Didn't honour the coupon
Submitted Thursday, November 28, 2013 - 2:56pm [Dine in]

I wished I had read some reviews on Salvatore's restaurants before we went there. The coupon said, "$10 off the regular menu". So we had $15 lunch items and presented the coupon. Waiter said the menu had already been discounted. What? We purposely ignored the Specials Menu and ordered from the menu that he gave us. Waiter said that they had another "regular" menu and sure enough, he brought one and every item was $5 higher on that menu. False Advertising !! Wow, what an outrageous price for Veal Parmigana at $20 !! Will not ever be going back.

Dinner out, again, is a GO
Submitted Tuesday, November 30, 2010 - 12:10am [Dine in]

We were seated quickly and given menus. Pretty standard and then Lisa came over and said she was here to take care of us. So refreshing! Would we like something to drink? Give us a minute to review the menu.

So we ordered a bottle of Savignon Blanc, a little pricey but do the math, it's about 2 drinks each for the 2 of us and that's cheaper than $9 per glass. This was a birthday celebration so spare no expense....

Chicken, 2 items on the menu appealed to us, Portobello Mushroom Chicken and Chicken Masala. The meals were both very aromatic, tasted great and there was much more starch there than we needed. The size of the Mushroom chicken breast was awesome while the volume of the Masala chicken chunks were a little wanting.

The atmosphere, (the decor), the service and the food were great and we'll do it again. The price of it all was a little over the top, $35 for wine, $20 for each entree, but the gift card helped. Depending on your station in life, the experience here can be just fabulous. Hopefully you can enjoy.

Friday night out
Submitted Saturday, October 9, 2010 - 12:17pm [Dine in]

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.

Dependable Service even on Event Night
Submitted Sunday, May 16, 2010 - 9:08pm [Dine in]

There was a line up Friday night and so we knew it was going to be tough getting a table inside. Reception said that there was room on the patio and we could still hear the Canuck game, with the possibility of seeing replays. We agreed.

It was a busy night so understandable that we were given over 5 minutes to study the menu. We wondered about our choice of restaurant but then the waitress came, apologizing. So we ordered and hoped and listened to the game.

From there on, it was delightful. Our wine order came quickly and hot on its heels came our appies. Barely finished them and our main course came out. Shortly after that, she came back to check on us and not with the Yes-No, is it okay? but rather, how do you like it? Great portion of chicken on my Caesar and lots of chicken breast for my wife.

The wine ended and shortly there after, waitress offering more. Barely finished the entrees and she was there, what else would we like. We were stuffed so asked for just the bill. Left there with a great experience and went home to watch the end of the game. Winning evening, both with Boston Pizza, (who are so much more than just Pizza), and the Canucks. Now, while the Canucks are gone for the season, BP is still there offering up a great experience.

Even a Greek likes this place
Submitted Saturday, December 19, 2009 - 2:00pm [Dine in]

Went to celebrate b'day with a greek, 8 of us. We were seated quickly, drinks came quickly, and then, because we were so busy chatting, I noticed that the waitress was hovering, just waiting for us to get ready to order.

One of the guys knew the secret of this restaurant's success, to not season the food in the traditional Greek style. So we ordered extra Basil, Orageno on the side. Food came quickly, pretty healthy portions. Lamb was done right, flavourful; Caesar Salad, chicken on the side, great value. We all enjoyed the food and the fun time.

One small issue was the cost of House White, $20 per half litre. Okay, it was Robert Mondavi, but that is still a little pricey.

Otherwise, a great evening and we'll be back.

Just Great Food, but may have to take it somewhere...
Submitted Wednesday, December 16, 2009 - 9:14pm [Dine in]

Decided to go back there after a disappointing experience with Indian elsewhere. The Food has always been delightfull and again, no exception today. I read someone say that the butter chicken was a little dry, but it is served with curry sauce, so go figure. Veggies on the cast iron hot plate, just awesome and not burnt. Rice, Naan, what more can you ask for? Well maybe a little lower volume on the Bollywood and some improved ambiance, but the food is overwhelming in both volume & taste. Food came fast. Take it out or get it delivered if you need romance.

For where it is, it's great
Submitted Sunday, November 29, 2009 - 10:34pm [Dine in]

Many issues come to play here at Taco Luis. The owner knows you, there is fexibility in the menu, and the cost is acceptable. Good food and a delight to be in the line-up with fellow lovers of simple, quick and satisfying food. Wish the business was somewhere else where a real experience could be had but for what it is, where it is, it's awesome.

Sad ; I didn't check here b4 going there
Submitted Sunday, November 29, 2009 - 3:01pm [Dine in]

I believed the ad, "Voted Number 1". I have no idea how that could have happened. Food: it was such a let down compared to other "Tandori's" that we have been to. The chicken arrived dry on the red-hot steel skillet that was proceeding to burn the onions. The butter chicken was cut to the size of dice and hard to find in the sauce. The coupon said we had to order an appetizer to get the $9 discount. So we ordered onion rings. They came powder dry and no onion was actually encountered. The menu was also a surprise: "Chinese" style where we needed to order a meat, then a veggie tray and then a starch. Service: Okay, maybe 5PM on a Saturday was inappropriate for dinner, but it was dark out and we were hungry. We were given menus by a staff memeber, seated and then were left there. Water was not offered. At 5:15, a person came into the restaurant and went to the back, coming back out later with an apron and tidied up the till area. 5:20 some greater commotion in the kitchen finally resulted in that waitress coming over with an order book. No friendly Hi or how are you, (she had not introduced herself to us). There was a "suggestion" of "What would you like", hardly audible, but there was the pen ready to write, so we made our meat choices. She asked if we wanted rice or something that prompted us to ask what was included in the meat dishes. Nothing was the reply. So we ordered some rice. It took 15 more minutes until the food arrived. Value: ouch, at $13.95 per dish, rice and appetizer, we were choked at the almost $40 bill. That was after for going the $10 for the veggie tray that we were contemplating until we saw the price. Ambiance, it didn't exist. Music finally came on to attempt to drown out the constant yelling and commotion in the kitchen. A really sad experience that I will not ever be repeating.

