Quality food reasonably priced and excellent service in a stunning location. Very popular location so worth booking as there aren't many other options.

I was tucked in a sweet corner inside. It was a sunday at 6:45 Pm. I order a Ceaser Salad and a normal Ap. Could this foolproof food be made well here .. it was not. I had a sprained ankle but i watched standing in pain as 5 to 7 staff members ran in illogical circles not one of... More

Sorry to hear about your experience. The pub and Herons run off the same kitchen so often we reach maximum seating capacity ( per half hour) and although it appears slow the pub is busy as well. Although we can not control how guests interact with you if you were made uncomfortable in anyway we would do our best to... More

This is truly a beautiful setting, but a few things kept me from giving this place a 5. First of all, our reservation was written for the wrong day, even though we made it the same day and said we wanted to eat there that night. We were not able to sit outside. They were out of my two first... More

We have been here before, and we do like it here but this visit was average. The food was good, service excruciating slow, and the menu is limited, prices fall in the medium range. The patio dining is pleasant, but there are a ton of wasps. If you are allergic it would be best to avoid the patio.

We did have one bad week of wasps. Hard to control nature when you are in the middle of it. We did find that putting cloves on the tables kept them away. Always good to learn new secrets. It is a beautiful patio that's for sure! More

the menu had so many attractive items. we had the bison carpaccio and lamb sirloin which was so beautifully presented. the waitress was very accommodating with substitutions and suggestions for our 9yo.(his skirt steak topped with mushrooms was fab. wish we could work our way through this menu!

Definitely our favorite place on Quadra. Great people, good food. We love this place, it serves as a community centre, night on the town, and overflow for visiting relatives.

My teens and I had a wonderful dinner here. The food was delicious, with the menu offering a nice variety, and the dessert was exceptional! The service was a little slow at times, but to be expected at a busy place, but our waitress was very friendly and helpful.
