    The service was slow, the food was great, the waitress did drop our food and we had to wait longer, I feel we should have had it on the house , they did offer a “free” donut.

    The food was pretty good, but the noise level in the restaurant was very high even before the music began. Once the band started playing, we could not talk at all, and one member of our party couldn't even eat. It was really disappointing.

    Acoustics of the rooms made for a very loud dining experience. A bit hard to have a conversation or to hear the server—and that was before the band started to play. The apps were the highlight of the meal. Wings and poutine were good portions and perfect for sharing with a party of four. Long waits for drinks, apps, mains, and frustratingly for the check. It was a 2.5 hour experience.

    We waited roughly two hours to get our food. In that wait time, our waiter checked in with us once to say our food should be here soon. Once we got our food, it was cold and not well cooked. it was not a good experience, and the staff did little to compensate for that. While I understand there are staffing shortages at the moment, we felt as though the crew could have communicated with us more so we could have understood why we had to wait so long. Overall negative experience.

    So disappointing. I’ve been going since first opened, not just that some of my favorite items are gone from the menu but the food was not good. The service was awful took 20 minutes to get an ice tea. Had a reservation to bring family here this coming weekend but I have cancelled it. Too bad.

    I am a big fan of F&T, however a tough night. Our wait person saved the day otherwise may not return. 6:00 reservations and was not busy. We were seated promptly and drinks came timely, and we ordered a short time after. We watched a 5 party at the bar (that arrived at the same time) order, received food and left, the table next to us turned once. The kitchen must have staff issues as the food came out in about an hour, one of our party of 4 received the wrong meal, which got retrieved after a few onion rings were consumed as it looked similar to the correct order. I received half of my order 10 minutes apart. I haven’t been here for a while, and it did not seem anything like my past, and many experiences here. Still a great place, our server was great, just a bit disappointed in what I feel is a 5 star worthy establishment. We all have bad days……

    We were very disappointed this time. When we went 3 months ago, it was the best food and services that we have ever had. We love trying new restaurants. But I didn’t want to try a new one on this date night (which we never get, due to kids) I wanted to go to the place that was the best ever!!! Our waiter was clearly new (which was totally fine, he was great) It was the fact that he wasn’t getting any help. Thankfully the man (whom I think was the dishwasher, finally asked us if we wanted bread) Sadly everything I wanted you were out off. Which was fine because my dish turned out great. The one thing I came for was the poutine and it was inedible…. Thankfully it was taken off our bill but I was so sad. It was the best poutine we had ever had. I will be coming back because I think it was just an off night… no way it went from the best food we ever ate to…. I wish we tried a new place tonight instead. So hopefully third time will be better.

    Honestly the best thing about this experience was the lovely hostess who was sweet and sympathetic to how loud it was in the restaurant. So I know that they have live music and I have been around this kind of thing all of my life and I'm not an older person so I can hang with the best of them, but there is a difference between concert levels and restaurants with live music levels, the PA system needed to be at least 30% lower to allow for most of the patrons whom were not there for the music to actually be able to have a conversation without screaming. On top of that we were told that the "kitchen works best if you put all of your food in at once" which didn't work for us since we were waiting for our third to get there and we just wanted to order a cheese board while we waited. It took 40 mins to get the cheese board and then another 40 mins to get our food, chicken wings and salads. So it was a bit of a mess. I have heard great things about the restaurant but I don't know if I'll try it again and like I said I have been around live music in every kind of venue since I was a child since my parents are in the music business and it's too loud if you leave a fairly small restaurant with your ears ringing.

    The band was very good entertainment but loud for a dinner venue. I would move the band to the back room or upstairs really..it is lovely up there and more room to dance party atmosphere. The food is excellent..but some items are over priced..the Brussels sprouts should be $10 and they were $16 for just an appetizer. I had the seafood crepe which was excellent except for the fact it was suppose to have scallops and there were none in it. The seafood chowder is loaded..really good. There were few options for gluten free.

    Great food & great service! They warn you in advance that the entrees will take a little while to get out, but we ordered appetizers & drinks and they came out real quick. Seasonal menu was awesome and everyone at my table was satisfied. FYI the creme brulee is HUGE. Would recommend.

    Loved the renovated open second floor. Will return for the patio in warmer weather. Overall the food was great. My steak benedict was just delicious and cooked perfectly. It was not hot which was a bit disappointing. I was not happy with our server. He was not welcoming- not particularly attentive- never told us about specials (we overheard him at another table). Not sure why that was the case. We will see what happens next time.
