A very good experience with customers at lunch. Our meeting went longer then planned so we were over 30 minutes late for our reservation. I called as I knew this was happening and the Guild was very accommodating at ensuring we still had seating during a busy lunch period.

Always a treat to visit! Cocktails are so yum! I had the gin raspberry beret. For starters you must try the mussels with fennel (add the focaccia to soak up all the delish sauce) the gnocchi was the perfect amount of spice and we indulged in both the tiramisu and almond chocolate cake with mint gelato. Drool worthy! Service was great, ambience was great. Perfect evening!

Great! Celebrated my wife’s B-Day there and reserved a table for 4 (2 small kids plus us) and got a table with half booth. Great server and food, waiting time was good, couldn’t hear any music, value is there, got a free desert for my wife… Would have loved a bench on both sides or booth but that’s just me.

Went to Centini for the first time and the experience was wonderful. We sat right in front of the kitchen and thoroughly enjoyed watching the chefs at their finest. We shared the escargot to start, which was amazing. I had the veal tortellini which was rich and full of flavor and W had the white linguine vongole. It was full of clams and a very large portion that he could not finish it and had the leftovers the next day. Our server was Bec and it was her first day and we couldn't have asked for better service. We highly recommend Centini and can't wait for our next visit!!

We even had a visit from the owner, Phoebe, checking to make sure our evening was going well! Not my first time to this amazing restaurant and will not be my last! I highly recommend the Vin Room; definitely one of my favorite places to dine! Cheers!

Every thing was great . The only issue we had was that our server took for ever in bringing the drinks. We ordered 2 drafts and that took over 10 min . We even went to the salad bar and still no drinks when we sat back down. After I ordered 1 more draft and luckily one of the other girls that was cleaning went for my beer.

John and Sully were wonderful. They were happy to repeat and explain any course that we had questions about. The ambiance of the staff was so happy and upbeat and even all of the tables sat around us were super friendly. The restaurant decor is stunning, and the food was very thoughtfully planned out and well presented. We never felt rushed at any point, but never felt like we had to wait too long for anything. Definitely a 10/10 experience

From entrance to exit this restaurant is an absolute pleasure, staff is always on top of everything for the entire evening. I am willing to go out of my comfort zone with food and try things I otherwise wouldn't because I know the food is always incredible. If you aren't sure what to eat just ask, they are more than willing to give a detailed explanation of each dish. One of only two 5 Diamond restaurants in Canada; a definite must try!!

Quite surprised with The Derrick. First time for us dining there, and when we first walked in, it looked a bit more casual than what we were expecting and hoping for. But the service and the food definitely made up for it. The staff were extremely accommodating. I had to make a reservation change the day before and not only did the staff help me out over the phone but the manager also followed up with my email to double checking that everything was sorted out. The service is really great at this place. I definitely will be returning.
