My third time coming to this restaurant this month, but unfortunately the food was not as good as the previous two times. I'm not sure if the day of the week made a difference, but I was very impressed the first time, happy the second time, and somewhat indifferent this last time. I'm not sure if I'll be back quite as often in the future.

Great quality food and comfortable dining experience. VR room was extremely fun and worth it. Service was incredible from Carmen- great recommendations and friendly, patient, professional attitude. Can’t wait to come back!

Food was ok, but not great. Got the pizza, it was pretty bland. Sangria was very weak. Falafel was dry.

Noise level was ridiculously high. Worth adding hand sanitizers everywhere given what everyone is touching. Was not happy when bill was split and scene points could any be used by one person. I made the reso and paid the majority of the bill and go no points as we were told this after the fact

Food was good, but not great. The noise level is crazy in this place. If you love not being able to carry a conversation with friends take them here. I feel that the games should be in a separate room from the food areas. Also, a person was allowed to have a dog sitting with him at the bar???

A fun place to have a snack or meal and then play some video games. The game vouchers are half price if you have a meal, so factor that into your day out. My son and I shared a pizza and caesar salad for dinner. It was enough food for the two of us. Watch out for the water carafe - it doesn't pour cleanly and will spill all over the table.

great family fun! Did the VOID and a few games (love pinball). Food menu was good...so much better than just burgers and fries, lots of fresh options. Can be quite loud though, so after a bit need to get out.

This was the second time we booked with rec room and both times disappointed. We booked this for the super bowl over 1 week in advance and were called on the day to reconfirm and If we were there for the game. They promised us a good table for 4, when we arrived all tables were empty but the waitress sat us on a table where the screen was so far away there was no point to watch! Plus the other 2 people had no screen at all!! We asked to move o a different table and were told all of them are reserved! This is the only one available. We mentioned that ours is reserved too and we specifically came to see the Super Bowl. No attempt was made to reseat us despite all tables still empty . When we told her we are going to gave to leave the waitress couldn't care less and just said sorry! Second time this happened, same reason! Last time was for a raptors game. Super disappointed and staff don't care. Will not visit again and we should actually get compensation for driving all the way to this place and then being turned away twice! Really should work on your customer service skills since this is super frustrating service. Worst experience . Would appreciate some feedback or rebate for this inconvenience not once but twice!!!

Went for a quiet dinner after the VR experience. Burger was very tasty. Went on weekday night so kinda quiet. I can only image the noise at weekend. Fun adult arcade

Ideal place to dinner with family, friends and mainly kids. My family and I had a good time on a special Friday night. I do not recommend the place if you want a quiet restaurant to dinner.

It’s a fun atmosphere, but the Nachos, Fried Green beans were not good. Dessert mini doughnut balls and cheesecake were good.

We were there. Spending lots of money. I had to make the second reservation because we passed the 2 hour limit, even though it was not very busy. Then, after loading my nephews armbands twice, we find out the system is down, so we left with no prizes. I only get to see them a couple times a year and we always go to the rec room. This time was not cool

Great spot with lots of room and good food. Don't visit if you're looking for a quiet or intimate setting, but if you're good with lots of movement and energy this is a must visit.

I ordered the chipotle wings and I got the buffalo. The serve went and changed it but it took over 20 mins. So buy the time I got it I ended up eating some of my husband and son’s food. They charge me for it. The service was slow as well. I think they didn’t have enough servers, our serve was nice.

I ordered a Caesar & they were out of Clamato. I was disappointed as it sounded delicious on the menu. No big deal, I chose another drink. I then ordered the seafood pasta, our server came back to say it wasn’t available. She didn’t ask if we wanted any other drinks for the rest of the meal, no offer of coffee, tea or dessert. I asked for a container to put my leftovers in & she brought me 2 extra small containers as they were out of the bigger size. I was expected to put 2 pizza slices in containers half their size! We then proceeded to wait 20 minutes before we saw her again to pay the bill. Quite possibly one of the worst service experiences I’ve ever encountered.

I made a reservation for 6 people and we have 2 extra friends joining us last minute. The host was accommodating and quickly added two more seats to our table. Our server was very friendly. It took a bit to get our bill and pay. Then we stay to play some games and had lots of fun

The best thing on the menu is the appetizer of crispy beans. Ordered the skirt steak with fries and they did not get it right at all, even on the 3rd try. Everyone else had eaten, I took the meal to go and gave it to a homeless person which was the highlight of the evening. Listening skills are important in a server.

The Rec Room is decent by Toronto standards. The pork sliders are more bun than meat. The Mac and cheese was good. The game choices are ok, not much better than your typical Niagara Falls arcade (too many small children’s games for a more adult oriented establishment)
The sports screen and bar are great.
Overall a nice place and staff are friendly. Plenty of room for improvement in games and food. Also, wait staff automatically choose your tip percentage before handing you machine, so be aware you can change it if you choose (as they stand over you)
