Where do I start? Waiting in the lobby for 5 minutes before someone greeted us. We got seated at the only table without a table cloth. After ordering only took 25 minutes to get breakfast and a burger which did not look very appealing. Tasted fine but disappointing. No one asked how everything was. Unfortunately this place is going downhill.

This is my favourite restaurant but I was somewhat disappointed during this visit. I was uncomfortably seated in a 3 sided booth even though the reservation was for 5 people. We were also seated next to a table that was extremely loud and disruptive. I also did not enjoy the tacos I ordered, but our server was extremely nice and that was what made the experience decent.

We had a wonderful date night. I asked that we be seated in a private area if possible which S&L was able to facilitate for us. We felt like the only two people in the restaurant. We were able to have a truly amazing and romantic anniversary dinner. The server was fantastic and friendly and our food was perfect. I would highly recommend having a meal here. We will definitely be back.

The service and food was great! Great happy hour wine!
Our only issue is that we were seated outdoors (under cover and enclosed), but we were cold...had to wear our jackets.
When we left we had to walk through the restaurant and were actually glad that we were seated outside because the music was so loud inside that we wouldn't have been able to visit.

Had to cancel a Downtown reservation last minute due to time issues and went to S+L in South Surrey. Glad we did! Both of us really enjoyed our meals - the New York steak was fabulous.

Everyone enjoyed the food except one person who had gnocchi and it wasn’t cooked. They did take it off her bill though, so that was good.
Our server was very nice, but she wasn’t very good. We had to wait a long time to order and also for dessert and the bill.
We were sitting in the patio area and it was quite chilly and had to ask 2 times for the heater to be turned on. We were disappointed that we had to sit out there, the ambiance is so nice on the inside and the patio area was quite dusty and dirty. There was two table cloths on the table, one was nice and white, the other was quite yellowed, so it looked a bit tacky.
I’ve been to S & L before and the food was good and for the most part it was good this time,
But the area we were seated in and the service weren’t good this time.

Our food was left under the heat lamp for at least 15 to 20 minutes as there was a think skim on the lobster chowder and the sour cream and creamed corn were noticeably dried out. Very disappointed.

Very nice service and the food cooks on right time. However, we are not a big fan of the source on each dish but maybe other people enjoy the flavour.

Table in enclosed patio was perfect for family dinner - with nonTV screens as distractions. Food arrived quickly and was very tasty with nice presentation. Sirloin with steak frites was not the best cut compared to previous meals at S&L. Server Jordan was friendly and professional.

My husband, daughter and I went to S+L on Saturday, October 26, 2019 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. While we reserved a table on-line, where we put that it was a special occasion ("anniversary") and while we advised our server (when asked) that we were celebrating, it did not feel like a special occasion. There was no acknowledgement that this was a special evening. We returned to S+L this past weekend for dinner because we have received terrific customer service on previous visits. While we enjoyed the time we spent together, the restaurant experience was lackluster. Our service was slow, my meal came 20 minutes after my husband and daughter's meals, and we had to wait 25 minutes for our cheque. We also were not asked for our gift certificate that was sent to us via email to congratulate us on our anniversary, so we didn't receive our "bubby and dessert". Regrettably, we likely won't return to S+L because it was simply disappointing.

A nice relaxing outing. When I mentioned that we are vegan we were immediately given a staff person who was vegan and gave us some terrific recommendations. She also spoke to the chef to ensure that everything was the way we wanted it.

Just realized we were charged $1 to sample the wine we ordered. We were never told there would be a charge for that, I’ve never had a charge like that anywhere else. I’m totally appalled and will never go back to this restaurant again.

Hello!
I’ve heard very great things about SL.
Must have been off the day I visited.
Food was atrocious. The coleslaw was turning, actually. My partners Hamburg was very under cooked and my steak was....”boot leather”. I know that because I make my own often.
It’s unfortunate, it’s close to my new house and was looking fwd to bringing clients there. If I brought them there on Sat, I would have lost said client.

A great place for Sunday brunch in very pleasant surroundings. The decor and ambiance make for a very relaxed meal whatever time of day. The food was delicious, we both had the mushroom and goats cheese omelette. It was light and perfectly cooked. The staff, always pleasant, are efficient without being intrusive. Always a delight.

I loved the idea of getting appies as sides for a reasonable price. I was totally underwhelmed with the chicken Caesar, would not order it again. Service was good. Atmosphere was a lovely summer evening. Not sure if I would go back again as there was not a lot on the menu that made me go 'Oh, I have to try that!'

I ordered the Master chicken dinner we had to wait at least 45 mins for our meal the restaraunt was not that busy however the waitress said that they had a big party come in we did not see any big party so that was just an excuse. Once I received my meal the chicken was hot but the mashed potatoes were cold as was the bacon corn, we waited for the waitress to come back but she did not at that point my wife got up and went to the bar and spoke with the manager the manager came over to the table and apologized and took my plate she was gone no longer than 1 min and returned with my plate, again my potatoes and corn were just as cold as the first time we called the manager over again and told her that they were just as cold and again apoligized and took my plate returning back about 2 minutes later, she said " now if they are not hot I would like to know why not " I asked if she microwaved them and she said no they were freshly made, given that she was gone for about 2 minutes makes me believe they were microwaved however my chicken was now just warm.
The Manager did comp my meal and a drink however it did ruin our dining out experience !!!!!
Not happy with this Location whatsoever.

I had to retract my referrals to friends as to not embarrass myself. Worst service I’ve ever had. Go to Langley S+L don’t go to the South Surrey location. We were surrounded by unhappy patrons.

We sat inside in a booth. Booths are white leather and should be wiped down often... they were dirty.
