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.

Very disappointed and not up to standard. We have been coming to Signatures regularly for years and rarely disappointed until now. Difficulties started with planning wife's 60th and lack of attention should have been a heads up for staffing issues they are having. Server whom we've not seen before went out of his way to insult virtually everyone in our dinner party through the evening and his attitude was uncalled for. All new staff faces in the restaurant are new and the change suggests significant problems and growing pains in the upcoming future for clientele so be aware. Food was disappointing and bland. Entire evening was off at a usually very dependable location. I hope they get their act back together sooner than later as cost does not reflect current standard of service or food at a formerly very reliable restaurant.

Our evening was absolutely amazing! From being welcomed at the door, to our knowledgeable servers. We (4) all loved our meals, the dinners were beyond delicious. We also appreciated dining in the peace and quiet of the restaurant even the servers were soft spoken. It was a great experience from start to finish. Thank you! The McKelvey & Varden Families

yes, 5 stars of 5 for everything... my friend (belated birthday celebration) just cannot stop talking about the evening (which happened 2 nights ago), lol; we felt like royalty (sans stiffness and rules), still floating on cloud nine. Signatures is an exceptional place and a place to treasure, for sure - classy and elegant atmosphere, very charming and super knowledgeable wait and host staff, every plate was an exciting adventure in presentation (i.e. a masterpiece of culinary art) and flavor (escargot tart was out this world, whoever came up with it is my new hero). hoping to visit it again (and again) soon :)

We were there on the first day of opening after the Christmas break. The menu was not as indicated on the Signatures website. We were not the only guests to query this. My teenage grandchildren had made their selection from the website and were eagerly anticipating their choices. However, what we were offered was satisfactory and well presented.

We went to Signatures for a family lunch for five to celebrate our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. We had been a few times before, and were never disappointed. Our celebratory lunch was very special thanks to the beautiful care and attention at Signatures. We were in a private dining room, the staff were charming and kind, and of course the meal was divine. A very special day, made even more beautiful thanks to everyone at the restaurant. Christina

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.
