What a great lunch experience! We found the portions to be quite large. My wife and I started with a Charcuterie Board which made up of House Made Pâtés & Terrines, Cured Meats, Pickled Vegetables & Hot House Tomato Jam. We were absolutely thrilled with the overall quality and diversity of the plate which was accented by onions two ways...pickled... More

This past Sunday my wife and I visited Escabeche looking forward to indulge in a full dinner. Sadly, all three courses were very disappointing in presentation, quality, and flavour. The tab was just shy of $200.00 (including 3 drinks) and If the VALUE of a Wendy's Bacon Junior Cheeseburger comes in at about an 7/10 this meal register at about... More

We stayed at the hotel and ate breakfast here the first morning. I got the French Breakfast Pastries and my husband the buffet. Even though the restaurant was not busy, I had to wait 20 minutes for my food which is all premade and uncooked items! My husband finished eating before I got my food. So I had ordered the... More

We had dinner here on June 26,2014. The food was bland and overpriced. I had the summer squash salad which consisted of a few sprouts and strips squash and would fit in the palm of my hand. The chicken was dry and bland and served over cold potato cubes and mini tomatoes. If the chef wants to serve "pretty food",... More

This was our second visit ......Mature, entertaining staff (our server was a delight).....excellent food at solid value....local, Ontario produce incorporated into the menu.....good wine selection and the view of the passing crowds with the sun filtering through large "conservatory" windows adds charm.

Hello AJTraveller2014, Thank you for your wonderful review. Executive Chef Chris Smythe and his culinary team rolled out the new summer 2014 menu a day before you dined with us at Escabeche. We are thrilled you enjoyed the food! We truly believe in a 100km local radius when purchasing our produce and proteins for the menu. Thank you again, and... More

The hotel is so awesome, with an old air charm. You automatically expect a higher level of dining experinece, and I must say I was not very impressed. The appetizers were quite good, but the main course ( I ordered lamb shanks) was quite bland and tasteless. The restaurant was so noisy, it put a pub to shame. The coffee... More

This very high priced restaurant served very tasteless and ordinary food. The entrees were nothing special to justify the price. We don't mind paying more for excellent fine cuisine but this was not the case. The service was slow. We arrived at their recommended reservation time to make our show and did not have time for dessert or coffee. We... More
