Great dining! Food was superb from the traditional roast, onion gravy to the shepherds pie. The Double chocolate stout was particularly tasty. Our waiter Matt was tops. Very attentive and quick. I'll be back there soon!!

Underwhelmed! The decor was cute but the seating not that comfortable. There are some really tight, tiny round tables awkwardly shove in corners. My filet was one of the least tender I’ve ever eaten. Drinks were really good. Unlikely to return When there are so many better and consistent options available in the city!

Great dinner and excellent care from our waiter. It was apparent that the workers were well trained and enjoyed their job. Highly recommend for a unique dining experience.

Food was fantastic and the decor/layout of the restaurant was really clever. Waiter could have been better, maybe was having a bad day.

The dandelion is a sweet little date spot! The upstairs is very quiet and the ambiance is intimate and cozy. The wait staff is attentive and very helpful, and the food was delicious! Would highly recommend!

Only our second time here, but two for two is perfect. Started with the cheese plate, which was again, spot on. For entrees, the Tandoori chicken was mind blowing! And I say that being a huge Indian food buff. The dish was absolute perfection. Chicken infused with delicious savory and sweet spices. I’m already dreaming of the next time we can order it. It was so delicious, I had to restrain from licking the plate. A cozy, warm inviting atmosphere with friendly, attentive service. I’d travel from anywhere to get here. You should too.

While our waiter was wonderful, the food did not all come out near the same time and it took quite a bit. Our reservation was at 6:30 because two of us were attending a show at 8pm. At 7:45 we two shoveled a couple of last bites in, leaving half on our plates, and hurried to get to the theatre exactly on time. My friend whose meal arrived last stayed after we left. Fortunately her meal was deducted from the bill.

Fish and chips definitely live up to the hype. Absolutely awesome.
We are definitely planning on coming back and soon.

The food was wonderful. We sat in the “dog room” as we called it, which has tons of pictures of dogs, made for fun conversation.

This is an English style pub with very good pub style meals mixed with some great other excellent dishes. The seafood was fresh and very tasty. Good alcohol list. Can be loud but not too bad.
