    Dined at Legacy with my wife for our anniversary. The ambiance, the service and the meal itself were fantastic. The prices were fair for the portions and quality of the dishes, and we are looking forward to returning in the future.

    Terrible New years brunch. Everything was cold. No heat under any chaffing dish. Bacon was limp and sitting in pooled grease. No house made breads or desserts. No toast / just cold buns with butter pats also cold. Never again will I go there for any breakfast or brunch.

    Legacy RestaurantResponded on January 4, 2023Hello Mike, thank you for reaching out to us. We are so sorry to hear about your poor experience however, we appreciate your feedback and will use it to improve our brunch and breakfast experiences in the future. We hope to see you again for a better experience.

    We went for the New Years Day brunch. We literally had no waitress. The hostess brought us water and coffee and then we never saw anyone again until we got up to leave. The waitress then acknowledged us and asked if we were leaving. It was one of the strangest restaurant experiences I have ever had. No one wants to eat at a restaurant where you are invisible to the people working there. Hands down the worst service I’ve had in a restaurant that only had a handful of tables occupied.

    Legacy RestaurantResponded on January 4, 2023Hi Amanda, we are so sorry to hear about your experience this pas weekend. Our New Year’s Eve brunch was a buffet so unfortunately there were not servers to bring the food to you. We hope to see you back at legacy in the future for a better, miscommunication-free experience.

    We had a bigger group of guests reserve a table for NYE. Dinner service was 4 hours long total from the time we arrived to the time we paid (7-11 pm), despite pre-ordering when we reserved from their limited NYE menu, which we assumed they would be prepared for. This “dinner” ended up ruining our evening and as we arrived very late to our other new years plans. Server disappeared for 30-40 minutes at a time, with no communication with regards to why there was a delay. Took over 30 minutes to get drinks. Food was all served cold and staggered amongst guests at our table. One of our guests had to send her steak back 2x before they got the cook right. Portions were way too small (one baby carrot and one piece of asparagus for the vegetables) and overall the food was not good and way over-priced (75 per meal plus drinks). Many of us left still hungry. There was a loud party next door with a band or DJ that started around 930 pm so for an hour and a half of our dinner we couldn’t talk to one another at our table without raising our voices. Very disappointing and unacceptable experience. Definitely won’t be returning.

    Legacy RestaurantResponded on January 4, 2023Hi Pablo, thank you for reaching out to us about your experience at Legacy. We are so sorry to hear that your dinner did not go as planned and agree that this is not an acceptable experience. With that, we have taken into account your feedback and will continue working with our front of house staff, kitchen team, and management to assure that all events run more smoothly. We hope to see you back one day for a much better experience and again we sincerely apologize.

    The server was extremely efficient and friendly. The ambience was lacking as customers were placed close together row by row. We asked to be moved to a more private seating and , luckily, a booth opened for us. The amuse bouche was cold and hard, the lobster bisque was thin with sparse and tiny morsels of lobster My Creole chicken was very tasty but was accompanied by mushy risotto/rice and cold vegetables. The key lime pie was delicious. However, based on my experience, I would consider the meal to be overpriced and would not return. They were underwhelming in their attempt to be a high end restaurant.

    Legacy RestaurantResponded on January 4, 2023Thank you for joining us on New Year’s Eve Beth! We are happy to hear that our service was great and we hope to continue to improve other aspects of our dining experience for you and our other guests. In the future, we will continue working alongside our event planning committee and kitchen staff to improve our seating and meal preparation. We hope to see you again here at Legacy in the future.

    The Christmas buffet was incredible. Staff was amazing and service outstanding! They had someone assist my father in law at the buffet so that we could all go together...carried it right back to the table. Buffet with prime rib, roast turkey, alllll the fixings, and a made to order pasta bar, and deserts for days. You made Christmas dinner an absolute joy...my father in law was so happy with his meal, we couldn't have asked for any better! Thank you to the hard working staff who gave up their holiday to make ours memorable.

    Legacy RestaurantResponded on January 4, 2023Thank you and your family for joining us on Christmas Day Jenn. We are overjoyed to hear that your experience surpassed expectations and we will surely let the serving team know how good of a job they did. We appreciate your feedback, it is customers like you that allow us to make Legacy the amazing restaurant that it is!

    We love many things about this restaurant, the cocktails are amazing as is the service. We have had dinners here many times since it opened. My only criticism is the menu hasn’t changed. Keep the signatures and change up some of the appetizers and entrees. Otherwise this place doesn’t disappoint. Amber

    6 of us went for dinner at 530 and at 645, we still did not have our appetizers. But the time we had finished and paid it was after 9 pm. The food was just okay and the menu was more of a lunch menu than dinner at a fine restaurant. Our server Ruhel? Was very kind and treated us nicely

    Legacy RestaurantResponded on January 4, 2023Hi Sally, thank you for coming in! We are happy to hear that our servers treated you kindly as good service is something we pride ourselves on at Legacy. We are so sorry to hear about your wait and dissatisfaction with the food and menu. Unfortunately Sunday through Tuesday we offer only a limited menu. We hope to see you again on another day where you can experience the full menu and all that Legacy has to offer. Thank you so much for the feedback.

    All food was excellent. But I would asks the chef NOT to cut my ribeye. My food was very cool when it arrived. It was such a shame to cut the steak this way, as it was more than cool, but not cold when it arrived. The potatoes were stone cold. Asked for new ones, and they were only warm when they arrived. We were a table of 7, and enjoyed our evening very much. We will go back again. But if I am paying $62 for a ribeye, I want it hot. Please warm the plates. Great atmosphere. Service was very good, as was the ambiance was very nice. Again, we will return. Lovely spot.

    Legacy RestaurantResponded on January 4, 2023Thank you for visiting Kimberlee, we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Legacy.

    Food not as nuanced as it used to be, sadly, and as such the value for the dollar is down. Everything else was good. Always a pleasant place and pleasant people and very good service. We will try again in case it was just a slightly off night for the food.

    Our guests enjoyed the mushroom risotto, rack of lamb, a venison special and the beef stroganoff pappardelle. All dishes were excellent and priced at $35-50. We sat in a booth that was a bit tight for four people so we would choose a table next time. The restaurant can be noisy when full, but it was about half full on this occasion so that was not an issue. The bruschetta appetizer was very average. We did not have dessert, but the English ale on tap was excellent. Service was welcoming and attentive. We’re always pleased when dining at Legacy. It’s our favourite place to take guests and celebrate special occasions. We especially enjoy dining al fresco in the “moat” as weather permits.

    Love the ambience of this restaurant. The service was fantastic, from the host to the server. Food came out quickly. Steak was quite over cooked (medium well but asked for medium rare) and part of my main course was missing (no starch, menu said it would have mini red potatoes.) Great wine selection. Cheesecake was superb as were the jumbo scallops we had as an appetizer. Will go back but will likely stick to appetizers/dessert and drinks rather than full meals.

    We went for our Anniversary. We were seated at a very small table very close to the couple beside us. In the middle of our meal the hostess and a waiter opened the patio doors beside us and started carrying more tables inside. It was a cool October evening. Our waitress was very friendly and sweet her name was Swas. The food was good.
