Great place for lunch
Preston's is a wannabe Joey's/Cactus Club but isn't. The menu offers something for everyone and the Cobb salad I enjoyed with chicken was excellent. Perfectly acceptable for a business lunch or a catch up with your favourite friend, Preston's will not disappoint.

Great Grilled Calamari!
I ordered the steak sandwich - medium rare - it came medium well to well. It was tasty enough that I didn't send it back as I was someones guest and it is their favorite restaurant. My host had the grilled calamari and they brought him some extra due to a kitchen incident. He shared it with the rest of us at the table and it was excellent!

Great lunch spot
Easy to book for work lunches. Good food, good service. Had a toddler with us and it was fine.

Only reason the noise became
Only reason the noise became loud was because there was a private function going on and it got louder as the night progressed. The food was really good as we had 4 in our group and everyone shared tastings. The dohnut holes were a great dessert.
If you are going use the valet service. Just drive around the block to the Coast hotel $7 for valet is cheaper than running out to re-feed the meter.

Great place for business lunch
The restaurant looks small but there is more room in the back that you cannot see from outside. The ambience is nice and relaxing. If you plan to have a lunch meeting with 4 to 5 people, I would recommend a booth located in the back. It's quieter and gives more privacy. When I made a reservation for a lunch meeting, I did ask for a quiet table and that's where we were seated. The food tastes good. I had a butter chicken which I recommend was well flavoured and excellent, plus a Nanaimo Bar for dessert. It's not too sweet like typical Nanaimo Bar and presentation was quite artistic. The price for this type of restaurant, I found quite reasonable.

Traveling from Ottawa to Vancouver we found Prestons via their website while scouting out potential restaurants to visit. We're really glad we found them and if they were in Ottawa we would be regulars. Fantastic food, fast friendly service and the ambiance and decor is wonderful. Highly recommend!

Good menu, nice presentation
This was a comfortable, middle of the road restaurant. Food good, nicely presented and they were quite happy to make changes to the vegetable/starch offered in order to cater to our tastes. Well priced.

Above and Beyond
I made a reservation for a special occasion and put a special request, not really expecting much. These guys went above and beyond from what I expected! They made it very special. Food and vine was amazing as well! Thank you

Poor service, awesome food
We didn't even get a drink menu until we'd been sitting there for 15 minutes without even water. Then it was so loud and the hostess had such an underbite that The only words we heard when we asked what the draft beers were was "coors light" so we both got that, which was obviously tragic. I would still come back to this restaurant, however because I had the Vegan Bean Cake and it was the best vegan thing I'd ever had at a restaurant before. My boyfriend had the butter chicken and he said that was top delicious as well.
