I can't fathom how a restaurant can have consistantly bad service. I have been there four times, have contacted the manager as feedback to the service and I go back and it is still bad! I wish I could give a 5 here because I love the food, but they have had to many chances to make things right with... More

We hadn't been here in many years, so decided to try it for a late lunch. The decor has changed for the better, good job there. The food also was better than years past but still just ok. We had the 12inch pizza, a pasta dish and fries with a beer and a soft drink, for $56.51 tax in, without... More

East Side Mario's used to be a decent place to go with family for some good New York style Italian food, but this location has changed it's recipes. What used to be nice tasty sauces, has been changed to cheaper versions of the recipes - and you can taste it. The food is now flavourless. I sense more oil, very... More

One of my favorite bars to watch the game and have a pint or two.Everyone is always so friendly and cheerful.My only complaint which I hope they rectify which I have brought up several times is they do not for some reason offer blue cheese with your wings.All other east side Marios on the Ontario side does.

Ate here after a day of shopping. Service was quick and place was clean, very loud though so don't go there if you are looking for a romantic soirée and a slow leisure dinner. Pasta is ok, not the best but fills your tummy if you are hungry.

I love Eastside Mario's and eat there wherever I travel since there are none near where I live. This is the first time I have eaten at the Gatineau location and was very surprised how fast the service was. I love the food but in other locations the service is notoriously crazy slow. Wait staff was friendly and fast.

Nice place, good atmosphere, tasty meals. Very enjoyable and the last time my spouse and I were there, it wasn't that busy that customers had to wait. Fast service and good servers.

We were celebrating our son's birthday and had a group of ten family members including a 6 month old a five year old and a three year old. We were sitting close to a very convenient play area which really helped occupy the 3 and 5 year old while their parents could take part in the table talk. The waitress... More
