                      Good food but too much time in between courses. Reservations for 7:30, two people got out of there at 11:00 !!!!!! But thumbs up for the waiter very entertaining 👍.

                      The noise level was simply unbearable. The music was way too loud, and people had to shout at one another to be heard! This is not my idea of a fine dining experience!

                      It was okay, I expected more value for the price I paid. There was an angry staff member who kept throwing glass super awkward! They also gave us the wrong dishes/cuts of meats .. also the tables were seated very close together. Dessert was delicious!

                      Very poor service. Totally ignored by our waiter who poured tap water before I could order Perrier, took our drink order and dinner and left. The food was well prepared with the octopus being the star. Steaks were perfectly cooked. Both of our potatoes were cooked well but my partner asked for butter and received nothing. I asked for fully loaded and only received sour cream. We were never asked about a second round of cocktails and our server wasn’t around for us to flag down. Another server cleared our table. We chose to go elsewhere for dessert and after dinner drinks which means the restaurant missed out on revenue. The staff at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth had suggested the nearby Keg for dinner. I think I now understand why.

                      Unfortunate that we chose to eat there on a night where there was a loud large family celebration going on , with children running around the restaurant .. would have preferred a more relaxed / chilled environment

                      We had a great experience! Our server was fantastic! Always attentive. My wife was really happy with her Chilean Seabass. It was a generous portion and thick…the way it should be. She had strips the last time at Vargas. We knew it was frozen. But all in all a very nice evening. Thank you.

                      We will not return to this restaurant. The waiter encouraged us to order another meal on the menu even after I informed him that I do not like the way the meat he offered is prepared. He admitted to giving us the wrong information once it was served; however, he didn’t even offer an alternate choice after it was served. Horrible service!!!!

                      John our waiter was great! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars for thd food is because our steak was medium instead of medium rare. $150 steak you kinda want it to your liking. Was a bit over but still delicious don't get me wrong. Was our first Time there as our usual spot was all booked up and we will be back. S/O to Omar another waiter that was really great too!

                      The menu has excellent options. Everything was cooked perfectly. The portions were generous but not outrageous. The cocktails were expertly made.

                      Me & my friend had calamari as appetizers then both ordered steak along side mush potatoes and mushrooms . The meat texture was dry aged as it stated on the menu, very tender and juicy. We had a glass of white Italian wine which added more flavors to our tasty meal. Overall the ambiance and service of the waiters were excellent. I would recommend anybody who wants to break away into weekend to visit the place. Cheers

                      Food was good. Roast beef was just ok. Tomahawk was tasty. Truffle fries arrived not very warm. Mushrooms and garlic mashed potatoes were relatively good. Dessert excellent.
