Came here on the first day of our holiday, whilst suffering from jet lag but determined to stay awake. This was our first experience of Canadian hospitality and it was truly perfect. It's a shame you don't get the same level of service back here...More

Melissa's mistake is her steak. Sirloin tasted chewy , like gum. Overpriced, overrated, not what I expected. Rethink their cook. But nice staff.

I’ve been to Melissa’s twice now and have been well satisfied on both occasions. The prime rib I had on my first visit, and the New York strip I had most recently were both prepared to my specifications. The service was great and the location...More
