We went for brunch at 11:30 am, only a half hour after service started.
The food was cold, very cold.
We were served coffee first then didn't see the server for over an hour. We would have liked more coffee and I had to go looking for someone to get some.
For this price I expected more... hot food and service.

brought in a group of 11 people for brunch in the private room
celebrating 3 staff who have been with our company for 10 years + - this is our 3rd year doing this with your facility.
This year was terribly disappointing.
Brunch was terrible and the service was very weak.

Feedback is for you to improve the experience for
others as we will not be back. We will find a new location for our annual breakfast club.

My family really enjoyed our Christmas Day Table d'Hote meal. Entree options were appreciated rather than just the traditional turkey. The other three members of my family loved their entrees. The only quibble I had was that my turkey was not very warm. Our server was fantastic. Overall, a lovely experience.

This was the third Christmas Day brunch we had been to and the first time time we were disappointed.

The food was good quality but the choices were odd. No omelette station, no salad bar, no shellfish ( understandable at your price range maybe) and the eggs Benedict looked dry. No potatoes served with the main entrees (though the carrot and turnip mash is my favourite vegetable choice), and those served on the shepherds pie weren't thick enough to taste. I am English but I didn't expect to see such a pedestrian dish on Christmas Day.

For me the dessert bar is usually always the star of the show on Christmas Day, but this year the desserts did not even look appealing - more like something a non baker would put out. No pies, no gateaux, even the mixed fruit was just dumped into a bowl.

Your serving staff came through for you though - they were outstanding as always!

While the restaurant was a pleasant place to eat the roast beef in the buffet was not replenished. Customers waiting for the roast beef were offered steak after a considerable period where no beef was available.

We received a gift card for Christmas last year and decided to take out the family for Sunday Brunch. The food was terrible for $27.00 per person. The pork sausages were terrible and after one bite I wanted to through up. It went down hill from there. The bacon was ????? The pudding in the glass jar was okay but that was it. I was embarrassed for our daughter who picked this place to get a gift card from. 7 adults and 1 child were not satisfied. Maybe the menu food would have been better.

Loved the atmosphere inside. Great selection of food on the menu and very diverse for various dietary restrictions. I liked the fact that the food was authentic. My niece ordered a great vegetarian dish called Lentil Shepherd's pie which which was hearty and I shared the fish and chips adding an extra piece of fish. Everything was great except the coleslaw had too much mustard which overpowered the taste. Great experience and will go again.

Got there and had to seat ourselves in the lounge even though we had a reservation for the dining room which was empty.
Then waited a good 20 min before we got menus. Another 20 minutes to get half a drink order in. 15 minutes to get some water a beer. Finally 10 minutes after we got drink she came to take our order.
Put our orders in, nothing complicated. No changes or additions. Bison ravioli, burger, steak, salmon and risotto balls for appy.
Waited 40 minutes for 3 itty bitty balls. Waited another 40 minutes for 3 of the 4 meals. Wasn’t even the waitress who brought plates. Busboy asks 4th person if they ordered or?.... person confirms that yes they had ordered and yes they were hungry. Manager comes and apologizes waitress forgot to enter order!! Would be 5 minutes! Finally 20 minutes later last meal arrives after everyone is finished. 1 person ordered dessert (spice cake) and 1 ordered a second plate of fries when missing meal arrives. Took another 30 minutes to get that food. Fries arrived, dessert cake but wasn’t the dessert that was ordered. Bill promptly dropped off with dessert.
At no point was there drink refills. And an apology only offered when dessert mistake was mentioned. No discounts given no nothing. Requested manager who never arrived. Best part there was a total of 4 tables between lounge and dining room combined.
Food when it finally came was good. Not great and definetly not good enough to cancel out the horrible service.

Valentine’s dinner was a complete disappointment. The special meal was described as prawns with spinach and roasted peppers—the prawns came out on a bed of beets and onions. My wife dislikes both, so we traded and she had my over cooked steak instead.

We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Day dinner. We had a special guest from out of town and we did not want to spend precious visiting time preparing a Christmas dinner so eating out was the solution. It was beautiful and so relaxing as well as worry free. Food was creative and fabulous. Presentation was lovely. Service was excellent but not intrusive. The price was relatively inexpensive compared to other venues.Never disappointed at Creations.

Very quiet night in this restaurant, waiter Rey was awesome. He was attentive and a great sense of humour. We enjoyed the buffet! Salads were very fresh, a creamy pumpkin soup warranted seconds, scalloped potatoes yummy..........the fresh made berry crumble was delicious as were the small cakes. Worth a visit. Buffet price for seniors $25.95 very reasonable for the 4 courses.

I have been coming here for years for special occasions. Have always previously enjoyed it. The service and ambiance hasn’t changed but the quality of food has. Nothing was fresh. Almost all the food was hard or dry (including desert). The lunch station has now been converted to crock pots and it was the saddest desert selection I have ever seen. I dont know if there were recent budget cuts but I will never come back here to eat again.
