On our 2nd visit to this restaurant and 1st time since the new management, we ordered the jerk chicken poutine and I was immediately put under's it's delicious spell.
If you like jerk chicken and poutine and treating your stomach to a good time, this is the item to order!

That poutine was enough to convince me that I would have to come back and try out other items on the menu..

The menu is small, which is usually a great sign in my opinion and the service was good - I would go back for another visit for sure

Had a great time with family and friends at Showtime Bistro.
They are under new management and they went out of their way to make things right for us. Best thing about this place was the good. I love their jerk chicken poutine and pastrami sandwich. My wife had the California Salad which was very fresh as well. Ferraro Rocher milk shakes was delicious and so were the desserts (cheesecake and pie)

Interior was clean and the waiters were all ready to help and had smiles on their faces.
Will definitely go back!

The quality of food and service has gone up 100 folds. The menu is soooo good. Staff are friendly and food is out on time. The chef is a 22 year veteran as a chef. Must try their poutines and burgers...ribs and steak cooked to perfection. AAA Prime Rib beef...cant go wrong there!

We had the steak, The Big Show burger and waffle s'more. The steak and burger were okay, but the waffle s'more was disappointing. They have a strange arrangement where a staff member greets and sits you, but then everything else from ordering to food pick-up and table clearing is self-service. You also pay up-front instead of after your meal. The kitchen staff is inexperienced. We had the issue noted by another reviewer with our fries being very salty. In addition, our Caesar salads came without bacon bits until we notified the waitress who reminded the kitchen staff about this before fixing the problem. We noticed the place was not very busy even though we came on a Friday night.

If the order wasn't messed up then the food was good but out of 6 dishes, 4 had mistakes. Waitress was apologetic and polite but chef needs to up their game,
