On a last minute decision we made a reservation for dinner and were glad we did. We had a window table, the food was really tasty (although the chicken marsala was not as tender as expected). Service was good to start but waned as dinner progressed - our server was very friendly and helpful in menu selection. Our only complaint (not restaurant's fault) is that the patrons behind us did not remember to use their "inside voice" and made it difficult for us to have quiet conversation. Overall it was a good experience and we will return again!

Have dined here many times but menu seems to have changed. For those not eating meat poultry or fish, there aren't a lot of options. They've also taken away more casual options like sandwiches & sides. Also noise level was very high as they were busy. Hard to have a conversation at times with friends. I much prefer it in the summer when you can sit out on the patio.

The waitress could have been more welcoming and started off the evening better. We just got menus. Had to tell her we wanted drinks. The sequence of menus & ordering drinks was backwards. She needed to smile more. Made us feel it was very much a transaction. Maybe she was having a tough day and it happens.

Dinner was amazing as always! My son had the filet minion and loved it, it was cooked just the way he requested. The oven baked penne was absolutely amazing, so tasty. The server was great and took great care of us. It was a tad loud with a group behind us, however not delectable in our perception as it was uncontrollable to the restaurant staff.

We were the only people inside the restaurant, single waitress very busy dealing with tables outside. Service had long delays due to lack of staff. I had indicated on my reservation that we were celebrating an anniversary.... not a memorable experience.

We noted in our reservations that it was our anniversary and there was no hostess we were told to seat ourselves and there was a large party sat next to us that was overly loud and obnoxious. The menu sounds more exciting than the food that came out, just ok experience. The little be music was nice but it was in a different area and we were not told in advance where it was

We selected this restaurant because it was advertised as having live music.

We reserved through OpenTable and requested to be seated within view of the live music. We arrived 5 minutes early and mentioned to the older lady who was at the hostess desk that we were a few min early for our reservation and as per the note on our reservation, we would like to have a table in view of the live band.

The lady proceeded to bring us to a table which was in a completely different room than the band - we could not see or barely even hear the music. Once we arrived at the table, we (again) asked if we could please be seated within the room where the band was playing. She told us to sit there for the time being and she would return to bring us to our new table. Our reservation was 3 days ago and we are still waiting for her to come back.

We were left there for about 25 min before our server arrived to take drink orders. At that point, we gave up on seeing the band. We were forgotten about several times during the meal. Our glasses were empty for most of our dinner, dirty plates were not picked up and on average we waited 30 minutes between courses. We ordered cocktails, appetizers and mains. We had intentions of ordering desserts but our dinner plates sat in front of us for over 30 minutes after we finished eating - by the time our server showed up, we were so tired of sitting there that we asked for the bill instead.

If you are looking for a good meal and half decent service, go somewhere else, you will be disappointed here. We were. I am 100% positive that if this restaurant did not offer live music, they would be out of business.

(If the older lady at the hostess desk is reading this, we want you to know that we saw you avoid walking past our table 3 or 4 times after you promised you would be back. Someone with proper customer service would have AT LEAST came over to explain why we could not have the table we requested. We are embarrassed for you).

Great Ambiance, definitely not a Mediterranean focused cuisine, food was very mediocre, appetizer was brought out along-with the entree, which the hostess took back on request. Food was not great. Pasta sucked, pizza was mediocre. Reservation time between OpenTable and restaurant was off by 15min but didn’t have to wait thankfully. Probably won’t be back anytime soon.

Food was flavourful but timing on delivery of our first course and our main course was off. The main was taken back to be kept warm :-(. We waited about 15 minutes for a missing component of our first course and which meant our main course sat under heat lamps and was brought back before we were finished with our first course!

The Shore was our "go to" place until this past Saturday night. We don't know what happened! Dinner was not nearly as good as it always was. We asked for some bread with dinner - we were offered sliced bread with Margarine (??). A real shame as we raved to our friends about this restaurant. We won't be back. :-(

We would have preferred to sit outside becasue it was a beautiful day but the tables and chairs were worn in and unenticing and thus the ambiance outside was not appealing. The patio could be updated. The dining room was better but we were looking forward to the windows to be open. However, the pasta dishes were excellent but my fajita entree had very little steak and the equivalent of three peppers and onions. I wouldn't order the fajitas again. Our waiter was very attentive, intuitive and overall great.

The Shore has a great atmosphere with a great selection of food. From stone baked pizza or a sirloin fajita to filet mignon or lamb tenderloin. Something for everyone is on the menu and for the money it is one of the best deals in Port Credit.

Fathers Day meal. Placed seemed understaffed. Had to call on people to even get to our table for water and drinks orders. Service improved once we raised our concerns. Oysters were very good. Remainder of meal was really just average. Very little imagination in the protein / vegetables/ starch combinations. Satisfied but not memorable.

Friends came from as far as Hamilton to dine. We sat in the dining room which suited us well. The atmosphere was extremely pleasant, the food was absolutely delicious, and the band playing at the bar managed to have us dancing in our seats :) A very good time was enjoyed by all.
