We went here for a late lunch, and although it wasn't busy, it took a long time for our meal to arrive. The black bean dip with veggies dish was pretty good, but the poutine was disappointing (not very hot, and the fries were downright soggy). Our server was pleasant, and the atmosphere was great. So overall, a pretty mixed... More

Food was delicious and well-presented. Staff very professional and attentive. Ordered caesar salad and steak and mushroom pie. Delicious and superior quality. Establishment advertises that food is mostly locally sourced. No loud annoying music at time of our dinner. Local pub on one side but not boisterous. Dining booths on other side. Main dish had a side of on-premise cut... More

Turns out, it was wing night. The delightful waitress was a pleasure to deal with. They had the usual staples on the menu, as well as some "gastro-fusion" foods. It was very clear that the caliber of the chefs were above average. Homemade hummus with fresh bread as I waited for my wings. Mine were sauced with the honey-hoisin sauce.... More

Had an enjoyable evening. Nice atmosphere, good food and a friendly server. Only complaint my husband had was that the fries were not very hot.

Turned away from our regular downtown haunts due to seasonal party bookings and live band entertainment (which we did not really want this time round) we made a return visit to The Fat Duck, realising we had waited surely long enough for post-renovation and were glad we did. What a nice surprise! Atmosphere was calm, quiet with those sports keeners... More

I have had good and excellent meals to so so meals here. Nice atmosphere. Takes a long time to get your meals, so don't be in a hurry.

We were pleasantly surprised by the delicious prime rib served to us at The Fat Duck on a Sunday evening in August. Since that evening we have been several more Sundays and each time we have more than enjoyed our meal. I am sure they have other wonderful meals but we just can't seem to bring ourselves to try something... More

I love this place. My favourite wings, of anywhere! There is a choice of fat/thin chips, either one of which is good. I can't rave enough about the au jus, which is made in house. Good host, always feel welcome. I also enjoyed the live entertainment on Thursday nights, but not sure if he's still there. We've been going for... More

Over the past few years the girlfriend and I have frequented this place quite often generally ordering the same three things every time: Ticos Nachos, House Crisps and a Rowe Burger. We absolutely loved these three items, but recently as of the new renovation we've noticed a severe drop in quality of the food. As such our most recent visit... More

We first tried the Fat Duck several years ago and loved it. We tried it again a few years ago and were sorely disappointed with the food. On our most recent trip we thought we'd give them another try just in case our last experience was an aberration. It wasn't. The food: mediocre at best. They do have a small... More
