We had brunch two days in a row here while staying at the hotel for our anniversary weekend. The first day was so busy they recommended we order via room service (realized after receiving the bill that there is an extra charge for room service). Again I understand it was busy, but it took 70min to receive food. I love mushroom and ham omelettes so I had the omelette here, and really disliked it so didn’t eat more than a couple of bites, but the fruit cup and hash browns were good. The second morning we ate at the restaurant and had the buffet. It was a good variety of options. However, each food item was just okay. Nothing flavourful that made us want to try anything a second time. The atmosphere was nice, I really loved the aesthetic of the bistro inside, and the servers were all very friendly.

I’ve had brunch at Yellow Door before and was sadly disappointed this time. The buffet was small, without many of the items I previously had. (Smoothies, eggs Benedict, panna cotta, etc). I had to ask for butter, syrup, and ketchup from my server. She didn’t clear away used dishes and glasses and was not very attentive. It’s not worth the price I paid at all. I hope it can be improved back to the quality it used to be!

This is a high class but relaxed restaurant with eclectic menu. We attended on the first full weekend of opening, and Stampede. The servers were amazing, even though they were very short staffed.

Terrible. The server was rude and shockingly un-attentive. I was very disappointed in the service and the food was underwhelming. We may have enjoyed it more if we weren't so put off by the vibe from the waiter. The bill was $300 for 4 people which would be fine to pay of the experience was amazing. It wasn't even busy... would not go back or recommend to anyone which is too bad because hotel arts had a very fun atmosphere.

Whether you want to enjoy the pool or not, the tables and couches around the pool are ideal for a get together - or just hang out on your own and people watch. Danny is a great server!

Everything was good . Great food , good cocktails .

Unfortunately the service was below pair ( with only being 2 tables full in the pool area ) , our server was mia for a good part . Which left us with empty water glass and cocktails .

Will definitely go back as maybe it was just an off day

We had a lovely Valentine's dinner at the Yellow Door. The food was delicious and we loved the fact that it was paired with a different type of wine for each course. We go to the Yellow Door at least once a year, and we always have a great experience.

In a word, disappointing. It took over ten minutes before a server greeted us and brought water. He was also scarcely around during the meal. The Valentine’s Day special that we chose featured undersized portions. A ‘prawn cocktail’ with two tiny shrimp? The surf and turf beef Wellington that I was supposed to receive was not as advertised, since somebody in the kitchen decided I should get the same gluten free meal as my husband (without consulting me). Apparently one scallop is an appropriate substitute for a lobster tail. I might add that the main course did not arrive until one hour and 40 minutes after being seated. The ‘chocolate fondue’ was a dish of melted chocolate with a few accompaniments. My husband received a foul tasting bowl of coconut sorbet, since other than the strawberries, he could not eat anything on the plate. After over two hours, we left hungry and disappointed.
