We are locals and think this is one of the best places in town. Always busy and great service. Happy, fun atmosphere and a wide variety of food on the menu. The fish and frites (home made) are my personal favourite but I switch it up for a delicious salad instead of the frites most visits. Bring your own wine... More

I've been coming to the office for about 5 years, and let me just say I that this place is the perfect spot for date night or girls night. The atmosphere is gorgeous, candles on the table and not too dimly lit dining room. My boyfriend and I have not once received poor service, and everyone is accommodating. The Italian... More

A friend and I recently dined at The Office to try it out after hearing favourable reports. There was a good crowd for a Thursday night, which was re-assuring... We weren't disappointed. The service was very friendly, efficient, and not rushed. The menu includes a wide range of food choices (including gluten free and vegan) with something that should appeal... More

I will preface this review by saying I've been here a few times before and the food was previously of good value ( quality vs cost ), their menu still appears interesting, and as far as sleepy St. Catharines goes, a relatively happenin' atmosphere. However.... Ate here last night ( April 14th). I had the office burger which was a... More

I dined at this restaurant while visiting family, we were a group of 8. They had great selections on their menu; we started with the poutine, which was probably my favorite part of the meal. I ordered the lamb, it was good, but lacked flavor. We also all got dessert, which were good. Overall it was a nice night out.

I have been there twice for lunch and both times it was excellent. There are many menu options, the service is very good and fast, without making you feel rushed. I had the chicken spinach salad and the blackened salmon salad on my visits and both were excellent. Definitely worth a try!

Tapas plates and comfort food are the main fare of this downtown restaurant. They offer lots of craft-style beers (if you like that - I don't personally). Wine selection is ok, but they do offer bring-your-own-wine option which is quite nice. Food selection is trendy, quality is only ok. I tend to agree with others that this restaurant was once...

Dined at this location recently with a couple of friends for lunch, absolutely charming location, great staff and cozy atmosphere. Definitely recommend this location, and bring a bottle of wine!

My husband and I have always loved the Office, and have been numerous times. We just got back from dinner tonight at the Office and am quite certain that we will not be returning. he had a burger which was rather tasteless, and his French fries were so salty he only ate them because he was hungry! My steak sandwich... More