The Entertainment Coupon makes it
Submitted Friday, December 5, 2008 - 3:20pm [Dine in]

Worthwhile...

I have to agree with some of the negative points from the first reviewer but there were some redeeming values at this place too. We made reservations as this was 7 PM Friday night. When we got there, we were escorted to a table marked Reserve. It had a window and the farthest away from the kitchen.

The waiter took maybe 2 minutes to get to us: the place had some 8 tables occupied and in these economic times, I can understand the visible staff, 3 in all. The wine selection came quite quickly and he took our order. Shortly there after, the French bread slices and whipped butter patties were served.

We had chosen a Chicken breast and a Seafood Supreme dish. No problem with a switch to salad instead of starch. The order might have taken a little longer than at other restaurants, but the taste was awesome and portion sizes were huge. With the 2 for 1 coupon, the $19 entrees were worth it. We asked for a doggie bag home and after commenting on how tasty the bread was, the waiter came back with the bill and 4 more slices of bread, in a convenient container.

It was noted that PST was charged on the whole bill and then the discount applied. Just as Revenue Canada wants. Maybe some people might argue the point but I appreciate following the rules. Bodes well for the restaurant staff who probably follow all the other government regulations.

Ambiance: some orginal artwork that adds to the wall decorations.

All in all, a worthwhile evening. A balance between service and price. Well worth the cost of food. We'll be back, (with next year's coupon).

A year later than the first review
Submitted Saturday, December 15, 2007 - 2:11pm [Dine in]

Well, that first review painted a sad picture of this place. I was here about 10 years ago and it was pretty fantastic. Maybe because of the waitress that was there, Pam, on the last day she worked there. Anyway, found that the Queensborough Bridge was jammed up so backed up and decided to vist Tugboat again, on a Thursday evening, 7 PM.

The upstairs formal part was vacant but the bar and the outside smoking area were jammed full. Found a table way in the back away from some of the louder tables. The 2 waitresses were overwhelmed with the crowd but mentioned, "I'll get to you as soon as I can". Not really assuring but then she did stop by about 5 min later and took our drink and dinner orders.

She tried to drop some rye drinks on our table, but we said, No, it was white wine... Oops, and a minute later we had our wine. Funny, no wine cooler bucket like the guy at the bar got...

Then the clam chouder. It was incredibly good. Often a restaurant will fill the bowl with potatoe chunks and a little clam, just the opposite here, a puree of clam, veggies and sause. Delightful. The waitress was showing us some more attention.

Then the grilled chicken breast for me, chicken wings for her. Both very well done. She ate about 8 or 9 wings and we took 6 home. We had ordered a dozen, love the math.

The table was cleared, took our money and we left. There were a few less people in the pub at that time, so the service was just fine. If you want a boistrous and entertaining time, this would be great. In our situation, the place was fine. I would imagine that "Lindsay", the last year waitress, has gone on...

Good Food - Medium overall
Submitted Friday, December 29, 2006 - 12:46am [Dine in]

We were at this place a year ago, before the DineHere site was up, and were quite impressed. Breakie for 8 of us and it was flawless. Did not see the check so cannot rate that part of the meal, but it was a favourable, past experience. Decided to do it again. Maybe it was an off day? It took a moment or two before we were seated. It was a moment or two before the server came around to take our breakie orders. Might mention that the food arrived quite quickly and when you are dealing with eggs and toast, that is most important. So the food arrived and was demolished with relish. Then, there we sat. No One Came Back to see if we were still alive or if we had failed the poison test. Needing to get back to work, we took the check, (which finally arrived), to the front so that I could pay and get out of there. Sad that the food was great, actually, so absolutely awesome, and here I am remembering the staff, clerical delays... That's what happened. Hopefully just an odd staff off day.

The make-over from Troll's to Laguna is great. The Salad bar is gone, the booths are gone and there is now a dance floor in the back. Rich cloth coverings. Rarely do we order Caesar salad because Jane does such a great job of it at home, but hey, we ordered anyway and it was awesome, tangy garlic, balsamic? Next the main course, ample servings for $16 each, a little oily but I'm sure it was 0 Trans Fat. Great veggies. Through out it all, a stream of music, some GodFather, some more rousty. Overall a delightful experience. It was Tuesday, small clientele, so maybe we got a little more attention than one would on the weekend. Coupon from Con Amore & Sapore is accepted weekdays.

We found the pub to be very loud with televisions and the crowd fighting themselves. Very little comforatable seating, mostly 3' rounds with stools. Caters to the 20's age group, if that is what you're looking for. The food was good but only affordable with the 2 for 1 coupon.
