We went for a nice night out, but my food was brought 10 minutes before my boyfriend's, although I wasn't given a steak knife for 10 minutes after that. By the time I could actually eat my steak, it was cold. The potatoes that can with it were extremely greasy. I ordered mushrooms at an extra cost, and got only a few slices of one.

The tables were extremely close together and my chair was physically touching the one of the guest sitting behind me.

Very disappointed in such a terrible experience for a rare night out

We loved this place. The service was absolutely great; thanks to the polite, friendly and smiling staff members, We loved the Braised Lamb Shank and the seafood chowder. The Moroccan dip with the Goat cheese made me remember home. We visited on a busy day but the food was worth the wait. Also, the Kamloops Heritage Riesling wine is a must-try.

As always, Romeos ambiance never fails to deliver beautiful lighting, spacious seating and a feeling of comfort overall.
I hate only being able to give them 3/5 stars as we do like to visit.
Our previous visit was for dinner items. The new food menu was sensational and the plates were beautiful and delicious. The service was great!
We decided to try the New Years brunch. I hadn’t planned on getting the buffet because I’m always so disappointed with it but they did not offer a menu option. The staff that we had was frazzled. It took too long to get basic things and we felt forgotten about. The food was just ok. They offered crab legs, which I’m sure appeals to many, but the $30 price tag for people who don’t eat it wasn’t justified. It was $115 for us to have a mediocre brunch.
If we return, it will be for the dinner menu options.

Two of our party felt their meals should have been better. The meatloaf was a bit overdone both in cooking and spicing. Service was generally good but the attire of the server did not match the ambiance.

I have heard good things about Romeo's Kitchen. We chose to go for their Thanksgiving buffet on Oct 13. We were seated quickly and the service was good (not above average or exceptional). However, the buffet was pretty pitiful. As in, not enough food, empty serving bins, sad lumps of things here and there, an NO sweet potatoes at all and NO pumpkin pie!! Also, the turkey did not taste good, it tasted leftover. We were very underwhelmed. The waitress told us it's the first time the restaurant has done a Thanksgiving buffet, so we understand that some problems are to be expected. But overall it was very disappointing. With one beer and one glass of wine our bill was $87 before tip and it was not worth it!

Everything yummy. Service great. We had a group of 7. OUR table was a bench with chairs which made it difficult to get out. Suggesting not to put a big group on a bench seat with no way out except to move the entire table or everybody.

Romeo’s was a delight! The food was spectacular. I had the seafood pasta dish and it was so yummy, I probably could have had a second bowl. There was plenty of seafood and the price was very reasonable.
We initially thought we wouldn’t need a reservation as it appeared open when looking on OpenTable but upon getting to the restaurant there was a waiting list. It was faster to then go online and book a reservation than wait, which we did. Appears they have the restaurant separated by sections based on type of seating

enjoyable evening ----- three of us shared three appetizers; mussels, crab cakes, calamari, along with a salad. I also had the chowder ---- all were delectable and the soup was some of the best chowder I have had, with a wide variety of seafood within. The other two diners also talked highly of their meals; one had a lovely salad while the second had a burger and said it was really good.
Our server [ sorry about the name] was terrific.
