Very nice place for a business lunch food was overall good. Soup of the day wasn't so much that's why I gave it a 4 star. Everything else was very goos.

I was truly disappointed in the food. The menu made things sounds so wonderful but the food was blah. Overcooked and dry even the roasted sweet potatoes were bad. We were the only people in the restaurant and I can see why. Time for a new chef.

We had a reservation for dinner on New Years Eve. We arrived and it took over 5 minutes to be greeted by the hostess. Several employees walked by us and said nothing. Once the hostess greeted us, she told us it would be a few min while she set up the table. This took close to 10 minutes. She was not friendly and barely spoke to us. It appeared that the employees had no idea what was going on. With few patrons, the place seemed chaotic. Our server was polite, but we still had to get his attention several times when we needed something. Our drinks took a very long time and the water was never refilled. Several of us ordered burgers and the meat seemed like preformed frozen patties. It was edible, but not good. I think the restaurant just opened, but we will not give it a second chance.

The short ribs didn't taste like beef or pork, so not sure what it was. The ribs were very tough. Rib meat should be falling of the bone and crazy tasty when correctly prepared. It was neither.

Went there for breakfast. Made a reservation but it wasn’t crowded. The manager greeted us warmly, took our order, and served us cheerfully. Everything was prepared and served nicely. Service was attentive and ambiance quite nice. Would happily go there again for the breakfast buffet.

I made reservations on Open Table for 7:45 on Christmas. When we arrived we were told that they were closed and wouldn’t be seated. When I said I booked on Open Table he said he had just turned way someone else. He also said we should have used a different app. It was very disappointing after we had driven down there, parked, and walked two blocks in the cold only to be turned away.

Friends and I recently dined here as we wanted something easy pre-theatre. Everything else was booked full and I was able to reserve a table for 4 last minute. At 5pm it was pretty empty, and the staff pampered us. We ordered small plates & drinks, enjoyed a quiet atmosphere and arrived at the show unhurried. Exactly what we wanted!

Nice decor/design, great service, but unfortunately disappointing food quality.
The mushroom barley soup seems to have been an afterthought. For $7 a cup it had the same red vegetable base as the Manhattan clam chowder with a few mushroom slices and 1 or 2 pieces of barley added. The buffalo burger was priced at $14 but was served with an impressively thin patty of meat.
The $11 chicken gryo was a pita pocket with grilled chicken pieces that were quite dry and had little seasoning. Could not appreciate the citrus marinade advertised.
We won't be going back.

While my Salmon BLT was good, my sweet potato fries were undercooked. The poutine had at most 2 tablespoons of shredded beef on it. It was ok, but the gravy was very good. We asked for a cheese quesadilla for a child and it came with a lot of other items inside besides the cheese. Oh well we could have sent it back but decided it wasn't worth it. Our waiter wanted to be somewhere else..........

The service was quite good but the food was mediocre at best. I ordered the fish and chips and my wife ordered the grilled chicken gyro. The fish was actually pretty good, particularly with the lemon tartar sauce. The fries were mediocre; I understand there are lots of kinds of fries but the ones served here were relatively soft and thin while I prefer something more crispy. The chicken gyro my wife ordered was just plain terrible. The chicken was bland, as though it hadn't been seasoned or brined or anything prior to being cooked. Worst of all, the grill marks on the chicken were burned into the meat so badly that the charred portions of the meat were incredibly bitter; I insisted on tasting it when she complained and I could smell the char before I even brought the piece of chicken to my mouth. She had to eat around or cut off the burned portions.

This could be a nice enough place to hang out for a drink; the atmosphere is nice and the service was very friendly and attentive, but I wouldn't eat here again. We were visiting from out of state and the food everywhere else we ate was so much better than here.

When here for our Anniversary, one of the best place we have gone. Only 2 block of the 16th street mall. I had a buffalo steak, best prepared and tasting buffalo I have ever had, and one of the best overall steaks I have ever had.

We booked a table for 8 here before a show at the Bellco Theatre at the Convention Center. I was a little surprised at how uncrowded it was on a Saturday night, but it worked out quite well for us, as the service was attentive but unobtrusive.
We all enjoyed our meals, though nobody was exclaiming how it was the best they'd ever had. My flatbread/pizza was just the right size, and pretty tasty.
I'd happily come back here before another show -- the location is great for the Convention Center!

This place was recommended to me by a friend. I got the steak and was less than impressed. No flavor, cooked how I wanted but burnt on the exterior and I hate that...veggies were way too peppery. Our server was training a new guy and the Friday night rush started and I saw him running around. I felt bad calling him back to ask for something different. We scrapped dinner (got some to go boxes) and asked for dessert...the key lime pie had no flavor. I was very underwhelmed.
I enjoyed the wine and the good service despite my dissapointment in the food.
The reason I gave this place a 3 over all is that the salads seemed go be a crowd favorite so I may have gotten the wrong thing. I'm not sure ill be back because salads are not my thing...but they looked amazing. I feel like I wasted 85$. Lesson learned.

