The Flying Dog reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Best Rib Eye Steak!

    Dined on 11/23/2012
    The flying dog is an exceptional restaurant, offering excellent service, interesting food, and the best rib eye steak I've ever had. The fantastic thing about the flying dog is the 50$ friday date night dinner. For a reasonable price, you get an appetizer, mains, and dessert. Although a bit loud, the exceptional service and fantastic food will have me coming back for more. They even gave us a sparkler after I requested they do something nice for our anniversary. This kind of care and service is what makes the flying dog stand out!

    This is my favorite place to go for any type of celebration. The presentation is great, the food is always very good. The service has been top notch. I would highly recomend this dining experience. The prices are reasonable when you consider the quantity and full flavours of the dishes. Steaks are cooked to perfection. I will be back.

    As usual, the food was fabulous. Only setback tonight was that the place was so packed that the food service was a bit slower than would have been expected. I still recommend it as a great place to go for awesome meal.

    Overall good experience. Had some issues with the 'pad thai'. It wasn't marked as spicy and it came with a cream sauce....more like a fetticini. Other than that food and service was excellent.

    We enjoy the Flying Dog as the food is always well presented and I have rarely disapointed with my meal. The accept coupons which make our meal very affordable especailly for the quality . Everything tastes very fresh and the chef makes an effort to make the plate look very appealing. I wish they would redo the seating in some of the larger booths as they can be uncomfortable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice sit down meal.

    We used to go dancing at the Dog almost every weekend when we were younger and then when we got older and stopped the bar scene, we forgot about it as a restaurant. So glad I remembered this great appetizer we used to get there. Went back for dinner and have been going back every since. Great food, great ambiance and lovely servers. I recommend it to my friends all the time.

    Food was fabulous! Lots of great options to choose from. Service was very good, especially on a night that was so busy. Was a bit loud but understandable considering how crowded it was.

    We've enjoyed the 'Flying Dog' each time we have been there. Chef Dwyer provides a range of meal choices that is well balanced to satisfy any pallet (salads, soups, fish, seafood, pasta,or steak). The consistent food quality and presentation would rival any top restaurant in any major city - without the outrageous prices! The venue is larger and darker than most restaurants, yet is designed to create an atmosphere condusive to a romantic dinner for two, a dinner with friends,a game of billiards,a dance after dinner to a DJ (Thursdays are Salsa night) or to just have a social drink. Food portions are just right (half and full dish sizes are available). Service is timely and courteous. We've never been disappointed.

    I wanted to surprise my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and took him to The Flying Dog. We had been to the adjoining Revolution Nightclub before and wanted to check out the restaurant. What a GREAT idea(if I do say so myself)! We had 8:00 PM reservations and were greeted warmly and seated quickly. The service was impecable and our waitress was very helpful and polite. We received complimentary bread and the cocktails were great! It was quite low-key and was very intimate for my boyfriend and I :) The Flying Dog has a very warm atmosphere! Now to mention the food. We had the calamari appetizer and both ordered the 8 oz. ribeye steak with potatoes and vegetables. Best steak I have ever had! Such a great experience, I highly recommend!

    Some of the best food we've had in years. Excellent presentation of food as well. Service was prompt and thorough. The young lady from Sudbury did her job with excellence. For food and service this was an A+ experience. We will go again!

    Overall the experience was very good. The waitress seemed very busy and a little distracted but we overlooked it as the food was tasty and we didn't wait too long for it. I enjoyed the fact that we could keep the booth for the evening and didn't get kicked out after we ate. We stayed and danced until after midnight.

    Eventhough the restaurant was almost empty, we were seated in a boot with such old seats that we sank until the table was up to the middle of the chest. We felt like we needed booster seats to reach the table comfortably. We had to ask the server to change to a different table. The problem was that there was a division between that table and the server so I had to stand up to call the server or she would come every 20 minutes! The food was good though. Well prepared, well presented and well timed.
