It was a busy evening. Food was tasty but a bit slow arriving and could have been warmer.

We were seated in a lower level which you had to access through back hallways. Only one other table taken. It was so dark we couldn’t read the menu, we had to use phone flashlights. The appetizer we chose was calamari which was cooked well, unfortunately it was swimming in sweet Thai Chile sauce, ruined it completely. We had table service, chateaubriand. The table service was entertaining however, the vegetables, specifically the broccoli was not even slightly cooked. The red peppers were charred and mushy tomatoes were not edible. The meat was underdone and all was cold. The béarnaise sauce was so thick, it did not pour. Dessert was Creme brûlée, which was chard on the one side but overall good. Served with a whipped Creme with no sugar in mine, therefore whipped butter, my date was fortunate to proper whipped Creme, and unripe strawberry. Were had the room to ourselves for most of the time, privacy was nice. It is too bad the food was poor.

We booked The Gates to celebrate Valentine’s Day. We obtained a table for the 6:00 seating. Our meal was delicious, the server was attentive but not hovering. A couple with two small children were at the next table. I’m sure they were nervous about their children’s behaviour but they did very well. All in all a good evening.

A big thank you to our server. We forgot our left overs and when we returned to pick it up the table was already cleaned. our server apologized a lot for already cleaning the table which was outstanding customer service. He offered to send food out to our address the next day but since we live out side the city he gave us a gift card. We really enjoy your restaurant and we will come back again. Thank you again to our server for showing excellent customer service. Until next visit

Sunday brunch was disappointing. Average items we could find anywhere. Carvey was one very small roast. For the price we were expecting to be wowed. Best part was the orange juice, that's it. Very unfortunate because it's a great location. Strangely, the staff never asked if we enjoyed our meal, almost like they knew it was....underwhelming. We wouldn't recommend or return to The Gates.

The building itself is very beautiful in such a wonderful setting.

The food we had did not stand out to us. It was dissappointing spending that kind of money on food that looked beautiful but lacked flavour.

we have been at the Gates for the brunch numerous times, this was the first time for dinner. Absolutely delicious. I had the roast chicken, hubs had duck and dad had prime rib. We also started with calamari and the ribs. The ribs were outstanding. Beautiful ambience and beautiful grounds at night. A++++++

There were only 3 other tables there when we went for dinner and the service was painfully slow.. the food was also mediocre for the price. I would not recommended this restaurant (food, value and service is better at The Keg).

Went to The Gates with another couple on Dec. 28, 2018 for dinner. The ambiance and music were wonderful. The room temperature was comfortable and there was little noise from the 4 other tables occupied in the area. The food was excellent, one of the best steaks I have had! The service was attentive and gracious. The whole evening was very enjoyable. I highly recommend this establishment! I have been there before several times for lunch, dinner and other receptions and have always had a good experience.

Our server was nice, but did not seem to be trained in fine dining service. While the food arrived promptly, the service was far from comparable to other fine dining restaurants in the city.

We enjoyed the New York steak and calamari, but unfouruntately the pork dish was dry and bland, and the vegetables undercooked. Overall for $50+ per plate, it was just okay. We did however appreciate the piece of cake that was given to celebrate a birthday.

Food was great staff very efficient friendly and unpretentois all good!
We were seated in the area by the entrance. Other end were 4 young people , having a good evening and lots of loud laughter. We had to wait while the noise level was at peak . I think a couple of drapes or some sound baffles would help. Just a thought as I’m sure this has disrupted others as well . Don’t fault the young folks , just the acoustics of the area

As we haven't been here for the Sunday Brunch Buffet for awhile, we wanted to see how it compared to other locations also offering the Sunday Brunch Buffet. The first thing that we knew before going was the price for an adult/senior brunch - Gates charges $45 with no discount for seniors (65+). So for the price of one adult/senior brunch ($45) at Gates versus Dalton's (Best Western - Wellington Ave) where both me and my wife could have the Sunday Brunch for less than $45 (with senior's discount). The food offering at both locations is fairly identical with Gates having perhaps a better dessert selection but otherwise they are equal. Gates needs to offer a senior's discount in order for us to return on a regular basis (as we do at Dalton's). $45 for one adult/senior for a meal is a little too much to pay. People that I know wouldn't pay $45 for one Sunday Brunch Buffet.

Very nice evening overall. We had 8 entrees and 4 appetizers. One dish was dry and over cooked out of all of them, but we were refunded for that. That’s a pretty amazing ratio. We had a private room, which was good as it sounded like people were having a good and noisy time by the bathroom so we closed the door and the noise was greatly reduced.
Even in the private room, the service was phenomenal. Our waters never ran out and the staff was very helpful and wonderful.

I found the English muffin for the eggs Benedict was too firmly toasted on the base. It was difficult to cut through.

The service was lacking in the refill of beverages department, but very pleasant otherwise.

Overall, a very pleasant experience, as usual! We missed seeing the beautiful horses 😔. Wonderful place to relax on a quiet date!
