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.

The only thing good about this place is its location. We keep going back hoping it will be a better experiernce but it never is. The food and overall service are below average. Save your money and visit Port 2 minutes away....much nicer patio, service and food!

Haven't been back here in a very very long time. the last time my chicken Kiev was raw in the middle extremely disgusting! The manager was very apologetic and gave us a 20$ certificate. So we decided to use it this weekend and go for brunch it was 5 of us and they told us they didn't have 5 seats... More

A note to "Unfortunate" I have never responded to any reviews, the reason is that all guests are entitled to write an honest review. Your particular review touched on an incident that occurred a very long time ago and was handled immediately. The reason for this response is not to defend our establishment but to highlight the distasteful and disrespectful... More

I have visited this restaurant a few times now. I have to say the location is beautiful, the staff is great and food is incredible! I hate reading reviews where people complain about waiting to be seated - this place is always busy so be sure to make reservation on those busy nights. I am a big steak person and... More

great location on the Pickering Waterfront. Food was good. We found the menu selection a little limited and dated.

Perhaps my expectations were set too high because of other reviews but I wasn't terribly impressed. We arrived for our reservation at 6 and had to wait in a fairly long line up as there appeared to be only one hostess seating people. When it was eventually our turn to be seated, we were shown to one of the few... More

Attended my brother in laws birthday brunch at Waterfront Dining on Sunday. Wonderful location next to many boats and yachts. Has a patio upstairs and on the main level. 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
