Not what we were expecting. We were there about a year ago, and the food was good. Went to go bout a month and a half ago, place was closed!!. Went back tonight with friends, all of us looking forward to it. Not impressed! Sorry...but menu has been drastically reduced. Very disappointing. My house salad (17$) was very good., but 17$???? My salmon was ehhhh, risotto was cold. Chicken Supreme was very salty. Our Server was not very attentive. (Was not busy) Was 470$ plus tip. I know how it is to run a business. Sorry but definitely not worth it. Won't be back.More

They are not opened even on Thursday! The website was not taking any reservation. Called no answer and the voice mail was full. When arrived today, no one in the store. All dark inside and door locked.

Love the lobster sandwich, after reading the previous reviews I was wondering how it would be. The food was amazing once again. always get the lobster sandwich and it never disappoints. So glad I went back to make my own review as both of us...enjoyed our lobster sandwich.More

First of all this is not really a restaurant. it is a bar serving food. Don’t expect much from the decor. not appealing at all. paint unfinished, curtains on the wall, cheap tables and chairs, etc. Next the food. Had a burger. Fries were good....Bread was ok, lettuce seemed tired, bacon was good and other ingredients were ok. the issue was with the beef patty. patty was well seasoned but was hard/dry. very bad texture. expected a lot more from a 27$ burger. Service was fine. free evening parking nearby. Don’t recommend this place overall.More

Just had takeout lobster sandwich which usually was the best I have had!! But not only have they increased the price to $25 and taken away the side dish…. I swear it was not just lobster. I’m sure there was imitation lobster in it as...filler. I won’t be going back.More

Service is great, food amazing! Went right to the full deal and now that we've indulged in their awesome salad and will dream forever about the risotto and stunning deserts, we've gotta go try a burger!

The food is fabulous, absolutely no complaints there. The service impeccable. Noise level a bit loud. The only complaint I have is that I don't like to see the server's breasts almost falling on my plate every time she bends over to deliver food/bill etc....Leave something to the imagination. Maybe if she was out herself trying to attract males would be another story, but serving in a restaurant a definite NO NO!!!!!More

We booked a dinner at Karma Kameleon Gastropub in Thorold, Ontario on our recent vacation trip to Niagara Falls. Based upon its description, we had expected a gastronomic experience in quiet, rural café type setting. What we found was a noisy urban bar on a...Thorold main street. I had a nice shrimp & scallops dish on a bed of risotto while my wife had rather bland ravioli. We had started with an artichoke dip and nan, but the dip wasn't good and the nan was more like a flaccid pita. Service was okay, except we waited twenty minutes for our bill before I had to hunt down our server to get it. All in all, it was not the experience we had expected.More

By far the best food I have the pleasure to enjoy. Enjoyed the lobster grilled cheese and was delicious. Lots of lobster filled this sandwich. I highly recommend trying this!! The sandwich was loaded with yummy goodness and the was a good portion.

The atmosphere and service was almost great. This restaurant has been on my list for a year when I visited Ontario. The whole shebang Caesar was awesome. I judged the beef quality from the slider on the Caesar so we decided to order burgers. Unfortunately...when it came we quickly realized that it wasn’t a hand pressed burger like the slider it was a frozen processed burger. For the price and the hype of this restaurant they would benefit from a fresh ground beef patty. I would go back & try something else.More

Delightful small gastro-pub didn't disappoint. Unique fresh food with excellent service. On the recommendations of friends, met for mid-week lunch and was thrilled with the menu items and service. Most of us had the Lobster Grilled Cheese, another had a Gourmet Burger along with a...variety of fresh salads beautifully presented. Thanks to Blaine, our server, he ensured we were well taken care of. Looking forward to returning and trying their other unique menu items. Well done folks.More

Food was exactly what I expected after reading the menu and the servers description. Food was flavourful and not over salted which I find most restaurants are. Had Rueben and harvest salad as did another person in my group had. Another guest had a Chicken...sandwich with fries and a the last had the lobster grilled cheese. All of us agreed that the food matched our expectations and the service and drinks were great. Would definitely go again.More
