    Dined here for Victoria Day weekend Sunday brunch. The menu is heavy on breakfast items and it would be nice if they offered a salad or sandwich option as well. I had the smoked brisket hash and my wife the eggs Benedict. Our other guests had mushroom omelettes. We all thought the food was fantastic! The view is great as well being in the heart of the 1000 Islands. We will be back again!

    My wife, daughter and I had dinner at the Ivy Lea on Mother's day. It's a beautiful restaurant ... tremendous ambience with great views over the marina and the St Lawrence. The food was OK, although I wouldn't say it was spectacular. Our waitress was very good, but the service was very slow (albeit not her fault). We had to wait a long time to have our drinks and food order taken and an unusually long time to be served. We noticed that the folks on a nearby table were also unhappy about having to wait so long. I suspect that the restaurant is understaffed. But, to be fair, it was Mother's day so perhaps it was a little busier than usual. Overall, I'd say the Ivy Lea is worth a visit if you are celebrating a special occasion (it isn't cheap!). But it might be best going on a midweek day/evening when it's not likely to be very busy.

    Food , waitress and atmosphere were good. No hot water in the mens bathroom. One of the staff was tending the dessert table and dropped serving tongs on the floor and then placed them back at the dessert table. I notified staff and they replaced all the tongs at the dessert station. That same staff member kept moving desserts around on the table (seemed fixated on this like it was his main mission in life), got icing on his fingers, licked off his fingers and kept tending the dessert table touching plates, serving tongs ect. This happened multiple times. I would recommend this staff member take a food safety course. This guy was disappointing to see as this Resturant is normally very nice, of higher fine dining quality and clean.

    The food is very good but cannot compete with the scenery! The terrace over viewing the marina and the 1000 island is just amazing

    We had a truly wonderful evening, and the food was exquisite. Our waitress, Riley, was a pleasure. The only issue was that due to staffing shortages in the kitchen, it took a long time to be served our main course. The restaurant just opened for 2024 a week ago, so hopefully that issue is solved soon. For starters, my wife enjoyed the Digby Scallops, and I had the Thai Beef Carpaccio that was utterly sublime when combined with the rosemary focaccia. We both had the Petite Tender (beef tenderloin), on a bed of savoury mashed potatoes and kale, with perfectly done cippolini onions (slightly larger than cocktail onions), drizzled with a red wine demi-glaze. Food is excellent, and an excellent wine list. We will be back.

    I’ve been to the Fireside three times, the first time, a girlfriend and I had ordered the brisket tacos which we found quite salty, someone ordered the chicken wings…also salty, the chicken pot pie and burger amazing. The guys were disappointed in the beer selection when there was one and when received was warm in temperature. I’m not sure I’d return in the winter only because it was very cold making it uncomfortable and even though the music was amazing, it was too loud, I couldn’t hear anyone across/down the table from me. Thanks
