Good food, great service.

We were there for my wife's birthday and we were very impressed by our server Christal. I had a complaint about what I ordered first. Christal immediately offered to re-do it or give me another entree. My second choice, the fillet, was excellent.

Good food but didn't wow me. The bread looked like toasted hamburger buns. The salad large pieces with the dressing on top not tossed. My pasta was ok nothing special. My husband ordered the 3 meats again nothing special. Double expresso was watered down.

Food is ok not bad not spectacular.. good... Price point average for what you get. Seems to be getting a bit tired in my opinion. Others I know disagree, but they seldom venture out of Windsor to eat.. so I would say they have a limited perspective. Again.. not a bad meal, not a meal I would think about and... More

You can't do better than the Cook's Shop. Been coming here for over twenty years for special occasions. The food is outstanding. All entrees come with chilled salad and homemade garlic ciabatta bread. Some entrees are prepared tableside. Very romantic, stone grotto ambiance. Great service. Reservations are a must, restaurant is quite small.

Love the tableside service, and great food. As soon as you walk in the smell of garlic, the best place for me to have a romantic dinner with my sweetheart. Love the cherries jubilee, finishes off a fabulous meal. Will go again for sure.

I have never written a review before because most places don't impress me enough to go to the bother of doing one but my dinner at this restaurant was spectacular, so I felt compelled to write one. My wife and I were visiting the casino last weekend and the hotel recommended The Cook's Shop as a great place for dinner... More
