This restaurant is a real throwback to restaurants years ago. It looks far better than you would expect from the outside. Nicely decorated and very comfortable with lots of space between tables - a very good place to do business. The menu is also old...More

Okay, qualifier at the start of this review. The Lord Nelson is far, far above my pay grade and would not have seen us had it not been for the two $50 Gift Certificates I had been given. I have driven by this place for...More

I agree with most of the reviews on Tripadvisor. The Lord Nelson is an old school fine dining restaurant resting on its laurels. Don’t expect beautiful presentation on your plate, it won’t happen. Don’t expect a wide variety of options, it’s a steak and seafood...More

The food is amazing. Suggest the surf and turf. The steak can be eaten with a fork because it is so tender. Try the cherries jubilee for dessert. Ask for Patrick as your waiter for a great Lord Nelson experience.

Decided to take the prixe fixe 3 course menu offering for $57. The escargot was just ok, the sauce was watery with little or no garlic. The potato leak soup with smoked bacon had very little flavour. The main salmon dish with green beans and...More

Great dinner with lovely attentive service. Would like to see some female waiters though as it's all males waiting tables.
