I love the atmosphere at Sims and our service was outstanding. There were six different oyster options and the three that we tasted were great. The caesar salad was also very good. The wine list is better than most. Sadly, our mains were awful. The...ribeyes were overcooked (we asked for medium rare) and covered with a thick coating of salty steak spice. The amount of salt made them all but inedible. The double baked potatoes were dry and lukewarm and yet burned on top. Even the plating was unappetizing - the steak was served on top of the parsnips and broccoli. This is normally an excellent restaurant. Maybe the chef had the night off? Very disappointed this time.More

Great food, prepared well with attentive service. After isolation for two weeks upon entering PEI this was our first restaurant to visit. Food was excellent. A bit pricey but other than that it was excellent

Sims never disappoints, especially on occasions like New Year's Eve! How lucky to celebrate with the best steak in town ... thanks too for outstanding service from server Jesslyn. Keep that table reserved, and I'll see you again soon in the New Year!

Does the food justify the ridiculous price and the puffed up quasi-classiness of the atmosphere? Nope.More

I was visiting PEI for my birthday and I booked a reservation here. The staff were very welcoming and wished me a happy birthday. The food was delicious and beautiful and they even put a candle in my dessert which was a very lovely touch....The restaurant is also very cozy and comfortable with a great view out to the street. I would definitely visit again if I'm ever back in Charlottetown.More

Based on comments from others It is possible my expectations were set a little too high. If you are looking for a steak and do not mind paying $40 for a six ounce portion this is the place for you. The four of us had...steaks and all were tasty and cooked to the various degrees we had requested. We had mixed reviews on the other items. The creamed spinach was swimming in sauce but lacking flavour, the French fries were pale and limp - not crispy or seasoned at all. The $13 Caesar salad was very ordinary with packaged croutons, a few bacon bits and virtually no Parmesan cheese. The service was friendly and professional however I left feeling I would not return here because there were better and more reasonably priced Restaurants in Charlottetown.More

We had dinner there this weekend and were looking forward to having a great steak dinner. We started with the salad wedge, which was massive but quite good. We split the rib eye steak, which we had ordered medium but it was dry, even with...the gravy. We mentioned this to our server and she said she would take care of us. She didn’t. The service at the bar was quite slow as well, drinks were good though.More

Our family had a great dining experience. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgable. The atmosphere is comfortable and the food was excellent. We really enjoyed the oysters (from 4 different regions in PEI), the lobster dip (with naan and chips) was delicious, the Atlantic...lobster my son had was great, tenderloin steaks were cooked to perfection.More
