    I haven’t eaten out in a nice restaurant for supper since before Covid. I am so glad I picked Preservation Hall for my experience. The service was outstanding, food was excellent, it was truly fine dining . Our party was not ushered out as soon as we were done, like some restaurants I’ve eaten in in the past. Well done. I will definitely go back!

    The negatives: The food was subpar given how expensive it was. The actual dishes were not very good and the presentation fell short as well. That said, we shared appetizers, so perhaps the mains are much better? The positives: the oysters were amazing, well shucked, and larger than other buck-a-shuck places. Our server was very kind and patient.

    The service and experience are always exceptional. My family loves dining in for oyster night, but I also enjoy trying something new on the menu every time we are here. Haven't had anything to complain about so far.

    A great evening out with friends. Food was excellent—so flavourful & beautiful presentation. Creative cocktails & mock-tails—yumm. Friendly & efficient staff. We always enjoy our dining experience here & look forward to our next visit.

    Nice plant based food and alcohol free drink options. We enjoyed the plant based charcuterie board. My husband had the jackfruit sandwich which he thought was a bit too spicy but loved the fries. I had the zucchini pasta without parmesan cheese. It had a lovely flavor. We finished it off with the vegan cheesecake which had a delicious crust. Service was great.

    My husband and I went to preservation hall for the first time last night. We really enjoyed the seared duck that we had for dinner but We wouldn’t rave over the brisket as it was not the most tender. The Cajun rib appetizer was very good but I thought the portion size was pretty small for the price.

    Second time here. Had the Preservation salad for lunch which was fresh and flavourful. The bison meatloaf with the shiitake mushroom sauce was delicious, and I think it’s one of the best items on the menu. Service was great. I definitely will return!

    New Year’s Eve Ambiance is lovely. Service was very good and our waitress was very nice. The food was lovey except for a few items. The pita served with the avocado dip was very doughy and not enough for the amount of dip. I had the king salmon which was delish. There was no Pinot Noir by the glass on the wine list. Our dinner overall was very good

    We had a wonderful experience at Preservation Hall. It was a New Years Eve dinner date. What we loved was as soon as we walked in we were greeted by a friendly hostess. They had a coat check service and we were asked if we would like to check our coats and given a cute little wooden tag with a number on it that matched the hanger. The decor was beautiful and lots of attention to detail was seen. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere. We were provided a excellent fine dining service from start to finish. The temperature in the space was perfect as well. We were seated at a cute 2 person table by a window, it was very romantic. Water provided first as soon as we sat and our waitress was over in a few moments to tell us about happy hour and new years features. We ordered our appy and a couple of cocktails that were flavourful and delicious, same goes for the dinner items we ordered. I asked the waitress if she could pair a wine suggestion with my dinner and it paired perfectly. Smooth and well balanced. We had dessert and specialty coffees to wrap up the dinner. Everything was brought out at a nice time, didn’t feel too rushed or too long. I love that they also offer substitute milk (oat milk) if you would like a latte after dinner. Overall fantastic experience and looking forward to coming back!

    I would have given 5 stars for everything except their heating system needs re-evaluating. We were seated in a corner and when the heat came on it was like a furnace. Luckily we had ice water. I walked around and it seemed not much better near other tables otherwise we would have asked to move. Our server seemed aware of the issue; if it’s a one off because of how cold it was last night then I understand. It won’t stop us coming back but it did make for a few uncomfortable times throughout our meal. Really should have that looked into.

    Would not go back. Char was swimming in oil, French fries were smaller than a dime, most things on menu served with fries, no greenery on the plate to be found. Seems like they are confused what type of restaurant they want to be? Road House Grill or fine dining? For wine bar in the name the wines were lower end with high price tags. I recommend you pay the $25 corkage and bring your own wine.

    We had made a reservation and arrived a bit early. They were able to accommodate us right away. Even though it was a hectic pre-Christmas Saturday, the bar orders were prompt and the kitchen delivered their delectable offerings with the appropriate timing. Our server were fabulous with just enough banter to keep things entertaining. Thanks for a great outing.

    Frites we’re overcooked and to be truly”frites” should be almost shoestring cut. One item which we ordered did not arrive with the rest of the meal so we cancelled it. The pacing of the meal was less than desirable - such a long time elapsed between appetizer and main course we began to wonder where the meal was! We were also left waiting to pay for quite some time - so long that we considered walking to the hostess to ask to pay. It was a busy evening, but that does not excuse inattentive service.
