    Super crowded on last day of restaurant being open. Short staffed but staff working full out to do their best. Food not as good as usual assume it was because of volume and maybe short supplies? Will truly truly miss this lovely restaurant. Best location in city!

    Waited an hour and a half for our meal. In the two hours we were there we only got one refill because the server was absent. It seemed like they were really short staffed in both front and back of the house because food took an hour or more for everyone.

    We are sorry to say goodbye to Shift. We had a wonderful meal but are glad that we were able to use up $150 in gift cards before they closed. If I didn’t get the notification email on Friday, I would have lost out on using my gift cards.

    We had a great time yesterday at shift during there happy hour and brunch menu. The atmosphere is amazing and you get a great view of the river. Savannah was our bartender and server. She was very knowledgable about the menu and obviously made delicious drinks for us. All of us had about two drinks each and they were so good. This is why we spent about $40-50 per person. I just started to get into making drinks and Savannah was so nice to explain to me a few things and even share her bartending “Bible” the Cocktail Codex. 100/10 for customer service. Now the food didn’t blow me away. I had the Breakfast Shift and it was a good standard breakfast. But id probably go to other breakfast/brunch places if i had the option. But again this was the brunch menu and I would love to try the dinner and dessert menu in future.

    Great Food, great Location. Our server wasn't the most attentive waitress, hence the 4/5 rating. Drink glasses were empty for quite a while before asking for refills. We had finished at least 3/4 of the meal before she came back to ask if the meal was OK.

    Dined on the patio, overlooking the South Saskatchewan River. They have an eclectic menu and I was pleasantly surprised to see it included steak tartare. The server was attentive, but I never felt rushed. The steak tartare was flavourful and the meal was well presented. I happened to dine at Shirt on a Tuesday evening, which is half-price day on bottles of wine. Even without the deal on the wine, I thought I received good value for the cost. I enjoyed my meal and would definitely return to Shirt in the future.

    An excellent location located on our beautiful River Landing. Food and service were excellent, server was informative about the menu. The only negative I would make a comment on is the level of music being played. For dining we would rather have low background music so we can enjoy our conversations with friends.

    Fantastic food and beautiful ambience/scenery right by the river. Although the food is very good, Shift has not changed their menu since they opened so we now feel like we have “been there, tried that”. The service was fine but not exceptional by any means - the server seemed a bit inexperienced (was not at all familiar with the wine selections and made us keep our cutlery after the appetizers instead of simply bringing fresh cutlery). If it is your first time trying Shift, then you will have a wonderful experience. We have been there several times over the years and feel like we will choose other restaurants with updated menus and slightly better service.
