Visited the Wellington Gastropub with co-workers. It was just simply an amazing meal. First and foremost, the service was incredible. I wish I caught our server's name. He was spectacular. He was prompt and personable. Our meals were wonderful. The beef short ribs were delicious. Our server took the time to describe the prep process for us. It sounded amazing... More

Enjoyed meeting up with friends at the W, and really enjoyed the evening. Lovely selection of beers/ales/ciders, and a small but good selection of food. The beef, scallops and Salmon were all lovely. Got the chance to talk to the owner who also used to live in London (UK) and has artsy photos put up across the restaurant. Really nice... More

Went planning to just have a few drinks at the bar but managed to get a table so we stayed for dinner. Scallops and fish soup were delicious as was the vegetarian fettuccine. As always the beer selection was well curated and offered excellent choices.

Absolutely delightful dinner. Was so good that we prolonged our pleasure a long time by drinking a second glass of white Sauvignon from Chile while very slow eating our dinner. Our waitperson was a knowledgeable Walker who was attentive and smiled. That was appreciated. A little birthday sorbet appeared at desert time even if nobody at our table was having... More

We had a wonderful dinner at the Gastro Pup the other evening. Firstly, the greeting by the staff upon arrival was pleasant and when we were seated the first sever was also very nice. Our server was excellent, particularly when we were deciding upon a wine with our meal. He suggested a very nice red wine from Italy, not so... More

This has been hubby and my fave restaurant for many years. We don't get out as often as we would like and hadn't been in quite some time. While the food was simply amazing (we had a blacked peach w/ bacon jam for an app), I had seared tuna (delicious) and hubby and steak (also very good although not as... More

I had a wonderful dish made with a variety of local mushrooms and with chicken and bacon. The flavours and textures were perfect, as was the serving temperature. They have many area beers, and several wines by the glass. They seem to have enough staff to meet peak demand, which is great for people on a tight schedule. It's always... More

Very much enjoyed dinner with my sisters. Service was excellent. Wine recommendation were " en point". The appetizers were great. Good variety. The only complaint was the flank steak done "sous vide" i expected it to be more moist than it was. The salmon and scallops were tasty and fresh. The dark chocolate desert was one of the best i've...
