This is one of the best East Side Mario's I have been in. The food was excellent and the wait staff was out of this world. Kudos to the management for your staff.

Came here for an easy sunday supper and it filled the bill. Stephani, our server was the best part of the meal as she was attentive and brought the food out quickly in addition to making sure we were happy. I had the diavolo calamari to start and chicken tetrazzini. I had the garden salad with my main and it... More

Over the years, I have found that most East Side Mario restaurants have gone downhill in quality. While travelling through the area we want to stop for lunch but our first choice in restaurants was far too busy so we walked up the street to East Side. My five kids, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The waitstaff... More

This pub/restaurant has a great atmosphere, and has a nice feel to it, from the Italian decoration themes throughout. The staff were very friendly and served some great beer.

Then we had a Cesar salad. The croutons were soggy meaning they have been in the salad too long waiting to be served. I got a... More

Because of business circumstances we arrived in between lunch and dinner. We had out of town guests with us so we were more particular about the whole dining experience. We have had many great meals here but on arrival the restaurant was pretty empty and it was a few minutes before we were seated. The waitresses were super friendly and... More

We drove from Montreal through several construction slow-downs in Ottawa to spend the weekend in Pembroke and take part in a friend's wedding. We were hungry, thirsty and tired when we arrived. We chose East Side Mario's. Lucky, lucky us!!! Everyone was super friendly. We give 2 thumb's up to the management and staff. The food was delicious. And Nicole,... More
