I usually only write if we have a positive experience but there are so many places to choose from on Lincoln Ave. Nexxt (sp) is down the street and the food is much better.

It is a nice place to have a drink and see people walking in Lincoln Road. Food is not great and very little options to share appetisers while having drinks. The fried Goat cheese is really good (appetiser) though.

We came specifically for the music but were pleasantly surprised with the overall atmosphere. Friendly staff, amazing variety of music. Highly recommended for true music lovers!

Huge variety menu, this is a great place for lunch or informal dinner. The staff is exceptional. Caught in a downpour at lunch time our waitress issued us inside to an open table, provided free coffee and insisted on a plastic take home bag for my expensive camera. With many places to choose from in the Lincoln Road- Mall area, this one is the tallest, and worth the visit.

Have been having lunch at Van Dyke's for years and it's nice to note that the quality, service and value remain as good as ever. The outside terrace on Lincoln Road is a a great place to watch the world go by, the menu has extensive choices and the food remains very good. My friends tell me that the evening music sessions are also excellent and will try on the next visit.

Worth noting that Van Dyke is always busy while other restaurants in the area desperately try to hook passers by to eat at them. Only disappointment is that the nearby Girardelli ice cream place has closed...
