    So happy to be back at your restaurant again!! We were warmly greeted and Jenny, our server, was very friendly and patient! It was a cool night and we requested the heater which was brought over right away but would not light. We were very disappointed after several requests that nothing was done about trying to light it. We asked if we could move to the empty table in the corner that had a working heater at it. We were told no…that it was already booked! We left about an hour and a half later and the table we requested with the working heater and surrounding tables were still empty!!! One of the managers (I think) eventually came over (after I went inside to request the heater) and was able to get it working in probably less than 1 min! It was nice to have some heat but would have been more comfortable if they had made the effort to start it sooner. We are really looking forward to coming back to Portside Fusion many times over the next few months!!!

    Where to begin… I booked this place based on the good reviews but our experience was far from amazing. We arrived a little before our slotted time and was seated right away but that was the extent of the “good service” we received. The service was extremely slow. Our waiter took a while to get our orders and they took even longer to cook. Our apps took about 40 min to come and the main another 40 min or longer. We were there for 2 hours with a total time of 30 min for eating and waiting the rest of the time. The food was over cooked and overpriced. The octopus was tough, flavourless and over cooked. The pork that came with their surf and turf (instead of beef) was dry and hard to chew. My husband ordered the dry aged steak and he said the Costco steaks he makes at home is way better. And goodness their mojito is the worst mojito I’ve had. It’s literally just lime juice with ice. Couldn’t taste the tequila and definitely needed more mint. All I can say is the food is mediocre at best. Definitely won’t be back. I wouldn’t recommend this place at all.

    Celebrating a birthday with 2 couples attending. It was a cool night with the threat of rain coming. The waiter didn't ignite the outdoor heaters until we asked him. Also put up the outdoor umbrellas when it started to rain, but no offer to move us inside. The waiter quickly brought out a candle-lit dessert for the birthday person after our dinner plates were removed, but never asked if anyone else at the table wanted to order dessert.

    I was disappointed in the service. It took more than 20 minutes to get water, and on top of that, my husband and I didn't have the chance to finish our dessert; the waiter gave us the bill and took out dessert away. What the hell... And it was only 9:20. A place that we do not feel welcomed! I would not recommend it to friends and family, especially we love port carling.

    The food is fantastic. The mussels were enough for two and delicious. My chicken was tender, beautifully marinated and very moist. The risotto was also excellent. My wife's burger was one of the best she had ever had. The fries are the best I ever had. The key lime pie was sublime. Service was superb. When we had a question the chef came out to answer it. Going back tomorrow.

    Good food but it took a long time to receive even though the restaurant wasn’t that busy. People who were seated, and ordered, after us received their food ahead of us so not sure what happened with our order. Overall great venue and service was very good.

    This is a lovely spot with great outdoor seating. The food was very good and service was great. It’s definitely a place to treat yourself, but not an everyday outing as the prices were quite steep for the serving size. Definitely recommended.

    Overpriced for food that is not worth it. Taste was below standard for the price you pay. View is nice. We were seated at a pretty dirty table. Told the waiter and he did clean it up. Would rather have gone to Turtle Jack's or Taco spot by the river.

    I thought, the value of the appetizer was extremely over priced ! Two scallops for $18… Highway robbery. The main course came out rather lukewarm if at best, considering it was pasta and that the noodles should’ve been steaming. Overall, rated a three star experience due to the factors mentioned above. Would I go back… Don’t think so.

    Really nice patio. Thank you for seating us overlooking the water. Burrata and tomato appetizer was delicious! The toasted bread was a great compliment that we requested, but was surprised by an extra charge for 2 slices. Chicken supreme and linguine dishes were great, but small portions. Key lime pie was really good. Nice presention of all the food. Some dinner music would be nice. Happy to have celebrated our 20year anniversary here!🤗
