3rd time here, food quality and service had definitely degraded. The food seemed to be cooked in advance and be refilled when needed. The person managed the omelette booth seemed not happy the whole time. Our server gave us the bill as soon as we came back with the first plate of food. Very disappointed.

I had the stake medium rare, it was medium rare but with a taste of burn. The outside was near black.
My son had lobster mac&cheese, he was disappointed, there was hardly any cheese.
My daughter her chicken was dry and only ok. My wife had the fish and she was happy with it.
I felt it was food at a diner's level.

Worst evening ever. Food was slow and cold. There is only 1 Valentine's per year and L2 ruined it for me. I have this one day where I try and wow my partner, the rest of the evening was as cold as the food thanks for nothing L2 Grill. It was really bad this year. And we are regulars at the restaurant.

We arrived early and had to wait, then people arriving after us were seated first. Because we had a vegan eater in our group, the time to receive our meals was delayed versus other tables. The food was delicious, but timing was terrible. Our entire sit-down stay lasted 3 hours...I would recommend to this restaurant that they hire more Chefs to help with special occasions such as Christmas Day...very un-organized!

We have been here once before for Christmas Day supper. It was excellent that time. This time the food, while it tasted good, was cold. The service was a bit slow but we did find out that they were short a few waiters/waitresses so you can overlook that once it's explained. We were just having a leisurely supper so it was ok, but I did hear people complaining.

We came here to celebrate a 40th birthday. It was extremely loud because there was a christmas party booked there the same night. Wish I knew this when I was making the reservation. Food was tasty but came out cold. I am a stickler for my food being hot to enjoy it totally. Especially when paying a little more for a nice meal.

We hadn’t been to the restaurant in the Fantasy Land Hotel for a number of years so I was eager to return as it was a spot we went every November for dinner after shopping at the mall.

The restaurant has undergone a renovation since our last visit and the menu now favours a more casual style with fewer selections. The wine list is sparse but reasonably priced.

Our meals were served missing our starch request that was brought out after I could get our servers attention, about 5 minutes. In that time our meals had cooled down considerably. Steaks were mediocre but cooked to the desired done ness.

There was a group seated in the rear of the restaurant that was quite loud and their conversation was the most prominent throughout the restaurant.

With all the choices in the mall I would try somewhere else before we returned. Not the experience I expected.

We had an amazing anniversary meal! Fresh buns with butter, martinis, cheese plate, the Fantasy Platter (steak, chicken, shrimp, lobster tails, potatoes and veggies) , chocolates, and cake! The food was delicious, cooked perfectly and the atmosphere was fancy and romantic. Our server made sure we were taken care of and kept us laughing! Would recommend to anyone!

There was no gluten free options for the meat on the buffet which was a shock because L2 is normally very good for that. It’s disappointing so we’ll see if we’ll be back next time.

I expected a more upscale Dining experience but it was disappointingly underwhelming for the price. The food taste and quality were lacking. I read about the chef on the website and was excited. The chefs specialty chicken was dry and bland. There was decent prime rib but it was on the fatty side and there were no potatoes to go with it. If you serve crab legs, serve with butter! The fruit was fresh and was nice to have chocolate fountain.

Sadly, L2 has gone down a step or two. This event (10yr anniversary) we found management + menu changed. We were hoping for our usual great experience. No so this time. There are some bugs to work out.

What stood out the most was the lack of training that our server displayed. He seemed unfamiliar with the menu & lacked wine training. He did not present the bottle to us to inspect and verify it was the correct one we ordered- but I could see the label as he clutched it close to his chest. After opening the bottle he seemed at a loss as what to do. He poured me a taste and seemed confused as to protocol as he asked me if he should leave the bottle for us to pour. I said that was fine, so we poured our own glasses for the entire meal. He left the table with the cork -- and then returned a few minutes later with the cork and put it back in the bottle (it was a red Malbec) -- I told him not to do that with red, as the wine has to breathe. He thought it would be the wine "fresh". (oh dear)

Why is it that this new management or senior staff isn't helping out the junior/new staff? That act alone of bringing back the cork and pushing it back into the neck raises some sanitary questions. Where was that cork in those lost minutes?

We are not squeamish or germ-a-phobes - but that wine faux pas and some inedible greens (under-cooked collard) means a fail for the new L2. The steak was good but the lamb contained 2 small rib portions (ie: overpriced). The menu said lamb was to be served with Pomegranate BBQ sauce, cheddar biscuit, and broccoli bacon grape slaw. The sauce was a Mexican hot sauce, tasted like the jarred Frank's Red Hot. The substituted greens were not up to par. Who's to blame? Waiter, cook or management?

The staff did redeem themselves a little with a complimentary dessert for us to share. The $150 price for two, with tax + tip (2 entrees + one of the lower priced wines) = might be a very long while before we're back. I'll keep an eye on the reviews.

I was taking my son for his 5th birthday. We with my parent and very pregnant sister waited so long for everything. 20min for drinks, 35mins for appetizers, another 30+ for meals. By the time we got out of there it was almost 9 o'clock. We had to ask for a bill three times and we expressed our complete discomfort was sitting so long WAITING. We were the only table there when we got there at six and two other tables were cleared out before we left. We did not order anything out of the norm. So there really was no excuse for how long it took.

I go for lunch every two to three weeks. It is always good, especially the soups and the salad bar. Our server was good with picking up the dirty dishes and refilling coffee cups.
The only negative was that on my reservation through ‘open table’ I requested a table and definitely didn’t want a booth. Obviously someone did not read it properly as they had us in a booth. A booth does not work with six people when it is a buffet! The server and hostess quickly remedied the seating and we were seated at a table.
