Great food, amazing service. The whipped ricotta is a must!! Tandoori chicken lasted me for three meals - great value for price, food is fresh and delicious.

We ate in one of the outdoor "cabanas" which was reasonably comfortable. Our service was outstanding. There were two of us. One thought both the salad and entre were excellent while the other thought the salad was outstanding and the entre good. We had the four items listed and a single glass of wine. With a generous tip (22 percent) our total came to $114. It's hard to say that is good value, but these days everything is skewed and we are glad to help the restaurants and their staff stay in business.

The English Breakfast was cooked perfectly, as was the Hamburger. Kelsey, our server was courteous, friendly and very efficient. The Sticky Toffee Pudding was very good. Overall, a very positive experience and we will be back again.

Excellent Service! There was a communication error that led to a bit of a wait for service. We had no issue and did not say anything. Eventually it came to the managers attention who apologized and unsolicited, immediately provided us with a wide array of their delicious appetizers. The rest of the food was excellent and the manager stopped by several times to make sure we were being taken care of. Small mistake, huge correction - that's how its done! Highly recommended!

I was disappointed to learn that Afternoon Tea has been discontinued and the “All Day” food menu did not offer much variety. The dishes that we chose were well executed and tasty, however. I have eaten at the Dandelion before and I will return again, and hopefully Afternoon Tea will be back by then.

We went with 3 kids (9 and 7) for Mother's Day, and had the best time. The Burger was exquisite, the fish&chips generous, with perfectly cooked cod and a thin, delicious crust, and the Mac&Cheese showed why that can actually be a true dish. The waiter was perfect, super friendly with the kids, witty, and knowledgeable about the offerings. I love their outdoor spaces, safe and pretty, so overall, a wonderful (although not cheap) experience.

The scones were fantastic and the eggs Benedict were good. The fish and chips were expensive and greasy. We went for brunch but they did not serve iced coffee (hot coffee over ice was offered but, for a STARR restaurant, it just seemed odd to not at least have pre-chilled hot coffee). Overall, it was a solid meal. The outdoor setup was very nice and the service was really good. I would go back again and try a few more items but I'm probably not going to rush back immediately.

This was the first time my mother-in-law visited us in the city and we took her to the Dandelion for dinner. We made an amazing choice! We were treated like kings from the moment we arrived and the food was amazing. The star of the dinner was the chicken and duck liver parfait - wow this is an incredible dish, don't miss it! Thank you, Dandelion staff, for a wonderful dining experience!
