I really enjoyed the meal I had at East Side Mario's, The atmosphere of the restaurant was decent and the service was very friendly. However, the meals were way too pricey in comparison to other restaurants that have similar or better meals and for three people, the bill ended up being close to 80 dollars! One of the other person's... More

I came to Sydney this past weekend with a large group and the staff were wonderful! We made a reservation short notice for 18 people on a Friday night, and they were ready for us! Everyone was friendly and whenever they came to our table they would laugh and joke with us. Service was fast, which was fantastic because we... More

That didn't happen here. I was quite disappointed in the service and the food. That being said I must allow that If this particular East Side... More

We decided to try out East Side Mario's again after coming a couple years ago and having a horrible experience. They ave certainly cleaned up their act, we had exceptional service however the food was not as great as the Halifax locations, pasta was under cooked.. good value for money, usually lots left over for lunch the next day.

Food is pretty good, service can be slow. They used to have the treasure box for treats for the kids. They no longer have it. Also, you should never run out of the standard ice cream flavor that comes with all kids meals during March Break. I absolutely love the Halifax restaurant when we lived in Halifax. This one is...

A bubbly, efficient hostess showed us to our reserved booth on time! The booth was in the line of the doorway and a cold draft so my husband asked for another booth and was quickly accommodated! So much more comfortable for seating!! Nicole, our youthful waitress, greeted us and asked what drinks we would like, left and was back in... More
