not enjoying the meal, we continued to eat. It took forever for our server to come check on us after our food was brought to our table so by the time she came around again, we were half finished most of the plates. She informed her manager who provided us with a "staff discount" to all of our food items and also provide us with 2 $10 vouchers to use at brunch. In the history that we have been going here there have been 2 visits that were disappointing, this is the the third.

We find the menu to be somewhat limited. The food is good but a little overpriced. The attention to detail by the staff needs work. I booked our reservation on-line and was asked if there was an occasion to which I indicated anniversary. So why is it there if your people are just going to ask again? We also thought the water on the table should not be room temperature. Don't get me wrong our waitress was both pleasant and helpful but the rest needs attention.

The appetizers were excellent but my friend who ordered a $42 fish dish did not get the side that was supposed to come with and did not realize until the end of the meal ... too late to let our server know. Her hubby got a tiny amount of dipping sauce for his beef dip and waited 10 min to get more after requesting. My hubby’s pasta dish was terrible and tasteless and garlic bread was not toasted. All 3 of their meals were not hot as noted by the manager, there was a backlog in the kitchen. My steak was cooked perfectly and sides were excellent. Very disappointing given the cost and that we we had all been looking forward to a nice evening out.

We were stuck in a bad table just inside the door and outside the bathroom. It was terrible it doesn’t even feel like you get into the building it’s like being stuck in the waiting room. Our first waiter was not good at all. Kept ingnoring us. He was replaced by a much nicer more attentive young girl. She made up for his rude attitude

The gnocchi for the harvest chicken was basically mush and gluey. Not how you’d make a traditional gnocchi. The onions were completely burnt in the sauté as well.

Have been to S &L many times and it’s always good. We almost always order the Brussels sprouts for an appetizer. They are so good! We have tried most things on the menu and all good. I especially love the Lobster & Prawn Linguine. Servers are always very friendly and helpful.

We were very disappointed with our meal and the service was not very good. If we had been asked after we received our food we could have perhaps had the problem fixed.
We had the lobster handheld and it was spiced so hot we nearly couldn't eat them.
We ordered dessert and waited 25 minutes for it to be served it turned out to be complimentary but I would have preferred to pay for it and have it served sooner. We were never asked if we would like anything else while we tried to patiently wait for dessert to be served.
The music was very loud making it difficult to have a conversation.
Have noticed a substantial reduction in both service and the quality of food offered since opening so not sure we will continue to be a customer.

Went to dinner and all 4 people ordered the Master Chicken. 2 of us really enjoyed the meal but the other 2 had chicken that tasted different and it was really spicy. The Master Chicken shouldn’t be spicy. We talked to the waiter but he couldn’t explain.

Restaurant was very loud but the staff were very accommodating in moving us to a quieter area. We would have had to leave otherwise. Not the restaurant’s fault ... just one large group that was very loud. Food was very good, as always. Filet mignon was melt-in-your mouth good. Hoping to have room for a dessert one of these times as they look yummy.

Eggs were under cooked. Had to be re done. Put the new eggs on old bread and bread was now soggy.
Staff are in aware of the JRG app and I had to go to the bar to get my corrected receipt so I could pay

Just another Joseph Richards group restaurant. Apparently if you've seen one, you've seen them all. If you want surf and turf meals, go to The Keg.

We’ve been to S& several times with no issues. Last night we sat at a wobbly table in a noisy section. Asked for a new table but they used coasters to steady it instead which fixed the table but I still couldn’t have a conversation without yelling. Steak was extremely over seasoned. They offered to get me anew one but it would have taken to long. They did remove it from my bill which was appreciated.

We celebrate special occasions at S&L and can say we celebrate often! This time we celebrated our 7 yr Anniversary and the restaurant generously gave us two glasses of champagne and a dessert. The food however left us a bit disappointed, I had the lobster bisque and a shrimp salad, my husband has a steak. The salad was nice but bisque was barely warm and just had an off putting texture and pretty bland. My husbands steak was medium rare but was really hard to chew, and he cut it into small bites to see if it would help but it didn’t. We love this restaurant, they had a bad day like we all do at times. I will continue to celebrate there but we won’t order what we had again.
