Several folks in Hamilton recommended The Loft, so we were looking forward to enjoying lunch at this downtown spot overlooking the main drag. But we were disappointed in the food and the service. At least five minutes went by between our arrival at the restaurant and someone approaching us about being seated. In her defense, there was only one server working the entire restaurant, but it seemed strange to have to wait that long when there were several tables open. The menu had some interesting choices, but the food delivered to the table didn't match the menu description. It wasn't bad food, it just didn't meet our expectations. The location is great, the view is nice, but the dining experience leaves quite a bit to be desired.
