We had a delightful evening. The food was excellent, compliments to the chef. We had a few allergy challenges and they were covered off in a friendly and delicious manner. We appreciated everything. We will be back!

My husband and I had a recent date night at Boland's and had a wonderful meal, great service and overall fabulous evening. The owner even comes out to personally talk to each table to say hi. Highly recommend Boland's!

Service lacked - waitress was so flustered and intense that she didn't connect with clients and lacked warmth. Waited way too long for menus, then drinks, then when meal came had no cutlery. Small things but service was poor. Food okay.- big portions if you like that. Clientele older. Placed seems busy though so they have a following. Was offered a complimentary night cap which was a nice touch.

this is our favourite neighbourhood spot -the food is always great, service friendly and efficient, we never feel rushed. A lovely cozy spot to enjoy a relaxing and delicious dinner with friends. Also, if you enjoy liver and aren't allowed to cook it home...go here :)

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Our appetizers alone are worth going back for; he: mushroom soufflé (daily special) and mine: crab and boursin soufflé . Both delicious. I had the liver appetizer as a main: loved it. My friend had the cod with trout mousse. He declared the trout mousse to be superb. The fish was perfectly cooked but unfortunately, it was under seasoned. It had a dusting of pistachio which was much too subtle (perhaps it was inadvertently left off?) but in any case, the fish, while itself was expertly cooked, it would have benefited from a miso or lemon glaze and seasoning. Otherwise the meal was perfection. The vegetables were appropriately al dente and well seasoned. Our waiter was very attentive, very responsive, and couldn't have done a better job at making our evening pleasant and enjoyable. We look forward to going back again very soon.

Excellent fresh cod was the best I've ever had. Chris Boland, the owner, is extremely knowledgable about wine, especially wrt food pairings. We appreciated the attentive service and cosy surroundings. it must be a neighbourhood favourite as we heard one mother/daughter couple drop in "just for the yummy mashed potatoes"

New Year's celebration enhanced with helium balloons, horns, glitter hats and a glass of bubbly! However, the musical ensemble was not appropriate for the festive occasion and lack lustre. Appetizers and tasting plates were fabulous! Re. the main - the roast beef, although tender and nicely seasoned was grossly undercooked and not to our specifications - which was "well-done"; reported our dissatisfaction to server, but he was indifferent. Nice selection of desserts. Our server was pleasant.

We enjoyed the food very much as usual . We also enjoyed and appritiated the present of one free main corse. The only draw back was the fact that I forgot the cupon I printed out from my email and when I told the waiter about that and even showed him the email addresses to me from your restaurant I was told that next time it will not be excepted . I think it was very rude of him and not his place to lecture me. That. being said, we love the food and the restaurant . Thank you Marina

Unfortunately a very poor overall dining experience. We went on a Wednesday night with reservations and the restaurant was completely full. We were seated promptly and our order was quickly and cheerfully taken. Our pate appetizer was brought reasonably quickly although the pate portion was quite small but flavourful. Then it went down hill from there. We waited and waited for our main course with no explanation being offered until we asked what was going on. The harried server explained that they had accepted too many reservations for the time period resulting in theIr small kitchen being totally overwhelmed. We were not at all amused and neither were the many other patrons who were left waiting too. No offer was made to alleviate or compensate us for the wait so we asked for bread to be brought to the table while we waited. Over 1 hour after ordering, our mains finally arrived. The lamb rack was cooked exactly as ordered and was high quality meat but with not much spicing. The accompanying veggies were bland and totally not up to the quality of the meat. My wife had the veal cheeks which were tender if somewhat fatty. Her veggies at least had some asparagus which made the dish more interesting but certainly not worth a 1 hr plus wait. The management of the restaurant has been around long enough to know better than to accept so many diners at once which inevitably will result in their kitchen being swamped. The lack of any apparent caring about this situation with no offer of any compensation will result in us not returning to this restaurant.

Food is always good at Bolands. Service was ok, friendly but sketchy...waited quite a while for wine.....once meal was served, waitress asked if we were enjoying the meal about a half hour after it was served. Also, only asked if we wanted more wine once the meal was over. The restaurant was not terribly busy, so not sure why. There were two wait staff, neither appeared to be rushed or overly preoccupied with demanding clients. But, overall, enjoyed it and will definitely be back!
