I had the mushroom chorizo pasta and my date had the scalops and cous cous and we were both really happy with our meals. the cheesy garlic bread and grilled calamari were amazing. needless to say, we had some great wine. our server...

I have been coming here for years but the last time I went I was a little disappointed. The waitress took forever to take our order and we waited for thirty minutes to receive our food. The mussels are awesome and the mushroom and chorizo pasta. My friend got the open faced burger which was not described in the description... More

Had lunch here on a beautiful Sunday, so they were busy. Service was quite poor. The food is pretty uninspired but okay - your standard pub type fare. The setting is awesome - great patio overlooking the harbor. Place itself looks like it could use a few touch ups. Would only return because of the location.

We were there on a Wednesday when they have a great deal on wine in addition to an open mic night. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, and great entertainment. A perfect night out! Not sure why the other poster gave this place such a bad review because everybody in the place that night seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely.... More

We were celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary with our daughter and siblings on Tuesday August 26, 2014, We were a party of six. We all agreed that because off the poor service, we will not tip her. She was inattentive. To get any service after waiting and waiting, my brother waited for her to pass by our table to give...

What a quaint and most lovely spot! A little hidden treasure in my opinion. Traveling south on Liverpool Road was like entering into another seaside resort town in another country! I wish we had been able to sit on the upper patio to eat, where the view would have been best, but with my mobility challenged mother in tow, this... More

Had dinner at this restaurant recently, based on the countless good reviews. Overall, I enjoyed it very much. The location is beautiful...especially as the sun is setting in the evening. The food was quite good; well-prepared and tasty. However, I expected more variety in terms of the seafood options and I also found the portion size to be a little... More

We went down to the Waterfront on Friday night to have dinner with friends, there were 6 of us and the service was excellent, Kelsey was our server and she was great. We all started off with drinks and shared some appetizers, let me tell you the oysters rock are amazing, a must try! Also the calamari is a go... More

My family and I visited the waterfront bistro on a beautiful day and sat on the upstairs patio! The view was beautiful, the food was delicious and the service was amazing! I can't wait to go back, especially for those delicious fish and chips.
