All you can eat salad and pasta.... that sounds pretty good, right? I've been to ESM's about 3 or 4 times (kept trying it "one more time") and every time I was thoroughly disappointed in the food, and service. I mean, come on, at least try to get one of them right!! Take your fat uncle Phil here when he comes to visit. It won't cost you much, and hopefully he doesn't care about the flavour of the food!

Visiting for a hockey tournament. Server was fabulous with having four kids with us. However ordered the steak rare came med rare and had to have a debate with manager over it, as I tasted it along with my husband and then sent it back. Apparently they follow a thermo cooking method so its personal prefrence to how one likes their steak. The bill came with the steak dinner still on it, my husband made reference and the manager decided to remove 15% from the bill, nope not happy with that so she then took off 25% ($5) the debating over it was very distasteful and had kids waiting in the car so we left. Called the next morning and low and behold got the same manager who still debated with me. The steak was tastless and over done, and having to debate over it again and again. Will never return to this or anyother East Side Mario's as their policies according to the manager are ridiculous.

Extremely noisy and poor service. Waited forever for someone to take my order and then the food wasn't anything to write home about. More for young families.

East Sides has always been great for large groups. Kelownas location didnt disapoint. We were 6 people and sat at a table definitely not meant for 6, but it was fine. Food was good and timely. Would return again.

Atmosphere is drab and boring. Servers are mostly slow and bored. Food was good but atmosphere made it not worth returning for.
