Our server Michelle did a very good job of providing us with good service and keeping all our orders correct. Should mention that we were a party of 12. Food was... More

We spoke to the hostess Natalie who informed us about 25 minute wait to grab a spot on their roof top patio, She suggested to us we grab a spot at the bar and wait and she promised she would inform us when a table...

The food was good and overall service was good with a friendly and efficient hostess. We came on a Sunday night and had reservations inside and we were seated quickly. Good friendly atmosphere inside with friendly servers. Overall the food came in good time but we had some service issues. There were a couple of small items overlooked and had... More

I'm not sure if this is the right restaurant as it says 'Pickering' but we went to the Waterfront in Ontario on the side of the lake. The food was great but the service and seating was a little chaotic with servers not really connecting well with the person taking the table bookings at the front desk (outside). Cutlery came...

Came here with family for a great lunch! Staff were very friendly and very conscientious. Everyone had something different, and we all enjoyed our meals. We eat here often for the food & service. Staff always smiling and making sure you have everything you need.

I would normally never actually write a review but my experience at this restaurant was exceptional. I came in with a group of 6 people to celebrate my wife's birthday. We came on a busy Sunday night with reservations for inside the dining room, but we were able to move outside onto the patio. We waited for a patio table... More

I go here every summer with my friends and we love it. It's one of the few decent places in pickering that's not a chain restaurant. You can go here all year round, but I especially love this restaurant in the summer for its patio and views of Lake Ontario. Make sure you get a table on the upstairs patio... More

The upstairs private room was the setting for my 50th birthday party and it was absolutely PERFECT! The atmosphere made it a truly magical evening. The 50+ guess were all in agreement that the atmosphere, food and service were excellent. I had family members from Boston, Miami, New Jersey, and New York, who were very impressed with the location and... More

What a great find! Seven of us piled in for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon recently and enjoyed an excellent meal, great service and a very pleasant atmosphere. Beef ribs was one of the daily specials and boy were they good. Appetizers of calamari and bruchetta were delicious. The meal was finished of with sinfully good chocolate cake and creme... More
