Reasonably priced breakfast and great coffee!
Amazing breakfast and phenomenal service!!
The wine was yummy. The pork chop was delicious. The decor was great.
Waitress seemed annoyed from the get-go. Chip on her shoulder left us not wanting to address the issues we ran into with our meals.
Food was ill-prepared. Well done steak came out red. Medium well steak also came out red like the “well done” one. Fail.
“Seasonal” vegetables were not noted, so one of the people in our party ended up being allergic to the corn they served (never known corn to be a winter vegetable). Fail.
Instead of re-plating with all the usual finesse and fixings the original plate had (minus the corn), the waitress emphasized how long it would take to redo the steak, and pressured us to place it on a side plate so she could bring a new plate without the corn. She came back with a large plate and a single scoop of mashed potatos and a cup of gravy. No squash purée, no bokchoy, no nothing. No finesse. Just a piece of meat on a side plate and a single scoop of potato on a large plate. Fail.
Thanks for the excellent Valentine's Dinner.
The food is excellent, and well presented. The restaurant was full but the service was still very good. Nice interior with a good ambiance. Wine selection was quite good. We had a sangiovese. No bread or buns available ,
Good food for a fair price. Nice restaurant that gets higher end without bankrupting clientele. Also, the staff is super friendly.
Great Valentines date place
Service was sub par. Not enough staff to offer good service Bar staff had to come in to help out in dining room.Food was fine but not up to par. Veggies were over cooked and served cold
The entire experience was very good. We sat in the dining room which has a nice atmosphere. The food was delicious at a good price and the portions were just right. We will definitely recommend The Block to our friends and neighbours!
One of my go to places when meeting my friends halfway from the South to North.
Staff are great and friendly. I have never had a bad meal at The Block.
Try it...it will become your go to place, trust me!
Great 'neighbourhood gem'. Went on Tuesday night for a quite business dinner. Would recommend the salmon or steak and frites special
Once again the food and service were perfect.
When we arrived we had to walk around looking for someone to seat us. Once seated our server was cheerful, friendly, and engaged. We were however trying to have a romantic time and there was very few people there but I still felt a little rushed to order our main course. We actually left and went somewhere else to converse and finish our evening
Enjoyed the calamari, prawn & sausage tagliatelle, spaghetti & meatballs. Friend wished there had been some garlic toast or fresh bread. Both desserts - vanilla & brownie gelato, chocolate & orange creme brûlée - were tasty. Unfortunately, they were missing an ingredient to make the espresso martini. Not busy that weeknight so not rushed & lots of privacy. Ample free parking.
Amazing food and great value!!! Definitely will go back. Thank you!
We had an enjoyable experience at The Block. This was our first visit to this restaurant and we opted to try it based on the recommendation of a work colleague. Our server, Jesse, was very helpful and her timing of checking in and delivering the starters and mains was spot on. The food was excellent, prepared perfectly and presented well. The desserts were very tasty. It was interesting to find that they are made in-house (with the exception of the sorbets and gelatos). Overall, a great experience which we plan to repeat.
Great service- the food is consistently very good whether we come for brunch, lunch or dinner. Can hardly wait for patio days!
It took 20 minutes for the server to come to take our order, and then another 40 minutes to receive our food. My eggs benny was cold by the time I got it, so pretty sure it was sitting for a bit before it came out. Yes, we were a group of 8 but I made a reservation before-hand so they knew to expect us, and the restaurant was not very busy.
This truly is a gem! Great food and good portions
Delicious! And not too far from the Jubilee if you want a nice bite before a show! Good parking too.
Restaurant was not very busy Meal was excellent Server Heather was very friendly and attentive to our needs offering good advice on menu selections. A definite neighborhood gem
Had a great meal at The Block Kitchen. The food was incredible and the service was warm & friendly.
Excellent food in a nice environment. Good service.
There are few good restaurants in the N.W. so The Block is a welcome addition
Tasty and innovative food
Food and Service were both excellent !! Thanks for being open on New Year's Day.
This was our first time at The Block. It had a nice feel to it and the staff and service were great. The menu is relatively small but is diverse enough that it should please just about anyone.
Breakie on Sunday was excellent. Service was Great... Server was very attentive and friendly.... Great place for Sunday Brunch....Neighborhood gem 👍
Still miss the baby potatoes for breakfast-brunch, but otherwise no complaints.
Amazing food with great and helpful service. Great ambiance too.
Sat on the lounge side. Bartender was great. Brunch was excellent. Try the Andrea’s hash.
No one greeted us for when we walked in so we stood there for 10 mins and then my food didn’t come complete!
Great value and atmosphere! The staff was very helpful with all of my food issues.
Will be back
It's our neighborhood gem!! Great wholesome food. So yummy. And the cocktails are great too.
Everyone enjoyed their food & drink selections. Calamari was thinly sliced so crisp & light. The sole wrapped in phyllo was a treat. The prawn & sausage tagliatelle was full of flavor. Unfortunately, the pizza did not match the other dishes in taste. The mocha cocktail & hot chocolate were delicious. The pistachio gelato was a nice finish to the meal. Service was good but wished they checked on drinks sooner or a bit more. Decor was modern with rustic touches.
Love this place.
This is one of the worst dining experiences I can remember. There were only 3 other tables in the restaurant but service was poor. It took several minutes to be seated, the temperature was uncomfortably cold, steaks were very cooked and the pizza tasted like gasoline.
This is the first time I have written a poor review.
could have more vegetarian options, but what we had was really nice.
good value, great food and good service. Love the featured local craft draft brew
Love this place. I travel all the way from the South for their menu options. Great service and friendly servers.
I will be back.
