We have recently been to the Old School House a few times in the last couple of months. Each time, the food is exquisite and the atmosphere is charming! The staff are very friendly and attentive. It's one of our favourite restaurants!

We were very impressed from the minute we arrived. We checked our coats and were seated at a decent size well set table. The staff works like a well oiled machine. We were pampered all evening with water and coffee top ups and our waiter topping up our wine from the bottle we selected. We started with Oysters Rockefeller and... More

I don't understand what the draw of this place is! We were with two other couples for an anniversary dinner and was quite disappointed especially because of how expensive it was ! We started out with a loaf of bread that was very crusty and dried out served with salmon pàte. I ordered ceaser salad and I don't know what... More

Our group of 15 ladies thoroughly enjoyed lunch at this restaurant. The place is quite spacious with several different areas for the diners. We were very pleased that they gave us a section all to ourselves. The menu is quite extensive; however most of us chose the luncheon specials which were reasonably priced. There were 3 choices for the entree... More

Great service affordable and great quality. The old school has been in business for over 30 years and has delivered a high standard of service, great food and a is a fine dinning atmosphere. Sunday brunch is also very popular. Try it and you will not be disappointed.

Food is adequate disappointed no carved Turkey on their morning buffet for Thanksgiving. Lines are long and your hot food, other than the omlette station will be cold by the time your back to table. Small selection of salads which were all fine as well as the dessert side. No need for more. Shrimp should have been colder. Staff are... More

We always love our meals and service here though we don't seem to go often enough.The atmosphere is difficult to describe. It is quite old fashion in an adorable sort of way. The decor is high end and very interesting. Apparently, even the Queen ate here once upon a time. There is a singing piano player and you can get... More

We went to the Old School House, The décor was good. We got a loaf of bread with navy bean and peppers was awesome. For the starter we had Greek Bruschetta it was tasty.
