We enjoyed it. Though the sirloin meal my hubby got, which is more expensive, was a lot less food than my steak sandwich, so hubby was jealous of my food. The steaks were good. The kid’s meal pizza was pretty dark, though he still enjoyed it thankfully. It was kind of loud since it’s a big open space. We enjoyed it overall and I’m sure will be back again.

Barely any food for the price you pay. It's not downtown so there isn't really an excuse for the prices. Won't likely go back again. This was our second try.

Very good...it was quite loud hard to hear each other and server. Only 1 dessert was available so we didn’t order but normally would have. The calamari appetizer was a nice flavour but hardly any calamari and lots of bits of the batter and veggies, which was disappointing. Server was excellent. Would like to see an orange pekoe tea added to your selection.

It was a great experience overall. Our servers did a great job and the food was fantastic!
The only thing I can say negative is that the host argued a bit over a table that was not wiped down properly. It had drink stains and fingerprints from the last people. During COVID, even if the client is wrong, they are still right....

Great food as usual, great service, great experience overall. We ate from the small plates menu, which were all delicious. Excellent sticky toffee pudding for dessert too! A little noisy but not too bad. Highly recommended!

Great brunch. Limited Brunch Menu selection but the employees were great. Service was a little slow but since we were in no hurry it was pleasant to have the conversation time. We were indoors but the spacing between tables was excellent so there was no Covid concern.

Dirty. Despite being the first seating for brunch, we were seated at a dirty table, with dirty seats and a dirty floor. Staff was unbothered when it was brought to their attention.

Ordered the fried chicken sandwich and fries. The fries were good, hot and crispy. The sandwich was very dry and the lettuce wilted. I also don’t understand the point of cutting the chicken and placing one on top of the other under the bun. I had to fix it, so the chicken covered the whole bun. There was more breading than chicken and shredded iceberg lettuce is always the best choice with a warm sandwich. Definitely needed more mayonnaise, as it was very dry. Service was good and staff friendly.

Hubby and I were given a gift card to Starbelly, we decided to try the Brunch. We were not disappointed, reservations done very easy. We were greeted by a wonderful hostess that explained the mask rules and seated us to our table. We were met by the most wonderful waitress we have ever had.. Hayley C. made the whole experience FABULOUS!! She was friendly, took our orders with smiles and offered suggestions to the menu. The food came quickly, hot and delicious.. Coffee was refilled without us having to ask. We will be heading back to Starbelly to try dinner and a happy hour. Again big 10 stars to Hayley for outstanding service..

Multiple tables available, seated right by the door- undesirable due to amount of foot traffic.
We were not greeted by serving staff for 7 minutes. We were not provided water until that time. We were also not told that only brunch was being served - not the regular menu- until it was time to order.
Restaurant was very cold. Myself and many other guests were wearing jackets. Overall, the worst restaurant experience I have had in a long time.

They do not accept AMEX. If that is your preferred payment you'll have to consider other options.

Our server was great! Was honest and very eager to help. Food was delicious but could have used a little more sauce. More hollandaise etc. I ordered a London fog and that is not on the menu. Our server Colter went out of his way to make one for me. It was delicious. They entire staff made us feel welcome and not weird, especially with current health regulations etc.

The beets salad was very bland as well as ravioli.
Shrimp appetizer the sauce was spicy & good but look like as presentation goes a frozen appetizer. My daughter enjoyed her burger.
The dates pudding was very good but a greater choice of dessert would be Better

We went to Starbelly after not being there for 2 years and we were very disappointed. Our moscow mules were the worst we've ever had. We had an appetizer, and it took 50 minutes from when we finished our appetizer to when our mains came... during this time it took 30 minutes for them to even check to see if we needed another drink.

The reasoning was "we had a big take out order come in right before you". It's still not acceptable to have your in house guests wait 50 minutes between courses.

Although the server was perfectly lovely, we will not be back any time soon.
