Runway 25 Steaklounge
Awesome from start to finish. Susie is Five star. Thank you and we will be back
Mashed potatoes were cold-otherwise an amazing meal.
Delicious steaks! Amazing service from Susie! Love the ambiance of the restaurant!
We went there on Christmas Eve because they had a festive menu - this way no one had to cook turkey. The festive menu had been pulled and we only learned this when we were seated - way too late to make alternate arrangements. So we ordered from the menu. If I had known this in advance, I would have cooked instead and saved us an extremely large restaurant bill. It was a disappointment .
This was a special occasion, and we certainly picked the right restaurant for it. Our waitress, Susie M was fantastic and made us feel right at home. The food was amazing and well priced, and the ambience of the place is great. The high backs on booths and chairs made it very "private" and you didn't feel as if others were even in the room with you. We will definitely be back.
First of all they didn't have our reservation. Then proceeded to "see" if they could seat us in an empty restaurant? Seated us. The table had crumbs on it. The waitress was..excentric??? Did not refill water glasses, or bring us a second drink. Again, there were 3 other tables with people that evening. The bacon on the scallops was rubbery, and the sauce that came with it tasted like taco seasoning? The shrimp my fiance ordered were well over done and tough. My wedge salad was old, brown edge lettuce, but the dressing was good and the tomatoes were nice. The baked potatoes were cold...not warm, cold, the butter did not melt. The filet we both ordered were perfect. Which I guess is the big money item on the menu so...that is the only reason I would even consider giving the 2 stars.
This is not our first time dining there. It is our third actually. Oddly enough last November when we were there for a Birthday dinner, they were out of baked potatoes? Oh and Brie cheese...How does that happen?
We never ever complain or send anything back, anywhere...
And in all honesty the restaurant is close to our home, so we will probably go there again, for convenience over service or quality of food...
I have never taken a moment to review a restaurant before...hopefully I have shed some light, and perhaps the next time we go there, it will be better?
Table by window was drafty. Next time will request a table not by the windows. Table behind us was very loud. Restaurant was not full so there was no need to be seated so close to other diners.
Food was superb though making up for unfortunate seating.
Worst meal I have had in a long time. So mad I can hardly explain. Just don't go there.
Have never been disappointed.
Steaks were very good, mashed potatoes were lukewarm and lumpy. There were no vegetables included or on the menu.
Great selection on the menu! All of the food we ordered was beautifully presented, prepared and generous portion sizes!
We will definitely be back!
Excellent food, service, and ambiance! We will definitely be returning!
It was our first time at Runway 25,and we were not disappointed,The steaks we had were probably some of the best we've had from local steakhouses,the sauces were also a nice touch.Our server was quick and friendly.
Never disappointed with the service or food.this is our ho to place when we want to be pampered while enjoying mouth watering entrees.
The spinach salad was loaded with blueberries, goat cheese, strawberries and candied pecans😍 it was missing the cranberries however. The bruschetta chicken was juicy and oh, so flavourful. The prime rib just melted in your mouth.
Sat us in the very corner even tho the resto was dead. I requested a booth when I online booked and that was not given to us, even tho they were empty all night.
Our server wasn't the greatest either.
Food as usual was great.
Not a steakhouse. Staff did there best with what the managers provide for them to work with. The cooks that work under the chef are excellent at what they do. The head chef should know what is needed to cook a meal properly. I ordered a steak bloody on the inside Chicago on the outside. Both times it came out wrong. I didn't want to send it back for a 3rd time because the rest of our party was almost finished eating by this The staff was excellent. The front line staff took full responsibility for the mistakes. Management did nothing to compensate for the errors or apologize. I would go back but not the those prices. They either need to upgrade for a steakhouse or not offer steaks like a steakhouse.
runway 25 never dissapoints. amazing food, romantic atmosphere and great service. couldnt ask for anything else
The food was good, but not exceptional. So you are paying to for the atmosphere and more so the service. Which for the price should have been exceptional, but wasn't, not even close.
Everyone at our table had a great meal. Our server, Suzie, was very knowledgeable on the menu and all aspects of the restaurant. I will definitely return with my family.
It looks amazing in there. Love the decor, the seating, atmosphere, etc.. Honestly, it was a lot of little things that added up to a not-so-great experience for the price. We will not be returning. The food was mediocre, one of the appetizers didn't really make sense and we found it difficult to eat, the waitress was friendly but very unprofessional and it took us 15-20 minutes to get waters and appetizer orders taken. It wasn't a horrible experience but we were not happy to have spent what we did and sit there wishing we had gone somewhere else. We have rarely, if ever, had amazing food or service from any of the incarnations of The Valhalla restaraunts so we should have known better but we like to give multiple chances. Actually, I should mention that drinks and service at Timbers bar afterwards was fantastic that night, so there ya go!
This restaurant is located in a hotel with a very dark and dated exterior, but the restaurant itself has been recently renovated and is very fresh and elegant inside. Our server was friendly, helpful and attentive. Headings on the menu are somewhat kitschy like "Preflight" to refer to appetizers, but considering the name of the restaurant and its proximity to the airport, it makes sense and we let ourselves be amused as the menu items themselves are serious. Steak is the feature of the menu and we ordered three different cuts, all were cooked as ordered and flavorful. Every steak comes with a baked potato with your choice of toppings, so it's not necessary to order sides unless you want to get a vegetable. One of us ordered salmon and it was excellent as well. Bison and Elk are also on the menu but we weren't feeling that adventurous but the offerings speak to the sophistication of the menu. The restaurant was not very full which was a surprise because we weren't able to get a reservation at Caribou which was our first choice for dinner that night. Don't be fooled by the dated building as we initially were--Runway 25 serves very good food with great service in a modern yet cozy setting. Also check out their extensive cocktail offerings and solid but not too overwhelming wine list.
The new decor is refreshing; we've dined at the Valhalla over the span of several years, and we weren't disappointed with the new menu. Some very exceptional staff here; you might find better in a larger city, but in Northern Ontario - I doubt it. Great place for small parties or couples with some nice surprises on the menu.
