    Sorry I wish I had a better review. We waited 5 minutes before I went looking for someone to seat us. I had asked for dinner table and was sat at a high table and we asked to be moved. Staff spent too much time describing the drink menu. Forgot our Pop and condiments and had to ask for them. Air conditioner was too loud. You should get a mini split. Frankly it was an effort. I mentioned in my reservation that it was an anniversary. Customer service should have noted that upon our arrival.

    The restaurant was far busier than we were expecting for a Tues night due to the incredable number of tourists that seem to be in the City. Quite noisy. A few items like lamb not available on the menu. Overall good.

    No words tonight to describe our disappointment! First we get seated in a corner of stuffy dining room after having been told wine bar area. Service was beyond terrible, food was so delayed we could have gone out and come back still waiting for order. Price paid for 4 of us was beyond exorbitant. Pasta dish with chicken was disgusting…lacking flavour and sustenance. Chicken tasted like rubber and pasta was bland and store bought texture. Did you think throwing a few olives was going to save this dish? Duck nachos were spot on but a total bust for everything else. Just an overall terrible experience and not to mention how server spilled the wine and didn’t even clean up said wine after splashing our menus and cutlery. Hello Mr Florida new server Manners….. we expected more from you and this restaurant. We were around when magnum and steins first opened in the original location and honestly folks save your hard earned money and head elsewhere. This is NOT the place to go in St Johns.

    We were immediately seated at a lovely corner table for two. Service was very good…maybe drinks could have been a bit quicker but have a feeling they may have been short staffed I had duck nachos for appetizer …my first time- they were delicious. My husband had the fish soup, which is always a winner, but last night was quite salty. My lamb shank was delicious, and hobby’s rack of lamb, also a winner. Our waiter, Joshua was great, even though he seemed to be over worked. Overall, a good evening out with hubby! Will definitely be back!

    Service was very slow. It might have been due to the large volume of take out orders. Dining room was quite noisy. Food was ok. The fish soup was good. Still an ok value. The decor needs a refresh. Looks like upkeep has been slipping.

    Your server from Florida is terrible. We had to ask for water . Waited 1hour and 15 for our meal. At the 1 hour mark he finally came with bread for the table. Barely checked in on us , except to stand near the table and stare uncomfortably. I understand it was busy, and it was not really the lengthy wait that bothers me but the utter lack of customer service. Didn’t offer to make it right . I work in customer service i the restaurant industry. If this happened in my restaurant I would have comped the drinks, have free dessert, discounted …something to appease the client. He is not suited to this industry. I left a tip only because I hope you split them with the cooks and other servers who were overwhelmed. Our steaks were supposed to be medium , but we’re on the side of Ned-well, probably because they sat under a heat lamp for a bit too long, waiting for service. Our first time at your restaurant and we were disappointed. Quentin Qkconnolly@eastlink.ca

    The service was slow. It took almost an hour to get the appetizers. My steak was rare not medium as ordered. There should have been more servers. The one server they had was stretched due to the number of tables he was expected to serve. No one asked how my steak was so I didn’t have the opportunity to send it back. I had to ask for a steak knife none was provided. The potatoes were barely warm and the vegetables cold. I ordered a cup of coffee before my meal was served and didn’t receive it until I had received the bill over an hour later. I had to ask for the cream of sugar and a spoon. The music was way too loud very poor atmosphere and the music was rock. I always regarded Magnum and Steins to be a higher end restaurant but you could barely hear yourself stink because the music was so loud. The service was poor the food wasn’t great my coffee spoon was basically thrown across the table at me it’s just not the Magnum and Steins I was used to. It has more of a feel of a pub than a fine dining restaurant. The Time I was there before this visit we were brought down to the bottom floor to the pub area for dinner. We had not requested to go to the pub they said they didn’t have enough space upstairs even though we had booked the reservation for in advance. I think you should at least have the courtesy to tell your clients that upstairs dining is not available before putting them in a pub setting with constant distractions of waiters going up and down over the stairs filling drink orders, blaring music and constant loud chatter etc. I felt so bad for the older couple across the table from me they were in their 70s and their table was next to the speaker. I’m sure their ears had to be blown off and the lights were bright there was so much confusion going on there it really is not fair. Almost people Dining now he’s only for one a year special occasions it’s very expensive and not fair treatment.

    The food and service were solid . The server was friendly and knowledgeable. The interior was dated and very tired with music that was distracting rather than creating an ambiance. The quality of the food did not match the shabby decor.

    Waitress was excellent and food was good, but the kitchen was so slow it almost 90 minutes to receive our appetizers and well over 2 hrs to receive our main courses. The same happened for everyone around us. Spent over 3 hours there and much of it in a starving state.

    My experience on Apr 21st was disappointing, which is a first for me at M&S, as it is one of my favorite places. Our server was friendly, but we waited over 2 hours before we got our entrees. And even when we got them, only two of the four of us did, while the other two people still waited a long time before they got their entrees. Also, at the time of ordering, my daughter asked about the gluten-free options. The waiter did note that her order was to be gluten-free, however when she finally got her order, after waiting for 2 hrs, she took a few bites and realized it had breadcrumbs in it. Wr asked the server if her meal was in fact GF and he checked with the kitchen to make sure, but advised that because the kitchen was so busy, they made the mistake of not keeping her meal GF. The server was apologetic and the manager did not charge my daughter for any part of her meal, and also gave her a gift certificate for a future date, which was appreciated. But my daughter ended up feeling unwell and was worried she would be too sick to work the next day, thus losing a day's pay. I know it wasn't the server's fault as he did make note for her meal to be GF, and the Mgr sis come and speak to her and gave her a gift card, but I believe the reason for the error, as well as our very long wait for entrees and appetizers, was that it was simply too busy. We also noticed that some people who came in after us were served before us. Luckily, my daughter was able to go to work the next day, even though she was still feeling a little ill. I know this was likely a one-time situation, as my daughter did check a local FB Gluten-Free group on people's experiences with M&S and she only read good feedback. But the overall experience was disappointing, especially as it was my birthday supper. I am hoping next time will be much-improved.
