Last night we celebrated another Anniversary at Signatures. Each time we go we are overwhelmed with the incredible food and outstanding service. They seated us in our favourite 'red' room and had it all to ourself...what a easant surprise as it was so quaint and romantic. I want to thank our incredible and very knowledgeable waiter David....he really gave us outstanding service and helped to create a beautiful evening for us...we will be back again for more Anniversaries..and maybe before

Great Lunch

Having been here for dinner before, some friends and I decided to try their lunch. This was actually in the part of the restaurant called Bistro Cordonbleu and it is operated by students studying at the Cordonbleu School. Each lunch is a fixed menu, so check the website since the menu constantly changes. One gets a glass of wine and a coffee as part of the fixed price, but you can always order more beverages at an additional price. Each of the 3 courses were excellently prepared. It was all very delicious. The guys working in the kitchen will clearly have great careers as chefs when they graduate. The students waiting on the tables were very polite but they lacked polish. They could have been a wee bit more attentive, but we were basically served well. The atmosphere was very nice and we felt very relaxed. Parking was a bit of a problem and we found it odd that their parking lot was completely full.

If you want a fabulous food experience order the menu de gustation with the wine pairing. It really is an evening's entertainment. You will be expertly served several small dishes that each in its own way will delight you. With the wine pairing, you will always have a great accompaniment. Even though I have a very large appetite, I felt completely sated by the end of the meal.

When we arrived there, we were warmly welcomed. We had excellent suggestions on orders from our waited. What i loved the most about the place is the wine. Putting the right wine with the right food is their specialty. It is some how expensive but the experience is unforgettable. I would definitely go again.

When two in your party have extra courses but the resturant does not wish to see them doing nothing while the other two enjoy their course, why not bring a little something for them to nosh on. This is the kind of service that is to be expected at this 5 Diamond resturant. I cannot say enough of the service and food at this place. The standard is definately set here and all others have a long long way to come to meet this level of excellence.

The service in this restaurant is truly spectacular. The food, however, was aboslutely horrendous, not so much lacking in taste, as just completely plain and simple. The portions are not only very small, they also lack in quality. Frankly, we might as well have opened a canned product... this was a great disappointment.

The food was beautiful and looked like a work of art. It was flavourful, creative, with a creative use of textures and taste. The risotto was a stand out and the duck was perfect. The escargots were a rich dish with many delicious ingredients. The restaurant was a quiet spot, great for conversation and a leisurely meal. We did not feel rushed at all. Our service should have been better. The servers were friendly and explained each dish which we appreciated. They also explained there was a large party that night so our service would be slow, which was fine. However it seemed like the servers forgot about us. We did not get any bread until after our appetizers, while other tables had several rounds. We also discovered what looked like a bunched up long blue thread in the scallops and showed it to our server. She took it away but that meant we had one less scallop to enjoy. Another server tried to remedy the situation with a glass of champagne but we didn’t want champagne so no one drank it. It turned out to be a waste when what we actually wanted was a thread-free scallop that we paid for.

Atmosphere was great, service was perfect except for the second waiter confusing plates and removing cutlery from a plate rather than replacing it. Food was very good, disappointed with the 5 course meal though, would suggest going 'a la carte'. Although the 5 course meal offers more variety, the portions are much smaller and the sides on the 'a la carte' menu compensate for the variety.

Excellent service in a calm atmosphere with muted classical music backdrop. The waiter expertly described every dish, and the food presentation was as elegant as the morsels were delicious! While two people enjoyed the five course dinner and two ate à la carte, every dish was beautiful and succulent. Signatures is an excellent choice of restaurant to celebrate a special occasion!

Since there was a large party on the main floor the evening we reserved, we were given a room at the top of the mansion with just enough room for a party of four. It was private and intimate. The table service was impeccable with our server explaining each dish in detail. The menu was interesting. Our choices were well presented and pleasing to both the eye and to the taste. A perfect evening.

Our group of friends hadn’t seen each other over the summer and decided to get together at Signature. An amazing restaurant!!! Everyone enjoyed their meal, not only the delicious flavors we were tasting from every bites, but the special touch in the presentation as our plates were brought to us. We loved our appetizers of Pickled Mushroom Salads and Roasted Pepper and /eggplant Soup. Our Veal Loin and Arctic Char Filet were cooked to perfection!!! Finishing our meal with the Maple custard/Walnut Cake was just pure pleasure. Even if our meal was perfect, I can’t forget to mention that our Front of the House Servers were exceptional, very attentive and friendly and making certain that we were please with everything. Before we went our separate ways, we decided to make plan for another get-together at Signature, which we will be bringing other friends who were so disappointed that they couldn’t join us since they have previous plans. Thank you for giving us such a wonderful experience. Doreen Leclerc-Comtois

Not surprisingly, French wines reign supreme at the lone Canadian outpost of the legendary Cordon Bleu culinary institute. However, you’ll also find Italian and Canadian sparkling wines, at prices ranging from modest to stratospheric. Housed in a Victorian mansion, Signatures offers inventive takes on classic French cuisine, such as sautéed escargots with celery root purée or venison loin with port wine figs. Thoughtful touches and unexpected amuse-bouches make it a popular destination for special occasions.
