    Though it is almost round the corner from me, and I have had good reports about it from my frinds and colleagues, I have not been able to get there till now for various reasons. I was impessed and will no doubt go there again when I eat out.

    This was out third time here. For some reason, the salmon we ordered (2) of us in a group of 4 had was quite bland. Had no flavour whatsoever ever. Almost as if it was cooked and served with nothing on it. We didn’t say anything to the server because he was absolutely outstanding! I had the salmon here before and it was quite nice, really not sure that happened this time.

    No vine stock, we had to change after the first bottle. We were not amazed with the cook. We ordered appetizers backed Brie cheese but it was melted in with the original packaging. WoW

    Taris was the perfect spot for a meeting with a client who also happens to be a good friend.....the dining room is set up so that you enjoy the comfort of a warm inviting dining experience while still able to discuss private business matters. The food & service were excellent. I would not hesitate to return.

    Had a nice dinner for a group of 6 but the table we were seated at was very small for 6 of us and uncomfortable just needed some more elbow room, sever and staff were great, wait time was perfect , appetizers of mussels and calamari were tasty , some of the entrees ordered were excellent but others were not great , a really nice evening out for the most part just a few things that could have been better.

    The drinks were awful. They were so strong! I had to send mine back it was not drinkable, I ordered a different drink and it was better. The waitress still charged us for the drink even though I was clear I couldnt drink it, the alcohol was way too strong, and it had 1 sip out and was taken back. The food was good. The waitress had a bit of an attitude. Don't get me wrong she did her job, but was just off. I dont know if I would go back. If I did, I would not order any drinks other than water.

    Told them it was our 45 anniversary but not acknowledged. Two very large groups around us - a loud family of children and generations and loud drinking birthday group.Arrived at 7 and food did not arrive until 8. Food was good but overpriced. No apology for timing. Did comment on behaviours and noise around us but no compensation or added attention. Was hoping for intimate small dining room and entered overcrowded party room. Will not be our choice again for a special occasion.

    Ours was a business lunch with 5 people and the quiet privacy was great. It was a brand new menu that day and all 5 of us raved amongst each other and to our server. It was good value for money and appetite.

    We had a very long wait to put in our order and have our order served. Either the server or kitchen made an error with one order and brought the wrong dish. They would replace it, but it was going to take another 5-10 minutes. After waiting 45 mintues and getting the wrong meal, that was unacceptable wait. I ate what I could of the wrong meal. It was a minimal apology when the issue was raised with them and no adjustment on the bill. It simply felt like the didn't care they served a completely wrong meal. Their food generally was good

    You go there for the view not the food. For appetizer we had the Brie with crackers, we literally got 5 crackers and the Brie was flavourless. My husband got the Welland Bowl and could not go beyond one bite. He paid an extra $7 for Salmon and it was dry and burnt. He literally left the whole plate. I ended up getting the fried chicken which were literally 4 pieces of chicken tenders with Buffalo sauce on the side. Really disappointed with the food. If you’re looking for a great ambience you’ll definitely get it there, but the food was not worth it at all.

    Very nice place. Great ambiance. Nice views day and night. Wait staff was excellent. I had the beef tenderloin and it was really good, a little pricey but worth it. Not a place for draught beer, only cans or bottles. Lots of wine choices. My only real complaint ... we ask for Negronis (not on the drink menu) and when they came they had maraschino cherries (seriously!) instead of orange slice or peel. Yikes. :o)
