Will never go here again!! The owner / manager Jim was extremely rude. While eating, he came around to interrupt our dinner and talk to us, and blatantly insulted my wife. I have NEVER experienced anything like this before at a restaurant. He seemed intoxicated and smelled strongly of rum. I feel bad for the servers who have to work here (they did do a terrific job). Will be avoiding this place like the plague. The food was mediocre at best.
What a great experience that was! We were in a dome outside. It was cozy and private. Service was excellent, food was delicious. Loved it!!
Everything was awesome! Great spin on some bar favourites!
It was our first time eating there. Sam was our server and she was so friendly and helpful. Loved the unique take on the food. So tasty! Will definitely return once lockdown number 3 is over
The outdoor domes are a great way to support local restaurants during this Pandemic. Would definitely go back.
Great food, and great service!
The staff and manager were excellent
Fantastic service. They were running approx 15 min behind, but didn’t rush us out. The waitress was friendly and attentive, and we got to eat outside in our own dome. Loved it!
The restaurant was locked and no one answered the phone. We were there for 7:30 when our reservation was at 8pm and only to find out they are closed. No sign indicating that there was possibly an immediate closure due to a Covid Case or emergency. This was disappointing because we drove over an 1 hour to this restaurant specifically for the dome experience. The restaurant requires a credit card to confirm your reservation and they specifically state no last minute changes or a possible charge will be added. Not only were they not able to open but they didn’t even have the courtesy to call me to let me know they are closed.
After following up with me 3-4 times about making sure that I still wanted my reservation, the restaurant failed to notify me by any means (email, phone, sign on the door) that they had been shut down and were no longer able to seat us. What a waste.
I had a reservation for my daughter's birthday, I called and I was told to book on line, I did it when i went there the doors were closed. Not even a phone call as to why. Waste my time.
We were beyond excited for our reservation that was booked to celebrate 2 birthdays in our family.
We drove all the way from Burlington because we are not comfortable with indoor dining and we knew it would be a bit chilly for a patio.
Upon arrival, the door was locked!
We were greeted by a cracked door and told 'we are closed'!
I explained we had a reservation and was bluntly told that they had been shut down without any kind of apology.
To say we are disappointed would be an understatement.
Cause & Effect, I hope you intend to make this up to your customers who were not even contacted to be told their reservation would not be accomodated.
Took my step father here for his birthday. We reserved a dome for 7pm on a Monday night. I knew it was only an hour reservation but for some reason I thought this would mean the servers and kitchen would be faster service. We arrived 30 minutes early (we wanted to make sure we weren’t late because we are from just outside of Hamilton). We called the restaurant and asked when to come in they said they would call us. 5 minutes to our reservation I called again and asked if we are still waiting on a phone call. They said they forgot and to come on in, they just had to clean our table. We weren’t brought to the dome until 10 minutes after our reservation started (7:10). Once we sat down we ordered drinks and our appetizer at the same time trying to be thoughtful of the time. The waitress was very welcoming and brought us really cool dry ice martinis. The appetizer was wonderful and we ordered our food when she brought out the drinks. The food came out at 7:50 (keep in mind we need to leave by 8 according to their dome policy). Right as the food was being set on the table the server asked if we needed anything else and then asked if we wanted to bring our meals inside so they could prepare for the next reservation. We said no, we believed we deserved to be there until at least 8 due to the fact that we were not sat until 7:10. We started our meals, everyone loved theirs. I payed $28 for a burnt steak (very well done) when I asked for medium rare. I wanted to say something to our serverbut with all the commotion of being asked to move and us asking to stay I didn’t want to make a bigger deal. At 7:57 we were asked to move into the dining room to finish our meal. We celebrated his 50th with yummy funnel fries but not the environment we were hoping for. I could have been more understanding had all the other domes followed the 1 hour policy. However the dome right next to ours had 4 partying girls that stayed until 8:30pm in their dome. We paid $260 and I will not be back.
it was packed way over Covid restrictions, I booked a reservation and we weren’t seated until 40 minutes after, food came not how we ordered it and took forever, we were there for over two and a half hours total, our waitress barley checked on us and we had to call her over multiple times. I’ve been to cause and effect multiple times and it’s biggest support but this was a huge let down
Service was not good, prices were very high. Took 20 minutes for a waitress to come take our drink order and it felt rushed because of the time limit on the dome
Great food and experience. I took my goddaughter and the atmosphere was nice. The service was impeccable and I will definitely be back again. I recommend the salmon!!
