Hi, this is our second visit to the Steakhouse. I felt our service was not great and we seemed to wait for a long time waiting even for the bread. I realize you are busy. Also the steak for us was very fat and some of it was chewy.
Everything else was great food, including the bread, Caesar salad and cheese cake.
It may be a while before we go back, however, did enjoy the 2 for $99 on Wednesday.

Excellent food and service, but would have liked to have the lake view. Not sure if it’s a first come first served, or can we book that ahead of time?

Everything about this restaurant is perfection! The food and drinks are amazing. Beautiful decor. Service is great. Our waiter was very professional with excellent service. The views are beautiful. The only negative thing is that it’s far from the SW side of town where we live. It’s totally worth the taxi fee and drive though. If you’re looking for a posh restaurant to celebrate a special occasion or a date night. This is the place to go!!! Be sure to dress nice ❤️

Everything was excellent as usual except 3 things. #1 I requested a window seat and I know they don’t guarantee one but if they’re seating us and 2 tables are basically ready and they seat us to the table farther from the window that shows me they don’t really care about accommodating repeat customers. #2 they called me 4 times to confirm my appointment including 5 minutes before our appointment time. When I questioned the girl at the front about why they called me when we weren’t even late. She didn’t even know who or why we got that last call. #3 my daughter found a hair in her steak. For those kind of prices you would think the kitchen staff would have to wear this white hats you see in fancy restaurants.

Just a night out from the kids. Really enjoy the modern steakhouse vibe. Definitely recommend the smoked ribeye for two. Brian took care of us and it was very pleasant.

We have been here many times before and they continue to excel and provide amazing food and service. Staff is always tentative but not over bearing and give you the perfect amount of time before returning to table. Keep up the great work

Cutlery was placed at wrong person, meals were placed at wrong person (both at different times) and a non-drinker who asked for a virgin Caesar received an alcoholic one. This, in itself is a pretty serious issue. We were still charged for this mocktail ($9!!!!) with really no apology. Disappointing to say the least. Aside from the very poor service, it is a beautiful place and the food was amazing (and very very rich). This was a $600 meh experience with subpar service. Won’t be rushing back or recommending it.

The fish dishes we had were very tasty. Next time we will try some of the beef which looked interesting.
Frank Sinatra crooning in the background didn’t do much for me.
It is pricey but we knew that going in.
I have a gift card which I wanted to use just for the meal and put the tip on my credit card. The waiter seemed to be hurried by that point and didn’t seem to understand what I wanted, which was mildly irritating. Anyway, the meal and tip got taken off the gift card.

The ambience is very nice, we were not at a window but had a lake view, very nice. Best once the sun goes down the lighting in the restaurant is so nice. The service was great and the food done exactly as we asked. The only thing is it was a little salty but still very delicious.

The experience was GREAT! Our server Brian was top notch. With my wife having dietary restrictions such as Gluten, Berries and Nuts. The kitchen was very accommodating.

The steak selection was great. We had the Wednesday special that cam with two sides. We also added the Black Truffle stuffed baked potato. A must have!

I would definitely recommend Chairman’s Steakhouse to friends.

Didn’t even make it to our table, host staff were rude and unaccommodating. If this place doesn’t replace or train their hosts they might run out of customers.

This was our second time at Chairman’s the last time was a birthday in July. The food was very good, the only disappointment was the lack of full body whites, I was told by a manager that this was a steakhouse and therefore Red is popular. We have been to steakhouses in many locations in Canada and the US there is always robust whites on the menu. I felt his answer was condescending and showed a lack of knowledge within the industry. Our waiter was on his fourth shift at the restaurant so was relatively new and did a great job. We are dining at Chairman’s again on oct 16 and I’m thinking I may bring my own wine:)

Got many recommended here, so i decided to come for me and my husband 3 years anniversary. Not very happy with the experience. Atmosphere was nice, got lake view at very corner which was perfect. Appetizers was good. Main food wasnt that great, everything was OVERLY SALTY. I know there was a big party there and the kitchen was behind but we waited too long for the food and lost our appetite. Server wasnt checking to ensure that we are enjoying our meal or not (maybe once) even when we were paying the bill, he didnt bother to ask how was the food and everything. We still tipped him 25% even though he didnt do much, and other server was packing up food for us not our server. I always like to have a dessert after meals but kept looking around for server and waited to long for the food made me wanna leave. Spent $600 (included tip) for bad experience and very disappointed because we didnt feel like we were welcomed. Definitely not come back or recommend to family or friends.
