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.

We were treated like royalty, from the very moment we entered this beautiful restaurant. The wine pairings were skillfully selected and presented, and the food was surprisingly, artfully arranged on the plates and explained to us in great detail. We would recommend Signatures to any couple celebrating a special occasion! Take the time to thoroughly appreciate this very special dining experience and their exceptional staff!

As a regular customer I have become increasingly disappointed throughout the past year. While the plating remains superb everything else has deteriorated.. yesterday’s portions would hardly qualify as a small plate, I suspect the trout could not have weighed more than 3 oz. the desert was like a nursing home offering. Last year when I completed this survey I commented on how the desserts used to be a real star of the meal I would not object to the increased rice if the food had not suffered. I urge you to solve these problems ASAP it would be a crime to allow this beautiful space and service to die . Marie Bhaneja

It was the first time at Signatures for my guests and they were all impressed! They message me the next day to thank me for a wonderful experience which they said: “WOW Amazing Restaurant, Amazing Service and Amazing “Bouffe” you really know how to treat people! I have been an on going customer and the waiter that evening was exceptional he went over and above. He was outstanding and extremely knowledgeable he explained everything in details for both the food and the wine. You have a fantastic waiter in place and of course the “Chef”. We enjoyed the 5 course meal paired with wine. I always recommend Signatures to family and friends it’s a wonderful establishment!

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.
