    Another great experience at this gem of a restaurant in DTK! Amazing drinks and apps were enjoyed by 2 friends catching up! Fried Shishito Peppers and Korean Nachos were to die for! Pair those with the specialty drink the “Bean Shooter” Jager / Cassis / Vanilla Syrup / Amarena Cherry Syrup / Sour Cherry Bitters with Lemon juice and Egg Whites! If you haven’t been fortunate to dine there yet, you better put it on your list of places to visit!

    Our waiter was wonderful. Very attentive. Bar service was horrible. We waited longer for our drinks than our food! The bar was not even that busy and it still took forever to get a drink! Lovely live music we asked to move to a closer booth which was empty and they told us we could not. They were not accommodating and we spent a lot of money there so they should have been!

    My friends and I were getting together to celebrate my career change, and what better way than to do it in style. Rich Uncle’s provided the perfect ambiance for an intimate dinner, and the perfect meal to go with it. Even though it was last minute, they were accommodating of a few food allergies at the table, and provided impeccable service. They helped make a great night an even better one. A few of my friends are even asking about when the next dinner will be, and if we can go back. An 11/10 experience!

    When we arrived we were placed in the wrong section. The waiter explained to us that the manager had moved our reservation as more people would be able to sit where we had reserved. We were firstly surprised to hear that. Secondly, we were upset that that wasn’t communicated until they sat us at a table. The waiter ended up having to confront the manager for us, we didn’t ask him to be he kindly did. We then got moved to where we got booked. The manager passed our table glaring at us multiple times. Not the most comfortable experience that’s forsure. We never complain but being a special night out we wanted to be seated in the Chef’s Table area. We booked it that way and shouldn’t have been questioned or changed for being able to book it that way. Anyways, the food was amazing and our server was extremely kind and communicated clearly!

    The Rich Uncle TavernResponded on May 9, 2022Hello, I wanted to reach out and apologize for your time on Friday. Being seated in the front was an honest mistake of reading the tags incorrectly, not seating capacity, so I do apologize for that. To be fully transparent, I was personally recouping from a severe flu and still not feeling well, but unable to leave work yet, so I do apologize for my demeanor as well. There was truly no issue with you moving to the Chef Table. Hopefully we will see you again soon and can redo this experience.

    This an unfortunate dinner out, it was chaos, service was very slow. Staff was unorganized. We had to leave to get to our show and our dinner hadn't even been started after waiting for an hour

    The Rich Uncle TavernResponded on May 2, 2022Hi there, We do apologize to hear you had such an unfortunate experience. Sunday was a bit of a difficult time for us and a learning experience for sure. If you could please connect with me at julia@richuncletavern.ca I would love the opportunity to find a way to remedy this situation and ensure you have a much better experience next time.

    Update: Julia reached out after our first visit and explained they had issues and invited us to give the restaurant a second try. We Revisited the restaurant and had a great experience. Food service and ambiance were all good. Original review: VERY long waits meant having to gulp down our food before leaving for the theatre. Despite the wait, food arrived cool/warm.

    The Rich Uncle TavernResponded on May 2, 2022Hi Russ, Sunday was a bit of a hard day for us. We are terribly sorry you had a poor experience as this is not typical of the type of service we aim to offer all our guests. If you could please reach out to julia@richuncletavern.ca, we would love the opportunity to hear about your experience and hopefully find a way to remedy it and ensure your next visit with us is much better. Hopefully we will hear from you soon and again greatly apologize for your time.

    We were on a time crunch to make our concert and the staff more than accommodated us. Three of our party had the burgers and said they were great. I opted for the soup and flatbread of the day… they did not disappoint. Great flavour. Will definitely return.

    Nice restaurant in downtown Kitchener. Loved the exposed brick and plank flooring. Food was really good and loved the crispy capers on the Caesar salad. Our server was super nice and attentive. We had a seat by the window, but a lot of people chose to sit at the bar which would be a great place to just chill and have a cocktail. Will definitely come here again.

    We were greeted quickly by the host in a friendly, yet professional manner. The menu was varied with good options for both of us. We order the confit duck leg and it was beautifully presented, although it could have used something green on the plate. The root vegetables were delicious and it all lay on a cauliflower purée. The Shiraz was perfect with it. We split the Turtle Cheesecake which was great and even further enhanced with a scoop of ice cream. Excellent coffee followed. Bianca provided outstanding service!

    It may not have been the right place to celebrate an 82nd birthday. The entrees were good, the service started out okay, but we sat too long with dirty plates and a salad and dessert were both forgotten. Finally, although I sent a message about the birthday we were celebrating, nothing was done to acknowledge it until, as we were walking out, the hostess asked us whose birthday it was. In the end, it was a disappointing dinner.
