The food and service have been consistently excellent on my now five times eating at Diane’s over a year timeframe. We love the fish tacos and the fish cakes and the chips and guacamole and the margaritas.

We've been to Dianne's several times over the past few years. This was the first time we were disappointed, and it was all about the food. Our appetizers (house salad and guacamole and chips) were fine. My wife had fish tacos and thought they tasted a bit flat (no cilantro). I had halibut and shrimp, with fries. The shrimp we're good, but the halibut portion was small and a bit dry. The coating was not crispy. The fries were limp. Fish cakes at the next table looked spectacular, so maybe we just made the wrong choices.

We had appetizers and drinks, and felt very comfortable just enjoying out time there.

We selected Dianne's for a date night meal and I must say that I couldn't have been more happy. We ordered calamari rings and taquitoes for apps and they were so delicious and beautifully cooked. For Mains we had 2 of Dianne's burgers and they were so well cooked and the portions were huge. I must acknowledge Katie, our server for the evening. She was such a darling and so sweet.

I had never been to Dianne's before this time as I had the impression that it only had fish and chips, boy was I wrong! Start with the guacamole, a classic but they spice it up. The Baja fish tacos were amazing, tuna poke bowl was light but flavourful. The atmosphere was neat, felt like we were by the ocean. Would definitely go back!!

A most pleasing discovery. Picked on a whim for a special occasion - couldn’t have picked any better. Had a very friendly atmosphere in which to enjoy tasty cocktails and appetizer. Followed by a delicious main that we shared. Had a hard time picking from so many choices we wanted. Recommend the charcuterie app - perfect! Going back...!

Two of the three diners are not fish or seafood lovers however we found something on the menu and thoroughly enjoyed it (Poblano-Chickpea Tacos & Invierno Salad with Chicken). My husband had fish & fries and claims that it is the best fish he has ever had.
The lighting and ambiance of the restaurant was very nice.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will visit it again when I am in Kingston.

We ate dinner on a Sunday night and were told that couple of dinner choices and appetizers were not available as run out of the ingredients and they were waiting for delivery which I guess that comes early week. The least they could do was offer us discount or free appetizer to make up for this. They were about to bring out our main dinner and one of the side dishes was not available as that the ingredients were not available. They should have told us that when we placed our order. Rest of the food was good and our waitress busted her butt to meet our needs. I would think the resultant needs to make sure they have the ingredients to make the dishes and appetizer on their menu.
