State & Main Kitchen + Bar - Hamilton
Its always a great experience at this location. Food and atmosphere is great. Always very friendly service, but our table was a bit restless because entres took almost an hour from the time of ordering to get to the table. It might have been busy in the kitchen and we understand this sometimes happens.
Great friendly service ..efficient & our server knew his stuff when it came to ingredients..as a celiac i was put at ease that i would have nothing to worry about & the risks were made clear without making me feel bad about having celiac ..only negative is that there is no desert options for gfree ..not cool ..there are plenty of options out there that are easy to prepare creme brulee ..jello ..icecream ..flourless choc cake ..even m& m has a tuxedo cake you should have on hand for allergy ootions
The food is always great and so many options for vegetarians. And the wait staff are always so friendly and helpful! One of my favourite spots for sure.
State & Main has a huge menu to choose from and the food is excellent. Our waitress was wonderful and attentive. Food arrived quickly and was fresh tasting.
Food was tasty and came out in a timely manner. The service was great from start to finish. We didn’t feel rushed at all.
Great service and good food.The sprouts are awesome!
Would recommend State and Main. But would advise not to order their State Drinks. |Each of us ordered and no one enjoyed their drink. Only downfall to our visit
This was recommended to me but it was so so! The food was ok, the service was great! Our table was small and stuck against a wall. When I come from out of town I expect abit of a WOW which this restaurant was lacking!!
Food is really good and Thursday night half price wine is a no brainer. Great atmosphere for a group of friends
Good. You need to introduce a birthday dessert that is complimentary
Everything was to our satisfaction except when the waitress asked if we wanted any alcoholic beverages before taking our order and 1 person responded no she left and did not inquire with anyone else as to what our preference was. There were a couple of us who had reviewed the wine list and were ready to order
We waited nearly an hour to receive our food after ordering. Other tables of patrons who arrived 20 mins after us received their food prior to us. We were told there was some problem in the kitchen. However the manager came over to apologize and offered us a discount on our meal and free desserts. This gesture goes a long way with me and for that reason I would not only recommend this restaurant but I would return. I realize s**t happens but it's when someone owns up to it and makes it better that brings people back.
Great place and good food. Love those Brussels sprouts. Friendly wait staff.
We were seated quickly and greeted by our waitress who was very friendly and got our drinks quickly. Food was ok but the Hollywood Bowl was not what I was expecting based on the menu description. Not as much protein as you would think for an entree. Overall it was pleasant and I will go back to try something different.
Open Table overbooked the restaurant by 5 reservations by the time we arrived and the said not receive ours. I even showed the app and verified the date, time and address. The were really good about it and fit us in. However they mentioned this happens frequently. Perhaps Open Table should look into this.
Food was steaming hot, atmosphere incredible and the wait staff was on the ball. We’ve been a few times for date nights and has never been disappointed.
made a reservation late afternoon as we knew we would be passing by Hamilton area made a reservation for 730pm on open table. chose to sit in dining area low tables. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:20pm and were told by the gal at the front desk that she was told by "someone" that we had cancelled. I said well that is us right there on your ipad and she said she had marked us as cancelled. She said no worries ill get you a table. we were seated in the high tables in a bar section. it was very loud and not the greatest experience. the food however was very good but there was a part or something in the table behind us so although my husband and I were right across from each other we could not have a conversation and actually hear each other.
I think had we been seated in the area we reserved it may have been another experience. we also had the ultimate dining car with the bonus card, we were told that the restaurant doesn't offer any specials wit the ultimate dining card bonus card, only to find out when we got home they actually do.
The food however was very good, I think if they get their service up to par may get more returning guests
Overall good food, decent prices. Food was a little slow arriving, about 45 minutes from order to table
I’ve noticed after my last couple of visits that the portions have been cut with their meals. Today was an even bigger disappointment when my food came out room temperature. I usually have a great experience here, but I’m wondering if new management has taken over because things have changed.
Holly our waitress was great! Excellent food selection, will be eating there again.
We had a nice time. Holly was our server and she was very pleasant. We really enjoyed ourselves. The sweet potato fries were great!
