My wife called for a reservation for 8 people including an 11 month old baby and she asked for a high chair. We arrived at noon and there was no one in the dining room. We were brought to our table. We asked about the high chair and he said they don't any. The restaurant obviously is not family friendly... More

Four adults. Bill for dinner was over $600. Done around 10:00 pm. Our designated driver asked for another cup of coffee. Waiter with the painted-on black hair was unhappy and stomped off for the coffee pot. As he poured the coffee, the waiter stared in her face and said "All night diner. All diner" in a very rude way. He... More

We are regulars at this place simply because it is our most favorite restaurant for dinner in St Catharines. The very friendly staff that makes you feel at home and the tasty food especially the centennial platter which is a must try in addition to the pleasant atmosphere all makes it a favorite place for special occasions.

Sue later informed me that he was the owner. He knew Sue through some earlier business dealings and greeted her like family. We were escorted to our table and... More

We were a group of 16 (8 couples) on Dec.10/16. We were seated at one long table and it was too tight. Our reservation was at 7pm and we were served our food at 8:30pm. (I do understand that it is a very busy time of the year) The Caesar salad (which was prepared at the table) was excellent! Probably... More

This may sound odd for a review on a restaurant but bear me out. The place is spotless. Incredibly clean which tells me they pay great attention to detail in every faucet of the business. David was our server. What a pure joy to have someone taking care of you of that kind of professionalism. Went there for my "birthday... More

I have been at the Blue Mermaid many, many times for a period over 30 years. It is very good and classy. The service is excellent and the food is consistently up to par. Of course, it is an expensive restaurant! The only drawback of The Blue Mermaid is that it has no view at all. As a matter of... More
