At State & Main we believe in intersections. We celebrate the crossing of paths. We herald the spot where one road meets another. We toast the mash ups that create new things. Because at State & Main we live for connections. Connections between old friends and new acquaintances, and great food and good times. Since we opened our doors in 2012, there’s been craft beers and cocktails at the bar, reimagined scratch-made favourites on the menu and great tunes filling our easygoing atmosphere. And all for the purpose of bringing the best things in life together in one perfect place. This is that place. With over 20 locations across Canada and the US, State & Main offers the fresh made, hand-crafted food our guests expect coupled with an inviting beer and spirits line-up to quench any and every thirst. So we say, when you find yourself at a crossroads, sit back, order a drink, ponder the menu and make a connection at State & Main.

Waitress took too long to take orders and also for our bills to pay for our meals. One of the steaks was under cooked.

I was a little disappointed that the birthday we were celebrating was not acknowledged. I had put that on the reservation request.

Good restaurant for an adult outing but less than ideal for kids. We were four adults and two toddlers and were placed at a table where it was impossible to get the high chairs situated so than adults could be with each Even though there was almost no one in the restaurant and lots of other more suitable seats. A clear indication that they are servicing adults not kids. The food was very good and timely.

Wine too expensive.
Bowls are not worth the value. Too much rice

Our server was nice and knowledgeable, the food sub par and definitely overpriced. Paid $110 before tip for 2 apps, and 4 drinks.

Most of the food was good. Delicious soup and three of the meals were good, however, two of us had the veggie (black bean) burger. We had it in the past and it was juicy and delicious. This time we were disappointed. It was dry and we didn’t realize that American cheese was a cheese slice. Real cheese would be much better.

New Years Eve. The meal and the service was excellent. Found the tables to be on the smaller side. The ladies washroom could be be cleaner. For a fairly new restaurant I was surprised with the condition of the washroom. The ladies washroom the tiles were dirty and floor not well kept.

Fish had been frozen and reheated. Fries were not good. Crab cakes were not good either. The soup was delicious.

A female wait staff stated that she would bring us two waters ... the water did not come.

The Novemburger requires a minimum of two napkins. Why did the wait staff not check in on us so we could request extra napkins and the waters that were promised.

The Novemburger was disappointing... the balsamic glaze too strong for my taste. Personal preference... hats off to the chef because it likely will be a favorite with many others.

My wife's grilled cheese burger was outstanding.

All in all, we had a good hour of conversation with food and drinks between us.

Its always a great experience at this location. Food and atmosphere is great. Always very friendly service, but our table was a bit restless because entres took almost an hour from the time of ordering to get to the table. It might have been busy in the kitchen and we understand this sometimes happens.

Great friendly service ..efficient & our server knew his stuff when it came to ingredients..as a celiac i was put at ease that i would have nothing to worry about & the risks were made clear without making me feel bad about having celiac ..only negative is that there is no desert options for gfree ..not cool ..there are plenty of options out there that are easy to prepare creme brulee ..jello ..icecream ..flourless choc cake ..even m& m has a tuxedo cake you should have on hand for allergy ootions

This was recommended to me but it was so so! The food was ok, the service was great! Our table was small and stuck against a wall. When I come from out of town I expect abit of a WOW which this restaurant was lacking!!

Everything was to our satisfaction except when the waitress asked if we wanted any alcoholic beverages before taking our order and 1 person responded no she left and did not inquire with anyone else as to what our preference was. There were a couple of us who had reviewed the wine list and were ready to order

We waited nearly an hour to receive our food after ordering. Other tables of patrons who arrived 20 mins after us received their food prior to us. We were told there was some problem in the kitchen. However the manager came over to apologize and offered us a discount on our meal and free desserts. This gesture goes a long way with me and for that reason I would not only recommend this restaurant but I would return. I realize s**t happens but it's when someone owns up to it and makes it better that brings people back.

We were seated quickly and greeted by our waitress who was very friendly and got our drinks quickly. Food was ok but the Hollywood Bowl was not what I was expecting based on the menu description. Not as much protein as you would think for an entree. Overall it was pleasant and I will go back to try something different.

Open Table overbooked the restaurant by 5 reservations by the time we arrived and the said not receive ours. I even showed the app and verified the date, time and address. The were really good about it and fit us in. However they mentioned this happens frequently. Perhaps Open Table should look into this.

Food was steaming hot, atmosphere incredible and the wait staff was on the ball. We’ve been a few times for date nights and has never been disappointed.
