We kept hearing that this place was worth a try. My wife and girls tried and didn't like it. I kept saying we should try it again and that maybe they just caught them in a bad night. So we tried again. They were right, it just isn't that good. Everything is just OK. The food isn't great, the ambiance... More

Nice selection of specialty cocktails. The crostini appetizer was perfect and fresh. Entree portions are generous. The live music was perfect to enjoy while eating and the dance floor was full of people enjoying the band. The staff were friendly and attentive. Overall no complaints. I would definitely visit again.

My wife and I eat out with another couple every few months. We liked the idea of the Wednesday dinner special and came to Mandile's and sat outside. Occasionally we'd hear emergency vehicles responding to rush hour accidents in the very busy Algonquin, however, the atmosphere outside was quite cozy with the lighting and table set ups...we ignored all occasional...

My husband and I had a late reservation for dinner on Friday night. We were running a bit late due to one of our 6 kids having issues getting to sleep while being babysat by Grandma and Grandpa. So I called to let them know we'd be about 15 min late and I was told "no problem. Thank you for... More

Hello, I am the owner of the establishment and I wanted to verify the legitimacy of this review, as we find it false and frankly insulting. First of all we are sorry for any confusion you may have come across Friday evening, in no way shape or form do we want to upset our guests, perhaps if I was there... More

Attended with a group of 10. The staff was very accommodating. The table was ready when we got there. The atmosphere was great. The food tasted great and was affordably prices. I recommend the Calamari and the Oscar filet. I would go there again.

There was a corporate event going on inside so it was loud so we sat outside, music to loud, busboy spilled oil on my purse and waiter forgot to order appetizer. However the waiter and all staff were fantastic. Ordered, kids meal,... More

Reliably good in the past but have not been here for years mostly because a bit far from our house. Now here on a Friday. The food was incredible, all fresh ingredients, something different and I highly recommend. Eggplant parm on a chicken breast and seafood ravioli for my husband. Sat out on the patio and was beautiful evening. Bar... More

Hi. Stopped her for dinner.its ok but not really special. I don't know if we will be back. Nothing on the menu stands out. When I go out I like it to be special.

We had the chicken marsala, the chicken marsala and the chicken franchise. Both were excellent! The tiramisu is out of this world! The service was top notch- especially with the moderate pricing! The decor is way out of date. If they were to update the walls, baths, artwork etc. with the help of a good decorator (even in keeping with... More
