“Excellent Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

The. ambiance is nice. The staff are very friendly. The food is delicious. It is located in an industrial area but that really shouldn't matter. Be prepared to pay for the quality food though. It is not cheap.

“Would never go back.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

We had a reservation for 8 and waiting half an hour for our table. Unbelievable. Classy? I was offended and will never go back. Ambiance was ok at best. People swearing. No one happy to wait. Go somewhere else.

“Get in, sit down, eat and get out”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

It was either Zorro's or Ruth Chris, we decided on Zorro's. Dedicated coat check personnel was a nice touch, however turn down the heat in that room, it felt like a sauna. The evening we dined on the restaurant was quite full and somewhat on the loud side. The decor like most has pointed out is quite dated. I found the decor and ambiance to be okay.
The good:
- price is reasonable based on quantity of food,
- Scallops that came with steak and scallop is good
- we were 15 mins early for our dinner reservation and there was a table ready for us

Needs improvement:
- rushed service. The waiter first came around for our beverages. We did not know what was available because we were not given a wine list or menu with beverage. The waiter came back for food order. Order taking was rushed. Waiter did not offer toppings for baked potatoWe ordered our entrées and was deciding on the appetizer, but the waiter just made us felt like he wanted to get the order to the kitchen. We skipped the appetizer. Overall the serving team was not personable.
- serving team lacks grace. For example, when pouring water into glass located farther in the table the waiter should pick up the glass and pour. The glass was not moved or picked up and water dripped onto the menu. The steak and scallop dish came with rice and fries was requested at time of order, the waiter was no where to be found. No one came by during our meal to ask if everything was ok.
- prime beef regular cut is good portion. The regular cut is about 1.5" thick and 6"x6". The beef was cooked medium as requested. However, the meat was tough. The knife provided for the prime beef and sirloin was also of low quality.
- sirloin steak was cooked medium as requested, again the meat was tough. Overall, both entrees were mediocre at best. The quantity of the entrees were good, but the quality and overall value was low.
- we did not order dessert as the service and meal was not to our satisfaction. Also, we were not presented with any dessert menu. We were in and out of the restaurant in less than 1 hr.

“Have the Roast Beef - best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

They make the Cesare Salad the old fashioned way - at the table with fresh ingredients. Lots of garlic.

The Roast Beef is the star of this place. Thick Cuts - cooked to order and served with Salad, Potato and rice. They give you garlic bread and a tray of pickles and olives as well.

The decor is a throwback to the 50's but who cares. The service is old fashioned and great.

It is worth the drive to Mississauga.

“Excellent "old-school" Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

They've been around for 30+ years and are doing everything old school... in other words, the right way! Waiters in tuxedos, table-side caesar salad (which is out of this world, the best I've ever had), great service and great food. Yes, the decor is dated, but it adds to the charm and character of the restaurant. The steaks have always been excellent, nice char on the outside and perfectly cooked inside. The veal parmesan is great too. The complimentary garlic bread is awesome - yes, dripping with butter but that's what makes it a scrumptious treat! Very reasonably priced drinks too. Overall just a really great meal, and we enjoy the experience every time - and we go a lot!
