Last minute Friday night dinner

Haven't been in years and we really enjoyed it. The service was great. We didn't have a reservation and we were welcomed with no issues even though the place was busy. We shared the calamari which was nicely done and not over cooked. We both ordered steak and mine was very flavourful. Too full... read more

Nicely decorated, food fine, not great. Forgot potatoes for 3 out of 5?! But offered to get them... Steaks were cooked nicely (just as my husband does at home). Shrimp were over cooked - we were told "sorry" - no offer of more or anything...we were charged for every pop refill which was absolutely ridiculous...there are so many excellent places... More

My husband and I tried to get into this restaurant several months ago, however, without a reservation on a weekend we were out of luck. This time I made reservations, which I advise you to do also. We were warmly greeted at the door, despite never eating here before, contrary to other comments stating preferential treatment is given to regulars.... More

The level of service at this restaurant meets the highest standards anywhere. My wife and I were celebrating our birthday with family and we were treated like "royalty", not that we necessarily know what that is like..... The fare was outstanding and the dinner guests in the restaurant matched the facility. 4 stars, really. Just make sure you do not... More

I had decided to have a surprise party at the lord nelson steakhouse. We had reserved the room that was beautifully decorated. The owner was very easy to talk to making the arrangements and was open to any changes and ideas that I had for a set menu. They had set a price point a little higher than my guests... More

First time trying out Lord Nelson and it was great! Not in a huge hurry to return or make this a "regular" restaurant as it is very pricey but the experience we had was wonderful and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fine dining experience in the Burlington area. One very important suggestion I might make if you're... More

Just a great pace to celebrate something special. Nick is a great guy who does a wonderful job with the restaurant. I've been going there for 20+ years and always get treated like gold. The food is awesome and be sure to get the Caesar salad. Amazing wine selection and don't listen to the dummy with the review below mine.

The service was slow, and the manager, or owner had a bit of an attitude. The steak was not over cooked and when asked to return it, it was a bigger ordeal than in needed to be. There are 5 better steak houses in the area I would go back to, not this one.

We went there on a Sunday not knowing they were closed for a private dinner. We were still invited in, and sat down to the best dinning experience either one of us has ever had. We were treated like royalty and the staff helped us with all our questions . They even brought us a selection of reading glasses to... More

always great service and amazing food! I had the massive shrimp cocktail as an appetizer, it was definitely bigger than expected. The cherries jubilee as a dessert was the best dessert I've ever had and it was made right in front of us at our table! very impressive!
