    This is one of our go to places and if we didn’t know what it is normally we would not return. The restaurant was empty but it took over an hour and 15 minutes for our meal (apples took 45 min). Some was hot some cold. The waitress was kind enough to stand and wait for me to take the orange peel out of my water glass rather than bring a clean one. Staff seemed more focused on setting up for a large table than us. The birthday cookie for my daughter was a nice treat, however it was half cooked. Honestly…hoping this is COVID challenges but we have been coming for years and this was a disappointment.

    Like any restaurant, the Italian has changed over the past year or so. Portions are not as plentiful, and sauces are very minimal on the pasta. I have Vongole and before you would receive at least 8-10 clams in shells and many clams unshelled throughout. My meal only had 4 clams in shells and I could only count maybe 5 unshelled in my pasta dish. Sauce is extremely mimimal and was the same on my husband's spaghetti and meatballs dish. We actually left a bit hungry as the portions are way smaller. Will we be back? - I am probably thinking no at this point.

    It was busy at The Italian Osteria & Cheese Bar probably because it was Father’s Day. We had a reservation but we had to wait for about 15 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. I think our server was very new to her job as a server. She was trying very hard and part of the problem was not her fault. Even though we had an early dinner reservation time the restaurant had run out of some food and drink items. One of them being, garlic bread. You would have thought that they would have more than enough. The server had to go back and forth from the kitchen to confirm if they had certain items. She was very apologetic. She unfortunately served us a frozen can of beer and it leaked all over the table and start to puddle on the floor before we noticed and were able to get some Maputo soak it up. She took it away and brought us another one. At the end of the meal she took both our drinks off the bill without being asked. It was a nice surprise. The reason I think she was very new is that she also announced everything that she was doing. Whether it was bringing specific cutlery for our meal or taking away a plate she tended to tell us what she was doing. :) We found her to be quite cute and we gave her a decent tip to hopefully encourage her to keep working on improving her serving skills. I have a feeling that the restaurant doesn’t provide very much quality training. Serving people is a difficult job and it shouldn’t be complicated by not having item on the menu. Now, a bit about the food. My father’s dish, Alfredo with chicken, was lacking in flavour and overly salty. My dish, which I have enjoyed at this restaurant in the past was not nearly as good as before. It had enough flavour but it was also quite salty. We each ordered a dish of gelato for desert. We both received a very tiny scoop. Perhaps they were concerned that they were going to run out of gelato as well. We most likely will not be back to this restaurant.

    We would definitely give it another try because we went on Fathers Day and it wasn't the best experience. Our pizza arrived semi cold/warm for my son and I, but my husbands pasta dish was hot. So that means that the kitchen must have been waiting for the pasta dish before sending out the pizza and the pizza was too cold. So timing between the pizza oven staff and regular staff needs to be better. Our server was very kind and great. The ambiance- love it. The appetizers were hot and really great! Overall, we would try again on not such a busy night.

    Last night at the Osteria was fun; our server Miranda was really excellent in every way. The young folks at the host station needed just a little more coaching in customer communication. Thank you for alcohol free drink options! The pasta sauces were delicious and so were several items on the antipasto platter but the bread sticks tasted stale and the platter was overpriced. Looking forward to trying a pizza next time.

We own 4 Italian restaurants but we love coming here because you guys have different stuff on your menu than what we have. The service is always great as well. Thank you!

    Service was attentive, but the restaurant was SO LOUD! You had to yell to have a conversation. The food was mostly good but the pasta was served cold, again, just like every other time. The new truffle risotto is fantastic.

    Way too loud for a romantic date. No bread served before dinner. No bread available to be served with pasta dinner. I requested bread instead of salad, nope. Pasta came before the salads. Would recommend only for a "pub night, party-type scene" for beer and pizza maybe but not for a nice dinner out.

    I usually enjoy eating at this jrg group restaurant. Food wasn’t as good this time. Waitress was pleasant but we waited a long time but we were seated quickly though we had reservations. First time ever someone came with pepper to the table. Maybe it’s because there were larger parties there.

    Disappointed that we came with a gift card we had received as a gift. The waitress told us if we didn't KNOW the value of the g.c. (Which we did not) then we'd have to wait for the manager to make a phone call and figure out the value. She also gave us the option to not use it, go home, figure it out ourselves and come back to use it next time. It put a damper on the end of our dinner - we had to wait for the manager and it was an awkward end to the night. Figured if Joseph Richards sells us the card - they should have a better system in place to figure out the value of their cards.

    The Italian Osteria & Cheese BarResponded on June 16, 2022We are so sorry to hear this, we have many options to be able to check the balance of a gift card, so we are so sorry to hear that you were not able to use this card at your visit. Please know that we will be following up with the team right away to ensure that all staff are aware on how to check the balance. Thank you for your patience and understanding through this process, we truly hope to see you again soon! Morgan M - Guest Relations

    Noise level very high, i understand busy and vibrant, but had trouble just having a normal conversation at times. I have enjoyed this restaurant 4 times before. But this time it was really noticeable. I have no hearing impairments and no hearing aids. It was amazing stepping out onto a busy stree that seemed quite compared to inside.
