Apparently they were short staffed and a couple of large sports groups showed up ...as a result we waited over 45 minutes for our food. My husband asked for more tartar sauce which did not arrive until he was done his meal.

Not what what we expected. Our first server was very pleasant; when their shift was over, our next server ignored us as we watched them fawn over what seemed to be the more 'exciting' patrons in the place. I had to order our next round by chasing them to the order station after multiple passes by our table without checking in; and then no courtesy apology for having to catch them to place our order. Food was fair. Not going back.

While the food has the potential to be very good, our experience was less than ordinary. I had indicated in the reservation we were celebrating a birthday and gifts were exchanged yet the staff did not offer any recognition of the celebration. And all pizzas, both those on gluten free crusts and those on regular were over cooked on the edges. The one thing I will give the staff credit for is when I found something hairlike on my last slice of pizza, they did not charge for my food which is very fair.

Came to this restaurant based on getting gift cards from Costco. The food was ok and the portions were healthy. 4 of us dined for $100 with no alcohol which was fine. The service however was not. We were put in the back of the restaurant by the washrooms, and I guess the fact that we were out of sight meant that the server wasn’t thinking about us. Perhaps the fact that we weren’t consuming alcohol contributed to this. Either way the poor service was a turn off and I won’t be returning.

Our Family went to crust and craft for lunch before heading to a 67’s game. The restaurant was busy because it was a beautiful Saturday. Our service was prompt and our server was genuinely interested in us enjoying our visit. Our food was very good. Will definitely go back.

Great service and very good food. The reason I gave a poor value rating was the absurdly overpriced glass of wine ($20 for an 8oz glass).

Great music. Service was excellent. Food was hit and miss. Their cobo salad was fantastic, but their pizza, which is what they are known for, is so so. I feel it is because they try to save cost and use canned/packaged toppings and it is noticeable. Their onion rings were undercooked. Wine/beer was great. Could have had a better selection of desserts.

We went for the Sunday Brunch. Our server was excellent, we got our drinks quickly, and I liked the Brunch menu. After that it went down hill. It took us forever to get our food, at least twice as long as I would consider normal. Other people around us seemed to be waiting a long time as well. While the food was tasty, it seemed overcooked, the poached eggs on my skillet could have been hard boiled as well as the egg on the pizza that a friend ordered. The french toast was very ordinary, one well presented, once not at all. The side of bacon ordered separately, arrived late and in little bits.

Overall, the restaurant had a nice ambience, staff seemed very good, a nice variety of menu but the whole experience colored by a kitchen that is not very good.

Pre-concert dinner with wife and kids. Service was prompt and efficient and attentive. Menu selecton was good and varied - we had the veggie burger, fish and chips, ravioli and a pizza. All good. Fish & chips was a bit average — too much batter on the fish made it appear bigger than it needed to be —- way more batter than fish. Otherwise, a good meal had by all.

We arrived 20 minutes early and the host was more than happy to seat us as our table was already ready. The other guests in our party were about 20 minutes late, but this also didn't seem to be a problem, which was very much appreciated. Food arrived quickly and was good. Server was very accommodating and cheerful. Overall a good experience.

Had dinner here around 7pm on a Wednesday, so it was fairly quiet. Wasn't overly warm to me, the temperature seemed ok. The food was excellent, our server was very nice and was recommended some beers for a sample tray based on our tastes and I was really happy with what she suggested. Really love the decor as well and the seats are super comfortable. I'm definitely going to be coming back!
