Food is always amazing here, it is pricey but worth it! The view is insane in the summer, with boats cruising around and sitting on the patio. The only issue is the timings/days open for this restaurant. Other than that, love this place

Dropped in here today ...sign on door says restaurant and bar and the TripAdvisor site says that it is open . I was told this is no longer a restaurant but a banquet hall. This should be corrected . There was a shower going on.

Welcome to Sarcoa, Hamilton's premiere waterfront dining experience and events centre.

Using fresh local ingredients, our chef's make everything possible in-house. Our goal is to provide you with gourmet comfort food in a warm, contemporary setting.

Our 350 seat Waterfront Patio is the jewel of Hamilton.

This year on the Waterfront Patio, we no longer be utilize an outdoor kitchen with a separate menu. Instead, the area behind the outdoor stage is now a self-service lounge area. This lounge space is for enjoying drinks and waterfront views. We kindly ask you grab your own drinks at the outdoor bar, and take them back to enjoy the lounge.

If you are interested in joining us for lunch or dinner, you will need to make a reservation in advance, and will then be seated in a designated area with service: the interior of Sarcoa, Sarcoa's Upper Patio, or at a glass table in front of the patio stage.

We understand the concept of our patio is a little different; however, because our chefs strive to serve the highest quality of freshly made menu items, in doing so, we must compromise with the ability to only serve a limited amount of guests at one time at a slightly slower pace.

We kindly ask for your cooperation and understanding in regards to the way we orchestrate our patio. Our goal is to give you and your family and friends a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy well-crafted food on the best patio in Hamilton.

We hope to see you out there soon!
