We waited for 10 min or more to be asked for our order. My appetizer came my husband soup did not show up at all after my appetizer we had to wait for an hour to get our food , the kids were so hungry. The food was ok nothing special. Our waitress was amazing she was running around to make sure all is ok and super polite super funny and helpful.

Flavour wise, excellent... food was delayed due to feature being too popular so a new batch was in the works. They made it right by offering a free appy while we waited. Appy was awesome... except for Caesar salad which was fresh and crisp, but lacking in dressing. When main finally arrived (filet mignon, feature and seafood pasta), my daughters pasta was hot but our dinners were just warm at best (I thought it was fresh feature we were waiting on?). But, the flavours were awesome on all our dishes - too bad about the temp. They quickly heated my steak up, bringing it up to a medium but the flavour made up for that. At the end and to our surprise, they comped all our food. We just had to pay for our booze - we took a taxi so booze was racking up... anyway, things happen in the restaurant business and The Pottery did everything to try and make it right on a busy Saturday Family Day weekend. Our server did her job well but didn't personalize our experience - she was likely pretty busy. It sounds like we complained all the way through our evening but no, even the wait it was the Pottery that was proactive - we were too busy gabbing to even notice. We just mentioned the temp on our meals and asked for a quick heat up. We will be back (as we have been for 18yrs now at Valentine's day weekend)!

As a frequent Guest to The Pottery this visit with a friend for her Birthday was very disappointing. Despite telling them when I made the reservation that it was a Birthday there was nothing on the table to celebrate a birthday as there has been in the past.
We then had a very long, long wait for any food to be brought to the table and our main meal was only just warm when it arrived. We did not complain to our server Michelle because as always her service was excellent and she was doing her utmost to keep all the other tables and guests happy and satisfied throughout the evening. We heard the table next to us complaining. Michelle did an amazing job considering the number of guests she was having to look after.
We also didn't want to have to wait again for our food to be heated up as it was getting late. If this was my first visit I would likely not be returning.

Not a large selection on the menu to choose from. I had the mushroom polenta and it was extremely salty... to the point of being inedible. There were 5 others in our party ordering various items off the menu. Opinions on individual meals of other 5 ranged from poor to mediocre. Hostess was friendly and accommodating, however, our server was anything but........She was rarely seen and appeared less than enthusiastic to be our server when she did appear at our table.

We had a reservation for 7 and showed up at 7 to hear they needed 10 minutes. After 25 minutes we were finally seated. We did not get a visit from the manager to apologize. The appetizers were delivered after we suggested we receive some complimentary apps. The dinner was delicious for 3 of us but coincidentally one order was extremely salty, and the same risotto as I had which was fine. They did replace that after a few minutes but still no visit from the manager. The server did do a good job. The atmosphere was overall quite cosy and pleasant.

Worst meal I've ever had. Steak way overcooked, halibut salted heavily with TABLE SALT, wine was old and gone bad, service was poor and manager barely compensated us for a horrible experience. Also we came at 530pm and we had our 9 month old son with us and they stuck us in a back corner in a separate part of the restaurant so, and I quote "we would be out of the way". We visited BMR from Toronto and we will never ever come back to that restaurant and also make sure all of our friends never make the mistake of going there either.

Christmas dinner was very tasty and great service. The only con for us and what appeared to be many tables around us was the chilly temperature of the room. We were seated in the lower level which we found out was near an exit. We had our coats on most of the evening unfortunately. Next time I would try to reserve a table in the upper level.

We were disappointed in the quality of the food. My wife's steak was over done, sent back, and returned but not much better. Wine was good though. It may have been an off night however the server led us to believe that there were enough chefs available to make the experience great.

We don’t eat bacon and they kept doing the order with bacon . The food came an hour late . It’s was not a good experience at all ( the food was good though but my experience was not great ) I think will go back and give them another chance ( the staff was really nice and apologized for the kitchen mistakes) we did not pay for the brunch they got it taken care of .

Dinner at the Pottery restaurant was under par. Very limited dinner menu. Portions were a good size but there was not a lot of flavour to the meals. The Caesar Salad was drenched in dressing that was quite tasteless. My husband ordered the Prime Rib dinner which was a good size but the meat was tough and lacked flavor. Nice restaurant in terms of décor and staff was friendly but we wouldn't return.
