As always, Tundra provides prompt service and good food prior to the opera. We ate pork chops which were delicious and perfectly cooked. The room is nice, though not desperately romantic, but the lobby was pleasantly busy with just enough music to add to the ambience rather than drown out conversations.

Tundra features an inventive Canadian cuisine using seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients. The service is impeccable, especial important for the pre-opera crowd. A favourite dinner spot-casual yet refined. Good for couples, groups or business meetings.

Excellent food quality. Beans and farm-sourced sausage was amazing, pizza fantastic, avocado toast with eggs and hollandaise sauce. All at a$15 price point. I would do it again.

Greeter couldn't find lunch menu.
Greeter couldn't locate my reservation at first
Greeter didn't remember that my friend had given her name and mine so I would know that she had already got the table.
Server insistent we should order, although few in restaurant; we wanted a few minutes
Salmon good
Americano like weak dishwater
Worst part... although very quiet lunch time....another party was seated behind us. They made a lot of noise standing up behind me. One woman hit the back of my head by accident, must have felt it, but continued her animated (drunk?) conversation with the group. I told the server when she returned but she hardly acknowledged what I said. She did nothing. I stood up and confronted the party, saying, very appropriately, that the behaviours of the group were impinging on our lunch. My friend had chosen to Thunder Bay to see me, and needed business advice. This was our opportunity to talk, yet it was ruined.
I am not happy about it. I complained at the time and thought the server would get a manager to deal with it if she wouldn't herself.
I live near the hotel and use Tundra often. This experience was the worst yet.

Attended at Tundra for Summerlicious 2019 and the service received was horrible. Ordered steak but was provided no steak knives when asked was given one to share between the two of us and told that they were all out because of an event and that kitchen said butter knife would work. The server couldnt be bothered to refil water or ask whether we wanted more drinks. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! The food was okay although the cold soup should have been noted in menu as was not expecting that.

No complaints. Great experience and always yummy food. Only thing I think is strange that for a fairly pricey meal we are not given any bread and must pay for it by choosing a basket of bread with olives from the appetizer menu. That is pretty petty I think. Just make the bread a part of the eating experience.

The tables are very close together which means that several people can hear your conversations. Why don’t they sit people a little more sparsely especially when the place is less than half-full. Food and service were very good.

This was the worse restaurant experience I’ve ever had. Let’s start with the awful waiter, this guy was extremely rude when he approached the table and it was obvious he didn’t care to be there. I had to ask multiple times for a refill, remind the guy to bring steak knives, and he had no clue about anything on the menu. The food was horrible too, ordered the ribeye steak, it was like chewing on rubber and an extremely thin cut of meat. I have no clue how this place has more than one star, it was absolutely horrible service and food. To give a comparison the chain Texas Road House was about 1000X times better. Save your time and money, and go somewhere else.

From the moment we walked in the service was impeccable. The squash-potato soup was delicious and perfectly smooth. The chicken wrap was excellent, and although it tasted great, the Beyond Burger was soggy from the the pickles and tomato on top of the patty. This was my first time at this restaurant and I would definitely return.

Dinner prior to attending Opera. Service designed to coordinate with Opera start time. An excellent special Opera menu, as well as able to order from regular menu. All designed for a most enjoyable pre-Opera dinner! Much appreciated, and very well done!

Went here with family and most of us were disappointed with our food. The burgers were dry, the mac&cheese needed something else, and the curry was too salty. The service was a bit slow as well, despite it not being too busy while we were there.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Our party found the service to be poor - the server was inattentive despite there only being a handful of diners in the restaurant. Food was also bland - the bison burger bun was soggy and falling apart when it arrived, and the salad was similarly soggy and disappointing.

If you're looking to host a colleague for lunch in the financial core there are plenty of better options, skip this one.

A large conference day last week, promptly seated my Daughter and I with a reservation. Service was great, as was the food, served hot and timely. The setting made for a great time to chat with my daughter not noisy at all .

We were not given the full menu available because the server told us they were " in transition " which was a lie . All the diners who came after us were given the full menu. Needless to say we were most annoyed and will not have dinner there again. Disappointing because we had gone on the website to choose our meal only to be given the limited

Location perfect as we were going to the Ballet next door. Great choice on the menu but not overwhelming amount to choose from. Staff were professional and helpful as our waiter kept an eye on the clock to ensure we were not late for the show. Food delicious and perfect quantity. The restaurant was a little cool but tolerable. I would go again!
