    Katelyn was an excellent waitress with great recommendations. We had shrimp cocktail and shishto peppers to start. Then had trout and chicken. We had the pineapple mousse and pistachio cheesecake. Delicious!

    The atmosphere and the food was great. When I booked I thought we would be seated in the dining area at the back, but we were seated in the lounge area. I’m not sure why.

    I would’ve liked a regular table instead of little rounds. We were unfortunately seated right next to the band and it was very loud, hard to converse with our friends. However, the food was very delicious and the service was great.

    We got married at the Palliser 14 yrs ago today, only had time for lunch today so thought the Hawthorn would be perfect. How wrong we were. Food tasted like I was having lunch in a seniors home. Beyond disappointing. The server never came back to check on us so we ended up eating as we were very hungry. But I honestly can’t remember the last time I ate something so plain and boring. The shrimp on toast was not at all what it says it is, lacks some serious imagination, and the chicken sandwich is nothing but bread… perhaps cook the fries next time. After eventually forcing down the tasteless dishes with massive pieces of toast, we waited for ages to get our bill, eventually having to go ask for it. When we tried to explain the issues the server wouldn’t let us speak nor would he stop saying ‘sorry’ long enough to just listen. Needless to say this was a horrible anniversary lunch.

    Mezze plate was a nice start. Our mains consisted of the Lamb, 12oz striploin and the 1/2 roasted chicken. We ordered the cauliflower, carrots and hand cut fries. The cauliflower came out as a starter (maybe to save on table space for the mains) but I felt it didn’t pair well with the mezze plate. The carrots were wonderful and the steak was cooked perfectly to medium. Our server was consistently slow to our table. We opted to share the dishes as suggested by the server, this resulted in a few food spills on our table which remained uncleaned right through dessert (cinnamon crepe cake, amazing!). When we flagged down the server for our bill, it was handed to us along with the debit terminal and the server walked away. I ended up printing my receipt and thanking myself for the wonderful dinner.

    Awful. The menu changed to a format where all the dishes are supposed to be shared. Absolutely hate it. My guests thought I must be a nut to bring them to this type of place. Furthermore I think it is just another way of increasing prices. Last time we ever go to this place.

    Very nice ambience, great renovations for the old restaurant. Couple of issues. Using the middle eastern name for the "mezze" platter tricked us into thinking it would be a pork free item. When I asked for confirmation from our server she let us know that it is actually their version of a charcuterie platter and it did indeed have pork. House made sour dough bread came out slightly burnt. Cowboy chop lacked seasoning.

    A grand and newly renovated bar… but a really bizarre, small and poorly organized menu - and very poor execution by the kitchen coupled with lacklustre service… Fairmont should do much much better. Only rescued a little by the renovated area.

    This was the PERFECT choice for a long overdue catch-up. The high beautiful ceilings created a feel of open space and the tables were all placed well for privacy and distance. Our servers were fantastic and attentive. The food was amazing, I had the eggs benny knowing they would be done well here. We stayed for over 5 hours! Clearly we will be back!

    Today’s experience was much better than yesterday. Shoutout to Carolyn for accommodating me to really enjoy immensely to their music night events both yesterday and today! Also shoutout to my server, Teresa; she went above and beyond as she offered me with cheese and crackers with my complimentary drink. I really had an amazing after dinner for both nights this weekend. Thank you so much!

    The service was excellent and the food was good. The cocktails were ok but too many small ice cubes were used in several cocktails and they very quickly got watered down muted as a result ruining what otherwise would have been a good drink. Large cubes should be used or at least the ice should have been 1/3 of what was put in at a minimum.

    Had a birthday dinner with my husband here in March. It was amazing - 5 star service from when we walked in to when we left. The food was amazing and such BIG servings and great value for the price. Our waitress was amazing, very accommodating and pleasant and knowledgeable. After dinner we asked to move to a location close to the fireplace so we could enjoy the ambiance in nice comfortable couches - where we enjoyed coffee and dessert. It was SO romantic! Would definitely go back and have no hesitation recommending to others.

    Ambience was great! Entertainment was also really enjoyable. Service not not so much. Waitress was abrupt and at the end when she brought the terminal she literally dropped it on the table and just said “there you go” As far as recommending to a friend, only options are yes & no. I think it would depend on what they are looking for.
