We all had a version of the fish and chips. We all enjoyed it. The batter was light, the fish was firm and not greasy.

I was there for lunch twice last week and each time it was very very good. Service was great . Oysters were delicious. I had the fish and chips one day and it was very good and fish sandwich the second day, except for way too much sauce on it, it was real good. I asked for my sandwich to have red tomato and onion instead of the other garnishes and the kitchen accommodated without question. That was very much appreciated. I wish I had gotten the name of the gal and gentleman that waited on us as they were both very knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely be back, especially for the oysters.
Thanks so much for two very nice lunches.

Happened upon this place and came in for an early dinner. Pleasantly surprised to find half-priced apps were on. Our server; Karli, greeted us warmly and went above and beyond throughout our meal. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and shared her favourite dishes. Service was prompt and friendly. When the kitchen was out of the calamari I ordered, Karli recommended the fish cakes - I’m glad she did because they were amazing. I also had the tuna poke, which was delicious with a nice balance of flavours. Great meal and great service.

Parking was difficult. Our waitress was excellent and the food was very good. They were out of some of their seasonal menu items, but that tells us that they prepare with fresh ingredients.

Booked this restaurant for a Valentine's Day dinner. We were a few minutes late arriving due to lack of parking but we were seated promptly. Our server, Calvin, was very knowledgeable and made adjustments to my wife's meal without any problem. Our neighbours at the next table were very friendly and we got chatting with them during our meals.

Superb food. The fish cakes areamazing as is the Tuna poke for starters. Really good guacamole and satisfying fish tacos. Friendly service and excellent pricing, especially if you go early for happy hour before 1800 when some starters and cocktails are cheap.

Over all the food was good but too spicy for many people on our group, and the chowder was all potato but not fish chunks...great flavor though !!!

Macaroni for Kids was a hit with the adults as well ...

Fish and chips amazing, just right amount of coating, temperature perfect. Shrimp were not properly prepped, but great taste. Wine is costly. Amazing staff, always laughing and pleasant not overbearing.

I had scallops and pasta - the scallops were good but unfortunately the pasta was extremely bland. Not worth the price.

The ambiance was nice, our server was great, the food was ok, I got pulled chicken platter and it was a little dry. The guacamole needed more seasoning. Enjoyed the cocktails they were good. Would recommend to a friend and would go back and try something different.

Was recommended to Dianne’s by a colleague so took my family there for lunch. The atmosphere is adorable and cozy with a really nice vibe. It was quiet quiet when we were there but it looked like it would be fun with a crowd. The menu is quite diverse for a fish restaurant which was great given our girls don’t like fish but there was plenty to keep them happy. The food was freshly made and very very tasty. Guacamole was made to order and the fish Sammie was absolutely delicious. My husbands chicken salad was massive and made for a take home second meal. My only comment might be that for a lunch the prices were a little high but given the quality, in the end worth it. I highly recommend.

Service and ambiance were great, and the charcuterie board was wonderful, but the main courses were mediocre, at best. Lobster mac n cheese was bland, scallop linguine was also lacking flavour, seafood poutine was watery, Piri Piri stew was only okay. Some of the mussels were "skunky" too, so we stopped eating all of them. Extremely overpriced for what you get.

We made reservations on-line with Open Table and were seated 10 minutes earlier than our booked time which was great. The service was spot on, and the kitchen was very quick. We had time to enjoy a locally brewed craft beer and rolls while we waited. The fish and chips as well as the lobster rolls were awesome! We stay downtown Kingston quite often, but this was our first visit to Dianne's. It will be on must visit list from now on.

My friend and I were celebrating her retirement and birthday. Except that our waitress either didn't hear or forgot our appetizer, everything was brilliant (although a tad noisy but that was to be expected). Our lovely waitress gave us a 15% table courtesy discount because we didn't receive our appetizer. That said, our meal was prepared so quickly, we really didn't mind. We both had the haddock and shrimp and it was the best fish dinner I have had since I was in Newfoundland (and that's saying something). I have already made my next reservation in December for 3 people so yes, I will definitely be back. Thank you!
