    overall experience, server was amazing. if food had been better I would have rated more. Ribs and chicken were not warm and were very dry. Went to get dessert and it was completely empty so went back and sat down and then asked server if she could check to see if the desserts had been replenished which they had but were going fast again.

    The menu really needs something to elevate it for the price being charged. There are very limited selections so they all really need to be spectacular for the price point.

    The buffet was pretty expensive for the variety of things on it. Could use more variety, but the ravioli and the mashed potatoes and the prime rib was amazing. The chicken was a little dry and the salads didn’t have enough dressing on them. Buns were a little hard on the outside, but soft in the middle. Desserts were like they were from M&M.

    It was my sons first horse race experience and they were disappointed the first races seemed rushed and then the last ones were laggy My husband and I had been years ago and the food was very disappointing this time my husband and boys could not even eat the prime rib it was too tough to chew and I felt there weee not enough options for the amount of money you have to pay Not sure we will be back or recommend

    Enjoyed the races we had a fun time with the company included, food was poor been many times and it’s gone down hill for options, hot food was awful only thing that we enjoyed was the fish and chips. Dessert table was ok. Server was nice but not super attentive at all times. We do enjoy the experience but for $55 pp not worth going back for that.

    My food sucked. Way overcooked. Will not be back. For what we got as a Valentine special 80 dollars per person I expected much more on your plate. A buffet may have been so much better and cheaper.

    Overall, we enjoyed our evening out, BUT , the positioning of our table meant that we were unable to see the races LIVE, which , after all was the main purpose in driving all the way to London, to eat at Top of the Fair!!! We could have entertained at home and watched the races on our large screen TV, instead of having to watch on the smaller television screens at the restaurant.

    We attended Friday night seating st 645 food was cold.fries were cold and dried out.Roast was cold as well. For the high cost of the dinner the food was expected to be at a premium.I would not recommend any one to attend a buffet dinner at top of the fair.Will never come back.Was very disappointing.

    Had a great time celebrating my sister's 65th birthday, our waitress was awesome very friendly and willing to get us what we needed. The food was amazing could hardly walk out of the building we were so full. And we actually won a little bit of money on the horse races which is an extra bonus

    For $55 buffet it is a total rip-off.Main course 2 choices, roast beef and fish and chips what a joke.No soup at all and the salad bar only have 6 different salads and 2 kinds of salad dressings.A small tray of fruit salad and cut-up cheeses.The dessert bar has several kinds of cookies and 4-5 different kinds of frozen cakes.l was very disappointed and wasted a night with my wife at this restaurant.

    The overall experience was nice ...however the website we hit on prior to reservations was misleading ..it said buffet was $50 however when the bill came it was$90...the food was good but nothing over and above what was advertised...the server was very good ...as for return visit I highly doubt we would return at those prices ...and not something an average person could afford...which seems to be the direction of most entertainment venues in today's world. Also noted that only 2 mutual open for a packed house...a lot of people locked out from vetting each night. Retired from the horse industry myself showed another nail in the coffin for a sport that is declining each year...

    Good food. Nice variety. Prime rib a little under cooked for others at my table, salmon was amazing! Salad selection was good as well as desserts! $9 “glass of wine” was ridiculous. Wine barley covered the bottom of the glass. Embarrassing.

    First off our server was excellent. The wine 4oz wine for $9 come-on really ??? The food some was okay some not so much . Salmon was good , Mashed potatoes were good, salad bar was good , Prime rib I know is served rare but was cooked very raw and it was 80% fat , chicken was so dry . The pans a couple of times were empty and stayed that way for quite some time . Dessert was very good . Overall I would rate you food at about a 4out of 10 and a $80 a person's unacceptable. The betting situation were very bad come on all those people and you had 2 girls on and 3 kiosks that work line ups were overwhelming and some didn't even get their bet in . From the crowd there was alot of annoyed people . We have been a least 4 times before Covid and enjoy it so much there was a lot of cut backs this time and cost more money . Actually your score on this year was a total fail . You get excited about spending New Years there with family and friends and you do pay good money to do so but not happy at all this year . We will not be returning next year which is sad because we really enjoy spending our New years there .

    Was charged $55 for dinner but the website said $50 - the food was really good but not $55 good, the selection was small. The server was really friendly but didn’t come around often. I called and left messages two days in a row as I had questions but nobody ever called me back.

    We were seated near the exit and people kept coming in out of the outside to smoke. they were smoking in a no smoking area and then kept coming back in, sometimes still blowing smoke as they entered inside. I asked if we could be moved because I was freezing and they said no. The place was half empty. I ended up getting sick over Christmas because of this. So thanks for that. I've been coming here for years and I've never been treated this bad and I don't think I'll be coming back.
