The food was great but the overall experience not so much. Made a reservation beforehand but arrived to find out that there was no available seating in the restaurant and that we would have to sit in the closed reception/entry area or wait at least 15 to 20 minutes for our table. Staff apologized but blamed the wait on a lot of walk-ins just before we arrived and a new computer system - it took two staff and likely a manager level person to look up our reservation and inform us of our options. From the number of staff that got involved it appears that they gave our reserved table away to a walk-in but the manager was unwilling to just admit there was a mixup at their end - would have gone a long way to improving our experience. Due to the time (1 hr before last reservation) and no guarantee their estimate of wait time was accurate we took the entry area. Felt very distant and isolated sitting over 50 feet from any other patrons. We were an add-on for our server as her actual section was in the restaurant proper so service was likely not as good as the patrons in the main area. Within an hour it was last call for any orders so felt pushed - not sure how a 9pm reservation would get anything other than water and an appetizer with the kitchen closing just as they are being seated. If you book online I would strong suggest calling afterwards to confirm they have your reservation and will seat you.
We went to Romeos for my birthday dinner. The service was great and the food fantastic.
Thankyou so much for choosing us as the destination for your special day! The perfect atmosphere, great service, and not to mention a free dessert :)
Very good food. Great bottle of wine at half price. Excellent service.
One can never go wrong with a good wine special! We are very happy you chose to dine with us and hope to see you again soon!
As on all of our special occasions we chose Romeo's for a Birthday Celebration. Just the 2 of us, but we were treated like royalty. I had the pan roasted chicken, hubby had 1/2 rack of ribs and we cleaned our plates. Dessert was free as it was his birthday - Creme Brule was awesome.
Thank you so much Florence! It means a lot to us that you choose to visit us on such special occasions. We appreciate you and we hope you had a great birthday!
Horribly overrated! Overpriced food of poor quality. Don’t believe what you read. Mediocre at best.
It is very shocking to hear that you had such a negative experience with us. I do apologize as we strive to provide both great service and food. If you can please email firstname.lastname@example.org, I would love the chance to talk with you about your dining experience in more detail. Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you.
Enjoyed return visit, but food was different, Turkey club was not toasted and that made a big difference.
I am happy to hear that your visit was a good one, but not a great one due to the different quality of food. Thank you for sharing and I have passed your comment along to the Chef. We do hope that you will dine with us again soon :)
Service and food were excellent as always!!
Thank you for the great review and for choosing us as your dining destination!
We arrived and table was ready. Due to Covid there were not many clientes as some tables had been removed. Waitress was Wonderful, friendly and most effecient. I enjoyed having TV's with closed captions... Kept noise level down. All in all a good place not far from hotel where we were staying.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us; we are pleased to hear it was a good one. Hopefully we will see you again in the near future.
Lindsay was fantastic! We enjoyed the food and the patio very much! 😊
We also agree that she is a fantastic server! We are so glad that you were able to experience the nice weather and views that Kamloops has to offer. Visit us again soon!
The food was just OK, portions small, service slow.
Hi Doug, thank you for taking the time to write a review and for letting us know that your experience satisfactory at best. This is very unfortunate to hear and I would love for you to email email@example.com so we can discuss this in more detail. Again, thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
Everybody at our table enjoyed their different entrees. Food was quick and the waitress was very hospitable. Good atmosphere.
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.
Had to wait 40 minutes for a table even though we had reservations.
Felt like they did not have enough staff for the amount of guests there for Valentine’s Day
Excellent dinner and service, as always we enjoyed our evening very much.
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.
Hi clgreen, I want to thank you for giving us a try for brunch, but I am very sorry to hear you had such an unsatisfactory experience. I would love to discuss this in more detail; please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
Great place, especially for a special occasion such as an anniversary!
No desert offered.
Had to retrieve waiter to pay the bill ( and the restaurant was EMTY).
