I do not recommend it. Poor service, no effort with preparing food. We had beef ribs - whole bone and a lot of collagen/fat, no meat with overcooked veggies. The only good was a desert and wine.

A very pleasant waterfront venue. Good food, friendly efficient service and well priced. We were there for Sunday brunch. Menu a bit limited but,like so many places right now, may be Covid related. Just glad to see them open and surviving. Will definitely go back

Food was not good. Ordered the clams could not finish. Definitely not fresh or overcooked.

Service was rushed we got there at 8:40 as soon as we good there they rushed us. For example they brought appetizers and mains out at same time.

The restaurant was very nice. As expected, as we had been there before. I don't know why some restaurants try to seat you at a terrible table. We don't put up with that. Once we got a preferred table we were fine. The bartender mixed a very good cocktail. The food was very good once it was replaced with hot food (both dishes - just one of those things). The appetizer was excellent.
What really made the night was the server. She was fantastic and worth a 20% tip which is my top, top, top.

Dinner was good but I made a reservation the week before and when we fit there they sat us upstairs on the patio it was okay but we went for the view and ambiance and you don’t get that looking through plastic Next time we would ensure we were on main floor.

The food was great (the duck is fantastic). The service is terrific. The dining room is very nice, and the location is great. The only thing preventing it from being perfect was that it was a bit noisy--I had difficulty hearing my companion over other people's conversations. I would definitely go again though, and recommend to others.

Good place and atmosphere. Food was good but a little over priced. Drinks were definitely over priced. Overall it was an awsome place for our anniversary. I would recommend to other people.

The service was average, nothing spectacular even though there we’re only 4 tables in the restaurant. We had the dine out menu, the pork lettuce wrap lacked flavour. All the food came out way too quickly. We would just finish the last bite of our previous meal when the next meal would already be served. It’s a treat for us to go out, so we would’ve loved to have been dined properly than feel rushed. The turtle palate cleanser was a cute touch. However, Effe the bartender was lovely.

My husband and I chose Lift for our Valentine's dinner. Good menu selection - I chose the crab appetizer and lamb and ravioli; my husband the turbot stew, which was flavourful. Our server was attentive enough although we kept our own wine glasses filled. The negative? We were placed by a window; unfortunately we were also close to the bar and kitchen. So, every 5-10 minutes, we could hear the shaking of martini's being made, we could hear the chatter in the kitchen and most aggravating a server putting away the just cleaned cutlery in the tray, the sound reverberating through our section. Will we go back for a casual dinner? yes probably. For Valentine's never again.

The food and service were great as usual but we were given a table upstairs. I realize it was Valentine’s Day and they were using the whole restaurant but it was really cold up there. There were only three heaters and we ended up wearing our jackets and shivering for most of the meal. The food also got cold very fast. I wouldn’t go back in the winter if I couldn’t get a table in the restaurant’s main floor. A little disappointed for a special occasion 😐

We had a couple of different servers and had to request everything: I had to continually ask for a refill on our drinks (water included) and nobody took our empty plates away (exasperated, I stacked them at the edge of the table HOPING someone would notice but it wasn't until I flagged them down for a water refill that they grabbed the plates).
Normally a server would have asked us how the food was, but they only came to the table to take our order and drop off the food. It was happy hour, to be fair, BUT there were a number of servers at the bar and milling around. I was disappointed in the service we received, as it is normally quite outstanding.

Awesome service. Food was good and fast service. Restaurant had great views and decor. Most impressively, the table stone counter is warmed from underneath! Feels warm to touch on a winter day.

Only real downside was seated on the upper deck with the plastic wrap around on a cold night. We found it a bit uncomfortable for dining.

The table was well situated and the service was great in that the option to get the dine-out special a la carte was made to happen. No fuss.
The happy hour drink choice was good but we wanted a bottle of Joie rose!
The ambiance for the quiet date night out was a propos! The other guests were barely noticed in that everybody was quiet and social distancing.
This was our second time there but definitely not our last.

Made a reservation for lunch. Food was tasty and arrived at the table nice and warm. The plate was nicely presented. The staff were friendly and the place is clean. Coffee was hot and fresh. The only downside, and overall very minor, was that the Mimosas we ordered were made with flat Proseco. Other than that I'd definitely recommend them for a nice brunch.

The "Braised" lamb was tough and chewy. The staff came off as a little rude or stuck up. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the location is amazing. For the price I expected to be blown away and I really wasn't.

Great to place to be at, food is awsome, staff is friendly and the service is great... the only disappointment was that the view wasnt that great although made a request and was confirmed also, which I think is not the staff's fault.... hopefully next time will get a better one.... Keep rocking

It was our anniversary dinner.
Service was good. I ordered fish and it smelt & tasted very fishy. Told my server and he replied that, it’s that kind of strong fish like sardines & that’s why it tasted like that. I’ve had that kind of fish before and it never had a smell or fishy taste like that!
I found the food way over priced for the quality.
