We had a reservation for a Monday in Feb, but didn't need it. There was one other table in the restaurant when we arrived at 11:30 am. Service was slow at best. Long wait between appie salad and main (20 mins) long wait to get the bill even though we were the only ones in there at the time of getting our bill. The food was well done, tasty and served hot, but the service was cold.

Thoroughly enjoyed an evening out at The Block. Food was great; service was good and wine was half price (on Sundays). Will be back!

Always great food and service. We go often because we get treated right here, which is important because my girlfriend has a lot of food allergies. We feel comfortable to eat here and we always enjoy it

Great parking. The food and drinks were excellent and our server was friendly and casual. The amount of local craft beer on tap is a major plus too!

We wanted to find a place to eat before a family funeral at Fosters. We chose this for location, but were so pleasantly surprised. Our waiter was attentive And super sweet. We are not big eaters, so ordered sandwiches and salads to share. Everything came on separate plates (they cut everything in half for us), and it was all really fresh and super tasty! This was a find! Our server made this very difficult lunch, relaxing and enjoyable ( she didn’t know why we were here so this was her natural manner). Thank you, and see you soon!

We love this restaurant and it’s one of our go to’s. Food was great, but as nice as our server was, we waited forever once we were sat to even place a drink order or our food order. She rarely came back to see how things were, so we had to keep asking the busgirl for things. Our waitress didn’t even tell us her name. Love the food, great spot for family and friends. We will come back, maybe our waitress was just having an off night.

Very nice restaurant with attentive staff. They went the extra mile in helping my mom with non gluten selections. The regular menu was good. The starter platter could have had more on it for 18.00 but the bread was really nice.

The parking is great, the ambience, nice quiet restaurant, the service spectacular. We had brunch and the potion size was small, my omelette a bit tasteless. But overall very enjoyable. We will go back

Great service, great food and drinks, family friendly. A little slow but within reason. No special note of the birthday celebration though. We’ll definitely eat here again as the whole family was happy with the food and experience.

service was amazing!! the food was a bit salty, there was 8 of us, and we all seemed to feel salt was a bit much. the calamari was good but salty, the nori pizza was good but salty. the beet salad was great! also had the prawn and sausage pasta, was good but also on the salty side. overall was a decent experience, but heavy on the salt

Went for an early dinner and even though it was Saturday the place was quite quiet. So needless to say service was excellent. Food was very good, had a burger and steak sandwich. Fries very good. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and very clean. There is a lounge there as well if you prefer that.

Nice casual atmosphere and we all enjoyed the food. The roast beef dip was tender and favorfull. Paired it with the beet salad which was excellent. Good selection of wines and friendly service. I will definitely return to try other menu items.

Made a large reservation and table was ready fir us when we arrived. They use linen napkins and ambience is lovely. They have decorated the place for the holidays and it is very festive. The waitress was lovely and accommodated our timing as we were heading to the theater after dining. The menu was varied and everyone enjoyed their meal. BTW they offer half priced bottles of wine (under $70) on Wednesdays. Waitress made the dining experience fun and inviting. Will definitely go there again!

I am tired of these surveys. If I like the food, service and value I will return. Every store and service sends these out, I’ve had enough. Don’t ask me again.

Feature fish dish of the day was arctic char- thought it would be fresh. It wasn’t and very dry. Too much oil on wild rice a spaghetti squash. My friend had a steak sandwich. Medium inside and tasty but charred on the outside. I’ve dined here often and it seems the quality of the food is decreasing each time. Too bad as we want to support local restaurants instead of going downtown. Menu items such as pork chop, lamb etc on previous menus taken out and y they were good!

I had a great spinach omelette and a nice glass of their featured red. The prices are reasonable, our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The atmosphere was pleasant and the noise level was low. We weren’t rushed, and six of us spent a pleasant couple of hours over lunch there.
