    New York steak was great. Prices are on the high end. Not a cheap dinner by any means. 12oz steak $70, soup $12 risotto $14. Older style restaurant, needs updating

    We were seated in the small wine cellar room next to a large group, until they left it was very difficult for the 2 of us to carry on a conversation. The food was great as was our server but the ambiance was a significant negative factor for our experience.

    Went Saturday, August, 20th, 2022. Great experience. Service was very good. Waiter was always checking to see if our meal was okay and if we needed anything else. Wonderful dining experience. Lord Nelson never disappoints. If you want a good steak this is the place to go. .

    Celebrated our anniversary at Lord Nelson. Scott is a wonderful server who was patient as we couldn’t decide what to have…attentive without hovering over us…started with the Caesar Salad which was very good…just too much for us…our mains were bone in filet which we had never heard of…perfectly prepared…very flavourful…onion rings were crispy and delicious…plates and food was piping hot…a rarity we have found in so many restaurants…it is very pricey…a great evening and we will be back…

    The servers are great. A server that took care of us before came up to us and spoke to us for a short period. Relationships are important and Lord Nelson knows this. The food is always great. The owners come around and say hi and make sure you are satisfied. This is my favourite restaurant

    Best restaurant in Burlington! Steaks and sea bass are our favourites but we have never had a bad meal there. Service is top notch whether it’s for one or two or a large party. They always seem to get it right.

    This was a well deserved dinner tonight . Strip loin was fantastic & I asked for asparagus instead of other veggies . They brought me some Prosecco in a mini bottle to celebrate my early bday . Cassidy was amazing as a bartender , I had my first espresso martini 10/10 . I will be back after 60th party with some pals .
