Was first seated at an out of the way table, didn’t feel it was in the restaurant main area. Asked for a table more in the midst of ambiance and were quickly seated at another table.
Staff was nice, food yummy- nice experience.

Loved the new updated renovation - overall food was very good but our steak had a big piece of gristle in the middle. Our lovely server gave a $25 gift certificate for future meal

When S&L first opened in Langley I tried it and unfortunately wasn’t impressed. I’ve gone back a few times for lunch and have had great food and service. Last night I decided to try the S Surrey location and was awesomely impressed!! Amanda, our waitress was great and attentive. The Brussels appy was perfect and my sablefish/ scallops were perfect! My wife’s strip loin steak was good, but not great (she likes hers well done, which is NOT how you eat a steak). All in all, the meal and experience was perfect!!

The Ambiance was great! But thats the only good thing about our experience there. The food was poorly made; flavourful wise and plating. I got the Chicken Bowl, the sauce on the chicken was so salty almost inedible, rice was way overcooked and poorly seasoned and the little salad it came with was so wilted i couldn’t even eat it. Friend one got the vegetarian mac and cheese, it did not look appetizing at all, it was over sauced (it was quite literally all over the plate) and the sauce was so bland the pasta was also overcooked, overall not a well thought out dish. Friend two got the roll trio, but they were out of the lobster roll so she got 2 of the BLT rolls instead and a crab roll, thankfully she got this plate with truffle fries because it was the only thing that was good in her plate, the BLT had a thick cut bacon, it was wayyy overcooked to the point where it was almost as hard as rock it also had half of a tomato that looks like its about to go bad and wilted lettuce, the crab cake roll was just disappointing, a store bought crab cake would be better than it, the whole plate looks like its made by a child, the rolls was not even toasted. Friend 3 got the master chicken, KFC chicken would be a 10/10 compared to this dish, the only good thing in this plate was the corn, the mashes potato was dry and gritty, almost like it was not seasoned at all, the chicken itself was kind of crispy and was beyond bland, 2 of the 3 pieces were also dry. Overall our experience here was not great, the ambiance was amazing, our server was nice, she offered us a free dessert because she could tell that we did not enjoy the food. Whoever the chef here seriously needs to make some changes in the menu or atleast taste the food that comes out of their kitchen. I would rate this experience a 5/10 solely because of its ambiance. Food wise, for plates upwards of $20 they need to improve the flavour, plating, and overall taste, you’re better off getting McDonalds in my opinion.

Service has been slow past few visits.

Renovations are nice.

Some good items disappointing. Gnocchi was served pretty much raw dough. Not good at all.

everything was good until the last minute. I ordered food to go and I specified the vegetarian and to hold back on the bacon in the sprouts and the gnocchi, they added bacon to the gnocchi and forgot the sprouts altogether and it is frustrating when you get home that the food for your mum was half missing and the waiting took so long that dad had his toast
they need to check the bag against order and read back order to the customer against the bag before allowing us to leave
wont stop me coming again as i like to support local and hopefully next time it will be ok though mum wont eat the gnocchi again as she took a bite had bacon on it and she does not eat meat for religious reasons

Greetings good/ service great / Our drinks were very nice. I might choose differently next time on a return visit but part of my selection was fabulous. My daughter & S-I-L thoroughly enjoyed their choices.
One of the desserts was really delicious but the other was okay.

Loved the winter decor, not crazy about the seating. Booth tables looked really high for us short people.
We ordered an appy of pull apart bread that tasted like rust or fish… it was created in an iron skillet that must have either not been cured or washed properly .
I ordered the seafood chop chop salad which sounded amazing but what I got was a cheap salad of iceberg lettuce and ok seafood. The scallop dog was abit soggy and didn’t taste like a corn dog should. This was an extremely disappointing dish, my friends ordered the wagyu beef dip and the chicken bowl, which were really good.
I would come again but would try other dishes.

First date at S&L. Noisy but expected that Saturday night. Waitress was friendly,professional,and attentive. Crab cake appetizer was ok and fun to share.
Date had Halibut and only ate half of it .” Not quite right “ she said. Fish was cold and over cooked. Vegetables were under cooked . She only ate half. I had steak and Lobster . Broccoli was awesome, hard to goof up mashed potatoes, New York steak was more like round. $50 and Toughest restaurant steak I’ve ever had. $19 for lobster tail . Super small. Not a lot bigger than A jumbo prawn . Nice place , nice people, good vibe. Too bad about the food . Unfortunate and disappointed.
