    Great atmosphere, nice to have live jazz for your Sunday brunch. Better to go earlier, seems to get busy.

    Music and atmosphere are nice - we have enjoyed it, thank you. The service this time was unprofessional… We asked for additional spoon and our waitress brought spoons and put it directly on the table … not even on a napkin… We have ordered “Brussels sprouts with bacon” salad and it was incredibly over salted- we have mentioned it to our waitress, but she just said “sorry about that”…. ( no change, no suggestion to choose different dish, fully charged for that salad …- that was weird ) We wanted to order desert (fried banana with ice cream), but the kitchen was out of bananas at that time and we were told “the delivery is coming”, but nothing came … We had overall a great time, but these moments left a bit of aftertaste:( Alvin’s is amazing place, we always enjoyed visiting. Thanks

    We all had a great time. My only critique would be the lovely lady playing piano and singing was too loud. As friends we found ourselves yelling at each other because her playing was just too loud. Her music was beautiful just too loud.

    The service and food were great. The lady bringing our food to the table brought me the wrong appetizer and dessert, and mixed up our entree’s, in that our steaks were cooked differently and went to the wrong person. I’m not sure if the Negroni was made properly because I’ve never had one before, but if it was then I’m not a Negroni person. The Louisiana Brass was very good. Loved the music. Both the happy hour pianist and the feature, evening jazz band. Very disappointed that I paid $5.55 for underground parking when it could have been complimentary simply because instructions weren’t provided advance. In the parkade, there’s no mention of the special vehicle checkin in the restaurant. I paid what the Indigo parking instructions said to pay in the parkade. When I asked the maître d, he claimed that he “didn’t know what Indigo was up to and that I’d have to take it up with them.”

    Cover charge is significant at $10 per person - it would be nice if it was less I’d like to see a standard 15% tip as one of the options rather than starting at 20% Excellent food Music a bit loud for visiting Service was great

    Slow service. Appetizers came out at 7:30, the mains came out at 8:30. Over an hr in between courses. Food was ok. Not mindblowing but not horrible either. Dessert carrot cake was way too sweet. The pear galette with ice cream was better. Tenderloin a bit tough.

    It was a great night out. Ambiance, food, music and company made the night a great experience. The server was super busy, which had an impact on how often she came and checked in on us. She was very pleasant and responsive when we asked for something. We will be back!

    The food was delicious. The atmosphere was great. The entertainment was amazing. But our server we had wrecked the experience. She didn’t know the menu; said an old fashion was scotch. And didn’t come around often enough to see if we needed anything. Had to go to the bar to get an other drink. She didn’t make the experience as enjoyable as it could have been.

    The food was great, but the service was slow and unenthusiastic - to say the least. It was very busy, but the service was slow even accounting for this. We will go back but maybe not on their Thursday night date night special. The date night special is a great deal, but we would not order it (too much food for us), so a less hectic dining room would be preferred.

    Went for Welly Wednesday. Husband had a smoked Bourbon& Beef Wellington . I had lobster and shrimp linguine. Food was good, pasta was salty. The wine we ordered wasn’t available but manager substituted a very nice red instead. Server was new to the restaurant but enthusiastic. Has to be the busiest bartender I have seen but he did a great job and kept smiling. So impressed that the manager was seen helping out on a busy night. Shows team work and why they stay successful

    Our first seating was in front of the band which we found to be too loud. They didn't seem happy to offer us an alternative table and the restaurant was busy, but not full. Service started efficiently, but then petered out - long wait for coffee and food was sub-par. The mushrooms in omelet were too chewy for my liking; the omelet was not fluffy, my friends bacon was non-edible (asked for crispy) and her eggs were overcooked (granted they didn't charge for her meal). Maybe we got a bad batch. The hash browns were good.

    The ambience was nice, that's what they are going for. My husband enjoyed his burger. My orange and beet salad was drowned in dressing, I didn't finish it. Thank goodness I had prawns with the salad, which were good. I left hungry with a large bill for what we had, way overpriced. Not sure we'd go back, to be honest.

    My wife and I had a fantastic time here. It was our 3 year anniversary from when we first started officially dating. The music was great, and the banana foster is definitely worth getting. The service was a little slow but that was alright, we just got to spend some more time together.

    We went on Tuesday so was slow. It was a snowy night. We arrived early at 5 because it was convenient for us as we were running some errands in the south. We live NW so it is far for us to go. Service was lagging. Sat many times with no drink, even water. There We’re only maybe 4-5 tables and Plenty of staff around. When we did wave down our waitress (many times) she was always pleasant. Food was really good. Chicken and rib dishes. Beautiful room, music didn’t start until almost 7:30, which was a drag since we had been there already for 2.5 hrs. We weren’t in a hurry but left after first set. Had to flag down waitress again to Get bill and our drinks were empty! All in all we enjoyed! Wish it wasn’t so Far from us. Thanks B.

    Arrived at 7:50pm for an 8:00 pm reservation, no reservation in their system, I had e-mail confirmation from Open Table on my phone ( I also confirmed our attendance the day before ). Luckily they had a table (and a very good one) and we were seated straight away. Music was fabulous (Barry Shaw), ambiance excellent and the food was very well cooked and presented. Downside was we ordered at 8:20, got appies in 15 mins, entrée arrived about 1.5 hours later (was not just our table). Servers were good and comped us the music cover charge due to the delay. Definitely will go back despite the hiccups and hopefully the kitchen problems are fixed. No idea what the issue was with the booking system
