Now this is awkward.

I feel bad for Simply Delicious/SD Galleria. I came here a ton when they were known as Simply Delcious, in its pre-Galleria days, mostly because it was one of the few sit-down cheap places in the neighbourhood and didn't require lining up. They didn't get much business then, and with this new look, I can't imagine they will last very long.

I found the quality of the food to be the same as before, solid, but nothing remotely amazing. Decent value, not dirt cheap, but definitely affordable. The service has definitely improved, but I don't approve of the new dress code for waitresses - shirt skirts, low cut tops...it seems a little sleazy of the management to me. The decor is perhaps the biggest difference, an assortment of comic book covers, records, and a faux Mona Lisa...there's quite a bit to look at now! It's kinda tacky, not gonna lie...but I don't mind tacky that much, so it's not necessarily a bad thing to me.

I've been here twice since it became SD Galleria, once with a group of 4, and then with a group of 6. The first time, they place was not super busy, but they definitely had customers, and I didn't feel bothered or distracted from my meal. The second time however, half of the place was filled with high school kids and young college kids who had just turned legal - there was about 40 of them....not eating, but talking loudly, dancing to the bad DJ, and smoking on the patio outside. This was irritating; the last thing I want during my meal is to be distracted by skanky teenagers and second hand smoke. My group almost left, but because the waitress was friendly when we came in, we decided to eat as quickly as possible, and finish off the evening at the Mcdonald's down the street.

I understand that 40 teenagers would seem like good business to management, but the fact that the bulk of them were standing around and not ordering food doesn't seem to balance out this equation, and it only serves to bother other customers more. I would have been back to SD Galleria for the cheap solid food since that last visit in February, but I haven't for fear that there may be another noisy group of 40 there disturbing my meal.

I've been here a few times. I love the food, and I've never had any problems with the service, the waitors/waitresses are always friendly. The pricing is good for the food quality, the spinach salad is always my fallback when I can't decide what to order, it's awesome! There's usually a line-up at dinner time and sometimes, even for lunch. I'll be back for sure!

okay place, not anything special

I actually couldn't tell it was a Mediterranean place...I sorta had an idea with the souvlaki and hummous on the menu, but other than that, it seemed more like a burger-and-fries place. I went on a Sunday afternoon with about 7 people, and we were walking by (hungry), and decided to just try it.

The service...oh the service. First of all, there were 3 waitresses working on a busy Sunday afternoon, which I don't understand. Secondly, we literally had to flag down a waitress (like flagging down a cab) to take our order. And then our food didn't arrive for almost another hour. The excuse was that they had a party of 15...which okay, I understand. But two tables around us, who had arrived AFTER we arrived and ordered, had already received THEIR food. There's no excuses for that. Now the waitresses, when they weren't helping customers, tended to gather at the bar together and socialize, and didn't actually look at their customers to see if anyone needed help. To be fair, they WERE nice to us, but that didn't make up for it. Needless to say, we didn't tip very much.

The food was just okay, nothing special. The pricing is okay. I would come back, if only the service wasn't so crappy.

I come here often with my friends when we're wanting a late night snack. I've tried coming here after school to study (cause they have free wireless internet), but there's too many noisy high school kids who come here at the same time. The bubble tea is okay...it depends on what you get (and who's making it). It'll either be really great, or sorta tasteless. The crepes are always good though. The decor is definitely on the trendy side, but it's not horrific. The service is always good, you're helped quickly, and they let you know right away how long the wait will be (if there is a wait).
