    I loved everything about Starbelly. The food was on point. Our table of 4 shared everything so we could taste more. 3 starters and 4 entrees. We had gnocchi, risotto, crispy chicken sandwich, Cajun coated steak with potatoes and asparagus, bacon wrapped date, pork belly with grits and the tartare.

    The food options are simple, but very well done. We tried the bacon-wrapped dates for starters. I'd never had them before, but they were warm and savoury. That, paired with a nice 9 oz glass of wine and the prawns, was a perfect start. I had the fried chicken sandwich with a side salad, which was perfection. This place always satisfies.

    Great everything. Good was amazing. Hostess was quick to get us to our table. Andrea (I think!) was our server, she was the perfect amount of attentive. Never let our waters go empty. Our appetizer and mains were perfectly timed. And she was so kind, friendly, and stunning!

    Had a lovely Mother's Day dinner here with a family of 5 (all adults). The menu is fairly short, but there were easily enough choices to satisfy everyone. Prawn curry bowl, chcken cacciatore, steak sandwiches, burger... yum. Love the ambience of this place with its open modern concept. The service is always friendly and efficient. We'll be back...

    Had very poor service. Server forgot to ask kitchen multiple questions we requested. Food, & especially drinks, were very slow. She left screw cap on wine bottle when bringing 2nd bottle to table & never returned to refill glasses. She emptied 1st bottle into a glass & topped up with 2nd bottle. She didn’t clear empty/used glasses. She left drink serving tray on bench beside the table beside us for over 20 minutes. Table on other side also appeared to have issues with the same server. She wasn’t tipped very well for her poor service & then came back to awkwardly confront the table about it but had no insight into her poor service.

    Very tasty food is why you come here. Menu entree's and wine alternatives are limited. What is here is very good. We had the unfortunate need to eat takeout from the hospital area. Dined in to. We tried a lot of local places. This was a favourite. Menu likes are the bacon wraped figs, the short rib pasta ragu, mushroom risoto and the short rib entree. An open kitchen layout ensures plenty of activity and some noise to. Takeout orders are ready on time.

    I think the kitchen was a little backed up this evening. Our food arrived only warm after about an hour of waiting and my hubbys salmon was not cooked through. They did correct his meal but it took another 20 minutes to get it. We would eat here again tho as we’ve had meals before that were excellent.

    We recently tried Starbelly for the first time, based on a recommendation. Our server, Annie H was excellent and very attentive. She knew the menu very well and was able to respond to our questions without hesitation. The food was extremely good and the menu was also nicely varied, that made it difficult to make our selections. We will go back for sure, and will recommend it to our friends.

    I keep hearing rave reviews about the food - it was good, but nothing that blew me away. I ordered the Starbelly burger and it was good, but not excellent. Nothing wrong at all, but just wasn't the 5-star experience I was expecting.

    We love the staff, the service and the food but the music was so so loud we could not hear each other talk - we asked to have it lowered and they did but shortly after it was back again. The food was as always wonderful but after going to many restaurants since our move here we find the wine overpriced in comparison to some very good restaurants of the same level. Have 2 burgers and one scoop of ice cream and 2 glasses of the small glass of wine and one beer and spending $100.00 is for us too much even though to us they are the best burgers ever....we could do without the alcohol but for me it is part of the dining experience. I hate saying this because we love the people there!

    When eating a meal in a restaurant with family or friends, it is understood that good food and pleasant conversation should go together. Therefore, loud and energetic music should not be played, as it interferes with conversation. That being said, Starbelly has awesome food and friendly service.

    Had a wonderful dinner at Starbelly’s last night with a few friends. The cocktails and wine were fantastic and the food and service were amazing. We had one small issue with how my steak was cooked. I was fine to eat it as it was (and it was still delicious) . The manager went over and above in dealing with this. We were beyond impressed and will definitely be back. Last thing to mention, we shared 3 different desserts (pannacotta, sticky toffee pudding, doughnut) which were also top notch.
