Went here on a Saturday night in the early evening and it was SUPER loud. I'd recommend this place if you're about to go on a night out and drink, but not really a nice dining experience with family. Food was a hit or miss.

Food was good, service was below poor. For the price of the meal, we were expecting excellent food and excellent service. The food didn't come out together, there was lack of urgency when we pointed out that we would like to eat together, but we were waiting on the last few meals to be served (took about 40 minutes from when the 1st plate was served to our table to the last). The manager John P, was not particularly helpful either once we explained the situation to him, in fact, once we let him know, he never once returned to our table to apologize. I was extremely disappointed and will not be returning.

I personally think this restaurant should deserve an upgrade in the Chef department. Dishes by name could have a lot of potential, but by execution were lacking. Noticeable are the mixed drink ideas, but also here the bartender didn't get two mixes consistent, and the wait time was huge.

For the owner having spend millions of dollar on the interior (hand painted walls) missing the boat of food and drink quality is misunderstanding the culinary opportunity here.

Upon arrival, they informed us that they didn’t have a table for us so they sat us at a “bottle service” table. No room to place the food, therefore we had to put all our plates on our laps. They didn’t provide us with utensils nor napkins; our waitress checked on us twice but only with the person at the far end. Trying to grab her attention for drinks and dinning essentials was extremely difficult and inconvenient. By far, the worst dinning experience I’ve ever had.

Terrible service.
Had a reservation for two tables at 7:15 and 7:30 pm. The first table was seated at 7:45 pm and the second at 8:30 pm. Friends were not happy that we had to wait an hour for a table, with a reservation. The excuse was given that no table was available.

Service was pretty awful as well. They got many orders wrong. They brought out sometimes incorrect orders or didn’t bring out the correct orders at all.

All the reviews about the music being too loud are correct. It was hard for me to talk to the person sitting one foot away from me.

Leonard the manager tried his best to make up for the mistakes of his staff, but unfortunately one person can not overcome all the issues.

Stay away from the province of you wish to have a conversation, or eat food, or sit down.

Had to wait in the front lobby for approximately 20 minutes as there was no host to receive us. Service at the table with sporadic at best. Clearly a casino does not make for a great dining venue with respect to attentive service. Food was subpar for the most part and the best items were mediocre. The cocktails were also terrible and expensive. I will never be going here again.

and the selection is meager. The service is slow. The food is all asian. We will not return.

My girlfriends and I came here for dinner on a Friday night. The place was not as busy. I do have to compliment the atmosphere and decor. Restaurant was super clean. The food was a different story.
Most of us ordered from the STARTER menu:
Ahi Tuna-one of the better menu items. Little chunks of Ahi (could be better) but we ate it anyway because we were super hungry. We specifically asked for avocado on the side because on of my friends was allergic. I think our waiter, Axel forgot about it. We did remind him and he apoligized.
Pork Belly Bao-2 pieces..very disappointing. It was super dry. At least add some shredded scallions and hoisin sauce.
Calimari-nothing special. Typical like any restaurant that serves it.
Tempura Battered Green Beans. Nothing special.
Brussel Sprouts-undercooked. My friend asked if he can take it back to recook. Came back super spicy. We did not ask to add chili/jalapeno.
Fries-Dry with little pieces of charsiu. The sunny side egg was overcooked. Fries tasted stale.
Dessert: My friend specifically asked waiter for a lava cake. Instead he gave us what he called Chocolate Terrine (chocolate ice cream with a rectangular piece of dark chocolate mousse). Not what she had in mind but she took it anyway. Waiter had no idea what was a chocolate lava cake.
Birthday dessert. -Matcha green cheesecake. Nothing special..a bit too sweet.
Bottle service-The wine we picked was delicious but our waiter had no idea how to open a bottle. We could have done that for him in an instant.
Overall-Bill came out to be about $212 for the 4 of us. So not worth it for the quality and presentation of the food.
Would I return again? probably not.


Thanks

We had dinner here 2 nights this week and had 2 different experiences. Food is very tasty and the service on Sunday night was superior to what we experienced on Tuesday night. We had a new waiter on Tuesday who needed a little more training. The calamari is fabulous.

Very disappointed with the vegetarian options. Only a few side dishes were specific for vegetarian diners and those offered no variety. When we requested our server ask the chef to make something with flavor and variety, he returned with a bland plate of steamed vegetables. Perhaps he misunderstood the request or did not relay it to the kitchen. Regardless our vegetarian diner was less then thrilled with the experience.

Service was excellent, but the food didn't measure up. Salt & Pepper pork chop wasn't very salty or spicy and the tempura was a little soggy. KFC wings needed to be crispier on the outside.

Most of the dishes we ordered were unexpectedly spicy and sweet. Sweet-and-Spicy food lovers may be able to appreciate this restaurant. The Chow Fun was kind of tasteless, we should have avoided it. The portion of the dishes were small to average. You may need to order extra dishes if you are hungry.

The "background" music was very loud. The services were great.

We had quite a few dishes however some dishes were really salty and the steak was dry. We asked for A1 sauce but none were available. Told the server and nothing was done about it. A place to eat if you were tired of gambling but I would not recommend it. For a $300 bill, I would expect more.
