My mother-in-law and I treated ourselves to a Mother's Day high-end restaurant meal. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent as is the ambiance of Quattro. The service was a little slow, but this allowed us to relax (we weren't in a hurry) and enjoy our wine and appetizer. We both enjoyed our evening at Quattro and will return another time. I found the prices to be comprable to other restaurants serving this type of menu.

We visited Quattro for the first sitting of the Mother's Day brunch (May 12th, 2013, in a raging snowstorm!). We have been (and usually go) to the View at the Delta, but wanted to try Quattro's this time around.

First impressions were disappointing as the sitting we booked for is advertised as a 11am start. Arrived pretty much on the stroke of 11 and there was this huge lineup to get seated. We're not overly patient people.

We were seated and quickly served coffee, which was divine. The layout could have been better; there were people seated between the prime rib station and the cold cut/fruit area.

There were two waffle making machines near the breakfast food area, both hot. No sign of anyone making waffles, no pancake/waffle mix, so we walked on by. We took up a plate of bacon, sausages, perogies, and home fries, then went to the hot meat station to get some ham and prime rib.

The bacon was somewhat greasy, the sausages had a definite "off" taste, the prime rib was delicious (I like it nice and rare and that's how it was served).

We asked the server about the waffles and we were informed it was a make your own waffle station and that they had just brought out the waffle mix.

Went back to get some more prime rib, at which point the roast had been carved towards the centre; now I like rare beef, heck, I even eat raw beef sashimi, but the middle was still cold and definitely raw, which was a bit of a downer.

Didn't have what seemed to be the only dessert offering, which was white cake.

The bill came very quickly and we were advised that the gratuity had been added; it was a 20% markup! It was only myself and my wife, so adding the gratuity seemed surprising, presumptuous and expensive.

Overall it was OK at best, very expensive and very disappointing if compared to the View.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback on your first brunch at Quattro. We are happy that there were some things about your experience that you enjoyed. Certainly, restaurant layout and seating process will differ from place to place and there is always opportunity to improve. The kitchen will discuss your comments regarding the buffet items and we will take your remaining remarks under review. A standard gratuity is added for large parties and for special occasions allows us to work more efficiently and accurately when dealing with a full event. Our apologies on the elements of the day you did not enjoy. We hope this will not deter you from joining us again at Quattro Chophouse + Bar

The Quattro is a hidden jewel in the Comfort Suite! We almost wanted to skip dinner until we saw the menu sitting on our table in the room and decided to give it a try. We had such a great meal that I decided to write a separate review for the Quattro. The deco is modern and hip; we probably had the best duck dish ever at Quattro! My boy friend had no problem finding gluten free items on the menu. What tops it was some fantastic live music from a local Jazz band!

Hello FreddyMapple. We must be doing something right to get two reviews from you for both the hotel and the restaurant. Your review put us in such good spirits, our Executive Chef wanted to reply personally;

"Hi Freddy, So glad you enjoyed your evening with us at Quattro! We do take into account customers with gluten allergies when planning new menus since the request for such items continues to grow and I am happy that your boyfriend found something that piqued his interest. We have live music every Friday and are always trying to promote local groups and musicians like the jazz band that was playing during your visit. We hope to see you again on your next trip through Sault Ste Marie. "

Paul Chiappetta

Hey there CIBY! Short, sweet and well said. Thanks for the great review! There is nothing more satisfying than a happy group of seven. Well, except of course, another visit from your group - perhaps with family and friends. Hope to see you again soon!

Quattro is pricey but you pay for what you get. I have never been disapointed with the food ever. As a guy the wait staff are not hard on the eyes either. great steaks and wild Mushroom risotto is to die for. Keep up the great work!

Hi Robert! We appreciate to hearing feedback from our guests, especially when they have dined with us before and continue to be pleased with what is coming out of the Quattro kitchen. Our steak and wild mushroom risotto are two of our infamous entrees. We are so happy you enjoy them both and hope next time you are in town you will dine with us again.
