Fabulous dinner

We were able to be seated outdoors, which is a delight on these hot summer days. Our meals were excellent, and the service was very good. Very welcoming staff , very pleasant. We feel this is Magog's finest dinning.

After all the fabulous reviews we were pleased to find they had a table for the 6 of us. Our waitress was very abrupt and at times rude. She did not seem to want to be serving us! Four of the six meals were tasteless. Pasta portions are entree size. It was by far the worst meal we had on... More

Dinner on the outside patio was very good. The gazpacho tasted incredibly fresh and well seasoned. My traveling companion loved the macaroni and cheese (it's not what you think). Our waitress was very nice, though so she could have used just a little coaching. I don't know that it is worth traveling to, but I would recommend this restaurant to... More

Pinocchio has all the looks of a great restaurant. The service was very good, but sadly the place is all style and no content. The food was boring, and some of it was not even very fresh. The menu could be wonderful, but with 7 people, not one dish was worth anywhere near the price charged for it. Strawberries in... More

We went to this restaurant at the advice of our host at the bed and breakfast where we stayed. We received 15% off the bill for staying at Au Rivage Bed and Breakfast. We went for dinner and the food was very good pretty reasonable for an upscale restaurant. Cod and duck breast were our entrees. The duck breast came... More

Had lunch with a friend there yesterday. It's a very nice spot and the food is outstanding; service is very good but on a relaxed pace. This is not the place for a quick lunch, this is a good spot for a relaxed lunch with good company. Broad selection of wines by the glass is offered.

We had a late lunch with another couple and sat on the patio. Restaurant is very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. They have an excellent wine list, although a bit pricey. But the best was to come - the food was superb. All of us ate every bite. We were surprised at... More

We add a gift certificate which we used for a nice dinner. Service was slow but the lady was very nice. The food was good but not worth the prices they were asking for. Nice decoration very well situated in Magog but noisy as the kitchen is the type where you can see from where you were sitting

We ate at Pinocchio's for our last night in Magog. Our waitress was excellent. My wife had lamb and asked for it to be well done. It was not but the waitress took it back quickly for continued cooking. She offered to take mine back as well to keep it warm. When we got them back, they looked like completely... More
