So nice to enjoy the outdoor patio on a beautiful summer evening. We are return customers, and as usual, the menu was creative with lots of options, and the food was fabulous (we had the wild rice and the agnolotti dishes - and would have them again). Seems to be an undiscovered jewel. All our friends that we've taken here have loved it. Highly recommended.

Every time we go it is better than the last. Our server this time held amazing conversations with us and the tables around us. Found a way to connect with everyone and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the seasonal menu. I wish I remembered her name, she went to Acadia haha! Michael is always a pleasure to see as well, my parents always request him as he is so wonderful! The food was outstanding as usual and I can’t wait to make another trip back! Love love love this place, keep up the outstanding service!

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Damas, and it was an extraordinary culinary experience. From the moment I walked in, the ambiance was inviting, with warm lighting and elegant decor that set the perfect mood. The service was impeccable, with attentive and knowledgeable staff who made excellent recommendations. The highlight, of course, was the food. Each dish was a masterpiece, beautifully presented and bursting with flavor. The chef’s creativity shone through in every bite, combining fresh, high-quality ingredients in innovative ways. The Kanufa Shrimps with honey was a standout, with its exquisite blend of textures and flavors that left me savoring each mouthful. The dessert was equally impressive, offering a perfect sweet finish to an unforgettable meal. Overall, Damas exceeded all expectations, providing not just a meal, but a memorable dining experience. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to indulge in culinary excellence.

We tried Earls after a long day of touring Niagara Falls. We enjoyed our drinks and our meal. We tried the Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl and the Chicken Tacos. Both were very good! This is a real happening place with a big crowd on a Friday night. I would definitely recommend trying!

The glow up is definitely an eye catchy drink! The addition of blue spirulina is a bit sour, and I found the volume of the drink a bit too much, but overall, worthy of the visit!

My friend and I really enjoyed our meal at Fresh on Queen St W. The food was delicious, our server was very pleasant, and the prices are quite good for the quality and amount of food. There was some ambient music, which was a bit loud, but we could definitely hear each other talk without yelling. The only other thing is that I would have liked is if we could have sat on an outside patio instead of an inside one - I prefer as much air exposure as possible. I would, for sure, recommend this restaurant!

We had a wonderful meal on the patio and tried some new dishes. I would love it if there were pictures of the dishes we could access because the descriptions on the menu don’t do the plates justice. That’s just feedback. The experience was excellent. The move to the new location was an absolute win! The view is also unbeatable!

Great first visit at Neverland. We enjoyed the aesthetics and the staff were great. The food was mostly well made. I found the white bread used in the sandwiches to be very dry and stale so that was disappointing. I've been to many afternoon tea venues and know that it shouldn't have been like that. Hopefully it was just an off day as my expectations were higher.

I was treated to a wonderful vegan dinner to celebrate my nineteenth birthday! My table and I enjoyed our meals and I also experienced an espresso martini for the first time which was delicious and felt very fancy. Wonderful service as always, friendliest servers I have ever had the pleasure of ordering from in any restaurant experience.

It was good as always. I had the cobb salad, which I love, and my companion had the bulgogi sandwich with fries, which they said was good. Service was friendly and attentive. The music was a bit loud, especially for lunch time, but I mentioned it and they dialed it down a bit. PMK remains my favourite restaurant in London, Ontario.

We had the opportunity to celebrate my birthday dinner in the private dinning room and it was an absolutely amazing experience! Our server Robert was amazing he made us feel like family and made my birthday dinner one to remember. Everything was fantastic from the food ambience and service. We came in with a group around 10 people we had an assortment of pastas, pizzas, seafood and charcuterie, all was to die for! The sommelier made fantastic selections and we had an assortment of wine at the table and all paired perfectly with our dishes. I will always come back for any special occasions and even date nights! If you have the opportunity to dine here please ask for Robert because I couldn’t have asked for a better waiter! 5/5 definitely! Everyone loved Terroni!
