    I have enjoyed Chef Kershaw food since his place on James St in Hamilton and we are regulars to Rapscallion. So I was very excited to see my favourite Liver brûlée on the menu! Also enjoyed the octopus and Antipasto. Great cocktails too!

    A pleasant surprise. We had a very nice meal at edit, with perfectly executed apps (octopus for me, arancini for my wife). The mains were a little more pedestrian — beef brisket and fish and chips. The fish and chips were great, and the beef brisket was fine, though I have had more interesting, more flavorful brisket elsewhere. Our waitress was absolutely delightful.

    My review is based on eating their vegetarian/seafood items on their menu. We had the octopus, ratatouille and salmon. I wish their portions were larger, it was not worth the money we paid for the food. It was good, but not ideal if you’re really hungry. The octopus was excellent, we wanted to order 3 more. You get just 1 tentacle on the plate.

    edit. - The Arlington HotelResponded on August 2, 2022While it's great to hear that you enjoyed the quality of our dishes, it's unfortunate to hear that you were disappointed with the portion sizes. With the rising transportation costs for food products, we are trying our best to provide the best quality for the price. Thank you for joining us, we hope to see you again.

    Our waiter, Erin, was excellent and the ambiance and food was very good. This is our second lunch visit and my only wish (for a 5 star rating) is that there was a larger selection of Mains. The hamburgers, reuben, fish & chips, gnocchi, etc., all seemed fairly heavy and more suited to a pub aesthetic ... the only lighter protein option seemed to be the Cobb salad. The decor in the hotel is so lovely that it suits a menu with more unique, specialized offerings.

    edit. - The Arlington HotelResponded on August 2, 2022Hi Lori, Erin was delighted to hear of your kind words! Thank you for the feedback on the menu, we are always thinking about the next one. It's good to know what our guests are looking for.

    Beautiful Restaurant- great ambiance and service. Fantastic location and patio in downtown Paris. Cocktails were delicious, especially the briny Caesar. Appetizers were very small. There was 4 of us, we had the aranchini And octopus… not really enough for 4 people. (1 small piece of octopus and only 3 aranchini). The gnocchi, burger and brisket were tasty. The fish and chips were way over battered and the batter was super thick.

    edit. - The Arlington HotelResponded on July 14, 2022Hi Brea, It's great to hear that the time spent with us was enjoyable... cocktails with friends on the patio always helps that. Our appetizers do have some selections that are better for sharing, while others (as noted), are better suited for individuals. I am sorry to hear that the preparation on the fish and chips wasn't up to the standard that we like. Please reach out directly to ben@arlingtonhotel.ca and we can continue the conversation. Thanks again, Ben

    A lovely covered back porch for al fresco dining. Two of our favourite appetizers in town…grilled octopus, and the Chicken Liver Brûlée. Last evening we really enjoyed their recent menu addition of Ratatouille. Attentive and courteous service always. Don’t understand why they are not busier all the time. Will return soon.

    edit. - The Arlington HotelResponded on June 25, 2022How did you know that those are two of our favourite appetizers too? Thank you for the kind words; we can't wait to have you back!

I found the batter on my order of fish a bit thick , but the fish itself was fine . Staff were happy to let s relax and continues to pour water and check on us as we chatted . Thank !

    The antipasto was amazing but the meals themselves fell short. Some music on the patio would have been nice. Expensive drinks but delicious.

    edit. - The Arlington HotelResponded on June 16, 2022It's great to hear that the Antipasto hit the mark for you. Thank you for the honest feedback.

    The ambiance was soothing. The server was friendly and engaging. The background noise was low so that we three seniors were able to have a conversation and hear each other which is so important. With hearing problems it is a bonus to have a venue in which to enjoy a delicious lunch and still be heard when we speak. Thank you

    the hamburger was delicious, on a soft bun. We prefer our fish grilled, so would not order fish and chips again, too much batter very little fish inside. it was very nice, not noisy as most restaurants get, however not overly crowded. We will definitely visit again and bring friends.

    Wonderfully decorated, loved the library seating area. Food was so flavourful. Great value and customer service from the time you entered to leaving. So fortunate to have such a five star dinning experience here in our backyard, Ayr to Paris. Really love it our number 1 place. Only recommendation is live music.
