We decided to try out Griffins since it was in the entertainment book. This place is a pretty good find when you're hungry downtown.
The restaurant is located in the Fairmont hotel. The decor was something different and kind of nice. Kind of a retro / classic feel. The menu looked a teensy bit on the expensive side (around $30 for an entree). Luckily that comes with the dessert buffet so it was still a decent deal, especially if you have a coupon!
We ordered a mixed grill platter and the steak. The mix grill came with chicken, lamb chops, and steak. My steak entree was huge and delicious! I also love their fries and mashed potatoes, but alas, only so much room...
By the time we started on the dessert buffet I was already unbelievably full. Also I'm not huge on desserts (like 'em but not obsessed with them). That being said the buffet had a very impressive selection. There was plum pudding, cheesecake, chocolate mousse, pie, cake, creme caramel, cream puffs... After sampling four or five of these items, my stomach was about ready to explode. The conclusion was that the desserts were good, but nothing to write home about except the variety available.
I would recommend at least giving this place a try.
