We ate the 35$ 3 course meal which was good but which turned out far more expensive when we added on all the extras such as drinks, tax, service charge etc.

Group went for burgers. We were all more than satisfied with their burger. Freshly ground and cooked perfect.

Unfortunately they had run out of certain beer on tap. Also ran out of Yorkshire pudding.

Server was on the slow side. At the end of the night she told us they just ran out of burgers.

Would go again for burgers.

We had a wonderful and helpful server and attentive wait staff. It has a fun, yet classy, atmosphere with windows overlooking the sidewalk. There are also tables outside next to the sidewalk. The food was delicious and the parmesan fries amazing. They have an extensive wine list and wonderful cocktails. The Amaro Lemonade cocktail was delicious and addictive. I will definitely go back.

Overall was a good, the best part was the prix fix menu - very good value. The downfall was the service. Had to keep asking for more water and the waiter did not come by very often (i.e. he brought the food and then returned once the meal was over).

Horrible waitress. Service otherwise was good. Didn't like it that they seated us upstairs when downstairs was more alive and plenty of open seats. Otherwise it was OK. If the waitress was more friendly and nicer then sitting upstairs would've made it btr. Overall it wasn't a good experience at this reds. Too bad. I was looking forward it!

Food is always good, albeit slightly too expensive. Service is great - with exception of checking in at the host stand. It is ALWAYS an ordeal. Host is typically on the phone, always has to click through way too many screens on the computer and the entire check-in process (regardless of whether I have a reservation or not) always just feels to complicated. I very often end up sitting down having just rolled my eyes at how overly-complicated it is. Your job in the restaurant industry is to make everything look effortless. Your bartenders and servers seem to be able to to do that, so why is it so hard to just get seated??

Came for Summerlicious... decent value but food was just average, nothing to write home about. I had higher expectations, and was hoping for slightly better quality than Jack Astors and other chains they own. It wasn't a bad experience, I was just hoping for more.

Pretty common beer selection, could be better. Overpriced! Draught is small 14oz for $7.50 and up, pints weren't an option.

Arrived early for 1:15 lunch reservation in dining room. Seated after 1:30 and although restaurant by this time was nearly empty, service was pretty much non-existent. Plates delivered to the table and that was it. No excuse. Our tip reflected the service ... absent.

Well, the food option is very limited. Music too loud. Our waitress didn't even check on us to see how we're doing , brought the bill to me without even asking ; but instead she wanted to know what was my plan for rest of the nite( that cliché question ) and if I need anything ( water) when I was about to leave.😉

Server was lacking..... Very awkward and not very personable. Presentation of food was great. Minimal wine list for a wine tavern and only serve half litres.... Nothing by the bottle which was odd. I order a bottle of wine for the wine service not a carafe that was poured behind the bar. Kind of tacky for a downtown 'wine tavern'. Overall it was okay but wouldn't rush back.

I had the kale and quinoa salad. Very disappointing. Quite a few yellow leaves, very stemmy, apple and sweet potato were almost non- existent. Supposedly there was manchego in it - can't recall seeing any. Definitely not worth the money. Will not be going again.
