My wife and I were out in Charlottetown on a beautiful evening for dinner. Victoria Row was packed and we couldn’t get in anywhere except for here. We started by waiting 45 minutes for our drinks, which my wife had the sangria. Was expensive and...mostly was just juice. We waited another 45 mins for our appetizer which was the seafood cioppino. The dish came out spilled all over the plate it was on, and then it hit us. The smell. Like a mix of vomit and bad seafood. I tasted anyway to give it a chance, and the seafood was most definitely spoiled. I sent it back to which the waitress smelled it and told me it was normal….ok. Next came the steak frites. The steak which I ordered medium was grey inside and covered in a viscous flavourless sauce. It was wrapped in bacon which was also grey. It most definitely looked like one of those frozen steaks you buy from no frills. The saving grace? Good fries I guess. My wife had the ginger chicken stir fry, which was almost inedible due to the massive amount of ginger. Way over seasoned. The waitress kept trying to tell us that these things were normal. She ended up comping part of our bill but the remaining still came to 80 DOLLARS. 80 bucks for potentially the worst meal I’ve ever eaten on PEI. I’ll never be back.More

Paysan board and burger love Visited Wednesday night and it was busy. Glad we called ahead to reserve. Paysan board (charcuterie board) is expensive but has a generous amount of meats and cheese cubes on a bed of spring mix. Last year's winners of burger...love have a good burger on the menu again this year. Last year's winner is still available. Decent wine list by the bottle or glass. Outdoor seating and indoor seating with Covid plastic partitions between the tables. Service was fast and friendly.More

We live in PEI and always wanted to try it out but never did well we did today and it was great. The service and food were excellent. Always love having a meal down on Victoria Row in the summer, sun is shining and music...playing it is just a wonderful atmosphere. We got the wonchos to start then I had the lobster tacos with a Cesar salad and hubby had the steak and frites and both meals were great. For dessert we couldn’t decide so we got the dessert taco and the turtle cheesecake in a jar and both were delicious.More

Winners of 2020 Burger Love and they were closed after Burger Love ended for a well deserved rest. Reopened on November 6 and only their award winning burger is on the menu (with fried or garlic mashed potatoes). Pies available for dessert Perhaps our mistake...was going the first night they opened but with only one item on the menu you wouldn't expect to wait an hour. Wonton on top of Burger was delicious and, despite the long list of items on the burger, we thought the burger was just okay. Strongly recommend reservation. They were extremely busy with eat-in and take out orders.More

I’m ashamed to admit this was my first time eating at the row house as I’m from the island. The waitress we had was over the top at making sure we had everything we needed all while making us feel like we’ve known each other...forever. She had also mentioned her partner was the chef in the kitchen which made us even more inclined to try anything she recommended. We left with our bellies full and a smile on our face. We can’t wait to be back next summer.More

Overpriced. Below average quality. Lots of frozen seafood. Only good for naive tourists who don’t mind getting played like a fiddle. Kind of like the coffee shops around the Eiffel Tower were you pay 10$ for a cup of Folgers instant coffee.

If you need a lobster fix, this restaurant won't disappoint! I ordered the gluten free lobster roll and it was amazing. The lobster was cooked perfectly and there was lots of it. The bun was also very good. I do wish they still had a...gluten free fryer, the waitress said they discontinued it this year. Sometimes you just don't want a salad as a side.More

My 2 kids (ages 11 and 13) and I had a wonderful meal last week end ... the lobster roll was absolutely excellent! The service was courteous, gracious and efficient. Will most definitely be back during our next visit to Charlottetown!

We have a ramp that enables a wheelchair into our main restaurant area. Unfortunately, our washrooms are not.