Hi AndrewW, I am truly sorry that you did not receive the best possible service we could provide to you, especially during a slow evening. If you can please email me at email@example.com, I would love to discuss this in more detail. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
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.
Hi RobertB, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate the feedback whether it is positive or negative. I am sorry to hear that your meals were just satisfactory; this is not the quality of food we are trying to promote. If you can please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, we can discuss this in more detail. Thank you and I look forward to your response.
Good food fair prices service was good as well would recommend lavender earl gray martini
The food was a little slow coming out, but otherwise the serving was great and the atmosphere perfect for a Christmas get-together!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for choosing to dine with us!
Our server Nicole was excellent
Thank you for letting us know that our staff member Nicole did a great job, and we thank you for joining us on your birthday!
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!
Be sure to ask for a table not adjacent to the operating fireplace and out of the traffic flow of customers and servers. Detracted from overall ambiance and experience.
We are sorry to hear that your experience was not the best. If you would like to email email@example.com, we would love to hear about this in more detail. I thank you in advance for your time.
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.
I am sorry to hear that your dining experience was not a perfect one and that the table you were sat at was not ideal for your group. I am, however, pleased to hear that you enjoyed both your meals and service and do hope that you will dine with us again.
Good food and drinks. Attendants were friendly and helpful.
Thank you for the review! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. If you are looking for something unique, please check out our website at romeoskitchen.ca for upcoming dinner events!
One could not fault the food however the service left a little to be desired. We had to ask for our wine several times and when it arrived we were not given the opportunity to try it not was the wine poured. Neither were we offered water or our water glasses topped .
Hi CarolineM, we are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your meals, but am disappointed to hear about your negative experience with your server. If you can please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I would love to discuss this in more detail. Thank you for your time.
Great drink special. Wine flight 12 oz. for $12.
Thank you for the review AmyT! You can never go wrong with a wine special, especially one as good as this. Please be sure to visit us again for more amazing specials!
The taste of the food in general was good. The only downside is that they no longer have the crab Benedict but it’s still on the menu.
We are sorry to hear that we removed one of your favorite items, but with a menu change comes new and delicious items to try!
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
A pasta dish full of seafood with a cream sauce, what's not to love?! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your meals and dining experience with us. Please visit us again soon!
I organized a 50th surprise dinner at Romeos. the food was amazing and the staff were very friendly. We sat on the patio and the view was fantastic! I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Kamloops. We stayed at the hotel also, and it was really nice!
Thank you for choosing ROMEOs as your birthday dinner destination! We are very happy to hear that you and your group enjoyed your meals on the patio.
We were very pleased with Romeo’s kitchen. Food/service/ ambience were all very good.
Thank you for the great review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your meals with us and do hope you will visit us again soon.
Only a bit noisy because of a room full of women due to play we were attending.
My wife and I wanted to go out to dinner before the symphony and i was very happy to be able to make a reservation at the last minute. Despite it being very crowded, the service was very good and the meal came quite quickly.
Thank you for choosing to come to ROMEOs before the Symphony show. It's so nice to dine here when all you have to do is venture downstairs for the main event!
Good food in a nice setting. Large noisy group came in at the end of our dinner that made conversation difficult, but otherwise a positive experience.
We are very happy to hear that you had such a great experience with us! We do hope that you will dine with us again soon.
I really like having dinner and the play in the same building.
We agree! It is so nice to be able to eat dinner, then just make your way down the stairs to watch the show.
This is our go to restaurant. We had some friends in from Ottawa and they jus lived it!
Wow! Thank you for the great review. We are so happy to hear that you have chosen ROMEOs as your go to destination in Kamloops!
Friends celebrating a birthday with dinner and a concert
Our lunch experience was very good, service was excellent and the atmosphere was nice. I would recommend your establishment to my friends. The food was excellent as well and we were all satisfied with our experience.
Thank you very much for recommending us to your friends! We hope we will see you all again soon.
