Stopped in for dinner on a Friday night early. Beat the rush, and enjoyed everything again. Great service from all sides, sweet lovely server from the get-go and yummy food. We both opted for the chicken breasts, and toppings and a complimentary app of a tower of rings. Love their buns, multi grain at that! Busy atmosphere but they aim... More

My wife and I previously ate at The Works in Niagara Falls and found both the food and service to be good. We have just returned from our first visit to their London location. If anything, the London outlet is even better. The food was equally well prepared and tasty. The service was excellent. We have found our favourite London... More

Amazing burgers and the poutine martini is to die for. Also the bacon aoli sauce is incredible as well.

The ambience and the theme of the restaurant is good and intuitive. Had one of the best burgers of my life. Waiters were friendly and gave nice suggestions too. Patty was juicy and the meat was really good. Fries too tasted great here. Had a great time and food. Definitely one of the places to look into in Downtown.

The wait was a little long, but expected, had a drink delivered to us while waiting. Love the decor, had some laughs. Wait staff were excellent, attentive and kind. Food was hot, made just like advertised and tasty.

I came by to get some burgers to go. The place looks really nice and original. After I got home and served the food everything was good except the fries that were over cooked, dark and squashy.

They do up a burger the right way, your way! Service is excellent and may take a bit longer than you are used to...but they work at making sure the burger is tailor made for your tastes. The only time the service was a bit lengthy for us in the past the manager came over and apologized and comped my... More

The selection of burgers is pretty amazing, including some combinations I would not have thought to be edible.... I guess I'll just have to try them if I ever get a chance to work my way through the entire list.... Yes, it was little greasy, but not sure if you can avoid that with a burger place and not have...

I enjoyed my meal at The Works and so did everyone I was with. However, all of our burgers were quite greasy. Like to the point that we had grease running down our forearms. Was still good, but messy. We haven't been back and aren't in a big hurry to visit again but it was good for a change!
