The food was good. The wine menu was also good. But the wine knowledge displayed by the staff was not nearly as good as it should have been. The staff gave us fairly stock wine recommendations that had little to do with our preferences or our food choices. For a normal restaurant, I think that poor level of wine appreciation is somewhat understandable. But this restaurant should be better.

I went there for Sunday brunch. My arrival was 11:30, but didn’t get my food until 45 minutes later. Mind you, the restaurant was dead and there were only a few people in the restaurant. A very inefficient and unexperienced waiter was assigned to my table and he kept telling us the food was coming. When I finally complained how long it had been taking he told me that the pizza oven wasn’t warm enough. BS! The restaurant opened at 10 am on Sunday and the kitchen wasn’t up and running yet? The place is pathetic! No wonder people stopped going to the location.

A fun location for some good wine and a quick bite! They have a good wine list, their food selections pair nicely with wine, and the service was fantastic. Our waitress was very attentive and engaging. She also explained that even bottles of wine that don't offer "by the glass" on their menu can still be opened if you have at least two glasses from that bottle (perfect for couples who want to try a variety of wines). We will definitely be back!

The atmosphere was bright, full of life, but at the same time EXTREMELY loud and hard to hear, think or carry on a conversation with my fiance.

We ordered two appetizers, the Bruschetta and Truffle Fries:
Brushetta: the bread was soggy from the oils/spreads as it was not grilled enough before toppings were added. Maybe the dice tomatoes weren't drained enough. I've had much better.
Truffle fries: Tasted like normal fries with some seasoning, and light sprinkle of cheese. No trace of truffle whatsoever which was the main reason we ordered them.
We ordered two Entres, two different salads:
Champagne: Dry and lacking much flavor. Nothing stood out other than the tasting of greens.
TTR: Dry and lacking much flavor. Nothing stood out other than the tasting of greens.


The service was the best part of the experience *

My visit was pretty useless. The menu is pretty terrible now. My cousin is allergic to eggs and literally everything on the brunch menu contains eggs and no alternatives. Don't suggest a salad because if she wanted a salad that's what she would've ordered from the beginning. I just don't really like the place any longer.

The food was incredible, our group of 6 ordered a variety from the menu and everything came out great. Our server had a great attitude, however he was not familiar with the wines and said be would send someone over who could help, also said we could order a custom wine flight, but then came back and said they couldn't do that. And the promised person knowledgeable about wines never came to the table. I blame the management for their poor training of staff. When the food was brought out, the runner delivered the steak dishes without being able to tell us which was cooked medium and which was medium rare. Again, very poor training by management.

When the weather is nice, we like to sit on the outside patio because it's usually quieter and we can talk. The patio was LOUDER than inside the restaurant due to several speakers in the area. Music was turned up so loud we had to raise our voices in order to hear each other. Requests to turn the volume down were ignored.

Booked via Open Table for 6. Then called the restaurant to increase to 10, told it wasn't a problem but when we arrived table was reserved only for 6 people. Not an issue as it wasn't busy.
Seated, offered menus and we asked for a few minutes before ordering drinks. Then we waited, and waited and although not busy we had to have someone go look for a server after waiting more than 20 mins.
We were told we couldn't order from regular lunch menu only the brunch menu although a couple at a table nearby seemed to manage to order from the lunch menu?
Service was incredibly slow, not particularly helpful and we left disappointed overall.
Food was ok but I wouldn't say that any of us would hurry back.

Wait staff lacked severely, this once was a place I would frequent. I will definitely not be coming back. I've had parties here for work, taken many clients here for lunch and dinner. After today, I don't believe I will give my business to them again. So disappointing, this used to be a great place.

The Tasting Room at CityCentre went above and beyond my expectation for my business meeting. And this hands down was the best experience that I have ever had with OpenTable. It began with a hostess calling to welcome and confirm my reservation and asking the nature of the visit. Since I was hosting a business meeting, I requested for a table towards a corner and a time reservation for 7:45pm for a Wednesday evening. When I arrived, the reservation was held as to be expected which turned out to be perfect since it was the only "Open Table" in the restaurant. The server was knowledgeable and made great recommendations with regards to their newly redesigned menu that included stellar craft cocktails. Way to knock it out of the park! Will definitely be hosting future business meetings there.

The service was great. Giovanni was our server and he was great. The charcuterie cheese board was really good. The sweet potato chipotle puree was creamy with a hint of spice. The steak was tender seasoned and juicy. Unfortunately the pork chop was dry, but the manager did come to the table to discuss the order and worked with us. I did order a to go order of the pork chop for a family member and the pork chop was dry again. Overall the food was good and I would return.
