The restaurant was pretty much empty, and we were there to take our time for dinner as we had a good 2h45 before our movie. However, even after telling the waiter that we were in no rush, he was always coming back to the table to get our next course order, as if he was in some kind of rush. We ordered drinks, then an appetizer, then more drinks, then our mains. If there were any specials that night, our server never mentioned them.

Also, someone took away our utensils after the appetizer, and we never got new ones. 10 minutes into receiving the mains, I had been trying to get the waiter's attention, but he was busy chatting and having a drink with the buss boy and other waitress behind the bar, so I had to get up and get new settings myself from another table.

Food was ok, good sized pizza and fresh. I tought 13$ for a small handful of fried cauliflower was a bit much, especially since they only tasted like hot sauce and nothing else.

All in all, it was an ok dinner experience, but nothing to make me want to come back. Not looking for any compensation, only our impressions my husband and I.

Excellent ambience, good service and menu selection. We were early but were given our table as soon as we arrived, which was great instead of standing and waiting in the entrance.

Troy was an amazing server, polite, funny & courteous. We had to wait a little extra for our food but without asking or complaining, he recognized and made sure we were happy! When I made the reservation I was asked if there was an occasion we were celebrating, which was my son's birthday. At the end of the meal, Troy came out with cute little cake and ice cream. We will definitely be returning and celebrating other occasions there. Highly recommended!

The food was great. Greeted with a smile and seated right away. Everyone enjoyed their pizza. Service was attentive, drinks were kept full and the server was friendly. A solid choice before any TD place event.

Our table was not ready when we arrived even though it was pretty empty in the dining area. The device was slow and the food was just okay. It was the second time we were there but this time was not like our first visit when they first opened. Pretty disappointed.

We had a family get together most of the group enjoyed the food but myself personally I did not enjoy the experience
I had the pizza and i found It was lacking pizza sauce and not much flavour
I would try it again in a group setting if asked to go
Service was ok,
Overall it was only ok nothing special

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.

Great pizza! My fave is the Mario’s shopping cart pizza with white sauce instead of tomato sauce.

Good food, but the drinks are overpriced. The waiter was rude and threw items on the table. Wasn't very impressed overall.

The food was good, but the service was only just ok. If they worked on the service staff, it would have been much better.

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.

Horrible, horrible, horrible. Arrived in plenty of time and due to terrible service we were late for the game. Crappy food, bad service and horrible staff. Never again.....

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.

My husband had the fish and chips and way too much batter on the fish.
I had the fish tacos and they were mediocre at best.
We were in and out in good time.
Service was good.
