Appetizers and Dinner were very good. Service was aweful. Waited 10 minutes for 2 draft beers, resturaunt was not busy. I ordered a cocktail, waitress left table, never cleared dishes, never asked 3 other guests if they needed anything. Then my cocktail never came. Bartender finally walked over to apologize that she spaced was watching football game and chatting. Really? I would try it again because the food is very good and it's a cool-looking place.

My wife and I were standing for 10 minutes inside nobody came to talk to us or even try to figure out why we were there. I tried to get their attention; they acted like they don’t see me standing there until I just left. Keep in mind the place wasn’t even busy only 2 tables were occupied with some additional people at the bar.

As other reviewers have noted, we ordered our food and after 45 minutes it had not arrived. The staff made minimal attempts to get our food out and provided no explanation for delay. They seem in above their heads

We had a reservation for a family birthday dinner prior to the revolution soccer game. We got seated right away but were not seen to for over 20 minutes. Once the waitress came over, she was friendly and apologetic. We put in our order and 40 minutes later still nothing. I asked the waitress how much longer and she mentioned they were very backed up and didn’t know. There was a wedding going on and I don’t know if they were short staffed or they didn’t have the appropriate number of servers but they obviously could not handle both a wedding and dinner reservations. We cancelled our order after waiting 50 minutes with no food and ate in the stadium. This was our first time and last time going to this restaurant.

I gave this restaurant a one because I couldn’t give it anything lower. Ordered our food at 5:30. It didn’t arrive until 7:00 with one of our entrees missing. We saw several diners leave without receiving their meals. I strongly suggest you consider other restaurants.

Really bad experience here on Saturday. Most frustrating part was that the menu listed online is nothing like what was offered when we arrived. It contained about half of the items and the only vegetarian option was a green salad. When we asked staff about a vegetarian option it seems to present a big challenge. How can a restaurant in such a prime location have nothing to offer vegetarians?

Service was very slow. Half of the staff was running around overwhelmed while the other half couldn’t have been less helpful. It wasn’t terribly busy as we were there on the early side. I can’t imagine what it looks like when the place is full. Yikes.

For a Friends' night out, this was a nice atmosphere. The venue is open and modern feeling. We had a table by the window and felt it was easy to talk and did not feel like we were too close to our neighboring tables. The service was very good with wait staff getting it just about right with being attentive and not checking in too frequently. Everyone was reasonably happy with the food, though it was not outstanding. The apps were solid, but my falafel wrap was just okay. Falafel was a little underdone and the add-ins were underwhelming for a falafel sandwich. Others were okay with their meals though no one was raving. I think we will go back because it was a nice gathering place for us and the food was good enough.

Springs in booth seats are broken, you can barely get in and out because you’re sinking so low!
Cheese fondu appetizer was delicious, but waitress took it away from us before we could finish it. Calamari was dry and burnt. We decided not to stay for the dinner because the experience was terrible.

Service is great, always friendly and our waitress put up with my boyfriend asking to taste the beer lol so that’s a huge pro! Pear martini was fantastic. We had the gnocchi with short ribs and falafel sandwich. Both really great! Pizza looked fantastic but we didn’t try it (yet). We shared the flourless chocolate cake and it was ok, sort of a small portion which is fine with me. We will definitely be back.

Met friends for dinner at Patriots place and this was the only place that had a reservation time we could make. Food was good, service was ok but prices were high. I understand it is a hotel restaurant but I think they would do a better business if the prices were more reasonable. Saw a couple actually walk out complaining that the prices were too high and went somewhere else.

Waited 25 minutes for our drinks, then the waiter decided to come tell us that they didn't have the alcohol for my wife's drink and had to order something else and wait for those drinks, 35 minutes for drinks, I asked for a pizza well done, it came out just about raw, we will never be back nor will we recommend

The meal was outstanding. The service could have been a little better. We waited 55 minutes after we ordered our appetizers for them to arrive which seemed excessive as we were the only people in the dining room at the time. After that it was all smooth in timing. The other hiccup was we ordered a bottle of wine and when we asked for another they were out. They suggested another that was $20.00 more than the bottle we started with but after we told them about the delay in the food agreed to give it to us for same price as original.

We were there for restaurant week. You could order from a special menu or pick from their regular menu. The special menu was a great value and the food was very good. This restaurant is located in a sports complex so when there are no events at the stadium it is a nice quiet place to relax and enjoy good food. The staff is very attentive and the drinks are also good. We look forward to returning.

The wait staff was exceptional! The garlic Parmesan wings were large and delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly. Unfortunately there was a large chunk of fat in the middle but the chef took the charge for the steak off our bill. The cheesecake was very good. I would highly recommend for a great dining experience.

This place is located in the Renaissance hotel so can be noisy at times. The food was good with the exception of my turkey sandwich - wasn't expecting cold deli-meat turkey when all the other food is more high-end. Drinks were good & service was excellent.

Food was mediocre and overpriced for the quality we got. Bar cocktails were good but very slow. Atmosphere was good. We were disappointed overall. For $100 plus tip (2 entrees, 4 drinks) we expect higher quality all around.

I booked an 11am lunch to celebrate our anniversary. I did not know it was inside the Renaissance. When we entered the hotel, no signs of the restaurant name could be found.

It was a Friday, barely anyone there. We had a table by the window, I could see the table's edges were quite beat up. Kind of like they have been used for 10+ years. I guess if you go after sunset, with the romantic dimmed light or a table cloth, you may not see it. I thought they just open this hotel for less than 5 years, but I could be wrong. For that, 3 stars for Ambiance.

Husband had a Bloody Mary; he said it was too thick, didn't like it. He waited for the ice to melt a bit and thin out his drink, still didn't like it. His club sandwich was fine. Really like their fries. For that, 1 star deducted from Food.

I was disappointed that they didn't serve hot entree for lunch. I should have read the menu before I booked the table. For that, another star deducted from Food.

I ordered Wedge salad, added a "steak" for additional $6. I was expected a few steak tips, but it turned out to be a sirloin steak on a separate plate and pretty good size (bigger than my hand).

The 2-people little table was covered with 2 plates of food, an additional plate for the steak, a big plate of Angus Pub Poutine, a coffee pot and cup, Bloody Mary glass, and 2 glasses of water. All of a sudden, the check appeared between all these plates. What's the rush? There was only 1 other table of guests there. For that, 2 stars deducted from Service.

It was my mistake for spending more time to find out how to use the OpenTable Dining Rewards Gift. The manager was very kind. He was running around, making calls, and then found out that I needed to activate the gift online and picked a restaurant there. And Twenty8 actually do not participate in the rewards gift, but he gave me a discount anyways. So, that exceeded my expectation. For that, I added 1 star back to Service.
