Overall great experience! Food was far beyond delicious. My friend and I ordered 3 different appetizers and cleared everything off our plate. The server we had was very informative and very kind. But I have to say when we were initially greeted, the 2 hostess at the front were not friendly at all and gave us dirty looks. And what looked to be the manager (a male wearing dress shirt and dress pants) was very quick and snappy to tell us we only had 90 minutes. So the initial greeting at the restaurant was poor but everything else afterwards are amazing

The food was great but service could use work. Our server did not inform us of the 2 hour dining limit and/ or notify us when our time was coming up. We were still sitting on the patio ordering drinks and would have loved to continue when the manager came by and basically kicked us out. We agreed, but then he struggled to split our bill and had issues with his computer system which resulted in us waiting 30 minutes to be checked out (time which COULD have been spent ordering more drinks and enjoying ourselves) but we were not allowed. To make matters worse we walked by approximately an hour later and our table was still empty on the patio. Unsure why the manager would not want to make extra sales and would rather the table stay empty? Kind of ruined our experience.

Lee has always been one of my fave spots to eat. We were once again wowed by the amazing Singapore Slaw and fabulous ambience. I was a little peeved at the end of the evening when we had just received our last two dishes and they told us we had 20 minutes left because there was a reso at 9pm. I wish they would have told us this at the beginning and perhaps let us know that we may have ordered too much.
All in all I still love Lee, but be warned of 2 hour time limit!

I visited this restaurant multiple times. Always had amazing experiences. Even last year when they opened outdoor dinning for the summer. Always exceptional services on all levels. And I always recommended this place to everyone I know like it was my own business.
This time however, it was very different. We had reservation but still had to wait for almost half an hour in a tiny space by the entrance. Customer associates were not pleasant at all. We were nervous because the night before I received quite late call (8:57pm) to remind me that I only will have 2 hours to dine. We came for 8pm reservation waited for about half an hour and restaurant was supposedly getting closed at 10pm. So, you can imagine how we felt waiting there. A lot of confusion between stuff. Waiters and managers that were overseeing our table were just ok, but not as good as it used to be. I didn’t understand the jokes that waitress was cracking when I asked her to cancel transaction as I rethought the amount of tips. Customer service at Lee was always something that I was admiring. I had my best 20 yo birthday, family days, multiple dates with my partner, and numerous get together with friends there and it was just an unbelievable expérience every time. But this time it felt like any other outdoor patio. Lee vibe wasn’t there. A lot of favorite items were out of the manu, food was absolutely delicious but shareable portions was a lot smaller in size. I couldn’t get a drink that I came there for because equipment was broken. Dishes and utensils were very worn off and tables and cheap plastic separators were not as clean as I’d want them to be.
I understand that it’s different times, and it’s difficult for the business in current situation, and everything. But something changed, the vibe of this place disappeared. It used to my to go restaurant and I’d advise it to all my family, friends, colleagues, bosses etc. Now I wouldn’t feel comfortable if they’d have to have same experience as I did.

Had an amazing experience at Lee for a birthday dinner. Although time limit of 90 minutes to dine was mentioned, they did not rush us at all and our server was outstanding. Food was unique, delicious and also a pleasure to view and eat!

The atmosphere was very quaint even though it’s right in the road. The service was absolutely phenomenal in both level of care to the guests and knowledge of the menu. The food was also creative and ones definitely unique to Lee’s with flavour profiles that will leave you curious. If you’re in the area, we recommend you come by!

Incredible meal. Wonderful service. Delish Sangria. The winners of the night were the slaw, cheeseburger spring rolls, pad Thai and the slow cooked beef. Go with more people so you can order more things to share. Chef Lee was in the kitchen and had a special menu of items he was preparing. The wild blueberry dessert was amazing. Enjoy!

Food was flavorful and service spot on. Dined inside in back room which lacked atmosphere and was a bit sterile. Front room and patio are better.

Great food and service; the only odd part was after we finished eating and our table was cleared, our server never returned. We had to catch a different server to ask for the bill so we could close out.

The service was excellent- Ben and team (including the trainee) who covered while he was on break - outstanding!
With all the hype, I guess I was expecting more.
The featured lamb dish - hmmm had too much going on and seemed to be trying too hard.

It was all lovely!!! We ordered way to much food. Lol we wanted to try so much. Food was great. Some new dishes didn’t live as much. But over all u can’t complain about the food. My one complaint is the waitress told us we need to leave with in our two hour window. She kept mentioning it a couple times. No need for that we understood. So near the end of the meal we found it rushed and basically didn’t really have time to stay for coffee and desert. Cause we got another warning that we were nearing the end of our time frame. For spending that much money on a meal I would think allow ur customers to enjoy their time and meal at their pace. If there was nothing else to order I get it. But if ur still eating and haven’t even ordered desert please don’t rush us.
