We had a nice time in the meal was very good just the price was a little excessive especially the drinks and dessert
Great food and service. Background noise was a bit too loud and table seemed deeper than average making it hard to hear my date.
Great dining experience! Loved the Tuna twist appetizer. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Will definitely be going back again.
Had the black garlic scallops what a beautiful dish! So flavorful!!
Very nice atmosphere, service and food. Great wine list as well. Will come back.
Nice place, ok service. Food is good but nothing special. I went for lunch and I thought it was a rip off. I am a gourmet and truly don't care for big portions. But the size of lunch was absolutely laughable. The chicken leg was the size of a wing, near a spoon of coleslaw and 2 spoons of salad (which had too much of a sweet dressing that I wasn't even asked and I specifically asked twice about no sugar). For all the emptiness on my plate the cost was $22. Tap IPA $8. HST and tip added up to $40 for a lunch that left me pretty much as hungry as I started.
Really great service & food. I would recommend it to my friends as a perfect place for a date or a dbl date.
Interesting menu selections - excellent execution and highly enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Very good food, no complaints except the music was too loud. Why is it that restaurants used to play old geezer music from the 40s, skipped over 'my generation' ie rock and roll, and went right to contemporary music, which i despise?
Food was great, however, our table was near the entrance and it was busy with people coming and going, made conversation awkward.
Always an amazing experience. Or server Jen was out standing and the food is second to now. One of the best restaurants in the city.
We have always thoroughly enjoyed our dinners at Nineteen but this was our first brunch experience. My partner felt the chicken and waffles were okay - mostly because the chicken was drumsticks and wings - not a solid piece of chicken which could be cut through easily with the waffle. My eggs Benedict were okay - lacking taste but okay.
A little on the pricey side, but good for a special occasion as the service and ambiance are top notch.
We got there 5 mins earlier than my reservation but got seated right away, next to a window looking into the kitchen (pretty cool!). We proceeded to order, you're looking to spend around 100$ for two people, so I think this is a place for special occasions only.
Always a 5/5 for me
Horrible experience. Made a reservation, got seated, and waited 30 minutes without any service. It was lunch!! I left.
Have been here multiple times before, but will never go back. I was a solo diner this time, and it was clear that they didn’t value my business.
The waitress was horrible!!!! Was obviously annoyed with us multiple times for no good reason. Didn’t come to get our orders, collect dirty plates or bring the bill. We had to ask everytime. I love the food here, but will rethink the visit next time.
We brought friends to XIX who were visiting from Vancouver, who had never been to the restaurant before. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the food - they commented on how lucky we were to have such a great restaurant 'in the hood!'
Great service and amazing food quality & presentation!
Tuna twists are a must have!
Great experience and exceptional food. Always enjoy
Everything was fantastic except the starter bread. Tasted like Dempsters Whole Wheat Bread... Not even warmed up. In my humble opinion that is a bad way to start off a meal but again, everything else was fantastic. Except the linen...it was rough. So everything was fantastic except the starter bread and the linen. Well, our candle kept blowing out. So, everything was fantastic except the whole wheat starter bread, the rough linen, and the candle that kept blowing out. Oh, and the distracting smudge on the class separating the kitchen from the restaurant. Really loved the restaurant except for the non-warmed up Dempsters tasting whole wheat bread, the sand paper like linen, the weak candle flame, and the smudge on the glass that separates the brilliant chefs from the plebeian dinners.
Fantastic food and drink, as always. Definitely some of the best I’ve ever had. Good portion sizes. Phenomenal.
Great atmosphere overall. I enjoyed the food however the service on this occasion could have been better.
Ahi tuna appie is a must as well as the beef tataki.
Salmon entrée and scallop with pork belly were both unique and delicious!
This was our first visit to XIX and I am confident we will visit again. We both enjoyed seafood and it was very good. You do not get a lot of food but certainly enough. Would have preferred a booth but as we were only two people we were seated quite closely to another couple. Overall an enjoyable meal and environment.
1. Never received a call back about wanting to make a reservation (I left a voicemail).
2. We didn’t even make it to our table. The hostess had the menus and was going to seat us. She then, out-of-the-blue, told us no ball caps allowed in the dining room and offered no alternative. If she had given this information up front, it would’ve been much better and more professional. Even, a “My apologies for the misunderstanding, let’s see what I can have my manager do for you.” For example - a gift card for another evening when we are prepared for the specific dress code.
This dinner was for my boyfriend’s Birthday - a very special occasion which is why we made these specific plans. We didn’t even leave the front door, and had to leave and make new plans. Unfortunately, such a disappointment.
A good business will always try to make it right.
Wonderful service, food, and environment! Made for a spectacular valentine’s dinner date. We were incredibly impressed with the food and it’s presentation and taste!
We tried the specials, fish was good but pasta special (with lobster) nothing special. Beef carpaccio appetizer very good, lemon desert nice.
Our first visit to XIX Nineteeen did not disappoint. The food was amazing, the prices are up there, but for special occasions it is worth it!
Amazing food and service
we went here to celebrate my husbands birthday, the meal was fantastic and the atmosphere was great, when we said we were celebrating a birthday the staff added a sparkle to our dessert. Thank you
The food was excellent, the service however was terrible. Our waiter ignored us for an unspecified reason. The only reason we had any service is the other waiter stepped in and filled our water glasses. Another person (I think a manager) cleared out plates. Terrible service!!!
Mike, the server, was friendly and informative, as well as efficient. The food was great, the date night package was a great deal. The appetizers, mushroom soup and steak egg rolls were very delicious.
Always consistent and flavourful food. Waiter was very attentive
Impressed with food and service. We will recommend to both friends and family and return ourselves to enjoy again.
Highly recommend, nicely timed, greatly presented food at the proper temperature. Will be returning shortly!!!
We tried Nineteen for brunch after hearing nice things about it. We both ordered the Bao Eggs Benedict and we split a cinnamon bun. My partner ordered the roasted potatoes (these are made with duck fat so I could not eat them). The cinnamon bun was among the best tasting I have had - even better than Chartier which is saying something. The Bao Eggs Benedict had very stale Bao and the sauce was tasteless. The eggs were very good quality but overall the main dish was flavorless. My partner was looking forward to the confits potatoes but the server forgot to order them. She them put the order in and said they would be 3 minutes. They never came and when we asked for them to be taken off the bill she had forgotten about them. It wasn't busy and it's just kind of lame. I wouldn't go back.
Enjoyed our evening with friends great ambience and service. The food was good a bit pricey!
I took my daughter-in-law and my son to Nineteen to celebrate her birthday. The decor was lovely, the menu varied and interesting and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. All of our meals were delicious, from starters to dessert, and were cooked and seasoned to perfection. I would definitely go to Nineteen again and would highly recommend this restaurant. A wonderful dining experience.
