Used to find this a relatively inexpensive family restaurant with decent food and good portions. Last few times we've been, the food has been sub-par (cool soup, presentation less than appealing), the prices seem to keep going up, less specials than their used to be and one really annoying waiter that we keep getting (hovers, hurries us when he has...

Went there for lunch with our group and generally feel as if it's good for a quick lunch . It's not really good but average at best no matter if you go for lunch or dinner. I had the spegetti primavera which was soupy and did not have the sun dried tomatoes or cooked vegetables in it, they tasted raw... More

I barely go to this restaurant as it has always disappointed me or us. I was thinking about the all you can eat Cesear salad they offer so I thought I would give this place another try. I chose the Kung pao chicken and it was horrible. The sauce tasted like it came out of a jar and disgusting. Kind... More

Went with family for a birthday dinner. The Caesar salad had too much dressing for my liking but the bread sticks were quite good. I would have expected the dinner to be better but it was kind of bland - just okay at best. Service was also okay but again nothing special.

If line ups mean anything, this restaurant should be excellent. All it really meant was a lot of noise. When we finally got our food, my friends pasta was cold. My piza tasted good despite it's drab look. Only in a pinch will I go there again

The whole experience was seamless. We were greeted, brought to a booth and within 2 minutes our server appeared took our drink orders and returned wit the drinks and the home loaf. Our orders were taken quickly and delivered hot and fast. Since we were on a return trip from Ottawa, we decided to check out the new extension to... More

My husband is from a family of restaurant owning Italians from Niagara and though him, and trips to Italy, I have been exposed to great Italian food. East Side isn't that. However it's not bad when you are looking for that North American/English style Italian food that's a little less flavorful and more sweetened than traditional Italian food. Quantities are... More

Went for dinner with my wife. Our server instructed the kitchen (without consulting us) to delay the preparation of our entrees so that she could focus on being attentive to a large group at a multi-table gathering : probably anticipating a much larger tip than that which would come from a table for two. Two hours after we were seated,... More
