Restaurant was very beautiful both outside and in, and service was just the same. Food came quickly, and the server was quite attentive also. The food was delicious, seriously some of the best pasta I have ever had. Can't wait to come back when I'm in Kingston again!

We selected this restaurant because of its location. We found the food and beverages to be a little bit on the expensive side for what you got. The service was good. There are a lot of hard surfaces so once it started to fill up it got very loud. The bathrooms are on a lower level - not sure how those with accessibility/mobility concerns would manage.

It was theatre night so the restaurant was hopping. Even with such a large crowd we were welcomed warmly, seated promptly and made to feel relaxed and at home. The food never disappoints at Megalos and I tried the Lobster Ravioli for the first time and will definitely get it again. My husband loves the stir fry with noodles and it's his favourite to order when we go to Megalos. For anyone who hasn't tried Megalos it's well worth it!

We enjoyed our dinner celebrating our son's birthday! He chose the restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. We had been to Megalos several years ago and we were impressed with the improved changes to the menu and atmosphere. Gluten free choices and friendly service. Parking in the multi-level garage behind the restaurant was affordable and convenient!

This restaurant is highly recommended by my husband, myself, and another couple who dined with us. Megalos has cosy seating. It is a restaurant with a lovely interior, terrific menu selection, and truly attentive service. Tonight, the restaurant was catering to a full crowd, including many going to a performance, next door, at The Grand Theatre. Service consistently outstanding! Megalos is ideal for all special dinner outings, and especially for 'special occasions'!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Kingston. I have serious dietary restrictions but know that I will have a depth of selection that is not seen at most restaurants and I know that the food will taste amazing every time. Alexa greets every guest with warmth and a smile and it feels like she is a family friend. I can literally say I have never had a bad meal or a bad experience at Megalos in the 5 years I have been eating there.

Good selection on table d’hote menu. Salad and soup were great. Chicken and steak were great. Dessert was disappointing. Wine by the glass selection too limited. Window seat was lovely but the maitre’d stood at his post like a statue staring in our direction most of the time. Overall good experience that was very close to being great.

If you're looking for a comfortable and casual meal with fam or friends, Megalos will do. Nothing fancy, nothing to write home about - but fine comfort food. An interesting mix of gentrified brick and beam with a 1970's Love Boat feel from the furniture and finishings ...

We were 6 on Saturday prior to see the show at the Grand (also an excellent venue) and all of us had a great meal. Funny part was I was sitting at the "head" of the table and the waitress took the orders ...all except mine and walked away. When I called her and told her she missed my order she was embarrassed but handled herself very well, was quick to make a joke and we all had a good laugh. Always a great restaurant with great staff.

My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary on New Years Eve with dinner at Megalos. I found this gem online while perusing through Kingston restaurants. We prefer to dine in restaurants that are not part of a chain and this was a perfect choice for us. The New Years Eve menu was fantastic with a great choice of appetizers, main course, dessert and wine pairings which were perfect!

Excellent New Year's Eve dinner. Highly recommend Megalos Restaurant for a Special Occasion, 'without exception'. We reserved ahead a table for us with another couple for December 31st. Our friends loved their meals and raved about the selections specially offered that evening in the special Table d'Hôte with Wine Pairings throughout the evening. The impeccable service was of a high-end, very attentive restaurant. Thank you for the very special evening, Megalos.

I had a wonderful time at Megalos. I had a burger that was tasty, seasoned well, ample bacon and cheese. The fries were crisp and flavourful. It was so wonderfully quiet. My friend and I were able to have a very pleasant conversation. The music level was perfect, not too loud. The service was courteous but not intrusive . The wine was wonderful. I heartily recommend this restaurant.

We went for Sunday brunch. Service was very attentive with multiple coffee refills without having to ask. Food was very good. I had the Florentine Eggs Benedict. Nicely cooked eggs, tasty hollandaise and not overly saucy so that flavour of eggs and spinach came through. I substituted fruit for potatoes and it was a little uninspiring, but certainly okay. My companion said the potatoes were excellent. Definitely recommend as a brunch option.
