Great fast and very friendly service!!! Caesar salad and hot bread delicious!!! Tuscan salad for my wife excellent!!! BUT those chicken wings were absolutely awful!!!!!!!!!!!! Tried the parmesan and medium hot wings. Both were breaded and SUPER greasy. Almost if they were cooked yesterday and reheated. Sauce was served on the side.....

Four of us went out to lunch at East side Mario's Totally delicious. The salad lots of sauce. The soup, very tasty. I would say the best soup i have had in years. My husband had pasta, Very tasty. My client has Fish and Chips and she cleaned up her plate.

If you like expensive fast food, luke warm food (micro-waved heated?) and mediocre service, this is the dining experience for you! Should have known, when I phoned and asked for a reservation and was put on hold while the request was checked with the manager, that this restaurant was a questionable choice! They took my reservation however, there were plenty... More

Very average Italian food for an above average price. Pasta everything seemed to be overwhelmed by Rosemary seasoning. Not as good as the ESM in Moncton but the service was outstanding and fast even when busy.

Went to ESM for lunch today around 3pm with my wife and son. Service was somewhat slow for the restaurant not being busy at all. Food was good though. Our server was excellent. Always smiling and checked in on us a few times once our food came. Price was reasonable for what we ordered. Will certainly go back at some... More

I've only eaten here twice, but both times the staff was friendly and the food was pretty good. I've had both pizza and a pasta special. This is a basic chain, but again, the food is good and the price is right.

We visited here on New Year's Eve 2016 at lunch time, 12ish. Not crowed to say the least. Service was great. Can't say the same about the meal. Two lunch specials were ordered. She had the Caesar salad side and mine was the Wedding soup. Her salad was a tired excuse for a salad, the sauce was meager and rather... More

We had a nice meal with plenty of extras! Most meals come with choice of side, and there's a deal on right now where you can take home one of their pasta dishes!

Went to ESM for lunch. Have eaten here many times. Service was great. My lunch mates were pleased with their meals. But mine was terrible. I always get the same meal- cheese capaletti- My favorite ESM dish. The moment it was set in front of me, I knew it was not good just by the look of it. It was... More

Eaten here on several occasions. Service is reflective of "business" - perhaps they have difficulty lining up staff during peak periods so may be a bit slow at times but generally satisfied with the food in quantity and quality. We'll be back.
