    We were attended to by a lovely lady (Asian) who did an amazing job in attending to us. There was only one chef in the house so food was relieve late but it was tasty. We sat outdoor and the noise was not bad at all.

    Everything was great except for the large number of people smoking just outside the gates weed (some right there with the bouncers) I don't care if you do or don't toke but keep at distance as per city bylaws. I came home smelling worse than a skunk..... I will try the place again maybe earlier in the evening and/or during the week since I don't think things will change but the service and the food was excellent and this is why I want to give this place another go

    We ordered appetizers but everything came at the same time. My husband ordered a ceasar salad but received a garden. It was fixed but it wasn't that busy. A shout out to the kitchen staff, it was so hot outside, it must have been unbearable in the kitchen, but our food was extremely good.

    One the limited wine menu, they were out of one white wine on a Friday night at 7pm. Of two desserts available one was not available, yet again on 7pm Friday, start of the weekend. And no coffee! Also out on the start of the weekend. There seems to be some management issues if this is the case.

    So our food took over one hour and we had only 5 in our party and still the cook mixed things up for one of our party. The server was fantastic and apologized several times about the wait . Knowing it took so long and we came 2 hours prior to our movie we just got done 20 min before the movie. Server was very upset for our wait. Manager was nice enough to not have us pay for our meal just drinks . Not too sure how fast i will return

    I went with my girlfriend for a two year anniversary, both of our meals were screwed up but we couldn’t get them fixed because our server in the hour and a half we were there probably came over three times to take her order to give us drinks and to give us the bill. He didn’t even come over to give us our food it was the cook. The one bathroom stall was out of order and water was leaking out of it into the middle of the bathroom and hallway. In the hour and a half that we were there we got one drink and I had to go up to the bar to ask for another water. Definitely not worth $120 bill and our entrées which were 30 and $40 apiece which were both wrong

    There for a girls night. Our server was very patient with me and my friends as we were too busy chatting to review the menus. I had the pear, brie, and grilled chicken sandwich (without the bun) which was very good. Desert was funnel fries! So delish! Large size, so recommend sharing with a friend or two!

    The waiter took forever also the food came out a bit cold like they forgot about what table it belonged to or just took too long to bring the food to us. And yeah drink we alright and the cheese was so cold on the nacho’s. Sad night for us.

    We ended up going to try out Cause and Effect as an early Mother’s Day dinner and was met with the surprise of below par service. Our waitress was sweet but unfortunately none of the staff were on the ball. Meals were served without cutlery, several reminders had to be provided for missing food/ beverage items and a sheer lack of attentiveness resulting in frustration, a table of dishes that needed to be cleared. This experience suggested that the staff may have been quite new; there were several instances where delivery of dishes and beverages had shaky hands resulting in either food being placed fallen off of the table or spilled drinks. Partway through our meal, we happened to be seated in an end unit booth where a waitress decided to dump patio cushions behind me; not an appropriate storage location. Im sure she was following protocol but it deteriorated the already poor dining experience. We had ordered the baby nachos to start which upon coming out were stone cold. I has ordered the hunter chicken which I enjoyed and was moist however the portion for the steak that my partner ordered was atrociously small, fit for a toddlers meal, and over cooked. We wanted to send the steak back but flagging down our waitress posed to be quite the challenge. Aside from the service and the mediocre food the music for 7 pm was much too loud to have a meaningful conversation with the person next to me let alone across the table. The one upside I’d say was their cocktails that are created and presented beautifully. Overall, I’m disappointed that this experience was subpar, and likely won’t be returning.

    Overall it was a good experience. But i was kinda disappointed at the size of the drinks. Two people ordered the same drink and they came in two different size glasses. One which was much bigger then the other. Also there was a couple things added to ppls bills that they order so it needed to be fixed.

    The food was pretty good, a little overpriced but overall tasty. Service was nice and the meal came fast. But the music was WAYY too loud. Don't go here expecting to be able to have a conversation. If loud edm is your thing you will probably like this place but its definitely too loud for your average customer.

    Food is way over priced and blan for what you get. Paid $40 for nachos that had $10 worth of topping and $30 worth of chip/potatoes. I was told “I’m sorry, you should have got chicken instead of beef”…I just don’t even understand this mentality and lack of people skills or understanding with the staff. We came all the way from TO to visit friends in town and we will not be going back.

    2nd time eating there and this time was a disappointment with the food. Ordered chicken wings as they were 1/2 price and they were room temp at best. Wings are not big. Over priced, even at 1/2 price.

    This was a reservation of 6 but one ended up not being able to make it - so it was 5 of us. Dinner was good; food was good; the only surprise was at the end when we received our bill the gratuity of 20% was added to the bill; when i spoke to our server - she indicated that because we had reserved for 6 this was automatically added - however, nowhere does it say either on their menu or website that this is done. I understand the premise - but there needs to be disclosure about this; to be honest, our server did deserve a tip, absolutley - but i would like to choose how much i give.

    Service was very slow, Cleaned our own spill as 2 employees walked past. Told them I spilt it. They didn't pick up napkins on the floor. Fries not actually fries. They came as waffle fries maybe they should add that on menu. Food salty. Salmon was straight out of a box hard no flavour. Curly fries came with hot spice for kids also should mention that on menu. Kids drinks should come in small cups not large adult cups with no lids. Will not be returning

    First time going here. It's was nothing special but was still a good atmosphere. Sitting at our table the roof was leaking onto a bench seat we were not using. Actually forgot to mention it to the staff, sorry about that. Food was good, noise level was nice and low, which was nice. Over by the bar it was louder but the overall space by the bar seemed congested. Might try out the patio in the summer but wasn't memorable enough to sit inside again. Overall 4 star place.

    Would’ve appreciated being told that the domes had been put away and that the menu is going through changes. Ended up leaving after our starter. Good food and drinks just more communication is needed.