Outdoor patio with the igloos was awesome! Excellent service and food!
Lovely place! Friendly staff, Angie was a great host. Food was really nice, no complaints and would definitely return. Very covid clean.
Unfortunately the 1 hour dining limit was not enough in the outdoor dome, because the service was on the slower side. By the time we had ordered and received our food we only had a few minutes to eat. We ended up having to be moved inside to another table, so I’m glad the restaurant was able to accommodate us that way but it was really annoying.
We dined at cause and effect for the first time and overall we had a great experience and will definitely be coming back. The food did take a little longer to come out, and they have 1 hour time limits that you're allowed to eat because they are busy with the next booking. But the manager came over to our table during the wait and offered a snack for our little ones which was greatly appreciated and made up for the wait so we didn't mind at all. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. The outdoor dining experience was really neat in the dome tents, I liked the lights as an added touch. We can't wait to come back.
Toasty warm inside the dome a the food was great! Wonderful customer service and the price was very reasonable. Visiting again soon!
Food is always good. Great portions. Friendly staff. Prices are reasonable one of my favourite places to go
The staff were nice and friendly. Food was good.
The restaurant was a bit chilly from the doors being opened due to the servers having to go outside. Not much you can do about that I guess.
It was good to get out finally and support local business, while having a good meal and the server was awesome.
Music was a bit loud, but...I’m old, so it’s subjective.
Thanks to all.
Great service awesome food my favourite place great prices
Upon arrival. The hostess did not have our reservation. I showed her my confirmation . There was a table anyways. Walk in right to bar where a bunch of “regulars” sat slumped over the bar. Staring at us as we walked in. Booth was tight for 5 of us. There were open tables available with more seating. It was not a very family friendly environment and my kids are teens. Food was ok. Would not go again. Live music was way too loud. But singer was good. But way too loud for 6 pm. Over all it’s not a place I’d go again or recommend to anyone.
Food was soooooo good!
But the best was that it was actually hot when delivered to our table.
Something you don’t get anymore.
Too cold, turn up the heat!!!! Very loud table/group near us which was distracting. Wouldn’t mind had it been late night but this was at 6pm
Amazing food and amazing service will deff be back soon!
Younger crowd, service was terrible (we had dinner and went across the street for more drinks and dessert because the service was so bad). Dinner took forever (there was hardly anyone there and it was cover cooked and cold). If you are concerned about COVID guidelines or precautions then this isn’t the place to visit either.
Really enjoyed the whole atmosphere, service was great, wasn’t too loud as we reserved around 4 pm. Drinks and Food were great!
Great food especially the nachos
Service was awesome!!! Food was amazing! Nachos were the best I’ve ever had:)
Great patio, friendly staff. Food was excellent. Would recommend.
Waited ten minutes after our first drinks to have refills, literally empty glasses. Waited an hour for oysters and the waitress said the chef had so many orders for oysters it took an hour? Hello you don’t cook oysters you just shuck them? Service was terrible and it’s obviously just a place for young people who don’t follow any issues with the mask rules. Won’t bother again!
Not the best service and there was garbage all over the patio - it wasn’t even busy at the time
They need more servers and more social distancing!
Food was the best part.
Server was friendly and polite. The manager was helpful and funny, I would definitely recommend trying for yourself.
It was ok. The menu was very limited, and seemed overpriced. I expected more, but it was t bad. The service was good.
