We take advantage of having a fine dining establishment like this as often as our special celebrations will allow. Our last visit was just before Christmas for a family birthday and did not disappoint. The steak is cooked exactly the way you order and there's always a special entrée for the evening worth the try. It's nice to see couples... More

I have enjoyed meals here several times in the past few years. The waiters are well versed in the art of attending to their customers, which greatly enhances the dining experience. The food has always been up to par and prices are what you might expect for a fine dining establishment.

This was the 5th New Years Eve dinner our party of 8 attended here and probably the last. Our waiter was ok but certainly not like he should have been for this type of establishment. Food was adequate but not presented well. My rack of lamb was tender but the sauce and seasonings were bland. It was cut into 4... More

It had been years since I had been here, so I was eager to see the place again. Was not disappointed. The ambiance is warm and inviting. The purpose of the visit was a staff Christmas party for a small group. We were well attended by staff. I had a vegetarian pasta and veggies which were delicious, as was my... More

I have been wanting to eat that this restaurant for a long time so when my sister booked it for our family brunch I was elated. Although the esthetics of this restaurant is charming, from the dower moody reception we received upon arrival to the poor quality of food I would never go back here or recommend it. The only...

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
