We attended a wedding on a Friday evening and it was lovely. The ceremony was lovely, in a room off to the side of the restaurant overlooking the Lake. Its a very modern room with lots of windows so I'm sure on a sunny day it gets pretty warm, however it was overcast and not so warm the day we... More

Stopped off in Burlington en route to airport and came upon this restaurant. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find this impressive looking restaurant, overlooking the lake, to be much less expensive than we thought. Our meal and service were superb, a great last lunch on our visit to Canada

A small group had dinner here tonight. The atmosphere is nice beautiful view of Lake. Nice patio. This restaurant is extremely pricy for what you get. I had a steak served with small portion of tomatoes and a small bowl of "shared potatoes" for $38. House glass of wine almost double in price of other places. The meal was very... More

We went there for a friends bday dinner and we all loved it! Great location on the waterfront, great service and excellent food. They even brought us a complimentary round of champagne! Nice touch. Just know that it's a bit on the pricey side if you do apps, drinks, dinner, and dessert. You can check out the menu online before... More

The food here is excellent, staff friendly and very efficient. The view of Lake Ontario is wonderful summer or winter. The restaurant is close to everything, especially a nice walk along the shore.

I went to Spencer's on the recommendation of a co-worker since the weather was very nice. They said Spencer's had a nice patio, and they were correct. The location was the best aspect of the overall experience. A very nice setting overlooking a pool with views of the lake and a beautiful moonrise. Service was professional, if a bit slow,... More
