    We were there for our anniversary. The food was good to go with exceptional service. However, the decor in the place needs to be spruced up. It looks like a dinner right out of the 70's. If you're looking for a romantic spot, this is not it.

    Staff went out of their way to set up table for 12 people for my wifes birthday. However forgot to bring my wifes drinks when we ordered. A couple had ordered the feast for two and it was very cold, they sent out a new steak for both of them which were blue rare. When it came time to pay they tried to charge me for 11 drinks when we only ordered four. Everyone elses bill checked out though. Don't think ill be back.

    Out to have a special night out. L2 grill did not disappoint. atmosphere was good, service was excellent somewhat due to the fact we were 1 of 2 tables seated on a Wednesday night. The whole dinner experience was very good, with all of the little surprises along with our dinner. I had steak, my wife had the chicken dish. presentation was excellent and the quality of the food very good. tableside flambé crepe suzette for desert.

    We went on a Saturday night, so you would expect it to be busy, but there was hardly anyone there. The waiting staff were very good - attentive and pleasant, and right off the bat they brought us some complementary scallops, so they definitely try to treat the customer right. It has all of the elements of a really nice restaurant, but unfortunately they are not executing on the food. Ultimately, that's the whole reason for the restaurant so even with the good service I wouldn't be able to recommend them. I don't have enough characters left to go into very much detail, but basically I found the food plain, my fish was overcooked and my wife's chicken was something we could have made at home with not much effort. We expected more.

    L2 has one of the tastiest all you can eat brunch buffets we have found so far. From fresh omelets to order to sushi and salads and a varied dessert table. You will leave full and satisfied. We will definitely come back again soon.

    The food was very good, but the hot food was not hot or even warm. Service was excellent during our meal. Didn't realize there were so many booths which is always a bother with a brunch to move in and out. Felt a little rushed as apparently they had seatings at 9:30, 11:30 and 1:30. Our reservations were for 12:00 noon. We received a call two days before asking us to change our reservations to 11:30. We were unable to due to a prior commitment and the lady on the phone seemed quite disturbed that we couldn't. Nothing was said initially when the reservations were made and I did call days before leaving a message to confirm my reservations but my call was never returned.

    Didn't really care for the ambiance of this restaurant. The food was very good for some things, not very good for others. The pork belly was a disappointment. The sea bass was very good, but would of liked more of a sauce with it.

    We were blown away by the selection and quality of the food. It is reasonably priced for what is offered; my two children were free because they were under 5. There is something for everyone at L2. It is easily our favourite place to go for a brunch buffet.

    I went for Mother's Day Brunch. The food was pretty good for buffet but it was quite expensive at $42/person. I also ordered a sangria and it tasted like watered down juice. It wasn't a bad experience but definitely would pick something else next time.

    We decided to try L2 for a birthday dinner. The food was excellent and we enjoyed our waiter who was very helpful. This is the first restaurant we have found that offers a wine my husband likes by the glass. (gewürztraminer) He enjoys this wine, while I prefer a dryer wine. We are sure to revisit. Thanks for a great night!

    The restaurant it self looks to be a laid back atmosphere, very inviting. We were greeted with smiles almost immediately. We both decided on sitting in a booth thinking more private but it turns out that there wasn't very many seated for supper. we weren't there very long before hearing the group in the banquet room cheering and applauding this I felt was rather loud but bearable. service was great wine selection perfect, the staff went to extra lengths to give us a very nice evening. I would definitely recommend L2 if you are staying at the Mall or if you want to treat the special someone.

    I found L2 to be disappointing. I made a reservation for Valentines Day, Confirmed at the time of booking that the regular menu would be available. When I they called to confirm a few days before, again I confirmed that the regular menu would be available. We arrived, were seated, and I asked to see the menu and was informed that thy only had the set menu that evening. We left.

    My wife and I both ordered the Bacon Wrapped Tenderloin for our main course in the set meal. I found the meat to be of good quality but the chef's decision to wrap it with 3-4 pieces of bacon made sure that the beef tasted only of bacon flavour. Very disappointing. The amuse bouche, salad, and appetizer were terrific. The dessert was awful.

    We have been here a few times with friends and a few more with family. Most often, we book reservation by calling. The last time was thru the website for L2 and we had that window on on line reservation so I did. It took a few seconds and steps that a confirmation has been sent back. That was incredible. As we step into the door, we were greeted without delay and brought to our table which was just perfect for me and my wife and a couple of friends. Service was excellent and food was much too much. Although we love most of it, we really can not and should not indulge too much as it was against my planned diet, hahaha which too was supposed to be a new years resolution. The temptation of the good food took away that plan. Enjoyed it though.

    Our reservation was at 1:00 for Sunday Brunch. A member of our party is well-known to the staff. As we were sitting chatting away over our coffee, they were kind enough to remind us that the buffet was only available until 2:00. Greatly appreciated as we would have missed out on some of the delectable treats.

    This was the best brunch in the city. This time, there were fewer hot choices: omelets to order, pancakes, roasted fish with white sauce, chicken with spicier sauce. and lovely hip of beef. Cakes and pies once were too numerous to sample all, and exquisitely flavored with a European touch. Now there were no visible pies, some good cakes, and too many chocolate sticky things. Not bad at all -- but uninspired. The lox once the best I'd ever had. was neither thinly sliced nor tasty. High points remain: salad were uniformly very good. service is still fine, coffee is good, and until it ran out, so was the o.j. The breads remain perfect, pastries are, too. L2, I loved you. Climb back up, please. It was love, I swear..
