Were seated by 6:50 and able to order fairly quickly. Took some time for the apps to arrive but the mains did not show until 8:50. A full two hours after arriving! We were very close to leaving before the mains showed. Food was average at best. This was our anniversary and supposed to be a nice way to celebrate. Very disappointed.

Our waitress was excellent but the food was highly mediocre. Two people had ordered beef tenderloin. Was tasteless. Needed more of something to add some taste. One ordered rack of lam which was way too salty. One ordered chicken gnocchi which was by far the best dish on our table. Calamari was good as well. But three of our main entrees left a lot to be desired.

The service at Magnum and Steins was phenomenal. We felt like we were friends with the two waitresses by the time our dining experience was over. The food was exceptional. The only complaint that I would have is that the QV draft beer that I ordered was not very cold.

Maybe they were understaffed, but there was quite a wait for service, despite having a reservation. We were there for almost 3 hours and it was just me and my partner. Delicious food, but a long wait.

So disappointed in our first experience at this well established and supposedly fine dining venue. The service was poor with infrequent visits and no clear indication who server really was . Dirty dishes left on the table for too long and long waits for water refills. We also waited for 2 hours for our entree ( with no explanation)and when it finally arrived, for some it was cold and undercooked and for others over cooked and dry . I could hardly find the vegetables on my plate which included one very limp asparagus sprig which I couldn’t even cut. Overall, nothing was worth the high price we paid. Don’t think we would ever return or recommend.

Terrible service. When I arrived I ordered a drink and it took about 15 minutes to get it.

When we arrived we told them we had a show at 7:30. We ordered food at 6:05 but the food did not arrive at our table until 7:10.

They seemed very disorganized and un- attentive .

I have eaten there before are it has been good. This was a big disappointment.

It was hands down one of our favourite dining experiences. The server was absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. We were celebrating the upcoming arrival of our first child and she helped make the night even more memorable. The food was delicious and great proportion sizes. Would absolutely give this 5 stars and would recommend to anyone looking for a great place to eat.

The menu at Magnum and Steins is small so it is disappointing when the item you would like to order is not available. I wanted salmon but it was sold out. Our reservation was at 7:30 so you would think that there would be better planning for the food. I also heard another patron been told that they were out of mashed potato.

Last experience was not like the two previous ones. Some of the food was cold. Asked for dressing and gravy for potatoes .. gravy was thick and cold. Late receiving some items like water or dessert .. friendly staff and the cod fish is wonderful. I guess our dishes were not timed properly ... overall we like it there.. will return and hopefully a better experience ...
