My husband and I got married in February of 2017, and Shrimp Cocktail was where we decided to host the reception. It has a very intimate atmosphere, and the decor is beautiful. The owner is just a fantastic person- great to deal with, very friendly and gracious, and really goes the extra mile as far as customer service. The food... More

Great selection of house wines, fresh salad and hot bruschetta and amazing deserts made for a wonderful evening. The service was... More

I had recently purchased vouchers for Shrimp Cocktail from Costco, so my husband and I decided to try it out last weekend. We did make a reservation in advance, which was good as the restaurant was very busy on Sat night. Downstairs area looks very nice and modern, but we were seated upstairs which is a very small octagonal room... More

I cannot stress how bad our recent experience here was. My mom wanted to treat me to a nice lunch on a Saturday afternoon so we decided to come here. The options for "nice" dining in the east end are limited and we had been here in the past so thought it was a safe bet. Boy were we wrong.... More

We went to celebrate Valentines with friends, and we try and choose somewhere nice. We have not been here for a year or so and thought we would try it again. We love everything we had and there was a good variety to choose from. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was great. The owner came over to... More

I went here for my two year anniversary, which happened to fall on the Tuesday after Valentines day. I'm not sure if that's just a slow night so they didn't have the staff, or if its a normal occurrence. Although our server was friendly, he didn't list any specials and pretty much only came to drop off food and take... More

We had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant numerous times. It is my mother in law's favourite restaurant and we have to agree. The food/service/decor was outstanding. Thank you for making her birthday memorable.

The meal and service was excellent. Our waitress, Amanda was fantastic and very helpful in helping us choose our meal. We certainly will return as we found this a really pleasant and tasteful dining experience. Also loved the fact that the TV was not on a sporting event!!
