Had Lunch @ Dominion Diner today and really surprised on their great service…

Great Sandwich… Great Value…

Been meaning to give it a chance and glad I met up with friend for lunch today…

It smelled so good when I first walked in, friend was late and just sat their having a coffee and a tart…

As far as I can tell everything was made in house…

Even took home some take out dinners for me and the wife tonight…

I will be back and glad and gave it a chance….

Thanks again !!!

My poor nostrils.

I have the misfortune of huffing in the disgusting scent of this restaurant every morning and evening, coming and leaving work.

Against my better judgement, I decided to try the Waffle Sandwich. What a mistake. There is no silver lining in this dark cloud. Poorly crafted soggy waffles. Think Best Western breakfast (but worse). Incorrectly and over seasoned grease 'patty' and some other grease fried mystery meat and burnt egg. Add some lettuce and tomato for no apparent reason and you have this monstrosity. After one bite and and glistening fingers I had to put it down spit it out and rinse my mouth with Listerine. Why would anyone want to eat this? Why? I guess it's a less messy way to commit suicide. The potato pancakes were just soggy vegetable oiled rinsed hashbrowns shaped into a hockey puck and lazily fried on the flat top. The food is bad, and I've heard nothing but poor reviews from colleagues and other tenants in the building.

The service and staff are bizarre. I'm sorry to be rude and blunt, but don't have an open kitchen if you're going to have your staff create food and service clients looking like they just rolled out of bed without appropriate kitchen attire. Also staff conducts themselves as if they're in a dive bar. Which leads me to the ambiance of this place. Not much to say I guess, It's ugly, and absolutely designed by a guy. I've never seen more than 2 people in this place where safeway/bumpy's and good earth are always busy.

It's unfortunate that we waited over a year for a restaurant to open downstairs only to get this.

Overhaul your staff, menu, pricing and cooking practices and maybe you'll be successful. Or Don't. I don't care, I won't ever be back

New "Diner"

Sometimes the truth hurts.

Food - Ordered the pulled chicken sandwich. This consisted of large chunks of dry, flavorless chicken breast (and some other pieces) dipped in some type of orange/red sauce with lettuce and cheddar cheese. There was too much lettuce and bread. I found myself pulling off pieces to get to the meat. The only side was a pickle. The single worst pickle I have ever tried. It tasted like a cucumber had been soaked in vinegar for fifteen minutes then rinsed off with tepid water.

Service - People seemed friendly enough. However when they pass you the terminal to pay with card you have to tip 10, 20 or 25% before you've even tried the food!? I'm not a fan of tipping when I have to go up to pay, order and retrieve my food.

Value - Over priced. Was maybe a $6.50 sandwich tops.

Ambiance - I don't think they could decide what look they were going for. Decorations really only amounted to a bunch of printed google image search old pictures related to the word dominion. Music was good but didnt
