Boston Pizza serves up gourmet pizzas, pastas and a wide variety of appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts in casual, family friendly setting. The restaurant also has plenty of big screen TVs to catch the big game.
Just read the other review for this location and it's sad that the reviewer thought that "kids running around" is a negative for this restaurant. Yes there were kids in that area of the restaurant and if that was such a turn off, maybe they should have gone to the bar section, instead of the family section... Regardless, there were a few kids in the family section last night. They were wonderful to watch, as were the parents. Families having dinner together, what a great concept!
Now to our meal. Paul, the owner, sat us down and gave us the menus. Jessica was great, acknowledging our presence as she was busy with another order. Then she took our wine order and cleverly paused to see if we were ready for our meal order. No, needed a few more minutes. Brought the wine and paused to see if we were ready to order, nope, not quite. Later, as she and her co-workers were buzzing around the restaurant, I caught her eye and she was over in a flash. Ordered our meals and savoured the Robert Mondavi wine. It didn't take long for the dishes to be served.
After we had finished the entrees, Jessica came around and asked about dessert. I said yes, and motioned to her that we had a coupon and an Air Miles promotion. She said, "I'll take care of that" and was back with our dessert and the bill, showing the discount and the triple Air Miles promotion.
It was our anniversary and so we were happy to be there. I will say that $16.95 for each pasta dish is a bit on the pricey side but the experience was worth it. Some of the 20 people in the lobby, waiting to be seated as we left, must agree with us.
Just dined at Boston Pizza and will not be returning. The atmosphere is noisy and the food is hardly anything to write home about. Oil is out folks, healthy is in. The kids in this location really need to go to the play area of some lowly chain and obviously I would never contemplate Boston Pizza for a special occasion. The chain is targetting the low end presumably.
in fact I am sure we will not return. In the last few years I guess Boston Pizza has turned into a low grade family restaurant. Gone is the hip atmosphere, hip waiters and trendiness. This time we ordered pizza but didnt bother with wines because there were toddlers crying and kids running in the aisle. I guess they have given up to Cactus Club and Socialhouse and are trying to now be in the same league as Red Robin and White Spot. Too bad for them.
This place shows you fresh foods in the menu, but everything comes out burnt, over cooked, or just plain gross.
I was better off cooking at home. They served my 3 year old burnt food, who does that?
I suggest this franchise is a good place to take kids, and should really start looking into fresh foods, and less into frozen foods.
