Wonderful restaurant in downtown and close to the Grand!

Outstanding place for a pre or post meal or get together for any occasion. The meals are all well prepared and they have an extensive selection of wines so you know it's going to be a great night out. It's usually busy before and after a play so you probably should make a reservation. Great place... read more

great wine, great food and great service. Melissa at the bar was soooo much fun to speak with. Only down side was the noise but that is what happens when you put wine and people together.

very extensive menu and the prices are very reasonable. I loved the pan seared scallop salad that is my favourite. It's a great lun ch for $13. I also love the AHai Tuna which melts in your mouth and now I make it at home with the chef's recipe. As long as you can find a place to park, you... More

We visit the Tasting Room about every 6 weeks, showing up after 930pm after the Grand Theatre gets out. The staff are always very accommodating with our later arrival. The kitchen is still ramped up and prepared to offer us anything from the menu. If she is working Nanette will offer us an intelligent selection from the extensive wine menu.... More

My daughter had a tournament in London and we visited this restaurant as some others were not open for lunch. The panko coconut chicken sandwich was dry and lifeless - very small - maybe a piece of lettuce on a mini bagette. The accompanying chips were greasy. The mussels in a curry broth were equal to that bought at Costco.... More

The Tasting Room used to be my favourite place to have dinner before the play. Somehow, in the recent months, this place turned into a roadhouse. My main complaint: the waiters and bartenders are unprofessional and rude. The service is mediocre and I saw a bartender rolling his eyes at customers... The place lost its charm ..... Such a shame...... More

intimate setting, courteous and efficient wait staff, tasty and varied menu. We've always enjoyed the flights of wine which add some fun to the experience.

The Tasting Room is amazing! There's only one small detail that is hit or miss - service. To me, service is key when having a dining experience, whether for an occasion or not. Usually, service here is great. Only once or twice have we been left wanting more from our server. The food is drool-worthy! Read the descriptions in the... More
