The Gates on Roblin is a great Restaurant for Sunday Brunch. If you haven’t had their waffles, you haven’t lived.

We came here to celebrate our friend getting married. I've been here for the brunch and it was great! But we were so disappointed with the dinner. The waitress was rather cold. She didn't bother telling us about the specials, we found out from the other tables. The bride ordered the salmon but had to send it back as it was really salty. All in all, I found that everything was just expensive and not of the same quality that we had at their brunches. We ended up going elsewhere for dessert. So brunches are great, but would not recommend for dinners.

We had a lovely evening, just the four of us. With three other tables in our room occupied, so it was not too noisy. The service and the food were excellent.

I was very disappointed in the brunch. The waffles were so dried out, and just tasted awful. Cold food was warm, hot food was cold, and the service was mediocre at best. My son is only 10 and was charged full price until I had to point it out to my server. She said 12 and under were discounted. There is no way my 10 year old looks 13 or older. Perhaps the servers should be trained to ask rather than have to be corrected by the guests. The whole experience rubbbed me the wrong way.

Generally good. Only 2 issues: menu didn’t mention what was in the mixed vegetables-some sulphuric components, which when cooked with the rest of the vegetables, tainted everything; and we had a fly, that bothered us throughout dinner.

Went for Sunday brunch with wife and kids; we had been there for brunch in previous years, and went for the large food selection and to see the horses.

Horses weren't there, food selection was decent, but not great, food quality was decent but not great, service wasn't great. Overall, nothing terrible about this place, but nothing special either. This makes it a poor value.

The staff were very friendly, polite and efficient. The food was good, with a wide variety, unfortunately too much for us to try every type. I guess that means we will have to return, and perhaps bring some family. The roast beef was melt in the mouth good, and so were the breaded shrimp. There was noise but certainly not unbearable noise as there were families with children, and after all it wasn't a funeral.

This is the best Sunday Brunch in the city. It has everything you could want from seafood to fresh fruit. Eggs, meat, individually prepared omelettes and crepes are all there along with salads, breads and cheeses. Fantastic desserts round out a great meal.

I've been going to The Gates for years, and have always been impressed, but this visit was disappointing. The quality of the food is still up there, but the choice is definitely declining. The era of the buffet is on the wane, and The Gates was one of the last great bastions of it, but what we experienced this last weekend probably put an end to our going, it just wasn't worth the price.

On another note, the service was excellent, and the staff incredibly attentive.
