March 17, 2018 was the first time I had attended this restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu items. The food and service was excellent. I will definitely be back.
Way beyond our expectations. Could bot have been better. The people and the food were awesome.
Food is absolutely good! We had great time for our 17 th anniversary!
This was our very first visit , despite living in Surrey for many years. Overall, a really wonderful dinner with good service, although no one offered to refill my empty cocktail or asked if I might like a glass of wine once the meal arrived. Classic dishes, nicely presented and decent portions. Enjoyed everything we ordered, including dessert. The room we were in was small and with four table it seems a bit tight, but manageable. Parking was very limited and could be quite challenging, depending on the time of day. Would definitely return.
I have been coming here for 40 ( ok I was young when my father first took me there then , now age 54) years and it just gets better . Wonderful ambience , service and amazing food ! Done in a classic elegant style . Same family owns it still , different generation now of course . Will keep coming back . My favourites are the pepper steak , Caesar salad and of course the old Surrey house coffee - done at you table too !
An excellent restaurant with a great menu. My friends were impressed with the food, service, attention and ambience. There was no rush to push you out the door. We spent a leisurely time over dinner and were able to have excellent entertainment as the servers prepared some of the dishes at our table. All 4 of us had the special which was excellent. Great food a a reasonable cost.
I love a restaurant that never disappoints and this is it. If you like to linger over amazing food, candlelight, catering servers and fine wine - it doesn’t get much better.
Off the beaten track and tucked away is this culinary delight. Be sure to make reservations.
Food and service always top notch. It was friends first visit to the Old Surrey and they loved it.
Our waiter was a bit too chatty but everything else was spot on!
Very nice ambience. Waiters have all been quiet attentive. Very friendly staff. Our food was well prepared and presented. Have come here twice now and will definitely come again. Good wine list but the price per glass is somewhat over priced in my opinion. Hard liquor prices are reasonable.
We always enjoy our evenings at The Old Surrey. Wonderful service, delicious food and the special four course menus they put together are a great value. Highly recommended!
Plan to take family and friends back.
one of the best we have been to in years.
Not your standard chain operations.
Always enjoy this place. Love how they prepare some food and beverage in front of you
The candlelight and roses were very romantic. The service was great. Food was great. Really enjoyed the quiet intimate atmosphere. We will be back and have recomended to friends.
The Old Surrey Restaurant has been a favourite for years. The quality of the food and the outstanding service has not wavered. I know that a meal there will be outstanding each and every time.
Love this place always fun times vey romantic in the library
Slightly disappointed based on reviews. Should have been better but limited Valentine menu. Will try again. Service needs improvement.
Amazing place! Definitely a hidden treasure of Surrey. Great hosts, great food, great atmosphere. Would definitely come again.
Food and service is great. The table side service is a special treat. Dinning room is nicely decorated but is still comfortable.
Heard it was good and it certainly was. The steak melted in your mouth, Cesar salad delicious it is made in front of you and good portion. Would definitely return.
Very good first experience at old surrey restaurant. The service was wonderful and the food was delicious. Caesar salad was by far the best I’ve ever had. Would definitely go back!
Superb food and attentive staff
Every time we go we are not disappointed!
Great!! Love this restaurant!
Excellent atmosphere for a romantic night out. Food was superb and service very attentive.
We had the special beef appetizer. It was tender and very tasty.
I had the seafood platter. It had the best salmon I have ever tasted, shrimp, scallops and lobster were delicious. My husband had the rack of lamb. It was perfectly done. Good portions. Topped off with cherries jubilee done at the table. Perfect end off to a perfect dinner!!!
It is a very good restaurant that I have not tried it before. It’s very interesting and fun , when the server made ice cream and wine coffee in front of you. Thanks for the server (elder gentleman)-Good service, Fresh food and tasty. Price is fair for the four courses set dinner. I will try again and recommend my friend.
We went to the restaurant to celebrate two family birthdays and we had a lovely evening.
I particularly like the separate rooms in the old house. It allows for easy conversation and room to move about and visit with everyone.
The food was excellent as always and the service was perfect.
The Old Surrey always prepares and presents as delicious meal. The Caesar salad prepared at the table is delicious and massive.
Always an enjoyable evening. Service impeccable, Caesar salad made at the table, as well as dessert and specialty drinks...love the fire show! Very reasonably priced.
One of our favourite restaurants . Can't beat the combination of great food and service for the value
It was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I have ever had. Curtis our waiter was exceptional. I have never had shoo many delicious flavors on one plate before. I will definately come again.
Excelant food service and ambience will recomend to all my friends.
First time there and it's definitely not my last!! Food was amazing, the staff was friendly and attentive. Parking is hard to find but let's be honest, a place this good why wouldn't it be busy!!
I have enjoyed eating out at Old Surrey Restaurant for many years. The food never disappoints and the staff is always professional and helpful/
Tableside service, outstanding menu, and great value. Old Surrey never disappoints.
We asked for a quiet table..they appeared to only be seating in two of the five rooms, and our room had every table filled. The other room had twice as many tables and only half were filled. At the table next to ours were four loud people..the other two parties were parties of two and were not obnoxiously loud. Even the kid across he hall in the other room wasn't as noisy as the people at the table next to us. Other than that, the presentation was lovely. Good portions.
Our go to Restaurant in Surrey. This old house has been in the city for many years and for good reason. We can always count on excellence.
We moved to North Delta in 1975 one year after the Old Surrey opened and have been there constantly over the years for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions as a couple and with all our growing up family who still visit on their own. It is the premier restaurant in our area that can be compared to any premier restaurant in Vancouver with the benefit of no bridges to cross. Great food, service and ambience.
A Precious Gem in the Heart of Newton
My husband and I have passed this restaurant on numerous occasions, without ever having tried it. One thing to note, is that the parking is on the Enterprise side of the restaurant. We ended up doing a bit of a neighbourhood tour because we missed the parking lot the first time round, thinking it belonged to Enterprise.
Overall, we were very pleased with the quality and flavour of the dishes we ordered. We started with the sautéed shrimp, which was served deliciously hot and fragrant. This was followed by lamb for me and salmon for him. He was not that pleased with the amount of sweetness in the maple soy sauce, which he found reminiscent of eating a pancake vs. salmon, but I didn't try it, so I can't vouch for it myself. The plates arrived hot, the food was fresh and well presented. The rack of lamb was tender and plentiful. I enjoyed the potato croquets and the roasted beets, with the crunchy green beans.
We're trying to stay away from dessert, but the choices looked great - all veritably soaked in some sort of liqueur. It's been years since I've enjoyed a good cherries jubilee but I didn't try it. The thought of trying it will probably draw me back to this new old favourite sooner rather than later.
We didn't order wine, enjoying sparkling water instead. Due to having two attentive servers, our glasses did get filled with still water, but the server was very quick to bring a replacement bottle to fill our glasses up again. It's a nice old world touch when they brush up the crumbs between courses.
I found the old world charm and the delicious food well worth the higher than-Surrey-usual prices and would be happy to bring family and friends back again.
Great food. Especially liked the Caesar salad prepared right at our table, and the liquid nitrogen ice cream prepared right in front of us.
My wife and I were visiting Surrey from Ontario and decided to try this restaurant to celebrate her birthday. Boy are we glad that we did! Very nice atmosphere and excellent personal service. Spiro was very friendly and was genuinely interested in meeting us and sharing our life experiences. He even hand made our salads as well as carved and flamed our Chateaubriand. All of the food was amazing, and the personal service was the best touch. Fine dining at it's best!
