service was amazing!! the food was a bit salty, there was 8 of us, and we all seemed to feel salt was a bit much. the calamari was good but salty, the nori pizza was good but salty. the beet salad was great! also had the prawn and sausage pasta, was good but also on the salty side. overall was a decent experience, but heavy on the salt

Nice casual atmosphere and we all enjoyed the food. The roast beef dip was tender and favorfull. Paired it with the beet salad which was excellent. Good selection of wines and friendly service. I will definitely return to try other menu items.

Made a large reservation and table was ready fir us when we arrived. They use linen napkins and ambience is lovely. They have decorated the place for the holidays and it is very festive. The waitress was lovely and accommodated our timing as we were heading to the theater after dining. The menu was varied and everyone enjoyed their meal. BTW they offer half priced bottles of wine (under $70) on Wednesdays. Waitress made the dining experience fun and inviting. Will definitely go there again!

I am tired of these surveys. If I like the food, service and value I will return. Every store and service sends these out, I’ve had enough. Don’t ask me again.

Love this place. Food and service are both always on point, whether you’re out for brunch ( have the tomato and spinach Benny) or for late night appies or pizza.

Feature fish dish of the day was arctic char- thought it would be fresh. It wasn’t and very dry. Too much oil on wild rice a spaghetti squash. My friend had a steak sandwich. Medium inside and tasty but charred on the outside. I’ve dined here often and it seems the quality of the food is decreasing each time. Too bad as we want to support local restaurants instead of going downtown. Menu items such as pork chop, lamb etc on previous menus taken out and y they were good!

I had a great spinach omelette and a nice glass of their featured red. The prices are reasonable, our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The atmosphere was pleasant and the noise level was low. We weren’t rushed, and six of us spent a pleasant couple of hours over lunch there.

Service was excellent but the food wasnt great. Ordered the basil pizza. Sparse toppings, mostly just oily and under cooked crust. My friend had the salad which looked ok.

Great place to meet, eat, and talk. Food was extremely tasty. Portion could’ve been just a bit bigger, but we had room for dessert. The service was impeccable. Our waitress was so personable. I’d highly recommend it😊

What a great place to be, the whole group enjoyed the outing and we will all be back. There is not enough to be said about how great this place it. Being someone who has food allergies, I was so pleased to see a huge menu that allowed me to make modifications that allowed me to eat basically everything!
Can not wait too go back!

Service at the Block is unparalleled. Utterly friendly and charming. The food is excellent, the ambiance is graceful, clean, and comfortable. The prices are competitive so the value is high. We took friends from the States, and the only mistake was one steak ordered medium came almost rare. Luckily it was so delicious that our guest ate it anyway.

An excellent meal again from The Block. Showed up with a couple friends for a brunch, one of whom i learned is Vegan with a sesame allergy. The server and kitchen didn’t stop for more than a moment to come up with alternatives from their menu to accommodate her needs!
That flexibility and knowledge and honest effort from their team says much about why I continue to make the Block one of my go to locations for dining.
Thanks for another great meal, and for making my recommendation look good!

Great food, fabulous service (the waitress was extraordinarily patient with out party, half of whom were an hour late, and when we asked for different seating). Good price, clean and modern decor. The music was a bit up for us but none of the rest of our party mentioned it at all. Great time. Thanks!
