no window ! but decent food...

It is a bit of a bizarre place.... It is located in the corner of a shopping mall and has no windows... Staff is very helpful and friendly. Food is good, however a bit expensive (considering the place) however you will get a lot of extras out of the kitchen...

The Lord Nelson is one of those classic steak houses where the Cesar Salad and Cherries jubilee are made table side. I have been at least 100 times and decided to share with everyone how great it is. I have come to know and really like the staff, and I have never had a bad meal since going. The Steak... More

The restaurant is located where you'd least expect it (a low-end retail plaza) and unless you knew it was there, you'd drive right on by without so much as a second look. Thankfully for us we knew this restaurant's reputation, and decided to seek it out. Once you get past the front door, you quickly forget about the restaurant's surroundings.... More

From the time we entered this restaurant till the time we left, there was not one thing that was not a 10 out of 10. The atmosphere, the service, the food and all the people. One of the very few places I have been in the past ten years that give service like it should be done, for example making... More

We went here for my birthday, the setting is dark but nice, my son order a Cesar salad that was made right at the table, we order steak which was absolutely delicious. The wait staff was very attentive and courteous. I would recommend making reservations. A good choice.

If you are looking for an outstanding meal, service and atmosphere, you can't go wrong with the Lord Nelson. Chef prepares everything. Steaks are perfect, Caesar salad prepared at table side. Beautiful interior and an excellent wine list. Although located in a strip mall, don't let that deter you. Behind those doors is a beautiful oasis for the culinary senses

We have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and celebrate family events here. The décor is light & airy, (no dark wood paneling like many steak houses). For larger group gatherings they have a separate back room but for more ambiance you can it in the wine room which is behind the bar. This is a fine dining... More

This restaurant is located in a strip mall . Based on the outside appearance , there is absolutely nothing to draw you in or to really let you know it is a restaurant . HOWEVER , once you enter you will find a very contemporary , high-end , white table cloth restaurant . Certainly an equal to many of the... More

The restaurant now offers combination selections that are very reasonable. The service is spectacular and this along with a very delicious serving makes this one of my favorite paces to go. The atmosphere is very good and you can actually talk to each other and don't need to shout. Food portions are very generous and although I wanted to order... More

This has been my very favourite, go-to, place for many years. Our last visit, however, left us all disappointed. Firstly, new wait staff who seemed more eager to get us fed and out the door were really irritating. We had ordered pre-dinner drinks, and before we were halfway finished these, the waiter had asked us to order our wine at... More
