I've been to a few murder mysteries at Scarlett's over the years, but I recently tried their new location in Kanata. It's smaller than their venue in the market, but the room was nice and there didn't appear to be a bad seat in the house. Plus you don't have to shell out $20 for parking! In any case, we... More

We decided to try the murder mystery dinner theatre for something different. It was advertised as Sherlock Murder Mystery but that is not what was performed. However, it was an Eddie May presentation of "Silence of the Hams". The performance was entertaining and the food was good. We had Filet Mignon (8 oz) with redskin mashed potatoes and market vegetables,... More

I really wanted to like this place, the venue was good I've been there many times so I was excited to attend my first ever dinner theater show there. First off the show I attended was themed around Game of Thrones - which I've never watched. So right off the bat I was lost. The acting was pretty brutal, and... More

As theater kids in high school I thought this would be a fun way to celebrate my birthday and in the end I was right. Before going I read the reviews and almost cancelled because I was so nervous since a lot of people had disappointing experiences. I kept my head up and decided we'd go out. The show was... More

The show itself was quite entertaining. The actors were great. However, the service was extremely slow. The waitress told our table twice that it was intermission and the smokers could step outside, they were told by another staff member at the door they were not allowed to leave and that the waitress didn't know what she was talking about. The... More

Having read earlier reviews before heading out for the evening, I expected mediocre food so I was pleasantly surprised when I found myself swallowing a reasonable jambalaya - certainly far from the Cajun original, but at least not foul tasting so I was pleased. My husband played it safe and had the macaroni and cheese, which he also found palatable.... More

My wife & I went to see the show & to have a nice dinner. I have been to many of similar events like this. We were both extremely disappointed in the entire experience! The food was mediocre, cold & kind of blah. I tried to enhance it with salt & pepper, but couldn't see the meal because it was... More

I went with a group of girlfriends to a Game of Thrones themed show recently. We thought the show was ok, entertaining at times. When the food is served they dim the lights so much that you can't see what is on your plate. Guests were using their phones to shine light on their plates. The food is very disappointing.... More

We went to the Scarlett theatre/Velvet Room last Friday for our office/Christmas party. The show was fun to watch but the food was very disappointing. The show changes every month or so and it's a murder mystery. The actors walk around the restaurant, perform on a small stage and interact with the guests. It was fun to watch, but sometimes...

This dinner theatre has been around for more than 25 years. It is a dinner theatre with a fix price menu of $54.95 plus tax. The price includes your meal and the show, not drinks. The food menu is fairly simple but good and people go for the show and the murder mystery. The whole show is all around you... More
