“Surprising”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Quite frankly, we stumbled across this restaurant and then checked the reviews,.There was one very ordinary recent review which made us sceptacle. However, because our son was at a nearby party we took the plunge. We were pleasantly surprised. The review mentioned the squid entree and the veal main. It commented that both was unpleasant and not up to standard. I had both. It was good. They must have had a bad night. We could not complain. My hubby had the King island sirloin, it was massive. There was ambience.....but only minimal as it doubled up for a breaky / lunch set up. The blackboard smoothie specials as you entered could have been omitted. It was a tad sterile and bright but the decor was modern and presented itself with cleanliness and sterility. The food was well presented and I was impressed and could not fault the serves or flavours - the service was a tad slow between entree and main. However, the 3 waitresses we dealt with were all friendly and personable. I must also comment on the 2 very young children that were present at another table. The parents did a magnificent job at entertaining them and making the rest of the clientele comfortable and in their own serenity. Thank you must go to them as well. I will definitely go back. I dined Saturday feb 23 .

“Great local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Audrie's wasn't too popular with the MacMaster's Beach population as they like to keep the place very low key with no commercialisation.
However, they did a good, tasteful job on Audriey's and it is hard to see that it impacted on the beach suburb in any negative way. It is on the main road- sadly for them not near the beach, but good for the locals- has enough street parking and is very stylish.
The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is excellent (somewhat unexpectedly!!), the wine list fine and the prices reasonable.
What more could you ask for??
The locals are quietly sneaking back- there is not much alternative except Bell's, which is pricey!

“Delicious meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We dined at Audrey's on New Year's Eve with another couple for the first time. We all really enjoyed our meals (not skimpy on portion size) & wine. The service was also excellent. Even though it is fully licenced, we still found the overall price to be quite reasonable. We enjoyed a reasonably priced Brown Brothers red wine & ordered another bottle, but as they were out of stock, they substituted with a similar variety & quality which was actually $14 more per bottle but they didn't charge us the extra. Very good PR. I've heard from friends that the breakfast & lunch was also delicious. We will definately return

“Delicious dining at Audrey's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I dined at the end of a 43 degree day but it was lovely and cool inside with a great ambience.
Fabulous entree and main courses-tasty and generous servings.
The waiters/waitresses were young, enthusiastic and very helpful(no attitude!)
Pricing very reasonable.
We will return.
