    Food is great as always with fairmont across Canada tbh. But the bread is cold… why fairmont??? Now the service is questionable. We were seated at the corner and there was a private event going on. And somehow fairmont think having one server for 15 tables is good idea? I had to walk up to the server for any orders of the dishes. In addition, our server forgot that I order drinks, which was later compensated by the on-house dessert. Except, it was a birthday celebration, usually fairmont is good with having dessert on house just cuz of that… but not only nobody said anything in fairmont, no dessert was provided cuz of that too.. Anyway, reign is a nice restaurant only if not so short staffed cuz everything felt rushed or unattended..

    Husband and I stopped for dinner here before the game. Food was really good. Well prepared, good quality and great presentation. We had the beef tartar and foie gras to start. Both were spectacular. For mains, I got the duck breast and my husband had the halibut. Both were also cooked to perfection. Really impressed with the halibut actually. We also had cocktails and a couple of glasses of wine; cocktails were also very good. Wrapped up dinner with espressos. The server did forget our dessert but we didn’t mind since we were pretty full at the end. Overall a great experience; really enjoyed the food. Place is also beautiful. Great ambiance; feels upscale being at the Fairmont. Great lighting; perfect for a nice romantic date or if you’re just craving a delicious meal.

    We found the food interesting but overly seasoned in particular steak served with a sauce… very salty. Otherwise, it was a good evening, great jazz in the background, nice banquettes.

    Our experience at Reign was outstanding. The ambiance (especially lovely due to Christmas decor), exquisite food and our server (Ava) made the evening an exceptional one for us. Worthy of note was the fact that Ava called me by name from the moment we arrived and was aware we were celebrating 2 birthdays and 2 retirements. Incredible attention to detail and such a special personal touch! Pricing was extremely reasonable for the venue and quality of food. The wine list, while extensive, catered to all income brackets. Our server was well versed and able to recommend a couple of excellent choices at a mid range price level. I highly recommend Reign! Marianne T. Stinson

    The only thing I would like Reign to be better is my servers can help to clear our dishes quicker than today,or maybe a bigger table is another solution but it’s impossible.we see next table always had their server attend closely which is very lucky for them!

    Chose REIGN to celebrate a special occasion with a group of friends and we were not disappointed! Our server Mohammed was very attentive. We had a delay in receiving our entrees, and got a treat from the chef to tide us over. Everyone really enjoyed their meals (duck & lamb ordered across the table). Silence for a good while after entrees arrived because everyone was savouring it. Dessert was also great! We had the strawberry shortcake and the summer haskap.

    We have always wanted to go . It was on our bucket list. Well its off now. We expected the food to be outstanding. The steak and potatoes were cold. The shrimp and scallops were tasteless. What a disappointment. We will never return and we will discourage anyone from going.

    Excellent service from Priscila! We were celebrating our milestone bday. We enjoyed the food and complimentary bday desserts. It was so good we licked the bowl clean. Ambience and decor was luxurious man cave vibes which i dig. Reign has become one of my favorite restaurant choices in the city. Make sure to reso ahead for good seating. Highly recommend 👌

    Very nice experience, the waitress was very kind and started us with drinks, she had good timing and always making sure everything tasted good and if we need anything. My steak was perfectly done so tender, we also took the tartar entrée that was delicious. And for dessert the strawberry short cake. Overall the ambition was perfect and not to noisy.

    Excellent menu options. Like all service industry endeavours, service can be slow at times. But the wonderful thing was, all staff pitched in to serve, follow up, and clear tables as the evening got busy. This certainly helped the serving staff. Well done.

