    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.

    We have dined at Shift many times in recent years, and have never been disappointed. The food quality is excellent and so too is the service. We are very disappointed to hear that the restaurant will be closing its doors permanently later this year.

    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.

    Seafood Linguine bowl should be served on a plate which would appear more sanitary (when being carried by the server) & sides of plate could be used for seafood shells (when waitress forgets to bring plate for same). Music was too loud & inappropriate for fine dining. Outside noise (i.e. people/activity in the park) was significant. Ambience is lovely on the deck with beautiful surroundings & view (& perfect weather which we had on Fri. night!). Our waitress was professional & very fun!

    10:15 am Sunday Brunch menu. Nice view overlooking the river. Had the pierogies eggs benedict and the croque madam with a scone starter. Recommend all. Particularly enjoyed the raspberry jam with the scones. Only wish we could have had the same experience on the patio but not set up. too chilly still. Service was friendly and attentive by all. Even let me try my Habanero pepper jelly purchase from the adjacent store. Highly recommend the jelly also but not for the timid.

    Needs improvement - Food took a long time to arrive. The meal was overpriced. The pierogies were dry and artichoke dip had an awkward spice to it. I did enjoy the wine selection, but my first choice was all out. The only positives were the nice view of the river, and quiet seating. Overall would not return for dinner menu.

    Main course was brought out along with appetizers by an unassigned server. It was returned to kitchen by our server. Eventually we were told that it had been re-prepared and it did arrive. This was rather uncomfortable and we had to rush to our next engagement.
