The food and restaurant was good but a bit pricey. The servers were friendly but mixed up my steak, Medium well done with my Boss' medium rare and this was not good. The overall rating is good as the staff was friendly and attentive except for the mix up. I personally only at there as the company was paying or... More

Very good rating by all. This was an 80th Birthday dinner with a range from 8 to 80 years of age. Very wide selection of meals to suit all ages. Good wine list.

Another random pick from trip advisor, which turned out to be a epic pick! Instantly turned into one of my favourite places in Kitchener/Waterloo to eat. 5/5 for service/food/drink/atmosphere/great establishment.

Excellent from top to bottom. The food, atmosphere and service will make this a favorite for you and your visitors. Three areas of food service---Italian, lounge and dining areas. May need a reservation depending on day and time.

we have been many many times over the years and we have always had great food and service. we have never had a bad experience. i would highly recommend as a fine dining establishment. the wine seems to be a little on the high side for a bottle.

We picked the Charcoal for a couple of reasons, expected reliability from such a local treasure, and we hadn't been here for a number of years. We were a little early for our reservation, and were directed to Martini's for a drink. Service was prompt, nibbles appeared to made in house, but my martini was a little disappointing, as it...

Staying at the radisson this was the closest place for dinner. It didn't look NUH from the outside but inside was fantastic! Great bar. Awesome food. Friendly service. Looks like an upscale place inside and food and service to match!

Great service, great food… I feel like these words don't quite do this place justice. Ate here while staying in the hotel upstairs. Suddenly wished I was staying here for a week so I could try everything. Be sure to try the signature wine blend(s) (I loved the red!).

Good restaurant and the waitress was very professional. However we have waited for 45-60 minute to get our meals, worth the delay but still it's a long time to wait for a rare steak... I will recommend this place, next to the Radisson hotel, nice bar, good food...
