We were celebrating my son's girlfriends completion of law school with a girls' weekend in Abbotsford. Covid -19 policies were visible and completely in place. We felt comfortable and safe. Our hostess and server were friendly and their service exceptional. The food was absolutely outstanding not only in taste but also presentation. Atmosphere was cozy and it was easy to talk. It was our first time visiting Abbotsford. We will be back again. Thank you for making our celebration perfect!!!!

I had made an outdoor dining request as indicated on the app. Once we arrived we were told our request could not be accommodated as they didn’t know why the option to book their outdoor space was even permitted?!? And, that it is a first come, first serve availability only. We asked how long of a wait (we have 2 young kids and were there for my birthday dinner) We stayed despite the inconvenience however the service was neither great or memorable. No effort to engage in conversation or make us feel welcome or that we were even being served. Food was ok but I will not be going back to S+L as this has been the experience at the Abbotsford location each time we have gone 5x at least before this visit.

The steak was on the chewy side. Sides tasted awesome but was not enough to fill a Child. Service was great. Nice place to visit with friends. Had a ceaser and it came in a oversized shot glass. I don't mind paying a premium but when I leave the restaurant .. i should be full.

Made the reservation and requested a booth on the patio. Upon arrival, they had no idea of the reservation and did not save a booth on the patio. As a result, we had to sit inside. We were the only table inside the entire restaurant. Every other table was empty. Approximately 15 minutes into our visit, the hostess phoned me to see if I was coming from my reservation despite the fact that I’d already been there for 20 minutes and was already having appetizers. Was quite disappointed at the level of organization and readiness considering we made the reservation days in advance. Thank you.

It was all good except the menu. Once I finally got the menu downloaded I could not enlarge it. The waitress brought me a meal menu but they did not have a paper drink menu. Might I suggest a laminated copy of the drink menu that could be cleaned after each use.

There was a slight mix-up with our order, and the waitress went above and beyond to make it up to us. Essentially we went from sharing a meal to have two full plates of food. Food tasted great and we enjoyed the atmosphere.

The best steak in town and eating outside reduces the noise enough for us middle aged folks to enjoy a nice meal out.

I made reservations on Thursday, we arrived 10 mins early and were seated right away. Our server G was fantastic, however the people sitting beside us were very loud, rude and obnoxious, which took some of the pleasantness from the experience. The food was amazing except both steaks were over cooked, I asked for medium rare and it was well done(still delicious) and my girlfriend asked for medium rare and hers was medium bordering on medium well. We will definitely return for another try. All the appies and side were amazing and I highly recommend the wine truffle jus!

We went there March 16 to celebrate my husband's birthday and even mentioned this on our dinner reservations and nothing was mentioned when we came in and from our server. We waited for awhile at the door to be seated as there was no one at the door to greet us then someone noticed us finally. We get that the restaurant is affected by Covid 19. Our server hardly smiled and was not very pleasant at all. We were seated to a table next to other guests and was asked to move. Throughout the dinner, our server did not look happy at all or pleasant, almost like she did not want to be there. Overall, not a very good experience. Food was ok. The whole restaurant had a very "dismal" or depressing atmosphere,

The experience at S&L is always nothing less than stellar. From the reservation to the service and, of course, the absolutely amazing flavours in the menu, the “restaurant meal” becomes a pampering experience. Spoiled! Well done JRG!!

Our meals were delicious however the amount you get vs what you pay is not balanced. The harvest chicken should be a bigger serving for what you pay in our opinion. But otherwise it was enjoyable.

Ordered the sablefish. It was completely tasteless. Very disappointed considering it was a $42 piece of fish. And very small. I’ve eaten here before and will go back again. But I’ll never order the sablefish again, that’s for sure.

Food presentation was bad. Steak was medium rear when it was supposed to be medium well, and the meat is not AAA. Sautés mushroom and mashed potatoes looked like instant, not from scratch. Anyhow, I expected it to be be between Cactus and The Keg but it fell really short. Hopefully it would be different next time.