Food was great, waitress was fantastic (think her name was Gina...?) 6:00pm on Valentine’s Day. Seated at booth in bar where Dorothy is on the wall. Will be back!
We have be coming here since it opened and have never been disappointed! I have dietary restrictions and always have to make modifications and State and Main always gets it right! I love their chicken wrap and their chicken club. Hubby loves their Pacific Rim bowl (loaded with yummy stuff). The servers are very friendly and very accommodating! I highly recommend this place!
We had the Bang Bang Shrimp appetiser which was awesome! Really good portion size for sharing. Meal was good, I had fish tacos and my husband had a teriyaki bowl.
The noise level was a bit too much, couldn’t hear my friend very well.
Food was excellent and the value was good. We had made a reservation but when we arrived the table that they gave us was not very comfortable so they moved us to the bar area. This was fine but I thought that with a reservation we would have been given a nicer table. Server was excellent and the food was very good.
Must have been an off night . Usually good here . Food was cold and over cooked mush. Out of their house Red ale. Waitress was awesome and comped the bill. I will give this place a miss next time .
We have been coming here for a few years. Great staff, great food and cheerful atmosphere. Price are on par with most other bar and grill places. Definitely recommend!
arrived @510 1st in line, waited 10 min to be seated
asked for water with lemon, got the water
late arrival asked for water, and again when food came
asked for utensils after food arrived
ate about 3 tbsp of teriyaki rice bowl, just didn't like the flavour
This is the 4th time I have been here and it has never disappointed. Great food choices. Last time was a Thursday night and it was a little louder than I would have liked ....but it was Thursday night! Very busy, highly recommend a reservation.
It's my new favourite place for casual dining
State and Main is consistent with the food they have on the menu. Also, the wait staff are the best. They do everything right!
Dinner was exellent and the service was fast and friendly. A nice spot. Try the Brussels sprouts. Delicious. Good burgers too
Healthy salmon dinner from the autumn menu. Tasty although could have been hotter.
nice atmosphere, very good server, clean washrooms etc but I came for the food. Ordered the fish & chips, very disappointed, fish was way overcooked & almost cold, same for chips, I have fish one or two times a week so know it's all in the timing. Would have sent back for replacement but my guests would have been finished their lunch before I received it
Was very disappointed with the service and the food. We were a table of 4, one of us ordered fish tacos and wasn't sure it really was fish. My Thai salad wS extremely spicy, and overdown with mint. The drinks were not great, 2 girls said theirs tasted like dirty socks, mine was tasteless and I am unsure if there was any liquor in my drink. Desserts well? Not quite as described I am pretty sure the "key lime pie " got exchanged as it was a cheesecake with a tiny twist of lime peel on top. I have been here before a few times and always thought it was good but with this visit not sure I will return.
There appeared to be only one waitress for the entire restaurant including the patio(Saturday lunchtime), wasn't a big issue since we were not in a rush. But if we were I would have walked out.
I found the portions to be on the small side, especially the fish taco's (Where's the fish?).
The prices are on the high side for what you get.
I won't be back based on all the above
My girlfriend and I ordered the Korean Fried Chicken, Brucschetta Chicken Fettuccine, and the Main burger with bacon and a side of jalapeno cheddar mashed potatoes and fries. For dessert, we shared a cheesecake with chocolate drizzle on top. The sides came with gravy and dill dip.
I would say that the food was great for its price, as it came in such large servings. Even so that the cheesecake was almost too much! The service was also great as our waitress kept on checking up on us to see if we were alright. Although, my girlfriend and I were waiting a while for our orders and to pay.
The only downside was our Korean Fried Chicken. It was quite tasty, however we didn't realize that most of it was cauliflower! I'd understand that a few pieces would be cauliflower along with the chicken but a good majority of our dish was just cauliflower.
Overall, State & Main was a nice experience and I would come here again! :)
We had a great lunch on the patio. The food was delicious and the service excellent . Tori our server
was great..very attentive give and welcoming.
Went in on our lunch break on a Sunday. Service was great, very quick. Girls were understanding we were on a time restraint and made us feel not rushed. Lovely lunch, lots of good for a reasonable price.
