This was my first time at this restaurant. I heard that they it had been under renovation, so I popped in with a friend to try the quality of the new pizza oven they had put in. I was absolutely astonished by the quality of the pizza. Thin crust, not floppy, could be eaten with your hands (like a barbarian)... More

Coodos for your beautiful renovations but the brunch has changed for the worse. I and my two friends have been coming for the last four years but not again. The lamb should never have been served it was not edible, the carrots were raw. The turkey was good. The variety was not there. I think you should rethink for next... More

We stay at the Cambridge Suites a couple times a year for local events and always grab a bite, a drink or two or enjoy a catered meal in an event room downstairs, but this year we ate one night in the redesigned and redecorated restaurant. There was at least 30 in our group including teen girls. From the new... More

We have been going to the Bruce since it opened. The food was always good, but it has been slipping in the past few years. The Bruce decided to re-brand itself to a locally sourced brew house. The new menu features wood fired pizza and a heavily Korean influenced menu. The room has been redecorated as well and is quite... More

This is a great place to chill and have a drink afterwork. Their new catering B -Elegant is great, my company uses them all the time now for lunches for client meetings. Their desserts are fantastic. The new pizza oven rocks! Its nice and thin crust like in Italy. Every time I have gone there it was a good time... More

I was informed that the Bruce had gone under the knife and came out looking fabulous so I had to check it out. When we approached it looked absolutely stunning and the entire atmosphere had changed. It now has an upscale trendy look that I really dig. We were greeted and seated on a nice high table with very comfortable... More

The Bruce is clean and well kept and offers large portions of well prepared food that is a little on the pricey side. However, the service we received negates all of the good points. Just left with the impression we were there for him.

Buffet style with a large selection to choose from (hot and cold). Service was fast, attentive and very friendly. Price was reasonable.

We booked a group table in advance for a birthday dinner. The timing of the meal was horrible. Wrecked the birthday dinner for my friend. Service was so slow. People were hungry, had to go find a server to ask for bread. Some people in the group would be finished their meal before others were served. There was no manager... More
