“Perfect Flavors”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We arrived at a few minutes before noon on a Sunday and were seated immediately. Friendly staff all around. Fun bathrooms too, a mini tv in each stall.
Our four dishes were all beautifully prepared and we ate every morsel. The Flavors were perfect in the BBQ burger, ravioli trio, pork lettuce wraps, and shrimp pasta. The presentations were thoughtful too, but it is the fresh and delicious food that will ensure our return.
By the time we left, the restaurant side was filling up. Lots of room on the lounge side though.

“Excellent ambience”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a franchise of the same name restaurant in Vancouver. Very popular with the young crowd and the food is quite inventive and fresh. It has one of the best patios. Service is fast and attentive.

“Delicious.”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We were lucky enough to drop in to Cactus Club at 5:30 on a snowy Sunday, so we had no waiting issues at all and were seated immediately. I have attempted to eat at this place before when the wait time was upwards of 2 hours (we didn't bother waiting), so we considered ourselves fortunate to get in.

Love the atmosphere of Cactus Club - modern decor, slightly more upscale. We had wonderful service (thanks Amber!) and the food was delicious. We started with the goat cheese flatbread (yummy take on bruschetta) and then had the pesto quesadilla and the ribs. My boyfriend raved about the ribs and he pretty much inhaled them, then licked the plate clean. My pesto quesadilla was delicious - a refreshing take on the usual although I found I'd had enough more than enough pesto by the end of the meal. I also had a side of their sea salt fries which were absolutely fantastic - I'd come back just for those!

We will definitely be back.

“Great restaurant with a waiting-line issue”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I love this restaurant. Each time we've been here the food has been fantastic. The drink specials add a nice touch and help keep the price down. The only repeated negative for this restaurant is that if you don't reserve (up until 5pm or 6pm) then you'll stand in line for quite a while (can be as long as an hour to be seated). My advice, go early and reserve or find another restaurant that accepts reservations.
