We were seated, promptly our server was polite and efficient. The food came out quickly and the flavour, temperature and portion size were excellent. We’ll keep coming back again and again.

Our food was lovely and the server was excellent. On a cold winter night the room was not warm. I wore my winer coat over my sholuders most of the evening

Although the manager had requested that our party of 9 be set up by the door we requested to be moved into the dining area which was better. It was too cold by the door. Our waitress moved us without question. Our time was 4:30. All of our bills had to be redone because we were charged for after 5 prices. My Beef Bourgeois. was a bit chewy also. We had been there for brunch on Sat. so a bit disappointing as I had suggested the location after the theatre.

Quiche/salad, sandwich/salad-delicious with great dressing on salad. Fried chicken/waffle/frites-interesting flavors, but waffle very tough, hard to cut, dry.
Service excellent.

Food was good. Ambience lovely. However they told us we had to leave after an hour and a half. We didn't even finish our dessert and they took the plate away.

While the food was delicious (went there for Fried Chicken Week), and the waitress was really friendly and knowledgeable, the food delivery was quite slow for a lunch time meal. We were there was almost 2 hours which is too long for a work day lunch. Would definitely go back when I’m not in a hurry. Really enjoyed the food and ambience.

Came for chicken fest (chicken and waffles). The chicken was delicious! However, the waffles were too dense. And the time it took for the food to arrive was at least an hour.

This has been my favourite restaurant for years, but we went the other night and the food was just terrible. I ordered the 100 Mile Poulet and received basically, boiled chicken breasts with some lumpy mashed potatoes. The dish was missing the listed puree and cheese. Very strange. I heard others complaining as well. I love good food but this was not good. I hope they can make some improvements in the kitchen because we've always loved everything about Promenade.

We had New Year's eve dinner with a set menu. We were happy with most of the meal but our entree was disappointing. My husband had the Prime Rib which was tough and chewy. I had the chicken which as dry.
The service and view was great.

Unfortunately the building heater failed, they did move us from the windows.
Three onion soups was cold and sent back to reheat.
Overall experience was not well. We froze the whole time.

There was no heat in the Restaurant, but was not asked if we want to change seats to were it was warmer.
There was something wrong with the heater in the bigger dinning area. Two people kept there coats on while eating.
My feet were freezing.
Made for an uncomfortable atmosphere and everyone wanted to leave sooner than expected.

We made a reservation for four of us for Christmas dinner - especially for our little 95-year-old French lady. It was very special because we were early enough in the evening at the beginning of the week that we had the whole dining area to ourselves. So that made it unique, but such a blessing since my husband is deaf and noise can be very disturbing. Our waitress was super - joining us in laughter on occasion. It was a very special evening; thank you very much!

The food was excellent but....we booked a 12:00 noon time for a Sunday Brunch with friends, and we were quite surprised that they stopped serving their breakfast menu at noon. We had to order off the lunch menu, which was very good, but several people in our group were disappointed that they couldn't get eggs.
