For a unique non mainstream menu options, and perfectly prepared meals. Steak and Brussels sprouts for dinner, a great choice.
Tried the brisket sandwich for lunch, rather sparse on the protein, and seemed more a Montreal smoked meat sandwich, so, could do with an increase in portion size.
I’d go back tho, and try something else

Great restaurant. I would definitely order the mussels again with their white wine and tomato sauce. Their lobster Mac and cheese is also a delicious dish with large chunks of lobster.

It was my second time and I was a bit disappointed with my choice of meal (Ravolini) Music was too loud. Otherwise the rest was good.

We got the brussel sprouts and salmon bruschetta and bocconcini and tomato salad as appetizers. The Brussels sprout and bruschetta were amazing, however the bocconcini salad was very plain. Because the appies were so good we were very excited for our mains. We ordered the rail platter and were sadly disappointed, the prawns were over cooked and super chewy and stringy. Both pastas were dry and lacking flavour, the meatballs were just plain awful, and the lamb was also over cooked and had quite an odd flavour. The best thing in the platter was the Italian sausage which was sad. We wanted to give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt and think maybe this platter was quantity of food over quality of food, but we were very disappointed. We want to go back and try some of their entres and see if maybe they are better when they aren’t cooking huge platters. But we don’t want to be disappointed again. Our waitress was super lovely though! And the restaurant itself was really cute and we loved the ambiance of it.

The decor and service were pretty good. The food was okay, we had the Chilli Lemon Scallops and the sauce was bland and the scalloped were slightly over cooked. Lobster tail was dry and a little over cooked and it was an add on that we were told was super good. It basically cost the same as having another appetizer but was that tasty. We also ordered a stuffed chicken breast it has a nice crispy skin but the meat was very dry. The meal was fairly expensive for the flavours and how it was prepared. The quality of the ingredients were good and portion size were good. Perhaps it was a busy night and it was hard for the kitchen staff to keep up the quality coming out of the kitchen. Might try again at lunch time but would be willing to have a expensive dinner there again until there is some improvements.

Beautiful spot in Fort Langley. Service was friendly but a little slow, especially considering that we were dining out with a small child. Good wine list, but quite a large menu. Seafood cocktail was okay, had one prawn and one piece of lobster and didn’t really feel inclined to have anymore. Black cod entree was disappointing overall. Fish was cooked quite nicely but there was really nothing else to the dish aside from a massive pile of rice and some bland sautéed vegetables. Our server also offered us some books and a train for my child to play with - a kind gesture but a little bit off as well considering the emphasis on health and safety during Covid.

It’s a beautiful restaurant and we love Fort Langley. We will likely return but I will definitely order different items next time.

Booked a reservation on a whim and was NOT disappointed! The tapas were phenomenal! My mum, who is a very picky eater, couldn’t decide what to order because she wanted to try everything. 10/10 would recommend & dine again.
