I was only interested in checking out Black & Blue this year, but for a steakhouse they aren't even offering STEAK on the menu?!... wtf ...

Joe Fortes always has a solid menu to choose from, maybe I'll go to MARKET... or maybe I'll just skip it all this year, $38 isn't exactly cheap anymore anyway, with a glass of wine (or 2, or 3) it's already over $100, and I don't care much for the desserts, so I'm basically paying the same on non-dineout meals at these restaurants ...

I spent $300+ at Blue Water for 2 and was barely satisfied

That's like going to a Chinese restaurant and there is no fried rice on the menu.

Chambar, usual dine out menu (note: they only do Dine Out exclusively during the period)

Joe Fortes; good value menu; enjoyed the Chowder, steak was perfectly done and desserts were good (full menu in addition to Dine Out)

Heard good things about Five Sails

Went to Yew on Saturday and it sucked shit. Service was shit, the waiter did not fill our water at all when he filled the table beside us and saw that our glass was nearly empty. Also had to wait like 20 min for the bill even though he walked by several times and saw that we were finished our desserts. (which sucked too) The restaurant was not even busy at all.

I went to Fish Shack for the $18 dollar menu. Food was not bad. The fish and chip came with one piece of salmon. The donut dessert wasn't that great. Bill came to $77 dollars for 2 people after drinks and tip.

That's too bad.

I've always enjoyed my time at Yew, from the food to the service. This is part of the reason why I don't do Dine Out anymore. Restaurants sometimes have to sacrifice a few things, be it quality of food or service because it's the slowest time of year for all restaurants. You should send an e-mail to the general manager and see if they will make things right. But for reference from an industry professional, see below.

The places are full of people who rarely get out and the restaurants couldn't give a shit if they saw them before next years dine-out, as they know their best customers are staying home to avoid the crowds. Its a likely way to go to an awesome restaurant you've been wanting to try, and leave saying "hmmm, that was not what I expected."

Went to L'Abattoir on Sunday night. I was pleasantly surprised - food was pretty good, service was good. I thought it would be a fancier place - but the ambience overall was pretty casual. The servers were really helpful.

$38 a meal, plus $12 for a glass of wine. I thought the food was pretty decent, the gravy on my pork shoulder was a little salty, but that's my personal preference.

L'Abattoir is one of my favourite restaurants in the city. They have things down to a science (literally in a culinary perspective) also one of my best friends is a server there. He is already dying from dine out so far he told me. They do a great job their of treading the line between casual and classy. Great food and service without the dated stuffy feel.

DO NOT GO TO GRIFFINS

Went there over the weekend and it was horrible. Service was terrible and they ran out of yorkshire pudding for their prime rib entree (which was an extra $10) by 830

I went here for a dinner a little over a year ago since I had heard good things about it. Man was I disappointed. Had the sable fish with an oxtail ravioli. What I got was a bland piece of fish, a piece of ravioli with some bok choy and some broth to on top. It looked like they tried to do Chinese fusion but failed on so many levels. Definitely won't be coming back.

Griffins, in general, is pretty failsauce.

Herons at fairmont

Appetizer was seafood chowder with grapefruit
Wasn't appetizing at all grapefruit just made everything bitter
Entree was short ribs really tender but small ass portions
Chocolate cake for dessert was pretty good

Overall not worth 38 bucks
Wish I could upload photos on phone

I'm actually going to end up doing 2 dineouts this year, but not because I and the missus wanted to.

I went to Carthage Cafe on Commercial on Friday and had their $28 menu. I was surprised to see that the main was a full size portion that was normally $24. So, I basically paid another $4 for a salad and a piece of baklava. The table added a bottle of wine, so with taxes and grats, it came out to about $50 per person.

I'm heading to Abigail's Party in Kits later this week (another $28 place). I've heard nothing but good reviews about the place, so hopefully, I'm not let down.
