    Did not dine at the Selkirk, it was actually inside Gasoline Alley for dinner and a movie! The starter salad and dessert were delicious, however the main dish (meat and mashed potatoes) was not good. Meat was dry, veggies (apart from the mashed potatoes) were mushy (carrots, yams). The gravy looked like the packaged stuff. My family makes ours from scratch so I can tell the difference. The value for the movie and dinner was great! $45 for everything, drinks not included. I would say it's worth it if you're not a picky eater. The dessert was one of the best I've had, so quality of food overall was mixed.

    The parking was pretty full on a Sunday, the sidewalks were quite icy. We were happy with the bison blue cheese burger, gnocchi and slow cooked beef on rice, didn’t like the crab cakes as they were very small and had a lot of fillers

    We have attended Dinner and a Movie events in the past and this one seemed somewhat disorganized. although our meal was delicious, we had to ask for the buns (we got them them when our main meal was finished) that seemed to just be delivered to other tables as well as the popcorn that we were told would be accompanying the movie. Again, other tables seemed to get it w/o requesting. It seems our table was overlooked as they also brought out 1 salad when there were 3 at the table. Not the best experience but we will contribute it to new staff perhaps?

    I went to dinner and a movie at Heritage Park. It was such a fun night out. The only disappointing things were the salad that came with the meal was awful, there was no dressing on it. Our table was super wobbly and unstable so my husband had to try to level it with a napkin. The chairs were very uncomfortable to sit in for 3 hours for dinner and a movie. Also, we got Shirley Temples for a drink. At $6 per non alcoholic drink, the least they could do was put fruit on top of the second drink we both got. Also, more popcorn would have been nice.

    It was a fabulous date night dinner. The potato leek soup was a terrific starter on a cool night. The veal schnitzel was perfectly prepared crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The side vegetables had lovely colour and variety on the plate. Our server was friendly and attentive. The meal also included a large portion of apple strudel and vanilla ice cream. Kudos to the chef and staff for a lovely evening.

    Where to begin? Our waitress was amazing (Rousseau?). For me, the service is almost as important as the food. Our waitress didn't slide anything across the table at us, she knew how to serve professionally. She knew the menu, was polite and was very courteous. The meal. There were four of us. We started with Bannock, who knew Bannock was the same as Hojaldres. Yummy! The complimentary basket of bread was lovely. 1) Prime Rib roast special, amazing, and couldn't eat the generous portion. Cooked to perfection, the side dishes were wonderful. 2) Fish & Chips tasty and plenty. Great shoestring fries, couldn't finished the generous portion. 3) Burger with fries, delicious, cooked to perfection, and the fries were perfect. 4) Gnocci with Kale was so decadent and rich. The nice collection of mushrooms was superb. Could only eat about half; very filling and sumptuous. Can't wait to eat the leftovers. Can recommend this place. Had a nice ambiance and it was quiet, so you could enjoy a conversation.

    Went for our anniversary. Other than waiting a little bit longer than required for someone to seat us, it was lovely. We've been to the 'date night' before and still haven't been disappointed. Love that parts of the meal are incorporated from the bakery etc on location. Will be back!

    Lovely setting, great staff, but 90 minutes free parking isn't enough - when you're paying high food prices, it's nice to slow down & enjoy the company...we took our time & crossed our fingers that the parking wasn't going to be a problem (too far to the machine to run out and re-register for parking). We both found our mains disappointing but dessert was calorific! Next time, we'll eat elsewhere & meet to share a dessert & coffees instead.

    Had a great Thanksgiving meal at this restaurant, I am celiac and the chef was very mindful and prepared my food separately. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive despite the restaurant being very busy for the holiday. The food as nicely presented and tasted good, the one item was undercooked carrots, but otherwise the meal was great. They also offered boxes for dessert as it was a set menu that evening and my the time I have eaten three courses i had no room for dessert. Great choice will definitely return

The meal was very tasty and the restaurant has plenty of ambiance. And even though the seating was almost to capacity, we had no problems carrying on a conversation. We’ll definitely be back!

    The overall ambience was very good as was the wine. However, the Thanksgiving Turkey dinner was the worst meal we have had in many years. The turkey was tasteless and dry with very little gravy. The dressing was tasteless and heavy gooey. We told our waitress (who was very good at her job) that we wanted some more gravy to try and make the dinner edible. Unbelievably, she said she would get more gravy but that there might be an extra charge for it. A special occasion dinner completely ruined.

    We arrived and were seated promptly for the Thanksgiving dinner (set menu). The server asked if we would like anything to drink other than water. We ordered two dry martinis (which were excellent) but the drinks had hardly been delivered when the first course arrived. It ( the salad) was delicious however the main was not. The vegetables, stuffing and gravy were excellent but the turkey was dry. The deesert was really good. But overall not a memorable Thanksgiving dinner.

    We had another great evening at the Selkirk Grille. We began our evening with a cocktail on the patio and then moved into the dining room for our meal. Three of us had lamb and one had the ravioli and we all enjoyed our meals. Two started with a small salad and they were fresh and nicely presented. Our server, Emma was a gem and helped make our evening special.
