    It was too cold to sit on the patio as no heaters were operating. Unfortunately there were a number of flies in the restaurant. I’ve been several times previously with an excellent experience so I put this one down as just one of those times that it wasn’t. I’ll definitely be back.

    Service was terrible. Oysters arrived way before drinks. We barely saw our waitress except to take our order and pay. Oysters were very underwhelming and disappointing with tiny size for $52 a dozen. Food was tasty however portion sizes were tiny and not good value.

    Had lipstick on wine glass which was corrected however its the second time that happened to me coming there. We didn't receive our appetizer that we ordered prior to main course, received it after main course was served after we mentioned it to our server. Food was good, however service wasn't great. I asked one serve for pepper and was completely ignored. I won't be back.

    Staff and atmosphere was excellent. Friendly, accommodating to our group. The food was just underwhelming. The French fries were the best part. I feel like the menu could do with a revamp. Husband fish and chips looked good.

    Service was great. Portions are small which is good for me but not someone who eats a lot. Some flies were bothering us during our meal but it’s to be expected with the windows/door opened. Overall a good experience.

    It was a quiet but beautiful night at Cove in Bronte. We love this restaurant. We all had a cocktail followed by meals that included Steak & Fries, Fish & Chips, Tuna Poke Bowl and Shrimp Roll. We all enjoyed some fries as well. Service was friendly and efficient. We will absolutely be back to our favourite place in Bronte.

    The restaurant is nicely decorated: light and breezy fitting it’s location near the lake. We found the service to be friendly and attentive. The dishes we ordered wasn’t bad either. Worth a try!

    My meal came with a corn salad on the side. When making my salad the chef clearly did not drain the can of corn properly prior placing it on my plate. There was so much water on my plate that my entire meal was soggy the waitress was good about but I was hungry and already taken a few bites.

    We were not impressed with how rigid the chef was in compensating the mashed potatoes with veggies ending up in going with just salad instead.

    Excellent evening. !! Stephanie, our server, was wonderful! Perfect weather.. great drinks , good food - I had the tuna poke bowl and it was absolutely fabulous!!( though the catfish was disappointing in that for the $ the portion size was very small and the corn salsa was very plain . It needed another side to balance and compliment the fish) The birthday cake was a lovely surprise! We’ll be back!

    The apps and entrees are horrible. Wouldn’t recommend eating here at all. The cocktails were okay but in all honest the only thing that’s good about this spot is the view. Even the waiting staff gave the vibe that they knew it was all so mediocre. Could be a really special place if there was more energy and enjoyable food.

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Cove Restaurant. It was easy to book a table and we were seated as expected for a Monday evening. The server was very friendly and courteous. He allowed us to take our time and checked in. The open air dining was wonderful and the view of the marina added to the ambiance. Love the retractable ceiling. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. I will definitely return.

    We were on our way home from Niagara… dealing with traffic Ugh! It was the perfect spot to stop have a couple apps people watch and then we’ll unfortunately hit the road but food was delicious and want to note that the fried calamari were the perfect colour and texture! Perfect perfect perfect!!
