    Our server was horrible. Didn’t come see us for 10 mins of being there, never got water refill, forgot to bring out our appetizer, didn’t get us cutlery until asked then had to ask for a steak knife, took forever to clear out plates….but she was apologetic, so ?

    I have eated at the Savoy several times and have always enjoyed my experience. Unfortunately this time the service and food were noticeably lacking. Apparently they were experiencing issues in the kitchen, and this certainly impacted the quality of the food and the service. The beef bourguignon was more like a piece of fatty roast beef with some mushroom gravy on top. This was accompanied by poorly cooked carrots and 1 piece of broccoli. The potatoes were at least good. The other meals in our party were of similar quallity. The main courses were not brought out together and from first to last dish served there was at least a 15 minute gap which is really unacceptable. I noticed other diners experiencing the same issue. The server was nice, but also forgot our drinks at one point. So all in all not a great Father's Day experience. Such a shame - I really hope they turn it around as I would like to go back, but after this experience I am very hesitant.

    Got reservation for two. We Were offered a table that was in a busy spot , while another table was unused we asked to be moved there . The hostess said no. Waited a few more mins no body came to the table , asked the hostess to be moved to that table again. She sad it was not possible because it was reserved . We were there first , at a table that we did not like .We waited more mins to see if anyone was coming and nobody showed up. Another table got free and we asked our server to be moved to that one. She said yes . The table got cleaned and we moved . Then a few seconds later the hostess came to sit three people at that table while the table we had asked to be moved to previously was still free! No body had come to use that table for 30 mins . She looked shocked we were at this new table . We said our server had agreed to move us there . The hostess then took the customers to the table we had asked for originally, instead of using the table we had just left. I don’t understand Why we were granted a reservation on a spot that was so inconvenient. Also why we were not given priority to move to another table since we were already there and had expressed our dislike. The food was ok. Fries were dry , overcooked . Our server was nice . Our get together got spoiled from the very beginning by the way the situation was handled by the hostess. I normally don’t complain but this situation was not acceptable.

    Beautiful spot but so disappointed - French brasserie with loud 90’s music playing! Sparkling wine was flat - asked to replace which they did. Server was definitely new and inexperienced but expect that in the current climate but on a Saturday night in westboro manager was no where to be found. Food was mostly tasteless - calamari and scallop appetizer over cooked. Garlic toast accompanying pasta burned. Lamb tasteless and drowned in a tasteless sauce. Would not recommend.

    There were menu items that were not available...for a not busy Wednesday night I found that unacceptable. One guest in our party ordered a salad with shrimp and they were not peeled ....unacceptable I ordered a Martini Vodka Dry Dirty and was charged $18?? I can understand supporting local Ontario Wines but you should have more of a selection of by the glass wines (besides ontario) Our waiter was nice and accommodating I have been to your establishment a number of times and I would have to say it has gone downhill!

    The food was good and the helpings were generous. Service was friendly but very slow, probably because of a staff shortage (only two servers were on duty). We had to wait at the door for a good four minutes before being shown a table. There was a long wait before our order was taken and only a slightly shorter wait for the food to arrive. The noise level was high, augmented by noise from the street, as the door was open. It might be an idea to keep the door closed when the restaurant is busy.

    The Savoy has been around for a number of years. It is starting to show its age. Ripped banquette; floor tiles that look like they need a good scrub. If you overlook that, it’s a great little spot. The server was friendly, but not instructive. The food was quite good. I had Eggs Benedict with Chirozo. Eggs were done perfectly. My friend had the Niçoise salad. Lots of smoked salmon and the salad fixings were plentiful. I am certain the pandemic has impacted The Savoy as it has many other restaurants, so there probably isn’t spare funds to do some minor repairs. I’d go back for sure.

