Exceptional service

As a walk in on Valentines day Sunday, we were seated at the "chefs table" where we observed a very diligent staff prepare and serve meals. As a meal was ready, whoever was available delivered it, therefore your food was at peak! The food was very flavourful and well worth the cost. Highly... read more

My friend and I dropped into Spencers for lunch today and were pleasantly surprised by a prix fixe menu in honour of 'a taste of Burlington'. We love lunching here but it is a bit pricey. We had the most amazing creamy spring onion soup beautifully garnished with frizzled onions and a delicious herb infused oil. My friend had an... More

This restaurant probably has the best patio view in the city, summertime, with the kids waterpark beneath and the sun beaming down on you, can't really put a price on that view and setting. The food is great, restaurant is super clean, staff very professional, intelligent about the food and great presentation, only drawback is the price. For a couple... More

Excellent food, excellent service, amazing atmosphere!! It's pricey yes but I rather go out less often and go to a place I know i will never be disappointed with. The staff is extremely professional and knowledgeable and the ambiance is very nice, cosy and romantic, perfect for girls nights out or romantic dates, private enough for business lunches with tables...

Love to go there, but difficult to get reservations. Expensive, but nice for a special occasion. Service, in my opinion, has never been their strong point.

I've never had a bad meal here! Expensive but worth it. Ambience is quite noisy and not very private but pretty view of the lake.

There food is good, service was polite, the price high for what you got. You need deep pockets to go there often.

My son had a cocktail wedding reception here in July. The venue, atmosphere, food and location is perfect! Very chic and trendy ambience right on the water with lovely water features and tons of Windows and outside balcony. We have since been back for dinner; up-scale food and prices but service is great as is the location. It is now... More
