Food excellent

My Mother and I went here for a late lunch one afternoon. Very relaxing. Good portions and good variety of food offered on the menu. I'd recommend this place. I can't wait to return.

Ambiance is very nice but the food was disappointing overall. We heard it was a great place to eat but we found the food hit and miss. The appetizers were very tasty. We had escargot and mussels and found them fantastic. We were really looking forward to our main courses. I had a steak Oscar which had little seasoning and... More

Went here one evening for dinner with about 12 family and friends. Service, atmosphere and food were all very good for a casual sit down restaurant

This was my second visit. The menu is terrific, not too extensive but a good varied selection to satisfy any preferences. The food is delicious and presented very well. The decor is semi-formal so you are in place whether you choose to dress casual or dress up for a special occasion. We were there on a Saturday night and enjoyed... More

Restaurant is clean and atmosphere is enjoyable inside. One turn-off of this restaurant is the location; due to the fact that it is attached to a hotel. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good restaurant to attend with parents or in-laws. Menu consists of regular North American entrees. Price is in the mid-range.

The food was decent quality, though no more than that. What cannot go without comment is the rude waitress (Kristin). Attitude from the beginning. At first wrote this off to a bad day and I realize waitressing is a hard job. But when we inquired about the participation of this establishment in Ontario's excellent Take Home the Rest program (patrons... More

The Grape & Olive was a pleasant surprise; especially considering it's attached to a Best Western. Nervous first impression, especially when the place was almost empty at 6:00PM. A steady stream of patrons followed and by 6:30PM the place was almost at full capacity. Walking in the front door you are greeted with the smell of a typical "cheap hotel".... More

We head to this restaurant for special occasions, and for fabulous dinners.... we always leave with a smile! The waitresses are efficient, attentive, and very helpful..... couldn't ask for more. The menu is varied, and the Head Chef is very talented.... the presentation is always 5-STAR and the flavours are yummmy! It's quiet, comfortable, and simply a wonderful dining experience... More
