Calamari is very good
Mains are OK
Sea Bass very good
Service is terrible
Lots of excuses not just at our table but at all surrounding tables to the point were we were all talking about it

My fiancé and I had dinner at the Lord Nelson to celebrate our recent engagement. The romantic and intimate atmosphere of the restaurant was very welcoming. Although the food and drinks are quite expensive, you definitely get what you pay for. The service was fantastic and our meals were delicious. The only criticism that we had was that the vegetables were too hard and crunchy for our liking. Other than that, we would definitely recommend going to the Lord Nelson for a special occasion.

This is a family favourite of ours. We come for all occasions but this time enjoyed a beautiful evening out to Celebrate our moms 60th birthdays with all her grandchildren. Great food and make you feel very comfortable even while fine dining with kids.

We were celebrating a birthday as a couple. Scott saved the day , our other server had struggled with various things throughout the service. The bone in filet was raw and cold , it is difficult to prepare but the server did not make it right and struggled with words to mitigate things , it’s $71 plate and she be cooked properly. After we complained our server wasn’t attending to us , they placed a different waiter for our dessert and coffee , things seemed to improve a lot after this. I still gave 4 stars overall because I have been coming to the restaurant for years and I will overlook this one incident and appreciated the gentlemen at the end trying to rectify thing with us.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner on Monday evening. They have a fantastic selection of wines and I highly recommending trying the Butterfield Station Chardonnay. The food was of equal quality and I highly recommend the garlic bread, the goats cheese and balsamic vinegar appetizer, and the cherry jubilee dessert was both a show and palate delight. Great service, classy and intimate. Worth the drive.

The food was good, our server did not seem to want to talk to us I think because we were not regulars. Could not buy a glass of Canadian wine that was disappointing for me I like to support those wines. Place is a little expensive for what you get.

This place rarely disappoints. One problem is the noise level when it is fully booked, which it almost always is on weekend evenings but food and service are both excellent. One other complaint is lack of lactose free dessert offerings. Surely a tub of lactose free sherbet would be easy to have on hand even if they don't want to keep fruit available (which we were told they don't because they just have to "throw it out!"

I used a gift certificate to take a friend out for a birthday dinner. In most cases, a dessert is complimentary. this was not offered. Very expensive for the quality received. Bar looked nice. when we arrived, we were placed in a separate dining room so did not enjoy the ambiance of the main dining room.

I have been waiting for long time to go back to The Lord Nelson. I ordered the lobster tail and it was too dry my daughter said the same thing. I should have said something but I was with family and decided not to. My server was very entertaining. The lobster seemed to have no flavour. It was for my birthday which was in June 2017 and your restaurant was closed due to the fact that you had water damage. I came back in August 2018 and was disappointed wasn't how I remembered it.

It's our favourite place to celebrate special occasions. The food is always excellent, the portions are extremely generous and the service is attentive. While the starters are delicious you may wish to give them a pass if you plan to have dessert. The soft furnishings make it easy to carry on conversation and just enjoy the whole "fine dining" experience

Celebrating our anniversary at a top notch restaurant. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. Our meals were excellent (chicken marsala/Lake Huron perch) with very large portions. Really enjoyed our anniversary dessert, cherries jubilee, prepared at the table...very well put together. We enjoyed a private dining room off the main restaurant due to a 92 person party being held that evening...due to this, the noise level was a bit higher than normal but acceptable in the separate room.
