We have been coming to Cook Shop for over 30 years & with Lino the owner on the premises supervising & welcoming his guests the experience is so special. The relaxing atmosphere & prices are wonderful. An awesome place to take friends & family - everyone we have taken there LOVES it.

I have been here countless times over the years and it never disappoints! Their food is insanely delicious, and reasonably priced. The ambiance is perfect for a romantic dinner or a nice family night out. Their table side pasta blows my mind every time! The service is always perfect. You can't go wrong with this place!

If you want a restaurant which is intimate and romantic with consistently good food this is the place for you. My husband and I have been coming here for years and the food is always great. The portions are generous and the prices are fair. We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries here, as well as lots of other special occasions... More

We went for dinner last nite! Dinner was once again amazing from start to finish! Nice to see Lino back in great form! No one can top his culinary skills! The restaurant was full - very busy for a Tuesday nite. That speaks to the popularity and quality of the food and service! Always top notch!

The Cook's Shop is my favourite spot to celebrate a special occasion or a romantic evening. This was a first time going with a group of friends and we liked it even more. It was fun sharing the experience with friends. It was good that we all smelled like garlic afterwards together! I have never had a bad meal andd... More

We have been enjoying the fine dining and fabulous atmosphere at The Cooks Shop for many years. We enjoy the escargot and shrimp as an app and we split the lamb chops. The signature salad which comes with the meal and the garlic bread make it a perfect meal. We are always made welcome and special when we dine here.... More

We have been going here for few years now, and i's still as charming and romantic as ever. We always bring a small flashlight because the lighting is very low(adds to that warm and did I say romantic feeling?) Great food all the time,I love the rack of Lamb and the steaks are great. Wonderful service, just all around great... More
