The Waterstreet Cooker used to be my family's favourite restaurant to celebrate special occasions; birthdays, anniversaries, etc. I hadn't been there a over a year and decided to go for my anniversary. This restaurant is not what it used to be - it's more rundown, the staff don't care like they used to, and the food is not what I have come to expect over the years. To start, it took over 15 minutes for our server to come to our table to take our drink order. Our appetizer of poutine was soaked in gravy. I got the seafood pasta for my main and I asked for a rose sauce, however the sauce tasted more like a curry and it was a muddy brown colour - not very appetizing.
When we called ahead to make a reservation I told the lady it was our anniversary and she told me she would make a special note of that. However, not once throughout the night was our anniversary even acknowledged. I'm not asking for anything free, but what was the point of telling me a "special note" was made on my reservation when no one seemed to care. In the past there was a lot more attention to detail made by the staff, and my recent visit went to show how much this restaurant has changed.
After this visit I will not be returning, and for those looking for a nice restaurant in Burlington I would suggest maybe trying Spencer's, which is just down the road.
