The servers at this very busy and popular steakhouse are efficient, knowledgeable, and very professional. Matrini's are extremely cold and right "on". The menu is varied with many choices, but the steak is excellent.

Love this place. The combo of prime shires and mushroom risotto is to die for. Its a nice ambiance, but casual enough that if we bring our kids its not uncomfortable. The food is always high quality, and the staff is clearly experienced. We love...More

Just returned from here and I can honestly say I just had the best steak I’ve ever eaten. I had the 10oz fillet mignon and although it was pricey at CAD55, plus another 6 for the peppercorn sauce it was a superb cut of meat...More

Really good tasty steaks! Reasonably priced, good choices of side dishes offered. Great service offered from the time we stepped in, they were even kind enough to turn down the outside music so we could hear each other. Great view of the lake. Want a...More