    We love the Savoy. And frequent there often. We’ve never had an issue before last night. To start, they didn't have any of the curry for our vegetarian guest (which can happen so no biggie), but we were shut down for any substitutions or accommodations of that meal after the waitress talked about how amazing it was. Then our meals came out independently over a span of 10-15 mins which was really unpleasant with a party of 5 and as true polite Canadians, no one wanted to start until the last meal arrived. My husband had to get the manager to help us. Then one meal came without cutlery which delayed again, and unfortunately the evening left us with a really unfortunate feeling. The savoy has always been a welcoming spot, with a reliably good menu, and staff were always nice to us, that’s why we keep coming back - but the evening with our out of town guests was a bit of a bust. Understanding there could be new staff, new processes, short staffed or just an off night - this was a special night for us, and we’re unsure now, if/when we’ll be back.

    Waitress and front of house were very apologetic and helpful when the kitchen only prepared half the meals for our group of 7 people, so half our table ate 30-45 mins before the other half. Overall a friendly place with tasty food that was perfect for our family reunion dinner.

    Menu and ambience are great. Oysters were ok, a little dirty. And the tuna tartare was a little warm. I didn't mind it at first but I actually got Ill about an hour after eating. I'll never get raw seafood from this location again.

    Thank you. All was very good. I returned the next day with a different fiend and had French onion soup along with egg Benedict florentine. Both of our soups were of very poor quality and had burned something inside, We were not happy about it. We did not get much sympathy from our waiter , Thank you .

    This place/service is pathetic. I don’t normally write restaurant reviews but I am maddened by my recent experience that I feel I must. I was taking a close friend out to celebrate a milestone bday. She is physically challenged and insisted she take Para Transport to the restaurant…easier for her. She was slightly early and these jerks (they are jerks) at the restaurant made her stand for minutes to get her to our table. This is challenge for her. We only got the table once I got there and I had to move the chair / a very heavy table to make it just right for her. Not one server offered to help me adjust things to her liking/ease. Once we got our meal, there was no follow up, no water refill from the server. I asked to speak to the manager. Complete arrogant, rude man who didn’t care about anything I said and responded super sarcastically saying he would put a server by our table next time to make sure he was at our beck and call. I shot back and told him to “not be sarcastic” with me. He didn’t care. The service was just so poor, the response, utterly unsympathetic to my poor friend and the food, mediocre, don’t waste your time and money….and the tables are so insanely dirty, they are sticky. Take your money elsewhere please.

    Unfortunately, the service we obtained was terrible. We had to ask several times for water and coffee, server had zero energy and took a long time to get to us. We had to flag her down to take our order. Most of our food was good. One person ordered French toast and they were dry.

    We chose The Savoy because of its great reviews however, it fell short. We arrived after the morning rush and it took a very long time to be served, and we waited close to 20 minutes for our breakfast order to arrive once we finally submitted our order. Poaches eggs order hard cooked had runny white and you could see through the smear of avocado on the cold toast (for $19) Overall the order did not align with the description in the menu either. Another table close by was complaining as we left our table 1 hour and 27 minutes after arriving (two person table and we did not stay after eating, evening requesting our bill before the waitress could get back to our table). Loved the feel/atmosphere, didn't like the slow service or costly-for-portion-size meals.

    the food was not horrible. but.... we had 1:30pm reservations. you should not run out of food at lunch time. you ran out of smoked salmon so we had to choose something else. then the food that was already ordered and had been cooked...had to wait, therefore making the food cold and lettuce wilted because the plates were under the hot lamps. the drinks were good. I brought friends from out of town to your restaurant. bragged about how good it is. disappointed.

    We enjoyed our brunch there very much. The fact that they serve brunch every day is awesome. The waiter was also very good. It is a tad noisy! We had asked for a booth when we made our reservation but were shown to a table almost at the front door, though there were booths available. It’s a place worth going to, though!

    Hadn't been to the Savoy since pre-pandemic so we were looking forward to check it out anew; it did not disappoint. Both of us were very pleased with our meals (moules and steak frites respectively, both cooked to perfection|). They were relatively busy (glad to see) so the service was a little slow, mostly due to kitchen output times, but then, it allowed us to enjoy a leisurely meal and, as noted, they got the food done right. Two small niggles; almost all wine by the glass is from Ontario and their other wines are a bit pricier that most other west Ottawa restaurants.
