Nineteen XIX Ratings and Reviews
Interior decor reminded me of Earls.
Table water served was room temperature, no ice provided.
2 out of the 3 crab cakes served as appetizer were burnt, and yet were still mushy inside. Maybe a previously frozen item?
Beef ternderloin spring roll appetizer was delicious, good crunch, tasted great.
Lobster ravioli had virtually no lobster flavour, totally lost in the spicy sauce. Shrimp served with this dish were good, a better match for the sauce.
Vegetarian option Gnocchi had a good overall flavour, but we're again quite mushy, perhaps a previously frozen item as well.
The room was quiet enough for conversation, and the staff were good enough to leave us to our date without many interruptions.
Overall though, not good enough for the price.
Overall tasty courses but service short comings will be the lasting impression. My stella came out flat (opt for bottles vs draught next time), the table bread was boring n came with cold, hard butter (strangely, they offered a different bread as we were finishing appies). No more panna cotta was disappointing but their signature warm butter cake was tasty. This was our 3rd time at xix and can't see us going again anytime soon
The first time I've been disappointed in this restaurant, I have been going for years. Not sure I'll return, feel somewhat ripped off.
They offered to shell the lobster, then did not give me all of the meat. I have worked in seafood for years and know exactly what I should have gotten.
They offered a free desert for their error.
Really nice dinner. Service was excellent! Chef very accommodating with some difficult food sensitivities I have. I found the noise level a little high and the space a little large but appreciated that they have managed to create more intimate corners for two. Great to have a nice option without going too far from home!
Took my significant other out for his birthday. Food was excellent if a bit pricey. It would have been nice to have been a little closer together. There was a bit too much distance between us, but its also nice to have space on the table and not be crowded. Overall very nice.
Very nice ambiance, quiet, classy. Clear view of the kitchen (interesting for those who admire such work). Wait staff friendly and professional. Food was delicious. I am a celiac and most entre s can be prepared without gluten.
We on the dinning room side but I note nearly all the bar patrons were eating as well. Good sign I say.
We will definitely be back.
The food was awesome! The staff were all really knowledgeable and friendly. It’s a nice atmosphere as well. The inly negative comment I have is just that some of the appetizers are really small for how much they cost, but otherwise it was a great experience!
The decor was my first impression and it was such a wonderful surprise. It’s very warm, inviting but posh. So tastefully done. Old world charm with modern touches. Our waiter was a delight. Very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a pleasure to be his guest. The chef came to our table to greet us and ask about our experience. I had no idea of what to expect. I had only heard the food was excellent. I felt very underdressed. But.. you could go either way. I will definitely be back for dining and the lounge looked like a great place for date night. Thank you to my food critic friend for telling me about this great spot. Did I mention the wine list.......omg.
The restaurant and food was amazing. I have been to XIX twice before and still happy to return.
We brought our friends there and they still are talking about the food, two days later.
My only comment is that our waiter reminded us that since we used a gift card on a portion of our bill that gratuity is only calculated on the remaining balance and that we should keep that in mind when selecting the gratuity option. This was a little pushy and unappreciated. We always tip a minimum of 10% if the service is horrible and then increase our percentage up to 20%. Our waiter would have gotten 20% had he not appeared so pushy to receive a tip.
Went there with high expectations from their menu and pictures but was very disappointed. The meals are very confusing and too much going on. For the price of the food I find the quality just not there. Went with friends tried 6 things from their menu and nothing was amazing. Mushroom soup was good. I will not be returning there a so many other places I would rather eat in the city. Also our server forgot our drink order twice. Just disappointed
We waited about 5 minutes to order our 1st drink and then that took 10 minutes to prepare. We had to send one drink back as it was terrible. The service improved a little after that although the food was very oily and salty. Not what you'd expect from a first class restaurant which I've loved in the past.
While I overall had s good experience here, there was one thing that knocked off a star for me. The "seasonal vegetables" they served with my salmon tasted like they'd been in a freezer for months. They didn't taste fresh and green as I'd expect for what they were charging for entrees. Other than that everything was quite good, it's a shame that one dull spot ended up impacting my overall enjoyment of the meal.
