The food here is well prepared and seasoned. The wait staff friendly. We went on a Friday. The special was prime rib. It was very good-seasoned well. It could have been a little more tender. I also had the crab bisque. It was delicious as well as the Crème Brule. I would highly recommend this restaurant for dinner.

Had lunch on a Monday afternoon with clients. Place was nearly empty but it was just after the lunch rush. Good attentive server and good, but limited menu. One person in our party needed gluten free and they could help her. I needed something healthy and they modified a salad to meet my needs. It was quiet and a good... More

We took a dozen of our associates here for business presentation recently and we're glad we did. Our room was already set up when we arrived the wait staff was very clear about our special needs and menu. Service was stellar, food was extraordinary and classy. One small concern – there was no door to keep out the restaurant noise.... More

Having given the place a few tries it always seems to be disappointing food has a salty taste first few bites are good then the salt kicks in and it's difficult to finish the meal. The atmosphere has an opportunity to b a very nice place until you see the dirty air vents overhead and the white laundry baskets on... More

Went here for dinner with my mom while in town on business. The space is very nice. We liked the art and general layout of the space. We were seated right away at a both. We arrived around 6 pm on a Tuesday and were one of four tables. That said the service was slow for the entire meal. There... More

The Cream Sherry Mushrooms were okay, I wouldn't recommend them. They brought out 2 kind of icky weird bread rolls, blech and the butter that came with them was not the best either. The Steak and Shrimp Cavatappi was absolutely amazing-I took half of it home for lunch the next day and it was even amazing heated up in the... More

I took my wife to Cu on her birthday for a special romantic dinner. The food was great as always. The atmosphere is very good for a romantic night out. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. We had a very good time. This is one of Waterloo's best restaurants in our estimation. We will be back.
