Food worth the trip

We have been here a few times and the food has always been good. Unfortunately the location probably puts Hamiltonians off. The red pepper soup was great and the rainbow trout cooked perfectly. Buy a Groupon and try it...you will begladyou did.

Food was okay, nothing great and not a big assortment. Staff was nice. Not a horrible experience but wouldn't recommend to anyone.

The jerk chicken and butternut squash soup are awesome. We ordered steak and were disappointed. The chef cut both our steaks open and all the jucies ran out. For $30+ the chef shouldn't be cutting steaks open to see if they are cooked right.

I went to Anthony's recently with a few friends of mine and we absolutely loved it! When first gone in, it was quiet and we were the only ones there for the first bit. I understand how that is though as they are a fresh new family owned restaurant nooked into a building with other businesses. The decor inside is... More

We tried this restaurant through a discount deal and were so delighted to find this amazing treasure in an offbeat location in Hamilton's east end. We tried the Seafood trio for an appetizer and really enjoyed it. The pina colada sauce for the coconut shrimp was SO good and the crab cakes beat what we had tried in Florida on... More

1991 called and wants their menu back. I have no idea how this is such a highly rated restaurant on tripadvisor. I tried it due to the reviews and was not at all impressed. We waited to be seated and waited for drinks (which got mixed up). Then we waited for our food even though it wasn't all that busy.... More

Bang on tasty jerk chicken. Did not remember the other dishes. It was a little empty on a Wednesday dinner so it might be a little awkward. Ice wine martini was great too.

We came to this restaurant for father's day brunch because of the tripadvisor reviews. My family generally relies on tripadvisor but this time it could not have been more wrong! It was terrible. Even though we had reservations it took them almost 20 minutes to seat us. The place is dingy--especially the floors look like they have not been cleaned... More

We came out to celebrate a birthday with the family. We worked our way through the Tapas menu and it was delicious. After we had tried all of their Tapas, we moved onto the homemade pasta dishes. The seafood pasta with pesto was a great hit, as was the cheese ravioli. We then finished the meal with a lemon tart,... More

The positive reviews on trip advisor were bang on. Four of us went for dinner on a Saturday night. We had Caesar salad, the signature salad with pears and pecans, complimentary garlic bread and vegetarian spring rolls to start. Then we had jerk chicken, penne pasta with chicken and the special which was pork medallions. I cannot stress enough how... More
