It was our first visit to Lord Nelson and all three of us had very good meals-pasta, steak and lobster and sea bass. The wine was excellent as was the service. This is a very traditional decor that is well done.

This has been my favourite place to dine since 1985, but sadly, it is losing it's appeal. It seems that the ambience is going away, and that there is a move toward making it more appealing to the younger set. We were 4 for dinner, and our friends arrived before us. They were greeted warmly, then abruptly dumped when a... More

I took my husband here to celebrate his birthday and was not disappointed. Our waiter Scott made sure we had everything we wanted and prepared one of the best Caesar salads for us. Our steaks were tender and delicious.

I had Salmon for my main dish. I found I did not like the taste of the topping with the salmon.. The waiter was more than happy to take... More

There was nothing terribly wrong with our meals but for the price I expected more and impeccable service. The steaks were cooked to perfection but there were issues with service. The waiter was not as attentive that a $60 entree demands. Some of our party was late and despite being told I'll be right back to take your order, he... More

My family and I were at The Lord Nelson this past Saturday for a 5:30 pm reservation for a small dinner party of 6. I have had many dinners at their place including some business meetings so I am very much aware of your service and food standards and quality. I have a few things to note. I was trying... More

I love this restaurant. My parents used to take me here as a kid now I take my wife and child here. Its hands down the best fine dining in Burlington. Classic french/steak/seafood restaurant.

Our friends took us here as we were visiting from the USA, what a remarkable place! Impeccable service and quality, The food was some of the best we've enjoyed. Our waiter/server selected a red wine for us and it was amazing! So much so I'm looking to find it local where we live. This was a fantastic dining experience. Far... More

My group was warmly greeted when we arrived & the wait staff was very attentive. We were all very pleased with our menu choices. I went with the Lord Nelson special (2 beef tenderloin tournedos, with green beans, carrots & 2 tiger shrimp) which was one of the best dinners I have ever had! The peach raspberry cake I had...
