    Dine Around menu at The Courtney Room was ODD. We had 2 different starters (Porchetta a Teste and Cheese Custard), so we could taste each others. Both of these were a bust, strange texture... like headcheese, ewww! and the custard had a gellatinus texture and no flavour. 2nd course was good - Short Ribs - tasty but a little dry, and the side veggies were either soggy or not cooked enough. Desserts were awful. I ordered a martini with Tanquery, and it jumped from the house price of $15 to $27 - say what?!?!? Sadly it was not that good, but I will remember it.... We had wine pairings with 2 of the courses, which were very nice. Our bill was $300 with tip. Not great value for $. Wait staff was excellent and it is a nice, attractive restaurant. It was our first time at this restaurant, but I'm not sure if we will have a second try.

    Over 1.5 hours for lunch with a set menu. Most of the time spent waiting and wondering. Main course was inedible, fish and chips was very fishy and dry plus watery (gross). I sent it back but no one checked on us until my partner had finished his main so I didn’t have time to order another dish. Disappointing, we will not go back.

    Although we have been to the Courtney Room before, Friday at lunchtime was by far the slowest service we've ever had. I typically enjoy a slower more lingered meal, especially during a business meeting, but when I noticed the table across from us received their meals, ate their meals and had their plates cleared away before we even received our meals, it triggered for me that something was a little off. Service too was good at the beginning, with the server being on top of filling our waters, and checking in, but once we received our meals, things really fell off. In addition, after lunch, we ordered various espresso drinks, and the person who took our order was not the one who brought us our drinks. Furthermore we had to ask twice for cream and sweeteners. It was overall not a very smooth process. When you attend a fine dining restaurant, you expect a certain level of service, and unfortunately on Friday we did not receive that at all. Food was exceptional, but without the service to carry it through, the food unfortunately can't carry itself. It's the experience and service that need to shine as well.

    The Courtney RoomResponded 7 days agoHello Katie, Thank you for sharing your experience from lunch on Friday and for the kind words regarding the food. We understand your frustration with timing and service - there certainly was a lag with your table receiving your meals. We completely agree - service needs to shine as well and we are sorry that it did not on Friday. Sincerely, Renée Lauzon Food & Beverage Manager

    Outside of noise from a gathering of officials, we had a good time. With my hearing issues, it was hard to hear my wife or the serving staff because of the amount of people talking in non-hushed voices.

    We dined at The Courtney Room because it was on the Dina Around Town list and we had never been here before. What a wonderful food experience. Our entrée of the Parmesan Roasted Chicken was just outstanding, along with the crispy potato cake. The appetizer salad was simple with a delicious dressing. We were happy with the simple salad as the rest of the meal could not handle a heavy salad. I hope we can return some day.

    Dine Around dinner with partner and parents. Vegan courses were tasty but not particularly filling for the price point - especially in comparison to the non-vegan options ordered by others in our party, which had substantially more food volume. Nonetheless, appreciated having options for each course! We were also extremely pleased to meet the Sommelier, Colin, and enjoyed each of his recommendations! Cocktails were also very nice. Thank you!

    Our main courses were excellent. The only thing I would say is the caviar appetizer would be better if there was less potato Bellini. The Bellini over powered the caviar.

    $110 each for the tasting menu was a fair price given similar experiences elsewhere. The size and quality of the food items were excellent. The paired wines were variable as to their enjoyabilily , and at $90 per person, they were vastly overpriced. The experience came to $500 with taxes and tip, for two. Not something I will happily experience again!

    Service was very slow, they didn't even serve water until I requested the hostess after 20 mins to send the waiter. It happen throughout the night, they would not ask if we needed anything else, it's like they forgot we were there.

    Sablefish dish was superb and superbly presented. Ravioli were delicious and perfectly prepared. We thought it odd that there wasn't a selection of salads as starters but were pleased with our side green and pickled veggie salads that our waiter offered us. The desserts and capps were excellent too. The only disappointment was the bread dish, which is deemed a starter (one pays for it). The bread was oddly and very thinly sliced and dry. The cultured butter was fine but not remarkable. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. TCR is an excellent restaurant in the equally lovely Magnolia Hotel. We'll be back.

    Excellent service in a relaxing atmosphere. Food was very good, but a couple of the things we ordered had the same flavour profile (we did the casual plates and an appy). Easily fixed by reading the descriptions more closely.

    I especially want to highlight the spectacular service from a gal with light brown hair tied back ... sorry don't know her name-- she went off before we wrapped up. She reached out in every respect--seating, menu, checking quality of the OJ, for examples, All around best restaurant experience lately! Thank you!

    Service was outstanding. We did the tasting menu and wine pairing. Tasting menu was a bit odd with some unusual combinations that just didn't quite work. Wine pairings were spot on which we really enjoyed. Every server that came by was fantastic and made the evening - without that it would have been a very disappointing evening.

    Dined here last night and had a magical experience. It was the rare instance of every element in a restaurant being on point and every staff interaction supporting that. Our server Helene was warm, professional and engaging, but just at the table long enough to make us feel looked after. It is a hard balance to achieve but she got it bang on. Our sommelier Jack offered superb wine pairing suggestions for all our dishes. Food was great, wines were outstanding and the whole evening was just handled so professionally by all the different staff (six in total) who served our table. Impressive. we are already planning a return.
