Great Wedding and View

We were here for a wedding and it was so beautiful...the water, the sky, the moon at night, the food, the service, the drinks....and on and on. We can't say enough about it. It was everything the bride and groom wanted. We had the food from the wedding and not from the restaurant but the meals... read more

This must be one of the best restaurant locations in Ontario. We had a lovely lunch, the view of the lake and the food were both excellent. The server was attentive without being over the top. I hope to return soon to take advantage of eating on the outside terrace.

Great food right on the water's edge in Burlington. I had a burger and it wasn't cooked to death! Ask for Brandon to be your server. Great guy with a keen sense of humour!

We had never been to this restaurant before but my husband was keen to try it out for our anniversary dinner on July 22nd. We arrived and were seated promptly and the waiter gave us two complimentary champagnes for our anniversary, which I thought was a nice touch. He then said that it happened to be the day that the...

We selected this restaurant for a small family gathering. Needless to state that the site is spectacular, probably even more so when you can sit on the terrace. We found the staff and service to be attentive, polite and knowledgable. Everybody enjoyed their selection of food with some interesting and exquisit flavours. The wine list offered a good choice and... More

Food was excellent and not shockingly expensive - I'd highly recommend their seafood, the salmon I had was brilliant. The wine was over-priced for what it was but hey-ho. Service was good and the view is to die for.

Beautiful location, excellent staff, it's a pity food does not measure to the same standard, French fries burned and soggy, Vegetables over cooked, This restaurant is not value for money.

Mme X was visiting the folks in Oakville, ON when we all decided to do a ramble along the Lake Shore and ended up in Burlington ... Looking for an early din Pa X pointed out Spencer's on the Waterfront. He had read a few reviews which were positive and thought to take his visiting kin for a meal. It... More

So this is supposed to be the best restaurant around but frankly it's so-so. The servers were not too attentive so we had to wave and wave til they saw us for our orders. Food was ok, nothing fantastic really. If you are from Canada then I can say think Milestones but with less creativity. View though is spectacular so... More

This restaurant has it all, great location, terrific wait staff and fabulous food. Stopped for lunch and glad we did. We sat on the patio which has a great view of Lake Ontario, the waterfront and the Skyway. The hostess and servers we very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We both had a sandwich, Salmon and Tandoori chicken, both... More
