    Food was average at best. Clearly not made fresh. Wings were frozen and barely cooked through, food was Luke warm at best. Fries were cold clearly been sitting under heat lamp/warming table. French dip beef, salty and fatty, au jus salty and barely warm. Overpriced for the quality of the food. Disappointing for a Marriott hotel restaurant . We realize Covid has compromised most restaurant establishments but food can still be high quality.

    high end bistro attached to the Hotel. No view but pleasant decor. Probably better for breakfast than dinner but the food was satisfying...I had the "seared grass fed beef tenderloin"; the beef was excellent, the potato side tasty as were the vegatables

    Very disappointed with our dining experience at the Apron. We have stayed at Weston hotels in Tokyo, Osaka and Bangkok and dined at their in-house restaurants so we had a lot of expectations for the Apron. The first thing we noticed upon entering the Apron was the smell of oil and food coming from the kitchen, which shows a lack of adequate ventilation and exhaust from the kitchen. The food took forever to arrive at the table. Another party that arrived later than ours got their food first. That party was already halfway done eating before our food finally arrived, we told our server we were beginning to get worried that the kitchen forgot our orders. The server did not show any concern or did not seem apologetic for the long wait. We expected much better service from a Westin hotel restaurant. Food was mediocre and lukewarm. Stay away from the calamari. The calamari we had seems to have been emptied from a prepackaged pre-breaded bag. There were so many pieces of breaded crumbs without any calamari in it. The breading on the calamari is so thick and over fried that the texture of the squid became so chewy. The halibut was also overdone to the point that the crust was hard to chew on. The halibut dish came with a broth, but the server never gave us a spoon for the broth. We had to ask for the spoon. The sticky rice that came with the dish was also overdone as the rice was mushy. We had an open table dining cheque that we used for partial payment of our expensive dinner. It seems that no one in the restaurant knew how to process the cheque. The server had to call the manager down to sort things out. It took another half an hour before they were finally able to figure out how to process the cheque. In this half an hour, nobody came back to our table to give us an update as to what is going on. We had to flag down our server to remind her that we have been waiting forever to settle our bill. Very disappointed as we had high expectations.

    Our server was excellent. The place was packed but she kept us in the loop as to when our food would be arriving. Friendly and nice. The halibut, with its unique sticky mango rice, is the best and keeps us returning over and over again to this restaurant. The calamari was a large portion (so a good sharing appetizer) but rather tasteless and the dipping sauce was just plain mayo. Disappointed in the calamari.

    Hey...who knew? We stayed at the Westin overnight and enjoyed dinner and breakfast there. The spaghetti Bolognese was outstanding...like I said, who knew? We also loved the pancetta, arugula flatbread. Breakfast was equally well-done. Check out the buffet choices: chicken and waffles! Shakshuka!, chocolate chip pancakes, Breakfast burrito wrap...and the usual fare. Very nicely done, Kitchen and Staff!

    Some dishes are better than others, but considering the range they offer and how small the kitchen is, not bad. Watermelon salad was on point! Perfect balance and interplay of flavours (sweet and salty) and textures. Pizza could be improved, but it is unfair to compare them with the specialty wood-burning oven places around town.

    It's a quiet spot for a business meeting which is why I was there . We were there around 10:30am, seated quickly and served water and coffee right away. The food unfortunately was disappointing. I ordered the broccoli spinach frittata and there was no broccoli. It would also be good to have a better description that the potatoes are mixed into the frittata. 'Fingerling potatoes' to me implies they are on the side. My guest ordered the Wall Centre Breakfast, and it's the worst Ive seen. The hashbrowns were dry and looked 3 days old. So did the sausage, dried, shriveled and so unappealing.

    There’s been a mix-up with our table we arrived 10 min early and our table is not yet set-up but our very attentive waiter made up for it. First time at this resto & with the 4.5 stars compared to a 4 at Tramonto we were expecting a bit more the ambiance is disappointing and the place is like a bar more than a restaurant and the view is non existent just walls all around maybe that’s why it’s called “wall centre” JK.

    We went on Christmas Eve and ordered their Christmas 3-course menu. The service was terrific, very friendly and attentive. The food was mostly great and well presented. The only part of it that was a bit lackluster to me was the desserts. The chocolate lava cake and pear tart both werent warm enough. Overall though, it was a really pleasant experience and we had a lovely dinner.

    Overall the food and service was really good. The only thing is the cleanliness as I noticed there were many fruit flies flying around the restaurant. One fell into my glass of wine which was very disturbing. Although the server took it off our bill, but it made me wonder about the cleanliness inside the kitchen as well.

    Tucked away in the corner of Richmond near the airport, the restaurant itself was not crowded at all on a Friday night (even though the hotel lobby was quite busy.) The food did not justify the price point, however. The sous vide pork was overcooked and was not tender at all, but the pork belly was nicely done. Everything on the Salmon dish was too salty. The dessert was alright but not to a point that changed our minds about the place.

    Extremely friendly waitress who went above and beyond as she prepared us a special dessert as we were celebrating our anniversary. Even the general manager stopped by to congratulate us. Food was quite tasty and serving amount was generous. We ordered the spicy Korean wings as an appetizer and got 13 pieces. Definitely wasn't expecting that much. Quiet and off the beat location so a great hidden gem, although the restaurant itself isn't very large.

    We had ordered the duck prosciutto, the halibut with the green curry sauce and the lamb. The prosciutto was good paired with the arugula and goat cheese. The halibut was the star of our meal. It was prepared perfectly and wasn't overdone at all. We really enjoyed the sauce paired with the sticky rice. The lamb was good but like another reviewer said the fat could've been rendered further. Service was a bit slow, likely because there was a bigger party that got seated after us. Overall though it wasnt very busy or nosy. Would return again for a date night.

    Compared to other restaurants in Richmond this restaurant is off the main stretch of No. 3 Road, not well advertised and located at the back of the main floor of the Wall Centre Airport. Its certainly small at 67 seats but once you are settled in its a nice atmosphere where you can have a quiet conversation and wind-down. We tried the tuna carppaccio and duck prosciutto for appetizers, both well-presented and tastefully prepared. Pease note that bread or a bread basket is not complimentary or provided. Like other reviewers we opted for the halibut and lamb chops for our mains. They did not disappoint and unlike some other reviewers we found the entrée portions to be generous for the price. The halibut was slightly over cooked but came with sticky rice that had a nice coconut aroma and infused with chunks of mango. It was an interesting touch to see the sticky rice served in a separate bowl from the halibut entrée. The 2 lamb chops were generous cuts cooked to medium rare and served with hotel quality veggies and buttery smooth whipped potatoes. While this was not the most memorable dinner the execution was solid and the service pace friendly but not swift. Overall, the entrees are the stars of this establishment. We opted a couple of coffees, 1 soft drink, 2 appetizers and 2 mains. Final tab including tax was about $117.

    A good place and it will be free parkibg when go ask for the parking pass at the counter. But don't understand why would the restaurant will only have one waiter for the whole evening time to serve the whole restaurant. Actually we can leave restaurant more early then we expect. We finish food around 8:30 but can't leave until 9:30pm because the waiter always busy that he can't get out bill. Also, I would like to said the main dishes is good and worth for the price but not the appetitsor.

    Restaurant wasn't busy, was only table at the time (6:30p on Wednesday); food was alright but not memorable- wife had the lamb dish but the fat was not rendered enough, hence was tough to cut and eat. Seafood linguine was ok.
