Diner Reviews
  • "Very attractive with good location and underground parking. Lots of food choices as well as different liquors, wines and beers. Would recommend. We enjoyed it as we were longing for summer and the drive with the scenic surroundings made it worth the trip."

  • "We had a reservation and actually visited the restaurant to choose our table. However, when we arrive our table was already taken and we received a table with a view of the doors to the kitchen. After an exchange with the manager we ended up with a very nice booth and a couple of drinks on the house (thank you). We started with a salad (chicken and kale) and the calamari (lime foam dip), both were very good. Our main was the Mediterranean pizza, nice pizza but totally overpowered by the amount of green olives they put on it. We couldn't eat it all and once we picked off all the olives the leftovers were not bad. Wished we had seen the olive on the ingredients list as we would have asked for no olives or picked a different pizza. Good food. "

  • "Started badly when ordered the beer jug special and were brought 3 dirty glasses with dishwater in the bottom of them. 3 of the menu items we thought would be good were not available. 2 of us ordered the seafood pasta bowl and what we received were 2 different dishes (one had shrimp, one did not, one had tomatoes, one did not, one had olives, one did not). On top of that, the pasta was way overcooked to the point of being mushy and was served with a moist piece of bread (Yuk). I ate the shrimp and told the waitress to take the rest back to the kitchen and tell them about being overcooked. She came back and said the chef apologized Nobody else complained at the restaurant of the 4 of us, but no one finished and all said it was not good."

  • "Arrived with a party of four and were greeted immediately by a friendly staff member. Shortly, our waiter arrived with water and a friendly smile. I liked the ambience of the restaurant and the very comfortable booth. The presentation of the different dishes was excellent and the chicken special was tasty and succulent. Our food was elegantly presented and very good as well as our service."

  • "My husband surprised me with dinner at Cabana for my bday. We had reservations & when we arrived we were quickly seated & perused the menu. After 10 minutes of no server I asked the hostess if she could send him to grab drink orders. She did and he came & abruptly offered to go over specials. I thought he meant drink specials & said "oh that's ok thanks". We placed drink orders & he started taking our food menus away. I said "oh we'd like to order food". He condescendingly said "I thought you didn't want food, you didn't want to know the specials". I clarified we did & he headed off to tend to the booths behind us, laugh with coworkers & we didn't see him or our drinks for 5...10...15 minutes. We left for the El restaurant - SO much better!"

  • "We enjoyed our evening, having a couple of drinks and sampling some of the appetizers. The server was wonderful, checking in with us but not rushing us at all, suggesting we have the dishes come out sporadically so they would all stay hot. The duck quesadillas were our favourite, with a tangy sauce and tender duck. We expected stronger mushroom flavours from the wild mushroom risotto fritters but they were nice and crispy. The place was buzzing with lots of groups, as it was easy with the big booths and long row format. Service is not exceptionally fast but if you want a relaxing night it's a fun place to go."

  • "We went to Cabana Grille to test the food and service so we could book them to cater our wedding. We were thoroughly impressed with the food and service and will definitely use them for our event!"

  • "Found the menu to be varied with a good selection of main courses all reasonably priced , the Buttered Chicken really hit the spot. Thought the appetizers were a little over priced. The wine selection was good and offered a wide range of reds and whites. Service was excellent, our server was very knowledgeable and friendly adding to the occasion. Over all a plesant dinning experience and will definetly return."

  • "Do away with the paprika in the garlic butter. If you are serving garlic butter with seafood - SERVE GARLIC BUTTER The butter served did not add to the meal."

  • "Every time we have eaten at Cabana Grille the food has always been full of flavour and taste. Their menu has a taste for all types of foodies. The restaurant can be noisy so not a good setting for a romantic or visiting with friends type of dining."

  • "Wine and Dine was too much for this place to cope with. Our personal service was very good but even with that a wait of over 30 min between courses was too long. We were kept appraised which was nice. Will try again on a quieter night."

  • "The atmosphere of the restaurant was good. Service was good. It's a good restaurant for people with food restrictions (gluten free, sodium, cholesterol). I was impressed with that. For the most part food was pretty good although the Prawn Pompodoro had too much sauce."
