Easter brunch was delicious but rather expensive...almost double the normal Sunday brunch price with no extras that I could see!

Took our son and daughter-in-law out for his birthday. Food as always excellent. Wish they had a 6, 8 and 10 oz prime rib as 6 is a bit too small once it’s cooked up and 10 oz is too big for most. The chicken was juicy and amazing. My husband thought his salmon was a bit undercooked but he eat it and didn’t say anything.

Very good Brie appetizer along with the mushroom soup and smoked tomato bisque. Truly miss the mushroom bisque from years back

Lovely experience! Our first time and we thoroughly enjoyed. Great for a special occasion. It was just the 2 of us but noticed that they can accommodate bigger groups. Food was delicious. Excellent quality and variety of choices. Will definitely be back.

The dinner, from appetizer, to dessert was outstanding.

I'm a Rack of Lamb person and it was one of the best I've had in some time!

The service was superb..Even to the point of bringing us a piece of cake with a sparkler for our anniversary.

We will definitely be back.....

The assortment of food was amazing! The individuals working the stations were polite and engaging.
Our servers were attentive while giving us privacy to enjoy our meal.

Hello
The venue was beautiful. The hostess was wonderful. The food was great. What could have made it a better experience was if the server had asked me if I wanted a refill on my pop.

I had also said no lettuce and tomato on my burger and it came with it on it.

Thank you.
Tracy

The service, the ambience and food were all excellent! I didn’t enjoy the salmon cakes as it was dried out from sitting in the buffet but all the other items were amazing! There was lots to choose from and my young daughters all found something they enjoyed eating as well. We’ve decided we are going to make it a tradition to come for brunch on our birthdays.

This is the first time my husband and I have tried the Sunday brunch. It was delicious! We were there right at 10, so it was very quiet. We only had two other people in our seating area. The food was fresh and delicious and we were very impressed by the variety!

Service was wonderful. Food was very tasty but soup was luke warm. My sister in law said her prime rib sandwich was okay. Cooked well but no flavour.
We’ve eaten here before and other dishes were better.
Would recommend it. As previous food experiences were better.

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.
