“Overpriced - It's just Centrepointe”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Sweet potato fries were $9, and nothing special. $9...
We were going to get the nachos for sharing, but once you add standard items (chicken & guacamole), it comes to $22!!
Instead got the warm goat cheese & walnut salad. This one was $14 which is fine, but sadly the "fresh greens" were almost entirely iceberg lettuce which makes the salad look & taste cheap. If you're going to serve a salad with nice items like goat cheese & walnuts, use decent greens like baby spinach, arugula, microgreens, etc - and if you gotta use lettuce, use something like red leaf.
Not sure if & when these prices went up, but it's overpriced based on the restaurant's location and the simplicity of the food.

“wanted to add some more pics of the food”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

We're still going weekly. Place is still ok. Some servers are nice.. others ignore... actually you do get free refills on soft drinks sometimes.

“we go here for trivia practise on Tuesdays”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

pretty standard food. Right now they have the Halifax-style donairs which I like (except they should make the meat crispy on the grill). Some of the servers are excellent... others, not so helpful. Platter of fried stuff is ok. Pita and veggie plate is ok. I think soft drinks are $3 or $4 which is too high (no free refills). Most soups are ok (except one tomato soup was just like drinking a can of ragu). Fajita wrap is ok.
