Ordered wagu steak with prawn side. Prawns were not very good. Ate 1 and left the rest untouched. Waitress took plate away and didn’t ask why they were all left still. If someone paid for a side dish and didn’t eat it one should ask the question

Food was too salty for my liking.
The restaurant was very noisy - understood it was New Years Eve however it has always been a bit noisy. Small wonder there is no absorbing materials etc on the ceiling or walls. Overall we still enjoyed ourselves.

Personally not the hugest fan of the decor but that’s just my personal preference.
Service was great! Attentive but not over bearing.

Thanks for a lovely evening

The music was not to our taste and was to loud. We ordered the calamari and couldn't eat it as it was to salty and overcooked. We also had the prawn and lobster pasta and the prawns were shrimp and the lobster was scarce. It was not a very satisfying experience :(

We go to S&L every year for birthdays and anniversary. Normally, we are very pleased with the food and service. However, tonight my wife's experience was less than ideal. She was looking forward to their carrot ravioli but the menu had not yet been updated for fall and was consequently unavailable. Instead, she ordered chicken, which they were out of, at 6:30! She then ordered the sirloin steak which turned out to be a baseball cut that was very dry and had grissel in it.

Our waitress, Vanessa was apologetic and deducted the steak from our bill. Although we were appreciative of that we would have been much happier if they would have had what we really wanted. We will put it down as an off night for S&L because we know they can be much better.

Very nice evening, and great food. Our server Kerry {sp?} was just the right amount of seriously helpful and friendly. If we had any misgivings at all, it would be the level of ambient sound, but we'd write that off to us being old fogeys. The entrees were melt in your mouth good, and we especially enjoyed the Raspberry Rhubarb Crumble; or was it Strawberry? Whatever, It was delicious!
As a personal plus, my pint of Guinness was close to room temperature, with a proper head on it, just the way I like it served.

The only thing good about our experience was the brussel sprouts (they are amazing!) our food took over an hour and we were there before it was busy. We have a party of four and two dishes came and the other two came ten minutes after. The server was not apologetic and just kept avoiding eye contact instead of talking to us about the delay.
Food was mediocre at best for the cost.

Service was subpar, waitress brought the wrong beers to the table, took forever to take our orders. Food took 45 min to get to the table. The burgers my friends ordered were great, however, I had the ahi tuna poke bowl and that was abysmal. The tuna tasted old and fishy, salad was soaked in dressing and the edamame was heavily over cooked. We were late for a concert, due to the long wait time, and I choked it down so we could make the first artist. Todays meal was unfortunate because the last experience at this location was great.

We were at the Abbotsford location to celebrate my July birthday. S&L’s offer of a free entree was much appreciated. We look forward to returning for our anniversary in October.

Third visit in last 2 months every time appetizers come a minute before the meal end up with cold entree’s and staff that is indifferent. I will save the aggravation next time and go to Cactus Club

The scallops are absolutely amazing. My only complaint about service is that I asked for ice and got a mostly melted glass of ice water.

I ordered the S+L cheeseburger and it was unacceptable for a burger at over $15. The bun was so squished it literally looked like a McDonald's Cheeseburger. I was hoping for a good burger, but it literally had only red onions, iceberg lettuce, and cheese. I complained and the waitress just sort of stared and me and told me to let her know, and then disappeared until we finished.

The staff were excellent and the décor was fun and casual, but the food was just ok, which is fine for a burger at white spot, but for a $50 steak, you expect something a little better

Every thing was good but my steak was medium well when I asked for medium. Still very good but I wasn’t really complaining just wanted the kitchen to know. Manager gave us a really nice dessert for that. Will still be a happy customer next time I go!
