    Food + drinks were great, but we were seated next to a big group even though the rest of the restaurant wasn’t full so it was a bit loud + the booth tables seemed kinda low (ie i couldn’t cross my legs comfortably) I was there to celebrate my birthday but the waitress didn’t mention it once so that seemed a bit strange but my friend and i celebrated so that’s what matters most!

    This place requires a credit card that will charge $35 per person no show but when we show up at 130PM we find out there is a small Brunch only menu only! What a joke. Their website only shows one menu, and it has some nice things like charred Octopus etc but that menu not available. The brunch menu is a joke. The waitress asks us if we want any appetizers while we look at the menu. We said what appetizers there are none and she says sorry she has never seen the Brunch menu! The food was average but the kicker at the end was they charged a 3.5% service fee the waitress had no idea what it was about then they added a 22% tip for our group she did not notify me about. I understand a group of eight having a tip added in advance but 22% What a joke. Stay away from this place.

    Food was marginal but service was HORRIBLE. If you could give negative stars thats how I would actually rate the experience. We had to flag down our server every time we wanted to order food or another round of cocktails. I can overlook mediocre food if service is great but this restaurant stunk it up on all levels. Needless to say we’ll never be back or recommend this restaurant.

    We probably will not return. The food was ok. Expensive for a burger compared to other restaurants. Our server was very kind, however it took 25 min to get our drinks. Appetizers came first. They were short staffed, ran out of cloth napkins by 6:45. The ambiance was cool for sure, however they don't have shades for their windows so the sun was in our eyes for 30 min.

    The wait staff rushed us from our table, even though when we made our reservation it said 2 hours for a party of 6+. The prices were too high for the portion size, although the presentation of each plate was impressive. We were seated late and at an hour and quarter in they were clearing our plates and telling us they had to make room for another group. Not what I would expect from a restaurant attempting to portray high end dining.

    I’ve been here several times. 5 star experience the other times. This time I brought the family so the kids could experience it. The Craft House just happened to be out of the dishes i was looking forward to. Easily shareable portions, and very good food. A little spendy, you’re Not getting out of there spending under $150 on a date.

    Dined on a Friday night and the energy/ambiance was lively. Be ready for that. Drinks were delish. Server was ok. Kitchen was inconsistent. Appetizers came out quick. Boyfriend got his entree, but mine was over 35 minutes late. When the charred octopus finally came, it was two tentacles and the rest was fluff. Won’t be back.

    We had 30 of us there for a work gathering. Reserved the sections and ordered a few thousand dollars of food and libations. The servers were great but the manager was yelling at us for moving one of the tables next to each other so we could sit together. He said these are the tables you reserved not these! Couldn’t he just seat the other tables? As a foodie and restaurant aficionado, I have never EVER seen the abuse this person gave us. He even started moving the tables while we were sitting at and handing us the plates to hold before we could even get up. The wait staff was wonderful but will not be bringing our teams from our 18k employee company back.

    Craft House is amazing. Great atmosphere and food was delicious. We had the bone marrow, the branzino and the short rib, all of which were cooked to perfection. So much flavor. The cocktails were also great. Our server was so friendly and helpful. Overall, great place to eat. Definitely going back there again.

    We had 3 in our party. We started off with cocktails: Coco Loco Margarita, Smoking Berries & Lavender Lemon Drop. All were beautifully presented & tasty. Our dinner: Salt Spring Mussels, Short Rib Poutine, Lobster Mac + Cheese and Wake & Bac'n. Food was very good. All on the heavy side. Thankful the Lobster Mac came with a small salad (I needed some vegetable) Service was good. I asked for some suggestions & felt the server was very helpful. My only reason for not rating 5 stars: * expensive. Dinner was almost $200 (including tip) * when making reservations on Open Table, this restaurant requires a credit card & if reservations are not cancelled within a certain time frame you will be charged $35 per person. Not really sure why the restaurant requires this. We dine out quite often and I have not come across any other restaurants require this. At first I was hesitant to make a reservation. Sometimes things happen at the last minute that you cannot avoid. So, something to think about before dining here.

    I thought the quality of food was not worth the price. Our hostess was clueless, she acted like I was putting her out when I told her we had a 7pm reservation. All in all it has a good vibe at the sky desk.

    Generally very good. Prices too high for burgers. Oddly, restaurant not that full at all and could only spare one menu for the table of four. When asked for another, we’re told they were out if them. Just seems like an odd way to run a potentially busy restaurant in a well trafficked area. We had to all share one memo which was kind of ridiculous. Burgers were good but bacon over cooked almost like jerky. Drinks were good.

    Was initially excited for this "new" restaurant. The overall theme of the evening was, "meh". The drinks and appetizers were good. Our entrees were overcooked, too much sauce and too salty. Our waitress service was fine but didn’t seem on top of it and we didn’t really feel like we were fully taken care of compared to other restaurants where they automatically refill your water cup compared to asking you if you want more water when our glasses are already empty and appetizer plates sitting empty on table while we eat our entree. With so much restaurant choices, I’ll probably won’t return to this restaurant.
