Food was good. First visit, found on Open Table. Our server was good but does not have the skills to match a restaurant of that level. We had to look for him on a few occasions and while he must have been busy, it was a bit annoying to wait for him for wine and for the check and then payment at the end of the dinner. A good practice would also be for the server to mention the price of the special not on the menu. One guest ordered a rib eye steak and because of the noise, we could not here that it was Wagyu beef, which calls for a high price we understand. Bit of a surprise to see the item at $160 on the check while most main dish were in the 50-70$ ballpark. Paying was not a problem, the steak was absolutely fabulous, like I said, I think that an item priced at $100 over most of the item menu would deserve a friendly notice to patrons.

We have been to the restaurant on several different occasions and most recently we went to celebrate our daughters 21st birthday. My parents joined in for the special occasion and this was their first time there. They raved over the quality of the service, the friendly, professional staff and the outstanding meal. The Lord Nelson has an impeccable reputation and we will continue to dine there for as long as we live in the area.

we found the place to be nice looking on the inside. found the wait staff attentive but a little overdone. we did not really see the need for more than 1 waitstaff? we were brought sauvignon when we ordered chardonnay (this was corrected quickly). there was a lack of vegetarian dishes available for entree choices. I guess the your regular clientele is on the upper scale as we found the meal pricing out of our general price range ($160.00 - our $100 gift card) when we have had better meals and choices at more reasonable price points. for an upscale menu we found no napkin placed on our lap and the wait staff to reach across the table without excusing the intrusion. our bill at the end of the night had our guests appetizer (no big deal this has happened in other establishments too, but 2 waiters and an incorrect billing?). all -in- all i would say our visit was only borderline satisfactory and i would definitely have a hard time recommending your establishment.

We had originally booked this reservation in January, but The Lord Nelson cancelled the reservation due to water damage. We rescheduled the reservation in February, but sadly my Father was in ICU and passed away. We rescheduled in March and I conveyed this information to our server along with the information that we were celebrating 3 birthdays, but nothing was done to make our long awaited celebration special. We were quite disappointed in the lack of interest in our celebration that took so long, especially when the Lord Nelson cancelled our original reservation and yet we persevered in trying the restaurant.

This was NOT 'Fine Dining'. For the price we were very disappointed! Poor service, waited too long for meal, not very accomodating for Vegan guest, steaks not cooked to our specifications.

As always, the food was tasty and the service excellent. We were however, disappointed with the Valentine's menu. We were unable to order our standard favourite - Oyster's Rockefeller and the menu featured no poultry, pork or fish (although there was shrimp and lobster). We love the Lord Nelson but won't visit again when there is a 'special occasion menu'.

The restaurant was "okay", spend over $200 with only 2 glasses of wine and no dessert and get charged $4.25 for a black coffee. How chincey can you get. Don't see a reason to return.

I had the ceasar salad as did my girlfriend. It was awesome. I had veal and was surprised at the amount of food on my plate. Very generous portions. My girlfriend had the Caesar salad and the pepper steak and same thing, generous portion and she loved the Caesar salad too. The food was delicious and the service was great. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and would go back anytime.

Chose to come back to the Lord Nelson for a celebration dinner after many impressive meals in past, to be be very disappointed. We sat ignored for an hour with our menus closed before being offered the dinner special options. The waiter served the wrong appetizer and removed it, with patronizing remark about being more expensive. Our entrees took another hour more to be served. 4 people crowded in small table, next to service carts, my chair was hit at least 12 times by server. The noise level so high we couldn’t hear each other speak. coffees were finished before desserts were served. Other tables were served and finished much quicker and with more server interaction, made us feel like second class patrons. Food was exceptional as always however, it’s unlikely we’ll return based on poor service.

Food was amazing... Very noisy atmosphere however. Also, we were somewhat "forced" by the waiter to accept a food item nobody had ordered.. And in a rather rude manner as well. Large table in the middle of the dining area was extremely noisy and most of us couldn't even talk to one another. Other than that... Well.....

Food was amazing as always. Service was upsetting . We have been there in numerous occasions. This visit we felt like an inconvenience to the server. Not only did we have to flag down th server... to no avail, but the server basically ignored us. He was not overly busy, just very standoffish. Having been in the service industry for many years, I found his behaviour a little rude. We brought friends that we have not seen in awhile and who had never been to Lord Nelson. Needless to say, they will not be back. Very disappointing.

I’ve been here several times over the years - excellent food - especially the variety of steaks - I always recommend the 20 oz ribeye! Some of the veal options are excellent as well - a little overpriced for appetizers though. Service is usually excellent, however this recent visit I felt the girl at reception was not very courteous or welcoming - Would still recommend this restaurant to all of my family and friends for an excellent meal in fine surroundings
