As always, it was great! Frittata should come with something. A small salad maybe.

The service and the food were very good, but the ambiance needs improvement. There's not much competition, so I see why they wouldn't invest in upgrading, but it's way past a face-lift!

We were very disappointed with our special date. Food lacked presentation, kitchen was out of the entrees we wanted and service was dreadfully slow. Pork chop was drowned in so much salt it made my wife physically ill afterward. Sorry to write a poor review, but it is the second time we have been really disappointed here.

I've never been disappointed with Arms Reach. The chefs do a great job, especially with the fancier, more pricy dishes. The options are actually quite variable though they seem simple at first glance. The restaurant is cozy and I have always had awesome service. Polite, friendly, and professional. If there is one thing I'd recommend, it would be to spend a bit more time on the more casual dishes in terms of flavor. Salads don't have to be fancy but making sure the dressing isn't too much and the ingredients are sufficient, that makes a huge difference. All in all I'll return in the future and it's a great experience, thanks.

My fiancée and I recently dined here for the first time in a few years. Great service and spectacular food. Can’t wait to go back.

It was a sunny day in deep cove and so I’m so grateful we made a reservation- we were seated right away and thoroughly enjoyed the attentive friendly service and our beautiful eggs bennies (they have the best hollandaise!) I was shocked when we got our bill to see that brunch was half price!! - it was more than worth the regular price we were expecting to pay. Will be back soon!

Loved going to Arms reach. Service friendly and welcoming. Food great and price great.
But - I will not be back because there is only a very tiny amount of parking in Deep Cove and the Deep Cove business owners association has done nothing to improve it.
I came to Gallant Avenue as a child to have ice cream in the very same building that Arms Reach is in... and I do not see anything that has been done by the community of Deep Cove to welcome visitors by adding some parking, SOMEWHERE!
Need to get the district to offer some land or something...otherwise how can the businesses survive?

EXCELLENT smoked trout bennies!! (Plus they were priced 50% off, which was even better - although they are reasonably priced at the normal price.)

I had the Dine out menu - the salad was fabulous! The pasta though tasty for the first few bites was so heavy that I hardly got through 1/4 of it. Very disappointing. Dessert was good.

We often visit this restaurant and are always completely happy with the food and service.
The food is consistently good and we always feel very welcomed when we enter the door.
The wine is reasonable and they stock our favorite wine Blue Mountain.
