Waalflower Kitchen & Cocktails
Our cocktail menu pairs classic cocktails with modern mixology offering light and uplifting creations. Our bartenders study, and carefully blend spirits together to create a third dimension that enables every cocktail on our list to explode with complexity and exceed all expectations.
Have been here several times and unfortunately, this wasn't the best. Food and drink quality were very good but the time to get drinks was exceptionally long. Ordered two rounds and both took way longer than they should have. We'll still return in the future to try again...
Hi Paul Thanks so much for leaving a review with us. I am so sorry your last experience here wasn't the best. I will definitely look into why the drinks took so long. Normally our cocktails can take a bit longer than other drinks, but shouldn't be anything too crazy. I will take a look and see what happened there. We hope to see you again soon, so please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can set something up for you upon your return. Cheers Mel Ward
Food was amazing, loved the atmosphere. Although service wasn't amazing, we weren't checked on once after we got our food and it took about 40mins before our server came back.. So that was a bit disappointing
Doors were locked. They weren’t open
We are so sorry you made it down here and we weren't open. We had posted to all of our social media outlets that we were closed during the day. I am looking into why it allowed reservations to be taken. Once again I am so sorry that happened. If you could email me at any time at email@example.com I would greatly appreciate it!
Service was very very slow, the appetizers were fine but not very hot, the main courses were disappointing. The gnocchi was doughy and hard and not hot, probably the worst I’ve ever had and the yam ravioli was not hot and didn’t have much flavour.
We were also seated in the corner by the pizza oven which should not even be seating in my opinion!
Overall dining experience was poor and we would not go back.
Value for your money and quality of food poor.
Hi there. I am so sorry that you did not have a good experience with us yesterday. Would you mind sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at the restaurant 587-349-9008 and we can chat about your experience. We would very much like to resolve the problems that you had. Thank you so much!
Amazing cocktails, food and the BEST playlists! Prices are super reasonable too! We love this place and will definitely keep coming back!
Thanks so much Lauren! So happy you enjoyed everything! We hope to see you again really soon, and we will keep the tunes, cocktails, and food coming! Mel Ward
A weekly date night on a quiet Thursday had this place fairly quiet. Not sure if that helped with the service, or they’re always friendly and accommodating, but our experience was good as far as service and ambiance goes.
As for food, the hamburger and chicken burger were both really tasty. Overall, the food is good, although, the sides were very lacklustre. The salad looked like a store bought mixed green salad with a bit of dressing and the chips seemed like they were just plucked from a store bought bag from the market across the street. They claim “house made yam and potato chips”, but they were just plain boring. No wow at all with the sides!
Thanks so much for leaving us a great review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the service! We do make our sides in house, and source the best ingredients possible, but I will make sure to send these comments over to our Chef for him to review. We want to make sure all aspects of your dining experience are the best they can be. We do hope to see you again soon! Thanks again!
Food was good, drinks were good. Service was sub-standard, slow and inattentive. Will try again, perhaps it was a one off. Food was good enough for a second chance.
Service was great, food was outstanding, atmosphere was superb!
Thank you so much for the amazing review!! We can't wait to see you again soon!!!!
This was our first time. We were drawn by menu using local products. The service was excellent. We will definitely come back again.
Thanks so much for the raving review! We love to hear you enjoyed your experience here. We can't wait to see you again soon!
My girlfriend and I don't often get to have date nights due to our schedules working in the restaurant industry. Tonight we were able to and we're very impressed with our experience at Waalflower. Our server, Latasha, was attentive and knowledgable about the menu, and also spent some time chatting with us on a personal level. We had the carrots, potato wedges, (giant) meatball, a pizza, and the ravioli and every bit of our meal was incredible. On top of this they had one of my absolute favourite bottles of Rioja on the menu, so I was ecstatic. Thank you very much Waalflower and Latasha for the wonderful experience!
Very slow service. Server did not have very much knowledge about the food menu, or wine. Kind of rude.
Hi Kayla I am so sorry to hear about your experience here. Would you mind giving me a call (587-349-9008) or email me: email@example.com as I would like to get some more information and get this fixed for you. Thanks so much!
Waalflower has a great atmosphere and delicious cocktails and food! Would definitely recommend! Fun place to catch up with friends
Thank you so much for the great review! We can't wait to see you again soon!
Great atmosphere ,delicious cocktails. Loved the duck confit spring rolls.
Service was good, drinks were great, food was average.
Good options for vegetarians and meat eaters alike
New menu was great and drink list was novel and tasty
Had a wonderful birthday over some great cocktails and to share plates. The fritters were amazing and highly recommend heading there on a Monday for happy hour. There were enough vegetarian options and everything was between $5-$10!
Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We always strive to have options for everyone. We look forward to seeing you soon! Mel Ward
Made a reservation here not knowing a whole lot about it but initial atmosphere was great! Appies were good but the cocktails were very disappointing. The slush they used was frozen solid and didn't remotely melt leaving you with the task of stabbing through the ice to get to the straight alcohol at the bottom. Gave them benefit of the doubt and we tried another one but to no avail leaving me drinking a beer instead. Food was okay, chicken sandwich was dry and was a collection of chicken pieces and the pasta bland and lacking flavour along with a very liberally dressed salad.
Overall just not a great experience and hope that they can improve before possibly coming back.
Stools also very uncomfortable for a meal.
The decor is very nice. The service was fine but the food was bland. The charred broccoli was good but the tacos were terrible. We had one of each being fish, beef and vegetable. Not great. We had wings and they were not bad. This is not a high end restaurant. It would be fine maybe for a pizza and a beer. The music was too loud in the dining room.
