    They closed the restaurant for the season with no notification to us. We drove 30 mins to get to the restaurant to find this out. Disgraceful from the owner operator side of the business.

    We’re seated beside the bathroom. They don’t offer complimentary bread, even though we were all eating soup. Wine was $20 per glass, a bit steep. Food was good but portions were small (beef dip). Stew was very good.

    Eaten here before was great. Second time around, not so much. Smelled like septic tank when we first walked in. Soup was cool. Ordered the charcuterie board, had to ask for the crackers (they were out of crackers. Didn’t let us know before we ordered. It arrived with absolutely nothing to eat it with. Had to ask for bread) literally supplied us with 4 pieces of thinly sliced bread (told us to ask for more if needed. Literally brought us 4 more slices) for a charcuterie board! They were also out of the noodles (and most of the ingredients for a seafood pasta dish) had we not enquired first, they would have let us order it and then informed us AFTER we ordered they didn’t have MOST of the seafood choices in the pasta dish. Dessert was great. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    The food was very good. Carpaccio should have had some seasoning and raw parmesan to make it even better. I strongly recommend that your server stop calling the patrons "darling" and "my darling". I find it offensive from a stranger and I was not the only one. Other tables remarked on it.

    7:15 prebooked reservation but ended up waiting until 8:15 to be seated. We ordered promptly at being seated but were not served until 8:45-9. No cutlery or napkins. No water. Had to ask for everything we needed. Staff tried but we were treated like a nuisance. We were compted a sangria pitcher which was a nice effort. But they really did not want us there. Period

    I ordered the burger and it came overcooked and burnt on the outside. My dinnermate ordered the special - black cod... she said it tasted great but they did not debone the fish... any enthusiasm she had for the meal disappeared quickly. I struggle with this because I had a great meal there 2 weeks ago which this experience no way resembled.

    Food was good but overpriced for what you get. We left hungry after paying a very large bill. Wouldn't recommend until they either bring the prices down a bit or increase the serving size. There's a reason this restaurant isn't full on a Saturday night in the middle of summer. They haven't got the formula right with the prices.

    So, I completely understand that any restaurant in Port Carling/Muslim’s Lakes will be overpriced. What’s inexcusable is mediocre, no, sub-standard food at a high price point. Black Cod (one of the specials) far too salty, with undercooked Brussels sprouts and a tasteless potato purée,$60?? Really. I don’t understand. Your clientele must just be used to it. Never again.

    Well run establishment especially with the front house work of Marcus. Friendly and attentive service. Still a few issues with kitchen co-ordination but the food was good. Especially impressed with the management of staff turnover sparked by University student departure. All in all an excellent experience.

    Overpriced, pretentious and VERY poor service for the bill you’re about to foot. Our appetizers took 50 min to arrive and our mains arrived within 5 min of that. The server gave us so much attitude when we asked about our food and other staff were smoking on the side of the patio so all we smelled was smoke. The pasta we ordered was bland and flavourless and tasted like chef Boyardee. The lamb was mediocre, the fish special was bland. The outdoor patio is beautiful but not for $280. Do yourself a favour and go across the street to Beveragino. Edit: issuing an apology in response but letting me know my dinner bill was only $280 not $400 does not make this experience okay OR the food, service or pricing acceptable. Nor should how much I spend make a difference. In addition, the fact that you admitted you saw how upset we were and made no effort to fix it while we were there makes this even more unacceptable.

    Portside FusionResponded on August 21, 2022Were very sorry about your experience I saw how upset you were about the appetizers and there was no reason they should of taken taken that long. I have spoken with the staff about the issues you have mentioned here as they are very upsetting. However I know that our food is only sourced with the best ingredients. We do appreciate your patronage, and strive to always do better. However I do know that your bill was 280$ So a portion of this review is not fair in our opinion. All the best.

    Service was excellent and patio view was lovely. Staff smoking area was directly by the patio and we smelled cigarette smoke throughout the meal. Menu options were very heavy for a warm summer evening

    Portside FusionResponded on August 21, 2022Were very sorry about this but it was actually the smoker which was just finishing during dinner it turns out the vent pipe has been broken but this is now fixed, our apologies. Also thank you for the kind words.

    Restaurant should have a separate Lunch Menu....little more reasonable then Dinner/more variety as well. Note: Dinner I understand pricing!! For a Burger that costs $27.00 bun was so soggy that my burger fell apart after a few bites. Better quality/thicker bun is needed for sure. Service was good as always, friendly staff. We have eaten here on a number of ocassions when were visiting Port Carling but will tend to go elsewhere for lunch in future. Thanks

    Server was strange, no bread no specials were given. Food took 1 hr 10 mins to come and the burger meat was overcooked and burnt. Not worth the price by any means and wished we had spent our money elsewhere.
