“Horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

I went to Deerhurst for a girls weekend away and was very disappointed. This is my 7th time going and i am not sure if i will return after this. When my friend and i got to the restaurant instead of being seated right away, the servers decided to have a chat for about 5 minutes while we stood around. Although they had no issue seating the elderly couple asap in front of us. The service was slow, food ok and not much selection. It took us over 1 hour and 30 minutes just to get 2 appetizers. The waiter was nice but not very energetic, and did not know the menu and what was in the food. When we returned for breakfast as it is the only restaurant open at this time of year it was even worse. We were seated right away but it took our waitress over 1 hour to bring our bill. She did not even have to do much as we had the buffet. Then our bill was wrong and it took another 30 minutes to get a new one. I mean 3 hours just to eat breakfast is ridiculous. I mean i even have a preferred membership card and well i guess that did nothing for the service. I know the waitress has worked there for years but they need to retrain or monitor their serving staff.

“Less than expected!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Here for dinner with friends, expecting a wonderful experience, got all dressed up. Its a large room with high ceilings - not a cozy feel. Lots of art for sale as you walk the hallway. First thing you see is a commercial bug light on in the central servers area. Service was very good, friendly and fast. Nice varied menu - only thing is they were out of AAA steaks and the duck. Turns out the salmon is frozen despite the price being charged. Food was good overall. The burger, steak on a bun, lamb and liver were enjoyed. Given the price however was expecting a little more, the resort is a solid 4 star but the eclipse was not there that night.

“Good food but service lacking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner while we stayed at the resort.
We were first seated in the centre of the restaurant despite having asked for a window seat when we made the reservation. Luckily they had one available to seat us at. The view out the window is so pretty so try to get a seat on the edge!
It took a while to be seated but the food came really quickly after we ordered it, which was nice. We had our dirty plates for too long and should have had a water top up but our waitress was friendly. The decor was really nice - cool ceiling and great views.
We enjoyed our meals but the lamb curry was disappointing with fatty pieces.

“it all depends on the server”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We dined at Eclipse on successive nights, and the food was excellent each night. The duck, lamb and deserts were all delicious, although the salads could use a little more dressing. However, the server can make a world of difference. The first night, our server (Jen) offered helpful suggestions, was very friendly, was there when we needed her, and the dinner was well paced. The next night, with a different server (although we requested Jen) was a different story. The restaurant was busier, but the helpfulness, pace and friendliness of our server all left something to be desired, and we were left waiting for long periods of time towards the end. The first night we thoroughly enjoyed dinner and left satisfied, the second night not so much.
