Hadn't been to The Flying Dog in a really long time. Went with a couple girl friends and had a great time and an awesome server. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals so much so that we all agreed to come back with our husbands. Pleasant atmosphere.

Myself and friends had dinner on a Friday night at this interesting spot. We all had the Date Night specials where two people share an appetizer, each have an entre and then share a desert for $50. I had the rib eye and my friend had salmon. Both were excellent and the cheesecake was to die for!

We went here for a family dinner and the menu has a great selection and is reasonably priced. They also do have a kids menu which is around 8 for drink, meal and dessert. One of my kids had an appetizer of sliders which they converted to a kid’s meal for her since they didn’t’ have any hamburgers on the... More

We have been dining at Flying Dog for special occasion dinners for several years now and this restaurant never fails to deliver quality food and great service. The atmosphere is a bit dark and dated but the chef never disappoints. There are lots of dinner entrees to choose from including lower cost specially pizza to fish, beef or stacked schnitzel,...

We dine at "The Dog" several times a year and often take advantage of the Wednesday pasta special. We notice frequent turnover of staff but service is consistently good so training must be a high priority.The menu has not changed much which might discourage some from eating there more frequently. For us, the salmon, lamb and stacked schnitzel along with... More

Such a classy place. It was not what I expected at all. It is a great place to come to with you and your gfs. I would rather come with friends then family.

Salmon was excellent, Chicken Bocconcini Penne with artichokes: nice, creative and subtle flavours... and as always the fresh breads were a real quality treat. Dessert that arrived wasn't quite as advertised, and it could be a little hard to find the waitress at times, but these are minor imperfections and overall, it's pretty hard to beat the Dog for delicious...

I came here with my boyfriend for my birthday celebration. It was during the holiday season and there was a Christmas cocktail party going on. We were seated beside the large table so it was a bit noisy. Aside from that, the food was good and the drink prices were reasonable. We had the steak and salmon dishes. They were... More
