We went out for MY engagement dinner, made a reservation for 8:00 and didn't end up getting sat until 8:45 and when we were sat, it was at a cramped table. The server started out good, making jokes and was knowledgeable about the specials that evening and then it went downhill quickly. He forgot to ring in three apps including... More

The Tasting Room has one of the most extensive appetizer lists I have ever seen in a restaurant. There is a great variety and they are great portions. I often go there to have a few glasses of wine, or a flight and then share several appetizers with friends. My favourite is their Tuna with wasabi aioli and the crab... More

Outstanding service staff, knowledgeable about the foods and wines served there. Wine flight is a great idea that allowed for some fun table discussion. Food was cooked to perfection. A meal enjoyed by both of us. Only dislike was a somewhat loud pump began operating. Although not deafening, it did disturb the conversation for a few minutes. Staff explained this... More

Overall the taste and presentation was good. I had the beef short ribs which were very good. My wife had halibut and had to pull 4 good size bones out. This was brought to the server's attention who said they didn't debone, it was done by the supplier. Nothing was done or suggested to correct the situation. Also wine list... More

We visited on a Thursday, fortunately not too busy and had a wonderful meal. Flavourful appetizers: bacon wrapped scallops, crab cakes and vegetable spring rolls, along with lovely herb bread with spicy maple butter. Then, the entrees arrived: tenderloin and roasted potatoes, piri piri chicken and beef short ribs with garlic mashed potatoes, all with a side of asparagus. Everything... More

Mine were all chardonnays and my husband had malbecs. All were quite different and all very good. I had the salmon special, which was good. My husband had the... More

Amazing food and service. What a treat ! My husband and I eat at the Tasting Room often. It's by far our favourite restaurant. A great selection of wine, delicious appetizers and entrees. The service is always excellent and we have never been disappointed. Make sure you call for a reservation, the place is always busy.
