Service and atmosphere was excellent.

We enjoyed the Fondue but there was not much food with the Cheese fondue. I would like to have seen less bread, no crackers as they broke very easily. Maybe have a few shrimp or some other non cured meats on the plate along with the cured meats. What was there was very good. We ordered the shrimp but it was $9.00 each for 5 pieces. With 2 people sharing, 6 pieces would be better.

Thank you for the Happy Birthday chocolate on our dessert plate. That made it very special and our Server sang me happy birthday when she brought in the dessert plate. That made it very special

Just one comment the samples for dessert were great but the chocolate was very runny. It did not stay on the food. Nice arrangement for the dessert.

Hotel Eldorado great.

Open table site poor. We have discovered more than once that you don't know what tables are available so you only offer times before the restaurant is open. That is not appropriate for the diner and could very well ruin a lovely evening out. You will be great once you deal with that issue.

Our special birthday dinner celebration was very disappointing. We waited over an hour for our entrées; when they finally arrived, the meat was barely warm and some items were missing. Even the bread & butter were stale. We sent everything back to the kitchen, and eventually got our meals. The service was very sporadic. We weren't charged for the entrées, but the evening was a dining disaster. Just a bad night for one of our favourite places, and hopefully a one-off.

The food was excellent. The service was ok, I think our server had too much on the go. We had to ask to order a drink and to get water refilled and to get a dessert menu.
We had a table of four people beside us that were extremely LOUD. Kinda disappointing, thought they would have been better in The lounge.

The ambiance was great! Our waiter tried his best to accommodate us and seat us by the window to see the beautiful view. The food was comme ci comme ça depending on what you ordered. Steak and ravioli was on point, but margarita pizza and fish and chips were .. meh. Overall, great place and friendly staff.

Was very disappointed in the quality of food from El Dorado. We have been here in the past and the food is always pricey but generally was good. When you order a $25 lamb burger you expect a real lamb patty not a frozen patty that is over cooked and doesn’t even taste like lamb. If I wasn’t with clients I would have sent it back as it was not good at all.

If you are going to lower the quality of the food then you should lower the prices.

Not sure if it was just Covid protocols but the dining menu specials were all meat options, no fish, shellfish, vegetarian options. The lamb was served rare not medium rare and not seasoned and pricy. Basil and mint across the streat serves the identical meal at half the price. Waiter was good. food not so much

Food was good, but we didn’t have salt or pepper or anything for toast at the table and had to wait after once our food got there to be given those things. Our waitress and service wasn’t good, she didn’t have any enthusiasm to her especially it being Valentine’s Day. There was no music and it seemed unromantic and gloomy. Every other time has been really nice.

Excellent surroundings and ambience. Great service and timeliness. A little expensive for the portions as with most fine dining. Salad was so fresh I swear they have a garden in the kitchen.

We were 2 seated quite close to a table to 4 who were very noisy. There were 3 tables to our left that were empty so why not seat the first seating in a more private way especially for a Valentine's experience. Very disappointed with the lack of intimacy created by the closeness to this noisy table quite close to us.

Food and service were good but the wine was outrageously expensive. The house wine was the only one which was reasonable and fortunately was not too bad. Not especially good but not too bad. In my opinion, priced in line with the quality. The other wines which were not outstanding in any way were $23 per 9 oz glass. Ridiculous. The setting was lovely.

Food very good, limited selection but excellent. Service amazing and friendly. Could be more observant of other tables as diners next to us were introducing themselves to each other and not wearing masks - so were not from same bubble.
