Great Decor, Good Food

Often booked with large business groups or Xmas parties, so can be crowded. Love the decor and bar, super cool. Been a few times food ranges from good to great, would recommend but check ahead to avoid being stuffed into a corner due to large booked groups

Had occasion to visit the Boiler House Loft for a friend's wedding recently. Food was terrific, service amazing, venue gorgeous. Accessibility, lacking. We had to navigate the chaotic Christmas Market & the entrance to the venue was invisible. This restaurant has everything going for it, except the obvious. We ended up wandering endlessly through the crowds, getting wet in our... More

Tables too small - tiny round tables. We had 6 people and had to put two together like a figure8. Food was expensive but good. The restaurant was so noisy that we couldn't hear each other talking. We decided not to have dessert but go elsewhere. After paying the cashier and leaving a generous tip the head waiter ran after... More

Best steak I have had in years. The restaurant is charming and the patio is the largest in the city. I will be back.

The place was beautiful but the food wasn't that great. Had the gnocchi and it didn't even taste like it. Our server was really friendly and explained the menu.

I went with a friend for dinner and we order a steak plate and a fish plate. The service was good but when the food came...totally destroy the experience. The plate has bad presentation. The fish looks good but when I put it in my mouth, one can immediately tell that it was not fresh (actually very fishy) and badly... More

really beautiful atmosphere...if you're lucky the bartender will tell you all about the history of those great shelves behind the bar. it's a little dim upstairs, so bring a flashlight...the evening band is a nice touch. washrooms are kind of crazy little cubicles you have to experience to understand. service is good, not great. food is worth the wait.

The buidling and decor really is beautiful. Mountain high ceilings, contemporary decor, warm. Love love the patio with its comfortable couches, torches and outside bar. Its worth a visit even just for the Distillery District and history of the building. The menu is standard and a little pricy. Good wine list though. Portions aren't large but perfect if you are...
