    I was at Bentwood with my husband and a friend for dinner before the show. It was a surprisingly good experience! I was expecting pub food level but it was actually a very dicey restaurant. We ordered the Swanky burger, shrimp risotto, and chicken pesto penne for entree and they all tasted really delicious. I forgot our waitress’s name but she was amazing too. I will definitely come back.

    The food was great (burger, truffle fries, Caesar salad, Margherita pizza) and our server, Georgia, was fantastic! We attended a Second City show right after dinner, but would definitely pop in again even if we're not going to a show.

    We had reservations before a show and were a group of 10. Most of us pre-purchased the Price Fix menu. Most of the meals were great but the vegetarian taco bowl is awful- can’t eat a taco cause the shell is cut in half and therefore decorative, and the tofu is raw and unflavoured. Yuck. The service was abysmal, I am not sure why the waitress was mad at us- yes we had to switch some seats at the beginning and yes some People asked for changes to food items, and yes the rest of our party arrived late. So we were not perfect customers. But her eye rolling and rudeness was perhaps the worst I’ve experienced ever, especially at a restaurant that feels “fancy”. Refused to take a picture of us. Sigh, happy birthday to me! The show was fantastic however and I like that you can take left over food/drinks/dessert over to the show. Very convenient for a bunch of people Trying to get downtown on a Friday night in mega QEW closures-baseball game traffic.

    The food was great, service tho could have been better. Started out really good, as the meal went on saw less and less of our waitress( which could always be a good or bad thing)

    Our server during our meal was ok she did check on us to see how everything was but then when we came out of the shower to have a coffee it was the same person and we felt unseen. It took 15 minutes for 3 regular coffee and 1 decaf to come out (their Nespresso was not working we were told). Then when she came to the table she apologized that they were making a new pot but but the coffee tasted pretty bad and lukewarm. We were there in March first and enjoyed it and the service was great. This time we ordered the same meal and it was quite different than when we ordered it in March. The Bentwood burger was way too overdressed and fell right apart into a puddle on my father in law’s plate. He had to eat it with a fork and knife after about 3 bites. Probably doesn’t need the lettuce and tomato on it and the bun doesn’t need to be grilled in both sides, it became mush. We like the experience at the show but we won’t return to the restaurant.

    Our server Le was great as well as manager Ronnie and supporting staff. It was perfect to catch up with friends before enjoying the Second City show.