Our group of seven was seated in a quiet spot in this large restaurant and cheerfully waited on with great attention to detail. Our meals were tasty and fresh, and the wine and bar menu made it easy to find a nice wine or other drinks--good selection of whiskey, especially.

I was very disappointed in the business meeting meal I attended this week. There was not enough food for all attendees at the table. The salmon and chicken were over cooked and the salad was extremely difficult to eat.


The ambiance was very cool and I wanted this to be a great eating experience.

We had a nice meal here before a concert. It was nearly empty (6:30 on a Saturday night) and I don't really know why. The food was good and not overly pricey or anything. Maybe it was busy later.

I didn't realize Territory was in the lobby of the Hilton. I chose it, as it was close to our event at Ellie Caulkins Theatre. We were late to arrive due to heavy traffic, but they were fine and it was not crowded. We enjoyed very attentive service, from the bar and from the restaurant. I ordered the bison sliders, which were good. I probably should have ordered a sandwich. My husband ordered the fish and chips, which were excellent. Good fish, hand battered and served with hearty potato wedges. I wish we had more of that. I think they were trying hard to improve their service and food reputation. We would return and order burgers or their bison reuben, which they were out of. Good hearty American fare, attentive service, all good!

We were a group of six having dinner before a symphony concert. Our reservation was for 5:45 and the place was not crowded. It was quiet which we all appreciated. Our server was good and he was able to separate out our bill by couples which we also appreciated. The menu was varied and the food except for the mushroom soup was very good and well prepared. It's close location to the Performing Arts complex was very handy and was a major reason that we chose to eat there.

Came here before our event at the Bellco Theatre. They had a party going on at the bar that took up ALL the servers time and attention; if that wasn't going on our server would have been better. However, the food was extremely disappointing. Got the fish and chips, the fish didn't seem frozen prior but the batter was burnt and not flavorful and the "chips" were huge huge wedges of potatoes that were completely flavorless (and no seasoning on them). Then I got some crème brulee to help fill the whole, it was advertised as vanilla with berries on top but it came out with this crunchy stuff in it (maybe toffee?) and giant thing of whipped cream on top (which I super do not care for) - and the jar they put it in, was extremely hard to scrape out all the remnants of the brulee. It was fun going out with my husband but this place was a HUGE disappointment.

My lady and I looked up a local restaurant to have Father's Day dinner. Territory looked really nice on Google and the menu wasn't just the same old thing you have seen everywhere else, so we decided to try it out. When we arrived it was not busy at all, we actually scored some parking just outside their patio on the street. We sat down and ordered our drinks, the service was very timely. The appetizer is where is started, we asked for 1 cheese substitute because my lady is pregnant and can't have soft cheeses. The flatbread came with both cheeses on it. Took it anyway picked off what we could see and ordered dinner. Understandably they were going through a menu switch so some items weren't available. I ordered a burger medium, and the first one was over cooked, the bun was stale and was missing ingredients the menu read came on the burger. Sent it back, received another burger 16 min later. By now I'm half full on fries, the second one was just as bad but had all the ingredients. The manager barely made a pass by the table to speak with us about our experience. We received a free dessert from our server. Overall it wasn't a great experience for what it cost even with the burger taken off. Would not recommend or return

I was very disappointed. The online menu and info made it very inviting, and as a visitor to your city, that was all we could go on.
The customer service was Awful.
Server not familiar with menu, or bar beverages. Was rude and unkept. We left after 20 minutes if being ignored and argued with. He stood at bar doing I don't know what, no one appeared to be interested in their job. Only 3 tables occupied so the "busy/everyone came at once" excuse was inappropriate.
We went back to our hotel and concierge said " I would never recommend there.
I gave

We decided to try this place out for Happy Hour and an early dinner since it was on the way to the theater. I looked up their website and it seemed they had a few interesting vegetarian food items and some good drink options for for HH. The server/hostess was by herself handling all the guests and we had to ask to be helped, to get a menu and then to get water and place our order. She didn't know what drinks were on the HH menu that were listed in the online menu and we got charged $14.00 for a drink that should've been $4.00 for the liquor and then an upcharge for martini. We didn't balk at it because the food was good and everything else was reasonably priced- we shared the HH flatbread pizza and then I had a Kale & Quinoa salad while my husband had the caesar salad (substituting blue cheese dressing). Salads were large and tasty and the flatbread was really good, as well. We ordered house wine and melon mule that were pretty good. All in all, I would try it again for a second opinion.