    I brought my parents here as a surprise for their 32nd anniversary. The food was delicious and presented with care, and our waiter Mohammed (or Mo as the other waiting staff called him), was gracious, with a very pleasant personality. The starting sliced bread that was served was crisp and warm, and the butter was equally as fresh. I was surprised to see that the horseradish served with our oysters was grated by hand, and the hot sauce was smooth and not bitter; similar to a quality tabasco sauce. My mother's order of tenderloin was perfectly medium rare as she likes it, and according to her verbal review, the coffee was sublime and was NOT bitter or burnt (and she is very picky when it comes to her coffee!) My father ordered the shrimp chitarra with scallops. The noodles were cooked to al dente perfection, and his red wine (maison lorettes bordeaux) matched well with the dish (I mean...if you want a bordeaux with your fish, I don't judge!). There were scallops of varying sizes that were cooked through and according to him, "not overcooked to the point of bounce." I personally opted for their vegetarian/vegan option, which was heirloom carrots with lentils, parsnip mash, and an assortment of micro-greens. I had a temperance collins to drink, which I feel is slightly similar to a virgin mojito, and it tasted like the real thing! I have had "virgin" drinks elsewhere, and this was one of the best that I have ever had. For dessert, a strawberry cheesecake finished the meal with a flourish, and we went back to our rooms with full bellies and some happy memories. 10/10. I will eat here again in the future when I am in the neighbourhood. One last point: We also had a Reign buffet breakfast the following day, and their assortment of foods was spectacular. I particularly enjoyed the smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, and berries. Non-dairy milks were also available when ordered.

    Since our last visit they have dramatically improved the menu, wine list and the floor plan. We love the new everything. The new floor layout makes for a very quiet noise level which enhances the dining experience. The mains were duck breast and halibut. Both were perfectly prepared with great sides. Our server - Eva, made the meal experience exceptional. First off, she has an amazing knowledge of wine and the wine list. She recommended a perfect bottle of wine to go with the dinner. She was a great conversationalist and we talked quite a bit about wine and the local wineries. Reign is highly recommended.

    Lack of service. Mohammed H is rude, disrespectful person, he has no service ethics. *I asked him water with no ice and he said " the ice in my jar not in your glass" I'm recovering because I got a bad sore throat that's way I asked No ice water and this man never gave me what I asked. *He was so mad because one of my guest joined us when he was taking the order and he said oh!! now I have to move everything in my notes. *a glass of water spill over the table and we had to clean it because he never was there, and he never picked the dirty and wet napkin up from the table. *We had to wait more than 40 min waiting for our food. *When we finished dinner he never cleaned the table. *after more than 20 min he brought the dessert menu and he cleanthe table. *We wait another 40 min to get the dessert. *From the beginning we ordered separate bill and he didn't doit. *we call the manager to complain and this disrespectful waitress scream at me saying that we are liars, he was asking me an explanation. *At the end I got a pen and paper and myself had to make the bill for everyone of my 10 guest one by one. *Means that I reserved an expensive restaurant to: get bad service, we make the waitress job, and being treated in such a disrespectful way, mean s that my friends paid for all this package. *We missed our next reservation in show club. * I was celebrating my birthday and this waitress scream at me. *Yes I'm so mad at the waitress, but honestly I think that is not totally his fault,the restaurant is responsible to give them proper training, how treat customers, how to be ethical and quality service because is obvious that this man has no idea about customer service. * And the saddest thing is that he ruined the work of the chef and the cook, because the food was so delicious, but this man ruined the work of the others and he ruined my celebration. *I just want to thank to Franklin Rodríguez because he tried to do what he could, he tried to do the best for helping us.

    Hair in my ketchup, food took forever to come out and missing part of the order when it did finally come out. Food was mediocre at best. Blistered tomato was barely cooked and steak was under seasoned. The server was not very attentive and did things at his own pace.

    Absolutely LOVE Reign. It was our first time back since the pandemic, and it did not disappoint - in fact, I think it may be even better (and that is not small feat!). We had *the* most delightful meal, the food was spectacular and the service even better. Our server, Jennifer, was a star! We were in a bit of a rush to catch a plane and she got our meal through in a most timely fashion and somehow still managed not to make it feel rushed (although I am sure it was high-stress for her and the rest of the team). Tbh, we just felt utterly pampered! Thank you again, Jennifer and the team for helping celebrate one of our guest's 81st birthday in high style!

    Food was incredible, though the rapini was inedible and we were still charged for it. Our server was okay, but not super attentive and we waited forever for an offer of dessert so we just asked for the bill.