Thank you for leaving a review. Please note that I have already addressed the music levels in the dining room. I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the tacos. We are currently in the process of launching our new menu for the 14th of January with a very exciting new chef. I would love to have you back to try out some of our new items and get your feedback. Please email me at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org
Drinks were good.
Food was just OK.
Considering we had a large group we received horrible service.
I am so sorry to hear about your last experience with us. I did talk to someone from your group on the phone to rectify the issues that we had that evening. We are working hard to always be better. If you require any additional information, or would like to discuss in further detail, please feel free to call the restaurant and ask for me, or email me at any time email@example.com
The restaurant and lounge are very inviting, but definitely prefer the atmosphere at the lounge. It is a great place to meet with friends and also go on a date. We had mojitos who he were great but had too much ice. The food flavours are unique.
Thank you for sending us your review! We are always striving to make everything the best we can, so we appreciate the feedback. We hope to see you again soon so you can try another delicious cocktail and try our new menu! Mel Ward
The food and cocktails were great! They had a few holiday cocktails; I tried the Nutcracker. As well, the manager provided a complimentary test course for us in exchange for feedback which was a pleasant surprise. The servers were all wonderful and attentive, and the music choice was great for a Saturday night! Will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for the awesome review! We are so pleased you enjoyed the cocktails - we are pretty proud of them! I will pass along the nice words to the staff. Hope to see you again really soon! Mel Ward
2nd time here , but this time music was loud , it would be fine in the lounge area but not in the dining room. They did turn it down when I asked but still too loud for trying to visit . Otherwise all was great !
Hi there! So sorry the music was too loud. We always strive to make sure the ambiance is appropriate for our guests. We will make sure to pay more attention to that in the future. Thanks so much for the positive review - we hope to see you again soon! Mel Ward
Great food and service and the place was cozy and rustic
Thank you so much for the review! We hope to see you again really soon. Mel Ward

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your latest visit with us. We greatly appreciate your feedback, and look forward to see you again soon! Mel Ward
Great ambience , good food and service, we will be back!
Great cocktails and amazing food
I’m sorry, but I have to be honest. I had never been, when I arrived I was excited as the place is quaint, cozy and inviting. However, the service was somewhat lack luster, plates not cleared away in a timely manner, no offering of more to drink until it was too late, had to go. The main dish of duck was terrible! It was way, way over cooked, so dry, no flavor! And for the price. 😬 The spring roll that accompanied the duck was delish, I would have eaten a plate of them. The beet salad was good, nothing overly special. Should the waiter had come to ask us at any point how our food was, we would have told them right there. Unfortunately, I will not be returning nor recommending others to visit. Establishments like this need to step it up, the market is too competitive and for as much as it costs to eat out. Sadly disappointed!
Overall we had a great time!
Broccoli - Fantastic
Meatballs - Fantastic
Grilled Cheese - Fantastic
Market Fish - Very good flavors, found the fish was overcooked!
Under Milk Wood - Our favorite out of the two
Both cocktails were great!
Compared to our one previous visit the service was fairly slow even though they had a lot of staff around. There may have been some training going on but for it not being that busy we were waiting for a while.
Good way great but the portion of ravioli was just under what I needed, and I had some appetizers as well.
Recommend going for happy hour, it is a great value and have a wide selection.
Once bill was paid we stayed to talk for a while but we didn’t get any water served
Great place for a girls night out catch up! Food & service were fantastic. Will definitely be back!
Awesome atmosphere, great food and friendly staff. Something for everyone on the menu! Loved the hand crafted cocktails!

Thank you for the amazing review Helena! We hope to see you back again soon!! Haley Jarrett Assistant General Manager Haley@waalflower.ca
Really enjoyed ourselves. Music was a great mix, but a bit loud.
Awesome place for a girls night!
The service was great and we enjoyed our cocktails. We had some major issues with the actual food.
Hello, Thank you for the feedback. I'm very happy to hear that your service and cocktails were great, but sad to hear about the food. I would love an opportunity to hear more about what happened during your visit. Haley Jarrett Assistant General Manager Haley@waalflower.ca
Slow service and meal was just ok
Hello, Thank you for the feedback. I'm very sorry to hear about the service being slow and the food. I would love an opportunity to hear more about what happened during your visit. Haley Jarrett Assistant General Manager Haley@waalflower.ca
It was our first visit. Thought we should try it. Our server was great, but the hostess was pretty abrupt bordering on rude. I’m not sure what about us seemed to turn her off but I did not feel welcome at all. Also, we were seated next to a loud birthday party with small children that was also close to the open kitchen. I did ask in my reservation for a quiet table if possible. This was the exact opposite. Not the date night I was hoping for on a Saturday night.
The food was tasty and the portions were large. I would have liked to have been asked if we wanted a half charcuterie or a full one - given the portion size and that we were also ordering main dishes. We were just given a full one. That said, the plate was good, although I would have liked to see more pickles (two small thin slices) and olives or even another type of mustard or preserve. Not a lot of accompaniment for the meat and toasts.
Overall, it was nice, but I am not sure if we will be back any time soon.
Hello, I am very happy to hear that your service and food were good! I would like to personally apologize for your first impression while dining with us. I would truly appreciate the opportunity to further discuss this with you, if you would like to contact me. Haley Jarrett Assistant General Manager Haley@waalflower.ca
Great food, great cocktails, fun ambiance. Service was perhaps a little slow but didn’t detract from the evening. Would definitely recommend!
Hello Mike! Thank you for the review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your dining experience with us, we will work on our speed!
