Wonderful lunch on the rooftop deck!

We stopped here for lunch and sat up on the rooftop deck. The staff was so very friendly & helpful - especially Charlie, our waiter (and son of the owner). We loved that this was a true family run business - and that they supported local farmers in getting their ingredients! There was a great... read more

Stopped off here while on a business trip. Rated Number 1 on TripAdvisor requires that I too comment on the experience. 1st. Used the restroom right away.. clean and a sea salt scrub. Nice touch. 2nd. Special of the day, seafood lasagna.. sounds different for me. Hey, why not. Side salad with higher end mixed greens, goat cheese and blueberry... More

My mother and I were in town for an art exhibit at the Alberta House. Based on other Trip Advisor recommendations, we chose to eat at Karl's Cuisine. We were not disappointed. Mom had the White Fish and I had one of the pasta dishes. The food was great. The service was great. The atmosphere was great. Because it was... More

The food is Great! Varied menu and reasonable. The meals are perfect for the price and worth it. Small, quiet atmoshpere. Local wines. You can see the SOO locks out the windows.

Chef prepared meals at reasonable prices. Daily specials that are unique. No production line food here. Quality ingredients, service is great and the view of the ship traffic through the locks is up close and personal. Highly recommended!

We ordered greek pizza, buffalo chicken Stromboli and Reuben soup. All were very good. I was unsure if we would like Rueben soup, but it was a very subtle taste and tasty! We will return again.

We stopped in for lunch on a Monday. When we arrived, there were only two other tables of customers. We were immediately seated and given drinks. Within 20 minutes of our arrival, the place was packed! This is apparently THE spot for lunch. I ordered the special, a chicken parm panini and my husband ordered a shaved sirloin sandwich. We...

Had an excellent lunch. Reuben soup so original and delicious! A crab cake panini - combination of favorites. Completely satisfied but then the waitress brought the dessert tray and I couldn't resist the homemade bread pudding (pecan and brandy sauce). Great food and great service - will definitely be back and recommend to everyone.

A wonderful chef prepares your dishes that are a work of art. The smoked fish dip was great. Chicken remulade, even my burger and fries, wonderful light and airy desserts. Very romantic. Can't wait to go back and sit on the upper deck that faces the soo locks in the summer. They make their own wine, but we did not... More
