“Main dishes are overrated, delicious appetizers and great service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

We read great reviews and had high expectations of Intermezzo. The appetizers (prawn/scallop dish and escargot) were delicious! Escargot was traditionally prepared and tasty. The prawn dish was an exciting fusion of traditional Italian with West Coast flare.

We eagerly anticipated the entrees however they were a huge dissapointment. Hubby had the beef teriyaki, nice flavor but way, way too much sauce. I had the creamy prawn pasta with a lobster bisque sauce. It tasted like plastic, and that was the only flavor it had.

The redeeming quality after the disappointing entrees was the server (Stephanie??). She was friendly, professional, knowledgable and cheerful. After sending hubby's dish back for more rice to sop up the sauce she brought a free dessert. The dessert was very nice (small Creme brule and chocolate mousse).

Overall, disappointed with this highly rated establishment. Food was lackluster (after the appies) and price was high.

“Always good, always delicious.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2012

I have been to Intermezzo many times over more than 10 years. There are very few places in the Valley meet or surpass this restaurant in service, food and atmosphere as well as general cleanliness. If you want a nice quiet place to enjoy exceptional food this is the place.

“Intimate and delicious.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

Intermezzo is hidden on a side street downtown, off the beaten path. It is for this reason that I never got around to dining there until recently. It did not disappoint. Very intimate, great for a date or special dinner. Great, attentive service. Good menu, I thought I bit on the pricey side, but worth it for the most part. For an appetizer, I had the prawn/scallop on grape nuts. I was a little disappointed with this.... portion size was very small and I must admit, I could've done a better job... it lacked flavour and the 3 smallish prawns were a little over cooked. For entree, I had the Moroccan lamb chops. Grilled perfectly medium rare, seasoned deliciously. Awesome. Dessert was a black and white creme brulee. Again, delicious. Decent wine list. I will go back and recommend.

“Delicious Meal and Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2011

One of the things that really stands out about our visit to this restaurant was the personable service I observed to all tables, not just ours. My father and stepmom are regulars and took us there once before. Again we found the menu to be quite varied and eclectic, not your average "Italian" restaurant. Wonderful choices and blendings of flavours made our meal worth writing about!
