Food overpriced. Service slow. 1 1/2 hours before we had our meal. Fish overcooked. 1 out of 5 of us enjoyed their meal. No one seemed to care if we enjoyed our meal or not.

My wife and I went to the Blackhorn for lunch, a first time. She had steak that was tasty and perfectly cooked, and I had the schnitzel, again perfectly cooked, and correct schnitzel size. The service was very good.

Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a
district heavily influenced by immigration. With a
number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise
green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for
bargains and discounts. It also draws in
