    We had a reservation yesterday evening and requested outdoor seating. The person who greeted us (who ultimately ended up serving us) simply pointed at the patio and said “that’s your table”; we were not shown to our table. We then sat at a plastic table without menus, placements, water, or cutlery for nearly 10 minutes before I asked another server outdoors if we could get some menus. This is unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber and price range. We were then given menus and our server asked for our drink orders. He (Toby) then arrived with one of our drinks as he had forgotten my order, which I reminded him. When I raised my dissatisfaction at how we were greeted, he responded with multiple excuses and a brief apology. The food (two app-type items from the bar menu) took over an hour to come, and service was scarce once the food was delivered. I again has to request the bills. Overall the food is nice but a very disappointing service experience given the restaurant’s price range and reputation.

    I booked the back patio and was very disappointed. The deck was shabby and very uncomfortable seating. No music playing, pigeons flying over us. We were forgotten by the staff, they were not engaging. I had to walk out to the bar and ask if we could order drinks, twice. No one came to our table to ask after 20 mins of being seated with not even water offered. We waited over an hour for our appetizers and waited two hours for our entrées. The food was moderately good. My halibut was over cooked (dry).

    Made reservation for friends from away. It was very embarrassing to have recommended this restaraunt. The service was atrocious. Food wait was 90 minutes from ordering. The food was obviously left under a heat lamp and forgotten yet it was still served. It was was extremely dried out. Part of order was missing. When offered a complimentary glass of wine 2 were brought and was charged for 1 of them. The only reason they ate their meals was they had waited so long and were very hungry.There was no good point to pick from this experience. These were not picky people and I understand there are staffing shortages but there was no excuse for the bad food. I will not be returning and will definitely never recommend this place.

    We had a great time. The food was good and the service was great. Our waiter was so fantastic. We sat on the front patio and he was efficient and funny. The front patio is also a fun place to be. Lots of stuff happening on the street that can be pretty entertaining.

    We fully understand the situation of being short staff these days, but the service was extremely slow, not much attention before and during dinner! Plus we were charge twice on our credit card! So I had to go back this morning to be get a credit on our credit card! (Very surprised we did not get some kind of credit for our next visit!) We love Magnum and Stein but let’s say we were not impressed yesterday August 4th. But we go back later this fall when it’s less busy. 👍

    The service terrible. We were not offered water, drink refills, not asked how the meal was or if we needed anything, my husband cleared the table because we were sitting with dirty plates in front of us for 1 1/2. No one checked on us for over 2 hours, we had to ask for cutlery and my husband had to go get our wine.

    My guests and I were very happy with the experience. We did note that the server was wonderful but didn’t seem to be around when we wanted something, so we ended up waiting and sometimes giving up on what we were going to ask. There were very few people in the restaurant, so we were not sure why that was the case. Despite that we were very happy with the food, the location, the ambiance, the table settings etc.

    Magnum and SteinsResponded 1 day agoHi Debbie. Thank you so much for your feedback. We have identified who served you and have taken measures to retrain him so that going forward, he knows what he needs to improve upon.

    It was my first time at Magnum and Steins and my wife and I had a great time. The food was amazing, our waiter, Oliver I believe his name was, was knowledgeable and energetic. My wife is Celiac and he was knowledgeable about the gluten free options and if he wasn’t sure he would ask the kitchen staff. Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely go back and would recommend to friends and family.

    Excellent service and delicious food. I did find a hair in my food but our server took care of this situation effectively and kindly. The back patio wasn’t very comfortable. I’m not very tall and my feet didn’t touch the floor when sitting and there was no foot rest. In order to comfortably reach the table to eat or drink I had to scootch myself to the edge of me seat and the bare board bench hurt my rear end.

    Good and ambiance very good, however the absolute star of the evening was our server (wish we had got his name- steel worker). He was dynamite, professional and so passionate about his description of the specials he made our mouths water. It has been a very long time since we were that “wow’d” by a server and he will most definitely be memorable!

    I have enjoyed all my visits to M&S, and this one was no exception. The halibut was like a pillow atop a portion of baby potatoes and the lobster infused parm sauce was rich and satisfying. The service was on point, there when we needed and not hovering when we didn't, and always suoer pleasant. Don't hesitate, make that reaervation and go!

    I made a reservation and asked to be seated upstairs but we were seated downstairs. I had deep fried cod fish. It was served to me uncooked and cold inside. The server gave me another dinner but then I didn’t want the fish as my appetite had decreased after biting into raw cold fish.

    Initially We were all very impressed. Great cocktails and delicious appetizers. Given that level of satisfaction were loooking forward to the meals (party of 7). All meals were very disappointing. The pasta was dried up like it had been left out all day. The seafood in it was good. The fish in the fish and chips was good. The fries weren’t the best and my son had to wait so long for ketchup they had gone cold. One had poutine and there was that much gravy it was like soup. It was also VERY salty. It couldn’t be eaten. They did remove the poutine from the bill which was great but still disappointing not to enjoy your meal. The service was slow. The meals arrived at very different times which was a bit awkward. I do have to say that the appetizers were awesome. We had one of each of the sharing boards and an extra calamari. IF I go back, it will only be for cocktails during happy hour and an appetizer or two. In hindsight we were wishing we had ordered more appetizers and skipped the meal.
