Parking was a joke. Food was disgusting... pizza was tomato sauce and salt. Calamari was the toughest I've ever had, so overcooked the batter was falling off. Ceasar salad had far too much dressing on it. 3 of us at a table suitable for 1 combined with the oversized dishes and serving platters made for a very cramped experience... will... More

Used to go here A LOT but not anymore. I HATE the new look of the place. Nothing is cozy now and there are hardly any booths. They even totally screwed up the fun bar area by making everything cold and antiseptic. Way to fix something that wasn't broken !!!

Came here with about an hour and fifteen minutes to eat, as we had to catch a show. Asked if we had enough time, we're reassured by staff. Sat and waited for an eternity, before asking them to box it up for us on our way out. Don't know why my burger took so long since it tasted like 3... More

After doing some Christmas shopping at Georgian Mall, 3 of us decided it was time for lunch and didn't want the food court. We agreed to meet at East Side's as it was close as after dining, we would be heading in opposite directions so didn't want to have to drive very far to grab a bit. Couple of things... More

Service was very quick which was nice. I had the Budda boomers for an appetizer which were really good, Seafood linguine for dinner which was decent, and funnel cake for dessert which was very good. They newly renovated it too so it's very nice inside. Overall, it's pretty good.

Service was rude right from the start, like my husband said ... we should have just left then. She made a fuss about us asking to sit in a booth as opposed to the wobbly high top we were seated in. Our basic lunch took almost an hour, as they were waiting for salad bowls. When meal did finally come... More

Hello and thank you for reading my review. Decided to go to east side marios for a nice dinner before going to the movies. As to be expected for a Saturday night it was quite busy so we had to wait a bit to be seated. Once we were seated we had great service and prompt food arrival for most... More

Got delivery for the family tonight and for the second time it was horrible. It took about 90 minutes or so and it is less than 2km from my house. The food was stone cold and when we called to complain and said it was the second time it happened we were told "well don't order from here again then".... More

We booked this restaurant for a large group lunch (30 kids and adults) with more than a week of lead time. Manager 'warned' us at the time of the booking that we would have to be patient because of the size and that it would take some time to get our food. So, going in, we were prepared that this...

Stopped in on a Thursday night for dinner, we got there at 6, not many people so no reason for the service. They asked us to wait while they cleaned a table. There must have been at least 15 tables empty. Service was extremely slow, when they finally came with our meals we asked for cheese once we were 1/4... More
