    The food was good but we were a bit confused by the verbal menu which was quite extensive, but were given a printed menu which did not come close to the verbal menu. I like the verbal menu from our server, but was too long and hard to take in all the options given for appetizers and mains to make our decision.

    Overall, food was decent but pricey. Service was ok, but we felt Like drinks were pushed and we waited for over an hour for our food. There was a staff member there at the bar and was overly Loud and obnoxious . She was helping behind the bar and kept sliding other staff in front of customers. She randomly took things off our table, and was so unprofessional in her manners. We were excited to try Magnum and Steins and chose it for our anniversary dinner. We won’t be back

    The finish on the tables were blemished badly. The place had a funky smell when we entered. Likely from the carpets. Otherwise service was great. Good food. Pasta may have been a bit overpriced.

    The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. Good variety of food selections. The salad was very tasty and the chicken dish was amazing. The portions were also large. A very enjoyable experience indeed. The decor could use a little brightening up....too dark, too much black. white table clothes on the tables may make a difference.

    We booked our reservation for 8:30 but as good as we showed up that we were listed as a no-show as it was showing in their system for 8. We were seated at the deck after the host hd to ask the manager if it was ok to seat us. There were multiple tables that were not cleared and it took a very long time to get our drinks.

    I had to ask the waiter to put on a mask. He said he was not advised and didn’t seem to like it. He walked away from the table and went to serve others in the room. It was quite some time before he came back to take our drink order. No specials were provided. Waiter didn’t know the menu well. Didn’t even know what beer the restaurant sold. I am not sure why you ask this question about the occasion because I identified it was an anniversary. No acknowledgement of that. Having said that the steaks were done to perfection and everyone seemed to love the food.

    The restaurant really needs a face-lift! Food was slow to come but server was attentive. My husband had the steak and it was delicious! I had the pasta special a day it was not good- pasta was overcooked and very little flavor. It just tasted like butter!

    From start to finish our dining experience was top notch. The service was on point, the atmosphere exactly what we were looking for and the food was fantastic. From the bread with specialty butter to the baked Brie appetizer to the halibut special, everything hit the mark. But the HALIBUT! Do yourself and your tastebuds a favour and get it in ya! Mouth watering!!

    Ate outside and felt that we were forgotten (we were the only people outside). 1.25 hours to get food, offered a water refill that never came. We hade a seafood board that was over priced for what it consisted of. Calamari on the seafood board was tasteless (worst I have had to date). Seafood soup was good. We used to be regulars in the past but for the last 2 years we tried to go back and are regularly disappointed. Sad because we used to really enjoy Magnum and Steins.

    We had a very wonderful evening at Magnum and Steins. The meals were fabulous. There were 4 of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our night. The service was excellent. Blair, our server, was the best. Lovely ambiance. Some of the entrees were a little pricey but you could go lower fare as pub food also offered. Prices are quite comparable to most high end restaurants. This has not been our first lovely experience at this restaurant and won’t be out last. Highly recommend

    The people at M&S were so earnest and eager to please that’s it’s hard to write anything negative, but my halibut was a bit overdone. Otherwise, the lamb chops were excellent and the artisanal green salad SUPERB. The cheesecake dessert was good. It’s certainly better than most restaurants we’ve sampled in St. John’s.

    5/8 meals had to be sent back. 3 burgers were ice cold and 2 steaks over done. LONG wait for drinks and food. Wasn’t really the servers fault as he was the only one on the floor and was obviously ran off his feet. We got there in time for happy hour appetizers but weren’t served in time.

    We had a reservation for 4 people to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We really didn’t enjoy the evening after paying over $400 tab. It took around 20 minutes after we were seated to take our drinks order and another 20 minutes to comeback and take our food order. After waiting about 30 minutes we got our appetizers. Then it took 49 minutes to get our main meals we were ready to leave. I find this totally unacceptable from a restaurant that it suppose to be fine dining. At the prices of drinks and food my expectation was that the service and food was going to be outstanding, my recommendation is to whom ever reads this reviewed is if you a client, don’t bother there are better places around if your are management make sure you are present and see how your restaurant is managed, I will give you the example of our waitress, she was really nice and knowledgeable but she give us the specials so fast that my head was spinning and I still didn’t know really what were they. Thank you

    Way too salty. Very expensive for portion size. Not the cleanest.

    Magnum and SteinsResponded on August 15, 2022Hi leal. Thank you for your feedback. We went back through your order and saw that your ordered cod tongues. Our cod tongues are served with pork scrunchions which are naturally salty and is traditionally served with the dish. When ordering cod tongues in the future we suggest ordering without the pork scrunchions. We do have concerns about your issue with our cleanliness and would appreciate it you could email us at magnumandsteins@gmail.co m so that we can discuss the issue further. Thank you.

    Went for apps and drinks during Happy Hour. Our waiter was sweet and attentive but service was slow. Kitchen order took too long and we waited on second drinks for longer than usual. It wasn’t even busy when we got there. Wings, duck confit nachos and potato skins were great. Would have ordered more during Happy Hour but no time due to service.

    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).
