HI. The only small snag was the timing of the wine. We had to ask for the wine menu and it took some time to receive it so we were part way through our entree when the wine arrived. Not a big deal but get the wine earlier would've made it perfect. The food was tasty although I wished the garlic mashed potatoes had some more garlic in them. Thanks for a nice meal.

Good ambience with a steady stream of clients. Table was small and the restaurant bussling - definitely not a quite romantic dinner. Server was excellent. Food very good although my spouse should have ordered beef tenderloin as she didn't enjoy her surf and turf as much as I did. Definitely would come back as good value for money. Next time I would ask for a more remote table.

Friendly and courteous server, but a bit slow service. Average food, my Wagyu steak was over cooked (half the steak was). Overall average experience. I expected a bit more.

Visiting from out of town.

Service was minimal and when Our meal was served- there was no follow up until
the bill. Disappointing as missing sauce order. Could even see anyone to ask.
Decor needs cleaning up ( ceiling tiles)
Food was good overall

Food was excellent, though the server didn't box my food as requested, so had half a meal thrown away.

The portabello mushroom dish had a portabello the size of a jam lid. It was supposed to be stuffed with goat cheese. The goat cheese was a spoon full ladled on top. The mushroom was black. I guess grilling something that small must have discolored it, or it had been in the fridge for days. Gross. The desert (pecan pie) was straight out of a Walmart freezer. The waiter took forever to bring the check.

I have been coming here for steaks for years, at least once a month if not more often. If I am in the mood for a hearty meal (and girth permitted of course) I will go for the 14 oz rib-eye. Otherwise, it is always the steak frites, medium rare, chipotle butter. I have never left unsatiated, until this visit. This time around, the flat iron steaks (plural, my friend ordered the same thing at my suggestion) were dry, tough and chewy. My friend's cut, in particular, had a lot of tendons. Even the fries, which are usually golden on the outside with fluffy potato meat inside, so sinful after soaking up all that steak juice, were dry, dark, shriveled and tasted like they had been repeatedly fried in recycled oil. We didn't report this to the waiter (who was never in sight to begin with) because we were pressed for time.

For the first time in 5-6 years, I didn't leave with a happy heart and a full stomach. And I knew I would have a hard time convincing my friend to trust my recommendations again. This might be an isolated slip-up but given that both orders were in same bad shape, I am hesitant to return and give the restaurant a chance to redeem itself.

We enjoyed our dinner at Quinn’s, service and ambience were enjoyable. Food was all delicious, and steaks were well prepared, however they were rather “lean” ie low marbling so not as flavorful as they could be. Still very good and we would recommend Quinn’s for a nice steak dinner

Was expecting a higher end steak house. Place is older but nice. Biggest problem we had was there were a bunch of very young children going ape s:&)t so we asked to be moved. Moved us about 20 feet further still a zoo. What is The matter with some parents. Spoiled our dinner. They treated this like a play area and parents did absolutely nothing. I guess the manager can’t say anything so not to lose business. Sadly will I go back no.

We had to endure 20mins of a fire alarm test during our meal. I daresay it was beyond your control but I would have thought that the negative impact on your customers would have been worth a small gesture on your part to off set the annoyance. Regardless of the cause, it made a negative impression on our experience which attaches to the restaurant. I'm there 2 or 3 times a month and we were about to get up and leave after one drink.

Came for the Prime RIb, which was sold out (and understandable).
Had the Crispy Fish Appetizer, which was over cooked.... a lot.

We had the Ribeye and Surf & turf as entrees, which were very good.

We came to celebrate 2 birthdays. The meal was great. My friend ordered off the Prix Fixe menu. She really enjoyed the Wild Mushroom Chicken. I ordered off the regular menu and got the AAA Alberta centre cut, New York Striploin 12 oz. The striploin was cooked perfectly to my liking (medium rare), was tender and flavourful. The service was also great. Our server was attentive and came to check on us at all the perfect times.
Will come back again!

Ordered the beef filet and it was “murdered”. Sent it back and it was still very over cooked. Poor waiter was in a tough spot. He was great. We were comped for my meal including my drink. He also got us a free dessert and a salad. Overall this place is far too expensive for what you get. The steak pasta dish was terrible and meat in it was tough. Will not be back!!

We tried the summerlicous menu. The food was delicious but still too expensive. We asked for gravy or au jus but instead got peppercorn sauce for $5.00 which was not worth it for the size, and we were not told the price until after the fact

I had Summerlicious dinner at Quinns, but very disappointed with food. My steak was at perfection; however, ribs and chicken were very very dry like they were made a long a go and sauce on the top was very overpowering the flavour. I rather order a la carte next time if I happen to be there again.

We had the summerlicious dinner and it was great. 3 course meal for $33 each. The watermelon salad and chowder soup was great. And the steak and ribs were delicious. Dessert wasn’t that great but did the job. All in all we had a nice experience. Definitely recommend.

We went for summerlicious and were escorted to where all the summerlicious diners were (I think). When we got our food, my boyfriend received the wrong over. After telling our waiter (who was nice) he received the correct order after about 5 minutes.

He got the chicken and ribs and the chicken was VERY dry and leathery. The ribs were also a bit dry and just covered with sauce. By the time the waiter came by again, he had finished his meal except the chicken (which is one of the main parts of the meal...). The waiter offered to get a new chicken but we did not want to wait. They offered us drinks as an apology but I wish we had received a discount for the meal.

The staff was very nice though.

Steakhouses have always been one of my favorite category of restaurants, and with this year's summerlicious I finally got a chance to try Quinn's.

Appetizers
Corn & Sweet Pepper Chowder
Chilled Tomato Gazpacho
Quinn's House Salad

Entrée
Steak Frites
Salmon and Quinoa Bowl
Steakhouse Burger

Desserts
Double-chocolate Fudge Brownie
Lemon-Poppyseed Cake
Blackberry & Ontario Rhubarb Crisp

The gazpacho will be refreshing to have for this summer with this extreme heat we are experiencing. I really love the steak with the lemon aioli, it's a perfect match, and I highly recommended you to try it if you love steaks too. As for the desserts my personal favorite would be the Blackberry & Ontario Rhubarb Crisp, it's a bit sweet and yet sour, thus feels less filling. The fudge brownie is very rich in favour as well, recommended for chocolate lovers.

Not a fan of receiving a call the day of my reservation to be told if I’m not there 15 minutes prior we would lose our table and the 90 minute seating limit. Restaurant was not that busy and we stayed for well over 2 hours. We’re told bread was not included as part of summerlicious and portions were kind of pathetic compared to the regular menu. I felt ripped off as I would have been happier ordering from the menu and getting bread but skipping dessert. Would return just not for Summerlicious

What a pleasant surprise it was to have a high quality dinner at Quinn's! I honestly wasn't expecting the food to be so good -- but it was so much better than many restaurants in Toronto. Fall off the bone ribs 😍
