Permanently Closed - East Side Mario's - Waterloo - University
Very nice and accommodating staff that were friendly and patient. The food is simple with not much protein and a portion of your evening will be spent cutting bread with a steak knife. The lighting in the dining area could also be improved, but overall a good option for vegetarian-friendly meetups that won't hurt your wallet.
When we got there they didn’t have us down for reservations. He said we would be next because he didn’t facecloth the app. We ended up waiting, and because he didn’t write out name down still, they seated several families before us. We asked what was happening, and were told they forgot we were there.
The service was great and they really made it special for my friend's birthday. They almost gave away the surprise, so in the future, read the remarks more carefully but honestly, it wasn't that big of a deal. It was so great, the staff were wonderful and the food was yummy! Thank you for the awesome experience! :)
Our Open Table reservation was not on record at the restaurant; they had not reviewed the service prior to our arrival. The hostess was quite accommodating, though, and quickly arranged a table for our group. We had an enthusiastic, pleasant server for our meal. Our food was delicious. We were very pleased overall.
If you want good italian food, I wouldn't chose East Side Mario's as my first choice in Waterloo.
Much better options are Ennio's in King Street or Mambella's.
Don't misunderstand me., it is simply not good nor bad, just very average.
