    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.

    Food had clearly sat undelivered for some time before it was brought to us. Only the server expressed any remorse. Sad because I would have been a nice meal. Not worth the price.

    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.

    Food wasn’t as described, ordered filet mignon stroganoff and it was a cheap steak used with so much fat. Wasn’t enjoyable. Food was way overpriced for the quality.

    The pros - our meal was amazing, the food was delicious, and it's a beautiful place.. The Cons - the atmosphere was very very loud with just people talking noise, and it took over an hour and 15 minutes for our food to come, no bread offered or something to snack on. For such an upscale restaurant, I expected a little more attention to the service.

    Legacy RestaurantResponded on October 7, 2022Thank you for dining with us Smitty! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience at Legacy.

    Excited to see some upgrades in the dining area since our last visit. Probably a little too much lighting(very bright). Server was new but did her best. Opportunity for the server would be to advise on what would be appropriate level of cooking for meats. Portions were good. Flavour was minimal. Wait time was over an hour. Chocolate mousse desert was awesome. Restaurant appeared to be lacking a front of house manager.

    Food was amazing as always. Service was good we had to ask a few times for more water. We were offered still or sparkling which were both in bottles (we should have also been offered tap in my opinion) I did not see the bill but I am guessing that the still was a charge as it was bottled where tap I would think would be complimentary. Although I appreciate them pouring the water for us more bottles on the table would make it easier on the wait staff as well as the customers if we could fill our own. The service did seem to dwindle near the end of our evening, we needed to ask for our bill a couple of times. All and all GREAT restaurant as always and we DEFINETLY will be back

    A very nice restaurant but the servings are small, especially for a male appetite. A $45.00 entree consisted of a small serving of fish, one small potato cut in half, 3 mini tomatoes, 2 small carrots and 3 pieces of asparagus. Presentation was nice, but not great value!
