We were seated promptly on a very busy night. Our waitress was prompt and friendly. She, and other staff, checked on us several times. Our food was good. This was my third time at the is restaurant in the last year and half. I would return.

Above all, a fantastic restaurant with a uniquely wonderful, very relaxing ambiance within. Friendly, attentive staff. Excellent menu selection. Consistently 'delicious' food! I especially enjoyed the House Made Chuck Burger with accompanying Salad. Others in our group loved their Eggs Benedicts with Bacon/ Ham on toasted English Muffins with House Made Home Fries. Magnificent!

It is a "fancy" restaurant, so expected high prices for humble portion sizes. The ambience is the best part, it is a very nice looking and feeling restaurant. Our food was underseasoned. Server was friendly and prompt.

The pizza tasted the same, if not worse, than the frozen pizzas in my freezer. If you want pizza I believe dominos delivers, better than going to Megalos. We had to ask our waitress for drinks and then dessert. While she kept asking us if we want the bill. She barely spoke to us and we did not have time to ask her about the menu or wine selection. She made us feel extremely rushed. It was terrible service which perfectly matched the terrible pizza. The only thing good was the decor and great cheesecake! So in essence, go for the dessert. But make sure it's take out.

Everything was tasted, service was good.

The only reason I gave a 4 star on food was simply because we didn’t like the deep fried cheesecake as it had way too much PB for our taste. Everything else was great though.

Good vibe and friendly staff. Would recommend for sure

A lovely Valentine's Evening menu, accompanied the main dinner menu, with alternative choices. Our party of four, was once again, 'immensely impressed' with the consistent caring and attentive service of 'all staff' as they passed by each table. Without hesitation we all found our evening relaxing and truly enjoyable. Superb dining, excellent wine list, incredible dessert selection in showcase. A memorable evening!

A warm, inviting restaurant ambiance combined with caring, attentive service, and delicious, attractively plated food makes this a reoccurring favourite spot for weekend brunches with various friends, and couples. Thank you, Megalos, for consistently making 'all' customers feel so welcome!

excellent service, good food. I felt the sauce with my chicken had pre-prepared bacon and it was just added instead of being incorporated into the making of the sauce. The bacon portion was actually cold compared to the rest of the dish. I am keto and was accomoded no problem when I requested extra green beans in lieu of potatoes.

Highly recommend - a consistently outstanding, spotless restaurant which is conveniently located in downtown Kingston by The Grand Theatre. Excellent menu, plate presentation, relaxing interior atmosphere, and attentive service! Our group of two couples, for Sunday brunch, will definitely be returning soon for a dinner meal too!

We’ve been to Megalo’s many times before and always enjoyed the experience. However, this time we were very disappointed. We ordered the scallops appetizer and pizza, both to share. After 30 minutes, enduring the very loud noise created by other guests, we asked. “Oh! I thought you wanted them served together.” After another 10 minutes our appetizer arrived. It was delicious, but barely lukewarm. Shortly after our pizza came - tasty enough but it was impossible to cut with a knife. As we seated near the kitchen ( our request) we could see three flames from time to time. Unfortunately, the smoke spread into the dining room causing our eyes to hurt and water. Overall, a disappointing evening.

I always enjoy going to Megalos. For an appetizer we had the pear Brie which was delicious. I ordered the Coq au Vin which again was divine. For dessert we shared a Belgian waffle with fresh berries, vanilla ice cream and chocolate drizzle....Yes!!

Excellent breakfast/brunch. Seating throughout entire restaurant is cosy. Consistently clean. Reservations recommended as very busy for Sunday brunches. So worth it! Restaurant atmosphere is truly wonderful. The portions are great, fantastic menu. Always delicious, fast service. Service is second to none with great friendly staff. Highly recommended to all.

Disappointed as I went there hoping for scallops in either a salad or pasta and they didnt have scallops. As I have an allergy I ended up with a chicken club, which was fine, and a cesear salad with only lettuce and dressing - no bacon or cheese which cost as much as what I was hoping to eat. Not sure if I'll bother going back.

Wonderful breakfast with outstanding service. Located in downtown Kingston, next to the Grand Theatre. Excellent menu, delicious breakfasts, and very busy on a Sunday morning. Ambiance and decor definitely inviting. Very attentive to guests and service is most friendly. Great coffee refills. Our party of 4 will be returning! Highly recommend!

Megalos is immediately beside the Grand Theatre and it was a show night. The place was packed, unfortunately I feel it was understaffed! We had reservations 1.5 hours before the show and when served we had to ask for the bill so we could leave in time for the show. The staff were very busy and friendly. Noise level somewhat expected because of the show, most in attendance were patrons of the Grand. I would return but not on a show night

Service was excellent (coffee just kept coming; thank you!) was surprisingly quiet too for 11am brunch on a Saturday of a holiday weekend. 4 of 5 people thoroughly enjoy their meal, 1 of 5 thought theirs was okay (they ordered the chicken and waffle). Overall, really good experience and would go again.

Waitress was pretty rude when I tried to order a bottle of wine - kept questioning whether I understood that it would be a “full bottle.” After I clarified that, yes, I understood that I was ordering a bottle, she continued to question my choice. This was the first drink of the evening so she had zero reason to question my decision. Very belittling and condescending.
