Our waitress was disorganized and inattentive. We had to ask for water and even for cutlery. The Blarney Chips were yummy but we had to lift them with our fingers, really! Enjoyed my Fish Tacos but the Caesar Salad was limp and hardly had any dressing…not appetizing at all

I would not recommend this patio to anyone. It took a very long time to get seated, or even greeted. It was very understaffed with only one waitress and two runners on a Saturday afternoon. I ordered a sangria which was so disgusting I returned it. My friend ordered a cheeseburger which arrived black and burnt. Overall would not return again.

Better menu selection, e.g. more vegetarian options and sugarless desserts would be nice.

Food was extremely dried out. Had to send our appetizer back to be remade and our meals were of the same cooking quality. Haven’t been here in many years, and won’t be planning to return. Hope these problems were just a matter of getting back into a routine after the Covid lockdown situation otherwise business will be lost to other restaurants in the area.

Of course based on patio and location, you hear traffic. Re value for the money...well, if you book here, you need to expect the prices are a wee bit greater than you expect. But, presentation of food excellent. It was delicious. Wait staff went over and above. The patio was great. Just my table and one other table with people. Loved that I could reserve a table for lunch. Many restaurants I called, I could not. I will definitely go back.

Our table was right next to the parking lot so we didn’t have the ambience I would have liked. Other than that a very enjoyable meal.

We were taken in quickly, drinks came fast, food was quick and delicious. There was the right amount of tree cover on the back side of the patio that allowed for some sun but not to much at 530 at night for us.

Service was quick and friendly. My meal was great; warm and tasty. However my wife's burger was a little raw in the centre and her cauliflower appetizer was on the cold side. Otherwise, everything else was great.

I had a reservation for indoor seating because it was supposed to be cold. When we arrived, they told us we had to wait to be seated inside. After a while of waiting, we were told we could sit outside and start ordering, and they would bring us indoors as soon as a table opened up. They sat us at a table far away from a heater, and promised to move us to the heater as soon as that table opened up. Two of those tables opened up within 10 minutes, and they instead moved people that had arrived after us into the heated area. By the time we got our food, my hands were so cold that I could barely pick it up to eat, and the food quickly became too cold to enjoy. Although we continued to ask about being moved somewhere warmer, no one ever did anything about it. After we asked for our bill, they brought a heater over to the table next to us, so clearly they had the option to make us at least a little more comfortable but we were not a priority. Besides the cold, parts of my meal were wrong and we were never offered another drink or more food. If I make a reservation, I expect there to be a spot reserved for me or at least tell me straight up that you won’t be able to accommodate me. I would not have agreed to sit outside if I had known I would be spending the duration of my meal there and I would have preferred to go home. It was not worth my time or money.

No vegan options other than a Lightlife patty and lettuce ... really need to step up the vegan options. It’s not hard to source bread/buns with no sad ingredients.

Server was lovely (personality), but terrible. It took what seemed like FOREVER...
Food was awful, overcooked and very little considering the cost. (i.e. I had a Rueben and the meat was hard like beef jerky and was barely there). I have also had a Rueben at State & Main, and it was like comparing apples to oranges - State & Main was far, far superior.
Will not return to Fionn MacCool's.

This was the second time I've been to Fion MacCool's. The service was great and the food was delicious. Very reasonably priced as well. My only complaint is that the Garlic Cheddies are no longer on the menu however I will still be a returning customer.
