We visited here twice, once for lunch with a tour company and the next day we returned to enjoy some Lobster Poutine and wine on the patio. Service was awesome the evening we returned! They even brought a sample appie before the poutine which was as scrumptious as the Lobster Poutine! The day before this we had lunch here also, but inside. The service was good and we had the chicken club on baguette which was good, and the salad it came with was the best, but it came with a side of fries that were in a tiny little bowl and there was no ketchup or the waiter never offered any or asked if we needed anything else. But the next night when we returned for Lobster poutine the waiter was simply fantastic.

Great patio right next to Shaw Festival Theatre. We dined there several times in late afternoon and far from the maddening crowds of lunch and dinner! there is a different menu which offers a great selection for late repas.
The lobster poutine is worth the visit!!!
Great service with casual people watching view of theatre goers!
Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and excellent food offerings!

We went here for breakfast and were very pleased. The eggs benedict was done perfectly and the service was attentive. The young lady kept the coffee flowing. Eating on the patio was very nice because you're able to enjoy all the flowers in the area.

Went there to celebrate our 30th Anniversary yesterday. Had a nice atmosphere and waitress was prompt and polite. Expected a little more from the meals. Had the cheese plate as an appetizer. The cheese selection was good and the berry compote was excellent. The Caesar salad was ok nothing special though. The parmesan crisp on the side was a nice touch but needed more dispersed in salad maybe the flaked kind would have been better. They went a little heavy on the dressing. The appetizer prawns were delicious and the accompanying salad was nice. The chicken dinner with sweet potato/mushroom hash was flavourful but the potatoes were crunchy not soft and sweet. Chicken was moist but lacked flavour. Didn't stay for dessert. Was expecting a bit more for the price point.

Our waiter (Jay) was very professional and efficiaent. He took care of all our needs, without being pushy. When time allowed he engaged us in light conversation, but left us alone when we needed to be left alone. Jay also waited until we had a chance to actually eat some of the meal before asking how things were; somthing most servers in the US need to learn. We had the poutine, I can summarize that in one word, AMAZING. When in Niagara by the lake, Ontario, do not, repeat DO NOT miss this place
